About the Property
Our beautiful seven bedroom / six bathroom home is situated in the exclusive “Enclave” section of Emerald Island, a gated resort community which is within 5 minutes' drive of Disney World.
It is an ideal location for large family groups. Inside, the house is fully equipped to a very high standard to meet all your holiday requirements.
Each bedroom has a TV/DVD combo. The main family area has a 52 inch wide screen “smart” TV with a soundbar and Blu-ray DVD player. The second floor den has an additional flat screen TV with a Playstation (with a selection of games).
The house is fully air-conditioned and has a games room with a pool table, air hockey and Foosball table (table football).
The house leads onto a shaded lanai with tables and chairs. Beyond is a screened deck area with a heated south facing 30 foot pool and spa with sun loungers, overlooking a lake and a wooded conservation area. There are alarms on all doors leading to the pool and a child safety fence can be erected if preferred.
The pool area overlooks a lake and beyond that a conservation area.
If privacy is what you require, this is the house for you.
Emerald Island (considered one of the area's finest communities) is built around a wooded area with a walking/jogging/biking trail. Shuttle services are available to the attractions. There is a large clubhouse with a heated community pool and spa, sauna, fitness centre, clubroom, video games room and computer room with internet access. Facilities also include an outdoor play area for children, tennis courts and a Tiki Hut.
Our house is located two minutes away from Formosa Gardens Plaza which has a large supermarket and several shops and restaurants. For sports enthusiasts, there are several highly regarded golf courses within a very short drive. In addition to Disney World, attractions such as Sea World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are easily accessed via the I-4 junction just minutes away from the house. Kennedy Space Centre is an hour's drive away on the Atlantic Coast along with famous beaches such as Cocoa Beach. Busch Gardens in Tampa is an hour's drive towards the Gulf coast with yet more beautiful beaches to choose from along the Gulf.

About the owner: We are Gareth and Cathie. We first visited Florida with our children in 1997 and have been coming back ever since.
What do we love about the Orlando area? The sunshine, the scenery, the theme parks for the children and the opportunity to relax by playing tennis and golf, swimming and visiting beautiful beaches and national parks. Nowhere helps us unwind like Florida.
Why this property? We stayed in a number of different communities in the Orlando area before we decided to buy a house in Central Florida.
When we first visited Emerald Island, we knew immediately that this was the resort for us. We set our sights on buying a house with a south facing pool area overlooking one of the lakes. We couldn't believe our luck when Casa Esmeralda became available. Not only was it our dream house, it was also in the perfect location.
