The Marriott Retreat
Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Emerald Island Resort is surrounded by a conservation area and encompasses over 300 acres with 11 heavily wooded acres right in the middle of the community. As you pass through the 24 hour guarded gatehouse the playful dolphin fountains welcome you to this unique resort. It is surprising that such beauty is only 3 miles away from the Disney resorts and even closer to a vast array of restaurants and shops.
Emerald Island has achieved its premiere resort status by using its beauty, amenities and location, location, location. The villa will meet and surpass your families expectations as it certainly has that added magical charm and warmth about it..

The home is known as a Magna Bay villa. This is ideal for a maximum of ten people (six adults and four Children).
Has privacy screening at each end of the Lanai and at the lower level around the pool, this gives total seclusion when under the Lanai. The pool deck at the rear of the pool was extended outward by an additional eight feet (40 ft wide) to ensure that the sun is there all day. Whilst on the other hand, if you prefer just sit in the shade, then the Lanai area which is some 40ft by 10 ft caters perfectly for this as well. The pool is heated and is 30 x 14 ft. with a raised Spa with waterfall, that can be heated separately. There are six sun Loungers, ten patio chairs and a large parasol, coupled with two tables, to enable al fresco dining, comfortably for ten people. The pool/spa lights have also been programmed to change to seven different colours from Cool Blue to well almost anything. The Lanai, has two ceiling fans installed to keep you cooled during those hot balmy nights. Also there is an external speaker system to play your favourite music, either via the ipod docking system incorporated in the family room surround system, or via the DVD/CD player. Additionally, there is a Barbecue and George Foreman pedestal grill on hand should you choose to enjoy an outside cooking experience.
Living Areas - Ground Floor:
The Family room has a vaulted ceiling with a sumptuous L shaped leather sofa. It boasts a 50" Plasma Screen for the cable TV network. This is connected and played through a Denon multizone theatre receiver sound system. Adjacent to the Family Room is a sitting/dining room. Here you can sit and quietly read or just simply relax on the other of the two L shaped leather sofa's, away from the distractions of the television. There is a formal dining area which seats six, but for breakfasts and light snacks, we would suggest the use of the extended breakfast table in the kitchen which has great views over the pool and conservation areas. The kitchen is fully fitted with every type of appliance (dish washer, microwave, ceramic topped cooker, coffee maker, ice machine, toaster, waffle maker, liquidiser, smoothie maker, electric mixer and more than adequate crockery).

The Central Florida region
Home to the world famous Walt Disney Resort, plus Universal Studio's to name but two.
Weather in Orlando Florida is one of the area's biggest attractions with its year-round mild weather. Mid-Florida's subtropical climate has long been a strong draw for tourists and residents alike. At the heart of the "Sunshine State," the area's average annual temperature is a comfortable 72.4 degrees. Average annual rainfall amounts to over 50 inches per year, keeping Central Florida lush and green throughout the year. Prevailing winds are southerly at nine mph. The average elevation of the region is 127 feet above sea level.
Orlando is positioned in the centre of Florida, with easy access to both the Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches and only an hour away from The Kennedy Space Centre.
Most rental villas advertised on Websites and in Brochures are located on the US 27 which is situated at the end of the US 192, this is some 8 miles plus to Disney. As these have been rapidly increasing over the last few years, the US 192 to the parks is becoming more congested and thus adding to the travelling time. Emerald Island on the other hand is situated less than 3 miles from Disney ensuring stress free travel to the parks. Also within one mile we have Formosa gardens plaza with Winn Dixie, TGI's, Red Lobster, Outback, Carrabbas, Cracker Barrel, Subway, Chinese take away and just in case needed a walk in doctors Healthcare centre. Plus a Publix (5 mins) , Super Target (5 mins) and Walmart (10 mins). Once you have stayed in Emerald Island, you will not want to stay anywhere else!
A visit to the Orlando area would not be complete without a visit or two to one or more of the numerous shopping malls that are located all over the place.
Florida Mall – located at the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail and Sand Lake Road. Department stores such as JC Penny, Sears, Saks, Dillards and many smaller shops together with a Food Hall
Lake Buena Vista Factory Shops – located on 535, south of 535/536 intersection. One of the smaller outlets but nevertheless well worth a visit.
The Mall at Millenia – Just off the I 4. Well worth a visit if only for window shopping. Department stores include Macy and Bloomingdales. Other up market shops include Gucci, Tiffany and Cartier. Wonderful eateries including a Cheesecake Factory .
Old Town – situated on the 192 just past I 4 going eastwards. Many small speciality shops. Worth visiting in the evening.
