  • Disney trip for two families

    "I looked around A LOT for a place for our family and another family to stay at during our trip to Disney World and this one seemed to be affordable and nice. For the most part, I was happy with this house. It was definitely better than a hotel for sure. The kids loved having a pool right there (and I loved not having to always walk to the clubhouse to take them swimming!) It also was clean, which is important. The small things that I didn't like were that it seemed like they didn't really want to take the time to make your stay really comfortable. We had stayed at a townhouse in Emerald Island a few years back and those owners had everything from laundry soap, beach towels and toys, to every kitchen utensil you could imagine! Even big, fluffy bathrobes in the master bathroom to use! When we arrived at that home, the towels were were even folded into the shapes of swans on the countertops! You could tell they had an excellent management company. This rental home basically gives you the bare minimum you can expect. Right down to only ONE roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. It was a bit annoying that we got in from flying all day and we had to worry about finding a walmart on our way to the house just to buy toilet paper and dishwasher soap, etc. There weren't even sheets on the beds. The kids' bunk beds literally had the fitted sheet and then an old, faded sponge bob comforter on them and that was it. The pool lights didn't work most of the time so the kids swam in dark water at night. I emailed the owner about how to turn them on, but the knob he told me about never did anything to make it work. Also, we had paid for a BBQ grill rental and were told it would be there when we arrived but it wasn't. We had to track down the management company and they didn't even bring it until the next day. Annoying. So bottom line: it's a decent place to stay and the price was fair. Just don't expect to get the Hilton treatment. More like a Super 8 level of vacation home. It could probably be a lot better if they hired a better management company and just tried to make things a little bit higher quality (bedding, maintenance issues like the pool lights, extra towels, enough toilet paper, etc) but oh well. Still not horrible, just could use improvement."

  • Excellent Stay at a Great Price

    "We had a great time in this wonderful villa! The house is the same as shown in the pictures. It was very clean and had plenty of towels and bedding for our large party. The pool access security system was great since we had kids with us. This home is located very close to shopping, restaurants, Disney and other theme parks. The owner quickly responded to our questions and it was a simple rental process. We will definitely stay at this property when visiting Orlando again. Thanks so much!"

  • Great vacation option for Disney

    "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."

  • Perfect vacation!

    "My husband and I traveled to Florida for a family reunion/vacation. This condo was perfect - We stayed with two of his brothers and their spouses. Each couple had their own bedroom and bath. The in home laundry was a real convenience. This place is close to EVERYTHING! We did theme parks, spring training, golf, and ate in the best restaurants. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a centrally located, clean and cost effective way to stay in Florida."
