Celebration villa description
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 the 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 Cable 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.

Great Disney Vacation
Great Disney Vacation
Great vacation home for our family of 14. We had room to spare. The villa was large and clean. The pool and hot tub were awsome. We were close to all the Disney attractions and Seaworld.The bedrooms were large and quiet. We cooked half of all our meals at home both inside and out on the grill. Well equiped house. Didnt have time to fish in the 2 lakes but the equipment was there. When we go back to Florida we will stay at The Waters Edge.

Owner response: Thank You Larry, for that Review, shame you never got to Fish, I am told there is some "Whoppers" in that Lake
Our party of 13 all enjoyed a great holiday staying at this very comfortable villa. We had 5 children of various ages from 9 to 14 and there was plenty of room for them to enjoy the pool and games room. As the doors outside were alarmed we never had to worry that our disabled granddaughter would get outside on her own as she is partially sighted. There was plenty of comfortable furniture inside and out and the floor aroun the pool was never slippery The local shops were open early and closed late. We can reccomend the red lobster and the Outback Steakhouse for tasty meals. You are very close to all the disney parks ( 10 mins away) with Seaworld and universal about 20mins away. There was always something to watch aroun the lake from ducks to eagles and the raccoons came around in the evening. The boys enjoyed fishing and caught quite a few. The kitchen had everything you required, and we used the barbeque a few times. There is every thing you need for a relaxing holiday and we will reccomend this villa to anyone! Many thanks to all

Owner response: Thank You Robina, for mentioning the Fishing and the Wonderful Wild Life that frequents the Home. Hope to see you back again one day. Alan
This was a very clean, beautiful spacious home!! I took my family of 7 and went with 2 other families of 4 and everyone had their own space! It was wonderful to come back after the parks and hang out by the pool with the kids and still able to throw in a lasagna or burgers on the grill at the same time! I would never stay any place else!!

WOW!!! This was the icing on the cake of our Orlando vacation!!!
WOW!!! This was the icing on the cake of our Orlando vacation!!!
Our group of friends stayed in this stunning 7-bedroom property inside a gated community close to the Disney theme parks from a Thursday-Tuesday in early summer. "The Waters Edge" is a beautiful home with great finishes, a sound system that reaches the whole house, and a beautiful enclosed pool and hot tub. After being out all day it was fantastic to come back and relax in the hot tub. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare dinners so that you don't have to waste money eating out. Alan, the property owner, was always very responsive to email, and answered any questions we had. Upon renting the property we were given a detailed manual with easy instructions for getting into the community and house, and operating the pool and sound system. Everything was easy-breezy! We loved our stay and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! We're hoping to reserve the exact same property next year when we return to Orlando :-).

There are not enough accolades for this property! It is fabulous. Where do I begin? Rooms are spacious and the decoration throughout is noteworthy of photos and googling Chinese culture. You will be spoiled with silk pillows in the living area with multi-recliners and sofas. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, along with all the little things you forget (ex. Scissors, etc). More dishes and pots and pans than in your own kitchen! Each bedroom has it's own TV and walk in shower. Tubs for the 2 larger downstairs. The pool is more than incredible! Have it heated for sure. That and the spa and lighting will make you think you are in heaven! My children and grandsons had a wonderful time and the Godfrey's were a dream to deal with!

Excellent property for family gathering in Disney. We were there at Christmas. The parks were crowded as expected but there was plenty of room in the house for everyone to get some space. Pool and hot tub are a significant part of the holiday and was filled with kidsnwell into the evening. Clean and well managed. Online pictures are true to what you will find. Enjoy.

The house was perfect for our family reunion of 14 people. It is near all the attractions and on the prettiest,most private lot in the subdivision, looking out on the lake. The roads in the area were very quiet which was nice for walking and running. We all enjoyed the pool and eating meals out in the lanai. It was very reassuring to be able to contact Alan so easily regarding every aspect of the rental. There are many extras like towels and baby equipment but we were glad to have the Winn Dixie close for things like kleenex, paper towels, soap,cleaners. All in all a great experience and we would certainly recommend this property.

Brilliant, just brilliant!!!
From start to finish, dealing with Alan was an absolute joy. After initial email communication, Alan was very quick to pick up the phone and call me to discuss any questions I had regarding the booking process. Alan spoke very highly of his Florida home and when we arrived we weren't disappointed. The villa is simply stunning and has absolutely everything you could possibly need. Upon arrival we discovered the BBQ wasn't working so we called the management company. Within 30 minutes a very pleasant man called Pete arrived, checked the BBQ and told us he'd replace it that day. An hour later Pete returned with a brand-new BBQ which was fantastic. Our entire 2 week stay was faultless - I really can't enthuse enough about the villa. There were 11 of us (9 adults and 2 children) but the villa is so large that we really felt at home - never cramped or getting under each other's feet. The location of the villa is also ideal. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and of course, all of the parks are very close and so easy to get to. We hope to return to Orlando within the next few years and when we do I'll definitely be in contact with Alan straight away! This villa made our stay the holiday of a lifetime!!!! Thanks Alan!
