About the property

Lovely 4 bed villa on the prestigious Emerald Island resort, with private pool

Our holiday home is in the perfect location for a fantastic family vacation, only four miles from the Disney parks and within easy reach of golf courses, shops and restaurants. In a sunny corner of the award-winning Emerald Island Resort, which for peace of mind is gated and guarded, the villa is only a short stroll to the club house, gym, pool and tennis/basketball/volleyball courts, and close to the community’s nature trail for a relaxing family walk.

The resort club house offers comprehensive facilities, including free WiFi, park ticket sales and information, office services, amusement arcade and complementary tea and coffee throughout the day. There is also a lovely tiki bar serving drinks and snacks by the pool.

The villa has four bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en-suite), with a sunny, private pool and spa, with pool safety fence. It will sleep up to 8 adults, plus a baby - a cot and high chair are available free of charge.

Our dining table seats 6, and there is also a breakfast nook, which has another dining set that seats four. For your entertainment, the games room is equipped with an air hockey table and dartboard, and there is an iPod dock, cable TV (HBO, ESPN, etc.), DVD player and free WiFi throughout the villa, along with board games.

The house is fully accessible for wheelchair users, with an accessible bathroom. On request we can also provide a shower seat for guest use.

Please note that we have a minimum 7 nights' stay policy. Shorter bookings will be considered, but may subject to an additional £60 cleaning charge.

Why Louise Wilson chose Kissimmee

We fell in love with Emerald Island Resort the first time we stayed there. It offers everything for a great family holiday, with beautifully maintained facilities set in relaxing tropical gardens. It's location is fantastic, being such a short drive to all the theme parks - those extra ten minutes saved in driving make all the difference with a car full of tired children desperate for bed!

When we got the opportunity to purchase a villa at the resort, we jumped at the chance and are so happy with our house, and we hope our guests will be too. There is sun on the pool all day and the whole place is bright and well-planned. We find it hard to leave at the end of our visits!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to 'thank you so much' for letting us stay in your lovely villa these past 2 weeks. We all have had a magical holiday taking back lots of happy memories.

Another 'thank you' for letting us have a late check out today which means we can all chill out today.

Next time we visit Florida we will get in touch with you and will certainly recommend this villa to our friends/family.

Lovely villa, well equipped and close to the parks. Had a fantastic 16 night stay here with family!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely and the owner was very helpful and quick in answering all questions. Close to all the parks, about 10 mins drive to the gates of Disney and about 20 mins to universal parks.

The villa was lovely, well equipped and clean throughout.

The pool and jacuzzi were a nice temperature.

Would highly recommend this villa. We had a fantastic stay.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 10 day stay in Louise’s Villa for a family vacation. The villa comfortably accommodated four adults and two children and is very close to all amenities and Theme parks. Initially the pool was cool, but Louise quickly rectified the pool temperature and the kids were excited to use it each day

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. We always recommend pool heating between October and March, so I'm glad that once it was switched on you were able to enjoy the pool. Please do come back and visit us again!

Great Villa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in Louise home. The owner and her property managers were awesome. I had problems with my pool and Ms.Louise and property managers was on it. The only thing I did not like was the pillows on the bed but , oh well I just did not use them😊? The next time I'm in Emerald Island I will most definitely be using Ms. Louise home if it's available. I will recommended this villa to anyone. Thanks Ms Louise and property managers!!!

Car: recommended

Only four miles from Disney theme parks, Emerald Island is located at the centre of everything, providing a great base to visit all the parks easily, whilst also being able to enjoy a comprehensive range of amenities. There is an enormous number of restaurants within a five minute drive or less, catering for every taste, or for home cooking, Target and Publix supermarkets are less than four miles away.

There are plentiful leisure activities close by, with several high quality golf courses only a short drive away, and fantastic shopping at the nearby Premium Outlet malls, and Florida Mall. Local shopping includes a wide range of gift shops, and outlet shops. Ross and TJ Maxx are less than three miles away and offer discounted designer options.

The resort is only a short drive to Celebration, which offers a village feel, with shops, cafes and restaurants, including a fantastic ice cream parlour that also serves home made fudge and chocolates. Celebration hosts a weekly farmers market, which is definitely worth a visit.

Lake Louisa state park is only 20-30 minutes drive away. Here, you can cheaply hire bicycles or kayaks, or choose to walk around the miles of nature trails, spotting wildlife including gopher tortoises. The lake has a small natural beach, with picnic and BBQ areas - ideal for taking a break from the parks.
