About Craig Strangward
Our family first visited Florida in 1995 and have made it a regular holiday destination ever since. After our first few visits we discovered Emerald Island Resort and continued to rent villas there as it is superbly located and all the villas are of outstanding quality. We enjoyed Florida so much over the years that we decided to buy two villas in Emerald Island Resort and would like to welcome you into one of our homes for a wonderful vacation.
Craig Strangward purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Craig Strangward chose Kissimmee
The Emerald Island Resort is superbly located on the US192, just 3 miles (10 minutes drive) from Disney World yet secluded in a gated community surrounded by a conservation area for those relaxing evenings.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is so close to Disney World that we can visit the theme parks in the morning, come back during the evening to relax and cool off in the pool and have a bite to eat then return for more fun and fireworks at the theme parks! The south facing pool overlooks a lake and conservation area, perfect to enjoy the Floridian sunsets. Our villa isn't just close to Disney World; Universal Studios and Sea World are within a 25 minute drive to! There is a large supermarket just over 1 mile from the villa and superb restaurants are all located within a couple miles. Even on the days when we relax at the villa there is plenty to do, the games room with top of the range pool table, air hockey and foosball keeps the family entertained for hours!

Great vacation house
Second year in a row that my family and I rented this home. Outstanding!! Rented several other homes in Emerald Isle over past ten years and obviously it is the best. We will be back again. Thanks for a great vacation!

Simply the best
Everything was in order. Perfect house for the 11 people we had staying. Only issue that we had was with the A/C. Spoke to property management and they explained that the A/C was preset as low as it could go. Being from Louisiana, we like it a little cooler. We kept the doors shut and minimized going in and out and everything worked out perfectly. Would definitely wstay there again. Highly recommended.
The house was exactly as it had been advertised. We were 2 families staying in the house and we all enjoyed our stay.
The house was clean and supplied with some of the necessities to get us started. The location was just perfect.
Wilderness lodge is perfectly located for all local amenities and attractions, the choice is absolutely amazing.
