Great Rental for the Price But Bring Your Loofah

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th trip to Orlando in 3 yrs and the first that we did not stay in a Disney on-site resort. We have previously stayed at the Beach Club Villas, Saratoga Springs Villas and the Caribbean. There were 5 of us. 4 adults and 1 12-yr old child. None of us is handicapped. (If you are handicapped or have trouble going up and down stairs, this is probably not the place for you.)

Pictures are not misleading. What you see is what you get. My e-mails to the owner were quickly answered in a straightfoward, truthful and pleasant manner. I was provided with the owner's emergency contact information prior to leaving on vacation. HomeAway provided me with their advertised guarantee.

This vacation rental is located in a well maintained, neat development with 24 hour security on-site. The on-site staff was pleasant and well-mannered. There are tennis courts, basketball hoops, playgrounds, pools with spas, staffed Tiki Bar, walking trails set around conservation areas, grills and picnic tables.

This 3 bed/2.5 bath townhome is a good rental value. It was a drive through often heavy traffic to get to Universal and SeaWorld; but still a good bargain over other hotel and vacation rental rates.For Disney vacationers, this place is very well located.

Parking is at your front door. There is a lighted front porch.

You walk into a foyer with the 1/2 bath to your right, well-equipped kitchen area to your left, with full sized appliances including dishwasher and disposal. Behind the bathroom to your right is the laundry/utility room with full size washer and dryer. The remainder of the ground floor is comprised of a living/dining combination. Seating is adequate for 6 at the table and there are two barstools at the breakfast counter. There is a sofa bed in the living area along with a love seat. There is a slider to a small covered patio with 2 chairs.

Upstairs there are 3 medium sized bedrooms. The master has an ensuite bathroom with sink, toilet and step in shower only. There is a balcony off the master which is accessed via a slider with additional night lock. There is a hall bath with tub/shower combo. Master has queen size bed with foam topper, the other bedrooms are 1 full bed and 2 twin beds, respectively. There is a stroller and portable crib provided. All bedrooms have t.v.'s, one has a PS2 with some games from 2005. There is a t.v. and dvd/vcr combo player in the living area. High speed internet connnection is by ethernet and it located on top of the entertainment center in the living room. Cord is long enough to use the modem at the dining table or in living area. Internet speed was little slow compared to what I had at home; but was acceptable.

This unit was clean, there were plenty of bath towels (including beach towels) and bed linens, extra pillows and blankets. There were no kitchen linens, oven mitts, hot pads, etc.and there were no wash cloths or face towels.

Management was excellent. We found an appliance problem when we arrived on Friday evening. Repairman arrived by 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

Remember this is a self-catering apartment. Expenses over staying in a on-site hotel are ground transportation, washcloths, kitchen towels, laundry detergent (you're required to start a load of towels before leaving), soap for the kitchen and bathrooms, toilet paper, etc. You can buy all of these things at local supermarkets which are very close, well stocked and easy to get in and out. Prices at the Marketplace and Publix were reasonable. Lots of good restaurants in the area also. Great miniature golf courses. And, like most of Orlando, lots and lots of great shopping areas nearby. The bus is quite a trek, so a car is important. If you are flying in and not going to rent a car, this might not be the place for you.

Pool and hot tub are located just over a block away. Tennis center (2 courts, one with basketball hoops) is just outside the gate (about a 3 block walk) along with the dumpster (you're

Owner's Response: Our goal is to treat everyone as if they were members of our own family, respond immediately, and make sure every guest is 100% satisfied. I appreciate a review that can point out things we can work on and I will make sure we add the dish towels, and wash clothes. I will also look into better shower heads up stairs, for both bathrooms.' Thank you and have a great day!

Great condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was neat and clean. Well stocked kitchen with everything we needed during our stay. Plenty of room to move about and let everyone have their own space. Grounds were pretty and well kept. The condo is conveniently located, within 10 minutes to Disney parks and very close to all of the shopping centers and restaurants in Kissimmee. This will be our go to condo for our trips to Disney in the future.

Great home in ideal location for Disney

  • 5 of 5

The six of us, spanning three generations, found everything we needed in this rental home. The home and resort are clean and well maintained, the setting is quiet but central to Disney and close to shops. The owners have been very thoughtful in what they provide as standard, for example a stroller, pack-n-play, bed guard and stair gate which was a must for our two year old, they were also really good responding to our questions before and after the booking. The kitchen area is well equipped, plenty of crockery, utensils and silverware; there was also heaps of linen and towels. We would have no hesitation in returning to this home and will definitely recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive feedback. We work very hard at making this the cleanest and best rental unit available in Emerald Island.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to holiday in Florida and we couldn't have picked a better condo to stay in. It was a beautifully maintained house with all modern appliances. The house was very clean with lovely modern decor. The patio area at the back of the house backed onto a grass area which was a very safe place for the children to play and there was a lovely gated pool area located 2 minutes walk from the house. Emerald Ireland Resort is a gated area which is great for security, the grounds are perfectly manicured.The house is located in a perfect location when visiting the attractions 15mins drive to Disney. We will definitely be back again to stay and will recommend this house to our friends. We would also like to thank John the owner for all his help, he was very nice to deal with and very prompt in replying to our emails. Brian

Nice home for Orlando trips

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the house for a couple of days with a family (2 adults and 2 kids) to visit the pleasure grounds in Orlando. The home is very good equipped and we enyoued the stay.

After a long and tiríng day at Universal or Disney it was relaxing to come to "home" in this nice atmosphere. If you need a relaxing day in between there is a little pool only a few steps away.

Restaurants and supermarkets are nearby but you need a car to go there and also to the pleasure grounds.

If we will come back to Orlando we will book again this house. We will also recommend it to other from Germany. The communication with the owner was very quick and we got every information that we need.

Thanks for the pleasant stay.

Good rental for price

  • 4 of 5

This was a good rental for the price. Home is as described. Home is in gated community. Community is quiet and well maintained. Parking outside of door. Owner was quick to respond to e mail. Owner provided information on directions to home, gate access, home access, and emergency contacts once full payment was received. Home was close to restaurants and shopping. Home had all of the basic necessities. Home has a small patio off of living room however two chairs on patio could not be used due to torn, dirty cushions. Lamps in master bedroom did not work despite changing light bulb, however room did have ceiling fan light which did operate. Also community information book ( listing amenities, attractions in area , etc. needs to updated with current attraction prices. I consider these things minor. Overall nice community and home, good for price.

I would recommend this property to a friend.
