My family and I stayed a week. The home had all the comforts of home. Everything was clean and well maintained. Excellent location in close proximity to parks. Private pool and hot tub were a great way to spend days relaxing when not at the parks. Game room provided hours of fun for the kids. Penny was easy to get ahold of if need be and very responsive. We will certainly stay here again in the future.
Our family enjoyed our stay at Penny's home. The children (7 months, 7,8,9) absolutely loved the games room and the heated pool and hot tub. The home was clean upon arrival and had all of the necessary amenities in the kitchen to make meals easily. I recommend guests bring their own dish, laundry and hand soap as the prices near Disney aren't that great and so bringing stuff from home is more economical. the baby equipment like high chair and cot were also wonderful bonuses. The drive to Disney was quick and the restaurants near the resort are very convenient! Overall, can't wait to stay at the house again and would recommend to all. All of our communications with Penny were prompt and the booking and payment process was quite smooth.
We will be definitely returning to Penny's house, it had everything we needed to make our stay a home away from home. Perfectly located near the 192 to be within easy reach of the attractions, local shopping and restaurants. Great communication with the owner throughout the booking process. We would definitely this house. Thank you very much.
We LOVED staying at this house in Kissimmee. It was so comfortable for all of us, 3 adult and 5 kids, and we are already talking about next time. The house was clean, updated, and had every necessity that you could hope for. All the kids, (and my husband) especially loved the game room but the best was the pool! We all loved cooling off in the pool after a hot day at the parks. We did 5 days in Disney parks and the drive was very easy. It took maybe 15 minutes including Disney traffic to get to any park give or take. It wasn't a far drive at all. The house was also close to Target, Starbucks, Walgreens, grocery stores, gas, etc- anything you could need. Emerald Isle is a beautiful gated community, and we were very happy with all the other neighbors except one night there was some partying at 2 am in a neighboring yard but the community security took care of it and it was never an issue the rest of the week. Thank you Penny! Can't wait to come back!! Jen Connell
I can't say enough good things about our stay here. I have a wheelchair and it was easy for me to get around from place to place . Our kids loved the game room and the pool. The location of the house is fantastic . The location to the parks is no more than 10 mins. Thanks Penny for a fantastic stay !!
We had such an amazing stay! The game room was a huge hit with the kids. The games were great. Access to the parks was absolutely unbeatable!! It was easy to get to the parks and back to the house to relax. The pool was also great. The foliage surrounding it provided great privacy. Thanks for making our trip great!
We stayed for 2 weeks. The owner was terrific! The house was beautiful! The pool / hot tub/ game room were terrific! There was soo much to do!! The management company was great! The community was very well taken care of. Highly recommend it! Would stay again for sure! Worth every penny!
Our 2nd stay(Please see my other review) here in 2 years for a family of 4 including two daughters ages 9 and 11, and we love it! There's not one negative I can relate, and we have travelled all over the world using VRBO. (The one 3 star review here is a total bewilderment to me and well answered by Penny.) What else I can tell you since the last review? Everything in the home is tip top, clean and loaded for fun(6 TV's!). I believe Penny put in a beautiful wood floor in the main master and replaced the covers on the sofa. Last year, we had a record cold spell and still could swim; this year a warm spell. We visited the Magical Kingdom and Universal/IOA(3 days, bought the 2 get one free pass from Undercover Tourist)- minimal crowds, we got Gringott's in 5 minutes and Forbidden Journey a record 8 times w/o a wait. We enjoy Harry Potter and all the movies from the series along with many more plus 3D flicks are available at the house. There are list of grocers nearby: Winn Dixie, Publix, Taget the closest. I would drop off the family at DW and attend a conference at a Disney hotel( short cut gets you there in 8 minutes). We hit the minigolfs(clip a coupon from travel magazine; feed the aligators) in the evenings, take a swim, go to International Drive for Wonder Works and super Chinese food; drive an hour to the beach, birthday for eldest(make sure they get a button at DW parks) at Dinosaur restaurant in what used to be called Downtown Disney, play pool, pinball, swim, bbq, shop at all those cheesy giant giftshops, etc, etc.etc. The complex is clean, quiet, gated w/ security and beautiful. Beds comfy, plenty of hot water, air con, kitchen with all the cooking equipment needed plus. Penny is ever attentive and always ready to help. Her booking process totally painless. We'll be back next year- this time- to try her other house.
