About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Emperor’s Oasis Villa is located in the prestigious Formosa Gardens Estates. Just two minutes from route 192W, this charming, gated and walled community is located only two miles from Disney’s World Drive and a few minutes drive to a grocery store, pharmacy, medical clinic, restaurants and shops.

Located on a quiet cul de sac, our villa sits on a spacious 1/3 acre lot with manicured lawns. Enjoy relaxing and sunning yourself in our comfortable lounge chairs on the screened pool deck. For serious sunbathers, outside of the pool area, we have an additional 300 square feet of sundeck which receives unobstructed sun all day from all directions. There is nothing like a dip in our large pool or relaxing your tired muscles in the built-in spa (pool/spa heat free) after a long day at the parks. You’ll enjoy the lanai with overhead fan and chairs to relax in plus a table for outdoor dining. Don’t forget to fire up the gas grill for some delicious barbecue. There are outside lights to illuminate the home’s front yard and back yard at night. Enjoy the illuminated pool deck for swimming and entertaining. The pool also has fiber optic lighting for a colorful light show. All doors leading from the house to the pool are equipped with child safe alarms.

Our fully air conditioned villa offers four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2600 square feet. Master bedroom one has a king-size bed and a private (en-suite) bathroom with double vanity (two wash basins), large soaking tub, walk-in shower and separate wc. Walk directly out from this bedroom onto the lanai. Master bedroom two has a king-size bed with a private (en-suite) bathroom with a walk-in shower. Our custom designed décor has the adventurer in mind so there are touches of safaris and an oasis throughout. A bedroom with two single beds (the monkey room) has a large painted mural of the animal kingdom’s tree of life and the walls show swinging monkeys. A border of panda bears decorates another bedroom with two single beds. The hall bathroom, which has a tub with overhead shower, also has a door which opens onto the lanai.

Our den/sitting room is a comfortable place to sit and relax. The doors can be closed for privacy and the sofa converts into a queen size bed.

The family room is also a comfortable, relaxing place to sit, chat or watch TV. There are French doors leading out to the lanai. The room is open to the breakfast nook and breakfast bar which adjoin the kitchen.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size gas range with oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer. There is also a blender, toaster, electric kettle and coffee maker. The cupboards are stocked with dishes, glassware, cups, cooking pots and pans etc. A doorway from the kitchen leads to the formal dining room.

There are large screen TVs with DVD players in the family room and the game room. There are flat screen TVs in all the bedrooms and cable throughout the house. The game room TV is setup with NetFlix for your choice of movies and tv shows. We also have wi-fi high speed internet (bring your own lap top) and a phone with free local calling and free long distance to the U.S. and Canada.

The laundry room is equipped with a washer and a dryer. This is so convenient, especially when traveling with children, because you can pack fewer clothes. There is an ironing board and iron available as well.

For the wee one in the family we have a high chair, a stroller, and a portable crib/cot.

Our climate controlled games room features a 50” TV with Blu-Ray player, Wii console with games, video arcade game with 50 classic video games, foosball (table football/soccer) table, large air hockey table with lights and electronic scoring, children’s play table and chairs, train table, books, toys, board games, VCR/DVD library and a couch with two recliners. Simba (the Lion King) as a cub and Mickey with his friends on safari will watch over you from murals on the wall.

For the comfort of all of our guests, this is a non-smoking home and pets are not allowed.

Why The Owner chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

We fell in love with Formosa Gardens when we stayed in a lovely villa here on our first trip to Florida with our children and grandchildren in June of 2009. We returned two months later and after looking at fifty houses in the immediate area chose this gem in Formosa Gardens. The homes are lovely and the lots are large.

This is the place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa several times. We have always had the best experience here. It is very clean and peaceful. The game room is very well utilized by our kids. So much for them to do there. The pool is our favorite place. After a long day of crowds and commotion at the parks, it is awesome to be able to get some dinner cooking in the oven, while hanging out in the pool and relaxing. You can't beat this house. It is in a beautiful, relaxing neighborhood. A great location, close to the parks, grocery stores, and souvenirs stores. Everything you need is here. We love having a washer and dryer in the house. Big spacious rooms. You can't go wrong with this villa.

