Sensational Summer Stay in Simbas Pride
We have just returned from our amazing 16 night stay in Simbas Pride, we found the Villa to have the wow factor there was so much space and the villa was well equiped with everything you could ever need during your stay. All of the bedrooms are luxurious and the beds extremely comfy. A lovely touch was the welcome pack when we arrived.

The location of the Villa is fabulous and only a short ride to the Disney Parks with lots of restaurants locally and its true my children did manage to watch the Disney Fireworks from the bedroom window !!!

From our initial enquiry we found the owners extremely helpful and responded to all of our emails immediately and just before we left the UK a detailed email prepared by the owners was sent full of great tips and hints.

I would highly recommend this Villa and all I can say is we had an amazing holiday and we were so sad to close the door on Simbas Pride - but you never know hopefully we may return :)

Simply the Best
Lorraine Martin
We have just returned from an absolutely wonderful 3 week stay in Simba's Pride Villa. Set in beautifully, landscaped gardens with dolphin statues and fountains, is the exclusive, gated community of Emerald Island Resort on which this superior villa is situated. Emerald Island Resort is one of the closest communities to Disney property - so close in fact that on exiting the resort, the towering 'Everest' can be seen from the car window and in the evenings you can hear and see some of the Disney fireworks from the villa. After long, hot days spent in the theme parks it was lovely knowing that in minutes we were back home in the villa and into the large refreshing pool, or lounging on the extremely comfortable pool furniture. Throughout the booking process Barry, the owner was extremely helpful and very responsive. After many years of renting villas in Florida I can honestly say Simba's Pride has been the best one we have ever stayed in. One entering the villa for the first time we just, the furnishings and decor were outstanding, clearly of a superior standard. The villa was immaculately clean, light and airy. The owner's description and photos are entirely accurate but even he can't get across just what a luxury villa this really is - they have thought of everything and more that a vacationer may look for in a perfect holiday home. It is difficult to pick out particular details of this villa that made it so special for us as genuinely everything was so great that the 2000 characters I am allowed to use in this review would not be near enough for what I would like to say. At the end of each day we would love to sit in the relaxing, bubbling Jacuzzi, reflecting on our day. Another little added touch was the welcome pack waiting for us on arrival - so no need for the initial "shopping trip for supplies” If you are looking for something just that bit extra special then look no further- Simba's Pride is quite simply ...the best.

Absolutely beautiful, so comfortable and homely."

"Absolutely beautiful, so comfortable and homely."

11 of us stayed at Simba's Pride villa for 16 nights in October 2011. We were all so impressed with the villa, it was a great size to accommodate 11 of us and we never got in the way of each other as there was so much room. Every room was beautifully decorated and furnished and nothing had been overlooked. The children loved their bedrooms, the animal Kingdom room even had cuddly toys in which the younger children loved. The pool area was fantastic with seating for everyone of us and a lanai to keep us cool on the hot days! We really did love everything about the villa and didn't want to leave. The location is also excellent, just about 10 minutes from the Disney parks and we were just off the 192 which has loads of restaurants which was great. There is also a Winn Dixie supermarket close by so the location was perfect. All in all a fantastic holiday and fantastic villa.
