Perfect in every way
We have stayed in Carol’ s home a few times now and everything is always perfect. The house is always immaculate and provides everything you could possibly need for your holiday. Carol also provides washing powder, hand soap and lots of extras which is very unusual and very much appreciated. This year telephone calls were included as well as USB charging on every bedside table which came in really handy. Carol is very professional to deal with and the information pack is very informative. We hope to return the next time we holiday in Orlando.

Second stay in this beautiful villa
Thank you for helping us have a wonderful time in Florida making magical memories. This is our third stay on Formosa and the second time in this beautiful villa set in the lovely gated Formosa Gardens Estate.
The owners and management keep this villa in superb condition, comfortably furnished and accessorised with quality items and with more electrical gadgets/tech than a Curry’s/PC World store! There are so many towels and daily consumables included at this villa which makes for such an easy stay. The appliances are also top quality which also makes the boring but essential stuff easy to deal with.
The villa’s location is perfect for all the attractions, places to visit and to use either Orlando, Sanford or Tampa airports – we flew in and out of Tampa this time and it is only one hour away from the car hire at the airport to the house.
We thoroughly love this house and found it even harder to leave this time. A stunning villa, home from home, and we will be back.

Everything was perfect
From our initial contact with Carol with her extremely professional & polite pre-stay attention to detail & invaluable Information Pack to arriving at the villa, everything was perfect. The villa was the most well equipped & immaculately clean rental house we have ever stayed in and was lacking nothing. The girls loved the WiFi & Netflix as much as the wonderful pool. Proximity to all of the Disney Parks couldn’t have been better.
Your home was absolutely perfect for anyone wishing for a high quality experience while visiting Orlando and if available we would definitely return to your home next time – the girls are already asking for a return next year…
Many thanks Carol for making our first trip to Orlando & Disney so easy & hassle free in your lovely home.

Thank you for your lovely review and I am so pleased you were happy with everything we do and provide to make our guests' stay as enjoyable as possible.
We had an absolutely fantastic time in your home. This is our 2nd stay at Carol's gorgeous villa and I cannot praise both Carol and the house highly enough. Carol has been amazing and so helpful throughout and the information pack she sends you before you get there is unbelievable and so so helpful. Formosa Palm Villa is perfect in every way, with everything you need, from the high end decor and furnishings, to the modern high tech kitchen & washing appliances, there was nothing else we needed during our stay. The indoor pool and soccer tables were regularly used and provided so much fun. The pool area was stunning, with the children loving the pool and it was so peaceful for us to relax in the loungers poolside! Carol has made her house such a beautiful home and we were so lucky to be able to share it! Thank you so much - we will be back one day!!

Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous villa. Fantastic in every way, would heartily recommend.
This is our 5th trip to Florida in the last 8 years, staying in six different houses and I can say that yours was by far the cleanest, best equipped and most comfortable we have stayed in. The whole family enjoyed it very much and staying at your house made our holiday even better. We would definitely book again.

Thank you Darren... We are so pleased you had a wonderful vacation at our home. We have a fabulous management company now that takes wonderful care of our home.
Would not want to stay anywhere else
We had an amazing time in Florida and loved staying at Formosa Palm Villa. We have stayed at other properties in Formosa Gardens previously so we know the area is an excellent base.
I would say that Carol's property here is the best we have stayed in. The house was prepared to an extremely high standard and there are loads of little nice touches (like the coins for the cash only toll booths on the way) to the ice packs in the freezer to use while you stay and other supplies that really set it apart.
Thank you again for everything. You really helped make our holiday one that we will remember for a long time.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to Disney - in fact I wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else.

