Detailed Description of This House
The Diamond on the Island is a house built and furnished for the traveler who demands the highest quality standards. It is located in the exclusive gated resort of Emerald Island. Two stop signs and two traffic lights, a 10-minute drive, separate you from 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. Then you see the dolphin fountains and the very popular Clubhouse. As you meander down the street past the preserved park area, you begin to understand you are in a beautiful, elegant and secure 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 private baths allow several couples to have their necessary privacy. The two 2-twin-bed bedrooms and additional full-bath are furnished for the younger guests of your group, with fun, colorful and playful decor.
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 a beautiful Burgundy Sofa and a Cocktail Table in the cozy Living Room. The floor here and throughout all downstairs rooms is tiled that allows you and your guests to relax, except for the Master Suite that has a high-quality diamond-patterned rug to provide the appropriate elegance for the Master Suite. A few steps in and you are at the stunning Dining Room with its double pedestal dining table and six high-backed upholstered chairs. The Grand Foyer Table with Marble top provides the majestic piece for the hallway leading 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 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 leather couches facing the 50-inch LED Smart TV invite you to relax on their power-reclining seats. The fully stocked Kitchen invites you to skip the fuss of going to restaurants and instead enjoy the pool and house.
The 40-foot wide roof over the first 10 feet of pool deck (Lanai) provides an outdoor area rain or shine! The two ceiling speakers allow you to enjoy music from the Family Room stereo without disturbing those inside possibly watching TV. You could then step into the 15 x 30-foot crystal clear water of the heated pool or really relax in the 105-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, with the option of staying under the Lanai for shade. 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 4 king-size beds and 4 twin-size beds have extraordinarily comfortable mattresses and are fitted with high quality bedding sets that make sleeping a true pleasure. All bedrooms have Samsung LED HD Smart flat screen TVs. All bedrooms, as well as the Family Room, have ceiling fans to provide the ultimate comfort.
For the person who must do some work while away, the Loft has a beautiful desk and a very comfortable chair where any work, with or without a computer, can be done. Lastly, there is a Security System that monitors and controls many different actions to make your stay more comfortable and most importantly secure.
The exquisite Emerald Island Resort Clubhouse of 4,000 square feet has a heated pool and spa, fitness room, sauna, Tiki Bar, gathering room, computers with free unlimited internet access and a video game room. Outside of the Clubhouse there are two playgrounds onsite, a volleyball court, basketball courts, tennis courts and a nature walking trail.
I am the father of 7 and grandfather of 9. Disney trips started in 1976 and continue to this day. It's hard to find a place with more vacation options than the Orlando area. We saw this development being built in 2000 and decided this was the ideal place to own a short-term rental house our children and grandchildren could use while renting it out in between. The Financial Crisis of 2007-8 brought much grief to this community. As Treasurer and President of the Homeowner’s Association, I was able to keep the association’s cash flow at a healthy level and thereby preserved the vital landscaping services. The location is almost perfect at 3 miles from Disney and the landscaping is outstanding. Animal Kingdom is 10 minutes away, Disney Hollywood Studios is 15 minutes and the Magic Kingdom is 20 minutes away. Some say the landscaping at the resort is like an extension of the Disney landscaping. The house provides everything imaginable to have a great vacation experience.

We had 4 adult couples and 4 grandchildren...we could ask for nothing more! From the time we opened the door until we set the alarm when we left everyone had a great time at this house. Lot of great extras, like all the TV's, great leather automatic reclining furniture, nice pool w/spa, fully stocked kitchen needs, too many extras to list, I could go on and on. Bottom line, this will be my first choice any time I am in the area. You cannot get any closer to Disney without staying on their property. John Beck (owner) has put a lot of care not only into the property, but the way he deals with clients....John also gets a 5 star rating! Thank you John!

