Formosa Gardens Estates is 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

The UK's No.1 Specialist for Orlando & Florida Park Tickets

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!

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.

Other nearby vacation rental communities include Windsor Hills, Emerald Island Resort, Windsor Palms, Acadia Estates plus many more, visit our search page to see a complete list.

Great Villa, Great Holiday!

We travelled to Orlando as a group of 14 family members, including 5 young children. The villa did not disappoint. It was exactly as advertised and it was clear to see why it had such positive reviews. The bedrooms were HUGE with lovely, comfortable beds, lots of storage space for clothes and the en suites were a bonus. The kitchen provided enough utensils to make basic dishes at home in the evenings after busy days exploring Disney and the lounge was a great place to relax and unwind in the evenings. The games room went down a treat with the kids (and the adults too), as did the swimming pool! We all had a great holiday and really enjoyed living in the Villa for 2 weeks - we would definitely stay here again if we returned to Orlando.

ABSOLUTE PARADISE

When my brother and I decided we wanted to take our kids and grand kids on a family vacation to Florida and Disneyworld, we started searching on the Internet for a house to rent that would accommodate all 17 of us. The house that we found of Alan's in Formosa Gardens Estate fit the bill perfectly. We couldn't have been more pleased. The home was well-kept and clean. When we arrived, the hot tub and pool heater were not working, and the Property Management company was called and responded immediately. We even managed to catch a fish in the stocked pond! We would definitely rent this house again, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a large rental home in a great location, close to everything. Thanks, Alan - it was AMAZING! Submitted: March 27, 2015 Recommended for: Families with young children, Girls getaway, Romantic getaway, Families with teenagers OWNER response: Thanks for your Great Review, I am so Glad we Reacted to your Problems as soon as possible.........And that Lake is still "Full of Fish" Alan

The perfect Disney family home base

I spent a lot of time reading reviews of dozens of different houses in the Orlando area planning my family’s Big Disney Holiday before settling on Alan’s house in Kissimmee. We were not disappointed! My family of nine people, including 3 kids arrived and were truly blown away at the size (much larger than we needed in reality, but that was no bad thing), appearance, location and facilities of this house. It’s really hard to fault. Fastidiously clean, heated pool (which the kids made full use of every day!), serenely quiet neighbourhood and a beautiful south-facing outlook over a lake. On top of than that, it really is about a 10 minute drive to any park in Disney and whatever restaurant and store you could want/need within a few minutes of the house. The agency taking care of the house were super responsive too - A beeping smoke alarm had its battery replaced within 20 minutes of my making a phone call. In short, we all had a wonderful holiday thanks in no small part to Alan & Joye’s house. We’d love to go back and do it all again. Recommended for: Families with young children, Age 55+, Families with teenagers. Owner response: Hi Gareth. Thank You for your Review, Any time you want to Return, just Contact me, and I always do a Special Deal for my Repeat Guests. Alan

FANTASTIC!

We had our family reunion here over the Labor Day Weekend to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary! This home was perfect for all of us and it had everything you could possibly need! The home is spacious enough that when we retired to our bedrooms, it felt like we were alone. The kids loved the game room which has a billiard table and an air-hockey table. The pool is absolutely amazing, changes colors at night and was big enough for volleyball! The hot-tub easily seats 10 and creates a really cool waterfall into the pool! One day, we actually spent the entire day in the pool enclosure bbq-ing, playing games and just chillin'! As my father is in a wheelchair, the accessibility made it a breeze to accomodate him in all areas of the house on the first floor. We are a family of cooks so we utilized every inch of the kitchen which was fully equipped with every utensil one would possibly need. If you are more apt to eat out, there is a major road with all the chain restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, etc. just a mile away. Though all of that is at your disposal, the secure gated community the home is situated in, is quiet and safe. A big plus too is the quick access to major highways which will take you to any of Orlando's attractions in minutes. The lake that the house sits on is beautiful and my nephew pulled 2 BIG large-mouth bass out of it within minutes of fishing! I HIGHLY recommend this home to every and any large group that is looking for a clean and fun-filled stay! Stayed: August 2014Submitted: September 8, 2014

