Our beautiful seven bedroom / six bathroom home is situated in the exclusive “Enclave” section of Emerald Island, a gated resort community which is within 5 minutes' drive of Disney World.

The house leads onto a shaded lanai with tables and chairs. Beyond is a screened deck area with a heated south facing 30 foot pool and spa with sun loungers, overlooking a lake and a wooded conservation area. There are alarms on all doors leading to the pool and a child safety fence can be erected if preferred.

About Gareth Jones

We are Gareth and Cathie. We first visited Florida with our children in 1997 and have been coming back ever since. What do we love about the Orlando area? The sunshine, the scenery, the theme parks for the children and the opportunity to relax by playing tennis and golf, swimming and visiting beautiful beaches and national parks. Nowhere helps us unwind like Florida.

Gareth Jones purchased this house in 2004

Why Gareth Jones chose Disney / Orlando

We stayed in a number of different communities in the Orlando area before we decided to buy a house in Central Florida. When we first visited Emerald Island, we knew immediately that this was the resort for us. We set our sights on buying a house with a south facing pool area overlooking one of the lakes. We couldn't believe our luck when Casa Esmeralda became available. Not only was it our dream house, it was also in the perfect location.

What makes this house unique

The peace and quiet and the best possible view from the pool area.

Our family enjoyed our stay here. There was enough room for us to sleep & relax comfortably. Management was efficient and quick responding as well. Most definitely a good vacation home for large families.

Great place/Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 4 nights for our annual golf trip. The location was perfect for us as it was central to many of the preferred courses in the area. Also very convenient to Rte. 192 and many restaurants, stores etc. The house was in great shape - clean and well furnished and equipped. We have been doing this trip every January for 15 years and this is by far the best place we have stayed. My interaction with the owner was also excellent as he was very responsive and helpful with all my questions. I plan on this being our new standard for our annual trip.

Absolutely Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect home for our Thanksgiving vacation with friends. We had plenty of room for the 6 adults and 6 children in our party. The home was spotless, and included everything we needed for an amazing vacation, and then some. Perfect location to go to and from the various Disney parks with ease, and wonderful amenities at the home for our down time. Thanksgiving was perfect with the children swimming, football on the TV, and a turkey in the oven. Highly recommend this home for your family vacation!
