"This house was clean. However, the furniture was very uncomfortable to sit on. This included the dining tables, the sofas in the family room and the beds. In particular, the king size bed in the master bedroom was extremely uncomfortable. The mattress was totally compressed because of age and use. We awoke every morning with aching backs which was not a good start to our Disney Park days. The homeowner offered to purchase a new mattress in the middle of our vacation but only at our expense. The mattress should have been replaced long ago for every renter’s comfort."

Check in and check out was very easy. Their dedication to providing the guest the best stay possible was above and beyond. The beds are very comfortable. The layout of the house provides ease of use. The view of the pond behind the house was fantastic. After a day of shopping and parks it was very nice relaxing by the pool looking out over the pond.

"Having stayed in many Floridian villas over the past 25yrs this particular home is probably the best. A perfect location for all the attractions or just to stay by the pool and chill out. The owners Charles & Jo helped make our time in their home so easy, it was like being in a hotel but without all the fuss, which we prefer. The weather didn’t particularly bother us as we had the pool heated for our stay, so still able to make full use of it. Our return flight was unfortunately cancelled but it wasn’t an issue, we were able to stay an extra night for a minimal charge, I would recommend you stay at this vacation home if you get the chance, we will on our next visit to Florida.

"If you are wondering about whether or not to book this one, you need to get on with booking it asap; it’s amazing. It’s sooooo close to Disney (especially Animal Kingdom, to which there’s a shortcut), restaurants and Walmart 5 mins away. Two things really stood out- the quality of the accommodation, with all the little extras like herbs and spices for cooking, tea and coffee etc, water and Pepsi in the fridge, immaculate gardens and amazing pool. There’s so much space in the house, the beds are really comfy and the kitchen has everything you need. The other thing that we especially enjoyed was the lakefront position. The pictures don’t do it enough justice- it’s absolutely beautiful and the wildlife is incredible. We watched a bald eagle fishing there one morning (it wasn’t an osprey- they were there every day!) And if there’s a member of your party who’s into fishing, the largemouth bass are very obliging. Finally, our hosts were so attentive- they couldn’t be better. 10 stars!"

We had the shower knob break during our stay, and I emailed the owner about it. He called me back within five minutes, he told me he will have somebody there the next morning too look at it and possibly fix it and they came and fixed it. I also mentioned the Keurig wasn’t working properly, he apologized and told me that he would have a new one delivered to our porch by 4 and 6 a. m. the next morning and it was there when we woke up!

It was very close to Disney and the Disney theme made the 2 kids rooms and bathrooms fun. The pictures made it seem like there was a little more privacy than what there was, neighboring house were close. The outside areas could use a good power wash cleaning and some structural updates in the front drive. The inside had all the items we needed for making dinners. The interior could use some updating. Also, things like liquid hand soap and dish soap weren't provided, those would have been nice to have."

"Our family consisted of my spouse and our three boys ages 17, 5, and 13. The home is in a great and safe location. The pool area was beautiful. The pond in the back had an alligator in it. If you go out at night (stay a safe distance) and shine a flashlight you can see the red eyes. My boys thought that was great! They also saw it safely from a distance in the day along the shore. Management is friendly and responds quickly to questions. The following recommendations do not affect our stay but are findings compared to previous VRBO stays: Recommend replacing carpet on steps as it does show wear. Compared to other vrbos in the area it does have less extras such as a waffle maker, electric can opener, beach toys, pool floats, blender. These would be nice extras but also this is the only VRBO that leaves soda and water for guests. Overall we loved this home and it felt clean. Thanks for sharing."

"Thanks to the hosts this house was a perfect place exactly as described. This really is not a normal vacation home like we have stayed in before the house is massive, and there are no homes close to each other in this beautiful gated community which is only minutes from Disney. We are coming back to this house again next time thanks very much."

"This truly is a great place and location. We loved relaxing at night in the hot tub in front of the lake. Two weeks in this villa and location wasn't long enough it was hard to leave and go home. We like the fact that as great the villa was, the homeowners are also great at communication and looking after their guests. Definitely coming back when we travel to Florida."

