Our 2014 Vacation

Review submitted: June 17, 2014 Date of arrival: June 7, 2014



My husband and I stayed in this property for one week while taking our two preschool age grandchildren to Disney and other Orlando attractions. We were very impressed with how clean and beautifully cared for this home is. The children felt very welcome when they saw the Disney themed bedrooms and bath. All of the furnishings are nice and comfortable.

Since my husband is not fond of driving this location was an absolute perfect choice for us. It was very close to Disney and other attractions, restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores, which saved us considerable vacation time to do the fun things.

There was a posted "quiet time" for 11:00 pm which was strictly adhered to on the Emerald Island Resort property, allowing us to settle the little ones down easily, and getting peaceful sleep for ourselves, as well The layout of this home is wonderful since it is all on one level. It made it very easy for us with with the little ones. Overall it was a wonderful vacation and we would not hesitate to stay here again, and have already passed the information regarding it to some friends of ours. The owners Ian and Gillian are wonderful to work with, they sent us very helpful information about the property as well as directions and contacts that we may need while there. Which I might add we did not need to call anyone since we had absolutely no problems.

Fantastic villa and fantastic owners!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the villa was fantastic - from initial enquiry through to the end of our stay.

The villa Is very well kept, well equipped and more than enough space for 9 of us (4 adults/5 children). It's a lovely place to come back to and relax after a busy day.

We all loved the pool - which gets the sun all afternoon - in fact, very hard to get the kids out of it!

The games room was another big hit for all ages.

All the rooms were very airy and spacious and the beds very comfy - again, much appreciated after a long day.

Gillian and Ian were so helpful and responded very quickly - happy to help out with recommendations and to answer any questions. The whole booking/payment process went very smoothly and they were in touch very promptly to return our deposit at the end of our stay.

The location is so peaceful, yet in such an ideal location for all the Disney parks, other Orlando attractions and many restaurants and supermarkets.

We have already recommended the villa (and Gillian and Ian) to family/friends and are really hoping to be able to return again ourselves - hopefully! - in the very near future!

Thanks so much Gillian and Ian for helping to make our holiday just perfect.

Lovely villa. Fully equipped and safe pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and this villa was great. We had 7 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room. Pool has child proof gate and plenty of room to chill in the day. We where 10 minutes or so drive from Wal-Mart super store although later on found a closer super market. Also handy for all the parks. About 20 mins drive from each allowing for traffic. Plenty of parking space and if going to florida again will definitely use this villa. Thanks. Ps we have stayed in villas in Europe and this was better than we were expecting.

Beautiful, clean spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 3 week holiday at this beautiful villa. This is our 5th time in Orlando & 4th at Emerald Island and we would definately come back to this villa. It had everything we needed,lots of space for all 7 of us, a great games room to entertain the children as well as the lovely pool. Ian & Gillian were very helpful leading up to our holiday & very helpful in helping us sort out a late check out whilst we were there. I would definately recommend this villa to anyone looking for great accommodation whilst visiting the magic of Disney!

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for us - clean, very comfortable and well kept. Only had occasion to call maintenance once(replace light strip in garage), but they reacted within24 hours.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful to us, and responded very quickly to emails. The route instructions they give are clear and precise, and you are at Disneyworld in about 10 mins.

I would definitely stay here again if visiting the area.

Thankyou Gillian and Ian for a lovely holiday

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a Fantastic Villa located in the beautiful gated Emerald Island Resort, Orlando. From the beginning to the end of my dealing's with Ian and Gillian it was an absolute pleasure and completely hassle free. They where both so helpful with all my questions. On arrival at the villa Ian and Gillian had arranged for lights to be on for our late evening arrival. The villa was spotlessly clean with everything in the villa as stated on their webpage, including tea & coffee to get us over the first night. There is Free Wireless broadband internet and a host of recreational games - pool table, air hockey table football, play station and pool toys to keep both young and old entertained. The pool was great to relax in daily before or after trips to the nearby theme parks, various restaurants or shops. This was a real home from home and we would like to thank Ian and Gillian for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home for 3 weeks. All nine of my family members loved the villa and we would have loved to have stayed even longer.

I would highly recommend renting this villa from Ian and Gillian and will be recommending it to my family, friends and colleagues. Many thanks again to Ian and Gillian for all your help to make it a wonderful family vacation.

Bill and family, Northern Ireland.

Emerald Island review - Watters family

  • 5 of 5

Been to Florida several times over the past 20 years, however we have never stayed this close to Disney before. Villa was perfect for it's location, size (the bed in the master bedroom is "huge" & had a fabulous bathroom) and facilities. Our adult kids loved the games room in the garage & chilling at the pool. Found lots of really good restaurants locally, especially recommend Wildside BBQ & Grill, Olive Garden & Perkins. We tried a number of new restaurants this time & were not disappointed. The owners were extremely helpful both before & after our stay and I would not hesitate recommending the accommodation to my friends. The tennis courts & basketball court were being renovated whilst we were there, so I can't make any comment on those facilities. Only negative would be that we should have thought about paying for the pool heating, as it was a bit cool at the start of the holiday & we were not able to utilise the hot tub which would have been nice. All in all it was a great holiday & looking forward to returning.
