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.

The country club is based around a very challenging and beautifully landscaped golf course which also boasts great practice facilities and restaurants.

Weather in Emerald Island, Florida

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.

We stayed at Siesta Key for 21 nights as a party of 9. (could have been double that) the space was superb. The villa sits on a quiet road and the rear of the property looks onto the conservation grounds. Though you have neighbours we did not feel at any point that we were looked over. When we arrived the villa was clean and tidy, everything that we had hoped for. The jewel in the crown for this villa is the outside space, fantastic lanai with ceiling fans that were needed in July, although there was enough seats and loungers for everyone if i am being picky they could have been of better quality for the money that is paid. Great games room that everyone did take advantage of when the weather was bad. The villa is to a high standard and is very impressive, really did feel like a home from home. We had an issue with the pool while we were there that was sorted out by the pool guy Marty (really nice guy, loves a beer lol). From the time we booked 16 months before we were there, the owner Scot was fantastic to deal with answered all our questions promptly and professionally, we would not hesitate in booking this villa again. We were so close to the 192, celebration, disney, old town and lots of great restaurants you really are spoiled as to how close you are to everything. We done universal in 17 mins one morning. We had take away delivered no problems and used uber from the villa also with no issues. All the bedrooms were fantastic, what you see is what you get, plenty of towels for everyone. My wife fell in love with the washing machine and twin dryers, that were massive. Valet trash was fantastic, they do everything for you, no need to worry about taking the trash out. Kitchen was well appointed with everything you need. All in all a fantastic villa and a great place to stay.
