Renting this wonderful house helped make our family vacation so enjoyable. The rooms are large, the pool and patio area are great, it is located in the upscale Emerald Island gated community, stores and restaurants are nearby and getting to and from Disney was so easy. The owner, Ms. Yan Li, was friendly and very helpful and we have shared our great experience with friends and hope to come back again.
Great set up for a group of 8 men on a golf vacation. Located close to courses and restaurants. Plenty of room, well stocked kitchen, clean, pool and hot tub worked great. No complaints at all. Will rent this house again. Yan is very quick to respond to emails, security deposit returned within 24 hours of checkout. Contact info is provided for a local maintenance person if any problems arise.
The house was a great size and the backyard was great. Yan was great with communication. Being a rental the place was a tad tired and could have been cleaned better but all in all a good experience.
I have just returned from a family vacation in Orlando where we stayed at this house. This property is very well located with only a 10 minute drive to the parks. It also provides easy access to the I-4, making trips east or west from Orlando simple.
The house was well appointed with everything we needed to make our stay extremely enjoyable. We loved the outdoor space and grill - we practically lived out there when home. The pool was a very inviting temperature and was more than big enough for all of us. Equally, the club house pool and facilities were very good.
Any questions we did have were very quickly answered by Yan and fully supported by her local manager, Dave.
Overall, this was a great rental experience and I would strongly recommend this property to any large group visiting the Orlando area.
The house was beautiful and had everything we needed for our stay. The pool area was nicely done and clean. We had a great time in the house and would rent it again if we come back to Florida in the future.
My family and i stayed at this house for one week. We stayed from august 6th to august 12th. This property is spacious, and great for large families. I went with 16 people, and we all fit comfortably. We had no problems with the house. If we were to go on vacation in Florida again, we would look for this property! Highly recommended.
The house was exactly as described. It was clean and accessible. Instructions for getting in the gate, into the house, etc. were all spot on. Our last experience with another house was very poor, but Yan was very responsive when we had questions and very accommodating when we needed an extra night. Access to the community is highly guarded. No one is getting in this place that doesn't belong! The pool was great and having privacy in the backyard by the pool was perfect. Access to Disney, I-4 and tons of restaurants was quick and easy.
