Beautiful, Safe and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful! Everything was as the description said. We felt safe as this is a gated community with a security guard (unlike other places we have stayed in Florida) There is more than enough space for everyone to enjoy this house. We had two other families stay with us ranging from 4 to 70. We all loved staying here. The longest drive we had was 45 minutes to Busch Gardens...all Disney parks were within a 15 minute drive. Grocery store, Walgreens, Walmart, Sam's Club and many Restaurants all just a few minutes drive. I would recommend renting this house to anyone. We loved staying here and can't wait to come again in a couple years!

Thanks Lynn for such a beautiful place!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

WOW was the first word out of our mouths when we walked in the front door! We felt like we were home - so warm and inviting. The manager Ms. Huxell was there to greet us. She was courteous, pleasant, and very friendly. Any questions we had were quickly answered by her.

This house is at a very high standard. It's fully finished and is very modern. It had everything we would need from a game room to a pool with jacuzzi to plenty of cutlery and linen. The bedrooms are very spacious and the kitchen is well equipped with a very large fridge. The TVs have a lot of channels we like and there is a TV in every bedroom. The house has Wifi access so we can use our laptops.

The resort in which the house is located, Emerald Island, is a secure gated community with a security officer at the front gate and we felt completely safe during our stay. The location was great with Disney only a 10-15 minute drive and the other parks a bit further on. There were restaurants and a supermarket only a 5 minute drive from Emerald island. We went to Clearwater for a day, Disney, and Old Town (if you haven't been to Old Town it's a must see, something for everyone).

We would love to use this home as our accommodations again in the future. We highly recommend this home to anyone, and we have already been asked for the info by family and friends, especially after they saw our pictures on facebook.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We love to hear that our guests have had a good time.

Needs some work

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this house for a large family reunion. There were 12 of us in the house. 6 adults and 6 children. We are sure at one point the home was as presented but it now needs some maintenance.


It was large and had great space for our family.

The children greatly enjoyed the pool.

Plenty of dining space.

TV area worked well as we brought our own xBox.

Good pantry space.

Beds were comfortable.

Location was confident to theme parks and the whole family stayed in the Emerald Island Resort.

Convenient to necessary grocery shopping.

Coffee maker was broken upon our arrival. Informed management company and new one was supplied.

Sufficiently clean but could have used more detail cleaning.


The kitchen is no longer well supplied to cook for this many people. Totally inadequate. Not enough pots and those present were in poor condition. No storage containers, only one small pitcher. Could go on.

Toaster was broken, only toasted one side.

As previously reviewed the refrigerator is too small, doesn't open the right direction and the ice maker doesn't work.

Struggled to find sufficient towels for all of us.

Master bathroom not well designed for use.

Toilet seat was broken.

Many lightbulbs were either burnt out or missing.

One lamp was in two pieces.

Only one trash can outside. Not large enough to handle the trash for this size house. We were informed by the President of the homeowners association who lived next door that they are required to have three trash cans.

There is no air hockey table as pictured.

Ping pong table had no net and no functioning paddles.

Internet went out toward the end of our stay due to a storm. Very specific instructions that we were not to reset the router or we would be charged. Therefore we no longer had Internet service.

Many of the infowar coverings are broken and/or not functional.

We informed the owner of broken items upon our arrival so we old not be charged.

Family members stayed in two other homes in Emerald Island which were in much better condition, of similar size and they paid less for their rental. We do not recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: The guests did not contact the owner properly. There was a miscommunication. Before the guest check-in, the owner had informed the guests that owner's e-mail address had been changed and provided him with a new e-mail address. However, the guest still used the old e-mail address to contact the owner and did not call the owner for the problems in the villa when they stayed in the villa. Therefore, the owner did not know any problem during their stay. On September 3, 2013, a new professional management company was hired . Everything is in good condition and well functioning. The refrigerator has been replaced by a new double door refrigerator (please see attached picture). More towels, face cloths, and hand towels have been added. More kitchen utensils has been added. Furthermore, the pool furniture was updated. The broken toilet seat has been changed. The toaster and coffee maker were also replaced. There are 3 trashcans on the site. The new management company promised that prior to the guests' arrival, the cleaning team will have prepared the villa. All linens have been washed. TVs, appliances, A/C, and light fixtures have been tested and are in good working condition. In addition, the company will assign an inspector to check and approve the property preparation. The owner has done everything to improve the quality of the villa.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I made a great choice in selecting this beautiful home it met my standards to the fullest, my family was as wowed and amazed of its location and all of the supplies we had in the home at time of arrival. I have a 3year old and a 5 year old that would had loved to pack the mermaid room just as is to take with them back home. Lynn was very helpful she got to me back on time with any questions and concerns i had before i booked and after our arrival.

Am very great full for making our vacation memorable!!!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 5th visit to Emerald Island and our first stay at this home-our 17 day trip to Orlando was a blast! Lynn made the reservation process and our check-in a breeze.

The villas location on S. Key made entry/exit to Emerald Island very convienent. The home itself looked very much like the online photos. We enjoyed the towel orgami that greeted us upon arrival, the towels and linens provided, the spaciousness of the home...the pool was also spacious, private and very clean. We appreciated the pool chairs and the pool alarm. They thought of lots of details to make your stay enjoyable.

The bedrooms were great. This home features THREE master suites and four of the six bedrooms have insuite bathrooms-extraordinary! I appreciated the hooks on the back of the second master bathroom doors (it was very thoughtful of the owners and I suggest that they place these hooks on the backs of all other bathroom doors) The decor of the home was great-my 8 yr. old enjoyed the Little Mermaid Room. My suggeston to the owners/maintenance personnel isthat they replace the refrigerator-its too small for a home this size, the door opens backwards, many of the drawers are broken and it froze much of our food (we didn't touch the settings). We appreciated the prompt response to the minor maintenance call and will be emailing Lynn regarding other observations-most importantly, we hope to return!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and memorable time at our "vacation house" as the grandgirls like to call it. When we arrived, we found the house to be very clean, in great condition, and exactly as pictured in the photographs. Having so many bedrooms along with extra mattresses and a futon meant we could make everyone happy with the sleeping arrangements. And for once we had enough bathrooms! There was plenty to entertain the kids of all ages - the gameroom equipment, the pool, and TVs in almost every room.

The location was very convenient to all of the Disney parks (look for the backway into the park to save a lot of time and hassle) and also shopping and restaurants. Make sure to go to Walmart or Publix if you are stocking up for the week - MUCH cheaper and only a few more minutes away. The neighborhood was very safe and also very quiet.

The house is well stocked with linens and towels and the kitchen is well-equipped with all of the basic necessities. We did save SO MUCH MONEY and ate much healthier by having a full kitchen and grill available.

The open and spacious floor plan of the house meant we spent a lot of family time together which is exactly what we wanted. But people could also find a quiet space if they needed to relax or rest.

Customer service was also VERY good. I received immediate responses when sending the owner questions via email and I received the rental contract just as promised. We had a minor issue with the refrigerator the first night and so we called the maintenance number for service....and just a few minutes later Lynn called us to make sure we had been taken care of.

Thank you for a fantastic vacation - it was everything we hoped it would be! We will be back!!
