Our vacation home is just 3 miles from Disney World, within an exclusive, secure, and gated community.
Nestled on a private, south-facing plot, in the exclusive Emerald Island location, less than 3.5 miles from Disney World in Kissimmee, Florida. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the property accommodates up to 10 guests and is perfect for family groups with kids.
The spacious family room has a luxurious over-stuffed sofa, love seat, comfortable furnishings and a large screen cable TV. Also included is a VCR and DVD player, so you can watch your favorite movies together when you stay. Alternatively, there is a CD player if you prefer to unwind to music.
The family room provides access on to the lanai and extended pool deck. Cushioned loungers, chairs and a table are provided to allow you to relax next to the sparkling clear, optionally heated pool and soak up the day-long Florida climate.
Just A Few More Notes: Our No Smoking property is fully air conditioned and as an added benefit we have utilized the large garage as a games room with Air Hockey, Table Football, Electronic Darts and Table Tennis.
We have recently introduced a brand new feature 'FREECALL', which allows guests to make free domestic and international phone calls, so you can keep in touch with family and friends back home without having to worry about the charges. WE ALSO HAVE FREE HIGHSPEED WIFI (BYO LAPTOP)
The kitchen has been fully equipped with everything that you could need to prepare a quick snack, or a fabulous family feast to enjoy together.
For added enjoyment, the garage has been converted into a games room with Air Hockey, Table Football, Electronic Darts and Table Tennis. A Playstation 2, with a selection of games, is located in the family room.

What a fantastic villa. Everything anyone could want. We have felt so at home, the villa has all the facilities you need. The pool was so warm and clean, we had many hours relaxing and soaking up the rays then taking a dip in the pool. All the rooms were perfect, clean, tidy and spacious for all the family. Fantastic location for all the parks. This is the best villa we have stayed in by far. We would highly recommend.
This lovely home is fantastic. You will be so happy when you walk in. The photos are great, however, it is even lovelier in person. It is indeed 3 miles from disney. It is near wonderful restaurants. It is a secure and gated Community. It is very upscale. The pool was not only clean, it looked brand new. The furnishings are new and the appliances are spotless.
I highly, highly recommend it!
We decided to take are children and there children on a family vacation while planning we decided with the grand babies a hotel would be to close in for them so we went with home away from home. This was a very pleasant experience we felt safe in this gated community the home we were in was very well maintained and we had everything we need it felt like home we would recommended this to anyone we already have friends asking us about it.
The description of the house is just as you see in the photos. The property is clean and well maintained. It's very comfortable and at a short distance from the parks.
We stayed for xmas and new year with our extended family, the villa was an excellent place to relax, just perfect. Good travelling distance to all parks and shopping malls. Gated and very well maintained. No problems thoroughly recomend.
Spent 16 nights in this lovely villa. Its brilliantly located on Emerald Island and is not directly backed onto by other villas, giving a pleasant outlook from the pool area which is also nicely screened by plants. Master Bedroom ensuite has a door directly to pool area which is really handy for showering off when finished in pool.
We found the pictures of the pool gave us the impression that it was quite small, but as there was no hot tub, the pool was in fact bigger than some others on the complex that do have a hot tub. Nice open spacious living/dining/kitchen area. Some interesting wildlife visited us during our stay! (Whooping crane, Racoon, lizards, mini frogs and an Armadillo living next door but never caught sight of him!). Two small family's could stay here comfortably, but as one small family of 3, we found it perfect rather than a hotel or apartment stay any day. Close to Formosa gardens & easy access to all the eateries on the 192. 5mins from Sherberth Road shortcut to Disney area.
We've just returned from a fabulous stay at this villa.
This villa is the best we'd stayed in for two reasons - first, the close location to Disney itself (so easy to get to) and second, because it was a private rental it felt nicer to be in.
The location is excellent for Disney - we could be at Hollywood Studios within 20 minutes! It's also easy to reach SeaWorld and Universal - access to the I4 is close.
The property is well equipped and spacious. As it's a private rental (not via a brochure) it has the extra touches such as the games room, books to read and plenty of coat hangers! These are small things but make a difference!
We loved the pool and wish we'd spent more time in there. We did have it heated but didn't need to as it was very warm.
Emerald Island is beautiful estate - the nicest one we've ever stayed in. When we go back, it will be here! The security was very good and the estate is immaculate. It really is lovely.
Communications with the owner were very helpful and they provided me with all information I asked for.
The supermarket is pricey but a short drive from the villa (on the way to Disney!). Publix is perhaps cheaper and only a 10 minute drive.
We love Disney so had a flexible ticket allowing us to park hop as and when we wanted. This was brilliant. You can book fast passes on your smart phone and even alter them inside the park.
We do wish we'd have done less (i.e. maybe not SeaWorld) and relaxed more. It was very hot when we were there and it's difficult for the children to cope with the heat and lots of walking.
When you go to Florida it's tempting to fit everything in.
This is our 5th visit to Orlando and we've stayed in villas and the Disney resort. The villa was so relaxing and quite, but still close to Disney.
Emerald Island is discreetly located within a conservation area comprising woodlands and over 300 Acres of wetland. This gated enclave provides security and exclusivity whilst just minutes from the hub of activity along the US192.
The palm lined road leading to a colonnaded gateway, where you will be greeted by the resort concierge, are just the prelude to the splendor that is Emerald Island.
Once inside the resort, the elegance and tranquility are self evident with the picturesque fountain of playful Dolphins.
The magnificent club house sits within manicured gardens aside the lake.
The Club House accommodates the resort guest services where you will be able to book attraction tickets or simply pick up a map if you prefer to go it alone.
Within the grounds of the Clubhouse is a children's Play area and a volley ball court.
In the clubhouse itself there is an equipped gymnasium, and sauna.
We also have a Cyber Cafe with Internet access.
