We had a wonderful stay at the Palm Oasis Villa in Emerald Island Resort. This clean, well-maintained, 7-bedroom home is in a great location on a beautiful street. Nicely decorated and spacious, it works well for a large extended family like ours (7 adults, 4 grandchildren). Each family had a king-sized master bedroom, ensuite bathroom, plus an extra bedroom and bathroom for their kids. Plus, they are great beds with lovely sheets!
You sense the pride of ownership with the attention to detail in this home. When we first entered, tables were set, towels were artfully displayed. The home has many amenities: flat-screen TVs, well-stocked kitchen (even plastic dishes for the kids), games room, a nice gas barbecue.
It's wonderful having your own south-facing, sun-all-day, private pool! We enjoyed many hours of fun out there. The extra-large pool deck has lots of chairs and loungers for a large group. Our little ones played for hours in the warm, bubbling spa pool. (So did Grandma and Grandpa!)
What makes this home stand out, though, in our opinion, is its gorgeous setting. An expansive backyard borders a large conservation area of towering pines. The view from the pool deck is amazing - just trees, sky and a lagoon off to one side. Our guys enjoyed many games of bocce ball back there - in spite of the resident alligator in the lagoon! (He didn't bother with anyone.)
You will find Mo, the owner, to be most accommodating, responsive to emails, and personable. It's a pleasure working with him.
We would highly recommend Palm Oasis Villa for your next vacation (knowing it may make it harder to book when we want to! Ha!)
Thanks for everything, Mo!

Situated just below Disney area, this home is in an enclosed, gated community with an impressive entrance. The house is quite large with a nice caged pool area and Lanai. Lots of bedrooms, capable of handling over a dozen guests with 2 lounge areas and large kitchen area. Game room is a pleasant distraction for children. Not as luxurious as I had been led to believe. Kitchen, bathrooms, and appliances are very basic with no luxury amenities. The house in general, is in good condition, but getting into details reveals the level of use it has endured. I understand everyone has their own opinion of luxury; this was my opinion. Mo however, is the best property owner I've had the pleasure of dealing with. He dealt with any issues with ease and professionalism. We had a great time overall!
Wow!!! That would truly be the word to describe this amazing villa! We flew from Utah for a family trip. We've stayed at Disney resorts before but decided to try a private home this time and WOW, WOW, WOW!! Honestly, this is the only way to vacation in Florida. And we will continue to do it from now on. The home is stunning! Absolutely beautiful. So much attention to detail. Clean, private backyard, and near everything. It only took us 5-10 minutes to get to Disney (and maybe 15-20 to get to Universal). Game room was perfect for our kids. So many great family meals around the kitchen table. Mo is such a great homeowner and always so responsive to any questions we had. Thank you Mo for taking such great care of us and your beautiful home. We've already reserved with Mo again for next year. Can't wait to go back!!
This villa was fantastic from the pool area to the comfy beds not forgetting the massive TV in the living room! The villa is very clean and situated in a great area. The club house is very convenient and staff are very helpful. Mo the owner is the best. If your looking for a great villa for your vacation I recommend staying in this one. It is the best one I have had the pleasure of staying in and I have stayed in many over the years. I truly hope to return next year.
We stayed at the Palm Oasis and truly enjoyed our stay. We had a group of 15 including two babies and it worked perfect for us. The pool and game room where great entertainment for the kids as well as the grown ups. There is a ton of room and we never felt crowded. It is located very close to Disney, if you can get the kids out of the pool. :) Mo was very responsive and a delight to work with! Great place to stay and we will recommend to family and friends and would absolutely stay there again!