Thank you so much for your review and I will look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Beautiful property & surroundings
Precious time away with the family is all about “Making Memories” for us and to say we are picky and over plan is an under-statement. Carol’s knowledge of the whole area and pre-holiday paperwork is so professional, thoughtful and informative which gives you confidence you are in safe hands.
This is our second visit to Formosa, 5 years on from the first. The villa is the perfect place to call home whilst we made the most of World’s best playground beyond the walled, gated, safe Formosa Gardens Estate. The villa was so well stocked with home comforts in every room making the stay so relaxing. The decor and quality of the villa is second to none and like most pictures, they really don’t do the villa justice.
As a bonus the technology and super fast wifi at this house made the stay even easier, enabling weather, attraction, theme park, & restaurant research a breeze.
Outside of the villa, garden and pool is beautifully maintained like the interior with comfortable chairs, tables and loungers lined with palm trees, mature shrubs and manicured hedges. The spa helped finish off our perfect days and if that was not enough we played some pool and table football in the air-conditioned games room whilst listening to some music.
We cannot recommend this house highly enough. The perfect holiday with those little quality home comfort touches throughout that differentiate this house from the rest.”

Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you had a wonderful Christmas & New Year at our house. With very best wishes to you all for 2019.
We have had the pleasure of staying at Carol and Roger’s villa at Formosa Gardens several times in the last four years and have always had a wonderful time. Carol is such a pleasure to deal with and always extremely helpful.
The villa is well equipped with everything you need for your stay, the beds are so comfy and we just love spending time in the pool. The villa is very private and not overlooked. Formosa Gardens Estate itself is in a great location and is minutes away from shops, supermarkets, restaurants and you are on the doorstep to all the parks at Disney.
We have been going to Florida for over 30 years and Carol’s villa is by far the best we have stayed in. We are looking forward to going back again in 2019.
Thank you Carol, we had a wonderful time again.

My family had a wonderful time while staying in your villa. The location was perfect, it was beautifully clean and so well appointed. After staying in a hotel for our first five nights, it was lovely to have so much space to relax. The children chose the second and third bedroom, so they could have a kingsize bed each. We all slept really well. I wish I could have brought the bed home!! We all loved the pool area, and it was lovely not to be overlooked as you are in many other villas in Orlando. Formosa Gardens is such a lovely area, we felt safe at all times, and only a stones throw away from shops, and restaurants. I would highly recommend your villa to friends and family, and we hope to book with you for our next trip. Thank you for all your help, and information you sent before we left, it was all really helpful and made the booking process so easy. Hope to speak with you again soon

FIRST CLASS VILLA CLOSE TO DISNEY
A very relaxing villa, well thought out and equipped with everything you need for a villa holiday. Lovely pool area and games room made time away from the parks very enjoyable.

Best villa in 20 years
We have been to Florida many times over the last 20 years and your villa is by far and away the best we have ever stayed in.
We booked the villa as a base for our Florida holiday and we made plans to travel around the area and do Disney and Universal but in the end it was the villa that drew us in. We totally relaxed there surrounded by lush green views and the visiting Florida wildlife ˆ highlights being a pair of red cardinals.
The pool was immaculate: a brilliant size for a regular morning workout and spacious for floating in the afternoon sun.
You catered for all our needs and we had the best, most relaxing Florida holiday we have ever experienced - it was just what we needed.
The days in the villa became more frequent as we headed towards the end of our stay. We were reluctant to leave and most definitely look forward to returning again and again for this oasis in the hubbub‚ that is a Florida holiday.
Many thanks from us both

Beautiful home in excellent location
This was our 3rd time renting a home in the Orlando area. The first time at this Villa and I must say it was by far the best.
When you look at the pictures of the home on the website you can see that it's a lovely home but to actually walk through the front door yourself- WOW - it's really beautiful. The Villa is immaculate with top of the line appliances, excellent internet and games room.
This Villa didn't feel like your typical rental home. You could tell it was the home of someone who took great pride in what they had to offer. If it were my home I'm not so sure I would rent it out. It was that nice!!
Prior to arriving we received a welcome package in the mail which included house information, maps with written directions, coins for the toll road and a list of restaurants and shopping. Before getting the package I thought why not email me the information but once I received it I was impressed. Very professional! Between the welcome package and instructions throughout the Villa no detail was left out.
The gated community itself was beautiful and so close to all the attractions, restaurants and shopping. I can't say enough about this fabulous Villa.
Your attention to detail and the presentation of your home is an indication of how you really want your guests to enjoy their stay without any issues. It’s a reflection of the type of person you are and you should be very proud.
Thank you so much Carol for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home. You thoroughly spoiled us and now I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
I look forward to returning next year. Rita K.

