What better way to enjoy Florida than to live the American dream and enjoy your own home for a couple of weeks! Why stay in a hotel when you can have the luxury of coming home to this peaceful, spacious and exclusive villa on the prestigious Emerald Island Resort and experience the convenience of home-from-home accommodation. This is the closest residential community to Walt Disney World's four theme parks making it a much sought after location.
Inside Emerald Hunny Pot Villa, you will find all of the latest features in vacation rentals. All rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with a very high standard of furnishings throughout. With 4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms, which include 2 master suites (one king and one queen, with en-suite facilities and walk-in closets), 2 Disney themed bedrooms especially for the kids and a pull out queen sized sofa bed in the living room, this villa will make the perfect vacation for any size family/families or group of up to 10 guests. Our dining room features a dining table with 6 chairs, and another dining area including table with 4 chairs which is great for the children. There is also a breakfast bar with bar stools.
Our beautiful home also includes a fully screened custom built heated pool with raised spa/jacuzzi (with removable safety barrier), under water light and separate heating controls. We have a separate Patio area, with sliding patio doors from the lounge and bedroom area, with barbecue grill (complimentary use for our guests) and a large garden area.
Emerald Island's facilities include: Clubhouse with a lavish swimming pool and spa; Tiki pool bar (for drinks and snacks); Gym/fitness facility, sauna and steam room; Games room and a cyber cafe/computer room/wireless internet; Snack bar; Meeting room; Nature trail; Children's play area/park; Barbecue area; Tennis Courts; Volleyball Court; 24-hour manned gate entrance; Manned reception and shuttle
services to Disney Parks & the main area attractions.
You'll find the freedom to do what you want, and when you want, vitally important. This is particularly true for those holidaying with children. We have a young toddler of our own and are used to travelling overseas, so with this in mind we have tried to make our home as child friendly as possible, with lots of free extras (eg cot, highchair, lightweight foldaway pushchair/stroller, toys, board games, PlayStation 2, X-BOX, DVDs for all the family, provision of a safety barrier for access to pool and inflatables are provided for pool use), and of course not forgetting the on-site children's play area. With all the comfort of home and more than a few holiday luxuries thrown in for good measure, we are sure you'll find your stay at our villa one to remember! You have all the freedom to do as little as you please or as much as time allows.

Dear Lucy and Michael,
We had a great time. The accommodations worked out perfectly for our family. I couldn't believe how convenient it was to get to and from the Disney Parks. Everything was clean and working perfectly.
Thanks for all your kindness and help. I especially liked seeing the family photos on the TV. Makes it a little more personal to see who actually owns the home.

We had a wonderful time in Florida. Your villa is beautiful, clean and obviously very new. We appreciate you sharing it with us. You provided everything there is when traveling with kids. The crib, highchair and toys were great and very useful. Honestly that is was drove me to your place since I have a 11 month old and a 3 year old. They had a great time. They especially loved the pool. The character rooms are decorated cute. The rest of the house was also decorated very nice. It felt like home away from home. They kids felt right at home. The adults that traveled with me had no complaints. They loved the villa too. The villa was very clean on arrival. We treated the villa as if it wer are own. We had no problems with getting the key or finding the villa. Again we had a wonderful time and we will definitley keep you in mind when we visit Florida again. I also refered your villa to others.

Dear Lucy and Mike, we all had a fantastic time at the Emerald Hunny Pot Villa and would return without any hesitation. The decor and furniture was beautiful and is exactly how I would like my villa to look if ever I was lucky enough to own one. I hope that any occupants in the future treat it with the respect that it deserves. It was also nice to see your photos on the cabinet and put faces to your names! Best wishes April Clark
04/07/05 Positive We had a blast! The kids had so much fun that we have decided to go back next year... Are we there yet? We really enjoyed the convenience of the amenities. Pool heat works great and villa is very clean. Direct internet access and better BBQ unit would be the ultimate!

Lucy and Mike, We have returned home, and are all terribly depressed! We had such a great time that it will truly be a chore to get back to the regular grind on Monday. We enjoyed your home very much. I am curious about the section in your letter regarding "incentives for repeat visitors" - we will likely return to the area in 2006. What could you do for us as far as a rate for this 2-week period? Thanks again, and thank you so much for all of your help.

Firstly, the directions were wonderful and very easy to follow to find the villa. The villa was immaculate on arrival and nothing could be improved. The info/guest information provided was very good and very helpful. The cleanliness of the villa was immaculate and very clean. The only thing we could not find was a cookie sheet, everything else was fabulous! It could not have been more wonderful - we enjoyed our visit so much that we did not want to go home. Very good value and we had a wonderful time.

We enjoyed our stay, thank you - everything was as expected and as described on your site. Compared to other homes we have rented we particularly enjoyed the little extra’s such as a DVD Player and movies, the PS2 and games, the fact that the pool was heated and ready when we got there – we also liked the location which was nice and close to everything.
We enjoyed our stay – the weather cooperated and only rained on the last day we were there but the boys swam just the same. Our grandsons swam no less than 3 times a day – and we really enjoyed the Jacuzzi… it was nice and peaceful for sleeping and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed watching movies at night after a late swim and walking the parks all day – thank you for letting us share your home - maybe we can do business again in the future.

