Formosa Gardens Villas in Orlando

Formosa Gardens Estates villas to rent, arguably one of the closest communities to Disney World. This luxury gated community has premium Orlando vacation rentals making this a very popular location. NO SERVICE FEES

Formosa Gardens Orlando offers an exclusive development of spacious, executive 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and even 9 bedroom vacation rentals and villas, so can cater for parties of all sizes. Most of our Formosa Gardens Florida villas have oversized plots, with fabulous pools, spas and extended decks. Many of the Formosa Gardens vacation rentals have the additional benefit of internal games rooms, and even home cinemas! The wide boulevards and palm fringed streets add to the spacious feel of this Florida community, we have homes on Spinning Silk Court, Sea Pearl Circle, Emperor's Orchid Court, Formosa Boulevard, Rising Sun Court and Plum Blossom Court.

Over 40 Formosa Gardens Villas to Rent

Built around a central lake (Star Lake), many of these Formosa Gardens Orlando villas have fabulous lake views. This executive community is an ideal holiday location for families. Formosa Gardens gated community is located off Kissimmee's Hwy 192 West at Mile Marker 4 - less than 3 miles from the Disney theme parks, so that you can be first in the gates each morning!

What makes Formosa Gardens sort after is the size and layout of the homes as most of them have larger than normal plots, pools and are general living space. There are also a number of custom built homes like St Georges Manor which is 8,500sq ft and has 8 bedrooms and 8 bathroom as well as a lagoon pool. It's elegant furnishing, home cinema, large balcony over looking the pool are unlike anything else you will find in a normal vacation rental and it's homes like this that make Formosa Gardens villas very sort after.

Once inside the gates of Formosa Gardens you will feel a world away from the busy Orlando theme parks but once you have had some chill time and are ready for dinner and drinks you have a huge choice right on your door step.

Restaurants near Formosa Gardens Kissimmee

Less than two minutes in the car on Formosa Gardens Blvd which is right out of the gates and you have an Outback Steakhouse which is an International chain restaurant serving steaks, obviously as well as fish dishes, wings and there famous Bloomin Onion.

Just a bit further down the road you have a sports bar called Buffalo Wild Wings which serves burgers & fries plus pitchers of beer and is a great place to watch all of the days games and has a great atmosphere when the matches are live so if sports are your thing this is the place for you. There is also a Red Lobster almost next door serving fresh seafood, clam chowder which I love, also steak and chicken.

Less than 5 minutes from our Formosa Gardens vacation rentals is Rolling Oaks Commons which has a number of restaurants as well as a Super Target super market. From Formosa Gardens head back out to HWY192 and then turn left and head about about a mile down where you will come to some traffic lights, either side you will see a number of restaurants. Located here you have Millers Ale House which is another sports / family restaurant which have nightly specials so check out menu to see whats cooking.

On the opposite corner is an Applebees, and then across the road you have Hooters which although you may not think so is family friendly. There is also a Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden, Rock & Brews plus a few other like Flippers Pizzeria and Sweet Tomatoes for salad lovers!

As you can see you have access to more than enough restaurants while staying at Formosa Gardens to keep everyone in the family happy. There are of course the usual fast food restaurants nearby like McDonalds, Taco Bell, Burger King for that late night snack or 4th meal as Taco Bell call it and if you love subs you have Subway right there, my favourite is a meatball sub!

We have put together a blog post listing over 50 restaurants along HWY192 in Kissimmee. It has all the details like phone numbers, links to menus and google / tripadvisor reviews. All of these restaurants are between mile marker 4 and 6 and just a few minutes from Formosa Gardens.

Whilst staying at your luxury vacation rental on Formosa Gardens should you need medical help there is a walk-in medical center at Formosa Plaza and a number of pharmacies nearby.

Villa Communities near Formosa Gardens, Florida

If you can't find what you are looking for from our Formosa Gardens villas or they are out of your budget below is a list of other nearby communities. We have over 850 Orlando villas to rent so I am sure you can find something to suit your needs.

Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Formosa Gardens

Directions via the 417 Toll Road

The closest airport to Formosa Gardens is Orlando International Airport (MCO) which is 28 miles away. There are a number of different ways to get from the airport to Formosa Gardens but I find the best way is via the 417 Toll road.

Once you have picked up your hire car and left the carpark look for the 417 South Exit Toll road. The sign should be brown and might also have Disney – Kissimmee listed on it. You may have to do a loop of the airport to get the right exit but just keep following the signs.

Follow the 417 South Toll road for about 16 miles until you see signs for Interstate 4 West (I4). The 417 toll road should cost about $4 so make sure you have some cash on you.

Join I4 West and follow for 3.5 miles then take Exit 60 onto the 429 North. Take the first exit off of the 429 which is Exit 1A (Sinclair Rd). This has a cash only toll booth so you will need exact coins. I think it is currently $0.75. Take the blue lane and chuck the coins in the bucket, be careful not to miss!!

Once you are through the toll booth go straight over at the lights and follow the road (Connector Rd) around for 2 miles. The Formosa Gardens Estate is on the righthand side. Make sure you have the gate code to get in.

Directions via the 528 Toll Road

If you would prefer to avoid a few tolls you can take the North Exit when leaving MCO. It would be sign posted as North Exit (528 Toll). Look for the 528 Toll (West) To I4 (International Dr). I don’t often take this route as the 528 is a busier road.

Follow the 528 Toll and then join I4 West. Stay on I4 West for 7 miles and take Exit 64. It will read 192 Kissimmee / Magic Kingdom, follow for a few miles and then take 192 West (Magic Kingdom / Wide World of Sports). Stay on the 192 West for 3.5 and then turn left on to Formosa Gardens Blvd. There is a Red Lobster restaurant on one corner and Harley Davidson on the other.

Follow Formosa Gardens Blvd for about 1 mile to the 4 way stop. Cross over and then the Formosa Gardens Estate in on the left. Again remember to have the gate code so you can get in to your Formosa Gardens villa.

Sandford International Airport (SFB) to Formosa Gardens

Again there are a number of ways to get from Sanford International Airport (SFB) to Formosa Gardens but I think the best way is via the 417 Toll Road (55 miles). When leaving Sanford airport you want to take 417 South and just follow it all the way until you reach I4. This is a toll road and will cost you around $9.

Join I4 West and follow for 3.5 miles then take Exit 60 onto the 429 North. Take the first exit off of the 429 which is Exit 1A (Sinclair Rd). This has a cash only toll booth so you will need exact coins. I think it is currently $0.75. Take the blue lane and chuck the coins in the bucket, be careful not to miss!!

Once you are through the toll booth go straight over at the lights and follow the road (Connector Rd) around for 2 miles. The Formosa Gardens Estate is on the righthand side. Make sure you have the gate code to get in.

Tampa International Airport (TPA) to Formosa Gardens

As with all of American there are a number of ways to get everywhere but I have hopefully listed the quickest way. It is 70 miles from Tampa airport to Formosa Gardens but it’s a very easy drive.

When you leave Tampa International Airport (TPA) you will be taking I-275 North / Tampa via the 60 East. Once on I-275 North towards Tampa look for the I4 East (Orlando) Exit 45B. It’s a very straight forward drive but the traffic can be heavy especially if you arrive during rush hour so take your time and don’t panic. You should get plenty on warnings for your junctions as they are very well sign posted.

Once you are on the I4 East follow this for around 55 miles and then take exit 60, which is the 429 Toll North to Apopka. Take the first exit off of the 429 which is Exit 1A (Sinclair Rd). This has a cash only toll booth so you will need exact coins. I think it is currently $0.75. Take the blue lane and chuck the coins in the bucket, be careful not to miss!!

