About Melinda C
We are a young family with 2 kids who love to travel. We have used VRBO in many places including Hawaii, Paris, Stockholm, Hong Kong, many cities in Canada, US and the UK. VRBO homes provide the space that we need for our kids. They can play, we can cook a full meal and relax in the living room and outdoor spaces. It is hard to compare a VRBO home with a hotel -- we find that vacation homes are a much better fit for our family's needs.
Melinda C purchased this House in 2012
Why Melinda C chose Southwest Anaheim
This location is a short 15 minute walk to Disneyland. Our guests can walk to many restaurants in downtown Disney and enjoy the resort area. At the same time, this spacious house provides plenty of room to relax and unwind.
What makes this House unique
This a charming house with lots of details that adults and kids will appreciate. The stone fireplace, bright windows, solar tubes, skylights, stone and marble accents in the entryway and long upstairs hallway and den space that our kids love. We have also added a brand new 7 person hot tub with 115 jets, and 100 LED lights. The front yard is gated and can be locked for child safety and Mom's peace of mind.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The property was nice and cozy. I was sad the jacuzzi had broken and been removed after booking, but the owner did alert us and gave a discount.
We had an amazing time staying at this house! Close to the supermarket, freeway and Disneyland!
Great place to stay!
The house was perfect for our family. The kids loved the hot tub and game room. With three bathrooms no problem getting showers in the morning. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Melinda
Great house and great owner
The was very nice and spacious for me, my wife, 5 kids, and 3 grandparents. Hot tub in the backyard was great to relax in after a long day at Disneyland. Next time we go, we'll see if this house is available first. Would recommend.
Perfect for our family!
Great location. Great house. Plenty of space for our family, and perfect for our Disney trip. It was only a $10 Uber ride there for our family of 6! I highly recommend Ubering to Dowtown Disney for easy entrance and exit! Dont bother with the parking garage. Would definitely stay again.
Great place for a family to stay
We enjoyed our stay here in this spacious house. There was more than enough room for our married children and our infant grandson. It was really nice to have a living room area that accommodated the whole family and to be able to be together. We were even able to celebrate a late family Thanksgiving dinner around the large dining room table. Three bathrooms made our morning routine a lot less hectic. The hot tub is a real bonus to have after a long day at Disneyland. We watched the Disneyland fireworks from the hot tub. The bushes are trimmed just perfectly to be able to see through them and see the fireworks.
We chose to drive to Disneyland because we had an infant with us. You do not save any time by driving. By the time you drive, pay, go through the parkade, grab the tram and get to the entrance of Disneyland, it's the same amount of time to walk. If you want to save your tired feet from a walk back to the house, then parking at Disney ($20/day) or taking an Uber ($6/one way) is the way to go. We walked it a couple of times and it took us 27 minutes to get to Disneyland's front entrance.(yes.....I timed it :) ) If you are only going to the entrance of Downtown Disney, you can walk there in 20 minutes.
We had a few mishaps that had nothing to do with the house or Melinda. There was a storm that knocked out the power. Melinda was right on top of things.
We had a few supplies missing (such as not enough wash cloths for everyone) and Melinda immediately sent her maid over with more for us.
We ran out of a few things that were staples. There was one roll of paper towels for 7 people for one week. We ran out of liquid dish soap. I would say that before you go grocery shopping, it would be a good idea to take an inventory of what you'll need for the week. You may need to buy some common supplies.
I'm giving the home a 4-star rating rather than 5-star. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back here again. But, there were a few things with the kitchen that could use some attention. The coffee maker didn't work correctly, the knives were dull, and the kitchen drawers were in disarray. (Example: measuring spoons and cups were spread out over three drawers) The drawers had crumbs in them and it didn't appear they had been wiped out. None of these things are deal breakers for us. And knowing the attention that Melinda gives this property, I have no question at all that she will take care of these things.
