You may be looking at those 5 stars and thinking that this is a fake review. Was everything perfect? Nope. There were 5 star experiences in 5 categories and nothing big enough to detract from that. Apparently I get 5% off next time from Top Villas for doing a review, but I wasn't influenced in terms of the content. I was thinking of doing one anyway, and don't believe is doing it half-baked, so... Context. We had a party of 9 staying for 12 days coming from 2 different countries. We had room to spare. We spent minimal time at the house and didn't get to use all of the facilities. We would next time. We had all sons aged 9 to 18. Let's break down those scores... Facilities. You can read the property description and it's all true. There are 7 bedrooms. 3 are gigantic (and could sleep all 14 people in just one of them), 2 are big and 2 are of a decent size. 5 have en-suites and the other 2 each have a bathroom right next to them. Note that the ground master suite is open plan (read door-less) into the huge bathroom where the large tub and walk-in shower are located, though the door to the bedroom locks and the toilet is in a locking side room. The pool is excellent. We didn't have time for the outdoor kitchen, outdoor pool table, gym, dining table or a long sit in front of the huge screen. We did use the excellent laundry facilities. We are lucky enough to have a 108" projected screen at home so the novelty wasn't there but it's a great thing for younger kids. Be sure to read the house manual, which needs a few small updates. There's a lot of technology and buttons which I love. The gaming facilities were kindly upgraded at our request too! See below. The kids would have happily spent a few more hours in the pool. Comfort. There was plenty of space to sit, when we were there. If we'd been there 3 weeks we probably would not have sat on every possible seat. The beds and bedding were all comfortable. Having towels for the bathrooms and seperately for the pool was excellent! There were plenty of requests to turn on the jet in the hot tub pool. A Xmas tree was there to greet us which was an unexpected surprise. There's a crazy amount of space to relax. The whole home is air conditioned to whatever level we wanted. None of those messages saying you can't go below a certain temperature. There are 3 sets of controls to cover 3 areas of the home. Cleanliness. We've stayed in rented homes were the cleaning was questionable. This place was totally clean. The bedding was clean. The towels were clean. Service. Did I mention the Xmas tree being in place, decorated and lit before we arrived? Also, we were in contact with the owners before arriving and enquired about the game systems. They didn't have the system our family uses, but happily offered to get one! There were a few late night tournaments enjoyed as a result. That personal touch creates a lot of high ratings capital and a lot of great holiday memories. Top Villas managed all the questions thrown at them with poise. Thanks specifically go to Elodie. Value. The price was good for the size, location and capability of the property. Top villas also price-matched the same property listed slightly lower somewhat else. That price-matching policy is real. There's nothing of this standard this close to Disney outside of Formosa Gardens that I know of. The facilities at the house were great, even if we didn't have the time to use them all. What could be improved? My only quibble with Top Villas is they charge a fee for credit card processing, but I imagine there wouldn't be must left for them if they didn't. I just don't know if they are passing on the exact Visa/MC/Amex fee. It used to be a contractual requirement of accepting those cards that you couldn't surcharge more than the fee. We had a great time, with thanks to great owners and had no need to contact the local management company. I would completely recommend this property to others looking for an extremely comfortable and well equipped property. The next time we are in Florida, I will definitely be looking at this property again, or another one close by owned by the same people, aiming to spent more time in the house. I would recommend Top Villas for arranging a stay in such a property and would look to their list of other Formosa Gardens properties if these aren't available.
Our family of 14 spent 9 nights at this beautiful home. The highlight is the swimming pool and the outside area. We spent most of our time outside swimming & playing pool & ping pong. The pool is bigger than most pools and the heater worked great. The outdoor bar-b-que area is perfect with a huge grill, sink, and lots of counter space. The home has everything and more! There are two washers and dryers, tons of towels, and the beds are very comfortable. The theater room is awesome, but can be a challenge for people who are not tech savey. Luckily they have a book that explains how to operate everything. I am stretching to find anything negative to say about the home....the only thing that could be improved on is the refrigerator. It is quite small for the amount of people & size of the home. HOWEVER, you have a small refrigerator in the theater room and two outside that can hold beverages and other small items, so it worked out just fine. We visit Florida regularly and have stayed in other homes, this home was perfect! Pack your bags.....
We really enjoyed our stay. Everything We could ever imagine was there. We will definitely return and recommend it to friends.
