““Awesome Central Florida Vacation Home””
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The House fit our needs to a tee, traveling as 6 adults, 2 pre teens, and 2 infants, Sri made sure
all of our needs were met. The house was super clean, and all amenities were in excellent condition.
The Management Company, Emerald Island Personnel, as well as Sri were very responsive to any issues.
The kids and infants totally enjoyed our private in ground pool, as well as the spaciousness of the house.

Emerald Island Resort was Top Notch and within a very short drive of Disney Parks, as well as shopping and restaurants. Sri’s directions to all attractions were invaluable.

Looking forward to renting from Sri on our next Disney Family Vacation

“Excellent vacation home in a great location!”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our extended family of seven (five adults and two tweens) stayed at Emerald Magic during school vacation week. The owner was highly responsive throughout the whole booking process as well as during the stay. We were impressed with the cleanliness and comfort of the home. (The kitchen had been recently upgraded and new furniture purchased for the living room area, I believe.) We all loved having our own space to retreat to (and the kids thought having a TV and DVD player in their bedroom was the ultimate vacation luxury). When an issue arose with the heat during a cold snap, the management company responded extremely quickly by sending out one of their employees who then had a licensed technician come by to fix it before the day was out. You could not have asked for a more timely or helpful response! Another plus over other vacation homes we stayed in: the trash valet. Typically, a renter has to remember to put out the trash and recycling bins out on the appropriate day. Here, they have someone come by and put them out and take them in at the appropriate times. It made vacation even more relaxing! The location of the Emerald Island resort is perfect: it's an easy drive to all the Disney parks (10 to 20 minutes depending on the exact park) and Universal Orlando (30 minutes) as well. The lanai, pool, and spa were wonderful. The heat allowed us to swim even on the cooler days. All in all, we had a relaxing, fantastic vacation in a great home. Thanks!

We are pleased to be part of a memorable vacation of this family. We understand our guests and their needs and stand behind our villas with commitment to make any issues disappear as fast as we can. As stated by this guest, all our villas are a short 10 minute drive from Disney World. This villa has had many upgrades such as new furniture, new kitchen counter tops and more. We thank this guest for noticing these upgrades. They have been great guests to deal with and we welcome them back to stay in one of our vacation homes when they are in the Orlando/Kissimmee area.

“Great stay, great value”
Reviewed 11 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I travelled to Orlando with my immediate and some extended family; 4 adults and 2 kids under 2 years old. This was a Disney-oriented trip, so the first plus is that this place is about 15 minutes from Disney. If you plan on going to the parks, its about a 15 minute drive and traffic was not a problem (be careful at rush hour though!)

I had a car, so it was very close to a supermarket, familiar chain restaurants, and all the major highways.

The community was very nice, very clean, and not on a very busy road. Being set away from a major road was a big plus for me, that takes away from the vacation experience. A few known food delivery restaurants are near by (we tried Pizza Hut).

The house was really nice! We had a bedroom for each person and plenty of living space. There's even a game room if you have any energy at the end of the day. The house comes equipped with dishes, utensils, pots/pans, just about anything you'd need to prepare real meals. Wherever possible, not eating at the parks will save you a fortune. You'll likely need to buy/bring some dish soap, cleaning materials, coffee filters etc but they did have a few items to start us off when we arrived (unsure if this is standard, or if last guest left it). They have a pool which is great, though if you have 40 degree nights in the wintertime you might not want to bother with trying to heat the pool. There's only so much the heater can do! It has a security alarm and controlled entrance to the property, so we always felt very safe. The plus there is that you don't have to pick up a key! You get a temporary electronic key code to enter the house before you arrive. Some other properties make you go to their office, can be really out of the way.

The house also came stocked with great amenities for families with children; a high chair, pack-n-play, crib, and stroller! We brought too much with us! That was huge!

I also thought the owner was great. He was Johnny-on-the-spot with every question we had, issue we wanted to discuss, and request I made. He genuinely cared that everything went well; very personable and great to do business with.

Overall, I think I'm done staying at the parks. Having a house gives everyone more space, allows you to have a more vacation-like pace to your days, lets you cook meals that will be better than you'll get at the parks, and will actually save you money depending on how many people you're traveling with. My next stay in Orlando, with or without the extended family, we'll be calling the owner of this property!

Only thing to remember is the fact that you have more room means you'll have more to clean the day before you leave (more space usually means bigger mess in my family!). You don't need to do windows/floors or anything like that, but clean the grill if you used it or do the dishes you used. It's a bit more work, but well worth it in my opinion.

Our goal is to meet or exceed the needs of our guests - one guest at a time so that they don't have to look elsewhere for their future Disney area rental needs. We treated this guest no differently and we are pleased to know their future intentions to rent from us. As stated by this guest, our vacation homes provide more space and many amenities such as strollers, BBQ grills etc at no cost and are affordable alternatives to on-site suites in theme parks.

This family has been great to have and we welcome them in the future anytime.

“Awesome property with plenty of room to lose the kids!”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We really enjoyed our stay and the property more than met our expectations. We traveled with two of our children ages 11 and 13 and my wife's parents. The property is nicely decorated and well equipped for any vacation traveler. We enjoyed the pool, game room, and TV's in every room. The kids stayed occupied and with so much room it really made for a great vacation. My only regret is spending too much time at the theme parks when I was really wanting to kick back and relax at this wonderful home! I would not hesitate to book this property again and writing this review has me thinking we need to plan another trip to Kissimmee soon! I must tip my hat to the property manager Sri, he made the rental process very easy, he called and checked on us after we arrived, and he was always available when I had questions. If you are considering this rental I HIGHLY recommend it!
