Emerald Island Resort - for those looking for a great vacation! - Pluto's Magic
We had a wonderful time staying in Pluto's Magic. So very close to Animal Kingdom and shopping. Everyone had a great time ... pool was warm, played pool in the game room, tv and videos ... would recommend Emerald Island Resort to all who are looking for a great vacation.

Fabulous Holiday Vacation home - Emerald Magic
We had a fabulous holiday here. The villa was very clean and well furnished and the pool area was lovely as well as always having sunshine due to south facing aspect. Close to all the parks. We felt save as the resort has a gated entry and the villa had an alarm system. Woud definately reccomend this spacious house as well as thinking of staying there again. Great house, great location and we had a great holiday. Thank you to the ownwers for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home.

Fantastic Emerald Island Resort Rental - Disney Magic
The Emerald Island Rental was fantastic for the weekend. We had a total of 14 guest that slept over and everyone was accomodated. The carpet on the 2nd floor was brand new and everything worked as expected. I would recommend this to anyone going on a vaction or short trip to Orlando, FL. Perfect vacation rental.

Sri and his staff are fantastic, we are renting one of their villas again. - Disney Magic
My family and I just returned home from our vacation and every morning wish we were sitting by the pool at Disney Magic still. The house was beautiful, very close to all the disney parks and a great place to come home to after long disney days. Sri and his management staff are fantastic, We will definately stay in one of their villas again. Thank you so much for making our vacation a wonderful experience!

Loved staying at Emerald Magic vacation rental - Emerald Magic
Loved staying in Emerald Magic, I own a vacation rental and am particular about details. I will say that Sri had thought of everything to make our stay wonderful. It truly is just a short drive to Disney, very close to shopping, plenty of room, clean, grounds well kept. We will difinitely stay here when we come back to Orlando. My husband and his two brothers enjoyed the game room the most.

This Vacation home had everything we needed - Emerald Magic
It was such a pleasure staying in the house. Everyone in my family loved it. Everything we needed was at the house. My wife and I forgot to buy a stroller at the airport and was going to buy one later. However, we were glad when we saw an extra stroller in the house. The place was exactly as described on the website and the management responses were quick. I will recommend it to my coworkers. Thanks.

Wonderful vacation home near Disney World - Mickey's Magic
Sri, Thank you for a wonderful stay...the house was in very nice condition and so close to all of the attractions! The conveniences of home made the trip with the children much smoother! We also enjoyed the pool and amenities. I would gladly recommend the property to anyone. Thank you for the prompt refund and professional service.

Wonderful Townhouse in Emerald Island Resort - Mickey's Magic
I stayed at Mickey Mouse Villa from Aug 11 - 18 with my daughter & her friend. They were standing for a wedding at Disney. The townhouse was wonderful. The welcoming pkg was great as our flight never got in til 12:30 a.m. & we never arrived til 2:30 a.m. The townhouse was fully equipped with everything we needed even a washer & dryer. Thanks again for everything.

We will be back to this villa next year - Mickey's Magic
My family stayed in Mickey's Magic villa for 6 days on vacation In August 2011 and had a wonderful time. The house was awesome, made our vacation nice and relaxing. The villa was well maintained, spacious and comfortable. The amenities were great and the club house was perfect for the kids, they loved the pool. The location of the villa was "GREAT" very close to all Disney parks, stores and restaurants. I would highly recommend this property to anyone vacationing in Orlando. We will be back next year!

We had a wonderful time at Disney Magic villa - Disney Magic
I recently returned from a weekend stay at the Disney Magic home. It was exactly as described. We had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed the home, especially the pool and game room. Sri was wonderful to deal with and always returned calls and emails quickly. I even received my deposit back in less than a week. I would highly recommend this home!!

Clean villa, very close to Disney - Mickey's Magic
We stayed for 3 weeks in July 2011 at the villa and had a great time.After travelling for 18 hours all of us were really tired and thirsty really enjoyed and appreciated the welcome pack with its cold orange ,water and cola from the fridge. The villa was very clean and the fact that we had access to the internet and free telephone calls was a great convenient service as we had to keep intouch with the UK . The location of the villa was excellent for the disney theme parks and access to the I 4 which was the main connection for shopping malls and other cities.We enjoyed the use of the pool area and spa pool at the end of the day after the heat and standing waiting in queues for the rides at the parks. We would definately recommend this villa.

