The Airport

Upon exiting your X-Wing aircraft, you will enter U.S. immigration if you arrive from an international location. Please have your passport, required documents, and droids available for inspection. Citizens of the U.S., Canada and U.S. Visa Waiver countries that have been to the U.S. since 2008 have the option of using self-service kiosks to expedite the immigration process. Afterwards, you may retrieve your luggage and proceed to the Customs checkpoint.

When exiting the customs and immigration area you will have the option to either keep your checked bags with you or have them transferred to the main terminal for you to pick up there. If you use the courtesy baggage transfer option, simply follow signs to the correct baggage carousel for your flight which will be shown on the airport monitors.

Take the escalator up one level and board the train to transfer to the main terminal. The journey on the train will take 68 seconds. Car rental companies are located at the airport on the A-Side and B-Side of the Terminal on the Ground Transportation Level (Level 1).

We recommend renting a car from Alamo Car Rental and checking in early through their website. From baggage claim, take the elevator down to the 1st floor. Exit the terminal and cross the street to the garage to the reserved vehicle category and choose your vehicle.

About The Owner

I remember the first time I watched Star Wars. The first few seconds of that blue text on the screen: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

I've decorated my home to bring that far away galaxy just a little closer to us. Guests will not only enjoy the home's R2-D2, Stormtrooper, and will also enjoy the richness of the home's comfort, its vicinity to Disney World, and a stay in a modern home that will be as unforgettable as the first time I saw that blue text.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2016

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Wow - the home was even larger and more beautiful than in the photos. Stainless steel appliances, large pool, and super close to Disney. We'll be back, for sure.

Location Great, House OK

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house is very close to the parks and Walmart. Emerald Island Resort itself is very nice, secure and well kept. The Jedi House is ok, but not necessarily upscale. When we arrived, the house was not clean, especially the floors which turned our feet black within the first 30 minutes we were there. We swept and mopped the entire house because of the food crumbs and dirt stuck to the bottom of our feet. We contacted the owner who agreed that was unacceptable and he promptly refunded the cleaning fee. The kitchen and bathroom cabinets are pretty worn, and there are broken items such as some window blinds and appliances (toaster). Those things aside, the lanai and pool are very nice (although spa was not working due to a recent storm). The electric grill is a nice perk as well. Overall, after a rough start the rest of our stay was good. The owner is extremely responsive and good to work with. We are giving it a four-star, but it could be even better with some updates and a better cleaning company.

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy - Thank you for the kind words regarding your stay. As you mentioned, the home was not cleaned to my standards and I take responsibility for that. As a HomeAway Premier Host, there is no excuse for that and that is why I offered to send a different cleaning team out immediately and promptly refunded the entire cleaning fee. I have also changed the cleaning team and immediately upgraded the items you have mentioned. Thank you for recognizing my quick and satisfactory response to your concerns - my guests' satisfaction is my number one priority. I also appreciate your kind words regarding the home's amenities and features. I hope you return to the home and have an even more wonderful experience.

Great house close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

My family, which included myself, my husband, and 18 year old son spent 7 nights at Jedi Retreat. We arrived after midnight to a very clean, nicely themed home. This home had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and stress free. There were a couple of minor issues which were no fault of the owner. The internet was out locally which affected the spa heating. I notified Ahmed who responded immediately and sent someone out to override the system so that we could use the hot tub. I was impressed on how quickly Ahmed took care of the situation so that we could enjoy our vacation. He also kept us updated on the status of the internet outage. The home is just a short drive to Disney ( about 15 minutes) and Universal ( about 30 minutes) which was a plus considering we spent most of our days at the parks. We would definitely stay at Jedi Retreat again in the future! Thank you Ahmed for making sure our family had a wonderful vacation!

Best Disney Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was the key to our perfect Disney vacation! The host reached out to us before our trip to check on our plans and get an idea of what we were looking for in our stay. He provided extra touches that made our stay just amazing and had suggestions for just about anything we asked about. The accommodations were phenomenal and not just for Star Wars fans. We are already planning to return this summer!

Great stay - perfect for Star Wars mad kids

  • 4 of 5

Nicely themed place. Heated pool and spa were great in February. Only niggles were noisy neighbours and a few things which didn't work.

Owner's Response: Hi David - Many thanks for your kind words regarding the home and its amenities. As you mentioned, most guests choose to have the pool and spa heated. The recent system upgrade ensures that no matter the temperature outside, the pool and spa will be heated to each guest's preference. I'm disappointed to hear that there was trouble operating a few items. I take pride in responding quickly to any inquiries and mention in my welcome email that guests should not hesitate to ask any questions so that I may be of assistance. Unfortunately, I am not able to help out if I'm not informed. Thank you again for your stay.

Large, Clean, Themed Home Perfect for Disney Trip

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my family of 5 with a stay here, hoping that the Star Wars theme would delight the kids. It's fair to say I hit it out of the park. The home is one-story, which meant I didn't need to worry about anyone running off (or falling down). The pool and spa were extremely relaxing and worth being heated. The home was spotless and ready at check-in. In other words, we'll be back!

Check-in begins at 4PM, check-out is by 10AM. Pool and spa heating is available for an additional fee - please inquire when booking. No smoking.

Please do not bring any glass items into the immediate pool area. The front door remains locked when not in use.


All community regulations, including those regarding quiet hours, must be followed.


Children, however small, do count as guests for your booking. Because it is a secure community, only those listed on the reservation can be present in the home at any time. Names and ages of all guests must be shared when booking.


To ensure that all guests receive a deep cleaning service before and after their arrival, I regret that reservations may not start or end on major U.S. Holidays including Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. Guests who book in violation of this house rule will be required to initiate a cancellation of their reservation.


Please enjoy our kitchen and the utensils and appliances that are provided. To help keep cleaning costs at a reasonable level, please tidy up after cooking. Please do not rearrange any furniture without host approval.

Additional services that are provided due to violation of house rules are subject to guest fees, including for late check-out without prior approval. Pool & spa heating is available for an additional fee. The heater will be turned on the day you arrive and turned off on the day of departure. The heater operates on a timer you will be asked for your preference, 8AM-8PM or 8PM-8AM. Overnight low temperatures affect pool heating. A standard private swimming pool contains on average 10,000 gallons of water so heating it up is not instantaneous. A typical electric heater will generally raise the water temperature around 10 - 12 degrees per day and there will be some cooling off overnight when the air temperature drops. It's not unusual for a pool to take two days to reach it's optimal operating temperature of 86 degrees.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
