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.

Within 5 minutes drive of all of the amenities of Kissimmee and a very quiet gated community. Would happily recommend as a base for any size of family as the villa has everything you will need for a comfortable duration of your stay.

The Villa itself was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The villa had everything needed for a great vacation. Outside the pool and surrounding areas were very nice. It is located just off the 192 in Emerald Isle which is a very nice, well kept quiet resort and is securely gated. The location is perfect if you are visiting the theme parks and there are plenty of good restaurants on the 192 just a short drive away. Restaurants we particularly liked were Texas Road House, Olive Garden and The Outback,. If like us you start to tire of the portion sizes especially at lunchtime try Panera Bread on the 192 where you can get a smaller portion. There is also a large Publix supermarket close by where you can get everything you need. During our stay we had an unforgettable night when Hurricane Irma paid a visit. There had been tornado warnings for the general area so spent the night sleeping on a single bed mattress in the hallway away from any windows. Donna the owner was a pleasure to deal with, promptly replying and providing tips on what to do and where to go and advice before the Hurricane. Donna also kindly agreed that if our flight back got delayed we could extend our stay if needed. We would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa. Tom
