Would rent again, the whole process was very smooth. - Tropical Magic
Large home fit 4 generations wonderfully. Loved the location, close to everything. Everybody had a great time. Only suggestion would be updating the carpet upstairs it has seen better days, but we may be a little bias as we own a Floor Covering Store. Nice updates in the Master bath (my inlaws had this room) and game room. Would rent again, the whole process was very smooth.

We thank Harmon's family for renting our home and for taking the time to review. We will certainly look into the carpets. We take great pride in ensuring a smooth process for our guests.
Would stay again - Timon's Magic
This resort is the perfect location. Gated well protected. Three bedroom house was laid out well. There was a few issues maintenance but were looked after fast. I would recommend this resort.

Great to hear from these guests and we are glad they liked the location and the villa lay-out. We are always happy to get any concerns resolved ASAP.
Wonderful stay - Dory's Magic
We had a great stay at this lovely home. It accommodated well for us party of 16 including young kids who had fun in the games room. Host was very pleasant and responsive prior to our arrival. We really enjoyed our stay here and house was well kept, clean, spacious and cosy. Truly recommended. Thank you Sri for being an excellent host.

Amazing 24th year vacation in Florida - Simba's Magic
My family has taken a vacation after Christmas in the Kissimmee/Orlando area right after Christmas for the past 24 years. 10 years ago we discovered Emerald Island Resorts and staying on the property had been such an important part of making our vacation complete. This year we stayed at a property called Minnie’s Magic. We really enjoyed our stay in this home. The home had everything we needed to relax and feel like we were right at home. We enjoyed being able to eat in and keep our laundry up to date! Just driving into the gated community makes you feel secure and we love the dolphin waterfall feature at the entrance. This was our first time renting from Emerald Island Rentals. We can’t say enough about how great the communication was. They even sent us a Christmas card right before our upcoming trip thanking us for being a customer. We got the wrong code to the WIFI and they responded immediately to our email with the correct code which made our children very happy!😊. We will definitely use Emerald Island Rentals next year and highly recommend the Minnie’s Magic property! Thank you for making our 24th vacation a success!!!! See you next year!!!!!

Best Place to stay for Disney Trip - Minnie's Magic
The place was so beautiful with trees and nice landscape. The rental property was very clean, We stayed for 3 days, the experience was so good. It is very easy to get anything because this is in very convenient place. Close to WALMART, TARGET and what not. If you are going as a group please consider this, you can cook and eat with all family and friends.

Awesome rental experience - Tropical Magic
Rental experience was awesome, from the time I booked it until our departure. Excellent communication and house was exactly as described. Owner is very honest and responsive to any questions or concerns you may have. Book this property, you will not be disappointed. We will not hesitate to rent from Sri in the future.

Thanksgiving Family Reunion - Emerald Magic
The kitchen was well stocked and all appliances worked well. We have stayed at a number of Emerald Island Rentals over the last 20 years and our family much prefers renting side by side homes so the grandchildren can play together easier. We had that this year and that was great. The game room was lots of fun and well stocked. The living areas were comfortable..

Perfect for a family with little ones!! - Tigger's Magic
Tiggers magic is clean, comfortable, and exactly as described! One thing that I searched for when returning to emerald Island was a home that was safe for the average curious toddler and this home nails it! Our little ones could be free to roam this home because the furnishings and layout were perfect! I felt at home and worry free!

Awesome Home - Dory's Magic
Thank you so much for allowing our family the chance to experience your beautiful home!! We had a wonderful time at the home and the easy drive to Disney was fantastic. The home was as described and everything was clean and in working order. The owner was very easy to work with and we had everything we needed prior to the arrival.

Absolutely Gorgeous - Tropical Magic
My family and I plan to visit Sri Gogineni properties again. He is professional and care about his tentants as well as his property. I called him about a minor issue and it was resolved within the hour. The home was clean and accommodating to our families need. Pool was clean and relaxing. It was totally awesome waking up at 6am drinking a cup of coffee by the pool, which was very private. Absolutely Gorgeous and we will be back. Thank you Sri Gogineni!! We were blessed.

