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

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.

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

Our spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5
The home is very pretty and the pool area overlooks a creek and lots of trees.
We had very young children in our party and having an entrance to the bathroom area from the pool was a Godsend
The home is spacious and had a den area with its own tv and sitting space. My son in law especially liked this to catch up on business calls.
This resort is just off I92 which is where all the fun stuff is. It is moments from Disney. After a hard day of shopping or visiting Mickey the children would get a last swim in before bedtime. The adults enjoyed the spa when quiet descended.
We never felt crowded. There was room for all. We were met by the management person when we arrived which was a nice touch. We had asked for pool heat and he helped make it perfect.

Fabulous home!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Esmeralda April 13-20, 2013. We brought 3 of our grandchildren, twin girls almost 3 and another granddaughter age 4, along with the other 2 sets of grandparents. This house gave everyone the space they needed and was truly beautiful. It was immaculate, well maintained and had a very large kitchen and beautiful pool and spa. We were able to be at any of the theme parks within 10 minutes. Honestly, just cannot say enough good things about this house and the neighborhood. It is in a beautiful gated community that is close to shopping, restaurants, etc. It is a perfect house for a large family vacation. We would definitely place this house as our top choice for a place to stay when going to Disney!

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Gareth,

We had the pleasure of staying in your beautiful home and it was an experience we will always treasure! Casa Esmeralda fit all of our needs perfectly!! I was so very pleased to find the home just as it had been described in the listing and appreciated your prompt, friendly answers to all of my questions.

The unique layout of the open floor plan of the main floor affords plenty of space without feeling cutoff. The unique 2nd level floor plan allows for quiet privacy. We loved the way the stairway split the upper level into two sections! Despite being 14 of us (with 5 of those being children aged 3-10) we had more than ample room to spread out, do our own thing and be comfortable as well!

Having a large group made the number of bathrooms offered in your home a major plus for us. The kids made good use of the game room as well as the den upstairs for playing their video games and we all loved the pool and spa and used it every day!! The conservation view from the lanai/pool only added to the already relaxing atmosphere . The beds were all quite comfortable and the entire home very clean. One thing I really appreciated was the two air conditioning units. They kept the home cool and comfortable even when it was hot & humid outside and we were cooking!

We came down for Disney but ended up spending over half our time at the house because we were just so content at the house. Emerald Island Resort with its friendly, guarded front gate and helpful office staff offers too many features to list here and is beautiful, peaceful and well-kept. At your home, we were close to everything we could want or need- Disney World, grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations or gift shops. Anyone looking to rent a home that is clean, comfortable, peaceful, spacious, beautiful, unique and relaxing needs to stay at Casa Esmeralda!

Thank you for an amazing and relaxing vacation home!
Kim

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for allowing us to rent your home in Florida! Your home was beautiful, spacious and clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The desciption of the home matches how it is in real-life. We enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool. The home was extremely comfortable for sitting and gathering with friends. We used the large kitchen for most of our meals and had plenty of room for cooking and eating in the dining room and kitchen. There was also a family room upstairs in the loft. The home is in an area that has a community pool, exercise room, and poolside bar. The area was beautiful. My friends and I spent our time at Epcot and Universal Studios which were close to the house. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend staying here to our family and friends, and would love to return some day! Great customer service too! Gareth was quick to respond to all of my questions. He sent me all of the information that I needed prior to our visit. Everything about our stay was perfect! - Patti, Amy, Christi, Karen, Mark, Mike and Steve

Hello Gareth. We wanted you to know what a wonderful time we had at Casa Esmeralda. The house accommodated all 15 of us comfortably. We especially enjoyed the sparkling clean pool and spa. The location was convenient to everything we wanted to do and we appreciated the security of the gated community. We are already planning our next trip!
