EMPERORS OASIS LUXURY POOL VILLA NEAR DISNEY SPA GAME ROOM

Formosa Gardens Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Den, Sleeps 8

Emperor's Oasis Villa is located in the prestigious Formosa Gardens Estates. Just two minutes from route 192W, this charming, gated and walled community is located only two miles from Disney's World Drive and a few minutes drive to a grocery store, pharmacy, medical clinic, restaurants and shops.

Located on a quiet cul de sac, our villa sits on a spacious 1/3 acre lot with manicured lawns. Enjoy relaxing and sunning yourself in our comfortable lounge chairs on the screened pool deck. For the dedicated sunbathers, we have an additional 300 square foot sundeck that receives unobstructed sun all day from all directions. There is nothing like a dip in our large pool or relaxing your tired muscles in the built-in spa (free pool/spa heat) after a long day at the parks. You'll enjoy the lanai with overhead fan and chairs to relax in plus a table for outdoor dining. Don't forget to fire up the gas grill for some delicious barbecue.

There are two master bedrooms with king size beds and attached bathrooms. The other two bedrooms each have two single beds and share a hall bathroom. All of the beds have new mattresses and luxurious high thread count sheets.

There are large screen TVs with DVD players in the family room and the game room. All the bedrooms have flat screen TVs and there is cable throughout the house. We also have wi-fi high speed Internet (bring your own lap top) and a phone with free local calling and free long distance to the U.S. and Canada.

The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can cook as much or as little as you wish. The laundry room is equipped with a washer and a dryer. This is so convenient, especially when traveling with children, because you can pack fewer clothes. There is an ironing board and iron available as well.

For the wee one in the family we have a high chair, a stroller, and a portable crib/cot.

Our completely finished, climate controlled game room features a 50” TV with Blu-Ray player, Wii console with games, foosball (table football/soccer) table, large air hockey table with lights and electronic scoring, video arcade with classic video games from the 70s and 80s, children’s play table and chairs, train table, books, toys, board games, DVD library and a couch with two recliners. Simba (the Lion King) as a cub and Mickey with his friends on safari will watch over you from murals on the wall.

For the comfort of all of our guests, this is a non-smoking home and pets are not allowed.

We live in Oregon after many years of living numerous places in the US and Europe, mostly Germany. One of us is from Maine and the other is an Oregonian. We have two wonderful children, a wonderful daughter-in-law and five delightful grandchildren who light up our lives.

Carolyn purchased this villa in 2009

Formosa Gardens Estates is the only community that we considered after viewing all of the nearby communities. It is beautiful and peaceful with space around the homes.

We fell in love with this house. It is spacious and comfortable. It sits on over a third of an acre which means we can enjoy our lawn and the lush Florida plants.

When we started looking for a villa to rent near Disney, Emperor's Oasis kept popping up in our searches. We had never rented before and were nervous about doing so. Carolyn put me at ease straight away with immediate responses to any queries and top tips for the parks. The reviews from others on the wesbite were great - everything went so smoothly that by the time we travelled I was wondering if it was all too good to be true!

WRONG!!! This is a magnificent home which is well cared for and in a beautiful location. It has EVERYTHING a family would need away from home. It is spotless and has plenty of linen and towels. We feel that the pool was a highlight for us - our six-year old wouln't put her face in water last year and was snorkelling on day 2 and tumbling and swimming under water by the end of the week! Our 9-month old also loved the water - the pool and surroundings were impeccable. We barbequed quite a lot, eating out at the patio table - plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 children.

I couldn't agree more with the rest of these reviews. This villa is exactly as described and pictured here. We also received our deposit back within days of leaving.

Don't go anywhere else. Carolyn - you get 6 stars from us!!
Owner's Response: Thank you, Deirdre. I am so glad that I could put you at ease. We want everyone who stays in our home to have a wonderful time. Between a private pool and Disney, how can you go wrong? Our grandson was like your 6 year old about the water when he was 5. After having the swimming pool for a week, he got used to the water and eventually decided to take swim lessons at home. We would love to have your wonderful family back again.

So, after having our tickets booked for 5 months to do our Disney vacation, they cancelled our flight out of Denver due to an impending storm. After many stressful hours we were able to get on a much later flight where we got into Orlando in the wee hours of the morning. What a relief it was to come to this home, so quiet, so clean and so lovely and with such comfy beds to fall into. My grandson wanted to jump into the pool at 2:30 am, so excited was he to have this right outside the door!

Anyway, the Emperors Oasis was everything we could have hoped for. Sometimes photos will make a place look very nice but when you get there it's shabby and uncared for. Not the case with this one. It was picture perfect. The home is located in a beautiful area (a gated community) which is very quiet and well maintained. The home itself was very well equipped with a great layout that provided privacy if you so desired or lots of room for the family to congregate. My 6 year old grandson had us all in the pool in the evenings, even though it was cool and even though we usually didn't get home from our activities till 8 or later at night. The hot tub was a blessing. The home is close to restaurants and shops (I walked a couple of times) and close to most of the parks.

