Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to say our stay at the villa in Emerald Isle was a pleasure. It is sometimes scary to rent a place from strangers but Paul the owner was terrific and the listing description was as good if not better then what we were expecting. The Villa was spacious, beautifully decorated, clean and close to all amenities. Emerald Isle itself is a well maintained gated community that we all felt very safe at. I would recommend this villa to anyone visiting the Orlando area. I don't think you will be disappointed but pleasantly surprised at how nice this place is. June Eaves from New Hampshire on 2/24/2010 for a stay in 2/1/2010.

Paul, Where do I start? The house was fantastic, roomy and clean. My family loved it! It is very close to the theme parks which made a big difference when you were tired. The pool and jacuzzi were a big plus. The only bad thing is that we had to leave and come home. We can't wait to come back again. Thanks again Paul. Liz Shaffer, Woodvine.

A family Vacation plagued with problems.

  • 1 of 5

This home is beautiful and the photos show nice furnishings; however, it is a very tired home needing some attention. The owner Paul Vincent was quick to reply when booking and accepted my payments on time and without any problems. We stayed March 17-24, 2017. 10 guests (6adults,4kids) This is a $400K home with the kitchen supplies of a college dorm room. The supplied baby stroller is a death trap, glad we had an umbrella stroller.

Upon arrival we were greeted by 1. a large bug squished on the wall at the front entrance, 2. there was no BBQ as rented($75) 3. the pool heat was not working($135) 4. A bathroom sink that would not drain 5. a broken kettle and toaster. 6. t.v box in one of the bedrooms did not work. 7. A smashed outdoor chair. The home owner was notified, I called the emergency number for the on site management team. I was assured someone would be out the next day to rectify these issues. On day 2 no one attended the home, the BBQ was not delivered at 9am as promised, so we had to go out for dinner ($220 later) the BBQ was delivered at 9pm when we got home. The pool was still cold (65 degrees - bought a pool temp at Walmart) the neighbours to the left and right were swimming in 88 degree pools all night.

Day 3 after numerous calls to the management company I was told that it is hard to get people out on weekends, and these were not "emergencies". I expressed how we are paying to stay here, have kids that can't go swimming, and these issues are an emergency when we are only there for a week.

I emailed the owner and was told to "give them grief".

On Day 4 while we were at Disney for the day, someone came out to fix the sink and pool heater, took the cable box in the room that was not working, it had a label on it "do not unplug or the other cable boxes will not work". So after coming home none of the tv's were working - right during March Madness.

We were without cable until 2pm on Day 7. The pool heat did not get into the 80's until day 6. This whole time I was emailing the owner, my final email to him after outlining my disappointment in the home, requesting a refund for the BBQ rental and pool heat charge. I have not heard from him since, not even a sorry!

Beware when renting from this Owner, or any home managed by Lightmaker property management, this home is tired and has been neglected for some time. Our planned Disney Vacation was not as Magical as we had hoped it would be!!!

Spacious villa -ideal for a Disney family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the villa for a 10 day holiday over the Easter break. We were a family party of 10 – 6 adults and 4 children covering 3 generations. This villa was the ideal venue for us –there was plenty of space for all with the added benefit of 5 bathrooms. The villa was spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped - the laundry room was put to good use on a daily basis with 4 kids to keep clean!

Emerald Isle is a gated community – it is a lovely estate, well maintained and gives a strong sense of security. It is only 3miles from the nearest Disney Park and has an abundance of shops, supermarkets and restaurants within a mile.

There is a good sized pool with safety fencing and a bubbling spa for relaxing in. The back of the villa is not overlooked – the pool area looks out over a nature reserve and we saw many species of birds including some 3 foot tall cranes on a regular basis. The villa has its own games room but as our grandchildren are all girls they were not really interested – much keener on playing in the pool with the many inflatables provided.

The owners and the management company are friendly and easy to deal with. We called out the management company the day after our arrival as we spotted that one of the insect screen panels in the roof covering the pool had come loose – they were there to fix it within an hour.

All in all we found this a great venue for a special family holiday and are happy to recommend it. 2.4.2106

Sommerurlaub 2014

  • 5 of 5

2 Wochen lang verbrachten wir mit 12 Personen einen erholsamen Urlaub in diesem Haus.

Es liegt in einer sehr schönen Wohngemeinschaft und hat eine wunderschöne Aussicht, bei der man auch wilde Tiere beobachten kann. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet und das Management in der Community und die Abwicklung mit dem Besitzer erfolgten ohne Probleme. Zu den Restaurants und Supermärkten gibt es nur kurze Wege. Es liegt auch sehr nah an den Disney-Parks. Ich kann das Haus allen Familien uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Owner's Response: Hi Krayer, Thanks for the review. Here is an English translation Paul We spent 2 weeks with 12 people in a relaxing holiday in this house. It is located in a very nice area with a beautiful view in which you can observe wild animals. The house is equipped with everything and the management in the Community and the settlement with the owner were made without any problems. It is only a short distance to the restaurants and supermarkets. It is also located very close to the Disney parks. I can fully recommend the house all families.
