Sweet Home Vacation purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Sweet Home Vacation chose Kissimmee
There are various Orlando vacation rentals near Disney, and thankfully Emerald Island is one of them. The location of Emerald Island is desirable for a family vacation to have because it is nearby most of Orlando's favorite attractions. Have Sweet Home Vacation make your vacation enjoyable! Location location location! At just 4 miles away from Disney, Emerald Island Resort is literally just steps away from many world famous attractions in the Orlando area. While the gated resort is close to everything, it is a quiet location allowing you to relax when you want to stay away from the crowd. All my properties are fully equipped and even baby ready! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me for more info!

Great place to stay!
Check-In was easy and straight forward. $10 charge per vehicle for card access to the gate (which was refunded at check-out). The home was absolutely beautiful and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked. Pool area was clean too. Day 2 the iron went out and maintenance sent the replacement same day. I would have loved to rate the property 5 stars except wheelchair access in the first floor bathroom within the bedroom. It is very difficult for someone in the wheelchair to access the toilet area as it is within a small closet like room with a door. Overall my family had a wonderful experience; would definitely recommend this place for your next vacation!
Thank you for your valuable feedback, as it is important for us, so we can improve and make every stay, a better stay. We apologize for the inconvenience you had with the wheelchair access on the first floor. We have since notified the management team and they have done their best to rearrange furniture to help make it more accessible. We would be happy to welcome you back to our home in the future and would love to offer you a special return guest discount. Thank you for choosing Sweet Home Vacation and it was a pleasure hosting your stay!
Almost 5 stars . . .but
I usually don't write reviews, but thought it important this time. I would've love to give this vacation experience 5 stars, except for some of the issues noted in my review. We arrived at the vacation home after hours, but were able to obtain entry as promised by Global Resort Homes with the access code in the lock box at their office. First negative experience was the lack of hospitality shown at the Emery Resort Clubhouse, where we stopped in to pickup the vehicle gate passes. The ladies behind the counter gave the impression that we were interrupting their leisure time. However they were glad to take my $30 dollars for the 3 cars in my party. More on this later. When we got to the home , we were impressed, clean, well kept with only a few minor signs of wear and tear. I took pictures and reported them, just to be on the safe side. We settled in and all agreed that we liked the home. First problem, next day we noticed lots of little black ants. We were careful not leave any open food items, but the ants kept coming back. I called the Clubhouse, no help at all. Called the toll free # in my email and was promised that I would get a call from maintenance because I had also reported a closet door that was off the hinges and I didn't want it to fall on some one. Never heard from maintenance. Finally just laid the door on the side and went out and bought some ants spray. Next big issue. We had called Global Resort before we arrived and extended our stay by one day. We received email confirmation but I guess the phone operator and the office didn't get the message, so we got locked out of the home on the day before we were to leave because the entry code had expired. Again, no help from Emerald Resort Clubhouse front desk. The two ladies seem to care less that we were locked out of the home, didn't know who to call and they "couldn't" tell us who to call. Their response, "We have nothing to do with the property"? Luckily we went back to the home and found the back door open (Thank God). Finally after talking to several voice recordings because the Global office was closed that day, we were able to speak to a person that was able to give us a new access code. Oh yeah, we left early in the morning and guess what, Emerald Resort Clubhouse was closed, didn't see a drop box for the gate passes. Called the next day, the lady said, laughing, "Your passes are expired and we can't give you a refund" Loved the home, not so much the . . .
Good Experience Overall
Shopping, parks, manatee's...Did i mention shopping? We love coming to central Florida for those and many other reasons and always end up renting a home for the duration of our stay. Emerald Island was recommended to us by an acquaintance at hockey so we decided to take a shot and book it with very little research. Unsure of what to expect, the staff at Emerald Island were fantastic and the rental was well maintained and much larger than it appeared in the photographs. Good Experience overall.
We really enjoyed our stay at this villa, it was very convenient and the value was excellent. The property was clean and well maintained. The home was very close to all the attractions we wanted to visit (Disney, outlets, and universal). This is ideal for families with young ones, as we were able to take the kids home for their mid day nap and return at night. Thanks again!
Great place for our vacation
We enjoyed our time at this home, it worked our perfect for our kids, whom had their own rooms. It was nice to be able to cook dinner in the fully equipped kitchen and then eat it together in the dining area. The home is extremely convenient, only about 10 minutes to Disney. I would highly recommend this home.
Emerald Island is built around a wooded area with a walking/jogging/biking trail. Shuttle services are available to the attractions. There is a large clubhouse with a heated community pool and spa, sauna, fitness center, clubroom, video games room and computer room with Internet access. Facilities also include an outdoor play area for children, tennis courts and a Tikki Hut. Our house is located two minutes away from Formosa Gardens Plaza which has a large supermarket and several shops and restaurants. For sports enthusiasts, there are several highly regarded golf courses within a very short drive. In addition to Disney World, attractions such as Sea World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are easily accessed via the I-4 junction just minutes away from the house. Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach and Busch Gardens are only about an hour's drive away.
