Description

WOW!! Even the other villa owners say this about our home, If you are looking for the best go no further. This is strictly for you sun-seekers, as apart from visiting the Mouse; the sun after all is another great reason to visit Florida. This home has a elegantly shaped 36' x 20' heated 'Hollywood' Style designer-pool,with its on fibre optic light show, changing the colour of the water every 30 seconds on a huge 60'x 54' south-facing deck, so you can soak up the sun all day, or relax in our enormous 10-person hot-tub, with your friends and family, while watching the magnificent sunset over Star Lake, cool drink in hand, after your gruelling day at Disney.If the heat gets you, relax in the air-conditioned splendour of the villa, and the family room with its gigantic, ceiling hung SmartT.V. screen with the Home Theatre surround sound, better than a cinema, whilst chilling-out under our unique amazing fans. If you have the energy how about a game of Air Hockey, Pool, or darts, or the PS-2 games console in the Bada Bing games room, and if the kids are beating you, send them upstairs, while you open up your Laptop, in our WI-FI enabled home, or you can feign an injury and get yourself a Rolling-Ball Back-rub on one of our two Robotic Massage Chairs, or why not try your luck, Fishing in our Lake with our Fishing Rods.When it's time for bed the cosseting continues, with our sumptuous King pillow-top mattresses in the three masters and the Queen, believe me you just won't want to get out of these things, and why should you, especially with TV/DVD/VCR 27'/LCD 37' combos in the masters, and 20' TV/DVD combos in all other bedrooms, with over 200 hundred satellite channels, including Fox Sports and the Golf Channel and HBO, we even have a Huge sound system to pipe music to every room on the ground floor including the lanai and pool deck, part of villa living is the absence of people knocking on your door hassling you to make up the room, so you can stay there as long as you like, after all this is your home for now. And it has everything you would expect it to have and more; fully equipped kitchen, laundry-room, towels, do not bring anything but your clothes. Any problems, there is a management company on call 24/7 to help you.This magnificent home is situated between the Moon and Star lakes on Formosa Gardens, in its own ¼ acre lot, assuring you of the privacy that you deserve. If you don't know, Formosa Gardens is renowned throughout the world as the premier gated-community with its close proximity to Disney and shops. This house has been designed in an stunning Oriental theme, and no expense has been spared on this seven-bedroom six-bathroom home..............I have Upgraded upstairs, so that we now have two Double Bunk Beds in two of the Rooms, Four in Total, Each Bed Sleeps Three (Double on the Bottom, One on the Top) so we can now Sleep Six in each of the Bedrooms, the Seventh Bedroom is Two Single Twins. We can now Sleep 22 in the Whole Villa.

Absolutely excellent accommodation and location!
Left on Sep 24, 2018 for a stay in Sep 2018
There were 13 (adults) of us looking to stay somewhere central for a golf trip. I couldn't have picked a better place! The villa was amazing, well kitted out, and absolutely perfect for our stay. Beds were comfortable, linen was clean, towels plentiful. TV/media was excellent to keep us entertained before leaving for dinner in the evening, and the pool kept those who used it happy. The large reclining settee was excellent for relaxing on after a day on the golf course. The air-conditioning was excellent and there were no complaints from any of the guys. The games room/garage was excellent and kept many a dollar changing hands as we amused ourselves. There was an excellent large tub washing machine and 2 dryers that allowed us to travel light. Very easy to use and quick cycles. Great big driveway that easily took our mini-bus and mini-van without encroaching on the sidewalk/pavement. Only a 2/3 minute drive away were a host of restaurants and shops, including a Walmart Superstore. The 192 is the main route through Kissimmee and there's no end of things to do within minutes of the villa, including Disney Parks or Universal. I would highly recommend this accommodation for adult groups or for families alike. There's a warning alarm to alert you to pool access, so no chance of kids wandering out unannounced, which was a good idea. We treated this as a game, and if you forgot to press the button to silence the alarm before opening the door, you had to put a dollar in the kitty. We ended up with $52, so a few forgetful people in the crowd! Haha.

We had 5 families, 22 total persons! We loved the time we spent together at the pool and at mealtimes! My husband and I take our kids and their kids on a vacation every year; this is the first year we rented a house where we could all stay together. We also visited Universal. It was awesome! The grandkids and kids will talk about this year’s vacation for years!

From start to finish this has been a dream. It is always difficult finding a villa to suit everyones needs. Will it be as the pictures show? Is everything legit? We all have the same concerns. We were a family of 12 + a six month old baby and we stayed here for three weeks in July/August 1018. There was lots of space for everyone to have their privacy yet lots of communal space too. All the fixtures and fittings were top notch. The laundry room was great and it was also great to have air con in the games room for the air hockey and pool leagues! Outside was beautiful, lots of space to sit. A lovely BBQ and a pool that was used everyday. It was great to do the parks in the morning and come back to 'chill out' in the afternoon. There is a brand new Walmart only a 5 minute drive away which was really convenient. Alan, the owner has been brilliant at every point. Answering all my questions promptly. He has owned the property for 15 years and clearly loves it. His management agency in Orlando were great too. Very prompt in solving any little problems we had. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and we wished we had booked 4 weeks! I would go back tomorrow if I could. Book it - You'll love it!

For the second straight year, a group of 7-8 golfers stayed at the house, and we greatly enjoyed it each year. What is particularly excellent is that there are 7 bedrooms, so almost everyone got their own room, and 5 of the rooms had their own bathroom. The lanai with pool and hot tub is another highlght of the place...it’s a great place to relax after a tough day of golfing and beer drinking! The house is in a nice, gated neighborhood and is centrally located to many of the places we wanted to go. I imagine this would be a great place for an extended family to stay as well as it is minutes from Disney.

Hi Jim. Thank you for your Review, many Golfers return Year after Year, as the Home and Central Florida is still the Perfect Place for both.......Alan.

When my brother and I decided we wanted to take our kids and grandkids 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 Manaagement 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!

“Perfect Disney family holiday home base”

Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014
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.

We spent two weeks at 'The Water's Edge in August and had a wonderful holiday with our family of 12. The property is more like home from home than a holiday home. The decor is lovely and well stocked with crockery etc. Beds are very comfortable and furnishings are lovely. The children loved the pool and spent many happy hours in it. Theme parks are fairly close so very convenient. It was everything we had hoped for and more and I would highly recommend.

“Highly recommended.”

Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in July 2017
I rarely leave feedback on anything but felt this was worth sharing. We just returned from 3 weeks at this villa and it was perfect. Having been to various villas near Disney, this is by far the nicest. Size is great, location is ideal for getting pretty much anywhere, 45 minutes from airport, pool lovely and deck size a bonus, private with good space between neighbours (which is important to me), lovely views over the back, 4 supermarkets in easy driving distance. I honestly did not want to leave and would certainly go again. The price is very competitive to comparable rentals in that area - excellent value given size and location. All dealings with Owner during booking process were easy and prompt responses always received. Highly recommended.

Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes.
