We are so proud to be the recipients of Flipkey's 2012 Top Vacation Villa in the Kissimmee area. This is the second year in a row!! Thank you Flipkey and Tripadvisor! The Emerald Star now has beautiful new wood floors and flat screen TVs throughout and she is shining more than ever!
This Elegant Designer Villa with 7 Bedrooms and 4.5 Baths is appointed with the finest of furnishings and accessories. There is an Air Conditioned Game Room, Swimming Pool with Spa and all the comforts of home. Hair Dryers in every bathroom, and TV's in every bedroom, some with DVD's. Everything from the designer linens on your bed to the deluxe cookware in the gourmet kitchen will make this Villa a place you love to come home to, after a day at Disney or any of the other local attractions. We are two miles from the Disney Gate, you can hear the fireworks from Epcot and the Magic Kingdom on our extended sun-filled pool lanai. Disney is easily accessible from here via back roads - no need to get out onto the traffic jammed highway, which means you can come back to our home to rest, give the kid a nap, and then go back in the evening for the fireworks.
The kids have plenty to entertain them. The game room has a professional pool table, foos ball and air hockey games. There is a community playground right next door, a community clubhouse and pool if they would like to meet some other kids, or they can stay and enjoy the heated private pool out back.
Plenty of room for everyone to have a bit of privacy here!

A BLAST, June 22, 2009
By Bruce Griffin (New Orleans, LA USA)
My family and I had a "BLAST" it was our first time vacationing all under the same roof. The Villa was nice and roomy and the kids and a few of the adults enjoyed the pool each evening for hours. The location was perfect, everything was within minutes of the Resort and the Resort Community was beautiful and nicely maintained. When we come back to Florida, Emerald Island Resort and this Villa will be on the top of our list. I think the adults had more fun than the kids, LOL. It was GREAT.
Wonderful Vacation Home, March 9, 2009
By Becky (Naperville, IL USA)
We really enjoyed our stay at the Florida Star! The living space was very open and easy to hang out in, while the bedrooms all still felt private.
All-around Fantastic -- no negatives, March 10, 2008
By Mike (Eldersburg, MD)
I'll keep it short: Great, roomy house (we had 3 families, 6 kids). Clean & comfy. Close to Disney, food, shopping, etc. Little play set practically on the lot. Co-owner Kathy is super-responsive (no problems... just little questions I had that she responded to personally and quickly). When we go back in few years, we will stay again.

Disney vacation, February 13, 2008
By Mike and Ellen (Albion,NE)
We took our family of 13 on a Disney Vacation for the first time. We stayed at the Emerald Star which was a perfect place for us. The place was beautiful and had room for everyone. We enjoyed the pool and game room everynight. It was close to the theme parks and was easy to get to restaurants and stores. It helped make our Disney vacation a dream come true.
A wonderful home for your Orlando vacation, October 17, 2007
By Jacqueline (Cayman Islands)
We immensely enjoyed this spacious, elegant and well appointed home on our Orlando vacation. The home is in a great location with several local attractions and restaurants etc nearby. The home itself is elegant yet extremely comfortable. Our daughters loved the theme rooms and enjoyed that each room had its own TV. We had a fabulous stay and would definitely stay in this home again. A couple of minor things that would make this wonderful place even better is 1)having more light and ventilation in the game room, - (IT's BEEN DONE) and 2)hi-speed internet ( NOW AVAILABLE) (although there is an open wireless in range from the dining table)TripAdvisor property ID 2296650...Read more
Left on 04/14/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | Emerald Star - A great family vacationReviewed Apr 14, 2014Stayed Apr 2014
Thank you so much Emerald Star for a perfect family home. We had thirteen in our group and never felt crowded with 7 bedrooms and 5 baths. The game room was a terrific way for the boys to spend their time and the pool and jacuzzi was beautiful and we seem to be in it all the time. There was every amenity you could possibly need. Emerald Star is just minutes from Disney and a great choice for any family when going to Orlando. We will be sure to tell our friends and family to check it out for their next Disney vacation.
Thanks for the great review. Lenore and I are so happy your family enjoyed your holiday. We look forward to seeing you at our home in the future. Your family is just perfect for the Emerald Star!
