Emerald Island Resort townhome description

CHRISTMAS WEEK STILL AVAILABLE. The accommodation is over 1300 square feet. The townhouse offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs and a charming downstairs half bath. There is a queen size bed in the second bedroom and our kids room (Minnie and Mickey mouse) has twin beds.

There is a very spacious open plan living area and clean modern kitchen breakfast bar for sociable mornings! There is a nice covered terrace in the back that overlooks the large community backyard which enables you to keep an eye on the kids when playing outside. There is a balcony upstairs off the master bedroom which also has an ensuite private bathroom.

This townhouse is fully furnished, including all appliances including microwave, refrigerator, range, dishwasher, flat screens TV in every bedrooms and the living room, DVD players, Playstation 3 with movies and games, all linens including towels, beach/pool towels, pillows, bed sheets, and duvets. Also included is all eating and cooking ware. There is a full-size washer and dryer in the laundry room inside the townhouse. We also purchased brand new pack and play baby bassinet, a high chair and an upstair gate to accommodate families with babies and a portable bedrail for the little ones. Dining room table can accommodate 6 persons comfortably. WiFi free to our guests. We have a wireless phone and HD cable tv with HBO’s network. We also provide a Hotel standard, large safe to keep valuables away during your stay. We feature the latest technology in electronic door lock, so no keys to carry just your own personal door code. All you need to pack is your clothes and a toothbrush.

There is a pool 30 feet away, across the street with all services such as changing rooms, bathrooms and Jacuzzi. This pool is a lot quieter than the main pool at the clubhouse. This Villa is located close enough to the amenities for convenience, but far enough away for relaxing quietly on the balcony or a good night's sleep.

Emerald Island Resort is located in the middle of a preservation and has unique dolphins water fountains, dazzling landscaping, lakes and palm trees. Amongst the amenities are nature trails for jogging and biking through the community’s natural woodland setting, volleyball, tennis and basketball courts; playground, two heated pools, Tiki bar, massage, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center, cyber café and arcade. This location has access to fishing at either of our lakes, free of charge or by a nominal fee. Friday is Karaoke Night by the pool; enjoy the music while sipping on a drink.

The location is superb as it is secluded from the hustle and bustle yet being just off the 192W where all the best shops and restaurants are found.

Within a 5 minutes drive you will find several golf courses, miniature golf, supermarket, liquor store and shopping area. Within a 10 minutes drive you will find several restaurants, horseback riding, helicopter rides, as well as the beautiful historic town of Celebration, which is a must see. Only 5 min from Disney, 20 mins from Sea World and 25 mins from Universal and 10 minutes from the Orlando Prime Outlet Mall. This location allows you to take advantage of all that the Orlando area has to offer. The local restaurants range from 'Kid Friendly' to adult dining. Need a day off from all of the excitement? One hour away is the Beach (East coast or West coast). Only one hour on RT4 and you could be at the Hard Rock Casino (Las Vegas style gambling). Make your vacation memorable, visit, enjoy, but most of all be comfortable. The new attraction park LegoLand is located 55 minutes away.

The staff at the Concierge Desk will be happy to help you with your vacation needs, such as information and directions to restaurants and golf courses, discount coupons and park tickets, as well as transportation.

I am confident that you will have a vacation experience that will exceed your expectations.
Our rates are competitive, and reflect the quality of our home. Our home is very clean and well cared for by a small, family-owned management company that takes great pride in their work.

Since my family uses the home frequently, I am looking for guests that will treat my home as their own and return again-and-again.
