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. As this location might suggest, Emerald Island is not actually an island, but a conservation in mainland Florida. 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.

Places to holiday in Emerald Island, Florida

The Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club and Haines City are just 8 miles south of an Emerald Island villa. The country club is based around a very challenging and beautifully landscaped golf course which also boasts great practice facilities and restaurants. The natural lakes which adorn the area mean that fishermen will feel right at home. The network of lakes is also a great base of marine wildlife tours, canoe trips and cycling along their banks.

Weather in Emerald Island, Florida

Emerald Lakes benefits hugely from Florida’s glorious climate. There is no ‘off-peak’ season in Florida as winter temperatures average over 21˚C, and the golf courses, theme parks and natural landscape draw visitors to Emerald Island villas from around the world. In summer, average temperatures reach over 30˚C, meaning the beaches and luxury, private swimming pools which many Emerald Lake villas have, are essential assets.

Flights to Emerald Island, Florida

Orlando International Airport (MCO) is just half an hour from Emerald Island, meaning that a villa here is one of the easiest to reach outside of Orlando. British Airways and BMI both provide regular, direct flights from the UK.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

We needed a villa that was large enough to accommodate 12 of us, had sufficient bathrooms to alleviate queuing, and had enough space so as not to be on top of each other for those quiet times. Siesta Key met all our requirements and then some. Seven spacious bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 dining areas, 2 lounges and a huge games room. A wonderful pool and hot pool area and a Weber BBQ to boot. Overlooking lake and woodland to the rear giving a real sense of privacy. On the gated Emerald Island resort just off the 192 one felt secure at all times. The estate is amazingly well maintained and the shrubbery is very pretty. the clubhouse staff are very helpful. DIsney resorts are just a 15 min drive away with Universal resorts 30 minutes away. Exceptionally located for choice of restaurants ( red lobster and Outback Steakhouse just a 5 minute drive or if you are feeling energetic a 20 minute walk) Only needed to communicate once with the management company to request a gas bottle for the bbq but it was delivered the same day. The communication with Villa owner Scott was effortless and smooth. If you are planning a Florida trip where you really don't want to be worrying about the quality of your accommodation then book Siesta Key ... you will not be disappointed! Genuinely I have now been to Florida 6 times in the past 20 years each time in private villas, Siesta Key has to be the best, I can't recommend it highly enough.

The accommodation very comfortable and clean. The beds are to die for bed linen fresh and clean. The towels little tired. One has to have a car, nearest shops for provisions 10 min drive supermarket take a way foods liquor store etc. The doors and windows in need of a little TLC. However this didn't effect our stay. Didn't use the barbecue as it hadn't been cleaned from the previous guest although we will be reimbursed £50.00 which we paid extra for. Once again didn't effect our stay. Great cooker and microwave all clean giant fridge freezer washing machine and dryer in good working order . Two working Irons kettle and coffee maker .The vacuum didn't work so we have informed the owner. The patio windows were so clean at night kept on walking into them. Their was evidence that a previous guest must of done this as the lock on the door was broken and so was the fly screen. We stuck some red safety tape on the doors to prevent any injuries especially with children. The games room we used alot great idea. Once we got the grasp of the American roads found the bungalow very central to all 3 Disney parks, bit far from Universal studios. about 60 miles plus. Would we stay here again a big yes. unfortunately we cant as we have knee problems. The most thing one would require is good working walking legs at the Disney parks. Thankyou Benny and Sully for such a magical holiday. Fran Andy Sutton. xxx
