We were fortunate enough to stay in this beautiful property for my Grandparents large family reunion. There were 18 of us, from teenagers to 85 year olds, everything about this property was exactly as described, infact it was much better than the description. We spent many hours in the outside summer kitchen and the totally private pool area was the best we have ever experienced. The inside was very clean and exceptionally well equipped, everyone had their own space and we never felt crowded. I would recommend this property to anyone and have already booked again for 2015.

Shame it's not been looked after..
Shame it's not been looked after..
A group of us stayed here in November we had all travelled out for mine and my now wife's wedding.. The house is of a nice size and great location, but I think it's about time for a deep clean.. The photos on this website and others are taken when it was new it's a very different story now.. (We have lots of pics) We arrived to snapped toilet seats, holes in walls, general dirt up walls, assuming the cleaner is short the layer of dust on top of the fridge... Woah!! The air con ducts are full of dust!! The curtain going out to the pool area isn't just dirty it's filthy!!! Broken bed posts, abused bedside tables, these are just a handful of things... But the most unforgivable, broken glass round the pool from previous guests. So I urge the owner if they read this to shut it down for a couple of weeks and have a painting and cleaning vaction.

Manager response: Thank you very much for your feedback, however I am a little shocked as the house had a complete refurbishment less than 18 months ago and the photos are only 12 months old. The property is cleaned on a weekly basis and I personally regularly visit the property to make sure everything is in order and continuously update the home. I have however made sure the property has had a recent deep clean and can assure you that all issues mentioned have been rectified.
Beautiful Home - Rough Start . . .
Beautiful Home - Rough Start . . .
We were very excited about our vacation to Disney and the vacation home. Upon our arrival we found a beautiful home inside and out. However, we were very disappointed to find that everything was not in working order in the rental. Items that were not working: 1) Movie theater - projector bulb was not replaced until Wednesday evening - more than 1/2 of vacation was over. The repairman from the management company said "these bulbs go out all the time", so wasn't there a back-up supply of bulbs. 2) Dishwasher - wouldn’t drain 3) Computer & Wi-Fi (never worked) 4) Had problems with showers – had to call for instructions 5) No washcloths - had to buy 6) Exhaust fan in summer kitchen not working properly. We were "smoked out" of the kitchen. 7) Irons not working – 1 was replaced 8) Some bedroom TVs not working 9) Summer kitchen freezer not working 10) Had to call pest control (cockroaches). When owner was notified of the issues he negated them, saying that the management company advised him the only issue was the theatre room and that he didn't expect to receive this sort of correspondence, namely me expressing my "disappointment", because this was "a beautiful property" and considering the fact that he let us bring our dog, that we shouldn’t be complaining. (Note: our dog is a 7 pound, 10 year old, house-trained miniature pinscher.) I replied to the owner that no one was disputing how beautiful the home was. We merely wanted to let him know that his management company clearly had misinformed him of issues in the home and/or were not checking to make sure everything was in working order. I also let him know that the fact that "he let us bring our dog", as he put it, did not mean that we should not complain about deficiencies in the home. We were very disappointed that we did not get as much as an apology and a "we'll get right on these issues". This is just a "buyers beware" note . . . The home is absolutely beautiful inside and out and is in a great location. With that being said, the owner/management needs to make sure everything is working BEFORE tenant arrives! It is truly unfortunate that the owner chose to respond so defensively. Hopefully this review will make him aware of these issues and he will address them so that future renters will have smooth sailing. - The Douglas Family, Maryland (6/2013)

Manager response: We always welcome all comments regarding our property's, whether positive or negative. However, in this instance the Management Company only found the Theatre movie projector light had blown(these last approx 4 years) and one iron missing, everything else was in perfect working order. These two items were attended to as soon as was practically possible. We assure you, we constantly strive to maintain the best possible service to our guests.
The Perfect Villa
The Perfect Villa
We had to take the time to thank the owners for all the effort he and his wife put into making this villa a perfect vacation home. I have stayed in the Formosa Garden area for 4 years and never had the experience my family had in this Villa! The furnishings were top quality. The T.Vs were all modern and easy to use. It made it difficult to leave and go visit the local area. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything was exactly like he explained and the few questions we did have were handled immidiatly by the local rental agency. "Jeeves" he calls them. We would love to stay there at our next family reunion. And I DEFINITLY recommend this Villa to anyone looking to spoil themselves with a top quality vacation home,

