Welcome to Our Villa...
* The Resort *
Situated in the magnificent gated resort of Emerald Island is our luxurious 7 bedrooms/5.5 bathrooms villa that sleeps up to 16 people in lavishness and comfort. Encircled by a protected buffer of woodlands and wetlands, our Palm Oasis Villa is a "land island" amidst a sea of lush vegetation. Only a few miles from Walt Disney World and a short walk or drive to shopping and dining, 2 supermarkets, and many golf courses, this "island" serves as a haven from the larger world while remaining central to everything the world's most popular destination with millions of visitors a year has to offer.

The rooms consist of 3 master suites each with king size beds and their own private bathrooms, 1 queen size bed, 2 double beds, 4 twin size beds (1 set of bunk beds), and a double-sized sofa bed. Every bed has a plush large Pillowtop Mattress unlike any you've ever slept on! Trust me.

* Pool & Spa *
For the ultimate in relaxation and enjoyment the villa has its own enlarged private South-Facing pool with jacuzzi & massage, plus 10 foot covered lanai for shade, so you can unwind after a busy day at the parks. The pool is enclosed with a screen from all sides and is heated. The serene view from the pool deck and backyard is of a wooded conservation area with a lake so there is more privacy than most properties in Emerald Island. The villa also has a gas BBQ grill in the backyard available for your use at any time.

The home also has 2 games rooms for your families enjoyment, equipped with a pool table, air hockey, foosball table, darts, board games, TV, DVD, VCR, and playstation 2 with games. You and the kids will find it hard to leave the house.

The house was bare with zero supplies. No garbage bags, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels or spare light bulbs. Zero condiments - no salt and pepper or anything else. Insufficient toilet paper. And falling apart. Several light bulbs burned out, hot tub jets did not work. BBQ on it's last legs - rusting out and several burners would not light. Hole in roof and a racoon living in the attic. One bathroom had pervasive rancid smell. Other bathroom infested with lady bugs. Fence around pool partially broken. Great neighbourhood and good location, but stay somewhere else.
We had stayed at the exact same home 6 years ago. Very surprised this time at how poor everything was. The home was denuded of any staples: zero laundry soap, dishwasher, hand-dish soap, no salt & pepper, 1 medium garbage bag for the entire week, no cleaning supplies, generally pretty clear the Owner no longer used the property. We bought (and left 1/2 used containers) of laundry, dishwasher, and hand-dish washing soap for the next people. We also bought and left the unused rolls of paper towel and toilet paper as there was only one roll of TP when we arrived (and zero paper towels in the kitchen). We also ending up leaving 1/2 containers of all the condiments we purchased for the next guests--salad dressing, ketchup, mustard, etc.
The physical maintenance was also dismal. These things didn't work: hot-tub jets, 1/2 the bbq burners, recliner on the lazy-boy couch, the wicks were long-exhausted on the nice outdoor candles, major cracks in joints some of the outdoor plastic furniture, light bulb burnt out (again no spares in the unit). The pool toys were also much fewer than our last visit. We especially weren't impressed by the huge number in ladybugs in the master ensuite. The unrepaired hole in the roof with the raccoon living in it is typical of the care put into this property, but the kids thought it was fun to watch him.
