About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 2 King En-Suites, Sleeps 8

Gardenia Villa will appeal to the most discerning guest who requires the most exquisite 4-bedroom villa available. Located in Formosa Gardens, the most prestigious development in the Disney area. On one-third acre of magnificent landscaped gardens, it offers total privacy. The 30ft pool and jacuzzi get the sun from early morning but the large covered lanai provides some shade and a ceiling fan. The huge extended pool deck has an abundance of super-comfort furniture for ultimate relaxation. The villa is elegantly furnished and spacious. The lavish accommodation consists of: 2 king en-suite bedrooms; 2 large twin rooms which share a full bathroom; 2 sitting areas; 2 dining areas; a fully equipped cherry mahogany kitchen with corian counter tops; laundry room. All bedrooms have TV and ceiling fans. Family room has a 50' HDTV, DVD player, ceiling fan. Digital safe. Security alarm. All telephone calls are free. WiFi - for your laptop. In short, every comfort and amenity possible.

Location Description: Gardenia Villa is situated in Formosa Gardens Estates, a secure gated community. It is a quiet, peaceful area yet only 1 mile from a supermarket, 7 excellent restaurants, pharmacy, walk-in clinic and a variety of other shops. It is conveniently located within 5 minutes of Disney's Main Gate - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM Studios). Also nearby: Animal Kingdom, Cirque du Soleil, 24-screen Movie Theaters, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Wet 'n Wild. For shopping, Florida Mall, Mall at Millennia, Orlando Premium Outlets and Prime Outlets (formerly Belz) are a short drive.

Gardens: The huge gardens surrounding Gardenia Villa have been landscaped and lighting brings them to life at night, thereby making it a very comfortable place to relax with a drink in the pool or jacuzzi after a hectic day in the stores or theme parks. There are several citrus fruit trees - orange, lemon, ruby red grapefruit and when in season these fruits are available for the enjoyment of our guests.

Very nice house and accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in this fantastic villa and we had a great time. The house is located in a very nice well kept area and the house itself was in really good condition and very clean. It definitely lived up to the photos and we were very positively surprised. The location was also good for day trips to the various parks and outlets in Orlando. Most of them could be reached in 20-30 min by car.

We were there 2 adults and 2 children but could easily have fitted in another family of the same size.

The owners were very friendly and accommodating with the few requests we had.

I can only recommend the villa, and we hope to return soon.

A superb villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Villa and we fully intend on making a third as soon as we can.

The interior is spotless, very well maintained and very spacious. The garden and pool area are lovely and ideal for a relaxing dip at the end of a busy day at the Parks or the Malls.

The Pool area is great also for spending a leisurely day at the villa, with the sun from quite early in the morning, until it sets.

The owners (who live nearby) are incredibly helpful, both prior to the trip and once there - although they are never intrusive.

The pictures of the Villa and Pool/Garden almost do it justice - however it's only when you are there, that you appreciate how good it all is.

The gated 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.

We would recommend this villa to friends & relatives and even complete strangers, as they too, would be impressed with the standard.

There were 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 rapidly growing children aged 11,13 & 15, who all want to come back to Florida and in particular to this lovely villa.

Great property and great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our yearly vacation, and we were all very pleased with the accomodations of property 10939. Foremost, it was very well maintained and very clean. The home has everything you could possibly need. It is spacous and also comfortable. The pool was wonderful. The location is great since it is close to all of the attractions-- and has easy access to other locations in Orlando. We will definitely consider this home next visit!!
