All our Emerald Island vacation rentals are ideally located close to lots of restaurants, shops and within 20 minutes of all the Orlando theme parks including Universal Studios and Wet n Wild. Within 5 minutes drive you have access to over 20 different restaurants from TGI's Fridays, Bahama Breeze, Longhorn Steakhouse, Applebee's, Millers Ale House, Logan's Roadhouse, Bonefish Grill, Red Lobster a number of pizza parlours, there are also the usual fast food restaurants like McDonalds, Burger King and Taco Bell.
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. Every one of our Emerald Island Resort villas is privately owned and locally managed so all you need to do is relax and enjoy your holiday.

We stayed in this home for 8 nights and found it to be very clean and
comfortable. The pool and hot tub were great after a long day at the
parks, and can't say enough about how beautiful Emerald Island is and
how friendly the staff are. We would definitely stay at this house
again, it was so nice and so convenient to everywhere we wanted to go
during our vacation, and the homeowners are very nice, too!

We had a brilliant stay
A brilliant experience from start to finish. Bill was extremely helpful with any queries we had in the run up to our holiday.
On arrival we had a welcome food pack which was much appreciated as our flight was delayed and we didn't get chance to go to the supermarket that night.
The house was lovely and clean with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Everyone loved the pool area and the safety fence was a must for us as we had a 10 month baby with us. He made good use of the baby walker provided.
All in all a brilliant holiday. Thanks Bill and Nikki. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect and stress free at Emerald Sunset
The Villa was the best we have yet stayed in and this was our 4th visit to Orlando.
Our initial problem of no Wifi or landline was simply solved via an email to Bill and Nikki. This may seem trivial but was a major issue for our Autistic son who requires an internet connection in order to reduce his anxieties and maintain some routine whilst away from home. Thank you Bill and Nikki x
The Villa itself was clean and spacious. The welcome pack was fantastic and very thoughtful in it's content. We were particularly pleased at it including "diet" coke as we had a Type 1 diabetic within the party. Loads of pool and bath towels to use and an extremely well equipped kitchen with an enormous amount of crockery etc.
There was only one thing that the Villa is lacking and that is a pool net or skimmer to enable us to remove any insects etc from the pool. The pool was very clean but occasionally after a thunderstorm, there were a few bugs that we would have liked to remove before swimming.
$10 cash is needed to obtain the access card to the gated community but this is refunded at the end of the stay, luckily I had the cash on me upon arrival. I think this is fairly new as when we stayed 3years ago at a different villa (not as good) within Emerald Island, this did not occur. The access card is brilliant and very quick.
My parents enjoyed remaining in the Villa for a few days rest whilst the rest of us were out and about.
The way you resolved our minor issue within 24hrs was really impressive.
We will definitely have your Villa at the top of our list for our next visit to Orlando.
Thank you Bill and Nikki x

“A Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2015 NEW
The home was in a perfect location, well decorated, and met our needs. Close to everything like the grocery store, theme parks, restaurants, main interstate, and shops, which made it more convenient to save money by eating in. House was clean with more than enough kitchen utensils for our use. The pool and spa was great with the amazing color changing lights that made swimming at night a moment to remember. The only issue was the bushes near the front entrance that needed trimming or removal as they became a nuisance when entering and leaving the home. Definitely wouldn't mind staying again in the future. Had fun.

Happy Home from Home Pending
Wow what an amazingly beautiful home. The owners were extremely helpful prior to our arrival answering all of my anxious traveller questions.! Also freely recommending great restaurants and lots of useful holiday tips. The home was not as described,it was so much better! It felt like home as soon as we stepped inside,so spacious,immaculately clean,furnished with great care and the most comfortable beds we have ever ever slept in! And wardrobes that were just like Narnia! Lots of fresh bath and pool towels. A huge washing machine and tumble dryer that we put to good use. The pool was a welcome treat at the end of our 12 hour park days! The location was perfect. The Emerald estate and villa was like a little oasis of lovliness. It took only 10 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom entrance. We were so close to the attractions that it really wasn't an issue to pop home throughout the day. We would return to this beautiful villa in a heart beat. Cannot recommend tit highly enough. It was a pleasure to share this home & it made for a very happy family holiday.

