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.

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 Villa in 2009
Why Shelley LaRose chose Four Corners
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 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, and a big part of why we've been renting our home for over 8 years!

Great Home, Attentive Owners!
The Pirate and Princess Palace was a fabulous home, offering all the amenities we were looking for in a Disney vacation home. My two boys (5 and 2) loved the themed rooms, particularly the Star Wars "control panel" bedroom and the Toy Story bathroom. The decorative detail was really impressive, as there were several small touches that really stood out (hidden Mickeys, outlet covers, lamps/nightlights, etc.) The pool was a huge hit, my boys loved the colored lights for evening swims. The beds were all very comfortable, everything was well-stocked. Having the availability of a highchair and pack-and-play came in very handy, helped keep the packing to a minimum.
Shelley was extremely attentive and responsive throughout the process, answering any questions promptly and providing valuable information about the house/neighborhood and the surrounding area. We've done this particular trip 4 times now, and this was easily the best experience we've had, both in the house itself and the interaction with Shelley. I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and we will look to stay here again on our next trip.
Oh my goodness, what a generous review! Thank you so much! I didn't realize you've visited the area 4 times, so what a great compliment! I have to admit it's wonderful guests like yourselves that makes it easy! Thank you for taking such good care of our home. Your son's forgotten Pooh Bear is on his way back home! I think he enjoyed visiting his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood so he decided to stay a bit longer!
Perfect home for our Disney vacation!
We loved everything about this home! It had all the amenities that we were looking for in a vacation rental and it was close to Disney. We especially enjoyed the themed bedrooms, pool, and game room. Shelley was so easy to work with and provided us with so many suggestions and tips about restaurants, etc. since it was our first time vacationing in the area. This house will definitely be our top choice for future vacations to the Orlando area!!
Shelley was so easy to work with!!! Questions before & during rental were promptly answered. Prompt return of security deposit. Comfortable beds. Very kid friendly 2 1/2 year old granddaughter loved the princess room from the snowflake night light to the stick on snowflakes, the toys, the dress up clothes. Stroller, stepstool(in kids bathroom) & high chair used. Loved the outlet covers(& the extras in the kitchen drawer) for the 15 mo old (for our piece of mind). Pool & spa were great. Loved that the 2 king rooms were separated for us grandparents from my sons family. Loved that there was a safe in the home so very easy to use with our own code. Convenient keyless entry (no key to lose). Nice playgrounds. Easy access card for entry into resort. Enjoyed walking in the resort in the mornings & evenings. Thanks again for sharing your home.
Hello Linda! Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review! I love hearing about how much kids enjoy their bedrooms, so thank you for sharing! I agree that a resort community is a beautiful place to enjoy a walk to decompress from the busy parks! I hope to have the opportunity to host your family again soon.
Perfect family home for a Disney vacation
The Pirate and Princess Palace offered all of the amenities my family was looking for in staying off-site from the Disney Resort. The home is well laid out in design and contains a fabulous decor for Disney travelers. My family mostly enjoyed the private pool and hot tub, as well as the game room in the garage. The neighborhood is well maintained in a quiet setting and I would recommend this to anybody seeking a private getaway from the Disney Resort. Finally, Shelley was easily accessible, a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful in providing the necessary information to make our stay easy and enjoyable.
Thank you so much for the kind review! Your family was wonderful to host! I'm glad you found the process of renting our home easy. I know planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming, so it's nice to hear I was able to help!
Great villa, comfortable beds, beautiful bedroom decoration, good location, brilliant holiday!
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!
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
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!
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. Other Activities: sand volleyball on-site
