Great location - Stitch's Magic
We stayed at the home for 4 days on a recent vacation. Home is in a great location to all major attractions. Home is nice and clean. Property is in a gated community and everyone was very nice. Our Contact was very responsive and adaptable to our needs. Great stay and will use again.

Our vacation was beyond our expectations - Pluto's Magic
Hi Sri, I want to thank you for everything. Our vacation was over our expectations. The hospitality from everyone on the resort was very very good. The hoodie we left behind can be donated to whoever you want. We will for sure coming back to Orlando and our first choice will always be from you. The house was perfect for our family and I will warmly recommend you to our friends.

Absolutely Wonderful - Disney Magic
Disney Magic worked perfectly for our first family vacation with the grand children. The game room and pool kept everyone entertained, the bedrooms were spacious and there was more than enough room to spread out for a little privacy. Five minutes to Magic Kingdom and 20 minutes to Universal. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We will be back.

Pleasant Stay - Mufasa's Magic
I have to say that our stay was enjoyable. Any issues that we had were fixed immediately. I was very satisfied with the stay, customer service, and quick response to any issues. We'll be back. Thanks again for the memories.

Best Accommodation in Orlando - Simba's Magic
This has been amazing trip with my wife and several of my friends. We stayed at Simba's Magic, it was exactly as pictured or even better. Very spacious for our large party of 12. Lovely master bedroom, the guys took over the games room every night with many rounds of pool and video games, and the kids loved the pool and deck area! A very short 5 minute drive to all amenities including dozens of restaurants, grocery store, and gift shops. Disney Parks are maybe 8 mins away and Universal only 15-20 minutes depending on traffic. This is only way to vacation especially with close family or friends. Sri has been super helpful leading up to the trip and also the website will answer just about any question or query you will have with its extensive information. We will be back very soon, as 2 weeks was not enough time to enjoy and take in our new second home!

All of a day's hard work is quickly forgotten with guest comments like this. We are pleased to know Edwards family had a great stay and are absolutely thrilled that our villa was part of their vacation experience.
Excellent Villa - Tropical Magic
The villa was simply perfect - great location, spacious, clean, and with all amenities one could wish for. The owners are thoughtful and attentive. We have visited Florida many times and would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone - and are likely to return ourselves!

We would like to thank McKillop family for their stay at Tropical Magic. They are a great family to have and we would be glad to have them back in the future.
Beautiful place to stay - Stitch's Magic
The entrance was beautiful, people were very friendly. We had an issue with the grill, but I called and it was fixed that day. Screens were still broke from hurricane Irma, so bugs were getting inside the screen which made it had to sit outside but nothing we couldn’t handle. Pool was cold and come think about it, we should have opted for the pool heat, but my children didn’t mind. My family and I had an amazing time.
Billie Morton (Indianapolis, IN)
Oct 25, 2017
We thank this family for their stay and valuable feedback. We regret that some of the pool screens were still out when they vacationed. With the hurricane IRMA, the area was completely out of material to replace the pool screens. We now received the material and replaced screens across all homes including at Stitch's Magic.
Lovely house - Nemo's Magic
The 5 bedroom was perfect for my family. It didn't look big on the outside but was very spacious. Everything was in good working order and we enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the pool. A short drive to everything Disney, Universal Studios and outlet mall shopping. We will be booking again with Emerald Island Resorts on our next visit.

A great place to stay - Simba's Magic
We enjoyed our second time staying on one of these properties, and would absolutely choose to stay here again. From booking to arrival to departure, all is handled seamlessly and in a friendly manner. The houses are in great shape and allow plenty of room for a large family to spread out while sharing common areas.

Awesome vacation home - Tropical Magic
This house is more than comfortable and amazing! Has an amazing theater room, pool, hot tub, and a huge kitchen to gather around! I will be staying here every time we visit Orlando!

Amazing Villa - so close to Disney!!! - Emerald Magic
What a lovely experience we all had at the lovely Emerald Magic villa for our first family vacation to Orlando. We were a party of 3 families - 6 adults and 6 kids. The villa was large enough for everyone to have their own space and the pool / games room was a hit with the kids! The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed (another baking tray would be nice) and having the high washer dryer was excellent. The cleanliness was perfect and we enjoyed the fluffy towels and clean bedding that was left for us. The villa was minutes away from Animal kingdom and very close to shops and restaurants. Sri was fantastic from the moment I booked and answered every question I had so quickly and efficiently. I will not hesitate booking again with Emerald Island Rentals! Thank you for a memorable vacation Sri!

Great family vacation villa - Goofy's Magic
This is our 3rd time staying at Goofy's Magic House. Obviously we enjoy this house it is perfect for the 4 of us! The wide open space we have is always a plus. The pool is always refreshing after visiting Disney or Universal for a day. It is nice to have your own space to cook and relax without having to eat out every meal. I can't say enough great things about this house! We are looking forward to returning in 2018!!!