I shall really look forward to hearing from you when you are next planning a trip to Orlando. Thank you again for the wonderful review. With kindest regards, Carol
SUPERB VILLA - OUR SECOND STAY
This was our second stay in Formosa Palm Villa, and we loved it as much as the first time. Carol's excellent information pack makes the arrival process stress-free from the moment you land at the airport until you are in the front door and relaxing in this beautiful home. Once inside, expect to feel comfortable and pampered. We couldn't have imagined a better place to spend our vacation - ceiling fans in all the rooms, an ice maker, lovely pool, large television, comfortable sofas and beds, and good internet. Everything was spotlessly clean. Add to that, the villa is a very short and easy drive to yummy restaurants, Disney, and shopping, and it becomes clear why we really didn't want to leave!
We absolutely loved our stay in your beautiful home. I hope that we will have another chance to stay in your villa. It is definitely one of the best places we have ever rented, and the only one we have ever returned to. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Perfect holiday home
Formosa Palm Villa was the perfect base for our small family to unwind after a busy day at the parks. Everything from the beautiful plush carpets, inviting spa, comfortable family area and walk-in showers were perfect. Everything worked as it should and any instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We didn't have to go hunting around for things like dishwasher powder or bin bags. I feel like I should mention the walk-in showers again as they were EXCELLENT, so easy to use and really helped after a full day of roller coasters. This was a perfect holiday home.

Perfection in a vacation rental
High expectations were set by the prompt response and information pack sent by Carol, the content of which would win gold if such a thing were an Olympic event. The location and house matched those extremely high standards. 10 minutes or so to the Disney parks, close to excellent shops and restaurants and conveniently close to routes that allow one to escape the parks when needed and head to either coast. The house itself was immaculately clean and was fitted and furnished superbly. A lovely balance between feeling like a prestigious home and a homely home at the same time. There is plenty of space for privacy in a group but at the same time, the flow of the house makes for several great gathering areas. The kitchen includes a fantastic fridge freezer and all imaginable items. Things such as washing powder and such being included may seem minor, but all of these small touches contribute towards the feeling that nothing is too much trouble and has been carefully thought through. The bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms excellent. The Games Room has one of the best pool tables that I have come across in a private home. The pool area is great and the pool itself is a good shape for swimming. Mickey Mouse shaped pools look good from the air, but try swimming around one! The pool area is discretely concealed by the surrounding vegetation and felt very private. We have stayed in many properties around the world over the years and I would confidently recommend this vacation home without hesitation. I am already plotting how we can make a return visit. To know that everything is as described and exceeds the expectations is a great way to start a holiday.

Nothing I can think of that I could honestly say would make the stay more pleasant - it was wonderful! The house was absolutely immaculate, which is such a wonderful find in a rental property! Often the surface appears clean but there are dark corners...not so in your house! We found everything as advertised, there was nothing at all lacking and we appreciated all of the little touches like laundry detergent. We loved the pool and the proximity to the parks. We would love to come back again not to go to the parks, but simply to enjoy the house! :)

Fabulous vacation villa
Carol: We thoroughly enjoyed your home. As a family we have been fortunate enough to do some extensive travel. Hands down our entire experience dealing with you has been the best we have ever had. From the time we made initial contact with you to the full information package we received with the toll coins, detailed maps, things to do etc. was all something we have never experienced before. We felt so comfortable going to your home. The full alarm and door procedure was so clear and detailed that we had no issues. The home was as you had described, was spotless, well stocked and the labels were great. The beds were amazingly comfortable. It is a beautiful area and very quiet. Grocery store and restaurants within 5-10 minutes. Disney longest drive was 20 minutes. Animal kingdom 10 minutes. Beyond this, Carol, I find it hard that I can't find one thing that was wrong or would have made our stay better. It was fabulous. Don't mind you sharing our name and comments and would also be happy if anyone ever wanted to touch base re our experience. Again we had an amazing time, loved your home and there were no surprises which is always nice to arrive and find a place as promised. Thank you, Carol. Warm regards Wayne and Raschelle Bodenstab

