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.

Looking forward to next time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicely appointed and very clean. Everything was in working order and all listed items were in there designated places. The pool was clean and the spa was wonderful after a long day at the parks. As nice as the house was, it didn't come close to how nice and well organized the owners were. Every message was responded to quickly and the responses and informationals were beyond helpful and complete. We had no need to contact local property managers while there but all contact info was readily available. I have been vacationing in the Orlando area repeatedly over the past thirty years and I can say that by far that this was the most pleasant rental experience of all. I almost hate to leave this post as it may result in making it harder for me to get a week next time we want to come down. However, the owners deserve to have the information out there. WELL DONE!

The place was even better than pictured. We had everything we needed to enjoy our time in FL.

  • 5 of 5

The resort grounds are very well maintained and the house and pool were clean well decorated. Our experience with this house was 100% positive. I will definitely rent again next year if the property is available!!!

Lovely villa and excellent location

This villa had everything our family needed on our holiday and the location for access to Disney was great. The owner was both helpful and prompt in responding to enquiries.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has gone to Disney World every other year for the past number of years - this was our 5th trip. The owners we had previously stayed with had gotten out of the villa rental business so we had to look for some place new. We definitely made the right choice with this home!

Our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children) really enjoyed the villa. It was clean and well-kept. We liked that they had more than just the standard one table and 4 chairs outside. They had two tables, 8 chairs, and 4 loungers.

We also appreciated the great communication between us and the owners. Would definitely stay here again!

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

Owner's Response: While the guest's comments were positive and did not include anything negative, I am surprised that the guest did not give the overall rental a five star rating.
