Our home on Emerald Island Resort has been designed and furnished with your interests and comfort in mind.

We have chosen Emerald Island for the site of our home because of its location and its amenities. We have also chosen a house model that has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with 2216 square feet of air conditioned luxury.

We have designed a pool area which we are sure our guests will enjoy. The pool itself is situated almost central in the deck, so that guests can sunbath all around the perimeter giving a sense of more space than the 40'x30' the deck actually caters for.

Also attached to the pool is an outdoor spa which is raised 12" from the deck and accessed by steps.

Emerald Island is less than 10 minutes drive to the gates of Disney and less than 25 minutes from Sea World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Florida Mall, Mall of Millenia and Premium Outlets.


As you drive up to the entrance of the Beautiful Emerald Island Resort and pass through the security gates you will be greeted by the relaxing beauty of the dolphin fountains. The nearby club house which is located next to a picturesque lake with fountain includes amenities such as a gathering room with full size pool table and large TV, video games room, fitness room, sauna, computers with internet access, concierge service, communal pool and spa, licensed pool side bar serving soft drinks, beers, wines, hot and cold snacks.
The resort also includes Tennis Court, Basketball Court, Beach Volleyball, 2 outdoor kids play areas and a Nature Trail.
The resort itself benefits from an enviable location being so close to the Disney theme parks you are only minutes away from the fun and excitement that all the theme parks have to offer. Also being a gated community which is manned 24/7 gives additional piece of mind.

If you are after some retail therapy we are also close to the Premium Outlets, Prime Outlets, Florida Mall and Mall at Millenia, all are less than a twenty minute drive.
If you wish to visit the Beautiful Florida beaches you have the choice of the Atlantic coast with such beaches as Melbourne, Cocoa, Vero and Daytona or the Gulf coast which includes St Pete`s, Treasury Island, Madeira, Clearwater and many many more.

Our large 5 bedroom 4 bathroom air conditioned home is on two levels.
On entering Orlando`s Emerald Villa the entrance hallway guides you to the large living room area where you will immediately appreciate the open space due to the 17 foot ceiling and open plan layout. The patio doors in both the living room and adjoining kitchen nook both look out onto the beautiful large oversized south facing pool deck. The open plan theme carries from the nook through the fully equipped kitchen and into the formal dining room area.
All bedrooms in the home have cable television. Two of the double bedrooms are located on the ground level. One is the main master bedroom with views out to the pool deck. Furnished with large American king sized bed and TV armoire, this room has a spacious en-suite bathroom with walk in shower, his and hers marble sinks, corner bath and large walk in closet. The other bedroom located on the ground level has an American queen sized bed and has a bathroom with walk in shower located directly across the hall. The utility room is located in the home and not in the garage and has a large separate washer and dryer. The garage has been converted into a games room which includes pool table, air hockey and foosball tables.
The upper level consists of a further 3 bedrooms, one of which is the second master with an American queen sized bed and has its own en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms both have twin beds and share the fourth bathroom.
The large oversized south facing pool deck measures 30x40ft. With the house being of a size able to take up to ten people we have extended the pool deck so that it will easily accommodate large or multiple families. The 30x14ft pool is positioned almost central on the deck giving more sunbathing area around the pool. Even with the baby safety fence in position, there is ample sunbathing space either side of the fence. The pool furnishings consist of 6 loungers, 2 reclining chairs with footstools, two tables and eight chairs. There is also a Spa attached to the pool for those relaxing nights after a tiring day at the theme parks or shopping malls, sipping a cool drink under the stars. You can’t beat it!!!

All bathrooms have hair dryers and all bedrooms have ceiling fans. Towels, pool towels and bed linen are also provided.
For parties with infants, we also supply push chairs (2), portable cots (2) and a high chair for your use during your stay.
Free Wi-Fi broadband connection for guests who wish to use their laptops or mobile device.
Free local, long distance and international phone calls.


Here are some of the comments we have received from our guests.

Hello Mark and Hannah.

How nice to get a welcome home email from you! I should have expected it really - your whole package, from your web details and design to your directions and instructions were /are excellent.

Your villa is beautiful, we were so pleased when we arrived there. For a villa that is let out as often as yours is, well, it was just brilliant. And so close to Disney! It's great to get something that does what it says on the tin. Yours met all our expections and then some.

