Overview

Formosa Gardens Estate House Rental Photos and Description

Privacy fencing on all 3 sides of the pool area

Presenting one of our most spacious villas in the area's first upscale private pool home resort of Formosa Gardens. This gated resort is less than a mile to grocery and a multitude of fast food and sit down dining restaurants. Same easy drive to I-4 as Windsor Hills as it is located just behind Windsor Hills off Formosa Gardens Boulevard. About 3 miles to Disney property from the community gate.

Enjoy 3,100 square feet with multiple ensuites, newly updated furniture and linens throughout and a fully equipped and upgraded kitchen with corian work tops, four full luxurious baths, a laundry room, five spacious bedrooms (two king master ensuites) and a games room. This impressive villa offers plenty of comfort and space to relax and enjoy your holiday.

The pool and spa at this location are gas heated for the most consistant temperatures during operating hours ... especially in the winter time! It is also equipped with solar heating panels which help maintain the temperatures in this oversized pool. There are no rear neighbors and the property is fenced to the right and left of the pool for added privacy.

A larger deck means room for more loungers than you would typically find at a rental home, and plenty of space for everyone to sun bath!

Formosa Gardens is as close as you can get to main restaurants like Outback Steakhouse, Carraba's, Red Lobster and Cracker Barrel as well as Subway, Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy's.

There are no clubhouse facilities located in Formosa Gardens.

NOTE REGARDING HOLIDAYS: If your dates are mid-week check-in and/or check-out you must pay a full 7 day holiday rate minimum. We do not rent Christmas and New Year's in the same rental period unless there is a 14 night rental. Same rule applies for mid week check in/check out.

absolutely gorgeous property and home. The house is spacious, spotless and the pool area awesome. We spent most of the week at the house as the kids didn't want to leave. The pictures don't really show the grandeur of this home. We will definitely be back and my sister is planning their next vacation there. Thank you so much!

Would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Dawn we wanted to thank you for an outstanding time and your help with planning our trip. This house is incredibly spacious - plenty of room for 10 persons. The pool area is quite private with fences on all three sides. The yard is well maintained - the flower bushes behind the pool made for beautiful cover. We spent a lot of time in the pool area - even spent one less day at the parks because we were all feeling so lazy!! I would highly recommend this home and will definitely be telling our family and friends. Have a wonderful fall - I hope it cools down for you soon - LOL!

Great retreat for adults and kids alike!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home about 6 years ago and were really pleased to see all the updates from new tile floors to furniture. It was like a completely new house for us! The game room is amazing - love the Monsters Inc theme and the bright colors!

This home is so spacious - it allows everyone to spread out both inside and outside. We love all the loungers in the pool area. Its hard to tear ourselves away to go to the parks every day - that's no joke!

Beds are comfortable and linens are in top shape. We hope it won't be so long until our next visit! Thanks Dawn for making our trip back here so relaxing - appreciate the tip about Millers Ale House!!

Our 5th year back to our Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Love the new game room - so bright and colorful :) Appreciate that every year we return there are some updates - painted pool deck and interior ... this is officially our Florida home away from home - we can't wait to return each year. Appreciate all the tips that Dawn is quick to share when we book each year. I don't think there's a question she hasn't been able to answer for us. Keep up the great work! We'll be back!!

Lots of space, beautifully maintained. Great pool area with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We have never stayed in Formosa Gardens before, but knew it was known for its more spacious floor plans. So our family maxed the house with 10 guests and can't believe we were NEVER in each other's way! The pool area is private and clean, we paid extra to have the spa heated and used it every single night. The game room is huge too! Our family didn't want to change a thing except to extend our vacation!!

Formosa Gardens is a 24 hour gated community nestled in the heart of the vacation sector off of US 192 (West Irlo Bronson Highway). It is only a minute to restaurants and grocery - and 5 minutes up the road from Super Target, more grocery and loads of restaurants from Panera to Bone Fish to Flippers Pizza! Just 2.5 miles to Disney property or around 4 miles to I-4 to head to Universal Studios.
