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.

Beautiful home, stunning view, amazing location

We stayed at magic moments in June 2024. The owner, Simon, was helpful throughout the booking process and also when we were there. The villa was stunning, the photos don’t do it justice, bedrooms all well equipped, several areas to eat and kitchen well stocked! The pool area- WOW. Large seating area, sun beds, large pool and the view is so peaceful and amazing to sit in the evening and watch the colours of the sky change. Location was perfect for us, close to US 192 and a short journey to Disney, and access to loads of restaurants along the 192. It worked really well for our extended family, with more than enough space and areas for us. Will definitely be looking to book again in the future when we are lucky enough to go again!

Fabulous Florida Villa

This villa certainly lived up to our expectations. The owner supplied excellent directions enabling us to drive easily to its location. Once we opened the door we knew instantly how special this villa is! It’s so beautiful inside and maintained to the highest standards. The rooms are all very comfortable with plenty of space for everyone in our family to feel totally relaxed. The pool area is an ideal spot for winding down after busy days exploring, with incredible sunset views across the lake. The location is quiet, which we loved, spotlessly clean and has some great wildlife to see (tip: pack some binoculars!). We would highly recommend this villa, it made our holiday so special and we all loved it’s homely feel and high level of comfort. The owner really has thought of everything you could possibly need to ensure a fabulous holiday. It’s also very close to Disney parks and only half hour from Universal. The owner was excellent at responding to any questions we had before and during our holiday, nothing was too much trouble and always replied promptly. We will always have very special memories of this villa!

Thank you - you were a pleasure to have as guests.
Superb property in a fabulous location.

This villa was undoubtedly the best that we have ever stayed in. The facilities, such as the games room and the stunning pool, were fantastic and my family and I certainly enjoyed spending time in these. The beds were exceedingly comfortable and enabled a restful nights’ sleep. The furnishings were modern, clean and fresh and every need was catered for. The location and proximity to the restaurants on the 192 and the Disney parks (especially when using the Sherberth Road shortcut) made travelling around the area quick, easy and simple. Last but by no means least the communication with the owners was second to none. They dealt with any questions or queries in a timely and friendly manner, which was very much appreciated. I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else now and very much hope to return someday soon.

Perfect holiday home

Having stayed at a number of different homes in central Florida area we all agreed that this was our favourite. Formosa Gardens is an ideal location for many of the attractions and is a lovely development just to take a walk around in the evening. The house was very well equipped and extremely comfortable with a fantastic pool area. The lake view with beautiful sunsets will stay long in the memory. Communication with the owner (Simon) was excellent ahead of our stay with all the information you needed to know and once we arrived the local maintenance company were on hand to help with the few queries we had. Would highly recommend and we hope we will be able to return before too long.

Amazing home

We have stayed in many houses on Formosa Gardens over the years and we think that this is the nicest, most well equipped home that we have stayed in. The outlook over the lake is beautiful and the surrounding landscape provides plenty of privacy. The pool area has sun all day and the games room is great for families of all ages. We will definitely be returning!

Magic Moments - everything you might wish for!

We enjoyed the holiday of a lifetime at Magic Moments on Formosa Gardens. We were there for 3 weeks from the end of July through to mid August 2019 and managed to squeeze in almost everything we wanted to do. The luxury villa was very comfortable for 8 adults and 4 children and there was plenty of space both inside and out. The children loved their themed bedrooms and the pool and hot tub were in constant use. There was plenty of outside furniture for both lounging poolside and al fresco dining. If you wished to eat out there are abundant choices of venues within a short distance. The proximity of the villa to the Disney’s Magic and Animal Kingdoms couldn’t have been better. The support and advice we got from Simon throughout the booking, arrival and departure stages of the holiday were second to none. We would all thoroughly recommend the villa as the ideal place to stay for your 5 star Orlando vacation.

At the end of a busy day in the parks it is so nice to come back to the peacefulness of Formosa Gardens. The only downfall was that we had to come home. We look forward to staying in Simons villa again.

