We’ve just checked out of your villa this morning, and wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful stay in your home! It’s a beautiful villa, and we felt very grateful to have so many home comforts and lots on offer to keep us occupied.


We loved that it was homely, safe and the space was great. Also, the private pool was wonderful and we went in the pool twice a day. We didn’t use the spa much but when we did it was lovely and warm. The DVD’s, children’s books and games are a great addition.
We loved our time staying at the villa, it was so easy to get to all of the parks and there are an abundance of restaurants and supermarkets within a few minutes drive. The pool area was great and it was a lovely space to relax in the evenings. My daughter had a great time looking at all the books, toys and DVD’s. Thank you for a great stay.


We are now reluctantly home and straight back to work following a superb holiday in Orlando. The villa was as lovely as we remember, very clean and comfortable and well equipped. A real home from home and we thank you once again for letting us rent it.


Thank you Mike, Lucy and family for a wonderful stay In your lovely villa. We wanted for nothing during our 11 night stay, everything we needed for a perfect Florida theme park holday was provided, a beautiful heated pool and spa for relaxing in, a games room for family table tennis and pool championships, a fully stocked Kitchen equipped for preparing meals and comfy beds for a well earned nights sleep after a busy day at the parks. Emerald Island resort Is withinn easy reach to all theme parks with Disney's Animal Kingdom only a five minute drive away and perfectly located, very close to supermarkets and restaurants. We used the club house facilities on our checkout day as we had a late flight home and found this very convenient. We would not hesitate to stay at both Emerald Island and the lovely Emerald honeypot villa If or when we return to Florida again.
Regards Gerry, Sarah, Joe and Matt McManus

The McManus Family , 

We had an amazing 2 weeks here - everything that you could need. Pristine accommodation, lovely community, fab location. I can’t recommend enough and we will be returning soon.

Woods Family, 

An absolutely amazing villa on the doorstep of Disney. This amazing villa is well situated near all the main theme parks and tourist attractions in Florida while still being in a peaceful and secluded area. Terrific attention to detail has been made to ensure every luxury and comfort is provided, and creating a true feeling of home away from home! Having a private pool and Jacuzzi was a wonderful way to end our fun filled days. We would have no hesitation to book this villa again or recommend it to friends and family.

Hasan family, 

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful villa. You really do have a fantastic home with all of the amenities you could wish for. We wanted for nothing at all.


We booked Emerald Hunny Pot in 2016 for a family holiday (me, wife, 3 children, 16, 13 and 11) in October 2017. We had stayed on the Emerald Island resort on a previous holiday and loved the location so it was great to find an affordable family home in the same place.

Pre-holiday – communication with the owners was excellent. They handled any queries promptly and efficiently and set out when exactly payments would be required to complete the rental including having a number of payment options. Once all payments had been made and the rental finalised we received a wealth of information on the villa, the resort and also many many tips and detailed information on both the surrounding area and indeed the wider central Florida region. While some of it was already known due to previous visits, plenty of it wasn’t and indeed if you are a first time visitor then its as ideal as any guidebook could be in preparing you for an Orlando holiday.

Check in at the Emerald Island resort was smooth as was entry to the villa, the owners provide all your entry details in advance of you arriving.

There is always some doubts that may sit in your mind when you arrive at a property for the first time. Pictures on websites can only give you so much information. However I can say that the pictures on TA probably didn’t do this property justice. Its beautiful and was spotless on arrival. After a long flight from the UK you just want to get to you property and relax without any worries, well this is the ideal option for that in my opinion. We arrived and felt immediately at home.

The villa itself is beautifully presented and has all the requirements you would want for a family home on holiday. Spacious living room, 4 very well sized bedrooms, plenty of storage space, 3 separate bathrooms and an ideal sized kitchen with an excellent fridge/freezer to hold all your required cold drinks when you want to cool down from the hot Florida sun. At no point did myself, wife and sons ever feel we were living on top of each other, its definitely spacious whether everyone is in the same room or separate rooms.

Been a keen sports fan I had the pleasure of cable TV throughout the house with more than enough sports channels to keep me happy for both versions of football – “soccer” and American. And the ability to watch different channels in the bedroom than what was on in the living room.

Beds were large and luxurious in the main and second bedroom, and my two sons who each had their own rooms in bedrooms 3 and 4 slept well and comfortably in the single beds.

Outdoors we had the joy of a well sized swimming pool in our back yard as well as sun loungers, tables, chairs, a lovely Jacuzzi and multiple pool “toys” to keep the children occupied.

If the TV’s and outdoor area wasn’t enough to keep you entertained then the garage, as with many Florida villas, was a very well stocked games room which saw many family pool tournaments taking place over the holiday. There’s many more entertainment options there too including table tennis, fussball and darts as well as washing machine and tumble dryer if you want to be a bit domesticated while on holiday. Add in mountain bikes and childrens buggys and you have practically everything, and more, you would have at home.

