This is a large spacious house, all open plan, with high ceilings, giving you a really sense of space. We were 2 families sharing and there was plenty of space for all of us. There are 2 large master bedrooms with enormous beds! There is a massive flat screen TV in the living room with lots of good channels, as well as 'on demand' programmes to choose from. Outside, the pool area has a lovely feel to it, it is nicely screened and has lots of lush vegetation, a real sense of the tropics ! There were lots of quality loungers and chairs around the pool too, we were all able to sit outside around the large table together. The house was spotless when we arrived, we did pay a supplement for a mid stay clean / laundry service, which we thought was very reasonable ( for the size of the house!) The location of Formosa is fantastic, there are many many restaurants just minutes away, and Disney is just a short 10 minute drive from the house.

It is a great place in an incredibly beautiful neighborhood. The staff is great, they were very helpful with everything. Definitely coming back for my next trip to Orlando.

What a spacious, comfortable retreat. Great for a large family gathering. Wonderful heated pool with plenty of outdoor furniture to enjoy the outdoors. Game room was well equipped and spacious as well. Close proximity to Disney theme parks and other entertainment.

We stayed here for a family wedding/vacation. The youngest person was 16, the oldest was 88, and everyone had a blast! We are a large family and live all over the country. We met up for this event and it was wonderful having such a lovely, large, and private place to stay. Other family members were able to rent another home in Formosa Gardens, which worked out well. The house was spotless, close to Disney, and near restaurants and shopping. I would never stay in this area any other way! The house and pool were as lovely as the pictures on this website. I love looking at the pictures after having had such a nice time there. We will go back!

I am giving this property a 4 only because there wasn't a 4 1/2 option... We enjoyed our stay. The house was great and truly close to the parks. We highly recommend you stay here as you will have everything you need. Plus the home is gorgeous. The only reason I took off 1/2 a point is due to misunderstanding of the jacuzzi and poo heat. It was not clear that we had to pay to heat the jacuzzi hot tub. I understand the pool which we opted out of since its summer. We never imagined we needed to pay to heat a hot tub and it was not clear to us however I will say that both the owner and management were very responsive. All and all we worked something out with Ann even though there was a cost for hot tub heat. Otherwise our trip was magical and we would stay here again!!

We had a wonderful time at this home the week of June 8 thru June 15. Our children said, "can we just go back to the house and swim?" more than once while at Disney! It was spacious with plenty of gathering space and private space to accommodate our three families. The pool was perfect for our children ages 4 thru 9 who are newer swimmers - the combination of shallow and deep areas gave them a chance to "swim" while still having play areas in shallower water. They enjoyed the game room, too. We cooked most meals at home and greatly enjoyed the lanai and hot tub after busy days at Disney. Location is great. We recommend Giordano's for pizza if you stay!

We stayed at this house with my two kids (4 1/2 and 14 months) and my parents and everyone had a great time. The house is very large so everyone had plenty of room. It was close to the parks and the kids enjoyed the pool on our off day. The house was clean and just as described in the posting. I will definitely look to stay here again on my next trip.

We had a wonderful stay here with our extended family. The kids enjoyed their rooms and the pool and we enjoyed the wonderful layout of the house and that both our families we able to have king suites without the guilt of who got the bigger room, as they were both so great! The kids also loved the games in the garage and this home truly felt like our home away from home. The owners and management were amazing and we would reccommend this place in a heartbeat. Location was great as well, with all amentities you could think of right outside this beautiful gated community. Our only regret was that we were so busy everyday, that we didnt get to enjoy the house to its full extent. We look forward to staying here again when we are in Florida. Thanks Ann, you were a pleasure, as was your beautiful home.

This was the first time we have rented a villa and it has been truly amazing experience. Villa is maintained to a very high standard with everything you require and more!! The pool area is beautiful and very relaxing, we had pool heat and would definitely recommend for this time of year as my girls used pool at all times. Owner was extremely helpful and would stay at this property again and would also recommend this property.

This was my family's 8th visit to Florida but the 1st time at this property. Usually we are rushing around trying to fit in as much as we can. However, on this visit, and staying at this home we were more than happy to stay at home and hang out my the pool! It was truely like a home from home! The bedrooms are well furnished with everything you could need. Bathrooms are fitted to the highest standard and the kitchen has everything you need to cook for the family! It was so clean! Plenty of fluffy towels for all of the family and pool towels too! The pool area is spacious with beautiful palms and plants which provides a shady area should you wish to escape the hot Florida sun! The Disney and Universal Parks are really just a stone's throw away from the home. Its actually a joy to drive the short way down highway 192, it gives you time to take in your surroundings and chat about what you will do that day! If you want eat out in the evening but don't want to travel too far there are a number of restaurants very close by, such as The Outback, Cracker Barrel, Sweet Tomatoes and The Olive garden to name just a few and if you don't want to go out to dinner they do take out! The owner was very helpful. The questions I had before we travelled were answered within just a few hours. They were also very helpful with suggestions on where to go what to do whilst we were in Florida. As I have already said, this is our 8th visit to Florida but this house really made our holiday complete, we will definitely be visiting again, hopefully sooner rather than later!

So happy I selected this house for our vacation!
I have no complaints about this house. The location was great -- we came back during mid day when it was so hot and the kids rested, then returned later in the evenings to the park. The house was very clean. There were plenty of towels, sheets etc. Lots of "extras" like stroller if needed, cribs, breakfast food for your first morning, computer, wi-fi, video games. The owner was so helpful with any questions I had prior to our trip. I would rent this home again and I recommend it to any one with a large family that needs plenty of room. We also felt very safe in the gated community.

This is the 6th time we have rented a house in Florida, the 5th in Orlando proper and this house surpassed any of our expectations. What can we start with? Everything has been thought of to make your stay comfortable. Video game systems for the kids in case of rain, a fabulous pool and beautifully landscaped pool area for the sunny days, close to attractions for those who come to see Mickey or the Dolphins. The house was clean upon our arrival and an awesome welcome package awaited us with food and drink to get us started which is something no other house has provided. Our family can't thank you enough for everything, especially how easy you made the whole experience from start to finish to rent this home away from home. We will definitely be back!

What a delightful vacation we enjoyed in this beautiful home... Close to everything... The appointments and home were lovely. The pool completely private and refreshing..., the "extras" furnished like bikes were especially ejoyable I took rides in the early daylight which affored me the pleasure of seeing the Hot Air balloons in the Eastern Sky... what a sight. The security of the gated community was a plus. Would recommend the experience for anyone whether daily trips to the theme parks or just a "staycation" by the pool... A. & S. PS. Disappointed that there was not a characol grill as the add suggested but the managment company is trying to remedy that.

Only thing that would have made it better would have been more time!
The house was great! For accomodating for families and people of all ages. There is something for everyone! Very spacious, relaxing and we enjoyed every minute of it! Would definitely look into staying at this property again in the future!

"Villa location is just minuets from the parks and some fabulous restaurants, we have stayed hear twice in the last two years and have enjoyed every second of our stay. The bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable, just what you need after a long day at the parks, The family room is very relaxing you have the latest TV and game consoles including Xbox kenect. The pool area was also a big hit, it was like an oasis and very relaxing. All in All there is nothing bad i can say. it was ” GREAT”

“Thank you for providing us with the perfect base for our Orlando holiday, we couldn't believe how close to Disney we were, it was perfect after a long day not to be stuck in the car for long. ”
