Just back after two weeks staying in Paul and Lin's villa. Ourselves, son, daughter-in-law and grandsons aged 3 and 8. Villa is well managed and in exceptional condition for it's age. Emerald Island resort is an ideal location close to Disney and all 192 facilities. Access to the resort is secure and by swipe card. The villa itself is ideal for 4 adults and up to 4 children. Well equipped with televisions in lounge and all bedrooms. The garage has been converted into a games room with table tennis, table football and air hockey. Also PS4 attached to the main television which eldest grandson enjoyed every morning over breakfast. The pool was large enough for us all to enjoy and not having a spa pool at the end we found made it more spacious. Would highly recommend the villa and when we all go again will be the first villa we look for availability. Communication with Paul was excellent and the whole booking and arrival process was very easy.
We stayed in Paul and Lin's villa for two weeks at the end of September. From the minute we walked fhrough the doors it felt like a home from home, perfect for what we needed and a brilliant location. A couple of minor issues which meant that the management company visited, but everything was rectified swiftly. Couldn't recommend the villa more, Paul made the process very simple, quickly responding to even my smallest of questions.
Spent 16 nights in this lovely villa. Its brilliantly located on Emerald Island and is not directly backed onto by other villas, giving a pleasant outlook from the pool area which is also nicely screened by plants. Master Bedroom ensuite has a door directly to pool area which is really handy for showering off when finished in pool.
We found the pictures of the pool gave us the impression that it was quite small, but as there was no hot tub, the pool was in fact bigger than some others on the complex that do have a hot tub. Nice open spacious living/dining/kitchen area. Some interesting wildlife visited us during our stay! (Whooping crane, Racoon, lizards, mini frogs and an Armadillo living next door but never caught sight of him!). Two small family's could stay here comfortably, but as one small family of 3, we found it perfect rather than a hotel or apartment stay any day. Close to Formosa gardens & easy access to all the eateries on the 192. 5mins from Sherberth Road shortcut to Disney area.
We are just back from a wonderful 2 week holiday in Orlando staying in this great villa. It is so convenient for all the parks and on a lovely gated community. The villa had everything we needed and was nicely furnished and decorated. Enjoyed using the pool which was lovely and warm as we had opted for the pool heating, being October. We made good use of the games room, and the wi-fi was very useful. There are lots of shops and restaurants all within easy reach. Would highly recommend this villa for people coming to Orlando for the parks.
Date of Stay: October 2013

Hi we stayed here a few years ago now,only just started using dibbs so sorry about the late review! This villa is very clean and well looked after,beautifully decorated and spacious,we had seven staying here but still we could all find a quiet corner to escape to when needed! Our kids absolutely loved the pool and games room which made it easier for us to get out of the parks on the evenings. It is really close to Disney and lots of restaurants etc.There were more than enough cups,pots etc in the kitchen for all of us. Altogether a lovely place to stay!