Overall, a fantastic property in a fantastic location, especially if you are doing Disney parks, 10 mins tops to them….and that doesn’t involve requiring to drive like Lewis Hamilton. The owners are great and will do everything to make your holiday go as smoothly as possible. And I also must make quick mention of the property management company who service the villa. I had a query on the first day on what exact cable package I had, I emailed and got a response within 15 minutes. On day 2 I noticed a couple of sections of lanyard had become detached from the frame, possibly due to the recent high winds. I emailed the property management in the morning before heading to the parks, it was fixed by the time I arrived home mid-afternoon. Basically if you want a family holiday location with both owners and property management taking care of any needs and questions then this villa comes highly recommended.

My final observation, this felt like a home from the moment I walked in the door, not a place you were just staying in for a couple of weeks that didn’t feel like it was yours.

Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes.

The Crow Family, 

Perfectly situated only a few miles from the Disney Parks, this villa has everything a family could need. Plenty of 'extras' like pool floats, toys, books, games etc.The pool was pristine and very welcoming after long hot days. The Disney themed rooms are ideal for children, and two master ensuite means that two families can share. Within a few minutes drive there is an abundance of restaurants to choose from, and if you fancy a beer or two, there is plenty of local taxis. The owners Lucy and Mike are very informative, friendly and quick to respond to any queries. We had a 'Magical' time!

Ralton Family, 

You guys have an amazing villa in a fabulous location. I literally could not have asked for anything more. All of the toys in the villa were a huge bonus from me as saved in luggage space to bring my own.
I could not rate you high enough. Always on hand to answer all my questions and so so helpful. Thank you. I will be back.

Stacy may,

You folks have a great property, it was just what we needed.

Kerner Family, 

we arrived the day hurricaine mathew hit, the villa owners did all they could to get us in as early as possible which was great.
Villa was very clean and kitchen well equiped for indoor and outdoor eating/drinking and having the wash/dryer facilities we were able to come home with no washing !!!
due to the curfew we were holed up for a day in the villa, but plenty to keep us entertained, we were even able to use the pool.
plenty of room, we were a family of 3 adults and 2 children. Only a short drive to restaurants/supermarket/disney.
We didnt use the clubhouse.
We would def return to this villa
TIPS - if driving I would drive to Walmart which is a bit futher but much much cheaper than the local supermarket, the local chinese (located beside outback) was very good and we had a takeout from there.

also a bit thank you to the local neighbours who came in to make sure we were all prepared for the hurricane

Forbes Famile, 

We have been to Orlando on two previous occasions and this visit was fantastic. This particular home is located in a convenient and easily accessible area of Orlando. Not far from the Interstate, but tucked away enough to provide that “off the beaten path” peaceful feel. The home itself is very charming - and very new. It’s exceptionally clean, nicely laid out and has a lovely pool and patio area. It was so nice to relax by the pool every morning and evening. The owners were a delight to work with. Check-in/out process was amazingly convenient. There were no minuses here. Highly recommend working with these owners and booking this home. You’ll enjoy it!

Hunter Family, 

Our family of five just returned from a week long stay. The owners, Lucy and Mike, were a pleasure to work with and we made a great choice! The home is in a beautiful gated community and a short 5 minute drive to all conveniences including grocery stores and restaurants. We returned home from the parks for a mid day break several days, which was a short and easy drive. The home was clean and comfortable and we had lots of room to spread out. Our boys loved the game room and we all enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub! We've rented several homes near Disney over the past 15 years and this was our best experience yet!

Lucy Family, 

This was the second time we have stayed in the villa, already looking to go back next year, if available this villa is a must, great villa, excellent location and very nice resort. The villa has everything you need. The villa was spotless, haven’t got a negative word to say about the villa, resort or location. The service was exceptional and the management company were straight on any problems.

Oates Family, 

Nice and Spacious, my Grandsons loved all the toys and all the baby equipment made life so much easier. First time staying at Emerald Island found it really nice and would stay again.

Kirk Family, 

Great villa for young families and very easy access to the Disney parks. We had an excellent stay and were very happy with your villa

Hanson Family, 

It was a wonderful stay in your house. Especially the pool was great for my son and he dived as well into the huge amount of toys :)
Everything was great and we'd love to stay in your house again for the next trip to Disney, hopefully soon!


We are grateful for everything. The stay was very enjoyable. The villa was excellent. I have already recommended it to two friends!


We love all the room and space! Decorated nice, feels a like a home away from home. Love the private pool and spa. Also like all the extras that you have provided to make it feel more like home.
My family and I loved our second stay at the Emerald Hunny Pot. The villa had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 kids. We felt like were in our home away from home. The villa has a very relaxing feel to it. The villa is in a great location and so close to all of the Disney Parks. We loved how convenient we were to many stores and restaurants. We hope to plan our next visit in the near future!


thank you for your beautiful home .....we loved it!!
everything was in order when we arrived-and very beautiful, pool area and pool very clean and ready for our family.
Emerald Island was awesome!


This was the 3rd time we’ve stayed in the last 18 months, so we are very pleased with the villa, and planning our next trip back! Very clean, both inside and out!
We love the resort and complex. Now that the dolphin pass has sped up entry to the resort, we can’t think of any other improvements!


We had an absolutely wonderful time and loved staying in your villa (yet again!! :-)

Orell Family, 

We had a great time and your villa was perfect!

Jakubeck Family, 

Wonderful stay once again. We will recommend to others!

