Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much, Mike and Susie for being so helpful, we could not have planned this vacation without you.

Everything went according to plan, just as you told us it would.

The Villa was amazing, comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing.

We used your catering team on one evening - they were absolutely superb.

Well done, we will certainly recommend you to future visitors.

Great stay close to the Magic!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 stayed at this house for week in June 2016. The house was better than expected.

Some of the things we loved:

- Plenty of room. We were able to stay together but not be on top of each other.

- Theater room was great, it was like being at the movies!

- Pool and lanai were fabulous and had a great view of the lake.

- Proximity to Disney was awesome; 10-15 minute drive to most parks.

- Owner was very helpful throughout booking process.

- Management company was very accommodating and took care of concerns quickly.

- Very close to restaurants and grocery store.

- Felt secure in gated community.

We would enthusiastically recommend this property to our friends and family.

Parents 82nd and 75th Birthday Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

First time we did an online house rental like this and everyone was so nervous.

Thank you for the rental property, our family reunion of 23 people worked out very well.

I was so stressed over the sleeping arrangements but everyone was able to find their own little space.

The 2 extra beds you provided were perfect and there were so many bathroom no one was ever “stranded”.

The pool, BBQ, theater room and AC was perfect.

Some of the furniture and sofas were little too big for our liking but, it worked out ok.

The management company took care of all our requests on Christmas Eve within 5 hours of my phone call. that was a pleasant surprise.

Beautiful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was a little unsure if this was going to be a great home for us. But everything went smoothly from finding a us this home to all the payments. Even getting our welcome packet. Thanks so much to Mike. The home was beautiful and there is more than enough space in this home. We came to Florida for my cousins wedding and most of us live out of state. It was important that we have a big home to house everyone but still enjoy our vacations. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. Thanks again to the entire TopVillas team for making this easy and painless.

Loved Formosa Gardens 2

  • 5 of 5

The villa was 'Out of this World' in every way. The standard was 5* with ever comfort imaginable. The children enjoyed the pool, cinema and pool table. The adults enjoyed the luxury and space.

The villa was ideally located within easy reach of all the major parks and quirky towns like Celebration. Also close to shops and restaurants. All in all a wonderfull holiday destination.

COCHRANE Alberta Canada


  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this beautiful home and it was wonderful. Excellent size every amenity you would need for the comforts of home. Mike was always helpful and fast at responding to all my questions. We had more than enough room that everyone could have their own privacy when they needed some quiet time. Pool was great for the kids and adults and when we needed extra towels for our large group Mike arranged for someone to bring them over right away. Movie room was awesome and so was the huge outdoor pool area with the kids water slide. Thanks Mike we will definitely be visiting your beautiful home again.

We have to thank Mike and Susie for letting us stay in their beautiful property.

From the initial inquiry through the booking process and our ultimate stay, they have been nothing but professional and courteous throughout.

The property is absolutely stunning and in the only location we return to year after year,

it is within minutes of a vast variety of good quality restaurants and shops and without doubt Formosa Gardens has the easiest access to all the attractions.

We had extended family join us, during our stay and although there were 18 of us, we never felt crowded, everyone loved the summer kitchen and pool area, the best we have ever seen.

The property was very clean and very well equipped, we had to call out the management on one occasion for a faulty door lock(low battery) they were extremely quick and very friendly.

We would recommend this property to anyone, it really is the best we have ever stayed in and look forward to our return.
