We love our home ,we bought it with intentions of retiring there but now we do not want to leave the grand children ,we go about 3 times a year and love when they come with us.

Maureen White purchased this villa in 2005

Why Maureen White chose Kissimmee

because it is one of the nearest resorts to Disney.

Emerald island is pristine , with a park, club house with tiki bar , gym and a full size pool.

Our pool looks out over the lake and conservation area with no rear neighbors, there

is nothing better than sitting out side first thing in the morning with a coffee and watching wild life and air balloons going over .

What makes this villa unique

everything you need is on your doorstep, there are more restaurants ,than you can count as well as shops and bars.

Would not recommend and would not stay again

  • 1 of 5

The good things I will say is that the location was great for our needs and the house was big enough. Additionally, in the beginning the communication was great, and that's about it.

First, I highly caution anyone in the US from staying here as Maureen lives in the UK and the pricing is in Euros. Somewhere in the conversion I was charged an extra $200 that I have yet to recoup and am assuming that is just gone.

Second, the house appeared clean the first day, but then we began to see roaches. We saw and killed approximately 8 roaches during our stay. When we saw the first one outside we didn't think much, killed it, and I didn't say anything. It was late the second night and since outdoors, we just let it go. In the middle that night we saw and killed 2 more roaches on the second floor and then another first thing in the morning in the downstairs master bedroom. I immediately reached out to Maureen and where she had previously been responsive, all the sudden I never heard from her again until I learned that I wouldn't be receiving part of my deposit back. I messaged her a number of times inquiring as to how to handle the roach situation and she never responded until after the trip was over and indicated we should have reached out to the property manager. She had been very responsive up to that point and it didn't cross my mind to communicate with anyone other than her. A quick "please contact the property manager" would have been nice.

Also, the pool is extremely small, the "spa" aka Hot Tub does not get hot, and the large jazuzzi looking tub in the master is just a big tub (not jets-just FYI). We were also very disappointed with the kitchen supplies to cook and store leftover food.

The owner complained that we were "dirty," but the only complaints were about things outdoors which is why we supposedly didn't receive $200 of the deposit back (so if you're keeping count, that's $400 I'm out between the conversion mix up on my credit card and the un-returned deposit). We bought a small grill to cook out while on vacation and intentionally left it thinking the next guests could use so they wouldn't have to go purchase one as we did since many of the houses furnish grills. We grill ALL the time at our own house and the cleanup is not what she described. The only point I'll give her is that the cigarette disposal (outside) was poor. My brother in law smokes and I truly didn't realize he was leaving a mess and would have intervened had I realized.

Great property great location for the Parks

  • 5 of 5

We selected this property due to it's proximity to the Disney and Universal parks and it was an ideal commute into them from here. The property itself was lovely, well maintained and clean with all the amenities you would expect along with some nice additional touches such as fresh flowers for our arrival. We were two families of four with teenagers and there was plenty of space to spread out and each of the bedrooms were a good size meaning there were no difficult decisions as to who got which room. The gated community itself was beautiful with immaculate landscaped areas which were constantly being worked on. We had our own pool so didn't use the communal one although we went to look at it and it seemed great. Would thoroughly recommend this property.

Spacious and great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described and very spacious. Emerald Islands is a lovely gated community very close to Disney and with a community clubhouse with gym and heated pool. Villa is located on the edge of the development with a lovely view out at the back onto conservation land. We were a group of 4 adults, each with our own master or double suite (with 2 twin bedrooms spare!). The villa would easily accommodate a much larger group than ours!

Amazing Holiday location

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described and beautifully presented. It really was a home from home and one of the best properties on Emerald Island Resort, which is a fabulous place to stay. Big thanks to Maureen for always being so approachable with all the numerous questions i had before our trip and thanks for being flexible around our visit dates. I cant recommend the house and location enough if you are wanting to do a very park based holiday, as you are a matter of minutes from the Disney parks, if you use the directions left in the house in the welcome pack. We crammed so much into our two weeks, but it was always lovely to come back to such a comfortable house and jump in the pool to cool off. Thanks again