As always it was a pleasure to host Kim and her family (for the third time).
Disney's Magic II review - Disney Magic II
Disney's Magic II was a great place to stay for my group! The house was large enough that everyone had a place to sleep, while providing a quiet area for them to rest while preparing for events. The pool was a great add on. While we wish the hot tub was working, the pool was definitely an added plus. The house was also in a location that was really close to the ESPN complex so we could get their in a relative good time. I would recommend this to any group looking to stay somewhere for their Disney trip.
Michael Davis (Indian Trail, NC)

Unfortunately we were not aware that the jets in the spa did not work for these guests as they did not contact us during their stay. We have taken care of this now.
A great place to stay - Timon's Magic
Timon's Magic was a perfect place to stay for my family while we were in Orlando. The amenities were like home away from home and the area is pretty quiet. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay while visiting the area!

Great vacation home - Goofy's Magic

Great Accommodations! - Florida Magic
I read all of the reviews before choosing a place to stay, and what you see in photos is what you get. It was a perfect fit for a family of 7. We were very pleased with the accommodations and the quiet gated area. It was close to the parks, restaurants, etc. The only negative thing was, there were not enough wash cloths for the number of people staying there. It's great to have a washer and dryer also, but I think there should be at least one towel and one wash cloth for each person. We made do with what we had. It would have been helpful to have a dish cloth and dish towel to do dishes by hand, when we just had a few dishes to wash, instead of using the dishwasher. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks!
J Klopfenstein (Pleasant Hill, IA)
Jul 14, 2019
We appreciate this family for choosing one of our villas and for their time to post this review. We thank these guests for letting us know that the towels and dishcloths are a little low at the villa. We alerted our property manager to supply more.
Lovely home - Emerald Magic
You have a lovely home. Thank you for sharing it with our family. We had a great stay.

Fantastic! Will rent again! - Baloo's Magic
Had 4 adults and 2 children in our party. The house was clean and well maintained. Only issue we had was the outside grill propane tank was empty. I contacted Sri and by the next day, we had a full tank. All the Disney Parks were less than 10 minutes away..even with the traffic on the 192. Very, very pleased and we WILL be renting from Sri again.

Amazing Stay - Dory's Magic
We had an amazing time staying at Dory’ Magic! The house was beautiful and clean when we arrived! We were very comfortable in the house. This house and community was so close not just to Disney, but to restaurants, grocery stores as well as souvenir shops! We will definitely be looking forward to returning and staying again!!

Great place to stay - Florida Magic
If you are looking to save money and sleep safely this is the place. The villa was great. It slept 6 adults, 2 big kids, and 2 little kids comfortably. The gated community gave comfort knowing our stuff was safe. Both Disney and Universal are so close. There was access to common pool, but it closes at 10, wished it closed at 11.

Awesome Resort - Emerald Magic
The rental home was exactly what my family needed for vacation. The home had the perfect setup for adults as well as the children! The home is very spacious and up-to-date with modern decorations. The pool and game room were a great hit for the entire family. The outside landscape and clubhouse was also clean and well manicured. My family enjoyed walking the nature trail and playing basketball on the resort’s court. My family had an awesome time in Orlando! Our stay at Emerald Island was all very positive

The Best - Baloo's Magic
We loved our stay at Baloo's Magic! The house was stocked with everything we needed. It was 15 min to Disney Parks (no traffic problems). The neighborhood was safe, house was very clean. It is close to many grocery stores and restaurants. Loved our stay!