Comfortable and nicely furnished villa - Mickey's Magic
We stayed at Mickey's Magic for a week-long family vacation that included three teenagers. It was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. The resort neighborhood is also quite nice, although to be honest we spent very little time there because we were at Disney as much as possible. The location was very convenient to WDW, with Animal Kingdom being the closest at approximately a 10 minute drive. Restaurants are close by and the resort is easy to find from the highway. This was a great choice for our family -- just enough space to feel comfortable at a fraction of the price we would have spent if we stayed is Disney resorts. We enjoyed it very much.

The house was beautiful and, more importantly, CLEAN. - Disney Magic
My family of five, my son's best friend, my mother (who is recovering from chemotherapy), and my best friend, her son and his girlfriend all stayed at Disney Magic the week of Jun 11 through Jun 18. We all had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and, more importantly, CLEAN. We all enjoyed the gameroom and the pool. My mother especially loved sitting by the pool relaxing. As hot as it was that week, we were all in the pool every single day, every spare minute we had. The owner, Sri, worked with us every step of the way. My husband is a nervous nellie when it comes to handing over his credit card information and my goodness, did Sri reassure us everything was legitimate. Both families have stayed on Disney at one of their resorts in years past, but we all agreed that it was sooooo wonderful not having to wait for buses to take us everywhere. We were able to hop in our rented mini vans and travel anywhere without waiting. The directions provided to us made traveling so easy. We even traveled to Cocoa beach twice. Needless to say, we all had a fantastic time. Would highly recommend Disney Magic to large groups--there is so much room.

The location of the villa was perfect, very close to all Disney Parks - Disney Magic
My family stayed in Disney Magic villa for 4 day vacation June 2011 and had a wonderful time. The house was well maintained and spacious. The amenities were great and the pool was especially a huge hit with the kids. The location of the villa was perfect, very close to all Disney parks and shopping. I would highly recommend this property to other large families planning Orlando vacations.

Perfect vacation home close to all attractions - Disney Magic
Walt Disney World has Magic Kingdom and staying at Emerald Island Resort was like Magic Kingdom for me and my family. The home had all the amenities you can imagine. The game room and swimming pool were awesome. Yes I repeat they were awesome. The yards and the grounds were well maintained. Our home was the 7 bed villa and it was more than enough room for our family of 10.The price was definitely economical and made our trip to Disney affordable. The property management company responded quickly to our concerns. Sri thank you for making our stay at Emerald Island a wonderful experience.

Best vacation home I have ever stayed - Mickey's Magic
We stayed for 5 days at the Magic Mickey villa and I have to say it was one of the best vacation I have ever had. The place was clean and very close to Disney Magic Kingdom. If you go with more than 4 people, I would recommend staying at this place. Hopefully I can take another vacation back to Orlando Florida!

Very pleased with our week stay at Mickeys Magic Villa - Mickey's Magic
We were very pleased with our week stay at Mickeys Magic Villa. Everything was just as Sri said. Very comfortable and relaxing enviroment. Villa has everything you need on your stay, even welcomed with food for you first night stay. You are also only a few minutes away from Disney World. We will definitely contact Sri when we plan on visiting again.

We loved the accommodations of the house - Emerald Magic
A total of 5 adults and 3 children (ages 9, 10, & 13) stayed in the Emerald Magic 6 bedroom home from April 23-30. We loved the accommodations of the house, especially the 4 king sized master suites. This allowed all to have the privacy needed, yet when together the living areas were more than ample for our needs. We chose the house over a villa because of the private pool. It was great to come home mid day from the parks (or early in the am before leaving) and let the kids swim without having to leave the comfort of home. We heated the pool and spa for the first 4 days. While the pool stayed warm (approx. 87 degrees) we did miss having the heat in the spa the last few days and would pay for the heat the whole week next time. Sri was a great host and the home lived up to expectations. What you see on-line is what you get. He is very accurate on location, directions and drive times. As stated, the resort is just a few miles from Disney property. We would all stay at this home and resort again and we would recommend our family and friends to do the same. Thank you Sri.

Absolutely loved the Mickey's Magic Villa - Mickey's Magic
Absolutely loved the Mickey's Magic Villa. Kids loved the video game system, close to disney, all the ammenities, pool party with DJ and gift of food upon arrival :) Husband and I are already talking about booking again with Sri for next year and we just got back. We would recommend this place to all of our friends and family. Thank you for a positive memorable vacation.