"Thank you to Charles and Joanne they made our visit to Disney really special. The home was more than perfect for our group of four (Two Adults and Two Children) this home can easily sleep the eight people it is listed as. This is a large home and has a dining room and separate kitchen nook, we mainly eat outside next to the pool, because there is a large double story bug screen surrounding the pool area, highly recommend this we stayed in a different home without a bug screen before and got badly bitten by mosquitoes previously. Thanks again can't wait to return."

"This is a beautiful home in a lovely area right next to the Disney Animal Kingdom. Spacious and cozy, with comfortable beds, a nice sized kitchen, and a cozy sitting area. Outstanding pool area. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location is excellent and the house is really big you can't touch the house next door like other locations. The house fits up to eight people very well. Definitely highly recommended the house and the hosts they were excellent."

"For starters, Formosa Gardens Estates is one of, if not the, most prestigious and convenient locations for Disney (5 mins and if you use nearby Sherberth Road you can dodge the traffic) plus the main stretch of the I192, with all its restaurants and shops. Universal Studios is around a 20-40 minute drive (depending on the time of day and traffic). The owners Charles and Joanne are highly communicative and detailed in the booking process, the house itself, and any issues or questions. The house is simply beautiful and freshly renovated. The pool is huge! (you'll struggle to find bigger among the Kissimmee houses), and catches the sun all day. It also backs onto a sizeable lake, presenting a wonderful view with golden colors as the sunsets. The house is big enough for a very large family, or even 2 families, and has every requirement ticked - well-stocked kitchen, BBQ, washing machine, etc. We've stayed in five houses in the area (three of which in Formosa Gardens Estates) and this tops all of them. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house, and cannot wait to return!"

"The whole family had a wonderful stay in this beautiful, obviously much loved and well cared for a family home. Certainly much more impressive than the usual rental property. It is on a huge, totally private plot, overlooking a beautiful natural lake surrounded by Florida Cypress trees draped in Spanish moss. We found it a totally peaceful place to relax after a hectic day in the parks or malls. There is a large screened decking area with plenty of patio furniture and a covered lanai for when we had too much Florida sunshine The front verandah was soon nicknamed " mum's g and t porch " as her favorite spot in the evening sun The interior is very tastefully decorated and furnished and is very clearly a much loved family home as lots of little homely touches The location is perfect as only a few miles from the Parks and we were spoilt for choice with good local restaurants. We particularly liked the nearby little township of Celebration which has many really good restaurants, we would all definitely go back to this house and cannot recommend it highly enough."

"We stayed for 10 days in February but the excellent service started months prior when it was first booked. Charles and Joanne were very helpful via email with quick responses and a wealth of information provided before the trip. The house is a family home and it was perfect for our holiday. 4 of us stayed there and we must have used 1/3 of the total space, it is enormous. Everything we required during our stay we found, two coffee machines, etc. The pool and hot tub were excellent, heated, and perfect after a day in the parks. The location couldn't have been better, around 5-10mins to all of the Disney parks and around 30 mins drive to Universal. The next time we return to Florida we will definitely be booking again."

"We have just returned from a two-week stay and wish we were still there. The home is very impressive and has the wow factor when you pull up to it. There were six of us and there was more than enough space for us. You are able to walk to a few restaurants if you wanted to leave the car at home. The estate is very quiet and peaceful but in an ideal location for all the main attractions. We all loved the pool and spa. The home has everything you need. We have already recommended it to friends and hopefully will return ourselves. Thank you"

It’s the perfect place to relax yourself as a family, the Pool is amazing, perfect for my kids because they would spend the whole day there, they didn’t want to go out to explore because they felt so comfortable in the house, the communication with Charles and Joanne is excellent they are always to respond fast for any question or anything we need, thank you for that, now we have a place to go next time we go to Orlando. One more time thank you for everything and for your hospitality. Granny"