Great home for large group! - Dory's Magic
I recently stayed at Dory’s Magic for a family gathering and vacation. It was absolutely perfect for our group which consisted of 11 adults, 3 teens and two children under age 5. We had ample room to spread out and move about the house. Plenty of bathroom space and the patio and pool holds more people than meets the eye in pictures. We spent our time at the Disney parks and it was a very short drive to each of them. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the area with a large group. The only drawback was the alarm sounding off going out the back sliding glass door. It is a law that homes will pools have one and it took our group a day or two to get the hang of remembering to press the button before going out. Just something to keep in mind if you have light sleepers or small children, as the alarm is quite loud. But definitely a wonderful home in a wonderful location!!
Darlene Bourque (USA)
Jun 11, 2019
We thank these guests for renting one of our villas and their valuable feedback. As these guests mentioned, pool door alarms are mandatory per state law. The fact that the alarms were loud enough suggests that our little guests who may want to adventure in to the pool area without dis-arming the pool door alarms will be kept safe by parents who will be alerted. Pool alarms can be disabled by adults only.
Nemo Magical House - Nemo's Magic
The house was really nice and clean. It looked just like pictures that are posted online. The resort itself is very well maintained and the staff that we encountered at the gate and welcome center was very nice, pleasant, and very helpful. The only problem we had at the house was there was not enough towels available for us. We had to wash towels every day. I recommend you guys provide maybe at least 2 sets of towels per number of guest for the house. Also the propane tank was empty so we couldn’t enjoy grilling while sitting by the pool....Overall I would definitely recommend this house and/or resort
Danielle Bynum (Addis, LA)
Jun 10, 2019
We thank these guests for renting one of our villas and their valuable feedback. We will check the supply of towels in this villa and act as needed. A quick phone call to our management company or us is all that would have been required to get some more towels or a refill of propane tank. We also reimburse guests who exchange the propane tank outside of normal business hours with a valid receipt.
Nice, well kept villa - Disney Magic
Nice, well kept. Need to provide more household supplies such as toilet paper, trash bags and paper towels. We stayed a full week. One roll of toilet paper and paper towels and 4 trash bags just isn't enough.
Darrell Knapp (Duncan, OK)
Jun 03, 2019
We are pleased that these guests chose our villa for their week-long vacation and are happy to know that they found the villa nice and well kept. Consistent with self-catering vacation rental standards, we provide starter rolls of toilet paper in all bathrooms, starter pack with paper towels, dish and laundry supplies to get through the first night's stay. Additional supplies are guest responsibility as mentioned in the advert and welcome docs that are sent ahead of arrival. We will be glad to have these guests back as they were a pleasure to work with.
Highly recommend - Emerald Magic

Amazing - Lilo's Magic
We stayed for 10 days in Lilo's magic. Everything was amazing. My family loved the pool, and spent alot of time in it. My daughter loved the Minnie Mouse room and my husband and son loved having the pool table there. The close proximity to Disney and all other area attractions was great. The home was very clean and beautiful. Sri is very responsive to messages and very easy to work with. The neighborhood is very beautiful. I highly recommend this vacation home and will be returning on future visits. 5 stars

Our Stay at Rafiki's Magic - Rafiki's Magic
We had a wonderful time in Rafiki's Magic. The house was very spacious and comfortable with a huge kitchen area and many bathrooms. The pool and hot tub were big hits. And when we had questions, such as how to connect to the internet, we had very quick, next morning service, to resolve the issues.

Absolutely loved the house, the pool alarm on the door did drive me a weeeee bit nutz. Lots of room and space we would certainly book this house again.
Andrea Carlson (Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada)
Mar 21, 2019
We would like to thank these guests for spending their vacation at Dory's Magic and glad they enjoyed the room and space of the villa. The pool door alarms are a legal and safety requirement to prevent small kids from entering the pool area unsupervised. We understand it might be an inconvenience, but a necessary one. We will be pleased to have these guests in the future, they were wonderful to work with.
Amazing quality - Baloo's Magic
We love staying at Emerald Island....our 3rd time. Close to everything and surrounded by all the amenities you need! HIGHLY recommend.