After 15 years, we know what our guests need and we provide it for them! From our porch to the main gate at Animal Kingdom, it's 3.9 miles. Just 2 stop signs and 2 traffic lights which takes about 10 minutes to drive.
Mr Beck called us on the first day to make sure everything was ok. A small issue with garbage and ac was addressed the same day. The home had everything we need and Mr Beck even had a cheat sheet in the home of things to do and when is the best time to go to the theme park. Look it over, it’s true, As for the home, no complaints here. This home was big enough to cater to my large family. The place was cleaned and I didn’t see not one bug around. This home you should consider if you want a nice quiet place that is close to everything, parks , food stores etc.

My husband and I took all of our kids and Grandkids to Florida and we rented this beautiful home. It is well cared for, has a beautiful pool and hot tub, in a beautiful and secure gated community and just minutes away from all the major attractions as well as in the middle between the Ocean and the Gulf. We all had our own bedroom and private bath. Our little kids could take naps, and the older ones and adults could visit and the kids could all go to bed and it was safe for the adults to use the hot tub and spend time together. We cooked many meals here; it tasted better and saved expense and hassle of eating out with tired small children. You can contact the owner if any questions come up; he is fantastic to deal with. We have used this home twice and have had friends use it as well. There is no better way to stay in the Orlando/Kissimmee area. This lovely home will meet your very highest standard; I would rate it with 10 stars if I could!

We had 17 people that stayed in the house with ages ranging from 2 to 60 and we all had plenty of room with our own privacy. Each king bedroom has its own bath. We were able to cook at the house so that we could save on food expenses. The kids loved the swimming pool and hot tub. They were happy just to stay there and not go do other things. The house is conveniently located to Disney and Old Towne. We stayed in this house last year and this year and we hope to go again next year. The owner takes care of any issues that come up immediately and is easy to work with. I would suggest if you are going to do any serious cooking for a large crowd that

It was a pleasure staying at this house again! This was our second time returning. John is, as always, the best! The first time was with my family several years ago. This time, it was with our friends - All couples. They loved the place and were super impressed. John called after we checked in to make sure that everything went smoothly and all was good with the house. During the week, two of our couples returned to the house earlier than we wanted to and was unable to get into the house after using the keypad. After several attempts, the keypad froze and they couldn't figure how to get back in. Since we were out at Disney Springs, I called John, spoke to his lovely wife. John was out but he called me back within 5 minutes and walked me through with instructions on how they could get back into the house. I couldn't ask for a quicker reply than that. I recommend John's house to anyone considering staying in the WDW area. It's convenient to all the parks and his place has all the comforts of home and then some.

Renting this vacation rental home was the best choice our family could do. Since day 1st when we decide to start looking for a vacation rental the owner Mr. Beck, got back to me and made all the process so smooth and easy to handle. He is the most pleasant and trustful person to deal with, always willing to give the best information and advises to have a great time and enjoy every minute in our stay. Our 1st time in Orlando and with a party of 30 pp wasn't easy to coordinate, Mr. Beck also refer us to another friend of his with more rentals available to fit all of us. Arriving to the house was so easy, great location. Everything was nice and clean. SPECTACULAR! Very comfortable, nice furniture all over the house besides all the upgrades and extras like pool toys, strollers, plates ...you name it and you will have it right there. Our experience couldn't be better and I'll totally recommend this house to anyone and we are also planning to go back soon in the future. THIS HOUSE AND OWNER REALLY DESERVE MORE THAN 5 STARS REVIEW. Never hesitate to rent from him, great price, great stay, and great vacations. I cannot thank you enough for been part of our dream come true!! Be sure we will rent from you again and we will send you more family.

Not only was this home beautiful on the outside, but when we walked in we were blown away. The house is very spacious, clean, and decorated beautifully. We had two families stay here and we had tons of room. The children and the adults just loved the pool and hot tub, and the added feature of having speakers on the back deck so we could enjoy music while swimming was great! Loved the community and how close we were to Disney, and shopping. We will be staying here again. We made some beautiful memories with our family in this beautiful home.
