About Douglas Ebdon

My name is Douglas Ebdon and we bought the house with our three grown up children. We all use the house each year for holidays and to ensure that it is always in good condition.

Our first holiday at Emerald Island was as a family group of 12 and we rented a house identical to this one and in the same street. We purchased our house two months later!

We try very hard to ensure that our guests have a trouble free holiday but should anything go wrong our managing agents are contactable 24 hours and react quickly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first family holiday in a private villa – and certainly will not be our last! We will have no hesitation in returning. Our children 11, 8 and 3 were blown away with the pool area, which was private enough for even me to don my bikini! We had hours of fun in the games room too. Spotless, well decorated, superbly located – we couldn’t have asked for more! The pictures don’t really enable you to gain a full appreciation of the place. Many thanks, until next time – Gill Eggington.

Would Return anytime

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th time to Emerald Island Resort and the first time that we left completely happy. For us the pool was hot, and on all previous occasions we were at different Villas in Emerald Island, we paid for heating but actually the kids had to abandon the pool after 20 minutes as they were a little cool. This time we couldn't get them out even after an hour. Plenty of space and was very clean and tidy.

Owner's Response: I am delighted that David and his family had an enjoyable stay at our house. The pool is always at a comfortable temperature and we are very mindful that young children can feel the cold quickly.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We recently took our children and grandchildren on holiday for the theme parks in Orlando. We were very fortunate to have chosen this fantastic villa. The villa itself catered for all our needs, it was very spacious and spotlessly clean . The grandchildren all loved the pool and spent numerous hours in it. The location is perfect with all the Disney resorts close to hand (less than 10minutes to the nearest). The owner was very helpful in giving useful tips to all our inquiries. The villa was the icing on the cake to a perfect dream holiday and we definitely recommend it to anyone.