Great House for Large Families or Groups

For our third annual "Family Girls' Trip" we were looking for a place 16 of us could stay together in a city with a variety of activities and an airport. The Waters Edge in Orlando was perfect! Booking the house was easy, we worked directly with the owner. We liked the keypad system for the front door - no need to worry about who has the key. The pool alarm system took us awhile to remember but was great since we had three toddlers with us. With four large bedrooms (three with private baths) on the first floor, and three more bedrooms and baths on the second floor, everyone had a comfortable, spacious, beautifully decorated bedroom. The main living area was large enough for us all to gather in one place for dining and visiting. Our favorite spot, though, was the patio and pool area. With the pool heated, we were able to swim in March, and we also used the hot tub. The house sits on a small lake, so the view from the pool area was pretty and relaxing. We enjoyed eating dinners outside, too. Disney World, Sea World, Downtown Disney, outlet malls and other shopping are just a few of the attractions that are within a half hours drive from the house. We enjoyed the house so much, though, we spent most of our time together there. If we ever return to Orlando as a large group, we would definitely consider staying at The Waters Edge.

Great House, Great Location, Great Vacation

Loved our trip to Orlando, especially staying at this fine property. We were a large family group, but somehow anyone who wanted some quiet and private space could find it. The layout of the house worked so well for us; grandparents had quiet spots to sleep, teens could sleep in, little kids could be noisy and the moms and dads could read! The pool area is quite lovely, backing onto a lake with no neighbours to look at. Very nice! We kept the adults downstairs in the 4 masters (one is a queen room with a bathroom right out side, the other 3 are kings with ensuites) and put the kids upstairs (2 bedrooms with twin beds and one with 2 sets of bunks - 2 bathrooms upstairs). I love staying places where my kids do not have to share a bed. They sleep better and there is no complaining! We chose not to do parks (save one day at Universal) but the location! We were about 20 max to everywhere we'd want to go: parks, shopping, groceries, airport. Super Target and Publix are less than 10 min away. The kids loved the games room, the hot tub got a lot of use too. We did find that the coloured pool lights were quite dim but that's really minor. Also, remember to push the button before opening the door or the pool alarm will go off. It took a few of us a day or so to remember that one! We really appreciated the large amount of plates and cups, the laundry room and the speed with which our concerns were dealt with (one of the buttons for the pool alarm was not working upon arrival, but was quickly fixed the next day). Thanks again, Alan! Stayed: March 2014Submitted: April 4, 2014

Excellent house for reunion and wheelchair friendl

This is a wonderful house for a family reunion, even with my 88 year old mother in a wheelchair! One of the master bathrooms has hand rails to help at the toilet and in the shower. The room has wide doors to easily allow wheelchair entry. The owner has a ramp to the front door and a ramp to the backyard pool area. The house has many great amenities that kept a group of 16 fully entertained: the pool, spa, games room, large great room with a lot of seating for conversations, and BBQ. It is conveniently located just south of Disney World and has a near-by market and pizza place. The management company quickly responded to minor problems with the house, once they were there within 30 minutes! We truly enjoyed our stay at the house. Stayed: March 2014Submitted: April 13,

Couldn't have asked for anything better!

Our family of 9 adults and 5 kids stayed here in early January. It was everything that was promised and more. We enjoyed the property immensely and would stay here again in a heartbeat. We had master bedrooms and baths for the four married couples and enough rooms and beds for everyone else. It is about as close to Disney as you can get without being on property. The pool and hot tub were fantastic. We hated to leave and everyone want to come back. Stayed: January 2014Submitted: January 20, 2014

New years day bowl trip -- extended family!

13 Family members, 6 adults & 7 kids, rented this home over new years to see our college team play in the Citrus bowl. It exceeded all of our needs, and had plenty of space for everyone. Great game room in the garage. Wonderful pool and hot tub. Outlet malls were close for shopping.

Great Disney Vacation

Great vacation home for our family of 14. We had room to spare. The villa was large and clean. The pool and hot tub were awsome. We were close to all the Disney attractions and Seaworld.The bedrooms were large and quiet. We cooked half of all our meals at home both inside and out on the grill. Well equiped house. Didnt have time to fish in the 2 lakes but the equipment was there. When we go back to Florida we will stay at The Waters Edge. Stayed: November 2013Submitted: November 22, 2013

Joyful experience

Our party of 13 all enjoyed a great holiday staying at this very comfortable villa. We had 5 children of various ages from 9 to 14 and there was plenty of room for them to enjoy the pool and games room. As the doors outside were alarmed we never had to worry that our disabled granddaughter would get outside on her own as she is partially sighted. There was plenty of comfortable furniture inside and out and the floor aroun the pool was never slippery The local shops were open early and closed late. We can reccomend the red lobster and the Outback Steakhouse for tasty meals. You are very close to all the disney parks ( 10 mins away) with Seaworld and universal about 20mins away. There was always something to watch aroun the lake from ducks to eagles and the raccoons came around in the evening. The boys enjoyed fishing and caught quite a few. The kitchen had everything you required, and we used the barbeque a few times. There is every thing you need for a relaxing holiday and we will reccomend this villa to anyone! Many thanks to all Stayed: October 2013Submitted: November 10, 2013

WOW!!!

