Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12-13)

Welcome!

Our 6 bed (3 en-suite masters) 4.2 bath villa (with a spectacular pool) is where you want to be - only 2 miles from Disney in the prestigious Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens Estate on a QUIET street. Our villa is in the area known to locals as 'the Golden Mile.' Within one mile without crossing a busy road there are numerous restaurants, shopping, ATM machine, Walk-In Medical Clinic and Mini Golf.

Spacious, light & airy, and comfortable, this villa is perfect for a large family or two families travelling together with two separate lounge areas and two en-suite master bedrooms. The first floor master has a king bed and walk in closet. The attached bath connects to the pool deck and features a two sink vanity, garden tub and stand alone shower.

The second floor master has a queen bed and the attached bath features a two sink vanity and a combination tub/shower. There are two other queen bedrooms and two twin bedrooms. One twin bedroom has a colorful Mickey Mouse theme. The other twin bedroom is luxuriously appointed with ornate moldings decorated in Disney colors and is fit for a princess. Each twin bedroom has two beds. All the bedrooms are equipped with TVs, ceiling fans and alarm clocks.

The great room has comfy seating area with a 55 inch flat screen HDTV and a formal dining area and soaring vaulted ceilings; the den has a HDTV flat screen and a seating area that looks out to the pool. The living room and games room have 46 and 55 inch flatscreens respectively for a total of 3 large flatscreens in public viewing areas. Enjoy choosing a movie from the vast catalog of Netflix on the Den and living room TVs. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, oven and hob (stove), microwave, double door refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, garbage disposal, coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric kettle, crock pot, electric skillet etc.

It is generously stocked with dishes, glasses, cutlery, and assorted pots and pans. A large breakfast room with views to the pool is adjacent to the kitchen. The Air Conditioned game room is perfect for children of all ages to escape the adults and play pool and Foosball and play a WII game. Other amenities include 8 cable TVs, one in every bedroom and one in the den and one in the Games Room.

The villa also has a SECURED high speed wireless network in case you want to bring your wireless capable notebook computer poolside. A desktop windows computer is provided inside the villa as a service to our guests. This computer has high speed internet access.

The pool, with killer water views, is one of the largest you will find in a vacation home (40 ft. x 20 ft.) has a built in spa as well. The expansive pool deck is very private, not overlooked by adjacent properties, a feature not shared by 95% of villas in the central Florida area.

The 40 foot pool /spa share a spectacular view of a lake with fountain. The pool is also equipped with COLOR lighting for nighttime swimming. The pool deck also had its own outside shower. The over 1/4 acre lot on a quiet cul-de-sac provides privacy and this premium lot size is in stark contrast to other crowded vacation villas.

About Louis & Jean Pannullo

Lou and I live in CT but we long for the balmy weather of the South. Other than that Lou and I are polar opposites. He was fascinated with how things work from when he was a child – taking things apart and putting them together. He started building and fixing TVs from a very young age and then graduated to building computers. He is an engineer and enjoys web site development for the villa and automating pools, sprinklers – etc. I, on the other hand, was a history major and then a teacher and am the very opposite of handy. I love to cook and love having lots of people over to my house so I can feed them. Despite all our differences we enjoy many of the same things. We both are avid gardeners and enjoy walking with our 3 year old toy poodle puppy, Swizzle. We have big family vacations with parents, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. We all get together at the villa and have a blast. We go crazy at the park squeezing in as many rides as we can. When we tire out about mid-afternoon we head on back to the villa have lunch and a swim so we can race to the park and enjoy that evening’s entertainment. On lazy days we just hang by the pool playing Marco Polo or seeing who can hold their breath underwater the longest. When we start to turn to prunes from being in the water so long we head on inside to play board games or Wii. We look forward to those vacations and the special time that we can spend with the family without the distractions of everyday life getting in the way.

Louis & Jean Pannullo purchased this villa in 2010

Why Louis & Jean Pannullo chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

Lou and I sat down together to create our “wish list” for the villa. We decided the most important thing was location. We wanted to be very close to Disney in the more prestigious (and less congested) West side. We wanted a view and a large pool with an extended pool deck and a secluded pool (very private). A year and a half passed without me seeing what we wanted. “I guess our list is unrealistic,” I told Lou after so much time had passed. Once or twice I would see a possibility – only to find out the villa was too close to a road or the pool was much smaller than it appeared in the online photos. Finally I found “it”. “Don’t get your hopes up,” Lou said, “it probably is going to be a disappointment like all the others.” I thought to myself, “Lou is probably right.” ? Lou and I knew we liked Rolling Hills –we had targeted it as our favorite development. Only 2 miles from Disney on the Golden Mile and only a mile to shops, restaurants, mini golf and big boy & girl golf, a supermarket, ATM and even a walk-in medical it was ideal. We drove down the tree lined streets with our agent. As we pulled in the driveway I said “Look, I can see the lake and the fountain from the driveway!” I jumped out of the car and ran to the back yard. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the huge expanse of sparkling blue water. “Look Lou – it has a spa!” “This pool deck is huge” I said. While the agent worked the lock we walked around the other side of the house. “Look at this lemon tree” Lou said, “it is loaded with fruit.” As we walked to the front door Lou warned me “OK – the back is great but the house could still be a disaster on the inside – don’t get your hopes up.” After we walked around Lou and I knew we were going to try to get this villa. I picked a couple of lemons up that had dropped to the ground and made fresh lemonade to toast our decision. Our hunt was over – our wish list fulfilled.

