Loved our week stay at the Tropical Oasis. If we weren't at Disneyland we were in the pool. The pool table and game tables were awesome but we always ended up back in the pool or hot tub lol. The pictures that you see are exactly the way the home looks. It is in a nice area and Darla is wonderful to rent from. It is in a very convenient location and I think it was only a 10 minute very easy drive to Disney. One of our favorite little take out places we found was Varsity Burger on Lincoln. And Ruby's Diner was very good. Of course to splurge Blue Bayou at Disneyland is a must.

Perfect location and fabulous house!

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Oasis. The neighborhood is nice, quiet and in a central location. Our group included 2 adults and 2 college age students (1 Canadian enjoying his first trip to California). We loved the pool and hot tub in the evenings. The kitchen has everything you might need. Beds were comfy as well. Fast commute to Disney and easy access to major highways. Check out Fullerton for great nightlife and restaurants (Matador Cantina was excellent) and boutique shopping. Also check out Watson's Soda Shop in Orange, a step back in time with excellent food and ice-cream. My parents along with my niece and nephew stopped by for a BBQ and dip in the pool after a morning at Disney. We had a hard time convincing them to leave the pool and to return to the long lines at Disney!!

We had one minor issue with the hot tub and Darla was quick to respond to my text message and had someone out to adjust the temperature on a Sunday (talk about excellent customer service!). The only thing keeping me from giving the home 5 stars is the bright sunlight in the master bedroom. The view of the pool and easy access to it and the hot tub from the master bedroom is fantastic, however the sun at 6AM not so great. I recommend black out curtains.

We will definitely be back and recommend this home to anyone traveling to Southern California.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The property is on a quiet spot - even though on the corner of the cul-de-sac. We had no issues with noise at any time. In the evening you can see the Disney fireworks as you sit by the pool. The pool is wonderful -warm, just the right size, has an area that is raised for the younger ones, plus a great hot tub. The family room was comfortable and inviting - we spent much time there talking, munching & watching a couple movies. It is also close to many places for shopping and eating. There was a bit of starter supplies to get us going as well as left spices, coffee, etc. and when we left we added to the collection - was very nice to have as many times we have rented and have to bring or purchase everything. The bunks are not suited well for adults - a bit on the smaller side but doable for a few nights. We had a fantastic time attending our son's graduation from Chapman University and if he remains in the area would be renting here again. Thanks for the memories! Highly recommend this property & manager to anyone looking for something in the area.

Nice but could easily be better

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time. 4 adults and 2 kids. Pool is great and the overall memory is good.

The bed in the main bedroom is so comfortable. Enjoyed playing pool in the evenings.

The whole place could do with a bit of a clean and a coat of paint.

We did have one major problem. The pump for the pool is right outside the window of the main bedroom and it starts at 6.30 and so wakes you up every morning. We emailed and texted and phoned but no response until the last day. The pool man said he would change it but didn't. If it hasn't changed yet then prepare to be up early.

Apart from that we all had a good time

Wonderful home - great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property. This was our 4th time renting in the Anaheim area and this was by far our favorite property. Darla was great to work with - she answered any questions we had right away. The house is as pictured and the pool was wonderful! The location is great. It is in a beautiful neighborhood and has easy access to everything. We would definitely stay here again.

Tropical Oasis Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home was fantastic! Everything was ready for us when we got to the house. It was in a perfect location, we could see the fireworks at Disneyland every night from the backyard! This home has everything you will need for a perfect vacation! The game room was wonderful and the layout of the house was

perfect for kids and adults!

The pool was wonderful! it was heated to the perfect temperature and we swam the first few days before going to Disneyland! The owners provide you with everything you need! Towels, pool toys, and a kitchen ready to cook in! We had a blast!!

I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay while in Anaheim! I rent a house in Anaheim every year for my annual trip to

Disneyland, and this home is the best so far! I will be back!!!
