Description

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Kissimmee - 'The Water's Edge'

7 Bedrooms 6 Baths + Bunk Area, ( Sleeps 22 ) South Facing, Lake View Villa

WOW!!! Even the other villa owners say this about our home, If you are looking for the best, go no further. This is strictly for you sun seekers, as apart from visiting the Mouse; the sun after all is another great reason to visit Florida. This home has a elegantly-shaped, 36-foot by 20-foot, heated, Hollywood Style designer pool with its own fiber optic light show changing the color of the water every 30 seconds on a huge, 60-foot by 54-foot, south-facing deck, so you can soak up the sun all day, or relax in our enormous, ten-person, hot tub, with your friends and family, while watching the magnificent sunset over Star Lake, cool drink in hand, after your gruelling day at Disney.

If the heat gets you, relax in the air-conditioned splendour of the villa, and the family room with its gigantic 55 inch, ceiling hung, 4K HD TV screen with our home theatre surround sound, better than a cinema, whilst chilling out under our unique amazing Chinese cooling fans. If you have the energy, how about a game of air hockey, pool, or darts, or the PS2 games console in the Bada Bing games room, and if the kids are beating you, send them upstairs, while you feign an injury and get yourself a Rolling-Ball back rub on one of our two robotic massage chairs, or why not open up your Laptop, and surf the net, in our Wi-Fi enabled home, or try your luck, Fishing in the Lake, with one of our Fishing Rods.

When it is time for bed the cosseting continues with our sumptuous king-size, pillow-top mattresses in the three masters and the queen, believe me you just will not want to get out of these things, and why should you, especially with TV/DVD/VCR 27/37-inch LCD combinations in the masters, and 20-inch TV/DVD combinations in all other bedrooms, with over 200 Cable channels, including Fox Sports and the Golf Channel and HBO, we even have a High Powered sound system, to pipe music to every room on the ground floor including the lanai and pool deck, part of villa living is the absence of people knocking on your door hassling you to make up the room, so you can stay there as long as you like, after all this is your home for now.

And it has everything you would expect it to have and more; fully-equipped kitchen, laundry room, towels, do not bring anything but your clothes. Any problems, there is a management company on call 24/7 to help you.

This magnificent home is situated between the Moon and Star Lakes on Formosa Gardens, in its own one-fourth acre lot, assuring you of the privacy that you deserve. If you do not know, Formosa Gardens is renowned throughout the world as the premier gated-community with its close proximity to Disney and shops. This house has been designed in a stunning Oriental theme, and no expense has been spared on this seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home.

About Alan Raymond Godfrey

The photo is of Joye and I on Vacation in Sorrento Italy, we went to attend her neices wedding, Joye was made redundant from her job, at the Bank of America, where she had worked for 21 years, as a Compliance Officer, in the UK Branch.

I, had spent 20 Years in the Sign Trade, and after I had had two Heart Attacks, an By-Pass and some and other Medical Conditions, we both decided now was the time to Retire. we both loved to travel, so that was an ideal time to get out and see the world.

Alan Raymond Godfrey purchased this villa in 2003

Why Alan Raymond Godfrey chose Disney / Orlando

When you drive into Formosa Gardens, you will answer that question yourself, it is just so different from anything around the Disney area, and the homes are so big and spacious set in ther own grounds and not back to back.

What makes this villa unique

We have just about everything in the place, the Fans, The Massage Chairs, the Lake, and that Hollywood Pool.

CORPORATE PARTIES...Why stay in a dingy hotel and pay through the nose for it, more and more companies are now booking rental homes,during there convention or sales meetings, and getting a beautiful home, with you own private pool, at a fraction of the cost of a hotel room...Email or call me, for the prices and dates.

Large ,spaceous villa in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two weeks in October at the Water’s Edge ,a very large ,spacious villa set in a beautiful location.We were a party of thirteen and there was more than enough room for everyone , with more bedroom space to spare.The villa itself is set in a stunning location at the edge of the lake , facing South so the pool area gets the sun all day.It is located only a very short drive from Disney and there are plenty of restaraunts and shops at the end of the road from Formosa Gardens.The highlight for us was the large pool and deck area with hot tub ,this has beautiful views over the lake and gets the sun all day ,we could have easily spent the two weeks out there !!!

Great Villa, Great Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Orlando as a group of 14 family members, including 5 young children.

The villa did not disappoint. It was exactly as advertised and it was clear to see why it had such positive reviews. The bedrooms were HUGE with lovely, comfortable beds, lots of storage space for clothes and the en suites were a bonus.

The kitchen provided enough utensils to make basic dishes at home in the evenings after busy days exploring Disney and the lounge was a great place to relax and unwind in the evenings.

The games room went down a treat with the kids (and the adults too), as did the swimming pool!

We all had a great holiday and really enjoyed living in the Villa for 2 weeks - we would definitely stay here again if we returned to Orlando

Great house for families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for our family vacation! The house was wonderful for the number of people we had, room for all! Disney was only 10 minutes away which was wonderful and the days that we didn't do parks, the pool was the kids favorite! Location is great and close to lots of shopping as restaurants.

We did have a couple of minor issues, which were quickly resolved with an email to Alan.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

11 ladies from Michigan stayed here for our annual golf trip. Beautiful home, plenty of room, great location for golfers. Alan was very helpful giving us info on golf courses close and a name of a golfer that previously stayed there to contact. Home was well stocked with all the necessities towels, glasses, and such. Very helpful on making our payments. Lots of seating in the pool area where we spent most of our non golf time. House is close to a lot of things but not to close to be stuck in Disney traffic. And I think we only set the alarm off twice lol.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. And we remembered not to feed the parrots lol

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When my brother and I decided we wanted to take our kids and grandkids on a family vacation to Florida and Disneyworld, we started searching on the Internet for a house to rent that would accommodate all 17 of us. The house that we found of Alan's in Formosa Gardens Estate fit the bill perfectly. We couldn't have been more pleased. The home was well-kept and clean. When we arrived, the hot tub and pool heater were not working, and the Property Manaagement company was called and responded immediately. We even managed to catch a fish in the stocked pond! We would definitely rent this house again, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a large rental home in a great location, close to everything. Thanks, Alan - it was AMAZING!

This is a great house. Perfect place if you have a large group of individuals who prefer private quarters with all the en-suite bedrooms. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful pool area.
