Disney / Orlando Townhome Rental Photos and Description

townhome, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 7

SUMMER SPECIAL.. PLEASE INQUIRE WITH THE OWNER. RATED 5 STARS. 5 MINUTES FROM DISNEY. The accommodation is over 1300 square feet. The townhouse offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs and a charming downstairs half bath. There is a queen size bed in the second bedroom and our kids room (Minnie and Mickey mouse) has a new bunk bed with a trundle bed ( 3 beds total). Maximum of 4 adults and 3 kids allowed.

There is a very spacious open plan living area and clean modern kitchen breakfast bar for sociable mornings! There is a nice covered terrace in the back that overlooks the large community backyard which enables you to keep an eye on the kids when playing outside. There is a balcony upstairs off the master bedroom which also has an ensuite private bathroom.

This townhouse is fully furnished, including all appliances including microwave, refrigerator, range, dishwasher, flat screens TV in every bedrooms and the living room, DVD players, Playstation 3 with movies and games, all linens including towels, beach/pool towels, pillows, bed sheets, and duvets. Also included is all eating and cooking ware. There is a full-size washer and dryer in the laundry room inside the townhouse. We also purchased brand new pack and play baby bassinet, a high chair and an upstair gate to accommodate families with babies and a portable bedrail for the little ones. Dining room table can accommodate 6 persons comfortably. WiFi free to our guests. We have a wireless phone and HD cable tv with HBO’s network. We also provide a Hotel standard, large safe to keep valuables away during your stay. We feature the latest technology in electronic door lock, so no keys to carry just your own personal door code. All you need to pack is your clothes and a toothbrush.

There is a pool 30 feet away, across the street with all services such as changing rooms, bathrooms and Jacuzzi. This pool is a lot quieter than the main pool at the clubhouse. This Villa is located close enough to the amenities for convenience, but far enough away for relaxing quietly on the balcony or a good night's sleep.

Emerald Island Resort is located in the middle of a preservation and has unique dolphins water fountains, dazzling landscaping, lakes and palm trees. Amongst the amenities are nature trails for jogging and biking through the community’s natural woodland setting, volleyball, tennis and basketball courts; playground, two heated pools, Tiki bar, massage, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center, cyber café and arcade. This location has access to fishing at either of our lakes, free of charge or by a nominal fee. Friday is Karaoke Night by the pool; enjoy the music while sipping on a drink.

The location is superb as it is secluded from the hustle and bustle yet being just off the 192W where all the best shops and restaurants are found.

Within a 5 minutes drive you will find several golf courses, miniature golf, supermarket, liquor store and shopping area. Within a 10 minutes drive you will find several restaurants, horseback riding, helicopter rides, as well as the beautiful historic town of Celebration, which is a must see. Only 5 min from Disney, 20 mins from Sea World and 25 mins from Universal and 10 minutes from the Orlando Prime Outlet Mall. This location allows you to take advantage of all that the Orlando area has to offer. The local restaurants range from 'Kid Friendly' to adult dining. Need a day off from all of the excitement? One hour away is the Beach (East coast or West coast). Only one hour on RT4 and you could be at the Hard Rock Casino (Las Vegas style gambling). Make your vacation memorable, visit, enjoy, but most of all be comfortable. The new attraction park LegoLand is located 55 minutes away.

The staff at the Concierge Desk will be happy to help you with your vacation needs, such as information and directions to restaurants and golf courses, discount coupons and park tickets, as well as transportation.

I am confident that you will have a vacation experience that will exceed your expectations.

Our rates are competitive, and reflect the quality of our home. Our home is very clean and well cared for by a small, family-owned management company that takes great pride in their work.

Since my family uses the home frequently, I am looking for guests that will treat my home as their own and return again-and-again.

Keywords: relaxing, serene, quiet, townhome, heaven, Disney, Kissimmee, Emerald.

Great Location, good size

  • 4 of 5

Great place for our family of four!

The Emerald Island Resort is very well maintained. Access to the resort and to the house were very smooth. We received all the information well in advance.

House was clean and exactly as the pictures showed. The area is extremely quiet. We never heard the neighbors!

The pool is literally across the street from the house. They are a lot of pool toys available in the house.

It is very close to Disney World parks. Animal Kingdom is not even 10 minutes away, while Magic Kingdom is less than 20 minutes away. You can't ask for a better location if you want to visit the parks without staying on site.

The only minor issues were: water pressure was a bit low in the showers upstairs and the air conditioning was not powerful enough to keep the upstairs bedrooms cool. But there were fans in every bedroom so it wasn't too bad.

Check-out was also very smooth, and security deposit was returned very quickly.

All in all, excellent place to stay for the price! Would certainly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your inquiry. We do our best to make sure that our guests feel at home. This is why we have installed a brand new AC last year with a capacity of 5 tons which is usually plenty for the size of our house. We will check the ceiling vents to make sure that they are properly open. In the past, guests have been closing them because it was too cold. Then it gets too hot for the next guests. For the water pressure, when you mention upstairs, I am not sure which bathroom you are refering too. In the past, the water pressure was geat in the Mickey's bathroom but, we had issues with the cold pressure in the master bedroom. Because customer service is our priority, we had a plumber to look it up right away to check it out. He told us that it was fixed now. We will recheck it again. Thank you for choosing our villa. We hope to have you back as guests in the future.

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly as described! It is very close to Disney and using the shortcut from there you avoid a lot of traffic. I would definitely stay here again and the place is exactly as described. This place was very clean and check-in was hassle free and very quick. My daughter loved the Mickey room and she has talked about it every night when going to bed since we left!

We took a spur of the moment trip here, my wife 2 young children sister and mother fit extremely comfortably in the townhome, the owners worked quickly and efficiently... if the property is available next year for our trip we will be a returning customer for certain. The home was clean much larger than I imagined... a great place for families
