About Donna Cottenden

My husband, 2 boys and myself live in Bolton, Lancashire.

We have spent many enjoyable holidays in Florida and finally decided the time was right to realise our dream and buy our own Florida home.

We chose Emerald Island because of the facilities available to the family and its proximity to The Disney Theme Parks.

As parents of 2 boys we knew we had to have all the mod cons ie XBox 360 with Kinect, flat screen tvs and the all important ipod dock and wireless internet.

We hope that you will enjoy holidaying at our Villa and create your own happy memories of Florida.

Donna Cottenden purchased this villa in 2011

Why Donna Cottenden chose Disney / Orlando

We chose to buy our property on Emerald Island as it offers a safe manned gated community with community pools, tennis courts, volleyball court, gym, nature trails for cycling, walking or jogging.

There is a pool bar selling draught beers with organised activities during peak times.

Emerald Island is just about 1 mile from the Formosa Gardens shopping centre where you'll find TGI Fridays, Outback Steak House, Carrabas Italian, Subway, Taco Bell and Winn Dixie Supermarket. This is also where you'll find our property management company should you need their services.

Being just 4 miles from Disney it really is the ideal base for your Florida family holiday.

What makes this villa unique

The property has flat screen tv's in each bedroom and lounge together with XBox 360 with Kinect and games for your use.

We have installed a games room with pool table etc.

We will provide hairdryers for your use so that you don't have to take up valuable space in your suitcase.

The property is located at the beginning of the estate so is within easy walking distance of the clubhouse and resort amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A big thank you to Donna and family for letting us stay in their beautiful villa for the last 2 and a half weeks, cannot recommend this villa and the location enough! Missing the pool and geckos already. Hopefully we will be back.

Perfect villa in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was fantastic. Spotlessly clean, perfect location for all the Disney parks and a real home from home. We stayed with 2 boys 3 & 4yrs and were able to totally relax around the villa knowing it was very safe for the children to have some freedom. The pool was lovely and great that there was a safety net round it and patio doors that securely locked. This was great for peace of mind. The owners were fantastic with providing lots of information prior to arriving and they really did think of everything in the villa. The kitchen had lots of cutlery/crockery even a slow cooker which may sound an odd thing but it was great to put a spag Bol in go to a waterpark for a few hours and come back to a home cooked meal. A welcome change after the Disney fast food meals. The boys loved having their own tv's in each bedroom and the parents enjoyed a game of pool in the garage when the boys were asleep. We will be staying at this villa again it's everything we could have wanted and more. Fantastic!!

Ideal position. Immaculate. Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Villa was ideally situated in Emerald Island. It was in first class order. Spotlessly clean and well looked after. Very spacious with every amenity you could ask for. To top that was the sunny private pool. Lastly Donna, the owner couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect.

Great Villa, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa , just as described .. very clean with everything for a great holiday. The location is an excellent base for Disney only 5/10 mins.and Universal about 15/20 mins away depending on traffic. As with most villas in Kissimmee you will be spoilt for choice with restaurants ,take aways ,supermarkets etc and also 'shopping' .. all close by.

We particularly enjoyed the sunny peaceful position of this villa and the excellent customer service provided by the property owner.

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. Donna was the best at advising us of directions, things to do, places to eat and where to shop. The house was amazing. Everything was perfect. We did not utilize the potential of this house as we have an action packed weekend at Wrestlemania. Every detail of the property was just as describe. Thanks for opening up your home. It was great to come back to a private home to relax after being out and about all day. No noise from neighbors as you would find in a hotel which made our experience so pleasant. The days of staying at a hotel are long gone! Thank you! Worth every cent (which was very reasonable)!

We will definitely be back.

Great family villa and resort complex

  • 5 of 5

As per the title, a great family villa and resort complex... Not our first visit to Florida, but certainly the best experience to date. From before flying, the owner (Donna) was really very helpful and attentive, as well as welcoming. On arrival the villa was spotless and looked fantastic inside and out, kitchen well catered and the bedrooms looked very inviting, especially after Transatlantic travel.

Pool area was also spotless, plenty of sunbeds and chairs and the pool itself was lovely and warm. When not in the pool, TV's in all rooms, WiFi and an XBOX360 to go at.

Resort itself is also very good, well located for the parks as well as shopping, the onsite clubhouse, pool (with Tiki bar) and gym also excellent, we'll definitely be back....

Nice Villa

  • 4 of 5

Nice villa and very good communication by Donna. Enjoyed the gated commuity and even used the gym a couple of times in the club house.

Felt the size of the villa was more for 6 people rather than 8.

Good location for Disney and all the amenities that the 192 has.

The finishings in the kitchen and bathrooms were of the lower statndards for American homes - the showers could definitely be improved.

Games room a bit disappointing - no netting in the pockets in the pool table, so they all fall on the floor when you pot them.

All in all a nice holiday home that is definitely worth staying in - at a very good price,
