About The Owner

I was born in England, but have lived and worked in New York for several years. I travel between the UK and US about 4 times a year, but it is always great to come down to our villa on Emerald Island to relax in the sun and have some fun time with the family.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee

We visited lots of resorts in the area, but were immediately struck by Emerald Island. The beautiful entrance and landscaping gave it a wow factor even while it was under construction. We loved the Emerald Island location, the proximity to Disney, easy access to golf, shopping, and restaurants of all kinds on our doorstep. The property was well planned, light and airy and we thought an ideal choice both for our family and for guests.

What makes this villa unique

Emerald Island is a secure, convenient location. We have guests return year after year as it feels like their own luxury home.

Awesome house to rent, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Our family six adults and four children (2-9) rented this beautiful house just before Christmas. What a wounderful experience, the house was cleaner, bigger, and less expensive than any hotel. The house had everything we needed and more. We ate several meals there. Disney World was only minutes away. Everything was very convenient. The owners of the house were very nice and answered our questions quickly, and sent our deposit out shortly after we arrived home. We would rent the same house again! THANKS!!!

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect. Very accommodating and beautiful for my family. The amenities were on point and exactly what we needed for our stay. It was very accessible and family friendly. I loved that it was near shopping, restaurants and the theme parks. I will recommend this home to anyone. I loved it and so did the kids with the themed and game rooms. I look forward to renting again in the future

Perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

We took the children to Orlando to visit the theme parks and have a family holiday. This house was better than we could have imagined.

Location is perfect --- one of the closest compounds to Disneyworld, and we were able to dodge all the traffic nightmares we'd heard about. It's in a gated community, which meant security was perfect. The clubhouse and pool were enjoyable, but we spent most of our time at the house enjoying the remarkable peace and quiet, even though restaurants, shops and supermarkets were only a few minutes away.

The house itself was ideal. The kids enjoyed the pool and little spa several times a day, the bedrooms were comfortable and quiet, the decor is tasteful for grown-ups and whimsical for kids in the two twin bed rooms, complete with Disney motif. Three bathrooms, one by the pool which was really handy, one huge ensuite for the master, and a large family bathroom that is a virtual ensuite for one of the other queen bedrooms.

Kitchen is well equipped, good quality fittings and furniture, and clearly this is someone's home. We felt right at home, and had masses of room to enjoy the holiday.

Ian and Gillian (owners) could not have been more helpful. The maintenance staff were quick to attend to a couple of very minor issues that we had, and our stay at the house was completely comfortable and easy.

This is the ideal house for an Orlando getaway. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with a big group of family and it worked out perfect for all the age groups. The pool and spa were above and beyond our expectations (pay extra for the heating, it is worth it and it is heaven after visiting the parks/attractions all day). The home was immaculate. For the amount of rental houses in the area, the neighborhood is very quiet and incredibly well kept.

The house has 3 strollers available and a highchair, which was great.

The only thing I would tell future renters is to bring these things with you, as the house does not have them there: coffee filters, paper towel, salt and pepper, dish soap, dish washer tablets (they do have one there to start you off), and toilet paper (they have one roll per bathroom to start you off). There is a market around the corner but if you are arriving late at night you may want to have these things on hand.

Gilllian and Ian are great to deal with, we had no issues in booking or when we arrived at the house.

Would rent this one again for sure if we are back in the Orlando area.
