Emerald Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedroom DisneyWorld Rental House 3 miles from Disney's Animal Kingdom

**All open nights up to December 19, 2014 are only $99 per night.**

Go to http://www.disneyhouserental.com/availability.htm and enter your reservation.

The Diamond on the Island is a home built and furnished for the traveler who demands the highest standards. It is located in the exclusive gated resort of Emerald Island which is only 3 miles from Walt Disney World. Two stop signs and two traffic lights separate you from the Disney property.

Your magical vacation starts when you see the dramatic palm tree lined entrance with the beautiful foliage leading up to the security gates. Following that, you see the dolphin fountain and the very popular Clubhouse. Then as you meander down the street past the preserved park area, you begin to understand you are in a different world.

The owners of this splendid home took every opportunity to give you and your guests the ultimate vacation luxury in your temporary home away from home. The entire house is decorated in an elegant manner with upscale furnishing providing a warm and homey atmosphere for you to enjoy.

As you enter the house, you are presented with an absolutely beautiful Conversational burgundy sofa and 46 inch square Balustrade cocktail table in the cozy living room. The floor here and throughout all downstairs rooms except the master bedroom is tiled that allows you and your guests to relax. A few steps in and you are at the elegant dining room with its Grande Balustrade Double Pedestal Dining Table and six Marietta Black Pepper upholstered chairs. In addition, the grand foyer console with marble top table provides just the right piece for the hallway going into the kitchen and family room.

As you enter the kitchen and family room area, you are overcome by the vaulted ceiling in the family room with its 18 feet long ceiling to floor drapes professionally made with the beautiful Waverly butterfly fabric and the 8 feet wide glass doors out to the pool deck from both the kitchen and the family room. The two full size couches covered with comfortable microfiber cocoa fabric facing the 40 inch HDTV invite you to relax on their reclining end seats with your drinks kept on the optional pull-down center tables. The fully stocked Kitchen invites you to skip the fuss of going to restaurants and enjoy the pool and house.

You may want go out the door to the Lanai and spend some time soaking up the Florida sun. The covered 10 foot pool deck has ceiling speakers so you can enjoy music from the stereo on the Family Room Entertainment center without disrupting those inside.

You could then step into the 15 x 30 foot crystal clear water of the heated pool or really relax in the 100 degree Jacuzzi® or you can just lie back on one of our comfortable loungers. The pool and lanai are south facing which give you sun all day long. Of course you can stay under the covered deck if you already had enough sun. The pool has an easily removable safety fence providing extra protection for young children.

Sleeping accommodations at the Diamond on the Island are exceptional. The Cabrillo Wood Panel Bed, the Chaparral Sleigh Leather Headboard Bed and the two Montecito Iron Beds are fitted with high quality bedding sets that make sleeping a true pleasure. The Antiquity Low Post Panel Beds in the twin bedrooms offer maximum comfort for busy children. All bedrooms have Sony Trinitron TVs varying from 24 inches for the first floor master bedroom to 20 inch TVs in the three second floor master bedrooms to 13 inch TVs in the twin bedrooms.

About John Beck

I am the father of 7 and grandfather of 9. Disney trips started in 1976 and continue to this day. It's hard to find a vacation place with more vacation options than the Orlando area.

John Beck purchased this villa in 2004

Why John Beck chose Emerald Island

We saw this development being built in 2000 and decided this was the ideal place to own a short-term rental house our children and grandchildren could use while renting it out in between.

The Financial Crisis of 2007-8 brought much grief to this community. As Treasurer and President of the Homeowner’s Association, I was able to keep the association’s cash flow at a healthy level and thereby preserved the vital landscaping services.

What makes this villa unique

The location is almost perfect at 3 miles from Disney and the landscaping is outstanding. Some say the landscaping is like an extension of the Disney landscaping. The house provides everything imaginable to have a great vacation experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was awesome. I would never again rent a hotel room. The house was spacious, the pool, jacuzzi and lanai area was wonderful. It was close to the major attractions. The Emerald Garden Resort was beautiful and clean and safe. John was great to work with. I have already recommended John's house to friends!

