It is an ideal location for large family groups. Inside, the house is fully equipped to a very high standard to meet all your holiday requirements.

Each bedroom has a TV/DVD combo. The main family area has a 52 inch wide screen “smart” TV with a soundba and Blu-ray DVD player. The second floor den has an additional flat screen TV with PS2 (with a selection of games).

The house is fully air-conditioned and has a games room with a pool table and Foosball table (table football).

The house leads onto a shaded lanai with tables and chairs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are Gareth and Cathie. We first visited Florida with our children in 1997 and have been coming back ever since. What do we love about the Orlando area? The sunshine, the scenery, the theme parks for the children and the opportunity to relax by playing tennis and golf, swimming and visiting beautiful beaches and national parks. Nowhere helps us unwind like Florida.

Why the Owner Chose Emerald Island Resort:
We stayed in a number of different communities in the Orlando area before we decided to buy a house in Central Florida. When we first visited Emerald Island, we knew immediately that this was the resort for us. We set our sights on buying a house with a south facing pool area overlooking one of the lakes. We couldn't believe our luck when Casa Esmeralda became available. Not only was it our dream house, it was also in the perfect location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and quiet and the best possible view from the pool area.
