Formosa Gardens House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

WELCOME TO CHARACTERS CORNER!

Welcome to our Beautiful Disney Vacation Home, located in the elegant gated community known as Formosa Gardens Estates. Our home is located only two and 1/2 miles from the main entrance to all of the Disney Parks! We are the original owners of this home having built it in 2002 and we make every effort to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We have gone to great lengths to take what is the existing luxury standard for vacation homes a step further. We are constantly in the process of updating and re-furnishing our home to keep things nice and new. Cleanliness is our FIRST priority. We understand that there is a lot of variation in standards with vacation homes and it is our goal to make sure you are happy with our home. We take a lot of pride in making sure your stay is magical! We are very fortunate to have a property manager who lives IN the neighborhood and who will be available in the event that you need any type of assistance or have any issues during your stay. Our property manager only manages a small number of homes and it is for this reason that she is able to take such good care of our home. We have been told by many guests (on several occasions) that our home is the cleanest that they have ever rented. :)

Our home offers the following features and amenities: A huge in-ground pool for you and your guests to enjoy, surrounded by a hot tub/spa and a Mickey Mouse kiddie pool which both have waterfalls into the large in-ground pool. The Mickey Mouse pool is 18 inches deep in the center and six inches deep in Mickey's ears. Our pool's deck/lounging area is extra large in order to accommodate a large group of people comfortably. This is sooo important! We find that most people spend most of their time at the pool! (Us included!) The pool area also contains a very nice outdoor dining area. Make special note of the size of our pool and deck as you will likely spend a lot of time there!

Our home is 3,100 square foot, (this does not include the game room!) It has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and is located on a very large and private lot. Three of the bedrooms are master suites (two kind and one queen), all with en-suite bathrooms (one with a Jacuzzi tub). There are additionally two twin bedrooms containing two twin beds in each of these themed rooms..one of themed rooms is our POOH room and the other is MICKEY AND MINNIE... and finally the newest bedroom added in April of 2011 is ROYALTY themed and this bedroom has a full sized bed. The Princess/Royalty bedroom can be accessed through the main master bedroom french doors or the french doors can be locked and there is a separate/private entrance to this room from the living room.

All of our furnishings are top of the line designer, name brand furnishings from companies such as Broyhill, Lexington, Hooker, and of course, the Disney Store! All of our bedrooms will offer a TV/DVD combination. The family room (which includes a leather sectional sleeper queen sofa ) will include a home theater surround sound system. An assortment of family-oriented DVDs will be provided. The bonus room/master suite (the only upstairs room) offers a king-size bed, along with an extra pull out sofa in the same room.

Our gourmet kitchen, with island and attached eat-in kitchen table area offers all of the comforts of home, and more!! There is a separate formal dining room area, along with a formal living room. Finally, the entire home is equipped with WIFI WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS. Our garage features a fantastic game room with air Hockey, a pool Table and foosball, and of course, there is a washer and dryer located on the first floor for your convenience.

Finally, we invite you inquire about a stay in our home. We are convinced that you will be so happy that you will want to return again and again. We have many guests who come back year after year!

About Heidi LaDuca

My husband, Tony, and I are both attorneys practicing in the Rochester, New York area. We have four children, ages 19, 17, 15, and 7! We have been traveling to Disney for many years and have lots of great suggestions for your trip. I am available to answer any questions you have and would love to rent our home to your family!

Heidi LaDuca purchased this house in 2002

Why Heidi LaDuca chose Formosa Gardens

We simply love Disney and the Orlando area in general! There is simply so much to do together as a family! I (Heidi) am a HUGE Disney fan... I love the parks, the water parks, the restaurants, the shopping.. I love that Disney magic. We also enjoy Universal/Sea World/Busch Gardens and going to our favorite beach, Clearwater Beach!

What makes this house unique

Our home is located only 2 and 1/2 miles from Disney's main gate, 15-20 minutes from Universal/Sea World/Aquatica, and an hour from Busch Gardens! We've done it all and we love it. After a busy day at the park, the kids love to hang out in their themed bedrooms, play in our game room, but most of all, swim, swim, swim! We designed our pool area with a very, very large deck area so there is room for everyone... and then some. I don't think you'll find a pool area like ours anywhere! Check out the photos of our Mickey Mouse kiddie pool... a hit for the little ones!

