THE ULTIMATE WEDDING VENUE

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from the most amazing week in 'The Grand' at Formosa Gardens.
This was our Wedding Week and I can only say, it was absolutely perfect in every way, from the initial booking with Mike, through the Wedding Planning with Penny and then the Villa.
We had seen the photos and read the listing many times over, but we just did not expect this location to be so beautiful. The interior is exquisite, so well planned and the decor is to die for. My family could not believe it.
We held the ceremony in the Grand Foyer and entered by the Grand Sweeping Staircase, it was perfect, just like a Hollywood Movie.
Being directly on the lakefront was a bonus, we had some beautiful photographs taken at the waters edge, very romantic, the day was finished with outside catering by the pool. There were 20 of us staying, yet we could still lose each other, everyone had a suite and nobody wanted to leave the Villa.
I honestly cannot say enough, we are still talking about it everyday.
This has got to be the Ultimate Wedding Venue, we have already booked to return for our first anniversary. Thank you.

Management company not axcountable

  • 3 of 5
Grand Formosa was a large and comfortable home to stay in but for its size.. It really needed 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers and 2 washing machines.

I have rented a number of homes and this was the worst management company ever! I now understand the difference between working with a home owner vs property manager. On our arrival Saturday evening we realized the washing machine was malfunctioning. Although we realize that appliances break or breakdown (such as the rusted grill that had only 2/3 of the burners working, living room tv with loose cords that only allowed us to hear and not see DVDs, outdoor 2nd floor tv with a crack in it, Xbox with no controllers, multiple lights with bulbs burned out, wine cooler that malfunctioned). The lack of a washing machine made for a very uncomfortable vacation. Each of the 9 bedrooms had only 2 towels and a few pool towels. It was really absurd of the management company to tell us to reuse towels that were taken to the beach. Our minor request to have at least the used towels exchanged for new ones was disregarded. So instead we made lasting memories of having to hand washed our clothes and towels.

There was no follow through with Jeeves management company.. I made daily calls that resulted in many repair ppl coming out without explanation of when the repair would be completed. Jeeves was not transparent about what was going on and for how long we would need to keep hand washing our clothes.. The washer was finally repaired late Thursday night..

Often it is not the package but the experience that people remember most. Did anyone from the company address my multiple calls with empathy? No.

Before I make another booking with Home Away, I will be sure to consider property managers vs owner managed properties!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed Formosa Gardens 1. The home was so beautiful and clean. We enjoy it so much that we wanted to spend most of the time at the house. The beds were so comfortable and it had plenty of linen and towels. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.

I can not describe in words how amazing this holiday was for my family. My husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary with our six children (ages 22 - 30) and their significant others. There were twelve of us in total. The accommodations were luxurious and overwhelming! We loved it so much we didn't want to venture to the parks! I would highly recommend this property (and already have) to all of my friends. We will not hesitate to reserve another property for another vacation...thank you again!!

Absolutely Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
This rental was exactly as depicted in the description and photos. All who visited were so impressed by its beauty and cavernous grand rooms and hallways. The property managers were very attentive to every question and need. The net-free pool security system was very reassuring and protected the beauty of the area. This villa is close to everything! Yes, it was very difficult to leave; however this rental provided our family with so many great memories. Thanks to all who made it happen. R. Saunders, Houston, TX
