About the Owner

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was spotlessly clean, beautifully laid out and my wife and I both had a little "wow" as soon as we walked in.

Bedrooms were all lovely, each having their own TV, with each TV having the ability to watch its on cable channel. The pool was great, just having a swim in your own pool was a little bit of luxury.

The large screen TV and Xbox in the living room went down well.

Finally, location was spot on. It was great leaving and actually being at Disney in 15 mins, and that's 15 mins driving normally. As we drove to Legoland Florida we passed areas that my friends had recommended, safe to say they were a fair bit away from Disney yet all my friends tried to say these were "close".



Overall, can't say thanks enough and wouldn't fail to recommend it to anyone else I know who is going. It certainly topped off a fantastic family holiday having such a great base/accommodation. MC & family October 2012 (as submitted to trip advisor under ref EI8435SK)

1st Visit to Florida - October 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Florida. We were due to arrive on the 6th October as a party of 8. Unfortunately Hurricane Matthew had other ideas and delayed our arrival until the 9th October (We stayed over in New York so it wasn't so bad). When we arrived at the Villa it was spotlessly clean and all 8 of us thought WOW. The Villa is an excellent location for all parks, eating places and local shops. I would recommend the villa to all, you won't be disappointed. Donna provided us with some very useful tips regarding short cuts to parks and finding the local amenities. Her help in the lead up to arriving during the hurricane was also much appreciated. We visited the following parks during our stay: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Typhoon Lagoon, Universal Parks, Aquatica, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Kennedy Space Centre. Overall I would rate the villa as 10 out of 10 and will hopefully be returning in 2018. Well done and thank you Donna, your villa was Magic.

The best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

A truly fantastic holiday made even better by a wonderful stay in this immaculate Villa. The Villa had everything you needed and even more! Donna and her family have put a lot of thought and love in to this beautiful home and our children wanted to move in permanently!

I could not recommend a better person to deal with, Donna's communication has been excellent since booking the holiday to arriving home. Donna even emailed me part way through the holiday to check we were all ok when bad weather was forecast to pass through Orlando.

Donna gave us some great tips of places to eat and shortcuts to Disney parks etc. We hired an SUV an had no bother finding any of the attractions as everything was in close proximity to the Villa. We also felt reassured that the Villa is in a resort which you need to pass security to enter.

Our favourite restaurant was Longhorn Grill and you certainly won't go hungry as the choice of restaurants around is huge. All get busy around 7.30 to 8, some you can pre book and others you may have to wait. We just used to go around 7 and never had an issue getting a table.

A good tip from Donna was not to order starters as you get a lot of extras such as warm bread and salads that they bring to your table free of charge.

All of the parks were relatively busy as it was the 6 week half term but our trick was to enter the park and go the opposite way and never queued more than 30 mins for any of the top rides. It is also good to use your Fast Passes for the top attractions in the Disney Parks.

Our favourite park was Universal Studios and it really comes to life at night so worth staying or go back a little later on a second day.

Our flights were direct flights from Manchester with Virgin Atlantic and we could not fault anything at all.

We hired our car beforehand with Alamo and the pick up was smooth and no hanging around.

We bought our Disney tickets etc beforehand through American Attractions in the UK which I would recommend as the parks had huge queues for people wanting to buy entrance tickets.

Thank you once again Donna and family for making our stay a fantastic one. Just to finish off, the pool was a real highlight and so refreshing after a full day in the heat at the parks!

Superb family villa

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic we stay we had here. On arrival to Emerald Island our first impressions were excellent. The villa itself was everything we needed and more. It was very clean and comfortable. Very spacious and the pool was in a great position for the sun. In the area there is a lot of choices for places to eat a quick drive away. The parks are very close. We would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend this villa to anyone.

An excellent Villa, superb location for Disney!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, the location is excellent; I do not think you will be able to find such a conveniently placed Villa. The 192 with all its restaurants and amenities is a couple of minutes away and Disney is within 5-10 minutes drive. The complex is very safe and secure and the grounds are immaculate.

The Villa is very well presented and equipped with essentials such as towels, ice packs and pool toys, and the pool area is lovely.

I cannot recommend Donna highly enough, she always dealt with any e-mails very quickly and sorted the wif-fi issue (my fault!) whilst I was there. All in all, this is an excellent Villa for a party of 6-8.

Lovely villa on a beautiful resort and a good location

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a 2 week stay at this villa, the villa Is clean and tidy and is like a home from home, having the pool area was great and at the back there's a nice green space so you done feel closed in by other villas, the villa was well equipped with everything you needed even pool towels, we found it easy to find with the directions from the owner and its in a great location for all the parks and other attractions,

I would definately stay here again, 5 stars

Location

From the Owner

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.
