The home is situated just 3 minutes from Disney World and 10 minutes from Sea World and Universal Studios. There are numerous restaurants 1 minute from the home. There is also substantial shopping opportunities within a 5-minute drive from the home. Emerald Island is the closest gated community to Disney and is an oasis of calm and tranquility as a relief from the hectic pace of the parks and attractions.
This villa was awesome. The space was unbelievable. The space is great. The location was perfect. The villa was so clean. Everything we needed for a great vacation was there. The children enjoyed the pool. The adults enjoyed the spa. The grill is a little old, but we were able to use it. Thank you for an awesome stay. Looking forward to the next visit.
This house was very comfortable for 4 Adults, 4 Teens, and two children. The house provided everything we needed and any questions I had were answered immediately. The rooms were all a good size and it never felt like you were cramped for space. Breakfast on the lanai each morning was a nice treat. All the kids practically lived in the pool.
We were only a few minutes from all Disney attractions and good shopping. This was out first house rental in Florida and were were very pleased. We took in some Disney, we went on Airboat rides and even drove to Coa-Coa beach for a day.
The BBQ was in rough shape but it did work well. And 2 weeks after we returned home our deposit arrived in the mail.
We will definately do this again, Thanks June for letting us enjoy your home. I wish you all the best. I will book earlier next year.
FYI for Canadians - you don't need pool heat in May. :)
We have been to Disney a number of times but this was the first time we rented a house. We have have to say the accommodations were well above our expectations. The house had everything we neeed - in fact we have 4 families (14 people) and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved every minute of our stay - from the great pool to the cleanliness of the home to the games room for the kids. It had everything we needed for the perfect vacation and it was just minutes away from Disney, Universal and Sea World. We'll definitely be back again. The owner of the home, Lily, is simply the best. She is quick to respond to all of your questions. It made the transaction and booking one of the easiest we have ever done. We highly recommond this property.
To start with, the owner's prompt replies to my emails made the whole transaction easy since we were first timers in renting a vacation home. To end the whole transaction, the owner returned all of the deposit.
What matters most is that our families had a great time. The families that opted to stay in the house, while the younger families went to Disney, enjoyed every aspect of the house: cooking in the kitchen with all the utensils, playing Foosball, air hockey, and pool in the game room, etc. The babies had a crib, high chair, and stroller available for no charge which made traveling easier. We had fun.
I posted a link to Facebook. Good luck and hope to stay here in the near future.