A well overdue review of our amazing time spent in Penny's amazing home from home villa. From the moment we sent the first email to Penny to the moment we left the villa every little detail was perfect. Communication was top notch right from the start. Any questions we had Penny replied right away, always a good sign of a good host & how right that was : ) The villa is amazing & has everything you could need for a fantastic stay. It was so clean throughout & attention to detail paid everywhere from sparkling laid out dinnerware on the dining table to information on places to go & take away menu's (that deliver to villa) which we did indulge in after a long day at the parks ! .... oh & the BBQ & pool area .... what a fabulous place to chill out (when we had a spare few hours) lol ! lots of inflatables & pool toys included so heaps of fun : ) The villa's location was spot on. So easy to get to everything from there, the closest supermarket was Winn Dixie that sold all your necessities & further away Publix ... fab for all that BBQ food ; ) ... all the parks were in easy reach Magic Kingdom being the closest & Universal being the furthest. I can honestly say that me & my family had the most magical time at this villa & all it has to offer, it was the saddest of days when we had to leave. Thank you so much Penny for your very thoughtful hospitality & we really hope to stay at your beautiful Enchanted Getaway again real soon : ))
My family and I loved staying at this house. Penny was always available to answer any of my questions. The house was spacious and we loved the pool and game room. Great location! Really close to the parks. Very secure neighborhood. The house was very clean and well-maintained. We will definitely be staying at this house again in the future. I strongly recommend staying at this property!
Wow.. after doing a lot of research on places to stay in the Kissimmee area we could have not chosen a more perfect home for our vacation! This home was very comfortable, (the beds especially) clean, and updated. There was 3 adults and 2 children in our party and we all had our own space. My kids loved the games room and the swimming pool. The location was superb, thank you Penny for sharing your home with us, we hope to return very soon!
Having travelled via VRBO all over the world with family including 2 kids, you just can't beat this place for price, location, amenities and service. The reviews and filled calender say it all. What more can I say: Emerald Island Resort is gated and nicely kept up. There's a beautiful entry way with dophins and fountains. The guard lets you in and there's a rec center with pool, small arcade and tiki bar, plus weekly entertainment, e.g. karoke night. Nearby convenient Winn Dixie foodstore, but I can't recommend the Chinese restaurant next door. The main drag 192 offers cheap, giant gift shops, cute mini-golfs everywhere, and Medieval Times which our kids loved, down the road. A quick back route takes you to Disney. One day, I and one daughter, needing a Park break, dropped off wife and other daughter at Magic Kingdom- go thru MK parking booths, stay right, tell them you're dropping off, it's free and nobody else does it. Daughter and I stayed at the house to swim, pick them up later. Universal, my favorite, 20 minutes via highway. Go early to the parks, use Fast Pass+ at Disney. If possible choose a quiet time of the year. Our waits were no longer than 20 minutes per ride. Eat lunch early around 10:30-11:00AM, e.g. at "3 Broomsticks" or "Leaky Cauldron" if at HPland. Be smart, rest, enjoy yourself or just go back to the wonderful house and kick back. Penny provides all the info you need. Front door uses a punch code; great soccer pinball- if flippers stick- be patient- a ball will free them up. Pool a good temp.- we arrived during a record low- and still could use it. Pool cover helps. All backdoors have pool alarm if someone opens it plus fencing about pool- lights at night. Easy to use BBQ. Quiet clean neightboorhood. VIP trash pickup- they curb it for you. We watched a family of flamingoes? strolling down the sidewalk. 1 hour to Cocoa Beach and ocean. Too much to do here- will return next year. Neat place, comfy beds- Penny makes it easy and efficient to rent.
We were very pleased with this home! There were two families with 4 children total, ages 6 and 3. The game room and pool were a big hit after coming home from the parks! There was plenty of space for everyone to relax and rest after the busyness of the parks. We loved having our own kitchen and we used the grill 3 times! We were all very sad to leave! We would definitely go back again and would recommend this house to everyone. It is also very convenient to the parks, restaurants, and grocery stores. Penny was very nice and sent a packet of helpful information with directions to the parks and grocery stores.
