GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

This really has to be the very best location in the Disney area.

Formosa Gardens is on Disney's doorstep and only a few minutes from a great range of handy Supermarkets and Restaurants.

The property was lovely, exactly as described, infact the photos did not do it justice, it was huge and extremely private, with beautiful views over the lake.

There were a lot of us of all ages, yet there was lots of space for everyone.

The kids loved the large pool and slide. The movie room was amazing.

We had a minor problem with the TV channels but Craig from the management sorted it out the same day.

I have to thank Mike & Susie for their service and would thoroughly recommend this property to all future guests.

Lucy.

One of the Best

  • 5 of 5

This was to be the Holiday of a lifetime - Well it truly was, we had an amazing time, Disney, Universal, Sea World etc, all within a short drive. The Villa was just the icing on the cake, absolutely fabulous. It was enormous, with beautiful furnishings and every extra you would expect in your own home. We all had our separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The kids just loved the movie room and pool area.

We hope to return soon and will definitely choose this Villa. The next time we will spend more time enjoying it and less time travelling.

Thank you, to the owners and management for the cleanliness and presentation.

Who Needs Disney!

  • 5 of 5

Who needs Disney, when you can stay in a house like this.This is without doubt the most fabulous villa we have ever stayed in. Not only does it look amazing as you arrive, the interior is nothing less than 'to die for'. It is absolutely huge and so beautifully furnished, the photos do not do it justice as it is much larger in reality. My four teenage children were either immersed in the Movie room, or spending hours and hours in the pool, there was so much space for the adults, with no less than four lounges, we often lost each other inside. Thank you so much to Mike for letting us stay in your wonderful dream home.

Already planning our return.

MOST AMAZING HOME

  • 5 of 5

My family have travelled to Florida for many years and stayed in some lovely properties, but we did not realise there were villas as large as this one.On arrival we were gobsmacked!!! it really is amazing, huge luxurious bedrooms and lounges.

Then the pool. WOW What a view. We had a big family Reunion and I have to say this was the ideal location, the whole family loved it, from our 4 year old to my Aunt of 82 years. Superb location - we will definitely be back. The owners Mike and Susie were so helpful, even offering a concierge service through their local Management Company, they arranged things we did not dream were possible. Great experience not to me missed.