Wonderful Private Large House for Family Vacation - Disney Magic
We had a terrific week at Disney Magic...Everything about the home was just as described - spacious, clean, and well appointed. Some areas of the house were recently upgraded which were terrrific and an indication of the trend of the decorations to come. The kids particularly loved the GAME ROOM at this property. The community is great and about 15 minutes from the entgrance to the Walt Disney World property as well as local interstate highway. Easily accessible. Look forward to visiting again.

The agent for Emerald Island Rentals (Sri) was helpful, courteous and responsive throughout the rental process and during our stay. The unit met our needs and was conveniently located. Enjoyed the amenities at the resort though we would have preferred that the fitness center opened before 8 AM.

Spacious and clean villa - Nemo's Magic
The house was spacious and clean. Our original property (from another booking firm) fell through the day we arrived so we needed to get something very quickly. We booked it on Thursday night for the next 8 days. We received a call from the property manager within 15 minutes of booking which quickly set our minds at ease. The only issue we had was very slow wi-fi even after we rebooted the box. A big bonus for us was the gas BBQ which was included.

Simba’s Magic was excellent!! - Simba's Magic
We had a great stay February 2019. This house was exactly as described and the pictures show every room as they are. We didn’t have any immediate issues that needed to be fixed during our stay but I texted Sri and they were going to fix it immediately after we left— these issues were one of the media room chairs wouldn’t work and a light in a bedroom was blown— nothing major that didn’t keep us from having an amazing stay! Quiet neighborhood! The beds slept comfortably, thenkids especially loved the bunk room and the game room!! If you’re looking for a place to stay especially with a large group this is the place to stay!! We had 10 in our group and we could have added another family of 6 and everyone would have a bed to sleep in!! Also... it was about a 10-20 minute drive from Disney and about 30-35 from universal. Check out Simba’s Magic if you’re looking for a cheaper location that staying in the park!!

We stayed with our family and my in laws at Disney Magic for a week and it was great! Any time we had an issue arise, like us not being able to turn the hot tub on which was an oversight on our part, Sri made sure to help us and handle it right away! He even sent his management team right over to show us how to work it. The house was beautiful and well equipped. My kids did not want to leave! Thank you so much Sri for your fast responses and for a great stay for our family vacation to Disney World!

Rental home assessment in Emerald Island Resort - Emerald Magic
Very enjoyable but hot tub/pool required some help before it worked. Light over BBQ worked intermittently only. But we enjoyed ourselves. We left a Christmas tree and a good frying pan.
David J Paterson (Lakeshore, Onrario, Canada)
Jan 09, 2019
We appreciate these guests for spending their Christmas at our villa. They were very pleasant to work. The pool heat did not reach desired temperatures due to extremely cold night temperatures and rains for a few days, but after that, everything was fine. We thank the guests for leaving a frying pan though we would have bought it for the house had we been informed of a need. We left a lighter in the kitchen in case the complementary grill does not light-up with switch. We thank these guests for their stay and feedback.
Vacation Stay in Emerald Island Resort, Florida - Tigger's Magic
This is the first time my family has spent a Christmas / New Year vacation outside of Bermuda overseas and it was wonderful. The house was exactly what we needed and it surpassed our expectations when we got there. It was clean and had everything I asked for; i.e. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen supplies and a pool. The location was also perfect as easy to find. The other areas were only 15 minutes away from Emerald Island Resort and the fun parks were close also. We will definitely look to rent another house in this resort and recommend this to our family and friends.