Lottes Family, 

Thanks for letting us stay at your home, the Emerald Hunny Pot. We had a great time! The location was perfect, the house was clean, and the kids loved the pool and game room.
Again, thank you for everything.

Vasquez Family, 

We enjoyed a lot staying at your villa. It was a great experience! We surely want to do it again!

Calvo Family, 

We loved staying in your home. It was just perfect for us, well equipped, comfortable and immaculately kept. We had everything we needed and were blown away with the splendour of the Resort. It was exactly as seen on your website. The house is very well located with nearby supermarkets and restaurants and within easy distance of all the parks. Our kids were so impressed having their own pool and hottub – every morning they were up early and out for a swim and then every evening they would play in the games room. We have left with very fond memories of Emerald Hunny Pot and a fantastic holiday in Orlando. It has been a pleasure to deal with you, and would like to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

O'Flaherty Family, 

We were on a family vacation and were amazed at what the house offered. Not only was there plenty of room, but the garage stocked with a pool table, air hockey, and other games, which really made the stay that much more enjoyable. The house was spotless and adequately stocked. We stayed at the Emerald Hunny Pot and would chose this house again during our next visit. Just a few miles from Disney! and close to everything else.

Davala Family, 

We had a fantastic time for a third time in a row and warmly recommend the villa. We love the pool and the games room.
We didn’t order a welcome pack, but were very pleasantly surprised to find drinks and breakfast items in the fridge – these were very welcome.
We had fantastic time in Florida, we hope to visit the villa again soon!

McGurk Family, 

Just returned from a 2 week spell in this great villa. You will be hard pushed to find a villa that is better value for money and in a better location.

Oates Family, 

We had a fabulous time and the villa was perfect! We loved staying in such a lovely home furnished to such a high standard!

Hughes Family, 

Yes the information was fabulous. The directions to Hunny Pot were very clear and we found it no problem. The sheets about shopping, dining out and other things to do apart from Disney very comprehensive.

In the previous two years we have visited the Isle of Arran for our family holiday. The rental for a home with far fewer facilities was much more expensive than your home. So yes it is great value for money in such a comparison. The villa sleeps 8/10 so the cost per person is very reasonable.

We would certainly recommend the villa to anyone looking for high quality facilities in a great location!

Greenwood Family, 

Just wanted to say thank you for the rental of your villa. We had a fabulous first visit to the USA and absolutely loved Disney World.

Everything we needed was provided and the use of the two strollers was so appreciated.

We will be in touch in the future for another stay and will recommend to our friends.

Angelo Family, 

The home is well cared for! We felt like we were at home the whole week. We had a fabulous week and thank you very much for sharing your villa with us. The breakfast package was the BEST!!! In renting as much as we have in Florida for the past few years, we have never experienced such a treat!

Although we have no small children who required baby equipment or toys, this house had plenty! Our teenagers loved the home as well. The perfect home for all ages.

Connolly Family, 

A high quality villa experience in an excellent location for all Disney attractions. Further distinguished from its competitors by the owners themselves, who delivered the holiday we hoped for.

Gill Family, 

Your villa was lovely, a real home from home. We could tell it was loved and not just another rental for someone. We will defiantly consider your villa for our annual trip next March.

Hayter Family, 

Ours was a lovely stay. We thank you for providing a haven from the New Year's week crowds!!!
Great time, great place, thank you for your attention to detail Our Grandchildren loved your place as did we.

Samis Family, 

Information provided before departure was excellent, management company response to any issues first class, kids toys and pool toys extremely good, would recommend to others, visited Orlando many times and the location must be the best we have visited.

Buchanan Family, 

If you are looking for a villa with a home from home feeling, then this is the place to go. Everything you would need is there. I think the resort is great I've been coming here for the last 6 years and I'd recommend it to anyone. Location is perfect for most things. I think the rental is good value considering what is in the villa.

Fox Family, 

We have rented several local houses since 2005, and your villa is by far the cleanest and best appointed we've encountered. Everything is exactly as advertised or better. This is a very kid-friendly home, complete with games, toys, and sports equipment. Very nice subdivision; great location for Disney..
We'll be back!

Patton Family, 

We have stayed in many villas in Orlando over the years, and wish we had found yours earlier! By far the nicest villa we have stayed in! Just beautiful and we will return!

Jackson Family, 

We loved the villa! As a mom I was very appreciative of all the little extras such as the kids plates and cups, toys & books, movies, and the kid décor. We all enjoyed spending time in the game room every evening after dinner. Great family bonding. The information was great. I loved how detailed everything was. It made planning our vacation so much easier.
We had a great time at your villa. It was perfect for our family vacation with my parents, and our two little girls. The girls loved the décor in the rooms. Everyone enjoyed the game room every evening. The private heated pool was very nice. The experience over all was very relaxing. We all felt like we were at home and had plenty of space. The villa had everything we needed and much more. We look forward to coming back again!

Huerta Family, 

very well kept, very clean, both inside and outside. The whole rental experience was very professional. Lucy & Mike were very straight forward. Had no surprises. Great spot, great value, will return

Kelemen Family, 

The pool was excellent; we LOVED the house, and all its amenities. You clearly have taken excellent care of the place, and take great pride in your home. Thanks so much!

