Description of the Kissimmee vacation villa rental

The Emerald Villa is the last word in Luxury for the Florida villa rental market. It is the Ultimate vacation experience. Period! The villa has been accredited by The Florida Guild of Owners, an independant and unbiased accreditor of Florida vacation homes. It boasts a 5* 'Signature' rating, the highest possible accolade! There really is no finer place to stay in the Disney area!


If it's the most luxurious vacation experience you require then look no further because this is it. This 7 bedroom executive pool home is equipped to the highest luxury and comfort that we know sets it apart from any other. When we go on vacation we want to be pampered and that is what this villa is all about. It is the most luxurious and comfortable villa experience you and your family can find in the Disney area.


Emerald Island Resort is one of the most prestigious resort developments in the Disney area whilst being the closest to Disney at less than three miles to the famous gates! 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 anywhere. 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 in a 5 star 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 before dinner, gym, sauna, cyber cafe, games arcade, tot lot for the younger guests and for the more adventurous, tennis and volleyball courts. A sundries shop with DVD hire have now been added to complement the clubhouse.


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 elevated position of the villa means that the views overlooking the trees are truly majestic. Birds and other wildlife love it here and we have observed otters playing in the lakes.


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 wide 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. It's 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.


This villa has 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a games room, two living areas and it's very own private pool. 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. Don't 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 DISH Satellite HD Platinum package viewing. This system is amazing and a wide selection of DVDs, games has been provided for rainy days or lazy evenings. Kareoke and Bluray will be added to the entertainment system in the near future.

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, 4 32" HD LCD screens with playstations and Xbox 360's 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 boy's room are lavished with pillow top 'hypoallergenic' bedding, so luxurious it's like sleeping on a cloud and you won't 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. We have catered for what we consider all eventualities and guests but if you require something you feel may not be at the villa please ask and we will do our best to provide it if it isn't already there.

NEWSFLASH - - - DISH HD satellite TV!! 3DTV, Music by the pool, XBox's Online, Pachinko machines added!! The home was also painted throughout inside and out and has had new carpets as part of our ongoing intensive maintenance program that provides excellence for each and every guest. More improvements are planned for 2015!!! - - -

INCLUDED in the prices shown are Tax, Pool and spa heating, Telephone, WiFi Internet, DISH Satellite HD viewing, BBQ and gas and midweek maid service with towel / linen changes and cleans during your stay.

No villa looks after you more! We know that you and your guests can't stay in better accommodation or at a finer location in the Disney area. The Emerald VillaThere's no finer!

Area Information
The resort is the closest to Disney - so close that it isn't really considered Kissimmee but part of Celebration, Disney's own community located to the south of the main theme parks. And being this close to Disney and Celebration means you can enjoy all the broad range of restaurants and amenities that they have to offer. Less than a mile from the resort entrance are golf clubs that boast championship conditions all year around if that's your interest and in the other direction the 192 with all it's attractions and nightlife. The Outback Steakhouse, Carrabbas Italian restaurant and many more are all situated less than a mile away as is the nearest supermarket and walk in clinic.

The resort style living at Emerald Island Resort has something to offer to all of the family and is so much more than a just a house on an estate. Membership of the resort for your party is included within your stay at our villa and you are free to use all amenities as much or as little as you wish.

Beautiful house! We wanted for nothing!

Beautiful house! We wanted for nothing!

February 25, 2013

We were really impressed by this house. The decor was very tasteful yet very comfortable. The owners did a great job of making it beautiful! Everything we could have even imagined that we wanted was in the house including all baby items which was so great! We didn't have any problems at all but if we did, the property manager information was clearly available in the house. We felt very safe in the neighbourhood as it was gated. There were playgrounds on the property and also an amazing Community centre with a great pool. I would highly recommend this house for a large group get together. Although there were 9 adults and 4 kids in the house it did not feel crowded at all. Beautiful vacation!

We rented this villa for a family reunion and all of us were very pleased with the accommodations as it served our needs well. After many full days of activity everyone looked forward to returning to the villa every evening as it became an oasis from the crowds we faced daily at the parks. I would highly recommend this villa.