Once you are through the toll booth go straight over at the lights and follow the road (Connector Rd) around for 2 miles. The Formosa Gardens Estate is on the righthand side. Make sure you have the gate code to get in.

We hope the above directions have helped you find your way to your Formosa Gardens villa and you have a great time in Orlando.

How far are the Orlando theme parks from Formosa Gardens?

 

Pool Safety Fences

Most of our Florida villas will either have door alarms on any exterior door that leads to the pool area or a pool safety fence surrounding the pool. Some even both, we have put together a blog post and video showing you how to use the fence. If there are no children in your party then you can take it out and rolling it up in the corner if you prefer but please put it back when you leave the villa, ready for the next guests.

It's Florida

The house was clean and had plenty of pool towels.

Exactly what we needed!

This beautiful home suited our needs perfectly during our brief stay in Orlando. It was by far the cleanest Vrbo (or any other home rental) that we have ever rented. Everything is exactly as described in the listing, and it definitely deserves the 5 star ratings that have been earned. We were in town for a funeral, and the house served as a place to rest and relax for the 17 of us that stayed. The kitchen was well equipped and the gathering area had plenty of space to spread out, talk, and catch up with distant relatives. The pool area and screened patio was a perfect place to finish up our evenings with more than enough seating for all of us. The bedrooms are nicely furnished and the beds are extremely comfortable. It was also nice to have so many bathroom options with plenty of hot water for the 17 of us showering daily. Did I mention how impressed we were with how clean everything was? This is a big house to take care of and the cleaning crew definitely does their job well. Kathy was very quick to respond via text/call to answer any of our questions before, during, and after our stay. We would definitely book this house again for a large gathering (or any other houses that Kathy and Andy manage). Thank you, Kathy and Andy, for helping to make our tough time easier by staying at your beautiful home.

Beautiful home in an upscale area!

The house was wonderful! We had 15 people in the house at one point during our stay and there was plenty of room for everyone. If you have a large group I would definitely recommend this property!!

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , Missouri

It was just wonderful! We highly recommend it.

We would like to share with you that we really enjoyed staying in your home for a week with our family of 16. The location was perfect, with everything we needed within 15-20 minutes of your home. Many grocery stores, restaurants and drug stores were just a few minutes away, Our entire family thought your home was wonderful. We made great use of the pool and outdoor area. We especially liked the layout of your home, giving everyone privacy if they needed it. Thanks for the great communication we had with you as we made arrangements to rent your home. We would highly recommend your property and would call you first if we take a trip like this again. Thanks again. We have a wonderful Christmas week here!

The house and our stay exceeded our expectations!!

The house was fantastic for our group of 6 couples that was here for a wedding. The house is conveniently located to nearby stores and most of the parks. The house had everything that we needed and the kitchen was supplied well enough with cookwarefor us to have all of our meals there. The pool was heated as requested and the outdoor grill worked well. The place was clean upon our arrival and we had no issues at all during our week that needed addressing. The house is spacious and we had a birthday dinner for 20 one night and there was plenty of room for all of us. One couple mentioned that we should make it an annual get-to-gether and get the same house. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!

Large Beautiful Home!

This was a beautiful home with plenty of space and amenities. It has a fully stocked kitchen, everything in it was well maintained, beautiful and very clean. The pool with extended deck and extra chaises was a great place to hang out and relax. We definitely recommend it.

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , UK

We will come back

The villa was perfect and it looks exactly as advertised. Top quality furniture, plenty of space for everyone. Spa and pool were great relax after a long day in park. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The house was very secure being in a gated community and alarmed. We enjoyed walking in the community and it was only a few miles to Disney. We will definitely be back to this villa!

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , USA

Exceptional Home!

