Rolling Hills is one of the closest residential communities to Walt Disney World's four theme parks, which makes it a much sought after location for your Florida holiday.

A brand new BBQ grill is equipped for you to show off your cooking skill. The pool area is guarded by a screen enclosure for protection on the house. The pool deck is provided with a removable safety fence for extra added protection for young infants should you need it. All doors leading on to the deck area have been provided with additional safety locks and switch-able alarms.

There are three master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is equipped with a queen bed. Both kid rooms are equipped with 2 twin beds, which are great for kids’ staying.

About Jane

Hi, I am Jane and I own and manage this wonderful villa at Kissimmee, Florida. I have three boys age from 2 to 8. All of them love this house and enjoy their vacation here. We recently upgraded the floor and the game room in the house. We are looking for more plans to decorate this house into a dream vacation house for our guests.

Jane purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jane chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

Location! Location! Location! The house is very close to Disney Theme Parks and the Hwy 192, the center business area of Kissimmee.

What makes this villa unique

This house is located at one of the biggest lots, which provides an absoutely private distance away from neighbor's house. Enjoy an easy and fast access to major hight ways and main attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome. Thank you for everything. We are absolutely satisfied in your home and I will be sure to say so. We will definitely be using you again.

Great Orlando Property

BETTER THAN A HOTEL!!!

  • 4 of 5
My first experience with Homeaway and I can say it was great. The rental was wonderful. The house fit the family very nice. Enough beds/baths, and towels for everyone. So much better than a hotel - There was a issue with the pool. We appreciate your immediate response with the pool - the kids absolutely love it and swam in it everyday. They enjoyed the pool so much more when it was warmer :) Thanks. We loved the view to the lake and enjoyed feeding the birds.

Location is very close to all Disney parks which was one of the factors that helped us decide on this house.

Will use HomeAway for future rentals - Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for honest comment. I am pleased that you enjoyed your time in my house. That is my number one goal to help my guests spend less and enjoy more. I hear a lot of good comments from my guests but you are among several groups willing to tell your true feeling and suggestion, which greatly encourages my small business and helps improving our service. Nothing is more important than guests’ satisfaction. Thanks for selecting my house and trusting me through the platform of Homeaway. I believe we are able to serve our guests better through our diligent work. Look forward to your future visit.

Great!

Loved the house and location very close to Disney which was important to us. Pool heat was way to hot but that is the only problem we had. I would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your constructive comment. I am so pleased to know you had a good time in my house. Thanks for being so considerate. I am so happy that all good practices of my rental have been realized through your stay. I would like to share a few thoughts since you are so nice for giving encouraging evaluation. In fact both your group and my management did excellent job. Thanks.
I believe a clear check-in document is useful for guests to know in advance about rental detail including what will be provided and what won’t. It is a good practice to avoid any misinterpretation that local management or owner would provide all supply to guests. All policies for trash disposal, towel handling, vehicle parking and HOA rules can be listed on the check-in document. These policies will be enforced to generate a good cycle among guests, local management and the cleaning team.
I believe we can do better for all amenities in the house. A premier cable TV, internet and phone bundle service is provided. Guests might need to re-adjust or re-scan cable TV channels for maximal effect. It will be greatly helpful by adding a list of TV channel line-up before guests check in. The kitchen is fully functional with adequate cookware, utensils and new appliances serving a big group of >10 people. Due to regular attrition, we need to continue upgrading the kitchen facility. Pool heater and AC unit are new and still under warranty but regular tune-up and maintenance are necessary to keep both functioning well. We will keep the game room well maintained.
I believe we can be more considerate toward big groups with little ones. We continue to provide crib, futon and extra mattress for this purpose. Most big groups appreciate our effort to accommodate them within their limited budget. We need to maintain all these extra facilities clean and safe.
Thanks for your encouragement and suggestion. It’s my honor to host your group. Hope you will come back in the future.

Not pleased, more cons than pros

  • 2 of 5
I must start with the pros and the things I did like. First, the LOCATION could not be beat. Literally minutes from every DISNEY park and easy to navigate around Orlando. Not too far of a drive to the Premium Outlets or Universal Studios since right off the highway. Lots of space.
Okay... CONS rule ultimately in my experience. The house did not feel like a home AT ALL which has been my experience with Homeaway in the past. Very stark, missed all the essentials-- no usable cookware, all pans were VERY cheap to start and those were burned minimal toilet paper and none available to replace, old broken iron and ironing board, towels spelled like mildew, most lights were non working or missing functioning bulbs rather, dirty in lots of places including hair in shower drains. Had to drag out 4 trash cans of trash for the prior tenants but owner didn't even supply replacement bags! Mattress and box spring laying up against window, large baby bed and futon blocking hallway. Looked VERY tacky and was a huge hinderance. May have been nice for a packed house of people but WE picked a house that the bedrooms and reported beds fit our family so the extra was clutter and tacky. Had TV issues... Yes in every room but those only got ONE channel- Nickelodeon. Only TV with channels was family room. Pool heat, which we paid extra for, worked only on day one and not again until the day before we checked out. Asked to "clean" towels for the next residents but NO detergent. I couldn't imagine doing that to another person so we bought some but I can imagine other people may not be as thoughtful. Putting in a washer doesn't equal clean!! That's probably why they ALL smelled so bad when we got there. Game room was a joke. Old broken games, barely ample light which showed more like a creepy horror movie florescent flickering light. Paint chipping all over house inside and out, broken blinds. Cheap everything.

Overall NOT HAPPY!!! Will go back to Disney World but NEVER use this properly or suggest to anyone!!! I will continue to use HOMEAWAY as all my other experiences have been GREAT with them.... This one was a big failure :(

Owner's Response: Thanks for giving credit on the location and size of the house: it can’t be beat for sure!
First of all, I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Guests are most important part for my rental business so comment will be greatly helpful. I strive hard to control cost for a large group of guests looking for an affordable, clean and multi-functional house. While it might not be ideal for guests with double or triple budget looking for a superior resort under unreasonably high expectation, the house provides all amenities as a standard vacation rental that serves most guests.
I would like to clarify one key point. Short term rental causes regular tear and wear, which was highly amplified and exaggerated in the review along with neglecting many upgrades. We have done so many upgrades in the house such as new floors, TVs, furniture and appliances et al. We will keep doing so to build it as a comfortable and clean vacation home.
Finally my number one goal is to help guests spend less and enjoy more. For any deficiency really existing, I will work hard with my management to correct it at once. We are not perfect with our service but we are doing our best. I sincerely welcome all constructive suggestion and comment :).

Comfortable and near to the parks.

  • 5 of 5
I recommend this house because it's very close to the parks, the location is excellent, you can find anything in the neighborhood, 24 hours. We are twelve in my party and it was good enough for all of us. If you come with babies and kids, it's the house is great because it has stroller, crib and high chair. I really come back again.
