About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

'we left for Disney early morning with all the children, about 2pm left the park (with our return passes) for the Villa for lunch and a dip in the pool- it was great the children fed and relaxed - got a swim-at 5pm returned to the park for the light show and fireworks' the promotion theme park tickets you arranged, inadvance for us with all the discounts and free gifts, made the stay even more special as we did not have to lose time to shop around for them Lastly the new upgrades to the floors and bathrooms are amazing Carol Parks.

Our beautiful and spacious Exective Villa has views of 'Star Lake Reserve' a conservation and nature trail area on this Exclusive Community in the Formosa Gardens Estates. Now experinace the many upgrades. Yet it is just a few minutes away from Disney World Resort's front Door (and to its many theme parks and play areas), the many shops (including a medical center), restaurants, and supermarkets along the famous 192

Our stunning, pool home floor plan provides 2600 sq ft of air conditioned family living space - vaulted ceilings, landing gallery to the upper floor. This layout is equally suited for single or two family parties use. Located on a sunny 11,000 sq ft corner plot, with plenty of clear space to romp on - landscaped on all four sides with lawns, palms trees and with hibiscus shrubs to give an all year 'splash' of color. We are also planning a new BBQ and sun layout area in the garden lawn

The Villa has a large, bright and airy family room to relax in during the day or evening, with comfortable, sumptuous sofas plus an entertainment center with large bran new 52' TV/VCR/DVD combo unit, sound systems with CD player - so that you can either watch your favorite movie or listen to the music that you love to hear.

We have also installed, for all to use, a play station system, a high speed Broad Band internet access, a games room - complete with pool table, darts board, football table (ten different game tops),& 'air' hockey table. The area has its own sofa, TV and music system unit.

The family room opens out to our oversized pool deck and sparkling waters of our 35 by 15 foot pool which has a 'refreshing' water feature to it. At the end of the day relax and soak in the sun on our pool deck furnishings while looking at the colourful range of flowers located in our garden - a real luxurious groungs surrounding the Villa. From the pool deck at night if there are no clouds you can see the Fireworks over in Disney from the comfort of the pool aera perhaps having a BBQ at the same time

Sleeping accommodation at the Villa is arranged to provide a variety of bedroom layouts: the spacious master (en-suite) bedroom has a private access to the pool deck area via its own sitting and reading room, the bedroom has a king-size bed, nightstands with lamps, clock radio, telephone, plus dresser with TV/VCR combo, two walk-in closets, private bathroom with vanity unit (two basins) walk-in shower room and toilet. The second master (with siting area and en-suite bathroom), the third bedrooms offer spacious and comfortable comfort, with queen bed, nightstands with lamps and dressers (with TV and radios), and closets.

There are also two 'twin bed' bedrooms (with adjacent bathrooms) with nightstands and lamps dressers with TV and radio again with closet space. Finally, the sofa in the family room can be converted to a 'queen-size' sleeper as required. And we have not forgotten that this is a family home - we provide for the 'younger team members' a baby alarm system, cot/crib, high chair, and strollers and pool doors are alarmed for security reasons.

The large dining and breakfast areas can easily accommodate eight and six seatings. The kitchen has been fully-equipped with every piece of equipment possible that you could want or need to produce that fabulous family feast or just that quick snack before you 'dash off' to all that fun that Orlando has to offer, right on your doorstep!

We have now installed a 'free long distant' phone system to all landline calls to the USA and Canada For the UK you can purchase a phone card cheaply

If you enjoy Golf then this is the ideal retreat for your location with Greg Norman' Championgate course near by plus some 30 other courses near by to explore. Average cost $30 a round with an electric cart. Want to do something differnt while staying with us - how about a cruze - take a 3/4/5 day cruze for a $100 all in or a flight by ballon over Animal Kingdom and watch the dawn come up - let us know if this is of interrest

For lager groups we can arrnage for the use of the adjoing pool homes 4 or 5 bedroom pool homes with very similar accommodation. All in wlking distance of each other.

So just bring your suitcase and enjoy your Disney Dream Vacation - while at the same time relaxing at our Villa retreat - enjoy the local wildlife and if it is a clear night you may just be lucky and see (at 8 pm) the Fireworks Display over at Disney - just think you can watch it from the comfort of our pool area. Look forward to hearing from you.

Keywords: Luxurious South-Facing pool Villa - with oversize lanai pool deck and 15x35 ft pool all on a 11,000 sq ft corner lot that has sun all day long Ideal for single family's or for large groups. Golf - 30 courses near by

Ask for the promotion code for discounted tickets to Disney, Universal Etc. Theme parks

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying there and wish we could've stayed longer. We stayed there the weekend before we were going on a cruise that left out of Port Canaveral. The drive to Port Canaveral was easy and we were able to enjoy all of the things to do in Kissimmee. The house was very clean and inviting. The kids loved the pool in the back and the rec room. We loved how much space the house offered. Also, the owners have thought of EVERYTHING that you could possibly need during the stay. We loved staying there and hope to stay again.

Wonderful house with view of Disney fireworks

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the house. We loved it so much that we decided to book again. You can see the Disney fireworks from the house and the kids really enjoyed watching the Disney fireworks every night from the house. It was the icing on the cake. The house was extremely clean, even the toilets were sanitized:) The kids loved the pool area and the game room. While the adults loved being able to sit on the deck, BBQ and watch the kids in the pool. The convenience of being able to walk out the back door to the pool without having to lug all your swimming stuff up and down stairs is priceless. Some of our friends rented a house nearby for the same price and their house wasn't as clean, it wasn't in as good condition as this house nor did it have all of the extra things such as plenty of pots and dishes, towels, washer and dryer, cable and wifi. We are glad we chose this house!

Large, comfortable house. Minutes to parks.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, comfortable stay in this 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath house. 3 bathrooms are joined to bedrooms for convenience. The pool was cool but still swimmable, stroller and all amentities provided. DVD player was non working during our stay, game room a plus. Would definitely go back!

Booked a holiday of a lifetime for my family and chose this villa due to it's proximity to the parks. I wasn't disappointed. Huge house, clean, everything you need and more, pool is lovely and the kids were in there all hours. 2 minutes away by car you have hundreds of restaurants, a nice supermarket at the end of the road (don't bother with Walmart etc you don't need to go that far) air con was great throughout the house. NOTE: you can genuinely see the Disney fireworks from the pool area, go out the back , look to the right about 45 degrees at 9.30pm ish and voila! it really is very close to Disney and everything else. Quiet, nice surroundings and a lucky pick by us !

so many bedrooms and bathrooms we didn't use half of them, the huge queen suite downstairs is fabulous.

The house was lovely and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Only slight issue was the pool which is a bit shallow for swimming, especially at one end and is entirely visible from the road. Others around seem to have some shrubs as screening which seems like a good idea. Otherwise very pleased.

Owner's Response: Hi John Many thanks for the review The depth of the swimming pool ranges form 3ft to almost 6ft in the deep end and is the usual depth range for almost every pool we know and we look after 70 homes Regarding the screening we do take your point here and will look at the idea of some bushes to screen the view etc. Thank you as always best regards don and Linda 407 256 0960