This house had everything we needed and then some! My kids LOVED the house more than Disney! Everyday my kids wanted to just go back to the house to swim, watch 3D movies, play videogames, and play in game room. I would recommend this house to anyone and everyone! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy this perfect vacation house! We will definitely be coming back soon!!
Our vacation week was great and renting this home was a big plus! The seasonal touches added warmth - Christmas wreath on the front door and the lighted Christmas tree when we walked in. The home is comfortable, well stocked with linens, pool towels, pool toys and the kids loved the game room. My grandchildren wanted to know if they could live there forever! The kitchen is well stocked; the appliances are top of the line. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated. Beds are super comfortable. I could just go on and on. Definitely a home away from home. Cory & Penny - thanks for a lovely and comfortable vacation home! This is the second time we have stayed in this community. The landscaping is well manicured. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Nice playground for the kids. Conveniently located to Disney and other restaurants and shopping.
We had lots of choice - previously stayed at Windsor Palms - but are glad we chose this house. Everything is as it states and the pictures are up to date and correct. There was more than enough room for 6 of us and would have no hesitation in recommending this house for you to rent. Penny the owner was excellent at responding instantly to any query we had prior and during the rental period. A great time was had by all.
I would unreservedly recommend this holiday villa. As others have said the photographs and description are completely accurate. The home is really well equipped and many of the fixtures and fittings are top quality and are better than you would normally expect to find in a rental property. My sons loved the 3D Television and the selection of 3D movies to watch in the evening many of which have been carefully selected as they relate to the rides and attractions you are likely to see in the parks. The games room is well equipped and crucially is air-conditioned with a separate unit - many of the converted games rooms in what was the garage are unusably hot in other properties. On arrival the villa was clean and well presented. There is a useful guide to local attractions and the property itself. The air conditioning was on and functioning perfectly and we didn't have to touch any of the controls all week. The pool was spotlessly clean and was a great way to cool down after a day in the local parks. There are loads of good local restaurants and a supermarket within a few minutes drive of the resort's front gates. Emerald Island itself is beautifully maintained and feels safe and secure. The gate security staff are efficient and courteous and the check-in procedure is quick and stress-free when you arrive. The gym at the resident's club is well equipped and opens at 8am sharp if you're in the mood for a quick workout, run or session on the cross-trainer. We had friends staying at another villa on the same road at the same time and perhaps the best recommendation I can give is that they were very envious of 'our' property and wished they had chosen Penny's home instead of theirs. Don't hesitate to book this property you won't be disappointed. Simon W London UK
I believe this is the first time that I posted a review online. After our vacation in Penny's home at the Emerald Island Resort I just had to pass along what a terrific home this is. We have rented homes in the past on VRBO and this was by far the cleanest and most comfortable upon arrival. Penny has done just an incredible job from the furnishings to the game systems to the fully equipped game room. Our 3 girls were actually content with skipping the parks and just enjoying the comforts of the home. As others have mentioned, the 3D television PS3 and XBOX were all very popular. The pinball machine and air hockey was also a great deal of fun. When traveling with my family I am always mindful of their security. Emerald Island Resort is a very beautiful and secure community. There is only one way in and one way out and that entrance in manned by security. This home is as described and so much more. Also Penny was very prompt in answering any questions or addressing any problems. She is a very responsible owner. You will not regret renting this property.
