Kissimmee Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, sleeps 12 (3 en-suites)

With free, unlimited US and International land line phone calls and wi-fi, Lake Star Villa is located on Star Lake in exclusive, gated, Formosa Gardens, one of Orlando's best residential and rental developments. Built and furnished 12 years ago Lake Star is quite simply magnificent, unlike anything we build in the UK! The south/south east facing pool enjoys the sun all day and is large, lit, and has a linked jacuzzi (hot tub), great for a soak after a day in the nearby parks!

Beautifully furnished, to a standard, not a price, everything says design and comfort. The two super King Size beds in the master suites are amazingly comfortable! Ground floor has master suite, queen size bed room with its own bathroom and two twin rooms. Upstairs has master suite with sitting area and en suite bathroom. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs.

The large air-conditioned games room features a pool table, football, electronic darts, a multitude of games and puzzles, two bicycles, bar table and stools and a queen size sofa bed! There are two cots for babies plus various other baby equipment items . The family room features a 60' TV.

Fabulous villa.

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this wonderful villa. We absolutely loved our stay, really well presented, so close to Disney, easy to get to the shops and restaurants, the view from the pool and spa are gorgeous and allow you peace and relaxation before/ after the bustle of the parks. The owners are wonderful to deal with .After staying at Formosa we have been well and truly spoilt and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

Can I live here?

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house, and perfect location. The description and photographs do not do this property justice? Very spacious and well laid out, with every bedroom a delight. The pool deck and view are perfect, and it was sometimes hard to leave for the days visit to the theme parks, which are all very close. Having said this, the house is in a gated community that was so peaceful, that the idea that you were located in the middle of the theme park capital of the world, did not seem credible. Sitting by the pool, or in the hot tub, you could easily forget "Disney" for a while.

Just a few minutes drive from the house, the 192 has a restaurant to suit every taste, pun intended. Cracker Barrel for breakfast is our favourite!

Everything that you might need is provided, and with the excellent washing machine it is possible to greatly reduce the amount that you need to pack.

Cannot wait to return. Thank you Suzanne and Graham for the use of your luxury villa.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this home. It had everything we needed. It was close to Disney and had a lot of choices for food and shopping near by. Our kids enjoyed the pool so much. The only thing is the controlling of the A/C. We are from Upstate NY and not used to such nice hot weather. It would of been nice to be able to adjust the A/C lower than 72 degrees. With that said we understood the owners concern about the A/C being set too low and messing up the unit. I would definitely stay in this home again and would recommend it to all of our family and friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate your positive comments. We understand your comments about the A/C but we dare not risk freezing up the unit. Our air con engineer has set the temperatures and we feel we should follow his guidance. Please do come back to stay again and thank you for recommending us. Suzanne and Graham

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three great weeks at this wonderful villa and can only give it our best recommendations. The house was very clean and well maintained, and the owners were very helpful before, during and after the stay. We had to call the management company once and they were very friendly and helpful too.

We were six people in the house; my husband and I, our two young kids and a set of grandparents and the house had an ideal floor plan so that we could all be together but still have a bit of privacy as the in-laws had their own upstairs section.

The gated community is really well kept and peaceful yet at a very convenient distance to all the parks, outlets and restaurants.

All in all a very good experience.

Amazing stay in a wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Lake Star Villa! The villa was well equipped and extremely well maintained. We particularly loved the pool, heated jacuzzi and games room. The villa itself is in an excellent location with just a short drive to Disney and shopping areas. There were lots of restaurants to choose from for an evening meal and all very reasonably priced. We had great communication with the owners from start to finish which was extremely reassuring. They also provided us with some hints and tips of the local area. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to anybody visiting Orlando. Thank you very much!!

MOST COMFORTABLE VILLA WE HAVE STAYED AT

  • 5 of 5

Having been a regular visitor to Florida since 1996 we are all agreed that this villa was the best we have stayed at and would have no reservations in highly recommending it to anyone considering a visit to Orlando.

A previous reviewer commented that the website photos do not do sufficient justice and we can certainly vouch for this.

It is extremely spacious and comfortable and the fact that it is so close to the Theme Parks makes this an ideal spot although it is set in a very secluded and private complex one would think you were somewhere miles from the action.

The 2 master bedroom are enormous and there is more than enough space to allow one to relax in solitude should one wish to do so.

The view from the pool deck is perfect and the hot tube is a welcome addition.

Not much more to say other than we will certainly be recommending this villa to all our friends who are contemplating a visit to Florida.

Lake Star Villa is on Formosa Gardens, the most exclusive development in the Orlando Kissimmee area. We offer beautiful surroundings for your vacation complemented by a hot tub, 60' TV in the family room, Wi-Fi and a well equipped games room! The house backs on to Star Lake so our lawn rolls down to the waterfront. Highway 192 with its shops, restaurants and supermarkets is a safe walk on well lit sidewalks, less than a mile away, Disney is only 2 miles away, near enough to pop home for a swim at lunchtime!

Other Activities: Disney is on the doorstep with all major attractions within 15 minutes

Golf: Six golf courses are located within five miles of our spectacular home. Mystic River is within a mile, and the spectacular Celebration and Disney courses only four miles away. Orange Lake Country Club and Champions gate are both also within 10 minutes so your only problem is choice!. There are golf ranges close by too.

The home's beautiful setting looking south over Star Lake is the perfect place to relax in the warm spa and pool at the end of the day. There are a good variety of quality restaurants in the Formosa Gardens Shopping Village just up the road. There is also easy access to the restaurants in Celebration and along the 192 beyond Disney if you wish to venture further afield.
