About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Welcome to Pirate & 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.

The 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 Mickey's 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 for the first time pool COOLING (extra charge) for those hot Florida summers! Pool and spa heating are already included in posted rates.

Welcome!: Welcome to Pirate & Princess Palace! Our home is a Disney themed villa with swimming pool, spa, and games room, all within an easy 5 minute drive to Disney World! Located in the guard-gated resort community of Emerald Island, with club house and an abundance of amenities.

Every room is decorated with Disney magic in mind. The kids will love the Disney Princess Frozen and Pirates of the Caribbean 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.

Dining: 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 out. The kitchen dinette seats 5, and the main dining area seats 6 comfortably. Out on the covered lanai you'll find a gas barbecue and a comfy patio set that seats 6, for those looking to spend as much time as possible enjoying Florida's beautiful warm weather by dining poolside.

Relaxation And Entertainment: 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 cool 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 end-of-stay cleaning (for stays of 7 nights or more), pool and spa heating (heated to 85 F and 99 F respectively) and barbecue use (propane supplied by guests, if needed).

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 Busch Gardens. 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've used HomeAway and VRBO to find vacation rentals for our past visits to Orlando, FL, and Waikiki, HI. 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!

Shelley LaRose purchased this villa in 2009

Why Shelley LaRose chose Disney / Orlando

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 and fun family experience in our lives. While we were very impressed with the beauty and convenient location of Emerald Island Resort, we had no idea we'd be renting our own home the very next year!

What makes this villa 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!

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!

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.

This house has it all!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about this home! From the moment I inquired about this house to the day we arrived the owner, Shelley, was extremely helpful and responsive. My two kids loved the Disney themed room and had fun searching for the hidden Mickeys throughout the home. The house was very clean and had everything including umbrellas, coolers, pool toys and strollers. The washer and dryer are fairly new and it was nice to not return from vacation with a suitcase of laundry. The pool was clean and the lights made night swimming so much fun! My daughter keeps talking about this house and how badly she wants to return! The other day she told me that when she's older she's going to try to buy the house we rented in Florida because she Loves it! Also, the Emerald Island Resort is in a great location anf felt very safe. We hope to return soon!

Perfect for the Disney lover, both young and old

  • 5 of 5

Shelley's Pirate and Princess Palace is one of a Kind in the Orlando area. It's so great, I hesitate to give it rave reviews so others don't book it up and we'll be able to stay again!

This house is perfect for a vacation for grandparents, parents, and children. Toys in the childrens' rooms isa great touch to keep the kids occupied during down time. The themed masters are elegantly done and remind vacationers of their love for Disney but In a mature style.

Every need has been considered and covered by Shelley. From books to read by the pool, to recommendations for takeout, to strollers, to themed pool towels, she's got it covered.

We even got to enjoy her Mickey Christmas tree in December.

Probably the best part of the Palace of s Shelley, who makes herself available and invested in the stay of each of her guests. We had a few speed bumps when we first arrived that were immediately addressed and resolved (thus not deserving recognition).

My family so enjoyed Shelley's home that we've already booked another visit!

Car: recommended

Pirate & Princess Palace is close to Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World, and numerous outlet shopping malls with top name brands. World class golf courses abound, and the coastal beaches are just over an hour's drive. Busch Gardens is about an hour and 15 minutes away. Kennedy Space Center is not much further and an educational wonder. Family-friendly restaurants are plenty and a good value for your vacation dollar.
