About Clyde

My wife Amanda and I purchased our Disney Forest Home at Emerald Island, Kissimmee to enjoy the wonders of Disney with our now four young boys. I am a Canadian Chartered Accountant and my wife is an Insurance Underwriter. Family time is important to us with our children and we hope that those that rent our property will treasure the memories of their Disney family vacations as we do. We take pride in our property ownership and are constantly upgrading the features in our house to create an even greater vacation experience for our guests.

Clyde purchased this house in 2010

Why Clyde chose Disney / Orlando

We selected Emerald Island for ownership as we preferred a gated and guarded community for safety issues with very close proximity to the Disney resort parks and local Orlando attractions. We wanted an environment where we felt we were on vacation and the luxury at Emerald Island provided exactly that. We have a very short walk to the Resort Clubhouse to enjoy a drink and snack at the community pool/sauna/spa, the nature walk is fabulous and peaceful, we love playing tennis, and the community is surrounded by water making additional development impossible to protect the exclusivity and privacy of the Emerald Island Resort.

What makes this house unique

Our property is unique to other vacation homes in the community as we back onto the conservation forest/nature walk. While other properties face the backyards of homes, have exposure to wind due to open space, or do not have day long sunlight, our backyard is peaceful and private with day long exposure to the sun so you really can relax when taking a swim or enjoying the upgraded Whirlpool Jacuzzi jet spa. Our house has undergone a full painting, replacement of carpet in all common areas with tile or laminate flooring, new leather furniture, new area rugs, two (2) new HD LCD Big Screen TVs one with Blu-Ray player and the other with DVD player, new kitchen furniture, new linnens & towels, new coffee table set, new kitchen small appliances, new kitchen stainless steel appliances; new home pictures and decorations, new pool aluminum patio furniture & pool accessories, new automated pool & spa heater, new AC, and updated landscaping and new outdoor propane BBQ. The AC is a new 4 Ton A/C unit to properly cool the home and new Pool/Spa Heater. Our guests can also enjoy WIFI Internet and Unlimited Long Distance calls to the USA and Canada to keep in touch with relatives or your business affairs at home. Our floor plan offers 1,935 square feet of living space on a single level and with no stairs, improves access for elderly, handicapped, wheelchair guests and provides for a cooler living environment. Our home has only tile and laminate flooring with no carpet in living areas. We are comitted to keepying our home clean and updated for the full enjoyment of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great experience in your rental. Our expectations were absolutely met. Our family enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub, the game tables, the bedrooms, and the comfortable setting. We've stayed in Kissimmee and Davenport in previous years, and this was our favorite based on the quality of the home and its location.

...A welcome end to each day!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent vacation to the Orlando area was memorable. Each day was full of opportunities for our family to experience and enjoy. The Disney Forest Vacation Home was a welcome end to each day. The home was clean, well equipped, and spacious. Our family of five adults had more than enough room to rest privately in very comfortable bedrooms. The multiple living areas provided plenty of seating for everyone as well. While we were there we enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, daily. The neighborhood was quiet and beautifully landscaped. We felt safe there. This home was a good fit for our family. The communication with the property owner was fast and courteous. Everything was delivered as expected per our rental agreement. We completely enjoyed it.

Beautifully decorated home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented multiple homes in this same neighborhood for a big wedding/family reunion. "Disney Forest Home" is by far the best. The house is beautifully decorated. We felt it the moment we stepped in. Since we've rented multiple units (from other owners of course), this house is the most well equipped one. The house is only a couple minutes from Disney parks and 30 minutes from Universal Studio.

I highly recommend this house to anyone!

Close To Disney & Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Disney Forest Home! The kids all had their own space (6 kids) and we loved the amenities! The pool, the pool table, air hockey, ping pong, and lots of movies and games for the kids to watch and play on the tv. Very clean! Would recommend to anyone!

Disney Fan

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our Disney vacation. Staying in a house is so much more economical than staying on property especially when you are traveling with a group. My family including my 2 year old grandson stayed for a week in the Disney Forest Home. The home was as advertised, clean and well equipped with everything you would need. It was convenient to shopping and restaurants and a short drive to the parks. It was so nice to come back for a long day at Disney and take a swim or soak in the hot tub. I would definitely choose this property again.

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The Disney Forest Home is what my house would be like if I lived here. It has more than enough room, all the things you need without bringing them from home - and all withing minutes of the Magic Kingdom. This was our third year renting this property and will be the one I will attempt to secure the next time we want to come down.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our recent Disney vacation. The gated community was beautiful. The home was spacious, we really enjoyed having the two living areas. The home was close to numerous restaurants, shops and the Disney parks. We rent vacation homes several times a year and this home was by far the best equipped and nicest one we have stayed at in a long time.
