About the property

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 60 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.

I have Upgraded upstairs, so that we now have two Double Bunk Beds in two of the Rooms, Four in Total, Each Bed Sleeps Three (Double on the Bottom, One on the Top) so we can now Sleep Six in each of the Bedrooms, the Seventh Bedroom is Two Single Twins. We can now Sleep 22 in the Whole Villa.

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 Kissimmee

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.

See our Virtual Tour..

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.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

For the second straight year, a group of 7-8 golfers stayed at the house, and we greatly enjoyed it each year. What is particularly excellent is that there are 7 bedrooms, so almost everyone got their own room, and 5 of the rooms had their own bathroom. The lanai with pool and hot tub is another highlght of the’s a great place to relax after a tough day of golfing and beer drinking! The house is in a nice, gated neighborhood and is centrally located to many of the places we wanted to go. I imagine this would be a great place for an extended family to stay as well as it is minutes from Disney.

This home is great for a large family. It has lots of room and the younger ones loved the pool.

  • 4 of 5

The inside of the home was very nice with lots of room for sleeping, eating and relaxing. We appreciated having a high chair, a child's bed, and laundry facilities. The yard and landscaping are okay but they need a little tender loving care.

Owner's Response: Hi Dan. Thanks for your Review, I think you are referring to the Grass not being cut, we sort all problems out the moment we hear about them, and I am glad such a Large Group (19- 22) enjoyed my Home.

Our family had an awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 families, 22 total persons! We loved the time we spent together at the pool and at mealtimes! My husband and I take our kids and their kids on a vacation every year; this is the first year we rented a house where we could all stay together. We also visited Universal. It was awesome! The grandkids and kids will talk about this year’s vacation for years!

Excellent stay at Formosa Gardens

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at 'The Water's Edge in August and had a wonderful holiday with our family of 12. The property is more like home from home than a holiday home. The decor is lovely and well stocked with crockery etc. Beds are very comfortable and furnishings are lovely. The children loved the pool and spent many happy hours in it. Theme parks are fairly close so very convenient. It was everything we had hoped for and more and I would highly recommend.
