Welcome!

Our 6 bed (3 en-suite masters) 4.2 bath villa (with a spectacular pool) is where you want to be - as close to Disney as it gets, only at 2 miles from Disney in the prestigious Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens Estate on a QUIET street. Our villa is in the area known to locals as 'the Golden Mile.'

This villa has a stunning 40 foot pool with extra large SPA that is sure to delight everyone that sees it. It is situated in an extra large yard and surrounded by tropical gardens, citrus trees that you are free to pick from and a landscaped pond with a large lighted fountain. You will not get a better pool experience or outdoor Florida living experience anywhere.

Spacious, light & airy, and comfortable, this villa is perfect for a large family or two families travelling together with two separate lounge areas and two en-suite master bedrooms. The first floor master has a king bed and walk in closet. The attached bath connects to the pool deck and features a two sink vanity, garden tub and stand alone shower.

The second floor master has a queen bed and the attached bath features a two sink vanity and a combination tub/shower. There are two other queen bedrooms and two twin bedrooms. One twin bedroom has a colorful Mickey Mouse theme. The other twin bedroom is luxuriously appointed with ornate moldings decorated in Disney colors and is fit for a princess. Each twin bedroom has two beds. All the bedrooms are equipped with TVs, ceiling fans and alarm clocks.

The great room has comfy seating area with a 55 inch flat screen HDTV and a formal dining area and soaring vaulted ceilings; the den has a HDTV flat screen and a seating area that looks out to the pool. The living room and games room have 46 and 55 inch flatscreens respectively for a total of 3 large flatscreens in public viewing areas. Enjoy choosing a movie from the vast catalog of Netflix on the Den and living room TVs. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, oven and hob (stove), microwave, Samsung French door refrigerator and lower compartment freezer with filtered water, ice maker (cubed and crushed), garbage disposal, coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric kettle, crock pot, electric skillet etc.

It is generously stocked with dishes, glasses, cutlery, and assorted pots and pans. A large breakfast room with views to the pool is adjacent to the kitchen. The Air Conditioned game room is perfect for children of all ages to escape the adults and play pool and Foosball and play a WII game. Other amenities include 8 cable TVs, one in every bedroom and one in the den and one in the Games Room.

The villa also has a SECURED high speed wireless network in case you want to bring your wireless capable notebook computer poolside. A desktop Windows 7 computer is provided inside the villa as a service to our guests (it will be upgraded to Windows 10 in the near future). This computer has high speed internet access.

The pool, with killer water views, is one of the largest you will find in a vacation home (40 ft. x 20 ft.) has a built in spa as well. The expansive pool deck is very private, not overlooked by adjacent properties, a feature not shared by 95% of villas in the central Florida area. The pool is also equipped with LED color lighting for nighttime swimming. The pool deck also had its own outside shower. The over 1/4 acre lot on a quiet cul-de-sac provides privacy and this premium lot size is in stark contrast to other crowded vacation villas. We have the largest lot in Rolling Hills and most of the surrounding area.

Within one mile without crossing a busy road there are numerous restaurants, shopping, ATM machine, Walk-In Medical Clinic and Mini Golf.

About Louis & Jean Pannullo

Lou and I live in CT but we long for the balmy weather of the South. Other than that Lou and I are polar opposites. He was fascinated with how things work from when he was a child – taking things apart and putting them together. He started building and fixing TVs from a very young age and then graduated to building computers. He is an engineer and enjoys web site development for the villa and automating pools, sprinklers – etc. I, on the other hand, was a history major and then a teacher and am the very opposite of handy. I love to cook and love having lots of people over to my house so I can feed them. Despite all our differences we enjoy many of the same things. We both are avid gardeners and enjoy walking with our 3 year old toy poodle puppy, Swizzle. We have big family vacations with parents, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. We all get together at the villa and have a blast. We go crazy at the park squeezing in as many rides as we can. When we tire out about mid-afternoon we head on back to the villa have lunch and a swim so we can race to the park and enjoy that evening’s entertainment. On lazy days we just hang by the pool playing Marco Polo or seeing who can hold their breath underwater the longest. When we start to turn to prunes from being in the water so long we head on inside to play board games or Wii. We look forward to those vacations and the special time that we can spend with the family without the distractions of everyday life getting in the way.

Louis & Jean Pannullo purchased this villa in 2010

Why Louis & Jean Pannullo chose Kissimmee

Lou and I sat down together to create our “wish list” for the villa. We have been offering villas for rent since 2003 (VRBO #789). We decided the most important thing was location. We wanted to be very close to Disney in the more prestigious (and less congested) West side. We wanted a view and a large pool with an extended pool deck and a secluded pool (very private). A year and a half passed without me seeing what we wanted. “I guess our list is unrealistic,” I told Lou after so much time had passed. Once or twice I would see a possibility – only to find out the villa was too close to a road or the pool was much smaller than it appeared in the online photos. Finally I found “it”. “Don’t get your hopes up,” Lou said, “it probably is going to be a disappointment like all the others.” I thought to myself, “Lou is probably right.” ? Lou and I knew we liked Rolling Hills –we had targeted it as our favorite development. Only 2 miles from Disney on the Golden Mile and only a mile to shops, restaurants, mini golf and big boy & girl golf, a supermarket, ATM and even a walk-in medical it was ideal. We drove down the tree lined streets with our agent. As we pulled in the driveway I said “Look, I can see the lake and the fountain from the driveway!” I jumped out of the car and ran to the back yard. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the huge expanse of sparkling blue water. “Look Lou – it has a spa!” “This pool deck is huge” I said. While the agent worked the lock we walked around the other side of the house. “Look at this lemon tree” Lou said, “it is loaded with fruit.” As we walked to the front door Lou warned me “OK – the back is great but the house could still be a disaster on the inside – don’t get your hopes up.” After we walked around Lou and I knew we were going to try to get this villa. I picked a couple of lemons up that had dropped to the ground and made fresh lemonade to toast our decision. Our hunt was over – our wish list fulfilled.

