About Joe and Denise Holman
Hello! Thank you for considering our home! We are a little different from most of the owners in this area because this really is actually our home, it is where we live when we are in the United States. This is it. That is why everywhere you look you will see tender, loving care. So, who are we? We are a normal, fun-loving couple with 11 kids...yes, you read that correctly. We have 11 children. That is why we know what kids like, and why we love Disney. My job required that my family move out of the USA, so we packed up our bags and moved to South America where we rent a small home way up high in the Andes Mountains. We purchased this home in Emerald Island so that we can have an anchor. It is our connection to 'home' in the States. We vacation here. Our older children who now live in the States (WV, DC, and FL) can also vacation here. In a nutshell, we know the importance of a great vacation, probably more than most. Every two and a half years we come back to the States with the entire family, and this is the home we come to. Disney in our backyard, fun all around us, and memories to be made. I know that you will love our home because we sincerely want to do whatever it takes to make this vacation your best one ever. Your children deserve the memories.
Why Joe and Denise Holman chose Kissimmee
We have been coming to WDW since 1992. I honestly do not know how many times we have been here. Due to our frequent vacations, we discovered a few little 'secrets' to having a great time. First of all, staying close to the property, but not on the property. Being close means that you don't spend precious vacation time on the road every day, yet being off property gives you tremendous freedom in food and other choices. That is another key to having a great time. We wanted a place that was close to shopping (Target is a few minutes away) and an easy drive to multiple food choices. A third reason that we chose this property was the resort itself. We wanted activities for everyone to be able to participate in on those 'non-Disney' days. Our resort has a beautiful hiking/jogging trail, gym, pool, hot tub, game room, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and a sauna...and that is just the beginning. Emerald Island is also uber-safe with 24/7 guards and its one-way in/out access. The final reason...just look around. It is beautiful.
What makes this House unique
When we were looking for a property, being close to Disney was a huge bonus, but not the only thing. We wanted privacy as well. You will notice that when you are swimming, none of the neighbors can see you. We also love relaxing outside. Our covered lanai give ample shade, and our real estate agent told us that our pool deck is the largest in Emerald Island. Even when the resort is full, you feel like you are in your own little resort when you open the back door and sit by the pool. We also wanted a place that 'felt' like home--but had the pizazz of Disney. You will agree that the soft colors, the paintings, furniture and rugs all give our home the feel of a 'home' not of an institution or even a museum. In order to get the pizazz, we asked our kids how they would like their rooms decorated. Their input helped us as we chose to decorate the twin rooms in our Harry Potter, Cars, and Frozen themes. Denise and I love Paris, so we made our room, the downstairs king, have a Paris Theme. We also love the beach, so we made one of the upstairs rooms with a beach theme. Our six boys wanted the Star Wars that you see in the game room. Remember, it is our house. :) Our central location also makes it an easy and fun drive to the beach. If you want waves, head east one hour for Cocoa Beach. If your children are younger and you want calmer waters with a family beach, head west to Clearwater, about an hour and a half away.

Beautiful home. Well taken care of and perfect for our group of 10
Kids were up and in the pool first thing in the morning last thing at night. Everything we needed to make breakfast before leaving for Universal Studios and Sea World was there. The bedrooms were a great size and everyone found one they felt good in. Thanks Joe for all your assistance and emails. We truly felt right at home in your home.
Just Like the Pictures!
My family and I had an incredible time at this property. The rental was exactly like the pictures. It was clean, spacious, and the location is close to everything! There was actually a sign that welcomed us and the personal touch was thoughtful.
I had car trouble during check out time and the Manager was calm and worked with me. Five stars indeed; and we can’t wait until next year to re-visit this awesome property again!
Relaxing and comfortable
Everything and more than promised.
Huge house that met all of our needs and more
This place is huge....seven bedrooms and it met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. Our children loved the decorated rooms in the themes of Cars, Frozen, Star Wars and Harry Potter. The three other bedrooms were very nicely decorated as well as the rest of the house. It was well stocked with plenty of dishes, towels, extra bedding and even beach towels and coolers. I saw a portacrib, highchair, and strollers too even though we didn't have anyone small enough to use those. This was by far the best house we've stayed in in all of our 30 years of going to Disney World. We are so glad we found it and we will definitely be back. Oh yeah, and my favorite part was the pool and hot tub area. There was plenty of shade, room for dining around the table, and lots of sunning chairs and even more sitting chairs. Thanks Joe and Denise for a great stay.
So glad that you had an awesome time! Please come back.
Beautiful, Clean, and close to Disney!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florida. This home was absolutely a perfect fit for our vacation, as we had quick (less than 30 minutes!!) access to Disney as well as the beach (Clearwater beach is about two hours away, perfect for a day trip!). Also, the community where the house is located is close to shopping and many fantastic restaurants.
Thank you so much for your kind review of our home. We love hearing how our guests had a terrific vacation while staying there. We hope that you are able to come back one day. We'll even give you a discount as a return guest.
Our location is fantastic for everything that the Orlando area has to offer. We are minutes from Disney, close to Universal and Sea World, and easy drive to water parks and tons of shopping opportunities.
