Emperor's Oasis Villa is located in the prestigious Formosa Gardens Estates. Just two minutes from route 192W, this charming, gated and walled community is located only two miles from Disney's World Drive and a few minutes drive to a grocery store, pharmacy, medical clinic, restaurants and shops.

Located on a quiet cul de sac, our villa sits on a spacious 1/3 acre lot with manicured lawns. Enjoy relaxing and sunning yourself in our comfortable lounge chairs on the screened pool deck. For the dedicated sunbathers, we have an additional 300 square foot sundeck that receives unobstructed sun all day from all directions. There is nothing like a dip in our large pool or relaxing your tired muscles in the built-in spa (free pool/spa heat) after a long day at the parks. You'll enjoy the lanai with overhead fan and chairs to relax in plus a table for outdoor dining. Don't forget to fire up the gas grill for some delicious barbecue.

There are two master bedrooms with king size beds and attached bathrooms. The other two bedrooms each have two single beds and share a hall bathroom. All of the beds have new mattresses and luxurious high thread count sheets.

There are large screen TVs with DVD players in the family room and the game room. All the bedrooms have flat screen TVs and there is cable throughout the house. We also have wi-fi high speed Internet (bring your own lap top) and a phone with free local calling and free long distance to the U.S. and Canada.

The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can cook as much or as little as you wish. The laundry room is equipped with a washer and a dryer. This is so convenient, especially when traveling with children, because you can pack fewer clothes. There is an ironing board and iron available as well.

For the wee one in the family we have a high chair, a stroller, and a portable crib/cot.

Our completely finished, climate controlled game room features a 50” TV with Blu-Ray player, Wii console with games, foosball (table football/soccer) table, large air hockey table with lights and electronic scoring, video arcade with classic video games from the 70s and 80s, children’s play table and chairs, train table, books, toys, board games, DVD library and a couch with two recliners. Simba (the Lion King) as a cub and Mickey with his friends on safari will watch over you from murals on the wall.

For the comfort of all of our guests, this is a non-smoking home and pets are not allowed.

About Carolyn

We live in Oregon after many years of living numerous places in the US and Europe, mostly Germany. One of us is from Maine and the other is an Oregonian. We have two wonderful children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, a wonderful son-in-law and seven delightful grandchildren who light up our lives.

Carolyn purchased this villa in 2009

Why Carolyn chose Kissimmee

Formosa Gardens Estates is the only community that we considered after viewing all of the nearby communities. It is beautiful and peaceful with space around the homes.

We fell in love with this house. It is spacious and comfortable. It sits on over a third of an acre which means we can enjoy our lawn and the lush Florida plants.

This is the place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa several times. We have always had the best experience here. It is very clean and peaceful. The game room is very well utilized by our kids. So much for them to do there. The pool is our favorite place. After a long day of crowds and commotion at the parks, it is awesome to be able to get some dinner cooking in the oven, while hanging out in the pool and relaxing. You can't beat this house. It is in a beautiful, relaxing neighborhood. A great location, close to the parks, grocery stores, and souvenirs stores. Everything you need is here. We love having a washer and dryer in the house. Big spacious rooms. You can't go wrong with this villa.

Perfect villa and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa as it looked beautiful on the website and in our preferred location to Disney. We have stayed in several estates around this area and Formosa Gardens is by far the best.

The estate itself is so clean/tidy and peaceful.

The villa was spotless on arrival and entry/directions from Carolyn were great.

The air conditioned fully converted games room was well utilised by my 5yr old. It was a great space and the Wii/games and huge cable TV were great.

Ann that manages the villa was very helpful and all communication with Carolyn (owner) prior to our arrival was very timely.

The closeness to Disney, shopping, restaurants is great .. all within a few minutes.

The pool area was again spotless and very inviting for the lazy afternoons by the pool. Plenty seating, pool toys etc.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and hope to return one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Pamela. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as our guests. We want our villa to be comfortable and enjoyable for all of our guests and above all clean. Formosa Gardens Estates is the perfect location because it is so close to Disney and it is also easy to travel to other attractions from there. Our large lot provides more space between villas so our guests can have peace and privacy.

We spent a lovely week at this house over Thanksgiving. We hit multiple parks and even the children had a hard time deciding which was better, this beautiful, well-appointed home with pool and hot tub and game room or the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom! Makes it easy for everyone to have a good time and get rest, too. We were very comfortable with two families of two children each, more than enough space for everyone, and good pool safety features (door alarm, etc.). Restaurants and grocery stores, as well as fun non-park activities, are unbelievably close by. Also, a very responsive property manager who made us feel welcome, answered our questions when we called, and even mailed us a special sleeping friend who got left behind! We are hoping to return soon and recommend it to anyone!

Emperors' Oasis is an exceptional villa - this was our 6th visit to this area of Orlando and this was certainly the best villa in which we have stayed. The facilities in the villa are excellent and the condition of the villa is fantastic.

In addition, dealing with Carolyn was a real pleasure and having Ann (the property manager) living locally was also a real plus.

I would strongly recommend this villa!

First class

  • 5 of 5

Everything was even better than expected. This villa is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need.The pool and hot tube are a dream.

This is living in first class. Also Carolyn is a delight to deal with,Thanks again for all your help.

Can't comment on the the local management team as I didn't have any issues, but I have to mention the poolman, who was sooooo helpful with our trips to Disney. Please pass on our thanks.

For those with small children there are two cots, a high chair and two strollers available.

Formosa gardens is beautiful and very close to everything.

Will definitely be going back.

Emperors Oasis is wonderful! It is even better than the pictures. It is beautiful as well as comfortable and it was wonderfully clean. We have stayed in Kissimmee rentals 10 times as well as at 6 other vacation rentals in other states. This was far and away the best!

Formosa Gardens is a lovely gated community and it is nice that the houses are not as close together as in most neighborhoods. Very peaceful and relaxing. Being so close to Disney, we could come back to the house for a swim and ameal then return to Disney later for the fireworks. It is an easy drive to Universal and Sea World.

We all enjoyed the pool and relaxing on the lanai. The kids really enjoyed the game room while the adults had a peaceful break. Then it was time for an air hockey challenge.

The owner is very helpful and answered all of our many questions. The property manager lives on the next street. She is very responsive and even showed us how to work the remote when we messed it up.

Emperors Oasis made a great vacation even better! We will be back.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed our home. We want a stay at our home to make a fun vacation even better. There is nothing better after a day at Disney to make the short drive back to the house then cool off in the pool before barbecuing on the grill and eating poolside.

We fell in love with Formosa Gardens when we stayed in a lovely villa here on our first trip to Florida with our children and grandchildren in June of 2009. We returned two months later and after looking at fifty houses in the immediate area chose this gem in Formosa Gardens. The homes are lovely and the lots are large.

Other Activities: Mini golf, shopping