Our daughter goes to university this September and she has always wished to go to Disney, as did our neighbours 2 girls (all 7 of us enjoyed it) so I think that we will go back to the USA but not Disney. However, we have friends who are thinking of going and there is no doubt about it - we will recommend your villa. And this is something I would not do lightly. Because if it wasn't good, my name would be mud!

Thank you for enabling us all to have such a great time,

Yours sincerely,
Love and light,

Ralph, Angela and Amanda and Jim, Diane, Lucy and Amy (UK)

Hi Mark and Hannah
We had a wonderful time at your home and loved everthing about your home - Best quality in furniture/ If we were to rate this home from 1 - 5 Stars I would rate your home as 6 Stars... I'm not kidding the quality is the best
The game room & Pool was a blessing / The Mgmt. Agent stopped by to welcome us
which was really nice / We also got the welcome package ... Wow
At the end of the day we could not wait to go home ( Your Home )
I will let my Friends and Family know about your place I look forward to going again
to your place in the future.
With Sincere and Kind Regards.... E.L. (USA)
Hello Mark and Hannah,

We truly enjoyed our stay in your villa(even though it wasn't long enough).It was exactly what we were hoping it would be! Everyone commented on it being the best villa that we had stayed in thus far! Thank you for a dream come true. IF or should I say WHEN we visit Florida again we'll definitely book with you! We treated your home like it was our own. Once again, thanks for everything

C.M. (USA)
Hi Mark,
Only just got back from Florida, we had a week in Sarasota after our two weeks at your place - so sorry for delay in replying.
Your house was wonderful - perfect size, perfect location. We found it no problem at all and we've never been so close to Disney - our party spanned three generations and everyone loved it ! We will definitely recommend it to our friends.
Whilst I'm on, I have to say you've got yourself a great management company, the house was spotless.....a bit of a rarity.... Be glad your company is working well for you. We couldn't fault your house at all.
Kind Regards
Andrew & Fiona (UK)

Mark and Hannah,
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Your villa was probably the biggest contributor. The grandchildren simply loved the pool and spa. In fact when we asked the 6 year old the best part of the vacation she said "the pool". Each day at Disney the two oldest kept saying, "Let's go back to the pool"! The baby items were a great help to us. We used all of it! Thanks for the strollers! The benefit of the directions was quite helpful especially the shortcut to Disney - Thanks! We used the game room several times, our favorite was the air hockey game. The TVs in each room was wonderful. You seem to have come up with the perfect vacation villa for those with children. Thanks for being so considerate!
The management company had complimentary eggs, bread, juice, milk, butter, etc when we arrived and we thought that was wonderful. We loved the bread especially!
We know this is lengthy but wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your villa and we will definitely recommend the villa to our friends. No doubt we will return to your villa when we return to Flordia. Thank you so much for everything you did!
Jay, Jeannine and family! (USA)
Dear Mark and Hannah

Thank you very much for the speedy return of the security deposit. We had a fantastic holiday and the villa is wonderful. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and should we return to Orlando, we will of course be in touch.

Many thanks and kind regards

David, Sue, Sharron, Richard, Vicki, Ashton and Ciara! (UK)
Hello Mark & Hannah-
We did have a great time in Florida. Your home was great and we thank you for the opportunity to rent it. We will certainly contact you again if our future trips include the Orlando area.
Thanks again-
K.W. (USA)
Hi Mark,
I've been meaning to email you since we returned to let you know what a wonderful time we had and your home was a big part of that. We were thrilled with the house; the kids were able to spread out and the pool kept them active and happy when we weren't out at the parks. I've been telling everyone how ideal the set-up was so you'll be sure to hear from some of our friends in the future.
We'll definitely be in touch when we return to Orlando.
Best wishes to you and your family,
Cathy, Dave, Kevin, Patrick, Andrew and Tommy (USA)
Dear Marc and Hannah,

We really enjoyed our stay in
your home and would like to thank you for everything.

We will of course recommend your home to all our friends and family. The
resort is very well run and everything was in pristine condition.

Our Florida trip was very enjoyable and the kids were very happy.