Lovely home on Formosa Gardens Estates
We were delighted with our stay at Formosa Palm Villa. Carol went above and beyond from our first contact until the day we left. Every question we had was answered quickly and thoroughly, and the pre-arrival pack gave us an abundance of information and helpful maps. The villa was absolutely lovely, even nicer than the photos. All of the furnishings are in great condition, and very comfortable. The modern televisions and fast wifi made evenings in very enjoyable. Having ceiling fans in all the rooms was another bonus. All in all, we could not have asked for a better, more comfortable or convenient home in which to spend our holiday. If we are lucky enough to return to Orlando, Formosa Palm Villa will definitely be our first choice!

Beautiful relaxing villa
We have been visiting Florida for almost 30 years and have stayed in many villas. Carol and Roger's Villa at Formosa Gardens is certainly the best we have stayed in. The villa has everything you need for your holiday and is furnished and equipped to an excellent standard. The pool is fabulous and great for relaxation. The villa is located in the beautiful setting of Formosa Gardens Estates which itself is a few minutes from shops, supermarkets, restaurants and of course Disneyworld. It is the perfect house in a perfect location. We have stayed there on a few occasions, most recently in September/October this year.

Hi Dan.... delighted that you enjoyed staying at our house and we will look forward to hearing from you again soon ....
From the first time we were in contact with Carol, the owner, to the very speedy refund of our deposit our experience of Formosa Palm Villa has been first class and we would not hesitate to recommend it to our family and friends and anyone else looking for a perfect villa which is situated just a short 5 minute drive from all the Disney parks.
Where to start? Throughout the booking process Carol was so helpful and then to receive a wonderful and such detailed information pack from Carol before we left was so thoughtful of Carol - Carol even went to the length of enclosing 3 quarters to use on the toll road on our trip from the airport!
The villa is simply amazing and to list everything would take too long, again Carol has put so much thought into making this a real home from home and made numerous 'little' touches to make our stay so easy and enjoyable.
All the rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard, each having their own TV.
The beds were so comfy, perfect for getting a great nights sleep after a day in the parks and splashing around in the villa pool!
The pool area was stunning, very private and perfect for either relaxing or enjoying the gorgeous pool, as our 3 children did every day!
The huge kitchen area has all the modern appliances you could ever need and more! Simply wonderful, as were the high tec washer and tumble drier.
The games room was so much fun, daily pool and table soccer games were held which just added to the whole experience.
As I say it would be impossible to list everything we enjoyed, but the whole family simply had a fantastic time and would like to say a huge thank you to Carol for sharing her gorgeous home with us, hopefully we will return one day!!!

An Absolute Gem
Having stayed in various villas over the last 20 years, we found this beautiful home and now only ever want to stay here. This is our fourth stay and each time it only gets better. The owners have furnished and equipped the house to an exceptionally high standard and the photos really don’t do it justice. This trip we found a new 65” TV in the main living room! The house is always spotlessly clean and has everything anyone could need.
Thank you again for another wonderful stay in your home and we can’t wait to go back again….

Wonderful stay in a beautiful villa
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful villa, thank you so much. Everything was so clean and villa really well equipped with very modern appliances. Sitting out in the evening by the pool, watching the birds and other wildlife was so relaxing, so peaceful, lovely location, perfect. I cannot fault anything. We would love to visit again soon.

Delighted that you had an enjoyable stay and I agree that the outlook from the pool deck is very relaxing. Hope you will stay again soon and thank you for your review.
Everything was excellent
Thank you for sharing your villa with us. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our overall experience from booking to returning home after the holiday has been excellent. The communication was first class and the accommodation was spacious, clean and well stocked with all you could need. I would recommend the villa without hesitation and hope to come back ourselves in the future.

