Description of the Kissimmee vacation villa rental
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' x 20' heated "Hollywood" Style designer-pool,with its on fibre optic light show, changing the colour of the water every 30 seconds on a huge 60’x 54’ south-facing deck, so you can soak up the sun all day, or relax in our enormous 10-person hot-tub, with your friends and family, while watching the magnificent sunset over Star Lake, cool drink in hand, after your grueling day at Disney.

If the heat gets you, relax in the air-conditioned splendour of the villa, and the family room with its gigantic, ceiling hung Plasma T.V. screen with Bose 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 PS-2 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 open your Laptop, and use our Wi-Fi enabled Internet, or why not try your luck, Fishing in our Lake with our Fishing Rods.

When it’s time for bed the cosseting continues, with our sumptuous King pillow-top mattresses in the three masters and the Queen, believe me you just won’t want to get out of these things, and why should you, especially with TV/DVD/VCR 27"/LCD 37" combos in the masters, and 20" TV/DVD combos in all other bedrooms, with over 200 hundred satelitte 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 ¼ acre lot, assuring you of the privacy that you deserve. If you don't 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 an stunning Oriental theme, and no expense has been spared on this seven-bedroom six-bathroom home.

Fantastic Place to stay

May 3, 2011

We stayed for 11 nights at the Waters Edge in March 2011. Its our second visit to Orlando, and our second stay at this villa. Although my wife and I had stayed here before, we had friends with us this time which really added to the magic of staying in such a fantastic place.

August 2012
Dear Alan,
I wanted to thank you very much for the use of your Villa during the last couple of weeks. My family and I had an absolutely wonderful time together there and without exception were all very impressed by the very high standard of décor, presentation and cleanliness throughout.. The location is also very attractive.

Once again many thanks for all your help with this and look forward to receiving refund of the initial deposit paid, together an opportunity of possibly renting this property again sometime during the next two to three years or so.

Kind regards

Kevin

Guest Review July 2012

Thanks Alan, our stay was fantastic. The house was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and everything was as you said. Also, you made the trip more than we thought it could be for the kids, cant thank you enough. Lesson learned from Alan Godfrey this year was that you cant beat a family vacation with everyone under one roof and a private pool. You were more than patient walking me thru the steps to renting online, more than fair and in fact went overboard when helping me correct a mistake i made, and as much as Universal Studios made the trip fun for the kids, the icing on the cake was your home. My prayer was that we didnt do anything in our stay to disrespect you, Mrs. Joye, your home or the neighbors. Again a sincere THANKS for everything and God Bless!

Great House, Great Locations, Great Idea

I have just returned from taking 11 teenagers to a tournament in Orlando. We usually stay in hotels. This was my first time to rent a home. First of all, Alan is very helpful. He called me a couple of times to answer questions. The house is in a great location. Close to I-4 which takes you to Disney, Universal and ESPN Sports complex. The neighborhood and home are very secure. The house is large and roomy. My group had plenty of room to spread out. The pool area, game room, den and kitchens areas are very nice for the group to gather. It was very helpful having a laundry room in the house and not down the hall or down the street. There are tons of restaurants very close to the house as well as a Wind Dixie at the end of the street. The house was very nice and clean. If I ever take a group back to Orlando, I will be calling Alan again.

Great place for a large group and close to Disney!

We rented this place for a combination wedding and family reunion and there were 14 adults and 5 kids (under 6). Plenty of room to spread out and the pool area is really fantastic with plenty of seating, tables, etc! Suggest you call ahead day of arrival (I wish we had) because the place was not ready for us at our 5PM check-in. Somehow they expected us the next day! I will say that the mgmt office was very responsive and had cleaning staff and TV tech (the main TV was inoperable) at the office and all was made ready (but not until about 7PM for 5PM check-in). Other than that "glitch", the house was "as advertised" and provided comfortable accommodations for our large family group, in a nice setting.

Owner response:I am sorry this happened, its the first time it has, and was due to a simple mix up by the Cleaning Crew, on the dates, but we sorted it as soon as possible, and Jim had the Home a couple of hours late.

Guest Review from - Jan 4, 2012 Alan was very helpful and organized as we made arrangements to rent his home. The home is in good condition and everything worked! The pool was great, however the hot tub could have been a bit warmer. Everyone stated that the beds were very comfortable and we would not hesitate to rent this home again if the occasion to need this large a home again arises.

What a wonderful place to relax and from which to explore Orlando. Our team had a fantastic time. The location is great and the house is perfect.

My family of 16 spent the best week ever during Thanksgiving week at The Waters Edge. We all had a great time at such a remarkable home. Everything you would need is there or just minutes from there. There was so much space for all with 7 bdrms & 6 baths, a large kitchen, the pool & hot tub, the lake, fishing & game room!! This home is everything it is advertised to be, PLUS. I went out & purchased a sterno for extra coffee, there is an electric on in kitchen, We didn't have an infant but there is a crib, stroller,& whatever you need for one. Just talk to Alan & ask him all the "EXTRAS" in the home before you pack!! This place can save you so much money instead of staying at a hotel. It was so much fun cooking, or sandwiches or grilling by the pool each evening. No need to worry about rental online. It was so easy & Alan was helpful in everyway. My family had a wonderful time & I hope my Grandkids will always remember this special week. Thanks to the Godfrey's for such a great time.

