Formosa Gardens in Florida 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 Garden 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.
Built around a central lake (Star Lake), many of these Formosa Gardens Florida 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. 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 newly opened 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 vacation rentals on Formosa Gardens 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 Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden, Logans Roadhouse 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!

Perfect holiday home
Formosa Palm Villa was the perfect base for our small family to unwind after a busy day at the parks. Everything from the beautiful plush carpets, inviting spa, comfortable family area and walk-in showers were perfect. Everything worked as it should and any instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We didn't have to go hunting around for things like dishwasher powder or bin bags. I feel like I should mention the walk-in showers again as they were EXCELLENT, so easy to use and really helped after a full day of roller coasters. This was a perfect holiday home.

Perfection in a vacation rental
High expectations were set by the prompt response and information pack sent by Carol, the content of which would win gold if such a thing were an Olympic event. The location and house matched those extremely high standards. 10 minutes or so to the Disney parks, close to excellent shops and restaurants and conveniently close to routes that allow one to escape the parks when needed and head to either coast. The house itself was immaculately clean and was fitted and furnished superbly. A lovely balance between feeling like a prestigious home and a homely home at the same time. There is plenty of space for privacy in a group but at the same time, the flow of the house makes for several great gathering areas. The kitchen includes a fantastic fridge freezer and all imaginable items. Things such as washing powder and such being included may seem minor, but all of these small touches contribute towards the feeling that nothing is too much trouble and has been carefully thought through. The bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms excellent. The Games Room has one of the best pool tables that I have come across in a private home. The pool area is great and the pool itself is a good shape for swimming. Mickey Mouse shaped pools look good from the air, but try swimming around one! The pool area is discretely concealed by the surrounding vegetation and felt very private. We have stayed in many properties around the world over the years and I would confidently recommend this vacation home without hesitation. I am already plotting how we can make a return visit. To know that everything is as described and exceeds the expectations is a great way to start a holiday.

The house, the surroundings and not least the exceptional service minded owner of the house made the stay incredibly good. The house is the highest standard where everything works to perfection. It clearly shows that the owner goes beyond what can be expected to make it a great stay for any occupants. We were throughout met with outstanding support with immediate help if a question arose. We would select this house again any time, due to the high standard and amazing service level.

Thank you for your review, Bjoern, and I am of course delighted that you were happy with the house and the service I provided. Kind regards, Carol
This house is wonderful !
Nothing I can think of that I could honestly say would make the stay more pleasant - it was wonderful! The house was absolutely immaculate, which is such a wonderful find in a rental property! Often the surface appears clean but there are dark corners...not so in your house! We found everything as advertised, there was nothing at all lacking and we appreciated all of the little touches like laundry detergent. We loved the pool and the proximity to the parks. We would love to come back again not to go to the parks, but simply to enjoy the house! :)

Fabulous vacation villa
Carol: We thoroughly enjoyed your home. As a family we have been fortunate enough to do some extensive travel. Hands down our entire experience dealing with you has been the best we have ever had. From the time we made initial contact with you to the full information package we received with the toll coins, detailed maps, things to do etc. was all something we have never experienced before. We felt so comfortable going to your home. The full alarm and door procedure was so clear and detailed that we had no issues. The home was as you had described, was spotless, well stocked and the labels were great. The beds were amazingly comfortable. It is a beautiful area and very quiet. Grocery store and restaurants within 5-10 minutes. Disney longest drive was 20 minutes. Animal kingdom 10 minutes. Beyond this, Carol, I find it hard that I can't find one thing that was wrong or would have made our stay better. It was fabulous. Don't mind you sharing our name and comments and would also be happy if anyone ever wanted to touch base re our experience. Again we had an amazing time, loved your home and there were no surprises which is always nice to arrive and find a place as promised. Thank you, Carol. Warm regards Wayne and Raschelle Bodenstab

Lovely home on Formosa Gardens Estates
We were delighted with our stay at Formosa Palm Villa. Carol went above and beyond from our first contact until the day we left. Every question we had was answered quickly and thoroughly, and the pre-arrival pack gave us an abundance of information and helpful maps. The villa was absolutely lovely, even nicer than the photos. All of the furnishings are in great condition, and very comfortable. The modern televisions and fast wifi made evenings in very enjoyable. Having ceiling fans in all the rooms was another bonus. All in all, we could not have asked for a better, more comfortable or convenient home in which to spend our holiday. If we are lucky enough to return to Orlando, Formosa Palm Villa will definitely be our first choice!

First Class Villa in a First Class Location
We have been holidaying in Orlando for the last 18 years and this is the best villa we have stayed in. The villa is very well maintained and is in a very good location to visit the Disney Parks. The owner was very professional from the initial contact to the very prompt refund of the security deposit. The villa was very well equipped even down to a teapot and providing washing powder. The pool and deck area are wonderful and very welcoming after a full day at the theme parks. We would very much like to be able return soon.

Thank you, Karen, for your lovely review. I know you are hoping to stay again next year so I will look forward to hearing from you when you know your dates.
Beautiful relaxing villa
We have been visiting Florida for almost 30 years and have stayed in many villas. Carol and Roger's Villa at Formosa Gardens is certainly the best we have stayed in. The villa has everything you need for your holiday and is furnished and equipped to an excellent standard. The pool is fabulous and great for relaxation. The villa is located in the beautiful setting of Formosa Gardens Estates which itself is a few minutes from shops, supermarkets, restaurants and of course Disneyworld. It is the perfect house in a perfect location. We have stayed there on a few occasions, most recently in September/October this year.
Thank you again Roger and Carol for a wonderful three weeks and we look forward to staying there again next year.