We thank the Wichmann's family for renting our villa and look forward to assisting them in the future.
Simba's Magic was Magic - Simba's Magic
My family stayed in Simba's Magic from 22nd July until 8th August, we had a wonderful time. We had a few hick ups with the alarm becoming faulty and a couple of other minor issues but we contacted the management team who responded very quickly and efficiently. We would stay here again without any doubts, my grand children loved the games room and the little ones loved the pool. Our dealings with Sri the owner were always very pleasant and efficient. Thank you Sri for a lovely experience in your property, we will be returning in the future.
Mr Frank Byrne (London, Hertfordshire, England)
Aug 22, 2017
We appreciate Frank's family for staying at Simba's Magic. They are a wonderful family and we enjoyed working with them. We regret the inconvenience with the alarm that has gone faulty. It took us a day or two to figure out which one was faulty between all the smoke alarms and security alarm. But once we figured out, our maintenance was able to fix it quickly. We really appreciate these guests for their patience and would love to have them back in the future.
We had a fabulous time! - Nemo's Magic
Sri, Thank you we had a fabulous time! On Wednesday the resort had signs posted everywhere to be alert for bears YIKES! This is the 5 time we have stayed at this resort and have never ran across that before. No worries we never saw one! The House was perfect and the pool crystal clear. It was wonderful!

Great facilities and communication - Timon's Magic
Great facilities and loads of space, really convenient for all the Disney parks. Good communication throughout booking process and during the stay. Staff on site were very polite and helpful. Recommended, think I would upgrade next time to have private pool as think this would have made it perfect.

We had a lovely time at your villas - Disney Magic II
My family would like to thank Mr. Sri for sharing his two beautiful homes for our family vacation at the Emerald Islands Resort. I would say if you ever planning a family vacation in Kissimmee Florida I suggest you contact Mr. Sri. Our family did and already planning for our next vacation at the emerald island resort...

We loved our villa! - Nemo's Magic

Greatest time ever! - Emerald Magic
First I like to really thank Sri for making it possible for us enjoying a great week. He responded back promptly whenever we had a question He worked great to get us in earlier than we anticipated. Great Customer Service. Second, the house was great! I was able to get in the pool once. But everyone else enjoyed themselves. We did get some guests to come and they really enjoyed the game room. Oh My God did they enjoy the game room or what? Third, Coming in to the emerald is so beautiful and we did do Magic Kingdom and got drench, but that's Florida weather. The Rooms were immaculate and are of nice sizes. Everyone was able to have a room and we even had an extra room. I give management and the Home 10 STARS. WE WERE CLOSE TO THE STORES. IT WAS JUST WONDERFUL! The only thing that was bad and not pertaining to management or the home is the pesky flies. Oh my god, they are a problem in Florida. Overall fantastic stay. Now I can go back to Work and let my class know what a wonderful time we had. My husband can go back to work with C.A.P.S Youth officer and let his explorers know what a fantastic time we had. Maybe we will bring a few next time.
Lecia Henry (Chicago, IL)
Aug 08, 2017
We would like to thank these guests for their feedback. We had an issue with too many flies earlier in the week and the issue was common to exterior of the homes. We are spraying around to control them. Hopefully they will be gone pretty quickly with the heat.

Wonderful summer vacation - Emerald Magic
We had a great time in Emerald Magic. Very nice and clean house, very responsive owner. We all had our own room. Everyone love the pool and game room. Mr Sri is very nice and easy to work with. We will definitely go back there, very secure place to stay with children. Thank you Mr Sri.

Perfect Vacation - Stitch's Magic
Our vacation was everything I expected. When we arrived at the gate to check in, the security welcomed us with open arms. Our home was ready for us to enter everything in the description was exactly like it. We will definitely be back again. My kids really enjoyed their vacation home especially the pool. Mr. Sri, thank you for all your help and making sure we were satisfied.

Large and spacious villa - Disney Magic
Well Marketed. Good Location and Very Responsive Owner. It was well worth to have the pool heated.

Top of the Line Villa - Emerald Magic
We rented 2 homes Emerald Magic and Disney Magic as there were 19 of us. The accommodations were outstanding. The children and grandchildren loved the pool, the game rooms and having their own private bathrooms. The kitchens were fully equipped. The beds all slept exceptionally well and there were plenty of linens. I enjoyed walking the resort each day and felt safe the entire time. We would definitely stay here again!