Believe EVERYTHING you read in the home description and see in the photos...this house has it all!!! Beautiful! If you appreciate good quality, you will not be disappointed. The furnishings and decor are top-notch. Very comfortable beds and bedding. Plenty of seating in the living areas. Very well-appointed kitchen. Large pool/hot tub with abundant table/seating area. We were a party of 14 adults and there was more than enough room for us to all spread out with much room to spare. More king-size beds and en-suite bedrooms than I could find in any other home, but this home is perfect for the kiddos too (crib, strollers and high chairs provided, AND lots of plastic-ware in the kitchen!) Minutes to Rt. 192 and Rt. 27 with grocery stores, shopping & restaurants. A short drive to the Disney parks and other Orlando attractions, but trust me, you may not want to leave! The owner, Kathy, is lovely and very responsive to questions. Thank you Kathy, for offering such a fabulous home in a great location!

FAMILY DREAM VACATION!

Our three generation family had the most amazing spring break vacation in this home! We loved the five master suites that gave each family their own space. The children had their own rooms too! The pool area is dreamy and we ate almost every meal outside. The home is spacious and well equipped. We made day trips to Disney, Universal, several beaches, Gatorland and Cape Canaveral. It was always wonderful to come "home" each evening and relax in the hot tub. Because it was March, it was well worth paying to heat the pool. Kathy was wonderful and quick to answer any questions. We would HIGHLY recommend this home for your family vacation!

Wonderful Villa for a Family Reunion

Had a great time at this villa. Very comfortable and clean. Pool area was super too!

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , USA

Perfectly Positioned for Parks

We were delighted with the villa. It was much larger than the photos show. There was pretty much everything that you would need here. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels, plates, cups etc. We particularly liked the pool alarm. Kathy was very good to deal with and always responded to any questions we had. We would not hesitate to use again.

Gorgeous home and huge private pool/spa!

Our extended family stayed at this property and enjoyed every moment of our time there. The house was clean, spacious and well equipped. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the décor was gorgeous. But, we enjoyed the outside pool even more, providing entertainment and relaxation before and after visits to the Disney parks. There was also adequate space for each individual to find peace and isolation for reading or resting. Our kids really did not want to leave when we were to check out. Because the house is so close to Disney parks, sometimes we returned from a park in the middle of a day; we made/had late lunch at the home and then took a nap. After resting, we either went back to the park or just stayed home playing around in the pool and deck area.

Spacious and Comfortable

Beautiful home with lots of room! Very nice location close to the parks as well as restaurants and stores. Kids loved the pool and large lounge areas and Mickey kiddie pool was great for the little ones. Needed some help with the internet and they came immediately and fixed it for us! Great to have so many bedrooms on the first floor too. Nice place to stay and hope to visit again!

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , USA

Truly a home away from home....

This house was great for our group (3 families, 13 people). Location was perfect to all the Disney parks (all within 15 to 20 minute drive depending on traffic). Grocery stores and lots of chain restaurants close by. House was in good condition and the beds were very comfortable. Kitchen had everything for what we needed for breakfast and late night snacking. You will need to provide your own toilet paper, paper towels soap, garbage bags beyond the initial supply. Kids loved having the pool, the game room and so many TV's (in all bedrooms, media room upstairs and TV in family room downstairs.) House had a lot of room and we never even used the living room or formal dining room in the house. Kathy was very responsive to any questions that we had. Security deposit was promptly refunded. We would stay here again for sure.

Awesome large holiday home

My family and I had an awesome experience renting your home. It is nice when you find a person who is so easy to deal with and quick to respond to any inquires I had. You made the whole rental process so easy and I felt confident in the rental before I even seen it. Thank you for that, Kathy! The home was just as the photos showed, and was fully prepared for our arrival and we could have not asked for a better location for all of our "outings". We loved the pool and game room and the house is so central to all the shopping, restaurants and only 10 minutes to Disney - we absolutely had a blast! Can't wait to come back again and hopefully your home will be available for us then, too. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home and making our holiday even better!

