Excellent Choice!

The house was clean, updated and it had every thing that we need and more. I recommended this house to several of my friends for their vacation. We will return again next year.

Its more than the pictures portray ,everything you could need ,spotless and great .
Jill Doyle, Dublin ,Ireland

11/07/11 Positive We had a fantastic, relaxing time in your amazing home! Couldn't have asked for anything more...quiet, spacious, within driving distance to anything we needed, and extrememly reasonably priced - we would recommend it highly to any of our friends planning a Disney vacation! Thanks again!

06/26/11 Positive Wow, what a fantastic home! We loved staying here,
the location is great; Disney is on the doorstep, and
there are lots of restaurants and supermarkets
around.
The house is spotlessly clean, and everything you
could ever want is there - including a chest of toys
that our two children loved! The beds are very
comfortable, and everything is of a very high
standard. We will book this home again for our next
trip, it really did feel like home.
Charlie , Surrey, UK


03/17/11 Positive If you are planning a trip to Disney, this is the place to stay. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. The house is absolutely beautiful. It is so close to the parks. We have small children and they loved the themed bedrooms. Plenty of linens, dishes, and space. Can't say enough about this home. We loved it.
Thank you,
The Donahues
Kevin Donahue, Wareham, MA

12/29/10 Positive We had an amazing vacation. It was so nice to come back to the comfort of the house after a LONG day at the parks. My 3 children (6,3 & 1) loved all of the toys and the Mickey and Winnie bedrooms. The house exceeded our expectations in every way, roomy, clean, kid friendly and VERY close to the parks.
Your service was icing on the cake. I received my security deposit within a week of returning from our vacation.
We will definitely be in touch when we are ready for our next Disney Vacation!


Christina, Coral Springs, FL


08/14/10 Positive We have just returned from our fantastic holiday to Florida, and I wanted to say how much we enjoyed your house. It was fully equipped in every way and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

We stayed at a Disney hotel previously to coming to your home and had to share one room, so it was lovely to have so much space, we didn't want to leave! The little touches made such a difference - I particularly liked the little soaps you left in each bathroom (as I had forgotten to pack any - so it saved us a mad dash to the supermarket.

The Pool was wonderful and facing the sun all day:- Perfect.

Thank you for making our first experience of hiring a villa a great one.
Sue Jeffery, Essex, England

07/01/10 Positive I recently stayed in this fabulous home in Emerald Island Estates. Our experience was fantastic. This home is beautiful and spacious and very accomodating. We loved be able to lounge in the nice pool after all day at a Disney park. This is an exceptional home and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Florida. Also it is a snap to get to all the the Disney attractions as well as Sea World, Discovery Cove and more!!!
Lori Knepp, Williamston, Michigan


06/23/10 Positive We have been to Florida on a number of vacations and as of yet I have to say that we have not had a bad experience with our accommodation. But that being said I would like to make a comment on this years holiday booking in Nancys beautiful home in Emerald Island Resort to say that from my on line dealings with her and our stay in Nancys home that it was as near perfect experience that I would have thought possible and can honestly say that we have nothing negative to say.
George Broomfield, Portlaoise, Laois, Ireland

04/19/10 Positive We just got back from a great week in your villa. Everything about our experience was perfect, from the booking experience through the number of towels and the included pool heat. We rent villas on all of our vacations and this was one of our best experiences.
The Hochhauser Family, Paramus, NJ

04/13/10 Positive At Disney's Door is a great deal and the very spacious home is much nicer than staying at a cramped hotel. The pool and hot tub are much fun. The home has a huge number of ammenties including toys and video games, all needed kitchen implements. Best of all, Nancy herself is very responsive; she provides you with very clear, helpful and timely instuctions on the house and the many local resources. Nancy clearly cares about her guests and takes great pride in the property. What Nancy does not do is nickel and dime her guests like many other rental properties seem to do; the fee is all-inclusive. Would certainly return.
The Helfgott Family, Saint Louis, MO

02/22/10 Positive We all want to thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us for our family vacation. Our family of seven including adult children & grandchildren spent last week in chilly Orlando but the weather didn't ruin our stay. Your home is perfect for young and old. The family room & kitchen provide space for togetherness while you can always get away for alone time in the living room. The pool was a comfortable temp and the jacuzzi always inviting. The grill was perfect for eating at home when desired but there are so many restaurants close by to also eat out. It couldn't have been a more perfect week. Oh - can't forget the Mickey waffles each morning for breakfast! Will recommend & will definately be back!
Sue Kenevan, Brooklyn Park/MN

