PROPERTY REVIEWS: We are excited as well, and after seeing the pictures of the house, we are even more excited. I think that the house is what makes the vacation for all of us but especially for my mom and her sister, because some days they don't want to go anywhere, but just stay at the house and enjoy the atmosphere.
Could you please email and let us know when you have received our balance. Thanks a lot!!

The stay was great. We much prefer the location. It was the first time we had been off 192. The closeness to Disney etc made a huge difference.
We will be sure to recommend it to everyone.
Wow! You really do have a beautiful home in Florida! We really enjoyed our
stay and we all thought the time passed much to quickly
We really had a great time, especially using the pool and hot tub. I think
my son could be in the water 24/7 !!! The location was also great to do a
lot of sight-seeing
FURTHER REVIEWS: Smith Family – Aug ‘06 – ‘Had a great holiday, weather was excellent, villa was lovely would stay there again, easy to get to. The kids enjoyed the games room didn't really have much time to use the pool as we were out most of the day, wish we had three weeks there, it's so hectic would of been nice to relax round the pool a bit!'
Jefferson Family – Oct ‘06 – 'Everything was absolutely superb. The villa was just what we wanted and your organisation of the trip was first rate. We knew the area well having stayed at Lindfields and Rolling Hills previously but Emerald Island was in a different league! We all had a marvellous holiday and will certainly pass on your details to anyone interested and as frequent Florida visitors we're already planning a return trip with other family members who couldn't come this time.'
Further Reviews: What a fantastic villa, a real home from home. If only my home had a pool as nice as this one life would be perfect! Couldn’t fault any of the facilities and impressed with the management company. It’s the little touches that make this villa stand out, like the welcome pack which was unexpected but after a 9 hour flight delay was a real godsend. Emerald Island really is in an ideal spot for Disney, 10 min drive at the most and Sea World and Universal are within half and hour too. The community the villa is in is also out of this world, immaculately kept with friendly, helpful staff. I would recommend this villa and community as the place to stay in Florida and we are already planning a return visit in a few years.
its hard to say how good it really is and what a fantastic time we had in a paragraph
We are Nikki and William from the UK we live on the Wirral not far from Liverpool,we have been married 26 years this year and try to visit Florida 2 or 3 times a year, we enjoy taking our Grand children with us if we are allowed, we have 2 sons and 1 daughter all in there mid 20s
Nikki and William Ferguson purchased this house in 2006
We have an excellent management company looking after our home, they are a married couple looking after just 15 homes on Emerald island resort,we have tried the big companies but they do not offer the personal service we think our guests prefer, they are on the resort every day passing by checking all is well with the pools etc, and are only a phone call away.
We fell in love with emerald island resort because of the lush planting and Nature walk, the sunsets behind the home are glorious, we have watched it hundreds of times now but we never tire of it especially while sitting in the spa with a beer or two, Home has No Back Neighbors from pool area so you will not be overlooked ,
house directly next door to the left is for owners own vacations and are hardly every their, house to the right is 60 feet away from ours and you can not be seen from their pool area
If you haven't already booked this villa book it now
Thanks to Bill (villa owner) for a fabulous villa fitted out with everything we could need. From a smooth and simple booking to a wonderful 2 week stay and thanks to Paul (house manager) on hand if needed.
Located in a gated complex the area is quiet but just minutes from shops & restaurants - and a great supermarket where you can get all your food & drinks
Universal, Disney, Seaworld, Busch Gardens, all the other parks & attractions are an easy drive
Doesn't matter where you are going it's simple from the villa.
This house has everything you need for your stay including plenty of cooking equipment if you want to eat in. It's clean and well maintained
The pool is fabulous for chilling or playing around in
Some of the other villas on the complex had their pools visible from the road as you walked/drove past but this pool is private
3 generations stayed here during this trip and everyone was very happy. Would definitely book this villa again
This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
This property was very well-kept, very clean and nicely decorated. We had a family reunion, 4 families from all over the U.S. The house felt like home. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinners at home. We especially liked the holiday decorations that were waiting for us. We felt very safe in the community and our neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The management company was very responsive to our requests. It was an easy drive to the Disney theme parks. Restaurants and shopping were also easy to reach.
Very nice home for large families or a golf get away
Wow what an amazingly beautiful home. The owners were extremely helpful prior to our arrival answering all of my anxious traveller questions.! Also freely recommending great restaurants and lots of useful holiday tips. The home was not as described,it was so much better! It felt like home as soon as we stepped inside,so spacious,immaculately clean,furnished with great care and the most comfortable beds we have ever ever slept in! And wardrobes that were just like Narnia! Lots of fresh bath and pool towels. A huge washing machine and tumble dryer that we put to good use. The pool was a welcome treat at the end of our 12 hour park days! The location was perfect. The Emerald estate and villa was like a little oasis of lovliness. It took only 10 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom entrance. We were so close to the attractions that it really wasn't an issue to pop home throughout the day. We would return to this beautiful villa in a heart beat. Cannot recommend tit highly enough. It was a pleasure to share this home & it made for a very happy family holiday.
The property was so spacious that our extended family of 12 had no problem all staying there together. We had plenty of towels and bedding. The heated pool and whirlpool were wonderful and there were even some blow up toys for the pool. We loved the screened in area; and the safety gates and the alarm system helped to make this a very relaxing place for us to stay with the kids. The appliances and some of the furniture were a little outdated, but we aren't fancy people so it worked fine for us. If we have the need for a large rental home in the future, we would definitely consider staying here again.
Stayed for three weeks in this villa. Great size for our family. Bedrooms huge with super storage. Kitchen equipped with absolutely everything that you could possible think of and more. Plenty of space around the pool for laying out or eating outside. Huge washer and dryer were excellent - we went home with clean clothes! Lots of bath and pool towels to use. Emerald island comes highly recommended. It is in an excellent position for the parks, nearby restaurants and supermarkets. It is absolutely pristine and gated, so we felt very safe.
Bill, the owner, was excellent to deal with. He replied to all my queries very quickly and offered accurate advice. He also happily arranged a late check out for us - thank you.
We would return to the property but felt that the cleaning could have been more thorough - although the main areas, bed linen, bathrooms etc were surface clean, we felt that the place was in need of a deep clean as there was dust on the skirting board behind the doors, the larder door handles were dirty and sticky, the front porch needed sweeping and there was thick fluff between the washer and dryer. Whilst the pool water was cleaned during our stay, the base and sides looked slightly 'stained'. We just bought the cleaning stuff and clean the house ourselves and we were more than happy. I don't feel this is down to the owner but feel the management who oversee the cleaners need to pay more attention to detail on his behalf.
We have stayed at Emerald Island many times, but this was the first time at this house. We were not disappointed. The house is lovely, it was clean and welcoming, and I was pleased to see that the cleaners had not spent hours twisting the towels into intricate shapes when they should be spending time cleaning. We have never stayed in a house so well equipped. It had more than enough mugs, plates, teaspoons, and towels. The pool is the nicest that we have seen, and the pool guy does an excellent job as it was positively sparkling, and a perfect temperature.The house is in a nice position, no houses immediately to the rear, so quite private. There are houses either side, but they were both empty while we were there. All in all, an excellent stay. One more thing, the management company are helpful and courteous. We look forward to staying here again, and have no hesitation in recommending this particular house.
Emerald Island is surrounded by a conservation area and encompasses over 300 acres with 11 heavily wooded acres right in the middle of the community.

Downtown Disney provides shops, restaurants and a multiplex cinema. Closer to home there are shops, a supermarket and many restaurants (to suit all tastes and budgets) all less than a mile from Emerald Island.
