This beautiful villa offers a comfortable living space, fully equipped kitchen, and two rear yard decks overlooking beautiful conservation land. Offering 3 bedrooms and 1,300 square feet on two floors this home creates the perfect environment to relax after a busy day at the nearby theme parks, or a day at one of the resorts two pools.

FIRST FLOOR

The first floor boasts an expansive open floor plan with a comfortable living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, a half bath, a full laundry room, and an outdoor deck.

The living room includes a couch and loveseat with a 37” flat screen TV and over 100 cable channels. There is also a DVD and Blu-ray player. Wi-Fi is available throughout the villa.

The kitchen offers everything you need whether you are preparing a gourmet dinner or just cooking up some macaroni and cheese for the little ones. Standard appliances include: refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, stove and oven, blender, and toaster. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the dining area. Meals can be eaten at the breakfast bar which has two stools or the large dining table which comfortably seats six.

Pack lightly as the laundry room allows you to conveniently wash and dry your clothes without leaving the home. There is also a half bath on the first floor. You can find a diagram of the floor plan in the photos section.

SECOND FLOOR

The second floor offers three bedrooms and two full baths. There is a master suite featuring a queen bed with a new mattress (2013), 27” flat screen cable TV and Blu-ray player, and plenty of storage space in the dresser or large closet. There is a luggage rack provided in case you prefer to keep your clothes in your luggage. The master suite has its own connecting bath, as well as a south facing balcony with views of Florida conservation land.

The second bedroom is a pleasant 144 square feet with a comfortable queen bed with new mattress (2013), a 19” flat screen cable TV and DVD player. Storage includes a large closet and armoire for additional storage.

The guest bedroom sleeps two in separate twin beds. Storage includes a dresser and ample closet space. There is a 19” cable TV.

Most guests spend plenty of time at the resorts two pools. We provide up to 8 pool towels. There are typically pool games and other pool odds and ends in the laundry room. Enjoy what’s there and feel free to leave behind anything you don’t want to travel with to add to the collection.

There are plenty of fresh linens for all guests, and at least two sets of clean, crisp sheets for each bed. Extra blankets and pillows can generally be found in the closets.

LOCATION

You cannot stay in a townhouse in a gated community closer to Disney than Emerald Island Resort. The Resort boasts exquisitely manicured grounds and ample amenities.

Choose from two large, outdoor, heated swimming pools, both with relaxing whirlpool spas. The pools include outdoor showers as well as changing areas and restrooms. The clubhouse pool has an enjoyable Tiki bar offering refreshing drinks, and hot and cold snacks. Other outdoor activities include a nature trail through the heart of Emerald Island, sand volleyball court, tennis courts, basketball hoops, and several playgrounds.

Inside the clubhouse you will find the Resort concierge that can help you with anything from directions, to tickets, to helpful recommendations about the area. There is a nice air conditioned lounge in the clubhouse with tables and chairs, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and several games. The gym has a variety of all-new workout equipment. There is a game room with several arcade style games.

If you are venturing out, you will find World Drive, the main thoroughfare to all the Disney parks just 3.3 miles from the house. We will share some time saving tips and tricks with our guests! Drive times range from 7 minutes to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, 18 minutes to the Magic Kingdom, and approximately 30 minutes to Universal Orlando, the home of Harry Potter.

About Steve

We are a family of 4 from the Northeast. We are huge Disney fans.

Steve purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Steve chose Disney / Orlando

There is no gated Resort closer to Disney than Emerald Island.

What makes this townhome unique

The house is close enough to Disney that you can take a break, and enjoy the pool without wasting valuable vacation time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at Emerald Island. The location was perfect - a short drive to WDW and lots of options for restaurants. We found it close enough to pop back and enjoy some mid day pool time. The townhouse itself is well appointed, clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed from hair dryers to tennis rackets. We used the pool at the clubhouse and printed our boarding passes in its business center.



Thanks Steve. It was a great place to stay and we would love to stay at your home again on our next visit.

Nice townhome in Emerald Island - one of the closer communities to Disney.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the town home made our trip to Disney a smooth and successful venture. The owner was pleasant to deal with and responsive to all questions we had and communicative throughout the process. The rate for our stay hands-down beats stays at a Disney resort or hotel in the area plus you get the opportunity to unwind away from the parks in a nice quiet community that is just a short drive to the parks. The home is convenient to shopping and restaurants, as well as, a quick drive to the parks. We would definitely stay here again on another trip. The house was clean and well supplied for our family of 4 (2 children of 10 and 14). Everyone had their own room for privacy as needed. Two minor recommendations for the property:

1) A larger TV in the living area would be nice. Although we spent most of our time in the parks, we did watch some TV late night and before heading to the parks. The TV in the living area could be a bit bigger given the size of the space.

2) The dryer seemed to take a long time to dry the clothes - we ran a couple of loads of laundry while there. It could be something simple liked a clogged dryer vent - might request that the maintenance company check.

Both of these items are minor and are nothing that would impact our rating or decision to come here again in the future - just suggestions. In all, had a great stay and time at Disney. Would recommend to others considering a community stay outside of Disney resorts.

Good property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Disney. It easily fit 4 adults and the location is hard to beat! One thing that wasn't mentioned in the description is that the AC can only go to 72 before risking issues - so it was somewhat warm on the hotter nights. The beds were very soft as well, but overall this was a good place to stay.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very nice home for 11 nights. Everything was perfect and exactly as pictures. Wifi worked very well and the hose was clean and comfortabe with plenty of towels and all you may need in the kitchen.. The location is very convenient for Disney parks and all restaurants on 192 Irlo Bronson. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. Thanks Steve for your hospitality and hope to return soon!

Niice quiet location, well appointed, and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Five of us (all adults) were meeting to celebrate a 50th Bday. We opted for a VBO after pricing 'normal' hotel accommodations in the same area. And after deciding on a VBO, we down selected to these accommodations based on price, location, and amenities. If you want quiet in the mornings and evenings to unwind and relax this is the place. The unit backs up onto woods, so there's no 'neighbors' to deal with behind you. The layout is great with bedrooms on the second floor - anyone who wants quiet time can simply go upstairs to get away. The unit was clean and well presented - nothing terribly fancy but more than comfortable. The complex is nice and offers a lot to do although we didn't take advantage (weather didn't permit). Clubhouse has happy hour with decent prices, and while we were there was never terribly busy. We'd definitely stay here again.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the quiet location with gated security. Also within 15-20 minutes from main attractions. We had privacy for each couple when sleeping but could be together other times in the large kitchen/family room. Would do again.
