About Christine & James

We are a small, family-run business offering a collection of luxury yet affordable holiday/vacation rental villas in Florida and Spain. We began in 1987 with a villa in Spain, used mainly for family holidays. Since then we have slowly grown, and with it our wealth of experience - which we are happy to share with our guests.

Christine & James purchased this villa in 2007

Why Christine & James chose Formosa Gardens

We knew this particular plot was magical the moment we stepped on to the virgin soil. It took 5 years in the planning and building with love. The magic just gets better over the years. When our guests book St Georges Manor they can be confident that this is the home they will stay in and barring a disaster you will not be moved.

Movie Stars

  • 5 of 5

If this house was a parrot it would be repeating WOW WOW WOW every two minutes. From the moment we swept up the driveway to the big double doors we felt like royalty or movie stars. We have stayed in FG twice before but never stayed in such a beautiful home. The owners have lavished much love and attention to detail. Everything about this home is perfect, except having to leave it. All the rooms are very generous in size and the 8 bedrooms are spread out to the 4 corners so we felt very private. The bedrooms are named after English country houses which seemed very apt. The pool is also superb, plenty of sunbeds and dining chairs. Very sunny from late morning and then all day. We fished at the lakeside, you feel are are in the heart of the countryside and can only see the odd house. It is much nicer than looking over the other lake when all you see and hear are other houses. The shopping plaza is very impressive with many top restaurants. We shop at Target for groceries which is only around a mile away and plenty of new restaurants have recently been built near Target. It was very quick and easy to get to Disney. Just 5 mins. Harry Potter at Universal is as good as they say, don't miss it. Only around 15-20mins drive. We spent a happy day at Cocoa Beach on the East Coast which took under the hour. Blue Springs is also a wonderful day out, between Orlando and Daytona Beach. Look out for the festivals at Lakeridge Winery, North on Hwy 27.Great Live music all day and it's free. Cheap wine and beer. Good food. The owners Christine & Jim were so knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The same for the management co and the housekeeper. Dee and Carolyn are a credit to them. We can't wait to return to St Georges although next time we mostly prefer to stay at our home from home rather than go out.

What a fantastic experience from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was super impressive throughout. The kids (5 of them, aged 3-6) especially loved the pool, which had also a shallow section which was perfectly suited to the younger kids. The hot tub with bubbles was also a treat. The pool temperature of the regular pool (85 F) was very pleasing as well. The house itself is very well furnished, and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of space for our party of 13 to spread out in, given the 8 bedrooms. The movie theater got a good amount of use, whether from Netflix, or regular TV. We used the outdoor barbecue grill once as well. The patio is quite spacious, and we all dined out there several times. The property is very centrally located to Highway 192, with numerous restaurants, shops, and supermarkets, and to Disney World (you can use a shortcut to get there, too). There were so many other things to do in the local area, we didn't get a chance this time around to take advantage of them. Christine was also very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process, starting from initial questions about the property, to booking it, and providing more specific information about the house (about cribs and strollers, which are available to use). We would certainly recommend this beautiful villa to anyone else. I don't think you can go wrong!

The ultimate vacation home for relaxtion and fun!

  • 5 of 5

By far the most beautiful home in Formosa Gardens. Our family were lucky enough to stay at this elegant home during the Thanksgiving holiday. It provided our group (ages 1 through 62) a perfect home for the holidays. The children loved the pool and the theater and the adults simply loved everything about this home. I have rented from VRBO and Home Away for several years and this is by far the most lovely and well-appointed home we have stayed at. A big thank you to Christine who was so responsive to our questions, our needs and just a lovely individual to work with!!! We are already talking about coming back.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to welcome Jane and her family for such an auspicious occasion and so pleased St Georges Manor fitted the bill. Many congratulations.

Everything we hoped and more!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just finished a weeks vacation at St George's Manor, we had a party of 15 with age ranges from 15 months to 60+ years. Everything about this lavish home is perfect, from the moment you punch in your key code entry you know you have made the right choice!

The hardest decision the family had to make Is who is having what room! Me and my wife had taken the suite on the ground floor, the walk on wardrobe with windows was the size of a single bedroom back home and we used this for our baby room!

2 days into the holiday my wife and I got married on the beautiful lake just to the side of the property, everything was perfect for the photographers to the caterers to the flowers, with enough room and tables in the villa to seat 18 comfortably.

The outside area has ample seating and the pool is fantastic, we did like that every door leading to the pool has a baby alarm, as most of you know it's important to feel safe with little children moving around the property.

The house is situated in Formosa Gardens and you have a great choice of restaurants and supermarkets right on your doorstep.

Outback Steakhouse, Italian pizza house, Taco Bell, red lobster, are within a 15 minute walk or a short 3/4 minute drive away, with numerous other restaurants just a bit further down the road!

I will say if we arrange another large family holiday we will not look anywhere else than this fantastic property!

What a holiday! So sad to leave!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for such a glowing review- your happiness and enjoyment in St George's Manor is why we do this and I'm so glad we are achieving a good standard in our homes. Your wedding on the lake sounds magical and we wish you both happiness in your life together. We are so humbled to be able to be part of this special moment in your lives which you will fondly remember in the years to come. Thank you again for the positive feedback and providing an informative review to our future guests - I am sure they will appreciate it. We look forward to welcoming you back any time - possibly for a special anniversary ;) Best Regards Chris

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at St. George's in July 2014 and had a fabulous time. The house is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show. We were extremely pleased with the house, location, owner and property manager - everything exceeded our expectations. The house has an excellent layout which allows for great gathering places, combined with private areas. We were two families, plus two sets of grandparents and not once did we feel cramped, but at the same time we felt we made good use of the entire house. We originally considered renting 2 smaller houses, but we are so happy we stayed at St. Georges instead. Our days typically consisted of going to a theme park in the morning, returning hom after lunch to swim, the kids would watch a movie in the theatre before dinner, we cooked dinner in the outdoor kitchen and used the pool some more in the evening - a wonderful family trip and lots of great memories. 5 out of 5!

Owner's Response: Your review is very much appreciated. If our guests are happy, so are we. St Georges is wonderfully situated very near Theme Parks and restaurants and the convenient location certainly helps makes the day seem longer when you can fit in so many activities. Thank you for the helpful comments. .