02/15/10 Positive I have stayed in Emarald Island before but this is my family's favorite house. Very kid friendly, open floor plan, great pool. The owner does a great job with the little details that make a vacation special. I highly recommend this home.
Jerry Doyle, Georgia


02/02/10 Positive We both want to thank you for the wonderful 3 weeks we recently spent in your home at Emerald Island. Your home does not lack a single thing for comfort. We enjoyed the large pool and jaccuzzi. We hope to return in the future. We highly recommend this home for adults and or children with parents and grandparents.
Muriel Hood, Vermont


10/27/09 Positive The house was so nice it was our home away from home for the week. We were so comfortable it had every thing that we needed. Myself, my husband, my two children and mom-mom and pop-pop enjoyed the pool after the long day at the parks. My children ages 10years and 20mnths also loved the video games and toy box full of toys. They also enjoyed the disney theme thur out the house. We were also pleased about the closeness of the parks and stores. The community is so nice(Emerald Island). We will sureley rent the Weidman's house again. We will be back in 2 years!!! Oh! The hot tub was nice too!!! Nancy made the renting easy she was very helpfull!!
GILBERT/FOLEY FAMILY, PHILADELPHIA, PA

06/05/09 Positive We have been to Orlando several times and this home was the best place that we have stayed. Our only mistake was that we brought too much stuff! The house has almost everything that you can think of - and they were clean and working. The pool and hot tub were great and used a lot. The location is great and we highly would recommend the house to others and will return when we come back to the Orlando area.
Sam Burkett, League City, TX


05/05/09 Positive Our stay at your place was great. I cannot say enough about the cleanliness of the home. Everything was spotless.

Our children are 2 and 6 and LOVED the pool. There were plenty of pool toys for them to play with and even a little life vest for our 2 year old. Of course, the adults (me and my husband) also enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi.

Also I would like to comment on how comfortable your beds were. The matresses were so comfortable. The last house we stayed at, we woke up with backaches every day from the poor quality matress.

It was an effortless transition to stay in your home. It was so close to Disney! Much better than staying in a cramped resort with no room to move.

We will definetly consider staying at your home again when we plan our next trip to Disney.

Thanks Nancy.
Cindy Middendorf, Brunswick, Ohio

01/07/09 Positive Hi Nancy,

We stayed at your house in early December and what a wonderful stay we had. The house had everything we needed and if we were there the kids were in the pool. Having all the things we have at home made the stay very enjoyable.

The proximity to all the parks (Universal as well) was also very convenient and the weather was great.

This is the way to do Disney.

Thanks for a great stay.

The Lane Family
Anonymous, Marshfield, MA

06/17/08 Positive Our family arrived in Orlando this past week and the drive from the airport to Emerald Island was a very short and pleasant drive. When we saw the entrance gate to Emerald Island..it was an incredible site and once we made it through the security gate and pulled up to the house..it made us even more excited.

Once you enter the home..you realize that it is HUGE...with enough room to feel relaxed and not cramped. The kitchen had all the necessities, the outdoor grill worked like a charm, and the inground pool and jacuzzi were spectacular.

The house was extremely clean and there were plenty of extra blankets, towels, and other necessities.

I could go on and on....but no matter what...this home, its location, and all it's amenities..made our stay in Orlando PERFECT!!!!
The Sage Family, New Hampshire

05/17/08 Positive We loved the home very very much. Our kids (2 and 5) have had a wunderfull time, they were playing with all the toys. They loved the wunderfull disney rooms and of course the fantastic swimming pool and jacuzzi! We have been several times in Florida and always in a villa, but this villa was the best of all!
So we will come back, and we can recommend the villa to everyone,especially when you have little kids.
Special note for Nancy: thanks for sharing the experience of your beautyfull villa!!
Richard Knoop, Holland


05/14/08 Positive WOW!!! I just left Nancy's beautiful home down in Disney, and I have to say I can't wait to get back. My wife and I took our two boys 7 & 4 along with my Mom and her best friend. Everyone loved the home, the pool, the neighborhood, the proximity to all the parks, and I can't leave out how EASY Nancy makes it for you! After long days at the parks we loved coming home to a private pool where we could relax and cool off. We were looking at hotels when a good friend recomended Nancy's home, and I know I can speak for my entire family when I say I am very glad they did!!!!
Anthony, Boston