Rono Family, 

In Nov 2011, I took my two daughters and their three daughters (my granddaughters) to Disneyworld for a family get-together. The girls were seven, five and five. We found the location and Villa perfect for our use (only three miles from Disney). Four bedrooms with three baths, two master suites with private baths. Great collection of DVDs for the kids and they also enjoyed the gameroom. The heated and screened pool right off of the living room was great! We would certainly rent this villa again!!!

Suplee Family, 

Very clean and tidy, no complaints and good array of toys, you have thought of every possible thing to entertain the children! Lucy and Mike have thought of absolutely everything in their beautiful home!

Toseland Family, 

Thank you for letting us rent your villa. We had a nice time in your lovely home. It was clean and neat. We were very happy and excited for our stay upon arrival.

Scullin Family, 

We first want to thank you for an amazing home to share a fantastic experience with my parents and my family. My kids had an amazing time.
Thank you so much again and we have already decided that we will be starting saving once we get back and heading back next year.

Spencer Family, 

The information provided before and that left in the villa was great, it really helped. It was very clean and well looked after, I was very pleased with the cleanliness and condition of the villa. It was about the kids having fun and staying in a family friendly home and you did just that.

Owens Family, 

We had a wonderful time at your villa. We loved the pool and game room. We will definitely be back again and will continue to recommend your villa to others. Your villa is very nicely decorated and makes you feel at home on vacation as opposed to staying in a hotel.

Pilaitis Family, 

we had excellent second visit and would highly recommend this place, it is perfect

McGurk Family, 

The information was excellent. We have visited Kissimmee many times but if we were first timers your info would have assisted us greatly. We have stayed at a lot of villas and never had such useful information ahead of our stay. This was one of the cleanest villas we have ever stayed in. Immaculate.
Villa was very clean and tidy including the garage. It is also very tastefully decorated and homely. The family photos are a lovely touch, you have obviously been visiting Kissimmee for many years too. You also care about keeping your villa in good condition which is obvious and this hopefully encourages your guests to do likewise.
Your CD and DVD collection was great although we never had the chance to use any. The Itouch docking station was brilliant. We had our Itouch with us and were able to charge and play it which was good. Also the wireless internet connection was brilliant. Plenty of pool toys and childrens toys.
We thought your villa was delightful. You obviously care about keeping it in good condition and your inclusion of the extras adds to the homely feel.

Marshall Family, 

We have just returned from our amazing holiday in Florida. The villa was absolutely perfect for our holiday needs and we had everything that we could want in a very relaxed and confortable environment. The decor is fantastic and the girls loved the bedrooms, games room and pool.
We will definitely consider your fantastic villa for our return trips to Florida (which are now inevitable) and will recommend the Emerald Hunny Pot Villa to friends and family.

Thompson Family, 

Thank you very much for 'lending' us your home - we had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed all that the house had to offer.
We will certainly recommend you to any family/friends that might be visiting Disney in the near future.

Hampson Family, 

Absolutely spot on.
A superb villa with all the facilities and amenities you could need and extremely friendly and very helpful owners.
A superb resort to stay on, very close to Disney etc

O'Loughlin Family, 

All the information sent was really useful and helpful. The villa was spotless, everyone was blown away with it, real home from home and couldn?t fault it. The location of the resort is perfect for Disney and its again it is very well maintained.
You've obviously worked hard and looked at the things required for your target audience. You have provided everything that you need to make the stay as comfortable as possible so from you're prospective I think you're on the ball.
If you're looking for a 'home from home' and a little bit more, then I couldn't recommend this villa highly enough

Fox Family, 

Very clean inside and out. No dislikes. The selection of DVD?s was fantastic. Monsters Inc and Toy Story were particular favourites with our 3 year old

Turnbull Family , 

I can't say enough about the cleanliness of your villa and about all of the ammentities. Every detail was thought of including childrens toys, pool toys, and childrens cups and dishes. We have stayed at other homes before, and nothing compares to the Emerald Hunny Pot.
Everything was awesome. My little one found the toy box with trains in it, and it made him SO happy.

Cuddeback Family, 

Thanks again for the opportunity to rent your villa. We were impressed by how clean and comfortable it was and well looked after. Very easy to feel at home. A beautiful retreat from the busy days at Disney!

Johnson Family, 

Very good basics like loo roll and soap provided.  Also we were grateful for all the toys and necessities provided for children/babies.
We had an enjoyable stay at the villa due to many factors as the attention to detail and the comfort of the villa, and also the close proximity to Orlando's main attractions.  We would certainly recommend the villa to family and friends.

Hare Family, 

Hi Lucy & Mike,
Thanks again for the villa, a good time again and can I say the villa was as clean and well looked after as ever.

Brown Family, 

Hi, just a quick note to tell you we had a wonderful holiday, we loved your house, you're right, it is a home from home. I usually look forward to coming back to my home comforts after a holiday, and I really didn't want to leave this time! We'll be recomending your house to everyone we know, and are hoping to come back ourselves, just as soon as we can save enough pennies again!

