Description

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Kissimmee

7 Bedroom & 5 full bathrooms, Sleeps 16-18

The Retreat has been furnished and planned to provide a superior vacation home for families, reunions or people planning to marry in the Sunshine State - just pack your clothes and go!

From the 40ft x17ft pool with its extended deck, spa and separate character shaped paddling pool, to high quality furnishing, home entertainment systems and games room-there is something for everyone.

The Retreat has 3 Master Bedrooms, 1 Queen Bedroom, 1 bedroom with 2 full size beds and 2 Twin Bedrooms (one with 2 sets of bunk beds) - sleeping 16-18 altogether. We have avoided 'theming' the villa so that kids of all ages can enjoy.

The DVD library has children and grown-up films. There are toys and games in the closet for the kids, an Xbox an Wii with games and a pool table, foosball in the games room for the bigger kids.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Absolutely Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was all we needed and wanted. It was Big, spacious, and very nice and well maintained and kept. The pools were great for the kids. the place is very very close to all main parks- it is in a very nice gated neighborhood- no through traffic- very quite. We will definetly be renting again and telling all of our friends that needs big houses for big familes! The owners we are great to work with! Thanks again for an awesome place to stay!

Wonderful Experience

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. Everything was great from the décor to the pool, we wanted for nothing. The place was stocked with towels and washcloths which is wonderful, but if your particular like me bring your own washcloths. The only two things that was disappointing was the fact that we spent too much time away so we did not get t enjoy the house as much as we would have liked. Next time we will have to book a longer stay. The second thing which I reported was the Jacuzzi would empty after 8:30pm which I reported but it wasn't resolved. Our guest wanted to take a late night dip but wasn't able to. I loved the alarm system on the door because we had plenty of children so it was a greata safety device in place. Everyone loved the pool, the house was so big that our very large group did not get in each other's way. Would definitely go back again and again and again.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures say a thousand things, but even as beautiful as the pictures of this property are, they don't show enough. Absolutely everything was better than we ever imagined. We drove from Chicago and thanks to good traffic and great weather, ended up in town earlier than we had thought. Rather than stay in a hotel that early night, we decided to reach out to the property owner... calling her at 9pm on the Sunday before Christmas. Even though she had been traveling all day herself, she not only took our call, but she made calls to ensure everything was ready, arranged for us to be able to stay in her villa a day early and called us back with all the info!! We can't say enough of how accommodating she is! Thank you Pauline!!

The house was PERFECT! Fabulous kitchen with awesome high end appliances, a huge washer and dryer, incredible travertine tile and hardwood floors... tons of bedding and towels. Our kids loved the Xbox, tons of DVD's and even a computer for us to use! Sitting under the lanai by the pool with ceiling fans keeping the unseasonably warm 86-87 degree Florida Christmas weather from making us Chicagoans too warm was wonderful.

I think it took us about 5 or 6 minutes to drive to Animal Kingdom... faster than any Disney monorail, bus or boat ever got us from a hotel to the park! Tons of restaurants just as close and a couple of great grocery stores too!

A huge driveway... easily parked 4 cars in it without being anywhere close to blocking the sidewalk... in other homes we've stayed in we were lucky to get just 2 cars in the driveway.

I know we're missing more we could say, but one thing we will say is that we will definitely be back!!

Thanks Pauline!!!

Top End Formosa Gardens Villa, Very Very Clean!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Formosa for many years and have rented several villas, Formosa Gardens is a gated community and if you want to stay in the Disney area I can assure you from experience there is no better! It is within a short drive to all Disney attractions and is located right off of the 192 which is loaded with all the big name restaurants (Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Lobster, T.G.I.Fs, Golden Corral, Cracker Barrel, etc) and shopping (Flea Markets, Gift Shops, Factory Outlets, Super Target, Wal-mart, Ross, etc). Pauline was a pleasure to deal with and this Villa is very very clean, all you can ask for when you make a villa your home for your vacation stay is that it is clean and comfortable, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. My wife also wanted me to make mention of the appliances; the washer and dryer, gas range, fridge, and dishwasher are all top of the line which was a very nice unexpected feature! The pool is huge with enough seating for the whole group to lounge and suntan and the pool heat works great! We will be back soon! Joel

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we've rented a house in Florida and the 2nd time in Formosa Gardens. First, Formosa Gardens is a great community. Second, this house is great. It had plenty of room for the 12 adults and 2 children. The pool was great; especially the attached Mickey Mouse kids pool. The kitchen was great. The rooms were great. The owners / management company were easy to work with and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this place again.