04/18/08 Positive I was a little nervous at first, but Nancy was such a
pleasure to work with. I told my husband that if the
experience with you was any indication of your
home, we were in luck!! And it was!!! The house
was perfect, it was very warm and inviting, it felt
like home to us. We would go back in a heartbeat!
Thanks for such a wonderful experience!!!!
Melissa Timotic, Chicago, IL


03/30/08 Positive Feb. 1/08 - Feb. 28/08 This was our second visit to your home and as great as the first time was, this was even better. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we decided to come back for a month this year. You and your house really could not have been better. Both are a pleasure to deal with.
Sandy & Marty, Toronto, Ontario


03/21/08 Positive I was looking for a private, relaxing and entertaining home and this is exactly what I found at Nancy's home. It was a wonderful retreat after spending time at Disney Land and Universal Studios. The house had all the conveniences that one would find at home-nothing spared! The kitchen was over-equipped and user friendly. The beds were upscale and as comfortable as my own home. This is a spacious home and with 4 adults and 2 teenagers we were never tripping over each other and had room to spare. The inground pool was enclosed and secluded-it was well-maintained and was thoroughly enjoyed by all! The house was immaculate and located in a wonderful neighbourhood. I concur with other responders that Nancy is very punctual at responding to e-mails. I had difficulty with my flight due to weather and Nancy was EXTREMELY accomodating. I felt through my e-mails and telephone correspondence with Nancy that she was genuinely dedicated to helping organize my family vacation. She made me feel like I've known her for years (very comfortable rapport) I had never vacationed in this manner before but after such a positive experience would do it again.
maureen keelty, Ottawa, Ontario Canada

11/20/07 Positive We just got back from a very enjoyable trip to Disney. The house was wonderful! My 5 year old enjoyed the toys and stuffed animals and of course the pool was a hit. The location to resturants was great and it was very easy to get to the Disney parks. I'm sure we will be back next year :)
Kathleen Piper, Conyers, Georgia


08/20/07 Positive Our stay at this house was fantastic, everything we needed was there to use, it was nice to have the security of being on a private community, lots of space. Pool area very good, nice to have the saftey barrier.
Good to have the short-cut to Disney parks, we found that it was good to park at Epcot, do that park, then take the Monorail direct to Magic Kingdom, rather than drive between, especially in the evening.
I have no problems reccommending this house, Nancy replied to any Email very quickly and answered any questions.
Do not hesitate if this is your first time booking over the internet.
Georgina Tillyer, Newbury, Berkshire


07/03/07 Positive We had a lot of fun at the house, the location was great, it was as neat as a pin, and the pool was AWESOME. We went in the pool every single day we were here. Also, we loved the little Disney decorations around the house. They totally added a cute little touch to every room. They were very welcoming. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We will be sure to tell our friends and family all about it. Thank you

I will definitely tell our friends and families about you and your beautiful house and i know where to stay next time if we go to Orlando again.
Dawei Li, Jersey City, NJ


06/10/07 Positive This house is fantastic for a trip to Disney. Our kids were estatic with the disney rooms. It was also very nice to have two master suites. This was the perfect spot to end the day, it seemed like home when you walked in the door. Nancy and Jon were a pleasure to work with and all the details went very smoothly. It is very nice to wake up and take a swim before you go to the parks and after many hours in the parks the hot tub was perfect. You will not go wrong by selecting this home for your vacation.
Mark & Jennifer, Va. Beach, VA.

04/28/07 Positive We were so pleased with the house & everything in it that we were talking about when to go back on the plane ride home. The grill, directions, tons of towels, playstation and of course the pool & jacuzzi were all so wonderful. Now that we have been spoiled we wont be staying in a hotel room anymore! My son told us that this was the best vacation of his whole entire (8 yrs) life and I have to say that I agree!
We will be in touch soon in regards to our next stay.
Thank you so much from
The Stewart Family

Suzanne, Pembroke, Ma


04/16/07 Positive We had a wonderful stay in the villa. The pool and jacuzzi were lovely after a tiring day. The villa is situated in lovely location, very handy for the parks (and great short cut tips).
We couldn't fault the villa at all. We will be back!!
Mancer Family, Cambridge, England

03/24/07 Positive We had a truly wonderful visit and we enjoyed the many comforts and conveniences of your home immensely. Your house is furnished and outfitted perfectly...just like home!

We will definitely contact you as we plan our next visit and in the meantime will be more than happy to refer family and friends seeking lodging in Orlando.