We enjoyed the space. This was our first family trip to Disney and I just know we would not have been as comfortable had we stayed at one of the park resorts as we were originally planning to do. We also enjoyed the pool.
Great value for the money.
We enjoyed our stay at your villa and are thankful for all your help in making our stay organized, comfortable and enjoyable. The presentation of your website and your materials is excellent. Many thanks to you for opening your home to our family. We hope to do business with you again in the future.

We had a lovely time
The villa was very clean, we were very pleased and on such a lovely resort. We were so busy with family and visiting the parks we did not get the chance to explore that we had hoped, but the location is perfect for enjoying Disney.
It is a good value for the money, especially with a larger family. We hope to return at some point for a family get away with my mother, cousins, aunts, etc. and rent several villas in the resort. It would be a wonderful family reuinion.

Thank you so much for letting us rent your home. It was a lovely place to rest at the end of the day. Our children were enchanted, as were the grownups. Loved the decorating! My favourite touch was the little Pooh set in concrete at the door- such a charming entrance! I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to others.

This was our first rental and I’ll do it again. I loved the communication and ease of arrival and the ability to have our freedom. Our children loved the pool (with the heat was sooooo nice). The ability to make a snack or breakfast and be leisurely was outstanding. Truly like a home away from home. I was nervous and did not know what to expect, but was happy as a clam upon arrival. I had a perm-a-smile when we opened the door. Thanks for everything and best of luck.
It was Perfection - very well kept If this home impressed my mother and wife (who are not related but have superior standards) then the villa passes with flying colors. Yes we do plan on returning. Another nice benefit was that multiple hot air balloon launches took place every morning around us and the last morning the launches were within 1/2 mile. What a sight and my little ones loved it. The 2 and 4 yr old were bouncing around looking every morning. The pool was great and I do miss the relaxation. Thanks again and be well.

The holiday was brilliant and we found your villa in immaculate condition on arrival. We loved every minute. The villa was absolutely beautiful and was exactly what we wanted. Thanks for allowing us to heat the pool. The kids spent every minute in the pool while we were at the villa (and we were not far behind them).
Thanks again. We shall certainly be recommending it to our friends.

Hello Lucy and Michael
As we arrived at your home we were so happy, everything was so nice, clean and beautiful!, it was like a dream come true. We miss the luxury of your villa and the great time we had in the Emerald Hunny Pot (currently we are on the Keys). We will certainly recommend your villa to other people, and who knows, we may return our selves some time.

dear lucy and micheal, thanks for your e mail. we had a wonderful time in your villa, we have been unable to download the questionaire for some reason but we want you to know that the villa was beautiful. the little touches you have made such as the dvds and playstation made a huge difference to our 13yr old son, even though he loved having his own pool! you must be really pleased with the villa and the resort and i'm glad there was'nt any damage during the hurricane, i think the two big villas on either side may have helped shelter it from the wind.We would love to stay in it again sometime,

We really had a lovely time in Orlando and would like to thank you very much. Guest information was very helpful, the house was very clean when we arrived and everything you could imagine in the villa was there to help make our stay more enjoyable. Everything was great and we had a great stay, and we can imagine coming back to the Emerald Hunny Pot in the future.
best wishes from Switzerland

Message sent to Management Company:
Just wanted to thank you and let you know what a wonderful vacation we had in Florida. We loved the house and it worked out great with my in-laws having their own separate bedroom and bath....my Mother-in-Law did great traveling there and back and kept up with us all very well despite the heat...she is so glad they went and she and our kids will have wonderful
memories of her when she is gone. The kids loved the pool, toys, DVDs, PS2, etc.
Please convey to the homeowner how much we enjoyed ourselves in their new home....I think I'll send a group photo of our whole clan if they wouldlike to collect photos of their guests...might be a nice addition to the book....which I forgot to write in before I left...I intended to and got, busy packing and forgot about it...although my 12 year old daughter and my sister both wrote in the book. Thanks for all your help in ensuring we had a great trip!! We really appreciate it!! I hope all is going well with you and your family.
Takecare! Carolyn Brown

Lucy and Michael,
Just returned from Florida. Had a wonderful time.
Your home is beautiful, hope to use it again in the future. I can't believe all the items available for our use. Wonderfully done. All the information supplied was of great help and very organized. We thought the dining room table was set up so nicely we just couldn't bring ourselves to use it!! We just looked at it all week. There shouldn't be much for the management company to do, only a few towels, the bedding and an extra sheet that we put on the floor for the Baby to play on (to keep the rug clean) was left to wash. We cleaned all the kitchen items, other towels etc. Also we left last minute refuse in the pails and put them at the foot of the driveway for pickup. They should find it in very clean condition.
Thanks again, Joe Jowdy