Thanks again

Jacquie and Paul

Jacquie and Paul, 

We really did love your villa and will certainly bear it in mind for a return visit either for ourselves or recommend to friends and relatives.
Having spoken to other UK visitors in other villas, yours was excellent value with much better furnishings including carpets.
Ideally situated for theme parks and restaurants.  The Emerald Island complex is clean, tidy, secure and quiet.
10 out of 10!

Tooke Family, 

We had a lovely holiday in your villa Thank you.  We didn't want to come back home we were so settled! The location of your villa for Disney is fabulous and the information for the back routes to Disney were very much appreciated and saved us loads of time. You had everything we needed at the villa.  I will definitely get in touch next time we plan a visit. Once again many thanks.

Foster Family, 

Honestly Mike & lucy we want to thank you for making these vacation the best ever.My family always going to remember for years! THANKS AGAIN

Ruiz Family, 

The information was brilliant, detailed and most helpful to plan everything. The directions were excellent right to the point of entering emerald island.  It was clean and well stocked with towels etc. We trully had a great time and would do it again.

McGurk Family, 

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful villa, and would highly recommend it to our many friends who would normally use hotels in Florida.  It is just the perfect size.
We think this resort is perfect, clean and tidy and a perfect place to stay.

Murphy Family, 

We had a most enjoyable holiday and found the Villa to be perfect. We liked everything, absolutely no complaints, 10/10.
An excellent holiday and a great place to relax after a hard day at the attractions.
If the opportunity to vacation in Orlando arises again in the future we would certainly consider staying in your Villa.

Cripps Family, 

Communication was the best, which was very reassuring that were renting the best home and dealing with great services you guys offered possible.
The Villa was nice and cool and clean for our first entry after long travel A+
Our family had such a great time. We had family that rented a larger home but found themselves over to our home more than in their own. It's a perfecting setting for a small family who wants peace and quiet outside of the fun and exciting theme park scene

Balcom Family, 

I would like to say thank you so much for allowing and giving me and my family a pleasure June 7-16 to stay in your villa. We had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting in the future.
Thank you

Balcom Family, 

We thought the presentation of your villa was outstanding.  We particularly liked the fact that the dining table had been laid, very welcoming. The pool was wonderful, couldn't keep the kids out of it.  Jacuzzi very good also, great for relaxing after a day at the parks.
It is certainly better than staying in a hotel or motels which we have done previously.
A friend had recommended a villa to us at Lindfields Resort but it was already booked, so I began looking on the internet and found hundreds available.  So after eliminating most I made a short list and yours just kept coming out top, it ticked all our boxes!  We were not disappointed.  
My family (age 6 to 64) had a wonderful holiday at Emerald Hunny Pot, very comfortable accommodation, nicely furnished, lovely pool and Jacuzzi. Walk through the door and it has the WOW factor. Children very well catered for with toys, games, cd's etc., although the pool was their favourite.  Did not want to come home!

Leather Family, 

A lot of good information, especially for those that may be visiting the parks for the first time. We would have liked to have had that info for our first trip (which parks are busy on which days etc)!
Very clean both inside and out, impressive vs other Emerald Island Villas we have stayed in.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your villa. It was very quiet and clean and provided a comfortable home away from home feel. We will certainly return for a visit the next time we are in town.

Gross Family, 

Loved the standard of the villa, best we stayed in so far!
The games room was a big hit with the older members of our party but our 3 year old still loved the pool table!!
Lovely villa with excellent facilities in good location. Will be back one day!! The Appleby Family

Appleby Family, 

Just to let you know we all absolutely loved your villa. It really made the holiday enjoyable. It was so convenient for all the parks & restaurants etc. We loved the heated pool & all the extra touches which you have furnished your villa with.
Obviously when we go back we will book again.

Tonge Family, 

This was our 2nd visit to the villa and it exceeded our expectations. We had many relaxing family hours spent in the pool & spa. Every need was met and there was fun things for every age in our family! We really liked all the baby items! It was very helpful to have all of our needs met.

Cuddeback Family, 

Just so you know, we had a great time. The house was a Godsend in the middle of the day. We will recommend you to our friends!

Peroutka Family, 

We really enjoyed our stay at the Honey Pot Villa. It was extremely clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Very clean internally and externally. We were especially happy with the cleanliness of the bathrooms.
It was very easily accessible and close to the Disney Parks. It was really nice coming back after a long day at the Park to be able to enjoy a whole house with a pool.

Meyers Family, 

Everything was great - super holiday.

Freeland Family, 

It was Perfect!!!
You guys are great! Many thanks!!!

Semeran Family, 

We had a wonderful time at your villa. We loved the pool and game room. We will definitely be back again and will continue to recommend your villa to others. Your villa is very nicely decorated and makes you feel at home on vacation as opposed to staying in a hotel.

Pilaitis Family, 

Your house was beautiful and met all of our needs. Everything was perfect.
We had a wonderful vacation and great stay in your beautiful villa. With 3 kids (ages 3 & 9), your house was perfect for our family. The kids loved the games room and of course the pool!! We had a great time and will return again.
We try and plan a Disney vacation every two years and we would definitely book the emerald hunny pot villa again.
Thanks again for your lovely home.

Wildman Family, 

Your home was wonderful!! The kids had the best vacation ever. They loved coming home to the pool and we used it every day! We felt right at home. We really loved it.
Thanks for being such great hosts!

