My wife and I have 70 years of teaching between us. Our goal is for each and every guest to have the very best vacation of their lives, to tell their friends, and to return. We enjoy giving guests information and tips that will help them have the very best vacation of their lives.

Terry Puffer purchased this house in 2004

Emerald Island Resort was built for the Disney guest. After recovering nicely from their early years of growing pains, Emerald Island Resort is central Florida's premier destination. This is a gated and guarded community with night patrols throughout the resort. Recent improvements such as concierge trash and recycle service have made Emerald Island Resort an outstanding resort community.

1. Game Room--Trip Advisor published that our game room was one of ten top vacation home amenities in the US. Since that award, we have added a Simpson's Pinball and a Shuffle Alley. Our Arcade machine plays over 1000 games, our driving game that races around Alcatraz, our Shuffle Alley, and our Simpsons Pinball are all set to FREE PLAY. A Wii with game library, billiards, and a pop-a-shot basketball round out our game room.

2. Pool and Spa with dual heating of solar and over-sized heat pump

3. Comfortable beds--memory foam in each and every bed to make for comfy sleeping

4. Endless hot water with our solar hot water system

5. Home Theater with Bose

6. PS2 or PS3, DVD Player, and LED TV in both twin bedrooms

7. 2 master bedrooms with ensuite, LED TV, DVD player

Tropical Retreat is the best rental home we have ever stayed in - period. Not only is it minutes away from Disney, it has everything for everyone! Plenty of space, impressively decorated and conveniently located to anything you need our family of six thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Our week was a blessing and we encourage anyone to stay here as Terry has anticipated any family's every need. Well done and we will be back!

Tropical Retreat for Disney vacation

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 19-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
We stayed at Tropical Retreat for a week in September while the family (Two parents and two kids, 22 and 18) went to Disney World. It's a short distance from the parks, so it was great having a place only about a 10 minute drive to return to so we could cool off and relax before going back.

There are two master bedrooms (with bathrooms) and two kids rooms (one Lion King themed and the other Finding Nemo themed; two beds in each. My grown kids said they were comfortable/big enough). Kitchen with everything in it though you have to buy you're own food. There's a in ground pool out back as well as hot tub.

Another big draw is the game room. Pool, air hockey, basketball, arcade. There is also a Wii, PS2, and PS3 in the house along with games for each. The game room/systems were nice in keeping people occupied in wait times. Both my kids, again 22 and 18/both avid video gamers, did note that the video game selection was a little on the poor side, and if they had known would have brought their own games. They did, however, go nuts for the Disney movie and classic Disney cartoons collection also at the house.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad to hear you and your family had a great vacation.

Tropical Retreat---Great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 15-Jul-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
This was the best rental home we've had the privileged of staying in. The house was everything we expected--super clean and very, very comfy. The kids loved the game room (the best thing on the planet) and the pool. The pool and spa were enjoyed nightly and I was very surprised to see someone come and actually clean it while we were there.

The BBQ grill worked great and was very clean when we went to use it (we have stayed places where it was not cleaned). Upkeep and maintenance seems to be a high priority.

The management company responded very quickly when I called them (TV remote needed a new battery).

Having an 18 month old, all the baby items were perfect. The double stroller was a savior at the parks!

Next time we rent, I think we will skip the parks and just stay at the house....that's how much fun the kids had!

I think the only thing I can complain about was the fact we had to leave and go home!
Owner's Response: Thanks for the Review, Deb.

It's good to hear you and your family had such a great vacation. We look forward to your return.

From amenities to value this well maintained property was quite a hit with the kids as well as parents. Only wish it was a little closer to home (Denver). Disney World less than 10 min. Don't think we could have gotten a better property. No added charges for anything. GREAT TIME !!!!

This home is close to Disney and a fun place to be! We had minor issues and the owner responded to emails very quickly and solved our problems. The game room is amazing. I hope to go back.
