Perfect for Extended Family
"12 family members ranging in age from 2 to 91 stayed here before a Disney cruise. The house was perfect for our needs. The 4 king size beds and en-suite bathrooms meant no arguments about who got what. Although we didn't do much cooking he kitchen was well equipped if we wanted to. The kids loved the games room and the pool although it was too chilly for the adults to swim. Everyone could have their own space and even with 12 people it never felt over crowded. The property was well maintained inside and out and was in a scenic location overlooking a small lake with lots of wild-life to enjoy. We were very pleased with our choice and would be happy to stay there again."

"Not our first pool home rental, but the nicest. Location: excellent, very close to Disney as well as a variety of restaurants and shopping. Neighborhood: better maintained than Rolling Hills or Indian Creek, and not as crowded as Windsor Hills. Located on a pond, no neighbors behind us, enjoyed the visiting wildlife. Home very comfortable, very clean, comfy beds. Kitchen had all we needed and everything worked just fine. Didn't have time for the game room, but did enjoy the pool several times. The owner responds to all questions promptly (very important to us). The entry keypad was so convenient, we're installing one at our house! We looked at over a hundred pool homes, contacted more than two dozen owners, and when all was said and done this proved to be an excellent choice. We look forward to staying there again."

"We rented this property for the month of March 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location and setting in a quiet cul-de-sac (as advertised) were ideal. We were close to Disney and other attractions/shopping, which was great when the family came to visit during the March break. A few minor problems with the pool heat and refrigerator were quickly resolved by Steve and Dee, including replacement of the fridge with a brand new one. We look forward to renting this same property for March 2016. It was a great vacation, and appreciated the attention to our needs given by the property managers."

"This was a great option for our family trip to Disney World. The house provided plenty of space for us to spread out, and it was in excellent condition.
The drive to Disney World is very quick (we were closer to a couple of parks then people who were actually staying at a Disney Resort). Emerald Island offers a number of amenities (pool, playground, tiki bar) for vacationers who aren't planning to visit Disney every day.
The owners were very nice, and were exceptional at communicating with us as we planned our trip and then as our travel date approach.
Had a great experience, and look forward to renting this vacation home again in the future."
