Emerald Isle or Windsor Hills recommendation

We are looking to stay at either Emerald Isle or Windsor Hills in the fall of 2012. We are looking for either a 4 bedroom villa with pool in Emerald Isle or a 3 bedroom townhouse with splash pool in Windsor Hills. If anyone has any specific recommendations of places where you've had good experiences with the owners I'd greatly appreciate it. There are so many rentals to go through, it would really help to get an actual recommendation to help narrow it down. Thanks.

We'll be in a 4br at EI in a couple of weeks, I'll post back how it is. Both resorts are nice. We've had a couple of 6 br in WH and a 7 in EI so that's not much help to you. We did stay in this WH townhouse but it was 5 years ago. It was nice then. http://www.vrbo.com/69056

The following thread has some specific recommendations for 3 BR townhomes in Windsor Hills:


Good luck with your search! We usually stay at a 4 BR home in Windsor Hills, but Emerald Island looks very nice as well.

WH Townhouse Recommendation

We've have stayed twice at the WH Townhome at the link below. The owner is really great and the townhouse is spotless and furnished really well. You'll love the extra room versus staying onsite. Our kids loved the splash pool at night after a long day at Disney. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Tell him the Duhon's from Texas recommended you.
