Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

From the start I knew we had picked the right place to stay. Jonathan was great to work with and very accommodating. Instructions for access were sent prior including directions. information about the villa, the local area and attractions. Unfortunately two of my boys got sick and we had to find a Dr., but the instructions including information about a local urgent care facility which we used. The unit was spacious for my family, my sister family and my parents. In all we were 6 adults, 2 teens and 3 children and had plenty of space. Since the kids were sick part of the time we were happy the villa was well stocked with the game room as well as DVD's, games, puzzles, etc. Having the pool out back is a great bonus and the kids loved it. My parents liked the fact that the patio sitting area is covered to give some protection from the sun and the ceiling fans made it so pleasant. The villa was super close to the playground which my kids enjoyed and we also used the one near the clubhouse. Overall a great vacation was had by all.

From the Owner

We are a family with three children. We started holidaying in Orlando in summer 2005, renting a villa at Sunset Lakes. The following year we rented at Emerald Island and haven't looked back since! We really appreciated the fact that Emerald Island is modern, secure and very well looked after, peaceful and yet so close to the Disney parks. In 2008 we were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase our own home at Emerald Island and after redecorating throughout and refurnishing in early 2009, we now have a wonderful holiday home to enjoy!

From the Owner

What we enjoy most about staying at our home is we get the best of both worlds: we can spend a lazy, quiet day in our pool one day then being so close to Disney, Seaworld and Universal have a day out at the parks the next. Quite often we will spend a few hours in the park then head back home for a quiet afternoon around the pool before venturing out for dinner and then an evening show! Being around an hour from the coast means as well we enjoy a few days out either at the beach (Clearwater, Indian Rocks, Cocoa or Daytona) or exploring further afield, for example St. Augustine.
