If it's the most luxurious vacation experience you require then you are looking in the right place. 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. We think it's the most luxurious and comfortable villa experience you and your family can find in the Disney area.
Emerald Island Resort is the most prestigious resort development in the Disney area. It is a secure gated community nestled on an upland tropical oasis area set within hundreds of acres of stunning 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 rare and exotic species. Over the creek runs the land bridge which is the approaching road into the resort where you will see many birds etc enjoying their natural habitat as you approach the friendly gatehouse keeper and security guard. Within the heart of the resort are 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 resort clubhouse you will find all the things that you would expect at a 5 star hotel. The reception functions much the same and offers information, the arrangement of transport or dinner tickets etc. The facilities of the clubhouse include a communal pool with tiki bar for early evening drinks before dinner, gym, sauna, cyber café, games arcade, tot lot for the younger guests and for the more adventurous, tennis and volleyball courts. A sundries shop and DVD hire etc is to be added in the near future as the property sales office closes once all the homes at the resort are sold.
The resort is the closest resort to Disney - so close that it isn't considered Kissimmee but part of Celebration, Disney's own community located to the south of the main theme parks, and being close to Disney and Celebration you can enjoy all the restaurants and amenities etc 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 quiet nightlife. The Outback Steakhouse, Carrabbas Italian restaurant and many more are all situated less than a mile away as is the nearest supermarket.
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 villa on a plot. Membership of the resort for you and 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.
Our 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 stunning 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. The slightly elevated position of the villa means that the views overlooking the trees are truly majestic and we feel really close to nature and gods garden. Birds and other wildlife also love it here and we have observed otters playing in the lakes.
THE POOL AREA
The pool area has been designed with the feeling of a tropical oasis to create a space worthy of the stunning 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. As fantastic as it looks now, it will only get better as the planting establishes itself and we add to it.
The huge pool deck 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 all day, 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 furniture for all is provided. It's the perfect place to break bread and drink wine as the sun goes down 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.
Our villa comes with 7 bedrooms, a games room, two living areas and it's very own private pool. It is a Palm Harbour style designed specifically for the Enclave part of Emerald Island resort. The villa is around 5 minutes walk from the clubhouse or maybe 10 if you take the nature trail.
The furnishings and décor we chose for our villa are in two forms. The dining and living room area and the main master bedrooms, with their 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 serious comfort and relaxation. The family room boasts rustic pine furniture and top grain leather sofas, the ultimate in leather and the perfect place to enjoy the PS2 or X-Box through the large HD "“ High Definition "“ DLP screen television and BOSE digital home theater system. This system rocks and a wide selection of DVDs, videos and games has been provided for rainy days or lazy evenings.
The garage has been converted into an air conditioned games room complete with air hockey, foosball and, most importantly, a Brunswick 8ft Pool table with centennial ball and cue set. Finished off with bar lights this room is a fun place to spend an evening with your family. The children's rooms also boast a PS2 and X-Box, and there is a range of board games to suit any taste. Guests have commented that there is so much to do inside the villa that it will be difficult to spare time to visit Disney!
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 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 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 with cable are provided in each bedroom.
The kitchen comes 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 - - - HD satellite TV!! ESPN Sports station!! Internet PC!! All added for 2005, and more planned, such as Xbox Live!!
We believe that you and your guests can't stay in better accommodation or at a finer location in the Disney area.
But why take our word for it? Below are just some of the comments we have had from guests...
"A great location for all there is to do in and around the Orlando area. The villa is great, very luxurious with great amenities. Great beds!"
J McDonald, Southport UK
"Andrew: We had a marvelous time at the villa. It was hard, at times, to get the children to go to the parks with all the activities they could do at the house.
We'll certainly recommend it to those we know, and hope to use it again when we return to the Orlando area.
Thank you again for all your hospitality."
