Make a holiday rental home or villa in Emerald Island, Florida your home away from home

Emerald Island is located just four miles from the front gates of Orlando’s premium attraction; Walt Disney World.

Not only is it a luxury housing complex, but it is also brimming with excellent leisure facilities and luxury accommodation.

Things to do on holiday in Emerald Island, Florida

Emerald Island villas, Orlando, are so close to Walt Disney Land that you can enjoy the evening firework displays from the patio of your holiday villa, gently sipping a cocktail while you eat. The front gates are only a five minute drive from Emerald Island, meaning that it is the perfect place to stay if you are taking a holiday to Disney Land if you would like to live in a little privacy and peace! The other huge attractions of Orlando, like Universal Studios, Wet and Wild and Seaworld are also within 20 minutes.

In order to enjoy your holiday to an Emerald Island villa in Orlando you do not even have to leave the complex. It is one of the most lavishly designed housing developments in the region with communal swimming pools, spas, saunas, tennis courts, walking and biking trails, gyms and a range of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Being located in the heart of Florida, an Emerald Island villa is within a stones throw of some world class golf courses. The Champion’s Gate golf course, the most famous in the area, is only a short drive away, but there are many other courses in the vicinity too.

If you have rented a hire car from the airport, you can easily reach the Gulf Coast in an hour, and take advantage of some of the best beaches in the whole of the USA. The white, powder soft sand beaches are blissfully tranquil, lapped gently by warm clear waters, and surrounded by beautiful scenery. The rural parts of Florida through which you will travel in order to reach the beaches are teeming with wildlife, especially the mangrove areas, and tours can be arranged on foot, bike, car or boat.

When I booked on behalf of the other family staying with us, I was concerned having read the first review. Dee who manages the property was very reassuring. From what I had read I thought we may have to compromise with a property that had insects and that may be a little worse for wear. I couldn't have been more wrong! To my delight, the house was spotlessly clean throughout the kitchen, lounge, bedrooms bathrooms and pool area and my friends said what a lovely villa it was. The linen was clean and the beds were the most comfortable we've slept on any holiday. When not out, we enjoyed spending evenings out on the ample seating area by the pool, a very private, peaceful place overlooking trees and bushes. I'm not sure what the previous visitors did to attract insects, but we were careful to clear up food each time we ate and didn't experience one single cockroach in the kitchen during our whole three week stay! The rooms are so large and roomy, eight of us sharing six bedrooms meant there was potential for the teenagers to use a spare room or additional shower when needed. The cinema room came into it's own to give them their own space as well. Expecting bugs and used to holidays in various countries I'm used to constant insect bites, but didn't get bitten once during the whole stay! With the Disney Parks, Universal, SeaWorld, International Drive, the Outlets, etc a short drive away, we had so much to do within about 20 minute's drive. We highly recommend Marsh Landing Airboat tours to see the Aligators (ask for Chris, he's a brilliant guide - best to do 1.5 hours as it takes a while to get out to the Marsh). If you want to eat al fresco one evening, try Lake Mineola Inn & Tiki Bar in Clermont, a fair drive (about 45 mins), basic home made food, although well worth it sitting by a beautiful lake away from the fairly busy restaurants nearby. Out of all the Orlando resorts and villas we could have stayed in, we realised when there, that many didn't have a clubhouse, sports facilities, or were close to a highway. Emerald Island had everything we needed, with the villa only a short walk from the clubhouse, well-presented, large, clean and comfortable. Dee was helpful and accessible (the site had a powercut one evening and it was reassuring to get through straight away to get help). I would be comfortable recommending it to anyone who is looking for a quality Orlando stay.

We especially enjoyed the private pool. The only issue we had was it was extremely hot upstairs, even with the fans going. Overall, we would definitely rent this place again!

The furnishings and equipment are good quality and plentiful, Its the first Villa we have stayed in where 12 people can actually be together both in the lounge and the pool area with seats for all, there is also a second lounge if peace and quiet is needed!. . The beds are comfortable and everything was very clean and well maintained. The pool area is spacious and safe, the pool heating worked well. The games room good for all and there are books board games and DVD provided as well, We didnt get a chance to make use of these as we had a very busy fortnight but perfect for those who plan some time 'at home'. The location is very convenient for most things, Disney Parks only a few minuits away. Universal, Discovery Cove, Sea World only a short Drive, as is International Drive if shopping is the order of the day. For those eating in everything you would need in the kitchen is there, but for those wanting a break from cooking there are a good choice of eating places within a short drive, ranging from best quality steak houses to fast food outlets. The owner Tony was very helpful and quick to respond to all our queries, As were the staff at the Emerald Island Resort. Only one thing extra we would have likes is the option of having a welcome pack of a few basic groceries etc so we didnt have to go shopping late at night after a long journey. We would recommend this villa, and hope to book it again ourselves for our next visit.
