Oak Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, sleeps 8 adults and 2 infants. Pool, high speed Wifi.

Villa Dorada is a luxury air conditioned four bedroom vacation home just 3 miles from Disneyworld, and only 15 minutes from Seaworld and Universal. Villa Dorada is on the small Oak Island Harbor development, which is a subdivision of Formosa Gardens. This home is as good as it gets and is fantastic value!

After an exciting day at Disney, it's great to have to drive just a few minutes back to your luxury home and relax. Chill out by the pool, take a soak in the hot tub or shoot pool in the air conditioned games room!

Ultra high speed wireless internet covers the entire house at no extra charge.

Villa Dorada extends over nearly 2,400 sq ft with a massive 400 sq ft luxury master suite on the first floor, overlooking the pool deck, with walk in closet, 50 inch TV and huge en suite bathroom.

There are top quality mattresses and bedding in all of the bedrooms, and TVs in each bedroom with a 55 inch flat screen TV and an Xbox 360 in the main living area.

For those who prefer to eat inside there is a formal dining table which seats eight and another table in the breakfast nook also seats four. There are also stools if you prefer to sit up at the breakfast bar.

Another option is to eat outside where there is a dining table and chairs, alongside the hot tub.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all you could possible require.

We offer free phone calls to the US and Canada.

There is a large enclosed private pool which can be heated if you wish.

Villa Dorada has everything you could possibly need for a great family vacation.

The unique benefits of this Villa: This luxurious four bedroom and three bathroom vacation rental home offers spacious accommodation for up to 10 people. It is located in the popular Kissimmee area, an ideal location for Disney, and is just moments away from Golf, Fishing, Shops and Restaurants.

Enjoy Your Stay: The living area in this villa is mainly tiled. Two family rooms have large comfortable sofas, and a wall mounted 55 inch TV for you to enjoy. The downstairs Queen bedrooms has its own bathroom. Two first floor twin bedrooms share a bathroom. Plenty of towels are provided for your use.

The games room is well equipped with a high quality slate bed pool tables, football, exercise bike and weights.

Enjoy the Pool: The west facing pool is accessed via the family room.

A covered lanai with table ,chairs is perfect for al fresco dining or for those who prefer to sit in the shade. The large pool is ideal for a swim or you can sunbathe on the pool deck where there are plenty of chairs and loungers. Pool heat is available on request.

For Golfers: Indian Creek is in Osceola County which has many courses, the nearest to Indian Creek being Mystic Dunes which is literally two minutes by car or just a ten minute stroll away. This 18 hole championship course offers an unprecedented golf experience, a dunes-style western nine similar to a British links course and an eastern nine of low American classic wandering through wetlands and oak forests. This course was rated 4 star and ranked number 2 in 'Orlando's Top 5 Golf Courses'.

A ten minute drive takes you to Champions Gate International and National 18 hole courses both designed by Greg Norman. The International provides a British links-style experience and the national is traditional American style. It's next to here you will also find the David Leadbetter Golf Academy.

A fifteen minute drive and you could be in the Celebration Golf Club rated 4.5 stars and in the top 3 in central Florida for service and in the top two for course conditions in Golf Digests 'Best Places to Play'.

Possibly the Kissimmee Golf Club, a fifteen minute drive away , offers the best value for money for the not so serious golfer. This course has long been a favorite of locals and visitors alike.

So if this particular home is not what you are looking for do e mail us as we may have other options for you to consider.

We do all we can to respond to inquiries as quickly as we can and a prompt service extends until and during your vacation.

Stephen Ward purchased this house in 2014

Why Stephen Ward chose Oak Island

Villa Dorada is so close to Disney you can hear the fireworks! This home is immaculate with a master bedroom suite that will take your breath away.

What makes this house unique

Villa Dorada was fully refurbished in 2011/2. There are two lounge areas with leather sofas. We have made sure that the home is fully equipped right down to the detail of a baby monitor and wine aerator !

