If shopping is your thing then whilst staying at one of our luxury vacation rentals and villas on Emerald Island Resort why not visit one of the nearby malls. Three of the best that we visit on a regular basis are the Florida Mall which has all the big department stores (Macy's, Dillards, JC Penny, Nordstorm) and some great sales at certain times of the year. Next is the Orlando Premium Outlets where everything is on sale all the time and you can get some amazing bargains but don't end up buying clothes just because they seem like a steal. Lastly is The Mall at Millenia which has all the high end brands like Tiffany & Co, Apple, Breitling, Coach, Rolex, Burberry, Cartier and many more so if you are looking to spend some serious money this is the place for you. The Mall at Millennia also has some of the best restaurants in Orlando like The Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang's and Brio Tuscan Grille so why head there for an early dinner and late night shopping.
Please contact the Emerald Island Resort vacation rental owners direct via the contact forms to check availability, prices, read reviews or ask any questions about booking.

Having just returned from our two week summer holiday at this villa for the 2nd time we can only say what a delight it has been. The villa is very clean, well looked after and had all the amenities we needed for a relaxing holiday. The pool was idyllic as the weather was in excess of 90 degrees the temperature, although unheated, was great. There is the possibility to heat pool if required. The bedrooms had plenty of storage and the bed was very comfortable. We would highly recommend this villa for a family as the safety aspect has been well addressed everywhere. Also everywhere was very clean. Loved it and would not hesitate to rebook a third time.

Perfect for disney
The main purpose of our trip to Florida was visiting the Disney parks. And for this purpose, the villa is bang on for location! A 10-15 minute very easy drive to all Disney parks without too much traffic. Emerald Island Resort itself is beautifully maintained and being a gated community, we did feel quite safe there. This villa’s floorplan was perfect for us being 6 adults, 2 kids and 1 baby spanning 3 generations. It was absolutely worth paying extra for pool heat for our March week-long stay as when we weren’t at the parks, we took full advantage of having our own private pool and hot tub. Although this villa comes with loads of extras you may not find included in other rentals, I do wish a bigger supply of the free starter quantities of the more basic amenities would have been included, such as extra garbage/recycling bags, coffee filters, dishwashing soap, facial tissues and extra toilet paper for all washrooms… All easy fixes ;)
The rec room was a super fun and the Villa has a great "home" feel to it.
I highly recommend this villa for families looking to stay close to Disney without being on the Disney resort.

Thanks for your comments Gabrielle. We supply free starter quantities. However you can pre order anything you need, before your arrival and we will be happy to ensure it is in your home on arrival. Thanks Michael
Great place to stay.
Great villa in a good location. Lots of great restaurants close by and easy to drive to Disney and universal studios.
Villa has plenty to keep the kids entertained. They loved the pool and also the games room.
Villa is clean and spacious and has everything required to make the holiday comfortable.
Will definitely recommend this villa to others and will hopefully be back.

Great for Families
For a family of 9 spanning 3 generations we really couldn't have asked for a better home from home for our big Disney holiday. The house was fully equipped right down to high chair and buggy. The netted pool area was a big hit and beautifully clean. The location is so convenient with restaurants and supermarkets close by for your time at home and really convenient for all the Disney parks. The open spaces and nature walk on the gated resort were great for wildlife spotting. Michael made everything very easy re the booking and gave us really helpful advise for flights etc. It was so nice to be able to speak to an owner in this country. We would certainly recommend this villa to family and friends and would have no hesitation in returning if we head that way again. Thank you for helping to make our holiday amazing.

We just love this place
we have recently returned from yet another fabulous holiday staying in Michael & Susan's villa. We have stayed here 4 times, twice in this home and twice in their other home next door. The house is great with everything you need, just bring some clothes! The location is perfect for all the Disney parks with Universal being just a little further but still within 30 minutes. The games room was well used with family regular family battles over air hockey, pool and basket ball and the pool was a great place to relax after a long day in the parks. Michael & Susan are really pleasant to deal with and always happy to provide information if required. The external grounds around the house are well kept. We would certainly recommend either home for a great holiday location

We would like to thank you for playing a part in us having a fantastic holiday. The villa is very big, we had 6 adults staying there and ample room. It had everything we needed and it was like a home from home, pool and external area was lovely and well kitted out with furniture. The garage is fitted out with several games, however due to it being a very busy holiday we did not make much use of this, but there if you need it. This villa is so close to everything, shops, restaurants, parks etc. Security is good for vehicle access We would recommend and we hope to use the villa again. Thank you.

