Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from a fabulous fortnight in Simba's Pride. A return visit for us we had none of those pre villa jitters about whether or not we would like the villa! In fact part of the holiday excitement was that we were in fact going back to such an amazing villa. For anyone reading this you may want to see my previous review 'July 12'. Since that was 4 years ago I thought it might be helpful for anyone looking to book this villa to give an update on this visit.

Surely one of the more important factors in deciding "which villa"? Is location - well the luxury, gated community of Emerald Island resort is so close to Disney property that you can hear the park's fireworks at night. You simply exit the resort, turn right and very soon you are making your way along the so called 'shortcut road to Disney' For us, the sheer close proximity to the parks is very important in our trip planning as we would rather spend precious holiday time actually in the parks rather than queuing in traffic to get there - so in this respect Simba's Pride gets a huge tick. A welcome perk this time regarding entering the resort, was that we had the option of paying a fully refundable $10 deposit and would be given a pass that allowed us to use the 'Dolphin' lane when entering, thus avoiding any potential hold up behind vehicles perhaps checking -in, or asking the security guard questions etc. This was a great service, the resort office took some details from our

selves on check-in, we handed over the refundable $10, were given the pass which we simply held against the reader at the barrier each time we entered the resort and that was it, another time saver- fantastic. We had a 'Florida first -timer' with us this trip (youngest daughter's boyfriend), so we were eager to show him just how wonderful the villa actually is. It was lovely for us to see the sheer appreciation and wonder on his face as he took in the delights of Simba's Pride. I know I went into great detail on my last review of this amazing villa, but I just really cannot get across just how beautifully furnished this home is. We have been travelling to Florida for many years and I can confidently say this is the most luxurious, well appointed villa we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail in providing anything a family or group could ever need or want in a holiday home is superb but not only that everything is of a superior standard, is perfectly maintained, clean,

comfortable, and stylish.
