Vacation Review

I've been on vacation for a couple of weeks. It was wonderful except for the driving part which my 3 year old made quite miserable. We visited California and loved it there. Because our family has gotten so big, we decided to look into renting a house from VRBO this time. I was quite nervous we'd end up with a dump or a house that smelled like smoke or cats.

I can happily say I was thrilled with what we got. In fact, I was so happy with our experience, I wanted to post the link to the vacation house and my review here. If anybody is going to the Anaheim area for vacation, check this place out. Whether you have four people or ten people, it's great!

I will post more about our vacation later. Right now I have to write!!! The area gave me some good ideas and my characters have been extremely loud in my head because I've ignored them for so long.

Disney Digs

My review:

This was our first time renting a vacation house instead of staying at a hotel. As our family has expanded, we were having to get at least 2 rooms or suites at hotels which is way out of our price range. So we looked into VRBO. Our family of 8, including 2 adults and 6 children, stayed at Disney Digs for 9 nights and we couldn't have been happier. The photos are right on.

I'm so glad we tried renting a house for vacation. Ryan and Leah had EVERYTHING we needed. It was clean and quiet. I have a lot of allergies and I was thrilled that nothing here bothered them.

The kitchen was stocked with fun plates, cups, and utensils, and even sippy cups for the kids. There were paper plates, napkins, and water bottles! The decor was perfect. It was cool enough for the teenager to enjoy as well as the little ones. The kids loved measuring themselves on the height chart to see which rides they could go on. The couches were comfortable, the table perfect for us, and the beds were great! I slept like a baby, which I never do at home. I loved having the nursery right there for the baby. He slept wonderfully and I was so glad I didn't have to drag the pack-n-play with us.

Ryan and Leah left treats for the kids which they loved. My 1 year old boy didn't let go of his little Buzz Lightyear toy for hours!! And the teen loved her mustache cup.

Ryan and Leah had gates for the stairs, highchairs, crib, changing table, and strollers. After an issue with one of the strollers came up, they replaced it right away. We were happy to find everything we needed for the beach - towels, toys, chairs, boogie boards. Kids had a blast!

We kept quite busy during our stay hitting Disneyland, Disney California Adventures, Downtown Disney, Knott's Berry Farm, The Queen Mary, Santa Monica Pier/Pacific Park, Hollywood, and a few different beaches.

I don't have one single complaint. It was a perfect house for us and I will refer this house to anybody going to Anaheim. Thank you so much, Ryan and Leah, for a wonderful place to call home during our vacation.
