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.

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.

Family Vacation

This was a fantastic villa for a large family vacation. Plenty of room so we weren'ton top of each other. And the kitchen was fitted with pots and pans large enough to cook for a big group.

Florida vacation

The roperty was in a great location, and had the safety of being within a gated community. The rooms were big with ensuite, and the beds were comy. We specially liked the pool, it was great for cooling down at 5he end of the day. There was ample seating outside, which we enjoyed as we ate outdoors every day.

Emperors Orchid

The home fit our needs well. We were 4 adults working in the area. The house was comfortable for all, in a quiet neighborhood near all the attractions of the area. All stores and restaurants areclose by. Communication was fantastic. Any issues we had were addressed quickly and very satisfactory by the host's maintenance team. I would highly recommend this home for a stay of any length in this area and would not hesitate to stay again.

Roomy, exquisite, and relaxing

Perfect place for 3 families to enjoy the pool and whole house without feeling on top of each other. Great proximity to ESPN Wild World of Sports for our soccer needs and Universal for our fun! Very easily accessible to major highways. Highly recommend this place for easy check in and overall amenities offered.

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , .

great for a group of adults

We were a group of moms here for our daughters cheer competition. It was a perfect house because everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. The pool provided a great downtime activity.

Large Family Vacation

I was convinced taking a vacation with a family of 14 in a single house would prove challenging. Much to my surprise, it was simply wonderful. The size and location were simply perfect!

Date of stay:     Reviewer name: , .

Great house but other rentals will Include BBQ Gri

Great house and location but I missed the fact if you wanted to heat the spa / pool there was an extra $50 per day fee and there was no BBQ grill. If you wanted a grill, you had to rent from outside company for an extra $30 per day. We rented our houses in this neighbor and the grill & heated pool / spa was included in the price. It was my fault for not reading the entire property description and assuming all rentals were the same.

Great stay.

The spaciousness and 4 king size beds with their own baths is perfect for multiple couples. The gated community also adds an element of security.

Great location. Gated neighborhood safe!

Location was great, closed to stores. Love the fact that it was a gated community. Also nice and quiet.

Fun family stay

The property is as pictured and was a comfortable stay for our family of 10. The community is gated and the home is on a cul-de-sac so it's quiet. Publix, Walmart, Target, CVS, liquor stores and many restaurants are within a 3-mile drive, but 192 can get quite heavy with traffic. Rooms are a good size, and enough seating for meals, including seating on the lanai. Good sized refrigerator and large freezer. Plenty of plates, cups and utensils. Could have used a few more server dishes for big group meals, but otherwise there was enough cookware. Pool is a good size and enough seats for lounging. Everyone enjoyed the game room in the garage. My biggest complaint is that the original listing included a grill, which was an important selection criteria because the central event of our vacation was an extended family cookout. I discovered AFTER booking that it did NOT have a grill, and I had to rent one ($80/week). There was no referral to a specific vendor and the vendor I contracted never actually delivered the grill. This quite obviously negatively impacted the event. The owner has since updated the listing. Note to Renters: DO NOT leave food out on counters. Before we even brought food, we noticed tiny ants on the counters. The kitchen was clean, but it's just a Florida thing. Also, bring bath soap because the starter soaps won't last more than a day or two. Note to owner: You need more washcloths - there were only 4 in the house which is not enough for all guests. It would be good to get placemats to protect your kitchen and dining tables, and inside door mats - especially from the lanai to the kitchen. The remote control in the family room has a puncture hole on the down arrow button and it would be good to store extra batteries as several remotes did not work. Also, the drainage in some of the showers should be addressed (especially MBA-1).

Thank you for your honest review so we can address your concerns for future guests.
Magical stay away from home

My family & I stayed here and we all had a great time with each other at this beautiful home. There was plenty of room for the 14 family member to spread out. The house is just as described in the description. The host was very accommodating from the very beginning and his response was all in a timely manner. When there was a issue or concern it was resolved in a reasonable time. I would definitely recommend staying at this home as I will when I am in this area again. THANK YOU MR. DEREK and your staff for making our Family Reunion a success.

The villa was exactly as described and pictured.

The villa was exactly as described and pictured. There was enough space for our group of 10 people. There was enough crockery and cutlery for more than 10 people. There was a small problem with the screen over the pool which was rectified with in 2 days but didn’t distract us from enjoying the pool in any way. The owner reached out to us in the first instance and was very approachable. I would recommend this villa to anyone with a large group.
