This secluded villa is tucked away on the prestigious Formosa Gardens Estate at Orlando.

Formosa Gardens is one of the most sought after addresses for visitors to the Orlando area. It is an exclusive gated community and all the villas have a large plot. It is as close to Disney as you can get unless staying on Disney Property ,so there are no long waiting lines in traffic to get to the parks.

This villa is not overlooked and faces south so the pool area is bathed in sunlight all day.

The villa comes fully equipped with everything a holiday maker will require for a relaxing time. Each bedroom has a cable TV and DVD player

'Ariel's Den' Has a Wii connected to a pink flat screen TV, for many hours of Fun for all the children

The games room is equipped with pool table, air hockey and electronic darts.a large TV connected to PC3 Play station for all the Family to have fun,

Also their is a Walk Machine to use when it is to 'Hot' to enjoy a walk round the Beautiful Formosa Gardens Estate.

The pool area is well Provided with Loungers Tables and Chairs. A Lanai provides shade from the noon sun.Pool and spar heating (is by arrangement) but the' Hot Tub' is on all the time and is Complementary

Perfect location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

Two families stayed here during Thanksgiving week. This house had everything we needed. The kids enjoyed the game room and the pool. This house was located in great area. It was right down the street from a grocery store and restaurants. It was about a 5 minute drive to Disney. The owner Tony was a pleasure to work with! He answered any questions within a 24 hour period if not sooner. We will definitely keep this home in mind for the next time we visit the Orlando area.

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed in Formosa Gardens before and thought it was the perfect location - lots of space between the villas and very close to Disney and plenty of restaurants. So we were hoping that this villa would be as good as our previous one and we were not disappointed.

The location was excellent, very quiet and relaxing (one day we got home to find 2 herons sitting in the garden, which wouldn't happen in the busier parts of Orlando!)

The villa itself was very well looked-after with excellent facilities, and you could tell that it had recently been redecorated. The reclining sofas in the sitting room are particularly comfortable after a hard day of walking. It has a good layout for extended family groups, with the bedrooms spread out around a large central living/dining area.

My 5 year old daughter loved the Ariel bedroom and the games room, and the pool was a good size for a family.

Some of the equipment in the games room could do to be refurbished (i guess that kids hit the sides of the dartboard more than the middle which causes damage) but it did not limit our enjoyment of the facilities.

Overall I would heartily recommend this villa to anyone.

excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We booked with Tony who recently purchased the property and we were not dissapointed. The pictures show the house exactly as it is. The pool was excellent and already headed and warm and private . There were lots of movies, games, etc for all to watch and the TV"s all had high def channels. The games room was a little tired but still fun . Tony even had a christmas tree put up for us as our stay was over Christmas and New Years.

The kitchen was fully stocked and clean. ( best we have ever seen) The management was quick to respond to some very minor issues. The beds were confortable and clean all around. Tony was very easy to deal with and helpful and I would recommend this house to anyone. I am a IATA certified travel agent and would stay there again.

Nearest Airport : Orlando International at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Celebration Reunion at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Carrabas,Cracker Barrel,Buffalo Wild Wings,Joey's, at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Cocoa Beach at 65 Kilometres Car: recommended

Our Villa is in a fantastic location to visit all the major Orlando attractions including the Disney Theme and Water Parks, Sea World and the Universal Studios parks including Harry Potter land.

If shopping is your pleasure why not visit Orlando Premium Outlet Mall, just up the I 4, the Florida Mall shopping complex, just slightly further away or the more upmarket Millenia Mall. The last can be combined with a trip to the Universal Studio Parks.

There are a number of chain restaurants very close buy including the Red Lobster, Australian Outback, Carrabas Italian restaurant, Bufalo Wild Wings Sports Bar, Joey's , Texas Steak House, Longhorn steakhouse,Appelbees all you can eat, Bahama Breeze,Alehouse,and the Olive Garden.Italian,

Cracker Barrel all day Breakfast and fascinating Shopping

If Eating IN is your Preference why not try some fresh local fish from the local Publix supermarket.

Need a rest from the Theme Parks? Lake Louisa State Park is a short distance away whilst air boat rides run regularly at Old Kissimmee. Or why not try jet skiing on Lake Bryan?
