Guestbook comments from the owner

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 vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Astonishing

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with the whole process, the owner answered all my questions and pointed me into the right direction when he couldn't find the answer about the basketball court. The maintenance man came to clean the pool on the day we planned to stay at the house and swim instead of going to the beach but he couldn't have known that, so the kids had to stay out of the water for a couple hours. The house is BEAUTIFUL, great location and had enough space for all 16 of us on our 4 family vacation in early June. I will recommend this house to all of my friends and family. However some of the furniture and accessories needs updated, the couch was worn, the table in the game room was wobbly, the pool sticks had missing tips, foosball table had missing knobs, washer didn't work properly, none of these things affected our stay.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home Yan sincerely very happy renter

Owner's Response: We’re happy to hear that the guests were pleased with the house and appreciate the comments provided. The couch and the worn furniture were already scheduled for replacement but due to the busy rental schedule, we had to wait till an available break. All have been replaced with brand new furnishings. The pool sticks have been replaced as well as the washer. We’re also working to repair the foosball knobs. I’m happy to have these guests at my house and our actions in response to his constructive comments have made my house an even better one. Thank you!

Amazing family friendly Comfort close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Yan was a gracious and wonderful to work with. She made everything easy. This was a great trip and house. The beds were extremely comfortable which was a high priority for us - we like a good nights sleep. The location could not have been better. It was around the corner from ANIMAL KINGDOM and from TARGET. Truly convenient. We could go run and grab our apples and sandwich supplies and then to Disney parks for the day. The pool was very private. There are no neighbors to the back.

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes for our family trips for the past 10 years. We always stay in Emerald Island as it is very close to Disney (5-10 minute drive), close to all amenities, and is a nice, gated community.

Over the past 10 years we have booked several different houses with mixed results. Some good and some not so good. I am always weary of renting from a new place as you never know what you are going to get until you arrive. This was our first time renting this particular property and I am so glad we did.

The owner (Yan) set my mind at ease by being very responsive to my many requests and questions when I was looking at a house to rent. We also really appreciated that Yan allowed us to have the house a little early as we had an extremely early flight in to Orlando and the house was empty at the time.

Emerald Island was as beautiful as I remember. It is nice to have the feeling of security staying in a gated community with a 24 hour guard. The boys appreciated the volleyball and basketball amenities as well as the workout room located in the clubhouse.

The house was nice and clean when we arrived and the pool and hot tub were warm and ready for us to use. The property manager stopped by and was very helpful and friendly. Everything was there that we could have needed at the house to make our stay an enjoyable one. The house was perfect for our group of 11 and we probably could have fit in a few more people comfortably if needed.

We didn't have any issues at all on our trip but with the service we received from Yan and the property manager I have no doubt that any issue would have been resolved promptly and to our satisfaction.

Overall great vacation and thank you Yan for giving us the opportunity to stay with you. We will definitely keep you in mind for our next trip.

Everything we needed was there when we arrived. The house had all the things that were listed on the website and it was ready for us to use. It was my first time renting a house for a group and the owner was very attentive to my many questions. I would highly recommend using this property!

Excellent attention

  • 5 of 5

The process for renting the house was easy and simple. The owner of the house was always very attentive to each of the questions I asked. The house was generally in very good condition and clean. Definitely try to re-rent the house at some future trip.