This was the icing on the cake of our Orlando vacation!!! Our group of friends stayed in this stunning 7-bedroom property inside a gated community close to the Disney theme parks from a Thursday-Tuesday in early summer. "The Waters Edge" is a beautiful home with great finishes, a sound system that reaches the whole house, and a beautiful enclosed pool and hot tub. After being out all day it was fantastic to come back and relax in the hot tub. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare dinners so that you don't have to waste money eating out. Alan, the property owner, was always very responsive to email, and answered any questions we had. Upon renting the property we were given a detailed manual with easy instructions for getting into the community and house, and operating the pool and sound system. Everything was easy-breezy! We loved our stay and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! We're hoping to reserve the exact same property next year when we return to Orlando :-). Stayed: May 2013Submitted: June 6, 2013

Incredible!

There are not enough accolades for this property! It is fabulous. Where do I begin? Rooms are spacious and the decoration throughout is noteworthy of photos and googling Chinese culture. You will be spoiled with silk pillows in the living area with multi-recliners and sofas. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, along with all the little things you forget (ex. Scissors, etc). More dishes and pots and pans than in your own kitchen! Each bedroom has it's own TV and walk in shower. Tubs for the 2 larger downstairs. The pool is more than incredible! Have it heated for sure. That and the spa and lighting will make you think you are in heaven! My children and grandsons had a wonderful time and the Godfrey's were a dream to deal with!

Way To Go For a Family

The house was perfect for our family reunion of 14 people. It is near all the attractions and on the prettiest,most private lot in the subdivision, looking out on the lake. The roads in the area were very quiet which was nice for walking and running. We all enjoyed the pool and eating meals out in the lanai. It was very reassuring to be able to contact Alan so easily regarding every aspect of the rental. There are many extras like towels and baby equipment but we were glad to have the Winn Dixie close for things like kleenex, paper towels, soap,cleaners. All in all a great experience and we would certainly recommend this property. Stayed: December 2012Submitted: January 14, 2013

Excellent property for family gathering in Disney. We were there at Christmas. The parks were crowded as expected but there was plenty of room in the house for everyone to get some space.

Brilliant, just brilliant!!!

From start to finish, dealing with Alan was an absolute joy. After initial email communication, Alan was very quick to pick up the phone and call me to discuss any questions I had regarding the booking process. Alan spoke very highly of his Florida home and when we arrived we weren't disappointed. The villa is simply stunning and has absolutely everything you could possibly need. Upon arrival we discovered the BBQ wasn't working so we called the management company. Within 30 minutes a very pleasant man called Pete arrived, checked the BBQ and told us he'd replace it that day. An hour later Pete returned with a brand-new BBQ which was fantastic. Our entire 2 week stay was faultless - I really can't enthuse enough about the villa. There were 11 of us (9 adults and 2 children) but the villa is so large that we really felt at home - never cramped or getting under each other's feet. The location of the villa is also ideal. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and of course, all of the parks are very close and so easy to get to. We hope to return to Orlando within the next few years and when we do I'll definitely be in contact with Alan straight away! This villa made our stay the holiday of a lifetime!!!! Thanks Alan!

Fantastic place to stay for all ages

We stayed for 11 nights at the Waters Edge in March 2011. Its our second visit to Orlando, and our second stay at this villa. Although my wife and I had stayed here before, we had friends with us this time which really added to the magic of staying in such a fantastic place.

Great Villa, Great Holiday!

We travelled to Orlando as a group of 14 family members, including 5 young children. The villa did not disappoint. It was exactly as advertised and it was clear to see why it had such positive reviews. The bedrooms were HUGE with lovely, comfortable beds, lots of storage space for clothes and the en suites were a bonus. The kitchen provided enough utensils to make basic dishes at home in the evenings after busy days exploring Disney and the lounge was a great place to relax and unwind in the evenings. The games room went down a treat with the kids (and the adults too), as did the swimming pool! We all had a great holiday and really enjoyed living in the Villa for 2 weeks - we would definitely stay here again if we returned to Orlando.