Our Stay in Tropical Magic - Tropical Magic
Our family of nine - six adults and three chiildren, grandparents, children and grandchildren, enjoyed our time at Emerald Island Tropical Magic. The community is lovely and very well maintained. Having a secured entrance to the subdivision made us all feel comfortable. The house was very spacious and well equipped. Lots of towels for using in the pool and ample bedding. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, pots and pans. Having a washer and dryer was great. There was access to tech throughout the house and was appreciated by everyone. We had a few questions when we first arrived and had all of them answered very quickly. The door to the patio/pool area is very large and heavy. It prevented the children from accessing the pool area which was a good thing but it was difficult to move even for the adults. Minor problem. Not all the front light censors worked but it did not affect our stay. Great place to stay with families or large groups.
Elizabeth Goodwin (Ontario, Canada)

We would like to thank these guests for spending their Dec holdiays in our villa. We will have our maintenance check the sliding door as well as the motion lights (mostly the switch must habve been turned-off inside).
Nice property, close to Disney - Nemo's Magic
Nice property, close to major parks, easy check-in/out process, quick responses from the owner. All good! I would recommend this place.

Very nice large Vila. Worked great for our vacation - Disney Magic

Perfect space for our family of 7. Very comfortable. Great location!

The home was very nice and clean. It was a pleasure arriving late and find everything perfect for us. We will certainly think of this house again in our future visits to Orlando.

Fantastic location, lovely villa - Tropical Magic
We rented Tropical Magic as part of our holiday to America. We decided on the villa as it is in a fantastic location and proximity to a lot of shops, restaurants and of course the main attraction, Disney. This was our 6th visit to Orlando and we have stayed in a variety of locations and always in a villa except the very first time. staying where we did this time saved us a fair bit of travelling and makes you feel like you are staying just outside the thick of it. Emerald Island itself is a beautiful community. Everything is very well manicured, the streets are tree lined which is a very nice touch (something we have not had in may other communities), the entrance makes you feel a little like a superstar with its dolphin fountains and large arches. The security gates too give you the comfort of safety. The villa itself was lovely. we chose the 6 bed as we had plans of meeting family from the UK in Orlando and we flew in from Australia. The UK part of the family had issues with visas which meant we had the villa all to ourselves. Four of us. Two boys aged 15 and 12 and my wife and I. My two boys now had the luxury of the King sized bed each and an en suite each too. Something they have never experienced before. The beds were extremely comfortable, the walk in wardrobes were a very good size and the whole house has a very nice feel about it. We used the cinema room in the garage and set up the projector to watch some movies on the comfy chairs and I know I fell asleep during the movies due to the comfort of the chairs. There is a lot of space to sit outside by the pool and the house has a bench plastic tub full of pool toys which presumably have been left by other guests. We had lilo races and enjoyed floating around on the pool on the inflatable flamingo and swan ( fell asleep again) The kitchen has a good feel to it especially with the breakfast bar being so large. We utilized that very often while watching friends on the TV. The coffee machine also came in very handy and was lovely that it makes a full pot. there were actually two kettles in the kitchen, something I could see that would have been used a lot if the house was as full as wed planned so this was good to see. All in all we had a great time and will definitely consider one of the villas in Emerald Island again when we visit next.

Expect exactly as advertised - Emerald Magic
You can expect exactly what it says it has. Very nice, clean and spacious house. The house we stayed at had a big game room, from table games to TV games. The pool and jacuzzi area was clean and nice as well. The host Sri answers very fast and at some point even helped with getting us a bigger house that he thought would fit my group better. Will definitely be staying in his homes again in the future.

Amazing Stay! - Lilo's Magic
This was my family's second stay at this villa, we rented it in 2016 and couldn't think of a better place to stay for our return Disney vacation. Sri was amazing to work with, prompt and courteous regarding all our concerns. The home was spotless and well maintained. We loved the addition of the game room with pool table and our family enjoyed spending time there. The home had everything we needed and the convenience of having a fully equipped kitchen made traveling with small children so much easier. On top of all of the other great features of the home is the location. We absolutely love the location of Emerald Island Resort. The resort community is gated and quiet but just a short drive from a variety of restaurants,shopping and of course Disney. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended to friends and family!

