Emerald Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Orlando - Kissimmee - Disney World - Florida. This beautiful, privately-owned home is located less than 5 minutes from Disney's Animal Kingdom. We have 'renewed our home for your enjoyment. New paint inside and out, new carpet, refinishing of cabinetry, new leather furniture and a New Big Screen, flat screen HD TV and PLAYSTATION 2 for the KIDS! If you are looking for the ultimate romantic home or just a very special home for you and your family this is the one!

The luxurious master suite is as romantic as it gets. The king size bed has the thickest, plushest pillow top mattress you can find. Relax in this comfortable bed and watch the wall-recessed TV. Want to really relax? Then let the 12 soothing jets of the two person double sized Jacuzzi reinvigorate you and that special person in your life. The huge 6' by 6' two person, twin headed shower lets water strike your entire body. Get ready for that special evening with his and her vanities.

Our pool is 36 feet long, 50% larger than a standard pool. The covered lanai has a reclining lounge chair as well as rocker. You will enjoy eating 'al Fresco' while enjoying the cool breeze generated from the fan above the generous dining table. If needed the pool can be heated and it is totally protected from outside pests with its huge screen enclosure.

The home has 16-foot vaulted ceilings with huge archways. Its decorator-painted scheme and wallpaper provide the elegance you deserve. The separate living room has a built in desk with internet hookup available as well. Your family room looks onto the pool area and allows you to watch the 47 inch flat screen HD TV at the same time you watch and hear the falling water.

Your home has a formal dining room, large kitchen with breakfast area, laundry room, a second bedroom (queen size bed) with the same plush mattresses as in the king master suite, and a bedroom with two twin beds themed in the tradition of Disney. A two-car garage is also available for your use.

This home is a vacation destination unto itself. It is fully-equipped with everything you would need to make this your perfect vacation. Isn't it time you felt the magic and had a 5 Star Vacation? It's time to be a kid again and watch the nightly fireworks over Cinderella's Castle!

We look forward to having you as a guest soon!

About The Owner

I have become a Florida resident and Real Estate broker to assist others with the opportunity to own a place in the Florida Sun. Our family and extended family now offer our guest many unique homes and condos, all very near Disney and we treat them like what they are - our family homes. We live near the homes and take care of the homes. One of our family is nearby to answer your questions and help you with a problem should something occur that you need our help. We keep 're-investing into our properties to assure your family of a great experience! All homes are not alike. Pictures are worth a thousand words - however, if the pictures are of when a home was built new - then they are worthless! Our homes are very modern and super located. Let's face it - the better locations were not built yesterday - but our homes look like they were built yesterday. This is the commitment we make to our guests and our family's future depends on our guest. If you want a cheap home - we are not it - however, if you want a great value - you've found it.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Great fit for our big family

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and roomy. With four children, we couldn't see paying for accommodations on Disney property. This house was close enough to the parks yet allowed us to escape to a quiet home and neighborhood each evening. While the kitchen could have been better stocked with supplies for the amount of cooking I chose to do, I was able to make do. The pool was a perfect fit for my kids to take a few quick swims after short days at the Disney parks. We would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to friends and family!

Owner's Response: KC, thanks for your kind words about our home. We offer 9 different properties and it is important to us that you enjoy your stay - we want you and your friends back. If you would please let me know what you felt was short in the kitchen, I will certainly review it and let you know what we will do about it and why for future guest. Our homes are usually adequate, but with all the great cooks around, we probably will never have everything you are use to having. Things I have never heard of, seem to very important to different families. We serve people from all over the world and we are often surprised by what guest expect to provide. Things like cappacino machines, specialized mixing devices, pans, etc. But as I said, we value your opinions and want to make your stay as happy and provide as much as feasible. Thanks again for staying with us and taking the time to share your thoughts with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Regards, Mickey

Clean and convenient but understocked

  • 3 of 5

The house is well situated and generally as described. However it was missing many essentials normally found in a rental such as a kitchen sponge and soap, dishwasher and laundry detergent, and basics like salt and pepper. Although it was cold during our visit, we paid extra for the pool to be heated and it was not warm enough to use. Additionally, there was not enough hot water to use the whirlpool tub in the master bath.

Owner's Response: Adam, I am sorry for your issues. I'm glad you found the home to be as advertised. Unfortunately, it was unusually cold when you were here, but we checked the pool and it was over 80 degrees as promised when you arrived. Many people don't follow instructions to keep the pool warm, since you didn't contact us we don't know if you followed procedures. Our pools have pool blankets on them, if you want a warm pool, you must keep it covered when you are not using it, especially during very cold periods. Pools will lose one degree per hour during normal days and up to 2 degrees per hour during cold days when they are uncovered. Thus if you use your pool and don't cover it back up, from 8 p.m. til 10 a.m. the pool can lose over 20 degrees of heat! The heat units can only raise a pool by 1 degree per hour in extreme cold conditions. It can only effectively work during the daylight hours and when temps are above 45 degrees. We have 7 other homes, none of them reported a pool heating issue. The next guest who followed you has just submitted a review, they came in directly behind you, and reported no pool heating issues. Regardless, I'm sorry about that. As to the mop, you were a back to back and house keeping reported the mop missing from the last guest. You checked in and since you were their for only 4 days, it was overlooked. I have discussed this with the housekeepers - again had you let us know - you would have had one - as I would have personally brought it to you! An initial supply of all the things you mentioned except salt and pepper were at the house. We never leave food products - this is for your safety! If you think about this you will realize why, as we can't control those items. It would be nice, some people expect coffee, tea, sugar, milk, bread, soft drinks, etc., etc. We can provide those things and go shopping for you - but that would be an additional fee. Most people would rather save the money and choose their personal taste choices. I hope you give us another chance. If you do visit us again, let us know immediately - we do respond as you will see from comments from other guest. Thanks for your comments and I'm sure others will appreciate them as well. Mickey

Minnie mansion

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home!!! It was perfect. We were able to go to the park and come back for the kids to nap and eat lunch and then back to the park until close. And we loved the heated pool. The owner was very very nice and helpful. We will be staying again.

Surprise Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I took a trip down to Orlando to surprise our daughter for her 6th birthday. She was thrilled to have a home away from home, as were we. We loved the place. It was perfect for our family of 4 and our needs. It was the first time we rented and did not have any problems. Thank you! Jhony was great to work with.

Our small family business is committed to make your stay special - as meeting your expectations makes us so happy and of course keeps you and your family coming back! We can't wait to see you and your friends again! Mickey

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

On short notice my wife and I rented this home and we are glad we did. This is a large home, so even though it was just the two of us there was plenty of room for at least 4 more people. We stayed in the master bedroom, which was very comfortable. There were also plenty of towels for us to use.

Being close to the main freeway gave us access to Disney and the other local attractions, with Disney only a 10 - 15 minute drive away. Having the kitchen was great as we ate breakfasts in, then went to the parks and had dinner close to the house (there are many excellent restaraunts right near the home). This saves a ton of money as we only purchased a couple of meals at Disney. Also, go to the Publix or Super Target and buy a case or two of water and bring water each day to the parks, this savings will also add up quickly.

When we didn't leave the house the large pool was fantastic and provided a nice resting place for this much needed vacation.

Mickey, the property owner was nearby if we had any issues and was very easy to work with.

This was our first VRBO rental and we are happy we did.

The home was lovely and clean and accommodated three generations perfectly. The pool was delightful, especially on foggy, misty days. Access to Disney was a breeze.
