About the area

Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens is one of the closest subdivisions to disney situated just off the 192 with numerous restaurants and a Winn Dixie supermarket within a mile. A lovely area to stay, 7 mins to disney, 15 mins to seaworld, 10 mins to Walmart and shopping! You can see and hear the fireworks at Disney from the front step thats how close the magic really is. Enjoy!

“Beautiful vacation home”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2016

The house was everytjing one could hope for, very close to attractions and dining. The layout was fantastic for 11 of us and the pool was so clean, relaxing and warm. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone looking in the Disney area.

Owner's reply: Thank you Lynn, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay.

“Disney World Trip”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2016

We enjoyed our stay in Florida, the house was big and lots of room for everyone. The pool was a little cold, the pool man said there was a whole in the pump and he had to keep a hose with cold water running in the pool at all time so the pump would not burn up until it gets fixed. Hopefully soon so the next family can enjoy a warmer pool. On our second day, the first day we did laundry, we went to dry our clothes and opened the door to the laundry room and realized the dryer hose was not attached to the dryer, and two of the bathrooms plug ins did not work and could not use the blow dryers in those bathrooms. Management came that day and fixed both of those problems. Yes, we would stay again. Nice location for Disney World and nice house, little dated, but nice. Thank you Matt for the use of your home.

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2016

We just had a perfect vacation largely in part to our perfect choice of a home base. Only 5 of us stayed and we had so much room. The kids didn't want to leave and asked if we ever came back to Disney if we could book this home again. And if we do, we definitely will. It was chilly during our visit and the management company was extremely attentive to helping us maintain the pool temperature so our northern New England children could enjoy it. We saved tons of money by being able to grocery shop and eating at home instead of the parks. The kitchen was perfectly equipped. Only one thing to caution about and only word to the wise, certainly not a complaint... The dryer cannot handle a full load of laundry. Not even half a load. Plan accordingly, we spent our entire last day waiting for the dryer to be done and wouldn't have started laundry if we had known. All in all, we had a great stay, for a great price, no hidden costs, everything that is typically charged as extra in other Florida vacation homes is included with this one... Portacrib, high chair, stroller, pool heart, barbecue grill... All included... Add on attentive owners and management staff and it was everything we needed to make this our home away from home.

Owner's reply: Thank you Dylan, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay, I will speak to the management company about the dryer as the duct may need cleaning, We too mainly eat at home when we visit and this is one of the reasons why we found this area our favourite when we were looking at houses to buy, it is so convenient to the parks that you can come home for lunch and a cool swim and then return to the parks for the evening when it is not so busy if you have the energy!

“no need to look no further”

Review: Matthew I would like to thank you for letting us enjoy your home, we had 6 adults and 3 children stay with us and there was so much room, we enjoyed the grill and lounge chairs in the sun by the pool when we were not out and about at the parks our shopping. None of the major parks were no more than a 20 minute drive, so we were able to make the most of our vacation by still getting back early enough to still enjoy the pool in the evening. The shopping was extremely close and tons of restaurants to choose from ( Joe's crab shack was our favorite) go for happy hour I recommend trying the hurricane category 5 cocktail! We had several grocery stores to choose from for our barbecue's and several souvenir shops to get our best value and quality, if you want that resort feel without compromising your privacy this is the place, thank you again, and we look forward to booking again for our next Florida Vacation

“Wonderful home for family!”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2014

This was a great place to stay with my family. The benefit was being close to Disney World only 5 to 10 minutes to the gate; it is also only 20 minutes away from Sea World and Universal Studios. The home was exactly as listed on the site. It was also very easy working with the owner Matt, who was very helpful and responsive to all my questions. All of my family was extremely pleased with the accommodations and naturally they all want to come back to the villa. Yes, I would definitely recommend this villa to my friends. The pool was perfect as my grandchildren will tell you. The home is well managed and taken care of. We did cook a number of meals while we were at the villa which had all of the necessary cooking utensils. I do recommend Super Target which is near buy for your shopping needs; their prices were more reasonable. We also liked the security of the villa which had a alarm system. When I am back in Florida with my family I will definitely be staying at this villa.

Owner's reply: Thank you Albin, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay,

“Pam”

Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed at this house with our family and extended family. It was a warm inviting home filled with all the amenities anyone could have asked for. The house and pool or enjoyable and being on the lake seeing the sunrise in the morning and sunset was just breathtaking

Owner's reply: Thank you Pam, It is nice to here that you enjoyed the house as much as we do. We have just returned from the House ourselves this week and have upgraded a few things such as the Pool furniture, and replaced the BBQ with a new 4 Burner Stainless one, as well as catching up on some general maintenance,

“Excellent location and lovely owners”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2014

We chose this house as it was close to the Disney parks, had a pool and had plenty of space. One of my children is autistic and needs his own bedroom so that he can sleep and when awake does not wake up his brothers. This house was pretty perfect and really worked well for us. All my dealings with the owners were easy and they were incredibly helpful. We had a great time and are now looking forward to trying to plan our next Disney break.

Owner's reply: Thank you Allison, it is so nice to here that you enjoyed your stay and I hope that you will stay with us sometime again in the future.

“Perfect holiday”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

We stayed for 2 weeks over Easter. Everything regarding the house was as promised and we really enjoyed our stay. The pool area was great and the house is very comfortable and spacious. We were 8 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for everybody. The communication with Matt before and after the trip was easy and he answered all of our questions in a timely manner, making this holiday much easier. I highly recommend this place and hope to return someday! Best regards, DJ

“Excellant Property for a Large Group”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2013

Two families including 12 adults and 2 children stayed in this property and there was plenty of room for everyone. The property was clean and as expected. The location was perfect for us because it was a short drive to attractions and located in a quite community. I would rent this place again if I need a large place for an Orlando vacation.

Owner's reply: Thank you Al, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay,

“Nice Villa - Very Good location”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

Very nice and big villa. Location is perfect, very close to all Disney parks and very convenient to all Orlando attractions. Very quiet suroundings and the villa is also perfect to relax near the swimming pool. A lot of restaurants nearby. Very well furnished, even though cooking utensils limited (but was not a problem for us a we were only four people). I would definitely stay here again. Patrick

Hello Matt & Lisa, It was a joy renting your home for our family vacation. We actually had 2 properties a few homes down and the family had a blast.

Hi Matthew / Lisa Sadly our stay in Orlando is nearly at an end. We have had a fantastic time and the Villa is absolutely superb. We couldn't have wished for better accommodation.