If you haven't already booked this villa book it now Thanks to Bill (villa owner) for a fabulous villa fitted out with everything we could need. From a smooth and simple booking to a wonderful 2 week stay and thanks to Paul (house manager) on hand if needed. Located in a gated complex the area is quiet but just minutes from shops & restaurants - and a great supermarket where you can get all your food & drinks Universal, Disney, Seaworld, Busch Gardens, all the other parks & attractions are an easy drive Doesn't matter where you are going it's simple from the villa. This house has everything you need for your stay including plenty of cooking equipment if you want to eat in. It's clean and well maintained The pool is fabulous for chilling or playing around in Some of the other villas on the complex had their pools visible from the road as you walked/drove past but this pool is private 3 generations stayed here during this trip and everyone was very happy. Would definitely book this villa again

Great Home for our Family Vacation
The property was so spacious that our extended family of 12 had no problem all staying there together. We had plenty of towels and bedding. The heated pool and whirlpool were wonderful and there were even some blow up toys for the pool. We loved the screened in area; and the safety gates and the alarm system helped to make this a very relaxing place for us to stay with the kids. The appliances and some of the furniture were a little outdated, but we aren't fancy people so it worked fine for us. If we have the need for a large rental home in the future, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Great house, great pool, great location
We have stayed at Emerald Island many times, but this was the first time at this house. We were not disappointed. The house is lovely, it was clean and welcoming, and I was pleased to see that the cleaners had not spent hours twisting the towels into intricate shapes when they should be spending time cleaning. We have never stayed in a house so well equipped. It had more than enough mugs, plates, teaspoons, and towels. The pool is the nicest that we have seen, and the pool guy does an excellent job as it was positively sparkling, and a perfect temperature.The house is in a nice position, no houses immediately to the rear, so quite private. There are houses either side, but they were both empty while we were there. All in all, an excellent stay. One more thing, the management company are helpful and courteous. We look forward to staying here again, and have no hesitation in recommending this particular house.

Great house but not as advertised
I specifically searched for a rental with a gas grill. This listing mentioned a gas grill as a feature of this house. When we arrived I found a very small (personal sized) Weber charcoal grill with a rusted out bottom. I called Paul, the property manager, and was told that “the house never had a gas grill” and that “the listing must be old if it mentioned a gas grill”. He offered to rent me one for $45/week but I refused on principle. I was told the grill was furnished with the house and found that to be untrue. We removed our shoes at the front door when we arrived as we do at home. After walking around the house and unpacking our bags I sat down for a moment. When I crossed my legs I noticed that the bottoms of my feet were black with dirt, as were the feet of everyone else. This made us pay closer attention to everything else that the housekeeping staff would normally clean. The floors have been swept but had not been mopped for quite some time. We found that the upstairs shared bathroom (shower and toilet) had not been cleaned and several surfaces in most rooms were rather dusty. The sill of the large picture window at the back of the house is covered with dust, dirt, and spider webs. It was a rather disgusting view from the upstairs walkway. There were also bugs in the upstairs ensuite bathrooms to the right of the stairs. During our stay we found that the second floor stays very warm throughout the day and night. While we are used to keeping out air con set at 79F we had both units set to the lowest setting (74F) and were still sweating in the upstairs beds. I think ceiling fans in each room would help a bit. The kitchen was surprisingly well equipped and the house was very nicely furnished. A large amount of towels, pillows, and linen are available in each room. We were quite surprised to find that only one roll of toilet paper was furnished per bathroom. There was also no dish soap or dish washer detergent provided. That may be the reason we found several dirty dishes in the kitchen cabinets. We read in the welcome booklet that we should start a load of laundry for the housekeeping staff before we leave. The only problem I found with that is that no laundry soap was furnished. We thought these basic necessities should be included with the rental, especially toilet paper.

