About robert davies

We have our own sports travel company in South Wales, UK

We have 3 daughters and a Labrador called Barnie. We love Florida and visit as often as possible

robert davies purchased this villa in 2005

Why robert davies chose Disney / Orlando

When we first saw Emerald Island we loved the relaxed feel yet being so close to the theme parks, restaurants and malls. It's also easy to get to the Gulf and Atlantic beaches. The resort is beautifully maintained with acres of conservation areas and lakes. It is paradise. Our house is a fabulous 6 bedroom villa which has loads of space for small or large groups. There are 3 different lounges, tv s in all rooms and a superb south facing deck with covered lanai, pool and spa

What makes this villa unique

You can be at the parks in a few minutes, yet when you return will be completely relaxed and safe on our wonderful gated resort. If you want the beach it's just a 40 minute drive to Cocoa Beach or one hour to Tampa Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have all had a truly wonderful holiday. The house suited us perfectly. Plenty of space, clean, everything we needed. Pool and games room were fantastic, and for a taller family the huge beds were so comfortable! A lovely place to relax away from the parks and so convenient for shopping, dining and all the parks. Highly recommended. Thank you

Great House, Security Deposit Issues

  • 2 of 5

My family and I had a great stay at the house. Good size and was way better for the kids than being cramped in a hotel room. Short drives to the parks and gives you a break from all things Disney.

If you stay at the house, I recommend thoroughly going through it for any stains/damage when you get there. When we returned home, the owner claimed there were stains on some of the bedspreads. We were fine paying for cleaning of the bedroom that we used even though we didn't notice a stain but we were told we had to pay to replace both bedspreads in a room that we didn't even use (both of the kids wanted to sleep in the Mickey room). The owner has been unable to produce receipts for the bedspreads other than a line item from the management company's statement.

As I said, the house was great but I would make sure you get pictures of items when you get there and when you leave.

Owner's Response: I would like to respond to an extremely unfair review received on my property. Please see the e mail these guests sent immediately after their stay Hi Robert, Thank you for letting us rent your house last week. We had a wonderful time and the accommodations were perfect for our group. How does the security deposit refund work? How long does that take to process? Thanks again, Melissa After checking out our cleaners and management company noticed significant damage caused by these guests. We provided photographic evidence and a statement of costs confirming the damage caused. We also provided a written statement from our management company to confirm that when these guests arrived the house was in perfect condition. Despite the guests claims we received confirmation that all rooms were used by these guests and there was absolutely no doubt they caused the damage Despite this we charged an absolute minimum of $80 for the damage despite having to replace comforters and clean other beds and sofas because of bad and unnecessary staining In the vast majority of cases we do not charge for damage, particularly if it is accidental. We would prefer to waive any costs unless they are major However we had evidence that this damage was caused by these guests, and in these circumstances most guest accept responsibility and cover any costs. The guests in question were not prepared to accept the damage they had caused nor to pay part of the cost of repair. Because they know they are responsible for the costs and we have imposed these charges they have chosen to post unfair negative comments and reviews There is absolutely no need to inspect or photograph the house on arrival. We are extremely flexible and understand accidents happen. No guests are ever charged for damage for which they are not responsible. In 11 years of renting this property, we have only imposed a charge on 3 occasions ! We are extremely proud of our home and take great care to ensure guests enjoy their stay. The vast majority of guests provide positive response and have their security deposit refunded fully. We fully accept negative reviews if they are justified, but on this occasion there is absolutely no justification in the remarks made by guests who felt we should accept the damage they caused but not expect them to pay.

Perfect for our Group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early February 2016 for a extended weekend soccer tournament that our boys won at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex called Disney's Presidents Shootout. The location was perfect for getting to the fields within 15 minutes or less.

The Tiki Bar near the pool at the clubhouse had great drinks as well as food to go with those drinks. (I had the chicken wings and a couple Long Island iced teas! Yum). There is a game room, play ground and a heated pool there that our boys loved!

The security at the subdivision was air tight! You will want to have your guests and the car tag numbers documented in advance as you will need to go to the clubhouse at checkin and leave $10 per guest car along with the paperwork they have you fill out. I recommend making sure all your guest have the electronic confirmation showing address readily available before reaching the entry to facilitate a smoother entry at the gate. If you plan to invite guest over to the villa who are not actually staying with you, they need to be listed on the paperwork as well or they won't allow them entry into the gates.

The house was perfect for us. We had 4 families comfortably stay here. The lounge area around the pool was perfect for relaxing. The game room was a big hit with the kids.

The few questions we had, were easily answered. The owner responded very timely!

We will travel back to the Disney Internatiinal tournament this summer, we wanted to rent the house again, but it was already booked. Bummer! It was a GREAT GREAT STAY!

Perfect for our occasion

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our occasion. We had 4 families who attended the Disney Presidents Cup at ESPN Wide World of Sports. This location was a quick distance to the fields and provided the perfect environment to keep the kids entertained and the adults relaxed. There was plenty of space and EVERYONE was pleased. We are definitely considering returning for our next tournament memorial weekend if we can. One thing to consider that would make life easier is to have all the license plate numbers to all your guests vehicles when checking in to help faculty an easier entry into the resort. The line at the guards gate is extremely long if not prepared before hand. Also, you will need cash for the club house tiki bar and the Access key for your vehicle.