Guernsey Family, 

Your villa felt like home. It was very comfortable with everything that we could ask for, and more. Great layout and wonderful with the pool (and jacuzzi). Nothing to dislike!
We all had a wonderful time and no-one wanted to leave at the end of our 2 weeks.
Thanks again for letting us rent your Villa and for all the useful information that you provided us with before leaving. Your home is lovely and we did not want to leave !!!

Eedes Family, 

Thank you so much for a fab stay at your home. It really was very comfortable and we found everything we could possibly need and more.
The pool was the best thing to come back to though and many a night was spent in the spa with a few glasses of vino!
I will definitely recommend your home to any friends and wouldn't hesitate in coming back when we return to Florida again in the future.

Miller Family, 

I thought the information you provided in the welcome pack was superb. You made things so easy for us to decide when to go to different parks and the map of 192 and list of shops/restaurants etc gave us a good insight into the area. I cannot thank you both enough.
The resort was beautiful and a pleasure to stay in. It was very well looked after.
Everything that you have in the villa is luxurious and made our holiday so much more enjoyable. You have catered to everybody's need with all the amenities you have provided in there, we only wish we had longer to really enjoy them all.
It is good value. I especially like the way that you advertise the price as the final price and include all your amenities (bbq, golf clubs etc). It gives you a realistic price, what you see is what you get, with no surprises!!
We had the holiday of a lifetime at your home, it is more than we could ever dream of and we cannot thank you enough. It really is a home with the pictures of you all, and the amenities you provide. We thoroughly enjoyed it and wish we had longer to enjoy it to its full potential. It is in an excellent location for Disney and all other attractions.

Maguire Family, 

You have a lovely home and we had a great relaxing holiday. Thank you

Selvey Family, 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us we had a very relaxing and exciting stay, who could ask for more!

Arbuckle Family, 

We very much enjoyed our time in your house, our daughter loved the themed kids bedrooms, and has left you a note in your visitors book!!!
Liked the Jacuzzi and also the tv channels!! And everything else, of course! Would book your villa again if I was coming back to Orlando.

Philpott Family, 

Emerald Island Resort itself is very nice & very friendly, nice walking trails, kept very clean, the Internet café was great!
Villa was clean and the addition of the pool table etc in the garage was great & nice to have the movies and PS2 games - Easy to get to & peaceful area & nice layout.
Having been there for over 3 weeks we did observe a lot and thought you would like to know that your management company does a great job of looking after your place.

Salewski Family, 

Dear Lucy and Mike,
I have to compliment you on always keeping me informed in such a professional manner. This is the third time we have rented a villa and you are by far the most responsive owners I have dealt with. Thank you!
We look forward to staying in your beautiful home.
Have a wonderful holiday.
Lynda Adams

Adams Family, 

We had a wonderful week in your villa and truly enjoyed the experience. We will spread the word to everyone we know here what a wonderful place you have and the excellent customer service. It is a perfect location for people that want to visit Disney as well as some other attractions.
There was so much to do at the villa that we did not get to use all the things you've provided in the home such as your games area in the garage. The toys that you had in the Mickey bedroom closet were great as the kids played a little with them before we headed out to the parks. We had purchase Disney Vacation Club a couple of months before our trip, and started to second guess our decisions once we saw the space and private pool. I also thank you for your wonderful customer service and the care you take in making sure your villa meets our expectations and needs.
The house was a wonderful retreat to escape the parks and we did enjoy soaking in the spa after a busy day.
The house was beautiful and the warm pool was a joy to come back to after the day at Disney

McMullan Family, 

We enjoyed staying at your home. We felt very welcome when we arrived, and had a great time. The directions were very helpful. The home was clean and nicely set up. Nice complex with great location. It was great to come back to a comfortable home instead of a hotel room.

Keefe Family, 

We had a great time and would highly recommend your villa to anyone.
Everything we needed and more was there.
Can't wait to go back again soon.

Lord Family, 

Very homely and welcoming, we liked every thing about it, the washing machine and drier were fantastically efficient and quick. No dislikes
The information you sent to us by email and that provided in the villa was superb. The list of busy/quiet days for attractions was particularly invaluable in avoiding the queues.
The pool and surrounding area was very clean

Guidi Family, 

Your directions were wonderful. Especially the route to Walt Disney world through the shortcut! We found all the information you provided invaluable. We liked all the details and amenities you put in the villa. We loved being able to watch a DVD or play in the pool. Everything is so welcoming and we felt better than at home! Thank you for putting all the effort in making your guests? stay so comfortable.

Miguel Family, 

Great location. Very easy to book. No hassles. We loved the resort. It was quiet and clean. The guards at the gate were so nice and helpful. The staff in the clubhouse were very nice also. Everything at the villa was perfectly clean. We were very pleased.

Pennison Family, 

We had a wonderful time at your villa! The house was perfect for a young and energetic family. Our boys really enjoyed the kids themed bedrooms, the video collection, and all the pool toys. We spent an entire day in the quiet and relaxing ambience of your backyard. The pool and jacuzzi were heated perfectly and we ended each day under the stars!

