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 2010

Why Craig Strangward chose Disney / Orlando

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

The villa was excellent and accommodated 16 people with plenty of space. The pool and jacuzzi got plenty of use when we got back from the parks. Plenty of towels and all other amenities you could want. Excellent location and very near to Disney.

Perfect space

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed here for 6days and 5 nights. We greatly appreciated the fast response from the owner if we had any questions about the property. It's minutes from Disney and the other parks. The house was up to date on technology, very clean, and kid friendly. Don't mind going back for any future trips.

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very beautiful, spacious, comfortable, and the decor was lovely. Everyone enjoyed the pool and patio, the pool table, and foosball. All the restaurants, theme parks, and shopping outlets was very close to the house. Everything we need was available. I would definitely recommend this home to everyone.😀

The house was so perfect for our family of 16! Plenty of room and close to everything we needed for

  • 5 of 5

The house had so much room and enough utensils and dishes to make a Thanksgiving dinner for 16! The pool and the grill was enjoyed almost every day.

Plenty of towels for both pool and showers. The view out the back with no houses was peaceful and beautiful.

I was able to call the management with a couple of questions and got immediate help and answers.

Our children were under 11 so the game room wasn't much use to them, but it was still available for the adults.

We will definitely try to rent this hour again, if we do another trip to the area.

Fantastic stay at the Golden Palms

  • 5 of 5

Myself , my Wife, Children and Grandchildern stayed at this wonderful property for 9 days in March 2011. The location would be hard to beat as it is located near all major venues, shopping, restaurants, and various reaction spots. The Emerald Island Resort has nice amenities and offered various events daily while we were there as well. The Villa itself was very clean and well kept and filled our evey need. The pool offered hours and hours of enjoyment while not at the near by attractions, and with the game room and numerous TV's no room ever became overcrowded. I would absolutely recomend this Villa and Resort to anyone considering a villa style vacation.
