Most of our Formosa Garden 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.
Built around a central lake (Star Lake), many of these Formosa Gardens Florida 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. 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 newly opened 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 vacation rentals on Formosa Gardens 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.

On the opposite corner is an Applebees, and then across the road you have Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden, Logans Roadhouse plus a few other like Flippers Pizzeria and Sweet Tomatoes for salad lovers!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
