Emerald Island House Rental Photos and Description
6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bath (Master Down) - Conservation View (Sleeps 16)
Amazing six bedroom, three and one-half bath home is perfect for the one with discriminating taste. This non-smoking, pet free home is under new ownership and no expense was spared with the renovations made. It was repainted inside and out with designer colors and made to look like a model home. Florida’s tropical foliage and beautiful flowers bursting with color was the theme for decorating. Nicely appointed artwork, tapestry, silk plants, and a conservation view give it a true Florida flora and fauna feel, thus the reason this vacation home is lovingly referred to as
“The Greenhouse.” Arched window shelves hold plants and colorful glass art work which adds to the ambiance of this wonderful two story home.
The eat-in kitchen comes fully equipped and has unobstructed views into the dining/living area and patio/pool area with its open plan. Large ceramic tile flooring is in all the areas downstairs (except master bedroom). The dining/living area is awesome with the majestic two story cathedral ceilings and high arched windows. The master bedroom (with a king bed) is downstairs and has a spacious walk-in closet. A garden tub and separate shower are featured in the master bathroom. Also downstairs is a half bath with a pedestal sink and right next to it is a separate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.
One of the two stairwells leads you to a secondary private bedroom suite with its very own bathroom and walk-in closet. The other stairwell takes you up to four additional spacious bedrooms. All bedrooms throughout the home have a flat screen TV.
The highly sought after south facing pool, spa, and patio area look brand new! Enjoy splashing around in the crystal clear water whereby the pool and spa were resurfaced with a beautiful beach colored mini pebble finish. Or just sit under the covered patio/lanai, viewing the pool/spa, lush conservation and wildlife all found in your backyard.
The garage was also newly painted and the floor now has a beautiful speckled epoxy finish. This now makes for a nice game room area which includes a pool table.

About Neill Jackson
We bought this home as a second home and enjoy the warm weather of Florida compared to that of our Ontario Canada home.
Neill Jackson purchased this house in 2012
Why Neill Jackson chose Emerald Island
Loved the floorplan. There are only a couple homes this style in Emerald Island Resort and we were fortunate to find this one. We looked hard to find a home that backed up to a natural conservation setting, where the view can't be beat; but still close to all the theme parks, dining, shopping, etc.
What makes this house unique
The high arched windows in the living/dining areas make it a very bright home. Two master suites make it nice for couples wanting their own private bathroom. It is a very short walk to the Clubhouse and community pool, tiki bar, work out room. Everything is right around the corner from Emerald Island: grocery store, restaurants, shopping, golf courses, theme parks, etc. The covered/screened patio with the southern pool/spa exposure makes it nice for sunbathers. Plus overlooking the conservation is simply an added benefit.
