Recent Emerald Island Resort reviews
"My family of 6 adults stayed here for a 10 day visit to WDW and Universal. The location of the house is great. One morning, we had FastPasses that expired at 9:30. We were slow getting moving and didn't leave the house till 8:30. Even with the drive, the parking, the tram ride, going through bag check and the ticket area, we were still on Tower of Terror by 9 AM. The house was a $20 Uber ride from Universal's CityWalk. Within four miles, there is a Super Target, two grocery stores, a liquor store and many chain restaurants. The house was spotless and well-equipped. The beds were comfortable. Our group liked the couches in the family room. The game room was warm - probably not air-conditioned? If I had one thing to do over, I would have paid for the spa heat. The pool was a comfortable temperature. We would definitely stay here again and I would recommend the house."

"We stayed in a similar house in January but this one has 3 bathrooms instead of 2. The house was very clean and in great condition. Beds were very comfortable and we found the house to be very quiet. We all loved the pool and used it often.
The location is great, just a few minutes from WDW.
We had a few minor concerns that were remedied the next day. It is exactly as pictured in the photos. We hope it's available for our next trip."

"We had such an unforrgettable experience staying at David's house! The ease in working with him to book the stay first of all should never go unnoticed - David was great. There were five children and four adults and we stayed for 12 days and 11 nights. We were able to balance relaxation at the house, 5 days at Disney, and three days at Universal. It was perfect. If we thought the heat and parks were getting to us, we took a day off and spent it at the house, in the pool and cooked out. This was all that was needed to get going the next day. The house is well well kept and so comfortable. The kids slept upstairs and the adults took the two kings on the first floor. Having a pool and a spa at the house right out back was a highlight that made this trip unforgettable. Every room - all the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the kitchen, the living room, and the screened in patio out back gave everyone plenty of room to relax in different spots and didn't feel at all like we were on top of each other. We all had such a good time and like I said the house made the trip unforgettable. Thanks David - you will definitely be hearing from us again!"

"We stayed here for 5 days in Nov 2015 and really enjoyed it. My wife and I have a 6 and 4 year old. We also stayed with my wifes parents and her adult brother. I thought the 2 twin and bunk rooms would be good for the kids, but the slept in the bunks to be in the same room.
The layout is nice with one bathroom for the master and two kids rooms upstairs while the are other two masters and two full baths downstairs. There is a formal dinning room that we did not use, as well as a large table next to the kitchen. The family room is right in the middle of it all. We all had a good time playing the games in the garage space as well.
The pool and hot tub are very nice and well maintained. It was in the low 90's while we were there, but we stayed in Emerald Island for springbreak 2013 when it was in the 50's. I recommend the heat unless it is summer.
They do have internet, coffee pot, stocked tableware and silverware. Everything you need except the groceries. Very polite owners that reply to emails quickly.
We have stayed at Emerald Island two times now and it is the only place we would stay near Disney unless we were on the Disney property. It is SAFE, clean, quiet and very family oriented."