The Diamond on the Island is truly a "Gem"

The Diamond on the Island is truly a "Gem"
  • 5 of 5
The house was spacious and perfect for our group of 10 (7 adults and 3 children.) None of us ever felt crowded or were in each other's way. Not having been in this area for quite sometime, a lot has changed at the Theme Parks. We wanted to experience everything so we spent 2 days in Universal and 6 days at the WDW parks. Needless to say, we were exhausted every night. Coming back to the house and being able to use the pool and spa was like a slice of heaven! The body and feet were rejuvenated :)

This gem of a house is in a great location. There was no shortage of markets or restaurants to choose from. I only wished we could have tried them all. Everything was close by. We didn't even need to fill up the tank until it was time to return our rental back at MCO.

John was extremely helpful and thoughtful. If I had any questions, he was readily available to answer them either by phone or e-mail. He even contacted me the day before I left home and expressed his concern as we were flying down to FL right about the time Tropical Storm Isaac was approaching the Keys.

I would recommend this house to families that have a large group. I will definitely rent this house again as I plan on returning to FL in 2+ years.

Excellent for our extended family

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house back in June, The house is as described and great for our extended family of 10. We were able to uss the pool in the afternoons when we needed a break from Disney and hot florida sun. We had a small non-locking door issue which was promptly looked into.
John was very helpful and prompt in all his email communications. We wanted to extended our stay for a day at the last minute and he was very gracious about it.
Overall, the house made the difference between a good vacation and a great vacation.

Gorgeous and big

  • 4 of 5
I loved the house. The house was big and beautiful. Clean as well. The pool is nice especially if you have children. But There was a lot of rules you had to go by in the gated community that the house is in that bothered me. Quiet time from 11 to 7 or police called. You have to park on a curtain side each month if not you will get a ticket. No more than 6 cars on the property. And if the community personnel find a problem they will deactivate your card key to get in the community and have to go through the visitor side. Owner is understanding and nice.

Tranquil

  • 4 of 5
We were delighted as to how great John was to work with. He understood our needs and was great. John sent us useful emails prior to our trip. You would have thought you stayed in a 4 Star Hotel that he called shortly after our arrival to check on us and offer tips for dining. This was great for the 9 people traveling on vacation with us. What a great destination house! Close to Disney which made it perfect.

Great rental home for Disney area!

  • 5 of 5
The home was just as described and perfect for our dual family trip to Disney. Everyone slept comfortably in their own rooms/beds and there were no lines for the showers in the morning since there were plenty of bathrooms. The home was close enough to the parks and shopping but far enough from the main road so that we had peace and quiet in the house. Owner was attentative and helpful. A great family vacation to Disney. Would definitely rent again!

All bedrooms as well as the family room have ceiling fans to provide the ultimate comfort. For those who need help in waking, each room has a clock radio.

And for the person who must do some work, the Loft has a beautiful credenza/hutch combination and a very comfortable chair where any desk work with the provided computer can be done. Or you can use your laptop with the wireless Internet access.

Last but not least is the security system that monitors and controls many different actions. If any first floor door or window is opened, a gentle chime is played to alert you. When it's dark and you walk in the front door, the Foyer light comes on for a few minutes. Kitchen and Lanai lights also come on automatically as you enter them. The lights on the garage exterior come on after dark and stay on for a couple of hours to assist you in locating your home away from home. Several other things are monitored and if any threat occurs, an alarm is sounded and the owner is notified.

The house and all of its guests are securely protected against most types of problems.

The exquisite Emerald Island Resort Clubhouse of 4,000 square feet has a heated pool and spa, fitness room, sauna, Tiki bar, gathering room, computers with free unlimited Internet access and Video game room. Outside of the clubhouse are a playground and a volleyball court. Tennis and basketball courts are nearby on the Emerald Island Resort property. Across the street from the clubhouse is the entrance to a walking trail that winds through the resort's natural woodland setting in the center of the island.