Sri is a great host for a hassle free vacation. - Mickey's Magic
For a great week in a first class property look no further! My wife and I brought our two daughters and their families to Mickey's Playhouse last week and we had a great time in spite of several days of rain. Sri is a great host who has equipped his properties with everything you would ever need for a hassle free vacation. We made good use of the pools, the tennis courts, children's play area, nature trail, and even fished in the pond! My wife loved the fact that we had a washer and dryer in the house and everyone loved the free wi fi and DVD collection. The resort is secluded, yet only a mile or so from a Publix Market and Super Target. If Disney is your thing, you couldn't get much closer without actually being on their property. We'll be back!

Pleasant experience renting villa from Sri - Disney Magic
My family had the pleasure of staying at "Disney Magic" earlier this year. This house was everything Sri had told me it was. We all were more than pleased. I couldn't have asked for it to be any nicer. We were pleasantly surprised to have some food, coffee and juice provided to start our first morning there. In addition to all this, it was such a pleasant experience to work with Sri in renting his house. When I would call him he was either there or would return my call almost immediatley. He was never too busy to answer my questions. I would certainly recommend Disney Magic to anyone traveling to the Orlando area.

Absolutely loved the Mickey's Magic Villa - Mickey's Magic
My wife and I had a great one month stay in Mickey's Magic. We especially loved sitting in the late afternoon on the patio and watching the exotic long-legged birds and ducks on the pond. And the villa was immaculate. Bravo, Sri!

Perfect Emerald Island Orlando accommodation - Disney Magic
We stayed at the 7 bedroom house at Emerald Island Resort and had an absolutely great time. The accommodations were perfect for our party of 11 (6 adults and 5 kids). The house is very nicely decorated and the game room was great for the kids. We would highly recommend this property to family and friends to stay at.

Spacious and comfortable accommodation - Emerald Magic
My family and our group of friends had just returned from our holiday trip to Orlando. Although the weather could have been better, we enjoyed staying at the Emerald Magic. The property was spacious and comfortable, allowing everyone room for solitude as well as getting together. The game room was great both for the kids as well as adults. The gated community was quiet and peaceful. Sri was very responsive and easy to deal with. I highly recommend this house.

Great vacation home and what you see, is what you get! - Mickey's Magic
We just returned from a fantastic stay at Mickey's Magic. There were five adults and three young children. The condo was clean, well-equipted, and so convenient to Disney World. After driving all the way from Missouri, how thoughtful it was to find a carton of eggs, bread, and milk awaiting us. It was greatly appreciated. When you view the pictures of the condo, we can tell you honestly, that what you see, is what you get! We have already started planning our next visit! Thanks Sri, for making this vacation such a wonderful experience for our family!

Wonderful stay at Emerald Magic villa, Emerald Island - Emerald Magic
We have just arrived back from a wonderful stay at Emerald Magic. We were a group of 11 and we all thought the villa was fantastic. The villa was in excellent condition and had everything that we required. There was plenty of space for everyone and the games room and pool was fab. We have visited Orlando many times and to be honest this has been the best villa we have stayed in and will definitely be rebooking in the future. We even tried to prelong our visit but unfortunately the villa was already rented out. The homeowner Sri was extremely helpful and even found us another villa to stay in. Thank you so much.

This house was the best we've seen in Emerald Island - Emerald Magic
We stayed at Emerald Magic over the summer and it was wonderful. My family and I take a family trip each year to Florida and this house was the best we've seen. The property is well taken care of, very clean and has everything you'll need for your stay. We were there 10 days and enjoyed every moment. Sri was very easy to work with as we planned our stay. We definitely will be going back for a second stay, and maybe even a third. So if you're looking for a great place to spend your vacation, look no further, this house is what you're looking for.

We are already missing Kissimmee - Mickey's Magic
Sri, we would like to thank you for our holidays. We really feel at home. The place was great, close to many shops, to Disney...!! We find everything we need in the house as you describe it. We were glad to deal with you. You were answering on time every question we have you make us feel comfortable with everything. If we have to come back again, it would be a pleasure to rent an house from you. Now we came back to Paris but we already miss Kissimmee!

We highly recommend this Emerad Island vacation house - Emerald Magic
We just returned from our vacation and would not only highly recommend this house but look forward to staying there again! We loved the proximity to the parks and the back road directions. There were five adults and four children (ages 5&2) in our party and we all enjoyed the game room and coming back for a swim after a hot day at the parks. Traveling with children can be challenging but we were able to relax in this house as it was very child friendly. We all enjoyed the amenities, had plenty of room and look forward to staying there again!

