About the Property
Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Why pay hotel room prices? Why pay higher prices when realistically most guests spend the days at the theme parks and the nights resting for the next day? Why pay for something you are not really going to get the benefit of? All guests enjoy the FREE use of the resorts facilities such as the two community heated pools (no hidden pool heat costs!), spa, fitness center, sauna and volleyball court. There are also nature trails, a picnic area and a kid's play area. FREE WiFi internet access is available from the comfort of our home or if you wish, a Cyber Cafe is also available (small fee payable locally) to catch up on all the e-mails!! Floodlit tennis courts are also available minutes from our home, and we provide 2 raquets with balls for your use.
Are you a light sleeper? Can you be sure of the location of your home if booked through an agency? Our townhome boasts a wonderful waterfront that only a very few on this resort can offer!
Located close enough to enjoy the resorts facilities, but far enough away to ensure you are not disturbed by them, especially when you are trying to sleep!
Fully air-conditioned, our house is fully furnished, including items such as a refrigerator-freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, oven and microwave, washer and dryer, not to mention all bed linens and towels (including 6 pool towels). Cable TV is provided, with TV's located in the lounge and ALL bedrooms. Ceiling fans have recently been added for your additional comfort to the lounge and all bedrooms.
A DVD player is provided should you be unable to find anything on the numerous channels, or alternatively, you may wish to challenge the children (no age limit!!) with our Playstation 2, complete with two games and controllers. If not, then perhaps a chilled drink relaxing after a day at the theme parks relaxing whilst admiring the view across the lake watching the numerous birds that frequent it and conservation area to the rear.
Maintained by our small local management company; no keys to worry about collecting or dropping off. View our website and guest book, and we look forward to hear from you.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Our names are Andrew & Rosemary and we have two children, Chloe and Mark. We live in the seaside town of Broadstairs located in the county of Kent in England, UK.
Why the Owner Chose Kissimmee, FL, USA:
When we flew out in October 2003 to view various homes and resorts, Emerald Island Resort had already sold all of their townhomes and were not being marketed. However, we decided to find the resort just to view it and to see what all the 'hype' was about as it was receiving such good reviews. Wow! As soon as we turned into the resort we knew why. Luckily for us a townhome sale had fallen through and the rest is history!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Watching an early morning sunrise over the retention pond with hot air balloons floating silently across! The resorts location is great as it allows you to go to the Disney reorts in the morning when they first open to avoid the crowds, returning for lunch and a swim...when the parks are 'heaving'. Then you can just return to the parks late afternoon when the crowds start to go home!