Quality Villa

This is an excellent holiday home with a large private west-facing pool. Simon provided extensive information on his home prior to our holiday. He answered all queries fully and promptly - there were many, based on our poor experience of another Formosa Gardens villa two years previously. We need not have been concerned. Everything in the home was presented to a very high standard. The local management company responded swiftly to a couple of minor points. We visit Orlando regularly and this is one of the best villas we've rented. We'd happily return to Magic Moments.

A piece of Paradise

This is my third visit to this home and it just keeps getting better and better. It’s slightly higher in elevation to the other properties around the lake which gives stunning views across the water. These views take my breath away each time I go. The property and grounds are really well maintained and in fairness the reality is even better than the pictures. The Owner is a complete gentleman. Responds quickly and is always helpful. I’m looking at flights again as I write this so 3 visits just isn’t enough. Thank you Simon

Fantastic Villa

From the moment we entered the Formosa Gardens estate we knew we had made the right choice. The villa was outstanding. Beautiful outside, beautiful inside. The villa's position was perfect- south facing, looking out onto the lake and incredible sunset views from the pool area. The villa was spotless, beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The location of the villa suited us perfectly as it was very close to Disney and all other major parks. The outdoor seating area was fantastic- lots of sun loungers and chairs for all the family. The pool was large and very clean. The games room was well equipped and the free wi-fi was a bonus. We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone holidaying in Orlando. We will be sure to rebook on any return visits. Thank you for helping to make our holiday one to remember. The Thomsons.

Amazing holiday

We have just returned from our first visit to this wonderful villa and cannot wait to return. The location is genuinely fantastic; a huge array of restaurants and shops just up the road and only 5 minutes in the car to Walt Disney World. The villa is spacious, super clean and well maintained. We had more than enough space for a large family to relax after a long, hot day and a superb pool with fabulous lake views. It was really a fantastic place to stay. We have been so impressed by the clear communication from the owners, from our initial enquiry to checking we were OK whilst staying at their home. We would thoroughly recommend this property and look forward to our next visit.

A little piece of Heaven!

This was our third visit to Magic Moments, the first with new owner, and we were not disappointed. The villa is beautifully presented and stocked with everything that you could need for the perfect vacation. Ideally placed for the theme parks, it is also just a short drive to supermarkets and a whole range of different places to eat. The villa itself is perfectly set out for a larger party vacationing together with plenty of space to relax without getting under each other's feet! The pool area is private and not overlooked, meaning it is a joy to sit and enjoy the beautiful view - day or night. On the couple of occasions when we needed help, we phoned the management company, who were extremely helpful and friendly. It was great to know that support was only a phone call away. If you are looking for the perfect villa, in the perfect place for the perfect holiday then Magic Moments is it! We can not wait to come back!

Stunning home in a beautiful location

This is a beautiful house in a fantastic location. Everything about the house is first class. We felt totally at home here and the house is extremely well equipped with everything included to make your holiday go well. The furnishings are high quality (as is everything in the house). The pool area is one of the best features of the house, with plenty of sun loungers and you get the sun all day. The views across the lake really make this an outstanding feature of the house. The location is really close to Disney and also easy to get to other parts of Orlando and the outlets for great bargains. Contact with Simon (the owner) was always great and responses very quick. We would highly recommend this property to anyone thinking about booking. We've stayed in many rented holiday properties over the years but this one is by far the best. We will return again - thank you Simon

Never Disappoints!

This is our second visit to Magic Moments Villa and we were even more impressed than the first if that can be possible. The upgrade to granite counter tops in the entire home is exquisite. We all feel at home coming to this villa and never get tired of the beautiful views of Star lake and gorgeous sunsets. The salt water pool is amazing and there is always plenty of loungers and chairs for a large family to access poolside. The addition of the air hockey table to this already awesome games room was fun but we didn't get take advantage of this room as much as we would have liked as we didn't get any rainy days this vacation. Every room in this villa is well appointed and gorgeously decorated and all have big screen tvs. I can assure you that you will not miss home for one second and will only wish you could stay longer! Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us once again Simon, we hope to return next year!! All the best, Cara, Brent, Abby, Joe and Donna Melvin

