About Sandy Turner

We are Sandy and Kevin Turner. We live in the UK, but visit Florida frequently to ensure our villa standards meet our clients' expectations and judging on the feedback we receive, it certainly does.

Sandy Turner purchased this villa in 2002

Why Sandy Turner chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

This much sought-after community is a development of executive villas surrounded by wide boulevards, beautiful conservation areas and tranquil lakes attracting wildlife and herons all year round. Our villa is situated on a quiet and safe street.

Mystic Dunes public championship golf course is only one mile away

Only 5 minutes drive to Disney’s Main Gate, its proximity allows guests to return to their villas for an afternoon siesta, before returning to the parks in the evening for fireworks and parades.

Not to mention the shortcut into the parks without using the main highways which can get congested during peak season.

What makes this villa unique

It is wonderful just simply having breakfast by the poolside under the covered lanai watching the sunrise every morning. At weekends, you often see balloons rising over the hills, which often then fly over the villa. You will also experience the interesting bird life in the wetlands area by the pool.

The layout of the villa suits our family's needs. The boys can be in the games room playing foosball, whilst the younger children can be playing in the pool and I can be in the bedroom on my computer

We often take a walk to the shopping plaza at the top of the road to collect our groceries and enjoy the good choice of restaurants.

Our favorite restaurant is only 5 minutes away, Millers Ale House, offering a full rack of baby ribs for $10.99 on Monday nights - just wonderful.


Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a superb holiday with your villa both living up to and indeed exceeding our expectations.

The kids enjoyed the pool which was a welcome relief after days in the parks.

The location was excellent both for the Disney parks,shops and restaurants.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your villa to anyone interested and hopefully our family Will have a return visit in the not too distant future.

Great location for Disney Parks!

  • 4 of 5

House was very nice, clean and great location very close to the Disney parks. I paid to have the pool heated but it was very cold, kids only jumped in and right back out one time. Other than that it was perfect lots of use of the game room.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. I am sorry the pool was not warm enough for you. It is is a shame you didn't contact me, as our pool guy could have turned up the pool temperature.

I Almost Didn’t Post This Review

  • 5 of 5

I worry that too many people will find out about this absolute gem of a rental! As much as I would like to keep it a secret, this home is perfect.

This place was SPOTLESS. Not a speck of dust anywhere. My mind was blown when I checked the pool pH before jumping in... Again, perfect! In a vacation rental with paid property managers that could easily cut corners that would fly under the radar, they didn’t!!!!!

That these people put so much attention to detail and the guest experience for such a low rate made an impression.

There is a lot of convenient shopping and dining nearby. The GPS included was invaluable in zipping around the city without having to mess around with a questionable one in a rental car. Excellent amenity there.

This is not a party your face off neighborhood like some places we’ve booked in the past (thank heaven!). It is a great place for families with kids and even better if you don’t. These homes are spread out enough that you won’t be disturbed by the neighbor’s kiddos playing in their pool!!!! Everybody wins!!!!!

In closing, stay here but leave me a week open every February!! And don’t forget to tip the housekeeper, they’ve earned it!

A great place to bring your family while visiting Disney

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house was exactly what the listing showed. It was close to all of the parks, food and shopping. Even though it was super cold outside our kids loved the little pool. This is a basic home but was very comfortable. My only complaint is that many rentals don't give you the paper products you need for your stay. It seems like a basic gift to offer toilet paper. Other than that we would recommend this place for sure. The view from the pool of the wetlands was beautiful and gave you a sense of privacy. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept.

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was centrally located and in a beautiful neighborhood. We traveled to Orlando for Twirlmania. The house is very close to ESPN and the Disney Parks. The house was very clean and accomodating for 3 moms with 3 girls getting ready for the parade/competition. Just note the internet modem is in the back master bedroom and needs to stay plugged in to work 😂. The mom staying in the room had to use the plug, thinking she was unplugging the lamp. Too bad she realized that when we were leaving 😳 We had a wonderful stay! Thank you!!!

Fantastic Orlando Villa

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect - close by to all the main attractions and very convenient to local shopping plazas and restaurants. The house came well-appointed with all the required basics to make our stay comfortable. We would highly recommend this property to anyone considering visiting the area and we can’t wait to return. Sandy Turner (the property owner) was highly responsive and very accommodating. Our trip was perfect and our stay was low-stress and just as we expected!

A+++ all the way.

Thanks for such an amazing retreat. We will definitely be back.

This home had plenty of room for our family of seven and the location to Disney was great, only a 10-15 minute drive to the parks!