FANTASTIC TWO WEEK VACATION
Formosa Gardens Estate is a well maintained, quiet and peaceful area of Kissimmee with some fantastic properties positioned just off the 192 and all within 5 minutes drive of the Disney Parks. Formosa Gardens is a gated community and the property benefits from a monitored alarm system, which can give you peace of mind whilst holidaying.
The homeowners have gone to great lengths to ensure that the property is available at the highest standards and the rental process is as simple as possible. We have been holidaying in Florida for many years, but this is the first time that a homeowner has provided an information pack prior to travelling, including maps, directions, information on local shop and restaurants.
As for the property itself, it is extremely well maintained with high quality appliances and furnishings. The pool is bathed in sunshine from sunrise to sunset and the hot tub is a perfect way to end a busy day.
We had a fantastic stay in this villa and would highly recommend it to others and a huge thank you to the homeowners for making the effort they do to ensure our stay was a memorable one.

JUST FABULOUS IN EVERY WAY!
This is a gorgeous family villa. The location on Formosa Gardens Estate is ideal. The layout with the dining and lounge wrapping around the open plan kitchen is very sociable with four beautiful bedroom suits at each corner. Ideal for families. Every detail has been thought of - we really could not fault it. And as for the pool and hot tub. After a long day at the parks we all really loved coming back to a relaxing soak. Looking forward to coming back.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VILLA
Having never booked a villa through a website, we were a little apprehensive at what to expect, but after the first email received from Carol, we knew that we had nothing to worry about. Throughout the entire booking process and stay, Carol was an absolute pleasure to deal with, extremely helpful and answered our many questions swiftly.
The information pack received was very detailed, maps, villa and area info was invaluable!
From the moment we walked in to Formosa Palm Villa, we knew we had made the right choice! Immaculately clean and fresh, we could see the pride of ownership.
I really don't know where to begin to describe this gorgeous home!!!
Actually, it is far lovelier than even presented in the pictures. Every detail has been thought of from the high quality furnishings, new appliances, to the more than plenty plates, dishes, cutlery, towels etc. The villa was immaculate, bedrooms far exceed expectations including the quality of the beds and the bedding. The pool, spa and lanai are perfect and not overlooked, making the outlook from the pool area, private, tranquil and so very relaxing. We loved spending time at the pool, which got the sun from early morning until late at night and sitting in the spa with a glass of wine at the end of the day, was just wonderful.
Formosa Gardens estate is easy to find and is very close for the parks, the malls, restaurants and all manner of activities, yet is set just far enough off the main road to ensure privacy.
This villa has everything you could wish for and we would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends & relatives and even complete strangers, as they too, would be impressed with the high standard shown in this home.
Would we come back to Formosa Palm Villa....ABSOLUTELY, in a heart beat.
A huge "Thank You" to Carol for her help and for allowing us the privilege of spending time in her wonderful Florida home!
We'll be back

Dear John & Hazel I was overwhelmed by your wonderful review.... I am, of course, delighted that you enjoyed staying in our home and it was an absolute pleasure helping you plan your vacation. We will look forward to welcoming you back when you next Orlando... and a very big thank you again for such a glowing review. Kindest regards Carol
WOW! AN ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING VILLA
Wow!! What a really fabulous villa – so beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and with brand new appliances I would just love to have at home. The crushed ice on tap was especially popular. So much effort has gone into equipping this home - you really have thought of everything a family could need for a brilliant holiday. The pool & spa is just perfect – secluded and yet with a lovely view from the pool deck. Fantastic villa, fantastic location - we will most definitely be back again. Also, Thank you so much Carol for all the pre-holiday information – everything we needed to get ourselves organised for the perfect vacation.

ONLY GETS BETTER!
This was our second stay at this wonderful villa and we really can't recommend it highly enough.Updated appliances and new air con only compliment the whole 5 star experience - so long as there's availability when we travel to Orlando this is where we will stay-no doubts.
Formosa gardens is a beautiful gated community with everything within easy reach.We found dealing with Carol to be a dream(again),the whole house was spotlessly clean and just really really beautiful.
Hopefully stay number 3 comes soon- we cant wait to get back.Thanks Carol.
