Emerald Island Resort was built for the Disney guest. Emerald Island Resort is central Florida's premier vacation home destination. This is a gated and guarded community with night patrols throughout the resort. Recent improvements such as valet trash and recycle service, RF entrance cards, and enhanced security have made Emerald Island Resort one of the safest and most guest-friendly resort communities in the area.

I wanted to thank you again for sharing your home with us this past week. It was without a doubt our best vacation ever!! The kids are already asking when we can go back to our Florida house. I think your house has ruined me from ever staying in a hotel for an extended vacation. If you don’t go to a theme park everyday, I don’t know how families keep from driving one another nuts in a hotel room all day. I am not sure what the kids enjoyed more the pool, the game room or the Ps2 (my son has informed me that he would like one for Christmas) but whatever it was it was enough of a diversion that the adults were able to sit in the hot tub or watch tv in peace and quiet. You truly have thought of everything when you open this house up to families like mine. So, thank you. I am glad that when we were looking for places to stay we found your website. With all that said, I was wondering if you had started booking for 2008? We are planning on coming back to Florida for Presidents week in February. I received an email today for the [security] deposit [refund], thank you that was extremely fast!! Well back to reality tomorrow. Thanks for a great vacation!!
If you are looking for the perfect spot to take your kids, grandkids for vacacions, look no farther. This home is like a Dreams come true. The owner has given every thought to detail in this home. The game room is out of this world. Every room has something for children to either play with or entertain themselves. It's the only vacation where my grandsons haven't said " I'm bored".
The pool is warm and clean. The entire house is immaculate. Neighborhood is quiet and well kept. Pool has privacy . I could go on and on.
Thank you Puff for making our vacation a dream! We will be back.

Everything about the house was top notch. Great game room, fabulous TV, fun pool and much more. Mattress is master bedroom was very comfortable.
This was our second stay in 3 years. Someone reserved before us last year otherwise it would have been 3 out of 3 years; hence we have already booked 2015!
Staying at a different house last year made us appreciate Tropical Retreat even more this year. The attention to detail and level of comfort set this house way above the rest. Everything is labeled with great detail to make the home as user friendly as possible. The Game room is a tremendous plus as it adds to the whole experience for kids and adults. The pool and hot tub are always clean and ready and nothing beats a relaxing hot tub after a long day.
Can't say enough good things and look forward to staying again in 2015.
The house is beautiful, it's clean and well kept and easy to find and to get back and forth from. It's in a gated community so it feels safe and it's comfortable. There are tons of extra blankets, pillows, and towels. But the best part was really Terry, you can tell he takes this seriously, he should be working for Disney or something, from start to finish he communicated with us VERY thoroughly. He put together a little packet for the trip explaining what's near and what's the best way to get places and little crowd calenders and just everything you could think of. I just can't say enough about renting this house, I've been to Disney/Universal a couple times and I always like to try something new and this was the best new find of our last trip and this is where we stay now in Orlando. Thanks Terry!
We took a family vacation back in 2011. We stayed in The tropical retreat and it was wonderful. My kids aged 5and 7 at the time did not want to leave the house. The home was very welcoming and it had everything that one needs to feel at home. The game room was great! The community in which this home is located is very safe and welcoming. We had to come back and I would recommend this home to anyone who is taking a vacation to Florida. Can't wait for our third trip to this amazing home!
First off hats off to Terry! He was so helpful with our Disney vacation and communicated with me very well on all other matters. Next the house. What can I say but WOW! The house was very clean and relaxing. The pool and spa were refreshing the entire week. The Weber grill was nice also. Last but not least the game room was AWESOME. My children, me and my father in-law spent a ton of time in there! Very close to all the parks and everything else you will need on your vacation. Thanks again Terry for making our very first Disney vacation a magical one!!
