About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, Guard-Gated Villa Resort Community, Disney Themed Rooms

Welcome to Pirate and Princess Palace, a Disney-themed 4 bedroom, 3 bath villa with south-facing swimming pool, spa, Nintendo Wii, and games room, all within an easy 5 minute drive to Disney World! Located in the resort community of Emerald Island, just south of I-92 and Animal Kingdom Park. There is 24-hour guard-gated security, club house with a fitness center, sauna, arcade, community pool, and a poolside Tiki bar for when you need to unwind.

Disney-themed rooms means your family can be immersed in the magic all day, in the privacy of your own vacation home. For extra fun, there's even hidden Mickeys throughout! Best of all, the excitement and thrills of Disney World (entrance) is only 3 miles from your door.

Our home is child and baby friendly, smoke-free, pet-free, and offers FREE wireless Internet and long distance telephone calls to Canada and throughout the US. We are proud to offer pool COOLING (extra charge) for those hot Florida summers! Pool and spa heating is already included in posted rates.

Every room is decorated with Disney magic in mind. The kids will love the Disney Princess Frozen and Star Wars themed bedrooms, and you'll unwind in the exotic decor of the Aladdin themed bedroom, or the romantic Aristocats bedroom. The 2 master bedrooms both have king size, high-quality pillow top mattresses, and en-suite baths. They are situated on opposite sides of the house for privacy, which makes it ideal for 2 families or grandparents, to make it an extra special family vacation. The children share a 3rd bathroom, and is decorated in the ever-popular Toy Story theme and has walls that glow-in-the-dark.

Enjoy breakfast in the fully equipped Mickey kitchen, pack lunch for the day, and you'll still be in the parks faster than if you had to eat on resort property. The kitchen dinette seats 5, and the main dining area seats 6. Out on the covered lanai you'll find a gas barbecue and a patio set that seats 6, for those looking to spend as much time as possible enjoying Florida's beautiful warm weather by dining poolside.

After the parks, come home for a refreshing dip in the private pool, or soak up some sunshine on the loungers. Finish off your day by watching one of the many movies on the 42” plasma television or play the family-friendly games on the Nintendo Wii. Challenge the kids to some table tennis, air hockey, darts, or a Disney themed board game. Or head over to the clubhouse and watch the kids play with new friends in the pool while you sip a margarita at the poolside Tiki bar, perhaps making a few friendly acquaintances of your own. It's hard to run out of things to do!

*Home is child and baby-friendly. We provide a pack 'n play crib, highchair, booster seat, strollers (single & double), pool safety fence, life jackets, and outlet covers. There are no window blind cords in the bedrooms, and channels with adult content have been blocked from their TVs. Please supervise children.

Our rates includes pool and spa heating (heated to 84 F and 99 F respectively) and barbecue use (propane supplied by guests, if needed). End-of-stay cleaning fee is $95 plus tax. Note that we do not charge any extra booking fees. Any other fees are charged by this site, and not by the home owner.

Great villa, comfortable beds, beautiful bedroom decoration, good location, brilliant holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The pirate and princess palace is a lovely, comfortable and clean 4 bedroom villa with beautiful finishes to the bedrooms. The star wars and frozen kids rooms were particularly stunning. The house was well stocked with the essentials and plenty extras. The pool area and spa were lovely and inviting and the changing coloured lights in the pool at night were a real winner with the kids. The kids loved the games room also. The sheets on the beds were really soft and the mattresses very comfortable. There was good security in the house with a safe and house alarm. It is in a great location near shops and popular restaurants and a short drive to the Disney parks and outlet shopping malls. The owner Shelley was very attentive to our needs and really helped make our holiday special. Thank you Shelley!

Owner's Response: Hi Valerie, What a nice review! Thank you so much! I'm thrilled that you all had a very special holiday. It was my son's idea to get the coloured lights for the pool area and I'm so glad we did! The kids get such a kick out of night swimming while parents relax in the spa. Thank you again for choosing our home, I know that traveling from Ireland it was an extra-special vacation and it makes me happy to have played a small part in it.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a few different houses in Emerald Island, which we enjoy. This was the most well kept home and it felt just like being home. The effort that the owners have put into making every detail fun and fanciful for a vacation in that area is noticeable throughout the entire house. I would recommend this house to any family who wants a home away from home!

The home was clean and very accommodating for our family. We had a party of 10 which included 1 year old twins and the owner, Shelley, made sure we had everything we needed from play pens to a double stroller. The pool was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. We will definitely return.

Everything we could have needed was provided. The house and property were very clean and well maintained. The hidden Mickeys were fun to find, my kids especially loved the themed rooms and the costumes!! Shelley was extremely nice and made this rental experience easy and comfortable. I will recommend her home to my family and friends.

Everyone loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Florida with our 3 children, and my wife's parents. This was the first trip to Disney for our 3 kids, and this house could not have been more perfect. With two master suites, both my wife and I, as well as the in-laws had king sized beds, and en suite bathrooms. The Aristocat room is separated from the other 3 bedrooms, giving the grandparents a separate space of their own. The house was very clean, and the pool and spa were fantastic. Our kids would regularly ask if we could take a break from the Disney parks to go back to the house and swim. Having the ability to cook breakfast, and eat the occasional other meal either at the home or nearby restaurants, saved a ton of money.

I can't say enough good things about the owner Shelley. From the time I booked, she gave me so many helpful tips. She told us the best places to buy park tickets, gave tips on rental cars, and directions to and from everything. The house was equipped with so many extras that packing was a breeze. They had strollers, umbrellas, high chair, boosters, coolers, etc. And Shelley emailed a list of things to make sure not to forget and what not to pack because they already have there.

When we return we definitely plan to stay here again.

About Shelley LaRose

Our family of 4 (plus 1 cat) lives in a small town in Manitoba, Canada (about 2 hours north of Fargo, ND). Moving from the city to the country had been an interesting transition, but now we wouldn't have it any other way.

We love to travel, and Florida is our favourite destination! Our most-loved parks are Magic Kingdom, Islands of Adventure, and Discovery Cove. We also like to spend a day at Clearwater Beach (about 90 minutes west from our home) just to relax, play in the ocean, and pick up some fun souvenirs!

We purchased our own vacation home in 2009 to enjoy and share with other people who also love Orlando and all it has to offer!

My favourite thing to do when we visit our vacation home is read our guest book. I love reading our guests' comments, and especially love looking at the drawings and notes the children write! It makes me feel like our home helped make their vacation extra special. It's just the best feeling!

Shelley LaRose purchased this house in 2009

Why Shelley LaRose chose Kissimmee

We decided to purchase our own home in the Disney area after we rented a home to attend a wedding at Disney's Wedding Pavilion. We visited all the Disney parks and SeaWorld that visit, and we had the most amazing family experience. While we were impressed with the beauty and convenient location of Emerald Island Resort, we had no idea we'd be owners and renting our own home the very next year! Call it Disney love at first site!

What makes this house unique

Our home's check list was a long one. Our 'must-haves' included a south-facing pool, no rear neighbours, a covered lanai, a 24-hour guard-gated community, and be within minutes to the parks! It took over a year searching for accessories for the different theme rooms. I love it when our guests write to me after their stay saying how much fun they had staying in our home. It truly makes my day, and a big part of why we've been renting our home for over 8 years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house ROCKS! We loved having Christmas here. We are already planning to do this again next year. The extras in this house are amazing. She thought of everything. We never ran out of things to do!

Peace, Love, & Mickey!
