Emerald Island Resort home for large groups. Private pool, shared hot tub & more

Looking for a spacious home for your large family getaway? Look no further than this Kissimmee home with a private pool and spa, plus easy access to world-famous theme parks. It also features community amenities, including tennis courts, a heated community swimming pool and hot tub, an arcade-style video game room, and much more! Accommodating up to 17 guests, it's a great choice for a family reunion or a company retreat.

Welcome to the Emerald Island Resort, a luxury community boasting, in addition to those amenities already mentioned, a full basketball court and volleyball courts, a Tiki bar, two playgrounds, a clubhouse with daily shuttles to theme parks, and a fitness center. Only a half mile from Route 192, it's also conveniently situated near restaurants, supermarkets, and golf courses.

An elegant space with deluxe furnishings, thoughtful decor, and a private, screened-in pool with an attached whirlpool spa, this eight-bedroom home is perfect for entertaining large groups. Spread out on brown leather couches in the living room, then flip on the television and catch up with a favorite cable series. You could also bring group conversation to the family room, or relax outside with a refreshing cup of sweet tea. You'll even find a game room with pool and foosball tables, perfect for a group tournament.

Just beyond sliding glass doors, the backyard features a screened-in pool that's perfect for cooling down when the temperature is high, and also makes a great place for an al fresco meal.

Speaking of dining, the open concept kitchen back inside offers all the necessary appliances, cooking accessories, and countertop space to whip up homemade meals while you're here. Eat together at the six-seat table, or take the meal onto the pool deck where you'll find seating for six more.

Afterward, challenge your group to a pool tournament in the home's game room, catch some afternoon sun rays on poolside loungers, or head out to explore the community amenities. You could also start a fresh load of laundry in the washer/dryer, or connect to the WiFi to plan your next adventure.

When it's time to call it a day, retire for restful slumber in any of eight bedrooms. Up to 16 guests are accommodated, with sleeping options including a king bed and baby crib in the downstairs master suite, king beds in the second master suite and third bedroom upstairs, queen beds in the fourth and fifth upstairs bedroom, and two twin beds (six total) in the other three bedrooms (two upstairs, one downstairs), which also feature kid-friendly decor that your little ones will love! Four full bathrooms and a half bath ensure everyone gets their fair share of mirror time.

Additional amenities include a land line for local and domestic calls, TVs in every bedroom, an ironing board, a high chair, a stroller, and board games for your whole group to enjoy.

Ready for some theme park fun? Just three miles east lies Walt Disney World, while SeaWorld Orlando is about 13 miles northeast. Universal Studios is a straight shot up Interstate 4 (17 miles northeast), and if you go a few miles farther you'll find downtown Orlando with cultural neighborhoods, vibrant shopping, and eclectic dining options.

The home was very spacious. It is ideal for large family travel. The community was very quiet. The beds were super comfy! We went to the clubhouse for pool and spa, as there was some type of malfunction with the pool heating.

Some basic utensils were missing and what was there, was damaged. A new set is needed.

The furniture in the common areas was nice at one time but really need to be replaced. The dining room chairs had no support in the backing so we didn't sit at it. The kitchen chairs upholstery was cracked and worn with minimal support. The kitchen table surface looked dirty and couldn't be wiped clean. The lower bedroom sliding doors would not lock. One of the screen panels encasing the pool was ripped. The hot tub did not heat. The game room was a joke. The pool table had 2 missing balls so you could not use it. The foosball table was functional but looked dated. The game room sofa was made of cloth and looked nasty and dirty. Lastly, being that the game room was a bust, the young people were playing their gaming systems and couldn't do that on our last full day because the wifi could not connect. The bathroom doors also did not lock. There was also an issue with ants in the upper bathrooms. The garbage cans were all full from the previous renters and filled with maggots so we had no place to put our garbage and had to keep it in the house. We placed 3 wine coolers on the refrigerator door shelf and the shelf fell breaking all of the bottles. Some of these comments were posted by previous guests months ago and should have been addressed!!

Overall, I had no concerns when dealing with Vacasa. I think you should do a more thorough assessment of the condition of the rental properties and make sure that issues are addressed. Some of the same complaints I voiced, I saw others post months ago. For example, something as simple as replacing a set of balls for the pool table could have been replaced. It is not all about collecting the guests money!! The little things count!
Manager response:
The dining chairs are new and in great condition for use. The sofa in the game room looks dated/old because it is the family room furniture that went into the game room after the owner replaced all sofas in the living area. We will look at the pool table ball set and replace it if needed. The WiFi is controlled by the resort. It is correct that by the end of the month, they were upgrading the WiFi. Thanks!

The WiFi never worked.. pool water was very warm all the time... Home was not 100% clean...
Manager response:
We apologize if the pool was too warm. After receiving this review we discovered a previous guest broke into the electrical and turned on the heater without our knowledge. We are waiting for the community to upgrade the internet service and apologize if the WiFi was not satisfactory at this time. Thank you!

Pros: House is located close to Disney in a beautiful gated community. House is large and has all of the amenities.

Cons: House needs TLC - Carpet in Living room has large visible stains and was very dirty. Carpets upstairs also stained and disgusting. Needs a good paint job, visible dirt on walls and baseboards. Dishwasher top rack broken and would fall out every time you tried to load it. Everything in the kitchen was sticky, cabinets, tables, countertops, etc…Needs a good cleaning. Large bugs found in every room, kitchen, bathroom and upstairs bedrooms, alive and dead, I believe the house is infested. None of the smoke alarms had batteries in them, we knew this because all of them were opened where the batteries go, a major fire violation. Upstairs bathroom door does not lock. Refrigerator door shelves were missing, making it hard to put stuff in refrigerator. Game room was disgusting, filled with a full layer of leaves, couch in there is extremely dirty, pool table warped, and all pool sticks broken, was not able to use. Pool was filthy upon arrival, screens around the pool area were ripped, chairs were dirty and broken, pool heater didn’t work. Jacuzzi would empty if you turn the jets on. Pool filter stopped working, pool was visibly dirty and could not be used. Called for service every day but could not get pool issues resolved.
Manager response:
We appreciate having the opportunity to respond to this feedback. We were unable to discover any issues with the dishwasher, and guests after this reservation have not had any issues. We apologize if it was acting up for this guest. Carpets are scheduled to be cleaned the first week of April, and the pool filter has been cleaned and the cartridge replaced. The house is treated for pests monthly; a cold snap will drive some bugs inside that will then die from the treatment. We did intentionally disable the kids' bathroom from being able to lock; we apologize if it was a nuisance for this guest. The garage is kept shut as it is a game room, but it is not bolted shut for exit safety purposes. We apologize this guest did not have a better stay and hope to have another chance to impress them.
