Owner Supplied Testimonials

We were down to the Orlando/Kissimmee area from Canada for a junior golf camp and stayed here for a week. Close to everything. This place was spotless and safe and simply perfect for our group. In fact large groups would prosper here. It's huge!. We had a smaller group and didn't use all the bedrooms but easily could have fit 6 more people. I will definitely recommend this house as your rental. It is so much nicer than a hotel... Thanks Craig We'll be back...

Mr Pearson, Canada

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in your villa. We were extremely impressed with the layout, cleanliness and the fact that this is the first villa that did not leave our clothing smelling musty. The air con was set perfect. The pool was amazingly clean and clear. Most importantly - we felt complete peace of mind from the start of our booking. Craig was at the end of the phone at all times and was more than happy to give some very good advice to help with our holiday. We would most definitely recommend to our friends and family. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Mrs Lungley, UK

We wanted to let you know how much we and our family enjoyed staying at the Wilderness Lodge at the beginning of July. As first time vacation home renters we were somewhat anxious about the process but you made the whole experience enjoyable. Right from the efficiency with which you responded to our emails, through finalizing the rental agreement to the helpful tips you provided to us to make the most of our stay in Orlando - the service was top notch. You have a wonderful property that our five kids just loved. They are all asking when we can go back. Overall 5 stars from our perspective!

Thanks again for making our vacation a great success.

Mr and Mrs Rosner, Canada

We feel that Emerald Island Resort is the best location we have ever stayed in when visiting Kissimmee, both in terms of closeness to the Disney parks and also regarding safety/security, and Wilderness Lodge is definitely the best house we have stayed in as it was so spacious with everything we could possibly need during our stay - it was exactly as we expected from the listing description and photographs provided. The house was very clean and all the facilities and equipment provided were of a high standard, especially the BBQ and the sound system which even plays directly from an I-pod. We considered many factors when choosing a house in Kissimmee including location, proximity to the Disney parks, size, facilities etc, but one factor was the outlook and we were not disappointed by the lovely views from the back of Wilderness Lodge across the lake to the woods. We found the welcome pack extremely helpful as we arrived at the house at 7pm after a 9 hour flight from the UK, and did not particularly want to visit the supermarket until the following day. We also found the owner's directions for the journey from Sanford airport to Wilderness Lodge absolutely accurate and we had no problems in finding our way. Emerald Island Resort is very close to the US-192 which provides a huge range of restaurants, supermarkets, miniature golf courses, and many other facilities and activities. We could be at the entrance to Disney's Animal Kingdom within 10 minutes of leaving Wilderness Lodge. We would have no hesitation in recommending Wilderness Lodge to any friends wishing to stay in Kissimmee, and hope to stay there again ourselves at some time in the future.

Mr and Mrs Filsak, UK

We all had a great time in Florida. Your villa certainly contributed hugely to our enjoyment. The resort was absolutely beautiful and the villa was exceptional in terms of space, facilities and also convenience with the shortcut to Disney, local shops and superb restaurants. We will be recommending your villa to friends and we ourselves may be going back in next couple of years.

Dr Chowdhury, UK

Fantastic situation, first class decor and furnishings. We have been visiting the States for the last twenty years and this was one of the best homes we have stayed in. Everything was exactly as we veiwed on the web sight, the welcome pack is a very welcome and nice touch to the start of you holiday. The house is in pristine condition and would recommend to any one who wishes to stay in a home that is that little bit special. The owners were very helpful with any question we had and nothing was too much trouble.

Mrs Crowfoot, UK

13 of us enjoyed a fabulous week at this villa. We were greeted with a welcome pack of groceries which was well appreciated. The villa was clean, tidy and spacious with every amenity as seen on the advert. It was well maintained.The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities.
The pool was inviting, there was an excellent new BBQ for our use. Rooms were decorated adequately with good furnishings and decor. The kitchen was delightful too. Directions and arrangements to enter the villa were simple and precise and emailed to us two weeks in advance. Payment was simple and deposit returned promptly on our arrival back to England into our account. I would definately recommend this villa and its owners to anyone wanting to explore the Disney Parks ( a ten minute drive away) and downtown Orlando. It is a gated community with many facilities although we had little time left to explore these! The owner provided good customer service.Thankyou for a delightful villa!

Mrs Mann, UK

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Wilderness Lodge in August of 2009. The house is beautiful and exactly as it is pictured on your advert. There is nothing like going away from home yet in the comfort of home while on vacation. This is exactly what we felt during our stay! The accommodations were far better than any hotel. The grounds of Emerald Island Resort are breath taking and maintained very well.

The pool was a huge hit with the kids as well as the garage game room. They also enjoyed the playgrounds on the property and took advantage of a few craft classes at the Resort. Thank you for creating such a comfortable environment for children and teens.

It was a pleasure to receive prompt communication with any questions we had regarding the villa. We look forward to using the villa again and have recommended the villa to friends and family.

Mrs Welch, USA

We had a wonderful holiday and found Wilderness Lodge to be perfectly suitable for our requirements.

We liked the location and the amenities in the villa. We found there to be plenty of cutlery and crockery etc (both plastic and china) for 12 of us which was great so that we didn't have to keep washing up! There were also piles of thick towels to ensure everyone had fresh towels at all times. Although we brought our own beach towels we were very grateful of the use of the additional ones in the villa.

In general the furnishings and equipment were of a high standard.

I spoke to Paul at the management company and found him to be extremely helpful each time.

All in all we had a great time and found the villa to be an excellent base for our family holiday.We would be more than happy to use it again and to recommend it to friends going to Orlando.
