About Angela Howe

The home is British owned. We bought the house to run as a short term rental property.

Angela Howe purchased this villa in 2006

Why Angela Howe chose Kissimmee

We love Formosa Gardens as it is so close to the Parks. It is very safe and we like the space between the houses. It was also the first place we stayed in when we first visited the area.

What makes this villa unique

Safe, close to Disney, south facing pool.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

What can we say about Whispering Palms, we have stayed here many times and it never fails to disappoint. Every aspect of this villa is wonderful from the location to the very comfortable bed in the master bedroom. Should there ever be a query the management company deal with it promptly. The owner is friendly and super helpful which is one of the many reasons we keep returning.

We stayed here for 3 weeks in October/November. This is a fantastic home with lovely furnishings, great layout and a high class vacation estate.

The pool is south facing and has sun ALL day with lots of room to sun bath or sit in the shade on the patio area. We have stayed in lots of Kissimmee homes in different estates and this is really one of the nicest!

Formosa Gardens Estates in really close to Disney, great restaurants, supermarkets etc

If you are looking to stay in a fantastic home, fantastic pool and fantastic location then this home should be on your short list!

Thank you for a great stay.
