About the property

Detatched, 7 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16) private Pool, close to Theme Parks

Live the 'AMERICAN DREAM' in our HOLLYWOOD ROCK and ROLL Home!

Do you love Films and Rock music? Congratulations! You’ve discovered one of the most unusual luxury vacation homes anywhere. Our theme is 'The American Dream' and we've tastefully decorated to celebrate our favourite icons, from Heroes of Rock and Roll to Hollywood Stars. 7 bedrooms (sleeps 16) 4.5 bathrooms, South facing (sunny all day) with private Heated Pool and Jacuzzi, at the award winning Emerald Island Gated Resort, Kissimmee.

We're just a few minutes from Disney and very close to most of the famous Theme Parks and numerous Golf courses - you couldn't be better located! Our home is perfect for the larger family or smaller groups of families and friends sharing, and you'll love the unique Rock and Roll / Hollywood fun “vibe”

With over 4,200 square feet (including extended deck) and plenty of loungers and shades for sun worshippers, we've put TVs and DVDs in all the bedrooms. We have Full Air Conditioning, including the Games room where children of all ages will enjoy Air Hockey, Foosball, Table Tennis etc. Take full advantage of free International calls to phone home and tell your friends what a great time you’re having! We have Cable TV, Netflix, a vast open plan Family Room with 55' TV, DVD and Soundbar plus a library of over 100 DVD and Blu-Ray discs. Free Internet Broadband too – just bring your WiFi enabled laptop.

All linen and towels are provided and in the Laundry room you’ll find a Washer, Dryer, Hair Dryers and Ironing facilities. Each bedroom has it’s own unique theme, and includes two private Master en-suites with their own 40” Flatscreen Internet TV so you can surf the net from the comfort of your own bed – very cool!

Our themed bedrooms all have TV's, plus either DVD players or Netflix :

The Hollywood Suite with huge King size bed, plus private en-suite

The Rat Pack Suite with Queen size bed, plus private en-suite (See the Disney fireworks in the distance from this room in the evenings!)

The Superstar Suite with Queen size bed

The Guitar Hero Suite with Queen size bed

The Divas Boudoir with two Twin beds

The Cyber Zone with two Twin beds

Hogwarts Hideaway (Harry Potter themed room) - 4 Bunk beds

And for our youngest guests we have 2 Strollers, 2 Highchairs, 2 Portable Cribs, stair safety gates, intercom and patio door Pool safety alarms.

You'll love the extensively equipped Kitchen with its' own intimate Nook area (which usually turns into a social gathering place as well as an eating area) where you can watch the underwater pool light at night – Magical!

Dine in style in the formal Dining area, eat 'al fresco' round the Pool or just enjoy a well earned glass of wine in the heated Jacuzzi at midnight while you plan the next days’ outings. And after all the excitement of the day if you prefer some peace and quiet, just head for the privacy of the cosy lounge at the front of the house, away from all the action. You'll find amazing original portraits, a unique mural, fascinating pictures and incredible giant sculptures throughout the home.

We usually book a 7 day minimum from Saturday to Saturday, but sometimes in the low seasons a 3 day rental is OK.

Finally, we’re pleased to say that our low season rates apply for a full 8 months of the year - basically all the time except for Summer, Xmas / New Year, Easter & Thanksgiving!

Is this the most fun and unusual vacation home you could ever stay in?

Almost certainly.......

About Mark Dawson

Our “Hollywood Rock 'n Roll ” home is owned by myself, Mark Dawson and my wife Debbie, and we both live and work in London, England. I work in the Music Business and have played in bands and run a recording studio for more than 35 years (hence the musical theme!) and Debbie is an Antiques Trader specialising in Teddy Bears who is also currently studying for a Law Degree.

I first fell in love with America when I visited it as a teenager on a school trip, and we are very fortunate to have now realised a lifetimes’ ambition by owning our very own vacation home in Orlando. We’d like to share our love of Films and Rock music with our guests, and hope we can welcome you to our home!

Mark Dawson purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark Dawson chose Kissimmee

Emerald Island is a beautiful Gated Enclosure complete with Lakes and a Nature Trail, just 5 minutes from Disney and very close to the Theme Parks (Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Discovery Cove, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, etc) - you couldn't be in a better location. The nearby Highway 192 houses Restaurants of all types and we're located so centrally that you're right on top of just about anything you might need, from a Medieval Banquet to Wal Mart!

What makes this house unique

There are many beautiful houses in Orlando but we wanted to try and create a themed home with a difference. We chose a 'Hollywood / Rock and Roll' theme because it's unusual, it's luxurious and most of, it's a lot of fun! We have tastefully decorated with amazing giant sculptures, original paintings and rock 'n roll memorabilia - It's a most unusual home! We look forward to welcoming you as our guests and would love to hear from you if you have any comments or require any further information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the house and will keep it in mind when we travel to Orlando the next time. Also we will be happy to recommed it to any friends who travel in that direction!



Thanks again!

Fantastic Family Home for Orlando!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight enjoyed our stay in this memorabilia-filled home. The luxurious main floor master was a nice surprise. The other bedrooms were all upstairs. All were nicely furnished and the management company had the cutest way of folding the guest towels. It presents like a hotel but with the homey touches and privacy of a family home. We were able to prepare meals before and after hitting the theme parks. I was very impressed with the number of towels, the fully stocked kitchen items and the fact we never ran out of hot water. The game room was fun and the pool /spa were wonderful to come home to after full days at the park. It's also close to any shopping we needed. This home is closer to Disney but we found the drive to Universal very easy. I looked through a ton of listings to find the right home for our group and definitely found a great one. The two living room areas, formal and informal dining and bedroom configurations really sealed the deal. We had a very positive experience.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 gathered from 3 states to enjoy a few treasured days together. This was just the place to relax between activities, spread out with plenty of space for everyone, have a place for the younger cousins to swim and challenge each other to rounds of ping pong, and have the convenience of preparing some meals, all within a quiet, lovely, secure setting within a few miles of the Disney frenzie. Mark could not have been more accommodating and responsive. The booking agency was available and responsive when the lock code was changed without our knowledge, allowing us to get into the house right away. We had a most comfortable and enjoyable few days in a lovely and well-kept home. Leaving with sweet memories of happy times together.

A Beautiful House, Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We invited friends and family for our stay celebrating my wife's 40th birthday. We and all of our guests were so impressed with the beautiful accommodations and cleanliness. Mark and Debbie, the owners answered all of our many questions prior to our stay. I can't recommend this house enough. It was magical.
