About The Owner

After taking an early retirement from television, I acquired my NYS Real Estate license and now practice in Manhattan, NYC. Along with my advertising and marketing responsibilities for the Emerald Star, I care for my Mother and when I can, take in foreign travel, which I adore.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Disney / Orlando

Our home has been appointed with the finest furnishings and accessories, because that is the way my business partner, Lenore and I insist upon when we rent homes all over the world. We are very particular and we are constantly upgrading our home and making sure it is as elegant as we say it is - that's why it an award-winning home!

What makes this villa unique

It's so close to Disney you can hear the fireworks from out lanai. The best thing besides your surroundings at the home, is that you can get to Disney on a back road and avoid traffic, and we are so close you can bring the baby home for a nap during the day and go back at night to SEE the fireworks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Katherine,

Words cannot express the enjoyable relaxed time we had your home. The minute we walked through the door we knew we were at home. We have rented timeshares in the past and this is honestly the first time we were home away from home. The kitchen was fully furnished from the dinner ware, the pots and pans and not to mention the waffle iron. We enjoyed waffles for breakfast every morning J. Televisions in every room is a definite plus. And we were all able to sit at the table together for Thanksgiving dinner. I can tell that you are a warm caring person. It should in the decorating of your home. Oh and I almost forgot the game room. When the guys were not watching sports on TV they took over the game room. That kept them out of our hair when we went to the outlet mall. We were not being nag about when are we going back home. LOL Again I want to thank you for opening up your home to me and my family. I will keep you in my favorite contacts so that when we are planning a trip to Orlando again we have the hook up now and know who to call. We will definitely be doing business with you again. Thanks so much!

Have a Blessed and Happy Holidays

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The bedding was very nice. Two things in particular really appealed to us: the game room in the garage was fantastic for the kids, and the pool water was very warm. We have rented homes before that had pools and often had issues with cold water or things malfunctioning. This house was fantastic. We had 2 large families staying - a total of 13 people, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Also, it has a very convenient location if you are going to Disney or any parks in Kissimmee. The development the house is in is also very nice with lots of things to do if you don't feel like fighting the crowds. Overall, I would rate my experience at this house very high and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any of my friends and family.

Amazing Emerald Star home away from home vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was our eight year at the Emerald Star . We love everything about it. Most of all the owners they are always so helpful and quick to solve any questions or concerns. The house is beautiful and the location of the house is perfect . The pool is in the sun and in the shade when you want either. Our grandchildren love the little park that's right next to the house . Its perfect and we can't wait to go back again next year!!!! We are looking forward to our grandchildren to be of age to go to Disney because it is all so close to the house just minutes away plus restaurants, golfing and shopping etc....... You will not be sorry if you stay at this home away from home. Everything you need is there for you to have fun busy or relaxed vacation !!!!!

Lovely, spacious and convenient to Disney

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the community we were greeted with friendly service. The property was very beautiful, well lit and I had a 24 hour days security presence at the gate house . When we picked up our parking passes at the clubhouse we receive very clear instructions to our location and more informed of the daily activities and amenities available in the community . We found the house easily, it was late when we arrived and it was nice to have motion detector lights come on as we approached the house. The keyless entry system is very smart as well.

The house was fresh, well appointed, smartly decorated and well lit on arrival. The pool was ready for use and the hot tub was ready!! There is plenty of room to spread out for the entire family in this house. The games room was a great addition to the update on this property. The house is also located next to a great little playground for the little ones to entertain themselves if they don't want to play in the pool😃. Having this location is a great find.

I would and will stay again.

I love staying at The Emerald Star.

Each time I go to Disney I stay at The Emerald Star! It is a lovely, beautifully decorated and well appointed rental. I love each theme room and would sleep in each, if given the chance. The close proximity to the park is wonderful.

I stayed at the Emerald Star twice and each time it gets better and better. I love the beauty of the accommodations - each room is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully appointed. You really thought of everything! Thank you for your care and attention to detail.

We loved the location and close proximity to Disney and shops.

I recommend the Emerald Star whenever someone tells me they are planning a vacation in Florida.
