About Craig Strangward
Our family first visited Florida in 1995 and have made it a regular holiday destination ever since. After our first few visits we discovered Emerald Island Resort and continued to rent villas there as it is superbly located and all the villas are of outstanding quality. We enjoyed Florida so much over the years that we decided to buy two villas in Emerald Island Resort and would like to welcome you into one of our homes for a wonderful vacation.
Craig Strangward purchased this villa in 2009
Why Craig Strangward chose Emerald Island
The Emerald Island Resort is superbly located on the US192, just 3 miles (10 minutes drive) from Disney World yet secluded in a gated community surrounded by a conservation area for those relaxing evenings.
What makes this villa unique
Our villa is so close to Disney World that we can visit the theme parks in the morning, come back during the evening to relax and cool off in the pool and have a bite to eat then return for more fun and fireworks at the theme parks! The south facing pool overlooks a lake and conservation area, perfect to enjoy the Floridian sunsets. Our villa isn't just close to Disney World; Universal Studios and Sea World are within a 25 minute drive to! There is a large supermarket just over 1 mile from the villa and superb restaurants are all located within a couple miles. Even on the days when we relax at the villa there is plenty to do, the games room with top of the range pool table, air hockey and foosball keeps the family entertained for hours!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in your villa. We were extremely impressed with the layout, cleanliness and the fact that this is the first villa that did not leave our clothing smelling musty. The air con was set perfect. The pool was amazingly clean and clear. Most importantly - we felt complete peace of mind from the start of our booking. Craig was at the end of the phone at all times and was more than happy to give some very good advice to help with our holiday. We would most definitely recommend to our friends and family. Thank you for allowing us to stay.