I recently stayed at the villa and I have to say it was absolutely perfect.. we had 15 .. yes 15 people there, 12 adults and 3 kids and we had plenty of space. The view at the back was lovely in the evenings and you can spot some interesting birds around the lake - a real treat. The location is fantastic, easy to get to everything. The villa itself has everything you could need and the games room was a real treat.. we had pool tournaments in the evenings and that was great fun. We all travelled from Ireland, I dealt with alan directly and we spoke on the phone a few times - really genuine and nice people. If you have any reservations about this place dont, you couldnt get better than this. Go for it - you will love it!

We had a group of 16 friends and family from all over the country (Minnesota down to Georgia) head down for the Disney Marathon weekend. The place was fantastic and fit all of our needs - only one "negative" thing to comment on (and it really wasn't THAT bad) - the 4th "master" bedroom actually doesn't have a bedroom that connects to the bedroom - in order to use it you have to walk in a short hallway that connects to the kitchen/dining area. Other than that, everything was "as advertised" and we would definitely go back. The pool/hot tub felt GREAT - go with the heated option and you won't regret it. We had a couple of maintenance issues, but the management company resolved those expeditiously and completely. Having a grocery store and retaurants nearby was also very nice on the rare occasion we didn't eat in...

Best part of Disney was coming back to the house each night! We had 13 of us staying, all family with middle to teenage children. The house was perfect for location, space, size layout. Alan was excellent to book with and every need was taken care of. I don't think we could have survived Disney without this wonderful sanctuary to return to each evening! Most definately would recommend it for anyone who wants a beautiful home to stay in that is close to everything, with absolutely no hassles or issues from booking to getting damage deposit back. We feel fortunate to have had such successful experience. Thanks so much alan and Joye · By Stacy from Calgary Alberta on 12/4/2010 for a stay in 11/1/2010

Perfect Comfort The Water's Edge was exactly what we expected and more. Owners alan and Joye have a lovely home and were very easy to work with. Alan went so far as speaking with us on the phone to answer any questions and ease any concerns we had about renting a home. We were a group of 16 and we could not have been more comfortable, or have had a better location. In the event of a return trip to the area, it would not be without another stay in this home. Absolutely beautiful! ⢠By Guzneydingerman from Brockton, MA on 8/9/2010 for a stay in 7/1/2010

Wonderful!!! Wonderful house in a great setting on a lake away from it all but very close to the action , Disney Parks, Shopping, Minature Golf, restaurants and so much more!! We saw amazing birds and enjoyed the huge pool with a screened in Lanai! The four master suites were wonderful with the most comfortable beds. The older kids loved the game room and the pool alarm allowed our 3 year old grandson to be safe:) The house is perfect for large families with a huge living room and excellent kitchen. We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave. Renting this house was without worries!

Thank you Alan. My family and I really enjoyed spending the last week in your home. Everything was as stated in the ad. We had everything we needed. We regularly stay at Florida homes and yours was one of the nicest (and largest). You have thought about every need. Very close and convenient to all Disney parks. Pete

Our vacation stay at The Water's Edge during the holidays was wonderful! The most important thing to report is booking with Alan was easy because he is honest, professional and efficient, entry to the house a breeze, and the furnishings so nice that it made accommodation worries non existent. The house easily held the 11 members of two families and friends, aged 18 to 55. After enjoying theme parks, outlet malls, and other Orlando offerings, we came home to talk over our day around the hot tub and heated pool and played a little pool. Our older kids never felt the need to go clubbing with this house! It is located right at Disney, groceries, drug stores and restaurants. After our stay, we will never go back to hotels and will book again for an Orlando vacation! Thanks Alan and Joye!

The house is clean, quiet, spacious, and a fantastic location central to beautiful golf courses and parks. This will actually be our 5th year staying in this house and we could not recommend it more. The owners and management company for this house deliver simply the highest professional experience you will receive. The gated community, quiet setting, beautiful/clean house simply deliver a peaceful solitude to enjoy your vacation with zero worries. Do not hesitate to email me directly if you want a personal recommendation or questions. I live in Boston, Ma. we rent this house each year. Again, Thank You Alan the service and house are excellent and we do appreciate it. See you next year! Joe Gaska

Wow wow wow! Alan we had the best time ever staying in your beautiful villa, we felt we were in the lap of luxury. 11 of us stayed and we had more than enough room for us all. The pool and lanai were out of this world the kids lived in it and could not wait to get back to it after the parks and shopping. The men played poker every evening by the pool, and the games room was more than used. Every thing was catered for, the American washing machines and dryers were brilliant, never ran out of towels etc. My neice was made up to have use of the Wi-Fi and update her friends back home daily, more like make them jealous. We were so central to everything nothing was too far it was ideal. We wanted to stay there forever. We booked with you so many years ago and had such a build up to our holiday the whole family reunion, and we were not dissappointed one bit. You have been brilliant Alan, so helpful with everything we thank you very much. We definately have the Florida bug now and hope that we may return some day if we could stay in your villa again that would be the icing on the cake!

Hi Alan All 13 of us had a fantastic time in your lovely villa. There was everything to accomodate us and the 5 children varying in ages from 4 to 15 from the pool to the games room and TV's in every room. The parks were located not far which meant the kids had time to do the pool (again & again) every night. My son got married when we were there and the rest of the family that were staying in the area had a great day and used the facilities of the house ie bar-b-q The local area has great bars and eating places however we found that the better eating was at International Drive. The shopping we found at the markets was just holiday 'tat' however the shopping outlets were great with great designer discount shops My family would highly recommend your villa or any of the villas in the Formosa Gardens area as they all look of a high standard and are well maintained The only problem we encountered was the oven - we put a pizza in and it took two hours but i believe that this is normal for american style convection cookers!!!! Thanks once again for a lovely holiday in your lovely home Elaine
