'*****The Emerald Villa' has been furnished to the very highest quality and comfort. With an unbeatable location, unrivalled setting and facilities, it’s not hard to see why it comes highly recommended.

The villa is in the prestigious enclave of the popular EIR. Its pool deck is screened with plants, and backs onto a lake with views across to woodland beyond. The pool has been custom designed with a rock waterfall, tropical plants and atmospheric lighting and music. There is also a gas barbecue grill.

The fully equipped kitchen comes with everything from waffle makers to juicers. There is a WiFi connection, laptop, telephones throughout and a laundry room.

We only use pillow top quality hypo-allergenic bedding - our guests often comment on how well they sleep.

This may not seem like a good thing at first glance but don't forget Florida is a tropical climate and there are chances of storms or rainy days during the summer.

About Andrew and Jo

OK, you got us... we like to holiday, we admit it, who doesn't?

But, from experience we found that rental homes never really met with our expectations wherever we went. We all work hard all year so what's wrong with a bit of 'real' luxury when you go away?

We looked at the Florida rental market after a few recreational visits and felt we could do better. A more enjoyable, higher class of experience that everyone deserves. As long as the location was perfect and it was appointed properly without cheap plastic fruit and sticky kitchens with woodchip furniture etc...

I mean how hard could it be?

Andrew and Jo purchased this villa in 2003

Why Andrew and Jo chose Kissimmee

So what we needed was something unsurpassable in every way! Something that has something for everyone with no quarter given, absolutely no compromise on quality, location or amenities. Real luxury! As advertised!

When we went to look at Emerald Island Resort they had just opened phase three of the development for purchase so we had a massive choice of plot locations and the homes on offer. What we chose in the 'Enclave' part of the resort was perfect - limited edition vastly oversized private plot, quiet location (no traffic noise!) all you can hear is the nature from the reserve -, lake views, Southerly facing pool - just perfect. Once we had that then all we had to do was design everything around it to make the 'Emerald Villa' the most unique and well appointed home in the area whilst offering something for everyone. To be honest given the location of the home together with all the upgrades, well, it wasn't too difficult, just expensive...

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful views all round especially from the massive private pool deck with waterfall and tropical plants -

The most amazing games room! -

4 private Master suites! -

No less than 14 HDTV screens -

The closest resort to Disney! -

The best spot at the resort! -

Maintenance is the most important thing to us and upgrades and refurbishments are a constant work in progress. -

If you could just stand outside now for a moment and do a 360 degree turn you would see that in action before you even enter the home to start your vacation! As they say in the US - 'It's a no brainer!'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from our guestbook at the villa...

'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! We’ll be back.'

'What a luxurious house… what a memorable experience.'

'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!'

'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!'

This vacation rental has been appointed with our needs as well as you, the guest, in mind. We think everything you could possibly need for an unbeatable vacation experience is provided, from a waffle maker to the HD TVs. However, if you do have something specific in mind that you think may not be available then please ask and we will tell you what we can do. We always ask previous guests if there is anything we can do to improve what we do or the facilities provided but we seem to have everything guests could possibly want at the moment and we have run out of ideas for improvements so if you have any ideas for improvements or additions then we would love to hear about it! Very little left for summer 2015, now taking reservations for 2016 and beyond...

The house is an absolute 10! Everything that is stated in the description is 100% accurate, and if anything, is understated. This place is completely fantastic. The house was well maintained and very clean. We did not have any trouble with bugs in any way. The game room was fantastic! The kids loved spending time in the pool and then playing on the Xbox 360's. The speakers and separate stereo system just for the lanai was great as well! The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. There is absolutley no way that anyone would not be impressed with this house! Everyone was very comfortable and there was more than enough room for the 11 of us that stayed. The house really did have everything needed. This is truly a turn-key vacation home! We could not have asked for anything better with all of the theme parks so close. For those who may be on the fence about doing this, let me assure you that you will not regret staying at this home. The owners are clearly intent on providing a great experience and are genuinly concerned with how each person's stay goes. The owners love what they do and it shows with this house. We are looking forward to the next time we can stay at this house!

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here, and it was at the request of our children. The location is perfect for visiting the parks, shopping and restaurants. The house is roomy and comfortable. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were plentiful. Any little inconveniences were attended to immediately. The kids and grandkids loved the pool and game room. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the owners for sharing their lovely home and helping us build family memories.

LOVED the pool. . .

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Villa was the perfect accommodations for our families Florida's Disney Vacation. When not on the Disney property our family of 15 spent many hours on the partially covered enclosed lanai with pool and enjoying the on property game room. The pool area had two tables and enough chairs to accommodate all of us. LOVED the pool. Loved not having any homes behind us, which gave it a private feel. It was truly a pleasure to rent from Jo and Andrew. They responded quickly to any questions we had. Property manager, Susan, was also quick to meet a few small needs we had during our stay. It was a great rental experience and would recommend this property.

At the resort clubhouse you will find all the things that you would expect at a 5 star hotel, including 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.

Its no wonder Emerald Island has become the most popular destination for the more discerning holidaymaker!
