Can't say enough about the villa and Mo! Mo was such a pleasure to deal with. The villa is exactly as listed. But even more impressive when you actually see it! South facing pool is absolutely amazing. Beds were so comfortable. Can't say enough about the place. Conveniently located to nearby shopping, restaurants. We were a party of 12 and everyone was over the top pleased with the accommodations, location. Very spacious. Never felt crowded. The pool and hot tub were heated upon our arrival as per our request. We had an excellent vacation. If the group were to get together in the future there is no doubt as to who we would be contacting.....Thank you Mo.
Well what can I say, except - thank you Mo, to you and your family for allowing us to stay in your wonderful holiday home once again. If you are looking for a lovely place to stay run by a very efficient management company and owned by simply the nicest people you will deal with, this is the place for you.
We have visited Florida most years for the last twenty and stayed in many different locations in and around Kissimmee in that time. We decided to try the Emerald Isle reservation and Mo's place three years ago. We loved it so much that we wanted to return the following year but couldn't get the dates to match (I wrote a review after our first visit and I'd like to think it helped, because I may have been a victim of it becoming so popular that I couldn't get in!). I decided to book early for this year and we have just returned home. One of the first things I did was re-book for next year and organise our flights. So we are very much looking forward to going back next year again.
Ok, so why? The location of Emerald Isle is perfectly situated just off the 192. All the Disney parks and Disney Springs are right on the doorstep, highway 4 is minutes away which gets you to Universal or Florida Mall quickly and if you take the Osceola Parkway, which runs parallel with the 192 (and all the traffic) which is just one junction up World Drive, it will take you straight to The Loop, which is a fairly new shopping plaza in 15 minutes rather than 30. Also, villas themselves vary so much in standards of cleanliness, facilities and some we have stayed in make little effort to make the place warm and welcoming - it's just a holiday rental. That's not to say there are pictures of Mo's family everywhere but it feels very homely and natural, it is also fastidiously clean and well managed with everything you need (we have stayed in places where we have had to buy tin openers, scissors and even cooking utensils in the past). The villa has themed bedrooms such as a Harry Potter room, perfect for youngsters. Furniture has been replaced since we last went which keeps it fresh, modern and new. There is a games room with air hockey, darts and pool. There are always inflatables by the pool (which we have had to buy in many places), oh and the most comfortable beds in any villa we have stayed in. So, in short, it has everything you need to make your stay memorable and give you the perfect holiday home...
Hence the title of this review - it's a home from home... enjoy your stay!
Just 15 minutes from Disney. This beautiful huge house in a gated community easily accommodated our family of 11(6 adults, 5 children)..The lanai, heated pool, hot tub and game room were an integral part of our wonderful experience!!. Would give it 6 stars if I could!!
Fabulous property , well equipped with all you will need and more. Mo makes it easy to book, and is always helpful, genuinely wanting to do the best he can for you. No hesitation in recommending him and his home to others.
We were in town for a Dance competition and needed a large house for several mother/daughter pairs. This house was conveniently located to the Disney property where the competition was being hosted.
The pool and hot tub was a nice treat for our dancer's sore muscles after long days of competing. The mattresses on the beds were super comfy providing all a great night sleep. Bathroom's were large and spacious, a huge plus when 6 dancers are rushing to get ready and out the door early in the morning!
Best of all the owner was very responsive and accomodating. We had a last minute change and needed to change our dates , which was done without a problem.
We highly recommend this Villa rental and look forward to returning!
