A Stunningly Large South Facing Lakefront Cottage Style 4 Bedroom and 3 Bathroom in Prestigious Secure Gated Community • Newly Decorated • Sleeps up to 8 • 4 bedrooms, 2 are Disney themed and ideal for kids • Amazing location just 5 minutes from Disney World • NEW Stunning Huge Screened Pool with Outdoor loungers and seating plus gas BBQ • Large living room with two sofas and Lazy boy • Smart TV's and Roku in all rooms•  Ample Parking for four vehicles • Freshly Renovated and Decorated. 

'Mickey's Homestead' is designed as a Country Cottage Style Home and located in the prestigious gated community of Formosa Gardens Estates. The home has a beautifully designed exterior and interior, with a relaxing old-fashioned style and quirkiness. Step back in time; this is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing Floridian holiday in a tranquil spot overlooking a natural lake. The house has been freshly decorated, and the Pool and Hot Tub were rebuilt and remodeled, which looks truly stunning. Did we say it is a significantly large property, not your average size anything about this home?  

** New coded keypad entry to the estate doesn't have issues with guards or access control like at other communities**

Not the average run-of-the-mill small four-bedroom home seen in Florida. This house is 3200 SQ Feet in size, about twice the size of your average four-bedroom vacation home. The home is built on a vast 2/3's of an acre of a piece of land, which is also not very common for a Florida vacation home; because of this factor, it enjoys far more outdoor space and privacy than other properties in the area. Hugely private and charming with a vast southeast-facing pool with a hot tub/spa backing onto an actual natural lake, so not overlooked. 

The house has that country charm and a relaxed style; you don't need to think about anything; this is not a Ritz Carlton. It's a great Floridian family cabin / casual; take your slippers off and don't worry about things. Spotlessly clean and tidy the house is designed as a relaxing New England-style country home in the middle of Florida next to Disney with 400Mbps of Internet Access.

Linens and bedding are always of good quality and perfectly clean.

“A Little Bit About Us and Our History”

We recognize that you have a few choices for your vacation rental, so we thought it worthwhile to tell you a bit about us and why we’re different. We’re Charles and Joanna (Jo) - a husband and wife team who own and manage our own homes - we’re not an agency or management company! - and we genuinely try to give you the best experience rental we can.

We’re here to help with any questions, special requests, or general advice… you’ll always deal with us, the property owners.

We started in the short-term vacation rental market in 1999, when we purchased our first property while on honeymoon next to Walt Disney World. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted others to share the experience! Since then, we’ve built a portfolio of exclusive short-term vacation rental properties in Florida and California. Together with a small, handpicked support team, we strive to give all of our guests the perfect vacation experience, backed by a friendly and attentive service.

We have varying professional backgrounds, project management and hospitality talents, and specialist skills in technology. Between our support team and us, we pride ourselves on delivering a high standard of service both in the interactions with people and with the care of our homes.
Rest assured that renting through us will be as smooth and hassle-free as possible - we pride ourselves on giving our guests the same level of service we would expect if we were staying.

The property is fitted with a monitored alarm system and an intercom system throughout the house. All bedrooms and main rooms are fitted with smoke alarms.
All linen is provided including an ample supply of separate towels for the pool deck.
The house is fully heated and air-conditioned for year-round comfort.