Magic Moments Villa in the Land of Magic

This was our 15th trip to Orlando/Kissimmee and our 4th villa on Formosa Gardens, and we can definitely say this is the best located home on the best estate. It's far enough off the 192 that it's quiet enough but close enough that you can get anywhere quickly due to its close proximity to Disney & the I4. The villa was lovely, homely and very well looked after. There were plenty supplies for the number of people in the home, ie plates, bowls, cups, towels etc. Simon could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much bother and he was always very quick to respond to any queries. The salt water pool was fantastic, it made bathing in the pool more comfortable and much gentler on the eyes, skin and hair. The sun shone on the pool from morning until night and the views at sunset were amazing. We would highly recommend this home to anyone and we hope to visit again soon with our family!

Magic Moment

We have been going to Florida twice a year for over 35 years and have stayed in a number of VILLAS in different locations Davenport /HYW 27/ Kissimmee /old Lake Wilson etc. Magic Moments in Formosa Garden is by far the best Villa we have ever stayed in both for location and villa specification. • It is truly only 10 minutes to Disney entrance • Very well keep gated community • Magic Moments position enables the pool deck to be hit by the Sun early in the morning to late in the evening. • Villa over looks star lake with 180 deg views of the lake. • You are not over looked, you have full privacy while outside enjoying the large pool • The communication we received from Simon the owner was excellent, made things very simple and you can rent with total confidence. • New Salt water system in the pool is just fantastic!!! The water is softer; your eyes don’t burn while under water, and no chemical smell. The best pool we have ever had. This villa is truly amazing. Everything we could have needed was provided and far more besides. The villa is beautifully furnished while still remaining comfortable and cosy, feels like a home from home, just what you need from a hectic day in the parks. With six bedrooms and the 2 lounge rooms, 10-12 people could easily stay in this villa with space to spare. All mod-cons including a great TV package allowing you to unwind watching a movie. Pool table an air hockey is a great addition, as well as the classic arcade game. The villa is by magic marker 4 just off the 192 so ideal for shopping and so many restaurants within 10 minutes of the villa; however being just off the beaten track you get no traffic noise at all. I would recommend this villa to anyone and look forwards to our next stay in Magic Moments.

Magical holiday at Magic Moments

It is an absolute pleasure to write a review for this property. From the moment we entered the front door it felt like a home from home. The furnishings are sumptuous and elegant. There is plenty of cutlery and crockery, everything was spotlessly clean and I have never seen so many so many bath towels!! Everything worked and helpfully all the switches were labelled for either fan or light - saves a lot of time flicking switches- The pool was superb with a spa at the side. The grandchildren, 4,5 and 10 were ecstatic and now want a pool in their gardens! The property is located in an excellent position within easy reach of Disney and all it's parks as well as all the restaurants on the 192. There is a brilliant supermarket just minutes up the road which has everything you could possibly wish for. Stay at Magic Moments, you won't regret it!!

Formosa Gardens - Dream Villa in Florida

This villa was perfection. What you see in the photos is what you get, a beautifully furnished well equipped villa, all the modcons of home but hotel luxury. A fab base to explore parks from, amazing place to relax in. Centrally located, Disney 20mins, Universal 30mins, 5mins from Route192 with gifts shops, restaurants and supermarkets. The owners were exceptional, fast responded to emails answered all questions, gave advice about parks and area to ensure the most of our 3 week hol.

Magic Moments May 2015

The house is beautiful and immaculately presented. We found it easily and the gate and house codes worked every time. The salt water pool is fabulous and much kinder than the chlorinated ones - can't go back to them now! There were a couple of minor issues during our stay but the management company reacted immediately and efficiently. I thoroughly recommend the house and management (and the owner!).

Best Villa we have visited in 16 trips to Florida!

We have visited Florida a total of 16 times and this is by far the the nicest villa we have stayed in! Right from the booking stage Simon has given all the information we needed and more including any renovation/decorating work which has been updated. The welcome pack and courteous calls we recieved were a nice touch! The villa itself is stunning set on a lovely estate with breathtaking views of the lake. If we are lucky to go back to Florida we would 100% be looking to book again! Thank you Simon & family.

