About Linda

Hello, I am Linda Tilston and I have been renting property in the Orlando area for over 15 years. My family and I are huge Disney fans and visit the area, staying in both of our villas, several times a year.

Linda purchased this villa in 2003

Why Linda chose Disney / Orlando

We previously owned another rental villa close to Formosa Gardens and chose to move to the estate due to the uniqueness of the larger plots and in particular with our property the wonderful south facing lake view.

We believe that holidays are very important and want to make sure that when you choose American Dream you are choosing a wonderful place to make family memories. To this end we ensure the villa is well maintained and we have a wonderful management company who are available 24/7 to help with all your needs.

What makes this villa unique

Before we owned our own villa we stayed in several hotels, apartments and rental villas. We found the rental villas to have only very basic amenities especially in the kitchens. So, when setting up our own villas we wanted to make them feel like a home away from home. We stay in both our villas regularly and enjoy updating the decor and equipment within them.

Luxury Detached Villa, With South Facing Split Level Pool Deck
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Stunning villa, great location, closest to Disney

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning villa located on the Formosa Gardens Estate; fabulously appointed and with the pool and sun deck facing the Lake for beautiful views and relaxing evening sunsets. There is plenty of space for the whole family and all rooms are fully equipped with all you would expect to enjoy your stay. Everything you need is included in the house, from the fully equipped kitchen to the games room and lounge, with it’s high-spec audio visual equipment for the occasional day-in or evening when you are too tired for the parks.

The gated Formosa Gardens Estate is our favourite location and offers a tranquil setting with peace of mind and one of the shortest journey times to Disney of all – especially when using the Sherbeth Road route to shortcut the traffic on the I-4. This makes it easy to visit Disney and pop back, or go in the afternoons or evenings and avoid wearing yourself out with day-long marathons – you are on holiday, after all! It’s a short drive to the well-known 192 in Kissimmee which offers a host of shops and restaurants. Our favourite restaurants: Longhorn Steakhouse, Outback, Bonefish Grill, Joes Crab Shack which are all within 5-10 minutes ride. Great supermarkets also close by are Winn-Dixie and the Super Target, which offers absolutely everything you could need.

Extremely important is that Linda was superb to deal with, always helpful, very communicative and accommodating of any additional requests. The management team looking after the villa were also very helpful and attentive on the single occasion when we had a question.

Overall, this is an excellent villa, in a prime location and with all the amenities you could ever need. Add to that the personal service offered by Linda and her management team, and this villa should be top of your list when choosing somewhere to stay for a Disney holiday.

Disney world is just 2 miles drive from the villa, with Sea World and the Universal Studios on a direct route

There are restaurants, supermarkets, and shops just a few minutes from the villa.

The villa is set on a large plot which back on to Star lake. A very peace full setting yet still so close to all amenities
