Property description

You will love our four bedroom luxury home just three miles from Disney in the gated Emerald Island Resort. The moment you see our resort you will know that you are in the right place. As soon as you enter our home, your children will fall in love with the themed decor and you will feel like you belong there.

Our home is less than one block from the resort clubhouse. The clubhouse offers basketball, tennis, a gym, sauna, jacuzzi, bar, game room and pool. More importantly, our front door is less than three miles from the front gate of Disney! Our home away from home is not only private, but it is conveniently located so that you are minutes away from Target and other shopping and surrounded by new restaurants.

The two master suites are perfect for two families sharing a vacation or for older kids. One suite is decorated in a soft blue while the other has a Jungle theme. The other bedrooms have a Disney Princess theme and a Pirate theme. Both of these kids rooms have two twin beds. We designed the rooms around what we know our children like, therefore we are certain that yours will love them also. We can comfortably sleep 8 guests.

Our pool table is tournament sized and inside rather than in a hot garage. Those not playing pool can enjoy our Wii games on the large flatscreen. Our house has full wi-fi throughout, a television in every bedroom, and two more televisions in the house--one in the living room and one more in the entertainment room. Our heated swimming pool is surrounded by top of the line, comfortable patio furniture.

We have recently (fall 2013) installed a real 6 person hot tub that gets hot. Not like the 'spas' that are attached to pools that are only warm. Come home from the parks, hop in the hot tub, enjoy the stars and let your stress fad away.

Our home is full of features that will serve your family well.

Beautiful, lush vegetation and woods right behind our house.

We are only a half a block, easy walking, from the clubhouse.

Free us of all the amenities of the resort such as a sauna, fitness center, Tiki bar, 2 heated pools, spa, volleyball, tennis courts, playgrounds, and more.

Restaurants incude staples such as Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, Buffalo Wild Wings, TGI Fridays, Chuy's Mexican, Texas Roadhouse, Carraba's, Macaroni Grill, Cracker Barrel, and Sweet Tomatoes.

Less than 10 miles to Premium Outlet Mall.

Honestly there is too much to list. My wife and I did this off of the top of our heads. You are in the center of it all.

Let me close by saying that we are not your typical vacation home owners. We purchased this home because we love making memories with our children here. We are committed to your loving the time that you stay here, and will do what we can to make this the absolute best vacation that you ever have. Our goal is to have the people who stay with us become our friends and repeat guests.

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Hello! Thank you for considering our home! We are a little different from most of the owners in this area because this really is our only home, not a second or third property. This is it. That is why everywhere you look you will see tender, loving care. So, who are we? We are a normal, fun-loving couple with 11 kids...yes, you read that correctly. We have 11 children. That is why we know what kids like, and why we love Disney. My job required that my family move out of the USA, so we packed up our bags and moved to South America where we rent a small home way up high in the Andes Mountains. We purchased this home in Emerald Island so that we can have an anchor. It is our connection to 'home' in the States. We vacation here. Our older children who now live in the States (WV, DC, and FL) can also vacation here. In a nutshell, we know the importance of a great vacation, probably more than most. Every two and a half years we come back to the States with the entire family, and this is the home we come to. Disney in our backyard, fun all around us, and memories to be made. I know that you will love our home because we sincerely want to do whatever it takes to make this vacation your best one ever. Your children deserve the memories.

Why Emerald Island Resort:
We have been coming to WDW since 1992. I honestly do not know how many times we have been here. Until this year, 2013, we always rented. We discovered a few little 'secrets' to having a great time. First of all, staying close to the property, but not on the property. Being close means that you don't spend precious vacation time on the road every day, yet being off property gives you tremendous freedom in food and other choices. That is another key to having a great time. We wanted a place that was close to shopping (Target is a few minutes away) and an easy drive to multiple food choices. A third reason that we chose this property was the resort itself. We wanted activities for everyone to be able to participate in on those 'non-Disney' days. Our resort has a beautiful hiking/jogging trail, gym, pool, hot tub, game room, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and a sauna...and that is just the beginning. Emerald Island is also uber-safe with 24/7 guards and its one-way in/out access. The final reason...just look around. It is beautiful.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we were looking for a property, being close to Disney was a huge bonus, but not the only thing. We wanted privacy as well. That is why we chose a home that backs up to the woods. Even when the resort is full, you feel like you are in your own little resort when you open the back door and sit by the pool. We also wanted a place that 'felt' like home--but had the pizazz of Disney. You will agree that the soft colors, the paintings, furniture and rugs all give our home the feel of a 'home' not of an institution or even a museum. In order to get the pizazz, we asked our kids how they would like their rooms decorated. That led us to the pirate, princess and jungle themes of the bedrooms. Our central location also makes it an easy and fun drive to the beach. If you want waves, head east one hour for Cocoa Beach. If your children are younger and you want calmer waters with a family beach, head west to Clearwater, about an hour and a half away.
