About Michael Fischer

My father, Mike Sr., purchased this home in 1978 and rebuilt it in 1992 into the beautiful home it is today. My sister and I were raised in this wonderful home. Now that we have kids, we love to take our children here to swim in the gorgeous pool and enjoy the nearby hiking and playing at the Laguna Lake Park.

Michael Fischer purchased this estate in 1978

Why Michael Fischer chose Fullerton

My father fell in love with this home due to the open areas around it with all the horse trails and wildlife as well as the near by lake. We also love how its just minutes from Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm.

Did not meet expectations!

  • 2 out of 5
My family was in the area to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday with a trip to Disneyland. On paper, this appeared to be the perfect setting for us with 7 adults and two young kids (6 and 3). The house is simply rundown and not as nice as it appears in the photos. The only thing that had been upgraded since the 80s is the kitchen. The pool is good with a few issues: rock slide does not actually slide and when you do try to slowly go down it, your bathing suit gets ruined. Pool controls are not easily interpreted and you have to call the pool guy daily to figure out how to deal with issues like overheating, lights not working, etc. While there we had to call the owner multiple times - once for water leaking from the ceiling lights which was due to the air conditioner overheating. This happened in the room my two daughters were sleeping in and the owner assured me it wasn't dangerous and just to turn the ac off. Which we did begrudgingly since it was in the high 90s. The worst thing that happened though was in the middle of the night, my three year old daughter being woken up by ants crawling all over her. My girls were afraid to sleep in the bunk bed after that because it was covered in ants and they had to make a makeshift bed on the ground. The owner replied that it was just sprayed but did nothing else to compensate for this problem. Other minor issues is that is was 20 minutes from Disneyland not 5 as it states on VRBO, again an issue when you have little one who have spent 9 hours at Disneyland; laundry machine downstairs didn't work; tiles falling off in bathrooms. When people go on vacation, they don't want to call the owner multiple times with house issues. It should be hassle free. It could be a nice place if they put a little money into upgrading it but as is I would not recommend.

great place- great fun had by all

  • 5 out of 5
Our entire family - seniors, adult children and grandkids - stayed here this past August. Everyone had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful, the pool a ton of fun, and the location is very peaceful and park-like. When not on the go, our grandkids lived in the pool. They loved the water slide! After a day at Disneyland (a short 15 min side street drive way), my wife and i liked (and needed) the heated spa! We cooked most of our meals and found the kitchen to be well supplied and clean. in the evenings, we old folks enjoyed watching a movie after strolling around the near by park. From a late night light bulb replacement to driving tips, the owner went out of his way to make sure every thing was perfect. I would highly recommend this house to anyone coming to Southern California.

Great time had by all

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed at this great house with my sister, her family, and my parents. We all had a super time - kids loved the pool and slide, adults loved the spa, and older folks had fun relaxing by the pool. The house is centrally located to some of the best family theme parks in the world. We've already booked a trip for next summer with Michael. If you're looking for somewhere special to stay, you can't go wrong here!

Thanks for a wonderful family reunion!

  • 5 out of 5
This beautiful home (the photos do not do it justice) played a huge part in helping to make a memorable family reunion! With three generations under one roof, I was a tad concerned we'd be crowded. That was not the case at all! The house is huge, spotlessly clean, and everyone had plenty of space! We cooked most of our meals and we were able to make great meals in the very well appointed kitchen. During the day, the younger people explored the theme parks and local attractions knowing our parents were enjoying the lush poolside area. Our kids loved the pool's slide and waterfall. They also spent many hours in the game room and watching the big screen TV. My husband, my brother and his wife, and myself had a great time enjoying a glass (or two) of wine while relaxing in the heated spa. When we checked in, Michael explained how everything worked and gave us his phone number to use 24/7 in case of any problems. We called Michael very late one night asking if there were any light bulbs as the light had burnt out in the bathroom my folks were using. When we told Michael there were only smaller bulbs in the store room, Michael rushed a replacement right over. It was well after midnight. My entire family has promised to make this an annual vacation and we have already reserved this wonderful home again next year!

Beautiful Home but Extremely Disappointed

  • 3 out of 5
Let me first start by saying that this home is beautiful (inside and out) and the grounds on which it is on are the same. Convenient location, close to Knott's and Disney as well as the nature preserve. However, to say that the home owner was less than responsive to issues, would be an understatement. We were told that check-in was 5:00 and possibly another hour which was fine. However, the cleaning crew didn't leave until 8:00 that night. The pool had some debris in it to which I was told to call the pool cleaner to address which to his credit, he did and promptly so. Not sure why I would have to do this though. We did not have TV for the entire week. We were told that the home was converting from dish to cable the prior week but the installation never occurred. After calls on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday during the week to have fixed with no response, we gave up. Not the best of situations for a 10 year old, two 8 year olds and a 5 year old. There is a serious, serious problem with ants in the house, specifically in the kitchen and bathrooms. As with the TV issue, calls on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday during the week led to no resolution. The coffee pot did not work but that was a minor issue compared to the above. We made it around these problems as we were gone most days from morning to evening but anybody looking to stay at the house primarily will want these issues addressed ahead of time.

Family visit from the UK

  • 4 out of 5
This home was very much like it looks in the photos. The rooms are large & airy with plenty of space for a large family group like ours. The outside space was great for the younger members of our party aged from 9- 19 but our two 70+ years old both took a fall outside as the area is uneven and it is hard to see the difference levels. There are beds for 10 people, two double rooms downstairs, a double with a set of bunk beds downstairs & a very large double master suite upstairs. Im not sure where you would put everyone if you had 20 people but our teenagers slept in the games room upstairs as the sofa bed downstairs is in a room that would be rather noisy. This was fine for us. There was only 3 sun loungers and not enough outside or dining chairs for us all to sit down together but again this was not a problem for our party really. There was no manual for the house which was a problem as we never did get the oven to work ( neither could our visiting local family)& fortunately the maid who was still there when we arrived asked the pool man to visit to show us how to use the controls or we would not have been able to use the slide or waterfall. The house has various high tech features including a waste compactor, touch lights & a sound system but again we never really worked out how to use them. A manual for the appliances & the nearest stores etc would be helpful. We never saw the owner to pay a deposit.
This is a great house for a large party & easy to get to Imperial Hwy & therefore just about everywhere else!

We offer a large enclosed dog run that stretches the length of the entire home. Smoking is outside only please.