Thank you and best regards,
M. N-S. (Spain)

Mark and Hannah, thanks for letting us stay at your lovely villa. Our group enjoyed the stay at the villa - the decor was very tasteful, rooms were spacious, and the pool was really nice. We will definitely consider your villa for our next Orlando trip. Take care.
A.L. (USA).
Mark and Hannah, I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for leaving a christmas gift for Paige when we rented your villa over Christmas. Winnie the Pooh now occupies a permanent space beside her crib and gets a big hug every day! Thanks so much for going above and beyond in preparing the villa for our stay. We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed the villa and the gorgeous pool.
Best regards, C.W. (Canada).

Just got back to work this morning. The house was great! super location and very nicely laid out and fully supplied. Thank you very much for a wonderful vacation home. Thank you also for the very generous Pooh Bear for Paige. She loved it! It was very thoughtful as her parents only brought a limited number of toys.
Judith (Canada).
Hi Mark-
Thank you so much. The house was wonderful. Everything was exactly as we expected. Our vacation was a lot of fun. We will certainly be in touch whenever we travel back to Orlando.
Thanks again!!
Todd (USA)
Just thought we would give you some feedback on our holiday.
First of all many thanks for the card and champagne for our silver anniversary, that was a nice touch.
The pool heating was fantastic!
The location and setting of the villa was perfect for our short stay, being close to all of the shops and restaurants.
Deborah and I had a very relaxing and comfortable stay in your lovely home, once again many thanks for the use of it.
Kind regards
Peter and Deborah UK)
Mark and Hannah,
Just a quick email to let you know that we had a great time in Orlando. The house is in an excellent location. The kids loved the pool and my eldest son couldn't believe his luck at having a TV in his bedroom!
Louise (UK)
Mark, Just got back into work this morning so you can probably imagine how I am feeling at the moment. I had a fantastic holiday and cant wait to get back. The villa was way beyond anything I expected. Not sure if you are booked up for Christmas period yet but I am seriously tempted if I can find flights. We ate in loads of pretty nice restaurants. I loved Islands of Adventure at Universal and Bush Gardens is not to be missed. Let me know if your villa is available over Christmas period.
Scott (Scotland).
Mark, Hannah,
The house was lovely and exceeded our expectations. We were very impressed with the entire development.
We typically visit Florida 2-3 times a year and we will be considering your home again. Hopefully it is available at time we firm-up our next trip to Florida.
Best Regards,
Stan and Patty (USA).
Dear Hannah,
The home was wonderful, and everything went well. The pool was great and we left several floatation devices along with two disney guide books for future guests. Overall good experience.

Thanks we had fantastic time. The villa was amazing and far surpassed our expectations. To have so much space and luxury fittings was a real treat and the pool was superb. Your directions from the airport were spot on and the key and alarm worked a dream.
Many thanks for all your help. Our holiday was a real success.
Kind regards

Beautiful Home

5.0 / 5

Our family enjoyed an amazing two weeks at Mark and Hannah’s villa. It was spotlessly clean on arrival, tastefully decorated and furnished, a luxury home from home. Oh, and the beds are amazingly comfortable, just what you need after a long day at the parks.

The pool is amazing, the kids loved it (so did we).

The management company are on hand to deal with any questions and are super helpful.

Mark and Hannah have thought of everything that you need at their home to make your holiday a special one.

This was our 4th trip to Orlando but have always stayed in one the higher end Disney Hotels, but the next time we are back in Orlando we will be booking the villa again. No going back to the hotels for us!

The villa is in a great location, a short drive from Disney and about 20mins or so from Universal. There are loads of restaurants close by along with a number of supermarkets. Emerald Island resort is great, everything is immaculately looked after and there is a great clubhouse on hand.

Thanks for a great holiday.

The Hughes Family.

Fabulous villa

5.0 / 5

What a fabulous villa, the owners have thought of everything. The house is fitted out with everything you may need during your stay...even board games and dvd's for the rainy nights. They have collated and information booklet which covers everything you need to know about the villa and the surrounding area. We had an amazing time and it made it more special staying in such a lovely place, the house is spacious, clean and well looked after. The pool was an added bonus to cool off after the long hot days. Easy drive to Disney and Universal and restaurants along 192, cant wait to stay again. Would highly recommend, thanks Hannah and Mark
