Formosa Gardens Estates is arguably the closest gated and walled community to Disney World. This luxury gated community has premium Orlando vacation rentals making this a very popular location. Gated and walled presents a secure environment.
Formosa Gardens in Florida offers an exclusive development of spacious, executive vacation rentals and villas, so can cater for parties of all sizes. Most of our Formosa Garden Florida villas have oversized plots, with fabulous pools, spas and extended decks. Many of the Formosa Gardens vacation rentals have the additional benefit of internal games rooms. The wide boulevards and palm fringed streets add to the spacious feel of this Florida community and this spacious well appointed villa in an oversized lot exemplifies the features of this community.
This executive community is an ideal holiday location for families. Formosa Gardens gated community is located off Kissimmee's Hwy 192 West at Mile Marker 4 - less than 3 miles from the Disney theme parks, so that you can be first in the gates each morning!
What makes Formosa Gardens sort after is the size and layout of the homes as most of them have larger than normal plots, pools and are general living space.
Once inside the gates of Formosa Gardens you will feel a world away from the busy Orlando theme parks but once you have had some chill time and are ready for dinner and drinks you have a huge choice right on your door step. Less than two minutes in the car on Formosa Gardens Blvd which is right out of the gates and you have an Outback Steakhouse which is an International chain restaurant serving steaks, obviously as well as fish dishes, wings and there famous Bloomin Onion.
Just a bit further down the road you have a newly opened sports bar called Buffalo Wild Wings which serves burgers & fries plus pitchers of beer and is a great place to watch all of the days games and has a great atmosphere when the matches are live so if sports are your thing this is the place for you. There is also a Red Lobster almost next door serving fresh seafood, clam chowder which I love, also steak and chicken.
Less than 5 minutes from our vacation rentals on Formosa Gardens has a number of restaurants as well as a Super Target super market. From Formosa Gardens head back out to HWY192 and then turn left and head about about a mile down where you will come to some traffic lights, either side you will see a number of restaurants. Located here you have Millers Ale House which is another sports / family restaurant which have nightly specials so check out menu to see whats cooking. On the opposite corner is an Applebees, and then across the road you have Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden, Logans Roadhouse plus a few other like Flippers Pizzeria and Sweet Tomatoes for salad lovers!
As you can see you have access to more than enough restaurants while staying at Formosa Gardens to keep everyone in the family happy. There are of course the usual fast food restaurants nearby like McDonalds, Taco Bell, Burger King for that late night snack or 4th meal as Taco Bell call it and if you love subs you have Subway right there.
Whilst staying at your luxury vacation rental on Formosa Gardens should you need medical help there is a walk-in medical center at Formosa Plaza and a number of pharmacies nearby.

Christmas Week Vacation 12/22/17 - 12/29/17
My wife & I stayed at Villa Serena along with our family who all gathered together for Christmas. The villa was spacious and beautiful! Everyone had their own luxury master bedroom suite to call their own and provide them their own "space". The pool (heated), was the center of attraction for everyone to hang out at and enjoy. The weather cooperated as well, making it a great week for outdoor activity. The kitchen was well furnished with everything needed for cooking and food preparation. The villa was clean and neat.
I was the chief chef on the outdoor grill which was nice and big and had plenty of room for all the burgers, steaks and hot dogs that I cooked. We had some great pool tournaments on the regulation sized table in the game room, (plus some good poker games).
From the very beginning of the reservation process, John Rae responded to our questions in a very quick manner. He was very informative and gave us much information about the villa and surrounding area activities. Once we were at the villa, Dee handled any questions we had and was quick to come to the villa and talk with us personally and give us a complete tour of the villa and instructions on the different functions i.e. door alarms etc.
The ultimate surprise was Dee arranging for a Christmas tree to be brought to the villa and set up complete with lights, ornaments, garland, and ribbons. It was beautiful! This extra touch made our Christmas villa complete!
We have stayed in villas in this area before, but by far this was the greatest! I would
recommend John Rae and the on-site management team headed by Dee, without hesitation to anyone considering a vacation villa.
Jack & Mary Hayes
Thank you for a fabulous review which highlights a number of the features of this villa. We are all working hard to offer a comprehensive and quality service and the villa is constantly being improved. The villa at the moment is ahead of the photos.
The new pool furniture, deck paint colours, kitchen electrical goods and the wooden floors to mention just a few items not in the photos yet..
We are very fortunate to have a villa so close to Disney and we are striving to keep this villa at the very top. The villa pool is gorgeous and South facing which always helps.
The rest of course will be up to the guests to make this the best holiday ever.
I am delighted that the Christmas tree went down so well and that you have all enjoyed the holiday and the villa so much.
We are as happy with this as you are.
We will look forward to hear from you in the future.
It's was perfect for what we needed - loved the pool and the quiet neighbourhood
We brought our family to Florida for my husbands 50th birthday - we had 7 adults and one child - the house was perfect and had everything we needed - although they said they provided garbage bags and toilet paper there was not any supplied. Grocery and liquor stores are close by. Loved all the seating by the pool so we could all hang out and be comfortable for relaxing and dining.
The villa was exactly what our family was hoping for in a rental. We had 11 family members ranging in ages 2-64. There was enough space for everyone to be together or separate. We especially loved the pool. It was HUGE with tons of chairs for everyone in the family. The best part was it was heated to a perfect temperature daily. The kitchen was stocked with all of the tools that were needed to create family meals including a grill outdoors. Every room had a TV and beds were perfect. The owner checked in many times and gave us all the information needed beforehand to make us feel comfortable right away. The location was close to basically everything in Orlando. Disney was only 15-20 minutes. The neighborhood was very quiet and the space between houses really gave us a lot of privacy. It truly felt like a home away from home. We were very sad to leave and look forward to another trip!
The home well exceeded our expectations!! We had 13 people staying in this home for 8 days. We took our 3 married daughters, their spouses and their children for a vacation. There was so much space that we never got in each others hair. The home provided absolutely everything we needed and more!!! The owner was so so gracious and always made us feel like we were welcome. Home was immaculate!! I only hope we will stay there again some time. This would be the FIRST and Last home I would recommend to anyone searching for a vacation spot!!!
Thank you so much for taking the time and listing so many superlatives for the villa. It is very kind of you to do this and to share this with future guests who I am sure will be influenced by your words.
We want to continue to maintain these standards and where we can improve.
We would love to welcome you as return guests to the villa and will look forward to hearing from you.
Our family loved it!
Very nice and comfortable property. Owner was very nice to work with. We will definitely be back!
Thanks to you and to the whole family for "loving" the property.
It is so nice to have such a glowing review.
We will definitely look forward to having you return to the villa in the future.
See you soon.
This villa had a true “Home Away from Home” feeling. Lovey villa for a group of 6 adults.
Very easy to be relaxed and feel at home. The whole house was furnished beautifully and very clean. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family.
We are delighted you loved the villa. We loved having you as guests.
We want you to feel at home and relaxed and thoroughly enjoy all the amenities.
The pool area is lovely and the changes we have made internally to the villa eg the wooden floors just make the villa a home from home.
Look forward to seeing you again.
We are a couple of miles from the Disney Parks. Excellent family fun and the villa is so convenient to travel to after an exhausting day at the parks.
