Maverick for us was amazing.
Let me start by mentioning Ali (our host) although we never met Ali, he has been the best communicator I have ever had when staying somewhere on our holidays, always responds to any enquiries within no time at all.
The villa - what can I say, very clean, spacious and everything you need inside.
The pool was the biggest bonus for us as normally when we have rented in the past the pools have been quite shallow and not as big as this, it has a large enough shallow end for little ones and an excellent depth at the other end that gives older children the feel of being able to dive in to retrieve rings ect...
Garden area, beautiful with a lovely lemon tree with plenty of lemon hanging from it, the garden has lots of visits from the magicistal humming birds that are lovely to watch.
The garden area also has a gas BBQ which was a huge bonus.
Beds are super comfy and very big, they have us a great nights sleep. Towels and sheets spotless. As was everything else in the villa, the fridge has an ice machine and cold water witch is also a great bonus.
Location - you are very close to Disneyland and you can actually hear the fireworks go off in the evening.
12 minute drive to the outlets and you have a Walmart just a 5 minute drive away too for all you grocery needs.
Driving to LA and seeing the Hollywood sign we took us around two hours but we got stuck in traffic on both days so my advise would be either try a different route to the one the sat nav first shows you or leave early, this didn’t worry us as it was just a trip took twice while there, once to see Hollywood bouvivard and one to visit Universal studios and of course we checked out the beaches that end.
Just a short 40 minute drive from the villa you also have Huntington’s beach with all the surf activities- this was our favourite beach while there and in the week really wasn’t even that busy.
I must also add that I felt very safe in this neighbourhood and it was extremely peaceful during the day and night.
I have nothing but great memories from
Staying here and would absolutely stay again.
Family of four (two adults and two children) one being an 18 year old.
This home is lovely. Great pool, comfortable furnishings, comfortable beds, great layout for families. We didn't cook, so I can't speak to kitchen supplies. The location is great for Disneyland, and the drive wasn't bad for Hollywood, legoland, SD zoo, & beaches. Only negative for us: would have loved to take a quiet night swim in the pool, but I didn't want to violate the contract.
I must start by thanking Ali and the Twelve Springs crew for being so fantastic to deal with. We were in SoCal for 10 days in mid-May. We rented a car so we could tour the LA piers and boulevards and also planned a 3 day visit to Disneyland and Legoland too. We stayed at Maverick 1 for the last 7 of those when my kids and grandkids (2) joined us for the park days. For us, it was Perfect! The pool and patio in the back yard, the nice kitchen and dining room space, the games room, and more. All 7 of us had the most exceptional sleeps during our stay. Sunshine, busy days, constant laughs, and great beds equal exceptional sleeps I guess.
The drive to the Toy Story parking lot was 15 minutes or less. The drive to Legoland was 60. Honda Center, Angels Stadium, and Outlets at Orange were less than 10 minutes away.
The house worked so well for us on every level. Our expectations were exceeded because of the "feel" and the experience. If you are looking for clean, warm, comfortable, and friendly, this is your rental house! If you are looking for china and crystal in the kitchen cupboards, this is not your house...
Thanks again Ali.