Thank you Jim & Morag for the lovely review of our home and I am so pleased you have booked to return again next year.
We have spent many years staying in and around Orlando, but this home in Formasa Gardens tops them all. The location is ideal (10 mins from Disney), with plenty of good resturants nearby; the villa is in excellent condition with an excellent pool and above all, the owners were helpful and accommodating from start to end.
I'd recommend this villa to anyone, but get in quick! I look forward to staying again soon.

Hi Dan.... delighted that you enjoyed staying at our house and we will look forward to hearing from you again soon ....
From the first time we were in contact with Carol, the owner, to the very speedy refund of our deposit our experience of Formosa Palm Villa has been first class and we would not hesitate to recommend it to our family and friends and anyone else looking for a perfect villa which is situated just a short 5 minute drive from all the Disney parks.
Where to start? Throughout the booking process Carol was so helpful and then to receive a wonderful and such detailed information pack from Carol before we left was so thoughtful of Carol - Carol even went to the length of enclosing 3 quarters to use on the toll road on our trip from the airport!
The villa is simply amazing and to list everything would take too long, again Carol has put so much thought into making this a real home from home and made numerous 'little' touches to make our stay so easy and enjoyable.
All the rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard, each having their own TV.
The beds were so comfy, perfect for getting a great nights sleep after a day in the parks and splashing around in the villa pool!
The pool area was stunning, very private and perfect for either relaxing or enjoying the gorgeous pool, as our 3 children did every day!
The huge kitchen area has all the modern appliances you could ever need and more! Simply wonderful, as were the high tec washer and tumble drier.
The games room was so much fun, daily pool and table soccer games were held which just added to the whole experience.
As I say it would be impossible to list everything we enjoyed, but the whole family simply had a fantastic time and would like to say a huge thank you to Carol for sharing her gorgeous home with us, hopefully we will return one day!!!

An Absolute Gem
Having stayed in various villas over the last 20 years, we found this beautiful home and now only ever want to stay here. This is our fourth stay and each time it only gets better. The owners have furnished and equipped the house to an exceptionally high standard and the photos really don’t do it justice. This trip we found a new 65” TV in the main living room! The house is always spotlessly clean and has everything anyone could need.
Thank you again for another wonderful stay in your home and we can’t wait to go back again….

FANTASTIC TWO WEEK VACATION
Formosa Gardens Estate is a well maintained, quiet and peaceful area of Kissimmee with some fantastic properties positioned just off the 192 and all within 5 minutes drive of the Disney Parks. Formosa Gardens is a gated community and the property benefits from a monitored alarm system, which can give you peace of mind whilst holidaying.
The homeowners have gone to great lengths to ensure that the property is available at the highest standards and the rental process is as simple as possible. We have been holidaying in Florida for many years, but this is the first time that a homeowner has provided an information pack prior to travelling, including maps, directions, information on local shop and restaurants.
As for the property itself, it is extremely well maintained with high quality appliances and furnishings. The pool is bathed in sunshine from sunrise to sunset and the hot tub is a perfect way to end a busy day.
We had a fantastic stay in this villa and would highly recommend it to others and a huge thank you to the homeowners for making the effort they do to ensure our stay was a memorable one.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VILLA
Having never booked a villa through a website, we were a little apprehensive at what to expect, but after the first email received from Carol, we knew that we had nothing to worry about. Throughout the entire booking process and stay, Carol was an absolute pleasure to deal with, extremely helpful and answered our many questions swiftly.
The information pack received was very detailed, maps, villa and area info was invaluable!
From the moment we walked in to Formosa Palm Villa, we knew we had made the right choice! Immaculately clean and fresh, we could see the pride of ownership.
I really don't know where to begin to describe this gorgeous home!!!
Actually, it is far lovelier than even presented in the pictures. Every detail has been thought of from the high quality furnishings, new appliances, to the more than plenty plates, dishes, cutlery, towels etc. The villa was immaculate, bedrooms far exceed expectations including the quality of the beds and the bedding. The pool, spa and lanai are perfect and not overlooked, making the outlook from the pool area, private, tranquil and so very relaxing. We loved spending time at the pool, which got the sun from early morning until late at night and sitting in the spa with a glass of wine at the end of the day, was just wonderful.
Formosa Gardens estate is easy to find and is very close for the parks, the malls, restaurants and all manner of activities, yet is set just far enough off the main road to ensure privacy.
This villa has everything you could wish for and we would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends & relatives and even complete strangers, as they too, would be impressed with the high standard shown in this home.
Would we come back to Formosa Palm Villa....ABSOLUTELY, in a heart beat.
A huge "Thank You" to Carol for her help and for allowing us the privilege of spending time in her wonderful Florida home!
We'll be back

Wow!! What a really fabulous villa – so beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and with brand new appliances I would just love to have at home. The crushed ice on tap was especially popular. So much effort has gone into equipping this home - you really have thought of everything a family could need for a brilliant holiday. The pool & spa is just perfect – secluded and yet with a lovely view from the pool deck. Fantastic villa, fantastic location - we will most definitely be back again. Also, Thank you so much Carol for all the pre-holiday information – everything we needed to get ourselves organised for the perfect vacation.
