Welcome to 5 Star Villa Near Disney

Villa Front

WELCOME TO '5 Star Villa near Disney' - our 6 bedroom 5 bathroom private pool vacation home is on a top rated resort near the world famous attractions of Disneyworld, Florida.  

Why choose Emerald Island Resort? Aside from the close proximity to Disney & other attractions around Highway 192 and I-4, a villa vacation offers such great value compared to staying in a cramped hotel room. The Resort is just 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport at marker 5 on US 192 at the Formosa Gardens exit - we are just minutes from the magic!

We have owned homes in Florida for 20 years and have been visiting the sunshine state for over 25 years. In this time the vacation rental market has boomed. We realise our potential guests have thousands of homes to choose from and for many the temptation is to pick the lowest rate on offer. Everyone loves a bargain and we are no exception! We consider our rates to be more than reasonable for a home of this calibre - in low season a family of 12 could stay for around $20 a night per person to stay in our luxury home... we strive to maintain high standards to provide a great experience for our guests.  Take a look at our gallery to view or get in touch!

US Car Rental 

Please ask if you'd like recommendations for trusted and competitively priced US car Hire. They supply inclusive rates from the leading rental companies.  Do not book direct with rental company unless you are covered by suitable comprehensive insurance for US driving.

Things to consider:
GPS - it is often expensive to include with car rental.  Research mobile phone apps such as Navmii or you can add maps to your own hand held GPS and take with you.
Child car seats - airlines will allow you to take certain items such as buggies, car seats with you. Otherwise you will need to rent one from the car rental company.
Drinking and driving is a bad idea wherever you are in the world.  Uber and Lyft are plentiful and the best option for a night out - you are on vacation after all!

Feb 2022 Buesing Family, USA
The house is large with enough bedrooms for privacy as well as great gathering places. Every room is comfortable, decorated in fun Orlando design, and well stocked. The open first floor kitchen/entertainment/eating area is awesome. We also enjoyed relaxing outside in the pool and spa. The gas grill is a plus too. The resort is quiet and safe with nice amenities. For us, the availability of a tennis/pickleball court was perfect. We enjoyed it several days. The location is really convenient to Disney. Easy and quick directions to the parks and Disney Springs. There are also plenty of great restaurants nearby to try. Both the owner and manager were very responsive and thorough. We are definitely considering returning with more of our family. Thanks for a wonderful week!

"The 5 Star Villa Near Disney is an excellent choice for your Orlando vacation.  Our large family had a wonderful time at the Villa.  The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean.  The pool area is perfect and the safety net is nice for little ones.  The location is unbeatable.  Minutes from Disney, restaurants, and other activities.  We can't wait to go back."

Dec 2020 Da Rosa Family, Maine,USA

We have been staying in different villas in Emerald Island twice a year for about 12 years now, trying to find our favorite. I have to say, this villa is right there towards the top of our list. The living room was spacious with a decent size tv & comfy sectional and recliner, the bedrooms were clean & comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped ( though the addition of a griddle for pancakes & bacon would have come in handy) & the patio/pool/spa area was a great place to relax. Our only issue was that we paid a bit extra for pool & spa heat and the water was still to cold to swim the first 2 days of our stay. The owner did her best & turned the temperature up from her app in the UK but Florida temps were in the 60’s and the pool heater just wasn’t capable of making it warm enough to be comfortable enough to swim. Once the weather warmed up a bit the pool temp got better also. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would recommend this villa to family and friends. We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

'Beautifully furnished house!'

Hi Ann, Everyone had a great time at your rental.  The house was splendid.  Plenty of room and supplies for every occasion.  We were pleasantly surprised with all the extras the house came with like pool towels, more pats pans and dishes than anyone could use along with a spacious house to relax in for the entire family and plenty of secluded areas for quiet time.  We had a great time. Thank you. Cindy.


Hi Ann, We really had a fabulous time. My grandson who is only 7 can't stop talking about it and can't wait to go back !! Loved the villa again. Lovely, comfortable and spacious. Thanks again for the extra hours there. It was very helpful.

We just returned home from staying in this beautiful villa, and I wanted to share what a perfect home this is to vacation in. This villa is immaculately clean, spacious, and has every necessity you need from the pool towels to a fully stocked kitchen! The living rooms are well furnished and comfortable. We have stayed in other homes that had minimal supplies, but this home had all of the cooking utensils we needed to have dinner at home a few times and we loved using the barbecue! The bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious, and having so many bathrooms was very useful for our group of 14 people. The layout of the house made it easy for everyone to have their own quiet time when needed. Our favorite area was the pool and patio. All of us loved spending time around the pool during the day and when we came home from the parks at nighttime. There are plenty of chairs and tables for everyone to use. Ann was very friendly, helpful, and gracious to work with, and her hospitality made our vacation so enjoyable. This was the only home we've ever stayed in (and there's been quite a few) that had a hospitality pack waiting for us on arrival. This included bacon, eggs, juice, cereal, and milk. What a lovely gift to start off our vacation with! I will recommend this home to all of family and friends. We are already planning our next trip and are looking forward to staying here again soon!

Hello Ann, just a note of thanks for the use of your lovely house. We had 12 for a small period during our holiday and all had our own space when required. We have stayed in 10 villas and a couple of hotels over the last 15 years all lovely but for comfort and location.......

Back from holiday - seems like long time ago now. You have a great house in a perfect location - we were very happy there - hope to return in the not too distant future. Your instructions were very useful - tried most of the restaurants you recommended - many thanks for your help. I've passed your website details on to a number of colleagues who expressed an interest.