Wow!!! Words can't describe how amazing this home was. We have rented homes in this gated community for the last 3 years and each home impresses us more and more. This home was perfect we had 5 adults and 4 children under the age of 6. Plenty of room everything was as expected if not better in person, we were amazed the minute we walked through the door. Beautifully decorated and extremely welcoming we didn't want to leave. There was so much for the children to do in this home from all the gaming systems to the absolutely amazing 3D television which now we want, to all the extras, board games, pool toys, dvds, air hockey table, pool table, pin ball machine I could go on. This home is so inviting,clean, and comfortable to be in. Penny your home is incredible and we will always keep this home on our list when we return and definitely will refer friends and family. We love how close everything is to this gated community your home is in. All the Disney Parks, Downtown Disney, The Premium Outlet Shops, Target, Walmart, Grocery Stores, and Restaurants are all nearby. Love Love Loved it! P.S. the book everyone signs at the end of their stay with their stories, memories,etc is such an awesome idea,every home should do that. Thank you again and we look forward to a future return. Christine,Dave,Carson & Colten Jeff & Karen Holly, Betsy and Megan Wisconsin
This home was absolutely beautiful and we were so glad we chose a home over a hotel for our first trip to Disney and Orlando. Everything you need is in the home, they've thought of everything. The house was spotlessly clean and so convenient to everywhere!! The guarded entrance was a great comfort, same with the screened in pool area, and management so professional. As much as the houses are close together, you do not even notice it on your screened in pool area. The king size bed was so comfortable to sleep on it was hard to get up!!! Our kids loved the games room and pool. Great job Penny and Homeaway, we'll be back!!!
Brilliant home. Is as good, or better than the photos and videos show. Has everything you might need and more. The location is brilliant, just a short drive to lots of stores and restaurants and just a little further to WDW. You can be on a Disney parking lot from leaving the door within 10 minutes. Emerald Island is really nice and feels very safe and secure, all areas are very well look after and the entrance security guards and clubhouse staff are really helpful. We are from the UK and unfortuantely cant visit all that often, but next time we will try and stay here again if its available. We are now converted from hotels (even Disney hotels) as this is so close to the action and so much more flexible. 10 out of 10. Thank you Penny.
I can't say enough good things. We really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and everything that was promised was there. It was a pleasure to come home to such a beautiful place after a long day in the park. My 3 year old loved the pool and the house was very safe for my 9 month old. We loved the games room. Everything was clean and so well organized. The Disney decor was an added bonus for the kids. The entertainment/technology was incredible. The owner was so quick in responding to questions before our arrival. We received a package from the owner before our arrival with directions, tips, and Orlando information. We had not seen this before. Our biggest highlight was the hot tub after a long day in the park. You feel safe in the gated community. The owner has many baby items for use which really came in handy when travelling from Canada. I would go back in a flash.
Wow I was amazed with this property. Everything we could possibly need for our stay was available. The house was very modern and clean. We were only 3 miles from Disney, 2miles from restaurants, gift shops, and grocery stores. I will definitely recommend this property to all of my friends and family.
This home has it all. Whether you would like to read a book, watch a 3D movie, relax by the pool, or partake in a game of pool, air hockey, or pinball, this is THE place to vacation with the family. The home gave us the room we needed but kept its cozy atmosphere. Its quiet, secluded location away from the noise and traffic is still close to all the area's attractions. The resort's grounds are immaculate and adorned with fountains and walking paths as well as a well equipped clubhouse. We never wanted to leave and will positively recommend it to our family and friends. Thank you again for your hospitality!!!
My family and I stayed at the house during spring break weekend. I am so glad we chose to go this route instead of staying on disney property! The parks were so crowded it was a relief to come back to the house every evening and relax in our own pool and hot tub. Even with the large crowds at the parks it was an easy and quick trip to get to each of the Disney Propertys as well as Universal. This house was very clean and had every amenity you could think of to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. We did not have any infants or toddlers in our party, but if we had we wouldn't have had to bring any of the usual bulky stuff. High chairs, baby monitors, strollers, etc. were all already provided at the house. My kids did enjoy the game room with the air hockey and pinball. I would highly recommend this property!
The house was absolutely wonderful. It was in a safe, secure gated community, just minutes from Disney theme parks. The house was roomy, cute, organized, and clean. I would highly recommend this property to anyone with or without children. We had a great time!
Penny's home is AMAZING. It really was the perfect place to come back to after some long days at the parks. The kids (who were 5, 3 and 2) LOVED the little toy area with the kitchen and other toys. Penny has thought of everything to make it a very enjoyable stay for all ages. You can tell that they take pride in their home and it makes you feel that much more relaxed on vacation. We had an issue with the heat in the hot tub (we didn't realize we needed to turn the dial on to get the heat in the spa but it was also VERY cold outside and just took a few extra minutes to warm up) but Penny called us right back to make sure everything was okay. She provided first class service in a first class home. This is a gem of a find and I have no doubt that when people see how amazing this home is it will be booked up solid. I selfishly hope not as we would love to come back again. Thank you Penny for providing all the necessities and making our trip smooth and comfortable. You have a beautiful home that you have decorated with not only amazing comfortable bedding (no scratchy yucky sheets or blankets in this house!) but also everything a person could need. You've got some fans in Canada who will definitely be back.
