Emerald Island Resort house description

Amazing six bedroom, three and one-half bath home is perfect for the one with discriminating taste. This non-smoking, pet free home is under new ownership and no expense was spared with the renovations made. It was repainted inside and out with designer colors and made to look like a model home. Florida’s tropical foliage and beautiful flowers bursting with color was the theme for decorating. Nicely appointed artwork, tapestry, silk plants, and a conservation view give it a true Florida flora and fauna feel, thus the reason this vacation home is lovingly referred to as

“The Greenhouse.” Arched window shelves hold plants and colorful glass art work which adds to the ambiance of this wonderful two story home.

The eat-in kitchen comes fully equipped and has unobstructed views into the dining/living area and patio/pool area with its open plan. Large ceramic tile flooring is in all the areas downstairs (except master bedroom). The dining/living area is awesome with the majestic two story cathedral ceilings and high arched windows. The master bedroom (with a king bed) is downstairs and has a spacious walk-in closet. A garden tub and separate shower are featured in the master bathroom. Also downstairs is a half bath with a pedestal sink and right next to it is a separate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

One of the two stairwells leads you to a secondary private bedroom suite with its very own bathroom and walk-in closet. The other stairwell takes you up to four additional spacious bedrooms. All bedrooms throughout the home have a flat screen TV.

The highly sought after south facing pool, spa, and patio area look brand new! Enjoy splashing around in the crystal clear water whereby the pool and spa were resurfaced with a beautiful beach colored mini pebble finish. Or just sit under the covered patio/lanai, viewing the pool/spa, lush conservation and wildlife all found in your backyard.

The garage was also newly painted and the floor now has a beautiful speckled epoxy finish. This now makes for a nice game room area which includes a pool table.

Just as the subdivision’s name suggests, Emerald Island is truly a tropical oasis. Nestled within a protected wetland, Emerald Island Resort is located just a few minutes from Walt Disney World and the myriad of other attractions that bring millions of visitors to the Orlando area every year. See below information taken from the resorts brochure.

Emerald Island Resort is manned and secured 24 hours a day has many community amenities. The entrance has the appearance of a five star resort with many large porpoise/dolphin statues and water fountains! The clubhouse has a gym facility, cyber café, game room, WiFi access, and concierge service. Just outside the clubhouse is a pool area with spa and cabana, sand volleyball court, barbeque picnic area, and a tot lot overlooking an expansive lawn and conservation area. Nearby are ponds with water fountains, hiking paths/nature trails, tennis and basketball.

The community is centrally located (about 3 miles to Disney) and minutes from popular US192, shopping, dining, and attractions. A shuttle service to the area’s attractions is available to guests for a nominal fee.


RESORT INFORMATION:

Emerald Island Resort is surrounded by a Conservation Area, it encompasses over 300 acres with 11 heavily wooded acres right in the middle of the community.

It is within minutes of Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. The airport is 20-25 minutes away. The beaches and the Kennedy Space Center are only about 45 minutes away! Busch Gardens in Tampa is only a little over an hour's drive.

Gathering Room
Meet those new found friends and discuss plans for the day or enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or coffee. Want to watch the game on a big screen? Then this is the place. Bring your laptop and surf the net via the open WiFi service available here. On weekends enjoy a complimentary Continental breakfast or a bagel. Hey how about a donut and coffee?


Internet Cafe
Can't tear yourself away from the information superhighway? Then get along to the clubhouse and surf the net, pick up those important emails and generally reflect on what you are doing on a computer when you could be out soaking up those rays or enjoying Emerald Island and Florida and all they have to offer.

Nature Walk
11 acres of natural woodland with a concrete pavement winding through it. A place of solitude and quiet, a place to reflect on the wonders of nature, away from the general bustle of today's busy lifestyle.


Tennis Courts

Costs: Charge for racquets hire and balls
For those budding MacEnroes and Nastasi's, here is the place to enjoy a game of tennis. Two full size floodlit courts await you.

Equipment is available for hire at the clubhouse, for a small charge. Who knows next time it could be Flushing Meadows or the Stella Artois or even Wimbledon!


Tot Lot Central
Location: Junction of La Isla Drive and Lido Key Drive
Climb, swing and play to their heart's content. This tot lot area is ideal for those kids and families based at the West side of the community.

Tot Lots Clubhouse
Location: Clubhouse
Give the toddlers a treat and those that didn't reach the height restrictions in the parks. Not quite the Hulk or Dueling Dragons, but with a child's imagination these items can be anything they want.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: We bought this home as a second home and enjoy the warm weather of Florida compared to that of our Ontario Canada home.

              Why Emerald Island Resort:
              Loved the floorplan. There are only a couple homes this style in Emerald Island Resort and we were fortunate to find this one. We looked hard to find a home that backed up to a natural conservation setting, where the view can't be beat; but still close to all the theme parks, dining, shopping, etc.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The high arched windows in the living/dining areas make it a very bright home. Two master suites make it nice for couples wanting their own private bathroom. It is a very short walk to the Clubhouse and community pool, tiki bar, work out room. Everything is right around the corner from Emerald Island: grocery store, restaurants, shopping, golf courses, theme parks, etc. The covered/screened patio with the southern pool/spa exposure makes it nice for sunbathers. Plus overlooking the conservation is simply an added benefit.
