About Clyde

My wife Amanda and I purchased our Disney Forest Home at Emerald Island, Kissimmee to enjoy the wonders of Disney with our now four young boys. I am a Canadian Chartered Accountant and my wife is an Insurance Underwriter. Family time is important to us with our children and we hope that those that rent our property will treasure the memories of their Disney family vacations as we do. We take pride in our property ownership and are constantly upgrading the features in our house to create an even greater vacation experience for our guests.

Clyde purchased this house in 2010

Why Clyde chose Emerald Island

We selected Emerald Island for ownership as we preferred a gated and guarded community for safety issues with very close proximity to the Disney resort parks and local Orlando attractions. We wanted an environment where we felt we were on vacation and the luxury at Emerald Island provided exactly that. We have a very short walk to the Resort Clubhouse to enjoy a drink and snack at the community pool/sauna/spa, the nature walk is fabulous and peaceful, we love playing tennis, and the community is surrounded by water making additional development impossible to protect the exclusivity and privacy of the Emerald Island Resort.

What makes this house unique

Our property is unique to other vacation homes in the community as we back onto the conservation forest/nature walk. While other properties face the backyards of homes, have exposure to wind due to open space, or do not have day long sunlight, our backyard is peaceful and private with day long exposure to the sun so you really can relax when taking a swim or enjoying the upgraded Whirlpool Jacuzzi jet spa. Our house has undergone a full painting, replacement of carpet in all common areas with tile, new leather furniture, new area rugs, two (2) new HD LCD Big Screen TVs one with Blu-Ray player and the other with DVD player, new kitchen furniture, new linnens & towels, new coffee table set, new kitchen small appliances, new home pictures and decorations, new pool seating set & pool accessories, new automated spa equipment, and updated landscaping. We also have new 4 Ton A/C unit to properly cool the home and new Pool/Spa Heater. Our guests can also enjoy WIFI Internet and Unlimited Long Distance calls to the USA and Canada to keep in touch with relatives or your business affairs at home. Our floor plan offers 1,935 square feet of living space on a single level and with no stairs, improves access for elderly, handicapped, wheelchair guests and provides for a cooler living environment. Our home has only tile and laminate flooring with no carpet in living areas. We are comitted to keepying our home clean and updated for the full enjoyment of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and your home could not have been more perfect. We really appreciate how easy you made the rental process and the cleanliness of the home. It was a fantastic vacation and we hope we get a chance to stay again.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I really enjoyed this home. This was our first time staying in Emerald Island resort and we sure hope it won't be our last! This home offered plenty of space. The pool/hot tub were a plus. The home was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Linens appeared brand new. Very close to Disney main gates. Owner and maintenance were great at returning emails/calls. I will definitely keep this property on the list for our future vacations to the area. Thanks for letting us bring our fur baby with us. She sure enjoyed her stay as well! :)

fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six (including grandparents!) chose to stay at Emerald Island resort for our second time, as we love the location and the quiet neighborhood. This was the first time in the "Disney forest home" and it won't be our last! The house was extremely comfortable, with lots of space, and felt like our home away from home. We appreciated the great service we received from both the owner and management. Thank you again!

Wonderful home and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a comfortable place to come home to after long days at the parks, this is the house. We were pleasantly pleased with the layout and the amenities. It had 2 living areas, so there was plenty of room for everyone to relax. We loved the enclosed heated pool and hot tub. The location was perfect! Disneyworld was just minutes away and there were plenty of great restaurants and shops. Best of all, Clyde the owner was wonderful to work with. He provided us with detailed information about the local area and was quick to respond to questions. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This home is clean and in a great location. All the amenities you'll need on vacation. Nice pool and hot tub. Our kids enjoyed having their own bedroom and bathroom. It made getting ready for the parks every morning a breeze. The theme parks are very close, as well as plenty of restaurant choices. Our deposit was sent back to us the day after we checked out. This was our first house rental so I had plenty of questions; Clyde was very helpful and patient!

You will not be disappointed!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week at Disney Forest Home and could not have been more pleased! The house itself was quite spacious, clean and adequately equipped. Our party of 8 had more than sufficient slace and everyone felt comfortable in the house. The kids - both young and old - enjoyed relaxing in the private pool and spa nearly as much as they enjoyed Disney! The location was also ideal - close to several restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Not only was the home minutes away from all the Disney parks but it was an easy commute to Universal, Discovery Cove and SeaWorld.

The owner, Clyde, was fabulous to work with, always responsive to any questions which I had both prior to and subsequent to booking. The security deposit was also returned in a timely basis.

I would most definitely recommend Disney Forest Home to anyone looking for a place to stay that is not only convenient to Disney but can also serve as a comfortable, relaxing "home away from home."

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5
As a celebration of my wife's 70th birthday our family of 6 adults and 3 youths rented Clyde's house for a two week stay and visit to Disney. We had a great stay, the house was even better then the video. All the rooms were in perfect condition and offered separation and ample space for our three families. The pool, spa and game room were a hit by all.
The surrounding area was well maintained and quiet offering us a place to relax after busy days at the parks. This was our second stay at Emerald Island Resort and look forward to a return visit. Clyde made our arrangements, reservations, payments and other information very easy and guided me through the process that a 70+ person sometime needs. We travel on a regular bases an always expect excellent accommodations. It was easy to give Clyde's house a 5 star rating. Thank you Clyde for a memorable vacation.
