4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
Why Sandy Dargie chose Kissimmee
We wanted a property with a large plot area but away from water and trees to avoid insect issues. We also wanted a south facing deck.

Convenient to Disney amd Restaurants
We had a good stay overall but I have a few comments because I am an overly picky person.
Pros: The unit was clean and spacious with a great floor plan and well stocked. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have 3 bathrooms. The location to Disney is great (15 min or so) with plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby.
Cons: The picture of the pool is taken from an angle that doesn't really show how close you are to all the other pools so there isn't much privacy from the neighbors. If you have kids and like to party then this is perfect. At times there were so many people in their pools that it was like one big party often going into the late hours. I understand that it's a community setting but with all the rules and restrictions imposed on me as a renter I was a little surprised at how "loose" they are with the amount of noise tolerated. And I really didn't want to be a complainer and report anyone either. The pool itself could have used a little cleaning and was heavily chlorinated. Also the fact that you can't control the AC temperature was a little frustrating. Two of the bedrooms do not have ceiling fans and were only barely tolerable with the floor fans provided. It wasn't terribly uncomfortable but it would have been nice to have it a little cooler. The only other thing I thought was a little strange was that the owner showed up our first morning there to change the filters. I kind of felt like it was an excuse to see who the renters are. After all, can't the filters be changed when the unit isn't occupied?
Very nice with all the necessary kitchen and household items. Beautiful pool that was great with the kids. Only minutes to Disney.
Had a fantastic time at Emerald Glen. Would highly recommend the villa to anyone looking for a family villa close to all Florida’s attractions. The kids had a ball relaxing in the pool and enjoying the games room when away from the parks. We will definitely return in the future.
Lovely spacious house with all facilities
We enjoyed our stay at Emerald Glen. The house was nice and clean, pool is large and warm. Location is spot on, very close to Disney and Universal. Definitely stay again, thank you.
Beautiful place in an awesome community
This place is awesome and very well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with just about everything for our cooking needs to make our family breakfast morning great. Restaurants and grocery shopping close by. Very relaxing getaway experience in a very spacious and clean community. I would highly recommend this place and would love to come back. Our family had an awesome time during our stay. My only disappointment was that there was no grill however, it didn’t take away from our vacation. The pool was great and we thank you for the memorable stay. This place ROCKS!
The Grays family
We really enjoyed our stay at Emerald Glen. The home was perfect, the pool was a good size and the resort community was beautiful. Would definitely stay again!

Some tips for golf - the golf courses tend to be busier when it's cooler (Nov. through to April) which also means more expensive. Nearly every course will provide a buggy which is compulsory and remember to keep up with the group in front as they do tend to check how fast you are playing and encourage you to keep a reasonable pace. If you play yourself or as a two they will try and pair you with others if it's busier, so be prepared to be sociable. When people golf on holiday they are not always members back home so you may need to be patient with them if they don't know all the etiquette. If you are looking for a bargain then it's cheaper to golf after 12 on most courses but there is a reason for that, it's very hot in the summer and there's a good chance you will get a thunderstorm in the afternoon.