A Wonderful Holiday Experience

Our family rented Magic Moments Villa and we were so happy with our experience. The home is lovely and the pictures are reflective of what you can expect upon arrival. Dealing with Simon was wonderful from the outset. He was very approachable and responded to e-mails immediately. The home was very easy to locate with directions provided. The location of the villa is amazing as it is situated on a large lot overlooking a lake. The pool area experienced sunshine all day and the sunsets were breathtaking. The home is large and could easily handle more guests than our family of eight. The villa was very clean and furnished well. We spent hours in the beautiful pool and spa and enjoyed using the gas grill provided. Our kids really enjoyed the games room especially the arcade game . We felt like we were at the movie theater with the large 65 inch television in the family room. We have rented in the Kissimmee area on three previous holidays and this home by far exceeds all other experiences. Formosa Gardens is a beautiful area located a very short drive to many restaurants , stores and most importantly the Disney Parks. We will always have fond memories of our two weeks at Magic Moments Villa. Thank you Simon.

Magic Moments - Christmas/New Year 2014

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this impressive Villa, a real home from home in terms of facilities and appliances. It's location is simple stunning, with a lovely pool and spa overlooking a beautiful lake, and south facing. Thanks to Simon for making the booking process simple and always being on hand to answer any questions. The villa, set in the gorgeous surroundings of Formosa Gardens, is literally on Disney's doorstep with fast and easy access to all the major attractions. 10/10 rating, would totally recommend.

What an Amazing View

I've stayed at quite a few lake side properties on Formosa Gardens and this House by far has the best lake views (look out for the Hot Air Balloon on Sunday mornings). Formosa Gardens in itself is a stunning development and all the properties are big but the views on this home just took my breath away. You read reviews all the time and part of you is a little sceptical but Simon really is a 'gent'. He replies quickly to emails and is always helpful and even called us into the holiday to check that everything was okay. This home is so tastefully furnished and you can really tell that this is more than a rental home to him. When we arrived he had just installed a new salt water pool system and I was blown away by the fact that after spending time in the pool we didn't smell of chlorine. There were also new granite worktops in all the bathrooms which we weren't expecting when we arrived and it was a wonderful surprise. I will be returning with my family Simon and wondered what dates you have available for November 2016 and if you could just drop me an e-mail ? Thank you Simon for such a wonderful vacation.

Magic Moments is exactly that! A wonderfully spacious villa with fantastic views across the lake, the pool area is large and relaxing with ample loungers and seating. be sure to be up early to see the balloon rides take off in the mornings, we could not fault the villa or the helpfulness of the owners - would highly recommend.

I don't know where to start because we as a family have never had an holiday like this one. The villa magic moments was out of this world,10 star I would say,and to top it all Formosa gardens was stunning as well. When you enter the code in the front door and open it for the first time then the magic begins.Everything you need is there and this villa is total quality.I would like to have a $ for every minute I spent gazing at the stunning views whilst sat pool side. We try to holiday in florida every other year and we like to try out different villas in different locations,but we need not bother spending hour after hour looking on web sites at villas because we have found the very impressive magic moments. The owner Simon is a perfect gent and he even rings you to check all is ok. I feel I must thank you Simon and your excellent team for a wonderful holiday,nothing has been to much trouble. The contact with Simon is top class,his directions to the villa and info pack are brill,and his directions are better than the sat navs. ..We will never forget this holiday and may I once again say thank you to you and your magic moments staff for making our stay so special. Mike Murphy and Family and Lewis family. .

I have visited Disney many times over the years and have stayed at lots of Gated Communities but once you have visited Formosa Gardens it spoils you for anything else. We paid a little more than usual because we were celebrating but the saying "you get what you pay for" certainly rings true. The house plots are very large and this particular home has the most stunning views of the lake. The evening sunsets felt like I was in a different world considering I was only 5 minutes from Disney and we were also central to lots of fantastic Eating Houses to suit all tastes. Some vacation homes squeeze your party in so that they can maximise their income but this home is so special because it has such large bedrooms with 2 living room areas which give you the opportunity to have areas of luxury whilst still feeling relaxed. The 65 inch Smart TV in the lounge was such as experience and I felt so comfortable watching Netflix while the kids played in the games room that I forgot for a moment that I was in fact enjoying someone else's home. Simon is a wonderful host and even though I was happy to deal with the Management Company he couldn't have been more helpful. I can't wait to come back again!