We are glad to know these guests had a great time. We will be glad to have these guests back anytime in the future.
Nemo's Magic review - Nemo's Magic
We loved it. Very nice house, lots of room, nice pool and patio. Hot tub or whirlpool left a bit to be desired, but overall, it was a great stay. Only complaint is that I was told an early check in would probably be no problem, but then it was denied when requested. Same with a late check out - 10AM is awfully early for people with a 3-4PM flight home. Especially with the cleanup required before you leave. Some flexibility in that area would have been nice. But overall, an excellent stay.
Kurt Zwetschke (Portland, OR)
Jun 27, 2017
We are glad to know Kurt's family enjoyed their stay. We are however unsure of any concerns they may have had with the hot tub/spa heat as we did not get any email/phone calls regarding the same during their stay. These guests did request for an early check-in and late check-out. As mentioned in numerous places on the website, booking agreement and welcome documents, the check-in is anytime after 04:00 pm and check-out is by 10:00 am. Since vacation homes book back-to-back in many cases, we do need the time to clean the house for the next arrival. That is the reason we could not give early check-in or late check-out for these guests. Any guest can optionally pay a small fee to get an early check-in and/or late checkout if they choose to have these options guaranteed.
AMAZING VILLA! - Timon's Magic
Let me preface this review with the fact that I am not a Disney/Florida fan. Friends of mine from Ireland were spending 2 weeks at Emerald Island, and asked us to come down for a visit. I am SO happy that I booked directly with Sri--- Timon's Magic was gorgeous, clean, and just a delight! My friends rented a 7 bedroom villa from another agency- and they spent the first week of their holiday fighting with the rental agent to have the place cleaned- it was filthy! When they saw Timon's Magic, they were just amazed at the difference. Sri was a delight to work with, from the moment I inquired about the property, until we left. I had 2 extremely minor issues that I just wanted to bring to Sri's attention, and within a couple hours of emailing him, maintenance was there to inspect my concern. We only used the master suite, and the bed was so comfortable! Everything about the resort was wonderful. Very secure. My boyfriend and I did not go to the parks, but this location is excellent for Disney. Loved both pools, there is one less than a 1 minute walk from this villa, and the main clubhouse is a 5 minute walk, 2 minute drive. On the off chance that I ever go back to Orlando, I will definitely book again with Sri. Thank you!!!!

Amazing! - Timon's Magic
My friends and I try to do an annual trip and this year we decided Disney. Because its six of us a house was a better choice rather than a hotel. Sri is so great and was willing to work with us with our arrival time! The house was amazing, had everything we needed and was close to all the parks. We are so grateful to have found this house and we will definitely be coming back to stay in one of his rental for sure! Thank you!

Family vacation home - Disney Magic
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Disney magic. Sri was so helpful during the booking process and prompt to respond. This house was a good size for our party of 10 adults and 6 children. The house was clean and roomy. The children and teens enjoyed having the game room and pool. The game room is a bit warmer than the rest of the house (garage) but not uncomfortable. Nicely decorated and a good place to hang out. There are wall fans and a system to assist with temperature regulation (in the game-room). There were plenty of utensils for kitchen use. In three of the rooms the TVs were not working. I contacted Sri to let him know, he was very prompt to respond. The next day someone came to install a new TV in the kids bunk bed room (much appreciated). But the others were not replaced during our stay. Great location with lots of shopping and things to do nearby and Disney was not far at all. Maybe 4 miles. We greatly enjoyed it and will book again.
Miller Family (Greenville, SC)
Jun 19, 2017
We really appreciate this family's patience while we replaced the TVs that went dead, perhaps due to a surge. We were trying to upgrade the TVs to larger than what we had and could not get them any sooner. The new TVs for the other two rooms arrived on the day these guests were leaving and are now in place.
Nice villa near Disney - Nemo's Magic
Nemo's Magic was very nice and comfortable. Nice location. Clean. Thank you Sri for your help when we first arrived.

We will rent this house again - Disney Magic II
We enjoyed our visit and will rent this house again. Our grand children loved the pool and game room. The house was clean and in excellent condition. We liked that it was in a safe, secure, gated community.

Very close to Disney, kids had a blast - Tigger's Magic
This home provided a great place for our family stay in Orlando. Our kids loved the pool. This is a nice neighborhood and probably one of the closest to Disney. The neighborhood is gated and beautiful. Sri was very responsive to any questions that we had. For the price, I think this house is hard to beat. Very good value! Thank you Sri for everything. We would come back.

