Had to write a few words about this impressive house we rented recently for our trip to Kissimmee during Easter of 2016. 10 of us in three family groups, so space was important and Emerald Retreat at the Emerald Island Community didn’t let us down. If you are looking for the ideal home to explore the Disney Parks then don’t look any further, from the house to the parks was a 5-10 minute car journey, so you wont get much closer.
The community is hidden away, but feels safe and secure with security on the gate, which is not obtrusive, and entry and exit is simple using the card entry system.
We didn’t sample the clubhouse but looked around and it boasts all you would need from a bar to a gym and communal pool.
Emerald Retreat is ideally situated and is not overlooked, so privacy is guaranteed, your view from the rear pool deck is of a wildlife conservation area and we spotted raccoons, eagles and woodpeckers amongst other creatures during our stay.
The house as mentioned is easily large enough to house 10 people comfortably, with area for the kids and adults to get some privacy, the games room in the garage is a bonus and a good wind down at the end of a Disney day.
All rooms are furnished to a high standard and the extras of a great sound system and TVs were welcome. The kitchen has everything you could want and the outside industrial BBQ was a joy.
Onto the pool and what a pool, a spa area and kids pool and the main pool area are fantastic and a great place to relax and unwind, with plenty of loungers and chairs as well as the outside seating for a late night beer or three!
A special mention to the team at LoyaltyUSA who look after the property, nothing was too much trouble and a temporary problem with the pool lights not working was rectified almost immediately and nothing was too much trouble, thanks Yvonne and team, a highly recommended company.
Don’t think twice, a fantastic property in a fantastic location, looking forward to our next trip out.
