About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Ourl 7 bedroom villa is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac and backs onto a lake and conservation woodland. We feel that our villa is one of the most unique villas on Emerald Island. We choose not to have the usual 'furniture package' and instead selected every piece of furniture ourselves to create a very distinctive home for our guests. The bedrooms have beautiful four poster beds or stunning canopies.

Just three minutes from Disney, Emerald Island is a very prestigious gated resort of grand houses. It offers a quick escape from the busy Theme Parks that bring millions to Orlando every year. After a hectic day exploring the sights and sounds of Central Florida, you can retreat through the gates of Emerald Island to the community clubhouse with its pool, spa, games room, tennis courts, volley ball, children's play areas, gym, sauna, steam room, etc. (all free for guests), or wander down nature paths through the conservation woodland and wetlands. The winding palm-lined road that leads you to Emerald Island Resort is a prelude to the community's grandeur. The colonnaded entry, complete with a dolphin fountain and picturesque rotunda provides a dramatic sense of arrival to this exclusive gated enclave.

Our villa is situated on 'The Enclave' in a quiet cul-de-sac amongst other prestigious villas. After a hard day shopping in Florida's famous malls you can relax by the solar heated pool. There are two large lounges so that two or more families can share but still have their privacy. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need and the games room with it's snooker table, volley ball and table soccer provide a great escape for the kids and dads after a day at the theme parks.

The master bedroom on the first floor is large with a en-suite bathroom and walk-in shower. There is also a second master bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the second floor. Both master bedrooms have TVs All the room are spacious. There is a formal dining room and also a nook attached to the kitchen for more informal dining.

House was very nice. Customer service not so much.

  • 2 of 5

Several families stayed here together for Spring Break. House was very nice. Plenty of room for everyone. Did not feel like we were on top of each other even with 12 people. We did have issues with parking though. Were told we could have six cars but really only able to park two in drive. Since it was on a small court ended up having to park around the corner due to number of cars on the court. Not a huge deal. With two days left in our trip we return to the house to find there is no running water. Kind of a big deal! We were unable to get in touch with anyone from management company. Eventually found out the water bill was not paid. Finally talked to management and were told it was being taken care of. Next day still no water. Had to go to other friend's condos to take showers. Made numerous calls to owner and never heard from them. Ended up leaving a full day early and just heading home. Management company told us they would speak with the owner about this. Still have yet to hear from anyone. We were unable to shower, use the restrooms or even cook for the last two days of our trip. Everyone left very disappointed in what had been a great trip. Over all very nice house in a great property but this experience has made us reconsider where we will stay in the future.

Highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my family of 16. We had more than enough room and the kids loved the pool! It was in a great location for our Disney vacation, only 10 minute drive and you're at the parks. We loved it. We were surprised to find Disney parking passes for all 3 of our vehicles in the welcome package we received ($120 savings!). We plan to use this property for our next Disney vacation.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

The house was way too big for just my wife and I but last minute rentals...

I would love to have the house again with my grand kids. maybe next year.

The neighborhood was very private and a great location for all things Disney.

Loved the pool. The rental agent, Rebecca was very helpful when needed.

Home was spacious and decorated nice.

  • 3 of 5

The home was nice and the instructions were clear. There was no heat downstairs and the beds were very uncomfortable. My advice to anyone staying is to bring everything. There was no extra blankets, garbage bags, soap, shampoo, seasonings to cook, coffee or coffee filters etc.

Amazing vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

Well, let me start off by saying that it took a long time to choose the right home for my family of 13. This home is perfect for large families and for families with small children! The amenities were good! The game room was sufficient. The pool and jacuzzi area were amazing. My family and I spent a lot of time poolside! The owners are awesome and easy to communicate with. They also refunded me my deposit in a week of us checking out. Our only issue we had was the lack of TVs and cable in the bedrooms. We traveled with small children who love cartoons and tv. They were not able to watch tv in their rooms. To make this a PERFECT vacation home, I would invest in tvs and cable in every bedroom! Everything else was amazing and I would definitely stay again! Signed, one happy renter!

Plan on staying again!

  • 4 of 5

The community is beautiful, very convenient to everything. The house is very spacious, there were 14 of us and we had plenty of room for everybody. Now, to be honest, when we first walked in, was a little disappointed. The walls were scraped up, family room furniture was worn and the kitchen needed several utensils. However, after talking to the management company after our stay, we found out the owners had come in and taken care of the small issues that needed attention. We cannot wait to see what it looks like when we return! Compared to other homes in the community, this was very affordable also.
