Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa was excellent and accommodated 16 people with plenty of space. The pool and jacuzzi got plenty of use when we got back from the parks. Plenty of towels and all other amenities you could want. Excellent location and very near to Disney.

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 2010

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.

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!

Fantastic stay at the Golden Palms

  • 5 of 5
Myself , my Wife, Children and Grandchildern stayed at this wonderful property for 9 days in March 2011. The location would be hard to beat as it is located near all major venues, shopping, restaurants, and various reaction spots. The Emerald Island Resort has nice amenities and offered various events daily while we were there as well. The Villa itself was very clean and well kept and filled our evey need. The pool offered hours and hours of enjoyment while not at the near by attractions, and with the game room and numerous TV's no room ever became overcrowded. I would absolutely recomend this Villa and Resort to anyone considering a villa style vacation.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed a week at this wonderful property June 12-19, 2010. There were 9 of us (7 adults, a teenager, and 2 5-year-olds). Everyone, young and old, loved the property. The kids would have been content to stay in the pool the entire time. (Well, perhaps going to Magic Kingdom every now and again). There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and the home was just as pictured. Philip and Louise were wonderful to deal with, always getting back to me immediately if I had a question, while searching for the perfect vacation home. You can't go wrong by choosing this lovely home! I have and will recommend to any big group I know. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We hope to return again.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
My family - there were 13 of us - rented this home in March of this year. I would HIGHLY recommend this home, and the owner was wonderful to deal with. The house was beautiful, clean, and located in a great community. The kids (ages 5, 8, 11, 14) loved the pool and the game room and the Mickey themed room was a huge hit for the two youngest. It was a great vacation and would not hesitate to deal with this owner again.
