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.

Beautiful Villa in a peaceful setting

5 of 5
We absolutely loved this villa and would not hesitate to stay there again. Emerald Island is a lovely gated community and is a genuine 10 minute drive to Disney even in the heaviest of traffic. The villa has everything you could want from a villa, large spacious rooms which are all beautifully decorated and everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We had a bit of an issue with a patio alarm which kept going off but a quick phone call to the management company soon sorted that out. The villa has everything you need if you wanted to cook for yourselves (we didn't!) and there is a supermarket a 2 minute drive away as well as a Publix and Walmart within easy driving distance as well as some lovely restaurants (try Outback, the steak was superb). Kerry was brilliant in responding to all our questions before our trip and nothing was too much trouble for her. As previously said, the management company and pool maintenance guys were friendly, helpful and responded to us immediately. The best feature of this villa is not being overlooked and having that beautiful lake view to look at with your cuppa every morning. The wildlife we saw was fantastic - birds of prey, herons, cranes and storks - no alligators though! It was lovely and peaceful and we all loved our stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to very soon! Louise W, Gloucestershire.

5 of 5
The villa is lovely and the owner was very helpful and quick in answering all questions. Close to all the parks, about 10 mins drive to the gates of Disney and about 20 mins to universal parks. The villa was lovely, well equipped and clean throughout. The pool and jacuzzi were a nice temperature. Would highly recommend this villa. We had a fantastic stay.
