About Bill & Nikki

We are Nikki and William from the UK we live on the Wirral not far from Liverpool,we have been married 26 years this year and try to visit Florida 2 or 3 times a year, we enjoy taking our Grand children with us if we are allowed, we have 2 sons and 1 daughter all in there mid 20s

Bill & Nikki purchased this villa in 2006

Why Bill & Nikki chose Disney / Orlando

We have an excellent management company looking after our home, they are a married couple looking after just 15 homes on Emerald island resort,we have tried the big companies but they do not offer the personal service we think our guests prefer, they are on the resort every day passing by checking all is well with the pools etc, and are only a phone call away.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with emerald island resort because of the lush planting and Nature walk, the sunsets behind the home are glorious, we have watched it hundreds of times now but we never tire of it especially while sitting in the spa with a beer or two, Home has No Back Neighbors from pool area so you will not be overlooked ,

house directly next door to the left is for owners own vacations and are hardly every their, house to the right is 60 feet away from ours and you can not be seen from their pool area

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow what an amazingly beautiful home. The owners were extremely helpful prior to our arrival answering all of my anxious traveller questions.! Also freely recommending great restaurants and lots of useful holiday tips. The home was not as described,it was so much better! It felt like home as soon as we stepped inside,so spacious,immaculately clean,furnished with great care and the most comfortable beds we have ever ever slept in! And wardrobes that were just like Narnia! Lots of fresh bath and pool towels. A huge washing machine and tumble dryer that we put to good use. The pool was a welcome treat at the end of our 12 hour park days! The location was perfect. The Emerald estate and villa was like a little oasis of lovliness. It took only 10 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom entrance. We were so close to the attractions that it really wasn't an issue to pop home throughout the day. We would return to this beautiful villa in a heart beat. Cannot recommend tit highly enough. It was a pleasure to share this home & it made for a very happy family holiday.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Plenty of room, clean, beds were made when we got there. Kitchen was well stocked. The only thing it needed was new pool sticks for the pool table. Close proximity to anything you want. We were very satisfied with the property and will definitely keep my information so we can rent it again in the near future. Thanks Nikki and Bill for sharing your home with us.

Nice property, thoughtful owners, needs some maintenance.

  • 3 of 5

Had a great time in Kissimmee. We have rented in Emerald Island several times now, but this is the first time for this property. The property is quite nice but has been abused by previous guests by the looks of it. There are a lot of stains on the carpets, cracked mugs, chairs with loose legs in the kitchen (we found some bolts missing so didn't use those chairs) and the pool cues were all in disrepair so we weren't able to play pool. The kitchen was very well equipped with appliances and utensils/dishes etc. which was great for eating in. Also great was the large beach towels provided, which we made good use of by the pool. There were only two faceclothes for the entire house but that's pretty minor. It was also nice to have laundry baskets provided, even if they were a bit beat up. If a pool skimmer had been provided we would have been able to keep it a bit cleaner. We found the pool lost about 2 inches of water a day so not sure if one of the lines is leaking (we kept it topped up each day). Unfortunately the hot tub stopped working partway through the stay but the property manager was able to get the broken part fixed and we were back up and running in a few days. The property manager and his wife were a pleasure to deal with. Overall I would definitely consider renting here again, although it was quite a bit more than what we've paid for another location in the same resort, as the property was nicely located (green space behind) and clean. I don't expect the issues we encountered were anything other than previous renters being careless and I think the owners have been very thoughtful in how they've equipped the property.

A great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Huge lanai and great pool/spa area with no rear neighbors! Plenty of space, even though there were only four of us. Nice HDTV in living room, and flat TVs in all bedroom except one, which had a tube type TV. High speed internet at 50mbs makes it easy to use all of our devices. TV in living room was not smart TV, but we brought a Roku stick ( you can get one cheap and worth it to have for trips if nothing else) and were able to stream Netflix easily. Driveway has parking for two cars, and street parking is allowed, so no problems if you have multiple cars. A nice touch was having eggs, bacon, bread, milk, juice, coffee already at the house to get us started... thanks to the owners for that! Only thing stopping a five star rating was the typical wear a rental property gets... nothing big, carpet on stairs could use updating, very minor little things that aren't even worth pointing out. We've rented homes in Kissimee 4 years in a row now, in Windsor Hills and Formosa Gardens, and we would come back to this one without hesitation. Maybe 10 minutes to Disney Animal Kingdom, tons of restaurants, a couple of grocery stores and gift shops all just a few minutes away. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect and stress free at Emerald Sunset

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was the best we have yet stayed in and this was our 4th visit to Orlando.

Our initial problem of no Wifi or landline was simply solved via an email to Bill and Nikki. This may seem trivial but was a major issue for our Autistic son who requires an internet connection in order to reduce his anxieties and maintain some routine whilst away from home. Thank you Bill and Nikki x

The Villa itself was clean and spacious. The welcome pack was fantastic and very thoughtful in it's content. We were particularly pleased at it including "diet" coke as we had a Type 1 diabetic within the party. Loads of pool and bath towels to use and an extremely well equipped kitchen with an enormous amount of crockery etc.

There was only one thing that the Villa is lacking and that is a pool net or skimmer to enable us to remove any insects etc from the pool. The pool was very clean but occasionally after a thunderstorm, there were a few bugs that we would have liked to remove before swimming.

$10 cash is needed to obtain the access card to the gated community but this is refunded at the end of the stay, luckily I had the cash on me upon arrival. I think this is fairly new as when we stayed 3years ago at a different villa (not as good) within Emerald Island, this did not occur. The access card is brilliant and very quick.

My parents enjoyed remaining in the Villa for a few days rest whilst the rest of us were out and about.

The way you resolved our minor issue within 24hrs was really impressive.

We will definitely have your Villa at the top of our list for our next visit to Orlando.

Thank you Bill and Nikki x

Owner's Response: Thank you Cave family for taking the time to write, really appreciate your message, as soon as i received your message i phoned my house manager and they organised the broadband company to visit the next day he sat i and waited for them to do the work, it was probably a lightening strike, thanks again and look forward to welcoming you back Bill & Nikki

Good stay

  • 4 of 5

Four couples stayed in this home. The 4 Master Suites were ideal for us. The house was clean and nicely decorated, and the supplies in the kitchen were ample. The house could use a little TLC however, but it was certainly adequate for our 3 night stay. The temperature was set at a max of 74 degrees, which was warm for this group. The charcoal barbeque outside is very small, so to cook for as many people as the house holds is difficult.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, have to set the air con to 74 because of the unit freezing solid in the past resulting in no air con at all with guests setting the unit to low, most vacation homes in Florida do this, the weather was very hot so was set for maximum for the unit to work properly with out the AC breaking, the charcoal bbq was left by a previous guest so i have asked my house manager to throw away,we do hire gas grills in though , i appreciate your comments and thank you for staying with us hope to welcome you back in the future
