Better Than Expected with Excellent Communication from Owner
"Let me begin by saying that I rarely write reviews. To be exact, this is third time I've ever chosen to write a review. Something has to be really terrible or extremely excellent for me to take the time to provide a review. I'm pleased to report that this property and its owner are on the excellent side of the spectrum. The townhouse is exactly as described and large enough to accommodate three families with children comfortably. I've never done business with an owner who sends so much information in a packet to help make planning and the overall trip as easy as possible. He even included information about alternate routes to avoid heavy traffic into Disney, which we found quite helpful! Upon arrival, he had planned for a nice welcome gift which also included some essentials. The property is conveniently located to Disney and is only a short drive to Sea World. It is clean, quiet, and well designed. Honestly, the other two families (and even I to a certain extent) were skeptical as to what we would find upon arrival because of the location and cost. We could not believe what a "steal" this property is! I would highly recommend this property and would like to commend the owner for his honest, helpful approach to doing business. We will definitely be booking again when we return to the Orlando area in a few years!"

"The house was listed as a 7 bedroom and it's a 6 bedroom. Very nice house only bad thing is the a\c is controlled. We were at parks at 90 degree and came home to 83 degree house that was programmed to cool to 73 degree at night time. House is very nicely decorated."

"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."

"Thanks to our hosts that provided us with their lovely home at Emerald Island Resort this past March. We had a pleasant and relaxing vacation. It was nice to come back in the evenings from the busy parks and relax by the private pool/spa.
The covered veranda was a plus when you wanted to retreat from the sun or cook some food on the grill.
With such a large home our family group of 12(8 adults & 4 teenagers) found it very comfortable and had no trouble finding their own space.
The photos are exactly as shown in the listing so you do not have to picture what things will look like when you arrive. Backing onto a greenbelt gives you that extra privacy.
The owners of this property are very good to deal with and are prompt to answer any questions you may have.
Overall we had an excellent experience while staying here and would definitely recommend this home to anyone wishing to stay in the area."
