About the property

Detatched, 7 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16) private Pool, close to Theme Parks


Do you love Films and Rock music? Congratulations! You’ve discovered one of the most unusual luxury vacation homes anywhere. Our theme is 'The American Dream' and we've tastefully decorated to celebrate our favourite icons, from Heroes of Rock and Roll to Hollywood Stars. 7 bedrooms (sleeps 16) 4.5 bathrooms, South facing (sunny all day) with private Heated Pool and Jacuzzi, at the award winning Emerald Island Gated Resort, Kissimmee.

We're just a few minutes from Disney and very close to most of the famous Theme Parks and numerous Golf courses - you couldn't be better located! Our home is perfect for the larger family or smaller groups of families and friends sharing, and you'll love the unique Rock and Roll / Hollywood fun “vibe”

With over 4,200 square feet (including extended deck) and plenty of loungers and shades for sun worshippers, we've put TVs and DVDs in all the bedrooms. We have Full Air Conditioning, including the Games room where children of all ages will enjoy Air Hockey, Foosball, Table Tennis etc. Take full advantage of free International calls to phone home and tell your friends what a great time you’re having! We have Cable TV, Netflix, a vast open plan Family Room with 55' TV, DVD and Soundbar plus a library of over 100 DVD and Blu-Ray discs. Free Internet Broadband too – just bring your WiFi enabled laptop.

All linen and towels are provided and in the Laundry room you’ll find a Washer, Dryer, Hair Dryers and Ironing facilities. Each bedroom has it’s own unique theme, and includes two private Master en-suites with their own 40” Flatscreen Internet TV so you can surf the net from the comfort of your own bed – very cool!

Our themed bedrooms all have TV's, plus either DVD players or Netflix :

The Hollywood Suite with huge King size bed, plus private en-suite

The Rat Pack Suite with Queen size bed, plus private en-suite (See the Disney fireworks in the distance from this room in the evenings!)

The Superstar Suite with Queen size bed

The Guitar Hero Suite with Queen size bed

The Divas Boudoir with two Twin beds

The Cyber Zone with two Twin beds

Hogwarts Hideaway (Harry Potter themed room) - 4 Bunk beds

And for our youngest guests we have 2 Strollers, 2 Highchairs, 2 Portable Cribs, stair safety gates, intercom and patio door Pool safety alarms.

You'll love the extensively equipped Kitchen with its' own intimate Nook area (which usually turns into a social gathering place as well as an eating area) where you can watch the underwater pool light at night – Magical!

Dine in style in the formal Dining area, eat 'al fresco' round the Pool or just enjoy a well earned glass of wine in the heated Jacuzzi at midnight while you plan the next days’ outings. And after all the excitement of the day if you prefer some peace and quiet, just head for the privacy of the cosy lounge at the front of the house, away from all the action. You'll find amazing original portraits, a unique mural, fascinating pictures and incredible giant sculptures throughout the home.

We usually book a 7 day minimum from Saturday to Saturday, but sometimes in the low seasons a 4 day rental is OK.

Finally, we’re pleased to say that our low season rates apply for a full 8 months of the year - basically all the time except for Summer, Xmas / New Year, Easter & Thanksgiving!

Is this the most fun and unusual vacation home you could ever stay in?

Almost certainly.......

About Mark Dawson

Our “Hollywood Rock 'n Roll ” home is owned by myself, Mark Dawson and my wife Debbie, and we both live and work in London, England. I work in the Music Business and have played in bands and run a recording studio for more than 35 years (hence the musical theme!) and Debbie is an Antiques Trader specialising in Teddy Bears who is also currently studying for a Law Degree.

I first fell in love with America when I visited it as a teenager on a school trip, and we are very fortunate to have now realised a lifetimes’ ambition by owning our very own vacation home in Orlando. We’d like to share our love of Films and Rock music with our guests, and hope we can welcome you to our home!

Mark Dawson purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark Dawson chose Disney / Orlando

Emerald Island is a beautiful Gated Enclosure complete with Lakes and a Nature Trail, just 5 minutes from Disney and very close to the Theme Parks (Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Discovery Cove, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, etc) - you couldn't be in a better location. The nearby Highway 192 houses Restaurants of all types and we're located so centrally that you're right on top of just about anything you might need, from a Medieval Banquet to Wal Mart!

What makes this house unique

There are many beautiful houses in Orlando but we wanted to try and create a themed home with a difference. We chose a 'Hollywood / Rock and Roll' theme because it's unusual, it's luxurious and most of, it's a lot of fun! We have tastefully decorated with amazing giant sculptures, original paintings and rock 'n roll memorabilia - It's a most unusual home! We look forward to welcoming you as our guests and would love to hear from you if you have any comments or require any further information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing vacation and we loved your house. My sons hated leaving the pool. Thank you again. Everything was amazing!!

We all thank you,

A Beautiful House, Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We invited friends and family for our stay celebrating my wife's 40th birthday. We and all of our guests were so impressed with the beautiful accommodations and cleanliness. Mark and Debbie, the owners answered all of our many questions prior to our stay. I can't recommend this house enough. It was magical.

Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we wanted for a very enjoyable stay. We arrived late at night after a pretty exhausting trip and were able to immediately relax in the perfect temperature of the pool water for a while before we headed to bed. Plenty of towels, extra bed linens, comfortable beds, roomy house, all the kitchen utensils you could possibly need, More TV's than we could possibly use, tons of DVD's, fun game room, nice sized bathrooms, bedrooms and dining room. The only thing I would change, and this is a purely personal preference, is it would have been nice to have a pool table in the game room. There was a short period of time when we were unable to connect to WiFi but almost immediately after calling the management company someone was there to reset the router and it worked fine. The management company provided excellent customer service.

The property owners are very responsive and friendly. And I had my security deposit back within days of checking out.

I can't speak to the community's amenities because we did not take advantage of them, although it looks like there is plenty to do there. I will say that the arcade appeared to be smaller than I expected but, I may not have seen it all. I just glanced in while I was getting my gate card. It was very easy to check in and the staff is very friendly. The community is very clean and quiet. The next time I visit the Orlando area I will definitely book this home if it is available.