The key benefit though is how quick it is to get to Disney, just three miles away!

We are a Canadian family of six, this was our first time renting a vacation villa in Florida, and we were somewhat apprehensive about what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised and relieved the moment we walked through the door. The home was clean, bright and spacious. The security and ease of entry was perfect. The table was set and everything was spotless. This was definitely a home away from home for my entire family. It's a beautiful home in a quiet community - perfectly located to enjoy everything that the Orlando area has to offer. The pool and hot tub were ideal for relaxing and enjoying the Florida sun. The home is stocked with adequate linens and kitchen goods for us. Being able to prepare most meals at home gave us the flexibility we were looking for. The kids enjoyed the game room and the pool during the time we spent at the house. There were a couple of minor issues which were dealt with by the management company in a very speedy fashion.

Beautiful spacious home in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5
The pictures on the site don't do this house justice. It is beautiful, nicely decorated and very spacious. It is super clean and has a sparkling pool with nice privacy in the back. The owner, Stephen, was an absolute pleasure to work with. He couldn't have been nicer, more accommodating or more patient. I gave a rating of 4 stars instead 5 because of 2 issues I experienced in which the hot tub was not clean, which Stephen had the management company address immediately, and the temperature in the house being a little uncomfortable through most of the week. The last night was particularly hot, which come to find out my son caused by partially opening one of the windows and not closing it properly apparently. I contacted Stephen at 3:00am EST and he addressed the issue immediately. Stephen is a fantastic host and I would highly recommend renting this house or one of his others. I made a suggestion to him to have ceiling fans installed in all the rooms to make the air flow better and temperature more comfortable. He was more than wiling to listen to my suggestion and I hopeful that he will do so as I would love to rent this house again. Lastly, my security deposit was returned very quickly with no issues as well. Stephen, despite the 2 issues we had, we had a wonderful stay. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This is the first review for this property as the owners only purchased the property 2 weeks ago and our family had the privilege to be the first to spend our vacation there. We have already stayed at 4 of Stephen's villas and were on his waiting list as there was no availability at any of his 6 other villas for our dates. We were therefore delighted when were offered this new one. I could write so much and run out of adjectives to describe this property, but in my personal opinion this is what renting a villa is all about. It is simply "awesome". From enquiring, to reserving, to paying, to arriving at the villa everything was straightforward. Stephen is always online to answer any questions. Your fun-filled vacation starts the minute you arrive. The house is light and bright, airy and extremely spacious with 2 lounges and a 20ft x 15ft master bedroom. All of the furniture is good quality and the soft furnishings are coordinated to give it a "zingy, citrusy" feel. Everything is immaculate and full marks must go to the management company for their high standards and level of cleanliness. The kitchen is very well equipped for those wanting to dine at home, and for those wanting to dine al fresco the enclosed private pool deck with table and chairs and sun loungers plus lots of kiddies pool toys suit all families. The crystal clear pool and hot tub is a haven of tranquility after busy days at the parks when you just want to chill out. This villa is only 3 miles from Disney and with so many local restaurants and shops malls on the way you will never be stuck. For golf enthusiasts there are plenty of courses to choose from. The villa has flat screen TVs in all bedrooms and also a Wii, Xbox, DVD and IPad docking station. TheTVs in the lounge and master bedroom are 55ins. The Games room has a 8ft pool table, Fussball, exercise bike and weights. For guests travelling with little ones there is a pack and play, high hair and buggy. What more could you want from a vacation? I can't recommend this villa enough, so I leave it up to you to look at the photos and don't delay in booking. This villa is new on the site, but without a doubt it will be booked up very quickly. Our only disappointment was that our holiday had to end!

Just a few minutes away is the Formosa Gardens Shopping Village which has a large supermarket, gift shops and a good selection of restaurants including TGI Fridays, Outback Steak House and Red Lobster, together with Chinese and Italian restaurants.

