Great home for a family reunion [Disney Magic]
Disney Magic was the most perfect house for our family reunion. The heated pool and game room were big hits with all ages. Highly recommend.

Great homes very close to Disney! [Mickey's Magic]
Just got back from a great stay in Mickeys Magic (3 br condo) and had a wonderful stay! We stayed in one if the 7 br homes a few years ago which was also nice. Great homes very close to Disney! So much better then the room w 2 beds in it in Disney that would have cost us the same as the 3 br condo!!! So nice to be able to put the kids down for a nap or bed and be able to walk about the rest of the condo without worrying about waking them! Play pen and 2 strollers provided at condo were very helpful!

Thanksgiving week at Disney Magic home was truly a wonderful experience. [Disney Magic]
We stayed at the 7 bedroom Disney Magic home Thanksgiving week and it was truly a wonderful experience. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were a wonderful addition at the end of busy days.Sri had provided excellent directions from the airport as well as to the parks and restaurants and grocery stores in the area. He was ALWAYS available to answer any questions. I would definitely stay at one of his homes if I am ever in orlando again.

Home in excellent condition and carefully furnished and maintained [Emerald Magic]
Children in our group (ages 3 to 6) preferred staying in the house to play in game room and swim in the pool instead of going out to parks... Owner very solicitous and always available with a quick and appropriate response to all questions and concerns. Strongly recommend renting this home. Description of property very accurate.

The home was extremely clean and it was easy to go to Disney parks [Emerald Magic]
Our family stayed in the Emerald Magic Villa in early October 2012. There was 9 of us total and the home had more then enough room for all of us to have privacy while still allowing us to hang out as a family. We ran into some unforeseen issues in the first day or two but even on the weekend we were able to contact Sri and the issues were resolved. The home was extremely clean and it was so quick and easy to get to all the parks! I will definitely keep Sri in mind for our next trip. If you have a large family and don't want to stay at the parks you WANT to stay here!.

A great vacation home for a large family vacation. [Disney Magic]
We stayed in the Disney Magic 7 bedroom home in September 2012. It was great for our large family vacation with 11 people! It was exactly like you see in the pictures and great for the kids. The pool and game room were very nice and kept the kids entertained while the adults got things ready each morning to go to the Disney parks. There is so much to do here at Emerald Island Resort that even if you were not going to any of the parks, these homes would provide a relaxing and wonderful vacation. Being a gated community, there is excellent security and made me feel very comfortable. All of the staff at the gate and clubhouse were polite and helpful. The resort is also very close to a multitude of restaurants, shopping and entertainment, including discounted souvenir shops. The benefits of staying here make this a real value for larger groups/families compared to the cost of staying on even Disney's value properties. Would definitely consider renting here again!

There was nothing more we could have asked for in this villa. [Disney Magic]
My family and I truly enjoyed Disney Magic home. To be honest, I would have much rather spent all my time at the house than at the parks. It was just as shown on the website...there was nothing more we could have asked for. What a wonderfully decorated and comfy home. Thanks to Sri for sharing. If I am ever inclined to visit Florida again, I will definitely not hesitate to contact Sri.

Had a great time at Emerald Island Resort [Pluto's Magic]
Had a great time at Emerald Island Resort - we (family of 9) spent 8 days in May - we rented Pluto's Magic. If you are going to be spending time at any of the Disney parks, this is a fantastic option - the parks are just minutes away (of course, you still need to drive). The rates are good, and the place is very nice - the home we rented had a swimming pool, so the kids had a blast on days we chose not to step out - and we didnt even need heating in May. There are lots of restaurants within 2 mile radius, but we also put the kitchen to full use, cooking most of the days. The tips, directions and instructions by Sri were also quite helpful! Thanks! Im sure we'll be back to Emerald Island Resort on our next trip to Orlando.

Pleasure to work with an owner who cares! [Mickey's Magic]
We stayed here in July. Nice condo. Very nice owner Sri. He was so helpful and on top of everything. It was a pleasure staying somewhere where the owner actually cares and knows what's going on with his property. When we come back to Florida this is the only place we will stay! Thanks Sri.

Had a great time, just like last year! [Mickey's Magic]
Sorry Sri to have taken so long in leaving this comment, life just gets in the way. Anyway, we stayed, again this year also at Sri\'s place after last September 2011. It was a very welcome return, just like going home. The house is fantastic, the facilities beyond compare, and the lake out back is beautiful. It really is just minutes from good places to eat, and from the Disney roads. The community pool is always welcome after a busy day, or even to start the day. A great place to stay, and be assured Sri we WILL be back.

