When we visit the villa, we read through the guestbook to see what fun and experiences our guests have had at the villa and in Florida. Here is a small sample of some of the feedback we have had both from the guestbook and in e-mails etc There is also reviews left for us online elsewhere but due to terms and conditions of some sites we advertise on we are unable to publish that link here but if you still need convincing that this is the best home in the area for your trip and would like to see the reviews then please let us know.
“Sorry we've taken a while to reply, we've been back in the country for 2 weeks now and it has just flown by! Thanks for sending the security deposit back promptly and thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful villa! As mentioned we had family staying in two other villas in Emerald Island and despite them staying in similar sized villas they were amazed by the quality of the furnishing inside yours!! And also the large lanai and pool area!! They were all very jealous of us and were trying to get us to swap!! Many thanks again!”
Karl & Jenny Buckle, Nottingham UK
“A great location for all there is to do in and around the Orlando area. The villa is great, very luxurious with great amenities. Great beds!”
J McDonald, Southport UK
“We had a marvelous time at the villa. It was hard, at times, to get the children to go to the parks with all the activities they could do at the house. We'll certainly recommend it to those we know, and hope to use it again when we return to the Orlando area. Thank you again for all your hospitality.”
Mike & Connie Sizemore, Columbia USA
“I wanted to touch base with you to say that we had a great trip and everything at the house was perfect. The kids truly enjoyed themselves and though we were out each day the evenings were kept busy with the pool, games room and videos. The location also worked out great for us as well. We have recommended it to some other people that may look at it for their next vacation. Thank you very much for the professional and courteous way in which we were treated.”
J Smith, New Brunswick, Canada
“I would love the opportunity to stay in your villa should we visit the Disney area again, it met all of our needs and then some. We so enjoyed hanging out at the pool. I find myself smiling when I think about the fact that we had twelve people in your home and we never felt like we needed to hide because the floor plan was laid out so well.”
“I am a little curious... what kind of mattress do you have in the downstairs bedroom? I would love to have one in our home!”
ML Barry, Williams Bay, USA
“Your villa was excellent and provided us a wonderful 'home base' during our week long visit. We found everything to be 'as advertised' and in many cases to be even better. Highlights were the awesome screened in patio area, the game room for the kids and finally what I am sure you have heard very often......... great beds!”
Todd VanDenAvond, Minnessota, USA
“Thank you very much for the rental of your house, we all had a great time, loved the pool and are particularly missing the comfortable beds.”
P Twocock, Richmond UK
“We have really enjoyed our stay in the villa! Everything was very good (fantastic location)! Nice big house , very new and well equipped! We will surely come back within 2 or 3 years and we will also promote the house to our friends!”
Carolien Lugt, Rotterdam, Netherlands
“We had a fabulous vacation. The villa was everything we expected and more... perfect for our large group. It is truly a beautiful home away from home! We enjoyed it very much. I trust the condition was left as well or better than when we arrived. If you are ever in need of a reference I will be glad to brag on your behalf!”
Sandi Bothum, Abingdon MD USA
“We had a lovely holiday and thought that your villa was fantastic. I will definitely recommend it to any of my friends that are planning a trip to Florida.”
J Curran, Chelmsford UK
“We had a lovely time, and enjoyed the house so much (even more than the parks) – there was plenty of rooms and space for all of us. The kids loved the pool, and we enjoyed sitting around with our margaritas. Wish I was sitting there now . . .”
“Thanks so much for your hospitality and the use of your beautiful home!!”
K Kroeger, Colarado, USA
“We have had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. This was our first trip to Orlando with the whole family and we’ll be back!”
E Studnik, Miami, Florida
“We’ve been visiting homes in this area for the last six years and yours has been my favourite so far! There is nothing you have overlooked. From the games room to the beautiful pool (love the waterfall – nice touch!) to the comfortable beds at the end of a fun-filled day. We all had a wonderful time and look forward to sharing your home again!”
L Caron, Ontario, Canada
“What a beautiful house! The perfect vacation home. We had a great time. The furniture and décor are beautiful, the pool and fountain beautifully designed. Just perfect. Plenty of room to spread out and unwind after long days at the parks. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!”
K Russo, New York
“We just got back from our stay at your Villa. We had a great time, the place is so nice, everyone enjoyed it. You really have taken care to be sure that things are comfortable for anyone that visits your place. The safety measures with the pool/patio area were so great with the small kids- we really liked that. Thanks for allowing us to stay there. We had a wonderful time... and would definitely go back! We really had a great family vacation
Brenda Stewart and family, MA USA
“Our vacation was incredible. Your home was just perfect for our family - spacious and comfortable. Even when all thirteen of us were there together, we did not feel cramped. The kids loved the pool area, the game room, and their bedrooms. I thought the beds were luxurious. After walking our butts off in the parks every day, it was heaven to curl up in our bed at night. Your home offers all this and a short drive to Disney World, too. We could not have asked for anything more! You are providing a high quality vacation home that I would recommend to anyone. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. We wish you all the best.”
