This home was perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The pictures with this posting are accurate, but do not do the property justice. I just spent a week here, and everything you need is in the home or within a five minute drive. It is well maintained, fresh and clean. It is practically located at the back door of Disney, with all the restaurants, stores, and shops in between. This home was better than the hotel room I booked last time at Disney's Boardwalk, and was only a third of the cost. I will never book another hotel room when visiting this area.

I will end my review by saying that I do not often take the time to leave reviews unless I was dissatisfied with what I received, but I felt that Brian and his family go above and beyond to insure your stay is everything you hope for. I read reviews until I couldn't see straight prior to booking, and so happy I held out for this one. I would recommend this home to anyone. You will not be disappointed!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. VERY close to Disney and convenient to restaurants and shopping. The resort was quiet and peaceful- we felt very safe. There is a playground right around the corner from the house which our children loved. It was so nice to come back to our “yellow house” (as my son calls it) and escape the hustle and bustle of Disney. We were able to comfortably prepare healthy food and snacks for our days at the park to keep our young children happy. We will definitely stay again! Absolutely wonderful!!

Great Location and Comfortable Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for ten days on our first visit to Florida. The house was spacious and comfortable and having our own pool was a real bonus. The location was perfect for Disneyworld (about 10 mins drive), but would probably not be as good for those focussing on Universal Studios. The owners were very quick to respond to enquiries and kindly gave us an extra day for free so that we could stay until our evening flight. We hope to return!

Perfect house for our trip to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we wanted for our trip to Disney world. We loved how the kids bedroom and bathroom had Disney themes. The house had everything we needed and more. The kitchen has all of the pots, pans, dishes and utensils you need for preparing meals. My husband loved having a grill to use. My son would have preferred to stay in the pool than go to the parks! The owner was so easy to deal with. The house is so conveniently located to the Disney parks and Sea World and Universal and all of the stores and restaurants you would ever need. My son wants to go back to Disney just to stay in this house again!

Very good time

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time here. Close to Disney and if you are bringing your own car anyway it’s so much easier to get around. The owners are very kind and made sure the house was comfortable for us. I’d for sure recommend staying here.

Lovely clean house in beautiful resort.

  • 5 of 5

The property fulfilled all our needs. Lovely house and pool. Clean with all facilities and equipment. No problem in locating the property and gaining entry with excellent instructions from Brian. Also very good general information about area, shops, restaurants etc from Brian. Would recommend this property for anyone visiting the Orlando/Disney/Kissimmee area.

About Brian

We have 3 beautiful daughters who LOVE Disney World and Universal Studios. In February of 2012 we decided to purchase a home in the Kissimmee area. When we turned onto the drive leading up to the gates of the Emerald Island Resort, we knew this was where we wanted to be! We bought this home with family vacations in mind (its around 3 miles to the Magic Kingdom!!) and have fully equipped it for our comfort and yours. Come and see the difference pride in ownership makes!

Brian purchased this villa in 2012

Why Brian chose Kissimmee

We have been to the Kissimmee area a few times and love it! Old Town is great for car enthusiasts and kids alike. Of course, Disney World and Universal Studios are the kids' favorite places to be! Come RELAX and PLAY. With tons of top restaurants and shopping, the entire Kissimmee area is great for all ages!!!

We can't enjoy this great property as much as we would like so we look forward to sharing it with you!

What makes this villa unique

The number 1 reason for staying at our house rather than a hotel is that you can stay up and use the pool and hot tub while the kids are asleep! It's so great to have your own private heated pool and hot tub all screened in right in your backyard!

Eat healthy and save money in your own full kitchen where you aren't limited to burgers, fries, and mac n cheese from the parks.

There are beautiful walking/biking trails throughout the EmeraId Island Resort, lots of great golfing nearby and it's only a one hour drive to EITHER coast of Florida... so much to do in the area but also no reason to leave this wonderful home and resort!


Guestbook comments from the owner

On arrival the villa was immaculate, well presented and spotless. Holidaying with a family you just can't go wrong... all facilities of home, seperate bedrooms for the kids, plenty of toys to keep them occupied when they wake early, your own pool and spa... and all the theme parks next door... Book -you won't be sorry!