Carolyn, the owner, is amazingly efficient at responding to emails (and I sent many) - I thought I must be her new best friend until I saw from other reviews that this is just her style. Her customer service is exemplary and we already received our deposit back (4 days after leaving).

I would say the lesson we learned with this trip is that we tried to cram a bit much into our time there. We did back-to-back parks most of the time. Disneyworld was especially crowded. But do stay for the fireworks one night - they are worth it. Two of the best days: Legoland was a big hit with the kids and it was a lot less crowded. And a day at Siesta Key beach (about a 2 hour drive away and on the Gulf side) which had the softest, whitest sand I've ever come across (supposed to be superior to Hawaiian beaches). The kids were thrilled to be at the beach! Park food is pretty awful but there is a restaurant at Universal Studios called Mythos that was really good. I had planned to cook in the home's great kitchen but we just got back too late in the evenings.

Bottom line, this home is fabulous. You won't be disappointed.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Sue. We have wonderful guests so we think they should be treated well. Sue let me know that their flight was cancelled so Ann, our property manager, went over to leave some lights on for them.

I am glad you shared some tips. Both Legoland and the beach are fun and more relaxing than Disney or Universal which are great fun but exhausting.

We stayed here for 10 days from Feb.20th-March 2nd. And coming from a very cold snowy Maine the 85 degree weather was wonderful.The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable,especially the beds.After long days at the parks it was so nice to have a good nights sleep.Our 2 grandchildren age 2 and 8 loved the game room and we all enjoyed the pool and spa.Before our trip Caroline answered all our questions and was very pleasant to deal with.We always rent homes now when we go on vacation and this home was one of the best.Very well taken care of and very clean.Thank you Jon and Caroline for sharing your home.We will certainly recommend it to our friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: Thank you Cindy and Steve. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We kept children in mind when we furnished our home because they need something to do when they are not at the parks. It is nice to know that your grandchildren enjoyed the game room.
We hope you will come back again!

Very quiet Neighborhood!

Emperor's Oasis was just perfect for our vacation! The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. The parks (Disney World) were very crowded during our visit, so coming back to a comfortable home and headed pool was just what we needed. The layout of the home is wonderful with split bedrooms, gave everyone their own perfect getaway within the house. The kitchen was very well equipped. We made at least one to two meals a day in it. I can not commend the owners enough for the extra safety consideration of children. We have 4 young children, and not once did we have to worry about them entering the pool area unsupervised. The pool area doors are equipped with very loud alarms and high (unreachable to children) safety latches. Carolyn, one of the owners, was fantastic! she answered all of my emails very timely, and was able to provide me with any information and tips I needed. Our deposit was returned very quickly, in fact before we made it home. We look forward to returning to Emperor's Oasis on our next Florida vacation.
Owner's Response: We are hoping that this lovely family will return! It was a pleasure getting to know them a little through our emails. The safety latches were one of our first additions when we bought our home, they just give a little extra comfort for us when we are there with our grandchildren and we were sure that others with small children would feel the same.

We stayed at this villa for ten nights from January 5th -15th 2013.
We hoped that the pictures on the website were a fair reflection of the villa, but we were absolutely blown away. It was perfect, and we couldn't have wished for a better base for our Disney holiday.
The villa was beautifully decorated, perfectly clean and exceptionally well equipped. The pool was fabulous and had been heated before our arrival. The games room was great and had loads of children's toys and games as well as the foosball and airhockey tables. The villa is literally a few minutes away from Disney and maybe ten minutes away from Universal and Seaworld. It's also just a minute or so away from loads of shops and restaurants and several supermarkets, although Formosa Gardens is beautifully peaceful.

Carolyn was wonderful to deal with - emails were always answered the same day. She also helped me arrange some extra things, like flowers to be delivered before we arrived (my mother's birthday). We were allowed a last-minute late checkout at no extra charge. Also, our security deposit was returned in full within two days of being home.

This is the first time that I have stayed at a privately owned villa in Orlando - I have previously always stayed at hotels. Never again! We are already trying to work out when we can come back and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Nia. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful guests! We want our home to help make a vacation in Kissimmee even more special.

Jon and I hope that you and your family will come back again. We always enjoy having familiar guests return.

We fell in love with Formosa Gardens when we stayed in a lovely villa here on our first trip to Florida with our children and grandchildren in June of 2009. We returned two months later and after looking at fifty houses in the immediate area chose this gem in Formosa Gardens. The homes are lovely and the lots are large.

Other Activities: Mini golf, shopping