Mike & Connie Sizemore, Columbia USA
"I wanted to touch base with you to say that we had a great trip and everything at the house was perfect. The kids truly enjoyed themselves and though we were out each day the evenings were kept busy with the pool, games room and videos. The location also worked out great for us as well. We have recommended it to some other people that may look at it for their next vacation. Thank you very much for the professional and courteous way in which we were treated."
J Smith, New Brunswick, Canada
"I would love the opportunity to stay in your villa should we visit the Disney area again, it met all of our needs and then some. We so enjoyed hanging out at the pool. I find myself smiling when I think about the fact that we had twelve people in your home and we never felt like we needed to hide because the floor plan was laid out so well."
"I am a little curious...what kind of mattress do you have in the downstairs bedroom? I would love to have one in our home!"
OWNER MSG - As far as we know Mrs Barry is now the relaxed and comfortable owner of a pillow top matress the same as the ones at the villa.....
ML Barry, Williams Bay, USA
"It has been a little while since we have returned from our vacation March 20-27 at your villa and I have been remiss in saying Thank you for the fine accommodations. Your villa was excellent and provided us a wonderful 'home base' during our week long visit. We found everything to be 'as advertised' and in many cases to be even better. Highlights were the awesome screened in patio area, the game room for the kids and finally what I am sure you have heard very often......... great beds!"
Todd VanDenAvond, Minnessota, USA
"Thank you very much for the rental of your house, we all had a great time, loved the pool and are particularly missing the comfortable beds."
P Twocock, Richmond UK
"Thanks for your mail!
We have really enjoyed our stay in the villa !
Everything was very good (fantastic location)!
Nice big house , very new and well equiped!
We will surely come back within 2 or 3 years and we will also promote the house to our friends!"
Carolien Lugt, Rotterdam, Netherlands
"We had a fabulous vacation. The villa was everything we expected and more... perfect for our large group. It is truly a beautiful home away from home! We enjoyed it very much. I trust the condition was left as well or better than when we arrived. If you are ever in need of a reference I will be glad to brag on your behalf!"
Sandi Bothum, Abingdon MD USA
"We had a lovely holiday and thought that your villa was fantastic. I will definitely recommend it to any of my friends that are planning a trip to Florida.
I hope you and your family are well."
J Curran, Chelmsford UK
"We had a lovely time, and enjoyed the house so much (even more than the parks) "“ there was plenty of rooms and space for all of us. The kids loved the pool, and we enjoyed sitting around with our margaritas. Wish I was sitting there now . . ."
"Thanks so much for your hospitality and the use of your beautiful home!!"
K Kroeger, Colarado, USA
"We have had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. This was our first trip to Orlando with the whole family and we'll be back!"
E Studnik, Miami, Florida
"We've been visiting homes in this area for the last six years and yours has been my favourite so far! There is nothing you have overlooked. From the games room to the beautiful pool (love the waterfall "“ nice touch!) to the comfortable beds at the end of a fun-filled day. We all had a wonderful time and look forward to sharing your home again!"
L Caron, Ontario, Canada
"What a beautiful house! The perfect vacation home. We had a great time. The furniture and décor are beautiful, the pool and fountain beautifully designed. Just perfect. Plenty of room to spread out and unwind after long days at the parks. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!"
K Russo, New York
'As mentioned we had family staying in two other villas in Emerald Island and despite them staying in similar sized villas they were amazed by the quality of the furnishing inside yours!! And also the large lanai and pool area!! They were all very jealous of us and were trying to get us to swap!! Many thanks again!'
Karl & Jenny Buckle, Nottingham UK
'Hi Jo and Andrew-
We just got back from our stay at your Villa. We had a great time, the place is so nice, everyone enjoyed it. You really have taken care to be sure that things are comfortable for anyone that visits your place. The safety measures with the pool/patio area were so great with the small kids- we really liked that. Thanks for allowing us to stay there. We left you a note in your guestbook as well. But since you won't see that for a while figured I send an email.We had a wonderful time..and would definately go back!
Again thanks for sharing your place with us, we really had a great family vacation.
