Luxury private accommodation on Disneys doorstep
The Emerald Island Resort Kissimmee is a gated and guarded private community that offers visitors secure and secluded vacation accommodation that just happens to be on the doorstep to Disney World, Florida.
Kissimmee, which is located south-west of downtown Orlando, houses some of the best natural attractions that Central Florida has to offer, as well as quick and easy access to some of the states most popular visitor sites.
Accommodation at the Emerald Island Resort consists of a range of different family-friendly, well-appointed vacation homes, each of which is stylishly furnished and comfortable. Each house is unique and features a varying number of bedrooms. Most are able to accommodate small and moderate sized families/groups visiting Kissimmee. The whole resort is surrounded by vast vegetation and lagoon waters, offering privacy first and foremost.
Many of the properties are villas, often with a picturesque outdoor swimming pool. Indoors guests can expect multiple bathrooms, bedrooms, a kitchen area which is ideal for those looking to self-cater, as well as a lounge/living area.
The resort itself also features a wide range of facilities for guests to enjoy during their stay. A number of community pools and spas are ideal for a spot of recreation, or to lounge beneath the Florida sunshine. The club sauna is a vital destination for those looking to enjoy a relaxing steam. Those that prefer a little for exhilaration can utilize the fitness center, volleyball or tennis courts. Other features include a games arcade and playground areas, both of which are suitable for children, and a Tiki Bar for the grown-ups.
Undoubtedly, the number one advantage to staying at the Emerald Island Resort Kissimmee is its proximity to Disney World Orlando. The world-renowned theme park is just three minutes away, making this one of the most convenient accommodation options for those visiting the various Disney attractions.
Slightly further away, about 15 miles, stands another of Central Floridas favored theme parks, Universal Studios Orlando. Like its Disney counterpart, the park draws millions of guests to it each year, all of whom are looking to enjoy the rides, games, shows, and parades. SeaWorld Florida is another attraction accessible from Emerald Island.
Those in Kissimmee that are not necessarily looking for the glitz and glamor of these theme parks will find a range of other attractions that may turn their heads.
The many lakes that are situated throughout this part of the state make an ideal backdrop for those that enjoy walking, hiking, and cycling, or even those that wish to partake in some water sports. The region is also home to golf courses galore, including Orange County National Golf Course.
Slightly further afield, the likes of the Green Swamp Wildlife Management Area offer tourists to the region a chance to see some of the natural wildlife and vegetation that has existed in Florida for centuries, much of which is now considered threatened.
Alternatively, Cape Canaveral and the Atlantic Coast lies just 60 miles to the east of the Emerald Island Resort Kissimmee, a distance that certainly makes a day trip an option.