We have just returned from a weeks stay with our 22 month old son. From booking the villa to leaving the villa the experience has been fantastic. The villa was clean, well located, spacious and fully equipped with everything you may need- the facilities were great. We will definitely look to stay again in the future and be sure to recommend it to our friends and family. Thanks again.

We would highly recommend this to everyone and we hope to use the villa again. Thank you. John

It had Everything!
Just back from 2 weeks in retreat 2 and had a wonderful time. The villa had plenty of space for 6 adults and 2 children and had everything you could have wanted in terms of utensils, crockery and towels. Any questions or issues were dealt with promptly by Michael and the management company. So close to Disney and any amount of restaurants and supermarkets on the doorstep. Would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone and we will definitely stay here again.

We stayed in Villa 2 for 2 weeks at the end of May and had the most fantastic time. The villa was perfect in every way. The children aged 4 and 6 thought their Disney themed bedroom was brilliant and they really enjoyed the swimming pool. There was a plentiful supply of cutlery and crockery for the dishwasher and the large washing machine made keeping us all clean very easy. The proximity of the villa to all of the theme parks was a huge plus and made it possible to go to the Parks in the morning, come back for a couple of hours in the pool and then return to the Parks for the shows in the evening. Any queries we had were answered promptly by Michael from the UK and by the Management Company in Orlando. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone considering a holiday in Orlando.

What a lovely house. Looks just like the pictures on the website. No need to take anything the house has everything you could need. Dishes pots and pans linens. The pool and hot tubs were clean and warm. We were there for one week which wasn't enough wish I was still there. I will stay there again and have told all our friends what a nice place to stay. Close to all the major parks. Hope the next trip is longer. Michael was such a nice person to deal with. Thanks again.

Just returned from 16 nights at villa 2 would give it 10 out of 10. Beautiful villa lovely and clean, great location. Four lovely big bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Pool wonderful, great resort. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay there again. Michael and Susan are fantastic people to deal and did everything to make our holiday go smoothly. We have stayed in hotels on previous visits to Orlando but having teenage children a villa gives you much more space.

We just spent 8 nights at this house it was wonderful .
The house was everything it said it was going to be, the pool was clean and warm, our Grandkids had to be dragged out of the water.
We have stayed in this neighborhood in the past with just a terrible experience, we thought we would give it one more try and this place was awesome
I would recommend it to all my friends, who want to do the Disney thing. thanks for having a great house for my family to use.

We have recently returned from our Christmas/New Year break and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this vacation home. The amenities were spotlessly clean, in very good condition and brilliantly located for all the parks and entertainment/restaurants. The swimming pool was well heated and clean and was safeguarded by a mesh to avoid our grandchildren from any potential danger. The games tables in the garage were very well accepted by my husband and son-in-law and I appreciated the washing machine and tumble dryer. We would have no hesitation in recommending this vacation home or returning to it in the future. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

Fantastic villa in a fantastic location. We stayed in villa 2, it was clean well set out and very comfortable. Emerald island is a lovely resort and so handy for Disney and the 192 where there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. Michael was excellent to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to anyone wishing to holiday in this area.

We have just returned from our 3rd stay in Michael & Susan's homes 2009, 2011 & 2014 (4th holiday in Orlando - first time in a hotel). Both properties are fabulous, within easy reach of everything (disney really is only 10 mins away) and Universal is only about 30 mins. We absolutely love it, the homes have everything you need. I would thoroughly recommend renting either villa and will certainly be back again in the future. Thank you!

Just returned from a week spent at Emerald
Island Resort. My sister and I along with our
grown kids and grand kids rented the 2 side by
side villas. My family and I were very pleased with
the condition of the home. It was spotless when
we arrived and all amenities were available and in
very good working order. One day we tried to use
the dryer and it was not working, we called and
someone came the same day and fixed the
problem. Everything else went very smoothly. The
location is also great, very close to anything you
would need for your vacation. Also felt very safe
on the resort. Was there for a family reunion and
all the homes that were rented (6) also had the
same experience. The process before getting
there, setting up the rental, payment, etc, was
also very easy with no problems at all. Would most definitely rent again.

Stayed for a week in June and had a wonderful time. House was CLEAN and had a wonderful supply of cooking and serving pieces. Beds were comfortable. As it was chilly I wish I had planned on the hottub being heated so the pool would have been warm but we enjoyed it anyway. We would rent again.

We have just returned from our first family vacation with our 6 month old twin girls. The house was immaculate and had all the amenities we could have wished for. As the property is all on one level and the pool was secured behind a mesh barrier we could relax knowing the girls were perfectly safe. The owner even managed to supply to cots in order to accommodate us. We will definitely be booking again.
