Formosa Gardens Orlando Villas in Florida

Formosa Gardens Villas in Orlando

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.

Amazing

The house was Amazing!! Even more beautiful in person!! Everyone loved the views from the patio. So spacious!! It was 4 couples and we never once felt crowded. Great Location!! So much to do close to the house. Shopping and many food options close to the house also. Host and owner were very easy to reach if any problems. We only had one and that was our fault. Locked up the keypad but it reset after a few minutes. Master bedroom was huge and absolutely gorgeous!! Loved having direct pool access! House doesn't advertise handicapped accessible but my husband is in a manual wheelchair and easily maneuvered the whole first floor. One step down out to patio, one step down into the game room, and one into house. Shower was large enough that we were able to put his shower chair in it and he had plenty of space. He REALLY loved and appreciated that!! Already looking at rebooking for next year!

We had THE most amazing vacation at this home! Pool...beautiful! Interior...beautiful! Neighborhood...amazing! Location...THE BEST! The surround sound inside the home was everything. We started everyday with music and ended it with music. Extremely pet friendly. Hardwoods and tile throughout and a fenced area so our dog didn't have to be tied when she was outdoors. Will definitely book again and again.

Above Expectations!

The house is so grand! So much space for a big family! Every room is so spacious and equipped with high quality furniture and decorated nicely. The house is stocked so well with plenty of towels, kitchen items/utensils and extras all throughout the house. The outdoor pool is way more than just a pool. The deck is incredible along with stunning views of the lake and an amazing sunset each night. The community is so close to all the attractions. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, Spacious, Well Kept Home!

We had a wonderful vacation experience last week (Sept 2020). The owner was a pleasure to work with and quick to respond. The home is clearly well cared for and exceptionally clean. It is located in a safe gated community and equipped with plenty of towels, linens, and kitchenware. The homes spacious floor plan and close proximity to theme parks make it ideal for vacationing families. After spending all day on our feet, we thoroughly enjoyed quiet evenings at ”home”. Our family absolutely loved the screened-in backyard pool and the daily sunsets were spectacular. We are already planning our next trip to Orlando and will definitely stay in this beautiful home again. Highly Recommended *****

Great place to stay with a family!

My kids and I stayed at this beautiful home for the last 2 months while in quarantine. Pat and her team could not have been sweeter, more helpful, or welcoming. Upon arrival the home was spotless, and anything we needed throughout our stay was just an email or phone call away. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. I can’t wait to come back!

AMAZING PROPERTY CLOSE TO ALL THE ATTRACTIONS

As a family of 5 we have stayed at numerous villas in the Kissimmee area on an annual basis since 1996 and everybody agrees this is by far the best villa. The location at Formosa Gardens is perfect as it is literally only a 10 minute drive from the Disney Parks. Whilst it is a short drive away the location of the villa is set in a very peaceful and tranquil setting. We have stayed at numerous locations over the past 30+ years but we all agree both the villa and location are "Premier league". The villa accommodates 12 people and we were concerned it would be too large for a small family of 5 but it has a very homely feel to it and we were pleasantly surprised how comfortable we settled in. The owners have spent a great deal of time (and I dare say money!) on making this a truly remarkable property. The decor is inspirational and the quality of the furnishings and beds is perfect. Whoever decided on the decor needs congratulating. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this villa to anybody seeking a relaxing, peaceful and spotlessly clean holiday villa. We certainly hope to return again one day. Top marks all round!!!!!!

Thank you for your wonderful review - its very gratifying to know that we did a good job with the design and furnishing - which we do ourselves and love doing it. We hope you will stay with us again soon.
Great location, lovely decor, very responsive owne

We had a wonderful time and especially enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub for relaxing in the sun. The kitchen was very well stocked for preparing our Thanksgiving dinner, plus the outside grill was awesome for grilling out, too. The home is lovely and obviously well maintained— a slight hiccup with the air conditioning was taken care of and repaired on Thanksgiving Eve. Amazing service, really. We loved, too, the game room and the fact that there were plenty of pool towels and toys! Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. And we loved the location as it was super close to the ESPN Wide World of Sports where my daughter had a soccer tournament.

Fabulous Villa and even better pool area.

Unfortunatly we only had 5 days in this wonderful villa. The standard of furnishing and rooms were very high. A lot of effort had been put in this home to make it a villa That you will always remember. This is the best villa that we have ever stayed in ( visiting for 30yrs ). A massive pool and outside area made it a great place to sit anytime of the day, shaded or full sunshine your choice, when taking a break from the parks Pat the owner is was brilliant, kept in touch all the time as we booked the villa with very short notice, helped us when we were stuck at the end of our holiday. Many thanks very giving us the opportunity of staying in your wonderful home. Can't recommend it more.
