About The Owner

We came from Canada and settled in New York. The sunshine Florida is our favorite vacation place. Not only for my 2 kids, but for me and the grandparents too. Among all resorts, Emerald Island is my favorite due to its elegance, convenience and very nice neighbors. Waited for a long time and finally bought this dream home ... hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had wonderful time there, thank you! My mom enjoyed her 82 year birthday so much. We have been to many homes and we feel the layout of this home makes everything well planned out and the interior design flatters it. Also your house is very clean and well supplied.

a wonderful find!!

  • 5 of 5

I searched for many hours before finding this house and it was absolutely worth the effort! The #1 thing I loved is Helen -- she is a total delight. Responsive, thoughtful - she clearly wants you to have a great stay in her home. The house is really roomy and comfortable, and very clean. With Helen's permission, we hosted 36 adults at a family reunion one day and it did not feel crowded. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and basic cooking equipment, in addition to 2 coffee makers, a blender, microwave, toaster and toaster oven. Icemaker did not work, but if you buy a bag of ice and fill it, the dispenser on the door works fine. We enjoyed the BBQ grill (we did have to buy propane) Washer and dryer came in handy. Lots of towels available for use. The outdoor seating area is large and comfortable. The covered lanai is large and completely protected from rain and direct sunlight. The pool is not large, but was fine for 5 "floating around" adults -- we definitely enjoyed it in the early mornings and it is quite private except on one side. The young adults in our group loved the pool table. Indoor furnishings show some wear, but that actually made us more comfortable -- it felt like we were at home! Several of the beds have pillowtop mattresses which were very comfortable (but caution with elderly visitors as they are very high). Bed linens were good quality. We did have some issues with car parking for our guests, but resolved satisfactorily after a few calls to the security desk and for most renters, this would not be an issue. The resort itself is very nice and well maintained. Easy drive to Magic Kingdom - about 15 mins each way, so easy drop off/pick up when the older members of our party were too tired to spend the entire day at the park. Received my full security deposit back within a week. Everyone who attended the reunion thought the house was perfect -- all 36 of us would definitely recommend this house!!

Great golf trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we were looking for - 8 guys, 8 bedrooms, very nice gated community. The location was great - close enough to get to all the places we needed to get to, but far enough from the main road that you never heard traffic. All the guys agreed that renting a house and being able to hang out together well into the night was MUCH better than renting 8 hotels rooms. And, it was considerably cheaper than renting all those rooms. Finally, communication with Helen, the owner, was great. She was very responsive to our emails, and she and her management team gave us plenty of information up front about the property. The ground rules were pretty simple, and the whole experience was very hassle-free. We look forward to renting a house for next year's golf trip - hopefully, the calendar will work out so that Helen's house is available again.

Youth Group Competition Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our youth group consisting of 6 adults and 12 teens/kids stayed here during a weeklong competition. It was wonderful. To start with, Helen, the owner was very kind and quick with her responses. She was very easy to contact and answered all our questions in a timely manner and thoroughly. Secondly, the house was just flat out nice. It was perfect for our needs. It was clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The pool was perfect and the kids loved playing in it. We were able to go to Disney one day and it only took about 8 minutes with traffic to get there. Plus, it is only a little over an hour to the beach. Finally, I feel I must say this: if you have a trailer it cannot stay on the property. With 18 people it was necessary for us to have one and we were unaware that it would not be able to stay in the driveway. The manager of the resort was very accommodating and helped us find a place to keep it, so it wasn't a big deal. Just something you may want to consider. I would highly recommend this home and would definitely stay here again. Great memories were made.

Family Vacation

My Husband and I brought our three children, their spouses, and our eight grandchildren for a Disney World vacation. This home was PERFECT!! and helped us thoroughly enjoy our stay in Florida. The home was very comfortable, spacious, and well kept. Everyone from the one year old to the sixty-three year old was impressed with the home. I would DEFINITELY rent this home again!

Multipe family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Helen,

I just wanted to thank you very much for renting out your home to us for our Disney/Universal Vacation last week. We had an amazing stay. We did clean the grill as requested and did all the towels except for those used that morning. The conveniences your home provided were great. We enjoyed being able to cook and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and outdoor seating. The kids loved it as well! and we felt so much better with the pool fence being there.

Thank you very much