What makes this villa unique

We come from a large Italian family and we like to vacation together. Our family tests the house for us. The baby could use a sippy cup, the kids want a Wii we could use another big bowl to put fruit in - we jot down things to get when we are in the villa. We also listen to our guests – our UK guests enjoy a proper electric kettle and other things we had never heard of –egg cups with egg spoons. Often it is the little comforts that really make the villa feel like your home away from home. You also have Jeanie and Lou – we are committed to making your stay at the villa enjoyable and stress free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This villa has it ALL. It is immaculately cared for, beautifully decorated, very well stocked, comfortable, huge..I could go on and on. The pool is much larger than average, just mere minutes to everything you could want from the parks to grocery, restaurants, etc. Very private yard on a quiet court. We have done other Florida rentals and this one exceeded them all by far. Plenty of room for larger groups too. We walked the entire neighbourhood and no home was as nice as this one! The experience with the owner was so pleasantly easy. She communicates very well and I would definitely rent again here. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is SO well stocked - everything you could need and lots and lots of dishes. There is a yard beyond the pool enclosure which is rare and includes fruit trees that made for lovely juice in the mornings! You won't be disappointed whatsoever with any part of this home or what it has to offer. The location couldn't be more ideal.

Great vacation house

  • 4 of 5
The Big Pool Villa is a wonderful place to stay. The house was clean, spacious, and beautifully appointed. The pool really is the star of the home. It is so much larger than what you typically find in rental homes in the area (this was our 5th visit.) It is also deeper (about 7 feet) - a fact that we loved. We had a couple of negatives: The TV in the game room was not working, it had a note saying they were waiting for a replacement part. This really didn't affect us at all. I could not get the front door lock to accept a personal code no matter how I tried. We had a juice spill in the kitchen which we cleaned up right away, but then we had ants. None of these issues seemed to warrant a call to the management company, and we would certainly rent this home again. We were in Orlando for Disney and Sea World.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you would come back again. We work very hard to try to exceed our guest’s expectations. Unfortunately, our games room TV was out of commission (I will never buy a Phillips again). There was a 36 inch working back up TV in the games room and an additional 8 TVs in the villa. The door code is customizable but it is not necessary to do so. Everyone is provided with a working unique door code that only works for the duration of their stay. We will remove the option for a customizable door code from our literature as it is an unnecessary option that frustrated you. Sweets like juice spills will attract ants. The management company did notify us after your stay that there was a sticky substance on the base cabinets that they cleaned. Had you called the pest company would have been out within 24 hours. We emphasize to all our guests to call if they have any issues and I talk to every guest that answers the phone to see if they have any questions or concerns. A rule of thumb for our future guests if you find a condition that you would report it in a review then PLEASE call us and give us a chance to make it right (and report on our responsiveness as well).
We enjoyed working with you and hope to have you back, thank you for staying with us.

Perfect!

We had 9 people stay here for our Disney vacation. It was just perfect for all of us. The house is beautiful and there was definitely enough space for everyone. My children loved the themed rooms. And the pool was wonderful! The owners were great and very helpful in providing all the info we needed for our stay to be ideal. We are already planning our next trip and will absolutely stay here.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in number of homes in the past and this was by far the best. We found the house well kept, clean and current. We had occasion to contact Jeannie and Lou regarding a situation and they were prompt in communicating and resolving the issue. Watching the fireworks from the pool area at nice was a treat for all of us. This six bedroom beauty is great for a large family or even two families, lots of room for everyone. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

The Villa was large enough for our 3 families, providing space as well as entertainment for everyone. I would return there, and recommend it to friends.

so close to attractions and airport was only 22 miles.

  • 4 of 5
Thank you to the Pannulo family for the arrival phone call and walk through, it helped. We enjoyed being so close to Disney and the ease to get there without a lot of traffic. The home is comfortable and has all you need to relax and enjoy. The 6 & 4 yr old loved tickets bedroom and Netflix on tv. Unfortunately the flu hit us and most of us stayed at home. Great walk in medical clinic only 2 miles away. Only 1 incident was when the property manager walked in on us without ringing bell but used a key. Kind of scarey. But I informed the owner and she was going to talk to him.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the location and amenities of the villa. I am sorry your family was ill during the visit.
With respect to the comment about our MC entering the villa. We retain a fully bonded property manager that has been in the business for 15 years. I immediately contacted the property manager after being called by this guest . The property manager informed me that this was a follow up termite inspection and he was with the inspector who required an escort to complete his inspection . He assures me he did ring the bell and call out identifying himself prior to entering. We have referenced the CCTV tapes and the MC and inspector team were at the property for a total of 9 minutes. As a precaution in the future I have requested that he call any of my properties prior to arriving there and he is to delay any non-emergency visits if possible. However, there will be occasions where the PM has to get access to the property.
It is a big house and unfortunately the guest did not hear the bell. We are very conscious of guest safety and have upgraded the house locks; we have a camera security system, as well as a cellular alarm system that works even if the phone lines have been cut. To reiterate I have asked the management company to enter the rented villa only when he has received permission in the future unless there is an emergency like a burst pipe or other unavoidable situation .
