About the Property
Are you ready for a vacation? This crazy pandemic has been so difficult on all of us for so many different reasons. Maybe you need to get out of your house for a few days or a couple of weeks to change up your environment and soak in the sunshine. Mickey's Mansion is an amazing place to relax and leave your worries behind. You will have everything you need to have the perfect escape even if you never want to leave the house. You will have your own private south facing pool and spa (pool heat additional cost - you get the most sunshine during the day). We offer a fun Harry Potter themed game room with air hockey, foosball and pool table (a real slate table - no foo foo pool table here). Nothing like a little family friendly competition! There's a new lady in the house! Ms. Pac Man that is. Enjoy this iconic arcade game from your childhood as you introduce this classic to a whole new generation. In addition, a Wii console has been added for some extra fun and good old fashion exercise. There's even a spot to take selfies with Harry Potter props. Enjoy movies on the new 65" screen smart TV, play cards, board games or put together puzzles if you're looking for a bit of a challenge. There is a large selection of children's books to read to the kids before they drift off to sleep. Want to watch a movie together as a family or do you want the kids to watch in their own bedrooms upstairs? There are plenty of DVD's to select from to satisfy all ages. You'll have everything you need to cook in the fully equipped kitchen but there are also plenty of restaurants who do takeout to mix it up a bit so it's a vacation for the chefs too. If the kids are learning virtually, why not do school at Mickey's Mansion? Are you working remotely? Do your job in paradise. Free WiFi included. Plenty of table space inside and outside under the covered lanai to get work done (even if it rains). A change of scenery may just be what your family needs!
Mickey's Mansion is a lovely 8 bedroom manor with enough room for family and friends to come together and escape real life for awhile. A short drive to Disney, Sea World and Universal Studios, located in the beautiful Emerald Island Resort, a 24 hour secure, gated community. After a day at the parks, relax in your own private south facing pool and spa or cook a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy the company of your friends or family on the lanai or downstairs living room boasting a 65 inch smart TV. Or if you rather, retreat to one of the eight bedrooms for a little quiet time. The downstairs king master bedroom has a new, comfy mattress and its own private bath. Also on the bottom floor is a twin bedroom decorated for those who love all things Mickey Mouse. Bottom floor also has a half bath, laundry room with large washer and dryer, and game room hosting a new pool table, foosball table, air hockey, Ms. PacMan arcade and a Wii console. Upstairs is another king master bedroom and ensuite. Two more twin bedrooms are nicely decorated for all those Frozen and Star Wars fans. There is one more king bedroom and two queens, all with new, comfortable mattresses. Seven of the bedrooms have its own ceiling fan and private TV. There is seating for 12 under the covered lanai with extra chairs. A crib, pack n play, two chair attachable high chairs, two soft booster seats, step stool in Mickey bathroom, and umbrella strollers are all included free of charge for those of you bringing little ones. No need to drag it all with you. If you use any of the baby/toddler items, please clean well with soap and water before leaving your last day.

Bright, cheery, comfy, cozy home to give you that sunny Florida feel. When you are on vacation in Florida you want to be in a home that is bright, fresh and clean. Florida, after all, is a tropical paradise, so why shouldn't the home you stay in be that as well? Staying in a home vs. a hotel has a load of benefits all on its own. Instead of being confined to one room with two beds which most hotel rooms offer, a home with eight bedrooms brings the whole family or a maybe a couple of families together under one roof. A house gives everyone a unique opportunity to be together when you want to be , but also the ability to retreat to your own private corners when you desire quiet or alone time. Outside space offers easy access to fresh air and relaxing in the pool or around the tables right at your fingertips. As renters ourselves, and Florida home owners since January 2020, we know what we like in a home when we rent, so we want to pass that along the same quality and comfort to our guests. We wouldn't settle for anything less so we don't expect our guests to either.
Why Kids Love It
Kids will love being so close to all the major theme parks. They will love their own private pool when they come back from long days at Disney, Sea World or Universal Studios. Or maybe if the family takes the day off from the parks, they can enjoy the pool all day long or take a ride to the club house to swim in the big pool! There are nature walking trails and sand volleyball or a children's park within walking distance of the villa. If it happens to rain one day, there are DVD's available to watch and games to play. When it's time for bed, they will love retreating to their Mickey, Frozen or Star Wars room ready for a good night's rest dreaming of their next day's adventures!
