Emerald Island Resort is one of the most prestigious resort developments in the West US192 Disney area whilst being the closest to Disney at genuinely less than three miles. The secure manned and gated community is nestled on a large upland tropical oasis area set within hundreds of acres of nature preserve. The elevated position of the resort means that the views over the lowland wetland and woodland preserve are unrivalled. The Davenport creek runs by the resort and all the way through to Tampa bay and the wildlife is abundant with prolific rare and exotic species. Over the creek runs the land bridge which is the only approaching road into the secure resort where you will see many birds and other wildlife enjoying the natural habitat as you approach the friendly gatehouse keeper and security guard. Within the heart of the resort are 11 acres of protected woodland with nature trails and picnic areas for you and your family to enjoy a lazy afternoon away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks.

At the clubhouse you will find all the things that you would expect to find in a 5* hotel. The reception functions much the same as that of a hotel and offers information, the arrangement of transport or dinner tickets etc. The facilities include a communal pool with tiki bar for early evening drinks and snacks before dinner and a gym, sauna, cyber cafe, games arcade, sundries shop, tot lot for the younger guests and for the more adventurous, tennis and volleyball courts.

*****The Emerald Villa is set on one of the most enviable and largest plots at the resort and offers more peace, quiet and tranquility than you will find almost anywhere else in the area. From the southerly facing pool deck there are beautiful views of the tranquil lake, and across from the lake there are unspoilt lush green woodland and wetland lowland habitat protected areas as far as the eye can see. No other villas spoil the view and those to the side are set back and due to the size of the plots here are far enough away allowing the pool area unrivalled privacy.


The pool area was designed to be a tropical oasis to create a space worthy of the tropical views and bring some of the lush greenery closer adding to the overall seclusion of the pool deck area. The pool itself includes a large rock waterfall feature surrounded by tropical plants and flowers of the area and a selection of huge clay pots and urns full of lush green foliage.

The large pool deck area was extended as far toward the lake and either side of the home as we could go to ensure that there is ample room for all our guests and more to enjoy the Florida sunshine. The southerly outlook means that it catches the full sun, but if the Florida sunshine is not your thing or you have had your fill for the day you can shade under the fans in the Lanai area and ample loungers and chairs for all are provided. Its the perfect place to break bread and drink wine as the sun falls over the horizon and the evening lighting of the pool area comes to life with a versatile atmosphere that suits either the party animals or romantics among your guests.

Pool area amenities:-

-Larger 32´ x 16´ heated pool with spa

-Relaxing custom designed rock waterfall falls into the pool

-Massive pool deck extended as far as possible in width and breadth

-Southerly facing elevated views over Lake and woodland preserve beyond as far as the eye can see

-Huge plot offering unrivalled privacy and peace and quiet with ZERO noise pollution

-Tropical plants and flowers in clay urns around the pool deck, beautiful seclusion

-Pool safety fence for child protection

-Shaded porched area under fans to escape the sun

-Music speakers above the porch to enjoy radio / CD´s etc outside

-BBQ grill and gas

-Loungers, chairs and tables for all the family

-Evening lighting suitable for the partygoer or romantic to set the mood

It is a Palm Harbour style designed specifically for the most prestigious "Enclave" part of Emerald Island resort. The home is conveniently located around 5 minutes walk from the clubhouse or maybe 10 if you take the nature trail.

The furnishings and decor are in two forms. The dining and living room area and the main master bedrooms, with their opulent four poster beds, all have an elegant and formal style that is just plain lavish. The kitchen diner and family room, however, have a much more casual style that you can really kick back and relax in. Dont get me wrong you can relax in all the rooms but these areas offer casual comfort and relaxation. The family room boasts rustic furniture and top grain leather sofas, the ultimate in leather seating and the perfect place to enjoy the large 50" Full HD screen with digital home theater system and Satellite HD package viewing. This system is amazing and a wide selection of DVDs, games has been provided for rainy days or lazy evenings.