A superb luxury villa in perfect surroundings

Having stayed in a number of Orlando villas over the years the quality, standard and size of this beautiful villa is exceed anything we have experienced. It's location within the immaculate surroundings of Formosa Gardens set the perfect first impressions that the villa itself comfortably lives up to. The seven large bedrooms accommodated our large family with ease, and the numerous areas to relax ensured we weren't living on top of each other. The ease of access to the surrounding resorts and theme parks is best shown by the ability to leave Animal Kingdom and be relaxing by the pool within 10 mins. The service provided by Kathy throughout simply tops off a wonderful holiday and overall experience. We would definitely stay here again should the opportunity arise.

Fantastic villa, pool and movie room

This villa was everything that was promised. It was very clean and well maintained and provided all the amenities we needed. It seemed that no detail had been overlooked; from kitchen equipment to baby gears. Our family of 14 was very comfortable with plenty of room to get together (or not) in the family room, home theater or pool area. Kathy facilitated the entire rental process and was very accommodating. The location was great. It is very convenient to the Disney Parks (about 10 minutes), restaurants and shopping. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to family and friends.

Great Stay

We just came back from a wonderful stay at this villa. Having never been to Florida, this sure did not disappoint. We had 7 adults and 7 children, ages 10 and under, in our group. The pool was a big hit for us all. Although the house is lots big enough, we ate most of our meals on the large outdoor patio by the pool. This gated community was nicely kept up. The local was superior, close to everywhere. Luckily, the weather was so nice during our stay. The communications with Kathy were straightforward and check-in/out were all well arranged and easy. Great rental experience.

Best Family Reunion!

We were very happy with the house: very clean and well stocked with everything we had needed. The pool area was superb and the deck was huge. We had a great time and disappointed to leave on the last day. We will definitely plan on renting it again next year. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay and relax! Our best family reunion in the New Year week!

Better Than 5-star Hotel

This was our second time staying here. The property is always clean and ready for us. The home was fantastic and the owner, Kathy, is very responsive and welcoming. There was lots of space to spread out, lots for everyone to do, and was overall very relaxing. The pool was particularly great because it had the kiddie pool for our two-year old which made swimming all the better! Also, it was nice after a long day at Disney to have a pool and hot tub to yourself.

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , UK

We enjoyed our stay very much!

My family loved this home. We have been to Orlando, Florida many times, and Formosa Gardens Estate remains a premier location and we regard this property as the best we have ever stayed at. It had everything we needed for an enjoyable vacation. The pool was enjoyed by everyone from young kids to older adults. We would stay in this home again. Thank you Kathy for letting us stay in your home.

Beautiful large home! Loved the extended pool/spa!

We arrived to a beautifully set-up home with all the amenities. The house is spacious and well-kept. Everything was in good working order. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub! The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The drive to the parks and restaurants was short. Lots of great memories!

Comfortable home in a safe community

We have stayed at a number of rental properties in the Orlando area, and this is without a doubt the most comfortable home we have rented. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. the pool and spa are fantastic. The location cannot be beat; you can't get any closer to the Disney parks and you have shopping nearby to help stock the kitchen. The owner was incredibly helpful and provided timely information related to our stay. The local management company was quick to solve any possible issues that might come up.

AWESOME Home in Formosa Gardens

This was the first time I had ever stayed at someone’s home instead of in a hotel while on vacation; all 14 of us from all over the county for class reunion. The house was even more than we expected, it met all our needs, and expectation. The house was furnished lovely, very spacious and had more than enough room to accommodate all of us. The beds were very comfortable even though we did not spend much time sleeping; all of us were extremely excited to see each other again. The pool was very, very nice, and the deck was large. There was more than enough seating for eating or just relaxing in the sun. We had planned to do a few outings but the house was so nice no one saw the need to leave, so we spent the entire time at the house. We did all of our own cooking, breakfast, lunch and dinner and had more than enough space to accommodate all the food needed to feed 14 people. The customer service was excellent and much appreciated. Kathy was a lovely person and dealing with her was a pleasure. The location was great, it was a 5 minute drive to special attractions, restaurants, grocery stores and more. I could not have asked for a better location, it was so convenient. At the end of our stay no one wanted to leave. I can't wait to start planning our next trip. Since I returned home I have spoken to everybody that stayed at the house and they all expressed they had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return to the house.

