A Little Bit About Us and Our History



We recognize that you have numerous choices when selecting a vacation rental, and we would like to emphasize what sets us apart.

Our journey in the short-term vacation rental market began in 1998 when we purchased our first property near Walt Disney World during our honeymoon. The experience was so incredible that we wanted to share it with others. Since then, we have built a small collection of exclusive short-term vacation rental properties in Florida and California. Additionally, our dedicated support team is committed to offering our guests an unforgettable vacation experience accompanied by friendly and attentive service.

As a family-owned and operated business founded by Jo and Charlie Aunger, we launched Aunger Rentals LLC DBA Aunger Vacation Homes (AungerVacationHomes.com) and Formosa Gardens Estates (FormosaGardensEstates.com) in 2020. We rent and manage only the homes that we own - We are not an agency or management company.

Our goal is to provide the best possible rental experience for you, and we are here to assist you with any inquiries, special requests, or general advice. You will always communicate directly with us, the property owners. 
Our team has diverse professional backgrounds, including project management, hospitality, and specialized technical skills. Together, we are committed to providing excellent service in all of our interactions and taking exceptional care of our rental properties.





We strive to deliver the utmost satisfaction for our guests. We understand that vacations should be eagerly anticipated and stress-free. That is why we work diligently to ensure everything is prepared for your arrival. From making your reservation to checking out, our team is here to ensure your trip becomes memorable for all the right reasons.

Our aim is to make the renting process through us as effortless and hassle-free as possible. We take pride in providing the same level of service we would expect as guests ourselves. Our commitment includes the following:

  • Offering 5-star vacation homes and villas with exceptional service
  • Providing clean, genuine accommodations designed by architects with a welcoming atmosphere
  • Delivering transparent and truthful descriptions of our properties
  • Delivering personalized, friendly, and accessible service
  • Responding immediately to any inquiries or special requests
  • Providing hotel-quality linens, furnishings, and towels.

We are thrilled to have you as our guest and remain available for any questions or comments you may have at all times!


We’re looking forward to hosting you... please reach out anytime if you have any questions or comments!

Warm regards;

The Aunger Family