Emerald Magic Review - Emerald Magic
Took the kids and grandkids to DisneyWorld and we couldn't have been happier with the rental. It is close to the parks so we were able to leave midday and relax and eat to save a few bucks. The grandkids enjoyed the pool and game room. The rooms were very nice. I would stay here again if we were to go to Disney again. Well worth the money compared to what it would have cost us for rooms at Disney for 11 people.
Gregg Mason (Lees Summit, MO)
Jun 04, 2017
We are pleased to be part of Mason family's vacation. We look forward to seeing them again on a future Disney area vacation in one of our rentals.
The Great Family Escape! - Stitch's Magic
My family of four, my sister's family of four and my parents met up to spend Memorial day weekend at this house. The stay was wonderful. We did encounter a few problems when we first arrived, but the owner quickly made sure that everything was taken care of and our needs were met. I would definitely stay here again. The home was close to all Disney attractions and the kids had fun enjoying the enclosed pool.
Lisa Bedford (Fitzgerald, GA)

We really appreciate Lisa and family's stay at Stitch's Magic. They were very much understanding and gave us the opportunity to resolve the few concerns they expressed.
Nice Disney area vacation home - Minnie's Magic
The condo was very nice. Very close to Disney. Was nice to have room to move around and not be stuck in a small hotel room. Would stay there again.

Lovely house and location - Pumbaa's Magic
My family stayed a week at Pumbaa's Magic. We loved the home and location. The house could have been prepped a bit better but other than that, we liked the house!
Kelly Fling (Bel Air, MD)
May 10, 2017
We would like to thank Kelly for the feedback and the opportunity to follow-up with her over the phone about her feedback. Rest assured, we alerted our cleaning crew to do a better job. We also encourage all our guests to let us know while in the rental if they have any issues so that we could address any concerns promptly.
Good experience, Sri was awesome to work with - Pumbaa's Magic
The home was what we expected. The experience overall was good and we would stay here again. Sri was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. We had a glitch with the smoke alarm but besides that I'm not displeased in any way with Sri or the services offered and I would gladly book again next spring when we return the FL.
Tim G (Strongsville, OH)
May 02, 2017
Tim's stay and feedback are very well appreciated. We forwarded the smoke alarm issue to our management company for resolution.
A great Villa for a visit to Disney - Emerald Magic
Emerald Magic is an excellent Villa in a great location -- arguably the best possible location for visiting Disney. The Villa has 6 bedrooms with four King Beds.The beds were very comfortable resulting in a very good night's sleep every night. The Villa is very well furnished with quality furnishings and equipment. The Kitchen is very well equipped with very good breakfast bar seating and table seating.The Pool and Jaccuzzi/Spa are excellent and the Covered Lanai has lots of furniture and shade. We paid the extra for the pool heating which was well worth it -- with the pool heated to 85 Degrees F. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 Week holiday at this Villa.

Best vacation ever! - Simba's Magic
My family spent spring break at Disney magic we had a fabulous time, Sri was most pleasant in the entire booking process, he made it simple and worked with our needs as we were traveling from 3 states for our gathering. The house was just what we needed and all accommodations worked well for our needs fro the week. We will refer and contact Sri when we do our next Disney trip!!

Our stay at Lilo's Magic - Lilo's Magic
We were very pleased with the rental property. It was big enough to accommodate our family of 10 comfortably. We had to request extra washcloths and help with the pool heater and Sri was quick to respond. Our only real problem was that we had a 2 year old who would open the front door and run out. The door would not lock from the inside. We propped a chair under the handle to keep her in. We would love to rent this property again.
Melissa Chappell (McDonough, AL)
Apr 11, 2017
We thank these guests for their stay and for the feedback. The front door locks automatically when closed to prevent guests from forgetting to lock on the way out to parks. We would have added a dead-bolt if these guests were to call us during their stay to express their concerns. We do appreciate the feedback.
Perfect house for our family vacation - Nemo's Magic
Sri, we really enjoyed our holidays very much. The house was perfect for us, very comfortable and nice, and we really took care of it. Thank you very much for sharing your villa with us!

Beautiful home - beautiful area! - Pumbaa's Magic
An absolute beautiful and well maintained home just outside of the Disney parks and resorts. There were five of us staying and invited a friend of my daughters who lives in West Palm Beach to come up and join us for an evening. The house easily accommodated us! Lot's of local restaurants and even a grocery store all within a mile or so of the resort. Booking was easy and the whole process and experience was perfect. Thank you Sri, we will be back!

Magic at Timon's - Timon's Magic
We had a great time at Timon's Magic villa. This 3-bedroom unit had plenty of space for our family of four in a very quiet gated community. The location is perfect to tour the Orlando area and we really enjoyed the pool with associated Tiki bar and other amenities including the basketball courts and beach volleyball. The grounds are well kept and lush. The unit itself was clean and well-equipped for a comfortable stay. We will definitely be back!

Will absolutely consider staying in the future! - Disney Magic
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay! With such a large group it is often hard to find places to accommodate! I appreciate your cooperation and for helping us find an alternative to our situation! The home was beautiful and all 9 children enjoyed the pool almost all day everyday even despite the cold! Thank you again and we will absolutely consider staying in the future!

