About Funtierland

Hi there it's Leah and Ryan, proud owners of Funtierland Vacation Rentals! My husband and I are true Southern California locals, born and raised just a stones throw from Disneyland where we've visited since before we could walk (or talk). In fact, I worked at Disneyland through high school and part of college as an Attraction's Hostess on rides like Indiana Jones! Given our deep local roots, Ryan and I embarked on a journey to help spread the magic our hometown offers by curating a portfolio of fun, relevant vacation rental properties, and offering them to guests from across the country and around the world :)

Why Funtierland chose Hermosa Village

You may recognize this as a Castle House property. The owners have carefully vetted property management companies and are thrilled to have us manage their homes. We have proven Funtierland's ability to maintain an impeccably high level of customer satisfaction while maximizing the owner's return, and positioning our suite of services as the benchmark by which all others are measured (the hubby wrote that long sentence ;) After outlining the owner's objectives, we implemented our proven Funtierland formula including paying close attention to detail, and of course, best-in-class customer support. All this (combined with a few super-secret ingredients we keep under lock and key) has resulted in a unique blend, entirely our own, that we continue to perfect with every home we add to our exclusive Funtierland portfolio!

What makes this house unique

Castle House 1 is a large private home complete with private pool, spa, and outdoor entertaining with plenty of room for the entire family. F21 is so close to the parks you can easily take your family home for naps or lunch, take in a swim and return to Disneyland for the evening festivities. The view of the fireworks is almost as good as seeing them at the park. All this including uniquely themed rooms and our focus on providing the ultimate guest experience makes this Funtierland property a truly unique find!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was a perfect place for a long planned family holiday. The kids loved the pool and it was hard to keep them out of it! Loved being bale to walk to Disneyland and found getting around an ease. Watching the fireworks was fun and eagerly awaited. Can't wait to share our experience here with our friends. Thanks for all your help prior to staying too.

It's like Disneyland at home!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 1, 2014

The Bear family goes to Disneyland! From the moment we entered the door and our little cub went running from room to room yelling “This is so awesome!” we knew we had picked the right home for our Disneyland vacation. This beautiful home is spacious, well decorated, beautifully furnished, 100% cub-friendly, and just minutes away from Disneyland. Each bedroom is themed to a Disney movie or character with wall decorations, murals, and bedding. There is a fantastic room we named the “Toy Room” because of its Toy Story theme and HUGE box full of stuffed animal characters. The little cubs had such a great time playing. They also really loved the collection of Disney DVDs! As for us adult Bears, we were pleasantly surprised to find everything we needed for our stay. The very well thought-out welcome packet taught us everything we needed to know about the house and the surrounding area. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals for our 5 day visit. The strollers, pack-n-play, and other very practical amenities (wifi, computer, children's books, etc.) were tremendously appreciated and made for much lighter travel. There was so much to do in the area and when we weren’t at Disneyland we were visiting the Discover Science Center, the beach, and visiting family in a nearby city. The provided notes about nearby stores and fun places to go were quite helpful. Owners, thank you so much for making this amazing home available to us on our vacation. Oh, and each night our Bear family loved watching the spectacular firework show!

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Reviewer Comments:

The house looked great online, however there were a number of shortcomings we discovered upon our arrival. The first was that the house was not well child proofed. We found an outlet with a hole in it that was big enough for a curious child to stick their finger in. None of the outlets had covers on them, even in the play room. I notified the owners and they did thankfully send someone over with some plastic outlet covers. But there was also a sharp piece of metal that was sticking out in the drain of the "master bath." I say "master" but this was the only room with a connected bath. The description of the house says there are 2 master bedrooms but really there are just 2 rooms with King size beds. The connected bath was the worst of the 3 bathrooms. In addition to the sharp metal, the shower is no bigger than a phone booth and the shower head was just awful. These are really easy updates I would encourage the owner to invest in. Now I see why only one bath was pictured. The 3rd bath is actually behind the laundry room and the sink is in the laundry room. Please note there is also no bathroom on the upper level. We were also very disappointed that we paid to have the hot tub heated and it never was. I reached out to the owner and they told me to read the instructions in the house binder. We looked through the binder cover to cover and there was no instructions for the hot tub. They really should have sent someone over to fix it for us since we paid for it and didn't want to spend our vacation time trying to trouble shoot and fix it ourselves. The trash was also overflowing when we arrived and the home instructions said not to place any garbage outside the cans so we notified the owners. They sent someone over to empty the bin, however, the smell was still there after the trash was gone and we came to the conclusion that an animal must have died under the deck and was rotting because the smell was so putrid. The location was good but overall I wouldn't recommend

Reviewer Comments:

Rental is exactly what we needed for our group of 11. We enjoyed the pool and when there was an issue with the hot tub, management sent someone over immediately to fix it. Some of the members of our group have a hard time walking so we just took $8 UberXL rides over to the Disney parks. Still it is an easy walk over to catch the tram to Disneyland.

Super close to Disney and great for big families.

  • 4 of 5

The house is a little older, but clean. We had an issue with a couple of smoke alarms the first night, but the property manager dealt with it immediately and someone came out at 10 o'clock at night to address the issue. Everything was as advertised and the management team was great.

Reviewer Comments:

Their were lots of things not good with our stay. First, their were dirty sheeting on the bed and pull out couch, we constantly had issues with accessing the rental due to the key lock. Hot tub was not filled and working properly while in use. Their was no lights for pool for evening swim and we constantly had neighbors watching us and spying on us which was very uncomfortable for our whole family who was staying in the rental, such an invasion of privacy. We had 2 fire alarms that kept sounding off in the middle of the night. We had left several messages with management that went unanswered. This was the worst Air-BNB rental we have ever experienced, and we take 2 yearly family vacations since our children were born. There was 3 families staying together during our stay and we all felt the same about the condition of the home. Family room couch was worn out and uncomfortable to sit on because cushions were sunken in. We had 1 family who left 2 days earlier and stayed at a hotel because of the creepy neigbors who lived across the street constantly starring at our kids sitting in the front porch. The 2 front rooms had no AC which made it very uncomfortable for guess to sleep because it was so hot. I specificly asked about AC before making reservations. AC units in rooms and kitchen were dirty/dusty and didn't work very well and pushed out almost no air in the kitchen. Broken outlet plugs were exposed which made it a fire hazard to plug anything in. Light bulbs were out in 2 of the rooms. Only thing that we liked bout this house was the Pool because it was large and deep. Master room shower head is old rusty and sprayed so hard that it hurt to shower in there. All I can say is that the owners of this property didn't care to check things out before our stay in making sure everything was clean and in working conditions.They don't care to take pride in there rental.I would not rent from these folks again.We want fun,joyful,memorable family vacations not stressful ones!

Map

We are 0.6 miles from Disneyland - a 10-15 minute walk! It's not much further from the Disneyland parking lot. We also provide strollers for the little ones. Of course Disneyland is amazing, but if you are up for more adventure, we're only 1-1.5 hour drive from Legoland, Magic Mountain, Sea World, Hollywood/LA and only a 15 minute drive to Knotts Berry Farm. And our beautiful Southern California beaches including Huntington, Newport, and Laguna Beach are just 15-30 minutes away!
