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 Disney / Orlando

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!

Great Rental Home And Even Better Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great experience during our week stay. It was my Husband, myself, our 4 children (10 and under) and my Father. The house had the perfect amount of space for us all and I loved the fact that my Dad could have a master suite that was away from the other bedrooms! The home was clean and we really appreciated the starter supplies that were left in case you can't make it to the store right away. Brian & Danielle were so easy to contact and always replied in a timely manner. What really made this experience even more amazing was the fact that our flight was delayed for weather reasons and instead of having to hang in an airport all day with 4 young children Brain & Danielle let us stay in the home until 6pm. That to me showed just how much they care about the experience of their guests and families that are staying. Thank you again Brian & Danielle! We look forward to staying again :)

Location was perfect. Everything was just as described. No surprises!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time our family rented someone's home and I must say that B & D made it easy. A few weeks before we arrived we received a valuable email with maps and information about where to shop for groceries. I would highly recommend this house to all of my friends and family. My kids (11 and under) loved the garage game room!

A Great Home Makes A Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Nice property, good accommodations (3 adults & 2 adult grand-kids) and great value overall (VERY reasonable rate for winter stay). Easy to book and easy access to attractions. The pool was heated to a comfortable level that has not been our experience at other locations in Kissimmee. This home is a WINNER to keep for future reference.

Thank you to Brian & Danielle Blake for sharing their home.

Wonderful house. Great perks and specific shortcuts to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. We loved that the floor plan was all one level. We loved that the kid's room was decorated with Disney got them excited go to Walt Disney World (WDW). The owners gave nice maps on how to get to WDW, providing back ways (even down a dirt road) to save time. Some paper products, soaps, and coffee was wonderful to have when we got there as was the two booster seats we used while we were there. The pool was a MUST for our children. Since we live in colder climates, it was a thrill to have an outdoor pool. Having our own private pool was great, since the kids could get into their swimsuits and entertain themselves outside while we watched and relaxed inside. For one night, we had friends from the area stay with us. It was no problem to have them stay and the HOA gave them a key card to gain access through the gate. The pool was a bit low one day so I called the owners. They immediately responded and had their pool person come and check on the pool. There were no issues after that. TV's in each room was also a luxury that we did not have at home, as well as cable. Our kids loved watching the Disney Junior network right in their own beds. If we had more time, we would have taken advantage of the 4 bikes that were available. Terrific place. Highly recommend it and will most likely book again if and when we ever return to Orlando.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very close to the theme parks. The gated community is very safe and well maintained with a communal pool and tiki bar. There is also a nature walk at the resort, so lots to do if you don't want to leave the house.

The villa is absolutely spotless with all the facilities you need. The heated pool was really warm even though we were too busy to use it much as we spent all the time visiting theme parks. I would highly recommend this very homely villa to anyone visiting Florida and wanting to be close the parks. The owners were also extremely helpful in providing lots of useful information. Thank you for letting us use your lovely home.