Number of vehicles allowed to be parked per villa is 6 we no guest has exceeded in the past as most if not all guests come in cars/vans. These guests came mostly on motor bikes and exceeded the 6 vehicle limit. We discussed these guests driving bikes before they reserved but we did not discuss the possibility that they will be coming on more than 6 bikes. We were fortunate that we were able to show alternate arrangements to this unique situation.
I loved everything - Lilo's Magic
I will definitely return to this villa everything was great, clean, nice and Sri was very nice and professional I really enjoyed my stay thanks for helping make are trip memorable

Stayed here for 15th Birthday Celebration - Simba's Magic
If you are looking for a safe, private, and convenient place you found it! This villa is perfect for a big group. We were a family of 9 and we couldn't be happier. We had a blast! One of my nieces wanted to celebrate her 15th birthday (Quinceanera) at Disney and being such a large group with children of all ages I was kind of worried, but as soon as we got there all the worries were gone. Not to mention, Mr. Sri (Owner) was very helpful, organized, and made sure we were well informed about the house and the area. He answered all our questions and allowed us to have a great time together. Thank you Mr. Sri for being so helpful through our journey. Regarding the distance to the park parking lot (not where the sign Welcome to Disney is) the distance is between 12-15 minutes to all parks (again parking lot) so it is actually not bad at all, plus it is an easy drive. We didn't have time to enjoy the pool as we wanted; however, you have the choice available if you want. Overall, this was an excellent experience for all of us and our girl will always remember the wonderful time we had in this villa and in the parks of course. Would we recommend this place for you to stay? Definitely!

Great rental - Tropical Magic
My family has rented homes at Emerald Island Resort for the past 3 years. This is by far the best villa. It was very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. There were a few minor issues that were quickly taken care of. The privacy afforded by the vegetation outside of the pool was very nice. Located close to Disney and convenient to everything. I would definitely rent this home again.

Sri's rental house for my stay was 10/10. My group was 8 adults and a toddler for 2 nights and it was absolutely amazing. The house was wide and spacious with many rooms and bathrooms. The location was in a great gated community less than 15 minutes away from Disney attractions. Registering for car passes to enter the community was smooth and simple.Beds and bathrooms were properly filled with basic supplies. This space is good for big groups with simple needs. Lots of extra appliances and such to use although we did not use them. Very very clean. Check in and check out procedure was generally very easy and recommended for first time Airbnb guests :) I will return again as I always travel in big groups. Fair price. Sri was very quick to respond and communication with him was easy. Awesome host!

My family truly enjoyed our stay! Sri made the booking process easy and was a joy to work with and I have no complaints. The pictures online are true representation of the rooms. The location is great for any needs. Thank you for a great experience and we will definitely return.

Great Family Vacation! - Tigger's Magic
Owner was pleasant and easy to work with from booking until vacation. House was pleasant, clean and comfortable...Only recommendations are to bring beach towels as only 2 were in the house for use with pool...We will definitely be back!

Thanks to Kevin for the comments and lovely feedback. We will add a few more pool towels to the supply at this villa.
Great place to stay! - Timon's Magic
Timons was a great place to stay, we ran into a couple issues the first couple days (warm water running out, flat pillows, nothing extreme) so I contacted Sri, he was fantastic, answered right away and the next morning our problems were fixed, we came back to the house with brand new pillows and plenty of hot water! The house does seem to be getting worn ( which does happen with rentals) and mattresses should be updated but overall our stay was great! Will most likely rent again! Thank you Sri!

Michele is right that we needed new mattresses in the kids room. Thanks to her feedback we now replaced the mattresses in that room.
Fantastic Rental! - Tigger's Magic
We had a fantastic time in our rental this past week. The rooms and amenities were great. The location was really fantastic, very close to many restaurants, shopping, and all Disney parks. We loved the gated community and the community pool and hot tub. The pool at our house was great (once the weather warmed up) and the house layout couldn't have been better for our two families. 4 adults and 4 kids under the age of 10 fit very comfortably in this home. I'd highly recommend it and would look to rent it again if we return to the area. Can't beat the price for a fantastic location and comfortable home.

Awesome villa - Tigger's Magic
From the time we arrived to the day we left were really impressed. The house was everything that was shown on the pictures and more! Loved our stay...will defiantly recommend Emerald Island/Sri to all our friends and family. After a long day we/grandkids really enjoyed the comfort of our own pool. Thank you again for making our vacation more wonderful.!! Ochodnicky-family

Disney family vacation - Simba's Magic
The home was everything we hoped it would be. We had four generations spending a week there for Christmas. Six adults and three children. The home had a perfect layout and was very close to Disney. Every morning and every night we all enjoyed the pool. The check-in and checkout process was very easy. Sri was great to work with and answered all of my questions quickly. I would definitely recommend renting from him

Our Vacation - Disney Magic II
My family and I had an awesome time. The home was very comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. Even the teenagers liked it. Game room was a big hit and if course the pool and spa. It was great to come back from one of the parks and just relax!