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Disney World many times and stayed in a variety of lodging. This year we traveled with our daughters and families (group of 11) and found this to be the best of any property we have rented in the area. The home was perfect for a group ages 4 to 65 with plenty of room to relax. The decor was lovely with the perfect amount of Mickey Mouse detail, the pool and patio were spacious, and the house had everything we needed to make our stay relaxing. The kids loved their themed bedrooms, the adults like the privacy provided, and we all loved the pool and hot tub. The short drive to Disney meant we had more time in the parks and less time in lines. Heidi was most helpful and responded quickly to our requests. All 11 of us enjoyed staying here and highly recommend it for a family vacation.

Spectacular!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our Florida Family vacation and must say thank you! Your house was absolutely beautiful, even better than the pictures. From the moment we walked into the beautiful foyer, all anyone could say was WOW! We had 2 families with us for a total of 10 people, yet the house was so large and well laid out, we never felt the like we were on top of each other! It was extremely convenient to get to all the Disney Parks, enough so that we took an afternoon break and returned.

My wife and I especially enjoyed the hot tub in the early am with a cup of coffee, I think that was the best time for complete relaxation. A dip in the pool every evening after returning from the parks was extremely refreshing, and it was very pleasant not being attacked by bugs at night while we were out there, (wish we could screen in our pool up north)!! Again Thanks so much.

Just like home... only better!

  • 5 of 5
This home made our vacation perfect! It was very clean and well stocked with dishes, beach towels, movies and games. Each of the "adult" bedrooms were spread out so we all had our privacy. The kids rooms were decorated perfectly and the house was well equipped with gear for our toddler. It was also in the best neighborhood the Orlando area which made us feel very safe.

We had our trip booked full with theme parks, beach, etc. but we enjoyed the house so much that we found ourselves spending more time there than we did with everything else.
The owner was great to work with and the property managers were also very friendly.

A quick tip for those who may be obsessive about things (like I am)! One thing I would recommend is sending a quick email to the owner when you arrive reporting anything that may be broken or damaged. The property is in excellent condition, but when we arrived we noticed a broken pool stick, normal wear and tear on the blinds, and a few scuffs on the wall. None of this impacted our stay or comfort in any way but it made me feel nervous when we checked out for not letting her know about it upon arrival. It was obvious they work hard to keep the house in great condition so we wanted to make sure they knew we did the same while we were there!

Would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone and we will definitely be staying there again in the future!

WOW

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a 10 day stay at this beautiful vacation home. There were 12 of us (8 adults and 4 kids) The location was perfect for parks, shopping and resturants. The kids really enjoyed the wonderful pool and spent every second they could in there. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kitchen was very well stocked with any cooking items needed. I would highly recommend this vacation home to everyone and have already told many friends that are thinking about going to Orlando about this rental.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this beautiful home maximized our first Disney experience with our young kids. Having this magical home away from home allowed us to relax and recharge between activities. My children are still talking excitedly about the Mickey Mouse pool as much as the Tiki birds at Magic Kingdom. Everything was decorated so beautifully and had the magic touch of Disney sprinkled throughout and highlighted in the kids rooms. It was a delight to see all the kids reactions as they explored:) The layout of the house, pool, and patio area was perfect. This house was designed for togetherness. We loved having the space to have Grandparents, cousins, Aunts and Uncles able to be in the same house but never feel crowded. The split floor plan was great for quiet nap times while others were playing cards or pool. Even the pool brought everyone together while allowing each person to have their own space with the kiddie pool and hot tub linked to the main pool. Every detail was considered in order to make the home a magical part of the Florida experience for us, we even enjoyed Mickey Mouse pancakes with the custom griddle:) Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to stay at your beautiful home, we will cherish the memories and hundreds of pool pictures for years to come!

Our large entourage of 16 spent a week in this beautiful home during a Junior National swim meet in Orlando. The house is arranged so we all had private areas and rooms are situated across the home and one large master upstairs so we really did have our own space. March Madness was going on and we enjoyed the TV room open to the kitchen for snacks to be served. Kids also enjoyed the video games and movies the homeowners provided. Beautiful pool ,hot tub and back yard is lined with landscaping for privacy! The only problem....Our week flew by way to fast! Thanks Again Heidi, we had an awesome time!!
