About the Owner

Hi I bought my home as a holiday home for my family to use and have had some memorable family holidays there. When buying it I researched it to make sure that the estate was gated and to a high standard and most importantly was close to the Disney road network but also felt private too so I could have the best of both worlds. Ask me any questions you like, feel free.

Every trip we try to make a change I want you to feel it is your holiday home not mine. A lot of people have come back for the second or even third time or in the case of a certain loads of golfers sixth !! I like that as I want them to be totally relaxed it it your holiday.

We recently added a TIVO record box for your use so you can tape any programmes you wish to watch for playback when you can forward the adverts !!

Fantastic family holiday in Florida

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 9, with ages ranging from 5 to 68! The villa was lovely-and just as described and shown in the photos. It had everything we needed, and there was a supermarket near by so we could stock up on provisions. The kids loved the pool and Jacuzzi and sometimes it was hard to get them out of there to go to the theme parks! The house really did feel like a home from home and the location of Emerald Island is great. You are nearest to Disney, literally a few minutes away, then a bit further on Universal & Islands of Adventure. We liked being out all day at the parks, then stopping off for something to eat on the way home on International Drive or one of the many restaurants off the 192. The owner was very helpful with advice on things to do and see there and made us feel very welcome. If we were to go back to Florida in a large group, I would definitely like to rent this villa again- it gave us a fabulous holiday with great memories.

Great stay, plenty of space and no problem with beds

  • 5 of 5

House was awesome, we didn't spend much time there, we were in the parks from open to close during our stay but the house is in a great location, the pool looked great though we didn't use it. The only issue was that there were flies inside the house, nothing crazy, mostly in/around the kitchen. Thoroughly enjoyable stay and great house, the owner was very pleasant to work with!

Owner's Response: Hi thank you so much for taking good care of my home. I have never had flies inside the house as the screens keep them away. I will get the management company to check if there is a small tear anywhere.

Excellent accommodation easy access to amenities

  • 5 of 5

This villa is situated in a secured gated community within easy access to all parks, shops, restaurants and amenities. The property has seen an upgrading to all bedrooms, bathrooms and the pool area is one of the best I have stayed in. Fabulous value for money, look forward to our next stay.

Ideal property for a large family or a group of go

  • 4 of 5

Great location. For a group of golfers we were less than one hour travel to a large number of courses. For a family, travel time to Disney is less than 30 minutes. Choice of restaurants within 20 minutes drive is substantial.

Property is ideal for a large group, sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms and public rooms. Looks like there has been recent refurbishment both décor and furniture. Pool area is good and ideal for both sun and shade.

All in all excellent value for money, hope to be back for another visit.

Golfers Trip

  • 2 of 5

Fantastic location in an exclusive resort. Local amenities/restaurants all within 5/10 mins drive. Disney Parks 15 mins drive. Maintenance and décor were to a very high standard. Communication with owner was very efficient and very helpful. This is the 5th time we have used this villa and would have no hesitation in doing so again.

From the Owner

I had four kids and have a large family so we wanted to a base for us all to have family holidays together but for us to have space as well so we did not feel cramped. I loved the fact that Emerald Island was gated and had a luxury feel. As my kids have got older they walk down to the tennis courts or use the volleyball court.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

there are so many things to do that the list is endless contact me for any hints tips etc. Over the years I have travelled with them all friends ,families , babies, youngsters, teenagers the elderly I have loads of tip and I am happy to share.


You are about an hour and 15 mins to either St Pete's or to Cocoa Beach you can visit the kennedy Space Centre and then head to Cocoa Beach for a walk down the beach. Many people do a dual centre holiday, this year I am staying in Miami first and then driving up. All the kids are completing their padi qualification !


You can book shuttle buses and taxi's so being a driver is not essential but I would recommend a car. You can fly into Orlando International, Sanford or Tampa airports. I have flown into all of them. This year I fly into Miami and out from Tampa


5 miles from Disney World with Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach being the closest. If you use the Disney road network you are about 20 mins to Universal

Further Details:

A welcome pack of start up groceries will greet you on your arrival but there is a supermarket less than 5 mins drive away together with restaraunts ,Subway etc. We have walked home after a few drinks at the Outback restaraunt but not with the kids! The Emerald Island clubhouse is good for a nice night, the pool side Ticki bar and entertainment are great for a few drinks out of the house while the kids play in the pool or games arcade.

From the Owner

I love the fact that I am so close to everything and also that once I go through the security gates I feel as if I am removed. The nature trail and pavements in Emerald Island are ideal for a run and my husband not me!!! goes running most mornings whilst on holiday. It is difficult to walk up and down in Florida so I love to walk the clubhouse at night for a change now and then, they serve drinks and you can also have a bite to eat. The Buffalo Wild Wings Restaruant is a favourite for us as it shows all the Uk sports although to be fair the now show in the house but then I don't need to cook