Words cannot describe the beauty of this place! - Simba's Magic
Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. The gated community was amazing, the rental (Simba Magic ) was beautiful, spacious and relaxing, we we're close to the theme Parks, shopping centers and WALMART. The owner was always available whenever questions arise. I would definitely recommend and visit again.

Enjoyed our stay - Simba's Magic
The house was beautiful and in a very nice location. I was happy that it was close to so much and only a 20 minute drive to Universal and Sea World. Owner was easy to work with when we had trouble and got with us right away. Looking forward to coming back in a couple of years and we will definitely book with Emerald Island Rentals again. Thank you.

A perfect vacation home - Tropical Magic
Tropical Magic was perfect for our Disney vacation. We traveled with 6 kids, ages ranging from 2-12. All the kids were comfortable in the house, had a blast in the heated pool/spa and game room. The house was very comfortable for the 6 adults too - the bedrooms were spacious and en suite bath's were perfect. The kitchen did not lack, which was great since we cooked dinner almost nightly. The location from the parks was ideal - travel time to and from the park was similar to staying inside the park without the hassle of shuttles and buses. Sri was amazing to book with, responsive and helpful.

Tigers Magic was a very nice comfortable home - Tigger's Magic
Tigers magic was a very nice comfortable home there were a little bit of fixing that could be done for future guests like the sliding doors to the master bathroom kept coming off the wheels and needed some wd40. Also there was no light inside our pool if we wanted to swim at night. But overall it was pleasant and we will definitely stay in this villa.
Naisha (Capemay, NJ)
Nov 12, 2016
The guest did not inform us during their stay about the sliding door which has now been resolved. The light in the pool is working all along and at this time we can only assume, the guest did not realize the correct switch. As we always suggest to all our guests, we will be happy to resolve any issues and answer questions while you are staying.
Exceeded our expectations - Simba's Magic
Excellent! We have stayed at the Emerald Island Resort in the past and it always exceeds our expectation. Sri was amazing to work with, he always responded promptly, and all our needs were met. We really enjoyed the house we stayed at and enjoyed the grounds as well. I would recommend to anyone who is looking to stay near Disney, Epcot, Universal Studios to consider this house rental. MUCH BETTER THEN RENTING A HOTEL ROOM.

We loved the villa, the beds were really comfortable and the facilities were brilliant.

Thank you Sri for all we enjoyed. Kindest regards, the Laidler Family.

A clean and comfortable villa for our vacation - Stitch's Magic

The house was perfect. - Tropical Magic
The house was very well maintained. It had everything we needed and more. The pool was very refreshing after a long, hot day at Disney World. The beds were very comfortable and the house had everything to cook, clean, and be comfortable. The listing was 100% accurate. The neighborhood was amazing and less than 15 minutes from being parked in the Disney parking lot! Great value for everything you get.

We found Timon's Magic clean and well appointed. It met all our needs. The location is perfect. We felt safe with the level of security.

Glad to recommend this home to all our friends and acquaintances - Nemo's Magic
We arrived Sunday morning for a week long family vacation, to be honest a long overdue and much needed one after a couple of rough years as a family. We entered the resort and were immediately astounded with the beauty of the gated community. The staff at the clubhouse was friendly and accommodated our every need for the entire time of our stay (the Pina coladas at the Tiki Bar were also a plus!). Our arrival to the home was an even greater pleasure. Once we pulled into the driveway then walked inside we knew we picked the right vacation home. The decor was immaculate, the rooms were spacious and super clean, the 3 bathrooms never left anyone waiting for their turn like it would have been at a hotel. We spent every day in the pool and being able to make our meals at home which saved us a lot of money. The location was perfect and just far away enough from the parks that you felt relaxed and not overwhelmed with crowds and traffic. We will be staying here again as soon as possible. We loved every moment of our stay!

What a lovely villa you have! - Emerald Magic
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say what a lovely villa you have. You have a very comfortable and well looked after home and it's obvious that both you and your management company take great care to maintain this property to a very high standard and absolutely everything we needed was available. It was a delight to stay here and it is definitely somewhere we would consider staying again for a large group and we will be sharing the knowledge (and the pictures) of how lovely it is with all our friends and colleagues.

We arrived at Emerald Island Resorts which was very easy to find and was extreme surprised with the property. When seeing the pictures you do not really grasp the beauty of it all. We stayed in Timon's Magic and it was absolutely amazing. We loved every second that we stayed there. It is a very welcoming home and made us feel like we were home. I am already planning my vacation for next year and to stay at the same location. Thank you so much Sri.