You have been a pleasure to work with Nancy.
Russell Stephens


03/09/07 Positive We had a great time at your home! It was so clean, well kept, very open and bright. Our kids loved the toys, the pool and the themed rooms with all the characters. The gated community makes it very safe. We loved that it was a very short trip to all the parks...we could go for half days and be home in 5 minutes. Thank you very much and you can use us as a reference. I have refered your home to 3 families already I hope they book with you. We will definately be back.
Shelley, Brooklin, Ontario


01/30/07 Positive We had an excellent stay at your beautiful home which IS so close to the parks! The home was VERY clean upon our arrival and was well stocked with all of the amenities needed while away from home!!! The two master suites are great for two families! The only downfall of our stay was that the weather was not that cooperative at the beginning of our stay... however we ended up having an excellent sunny day at disney and at least one sunny day by the pool!!! and then we consoled ourselves by shopping!!! The house is so well located and close to everything!!!! and the property managers were so friendly and prompt with responses to any questions we had! Please do not hesitate to use us for reference!! Your house truly lived up to all of our expectations!
Jewel Hartviksen, London Ontario Canada

10/11/06 Positive We had an absolutely marvelous time in your home, relaxing by the pool, and frollicking at Disney. It was terrific being so close to the parks. And I really like the pool having more privacy than most of the villas there, being almost completely surrounded by hedges. All the nice touches for families (from Disney cups and plates, to the toys and playstation) make it seem like home away from home.

Thanks Nancy!
Brian, Windsor, Vermont


09/28/06 Positive We had such a wonderful vacation. The house was perfect for our needs and was so wonderfully comfortable. We felt right at home. Hated to leave!
John & Shauna Dow, Windsor, VT


09/15/06 Positive We had a lovely time in your home everything was confortable and did not make you feel you were in a rental home,the additional benifits of the strollers and Mickey waffle maker and Disney crockery added to the pleasure of our holiday. The Kids had a wonderful time, and to come home to the aircon after a hot and sticky day at the parks was bliss. Thank you
Caroline , Hampshire


05/20/06 Positive Thankyou Nancy and Jon for allowing us to rent your beautiful home which was everything you described and more. We had a fantastic vacation made much easier by your helpful tips and pre-vacation information. The house was more than sufficient for the five of us and having the benefit of our own pool and Jacuzzi was an amazing bonus, especially at the end of an exhausting day in the parks. My only regret is that i did not discover the benefits of renting a private villa some years ago when my children required pushchairs and cribs. Thankyou
Jacqui, England,UK


03/27/06 Positive March 4-11, 2006

Nancy,
I had a few reservations about renting a house from someone I don't know, but you totally put me at ease because you understood where I was coming from. I was 100% satisfied with your home, location, access to grocery shopping, short-cuts to the parks, etc. I will definitely rent again when we return to Orlando. I have recommended your home to several friends, one of whom is already booked for the fall. I know she and her family will enjoy your home as much as I did. Why would anyone want to stay on property, pay 150% more for lodging, to hang out with all those people and have no space to spread out, do laundry, swim privately and cook their own more inexpensive meals??
I certainly got enough Disney during the long days we spent at the parks and we all looked forward to some privacy and relaxation. Thanks again for all.

Lee, Houston, TX


03/27/06 Positive Dear Nancy,
We wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with your home. With 3 children, it was great that I did not have to bring along a portable crib, strollers etc with us since you had everything in the home. We were only about 5 minutes from Disney which was great. We left the park for lunch and then was able to return for the evening.
Finally, the kids loved the pool and all the toys/games that you had available for them. We would definately recommend your home to others and will definately consider staying there in the future.
Mandy Hansen, Mayfield Heights, OH


01/21/06 Positive Dear Nancy,

Wow! You stated that we would not be disappointed if we chose your lovely home, and you could not have been more correct!! We so appreciate your organizational skills, quick responses and professionalism. This was our first visit to Disney and staying in your wonderful home helped to make it that much more memorable!! Your home was spacious, warm, inviting and located so close to all the parks. We especially enjoyed swimming in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub after a long day at the parks!! Our daughter was thrilled with the Pooh and Mickey themed bedrooms and all the toys(both in the house and by the pool), games and books that were available to us!! We used the Mickey waffle maker almost every morning!! The Mickey dishes and mugs where such a special touch too! We would recommend your special home to anyone who is planning a trip to Disney.