Townhouse was very impressive and looked exactly as the pictures - Mickey's Magic
Our family just stayed at the Mickey's Magic 6/26/10 - 7/3/10. The Townhouse was very impressive and looked exactly as the pictures represented. The view from the back into the reservior was very relaxing just to sit out view the lake. All the kitchen appliances you'd need to make meals were on hand, and the community center was just a short distance away to enjoy the pool and other ammentities. We had a great time and Owners couldn't have been more helpful with the booking and questions posed. Will book again next year!

Amazing accommodations for Orlando Trip - Emerald Magic
Thank you Sri! If anyone is planning a trip to Orlando and need space this is the place for you. Amazing accommodations. The online photos and video tour don't do it justice. Washer and dryer are key. The pool and lanai are awesome. We would have paid 2 to 3 times more for a Disney property for my family of 6 plus the in-laws. And we didn't use two of the bedrooms! The kids loved the game room. We felt secure having a gate and security guard. Two back roads, less than 5 minutes, and you are on the Disney property. We experienced zero traffic! Being our first time to Disney, I was concerned about driving to the parks. It was a breeze! Sri makes the rental process seamless. I would rent this home again whenever in the Orlando area.

A great place to come 'home' to after a busy Orlando day - Mickey's Magic
We stayed at Mickey's Magic in the middle of May 2010 and we had a great time. The condo is in great condition and the resort was peaceful. A great place to come 'home' to after a busy Orlando day. The owner was very responsive to any particular requests we had. Best of all, he had refunded the full deposit by the time we got home. Can't wait to return again for another great

Five Star Emmerald Island Villa - Emerald Magic
When we arrived at Emmerald Island, we were pleasantly surprised. The House was as good if not better than it was advertised. We had 6 Adults and 5 childern, ranging from 6 to 16. On the fourth day of our stay we asked the Kids witch day they liked the best so far and they commented that they like Sunday the best. That was the day we stayed at the house, swam & had a BBQ. They really enjoyed having the privat pool. The Bedrooms were all excellent, Everyone had their own bathroom, and we would recommend it to everyone. We Give it (5 Stars).

A great experience - Mickey's Magic
Some friends and I stayed here on a week-long vacation to Orlando. It was a great experience, and so much nicer than staying in a hotel. There were a lot of amenities to the place, including breakfast in the fridge! It was also wonderful being so close to Disney World. I would recommend to anyone!

Emerald Magic vacation villa was excellent - Emerald Magic
Our recent stay at Emerald Magic was excellent. The house was very nice, clean and very well equipped. Our four children took advantage of the pool and the very well equipped games room. Mr Sri was excellent to deal with and his decription of the property and the pictures were exact. We have stayed at other properties and would have to say this was by far the nicest to date. The anxiety of wondering what we would find when we walked in was quickly put to rest when we viewed this beatiful house. The management group was also very good to deal with. Having such a postive experience with our four children, I would recommend this property to everyone. Thank You Mr. Sri for helping make our family vacation one that my children will remember forever.

Emerald Island Resort was a great place to stay - Mickey's Magic
My family's stay at the Emerald Island Resort was a very good one. After spending days at the theme parks, it was nice to come home to conveniently located and comfortable villa. Mr. Sri was very helpful over the phone in setting up the reservation and any questions that we had. I would recommend this vacation home.

Our stay at the Emerald Magic villa was awesome! - Emerald Magic
Our stay at the Emerald Magic was awesome! I have stayed at a vacation home but this was my first time personally renting one and Mr. Sri made that experience to be a great one! The house is EXACTLY what you see in the pictures, no less. There is more than enough towels and extra blankets and pillows to accomodate your stay. The house is equipped with a pool alarm which is great if you will have little ones around. The house is stocked with DVD's to watch and games to play which saves room for packing. There are plenty utensils for your cooking needs. If you need to print last minute tickets for attractions the guest/club house is well equipped to help. There is even a tiki bar there! I found the property managers to be lovely, wonderful people after getting to know them. I am very pleased with our stay at Emerald Magic and look forward to staying again in the future!!

An excellent house with all the amenities - Emerald Magic
This is an excellent house with all the amenities. It is roomy and the 4 suite bedrooms served our business trip well. It also allowed our sales team room to spread out. This would also be a great family vacation destination.

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 vis...
