Overview

About the property

Villa, 7 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 6 Baths, ( Sleeps 22 )

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 gruelling day at Disney.

If the heat gets you, relax in the air-conditioned splendour of the villa, and the family room with its gigantic,55" ceiling hung 4K HD 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.

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.

Alan Raymond Godfrey purchased this villa in 2003

Why Alan Raymond Godfrey chose Kissimmee

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.

Disney Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I took two of our children, their spouses and six grandkids to Disney for 5 days. The house very comfortably accommodated all. All the adults were in king beds, and we could comfortably disperse as appropriate the kids to different rooms. Proximity to Disney was ideal (minutes from the park entrance), and it was great for all to regroup at the house at the end of the day rather than retreat to different hotel rooms.

This home is great for a large family. It has lots of room and the younger ones loved the pool.

  • 4 of 5

The inside of the home was very nice with lots of room for sleeping, eating and relaxing. We appreciated having a high chair, a child's bed, and laundry facilities. The yard and landscaping are okay but they need a little tender loving care.

Excellent stay at Formosa Gardens

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at 'The Water's Edge in August and had a wonderful holiday with our family of 12. The property is more like home from home than a holiday home. The decor is lovely and well stocked with crockery etc. Beds are very comfortable and furnishings are lovely. The children loved the pool and spent many happy hours in it. Theme parks are fairly close so very convenient. It was everything we had hoped for and more and I would highly recommend.

Amazing villa to go with a amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Formosa Gardens many times before. It's a brilliant gated community and on the door step to most activities you'll likely be interested in; such as Disney, Universal, Sea World, Malls etc.

This is a brilliant Villa, overlooking a lake both at front and back. The view from the pool is breathtaking, the pool and jacuzzi brilliant and you'll be able to enjoy the sun all day.

The living room, kitchen and bedrooms are lovely. The interior is extremely spacious. The home Audio Visual setup is great. There are ceiling speakers in all rooms including the pool area, allowing you to plug in your iPhone or PC and enjoy music throughout the villa. The villa was clean and tidy on arrival as you'd expect. I really couldn't recommend this villa highly enough.

Large ,spaceous villa in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two weeks in October at the Water’s Edge ,a very large ,spacious villa set in a beautiful location.We were a party of thirteen and there was more than enough room for everyone , with more bedroom space to spare.The villa itself is set in a stunning location at the edge of the lake , facing South so the pool area gets the sun all day.It is located only a very short drive from Disney and there are plenty of restaraunts and shops at the end of the road from Formosa Gardens.The highlight for us was the large pool and deck area with hot tub ,this has beautiful views over the lake and gets the sun all day ,we could have easily spent the two weeks out there !!!

Great Villa, Great Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Orlando as a group of 14 family members, including 5 young children.

The villa did not disappoint. It was exactly as advertised and it was clear to see why it had such positive reviews. The bedrooms were HUGE with lovely, comfortable beds, lots of storage space for clothes and the en suites were a bonus.

The kitchen provided enough utensils to make basic dishes at home in the evenings after busy days exploring Disney and the lounge was a great place to relax and unwind in the evenings.

The games room went down a treat with the kids (and the adults too), as did the swimming pool!

We all had a great holiday and really enjoyed living in the Villa for 2 weeks - we would definitely stay here again if we returned to Orlando