Thanks again and God Bless,

The Marzo Family

12/03/05 Positive Hi Nancy,
I just wanted to let you know how fantastic our vacation was. Your house was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better set-up. My 2 year old was ecstatic with the toy box and all the stuffed animals, my 6 year old was thrilled with all the play station games, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Nolan (2) learned to swim all by himself (with a vest on of course) and was so unbelievably proud of himself. The house had more than enough room for all of us (8) and was so well equipped. We have already told everyone we know that when they are ready to go to Disney, we have the perfect house for them. We have already started talking about our return trip too and will positively be renting your beautiful home again! It was just so nice to not have to go to bed at the same time as the kids as you would have to in a hotel room. Instead we got to sit and relax in a nice cozy hot tub - who could ask for more???? Anyway, thank you so much and you will be hearing from us as soon as we plan the next trip.

Sincerely,
The Eastman Family - Nancy, Mike, Josh and Nolan




Nancy Eastman

10/10/05 Positive This was truly amazing. The house is beautiful with plenty of room for 9 people to beable to stretch and relax. We have stayed in the Disney resort before and found this to be much better because at disney you get a little hotel room and have to share a swimming pool, where here you get a huge house and a private pool and hot tub. We will definitly come back in a few years. Thank you
Tammy Mathieu, Clinton Connecticut

08/02/05 Positive Nancy,

We had a great vacation in Orlando and at your home. Your home was new and beautiful...what a good feeling we had the moment we saw it. It was very comfortable for Grandpa, Grandma, Mom, Dad and three kids (9, 5 &3). The two master suites were great.

And just as you said, it was close to everything. The pool safety features were so good that we were very comfortable with the small grandchildren there.

Of course, your house did cause one problem for usâ¦sometimes the grandkids wanted to leave the theme parks and go âhomeâ and swim instead!

We used the directions you sent us all the time. Your thoroughness was such a big help in planning and in being there.

Our 3 year old grandson proclaimed âthis house is greatâ immediately after our arrival, and after a swim in the pool, our 9 year old granddaughter wanted to know why we didn't buy the houseâ¦

Our daughter-in-law loved the Mickey dishes and made us all waffles one night on the Mickey waffle iron. Fun touches.

We could see by reading the visitor journal that you have a steady stream of visitors. We were happy we could be among them. We'll certainly contact you again whenever Disney World is on our vacation schedule. We would recommend your house to everyone. Thanks again.




The Dowells, Chicago, IL

05/01/05 Positive We just loved our stay at Emerald Village! The accomodations were superb and spacious and the pool and jacuzzi kept us all entertained after long days at the parks (or even early mornings). We will tell all our friends to come on down!
Virginia and Jim Crane, Newark, DE

02/28/05 Positive We had a very pleasant vacation, We have
been impressed by your home.
Nothing negative at all. We will be in contact
with you for our future vacation
in your area. I will tell my friends about my
experience at your home
and your excellent service.

Thank you

Michel Yasenza and family

Michel Yasenza, Québec, Canada


02/22/05 Positive Dear Nancy&Family Thankyou so much for sharing your rental home with us, it was amazing! I have never stayed somewhere were their was so many extras for families with children. There is no hotels that offer free usage of all the baby furniture you have. Also it is so nice to be able to enjoy the pool/juccuzi while your little one has gone off to bed, you would not be able to do that in a hotel. We all felt right at home, it was the perfect home away from home!!
The Gregoire Family, Fairhaven,MA

01/10/05 Positive With four children, this was the perfect place to stay. We had plenty of room, the house was very comfortable and the pool and hot tub were a big hit with all of us. It provided easy access to all the Disney Parks.
von Albade, Mokena, IL

10/20/04 Positive Wow what a wonderful time we had in Disney World and staying at your home. When my kids walked in and saw where they were staying for the week they got so excited. The loved the pool, the hot tub and most of all picking out their own bedrooms. The house was perfect for a family of 6. The nights were wonderful. After a long day at the parks, we all got in the pool/hot tub and enjoyed the evenings. My kids didn't mind leaving the parks because they knew they were going home to swim in their very own pool. Plus, having the back way to and from the parks made all the difference.
Chuck and Debbie Burk, Mokena Illinois

10/18/04 Positive What a fabulous vacation we had at your wonderfully appointed home. With plenty of room for our family to relax and every possible amenity, we're sure we could not have found a better place to stay. Plus, the proximity to the theme parks makes Emerald Island the best choice for families who want to be close to the action, but also want to have all the comforts of being at home.