Cuddeback Family, 

My husband & I were so impressed with the villa, and the care you put into making sure everything we could possibly need or want was there. We liked the fact that it was in a good location for Disney and that there were shops & restaurants close by. We were also grateful for the time you took to answer our questions before we arrived. Thank you both for a really lovely holiday! Emerald Island was lovely - my husband has promised to work extra hard so that one day we can buy a villa there! We just thought it was very nice, friendly, clean, and looked really safe.

Rutherford Family, 

We all had a great time at the Emerald Hunny Pot, now all back to work unfortunately!
thanks again

Warner Family, 

Location and amenities, nice, I see a couple of stroller aka buggies were added, nice, also more pool toys was nice. Resort was excellent. This is our 2nd time at this villa in 2 years so enough said there.
Edmonds Family
hoping to see you again next year.

Edmonds Family, 

Thank you and we had a great time at the house

Kerrigan Family, 

Hi Lucy and Michael,
We had a great time! The villa was beautiful and was so comfortable. My husband loved the PS2 and the game selections. We'll let our friends know about the Emerald Hunny Pot Villa. Great job on the website by the way. It is what sealed the deal!
It was so nice to have the feeling of home on our trip. Travelling with an infant and a preschooler, we needed not only the kitchen but the washer and dryer as well. The high-chair, stroller and playpen made our lives so much easier. Having our own pool and spa was such a bonus! We've been bragging about the value of the villa to our friends. They all want to know if it is as good as we thought it would be (the answer is completely). With so many people in our party, it was important for us all to have our own space and a common place as well. No hotel could compete with the value and amenities of the villa!

Goode Family, 

We had a lovely holiday, your home was very well equipped for the little ones, very tastefully decorated and clean and tidy, missing it already!!

Morris Family, 

Dear Lucy and Michael,
We had a great time in your villa. Thank you and congratulations for having such a beautiful house.
We appreciated in particular the cleanness, the convenience and the quietness. Really a great choice.
Best wishes,

Valezquez Family, 

Lucy and Mike, the place was perfect - we trully enjoyed it. Thanks for everything
The Nixon Family

Nixon Family, 

Dear Lucy and Michael,
We had a great time. The accommodations worked out perfectly for our family. I couldn't believe how convenient it was to get to and from the Disney Parks. Everything was clean and working perfectly.
Thanks for all your kindness and help. I especially liked seeing the family photos on the TV. Makes it a little more personal to see who actually owns the home.
Michelle Engel and family

Engel Family, 

Hello Lucy and Michael, We had a great holiday thank you - just a shame it is over so quickly. We would definitely consider using your villa when we next visit Orlando.
Paul Warne and family

Warne Family, 

Lucy and Mike, We had a great time; your home was perfect for us, and we appreciate it and you so much. The space of a warm home makes it so nice for a large family.
Thanks again, Denise Gamble

Gamble Family, 

We had a wonderful time in Florida. Your villa is beautiful, clean and obviously very new. We appreciate you sharing it with us. You provided everything there is when travelling with kids. The crib, high-chair and toys were great and very useful. Honestly that is was drove me to your place since I have a 11 month old and a 3 year old. They had a great time. They especially loved the pool. The character rooms are decorated cute. The rest of the house was also decorated very nice. It felt like home away from home. They kids felt right at home. The adults that travelled with me had no complaints. They loved the villa too. The villa was very clean on arrival. We treated the villa as if it were are own. We had no problems with getting the key or finding the villa. Again we had a wonderful time and we will definitely keep you in mind when we visit Florida again. I also referred your villa to others.

Pilaitis Family, 

Dear Lucy and Mike, we all had a fantastic time at the Emerald Hunny Pot Villa and would return without any hesitation. The decor and furniture was beautiful and is exactly how I would like my villa to look if ever I was lucky enough to own one. I hope that any occupants in the future treat it with the respect that it deserves. It was also nice to see your photos on the cabinet and put faces to your names! Best wishes April Clark

Clark Family, 

We had a blast! The kids had so much fun that we have decided to go back next year... Are we there yet? We really enjoyed the convenience of the amenities. Pool heat works great and villa is very clean. Direct internet access and better BBQ unit would be the ultimate!

Cosyns Family, 

Lucy and Mike, We have returned home, and are all terribly depressed! We had such a great time that it will truly be a chore to get back to the regular grind on Monday. We enjoyed your home very much. I am curious about the section in your letter regarding "incentives for repeat visitors" - we will likely return to the area in 2006. What could you do for us as far as a rate for this 2-week period? Thanks again, and thank you so much for all of your help.

Parent Family, 

We enjoyed our stay, thank you - everything was as expected and as described on your site. Compared to other homes we have rented we particularly enjoyed the little extra's such as a DVD Player and movies, the PS2 and games, the fact that the pool was heated and ready when we got there. We also liked the location which was nice and close to everything.

Salewski Family, 

Firstly, the directions were wonderful and very easy to follow to find the villa. The villa was immaculate on arrival and nothing could be improved. The info/guest information provided was very good and very helpful. The cleanliness of the villa was immaculate and very clean. The only thing we could not find was a cookie sheet, everything else was fabulous! It could not have been more wonderful - we enjoyed our visit so much that we did not want to go home. Very good value and we had a wonderful time.