This beautiful home has the best position on Star Lake with perfect sun exposure all day long. Lots of pool deck and loungers with a shaded lanai if you want to get out of the sun. The barbeque was a bonus as well as free international calls. Bedrooms had large flat screen tvs and the games room is awesome. We felt so at home here and the owner, Simon is a pleasure to deal with. We have already inquired about a monthly rate for next year!! You will not regret booking this lovely home, the only regret you will have is not booking it longer!! Thank you for sharing your fabulous home with us Simon. See you soon I hope!

We stayed in this lovely villa in February 2014. Having stayed here in the most exclusive gated community in Orlando, Formosa Gardens , (which is also the closest to Disney -fact!)several times before we expected to be wowed and we were! This home is lovely and equipped with everything you will need for the perfect holiday.flat screen TV's in all bedrooms, free int. telephone calls,wi-fi, amazing games room, which my kids loved, especially the big one- Dad, he loved playing Pac man on the authentic arcade machine.Huge gas BBQ on lanai, and the pool is incredible, huge! Overlooking the lake with birds galore and beautiful sunsets. I could go on and on, the owner was also great to deal with making everything effortless from start to finish. You really won't regret booking this home and you will be the envy of all your friends!!

Fantastic Villa

Magic Moments is located in the most exclusive gated community in the area. It was so convenient for shops, restaurants and parks. The villa overlooks Star Lake and is totally private. The villa was perfect in every way, beautiful furniture perfect décor and extremely clean. The swimming pool and deck area are the largest we have seen and the security measures around the pool gave us total peace of mind ,especially with two young children. This villa is the best we have ever stayed in , and we will be returning in 2015 ,

Fantastic venue for a family holiday

From the very beginning Kevin could not have been more helpful. We found the property easily and it certainly exceeded our expectations. We brought our family out for our Golden Wedding celebration holiday and there was so much room to relax in. The outside areas were great for BBQs and the men LOVED watching the Premier League football on the gigantic TV. We were very impressed with the management company which sorted out a problem really quickly. There are so many restaurants just up the road as well as numerous supermarkets. It really is a great location, especially with the Disney parks 'on the doorstep'. We appreciated the quiet lakeside location after a busy day and the sunsets were quite magnificent. In fact, everything about the villa was excellent and Kevin even telephoned from the Uk during our stay to check it was all satisfactory. Have recommended the villa to all our friends so they can enjoy as many Magic Moments as we did. Thanks Kevin for a wonderful stay!

Best Villa!

We have been Kissimmee quite a few times and this villa is by far the best we have ever stayed in. And will be returning next year making it our third visit to Magic moments, its location is just perfect close to Disney. Dector is to a high standard. All bedroom are large and very comfy. We love the sofa to come home too, after a long day at theme parks, very very comfy. The pool with pool heating is like going into a warm bath, very relaxing.

What can i say about this villa? Being on Formosa Gardens, the location and plot is wonderful. The villa is very spacious and exceptionally clean, with everything you could need. The pool and deck area are spacious and a great place to relax after a 'tough' morning at the parks or shopping! We had a great time and can't wait to go back soon!

Beautiful home, stunning view, amazing location

We stayed at magic moments in June 2024. The owner, Simon, was helpful throughout the booking process and also when we were there. The villa was stunning, the photos don’t do it justice, bedrooms all well equipped, several areas to eat and kitchen well stocked! The pool area- WOW. Large seating area, sun beds, large pool and the view is so peaceful and amazing to sit in the evening and watch the colours of the sky change. Location was perfect for us, close to US 192 and a short journey to Disney, and access to loads of restaurants along the 192. It worked really well for our extended family, with more than enough space and areas for us. Will definitely be looking to book again in the future when we are lucky enough to go again!