Nearby Rolling Oaks Common is home to a SuperTarget supermarket, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Panera Bread, Sweet Tomatoes, Logans, Texas Roadhouse, Joes Crab Shack, Bonefish Grill, Orlando Ale House and Applebees..

There is a nearby Publix Supermarket and a Super Wal-Mart is a few minutes away.

Easy access to Disneyworld, Universal, Islands of Adventure and Seaworld are complemented by the relative proximity to Busch Gardens ( about an hour) and Kennedy space Center, also just an hour away.

Nearer to home you can visit a small zoo on the nearby Ponciana Boulevard just 20 minutes from Villa Dorada.

Just over an hour will get you to Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast and not much more than that will get you to the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico coast.

The Kissimmee area has a large number of lakes and is world renowned for its largemouth bass fishing. Kissimmee is home to the upper Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, which is comprised of East Lake Tohopekaliga, West Lake Toho, Cypress Lake, Lake Hatchineha, and the largest lake in the chain, Lake Kissimmee. These lakes have approximately 80,000 acres of fishable waters and contain some of the largest bass found in the world.

For most however Villa Dorada is the ideal location for a vacation because of its location so near to Disneyworld.

Just a five minute drive leads you to the entry to Disneyworld.

The attractions of the Magic Kingdom are known globally.

Before you know it you are walking down main street and deciding whether to head off towards frontierland (big thunder mountain and splash mountain), or tomorrowland for a quick whirl around space mountain.

If you have younger children (or like us a daughter who suddenly becomes a 'young child' on arrival at the magic kingdom) then no doubt the first port of call will be fantasyland and a sedate boat trip on its a small world.

Hollywood studios is the easiest park for you to get to being just two minutes from leaving highway 192. Head off to aerosmith and pick up a fast pass for tower of terror. Decide who wants to audition for the the american idol show!

Epcot is recommended for you to make two or three visits to appreciate all it has to offer. Soarin´ in the land pavillion is worth the inevitable long queue. Then its the leisurely boat ride through the greenhouses where you can see strawberries growing downwards!

As in the rest of Disneyworld if you have your iphone or blackberry with you free wifi will enable you to catch up with your e mails whilst in the line. Not a good idea however whilst riding test track or mission space!

The mile and a half walk around the epcot world showcases will take at least half a day. Enjoy fish and chips in the United Kingdom showcase and wander around the twinings tea garden.

The 360 degree cinema shows in the Canadian and French showcases are fantastic. Watch out for the shows that may be on at the theater in front of the america showcase, they are truly amazing and not to be missed.

If you fancy some haute cuisine then head off to France, well the showcase anyway. Taste the best of french wines en route.

Animal kingdom is a wonderful place. Watch out for the yeti on everest and don´t miss the lion king show. Cool down on the congo rapids and wander around 'Africa'.

Seaworld is a more leisurely day out or you might just go for a few hours in the evening. The Shamu show is incredible. If you want something exciting ride kraken and cool off on atlantis.

Universal Studios again needs a few visits for you to enjoy all it has to offer. See how your score rates on men in black and consider auditioning for fear factor. The horror make up show is something you will not want to miss!

If you are into Harry Potter then you will love Islands of Adventure. Even if you are not then the hulk and spiderman will have you well entertained. Get soaked on the bilge barges and get more soaked on dudleys ripsaw falls!

If you have any interest at all in science then a trip to Kennedy Space center is a must. Space shuttle Atlantis forms the centrepiece of a new display area and the shuttle experience is a realistic simulation of what it was like at launch.

There is a choice of bus tours including one which takes you just a few feet from the launchpad which was used for the apollo missions and later on for the shuttle itself. Then its on to to see a real Saturn 5 rocket and to walk the length of it (its horizontal of course!) is amazing. Then you can enjoy a bite to eat sitting directly under a lunar module.

Numerous numerous restaurants are then just a short drive away from Villa Luja. Outback is our favourite......