Just as in pictures - Mickey's Magic
The photos of the house online are exactly how the house is pictured. Aside from food of course, cleaning products, and toiletries, toilet tissue, paper towels, etc, All supplies are there at your convenience. The community is absolutely beautiful and perfect if you're wanting to go for a walk or jog. A convenience is that they do take out trash for you, but only one bag that doesn't exit the limit of the garbage bin provided. I absolutely enjoyed my experience there and look forward to planning my stay here again.

We had a lovely, happy time and the villa was fantastic. - Tigger's Magic
I stayed at this villa for three weeks during July and August 2016 with my husband, my son his wife and two boys aged 12 and 15. The contact I had with Sri while organizing our holiday was all positive. He replied to all my queries immediately in a professional, helpful, friendly manor. Payment was simple and directions to the villa were easy to follow. On arrival we were not disappointed. Emerald Island is a gated community with good security. The villa was spacious with lots of room for the six of us, comfortable and clean and provide everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable. There were lots of fluffy white towels and a change of sheets for each bed. The boys enjoyed the table tennis and the pool area which is south facing so gets the sun all day. It was lovely, so we made good use of it every day and the gas BBQ provided us with some lovely alfresco meals after long days in the parks. Tigger's Magic is situated perfectly, it only took us 15 mins to get to any of the Disney parks and about 30 mins to Universal. There are lots of good restaurants just mins away on the 192 as well as a supermarket to buy the steaks for that BBQ! A couple of days after we returned home I had an e-mail from Sri thanking us for our custom which I thought was lovely. As a family we were very happy and comfortable staying at Tigger's Magic and would not hesitate to book this villa again through Sri. Thank you Sri for all your help to make our dream holiday really special.

Very much pleased with the villa - Timon's Magic
This was our first stay at this property, and we were very pleased with the accommodations. The home was clean, roomy and the kids really enjoyed having space of their own. The location was ideal with shops close for what we needed. Now that we have experienced this place, we can never go back to hotels for a family of 5 plus. We did not get a chance to enjoy the amenities on the resort, but plan to return. Also Kudos to Mr. Gogineni for making the process easy and delightful.

All of the guests enjoyed the stay in the house. It was comfortable and roomy. All appliances worked sufficiently and the air conditioning kept us comfy. The Wi-Fi was great and the TV 's all worked well. The game room entertained the kids and adults. The pool was nice as well. The only problem was the alarm that went off far too often. The outside button was not operable and caused some tension in the home.

Our second stay here - Disney Magic
This is the second time we have stayed at this property in two years. We would go no where else as it holds our entire family comfortably and is minutes from the parks. The community is gated so we felt very safe. The decor is nice and the outside patio area is wonderful. The owner is always a phone call away and is very accommodating. I would recommend this property to anyone with a big family because it is so nice and much more affordable than 3-4 hotel rooms charged in a daily basis. We will be back again

Well maintained home - Disney Magic
Overall we enjoyed our stay, and the home was fairly well maintained. We did have to call the property manager with a couple of items that we didn't want to end up being charged with at the end of our stay.. the home was certainly large enough for all of us and the kids really enjoyed the pool. We had some issues at the gate with guests told they weren't on the list, but were able to get that straightened out quickly. Much appreciated it being a gated community also. All in all it was a great way for us all to be together.

I can't say enough good things about our stay. - Timon's Magic
I can't say enough good things about our stay. I NEVER write reviews, good bad or indifferent. So the fact that 8 months after we stayed in Timon's Magic, I'm taking the time to write a review is a testament to how outstanding the experience was. I meant to do this months ago but forgot. As a mother traveling alone with young children ages 7 and 10, security was a top priority. The resort takes security extremely seriously. NOBODY gets in (or out) of the resort unless authorized to do so, 24/7. And each guest is only permitted access to their designated residential area. The day my mother came to visit, she had to present to the main gate, provide identification and sign in before she was permitted to drive to the gated entrance that corresponded with the development where our villa was located. Once at that gate, security still had to open the gate remotely from the office. The villa itself was in excellent condition (crisp clean linens, comfortable mattresses, immaculate bathrooms, well appointed kitchen, plush sofas in living room) and it had every amenity one could ask for in a rental property, including sliding glass doors that open onto a large private yard with lounge chairs and a barbecue grill. But the true bonus and the number one reason I would return in a heartbeat, was the service provided by Sri, the property manager. From the initial inquiries I made on-line when considering booking this villa, throughout our stay, and to post-departure follow up, Sri was professional, attentive, courteous, accommodating and accessible....virtually 24/7. I never waited longer than 15 minutes for a response to an inquiry (which is impressive when communicating an individual who is off-site). And once I emailed at 10:30pm (because I couldn't figure out the wifi, not because there was any sort of "problem"). Sri was a genuine pleasure to deal with. His attentiveness made the task of taking 2 small children to multiple theme parks over 4 days, a much less exhausting experience. When traveling with small children, it doesn't matter how nice the accommodations are (Timon's Magic is WONDERFUL). If the customer service is sub-par, that's enough to sour the entire experience. I have visited the Disney/Universal theme parks dozens of times over the past 10 years and I've stayed in accommodations at every price point, from budget motels to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Thanks to Sri, I would return to Timon's Magic without hesitation.

