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.

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.

Thank you, Emma... We are delighted you had a wonderful stay.
The house is fantastic

The house is fantastic, it’s spacious and the “den” is ideal as a second sitting area for the extended family. We enjoyed the pool, especially first thing for a refreshing dip. The house had everything that we needed and we would really love to stay there again

Absolutely beautiful villa

We have been holidaying in Florida for some years now and this villa is our favourite. Exceptionally clean and very well equipped. We all made good use of the pool and Jacuzzi. A really lovely, quiet neighbourhood with the security of a gated entrance. We have all had a brilliant time and have thoroughly enjoyed the villa. Thank you so much.

Felt like home

Taking a week off to spend in Orlando can be fun and sometimes stressful at the same time. A big part of relieving the street was the home we stayed in. The home was clean, spacious, the pool and hot tub were clean and refreshing. It was such a good feeling to come to a place that felt like home. I look forward to coming back again and staying in the same home.

Great Vacation Home

We had a great experience at this home. The pool and hot tub were just a great bonus to have on site. The temperature of the hot tub and the pool were perfect. Everything was very clean and was exactly as shown on the listing. The owner was very responsive when I asked questions. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!!

Near Mickey Mouse

We are 2 retired adults escaping the UK winter, we occupied the Villa for all of February 2022. The Villa is in a gated community very near to Disney and close to many shops and restaurants. When we arrived we found the Villa to be clean and comfortable, well stocked with plenty of kitchen utensils, glasses, plates etc. The pool is in full sun nearly all day and there was comfortable loungers etc. The owner was very helpful and I can’t think of anything negative to say about the property. Thank You.

Owners reply
Thank you very much for your wonderful review – I am delighted you enjoyed your extended vacation. Having a sunny pool deck is very important to me also so I am pleased you were able to relax on the loungers and soak up the Florida sunshine.
Would definitely stay here again

To be honest, we spent little time at the property beyond sleeping, but it was everything we wanted - spacious, well appointed, clean. Would definitely be happy staying there again.

Perfect Family Getaway

We had a great two week stay at this property and we didn’t want to leave. Our family trip consisted of 4 adults and two children ranging in age from 5 to 69 and the one floor layout was perfect for everyone. The house was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. We frequently cooked in the kitchen and even made a complete Thanksgiving dinner while we were there. The house is very close to Disney property, which made going to the parks convenient and quick, and the gated community gave us an added layer of security in an area we’re unfamiliar with. My kids loved the Mickey and Minnie room and my son didn’t want to leave the Mickey stuffed animal at the house behind (We ended up taking pictures with him to remember that time and I thought it was sweet). The pool was perfect for relaxing and we appreciated the pool toys that were at the house to play with. Dealing with the owners and property managers was easy, quick, and honestly a pleasure that has set a high standard for any of our future rentals. We look forward to coming back in the future. Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Fantastic villa

A fantastic villa in a wonderful location. We have stayed in numerous villas over the last 20 years of visiting Florida but this has been by far the best. It has everything that you need, it’s like a home away from home. I don’t know how I didn’t find it before. The owners could not have been a better host, bending over backwards to help with all that we needed. The villa was spacious and was maintained to an exceptional standard. The house was probably the cleanest and most modern of any we have stayed in. It really seemed like a home from home and was most comfortable. The Management Company are wonderful and were only too happy to provide help should we have needed it. We will definitely be back!”

Fantastic Holiday - thank you

We had a fantastic holiday thank you and loved this villa as it met all of our needs and our children particularly loved the pool and games room. Everything in the villa was excellent and I will definitely recommend the villa to friends and family travelling to the area. Thanks again for all your help sorting out this villa at relatively short notice - we had a great time.

We had a wonderful stay in this house. It truly did have everything we could have wanted and its proximity to all the restaurants and parks really did make the holiday less stressful and more convenient every day with plans, etc. This was definitely our best stay in Florida so far.

Villa felt like home from home

This villa felt like home from home, it is close to everything you need for a holiday in Orlando, be it the parks or just chilling by the pool. Disney is only minutes away, and there are numerous restaurants in close proximity. The house was immaculate and the pool area is serviced every week where in other villas the pools seem to only be serviced every other week. We have been visiting this area for the last 20 years and this is by far one of our favourite villas to rent. Already planning to book again next year. We would highly recommend this villa.
