John and Ana purchased this house in 2013

Why John and Ana chose Anaheim Colony Historic District

Our home is one of the best vacation rental. We know what people want and need when they are on vacation and we have tried to provide those things! The home is in a great, safe neighborhood but it is close to all shops and restaurants. Everything inside and out is designed with the kids in mind! You will love it! It's peaceful in the morning with beautiful old pine trees and very private. When you get home after a long day at the park, it's a wonderful place to relax. You can lounge and watch the kids play and swim someone can get the BBQ going on the gas grill cooking a great dinner and just enjoy! It really is a special place. It's one of those places you'll think about when you are told to go to your happy place.

Our home is situated on a very private lot with lots of mature pine trees. The home is in a very safe, quiet neighborhood. Many of the features in the home a custom-made: closets, crown molding, and decorative artwork. The pool is gated, surrounded by beautiful old pines.

What makes this house unique

Want something different on an extended stay?? Hop on a nearby freeway and go to the beach or mountains or both! Enjoy everything that SoCal has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been happier - every little detail was perfect from the table being set to welcome us, to the pool having toys waiting for us, to the super comfy beds and living area. It was a 5 minute drive to Disney and having the pool to cool off and play in after was perfect!

Fun Kids vacation

  • 4 of 5

Magic Forest was ideal for our family vacation. The Disney themes at the house plus the heated pool were perfect for the kids. Being close to Disney was a big help too. John & Ana are perfect hosts and ready to help or answer questions anytime.

Highly recommend the Magic Forest House and hope to return in the future!

It Worked Out Well

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was EXTREMELY clean and well taken care of. After walking all day at the park, I wouldn't say the house was within walking distance. But parking is only $20 and you can go in and out. The house was within an 8 min drive. Super easy!

Awesome house near Disney

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a fall break in Oct. I usually have about a 50/50 success rate with houses I rent, and this one is a keeper! It was perfect for my family of four and my brother and nephew. Plenty of room and I think the 10 year old boys were more excited about the swimming pool then Disney, if we weren't at the park, they were in the pool. Very clean, and well appointed. All we had to do is hit the grocery store for food and we were set. Thank you, we aren't planning on coming back to Disney until 2020, after the Star Wars park is finished, if you are still renting on VRBO, we will definitely be staying here again.
