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 Kissimmee

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.

Excellent value, perfect location for Disney

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

Richard the owner was very quick to respond to questions and the booking and checking in process was very easy. As there were no guests checking in the day we departed the owners allowed us a late check out which was very much appreciated as we had a late afternoon flight. The management team sorted out the one minor issue we had with the home the day it was reported.

The house was very clean and well stocked with linens and towels. The king size bed was very comfortable (can't comment on the other beds as I didn't sleep in them but no one complained about the beds so I am assuming they were also comfortable).

Perfect location for Disney, 15 mins to the theme parks which bypasses the very busy I4, the information book in the house details the quick route and this was very much appreciated.

Cons:

We were a party of 4 adults and 1 child, and the house was fine for us, however we felt if we'd have had 8 people in the house then it would have felt small and if you're eating in and cooking most evenings the fridge would have been small for 8 people.

There is no privacy at the pool, you can see and be seen very clearly by the neighbours sitting in their pool area, but this is a common design in Florida.

Overall I am giving this home 5 stars as it was great for our group size, the location was excellent and it was very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this home.

Lovely property and great management

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant! Everything was easy, Richard was quick to answer questions and the management team sorted out the one (minor) issue we had with the villa the day it was reported. Richard and the management team also went out of their way to allow us a later check out time due to our evening flight - thank you!

The villa itself is lovely, four good size bedrooms and plenty of space for our group of 5 adults. The instructions for arrival were comprehensive and the villa was extremely clean when we got there. The pool heat (pre-booked) worked perfectly.

It is very well located - 5 min driving to chain restaurants and a new Walmart that opened while we were there, 15 min to Disney and 30 min to Universal. A perfect base for visiting the parks!

I would definitely recommend this villa and would stay again if I return.

Nice well located villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed @ This villa for 2 weeks and was a great place to enjoy our holiday.

The villa was in a great location and central for everything. We had an unforeseen problem with the air conditioning system but this was dealt with by Maira and her staff within hours of calling. Dick had the whole system renewed the next day. The owner was a great help and the management company was the best I have dealt with in the 25 years we have been visiting Orlando , a special thanks to them and we would definitely stay here again.

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 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!!!
