Recently renovated, decorated & newly furnished. Most recent improvement was to insulate and install Air Conditioning in our games room so it may be enjoyed in comfort year round. Our objective is to provide superior accommodation and exceptional customer service at a reasonable price. We make sure our villa is kept in tip-top shape and fully equipped for your enjoyment. We know that details are important and have gone to great lengths to provide everything to make your vacation a memorable one.

You are probably considering our villa because of its fantastic (close to Disney) location and we have decorated with this in mind. We are sure you will enjoy our Disney theme combined with more adult decorations and touches of whimsy.

For your sleeping comfort our beds have 11” memory foam mattresses. Kitchen appliances include a large refrigerator with in-door ice and filtered water dispenser. Electronics include a 3D TV in the living room & a wall mounted flat screen TV in every bedroom. Cable TV, high speed internet with Wi-Fi access, unlimited free long distance telephone calls to USA and Canada are also provided for your enjoyment and convenience.

Our air conditioned games room is equipped with air hockey and foosball tables while the wall mounted 47' LED TV with XBOX 360/Kinect is sure to provide enjoyment for all ages.

Your private patio & pool have both South and East exposure, overlook a beautiful conservation area and are protected by a screen enclosure.

Close to all Disney attractions, golf courses (next door to Mystic Dunes), restaurants & supermarket (1.5 miles to Formosa Gardens center) and major highways (I4, I429)

We often use the villa ourselves and we take good care of it to make sure everything is well maintained. We employ a local manager to look after the property during our absences but we manage our own bookings and guests really are renting from the owner.

If you are looking for great value, a super well equipped villa, fully renovated, in a prime, Disney / Golf / Shopping location that will accommodate, up to 8 guests, stop looking, you just found it !!

We know that you will enjoy your stay at Diane’s Disney Villa and hope to hear from you soon.

About Diane

I am retired & live in ski country about 1 hour North of Montreal. Love it there but also love to travel & to get away from the snow for a while.

Diane purchased this villa in 2011

Why Diane chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

We owned a condo in Pompano Beach & spent a lot of time there over the years. Our grandchildren are now at the age that they enjoy Disney & that was a major reason I decided to buy a house close to Disney. I chose Rolling Hills Estates for the all the best real estate reasons LOCATION, LOCATION,LOCATION.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is beautifully decorated and is located close to the Disney Parks, numerous restaurants, and near other entertainment options. You can't go wrong staying at Diane's Disney Villa. The owners called several times to make sure everything was to our liking. Truly a FABULOUS place for you and your family to stay in the Disney/Orlando area.

Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Diane and Bob for our fantastic stay in Florida! I was a bit nervous about choosing a home rental as opposed to hotel. I am so very

glad I took that "leap of faith" and chose your rental home for our first family vacation!

From our first communication where Diane explained how HomeAway works, then Diane sending me maps and recommending the best grocery shopping, our vacation couldn't have worked out any better.

My kids were so excited! They chose "their rooms" and we were all calling it home immediately!

Our "home away from home" was located close enough that it took minutes to get to Disney and there were ample restaurants and shopping throughout the area.

We were thrilled to have a swimming pool to use at our leisure. We didn't have to worry about getting home earlier enough to swim! When the kids weren't swimming, they were playing in the games room!

I really can't say enough about our stay. In fact my kids were hugging the palm tree outside before we left. We just didn't want to go home!

Owner's Response: Lara, thank you so much for submitting your review and the nice things you had to say about your rental experience with us. We were so touched by the thought of your kids hugging our palm tree before leaving that we felt compelled to give this pride of place in the REVIEWS section of our listing.. We hope potential guests will read your comments and conjure up the same delightful image as we did. Priceless.

Ahmazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. The house was immaculate. Everything we needed was already there. It was a block away from disney. We enjoyed the house more than we enjoyed Disney. We had two adults, and 4 kids, and it was more than enough room.

Great house but a disappointing experience

  • 3 of 5

The house itself was a perfect fit for my family. We loved the 2 master suites, heated pool and the overall layout. It was 10 minutes to the parks, and close to stores and restaurants. However, we did not appreciate having the owners show up unexpectedly the 2nd day we were there. Also, we were given a heads up that someone would be coming to repair the washing machine, but did not anticipate, as renters, to actually have to deal with it. We came home to the owner sitting in the house waiting for the repair man, and preceded to ask us to call him when the repair man showed up. He did not show up until 8:15 pm, as did the owner again. This put a damper on our experience. We have rented numerous homes throughout the years, and we have never had to deal with the owners in this capacity. Any maintenance or repairs to the property should be done when the house is vacant. I would recommend this property as long as the owners are not in the area at the time of your stay.

Owner's Response: Linda, thank you for your glowing recommendation of the house. In response to the negative issues you mentioned: It was unfortunate that the washing machine needed to be serviced during your occupancy. Our Rental Agreement does state " the owner and management company reserve the right of entry at any time and access will also be allowed for pool service, lawn care and maintenance." but we do our best not to invoke this. In this case we had made every effort to have the washing machine repaired prior to your arrival but we were at the mercy of Home Depot's third party service company. That morning we asked service company call us 1/2 hour or so prior to the service man arriving. They refused to commit to do so but did advise that the time slot had changed from between 12:00PM - 5:00PM to 3:00PM - 8:00PM. Someone needed to be in attendance when the technician arrived hence my presence at the house from 3:00PM until you arrived back at about 4:00PM. The service man did finally call us at 8:00PM to say he would be at the house in about 15 minutes. I called to advise you of this and arrived at the house about 8:15PM. The technician showed up a few minutes later and the service call was completed by about 8:45PM. We did our best to minimize the impact of this on you and kept you informed of the situation as it unfolded. I don't think a 1/2 hour service call should have been sufficient to put a damper on your holiday but the lateness of the call was certainly very inconvenient. I apologized for that at the time and do so again. We are sorry to learn you did not appreciate us dropping by to introduce ourselves and to welcome you shortly after your arrival. On the few other occasions that we have been able to meet other guests they have always appreciated the effort and several have commented positively on this in their reviews. Most of the time we are not in Florida but it is standard practice for our local manager to drop by to welcome guests, address any issues and answer any questions they may have. This is also standard practice of many other owners and managers we know who go the extra yard to provide excellent customer service.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Diane and Bob were fantastic to deal with and our stay was great. Just minutes from Disney properties and easy to get to. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone interested in an off Disney location for some peace and quiet away from the parks.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect home away from home for our week stay for Disney and Universal. The house was clean, comfortable, spacious, just as described. The bedrooms were very roomy with comfortable beds, ample closet space, and bathrooms equipped with the essentials. It was great to have washer and dryer too. Neighborhood was very nice and quiet. Close to a main street that had many shops and restaurants. About at 10 minute drive to Disney.

Unfortunately, we did not use the pool because of the chilly weather (40 degrees one morning) but my son and husband spent the time playing in the game room and they loved it!

I will definitely rent again for a future visit and highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to submit your guest review Julie. We are glad to hear you all enjoyed your holiday despite the cold and that our games room helped to offset the disappoint of not being able to use the pool.
