We visited lots of resorts in the area, but were immediately struck by Emerald Island. The beautiful entrance and landscaping gave it a wow factor even while it was under construction. We loved the Emerald Island location, the proximity to Disney, easy access to golf, shopping, and restaurants of all kinds on our doorstep. The property was well planned, light and airy and we thought an ideal choice both for our family and for guests.

About the owner: I am a married father of one. Although I was born in England I now work and live in New Jersey. We drive to Florida at least once a year and love the time we spend at the house. Our family visit from England every year and we have great times by the pool and in the parks with all the children.
Why this property? We chose this house for it's proximity to Disney and all the attractions of the area. We were impressed with the beautiful landscaping and impressive entrance driveway past lakes and fountains on the Resort. The house is light, airy and welcoming.
Ideal villa for visiting parks
This is a lovely villa on a quiet, gated development with supermarket and restaurants nearby. The villa was clean and comfortable and ideal for a family. The pool and hot tub were the perfect place to relax after a busy day in the parks. We would certainly book again.

Perfect in many ways!!
We stayed here Owner was very responsive and great to work with. The home is absolutely beautiful & clean as is in picture!! Loved that it is in a gated community with your own private pool/spa, game room with air hockey, pool and fuse ball and a washer & dryer. Each bedroom has its own tv and in both living rooms. It's in a beautiful resort off the beaten path but very close to everything you need...Walmart, gas stations, restaurants, shopping & all the parks! Absolutely loved being able to come back to this house after long days at the parks and relax in this gorgeous home. I would highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again!!!
