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 average plots, private pools and general living spaces. All set in a gated community.

Once inside the gates of Formosa Gardens you will feel a world away from the busy Orlando theme parks. After you’ve had some chill time by your pool and feel ready for dinner and drinks, you have a huge choice of bars and restaurants 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.

hank you for renting from us. We really appreciate the kind words. We love the house, and it's very spacious (totally oversized) not your average-sized 4-bedroom in Central Florida on 2/3's of an acre and a huge south-facing pool / hot tub. Thank you again.
Wonderful place to stay, wonderful Owners / Hosts

Wonderful place to stay, and it was wonderful to have Owners/hosts that went out of their way to make our stay magnificent!! We had a fabulous stay here. Charles was amazingly responsive to a few things that we needed help with. He was just an email or phone call away and gave fantastic, quick service. The home is in a beautiful, safe neighbourhood. It was quiet and very well maintained. We were there over Christmas and took part in the coldest spell of weather! Charles went out of his way to ensure the pool/hot tub stayed warm for us! Our biggest reason for choosing this home was for the use of the pool/hot tub, and his excellent customer service did not disappoint. The home was spacious and very inviting. Everything was clean, and we really enjoyed the white, fresh towels! You can absolutely tell that they make the guests their top priority. Some of the decors is of older taste as advertised, but the home provided our family of 7 with everything we needed. The location can't be beaten. It is close to the parks, shopping and restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this home (or their other properties) again!

Relax just like in your own personal home.

Our family had a great and relaxing time at home. The pool was very fun for the kids and adults too. The option to be able to cook and grill for the family was also a plus. The time and extra money usually spent on going out to eat were averted! We were able to choose fresh, healthy food options instead. Packing a cooler every day for our day trip outings was super convenient. The home is in a great convenient location to theme parks and Cocoa Beach, and we even drove south down through the Florida Keys one day. The home is situated in a clean, safe neighbourhood within a gated community. Easy in and easy out. Highly recommend it for families with kids. The home was very organized with all that you could think of, from pack and plays for small children to all the grilling tools for adults! Walmart is super close to pick up any items you may need or wish that you brought but forgot.

Thank you very much we are humble and try all the time to do the best we can and look forward to always helping and having guests stay with us. We hope to see you agian.
Very Clean and comfortable.

Our family has rented vacation homes from VRBO and other agencies a few times a year for the past five years, specifically in the Orlando area (Disney family), and this was our collective favourite. The house is spacious, and as a mom and a bit of a germophobe, I sincerely appreciated how clean everything was when we arrived. The pool area was also an all-time favourite. I'm not sure we could beat this home and its location. We'll definitely rent from Charles & Jo again on our next trip!

The property was amazing, pool absolutely awesome.

The property was amazing, pool absolutely fantastic (pool heating was perfect for November). Charles and Joanne, fantastic hosts, kept us informed from the day we booked the villa. The best place we’ve stayed in since first going to Florida since 1996. Looking forward to going there again.

Thank you Keith and family. Humbled and thank you for you kind words.. with you coming that long and staying in that many properties we thank you. We have to say it goes both ways great communication is bidirectional thank you. All we can really say is that we try and not being a management company but owning and looking after the properties ourselves is a big key, because we care about our homes and people staying in them. We hope you can come again all the best.
Great Disney Getaway

The house is great for kids (mine are 7, 4, 2) with the pool & hot tub. It was very convenient to Disney and a welcome retreat away from the crowds at the end of the day. Comfortable beds, good linens, friendly and hospitable owners.

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , Irmo, SC

The property was amazing, pool absolutely awesome.

We stayed in this lovely villa for three weeks in September/October 2022. We’ve stayed in many other villas on Formosa Gardens but this one is by far the best. We had nearly every meal outside, and if it hadn’t been for hurricane Ian putting in an appearance, it would have been every meal! It was lovely to get back after a busy day and relax in the lovely large pool. The whole villa is very well equipped, with plenty of cutlery, glasses, plates etc., which, again, is the best we’ve had. The villa is also very close to the Disney parks. We got back from Animal Kingdom in 11 minutes! If there’s anything you need, Charles and Joanne are always happy to help and easy to get hold of. We can’t wait for a return visit!

Thank you very much, Alison and family we appreciate the very kind words and are honored to have you stay with us. We always find with our personalities, it's all about communication and communicating how you would like to communicate, so we do. The location, honestly, we don't think can be beaten on the size and style of the homes. We are so glad you like the large pool. Not that regular in vacation homes to have a large pool. Thanks again, and look forward to having you back soon.
We loved our stay! We will be back!

This house is in a great location, less than 15 minutes from the Magic Kingdom parking lot. The pool and hot tub are well-maintained, and the house was clean and well-kept. Charles and Jo were very responsive hosts, and we enjoyed our stay! We’ll definitely be back!

Amazing house close to everything

Greatest Vacation Home in 10 years + of renting.

What a great property. It's located in a safe, gated community close to everything. It sits on a large lot that backs up to a private pond. Check-in couldn't have been easier, and communication with Jo and Charles was seamless. The home had more than enough space for everyone, and the pool area was large and had plenty of seating. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the necessities. We have been renting homes in Orlando/Kissimmee for 10+ years, and this has been the best. Highly recommend! Thanks for a great stay.