Everything was wonderful!! Amazing house! Will definitely be returning!! - Simba's Magic
OMG!!! Syri(Sri) was awesome. We arrived earlier than anticipated and couldn't get in because the access is programmed for 4:00 pm. I called Syri and he contacted the manager (to check whether the house was inspected or not) and we were able to check in a little early. There were a few minor problems but he was on it right away. The pics were just like the house, AMAZING!!! My family and I really enjoyed ourselves and will be renting again soon!!! Thanks for an wonderful 3 days!!! Stephanie S

8 adults on family tour Stayed at this villa - Tropical Magic
We have just spent a magical fortnight in Orlando - the villa location and amenities were perfect for our family of 8 adults. Easy to get to all disney and universal parks with Walmart store nearby for all your supplies. Lots of space so we were never crowded and instant response to fix a light which wasn't working when we arrived.

Enjoyed our first trip to Orlando - Tigger's Magic
My family of 6 spent 7 days at Tiggers Magic. The home was PERFECT. The house had plenty of space for all of us. It was clean, and bright. Of course the main feature for the kids was the pool. The screened in patio/pool made lounging outside comfortable at all times. Something I really appreciated was the pool being enclosed. I have twin 3 yr olds and they could not get to the pool without an adult. The doors to the back are also equipped with alarms. I would only suggest that the outdoor furniture get a good power wash or bleaching. Overall I would definitely return to Tiggers magic!

Family Vacation - Tropical Magic
Our family had a wonderful vacation at tropical magic. The kids and grandkids had more fun at the house than at the parks. The house is well laid out and has planty of different spots for each member to relax on their own. The house was clean on arrival, and everything worked as it should. We felt safe in the community. This is a quiet area without much traffic. We plan to return next year. Thank you for having a magical place for our vacation

I will definitely stay here again! - Timon's Magic
We recently visited Disney for a 4-day vacation with our two 5-year-old granddaughters, son, and daughter-in-law. We originally booked Shades of Green as we are a military family. However, my son mentioned the Emerald Isle Resort area, staying there before for softball. We booked Timon's Magic and was not disappointed. Although the beds could use some updating, the house was comfortable and afforded all of the comforts of home. The house supplied all linens, plenty of pillows, cookware, etc., so there was nothing we needed to pack or buy other than food! After a full day of park fun, it was nice to come home to a hot shower and comfy bed to crash into. Booking was easy and the resort was safe and secluded from busy resort guests. There are pools and a tiki bar if you want to spend time at the resort itself. I will definitely stay here again!

Our Magical Florida Vacation - Emerald Magic
This was not my first time staying in Emerald Island resort and definitely not my last. Originally I found their add in a Parent's Magazine, thinking if it is in that magazine it has to be a good place and I was not disappointed. The houses look as they do in the pictures, all are decorated beautifully and are equipped with everything you would need. We stayed in a six bedroom home with enough bathrooms for everyone. The private pool was amazing, the kids loved it and we were able to sit on the patio and watch them. Very relaxing, The garage/game room was also a plus. The homes are very clean and well maintained. The owner answered our inquiries promptly. Also, the location is great, only about 10 minutes from the parks, and what a relaxing place to come home to after an exhausting day. I can't say enough, I LOVE it there.

Our Visit to Emerald Island - Rafiki's Magic
We had a wonderful time at our villa, and so did our children and grandchildren. The villa was very spacious with many bedrooms, bathrooms, a game room, televisions, a dvd player, dvds, books, magazines, games, and a spacious kitchen and dining room. We frequently used the heated, private pool. Our contact, Sri Gogineni, was extremely helpful and answered any questions immediately, whether we called or emailed. We certainly hope to return in the future.

