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.

Perfect. Best villa we’ve ever stayed in.

I cannot day enough good things about Sea a Pearl Villa. From first booking, the owner, Diane, was so helpful. She got back to me whenever I had a question and was just wonderful to deal with. The actual villa....WOW! It is just stunning. It is huge. So much space and even with 8 of us, it never felt crowded. Master bedroom is gorgeous. Beds are so comfy! All the Baby equipment we needed was provided - walker, high chair, travel cot and buggies/strollers. Loads of useful kitchen equipment meant we could easily prepare meals in the villa when we didn’t want to eat out. Plenty if seating in the living areas which isn’t always the case in villas for big groups. Pool area was great and plenty of bath and pool towels. The pool alarms on doors were really reassuring with a 3 year old. Location was just perfect. Literally 15-20 minutes from Disney (I’ve found that lots of villas say they’re close to Disney but that is not always the case) Sea Pearl is so close and there’s a huge Walmart about 8 minutes away. On the last couple of days before we left, Disney was closed because of the Coronavirus, the villa owner contacted us immediately to check we were ok and if we needed anything. They made sure we had a base in case we were stuck with nowhere to go. Without a doubt, we will book Sea Pearl Villa again.

Perfection in a villa!

Well, another year in this amazing Villa We have stayed in this Villa for a number of years and there are no words to tell you how good it is. We stayed when it was owned by the previous owners and thought it was lovely then. However, sine the “Hurt Family” have owned it, it has just got better and better. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the villa caters for everyone’s needs. Even when we use all the bedrooms, the ills is still spacious enough, that everyone had their own space. Sufficient Sun loungers and outside furniture for everyone and very good quality towels and pool towels for all See you again real soon!

The perfect villa in Orlando

We are two couples who have travelled for many years now to Florida in November and this villa was the most immaculate home we have ever stayed in. Nothing disappointed. The private south facing pool, the absolute attention to detail inside, the abundance of luxury towels, the cleanliness of the property, pool and deck were all second to none. Diane has been super helpful from the moment we contacted her with every detail covered. She definitely goes above and beyond. Formosa gardens is one of the best up market developments and so very convenient for everything, the parks, golf courses, so many restaurants and, of course, the shopping. As you can see we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this fabulous villa.

Just Perfection!!

Myself and my family stayed here for 2 blissful weeks in October 2019. From start to finish the holiday was perfection. The information we received before our stay regarding the villa was great and the directions easy to follow. As soon as we walked into the villa it was a WOW, spacious accommodation, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds, great pool and pool area and the kitchen had everything provided you would need. The villa is located in a safe gated community, with lots of space around the house and a large drive. Location is Perfect!! We hired a car, which you would need in this location and would be at MK in around 10 mins and the other Disney parks in around 15 mins. SeaWorld and Discovery Cove are under 30 mins. There are lots of shops, supermarkets and restaurants in the area. Longhorn Steak House was our favourite!! We really didn't want to leave, and cant wait to come back to this villa in the future. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home. I know that every family who are lucky enough to stay here will have the most magical stay.

Best Villa Ever!

I can't praise this villa enough! We had a fantastic stay, from start to finish. The villa is very spacious, spotlessly clean, lovely decor, well equipped and so convenient for getting to Disney and Universal. Diane the owner was so helpful and friendly from the first time I enquired about the villa and nothing was too much trouble. The directions were very clear for arrival and there was plenty of information in the villa for places to eat/visit which was very useful. All in all, we had a very enjoyable holiday, i'm so pleased we picked to stay in this villa, and we will definitely be going back as soon as we can!

Fantastic from the beginning to the end

What a fantastic experience from the minute we sent an enquiry until our final day in the villa. Diane was so friendly and helpful. Her emails were very informative. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa was absolutely gorgeous - even better than the photos if that is possible. We have stayed in Formosa Gardens before so knew it was an extremely convenient location for Disney and Universal but it was by far the nicest villa we have stayed in. It was extremely spacious with plenty of room for 2 families comprising of 7 adults and a 16 year old. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone.

WOW - AMAZING VILLA - AMAZING HOST 5*

My family of 6 stayed here at the end of July 2019. From the initial enquiry to the end of our stay was exceptional. Diane was amazing with all of my initial enquiries with speedy responses and extremely helpful answers to everything. Her excitement for us was evident. The information sent beforehand with directions etc was fabulous too. The villa itself is immaculate and beautiful. It has everything you could need, from pool towels to kitchenware. The pool was a fantastic temperature at all times, a lovely warm dip first thing in the morning starts the day very well. The beds were very comfortable too, and the aircon kept us all at a perfect temperature night and day. All of the parks are very close by, as are plenty of restaurants and shops. The information folder in the villa was extremely helpful with write ups of all the eateries. The Formosa Gardens is a beautifully kept and very quiet location. This is definitely our favourite villa by far. If we ever return to Florida we will be staying again. So all in all, amazing and friendly hosts to deal with topped off by an amazingly wonderful villa. Thank you Diane for making our amazing dream holiday so special xxx

Fabulous fabulous fabulous!!

