Emerald Island Townhome Rental Photos and Description

townhome, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 7

LOOK UP FOR NEW WEEKS AVAILABLE IN JULY! The accommodation is over 1300 square feet. The townhouse offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs and a charming downstairs half bath. There is a queen size bed in the second bedroom and our kids room (Minnie and Mickey mouse) has twin beds.

There is a very spacious open plan living area and clean modern kitchen breakfast bar for sociable mornings! There is a nice covered terrace in the back that overlooks the large community backyard which enables you to keep an eye on the kids when playing outside. There is a balcony upstairs off the master bedroom which also has an ensuite private bathroom.

This townhouse is fully furnished, including all appliances including microwave, refrigerator, range, dishwasher, flat screens TV in every bedrooms and the living room, DVD players, Playstation 3 with movies and games, all linens including towels, beach/pool towels, pillows, bed sheets, and duvets. Also included is all eating and cooking ware. There is a full-size washer and dryer in the laundry room inside the townhouse. We also purchased brand new pack and play baby bassinet, a high chair and an upstair gate to accommodate families with babies and a portable bedrail for the little ones. Dining room table can accommodate 6 persons comfortably. WiFi free to our guests. We have a wireless phone and HD cable tv with HBO’s network. We also provide a Hotel standard, large safe to keep valuables away during your stay. We feature the latest technology in electronic door lock, so no keys to carry just your own personal door code. All you need to pack is your clothes and a toothbrush.

There is a pool 30 feet away, across the street with all services such as changing rooms, bathrooms and Jacuzzi. This pool is a lot quieter than the main pool at the clubhouse. This Villa is located close enough to the amenities for convenience, but far enough away for relaxing quietly on the balcony or a good night's sleep.

Emerald Island Resort is located in the middle of a preservation and has unique dolphins water fountains, dazzling landscaping, lakes and palm trees. Amongst the amenities are nature trails for jogging and biking through the community’s natural woodland setting, volleyball, tennis and basketball courts; playground, two heated pools, Tiki bar, massage, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center, cyber café and arcade. This location has access to fishing at either of our lakes, free of charge or by a nominal fee. Friday is Karaoke Night by the pool; enjoy the music while sipping on a drink.

The location is superb as it is secluded from the hustle and bustle yet being just off the 192W where all the best shops and restaurants are found.

Within a 5 minutes drive you will find several golf courses, miniature golf, supermarket, liquor store and shopping area. Within a 10 minutes drive you will find several restaurants, horseback riding, helicopter rides, as well as the beautiful historic town of Celebration, which is a must see. Only 5 min from Disney, 20 mins from Sea World and 25 mins from Universal and 10 minutes from the Orlando Prime Outlet Mall. This location allows you to take advantage of all that the Orlando area has to offer. The local restaurants range from 'Kid Friendly' to adult dining. Need a day off from all of the excitement? One hour away is the Beach (East coast or West coast). Only one hour on RT4 and you could be at the Hard Rock Casino (Las Vegas style gambling). Make your vacation memorable, visit, enjoy, but most of all be comfortable. The new attraction park LegoLand is located 55 minutes away.

The staff at the Concierge Desk will be happy to help you with your vacation needs, such as information and directions to restaurants and golf courses, discount coupons and park tickets, as well as transportation.

I am confident that you will have a vacation experience that will exceed your expectations.

Our rates are competitive, and reflect the quality of our home. Our home is very clean and well cared for by a small, family-owned management company that takes great pride in their work.

Since my family uses the home frequently, I am looking for guests that will treat my home as their own and return again-and-again.

Keywords: relaxing, serene, quiet, townhome, heaven, Disney, Kissimmee, Emerald.

FLORIDA/DISNEY FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
My family enjoyed our week long stay at this condo. It is a very secure, quiet and well maintained resort. We only spent one day at the resort pool/hot tub. The pool was clean and heated. The main resort pool has a tiki bar with beer and mixed drinks. However you can not bring your own beverages into the main resort pool area. The unit is very close to Disney and I4. Target, grocery stores and many restaurants were within 5 minutes. The condo is well furnished, nicely decorated, and was very clean, however the carpet is showing age. It was nice to have flat screens in every room. It would be nice if laundry soap, dish soap, liquid hand soap for the soap dispensers and tissues were provided. We went to Target to get these supplies. We would stay here again if we returned to the Orlando area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review . We are glad you enjoyed the villa.
We are currently staying at the unit right now and we did clean up the carpet stains left by kid's candies from a previous guest. Our project is to change the carpet in the near future. In the mean time, we keep asking guest to not bring any colored liquid or candies upstairs.
Very nice suggestions regarding the soap for different utilities. We will see what we can do about it with our managing company. We hope to see you again.

The best experience. Townhouse was exceptionally nice with aesthetic appeal that offered a comfortable atmosphere. The owners took care in presenting the townhouse for vacation and relaxation. Very clean and excellently maintained. Location is close to the pool in a neighborhood that is quiet and easily accessed.

GREAT HOME IN AN AMAZING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Orlando with the kids (13, 10 and 6 years old) and Villa Marlena was the perfect place for us to enjoy a Christmas vacation close to Disney and Universal. The home is perfect for families with multiple bathrooms and a central family area. It is located in a very quiet complex with space for the kids to play outside. After long days at the parks, we also had the chance to enjoy the pools and spas located near the house. The proximity to grocery stores, restaurants and more importantly Disney and Universal, allowed us to manage our busy days efficiently. If we come back to Orlando, there is no doubt that we will go back to Villa Marlena

OUR DISNEY FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our stay and accommodations in Florida for our Disney trip was excellent. It was in a very clean, safe and friendly gated community. It only took minutes to get to the Disney park, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping or hospital. It was a home away from home. The directions and important information was supplied to us by the owner. The entire rental processes went smoothly. I would recommend staying here.

GREAT CONDO UNTIL

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. The community is very quiet and well maintained. It was extremely convenient to Disney and I4. The grocery store and many restaurants were within 5 minutes. The condo is well furnished, nicely decorated, and was very clean. It was nice to have flat screens in every room so you could have a break from each other after being at the parks all day. The DVD player is part of the playstation setup in the main living room. It would be nice to have a separate DVD player in one of the kid's rooms so they could watch movies if the adults were in the living room. It did get a little warm upstairs with the thermostat on the coolest level allowed by the owners. It would be nice if there were ceiling fans to help circulate the air in the bedrooms. We would stay here again if we returned to the Orlando area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We used to have a dvd in the kids bedroom but a guest broke it a few months ago. We are planning to replace it by Christmas.

We are also planning to install some ceiling fans next time we go down to Orlando. That would help during warmer outside temperatures. Again thank you very much for being our guest and hope to see you next time.