I am very happy to write about my stay at Mickeys Magic. We had a great vacation with my grandkids, it is a very good location to visit the theme parks and sports arenas.The management responded to my concerns and I found everything I needed in the villa. I recommend this villa, I would only recommend six people sleeping comfortably because the sofa does not work as an option

Emerald Island Resort 7-bed - Disney Magic
We booked this magnificent house just two days prior to our trip. Sri G the manager of the property was very quick in his responses and answered any and all of the questions I had just as fast. It was a very smooth process and the two families that stayed in the beautiful home had the best time ever with all the amenities it had to offer. I would strongly recommend this home and any of the others that Sri G manages!!!!

Excellent Stay - Dory's Magic
I had 9 people with me visiting the Disney World parks between 2/22/18 and 2/25/18. First for a large group of people you can't beat the price of staying at one of these houses. This particular house had more than enough bedrooms and still cost a fraction of the cost if we booked a hotel inside of Disney. We could of easily fit 2 more families. It is conveniently located within a 10 minute drive of Disney and there are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets close by. The place itself was clean and we didn't have any issues while we were there. The place has security when entering and leaving so you know you're in good hands. The place I stayed had a pool which looked lovely, but I spent most of my times at the park. I highly recommend staying here especially if you are going to Disney with a lot of people and staying multiple days.

Great villa, pool in a fantastic location - Simba's Magic
The villa was in a fantastic location only 20 mins from Disney and about 35 mins from universal. The bedrooms were ample for our family of 12 including 7 adults and 5 kids. The pool was warm and clean. Would definitely recommend.

We would like to thank these guests for their stay and for a valuable review. It was a pleasure having them as our guests. It appears that these guests may not have taken the short route to Disney (which we explain in the welcome docs and on the website) that only takes 5 minutes to be in Disney.

All was well except.... - Emerald Magic
All was very good with the exception of the heating of the water for the hot tub and pool. The instructions were followed explicitly but no heated water came out of the system. To the best of my knowledge, we paid an additional amount for hot water in advance. The last-minute upgrade to a better facility was most appreciated by our entire party. I am very grateful for your attention to detail and I hope to return to Emerald Island again. In addition, I will recommend your resort to all my associates in the Buffalo area as well.

We appreciate that these guests took the time to write a review and gave us valuable feedback. It really helps us. We did an investigation into what happened as we were not aware of any issues with the pool heat until we saw the review as these guests did not inform us during their stay. A phone call during their stay would have quickly and easily resolved the pool heat issue for them. As we investigated further, here is what we found: these guests were relocated to the Emerald Magic - 6 bed home as a result of a electric system failure at the 5 bedroom home they originally booked. As a result, we upgraded and moved these guests to this larger home at no additional cost. During this process, our local management company missed to put the pool heat ON. We expressed our regrets for this inconvenience and refunded the pool heat sum to these guests.
Excellent house, great vacation! - Dory's Magic
Excellent house, great vacation! My family and I gathered from across the globe and all over the U.S. at this wonderful house. It was very comfortable, spacious and cozy at the same time. Very well kept and well appointed. We had a total of 10 people in our group, the house could accommodate more. Very clean! Most importantly, it was exactly as advertised.

2017 Family Christmas Vacation Homes - Emerald Magic
We spent our 2017 family Christmas Vacation at the Emerald Magic and Disney Magic II properties. We found the accommodations to be warm and inviting and very family-friendly. Everyone from our 92 year old grandmother to the 20 something young adults enjoyed the stylish decor. The children loved the game room and the Disney themes throughout the properties but the overall winner was the heated pool (complete with water wings and pool toys) and not to mention the colored pool lights for late night swims. The gated community felt safe and the property management team was very accommodating. We would highly recommend these properties and look forward to visiting them again.

Great location - Dory's Magic
We stayed at Sri’s Place for couple of nights and we had a lot of fun time there. The place was exactly same as it looks in the pictures. It was clean and tidy and had all we needed . We love the game room and the living room area the most . Sri was quick in responding to our queries . So I would say it was great to be there . And I would definitely like to stay again there and highly recommend his place.