We have been to Florida four times staying mainly in the Kissimmee area, this time taking the whole family with us we all agreed looking at villas. Went in to this site and pictures beautifully presented we fell in love with this villa immediately. Formosa gardens is so easy to get to and loved the security gates on entrance. I spoke by email to the owner Diane Hurt and she always answered quickly. She was so very helpful with everything eg we had a 5/6 month baby with us and her villa was so well equipped with cots, high chairs, new cot sheets, everything was spotless On approaching the villa the lawn was immaculate and entering the villa it was so bright and very very clean. Although There was twelve of us it was roomy and outside pool was crystal clear and again immaculate And enough room for us all to sit. We went on June 23 for two weeks and never had to put heating on the pool. It was always warm probably because it was south facing. We needed assistance once with a leak and got it fixed immediately. So very close to Disney and supermarkets near by too. Premium outlets where we frequented quite a lot in the evening was just 10/15 mins away. All I can say is F A B U L O U S, hoping we all get back soon.

Amazing!!

We have visited Orlando numerous times and this is by far the best Villa we have stayed in. The Villa is located on a prestigious estate with great locality to parks and amenities. It is beautifully and comfortably furnished with everything we could need. The pool area is very private and quiet, which can sometimes be hard to find in Orlando. The air conditioned games rooms was also a bonus and provided many hours of enjoyment in the evenings. Thank you Diane and David for sharing your amazing home X

Awesome - Don’t hesitate, just book!

We had an amazing time at this villa and would not hesitate to go back. Everything was perfect. As already stated below in other reviews, there are so many advantages of staying at this villa such as the location, security, comfort, cleanliness, condition, south facing pool etc but, for us the biggest tick in the box was the warm care and attention given by the owners throughout the whole process. Nothing is too much trouble. You really do get a sense of being well looked after during your stay at their home. Thank you again Diane and David!

Perfect in every way

This home is stunning. Location, just a couple of miles could not be better and on the best rental estate in the Disney area. The home itself is very well renovated. Two superb master suites. Another great double and two children's rooms. Games room is great and an amazing pool that gets lots of sun. The booking process was simple and great contact throughout from Diane the owner. We have been to the area a dozen times but this already feels like our own second home! When we return we only want to stay here! Amazing and miss it already - only home today.

Stunning spotlessly clean home from home

What can I say other than we had a truly fantastic time staying in The Floridian. Very clean, comfortable and modern. We had everything we needed and the owners were great. Every question we had was answered promptly. Formosa Gardens is an upscale community, very close to all amenities and the nearest to Disney. Quick journey back at the end of a long day in the parks! The pool had recently been resurfaced and tiled and the new pool loungers were extremely comfortable. Can't wait to go back. Would definitely recommend to all of our friends and family.

Beautiful property

Beautiful spacious very clean house, the pool area is particularly lovely and very well kept! You feel very safe there, it’s in an upmarket gated community. Close to Disney, restaurants and shops. The Owners are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble! Reasonable prices. We had had a fabulous holiday and will definitely be rebooking here again.

Fantastic home close to Disney

Wow, what a great stay we had in 'The Floridian'. The owner was really kind and helpful and answered all of our queries prior to our stay, nothing was too much trouble. The home had recently undergone a few updates which were fantastic. Everything was extremely clean, the new bedding and towels were really good quality and the kitchen was well stocked. The pool was superb, plenty of sun loungers and chairs. Not overlooked, sunny all day and very peaceful. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets close by and the closet most exclusive estate to Disney. A beautiful place to stay. Have already enquired about booking for next year!

An excellent stay, we would definitely return!

We stayed at The Floridian in April 2018 for three weeks. It was easy to find the villa thanks to the information we received from the owner before we travelled. We drove to the villa from the airport and were well prepared for the toll booths enroute! The villa had recently been updated and was immaculate inside and out. There was plenty of room for our large family and it was a real pleasure to stay there. It was nice to be able to completely relax after a long day in the parks. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and utensils, the cooker and the fridge appeared to be brand new. The bedrooms were a good size, with three of them being en-suite. Everything was spotlessly clean. The location of the villa was perfect for the parks, and there were plenty of amenities close by (2 minute drive, 10-15 minute walk). We ate at the Outback down the road, as well as the TGI Fridays and the Longhorn steakhouse. We were also close to the local supermarket and Walmart. The highlight of our stay was definitely the pool deck, it was perfect for a day off from the usual Florida attractions, it got the sun all day and we had a few bbq’s during our stay. It looks fantastic at night, when lit up with the blue pool light. The Formosa gardens estate is really well kept, secure and quiet. We can’t wait to go back!

Pool Deck
Perfect. Best villa we’ve ever stayed in.

I cannot day enough good things about Sea a Pearl Villa. From first booking, the owner, Diane, was so helpful. She got back to me whenever I had a question and was just wonderful to deal with. The actual villa....WOW! It is just stunning. It is huge. So much space and even with 8 of us, it never felt crowded. Master bedroom is gorgeous. Beds are so comfy! All the Baby equipment we needed was provided - walker, high chair, travel cot and buggies/strollers. Loads of useful kitchen equipment meant we could easily prepare meals in the villa when we didn’t want to eat out. Plenty if seating in the living areas which isn’t always the case in villas for big groups. Pool area was great and plenty of bath and pool towels. The pool alarms on doors were really reassuring with a 3 year old. Location was just perfect. Literally 15-20 minutes from Disney (I’ve found that lots of villas say they’re close to Disney but that is not always the case) Sea Pearl is so close and there’s a huge Walmart about 8 minutes away. On the last couple of days before we left, Disney was closed because of the Coronavirus, the villa owner contacted us immediately to check we were ok and if we needed anything. They made sure we had a base in case we were stuck with nowhere to go. Without a doubt, we will book Sea Pearl Villa again.
