Pool & Spa
Our large 14'x30' Swimming Pool and Spa are south-facing and have the unique advantage over many other villas in that the entire pool and spa area will be soaked in sunlight all day long. It is surrounded by a large extended paved patio and a screened lanai with cooling ceiling fans should you prefer to sit in the shade. The pool deck is furnished with chairs, tables, and beach beds which allows you to just lie back, relax and enjoy the Florida sun.
The entire pool area faces a conservation view and pond.
If you find the pool is a little cool for your liking, it can be fully heated at an additional daily charge (recommended for October to March). The pool deck is fully screened which helps to keep the pool clean and the wildlife out. The pool is serviced weekly by professionals so you can be sure it is clean and safe to swim in.
The luxurious raised Spa is a great way to relax and is able to accommodate up to four people at once. Not a bad way to discuss tomorrow's adventures! Those guests traveling with little ones will be glad to know that the Pool area has a complete child safety fence. In addition all doors leading to pool are alarmed.
Pool and Spa have privacy from the neighboring homes on both sides due to judiciously placed shrubs.
As you first enter the luxurious villa, you first see the spacious living room with a comfortable sofa with the dining area located to the rear of the room. This room can be enjoyed as a reading room.
The formal dining area is located adjacent to the living room and has a large table with seating for up to 8 diners and is beautifully set out for those special dining occasions.
The family room with its two-story ceilings is spacious, with a comfortable sofa, complemented by love seat, coffee table, and two end tables with lamps, 46" flat screen TV, a DVD player and a Sony Play Station 3 games console with games.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I live in Michigan with my wife and two beautiful kids. We started owning and renting vacation homes in tropical Emerald Island Resort in Kissimmee Florida in 2007. We enjoy visiting the many attractions in Florida while staying in our vacation homes. When I am not busy, I enjoy cooking and doing BBQ.
Why we chose Emerald Island Resort in Kissimmee: We stayed in hotels and vacation homes before we bought our first vacation home. During that time we rented homes that were marketed as 'Minutes from Disney" only to learn that it could mean as much as 59 minutes! So, when we started looking to buy our first vacation home in Disney World area, our first criteria was that it must be "within 5 minutes to Disney". We found our charming 3 bed townhome now called "Mickey's Magic" in Emerald Island Resort which is less than 3 miles to Disney. We actually drove to confirm that it takes less than 5 minutes to Disney before we bought the house. Over the years we bought additional properties in the same community.
It gives me great pleasure to accurately represent our homes and interacting and providing useful information to guests. Many guests are surprised as to how quickly I tend to respond to their queries, and I jokingly tell them that you will get the same quick responses from me unless I am dead or dying :-) Another key aspect of my philosophy is to refund the guest's damage deposit within 48 hours of departure. Some guests got their deposits even before they reached home.
I hope you will choose one of our vacation homes in Emerald Island for your next Disney World vacation. Even if you don't please feel free to ask e any questions about Disney area vacations, attractions and activities. If I don't have the answers, I will find out for you.
Why this property? Our villas are located within 5 minutes (3 miles) to Disney World. All our rentals have a south-facing pool and spa. We provide free BBQ grill which is usually charged at $75/week by others.
Dory's Magic villa also has a nice conservation and lake view with no rear-neighbors. With all bedrooms having an en-suite or Jack 'n Jill bathroom is an added advantage to this villa. Not to mention the 120" theater room and game-room with pool table.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Just wanted to thank you for our wonderful stay in your Villa, the whole family had a fantastic time, hopefully we will return in the future.
Well Marketed. Good Location and Very Responsive Owner. It was well worth to have the pool heated.
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 quesion 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 emasculate an 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.
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.
What a lovely experience we all had at the lovely 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;0) ) 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!
