Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Kissimmee - Formosa Retreat

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Our holiday home is located within the sought after Formosa Gardens, a gated community of exclusive executive homes. A secure, quiet neighbourhood, its’ the perfect location for your Orlando holiday. We are located just off the 192, only approx. 5-8 mins drive from the main Disney gate.

Our house is perfectly located for all the Theme Parks, Shopping Malls, Water Parks, Restaurants and attractions.

Our 3100 q ft home is on a spacious half acre lot with mature planting and screen pool and deck ensuring privacy and comfort.

Our home sleeps up to 14, with 5 bedrooms, two master suites with king-size beds and private bathrooms, one queen suite with private bathroom and two themed twin rooms sharing the fourth bathroom.

We have furnished and decorated the house to make sure your holiday is relaxing and fun, with LCD Flat screen TVs throughout, games consoles, Free Internet and of course our custom designed 38 x 17 ft pool and hot tub!

We also have our Games room with Ping pong, air hockey and fuseball and we provide bicycles for you to explore the local area.

We provide a huge selection of baby equipment for your convenience including high chairs, strollers, booster seats, cribs and pack and play crib.

We want our guests to feel as comfortable as possible and we are always updating the house to keep it fresh for returning visitors. We love our stays at the house and we want our guests to have the same enjoyment from it. Located close to the parks and attractions allows long days out to be followed by a very short drive home afterwards meaning the holiday is as stress free as possible!

Please see our photos and website which also has a floorplan, link below, to really appreciate the beauty of our holiday home, and please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We have owned the property since it was built in late 2000 so we know the house and area very well, we'll happily share with you our experiences, suggestions and tips so you can get the best from your stay.

About Ann Wells

We hope you like the look of our home and we'd be delighted to share information with you about what attractions, restaurants etc we go to when we are staying in Florida ourselves.

We've owned the house since it was built and continue to renovate and update it so it's fresh for returning guests.

Ann Wells purchased this house in 2001

Why Ann Wells chose Disney / Orlando

We chose Formosa Gardens due to it's location (literally 5 mins from Disney), the fact the community is secure and private and the general high standard of homes on the estate. It really is the sought after location for people visiting Florida for Disney, Universal, Sea World etc etc

What makes this house unique

Benefits from the spacious and luxury feel both inside and out that isn't available with many Florida rentals.

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was absolutely WONDERFUL!! It was a very easy check-in / check-out process. The house was HUGE with everything we needed and more. We stayed for a weekend but, I'd love to go back and stay for a week so, that we have more time to enjoy the house as well as the parks.

Beautiful Home and Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this home with others, to see one of the children perform in last year's Candlelight Processional at Disney. Ann could not have been more patient, kind and responsive to me at a very stressful time for our families! The house was perfect in every way, and even with many adults and children the house seemed enormous, with room for everyone. The location and neighborhood are perfect for touring Disney, everything you need and the parks are close by. This is such a lovely neighborhood! We have stayed in many rental homes in the area, but this home is far and away the best we have ever stayed in. Highly recommend this home and the owners!

Beautiful , relaxing, safe, and comfortable. We loved everything about the house, and the area.

  • 5 of 5

My entire family stayed in this beautiful house for a week. We had 11 people and there was enough room for us all and be comfortable. We loved hanging by the pool and just relaxing. The gated community was clean, safe, and well kept. We would definitely love to rent the home again.

Clean and properly maintained.

  • 5 of 5

I've been renting vacation homes for about 12 years now and the formosa gardens subdivision is by far the best area overall. Nice pool and spa in this home. Everything was maintained as expected and the owner was a pleasure to work with. I have stayed in at least 40 different homes in the Orlando area, as we go 3 to 4 times annually, and this home is in my top 5.

This is the perfect vacation home! Clean, fully equip, truly spacious. The neighborhood quiet the kids enjoyed the themed out bedrooms, game room, pool, extra board games etc...that was provided. The bikes that was provided was a great touch, they where able to get out the house take ride through the neighborhood. The owner(s) are so accommodating, responded back to my questions with a great sense of urgency and consideration. Great location. The website doesn't do the home justice. Beautiful!! Looking forward to returning! Thanks for everything Ann😃