Wow!!! An amazing experience. [Mickey's Magic]
Wow!!! An amazing experience. My children really had an amazing time at the pool everday. The beds are amazing, mind you I usually can't sleep if it's at my own bed, but on the first night I was K.O. With no problem. Sri you are the best. Thanks!!!!

28 thumbs up!! [Disney Magic]
We stayed at the Disney Magic villa for a week to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. There were 14 of us; ages ranged from 11 to 75. The accommodations were great, and we felt entirely comfortable there. We could only find 12 full-sized forks, but that just became a running gag for the entire week. ;-) Sri always responded quickly if we had a question, and was a gracious host. We have no trouble recommending these accommodations! 28 thumbs up!!

Graeme, Thanks for the nice comments; you were very pleasant to deal with as well. We hope to see you on your next trip to Disney area. We will add some more forks to our kitchen. No worries :-) Thanks for the feedback and we welcome that all the time.
The place was OUTSTANDING!!! [Tropical Magic]
We had an outstanding stay last week at two houses on Sunrise Key and hope to return someday. The place was OUTSTANDING!!! We had a group of young people with us and they also had a great memorable time. One comment that they made me promise I would pass along and that several of them felt strongly about was the fact that even though the garbage pickup came twice a week, there was no way to RECYCLE basic plastics, aluminum, glass and paper. It really bothered them to be throwing all that in regular trash. I'm passing along their concern. Thanks for listening! We will visit again. Wayne Loving.

Dear Ruth and Wayne, Thank you for the nice comments about the Tropical Magic villa you rented from us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the villa and we look forward to having you back next year. Regarding the lack of provision to recycle, we feel the same way as you do. However, it is not a limitation on our part but the Waste Collection agency itself. Unfortunately we can't even pick a different agency for Waste Collection.
Loved the themed kids bedroom. [Mickey's Magic]
We had a great week staying in Mickey's Magic. The accomodation was incredibly reasonable and my son really loved his Mickey themed bedroom.

We had wonderful time in in Florida and at Emerald Island in particular. [Mickey's Magic]
We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had in Florida and at Emerald Island in particular. Our kids loved the pool and the townhouse, the grounds were clean and well groomed. The townhouse was nicely appointed. The proximity to Disney was perfect, we were there in under 10 minutes. We will definitely refer you to our friends.

Beautiful villa, close to Disney World parks [Florida Magic]

Very comfortable home [Tropical Magic]
Dear Sri, thank you for the use of your very comfortable home. So glad that the entrance to the pool was on an alarm as we had 3 small grandchildren with us. We were disappointed that the welcome pack was not there as we were all exhausted after a long trip. There was 9 of us in the family. The house was perfect for us. We will recommend your home to our friends.

Enjoyed staying at your beautiful villa [Disney Magic]
Sri, Just wanted to let you know that we all enjoyed staying at the villa! The house is beautiful and worked out perfectly for us. The pool was wonderful and we did enjoy it as the average temp all week was in the 90 degree range. I will be certain to recommend your properties to all of my friends and colleagues.

Our family had a wonderful time at your Mickey's Magic villa. [Mickey's Magic]
There were 7 of us and it was completely comfortable. It was nice to save some money by being able to cook dinners in a fully equiped kitchen. We really appreciate the welcome pack of groceries. We also loved being able to wash our clothes so we didn\'t have to bring dirty ones back home and spend the next 2 days washing them all after vacation. The villa was perfectly located near resturants, grocery stores, pharmacies, and Disney World!! Our children also loved the pool and hot tub at the clubhouse. We cannot wait to come back next year!

We are coming back to this Vacation home [Emerald Magic]
Sri, We want to thank you for providing a beautiful home and facility for an awesome vacation with our children and grandchildren. It was a fabulous opportunity for us to reconnect with the family and spend quality time together. The management company was graciously accomodating to our every need which was much appreciated. Everything was in order for a relaxing stay. We are looking forward to making this an annual event.

Everything was great at the villa [Pluto's Magic]
Sri, Thank you for renting your house to us last week. Everything was great at the Pluto's Magic villa. The grand kids really enjoyed the use of the pool after long days at the park. Needless to say, the grand parents got exhausted with all the fun and activities. We will be looking to do the same trip two years from now in October and will contact you for availability.
