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.

Villa big enough to give 5 adults and 2 children their own space . Very well equipped in lovely area 15 min drive to nearest Disney park so glad chose a villa rather than hotel was great returning from parks using pool in comfort would Def use the villa again . Had no problems at all directions very clear from airport . Great holiday .

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.
