The Water's Edge
About the home
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 Plasma T.V. screen with Bose Home Theatre surround sound, better than a cinema, whilst chilling-out under our unique amazing Chinese cooling 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 Denon 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.

The Florida / Orlando Disney Area region
most people when they ask about Disney and Florida, think its in orlando, but that is a big city 30 miles north of the theme parks. The Central Disney Area, is the area closest to Disney, and the closest Town is called Kissimmee, our Home in Formosa Gardens is just 10 minutes from Disney Main Gate, and 15 Minutes to all the other Attractions.
The Kissimmee / Formosa Gardens area
There are many shops not more than half a mile away in Formosa Boulevard, and over 15 restaurants to chose from, plus a supermarket, and drug store's and Disney is about 2 miles away, from our home. What's Formosa like? Well when you drive into Formosa Gardens, you will answer that question yourself, it is just so different from anything around in the Disney area, and the homes are so big and in there own grounds, it will make you smile..
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
If you are driving, you generally come in from the north on the Interstate 4 towards Tampa, at exit 64b towards Disney World, onto the R192 west, You need to get to Turn off the R192 (the Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway) at marker 4 into Formosa Gardens Boulevard also signposted as Splendid China. (Splendid China has been sold, so I am not sure that the signs are still there.) You will pass Splendid China on your right, approximately half a mile you will come to a 4 way 'Stop' crossroads, proceed for approximately 100 yards and Formosa Gardens Estate is situated on your left.

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!!!!
Thank you for your review, it certainly is worth being a Villa Owner when we have such lovely Guests staying with us.

We've just returned from this wonderful villa holiday. Absolutely fabulous place and so close to Disney. Everyone was bowled over from the moment we walked through the door - luxurious without being too starchy and off putting. Child friendly and the owners could not not have been more accommodating. Looking forward to going again and next time spending more time at the villa!