Ladies Reunion (50th Birthday Celebrations)

We had a fantastic stay, the house is spacious and clean as is the outdoors area and pool. The owners of the home were great from the very first contact we had with them they always responded immediately. They were patient with our money transfer and the delays from one country to another. Once in the house our queries were responded to immediately. All the beds are comfortable with beautiful linen and most bedrooms have a bathroom of their own. Supermarkets and restaurants are close by and a great little winery in walking distance with great food!!! This is a great house to stay in, in a lovely gated community. Highly recommend!

Very much enjoyed family reunion

I rented this house for my family reunion. There were 10 of us (3 families) and it was perfect. VERY CLEAN! The grandkids ranged from 4 to 16 and there was fun for everyone here. The teen boys spent a night watching movie and everyone loved the HUGE pool, spa and kiddies 'Mickey' paddle. We had dinners by the pool and had so much fun!! The process of checking in and checking out was super easy. Thanks, Kathy, I highly recommend this vacation home.

Roomy house

We booked this house because we originally had 17 people going but ended up with only 11 people. The house was definitely roomy enough for all of us. We really enjoyed our stay. The house is very close to Disney and other attractions. The pool area is very nice and has plenty of seating. We were able to all eat together one night on the pool deck. The house is very nice and met all of our needs. The owners are great to work with and very responsive to emails.

Great Home - Close to attractions

Huge house, great pool with large pool deck. Lots of room for our group of 12 (6 adults 6 kids). The kids were never bored, hours were spent in the pool and they used the theater room a lot. The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The drive to the parks and restaurants was short. I would definitely stay here again.

Best Time Ever

We were very happy with the house: very clean and well stocked with everything we had needed. The pool area was superb and the deck was huge. We had a great time and disappointed to leave on the last day. We will definitely plan on renting it again next year. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay and relax!

It was just wonderful! We highly recommend it.

We would like to share with you that we really enjoyed staying in your home for a week with our family of 16. The location was perfect, with everything we needed within 15-20 minutes of your home. Many grocery stores, restaurants and drug stores were just a few minutes away, Our entire family thought your home was wonderful. We made great use of the pool and outdoor area. We especially liked the layout of your home, giving everyone privacy if they needed it. Thanks for the great communication we had with you as we made arrangements to rent your home. We would highly recommend your property and would call you first if we take a trip like this again. Thanks again.

Great Stay

We just came back from a wonderful stay at this villa. Having never been to Florida, this sure did not disappoint. We had 13 children in our group, ages 10 and under. The pool was a big hit for us all. Although the house is lots big enough, we ate most of our meals on the large outdoor patio by the pool. This gated community is nicely kept up. We will be back.

Excellent

This villa was everything that was promised. It was very clean and well maintained and provided all the amenities we needed. It seemed that no detail had been overlooked; from kitchen equipment to baby monitor. Our family of 14 was very comfortable with plenty of room to get together (or not) in the family room, home theater or pool area. Kathy facilitated the entire rental process and was very accommodating. The location was great. It is very convenient to the Disney Parks (about 10 minutes), restaurants and shopping. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to family and friends.

Great Home

My family spent the last week in October at this property. The home is beautiful and very spacious. It was close to Disney and Sea World. The home was equipped for young children with bed, high chairs and strollers. The pool area was very nice. Kathy and Peter were very responsive and easy to work with. I would recommend this home for your family stay.

Fantastic house and pool

The house was absolutely wonderful. This was our 4th. vacation in Orlando and for the price, this was by far the best house we've stayed in.

Beautiful Vacation Home!