Thank you, for all your help
Thank you so much, Mike and Susie for being so helpful, we could not have planned this vacation without you. Everything went according to plan, just as you told us it would. The Villa was amazing, comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing. We used your catering team on one evening - they were absolutely superb. Well done, we will certainly recommend you to future visitors.

THE PERFECT FAMILY REUNIONGuest comment entered by manager
THE PERFECT FAMILY REUNION
The Villa was perfect for our Family Reunion, the bedrooms were very spacious and so comfortable, the kitchen and dining area so well equipped, we could not believe the size of the movie theatre and the excellent choice of movies available. Our favourite area of course was the pool and summer kitchen, absolutely stunning with the most amazing outlook over the lake. We only wish we could have stayed longer. This has to be the best location from Disney, only 5 minutes.

We cannot praise Mike and his family highly enough, this villa really was the very best we have ever stayed in. We always spend many weeks deliberating over our vacations, this one was definitely the right choice, everything went to plan, the villa was exactly as described if not better. It was also beautifully maintained and exceptionally clean. Also a big thank you to your management who could not have been more helpful with the concierge service offered. This saved us so much time and expense and introduced us to many options that we were totally unaware of including quality restaurants, VIP Events in Disney, special family fun days etc We will certainly be returning within the next two years.

Please always ask for our help with any special occasion.
We were so pleased with this unbelievable accommodation. It was everything that we expected and more.The pictures posted on your website did not do it justice. Every bedroom was so spacious and comfortable - the pillow top beds in the master sweets were the best we have slept on. The spacious kitchen and open lounge adjoining was ideal for everyone to be in the same room at the same time. We were on a much deserved family vacation and the house had to be perfect - it was. The views from the pool deck overlooking the lake were magnificent! After a day at Disney, the huge pool and summer kitchen were waiting for us, a great way to end a great day. The Kids loved the movie room, we have never experienced anything like this before. It's location to all the theme parks was very convenient and was very easy to get too. We were also thankful for the amazing variety of restaurants and supermarkets within a few minutes of Formosa. Thanks for sharing your home with us!!

Manager response: Thank you, Vicki for your lovely comments. This Villa is undoubtedly the one that pleases all the family it has everything. Its location within 2 miles of Disney and with a huge variety of quality restaurants and supermarkets just around the corner make it the ideal vacation home.
WOW FACTOR 6 Well what can I say, on arrival at Formosa Gardens we were delighted, an absolutely beautiful community. As we drove up outside the Villa, the whole family went WOW. On entry another WOW its huge and beautiful. The kids rushed out to the pool and all you could here were shrieks of delight, WOW, WOW. Then the movie room, we could not get the kids or the adults out of there. 2 more WOWS. This really is the ultimate dream villa, I would recommend it to all ages and for any occassion, we have already rebooked for next year. Kerry and Keith

Manager response: The 9 bedroom Villa has been recently upgraded and as you can see from the photos, it is now one of the most prestigious Villas in Formosa Gardens. The pool area and Summer Kitchen is amazing, we recently had an independent property agent view it for his clients, his comment on the Movie Room was. "This is amazing the largest and most luxurious movie room I have ever seen in a rental property". The whole Villa has been upgraded, with 7 master suites all with their own bathrooms. Beautiful chandeliers and ornate furnishings throughout.
We recently celebrated my Fathers 70th Birthday, in this Villa, with a big family Reunion. This Villa was amazing, with everything you could possibly want from a rental property, it had huge living areas and nine full size bedrooms. The pool was the largest I have seen, the kids loved it, who needs Disney, when you can stay somewhere like this. It is also in an excellent location, close to many excellent restaurants. The Management Company were also extremely helpful. Will certainly return next time we are over.
