"First of all I need to mention that I have anxiety when I can hear people late at night when traveling. We stayed at an All Star resort last time, and it's horrible! So my quest this trip was to find a decent QUIET alternative. This condo is fantastic! The top floor option, beautiful pictures and furnishings, and the lake were the perfect set up for quiet. My family (me, husband, son and daughter) were there Nov 8-15. We had a ton of space! The sectional couch and huge tv are great. Makes me want to buy the same pieces for myself!) The kids had their own rooms and tvs. We were able to relax a lot!
Perfectly located to access all Disney parks plus Universal very easily. We hardly saw anybody while we stayed at this condo.
A few MINOR things: I thought the pool hours were restricted, and closed at 10pm. A few nights a family or 2 braved to cool night air and stayed in the pool till well after 10pm...sometimes after 11pm. But I have to say that even though I could hear people, it wasn't that loud. I don't know if there are employees monitoring the pool at all, so it would have been nice if those guests were sent back to their condo.
The other thing were ants. Saw a few tiny ants in the kitchen/foyer area. No big deal...until my son pointed out a huge swarm of ants on the baseboard in his bedroom. We bought ant spray and traps, cleaned it up and never saw them again. Makes me wonder if the cleaning crew is through between guest visits. But these things didn't change my feelings about this rental.
I would definitely come back to Emerald Isle again! We would have spent twice the money (or more) to stay in a moderate or deluxe resort on Disney and got half (or less) the amenities. Having a car there allowed us to eat at other restaurants and go to the movies. The Publix was close for grocery shopping too which was nice.
Lee is fantastic to deal with as well. My emails and questions were answered promptly. You get all the information you need and it's easy to follow.
I'd love to come back and stay here! This rental is worth every penny!"

good place but could use some improvements to make it 5 stars
"We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite. Good price for the space you get. Views are wonderful and having lake front views and a nice walkway give it that beachy feel. You can see many fireworks each night from the front balconies. The pool is huge and we loved it. The hot tub is just ok. The jets are very weak. The staff was very friendly.
Having to wash your own towels, there should have been a better supply of them. There probably wasn't because there is no place to put them. Only 1 towel bar in each bathroom. And it was far away from the shower in the master. The master bathtub had a horrible odor coming from the jets that are obviously in need of a good bleaching or something. We had to buy an air freshner to keep from gagging! The water pressure is very low in the shower! And, there really wasn't a lot of hot water.
The dyer took a long time to dry the clothes and towels.
The refrigerator has rust spots on the outside, but fine in.
We spent 3 days at parks and 2 days at the pool. The pool days we made lunch in the room. I was making grilled cheeses then realized there was no spatula in the room.
Our shower handle was broken. We reported it to the staff. Housekeeping should have noticed this. Housekeeping should also clean the ceiling fans that apparantly aren't cleaned. And, you must wear flip flops or your feet WILL be black!! Some frequent steam cleaning should help with that.
I was told there were plently of nice fluffy pillows in the room. WRONG!! 5 out of 6 pillows were about a quarter of an inch thick. Very flat!!! I have vertigo and can't lay flat. We asked for better pillows and got some that were just ok.
The oustide of the building is starting to peel. It can use a facelift.
Overall, it is a very nice place to stay. But, better pillows, more room for towels, better cleaning with fans and floors, fix water pressure, clean the bathtub jets to get rid of awful odor, and add more basic cooking utensils, then this place would be perfect!"

"This is an awesome place to stay. My family and I stayed here for our recent visit to Universal and it was perfect. It is beautifully decorated yet very comfortable. It is centrally located and close to everything. We will stay here again when we returned. Thank you Lee for making our vacation awesome!!"
