This villa is everything you could possibly wish for when traveling to Kissimmee. Not far from the airport and within minutes from Disney the location is perfect. The serene and quiet community of Emerald island is not only well equipped within its own gates, it is also close to many shops and local attractions. The villa occupies up to 12 people with 5 bedrooms and a queen EZ Bed air mattress. Kids will be well entertained with the pool and games room whilst the adults can chill out in the jacuzzi or just lay back and soak up the sun in the sunshine state.
This home in which we spent time in with family and friends was just wonderful. Cleanliness is something that I really look for when staying in a vacation spot and I must say that I/we were very satisfied with the cleanliness of this vacation home. The overall experience was just wonderful.
This villa was beautiful in the perfect location and community. This villa was perfect for my family. The children enjoyed the pool and game room! The only problem I encountered was the wifi, but it was corrected immediately! The cleaning company need to do a little more dusting. My family and I will definitely rent this villa again!
We have just returned from two weeks in this villa. It is in a great location and close to all attractions. the villa is well equipped and there was nothing we needed for. The pool is great and the addition of hot tub was used frequently by us. The pool is in a great position - mostly shaded up until about half ten in the morning (with a nice section of sun down one side in which I could put my sun bed) which was handy for the kids morning swims. The remainder of the day the whole pool area stays in the sun (something I hadn't considered with previous rentals where we had no sun at all on the pool area) which was a major positive to this villa.
Inside the villa has a great master bedroom downstairs (gutted as we had to give this room to the grandparents) with a massive bathroom. Upstairs 3 bedrooms. Lighting was slightly lacking upstairs but this seems quite common in Florida villas.
The villa decoration is really nicely thought out with lots of lovely ornaments and furnishings. Garage converted to a games room with pool table and air hockey was a great bonus.
I really only have one criticism of this villa and that is the cleanliness. Don't get me wrong it was not offensive and I didn't have the urge to get the marigolds on, but it just felt that the villa was overdue a deep clean and was not cleaned to the best standard it could have been. Examples were drawers that had clothes tags left in them, under beds lost toys and sweet wrappers, under furniture food debris, an old sock down the side of the kids bed, oh and quite a few bodily hairs remaining on the bathroom floor upstairs. I think the management company need to be given a talking to and this is the reason I make the comment here. A change in management company / cleaning company would make this villa a dream place to stay in.
As for the owner he has been helpful and responsive throughout the whole process. We had a slight issue with wifi details provided and he checked in that this had been resolved by management company. In addition when requested he allowed us to check out later on our last day - this was much appreciated.
In summary, we have been 4 times to Orlando and stayed in different villas each occasion. I would book this villa again in a flash so long as I knew the cleaning had been addressed. I give 5 stars as the villa itself is perfect and I am sure the cleaning can be addressed easily.
Entering the house it has a clean, well-maintained and inviting feel. The backyard swimming pool and jacuzzi was awesome. The only concern I had on the 1st evening of arriving was poor lighting in the kitchen. We called next morning and reported the kitchen overhead light bulbs were out. Someone came right away and change the lightbulb. The bulbs were bright for that day then they became very dim the 2nd night & remaining two days of our 4 night 5 days trip. The problem seems to be in the light fixture and not the lightbulb. The longer we were there the less we noticed the kitchen overhead light was out. We had so much fun on our trip we forgot to call while we were there and let them know the light was still out. We made the call once we got home and I'm sure they will fix the kitchen ceiling light really soon.
Unfortunately on arrival we were sorely disappointed on the cleanliness of the property. We had to go out straight away and buy cleaning products and start cleaning on the first day of our holiday. It also had quite a few cockroaches which we spent our time removing. We chose this villa and were quite happy to pay a lot of money for it based on what it looked like from the pictures on the website and reviews, sadly i could not recommend this villa to anyone going there. We have stayed on Emerald island before in a different villa and loved it and how clean it was on arrival and how well maintained it was, but this villa had lots of stains on the walls, bed linen and furniture, the mirrors were badly smeared and did not make for a very comfortable stay. We were very glad to close the door on departure day to this villa. If we had not already paid in advance we would not have stayed here.
The house was clean and well cared for. The community is great. We had to make multiple calls to get the pool heat turned on. It was halfway thru our stay before it was working correctly and warm enough to use. The BBQ was clean but didn't work after attempting to use it we gave up and cooked on the stove.called management but they dont fix the grill told us to call another company.Owner refused to issue a refund for grill and pool heat . We've stayed in emerald island multiple times. This was our least favorite experience.
We were a little disappointed with this visit for a few things.
1) The pool was to be heated and was not turned on until two days after our arrival.
1a) The light was out in the hot tube and and was not replaced until two days after our arrival.
2) There were no towels or hand towels in the facility and we had to call the rental agency to have them delivered.
3) The WIFI was not accessible upon arrival and we called to get access code. We were given the wrong code by the rental agency. One of my young guest figured out how to find it after a few hours the next day after our arrival.
The owner is great to work with and we feel the rental agency should pay closer attention to details.
