Perfect, exceeded our expectations. Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This is my first review with Homeaway.
This place is brilliant. We spent a long time investigating where to stay and what villa to stay in but I'm really glad we ended up in this villa.
On arrival the place was perfect with lights already on which felt very welcoming, air conditioning already at a nice temperature and the place was spotless!
This was our first time in the USA but we had family that were in Windsor Palms who were regular holiday makers in Florida. They thought our villa was the best they had seen in all their trips and they said they will book this villa when they come back in the future. The pictures on the web site don't do it justice. The front living space and master bedroom deserve special mentions of quality and luxury furniture.
Pool and games room were also fantastic and well used. Wireless internet was really handy plus having cable TV meant we still caught the Final of Wimbledon.
About Emerald Island, I thought it was a great resort and you felt very safe with the guard gated entrance to the resort but what I was impressed with was that the resort are always working each day on maintaining the resort at its high standards through maintenance. With leaving at 10:00 on the last day the people at the main office also kindly looked after our cases into later in the day.
The resort being just of the 192 and not far from the I4 also made it a great base for all the parks.
Eating out: I had mixed results when eating out, the best was Bahama Breeze which is on the 192 beside the Super Target supermarket and Hard Rock Café at Universal. Disappointment was Denis Diner which we had been looking forward to but others have told me that the Denis at International Drive was very good.
I would also like to try and leave advice for room for improvement for this villa to give a balanced review but I really can’t think of any.
I will come back to Florida again in the future but won’t waste any time looking for a villa because I will just come straight back to this one. Obviously from this review I would recommend this villa to everyone.

Best Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5
Good morning Bryce,

I just wanted to tell you that my family and I loved house! This is our
7th time going to Disney in the past 3 years. It was by far the best trip
that we have ever had. The house had a lot to do with us having such a great
time! It had everything that we needed and was absolutely perfect!

You can count on us to come back again and again!

Thank you,

Mickey

Disney Vacation Rental 318056

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a wonderful Christmas week Disney vacation and this rental was a factor that contributed to our enjoyable stay. The house was accurately described in the listing. The layout and amenities met our needs. The three elementary-aged children loved the pool - a nice relaxing change of pace after the crush at the Disney parks each day. The adults really appreciated the location with easy access to the parks. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe, so jogging and walking were hassle free. The drawback that kept me from giving this a 5 star rating was the food preparation area. We have stayed in vacation rentals all across the country, one reason is so that we can prepare our own meals. This rental lacked even the basics for family meal preparation (9x13 baking pan, casserole dishes, cookie sheets) - we ended up having to improvise and/or use disposable bakeware. A BBQ grill would have been appreciated, also - we noted that earlier renters commented on the grill - but it seems that it is no longer available. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting the parks - and if you plan on eating out most meals, it should meet your needs. Thanks for helping to make our stay a memorable one.

There are better options...

  • 2 of 5
I should first point out that I am an experienced villa renter - this year alone I have rented over 6 different homes both domestically and internationally. So this review is from experience. And to put it bluntly - this one was just OK. And, no, we would not stay here again if back in the area.

Does the villa look the way it does in the pictures? Well, mostly. By mostly I mean - the "game room" aka "located in the garage" (no photos on the listing) is broken down and shabby. The pool table is falling apart - and the ambiance of the "game room" included an old lazy boy chair, broken furniture, and an old TV. Not very safe for my 2 year old daughter.

The pool is as shown, meaning small. So good for maybe 3 adults. But the 'hot tub' is not a hot tub. The water is about is only a little warmer then the regular pool - and the jets that make the bubbles don't work. This issue has not been fixed in many months if you read the other reviews in the guest book at the house.

Also, there is really no decent cook ware to speak of in the home. This issue is very frustrating as a renter, because part of the reason you rent a home is to make meals there. The 2 pans in the house are the kind that everything sticks too - meaning you can't even make eggs / pancakes without 20 minutes of clean up. Which is rather inexcusable seeing as you are 5 minutes to Target - I mean $50 and you can have a whole non stick pan collection. Fact is, I have had better kitchenware in out-of-the-way Caribbean villas - and they at least have an excuse! Also - there are a few items shown in the kitchen that are not in the villa. For example - the blender sitting on the counter, and there is no grill with the house.

Oh the issue with the grill...THIS IS THE WEIRDEST THING I HAVE EVER HAD HAPPEN WHILE RENTING A VILLA.

Upon arriving at the villa there was a grill in the back of the house. So we went to the grocery store and loaded up on burgers etc. All was well until Wednesday night, I went out to heat up the grill, and it was GONE! We called the "local management company" - that night, then twice the next day (and they said they "pride themselves on service" Ha!) - and they said the grill was an additional cost and they would be happy to bring it back for $45. Thanks for the heads up Bryce.

Location - yes the location is good, close to supermarkets etc. However, not 3 miles to Disney - it's 9 miles. It's 2.5 miles just to get to the highway.

Owner's Response: Having never had a poor review previously we are very upset by this post.
We believe that the root cause of the review is a misunderstanding by the guest that a bbq grill was provided with the house. The guest never asked if a bbq was available at the house, nor is any mention made of a bbq in our listing. If a potential guest asks about bbq grills, we always advise that we do not keep one at the house as they attract insects and their cleanliness cannot be guaranteed. We advise guests to rent one from our management company who charge $45 per week for a clean bbq delivered to the house. We believe this to be the most hygienic solution for our guests. Unfortunately the previous guests’ rented bbq was not taken away prior to the arrival of these guests. They were very unhappy that our management company rightly took it away.
We are pleased that the guest agrees that the house is properly reflected in the pictures on our listing.
With regards to the comments regarding the games room, in common with all houses on Emerald Island, the games room is located in the garage. I am sorry if the guest thought it was shabby, we have never had this comment before and on our next visit we will take photos so that guests can see the room prior to booking.
The pool is the standard size of pool at Emerald Island, and has always been adequate for previous guests. Our family and friends have had many good times in the pool, and it is a pity that this guest felt it was too small for them.
The spa is working, and I can only assume that the guest did not know how to turn it on. If they had difficulty, they should have contacted the management company for help.
With regards to cookware, we have a full set at the house – all good quality. We have regular long term guests, and they have never had a problem with the quantity or quality of the cookware that we provide.
The blender is normally in a cupboard, and I can only assume again that the guest did not look in the right cupboard or ask the management company where it was.
Emerald Island is one of the closest resorts to Disney. The distance we quote from the resort to the Disney Arch is accurate, however the Disney lot is huge and the distance to individual parks within Disney varies greatly. The map is on the listing for all to see and previous guests have been very happy with the location.
We will do all in our power to ensure that future guests have a great time and we do not get a repeat of this review in future
