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.

We have been to Florida many times and have stayed at hotels, apartments and other villas booked through travel agents. This has been by far the cleanest villa we have been to. Plenty of room and the pool/Jacuzzi is amazing. The corner plot is very spacious so you have a great view and the sun shines ALL day which is great if you want a lazy morning or lazy afternoon in the sun or indeed both :):) Louise was very accommodating with us and would totally recommend the 'personal touch of owner's direct' rather than a travel agent. We also booked our flights direct with British Airways which worked our far more reasonable than booking with a holiday company. The villa on Emerald Island is very secure, gated entrance which gives you great peace of mind on safety. I cannot recommend this place more highly....5 star quality *****

Frederic responded very quickly to any queries and was very considerate. Pool was fantastic and the resort is very close to all theme parks. We would definitely book again !