First, we would like thank Mrs Su-Yen for taking the time to post a review for us. She stayed in our Timon's Magic villa back in Sep 2015 and was quite pleased with her stay and suggested that she would be happy to leave a review on our site. The fact that she followed-through her word after so many months (without any further reminders) says it all as to how much she enjoyed her stay! We are pleased to welcome Sue-Yen to come back and stay with us anytime in the future as she was a wonderful guest to work with.
Wonderful stay! - Stitch's Magic

Clean and well managed rental - Timon's Magic
My wife and I enjoyed staying at the Timon's Magic villa for a mini-vacation. The unit was very clean and well maintained at arrival. We did have a slight issue with the electronic keypad code but Sri contacted a property management staff who arrived immediately and assisted us entering the villa. The staff that came was extremely friendly and helpful. All equipment and household appliances were very clean and in excellent operating condition in the villa. I highly recommend Emerald Resort for anyone searching for a clean and quiet atmosphere to enjoy their stay in the area. As a matter of fact, this is the 4th time staying at this resort.

Excellent place, excellent service. - Tropical Magic
Excellent place, excellent service. Had to call Sri upon arrival because I couldn't get the door code to work. It was 10:00PM, he answered the phone, and I was in the house within a minute. We didn't know quite what to expect when renting a villa versus staying on the Disney property, but Tropical Magic blew us away. We will be utilizing Emerald Island for all future Disney vacations. It took about 15 minutes to get to all of the Disney parks, and we got SO much more for the money this way. The private pool was the perfect way to wind down after a long day in the Orlando sun. Sri is the consummate professional and delivered on everything that he promised. I can't speak for the other homes under his management, but I would recommend Tropical Magic to anyone.

Our family really enjoyed our time in this villa - Tropical Magic
The resort has a security station with a very attractive entrance. Not only did I feel safe, the home was very clean and comfortable. Our family really enjoyed our time here and are planning another trip soon. We will definitely contact Sri again for our next vacation.

This is a great place! - Nemo's Magic
This is a great place! We brought family member together to spend an enjoyable Passover. Everything is provided from bicycles to swim toys. The large tub in the master bedroom was a nice suprise. The house is ranch style and we found that a plus. Why run up and down steps all day and night! The rental agent Sri was very patient, polite, and responed to my emails almost instantly. Go for it!

Exactly as described in the pictures - Mickey's Magic
Sri's house is exactly the same as the picture, spacious kitchen and living room area. The house is clean, spacious master bedroom with a private bathroom; There are enough clean towers and kitchen supplies. Sri was very quickly in responding my message and so did the property manager. The security in the villa are super responsive, which makes the area super safe. We also love the location, close to all the parks, restaurants, and Publix is about 5 minutes driving.

Fantastic Villa in a handy location - Disney Magic II
We had a great stay, a couple of minor problems were fixed very quickly. The pool was marvellous, my grandchildren spent hours in it. The house is comfortably and comprehensively furnished. The master bedroom is on the ground floor, a boon for those with mobility difficulties. The estate it is situated on is well kept and secure, ideally situated for all major theme parks. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the close vicinity though a car is pretty important. Overall the villa represented excellent value for the 11 people in my party, it was considerably lower in price than equivalent properties from other agency. The manager (and owner) Sree, was helpful and accommodating, we will be booking again in a few years when my youngest grand daughter is a little older.

Great stay! Would come back in a heartbeat! - Simba's Magic
Sri, the owner contacted me as soon as I booked it and answered all the questions I had. He was prompt with sending accurate details about the house for the weekend. The house was very clean and well equipped for a relaxing weekend for me and 13 other guests. The resort was great overall both the pool at the house and the clubhouse were fantastic. Within minutes to Disney! The house was great and was able to accommodate everyone. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was very clean! Great house for all ages. We will definitely stay again when we are in the Orlando area! There was nothing to complain about!

Perfect vacation rental - Nemo's Magic
We stayed at "Nemo's Magic" for ten days in February and it was a pleasure. The home is exactly as described and depicted on the site's photographs; Sri made the facilities, options, and rules crystal clear; he quickly responded to our every request; the house's proximity to Disney made it ideal; Emerald Island is a lovely, well kept resort; I can't say enough good things about the whole experience. Will certainly recommend Sri, this community and house to others.

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.
