About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8), lots of space inside and out.

This 2400 square foot, four bedroom/three bath home is located on a third-of-an-acre plot in the exclusive and beautiful Formosa Gardens Estate, a small gated community so close to Disney you can enjoy fireworks every evening. It is only two miles and less than a ten-minute drive from Disney. The villa has a private screened pool overlooking natural woodlands and two lakes. With free high speed wireless cable internet access. Lots of space inside and outside in this custom built home, not the usual rental where you can walk from roof to roof - come here and breath the space.

Many sub-divisions use the name 'Formosa' in their advertising, but they are not the Formosa Gardens. To see just how close we are to Disney, click on our own website at 'links to more information' below and checkout the map and other options. Many advertise '20 minutes to Disney' etc, but only if there is no traffic and you violate many speed restrictions. We are on the doorstep and only 3 sets of lights away.

The home will accommodate 8 people in great comfort, and features two master bedrooms with queen-size beds and en suite facilities. There are also two further bedrooms with twin beds and a poolside bathroom. All linens and towels are provided. In addition to the 8 beds, baby equipment such as crib high chair and strollers available free of charge. Formal dining room, family room, and sitting room all add to the spacious quality of this executive villa.

We look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in our luxury villa.

About Ken Lowe

We have and still do, travel the world whenever we can and yet Florida for us has always been special. We play golf (Ann is a golfer, I just hack around), love wild-life spotting and walking. Did I mention we like good food? This is our winter home and we take good care of it and welcome you to come and find out what makes it so special. It took us nearly 3 years to find this home with a search criteria of: space, secure, close to Disney, custom built. Not many places in central Florida can boast these features, and when they do, they are not for renting.

Ken Lowe purchased this villa in 2000

Why Ken Lowe chose Kissimmee

We were searching for a family winter home and had a long list of criteria - we wanted custom built house with plenty of space inside and outside, a quiet area and yet close to the parks and golf courses and it took us 2 years to find our ideal - Formosa Gardens Estate. We live there for 3 months in the winter and the home is maintained to a high standard with something being upgraded almost every year.

We have lots of friends in the community because it is not just some large rental home site, it is a living friendy place to take your family and you will be made most welcome.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is walking distance to good international restaurants and a small shopping mall. Within 5 minutes drive you can be at one of ten good golf courses, Disney Theme parks and we have 2 small lakes where you can fish. Take a 15-20 minute drive and you are at the airport and all the other theme parks. Quiet and secure, yet handy for just about everything.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at your villa was just what we needed after a busy week with the grandchildren at Daytona Beach. We enjoyed the heated pool every day, visited with friends we hadn't seen in 25 years, looked at investment property and enjoyed Netflix marathons at night. (I got my husband and sister hooked on House of Cards, so they had two seasons to catch up on!) We had a lovely time and plan on returning in late September if you have an opening.

Private and relaxing villa close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious villa with a great pool area. Very close to local amenities and the 192 for easy access to the theme parks. We had a very enjoyable 8 day stay and would highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful

time in Florida , and a big part of it was having such a nice

place to stay. Upon our arrival, everybody's first words

thru the door were "WOW"!!!. Everyone was quite impressed.

I'll be sure to tell others about your villa and our experience

in it. I give it an A+ !!! Even my wife, who is a tough critic,

said it's the best accommodations we've had.

Car: recommended

Disney is 10 minutes and other theme parks within 30 minutes. Downtown Celebration a few minutes drive away with great walks, cinema complex and good restaurants. Golf courses aplenty with 5-20 minutes drive. Plenty of well known restaurants within walking distance. Fish on one of the three local lakes.

This is a small secure gated community with custom built homes on large lots. So plenty of space an privacy, not your usual rental property where every home is a few feet away.

We are a nice little crossroad and plenty of quick ways to Disney, I4 east and west, nice drives to the beach in the east about 1 hour and the west about 1 hour 20 minutes.

Lots of things to do other than theme parks, renter get our list of top 30 things to do, mostly free.
