Formosa Gardens Orlando Villas in Florida

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.

Very enjoyable stay!

My family of 9...5 adults and 4 kids thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Easy drive to the parks and local shopping. Kids especially enjoyed the pool and hot tub. They decided that this is the best way to have a vacation...no more hotels! Just a couple of hiccups upon check in...no toilet tissue or paper towels, but all it took was 1 phone call and housekeeper quickly delivered them. Overall, owners were very easy to deal with. Will definitely recommend to friends and family and would stay here again if we come back.

AWESOME PLACE !

My brother and his family and my parents and my family all shared this house, and what a great time we had. More than enough space for everyone, the pool, the hot tub and the movie room were most used area by the kids. While the rest hung out in the Living Room. Great place and will definitely stay here again when planning a trip to Disney -

Theater, 6 bathrooms, ample seating & a hot tub!

We rented this home so that our whole family could stay together under one roof. Our group included our adult children with their toddlers and preschoolers, plus our teenage and young adult children. The house was perfect for everyone! Having 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms made it a pleasant stay for everyone. The pool and hot tub were popular with all ages. of course. I also loved that there is ample indoor and outdoor seating for a large group. I rented a 6 bedroom home in Orlando a couple of years ago and it had a small dining room table and an even smaller breakfast nook table. This home has a breakfast nook table that seats 4, plus bar stools that seat another 3, plus a large dining room table that seats 8. The family room has 2 full size sofas and a loveseat. And there are so many tables and chairs on the lanai that no one was ever in need of a place to sit! But I think the biggest perk with this home is the theater room. Everyone loved spending time in the theater room. It is an amazing space to watch movies in, and we enjoyed a couple of movie nights, but we also found that it was a great place to hang out in anytime. It's a soft and comfortable area, with the carpet and soft recliners, so the little kids loved hanging out in there. We put on TV shows for them and they were happy campers. It was great to be able to have the family room area and the theater room available so we could have sports or an adult movie on in one area and children's programming in another. Another big perk with this home is that the owner responds quickly to any questions or concerns. For example, when I emailed her to ask if there was a bed rail available for our use, she immediately ordered two bed rails and had them delivered to the home before our arrival. This home is beautifully decorated, yet comfortable. It is very well maintained. There are built-in baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs--they retract completely so they are not an issue if you do not need them, but they are great to have when you do! The kitchen is well stocked and we were able to prepare a couple of meals for our large group without any problem. The home is located in a beautiful neighborhood and is very convenient to the Publix grocery store and Super Target as well as to the Disney Parks. There are also many, many restaurants within a two mile radius, so dining out or getting take-out is very easy. I highly recommend this home--you will not be disappointed! Response

A great stay

I rented this house for my bridge team during a recent championship held at the nearby Dolphin Hotel at Disney. We were one couple and 5 men in their 30's all from foreign countries. The house was great, everyone had a large room with private bath. The contact people were responsive and helpful. No complaints, I definitely recommend this property and owner, who was very easy to work with.

This house was FANTASTIC!!

This house is FANTASTIC! It was super clean and well maintained. This house is ideal for an adult setting. The layout is perfect for 10 adults and 2-4 kids. The transformation of the garage into a theatre room was unique and wonderful. Our party of 10 adults found it to be perfect especially the theater room for watching a movie, a show or sporting event.(especially football). We rent a house at least 2 times a year and we will definitely be staying here again!! The owner is friendly and easily accessible if there are questions. It is truly a MAGICAL VILLA.

Best house and renter in the area.

We actually stayed in Nov 2015 but I'm always slow on reviews. We started renting from Ms. Wendy back in 2010 and she's the only one we rent from. She's a fantastic host and her homes are beautiful. We were the first renters of this property and it suits our needs in every way as 6-8 adults, 3-4 couples without children. The theater room has a separate AC unit to deal with the heat from the tv. The pool area has a nice big table for us all to gather at and the 4 en suite rooms are superb. I love this home and we love Ms. Wendy. Will always rent from her.
