Very nice, the furniture is a little old but everything is functional.

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed for 10 days at this vacation home. The visit was pleasant, the house was clean. The owner responds very quickly to any questions or concerns that you have which is really helpful. The home was nice, the furniture is a little old but very functional, the pictures are accurate. The only thing that was a little disturbing was that the king size bed in the master bedroom creaks every time you move ( perhaps it needs to be adjusted or maybe it's just because of age). The house is not for someone looking for modern, updated furniture and decor.

For those with children, there are 2 strollers, high chair, pack and play and one bed rail. The house is on the sunny side of the street so the house it bright and the pool has sun most of the day. The management company was also very professional and responded to any of our questions immediately.

Has it right in nearly all of the important places: Layout, location, owner

  • 5 of 5

Owner: Very prompt in communication. Very reasonable to work with. A bit slow returning the security deposit, but once asked about it, quickly resolved the issue. 5/5

Location: In the sweet spot for us. We rent houses at Disney 6-8 times a year and this is in the prime triangle that we look for (192 x 429 x I4). A few minutes from Target and Publix. A few minutes from several good restaurants and fast food places. A few miles from World Drive. 5/5

Layout: This home is a 4/3. The master and front bed room both have their on bathrooms with a hallway "community" bathroom. The layout was perfect for us. The master bedroom was large enough to move two of the twin mattresses from the other bedrooms to the floor. We have small kids that are too big for a folding crib but not old enough to sleep well in a strange house in a separate room comfortably. The front bedroom also had room to fit one twin mattress as well. 5/5

Odds and ends: All typical home appliances. Some table games in the garage as you commonly find. This is actually a negative for us. We prefer to be able to drive into the garage, but for those will older kids, this can help keep them entertained as we have experienced with our extended family on different trips. There might be normal china/dinning ware, but I can't say for certain. We have young kids and the house had plastic plates, bowls, cups which is what we used instead. The plastic set was made in the USA so extra points for that. The house also had one bed railing which most houses don't. I normally bring 3 with me. Stroller and other standard child stuff also included. One downside was that normally rental homes leave one dishwasher packet for the user. This home did not so we had to purchase our own. 5/5

Security: alarm on the door going to the pool. Also on the windows, but I didn't test any of them to see how/if they worked. Front door has only key code entry. This is a major flaw in many homes. I prefer to stay in homes that have a separate padlock or bar that can be locked when inside the home that someone else outside can't unlock. I suppose this isn't an issue if they change the code between each stay, but I suspect that isn't the case. This is the case in about half of the homes we stay in so I will give it 2.5/5.

Decor: a bit lacking. Really small single pictures on large walls. A bit dated. But we don't care much. Just don't expect lavish decorations like you can find in a few other rentals. Good enough. 3/5

Emerald Island June Rental

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Nice floor plan. Pool was very clean and usable. As an all adult party, the installed barrier between the pool and the patio was inconvenient. As mentioned in prevvious reviews, the beds and beding could use an upgrade. The pantry in the kitche serves as the owners private locked space, so there is very little storage for any purchased food. We had to purchase more sundries than we normally do when we stay in these properties. The house was extremely clean and well kept. A problem with the WiFi was quickly resolved. WiFi worked great after that. Full cable and HBO on all TVs which was nice. We would stay again based on location, cleanliness and overall value.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We decided to make a last minute trip that would feel like a "staycation". This home was perfect for the kids to enjoy the pool and just relax. We booked it fast and with no problems, and the owner responded promptly to all our inquiries. The house was immaculate.

We have stayed in Emerald Island four years in a row and this house was pretty standard compared to the others. Our family of four found the house was more than what we needed, it was clean, comfortable (except maybe tthe beds), and spacious. We didn't use any of the games in the games room and spent the majority of our time in the pool area (so I cannot attest to the descriptions below), and we loved it. Emerald Island is in a great location, close to restaurants, shopping and the parks. We were quite happy with our stay here.

Center, TX


  • 3 of 5

Property was clean and in good area, however furnishings are cheap and many items are not there or not as described. Playstation doesn't work, games are not there or missing pieces. Hairdryers have wrong plugs on them. It's like none of these things have been checked for a long time. Beds are cheap and uncomfortable, sofas are sagging. Game room will keep kids busy but pool table is unlevel and air hockey table doesn't work well either. This house could be nice but owners have chosen to go the cheapest route possible. I would look for a home with better quality furnishings next time. Interior needs upgrade.
