Bedrooms 8
Space 3,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property at "Vacashine" Homes!

Welcome to paradise!! Our vacation home has 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and features the most amazing backyard with a lazy river pool and slide, outdoor dining room, outdoor living room and space to play! We have a huge playhouse for the kids and a BBQ for dinners outside in the California sunshine!

Lazy rivers are one of my (and my kids) favorite things and we usually seek out resorts that have one. No need now as there is a lazy river right in the backyard! The pool is in the center and the shallow end has a big baja shelf. There's a bridge over the river to an island that gets you into the pool and completely encircling the pool is a 5' wide and 3' deep lazy river! A rock slide goes over the river to the deep end of the pool and there is a sitting grotto and double waterfalls under the slide onto the lazy river. The lazy river flow is so fun and we provide plenty of floats :) The pool area has grass to play on, an outdoor living room and an above ground spa. The entire pool area is fully secured with a fence and self-locking MagnaLatch gates. One gate takes you to the side yard and the other takes you back into the living room. The side yard is a great place for the little ones to play outside as it's separated from the pool area and has an awesome playhouse, a grassy area and an outdoor dining table with a BBQ. It's right off the dining room / kitchen area.

A quick summary of the highlights of this house:

- your own private resort...most amazing tropical backyard pool with lazy river, slide, waterfall, baja shelf and spa

- 5 luxurious adult bedrooms with designer beds/linens (4 kings, 1 queen)

- 2 themed kid bedrooms (each with 5 twin mattresses): princess dream castle for the girls, Cars room for the boys

- backyard also has a playhouse, BBQ, outdoor living and dining rooms

- 8th bedroom doubles as a den with a packed entertainment center (Wii, board games, books and toys) and a daybed with a popup trundle bed (can either be 2 twins or they join to make an eastern king mattress)

- game room with Brunswick pool table, Tornado foosball table, huge leather couch and TV

- 4 full bathrooms

- spacious kitchen with a 5 burner range, lots of small appliances

- huge dining room table that seats 14

- located on a private street in a great Anaheim neighborhood 7 minutes from Disneyland

We have entertainment options for everyone in the house regardless of age! Lots of TVs, tons of DVDs, a Wii game system, pool table, foosball table, many board games and a little library (leave a book / take a new one for the flight home!). For the kids we have amazing themed bedrooms (Cars themed room for the boys, princess castle dreamland for the girls) and tons of toys. For the youngest ones in the group we have 3 pack n plays, high chairs, bouncy seat, strollers (singles and a double), baby toys and books and a baby monitor.

Feel free to call or email me with questions!

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house was big enough for all 27 of us. Anything we needed was available. Baby stroller, high chair, etc. linens. My adult grandchildren and young grandchildren especially enjoyed the pool however, were disappointed the lazy river wasn’t working. Minor detail, rooms were smaller than they looked in pictures. Could have used a larger refrig. to hold food for number of people we had. Overall would definitely recommend it.

8 adults...8 week was fantastic in Dea’s home. There was so much to do...billiards, games, TVs, toys, playhouse...and so much room for us to spread out. The highlight was the backyard pool 😀. We all loved it...especially with the slide and lazy river. And the kids thought the Lightning McQueen room and the Princess room were the best. Thanks so much Dea for letting us enjoy your home. It was amazing!

This house made our Disney Trip stress free and added to the amazing experience.

  • 5 of 5

We are a blended family of 16 and we absolutely loved this house. It had everything a person needed and more. Dea was so easy to get ahold of for small questions, she checked in to ensure we had everything we needed. It’s a short commute to the Disneyland gates.

At the end of the long Disney days there was nothing better than coming home for the kids to swim in the pool and us old bones soak in the hot tub. I can’t say enough positive things. This house will be recommended to anyone who plans on doing the house rental route. Thank you again Dea for sharing your amazing property with me and my family. Xoxo till next time thank you.

Perfect for a big family

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our big extended family stay. Everyone had plenty of room. The lazy river was a big hit with the kids (even though it was cold). The Disney themed bedrooms were very cute. Very close to Disneyland. Nice to have two washers and dryers. Kitchen was big enough for all of us to move around in. Thanks!
