About Bruce Leamer
I was born in Orange County and grew up in Anaheim. I could see the Big A at the Angel Stadium from my home and spent many days going to play at Disneyland. The neighbors and I would spend hours trading our leftover Disney tickets for an E ticket. As I grew up I started surfing Huntington Beach thus the California Surf Disney décor. My wife Jama and I raised our boys with annual Disney passes and spent many days going to Disney after school. My sons are grown now but Jama and I still have annual passes to Disneyland and still love to play at Disneyland.
Bruce Leamer purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Bruce Leamer chose Anaheim Resort
We chose this property because it is in such a great location. You can walk to Disneyland or the Convention Center and there is so much to do in the area. Great restaurants, shopping (The Block shopping center), sports (Angels and Ducks) close to freeways and public transportation. It doesn't get any better.
What makes this Townhome unique
The décor is pretty cool and the furniture is all new. This house is designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind. We have worked very had at giving you a great Southern California experience !
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
This property is perfect! We usually stay in hotels and after staying here, we will not go back to staying in a hotel. The beds were comfortable, it was spacious, clean, charming and the kitchen had everything you could possible need. Not to mention that the decor was adorable!! We chose to Uber to Disneyland and it was inexpensive and quick, especially great after a long day of walking in Disney. I would highly recommend this to families traveling to Anaheim!!!
Family Vacation—good for all ages
Overall stay was good. The property was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. There was a lot of traffic noise throughout the night but we expected that when we rented the property. The owner was very easy to get a hold of and we appreciated his help. It was a bit of a walk to Disneyland but doable.
Overall a nice little place
Overall a great little place for no more than 8 people. About a 20 minute walk to Disney.
A few things could have made the experience a 5 star:
* there were no washcloths (we had to buy some the first day)
* The thermostat was not controllable. Sometimes it was set at 78 (we were hot) sometimes it was at 70 (we were Freezing)
I would recommend this place for a great getaway.
Good value for families
I added some extra time to a work trip in Orange to spend a day at Disney. Overall, the condo is a little older, but it was cleaned well and in good condition. The proximity to Disney is great too. We took a cab home for an afternoon rest, and it was less than $10. To walk there would be a bit far, but there were small strollers in the garage for use too as you could walk to some nearby restaurants (~1mile). The pool is a little walk through the condos, but not far. It's large and has a hot tub too.
As far as the house, the owner has done a nice job of having lots of beds available without making the rooms feel cramped, making it easy for two families to share rather than the expense multiple hotel rooms. The master bedroom was particularly large and roomy even with two queen beds. I agree with past reviews: 1) the master bedroom faces the main road, and it is LOUD at night. It kept me up, but my daughter slept through it every night just fine, 2) the beds are squeaky and not just the bunk beds; I thought all the beds were. That said, the beds were also very comfortable, and the pillows were in good condition too. Bed linens seemed fairly new too. The towels were inconsistent with some nice, thick ones and some smaller and thinner, but again, all in good condition. One thing that was unusual compared to other VRBOs I've stayed at was there were no shower amenities (soap, shampoo, conditioner). There was sink soap, and other house cleaning items, but not these toiletries. Not a big deal, but something to note. A nice unusual thing compared to others is that aside from the regular appliances, the kitchen also had a slow cooker and an air pop popcorn machine. We didn't use the slow cooker, but for a longer trip, it would be a nice way to save some money and eat in after a long day at one of the parks. We did use the air popper (after I googled how to use it) for a nice treat. There is also a washer / dryer in the garage.
Overall, it was a nice and easy stay!
We had a great time. The house was clean. Loved that there was a box of toys for the kids to play with. Was super easy to get ahold of the owners when we had questions upon arrival. The food garbage disposal didn't work as well as the plug for the bathtub. We ended up having to shove a hand towel in the drain so the kids could bathe.
From the four adults staying there we thought of a few things that would have been nice to have. Throw blankets for the couches. We ended up grabbing blankets for our beds and having to remake everytime. Having the box fan to drown out the street noise was nice but there was only 1 fan for 3 rooms. 2 more things for white noise would have been amazing. There was only 1 bath wash cloth for 7 people as well as only 1 towel per person. Would have been nice for the women to dry their hair out. A baby gate to either keep the baby from going upstairs or into the kitchen. Last but not least there is a love seat and a 3 person couch in the living room. I feel that if the house sleeps 9 people there should be room to sit 9. The bean bag seat that is in one of the pictures is not there. These are just suggestions. We enjoyed staying there and would do it again. Thanks for having us.
Spacious and Comfortable
Our family of 5 enjoyed staying in Goofy's Surfari. The mattresses on every bed were very comfortable as was the living room furniture. The location is great though a bit of a walk to Disneyland. The pool and hot tub were definitely a plus. The kitchen was stocked well and the house was spacious and comfortable. It was nice to have a washer and dryer for our wet towels and bathing suits. The master bedroom is beyond spacious and the decorating throughout delightful. A bonus, strollers in the garage and toys in the bunk room.
