Are you interested in buying a vacation home near Walt Disney World?  Purchasing a second home in a community like Emerald Island is ideal for people who take frequent Florida vacations, since you can enjoy all the comforts of home with the same type of amenities found in a 5-star resort.

Emerald Island Resort is conveniently located in Kissimmee, less than three miles from the Magic Kingdom and the other Disney parks. This prestigious, gated and guarded community is situated amidst 300 acres of lush landscaping, including a beautiful nature preserve that’s perfect for long walks, bird watching, and biking.   

Vacation home buyers and their guests enjoy a host of resort-style amenities including:

  • Gated entryway with 24/7 security
  • 2 Heated Community pools and hot tub
  • Clubhouse

Emerald Island has a variety of vacation properties to choose from, including three and four bedroom townhomes that area easy to maintain. Zoned for short-term rental, buyers can spend a relaxing annual holiday here, and then rent the townhouse to other vacationers during the remainder of the year. 

If you prefer a more luxurious vacation lifestyle, Emerald Island can accommodate you too. The resort offers spacious four, five, six and seven bedroom villas for purchase that come with their own private pool, spa and large covered lanai. Property management services are available as well. 

One advantage Emerald Island has over some other communities in Orlando is that it allows short and long term rentals of their properties.  When you choose to buy a vacation home in the community, you have the option of renting it out several times a year in order to recoup your investment.
