Emerald Island Vacation Rentals

Emerald Island Resort - Upmarket Vacation Rentals

Don't let the name fool you, Emerald Island isn't an island at all, instead it's a prestigious gated and guarded full-facility vacation rental resort located on Disney's doorstep. A short drive to shopping and dining, this ‘island' serves as a relaxing haven from the hustle and bustle while remaining central to everything the world's most popular vacation destination has to offer.

A Tropical Paradise

Surrounded by a Conservation Area, Emerald Island Resort in Kissimmee encompasses over 300 acres with 11 heavily wooded acres located at the heart of this stunning vacation rental community. The winding, palm-lined street that leads to the impressive colonnaded entry to the resort gives a taste of what's inside. The playful dolphin fountain provides a dramatic sense of arrival to this unique vacation rental enclave. These man-made architectural delights combine with the beauty of nature to make what must be the most impressive entrance in Orlando.

Once inside, you'll immediately realize that you have entered a very special and magical place. The lush tropical vegetation which is surrounded by a ring of woodlands and wetlands is breathtaking. The spellbinding landscaping of indigenous plants and seasonal flowers contribute to the feeling that you have been transported to a tropical paradise.

Entertainment Without Leaving the Resort

After passing the stunning entrance rotunda, you will sweep around to the clubhouse with a reception area which sells newspapers and sundries and provides information for guests staying at the resort. Owners and guests alike can utilize all the facilities provided within the resort, which include the clubhouse sauna, fitness center, games arcade and Internet Cafe. There are 2 luxurious heated community pools and spas with free WiFi around the pool areas. Sun loungers and a large deck area are free to use and make it a perfect place for a days sunbathing with alcoholic drinks available from the poolside Tiki Bar. Also volleyball, tennis courts, basketball facilities, tot lot playground and clubhouse and much more. Opposite the clubhouse is a wooded walking trail for walking, jogging, or cycling that winds through the community's natural woodland surroundings. The lakes in and around Emerald Island are well stocked with fish and fishing is permitted anywhere on Emerald Island as long as you have your own equipment - word of warning though is keep to the boardwalks and not to wade into the water, otherwise as you will find anywhere, where there is naturally deep freshwater in Florida, you may attract the wrong attention from an alligator.

Emerald Island Vacation Rental Homes

The Emerald Island community has all the amenities of a 5 star resort, but with the comfort and convenience of your own private rental villa with pool, townhouse or condo. This community of upscale detached homes and rows of attached townhouses offers a peaceful haven with outstanding amenities. The upscale accommodation includes condos, 3 bed townhouses, as well as homes with private pools. The luxury villas range are available with up to 8 bedrooms, allowing groups of up to 16 guests to stay together in one villa reducing vacation costs for all. Whether you are looking for a single villa for your family or two or more homes to accommodate a larger group, your needs can be met in Emerald Island. Every Emerald Island vacation rental home is privately owned and locally managed so all you need to do is relax and enjoy your holiday. If you would like to vacation in a little privacy and peace, this is the place to be and it's so close to Disney that you can enjoy the evening firework displays from the patio of your villa while sipping a cocktail. Or, you could visit the parks in the morning, come back for a dip in the pool and be back in the parks for dinner and fireworks.

Dining

All dining preferences are well catered for within a mile or two. Some local eateries include Bonefish Grill, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabbas Italian, TGI Fridays, Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze, Longhorn Steakhouse, Applebee's, Millers Ale House, Texas Roadhouse, Red Lobster and a number of pizza parlour. There are also the usual fast food restaurants like McDonalds, Burger King and Taco Bell.

Driving

Thirty minutes to Orlando International Airport and located less than two miles from Disneyworld. There are 10 golf courses as close as a 5 minute drive. Cape Canaveral and Atlantic beaches are about a seventy-five minute drive. You can easily reach the Gulf Coast in an hour, and take advantage of some of the best beaches in the whole of the USA. The white, powder soft sand beaches are blissfully tranquil, lapped gently by warm clear waters, and surrounded by beautiful scenery. The rural parts of Florida through which you will travel in order to reach the beaches are teeming with wildlife, especially the mangrove areas.

Climate

Orlando enjoys a year-round moderate climate. The sun shines almost all year and the temperature rarely drops below freezing. The climate makes visiting the theme parks a more than comfortable experience. The winter months generally provide the most pleasant temperatures, where the rainfall is low and even the cooler nights warm up into beautiful days. (But it's still a good idea to pack a light jacket.) The coolest and driest month of the year is usually January. Probably the best time of year to visit is between March and May during which time temperatures will have warmed but won't be too stormy, too hot and too humid.

July through September are the rainy season in Central Florida. During this period, the temperatures can often rise into the 90's and afternoon thundershowers are a common, with some being very heavy. Fall sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperature and rainfall start to decrease. On any given day, it can be hot enough for a day basking in the sun or cool enough for a light-weight jacket.

Getting There

Kissimmee welcomes visitors from around the world and getting there is always easy. Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO), just 30 minutes from Kissimmee. Additional scheduled airline flights arrive at Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), less than an hour's travel time away. West U.S. Highway 192 is Kissimmee's primary tourist corridor; brightly colored Guide Markers along the way make it easy to navigate. From Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® to Celebration Ave exit # 2. Keep right to take ramp towards US Hwy-192. Continue on Hwy 192 W for 4 miles. Turn left onto Formosa Gardens Blvd. After 0.9 miles, turn right onto Funie Steed Rd. Continue for 0.6 miles and take left into Emerald Island Resort.