What makes this villa unique

We come from a large Italian family and we like to vacation together. Our family tests the house for us. The baby could use a sippy cup, the kids want a Wii we could use another big bowl to put fruit in - we jot down things to get when we are in the villa. We also listen to our guests – our UK guests enjoy a proper electric kettle and other things we had never heard of –egg cups with egg spoons. Often it is the little comforts that really make the villa feel like your home away from home. You also have Jeanie and Lou – we are committed to making your stay at the villa enjoyable and stress free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This villa has it ALL. It is immaculately cared for, beautifully decorated, very well stocked, comfortable, huge..I could go on and on. The pool is much larger than average, just mere minutes to everything you could want from the parks to grocery, restaurants, etc. Very private yard on a quiet court. We have done other Florida rentals and this one exceeded them all by far. Plenty of room for larger groups too. We walked the entire neighbourhood and no home was as nice as this one! The experience with the owner was so pleasantly easy. She communicates very well and I would definitely rent again here. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is SO well stocked - everything you could need and lots and lots of dishes. There is a yard beyond the pool enclosure which is rare and includes fruit trees that made for lovely juice in the mornings! You won't be disappointed whatsoever with any part of this home or what it has to offer. The location couldn't be more ideal.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our two sons, had a fantastic stay at this villa. The villa itself is quite large and is in a great location that provides plenty of privacy. The Disney parks are about 10 minutes away and Universal is 20 minutes or so. Proximity to the parks was important to us in choosing a villa but more important was the pool. The kids had an absolute blast in the pool. In the mornings they would actually complain that they had to get out of the pool to go to the parks. We parents have some nerve! After a long day at the parks it was nice to come back and take a dip. The nightly fireworks from the parks can be seen right from the pool as well. The villa was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The game room was received very well by the kids.

All in all we had a great time and the information that Jeanie provided both before and during our stay was very helpful and appreciated. Would not hesitate to stay here again and will make this our go-to villa for all of our future trips to the Orlando area.

Great villa; awesome pool.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two sons (aged 9 and 11) stayed in this villa for 2-weeks and it was great base for all the parks. Although this villa is big enough for two families, we chose it because we wanted a large, south facing pool, overlooking a lake.

We have stayed in several Orlando villas in the past and this is our favourite. The villa is in a superb location, feels very private and the neighbourhood is very quiet and close to all amenities. The owners provide you with plenty of useful information and I felt they were available at any point during the holiday if needed. The pool was the highlight for us as we generally enjoy spending relaxing mornings around the pool before heading to the parks in the afternoon.

The villa was well equipped and maintained although one or two items of items of furniture are starting to show a bit of wear and tear (to be expected in any villa in my opinion). The beds are very comfortable. Although we didn't travel with girls, the princess room was wonderful with lovely little touches; I'm sure that would be any little girls dream room.

We enjoyed watching Epcot's fireworks from the comfort of the sofa at 9:15 most evenings. A minor negative for me was that we spent a hour or so cleaning the outside rear windows. The view from this villa, especially the sunrise which is often accompanied by hot air balloons in the sky, is absolutely stunning and I found it somewhat irritating to have to look at it through dirty glass. (Please note that the interior glass was clean).

That aside, we loved the villa (especially the pool) and would definitely look to rebook when we return to Orlando.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fabulous holiday in Florida with 5 adults and 5 children aged 8,7,6,2 and 2. All loved the spacious and well equipped villa, the children loving the themed bedrooms and especially the fantastic large enclosed pool. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to go back in about 3 years time.

Such a Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family of four trip to Florida, and our second time in the Rolling Hills area, so we were very familiar with the neighbourhood! The house was excellent! I can't say enough about the location to parks, shopping and groceries.

My intention was to stay and take FULL advantage of the house and the pool, as we all needed a relaxing vacation after our Atlantic Canadian Winter! My children, ages 15 and 17 had other plans! The house was so close to Disney, Universal, and outlet shopping, we were on the go every day....somewhere!

When we were at home, we loved the large pool, numerous TV's and just the overall layout of the house.

The kitchen did have everything you could want, and a little extra you wish you had at your own house. It was spotless on our hassle free arrival, everything is exactly how it is described. AND, it only took us about 10 times out on the pool deck before we noticed the 15sec. delay button so as NOT to set of the pool alarm! :-)

We would definitely come back and would always recommend this house to anyone!!

Thank you Jeanie and Lou for all your help and patience with all my questions!
