This stunning custom built Orlando villa is perfectly placed to be the perfect home for your magical vacation. It is situated on one of the most desirable lakefront lots in the prestigious gated and walled community of Formosa Gardens Estates. The community is 2 miles, being 5-8 minutes from the entrance to Walt Disney World and less than a mile to the nearest golf course. Shops, restaurants, banks, and mini golf are all in close proximity.

At over 7200 sq ft of under cover space of which 5800 sq ft is air conditioned space, there is more than enough room for even the largest family gathering to have their own personal space. The non-smoking and pet free villa accommodates 16 people and has 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, large family room, large screen theater/cinema, kitchen, two dining areas, purpose built games room/2nd living area, double garage and a large private sun deck and pool.

This home comprises of a grand master suite, and three additional master bedrooms, all of which have a king bed, bathroom and state of the art large screen wall mounted high definition TV with cable and Blu-ray DVD player.

The fifth bedroom has two full beds with its own bathroom, the sixth bedroom being a twin bunk room (twin over full) and finally the seventh bedroom has two twin beds, with the twin room and the bunk bed room sharing a bathroom. Each of these bedrooms has a wall mounted TV with HD cable TV, and an xbox one / playstation 3 games console.

The living area boasts an enormous state of the art 70 inch full high definition 3D LCD TV connected to HD Cable and a 3D Blu-ray player. All the master bedrooms have a minimum of a 46 inch LCD screen, with the grand master suite benefiting from a 65 inch 3D screen.

If size is important to you, then treat yourself to the latest movie in the theater which for the technically minded has a 103 inch screen, full high definition 3D projector, Blu-ray/ HD-DVD player & dolby 7.1 surround sound. For the ultimate comfort and luxury, the seating is out of this world with seven leather seats each having recline and foot support.

The games room is purpose built and is therefore not your usual garage make-over, and as such the room is light and airy which makes it a place you actually want to spend time in. The room is equipped with a 8ft slate pool table and 7ft air hockey table, in addition to a living area, TV and wet bar. Double doors lead out onto the amazing pool deck.

If the interior hasn't given you the wow factor you require to spend your vacation at this villa, then the pool and sun deck will truly amaze you! The screened sun deck is a massive 88ft x 42ft and has the best uninterrupted view of Star Lake where you will see plenty of birds fly over and paddle. A huge 70" outside TV is also provided on the deck to cater for our guests who cannot cope without watching their team.

  • 5 of 5

First class villa with everything you could need, Paul and Rachael made it easy from start to finish, very professional. I have stayed in many villas over 30 years of visiting Florida and this is the best villa I have stayed in, beautiful villa, amazing pool area and close to the parks. Thank you for letting us stay in your villa, and hope to return one day.

Excellent vacation villa on a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Star Lake Manor with our family members, in total 9 adults and 4 kids. The information we received before arrival was very complete and helpfull, describing all important equipment in the house, directions to get there, and it had information about restaurants and attractions nearby.

The location in the gated community of Formosa Gardens is very good. The house offers great lakeview and it's very relaxing to sit on the large pooldeck or on the balcony and enjoy the surroundings. The distance to all major attractions is very short: Disney is just minutes away while SeaWorld and Universal are a 20-30 minutes drive.

The house is in optimal condition and has everything you need. We all enjoyed the pool very much. Especially the kids couldn't get enough and played in the water everyday. As the house as lots of other fun available, like X-boxes, a games room and a cinema the kids were playing in the pool all the time. The cinema is fantastic, I wish we had more time to enjoy some more of the great movie collection including some of the newest 3D Bluerays.

The contact with the owners, Paul & Rachel Sharrock was easy and responsive. They've put a lot of effort in making our stay as comfortable as possible. The local management company answered our questions and remarks and were very helpfull as well.

We would love to come back here and highly recommend this vacation home.

A Class Act! Fun / Enjoyment / Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Star Lake Manor has gone beyond the expectations of a rental home in Kissimmee. There were 15 of us(5 families) ranging in ages from 6 to 66. Everyone loved the home inside & outside. There were no disappointments!! The owners Paul & Rachel have gone to extremes with this home to provide luxury & fun in one package. Most important everything worked(pool heat, whirlpool settings, all pool LED lights, Barbecue & outdoor bar, Cinema theater room, 3D movies, great movie selection, Game room with bar, etc). More then enough room for everyone!! Location, Formosa Gardens is the place to be close to everything. The days flew by quickly. Rent it, it's worth it & You will Love it!! The owners are awesome to work with!!

Best rental property by far!!

  • 5 of 5

Star Lake Manor was the icing on the cake for our family reunion!! It was literally hard to leave the fun of the home theater or backyard pool to go to the Disney parks!! We won't book anywhere else again : )

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Star Lake Manor. This is the ultimate in luxury for a large group. The owners have thought of everything you could ever need while on vacation and the pride they have in their home shines through with all of the upgrades they have made. Paul and Rachael were great to deal with.

I was with a group of friends playing in a sporting even at Disney's Wide World of Sports and the home is minutes away from Disney property. Hope to return with the family so they can enjoy this spectacular home.

My family and I have just...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from our second time staying at Star Lake Manor. Not wanting to deal with the stress of staying a week in a cramped hotel room we started to look for a home to rent near Disney World. Luckily we came across Star Lake Manor and now my family and I do not want to stay anywhere else. When the home was already booked for our preferred week this year, instead of finding another place to stay, my kids demanded we move our vacation to an available week. The photos in the listing are only a glimpse of how spectacular this home is. The owners, Paul and Rachel, are very nice people and quickly answered our questions and the booking process went very smoothly. The home is very near Disney and only a short drive to Universal or Seaworld. Also many restaurants are within a few minutes drive. The gated community and home security system alleviated any fears we had about our safety. The home far exceeded our expectations. The amenities in the home are top notch, HD TV's in many rooms, several play station 3's, an audio system throughout the home and pool area including XM radio, a Home Theater with reclining loungers and a large blue ray dvd collection. A large gameroom with a pool table, air hockey table. A large heated pool with a water fall, colored lights, a kiddie pool and a spa overlooking a lake. A computer was also available for our use, including a printer and fax machine. There is so much to enjoy at the home some days we did not leave. The home is also very well maintained and clean. The home is a little pricey to rent, but with 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sleeping up to 16 it can easily accommodiate more than one family or group of friends to share the cost and with all the high end amenities, it is a good deal. I know I missed several other features of the home, but do not want to sound like a agent of the owners, I am just a very satisfied renter, I believe you will be too, Only thing I would ask of you is to not book the week I want in 2011. Best of Luck.
