About Emerald Gem
Every effort has been made to include everything you are likely to need for a comfortable vacation, from travel adaptors and hairdryers to board games, books and a selection of DVDs. Although fully air conditioned the bedrooms also have ceiling fans for added comfort. Both master Bedrooms and the Queen Bedroom have TVS and alarm clock radios. The villa also has wireless internet and is fully baby friendly with everything from sterilisers to a tots toy box.
From the moment you turn into Emerald Bvld. you know why Emerald Island is one of Orlandos most popular resorts. Surrounded by water and lush tropical woodland this gated community is close to the 192 highway with its many shops, restaurants and amusements and yet far enough away to be your own tropical paradise. The on site facilities include tennis and volley ball courts, nature and cycling trail and two children`s play areas. The club house has complementary internet access, a fitness room, Sauna, coffee lounge, communal pool , spa and tiki bar. All this and only a 5 minute drive from the Disney complex and 2 mins. from the major highways for those trips further afield.
As you open the door to Emerald Gem you will find a spacious Games Room to the right with a Pool Table, Foosball Table (Table Football for UK guests ) and a Dart Board with plastic tipped darts. Two Bikes are also provided for you to explore the nature trail within the Resort itself. A complete remodel is planned for the Games Room in November 2014.
To the left we have the Queen Bedroom with a 5ft. Double Bed, Two Night Stands and Table Lights, small 19” TV, Radio Alarm Clock and a walk in Cupboard with ample hanging space.
Continue on and the Family Room to the left has twin Sofas, a 40”Smart HD TV and a Sony surround sound system with a selection of DVD`s. The ideal Room for adults to unwind away from the heat of the day or the kids being noisy in the Pool.
Turn right into the Bath/Shower Room with ample Towels and a Hair Dryer and then into the Master Bedroom. A quiet room with a 5ft. Double Bed , Twin Night Stands with Table Lights, a Hair Dryer and Radio Alarm Clock. This Bedroom also has a 40” Smart HD TV.
Along the Hallway are 2 Themed Twin Bedrooms sharing a Jack and Jill Bathroom. The Bathroom has the benefit of a Bath and Shower and is Mickey Themed.
Younger children will love the Disney Twin Bedroom and the older ones the Jungle Bedroom. More extras are planned here in November 2014. These rooms are both close to the Master Bedroom so small children need not be far from Mum and Dad at night. Both Rooms have 2 Twin 3ft. Beds.
Left into the main Family Room and sink into the Sofas overlooking the Pool and Deck area. Enjoy the view over the Pool into lush woodland. Here you may enjoy a Movie or just watch one of the many TV channels on the 40” Smart HD TV. There is a Music Centre and a selection of CD`s for you to enjoy. There are also Books and Board Games.
From the Family Room stroll into the spacious Master Bedroom with its 5ft. Bed, Twin Night Stands with Table Lights and Radio Alarm Clock and Hair Dryer. There is ample storage space and another 40” Smart HDTV . The Master Bathroom has a walk in Shower, a Roman Bath and separate WC. Just through the Bathroom there is a walk in Dressing Room with ample hanging space and floor space to leave your suitcases.
The fully equipped Kitchen is situated in the centre of the home next to the Dining Nook which has a six seat Table and Chairs. The Kitchen has everything you are likely to require if you wish to cook indoors with a large Oven, Microwave, Fridge Freezer with Ice Maker, Coffee Maker and Kettle. Even a juicer for those lovely Florida Oranges. The chance of you eating indoors though is a bit slim when you can enjoy the Florida sun outside or the cool of the evening with a BBQ and a glass of wine.
The 24ft. Pool may be lit for evening use and heated in the cooler months if required, The Spa has the added advantage of a rapid heat facility for those days when the perfect day can be rounded off with a soak in the hot Spa. There are also 4 Loungers, 4 Chairs and a Table on the Pool Deck together with a cloths dryer to hang up those wet swim suits and trunks.
The view to the rear of the Pool and Deck area overlooks lush tropical woodland which adds privacy around the Pool. A pool cover on a roller is available to conserve the pool heat overnight if required.
To the front of the Villa are 2 off road personal parking spaces so there is no need carry any shopping more than a few feet to the front door.

5 out of 6 people recommend staying here
Unfortunately, we weren't happy with the cleanliness of the house. Light bulbs were burned out.The floors had obvious debris all along the baseboards and around the beds. This might be some of reason for the constant ants, which we went out and bought ant traps and Raid for, but they were always there. We even moved a mirror to the garage because there were so many ants behind it. All of the counters were cleaned, beds neat and plenty of clean towels. It was the dirtiness of the floors and ants that made the stay undesirable. We have stayed in this development before and really enjoy the location!
Maybe it is how fast families are in and out that there isn't enough time for a proper cleaning but we didn't have this issue with the last house we stayed at and for the cost I expect more. I will look for another rental company next time we visit as we like the development overall.
A beautiful well maintained property in a well managed gated community with great facilities. I only wish we had had a bit more time to enjoy them. Theres a good choice of restaurants and shops nearby, and the drive to all the parks was straightforward.
We felt the pool could have been a little warmer, although it didnt put the children off spending hours in it.
The property had everything we needed and more. It is located close to Disney, the supermarket, and local shops / restaurants.
We had a great holiday, our stay in Emerald Gem far exceeded our expectations. The house could not be in a better location 10 minutes from Disney and less than a mile from shops and restaurants where every taste was catered for. the House is furnished with all you need nothing has been overlooked. My children had a fantastic time enjoying the pool and games room. Well done to the owners the aptley named Emerald Gem it is indeed a Gem of a property. I have recommended to all our friends and family. Definitely worth another visit.

We searched the net for months to find the perfect villa and found it here! Awesome villa!! ! The Villas location couldnt be better! It was ( as stated) with-in 2 miles from Disney and only a short drive ( 20 mins) to Universal!
Only problem was that the kids(10 and 12) loved the pool and hot tub that much they wanted to rush back from the parks to Jump in!!!
The Villa was very clean with every need catered for. We didnt use the games room( Brilliant!) simply because we didnt have the time!!
The Hot tub heats up really quickly and the coloured lights in the pool are very relaxing ( and romantic! ). Only thing was we felt the space was wasted on us ( Family of four) We only needed three bedrooms!
Only one very tiny complaint .There was a notice asking for the b.b.q to be cleaned after use. We were a bit suprised because it was in a terrible state when we opened it up and clearly had not been used ( or cleaned) for some months!!
After walking around the parks ( for hours) in the Searing heat The Emerald Gem was a welcome relief to come back to and really felt like home!
If you book this villa we hope you enjoy it as much as we have! We will be looking to booking it again if we decide to re- visit Orlando again in the future!
