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.

The villa was lovely-and just as described and shown in the photos. It had everything we needed, and there was a supermarket near by so we could stock up on provisions. The kids loved the pool and Jacuzzi and sometimes it was hard to get them out of there to go to the theme parks! The house really did feel like a home from home and the location of Emerald Island is great. You are nearest to Disney, literally a few minutes away, then a bit further on Universal & Islands of Adventure. We liked being out all day at the parks, then stopping off for something to eat on the way home on International Drive or one of the many restaurants off the 192. The owner was very helpful with advice on things to do and see there and made us feel very welcome. If we were to go back to Florida in a large group, I would definitely like to rent this villa again- it gave us a fabulous holiday with great memories.
