About Owner/Manager

We are a retired couple. The husband was a certified public accountant with a regional firm. The wife was a homemaker. We use the villa for three months each year to escape the winter weather of western Pennsylvania.

Owner/Manager purchased this villa in 2010

Why Owner/Manager chose Disney / Orlando

Upon retirement, we started to come to Florida for a month or two. Each year our time in the Orlando area increased. We used time share weeks and rented villas and town houses during the first years of annual trips to central Florida. In 2008 we found Emerald Island and fell in love with it. We decided to buy a second home near Disney in 2010. After considering several nearby vacation communities, we purchased our villa at Emerald Island. We have not regretted our decision.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome vacation in your Villa. The property was very clean and well maintained. If we were to talke another vacation to the area, we would want to stay in your Villa. Your property managers took care of the problem (pool heat) as quick as they could. It was so kind of you to give us a refund because of the pool heat. Thank you so much for letting stay in your Villa. I will tell my friends and family what a nice place it is to stay.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(8 traveler reviews)

average rating of 4.75 based on 22 reviews

Exactly as it states on the "tin" - Excellent Vill

  • 4 of 5

You will not go wrong with this Villa or its owner( Dick).

The villa was in very good condition and it was clean/tidy. It really does have a homely feel and has that relax atmosphere through out the building.

The owner ( Dick) is very communicative and will respond to your messages promptly

The location is also perfect, if you wanted to be slightly away from usual tourist area, but yet close enough to all the parks , shops etc..

Eating out/shopping/beer - Approx 5 min away from the villa.

I am not in the habit of posting reviews, however on this occasion I feel Dick/his Villa deserves a positive feedback.

Enjoy you stay, trust me you will not regret it.

My overall rating would be 4.5 to 4.8

Owner's Response: I am disappointed the guest did not round up his overall rating of 4.5 to 4.8 to a 5 rather decreasing it to a four. Guest's written comments are all positive. He was a great guest. He made some good suggestions to me for consideration on how to improve an already excellent villa. Dick, owner

Wonderful vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six (4 adults and 2 teenagers) very much enjoyed the villa, in particular the large kitchen and dining areas, pool/spa and games room in the garage. The bedrooms are a good size and there was plenty of room in the villa so we never felt crowded. The house was very clean and well-equipped. The resort is located a short drive away from a Super Target, Walgreen's, and many restaurants and gas stations. It is 20 to 30 minutes away from the Disney theme parks. The Emerald Island Resort is very well-maintained and we felt safe and secure at all times. The owners were very proactive and accommodating in arranging the rental. We highly recommend this villa and would definitely rent it again in the future.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults 2 kids) stayed here for 14 days at the end of summer. Everything was just perfect for us and the kids loved the pool while we enjoyed the hot tub. The owners were more than helpful and we appreciated their concern that we have everything right for a perfect stay.

This is the second home we have rented in the area and we by far preferred this one. The Emerald Isle Resort gave us that 24/7 security and peace of mind plus the benefit of being in a well cared for area.

Great location and a real gem for people with kids. Plus caring owners and you can't go wrong. Thanks Richard!

Great vacation option for Disney

  • 5 of 5

This was a great option for our family trip to Disney World. The house provided plenty of space for us to spread out, and it was in excellent condition.

The drive to Disney World is very quick (we were closer to a couple of parks then people who were actually staying at a Disney Resort). Emerald Island offers a number of amenities (pool, playground, tiki bar) for vacationers who aren't planning to visit Disney every day.

The owners were very nice, and were exceptional at communicating with us as we planned our trip and then as our travel date approach.

Had a great experience, and look forward to renting this vacation home again in the future.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for 8 nights (family of 6 – 2 adults, 4 children). We arrived at 4 pm and we were extremely pleased with the property. The property is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath house and it was just perfect for us. Actually, we didn’t even use the 4th bedroom because we had 2 kids in each bedroom and then my boyfriend and I shared the master. The property was just right for us.

The furniture was recently updated and you can tell that the owners really take special care of it to ensure the comfort of their guests. One of the kids’ bedrooms was decorated in a Disney Princess theme and I thought that it was cute and would probably generate a lot of excitement for young guests who are getting ready to visit the Disney Parks. Our girls are older (16 and 13) so they didn’t get excited about it, but they thought it would be cute for younger girls. The other twin bedroom was decorated in a sports theme and was cute as well. My son felt very comfortable in the room and there was room in both of the bedrooms to store all of their luggage items.

The master suite had a patio door that opened directly to the back yard and pool (with accompanying Jacuzzi), which was nice. The house was very comfortable. It didn’t feel like we were stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing to carry on day-to-day activities (i.e. cooking, cleaning, etc.). We just stocked the fridge with lots of waters, juices, and breakfast items. Since we spent the majority of time at the Disney parks, we weren’t really “home” too much. I wish I would have planned to spend just a few days to stay at the house and have a BBQ (which is also included with the rental) and swim. The kids enjoyed just hanging out at the house and I didn’t think to take that into consideration before I planned our itinerary. The house really has everything you need to have a good time. There’s even a game room in the garage with a pool table and foozball (not sure how to spell it) game, board games in the living room, and TV’s in each bedroom. There really is something for everyone there and I can’t say enough good things about it. The owner was very responsive to any concern or question that I might have had, even texting me to notify me that there was a going to be a possible delivery of a new dishwasher. I appreciated the communication and felt that this was one of the good points about renting this villa. All in all, my family would definitely stay here again, and hopefully we do (soon)!