Located in Emerald Island Resort, a 24 hour, secured, gated community, a short drive to theme parks, restaurants and every kind of shopping imaginable. The property's club house hosts a beautiful heated outdoor pool and spa, exercise room and Tiki Bar with a small menu of food and drinks for purchase. Take a walk on the resort's nature walking trails, enjoy a game of volley ball in the sand volleyball court, shoot some hoops in the basketball court, or try your hand at tennis on one of the tennis courts. There are children's play areas throughout the community, one located within walking distance of our home. Emerald Island is a quiet, family friendly community, a great place to relax and come home to after long days of running around. It's a community that has something for everyone, whether you're young or just young at heart.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
A children's play area is just around the corner.
Favorite Places To Eat
For those that want something fast or on the go, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, McDonalds and Taco Bell are just minutes away. Let's not forget HOT Krispy Kreme donuts for the mornings. If you are looking to sit down and have a meal close to Emerald Island, there is an Outback, Red Lobster, Bonefish Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen, Cracker Barrel, Texas Road House, Bob Evans, Olive Garden, Panera Bread, Miller's, On the Border, Bahama Breeze, and many more. There is also Chinese takeout and pizza. If you want a place to walk around and enjoy some outdoor dining, downtown Celebration is beautiful. Celebration Town Tavern is just one of many restaurants there with great food and service. Kilwins Ice Cream Shop and a tasty macaroon shop are right there too. If you want ice cream near the house, Twistee Treat is right on Route 192, a short drive from the villa and it's so good! We recently discovered a delicious, authentic Italian restaurant called Villa Italiano Chophouse a short drive away. Another great place to shop, eat and walk around is Sunset Walk. Very close to EIR and has great shops and restaurants to choose from.
There is a 24 hour Walmart that is always hopping no matter what time you are there. We prefer the Walmart on Route 27 in Clermont. It's a little less crazy than the local Walmart and only about six miles away. The Super Target is a short drive from the resort and much quieter and less hectic. Love this store! Publix is only a short drive away and very clean and well stocked. And Walgreens is only a couple miles away if you need their services for any reason. We have a great property manager who is local and available to provide support if and when needed.
Masks are still required at most stores, restaurants and theme parks so don't forget to bring your face coverings!

About the owner: We have lived in New Jersey all of our lives but thrilled to own a little piece of paradise in sunny Florida. It's a home we love to share with awesome guests and with those we love most in this world. We love to travel (especially cruising - pre-pandemic that is) and spend time with family and friends whether it's swimming, taking walks, playing cards and board games (love Phase 10) or chatting around the fire pit. The family motto we try to live by goes like this: "Life is short. Make the most of it. Put God first. Love deeply. Forgive quickly. Laugh a lot!"
Why this property? Our family has always talked about owning a home in the Disney area . We have been frequent visitors since we were kids. And of course our girls grew up on Disney too. We live in New Jersey so visiting Florida during our long, cold winters, is wonderful. We also find being at Disney and the other theme parks to be a little escape from reality anytime of the year. Our dream to own a home in Florida became a reality for us in January 2020 (right before Covid hit - yikes!). It's great not to only have it for ourselves, but also to be able to share it with others. We are most definitely grateful, thankful and blessed. Emerald Island Resort is a beautiful, quiet, family friendly community close to everything we love to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
From the second my family & I booked our trip the communication between Les & JoAnn was fantastic. They reached out to let us know the booking went through, sent recommendations on where to stop along the way of our road trip and even what the best restaurants were around the house as well. We were greeted with some treats and a super CLEAN house (which was huge for my family with COVID currently happening). Everything was kid and adult friendly. I was worried at first because we had two under two year olds staying with us on the trip and the house was SO kid friendly they were able to crawl and walk around risk free. Highly, highly, recommend. 10/10 ! My family and I checked out and already want to plan when we can go back!
Hosts were very accommodating and helpful! Very clean and comfortable beds and furniture! Perfect size and space for 16 of us. (8 adults, 8 kids). The best house we've stayed at so far in the Kissimmee area! Thanks again for letting us share your home!
Had an amazing stay with my family at Mickey’s Mansion. The location is great, the pool was perfect and the game room was a plus. Our family made some great memories there. Lester was so accommodating when we requested to extend our stay last minute. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Orlando in the future.
We really enjoyed our time at Mickey's Mansion. The property owner is very responsive and makes sure that you are able to enjoy your vacation with no worries. Traveling with a dog, a 6 month old infant and a 5 year old comes with a host of challenges but we had a blast once we actually were onsite and settled in. There were so many fun memories. When we do another Disney trip..we hope this property is open.
Our family had an amazing experience staying at the Mickey Mansion. The owners are fantastic. They are very authentic and want you to have a great experience. I would highly recommend renting this property and would rent any property owned by these owners. They are the best! Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, caring and helpful. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. :-)
A wonderful, well decorated, well organized, clean house, large outdoor pool area with 2 tables - and a great location! Owners have paid attention to every detail - above and beyond! They are also easy to communicate with! The game room is super fun - which led to family game tournaments, kitchen is large and well organized & labeled. We spent hours by the pool and walking the neighborhood and nature trail. Overall the best VRBO experience & house we've stayed in! Highly recommend for your next trip to the Orlando Area. THANK YOU for a wonderful stay!
