About Carol Merritt
We are a family of four who love active, fun vacations and for us you can't beat the thrills and excitement Orlando has to offer (photo taken in Mexican restaurant in Epcot). We have had several memorable vacations in Orlando, each with a different itinerary which is the beauty of Orlando, there is so much to explore and experience. Our children are 26 and 24 and still keen to come us with and I'm sure they will for many years. We have shared these holidays with grandparents, relatives and close friends. Precious memories which will last a lifetime.
Carol Merritt purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Carol Merritt chose Kissimmee
Our villa is on the closest gated resort to Disney - only 3 miles. You can't get better than this. This is my family holiday home and unlike investors and agents, who run their property as a business and without care, we love our home and take great pride in keeping it in top condition with regular upgrades. We have taken 47 bookings from returning guests, with 11 families returning for their third visit and 7 families for their fourth visit. We have very high standards and reinvest in keeping our home in pristine condition, both inside and out. We are looking to attract guests who would like to rent our home with similar high standards and respect for a beautiful home.
What makes this Villa unique
Being on a gated resort offers the best of both worlds. It offers so much more than a hotel to have your own space with private pool, jacuzzi and games room, rather than just a hotel room. Emerald Island Resort also has the benefits of the conceige desk at the clubhouse where you can seek advice and guidance re local attractions, together with the facilities on the resort. Our management company are always reliable and close to hand should you have any queries; a freephone number is available in the villa for guests to call.

Great place for a family.
The property manager communicates quickly and is responsive to the guest's needs.
The facilities are as advertised. The location is great for access to the theme parks. There is nothing quite like having a spacious home with pool after the days activities are done. We felt safe and secure, in this gated community, and would definitely stay again.
I am delighted you enjoyed staying in my family rental home and considering returning at some stage.
Thank you for the very positive review.
Was exactly as advertised. Great location and easy interactions with property manager.
Thank you Paula.
Great location and house, perfect management
Thank you Andrew for the great review. I hope I can tempt you to stay again soon.
Great Pool and Hot Tub! Very Clean
The house was extremely clean. The pool and hot tub were great after a long day at the parks. Close to Disney parks!
Thank you for your fantastic review which I really appreciate.
I hope I can tempt you to stay again very soon.
excellent service !! thanks again Mr. Lee and Ms.Carol for making sure everything is 100%
We travel every few months to Orlando with our son for medical reasons. We used to stay in hotels. Nothing compare to this beautiful house which is in a perfect condition. My son loved the pool. The neighborhood is extremely beautiful and close to the team parks. Excellent security by the gate. So we could walk around at night with no fear.
I asked for heated water in the pool and the management reply to me in minutes. (if you travel in the winter time make sure the pool is heated at least 2- days before you arrive} I'm looking forward to rent this beautiful house in the future.
Thanks for making our trip to the Orlando so comfortable. Blessings
Thank you for your fantastic review, greatly appreciated.
I am delighted you enjoyed staying in my family home and I hope I can tempt you to stay again soon.
Great introduction to VRBO
From the beginning to end, this was a great experience. Carol was very responsive to questions. The villa was exactly what we were looking for and needed. The pool and hot tub felt great and it was nice having some inflatables to play with.
Everything was clean and nicely stocked. The only two negatives (and they were minor to our enjoyment) was the air hockey table didn't have enough air pressure for the pucks, so we didn't play and one of the bedroom TV remotes stopped working. I changed the batteries with no luck, but since we only had two days left, it wasn't worth getting swapped out.
Would definitely stay again!
Thank you for your great review and I am delighted you enjoyed staying in my home. It means a great deal for our guests to enjoy their stay as much as we do in our family home. I have already replaced the TV remote, thank you for advising.
I hope I can tempt you to stay again soon.
