Location

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 30 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.

As you pull into the community there is a Video monitored entry system to the left. When you press the button, an agent will assist you to get in the gate. Only registered guest could enter.

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.

As you pull into the community there is a Video monitored entry system to the left. When you press the button, an agent will assist you to get in the gate. Only registered guest could enter.

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.

As you pull into the community there is a Video monitored entry system to the left. When you press the button, an agent will assist you to get in the gate. Only registered guest could enter.

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.

As you pull into the community there is a Video monitored entry system to the left. When you press the button, an agent will assist you to get in the gate. Only registered guest could enter.

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. We have also included brief details below.

These are in sections and can be taken down by unclipping and rolling the fence up. Obviously taking the system down will mean you have removed the safety defence and are now susceptible to accidents happening. We recommend that you keep this in place at all times when you have children in the party that are not capable swimmers, and adults are not able to supervise children by the pool area.

Pool safety is extremely important to prevent drowning. The first and best rule to prevent drowning is constant adult supervision for both children and the elderly.

The pool is cleaned on a weekly basis, access to do this is via outside doors within the pool screen.

Awesome Place!

This property was amazing! Perfect for my family of 10! Everyone had their own bedroom (couples) and bathroom. The house was super clean and stocked with items I haven’t seen at other rentals, like strollers, high chairs, pack-n-plays, and booster car seats. We particularly enjoyed the theatre room and the outside area. The pool and hot tub are enclosed with screening, and each door had a pool alarm which was awesome for keeping my grandkids from going outside without an adult. The house was nicely decorated and has a very well-stocked kitchen. Having five king beds was perfect and comfy. The owners of this property are amazing! Very attentive and responsive to questions quickly! We will definitely rent their home again!

Thank you very much for staying with us. We really appreciate it. We think the home should be a home away from home, not a box with some beds, so we try and keep up to date and provide everything we think should be in a home. Stay safe and well; come back again soon.
Great stay!!!!

House was gorgeous and clean, big pool, many bedrooms and an awesome theatre room. The owner was very responsive throughout, which we highly value. The street was very quiet, and all in all, we had a fantastic vacation! 10 for 10 ! Couldn’t ask for more!! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home!

Thank you very much. Happy Holidays, and look forward to having you back again. We love the brand new pool and hot tub / spa :)
The house was beautiful, with tons of space

The house was beautiful, with tons of space for our group of 12 to spread out. We had an issue with the a/c one evening, freezing up, and the owner responded almost immediately and came over to fix it right then. It’s a quick and easy drive to Disney, which was exactly what we needed. We appreciated everything well-stocked, especially the drinks in the fridge. It was just a nice touch to be able to have a drink before we had to rush to the store. We also loved all the baby/toddler equipment on hand. We didn’t think to rent a stroller for our 6-year-old, so we were very glad there was one available for her to use at the house. We will definitely stay again when we go to Disney.

Thank you Kelli and Family. Having the AC freeze up is never a good thing that happens in Florida good news having the AC units serviced all the time means that not too big an issue to fix, as we did immediately. It's what we pride ourselves on; knowing the heartbeat of our homes makes the difference between being the owners, managers and hosts and not having a management company. You always deal with us, the owners, for everything. Our favourite places are the new swimming pool and pool / hot tub area. The kid's items we think are just a great thing to have in the house, so you guys don't have to think about that. Look forward to seeing you again.
Absolutely amazing

No, we were absolutely blown away by the property. It was all expectations that we had, and it was even better than pictured. It was very close to Disney World, to the point where we were able to come home midday and relax and then go back to the parks. Charles, the host, was extremely responsive and accommodating. We will definitely be visiting their property again when we come back to Disney.

Thank you so much, Jessica and Family. Absolutely a pleasure as we say the pictures are real and we love having that way to make sure people are not disappointed with old pictures. The new pool is a great addition to the house as we do with all our homes we continually update and upgrade our homes. The location is everyone we love it very much so close to all the activities and attractions. Being responsive is what both my wife and I try to do all the time and having our team based on site in the estate nearly every day is important to us. Looking forward to having you return in the future.
Perfect Family House

This property is well-equipped for families. It is convenient to Disney and a short ride. It is well maintained and in a gated community for safety. There are restaurants close by and a winery for adult time. The pool and hot tube were perfect for days when we needed rest from Disney. The owners are attentive and very caring. I would highly recommend this and will stay again in this wonderful area.

