About Douglas Ebdon

We bought our home at Emerald Island following a wonderful family holiday to celebrate my wife, Brenda's, 60th birthday. After much searching we eventually purchased Emerald Island Haven, which is in the same road as the house we rented for the holiday!! We are retired and use the house ourselves, as do our family, on several occasions each year.

Douglas Ebdon purchased this villa in 2008

Why Douglas Ebdon chose Disney / Orlando

The house has everything and that includes a large grass area immediately behind it for safe play. The nearest house behind us is 100 yards away. The resort is always immaculately presented and the Clubhouse staff are extremely helpful.

What makes this villa unique

Space, quiet and a very short drive to all the main attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first family holiday in a private villa – and certainly will not be our last! We will have no hesitation in returning.

Our children 11, 8 and 3 were blown away with the pool area, which was private enough for even me to don my bikini!!

We had hours of fun in the games room too.

Spotless, well decorated, superbly located – we couldn’t have asked for more! The pictures don’t really enable you to gain a full appreciation of the place.

Many thanks

Until next time – Gill

EMERALD ISLAND HAVEN---Luxury 6 bedroom pool home 3 miles from Disney
average rating of 4.9 based on 12 reviews
Wake Forest, NC

Perfect fit for our large family group!

  • 5 of 5

This home met our large family's needs perfectly. We had 7 adults and 3 kids and everyone had plenty of room. The neighborhood is great and the kids loved the playground which is within walking distance. The owner and management company were very helpful in planning our trip and helping us once we were there. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided in the home. The proximity to the Disney Parks is a huge plus. I couldn't believe how quickly we reached the parks each morning. We'd stay here again for sure!

Great home - great location

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generational family spent 4 nights at this great home. We chose this home based on the location being so close to Disney. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The pool was clean. We have stayed at Emerald Isle Resort many times - and this is the only home we will rent again. Douglas was very easy to work with - very responsive.

Thanks for the great home away from home.

Emerald Island Haven was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, meticulously kept home! The home comfortably fit the four families who stayed here, although there was plenty of room for others. We did not feel crowded. Our host provided everything we needed! We enjoyed the heated pool several times, and the game room was a special addition to our fun. We would love to stay in this house again next year! Thank you, Mr. Ebdon!

Heavanly at the Haven

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay at Emerald Island Haven was heavenly, our party of 9 ranged from 13y/o to 66y/o everyone was very comfortable, entertained and full of smiles. The game room and heated pool, MAJOR assets. The home is well appointed and maintained. We had one small request of the rental company which was handled very timely. Thanks to Douglas for all the information provided prior to arrival. The new fast past is a great upgrade for the resort. We plan to return next November, hopefully this home will accommodate our party. Thanks

Beautiful and spcaious house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs. It was spacious and beautifully presented, I loved the decor, exactly how it looked on the website!! It has everything you need, the kitchen is well stocked with delph, cutlery, utensils, etc... And there is no shortage of towels, blankets or spare sheets.

We did have one problem with the pool heater while we were there, but this was fixed promptly by the maintenance company and I also got an e-mail from the owner with an explanation of the problem, so I have to say the customer service was second to none.

The location was excellent so close to Disney. There are plenty of restaurants - the Outback and the Olive Garden being my personal favourites - and shops within a 5 min. drive, and it's not far from International Drive and the other parks. A perfect base for anywhere in Kissimmee/Orlando really. the furthest place we went was The Kennedy Space Centre which was still only a 1 hour drive.

I have stayed in the Emerald Island Resort a few times and i would definitively say this is the nicest of the houses I've stayed in, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone, it was so nice to have somewhere I felt comfortable and relaxed in while on holidays.

Situated only three miles from Disney, surrounded by a conservation area, Our house is within easy reach of all

the attractions in and around Orlando. Beaches and places

such as the Kennedy Space Centre are also only an hour away.

A visit to Celebration, particularly at Christmas time, will allow you to experience 'snow' and other festive activities, every day in December and is a delight in summer also.
