Great trip/stay for a big family
Both the house and Emerald Island resort are beautiful. The clubhouse staff was very friendly. We had to email the owner, Jinchen, about a minor issue and some questions. He responded right away and sent the manager (on a Sunday!!) to help us out and answer our questions.
The house is about 15-20mins away from Universal and Disney is closer than that. We came home for lunch because it was so convenient.
A big plus for us was that our favorite pizza place, Giordano's, is just about around the corner from the house. There are a lot of places to eat nearby.
Since this was our first time renting, and since we didn't know the area, we were worried that it might not be a safe neighborhood or that we would get a different house than pictured, but we didn't. It is huge and very spacious. Being 15 of us, we thought we would be in each other's way a lot, but that wasn't the case. We all had ample space to move about and not worry about intruding on each other.
We were also put more at ease about the location after a Disney employee asked us where we were staying, to which she stated that the area is in a very safe and excellent neighborhood and that we have nothing to worry about. So, if we decide to rent again, we will definitely be staying here.
Very nice place. There were a couple of things that needed fixing but it was a fantastic place and led to a great vacation. I will try and book again.
Its a good property and we have rented it twice. The problem is I have not received my damage deposit back from Jinchen and I get a excuse each time I email him.
Lots of room, but needs some love
We recently stayed at this house for a week when we went to Disney. We had two families and our nanny go down, so we wanted each person to have their own room and space. The house was definitely big enough for all of us and that was the main plus. Now with the not so great things. Almost the first thing we noticed when we walked in is that we set things on the island and almost knocked it off because it isn't fastened to the cabinets anymore. Then you look over and see that the pantry doors have been knocked off track and are just folded up sitting in the corners of the pantry. None of that is a big deal, it just wasn't what we expected. We decided to go swimming the day we arrived because we didn't have Disney passes until the next day, and that's when we were really shocked. The pool was nasty green and moldy. I called the management company and they were out within an hour to try and scrub the pool, but the worker informed me that the pump and filter weren't really moving any water because the previous guests filled the pool and hot tub with LOTS of bubble bath and it completely clogged the filter. He said that he would install a new filter on Monday, and he did, but we couldn't use the pool at all for the first three days (and we paid for pool heat that wasn't refunded). There is a definite roach problem, and I told the owner about this and he responded with "it's common to find a few cock roaches in FL house...they will die within couple days in the house". We stay in Florida 2-3 weeks a year and have never had a roach problem.The fixtures in the bathrooms were also in really bad shape. One of them had a detachable handle that was almost nearly ripped off so we couldn't use that bathroom for a couple of days until they came out and replaced it.The house wasn't the dirtiest I've seen, but it was not what we are used to (the older chairs by the pool are neon green). The kitchen was fairly well stocked, but they need to do some random checks on what people steal because we cooked a pizza one night only to realize there are no pot holders to get the tray out of the oven. Overall the size of the house is fantastic for a large gathering, but we will be going back to the house we rented 11 months ago when we went to Disney then.
Had a wonderful family vacation.
We had a great location for a large family group and with several small children this house was ideal for us. There was plenty of sleeping space and the pool was a godsend for the kids at the end of a hot day. The development is located within 15 minute drive to all the Disney parking lots and the stores and shopping areas are convenient.
We are returning to WDW with the same family group next year and would consider the same or similar property.
A great experience
The property accommodated all of our family and met all of our needs. It was very well maintained. The staff was also very accommodating, along with the owner. We would visit again.
