The movie collection is growing every month and has all the latest high definition block busters in it and currently stands at over 700 HD moves and 80 3D movies. Why compromise on your cinema seating, our cinema continues the upscale luxury theme with all seating being full leather electrically reclining seats with foot rests.

Our cinema is the second most raved about feature in Star Lake Manor (1st being the pool area), the reason it raved about so highly is the high quality components that make up the cinema. No fewer than 8 speakers are hidden at head height behind panels in the walls giving a true surround experience (No inferior ceiling mount speakers at our cinema) . Each seat contains technology to improve the realism of each film. The video is provided by a top of the range projector giving a full 1080p picture.  

Full House Audio System

Whilst other homes may offer audio solutions in public areas, Star Lake Manor has taken the concept much much further, as our system covers every bedroom, every bathroom, living areas, kitchen, lanai, pool & balcony, no fewer than 14 separate zones. Each area can be connected to one of six music sources, being 2 ipod docks, 1 FM/AM stations, and 3 sources of internet radio. (Eg Pandora, Sirius and Tune-In)

Just bring your own ipod and connect it to one of the docks, and play your own music collection anywhere in the house and the pool area.

Games Room

The games room is purpose built and is therefore not your usual garage make-over, and as such the room is cool, light and airy which makes it a place you actually want to spend time in. The room is equipped with a full size 8ft pool table and 7ft air hockey table, and as it is located next to the pool deck is often used by our guests as a restbite from the Florida heat to shoot a game of pool or the kids to challenge the adults to a game of air hockey.

  • Upper balcony with casual seating and fans with views of the pool and lake beyond.
  • Outside summer kitchen - Larger gas BBQ, sink, refrigerator, ice maker & bar seating

Star Lake Manor receives rave reviews from its guests, but time and time again, the pool area gets extra special praise as to how amazing it is with plenty of room for all guests to relax and play in peace in the pool at the same time.


Star Lake Manor is located on a large 1/3 acre plot and is positioned on the southern edge of Star lake, giving full uninterupted views of the lake from all corners of our deck. This tranquil and peaceful setting, is perfect for those relaxing days by the pool looking out at the local wildlife. As Star Lake Manor backs on to nothing but water, there are no noisy neighbours or constant traffic noise from a busy road to contend with. 


Star Lake Manor has a super high speed internet connection . No fewer than 4 separate access points provide a wireless connection through out the house and pool area.

For those needing to keep in touch whilst on holiday, a separate computer area on the landing is equipped with a PC with a large 24" LCD screen, multifunction colour laser with scanner, fax and airprint for apple devices.

Fantastic family holiday

We stayed for 2 weeks in july 2017. 3 families (7 adults, 4 teens and 2 kids). The house was perfect, we especially loved the pool-area and the balcony with its scenic view. The bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms delicate. Easy to cook , enough space to store food for 3 families and big enough driveway for our 4 cars. The area was perfect for exploring and the proximity to stores and activities was superb. The owners were easy to contact before and after our stay. (They even sent us (in mail to Norway) two shorts we accidentally had left behind, with no charge). During our stay we needed assistance a couple of times- no trouble at all. We all loved the house and hope (and pray) to come back some time :)

Excellent vacation villa in a superb location

We stayed in Star Lake Manor with our family members, in total 9 adults and 4 kids. The information we received before arrival was very complete and helpfull, describing all important equipment in the house, directions to get there, and it had information about restaurants and attractions nearby. The location in the gated community of Formosa Gardens is very good. The house offers great lakeview and it's very relaxing to sit on the large pooldeck or on the balcony and enjoy the surroundings. The distance to all major attractions is very short: Disney is just minutes away while SeaWorld and Universal are a 20-30 minutes drive. The house is in optimal condition and has everything you need. We all enjoyed the pool very much. Especially the kids couldn't get enough and played in the water everyday. As the house as lots of other fun available, like X-boxes, a games room and a cinema the kids were playing in the pool all the time. The cinema is fantastic, I wish we had more time to enjoy some more of the great movie collection including some of the newest 3D Bluerays. The contact with the owners, Paul & Rachel Sharrock was easy and responsive. They've put a lot of effort in making our stay as comfortable as possible. The local management company answered our questions and remarks and were very helpfull as well. We would love to come back here and highly recommend this vacation home .

fantastic holiday

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone, it is out of this world. My family {6 adults and 5 children} stayed for three weeks in March 2015, and it was superb. We all didn't want to go home. The villa is furnished to a very high standard and the location was very central. Actually my daughter got married on the outdoor decking and it was a perfect day. We all enjoyed the facilities especially the kids loved the pool area, movie room and of course the games room. It's very high tech but the instructions you receive are easy to understand and very informative. A magical home in a magical place.

A fantastic holiday

For my daughters Stephanie's wedding my family 6 adults and 5 children stayed in Star lake manor for three weeks in March and had a brilliant time. the villa had absolutely everything we required and more. It was furnished to a very high standard being spacious and luxurious. My grandkids adored the super pool area, games room, movie room and of course the games consoles. In fact Stephanie actually got married on the outside decking area and it was a perfect day. I would highly recommend this villa, you definitely won't be disappointed. Thank you for sharing your home.

Star Lake Manor; Luxury and Convenience

This property is located so close to Disney that you can view the nightly fireworks from the pool. Beautiful inside and out and is meticulously cared for. The owners were great to work with and provided very helpful instructions about the house and the Orlando area. You won't be disappointed!

A great vacation home

Star Lake Manor is the best Orlando vacation home we have ever stopped in. It is a great location for visiting all of the major attractions that Orlando has to offer. Following our booking a few months before departure we would continue to visit the website to build up our expectations of our up coming trip. We had a great commuication channel with the owners and all questions were answered quickly. When we finally arrived at Star Lake Manor the expectations that we had set, were not met, they were exceeded. Although everything was as described, we were still blown away by everything. We will be rebooking very soon and have alreday made recomendations to our family and friends for their future planned trips. You will not be dissapointed with your stay in this excellant family home.

Wonderful Place!

The house had ample space for 16 of us and was very comfortable. The pool -- even in 47 degree weather -- was warm and thorougly enjoyed by all the kids. The house is close to everything -- even The Kennedy Space Center was just a short drive. Unfortunately, we needed to use the urgent care center (9 stiches in a knee resulted from a Magic Kingdom visit) -- so it was wonderful that the center was just up the street -- I hope no one else needs to use it, but it was great that it was so close! We highly recommend Star Lake Manor and were very sad when our trip was over.

Superb vacation home

The owners have gone to considerable trouble to cater for almost every conceivable whim of any discerning traveller. Everything has been carefully thought out to provide a perfect vacation spot. The whole package is perfect from the facilities to the responsive and helpful Florida based management company. I have stayed in the Formosa Gardens area 4 times before, and Star Lake Manor beats them all. Don't stay anywhere else.

Our Only Choice for a Disney Home Rental

Our family has now stayed at Star Lake Manor in 2009 and 2010. Any return trip to Disney will include a stay here. It is very close to the theme parks. This home has all the high end amentities we would want in a vacation home. We found it be safe, very clean, well maintained and not lacking in any area. Loved it. We will be back. Great job Paul and Rachel.
