The Diamond on the Island is a home built and furnished for the traveler who demands the highest standards. It is located in the exclusive gated resort of Emerald Island which is only 2 miles from Walt Disney World. Two stop signs and two traffic lights separate you from the Disney property.
Your magical vacation starts when you see the dramatic palm tree lined entrance with the beautiful foliage leading up to the security gates. Following that, you see the dolphin fountain and the very popular Clubhouse. Then as you meander down the street past the preserved park area, you begin to understand you are in a different world.
The Diamond on the Island has 6 bedrooms and 5 ½ bathrooms with a maximum occupancy of 19. The 4 Master Suites with King Size beds and their lavish décor with private bathrooms allow several couples to have their necessary privacy. The two twin bedrooms are furnished as a boy’s room and a girl’s room.
The owners of this splendid home took every opportunity to give you and your guests the ultimate vacation luxury in your temporary home away from home. The entire house is decorated in an elegant manner with upscale furnishing providing a warm and homey atmosphere for you to enjoy.
As you enter the house, you are presented with an absolutely beautiful Conversational Burgundy Sofa and 46 inch square Cocktail Table in the cozy Living Room. The floor here and throughout all downstairs rooms except the master bedroom is tiled that allows you and your guests to relax. A few steps in and you are at the elegant Dining Room with its Double Pedestal Dining Table and six upholstered chairs. In addition, the Grand Foyer Console with Marble top table provides just the right piece for the hallway going into the Kitchen and Family Room.
As you enter the Kitchen and Family Room area, you are overcome by the vaulted ceiling in the Family Room with its 18 feet long ceiling to floor drapes professionally made with the beautiful Waverly butterfly fabric and the 8 feet wide glass doors out to the pool deck from both the Kitchen and the Family Room. The two full size couches covered with comfortable microfiber cocoa fabric facing the 42 inch TV invite you to relax on their reclining end seats with your drinks kept on the optional pull-down center tables. The fully stocked Kitchen invites you to skip the fuss of going to restaurants and enjoy the pool and house.
You may want go out the door to the Lanai and spend some time soaking up the Florida sun. The covered 10 foot pool deck has ceiling speakers so you can enjoy music from the stereo on the Family Room Entertainment center without disrupting those inside. You could then step into the 15 x 30 foot crystal clear water of the heated pool or really relax in the 100+ degree Jacuzzi or you can just lay back on one of our comfortable loungers. The pool and lanai are south facing which give you sun all day long. Of course you can stay under the covered deck if you already had enough sun. The pool has an easily removable safety fence providing extra protection for young children.
Sleeping accommodations at the Diamond on the Island are exceptional. The Wood Panel Bed, the Leather Headboard Bed and the two Iron Beds are fitted with high quality bedding sets that make sleeping a true pleasure. The Antiquity Low Post Panel Beds in the twin bedrooms offer maximum comfort for busy children. All bedrooms have TVs varying from 24 inches for the first floor Master Bedroom to 20 inch TVs in the three second floor Master Bedrooms to 13 inch TVs in the Twin bedrooms. All bedrooms as well as the Family Room have ceiling fans to provide the ultimate comfort. For those who need help in waking, each room has a clock radio.
And for the person who must do some work, the Loft has a beautiful credenza/hutch combination and a very comfortable chair where any desk work with or without a computer can be done using the various connectors that include a standard telephone line with PC and power connections.
Last but not least is the Security System that monitors and controls many different actions. If any first floor door or window is opened, a gentle chime is played to alert you. When it’s dark and you walk in the front door, the Foyer light comes on for a few minutes. The lights on the garage exterior come on after dark and stay on for a couple of hours to assist you in locating your home away from home. Several other things are monitored and if any threat occurs, an alarm is sounded and the owner is notified. The house and all of its guests are securely protected against most types of problems.
