Why Terry Puffer chose Emerald Island
Emerald Island Resort was built for the Disney guest. After recovering nicely from their early years of growing pains, Emerald Island Resort is central Florida's premier destination. This is a gated and guarded community with night patrols throughout the resort. Recent improvements such as concierge trash and recycle service have made Emerald Island Resort an outstanding resort community.
What makes this house unique
1. Game Room-- published that our game room was one of ten top vacation home amenities in the US. Since that award, we have added a Simpson's Pinball and a Shuffle Alley. Our Arcade machine plays over 1000 games, our driving game that races around Alcatraz, our Shuffle Alley, and our Simpsons Pinball are all set to FREE PLAY. A Wii with game library, billiards, and a pop-a-shot basketball round out our game room.
2. Pool and Spa with dual heating of solar and over-sized heat pump
3. Comfortable beds--memory foam in each and every bed to make for comfy sleeping

Guestbook comments from the owner
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!!
