House was perfect for a large group, four young kids and six adults, the kids and their parents in the bunk room. Plenty to do at the house, lots of toys and a small, clean, fenced, heated built in pool to keep everyone busy in between those long eight hour days at Disneyland. The house is Disney themed to get everyone in the mood and the trip by car to the parking garage is less than 5 minutes. SNA Airport is about a twenty minute drive and the house is close by the freeway. There is a guest book with all sorts of local information on the counter along with brochures and a GREAT coffee pot, thank heavens. The house was clean and everything ready at check-in, like a model home, plates and flatware on the tables, alarm clocks in every room, pool towels, everything you need. No hovering owners, the one time I talked to them after our arrival was nothing but pleasant and helpful. We had a nine year old autistic child with us and he was as happy in the house as at home and he really liked the décor and comfortable surroundings. We had a ball.
I would highly recommend staying at The Magic Forest. It is close to Disneyland, easily accessed by bus or Uber. The home is very clean and well kept. John, the owner, is very accommodating and answers emails promptly. I will stay here again!
The Magic Forest house had some water problems that were being fixed so John gave us the Neverending story house. It was great, and the pool and hot tub were wonderful. He was great to work with and made our Disneyland vacation perfect.
When we walked into the house it was a pleasant surprise. Clean, roomy, with everything we needed. The pool area is fenced in and safe for children. The washer and dryer helped keep our little ones clean after a busy day at Disneyland. We drove to Disneyland. You could easily walk, however, after a day at the park, it would be a long way back. The backyard is set-up for lounging and enjoying a barbeque with swimming. We especially liked that there were children's chairs on the patio. Great vacation home all around.
The owner John had everything set up for our arrival...easy access to enter the premises. The pool was heated and ready to go upon arrival as well. I enjoyed the two car garage and the very open floor plan with plenty of space for everyone to hang together enjoying our vacation.
Excellent family friendly place. Garage parking, well protected pool, large common area, nice kitchen setup, very sturdy bunk beds, ample bath towels - this place has it all!
This house was so awesome to have! It was close to Disneyland and medieval times. We ended up hearing the pool, which was a hit. Overall the best experience we had renting a home for the first time. It was like “home away from home”.