Perfect villa and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa as it looked beautiful on the website and in our preferred location to Disney. We have stayed in several estates around this area and Formosa Gardens is by far the best.

The estate itself is so clean/tidy and peaceful.

The villa was spotless on arrival and entry/directions from Carolyn were great.

The air conditioned fully converted games room was well utilised by my 5yr old. It was a great space and the Wii/games and huge cable TV were great.

Ann that manages the villa was very helpful and all communication with Carolyn (owner) prior to our arrival was very timely.

The closeness to Disney, shopping, restaurants is great .. all within a few minutes.

The pool area was again spotless and very inviting for the lazy afternoons by the pool. Plenty seating, pool toys etc.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and hope to return one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Pamela. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as our guests. We want our villa to be comfortable and enjoyable for all of our guests and above all clean. Formosa Gardens Estates is the perfect location because it is so close to Disney and it is also easy to travel to other attractions from there. Our large lot provides more space between villas so our guests can have peace and privacy.

The perfect base to do Disney, Sea World, LegoLand, NASA and still feel rested

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this house over Thanksgiving. We hit multiple parks and even the children had a hard time deciding which was better, this beautiful, well-appointed home with pool and hot tub and game room or the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom! Makes it easy for everyone to have a good time and get rest, too. We were very comfortable with two families of two children each, more than enough space for everyone, and good pool safety features (door alarm, etc.). Restaurants and grocery stores, as well as fun non-park activities, are unbelievably close by. Also, a very responsive property manager who made us feel welcome, answered our questions when we called, and even mailed us a special sleeping friend who got left behind! We are hoping to return soon and recommend it to anyone!

Emperors' Oasis is an exceptional villa - this was our 6th visit to this area of Orlando and this was certainly the best villa in which we have stayed. The facilities in the villa are excellent and the condition of the villa is fantastic.

In addition, dealing with Carolyn was a real pleasure and having Ann (the property manager) living locally was also a real plus.

I would strongly recommend this villa!

First class

  • 5 of 5

Everything was even better than expected. This villa is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need.The pool and hot tube are a dream.

This is living in first class. Also Carolyn is a delight to deal with,Thanks again for all your help.

Can't comment on the the local management team as I didn't have any issues, but I have to mention the poolman, who was sooooo helpful with our trips to Disney. Please pass on our thanks.

For those with small children there are two cots, a high chair and two strollers available.

Formosa gardens is beautiful and very close to everything.

Will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We are so fortunate to have such lovely guests. Reggie, who does our pool and yard, is a wonderful person and also works at the Magic Kingdom so he is very helpful when our guests are lucky enough to see him.

Emperors Oasis is wonderful! It is even better than the pictures. It is beautiful as well as comfortable and it was wonderfully clean. We have stayed in Kissimmee rentals 10 times as well as at 6 other vacation rentals in other states. This was far and away the best!

Formosa Gardens is a lovely gated community and it is nice that the houses are not as close together as in most neighborhoods. Very peaceful and relaxing. Being so close to Disney, we could come back to the house for a swim and ameal then return to Disney later for the fireworks. It is an easy drive to Universal and Sea World.

We all enjoyed the pool and relaxing on the lanai. The kids really enjoyed the game room while the adults had a peaceful break. Then it was time for an air hockey challenge.

The owner is very helpful and answered all of our many questions. The property manager lives on the next street. She is very responsive and even showed us how to work the remote when we messed it up.

Emperors Oasis made a great vacation even better! We will be back.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed our home. We want a stay at our home to make a fun vacation even better. There is nothing better after a day at Disney to make the short drive back to the house then cool off in the pool before barbecuing on the grill and eating poolside.
