Description from owner

Emerald Island Lake Front Villa is perfectly located on the exclusive 24-hour gate guarded Emerald Island resort-style community, less than 3 miles from Walt Disney World. With ~ 3000 sq. feet, private lake and forest view, luxury furnishing, spacious living & play space, 7 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, this stunning Orlando vacation home is perfect for family groups. Top quality, affordable price!

Emerald Island Lake Front Villa has a spacious family room to relax in together during the day or evening, with furnishings, cable TV, DVD Player and VCR. There's also a separate lounge area providing extra space, and the perfect place for the kids to play - or for that peaceful haven to get away from it all. The bright and airy kitchen has been equipped with almost everything that you could possibly want to prepare a family feast or a quick snack. Let the family eat together at the separate formal dining area, or choose to snack at the breakfast nook off the kitchen.

Step outside from the family room, and enjoy the Florida sunshine as you have fun together in the sparkling, crystal clear pool. When you want to relax, sit in the soothing bubbles of the raised spa pool, and let the sound of the waterfall relax you or simply lie out on the cushioned deck loungers under the Florida sun as you look out to the beautiful lake at the rear. The pool is provided with a removable safety fence for extra added protection for young infants should you need it, and all doors leading on to the deck area have been provided with additional safety locks and alarms.

“Magnificent experience”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2018

We had an excellent stay in the villa and all my family and friends had a great stay. Everything was working correctly. . It is minutes from Disney parks and shopping stores. The Villa is closed and is safe. All communications with the owner were quick and decisive! Thank you for the beautiful experiences we had there! Thank you! Thank you!

Owner's reply: Go glad to have your group with a wonderful vacation at Lake Front Villa and Orlando! Many thanks for your stay! Welcome back any time :-)

“Perfect home for trip to Disney with large family!”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2017

This is a great house for a large family. It is well eqippped and has ample bedrooms and baths. We loved the spaciousness, allowing the 12 of us ( 8 adults, 4 children)to spread out and relax. It had everything we needed and the location couldn't have been better for our trips to Disneyworld. It is also near a supermarket. Because of all of these reasons, our family decided to return each evening after long days and bar-b-que, where the the pool and hot tub offered a welcome, restful respite. Mike and his manager dealt with several minor needs (I.e. One of the pool screens had ripped in a recent storm) courteously and quickly. We all regretted that we were unable to stay longer and would certainly stay here again if and when we return to Orlando! Thanks for everything, Mike!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your stay and feedback! Welcome back any time!

“Beautiful house”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2016

My family and i had an amazing time at this beautiful house, it was amazing. 20 of us stayed at this house and there was plenty of room for everybody. The house felt like we were at home. It had that home feeling. My daughter cried cuz she didn't want to leave. The only thing is that the pool is not warm enough if you decide to go in the winter, as he tells u in the description. My advice is get the pool as hot as u can, but that didn't stop anybody from swimming. The owner as well was really nice and quick to answer your questions and take care of any problems u might have. I will be returning soon to stay again and this house. Thank you again for everything, my family and i loved your home.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your group's stay! Welcome back any time!

“Beautiful view and Clean home”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2016

I loved the pool view in this home. Everything in the home was nice, new and clean. The only thing is everyone should bring extra sheets and blankets if needed during the colder months in Florida. There was not enough blankets, sheets, and towels to use as stated in the descriptions that I received. Other than that, everything in the home was very clean, it was roomy for 12 people, beautiful pool view, nice neighborhood.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your stay and comment! Actually extra sheets and blankets are in cabinet by 2nd floor's hallway. Extra towels are on laundry room's shelf. I am sorry this was overlooked to mention clearly in my e-mails. Welcome back any time!
