Just returned from a 9 night stay at Emerald Hunny Pot (following on from 6 nights on-site at Disney), and had a wonderful stay. Four adults had more than enough room, everything was as described and shown in the photos, and the resort itself was very well maintained.
We paid for pool heating, and made the most of it on the occasions we were not in the parks. Also pleasantly surprised at how little extra time it took us to reach the Disney parks compared to our All Stars location the previous week.
And as a bonus, the laundry facilities meant that we arrived home with minimal washing to be done.
First class communication with Mike and Lucy from the initial enquiry right the way through to the start of our stay, and a special thanks for arranging a late check out on our departure day. We also had a couple of very minor issues, which the management company responded to almost immediately, neither of which caused us any problems during our stay.
Our luxurious family & extremely child friendly private villa has 4 bedrooms (2 master en-suite), 3 bathrooms and a fully equipped games room. Our private heated pool and hot tub/jacuzzi offer hours of fun, and the large furnished patio area, offers plenty of space to enjoy the gorgeous Florida sun! Guests also have access to FREE WiFi internet access should you wish to bring your own internet devices. Our villa offers all the comforts of home!
The villa: As you enter our beautiful villa, you will love the spacious feeling of the tastefully decorated open plan and airy lounge/family room area, which is a great place to relax and recover from the parks. It houses a formal dining area with elegantly decorated table, both with plenty of comfortable seating.
The Family Room: The lounge area incorporates a large 42” TV with Cable, a DVD player, a stereo and a selection of books and board games.

The pool area is easily accessible via the sliding patio doors.
The King Master Bedroom: The tastefully high-end decorated master king bedroom is home to huge king size bed (a UK super king size), a large walk in closet (wardrobe), with lots of hanging space and shelves.

What better way to enjoy Florida than to “live the American dream” and enjoy your own home for a couple of weeks!

This is one of the closest residential communities to Walt Disney World's four theme parks making it a much sought after location. All other major theme parks are easily accessible.
