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.

                        This is a wonderful house for a family reunion, even with my 88 year old mother in a wheelchair! One of the master bathrooms has hand rails to help at the toilet and in the shower. The room has wide doors to easily allow wheelchair entry. The owner has a ramp to the front door and a ramp to the backyard pool area. The house has many great amenities that kept a group of 16 fully entertained: the pool, spa, games room, large great room with a lot of seating for conversations, and BBQ. It is conveniently located just south of Disney World and has a near-by market and pizza place. The management company quickly responded to minor problems with the house, once they were there within 30 minutes! We truly enjoyed our stay at the house.

                        For our third annual "Family Girls' Trip" we were looking for a place 16 of us could stay together in a city with a variety of activities and an airport. The Waters Edge in Orlando was perfect! Booking the house was easy, we worked directly with the owner. We liked the keypad system for the front door - no need to worry about who has the key. The pool alarm system took us awhile to remember but was great since we had three toddlers with us. With four large bedrooms (three with private baths) on the first floor, and three more bedrooms and baths on the second floor, everyone had a comfortable, spacious, beautifully decorated bedroom. The main living area was large enough for us all to gather in one place for dining and visiting. Our favorite spot, though, was the patio and pool area. With the pool heated, we were able to swim in March, and we also used the hot tub. The house sits on a small lake, so the view from the pool area was pretty and relaxing. We enjoyed eating dinners outside, too. Disney World, Sea World, Downtown Disney, outlet malls and other shopping are just a few of the attractions that are within a half hours drive from the house. We enjoyed the house so much, though, we spent most of our time together there. If we ever return to Orlando as a large group, we would definitely consider staying at The Waters Edge.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing.

                        Loved our trip to Orlando, especially staying at this fine property. We were a large family group, but somehow anyone who wanted some quiet and private space could find it. The layout of the house worked so well for us; grandparents had quiet spots to sleep, teens could sleep in, little kids could be noisy and the moms and dads could read! The pool area is quite lovely, backing onto a lake with no neighbours to look at. Very nice! We kept the adults downstairs in the 4 masters (one is a queen room with a bathroom right out side, the other 3 are kings with ensuites) and put the kids upstairs (2 bedrooms with twin beds and one with 2 sets of bunks - 2 bathrooms upstairs). I love staying places where my kids do not have to share a bed. They sleep better and there is no complaining! We chose not to do parks (save one day at Universal) but the location! We were about 20 max to everywhere we'd want to go: parks, shopping, groceries, airport. Super Target and Publix are less than 10 min away. The kids loved the games room, the hot tub got a lot of use too. We did find that the coloured pool lights were quite dim but that's really minor. Also, remember to push the button before opening the door or the pool alarm will go off. It took a few of us a day or so to remember that one! We really appreciated the large amount of plates and cups, the laundry room and the speed with which our concerns were dealt with (one of the buttons for the pool alarm was not working upon arrival, but was quickly fixed the next day). Thanks again, Alan!

                        Our family of 9 adults and 5 kids stayed here in early January. It was everything that was promised and more. We enjoyed the property immensely and would stay here again in a heartbeat. We had master bedrooms and baths for the four married couples and enough rooms and beds for everyone else. It is about as close to Disney as you can get without being on property. The pool and hot tub were fantastic. We hated to leave and everyone want to come back.

                        13 Family members, 6 adults & 7 kids, rented this home over new years to see our college team play in the Citrus bowl. It exceeded all of our needs, and had plenty of space for everyone. Great game room in the garage. Wonderful pool and hot tub. Outlet malls were close for shopping. I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling with a large family or group to Disney or the greater Orlando area.

                        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.

                        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

                        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!!

                        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 :-).

                      About the owner: The photo is of Joye and I on Vacation in Sorrento Italy, we went to attend her neices wedding, Joye was made redundant from her job, at the Bank of America, where she had worked for 21 years, as a Compliance Officer, in the UK Branch. I, had spent 20 Years in the Sign Trade, and after I had had two Heart Attacks, an By-Pass and some and other Medical Conditions, we both decided now was the time to Retire. we both loved to travel, so that was an ideal time to get out and see the world.

                      Why the Owner Chose Celebration:
                      When you drive into Formosa Gardens, you will answer that question yourself, it is just so different from anything around, the Disney area, and the homes are so big and in there own grounds.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Award Winning Villa - Voted the Best Kissimmee Vacation Rental 2011-2012 We have just about everything in the place, the Fans, The Massage Chairs, the Lake, and that Hollywood Pool.
