Nature Parks in  Orlando

Nature parks are abundant in Orlando and with all year round sunshine, these make for an excellent day out (and one that is usually much cheaper than the theme parks!) A trip to one of these great parks can include swimming, hiking, a zip wire ride over stunning scenery and a close up view of Florida’s wildlife.

Meet the owners

Mark and DebbieHi. We are Mark and Debbie.
We chose a home in Emerald Island as it is a beautiful Gated Enclosure complete with Lakes and a Nature Trail, just 10 minutes from Disney and very close to the Nature Parks – you couldn’t be in a better location.

About Our Property

We wanted to try and create a themed home with a difference, and chose a
‘Hollywood Rock and Roll’ theme because it’s unusual, it’s luxurious and it’s a lot of fun!
We have tastefully decorated with amazing giant sculptures, original paintings and rock ‘n roll memorabilia.
