Great for Family Vacations
This was our second consecutive year staying at Emerald Island and our first at this property. The unit was large and very accommodating for our group (four adults and three children) and could have easily been suitable for a group twice our size.
The building is in a great location (south facing backyard) so you get a great mixture of sun and shade (due to a large tree) throughout the majority of the day. Heating the pool is a definite priority at this time of year as the nights can be cool - making the hot tub all the more essential.
There were some minor cleanliness issues with dishes and glasses and some of the kitchen utensils (pans) need to be replaced. This is fairly predictable considering the unit is rented multiple times throughout the year and not everyone cares for things as they would their own. Everything was passed on to the property manager who was excellent throughout our entire process.
Above all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would easily look to rent this unit again in the future.
Was awesome will rent again grandkids loved the pool did not want 2 leave will keep in favorites
Loved it will rent again hopefully next year thank you
Big house with lots of room
There is plenty of room for a large family/group we had a party of 10 and everyone was comfortable and liked the house. The beds although not top of the line were comfortable. The house location makes for about a twenty minute drive to Disney.
Overall nice trip
The property was clean and met our needs. The pool and hot tub were great! Worth the money to heat. Great communication. Beds weren't the most comfortable, pans were not great and the carpet was in need of replacement but otherwise a great trip. Loved the games and books for the kids.
Thank you for the great review - for future guests we had the carpet on order, to be replaced thru out the home, in our first few open days - glad to say it was installed early March and looks amazing! Michelle
Needs updating with many repairs
Our family enjoyed staying at this house but not because of the quality of the property. There was a strong mold smell when we first walked into the house which did not start things off well. The sheets are thin and wore, the towels are also old and thin. We have stayed at many VRBO and this one did not have anything to get us started except a few rolls of cheap toilet paper and tiny bars of soap in the bathrooms. The kitchen did not have anything either-dishsoap, dishwasher soap, or paper towels. The dryer did not dry clothes very well in that it took 2 cycles to get the clothes dry. Little hot water available for such a big house, leaking ice maker in refrigerator, mattresses are old and need to be turned or replaced. These are the primary problems but I don't think I need to rent a house and then point out all the problems with it.
We appreciate all reviews, and have carefully looked over this guests comments. No other guest has reported the mold smell, not I the property manager, the previous guest or the cleaner. We shall look into the quality of linens and towels, and place if needed, but again no past comment. The arrival info sent to guests outlines what to bring ,plan ahead for house supplies. No issues on the dryer for the cleaner, and never had a hot water request, or mattress concerns. The home owner is always visiting and takes reviews seriously, will be here in January and will evaluate this guest comments and action accordingly. Michelle