Planning a trip for 13 people to Disney for a week is no small feat. It is even harder when you are a busy medical professional in a global pandemic. Add in that this group originated in three different states and included 7 children (ages 12, 9, 7, 4, 2, 17m, 8m) and you have a recipe for a logistical nightmare. If that wasn’t enough, I was keeping the inclusion of my brother’s family on this trip from my parents as a surprise.
Enter Les and JoAnn.
They are absolutely fantastic! The property is beautiful, clean, and exactly as advertised. There is clear attention to detail as they have worked to create a vacation home that is both comfortable and functional for families. Our children loved the themed rooms and we never felt cramped. It was a true home away from home. A real gem!
However, what sets Mickey’s Mansion apart are Les and JoAnn, themselves. I have seldom encountered better communication, responsiveness, and concern for the guest experience. They went above and beyond to do what they could to make our vision for the trip a reality and when we encountered a few, minor hiccups along the way, they were right there to address it.
We now consider this OUR Disney house and hope to return soon.
Great owners! Nice house and pool table !
Mickey's Magic Mansion was perfect for our families to bring in the new year together. The overall property and amenities were spot on. The houses was very clean, had welcoming decor and was well supplied; from a kitchen griddle for family pancakes to wine glasses for a new year celebration. The game room kept many happy and the pool, hot tub and chaise lounge had others relaxed and content. The welcome bag was greatly appreciated and definitely used. We enjoyed the lanai the most, that space allowed us to laugh, barbecue, swim and have a family game night together. We made wonderful memories. This house will always be special given this is the start of our annual large family vacations. Les, Joann and the property team were wonderful to work with.
Our family spent Christmas at Mickey’s Mansion and it was absolutely perfect. The house is less than 15 minutes from all the Disney parks and is close to restaurants and shopping. The owners are great and very attentive to your every need. They made sure we had a Christmas tree and also left us a welcome gift. The owners are by far the best people you will ever rent from.
The house was amazing and the hosts were very nice and responsive. We used this house as a place to host our family vacation and every one of us had an amazing time. The kids absolutely loved the game room! We will definitely be back!
This house is everything you want for a vacation. Plenty of space and amenities, pool ,hot tub, game room, full kitchen and grill. Great area close to parks and all types of restaurants. Les is always making sure you have it all We had a perfect time together and recommend the house to everyone. We hope to get back as soon as possible. Thank you again
The house was perfect everything was perfect the owner is great I will be returning again
We had a great vacation and absolutely loved the house! The theming of the house was perfect! The kids and the adults all loved it. The pool And jacuzzi were amazing. The double tables outside were very helpful so everybody had a place to sit and eat. The kids loved the Harry Potter theme game game room. The beds were so comfortable. The host checked in on us to make sure everything was perfect throughout our stay and they were accessible if we had any questions. There were plenty of pool towels and shower towels which we really appreciated. The home came equipped with all our necessary kitchen needs and Equipment for the little kids. Overall all Amazing stay and we will definitely be staying here again. We have stayed at this resort a few times in other houses but this house was by far our favorite house.
Mickey’s Mansion is just perfect, the house is beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. The Disney themed bedrooms were a hit for everyone – young and old. The kitchen is fully equipped and has plenty of seating in the dining room and kitchen. We all enjoyed time in the Harry Potter game room. We also enjoyed spending time in the pool and jacuzzi. Although we did not go to the parks the house is conveniently located to all the Disney theme parks. The house is well maintained, and the owners were very attentive to any questions we had. It’s obvious they take pride in their house and want you to enjoy your time there. Can’t wait to go back
We were looking for a pet friendly property for a weekend holiday to visit with our daughter and her boyfriend who we haven’t seen since Covid shut everything down. Les & Jo-Ann couldn’t be more gracious hosts in the booking process (VRBO wasn’t taking my credit card for some reason and they offered to call them to see if there was anything they could do) and we worked it out. They checked In to ensure everything was good to make our stay memorable and encouraged us to call property manager if we needed anything The house is welcoming and tastefully decorated. Plenty of space indoor and outside for meals swimming, games, relaxing, watching tv or catching up with family and friends The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need if you’re cooking in and linens and towels are of good quality! The property is conveniently located to all the parks, shopping and dining at D/T Disney & Margueritaville (H2O!) and one of our favorites - Island grove wine company! Simply put, this house is perfect for your family reunion and vacation! They have a crib in the upstairs bedroom, pool floats and toys, high chair and stroller - amenities for free that you’d normally pay extra for! Although this was a spontaneous long weekend, we’re already thinking about a reunion w/ extended family from TX, MA, and VA !