This beautiful vacation home accommodated our family group of total 8 adults and 6 kids very well. It was so nice that the house provided all types of baby gear, and the pool had an alarm system. The pool area was a great place to relax and play. All of us really enjoyed the hot tub and Kiddies “Mickey” paddle. Within the home we all had plenty of space…it was great to have 6 bathrooms, as we could get out the door to the parks in the morning that much quicker. The house was clean and well maintained…everything was in working order. We would highly recommend this home. Perfect for a group our size with kids.

Absolutely beautiful home!!!

When we visit Florida this is the only place we stay. The house is beautiful and clean. The pictures show exactly what to expect when you arrive. The house is located in a perfect location close to the parks restaurants and stores. Also the owners make rental a breeze and couldn't be more accommodating. All in all I can honestly say my family and I have always and will always stay here when visiting Florida!

The best house we have stayed in out of 10 homes

We have rented from Kathy and Peter for may years and this is the best house we have ever had. The home theater room was a huge bonus and the kids loved the pool. The bedrooms were large and nice with a least 4 master rooms. House was clean and close to the parks. Gated community , nice!!

Perfect Home for a Large Family Vacation

This home was beautiful and well-maintained -- all of the photos and descriptions were accurate. Our family gathering consisted of 16 people, ages 3-65. The pool and patio area became our favorite gathering place. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and accommodated all of our guests perfectly. The little ones and teenagers enjoyed the media room as well. They could enjoy their movie time, while the adults spent time in the family room. We thoroughly enjoyed are week stay and looking forward to returning again. Highly recommend this home for large groups/families. In addition, its very close to all the Disney Parks, major attractions and restaurants. Well worth your stay. Its a lovely home. Last, the booking process was very easy and the owner/property manager were very responsive to all our questions.

Beautiful home with newly expanded pool deck

This home suited our families’ needs perfectly. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here; it has ample space, high quality amenities and home theater. Also the pool deck has just expanded recently, and I have never seen such large pool deck of a vacation home. There is a lot of pool furniture around the pool. The family suite was very unique. Many of us felt we’d rather stay/play in the pool area or watch movies in home theater than go to parks. The property manager was excellent: responding to our phone calls and email promptly and making the house clean and neat. Highly recommended.

A Memorable Stay!

This house was perfect for our family vacation! We had a wonderful time! Loads of space for everyone, well kept home, great pool and spa, and fantastic new home theater with 70” smart TV/sound bar. The children were so excited that at one point they didn't want to leave the house to see Mickey!! The entire family fell in love and we are now looking to buy a vacation home here in Formosa Gardens.

Amazing House and Highly Recommend It!

WOW, we loved our stay at this house! From the first moment we entered all we kept saying is we wished our extended family had joined us, as there is so much room for the kids and adults to play and relax. All the rooms are spacious, clean and lovely. The home was more beautiful/gorgeous than shown in the virtual tour. You have everything you need, a fantastic private pool which is so perfect as we BBQ'ed while the kids swam. I know we could have stayed with another family/group as the house is so well designed so that the adults can be in the kitchen or lounge while the kids are in the games room or watching a movie in the family room. We so looked forward to coming back each and everyday after a long day at the Disney Parks. It was fantastic to return to the house to relax and open the fridge in the amazing kitchen and find some dinner then flop on the couch to chat about our day. This is the first time we have ever stayed in a vacation home and we will never go back to hotels. The owners were terrific and so gracious. The on-site property management was excellent. A truly memorable vacation and we will rebook it for sure.

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS HOME

We were very happy with the house, very comfortable, great private location yet central to all the theme parks/freeway/services, felt like a home not a rental location! It proved to live up to the virtual tour; in fact it was better in real life. In particular, the home was beautifully presented with high quality furnishings and the attention to detail cannot be faulted. The beds were extremely comfortable and the whole home was spotlessly clean! The décor was gorgeous, and lots of special little touches make this home a truly special place to stay. The pool deck is LARGE, and the pool itself is of a good size. We also liked the kiddies 'Mickey' paddle for our little ones to play on. Overall we had a great, relaxing family vacation and plan to return soon.