Our stay could not have been better. Beautiful

Our stay could not have been better. The house is beautiful. Charles was extremely responsive to any questions or needs. He is running a top-shelf vacation home business. We will be sure to rent one of his many properties again. Charles. Everything was great. A pleasure to meet you, and thanks for the attention you gave us at the beginning of our stay. It set the pace for the rest of our week. If you're asking us to be critical of our stay, I will only mention the chemical balance in the pool. There were significant algae on the pool walls, which we brushed away. Since we are pool owners ourselves, it was a simple fix. We guess the extreme heat of the pool heat and the outside caused a need for more chlorine. Charles also set the pool guy out immediately. It's something to keep an eye on. Truthfully, the week was great. Thank you again. Jim

Thank you, Mary, it was our pleasure and always is to help our guests anytime; after doing this for 23 years + it is essential to have great communication and understanding with both hosts and guests. We have loved this location and style of home since we brought here in 1999. We say to everyone what you see is what you get with us no fake photos etc. Looking forward to having you return.
Superb Villa in excellent location

The villa was absolutely superb - a real home-from-home experience. Plenty of space, a great pool and a hot tub. Superb location for all the Disney parks - all within 15 minutes drive. Nearby Starbucks drive-through and plenty of local eateries to choose from. (Sickies on the main road - one of our favourites ) We would definitely recommend it to anyone planning a stay in the area. The owners were quick to respond to any queries and were a delight to work with. Thanks again - we’ll be back

Great home with superb customer service.

We had a wonderful experience with Aunger Vacation Homes. The Magical 7BR home was a perfect fit for our large family. The home was exquisite, with a very nice ambience, family-friendly, and super clean. The hot tub, pool, and movie room were a hit! The owners gave superb customer service. Everyone is very nice and makes you feel welcome, especially Tom. I would highly recommend it. Very friendly management of Charles and Joanne, who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.

A Magical and Magnificent Stay

Our US/Brazilian party of 11 (10 adults and 1 (2 year old) stayed at this home. We came to Orlando to celebrate our 18 year old twins graduating high school. Their Brazilian Au Pair and her family came from Blumenau, Santa Catarina, Brazil to attend the graduation and to vacation with our family in Orlando. This home was very spacious and allowed us all to spread out and have our own space to decompress after a long day at the theme parks. The pool/hot tub was great to come back to for relaxation. My teenagers loved the movie theater and watched movies in it every single night. The kitchen was spacious and having a private home vs hotel to come back to saved a ton of money on eating out every night not to mention the difficulty in trying to find a reservation to seat all 11 people. Several days prior to our stay, the prior owners (Wendy Stohr) sold the home to Charles and Jo Aunger. I can't say enough about the Aunger's!!!! They are wonderful people. They get 5 gold stars for responsiveness. They were absolutely the best hosts I have encountered. They genuinely cared about making sure our stay was absolutely top notch and was on top of anything that needed to be addressed and then some. I would 110% stay at one of their homes and recommend them to friends, family and anyone looking for a safe, secure, clean, and comfortable stay in Orlando. Formosa Gardens is super close to Disney parks and has a back entrance to park to get in/out quickly. At the end of the day, we really felt like we were coming "home" and I don't say that lightly. The house felt like a home away from home. It was decorated modern, comfortable, and welcoming. Given the fact that our family has spent the last 2 1/2 years without a vacation hiding from covid and isolating from friends, family, school, work, etc. We needed a place to vacation where we could relax, come together, find peace, solitude, and enjoyment, and reconnect with each other as a family. This stay and this house check all of those boxes. Thank you Charles and Jo for your kindness and generosity as hosts and for making our stay perfect. We greatly appreciate it.

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.

Theatre Room
Awesome Place!

This property was amazing! Perfect for my family of 10! Everyone had their own bedroom (couples) and bathroom. The house was super clean and stocked with items I haven’t seen at other rentals, like strollers, high chairs, pack-n-plays, and booster car seats. We particularly enjoyed the theatre room and the outside area. The pool and hot tub are enclosed with screening, and each door had a pool alarm which was awesome for keeping my grandkids from going outside without an adult. The house was nicely decorated and has a very well-stocked kitchen. Having five king beds was perfect and comfy. The owners of this property are amazing! Very attentive and responsive to questions quickly! We will definitely rent their home again!

Owners reply
Thank you very much for staying with us. We really appreciate it. We think the home should be a home away from home, not a box with some beds, so we try and keep up to date and provide everything we think should be in a home. Stay safe and well; come back again soon.
