About the Owner

Our family first visited Florida in 1995 and have made it a regular holiday destination ever since. After our first few visits we discovered Emerald Island Resort and continued to rent villas there as it is superbly located and all the villas are of outstanding quality. We enjoyed Florida so much over the years that we decided to buy two villas in Emerald Island Resort and would like to welcome you into one of our homes for a wonderful vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the villa, my grandchildren loved the pool; big enough for everyone. The games room was a great success, everyone had their own bedroom with a big comfy bed and the villa was equipped to a very high standard. All the main parks are only minutes away.

Mrs Middleton, UK



We all had a great time in Florida. Your villa certainly contributed hugely to our enjoyment. The resort was absolutely beautiful and the villa was exceptional in terms of space, facilities and also convenience with the shortcut to Disney, local shops and superb restaurants. We will be recommending your villa to friends and we ourselves may be going back in next couple of years. Dr Chowdhury, UK



What a fabulous villa you have. It was perfect in every way. Everyone enjoyed it tremendously. So well equipped with everything we could wish for. The pool area was much enjoyed and the outdoor area for bbqs was very useful for so many people. We would love to return there again one day soon. Mrs Sansom, UK

Total satisfaction, then some!

  • 5 of 5

We had very high expectations of this luxury villa, and we were more than happy. Our 15 strong family party could easily spread out, and the good quality baby equipment was invaluable for our 2 babies. The pool and BBQ area, safe from insects and unoverlooked, made for wonderful park-free days, while the close proximity of all things Disney meant we spent very little time travelling to and from the parks. The villa itself was very well stocked with all the essentials, super clean, and tastefully decorated.

The owner provided excellent customer service, and the whole experience was wonderfully problem-free. We are certainly glad we chose this particular villa, and hope to come again in the future. Many thanks!

Facilities

From the Owner

Our villa is so close to Disney World that we can visit the theme parks in the morning, come back during the evening to relax and cool off in the pool and have a bite to eat then return for more fun and fireworks at the theme parks! The south facing pool overlooks a lake and conservation area, perfect to enjoy the Floridian sunsets. Our villa isn't just close to Disney World; Universal Studios and Sea World are within a 25 minute drive to! There is a large supermarket just over 1 mile from the villa and superb restaurants are all located within a couple miles. Even on the days when we relax at the villa there is plenty to do, the 2 lounges wih large HD TVs and the games room with top of the range pool table and foosball keeps the family entertained for hours!