Roseboom Family, 

We enjoyed the space. This was our first family trip to Disney and I just know we would not have been as comfortable had we stayed at one of the park resorts as we were originally planning to do. We also enjoyed the pool.
Great value for the money.
We enjoyed our stay at your villa and are thankful for all your help in making our stay organized, comfortable and enjoyable. The presentation of your website and your materials is excellent. Many thanks to you for opening your home to our family. We hope to do business with you again in the future.

Baker Family, 

We had a lovely time. The villa was very clean, we were very pleased and on such a lovely resort. We were so busy with family and visiting the parks we did not get the chance to explore that we had hoped, but the location is perfect for enjoying Disney.
It is a good value for the money, especially with a larger family. We hope to return at some point for a family get away with my mother, cousins, aunts, etc. and rent several villas in the resort. It would be a wonderful family reuinion.

Eldred Family, 

Great house may see you next year.
George Henson

Henson Family, 

Thank you so much for letting us rent your home. It was a lovely place to rest at the end of the day. Our children were enchanted, as were the grown ups. Loved the decorating! My favourite touch was the little Pooh set in concrete at the door- such a charming entrance! I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to others.

Garcia Family, 

We had a brilliant holiday and have recommended your villa to our family who live in Michigan and holiday regularly in Orlando.

Kay Family, 

This was our first rental and I'll do it again. I loved the communication and ease of arrival and the ability to have our freedom. Our children loved the pool (with the heat was sooooo nice). The ability to make a snack or breakfast and be leisurely was outstanding. Truly like a home away from home. I was nervous and did not know what to expect, but was happy as a clam upon arrival. I had a perm-a-smile when we opened the door. Thanks for everything and best of luck.
It was Perfection - very well kept If this home impressed my mother and wife (who are not related but have superior standards) then the villa passes with flying colours. Yes we do plan on returning. Another nice benefit was that multiple hot air balloon launches took place every morning around us and the last morning the launches were within 1/2 mile. What a sight and my little ones loved it. The 2 and 4 yr old were bouncing around looking every morning. The pool was great and I do miss the relaxation. Thanks again and be well.
Nathan Edmonds

Edmonds Family, 

Lucy & Mike,
Just a quick note to say what a fantastic holiday we had in your Villa!
It was just great ,the kids loved the pool, lots to do and not enough time to do it ,our 2 weeks went buy so quick.
Thanks for a great holiday hope to go back soon.
Diane Adrian Natasha Matthew

Barnett Family, 

The holiday was brilliant and we found your villa in immaculate condition on arrival. We loved every minute. The villa was absolutely beautiful and was exactly what we wanted. Thanks for allowing us to heat the pool. The kids spent every minute in the pool while we were at the villa (and we were not far behind them).
Thanks again. We shall certainly be recommending it to our friends.

Martinus Family, 

Hello Lucy and Michael
As we arrived at your home we were so happy, everything was so nice, clean and beautiful!, it was like a dream come true. We miss the luxury of your villa and the great time we had in the Emerald Hunny Pot (currently we are on the Keys). We will certainly recommend your villa to other people, and who knows, we may return our selves some time.
Best wishes
Christa and Johan

Booy Family, 

Thank you very much for a great house - i hope you found everything in order as we did are best to keep it the way we got it. Thanks again for having such a pleasant house, everything was great i am sure if we can work out something for next year that would be great. THANKS AGAIN GREAT HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Greenburg Family, 

Dear Lucy and Michael,
Thanks for your e mail. we had a wonderful time in your villa, we have been unable to download the questionnaire for some reason but we want you to know that the villa was beautiful. the little touches you have made such as the DVDs and PlayStation made a huge difference to our 13yr old son, even though he loved having his own pool! you must be really pleased with the villa and the resort and I'm glad there wasn't any damage during the hurricane, I think the two big villas on either side may have helped shelter it from the wind.We would love to stay in it again sometime,
Best wishes
Debbie and Alan Anderson

Anderson Family, 

We really had a lovely time in Orlando and would like to thank you very much. Guest information was very helpful, the house was very clean when we arrived and everything you could imagine in the villa was there to help make our stay more enjoyable. Everything was great and we had a great stay, and we can imagine coming back to the Emerald Hunny Pot in the future.
best wishes from Switzerland
Petra Felber and party

Felber Family, 

Just wanted to thank you and let you know what a wonderful vacation we had in Florida. We loved the house and it worked out great with my in-laws having their own separate bedroom and Mother-in-Law did great travelling there and back and kept up with us all very well despite the heat...she is so glad they went and she and our kids will have wonderful memories of her when she is gone. The kids loved the pool, toys, DVDs, PS2, etc.
Thanks for all your help in ensuring we had a great trip!! We really appreciate it!! I hope all is going well with you and your family.
Takecare! Carolyn Brown

Brown Family, 

Lucy and Michael,
Just returned from Florida. Had a wonderful time.
Your home is beautiful, hope to use it again in the future. I can't believe all the items available for our use. Wonderfully done. All the information supplied was of great help and very organized. We thought the dining room table was set up so nicely we just couldn't bring ourselves to use it!! We just looked at it all week.
Thanks again, Joe Jowdy
