I wanted to thank you again for sharing your home with us this past week. It was without a doubt our best vacation ever!! The kids are already asking when we can go back to our Florida house. I think your house has ruined me from ever staying in a hotel for an extended vacation. If you don’t go to a theme park everyday, I don’t know how families keep from driving one another nuts in a hotel room all day. I am not sure what the kids enjoyed more the pool, the game room or the Ps2 (my son has informed me that he would like one for Christmas) but whatever it was it was enough of a diversion that the adults were able to sit in the hot tub or watch tv in peace and quiet. You truly have thought of everything when you open this house up to families like mine. So, thank you. I am glad that when we were looking for places to stay we found your website. With all that said, I was wondering if you had started booking for 2008? We are planning on coming back to Florida for Presidents week in February. I received an email today for the [security] deposit [refund], thank you that was extremely fast!! Well back to reality tomorrow. Thanks for a great vacation!!
My wife and I have 70 years of teaching between us. Our goal is for each and every guest to have the very best vacation of their lives, to tell their friends, and to return. We enjoy giving guests information and tips that will help them have the very best vacation of their lives.
Emerald Island Resort was built for the Disney guest. After recovering nicely from their early years of growing pains, Emerald Island Resort is central Florida's premier destination. This is a gated and guarded community with night patrols throughout the resort. Recent improvements such as concierge trash and recycle service have made Emerald Island Resort an outstanding resort community.
