The villa was excellent and accommodated 16 people with plenty of space. The pool and jacuzzi got plenty of use when we got back from the parks. Plenty of towels and all other amenities you could want. Excellent location and very near to Disney.
Mrs Duncan, UK
This villa had everything our family (children and grandchildren) needed! It was very neat, clean and well kept. Each family had their own spatious bedroom and bathroom. The pool was the biggest hit with the grandchildren! Having a washer and dryer was a plus! We were very close to Disney so we could take a midday break and go back to the parks at night. We will highly recommend this villa to our friends and family.
Mrs Bestul, USA
We were a family of 11 (the full range: kids, tweens, teens, parents and grandparents) staying at Golden Palms â€“ and we all loved it. The house and pool were to a great spec and in a lovely setting; the few minor issues were sorted out immediately by the management company without a fuss. However, the best feature is the Villa's location which is within 10 mins of all the major Disney attractions and 20 mins to the shopping malls, Universal and SeaWorld attractions. It is the ideal spot for an extended family or two families together wishing to be close to the Orlando attractions but not wanting to stay within a resort complex.
Mr Mulholland, UK
We had a fantastic stay in your villa.It is a beautiful home , it had everything we needed to make our holiday wonderful. It was such a pleasure having lots of bath and pool towels. The starter pack of supplies was so welcome too. The mid stay clean was excellent, everything was so nice when we came home that day, it was lovely to have the beds changed aswell. We will definitely be going to Golden Palms again!!
Mrs Briggs, UK
Just wanted to let you know we had a great time at your villa. It was exactly what we were looking for and ideal for the extended family. Everything we needed was there and we all felt at home.
Mr Paton, UK
As far as a review is concerned, we had a wonderful time. The spacious accommodation, fully equipped was appreciated by all ages. The pool was put to good use every day, and the hot tub in the late evenings before bed. The older children enjoyed playing pool and thought the ice-making feature of the fridge was very cool.
It was lovely to get home after a day at the parks, shower, change, and either head out to one of the many local eateries, or cook up something easy (bearing in mind that 8 of our party are vegetarian).
The three families felt able to please themselves, some in, some out, some playing in the pool, some watching TV. The house provided perfect flexibility which is just what we wanted.
So a great success - thank you!
Mr Taylor, UK
We liked almost everything about the villa - it was a good size for our group. Nicely decorated, comfortable, luxurious! The two shared bathrooms worked well for us as we have two families with small children. It was great to have a selection of board games and dvds (even although none of them were used - too many other things to do, but if it had been a wet week they would have been used), and the games room was well used. Fantastic to have so many towels - that was unusual in our experience of self catering, but this was the first time we'd rented a villa in the States. Kitchen was a suitable size for the party, and equipped with the right sizes of cooking equipment for such a large group. As we ate all our main meals in that was really important for us. The pool and hot tub provided a great area to 'hang out' that allowed the adults to sit and chat while the children used up energy in the pool.
Thank you again for making this villa available for groups like ours. The week was one of the best we've ever had, and in no small measure due to the accommodation.
Mrs Couper, UK
We loved the villa, my grandchildren ages 14, 12, 8, and 6 loved the pool; big enough for everyone. The games room was a great success, everyone had their own bedroom with a big comfy bed and the villa was equipped to a very high standard. All the main parks are only minutes away and so many restaurants 2mins by car. Local restaurants deliver to villa as well. We found so much to do to, many wonderful places to name, we visited a place called Boggy Creak and went on an airboat ride at night. It was brilliant, grandkids loved it and we saw 14 gators. We will remember this holiday for a long time to come.
Mrs Middleton, UK
I would like to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying there again in the future
Mrs Chighizola, USA
Thank you very much.... your house is whoooowwwwwww...... GREAT...!!!... We enjoy every minute in your house... it was a great time and our kids were so happy... Thank you, thank you , thank you.....!
Mrs Rusconi, Switzerland
Myself , my Wife, Children and Grandchildern stayed at this wonderful property for 9 days in March 2011. The location would be hard to beat as it is located near all major venues, shopping, restaurants, and various reaction spots. The Emerald Island Resort has nice amenities and offered various events daily while we were there as well. The Villa itself was very clean and well kept and filled our evey need. The pool offered hours and hours of enjoyment while not at the near by attractions, and with the game room and numerous TV's no room ever became overcrowded. I would absolutely recomend this Villa and Resort to anyone considering a villa style vacation.
Mr Hoopman, USA
My family stayed a week at this wonderful property June 12-19, 2010. There were 9 of us (7 adults, a teenager, and 2 5-year-olds). Everyone, young and old, loved the property. The kids would have been content to stay in the pool the entire time. (Well, perhaps going to Magic Kingdom every now and again). There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and the home was just as pictured. You can't go wrong by choosing this lovely home! I have and will recommend to any big group I know.
Amy, Bowling Green, KY
My family - there were 13 of us - rented this home in March of this year. I would HIGHLY recommend this home. The house was beautiful, clean, and located in a great community. The kids (ages 5, 8, 11, 14) loved the pool and the game room and the Mickey themed room was a huge hit for the two youngest.
