Our family of nine enjoyed the comfort of this large roomy home. The home was well maintained and clean. Had everything we needed. Lots of towels and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The Ice maker was still broken. Kids enjoyed the pool. Lots of privacy. Easy access to the highway and close to stores and restaurants .
We had a family of 12 stay for week of Christmas. First time being away from home for Christmas. It was plenty of room for everyone so we didn't feel crowded. The pool was a big hit with the children. We had 7 adults and 5 children ages 7 to 65.
Pros: Price. Large and great floor plan with the children being close together away from the adults. 4 en suites made it great for the adults. Pool, Jacuzzi and game room. Clean and comfortable beds. Plenty of washcloths and towels. Secure resort. Loved the fact that no one could get on the resort without a reservation or being invited. Close to several different kind of stores and restaurants. Close to Disney attractions and interstate. Friendly staff at the gate and welcome center.
Cons: Several lights needed bulbs so it was a little dark in some areas. Needed more cookware so had to go out and buy some mainly frying pans. Pool sticks needs replacing. Raccoons came and turned over trash every night. Took a few days to get pool heat but that was okay.
Overall, everyone enjoyed themselves because all the issues were minor. Would recommend to anyone with kids and older adults since it doesn't have any stairs. Everyone is still talking about this trip over a month later.
Extended family of 12 stayed Christmas Week to New Years. We have stayed in 5 other Emerald Island Resort homes over the last decade, so we are familiar with what an "A+ Executive Villa" should look like.
Unit was clean
One of the cheapest 6 bedroom units you can find in Emerald Island
Large, private lot, with great privacy on a cul de sac
Pool deck was large, and pool heat worked well
Walls are thick, and door locks work in the masters, so Mom and Dad can Nap in peace
No hot water on arrival fixed within 24 hours on a Holiday weekend. Good service.
Bedding has seen more then it's fair share of "Big" Disney visitors
Not a south facing pool, so no afternoon sun in the winter
Cookware thin, we left a new 12 inch nonstick skillet for future renters :)
Needs to have about 10 lightbulbs replaced in various fixtures, lamps, entrance, etc.
Big cockroach greeted us in the games room, so unit need to be treated more often
In summary, the unit has seen better days, but if you are looking for bang for your buck in a 6 bedroom, it would fit your needs.