Thank you David and Family. Really it's always our pleasure to host great guests and try to make your vacation special for all the right reasons. Thank you and look forward to having you back next time.
Best Family Holiday Near Disney

This was our third time in Florida and one we won’t forget. Charles and Jo’s property is in a wonderful location for Disney and Universal and is plenty big enough to enjoy family time away from the parks. The pool was the biggest pool we’ve had at a Florida villa, and the pool table was a bonus for our teenagers! Contact before, throughout and after was professional and punctual. We will definitely recommend this villa to family and friends. We hope to come back one day too!

Thank you Verity and family. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. As we say all the time communication and respect is so important and it’s both ways. The pool and hot tub at this house and most of our other homes are not the common size that are in other rental homes and also the piece of land the house is one is not common most are right next to each other with no real privacy so we really love this home. We hope to have you back one day too.
Best Family Holiday Near Disney

Our family consisted of my spouse and our three boys, ages 17, 5, and 13. The home is in a great and safe location. The pool area was beautiful. The pond in the back had an alligator in it. If you go out at night ( stay a safe distance) and shine a flashlight, you can see the red eyes. My boys thought that was great! They also saw it safely from a distance in the day along the shore. The owners are friendly and respond quickly to questions. This is the only rental that leaves soda and water for guests free of charge. Overall we loved this home, and it felt very clean. Thanks for sharing.

Perfect spot for Disney

It was exactly what it said—the perfect place to use as a base for parks. We wanted a day to relax and enjoy the house but we were always out at the parks. The pool and hot tub are beautiful. The house was clean and exactly as pictured/described. Definitely returning next time.

Beautiful home close to Disney!

This vacation home has everything you are looking for! The newly renovated pool/spa area is so nice and private. It also has the most beautiful view, overlooking the pond through the moss-draped trees. The kitchen has everything you need - including coffee filters, coffee, sugar, etc. Bedrooms - comfortable, bathrooms - clean. Laundry room - very clean washer/dryer - includes detergent pods, in case you forgot your own. Location - could not be better. Formosa Gardens is a beautiful, gated community that is minutes away from Disney property (seriously, less than 10 minutes). Owner communication - perfect. Prompt, friendly replies (via text or phone) and immediate attention to any issues that should arise. Truly one of the best vacation homes we've stayed in. You won't be disappointed!

Very happy with our stay at this home.

Very happy with our stay at this home. The large pool area had a great view of a small lake. We spent most of our time out there. The house was comfortable and spacious. Charles and Joanna were very easy to work with and available if we needed anything.

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , Elk River, MN

Owners reply
Thanks very much, Mona and family, the house is a home and that's the thing that has to be comfortable and spacious. The new large pool and hot tub that looks over the lake is super special for adults or children to hang out. Having an awesome-sized pool heater makes things super relaxing even with the recent cold weather. Communication is super important without communication you really can't interact and we think would you loan something to someone that you can't interact with from both the guest and owner side. It also helps you are dealing with us all the time and not a management company or third party. Thank you again all the best Charles and Joanne
5 stars it’s not enough. Really thanks.

We loved the house and Charles / Joanne. So pretty and comfortable and clean. The beds are really good, and the house is very big. My family and I had amazing memories and times. Thank you for everything. 5 stars it’s not enough. Really thanks

Fantastic location, beautiful setting on the lake.

Fantastic location, prompt communication, a large heated pool w/hot tub, and a clean and spacious home that has been well taken care of in a quiet location. The beautiful setting on the lake made for many relaxing afternoons by the pool. Thanks again, Charles and Jo. We hope to return again soon! Thanks again for sharing your lovely property with us.

Thanks, Jason and Family. we like a lot you think the location is Fantastic we think so for the last 23 plus years there really is not much more about the location we can say except what great location right next to everything and it keeps getting better. The house being on that extra sized lot of 2/3's acre is really different and backing on the lake makes the afternoons and evening really special . We like relaxing in the hot tub and letting the world go by its really awesome. The new Pool and hot tub just is huge and wow. We look forward to having you return.
Wonderful visit that we had at this home

We enjoyed staying at Charles and Joanne's place. The location was great and close to the Disney parks. The house also backs up to a small lake which makes sitting outside on the patio a very relaxing time. The neighbourhood was quiet and not very busy. The house was very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was stocked with the necessary appliances, dishes, and kitchen tools. The pool area was awesome - we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub after long days of running around the parks. Thanks again for the wonderful visit that we had at the house. We found the house very clean, with the necessary materials, and well-maintained.

Thanks for staying with us Mark and Family. We spend a lot of time with our team doing the best we can to maintain everything that is quite challenging at the moment but it's what we have to work with. The house has just had major upgrades as your saw, paint and decorated, new pool and hot tub and pool area. (which we love just as much as we think you did). Cleanliness is important and hard work we have to keep a detailed eye on everything but its great having excellent guests also. We thank you for staying with us, and please reach out next time you are coming to the Disney area or Central Florida.
This was a charming cottage-style home on a lake

This was a charming cottage-style home with a beautiful pool area and lake view, and we loved the location and everything about it! Thank you so very much.

We love sharing our big home with people, it's a little bit different and special, location and size is everything and this home we think has it in spades we think most other people can't believe just how close to Disney and everything the home is and how the house feels like a home to many people. The pool and view are awesome we can totally agree with you. Thanks for staying with us and hope to have you return.

hank you for renting from us. We really appreciate the kind words. We love the house, and it's very spacious (totally oversized) not your average-sized 4-bedroom in Central Florida on 2/3's of an acre and a huge south-facing pool / hot tub. Thank you again.