We arrived to a warm inviting home that was nearly "too good to be true." The home had everything we had hoped for and more! We own timeshares so had come to expect certain items be available. It was a wonderful surprise to discover so much more [listed below for others with similar experiences:] -more than sufficient linens, bath towels and pool towels (so fluffy and soft too) -the kitchen has multiple small appliances - we even made smoothies in the blender! -enough dinner ware that you could fill the dishwasher and still have more to use -there were storage containers to keep leftovers for the next day (unheard of anywhere else we've stayed) -the highest quality of furnishings in every room; be sure to try the recliners in the leather sofa in the living area. -a huge 3D HD television in the living area with 3D glasses for 8 and movies to watch (a big hit!) -a private heated pool with all the pool toys anyone could want! -the private games room was another huge hit with our grandchildren. They learned to play pool from their Grandfather, played air hockey and the pinball machine (Just say WOW!) -clean as a whistle with no bits of others left behind, and -no additional fees! Lastly, and so important, Penny and her husband have been the nicest people to work with. Asking a last minute question was not a problem. They genuinely care about those they are sharing their home with. You will not be disappointed (assuming there are times available when you visit Kissimmee) to stay here!!! This propery and its owners rate a 20/10 were it possible. Should we return to Kissimmee, this is the first place we would hope to stay. Thanks SO VERY MUCH, Penny, for contributing to our awesome, amazing vacation. Laurie, Richard and extended family
We spend 5 night on December of 2011 for a family reunion and for visit Disney world . The house is very close to the Disney park, about 5 min. Also very close two supermarkets and target in case you need groceries. The house is a five star villa with all amenities, own pool, jacuzzi, Flat Tv's in each room, game room and even a 3D movies. Beutiful house very well maintained. We high recommended this property because I did a lot of research before I rented. We planning to come Back.. Thank you Juan
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this house during Thanksgiving week. The amenities were second to none as we took advantage of all of them. The adults and children both spent a lot of time in the game room which had a great pinball machine, pool table and Wii. We also really enjoyed the 3D TV and it came with many movies and working 3D glasses to watch. We have rented houses in the past that were short on utensils, towels, etc.... That was definitely not the case with this house as you had more than enough glasses, silverware, plates, towels, pool towels, etc... They have really gone out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, which some people take for granted. The bedrooms are comfortable, one of the rooms had a play station and it included several games. We didn't have a baby, but noticed many items stored in case you were bringing a little one to the house. They have pretty much thought about everything you would need to enjoy an extended time in this house. I would definitely recommend this house for your vacation and we would stay again if the opportunity arises.
My wife and I, our three children (11, 8, and 7) and my mother-in-law had a wonderful week-long stay at this home. The Emerald Island location is so convenient to everything in Orlando, especially the Disney parks. The home itself is perfect for a family with children with ALL the extras that made our stay so enjoyable. The house was very clean, everything was in working order, and even though we couldn't access the wireless internet the first day we were there, it was immediately addressed the next day by the owner and we never had a problem again. The home was well stocked, everything was carefully labeled to explain how it worked, and the neighborhood was very quiet. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great home to rent while on vacation in Orlando.
First of all, the owner was great to do business with! The house was absolutely beautiful. It is very clean, neat, and had everything that we needed. The kids had a great time playing the Pinball machine and swimming in the warm pool. We are already planning our next trip back for a longer stay.
There weren't many reviews about this house, so I was a little bit hesitant to book it, but I am so glad we did.The location was the biggest selling point - and it was as advertised! We could get to any of the Disney parks within 10 minutes with very little traffic. There are several eating places and a great grocery store at the SuperTarget just a few miles away. The family loved the pool and the house provided all of us with enough space for some to sleep and some to play. We will be back. If you want a clean, comfortable home and want to be close to Disney, then this home is for you.
