This spacious 6 bedroom family pool home has been upgraded and decorated to appeal to all families - and offers great value, with upscale furnishings, all the appliances and amenities you could want, as well as space and comfort that you won't find at twice the price in a hotel.
When you come to stay, be sure to take time-out to visit the Emerald Island clubhouse. The Emerald Island resort surrounds an exclusive, fully featured resort clubhouse with many amenities for guests to enjoy. There's also a secondary resort pool, spa and cabana for the exclusive use of guests staying in the town homes (those guests can use the main clubhouse if they wish).
As you enter you immediately find yourself in a luscious sub-tropical resort, with driveway that stretches toward a manned security gate house and through to the stunning entrance rotunda with a Dolphin Fountain at the center, sweeping around to the Emerald Island resort clubhouse and facilities. The club house has a reception area which sells newspapers and sundries and provides information for guests staying at the resort.
There's a guest lounge where you can meet other families visiting Orlando and staying in Emerald Island. The kids can enjoy themselves in the games room, or on the video arcade games provided, and you can "keep in touch" while on vacation with the IT center that provides high-speed internet access for guests.
Choose to relax under the Florida sun at the Emerald Island resort pool with gazebos and a Tiki Bar, luscious landscaping and comfortable deck loungers. Or sit in the bubbling community hot-tub and chat with other guests staying at Emerald Island vacation homes.
Additional amenities include: pool table, games, game room, coffee maker, free use of community/resort amenities, securepass lock, darts board, free starter pack, bedrooms carpeted, deck loungers, themed kids bedrooms, shaded lanai, window treatments, 42-inch led/lcd flat screen HDTV, ceramic tiled floors, park land views, flat-screen TVs in bedroom, kitchenware, spa (un-heated), hairdryer(s), table soccer game, child pool safety fence, range/cooker, upscale window treatments, free long distance calls, iron and board....Read more

The home was so immaculate and the rooms were decorated so nicely. The home was so spacious and no one wanted to leave at the end of the stay! The Villa Direct team are so great to work with and were always available to answer questions and prepare us for our vacation. The lay a way plan was a great idea because it gives alot of families time to pay. I have recommended Villa Direct to others and my family and I would stay at one of their resort homes again in the future. Read more
Thank you for your review of Emerald Island Haven, following your stay in June 2010.
We were delighted to read that you found the home so well decorated and clean on your arrival and that the family found the space provided to be so good for their vacation.
We are always there to help our guests and try hard to make sure that one of our team is available to help guests from each department in the business - 24 x 7. We were particularly happy to hear that you found the Law-Away-And-Stay plan so helpful in budgeting your vacation. Did you know that you can also "lay-away" your tickets and car hire now?
We hope that you'll be coming back to the Disney area soon and look forward to welcoming you once again.

The property could have been cleaner throughout and does suffer from wear and tear.
A lack of cooking trays etc for the oven.
I had to request twice that the pool be cleaned properly which it finally was. Read more
Thanks for your review of Emerald Island Haven, following your stay in late August 2010.
We are sorry that you felt that this home was not cleaned to a high enough standard and that it suffers from wear and tear. Following your review, we performed a detailed inspection. Each property is subjected to a deep clean at least once per year and the homes are also cleaned immediately after a guests departure. We have forwarded your comments regarding the lack of cookware to the owner for them to replenish the cookeware, utensils and kitchenware for future guests.
As you say, we responded to your calls on consecutive days regarding the pool. Unfortunately, some guests don't realize that in Florida, sand in the corners of the pool does not indicate a dirty pool. When it rains, the sand that sits on the top of the pool enclosure is washed in to the pool, and then gradually goes in to the drain. As you are aware from the pool technician, on both visits the pool was found to have no particulate matter and was also chemically balanced.

This was our first family holiday in a private villa - and certainly will not be our last! We will have no hesitation in returning.
Our children 11, 8 and 3 were blown away with the pool area, which was private enough for even me to don my bikini!!
We had hours of fun in the games room too.
Spotless, well decorated, superbly located - we couldn't have asked for more! The pictures don't really enable you to gain a full appreciation of the place.
Thank you for your recent review of Emerald Island Haven, following your stay in June 2010.
We are so pleased your stay was "Superb" as you put it. It is our pleasure to make your vacation one to remember! Our Emerald Island properties are beautiful and we are happy the whole family was able to enjoy all the amenities it provided.
Having a great experience is what we are all about - whether your first family holiday or 5th we are here for you no matter what!
Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next stay with us again.