Dear guest, apologies regarding the gas grill, up to 18 months ago we did have a gas grill at the house but had to remove due to guests leaving it dirty so now we hire them in, we did not speak specifically about a gas grill in fact we did not speak to each other at all as the booking was made on- line through homeaway if you had mentioned the gas grill to me I would have had one delivered free of charge, it has now been removed from my site, regarding your dirty feet picked up from my floors, why did you not let my house manager Paul know about this when you phoned him regarding the gas grill , he personally cleaned the house with his wife that very day a quick call to him and he would of called round as he is on the resort all day looking after the other homes he managers, Guests left the day before you arrived and the toilets, showers and wash basins are cleaned and were clean, the large picture window is 25ft high and is cleaned every 4 months as you can appreciate there may be a few spiders webs but with it being so high ladders have to be brought in and is very dangerous up there, I don't think a few spider webs will harm you that way up The AC is set at its lowest 74 deg because people abuse the system in the past the units have froze causing thousands of dollars damage, last year we had a whole new system at great cost, the 2 master beds have fans in them I will look in to the others, but I think 74 deg is comfortable. Florida is a tropical climate so has lots of bugs and they come in through the bathroom vents but die as soon as they enter the home due to pest control which shows it works, if they were alive then that's the time to worry. Florida state law prohibits leaving cleaning materials in the home due to new guests not knowing what they are , from different countries etc also if a child were to drink or play with them unknowingly , we are allowed to leave a small amount of hand soap that's all so sorry about that We leave one toilet roll in each bathroom I know of some owners who do not even do that after all it's a self catering holiday but we do add the welcome pack Free Of Charge no other home owners do that I will remove the gas grill rental from my listing which was a genuine mistake if you had contacted me I would have sorted for you no problem I will not be changing my house keeper as they are the best I have had in 8 years ,being with them for the last 4 years I have had no complaints in that 4 years I'm sorry you had dirty feet
We absolutely loved this home! We were only there for 3 nights so we didn't get to take advantage of all of the ammenities this home had to offer. It was very neat and clean. It had everything we could have needed (even a high chair for our infant)! We would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay here again. The only negative thing during our stay was that you couldn't adjust the air conditioner to go below 74 degrees. We called the number for the maintenance and said they can't lower it below 74 because the air conditioner unit could freeze. If we had stayed longer, we may have pushed the issue because it does get hot upstairs.

Thanks for the message Kathy, we did have the AC unit freeze up on us a few times last year and had to renew the whole system at great cost, but i will look in to what can be done as soon as possible ,so thank you for bringing it to my attention ,Bill
expectations reached with a good bit more
Very happy with this accomodation, listing very accurate with regard to facilities etc. We were a mixed age party ranging from youngest 10yrs to oldest 63 yrs and all found it to be a wonderful place/location. Patio/pool area in constant use at different times of the day, very clean & smart. 15mins to Disney resorts made it an ideal spot for vacation. Restaurants/shops 5 mins drive away. Very happy with the villa layout/facilities etc. Would & will recommend this rental to friends without hesitation.

Our family have just returned from Orlando and we would like to thank you for allowing us to use your amazing villa. 8 adults and 4 children we knew we needed something special to survive 2 weeks under 1 roof and the excitement of Disney. What can we say. The welcome pack on arrival was so appreciated. The villa had every luxury and more. We couldn't find a fault. Everything that you could want was there. From the baby cot to the baby chair, the stroller, even towels to use around the pool. And what money can't buy. SPACE. My husband and i loved it so much we sent them all packing one day just to enjoy the surroundings. It was so peacefull and private (villas either side not rented out). We lounged by the pool and watched Herons walking on the lawns on the other side of the pool screens and saw a variety of wildlife in the area at the back of the villa.
Everyone has a good time at Disney but not everyone has the complete package. What made that for us was your wonderful villa. We shall definitely return

our stay at the Emerald Sunset was perfect it was very close to all the theme parks which made life easier for us , the drive to them was easy as well .It had some great restraunts in close proximity as well these included the Outback, TGI's crack a barrel to name just a few. The developement is very well maintained as is the house . The security men on the gate were also very friendly and a great help if you needed any directions or advice. The house is a perfect location within the site as you are not overlooked and both houses either side were not in use when we were there so it was very peaceful. It has a south facing garden so for sun lovers like me it was ideal.The house itself is very impressive it was a pleasure to stay there it had all the facilities that we needed and more it was perfect.It was very clean and well maintained. I would definately use them again it was nice to be able to email the owners whenever we had a question and nothing was too much of o both for them.I cannot praise this property enough we had a fantastic holiday made better by the high standard of living accomodation,i hope to return one day