Jay and Stephany Yoder, PA USA
‘I've been meaning to e-mail, we had an absolutely wonderful time in Florida. The villa was probably the best part. All the kids had a wonderful time and loved the games room and pool. We didn't even use all of our park passes as the kids would rather be spending time back at the house than in the long lines at the parks. It was very busy on our second week. Basically everything was amazing, especially the thick beds.
If, or should I say.....when we come back, I'll definitely be giving you call.
Thanks again for making our holiday so comfortable and relaxing.’
Rhonda Young and family
‘Well it's back to work and I just wanted to thank you for letting us use your home in Orlando. We had a WONDERFUL time. Your house had everything we could possibly want, and like you said, the beds were so incredibly comfortable. Usually you can't wait to get home and get in your own bed, but I didn't want to leave yours. It was so hard leaving on Saturday, none of us were ready to go, we wished we could have stayed another week.
The pool area is incredible. I'm not usually one for pools but even I was in and just lounging around, and all the plantings did make it quite private.
Your location is perfect, it only took us minutes to get to shopping and Disney, and we liked the idea that there were no neighbours behind us.
We have only one suggestion, and that is it would be nice to have a light by the grill, it was kind of hard to see at night.
OwnerMsg - We are always open to ideas and lights have been installed.
All the women agreed that this was the best vacation we have taken so far. I just can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed it.’
Marie Leszek PA USA
“We had a wonderful time at the villa, you have a gorgeous home! The kids specially loved the games room which was incredibly equipped and the swimming pool with the waterfall which made it special and different from all the rest. The location of the house within the subdivision is excellent, with it backing to the lake giving it more privacy and the fact that it was so close to the Disney parks was fantastic. Even at the end of the day, with all the Disney exiting traffic, we were always back at the house within minutes.”
Lisa Merolla VA USA
“Greetings! I finally have time to write something for the guest book. The villa was wonderful! Tastefully decorated, with just enough! The beds were marvelous!! After three back surgeries it's hard to find a bed away from home that comforts and cradles you, well I did! We (all 11 of us) enjoyed our beds, the amenities, the game room and sitting out on the Lanai just listening to the waterfall at night was so relaxing! Everything was so close, 5 minutes or less! The children chased the lizards and laughed with delight, we the adults relaxed and enjoyed the laughter from the children. It was nice to leave the Disney dazzle behind and retreat to a comfortable home instead of a cold dreary hotel room. I would HIGHLY recommend this villa (in fact I already have) to everyone. We hope your stay is as great as our was. Thanks so much!”
Melissa Hinnen, Plainfield, Indiana
“This was a great house for a four generation family reunion, the location is great for all of the parks and every one of us loved the house and pool and game room. The kids said I had too much planned and would have liked to have spent at least one day at the villa!”
Kay McRay MD USA
“I just wanted to thank you for helping to make our vacation so enjoyable. You made renting your home a breeze and your home was just magnificent, the best we have ever stayed in. It was perfect for our families, great location, the kids LOVED the gameroom, and the big screen TV was great for watching the Rutgers game! we would recommend your home to anyone and would definitely come back if we had the opportunity. Also Sue (the caretaker) was great. Thanks so much and enjoy your own vacation.”
Laurie Eckert NJ USA
“I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful vacation we had last week at Disney. Our family loved your home and it was a perfect addition to the whole experience. The accommodations couldn’t have been more perfect. My two granddaughters had the fairy room and two grandsons the cowboy room. My other grandson shared the other twin room with his parents next door. I hope you found your home OK we were very careful to respect it. We hope to come back again in a couple of years and hope to rent your home again. If I know of anyone who is planning a family vacation, I will tell them to save the time researching the internet as I did because there isn’t another home of that size that provides the amenities that you do. Thanks again!”
Georgia Becher NJ USA
“We just wanted to say that we had the most fantastic vacation yet in Florida. As you know we go every year and can you confirm availability for next June when you get a second. Your place really is the most spectacular we have stayed in by far we really didn’t want to leave! Also the mid week clean was a godsend, it was fantastic going to Disney for the day and coming home to a clean fresh home and sheets! Thanks so much for the use of your villa we are so hoping to stay there again next year.”
Peter Nelson UK
“Can you please tell me what the name brand of the mattresses are that you have at the Emerald Villa? We have been searching and searching for them since we stayed at the villa, and have been unlucky at finding them. We haven’t had a good night sleep since the vacation!!! Please help!!!”
Traci Buckel OH USA
“We’re LOVING to stay at your house. It’s so pretty and comfortable! and also very well organized! we’re having a great time in our vacation and to stay here makes our trip even better. Everything is working perfectly!”
Eliana Pazzini - Brazil
“This was one of the most memorable vacations that my family has had in many years. the villa was exceptional since we had a family of 8 adults and eight children, ranging in age from eight years to nine months. The only problem we had was getting the children to leave the villa and go to the Disney parks. The game room was fantastic, as was the pool and the owners hospitality was exceptional. This was my sixty fifth birthday celebration and sharing this with my whole family was unbelievable. We could not have done this without your wonderful home >>>Emerald Villa. what a beautiful home! Thank you for your hospitality”
Ron Spaide PN USA
“Emerald Villa met all of our expectaions and more... Susan was wonderful and the mid-week clean is a great plus. We had a fabulous vacation and hope to book Emerald Villa again in the future”