This getaway was just what my family needed. It was the perfect change of scenery. We were able to go to Mickey's Mansion to celebrate my son's birthday. His favorite things were the Star Wars Room, Harry Potter game room and lots of pool time. Although we did not go into the parks, we had much needed family time in sunny Florida. The hosts were very kind and easy to communicate with. We will definitely be back again!
My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at the Mickey Mansion! The location is very convenient to all of the Disney parks as well as Universal and many other attractions. Mickey’s Mansion is a Disney fan’s dream! We loved the rooms decorated in a Disney theme as well as the Harry Potter Game room. There is always something to do for all! Rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable beds. Kitchen is well equipped with all of the necessities and The place was extremely clean! Also, you can’t forget the pool and jacuzzi ! We would highly recommend Mickey’s Mansion to everyone who wants to relax, enjoy and have fun!!!
With being cooped up for so long with Covid, it was great to get away for a few days and just relax with my family and another family of good friends. We swam in the private pool, played games and just enjoyed each other's company. This home was beautiful, comfortable and had plenty of room for all of us. Hopefully when the world returns to normal again, we will be able to come back and enjoy all that Orlando has to offer.
We absolutely loved the home and neighborhood! Although all of the attractions were closed, we enjoyed family time at the home. The kids swam in the pool several hours a day. We enjoyed the pool table and game room. It was relaxing to walk around the neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again!
For starters Les was an amazing host, very personable, effective communicator, catered to the needs in regards to the amenities for my family and was very hospitable. The house exceeded our expectations: the pool and spa was a major plus, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook with, there was a first-aid kit, the grill was clean, there were plenty pool floats, the rooms were spacious, the beds were extremely comfortable, the game room was a plus, and the neighborhood was safe and beautiful. I plan a family trip every year for my family and sometimes it is a hit or miss finding a vacation home that will please everyone but we all have agreed that Les’s home was the best that we have stayed in and we will be booking with him again on our next Disney trip. I can’t thank Les enough for allowing us to stay in his spectacular home.
Es una muy bonita casa, muy bien ubicada y espaciosa. Todo funciona muy bien: la piscina, la mesa de billar y otros juegos. Regresaría nuevamente a la casa de Les
It is a very nice house, very well located and spacious. Everything works very well: the pool, the pool table and other games. I would go back to Les's house again
Great vacation home for my large family. There was enough room for us to spread out indoors and out. We ranged in age from 3 – 78 It was nice my grandparents could use the bottom bedroom/bathroom without having to climb stairs. We cooked in and grilled a couple evenings and had everything we needed. We were appreciative of the comfortable new beds. It was also nice to have TV’s and DVD players in the bedrooms. It helped potential fights from breaking out when everyone couldn’t agree on what to watch. Pool looked nice although we did not have enough time to use it. Les and Joanne were on top of things and nice people to work with. No complaints. Close to everything which is a definite plus. Recommend this home to anyone. We’ll be back when we need our next Disney/Harry Potter fix
The home had a ton of updates, was beautiful, and provided us with an absolutely incredible vacation! No one wanted to leave to do all of the preplanned activities we had arranged! The owners were super responsive, and sincerely care about their guests. I would recommend this home to anyone
Enjoyed our stay at Lester's. Beautiful house with plenty of room for our family. Close to attractions and shopping when we needed to pick up things.
Lovely Vacation Home
This by far was the nicest stay I’ve had in Florida the owners are amazing the property was stunning and I had no worries at all. I will say I’ll be using this home again soon thanks for everything
Stayed: December 2020Submitted: December 17, 2020
This is a MUST RENT!! Amazing home and awesome owners!!
Our vacation stay in this home, especially during COVID-19, was truly a GOD sent blessing!! The home was beautiful and comfortable. The owners were helpful, friendly and attentive to any need we could have, although we had NO ISSUES. It was truly a memorable family trip. We did not want to go out too much due to the pandemic, so we thoroughly enjoyed every part of the house, especially the pool, Jacuzzi and the grill. Our neighbors were nice and jealous ;) of our fun in our gorgeous spacious home as they constantly smelled the aroma of good cookout food that they raved over. We have been coming to Florida for years in celebration of my mother's heavenly birthday, but by all means this trip was one of the best. The drive was wonderful with NO TRAFFIC on I-4 and the house was great. You cannot go wrong with booking this house! It came equipped with everything!! WE WILL DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN!!