Michelle, Walpole, MA

08/21/04 Positive Nancy,
The pictures sent to us did not do your lovely house justice. It was wonderful, enjoyed by all of us, adults and childen (young adults) included. The detailed information sent to us was a bonus i.e. how to get to the Disney parks avoiding the major roads, and the pool and barbecue were a huge success with us all. We felt totally at home and safe when faced with the prospect of Hurricane Charley (what a great story to tell all our friends!). Thanks for your hospitality - we will recommend your home without reservation. Best Wishes to you all.

The Rice & Joll Families, Horsham, W Sussex, UK


08/11/04 Positive Our two families with five children aged between 2 and 14 had a wonderful time staying at your beautiful villa. It was close to all the theme parks and the kids loved the pool. We really appreciated all the detailed information on where to go and the shortcuts to all the parks. I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone wishing to stay near Disney in luxury accommodation.
Moira Swinbank, London


08/07/04 Positive Nancy, We had a fantastic time at your top quality villa. We were not disappointed and would most certainly recommend it to anyone staying in Florida. Indeed we plan to come back soon. Your home was beautiful, the best we'd stayed in, and we've been 4 times to Florida, staying in villa's each time. Being close to Disney was great, and all the little Disney touches in your home, made the kids think it was a dream house!! The pool was wonderful and the hot tub a godsend when relaxing at night after a day in the parks. All the useful information you provided and how easy you made it book, pay and get there was top notch! Thanks so much. In true Arni style 'We'll be back!'.
The Sugden & Canavan Families, Glasgow, Scotland


06/20/04 Positive Nancy, we would like to thank you for the use of your lovely home. You said we would not be disappointed and we wern't. The house coped easily with 4 adults and 4 children and the pool wasa big hit with kids. The bedrooms were superb and the house had all the gadgets you need. We decided we would like to "beam it" star trek style back home (including the weather). Thanks once again the house made the holiday an extremely good one.
Ashley Heeley and Family, selby, North Yorkshire, UK


04/20/04 Positive Nancy,

Thank you so much for allowing us to visit your Florida home. It was exactly what you described it to be: very well equipped, spacious, clean, comfortable, and centrally located.
We were not disappointed!
Theresa Bird, Toronto, Ontario


04/03/04 Positive This house was perfect. Plenty of room for us, our three children, and my parents. The pool and jacuzzi were great-I think the kids enjoyed them more than Disney!! I would stay here again!
The Hopkins Family, Chelmsford, MA


02/09/04 Positive We spent our Christmas Holiday at your lovely home and had the absolute best time ever! Our Family so much enjoyed the close location to Disney, the heated pool, the great lay-out of the house, the beautiful decor and really feeling like we were at a "home away from home". We were there with our two children, ages 21 and 17, my husband's sister and her 6 year old daughter and my husband's parents. We all stayed together and we had more than enough room! The Main Master Bed and Bath is wonderful! The Disney decor sets the tone and the kitchen had everything we needed. The best thing was being able to come and go to the Disney parks (we were so close!). Everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful. We will definetly be back!

01/12/04 Positive We had a fabulous time staying at your place in Emerald Island. We have been down to Florida a number of times before, staying at various hotels (including in Disney) and time shares, but these were the best accomodations that we've ever had in Florida !!!! Everything was sooooo convenient including the private pool and hot tub and virtually every need that we had were met. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

11/23/03 Positive This house was perfect! We just returned from a week with our five young children. The homeowners have gone above and beyond to accomodate their guests. The proximity to the parks is a huge plus! The home is beautifully decorated and stocked with everything to truly make it a home away from home. Rent this home, you'll be glad you did!!

11/07/03 Positive My husband and I and another couple from Colorado (good friends of ours) met in August in Orlando to spend some time together, after not seeing each other for a few years. We stayed at this villa and were absolutely thrilled with our accommodations. Being two adult couples, it was great having two master suites in separate parts of the house. I am a travel agent and am extremely picky about my accommodations, and I found the villa to be exceptional. It was beautifully laid out, every amenity was available, and the location was ideal for trips to Disney properties. What we liked most were our evenings having a late dinner by the pool (after a full day of trekking through the Disney parks) and then lounging in the pool and jacuzzi with a glass of wine, staring up at the stars. While we were there, Mars was in view, and our friends (who are early morning folks) were up at the crack of dawn to see Mars each a.m. while taking in the warmth of the pool waters. We all decided, when we left, that we wanted a private spa and pool at our own homes!

10/27/03 Positive We had the most fantastic stay at your Beautifull house at Emerald Island.
It was just amazing as soon as we walked through the door we could not believe our eyes at how lovely everything was.
The children were spoilt for choice as to which bedroom to sleep in.
Thank you once again.
