About this listing
Our cozy home is the perfect place to relax after a day at Disney or your conference! Your bedroom is nicely sized for up to three adults. Enjoy access to the entire house, with wifi, TV, and an enclosed hallway wing to yourselves.
Watch the Disneyland fireworks from your backyard!
We hope you'll join us in our spacious 1956 home (built right after Disneyland opened its doors). You'll have a self-contained hallway to yourself, with a private bedroom, full bath, and a door that closes off the rest of the house if you like. This room is perfect for up to three adults: two on the queen bed and one on the dense foam mattress. The bedroom has a queen sized bed, a TV with DVD player, antenna and Roku system with access to Netflix, Hulu, etc, and a ceiling fan (our house is also air conditioned).
Pricing does not include 15% city tax, which will be charged a month before you arrive. Anaheim requires a 3-night minimum; please contact us for details and shorter stay requests.
We welcome you to use the kitchen and living areas, including the large backyard grill and fire pit, wifi, and a washer and dryer. We may be able to do some light grocery shopping for you before your arrival - please let us know in advance. We provide light snacks, tea and coffee. There is ample street parking on our block.
Interaction with Guests
We are frequent AirBnB'ers ourselves, and aim to be warm hosts, willing to converse and share mealtimes if you'd like, and happy to provide you with as much privacy as you prefer.
For those planning a trip to Disneyland, Tyler (a Disney cast member) can offer tips, tricks, and insider knowledge about the park.
Our neighborhood is clean, safe, and quiet (except for the Disney fireworks most nights). This is a residential neighborhood comprised mostly of identical, cottage-style 1950's tract houses. There is a green park with a nice playground at the end of our block. Every street has a sidewalk, and the roads are flat and well-maintained. We are car-close to downtown Fullerton and Old Towne Orange, both of which have great bars and restaurants.
We are one mile from Disneyland (a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute bike ride), and 2.5 miles from the front entrance of the Anaheim Convention Center (50 min walk/15 min bike). Other nearby attractions include Knott's Berry Farm, Angel Stadium, and the Honda Center. The bubble showing our approximate location isn't exactly accurate; we are northwest of Disneyland, near the corner of Crone and Walnut.
Getting Around While You’re Here
We’re in Southern California, home of the free-range automobile! We have a reputation for being car-centric, and it’s true: public transportation is minimal and can be frustrating to use.
With advance notice, we are able to provide you up to 2 bicycles - this will get you around the city much faster than our inconsistent public transportation.
Within the city of Anaheim, you can get anywhere using our bicycles, your feet, or a taxi cab. If you want to go anywhere outside of Anaheim (the beach, Los Angeles, San Diego), you should rent a car. We use Priceline to book rental cars when we travel. There is ample street parking on our block.

Disneyland: $2, 20 minutes, 0.8 miles of walking