The garage has been converted into the ULTIMATE gaming room complete with air conditioning, air hockey, foosball, A Huge 50" plasma screen for HD sports viewing, a Brunswick 8ft Pool table with centennial ball and cue set, " HD LCD screens with Xbox 360s online and system linked, 4 pachinko machines and more. Finished off with bar lights this room is a fun place to spend an evening (or a month!) with your family. More than a few times guests have commented that there is so much to do inside the villa that it is difficult to spare time to visit Disney! Which is extremely handy for those rainy days which are unfortunately inevitable in the rainy season...

The villa has a compliment of four master bedrooms. These are all ensuite and have been furnished with king or queen four poster beds with pillow top quality bedding. In fact all beds apart from the top bunk in the younger themed boys room are lavished with pillow top hypoallergenic bedding, so luxurious its like sleeping on a cloud and you wont want to go home. The three twin rooms each have an adjoining ensuite bathroom shared with one other room. Two of these bedrooms have been themed, the first with two single four poster beds in a white lacy fairy style for the younger more discerning ladies in the party, and the other in a Cowboy and Indian style to suit the younger gentlemen of the group. The other twin room has been furnished in a neutral style to suit anyone. Televisions, telephones and alarm clocks etc are provided in each bedroom.

The kitchen is equipped with everything that you could possibly need for providing summer drinks or snacks, to catering for full scale dinner parties.

*****The Emerald Villa....The Ultimate vacation home!

We know there is no finer - but don’t take our word for it - our guestbook speaks for itself…

“Our vacation was incredible. Your home was just perfect for our family - spacious and comfortable. Even when all thirteen of us were there together, we did not feel cramped. The kids loved the pool area, the game room, and their bedrooms. I thought the beds were luxurious. After walking our butts off in the parks every day, it was heaven to curl up in our bed at night. Your home offers all this and a short drive to Disney World, too. We could not have asked for anything more! You are providing a high quality vacation home that I would recommend to anyone. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. We wish you all the best.”

“Your villa was excellent and provided us a wonderful home base during our week long visit. We found everything to be as advertised and in many cases to be even better. Highlights were the awesome screened in patio area, the games room for the kids and finally what I am sure you have heard very often......... great beds!”

“We’ve been visiting homes in this area for the last six years and yours has been my favourite so far! There is nothing you have overlooked. From the games room to the beautiful pool (love the waterfall – nice touch!) to the comfortable beds at the end of a fun-filled day. We all had a wonderful time and look forward to sharing your home again!”

“Everything at the house was perfect. The kids truly enjoyed themselves and though we were out each day the evenings were kept busy with the pool, games room and videos. The location also worked out great for us as well. We have recommended it to some other people that may look at it for their next vacation. Thank you very much for the professional and courteous way in which we were treated.”

“We had a fabulous vacation. The villa was everything we expected and more... perfect for our large group. It is truly a beautiful home away from home!”

“We had a lovely time, and enjoyed the house so much (even more than the parks) – there was plenty of rooms and space for all of us. The kids loved the pool, and we enjoyed sitting around with our margaritas. Wish I was sitting there now...”

“We had an absolutely wonderful time in Florida. The villa was probably the best part. All the kids had a wonderful time and loved the games room and pool. We didnt even use all of our park passes as the kids would rather be spending time back at the house than in the long lines at the parks. It was very busy on our second week. Basically everything was amazing, especially the thick beds. If, or should I say... when we come back, Ill definitely be giving you call. Thanks again for making our holiday so comfortable and relaxing.”

“We had a WONDERFUL time. Your house had everything we could possibly want, and like you said, the beds were so incredibly comfortable. Usually you cant wait to get home and get in your own bed, but I didnt want to leave yours. It was so hard leaving on Saturday, none of us were ready to go, we wished we could have stayed another week.

The pool area is incredible. Im not usually one for pools but even I was in and just lounging around, and all the plantings did make it quite private. Your location is perfect, it only took us minutes to get to shopping and Disney, and we liked the idea that there were no neighbours behind us.”
