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.
I am the father of 7 and grandfather of 8 with 1 on the way. Disney trips started in 1976 and continue to this day. It's hard to find a [vacation place with more options than the Orlando area.
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 location is almost perfect at 4 miles from Disney and the landscaping outstanding. The house provides everything imaginable to have a great vacation experience.
