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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in your villa. We were extremely impressed with the layout, cleanliness and the fact that this is the first villa that did not leave our clothing smelling musty. The air con was set perfect. The pool was amazingly clean and clear. Most importantly - we felt complete peace of mind from the start of our booking. Craig was at the end of the phone at all times and was more than happy to give some very good advice to help with our holiday. We would most definitely recommend to our friends and family. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Overall Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The home in Emerald Isle Resort community was as advertised and very comfortable, leading to a very enjoyable vacation for our family. The only thing we would have liked better and would have received a 5 star rating is the heat control for the Jacuzzi/hot tub. Visitors have no control of the heat which turns off in the evening, making the Jacuzzi a bit cool for our desires. Overall great home.

Great property and location!

Very clean with great furnishings. Pool is larger than appears on photos. South-facing view means the pool side is warm during the winter. Property exceeding my expectations!!

Beautiful, clean, spacious house and great location = wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 4 children stayed at this amazing home for a Disney vacation. It was perfect - so clean, spacious, comfortable, and beautiful! Easy check-in and a lovely welcome basket greeted us upon arrival. The house is extremely well-maintained and well-stocked, making it a very relaxing place after a busy day at the parks. We even took a "day off" from Disney and stayed at home for one day, where we enjoyed the pool, patio, game room, full kitchen, and walking around the neighborhood/outdoor playground for the kids. The location is perfect - about a 5 min. drive to the main road where there are tons of restaurants, grocery stores, drugstores, souvenir shops, etc., and about 15-20 min. drive to the Disney parks. Everyone loved staying at the house and it made for one of the best family vacations we've had. We definitely recommend staying here!

Great family property!

  • 5 of 5

Villa was spacious with plenty of room for our 3 families to each have our own space. Welcome package was very appreciated and lots of basics provided. Only thing missing was dish and face cloths. Pool area was fantastic. Lots of sun, seating and pool was perfect temperature. BBQ was a great bonus as well. Beautiful community in a great location. Would definitely stay again.
