If you are planning a trip to the Disney area, why not make it a first-class vacation and enjoy the benefits and elegance of staying at our newly built, luxury, four-bedroom villa for less than you will spend in a small hotel. This family-owned, spacious, four-bedroom, three full bath, air-conditioned villa with a private, south-facing, heated and screened pool and spa provide everything that your family could need to have a memorable and fun stay in the Disney area.
As many of our guests have said, this is the perfect place for you and your family to enjoy all that the area offers and still offer you a quiet and comfortable setting to relax each evening. Imagine relaxing in the heated spa while you are watching the kids enjoy a swim and hopefully working off some of their energy. Perhaps you will enjoy the Game Room that includes a slate Pool Table, Foosball, and Card table for Poker, Texas Hold'em or childrens board games.
This villa is located in prestigious Emerald Island. This is a gated community which is perfectly located less than four miles from Disney and is also very convenient to many other attractions that this exciting area has to offer. It is one of the most-sought-after resorts with every possible amenity available in an exclusive gated community. There is no other resort community that is any closer to Disney. In fact, the kids will feel like they are practically staying in Mickey's backyard. The Emerald Island Clubhouse is a vibrant center of activity for the community. As a guest of our villa, you have free access to all of these activities.
It will not take you long to feel the comforts of home in our custom designed and furnished villa. The family room offers you the opportunity to relax and take in a good movie on the DVD/VCR player. The kids can even enjoy some of their favorite music on the AM/FM CD player. For those that enjoy video games, we offer a Playstation2 game console that will entertain kids of all ages. The formal living room and dining room provide you with additional space that allow our guests to have more room than they will need.
If you are like us, you will soon discover after a busy day at the parks, there is nothing better than relaxing with the family at your very own private heated pool and spa. The pool also serves as a wonderful setting to enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper by the pool before the kids appear for their morning pancakes. The pool area comes complete with table and four chairs plus two lounge chairs for complete relaxation in the sun.
The villa will accommodate up to ten people comfortably. The two master suites are exquisitely furnished with your comfort in mind. They offer one king-size and one queen-size bed, private full bath, cable TV, and enormous closet space for plenty of storage. One of the master suites overlooks the pool area. There are two additional bedrooms that offer two twin beds and are decorated in a way that will please any child. Finally, there is a queen-size sleeper sofa in the family room to provide even more flexibility for your sleeping arrangements.
The fully-equipped kitchen is open to the family room so that everyone is included in the conversation and activities. The kitchen offers all appliances including full-size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, range/oven, garbage disposal, and coffee maker. For your added convenience, our villa does offer a washer/dryer, iron, and ironing board.
Just minutes from Disney and other Orlando attractions. The Kennedy Space Center and beaches are just one hour away. Convenient to restaurants and shopping for any of your needs. So, why not enjoy the magic of Disney and the elegance of our villa and be our guests. It will be a vacation your family will cherish and memories made that will last forever.
Emerald Island Resort is a beautiful and well-designed resort. It's close proximity to Disney World and all the other attractions that are in this area along with the gorgeous Palm tree lined entrance to the gatehouse, the clubhouse, landscaping, nature preserve, manicured lawns, and the lovely homes are some of the reasons we bought our home there. On our recent stay there I realized we had an additional bonus. As I walked out the front door one night I could see the fireworks at Disney. My wife and I love this place and are confident your family will love it too.
We rented your house in Emerald Island Feb 23, 2007 for 9 nights - it was so nice to come back to a spacious house after spending time at the busy parks. We loved the game room and played pool every night. The hot tub and pool were great although we would have liked the hot tub a little warmer - oh well, it was still totally relaxing! We will definitely be back hopefully next year. Actually the drive to the parks wasn't too bad either. . .thanks again for the wonderful memories!
The home was exactly as described and in wonderful condition. The location was super easy to get to and from the airport as well as all other attractions in the area. Dennis was also great at communicating and making sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
Without hesitation I would recommend this villa for your getaway!
We stayed at this villa in Emerald Island in July/August and really can’t fault it. It’s a great location, really safe with security on the gate 24/7 and the added bonus of a club house, communal pool and bar, it was great being able to go for a drink in the evening, while the kids went for a swim and not having to drive. The villa itself is lovely, much more spacious than it looks on the website, everything you need and really well maintained. The kids loved the pool table in the games room and the private pool. We are a family of four, so never used one of the bedrooms, the en-suite in the master bedroom is huge and there were two widescreen TVs in two different living areas, so everyone was kept happy. We used Walmart for our main shopping and Publix for day to day items as it was really close. For eating out, we enjoyed Outhouse Steakhouse and Red Lobster and the burgers at Buffalo Wild Wings were great – our younger son still talks about them! We won’t be back for a couple of years, unfortunately, but when we are, we would happily stay here again without even looking anywhere else.
Thank you so much for our stay at your vacation home. Our son participates in Track and Field for AAU. Your house was the perfect place to relax and prepare for the daily track meets at Disney.
Both my wife and I have backgrounds as professional chefs and having a real kitchen to work from while on vacation was a joy.
As an IT manager who has to deal with web security and fraud issues, I want to thank you for being one of the few legitimate people to deal with in terms of money! Your house is everything you advertise and your handling of my credit card information has been professional and expediant.
For those who read the comments....this is the one to get!

What a lovely home this is. We particularly enjoyed having a pool to relax in every day. It was nice and quiet and immaculate. We cooked with ease with a fully equipped kitchen. We also ate at the local Giordano's restaurant which was located right at Formosa Gardens.
We went to nearby MGM studios and enjoyed the Clubhouse for our wireless internet. I enjoyed the two dining areas as well as the large counter set up for impromptu snacks.
The beds were very comfortable;and so was the well appointed sofas.Our family looks forward to leasing another one Of Dennis & Arlene's home or condo in the future.

A ***** five star home!!! Donna Arcuri
In Feb. 2006 We rented this beautiful fully furnished and equipped house in a new gated community that is in disney's backyard. Everyone loved the game room and the large heated pool / jacuzzi after a long day in the parks.
This was our second time we stayed at emerald island. Why be cramped in small disney hotel rooms when you can have a new 4 bedroom house with your own private pool for less than the price of one hotel room?
MAKE SURE TO TAKE THE GREAT BACK WAY INTO DISNEY TO AVOID THE TRAFFIC. Leaving the house, turn rt on 192, then left at lite on Sherberth. Turn right at lite onto Oscela Pkwy & follow signs to Disney. Coming back, follow signs to Animal Kingdom LODGE and turn left onto Sherberth. Visit google maps and enter zip code for house for detailed maps.
The shopping center on the corner of Formosa Garden and 192 (near house) has every store you will need.

Water Parks - go early because parks get very crowded by 10:30 am and chairs are hard to find.
