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. We never had to contact the management company as there were no issues.
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.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a stunning review of our home. I am just so pleased that you loved our house and it is indeed our second home (not just a rental property) so we do spend a lot of time and money in maintaining it to a very high standard. 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
Second stay as wonderful as the first!
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!
Thank you so very much for such a lovely review. I am, of course, delighted that you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed your time in our home again. I shall look forward to hearing from you again when you plan visit number three! With kindest regards, Carol
This latest holiday was our 4th stay in this wonderful villa, we echo everything that has been said by others in their reviews-the owners,location,facilities and the five star accommodation itself - all 1st class.
I would highly recommend this villa,you will not be disappointed.Don't waste anymore time searching villas and communities,this villa is the ONE and Formosa gardens is the PLACE.We are very thankful to Carol for all her help over the last few years and hope to be in touch soon to plan our return for number 5!!
Thank you so very much for the wonderful review of our home and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay again this year. It is always a pleasure welcoming you back and I will very much look forward to hearing from you when you are next planning a visit to Orlando. With kindest regards, Carol
Beautifully presented with everything you need
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, Florida heat and (sometimes) heavy rain. The perfect holiday home.
Dear Emma... Thank you for your review and we are delighted to read that you enjoyed staying in our home. Kind regards, Carol
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 an 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.
Thank you for the amazing review of our house. It is really lovely to read such a phenomenal review and to know that all the hard work we have put in over the years made your stay such an enjoyable one. I will very much look forward to hearing from you again very soon! Kindest regards, Carol
Super house and service level
The house, the surroundings and not least the exceptional service minded owner of the house made the stay incredibly good. The house is the highest standard where everything works to perfection. It clearly shows that the owner goes beyond what can be expected to make it a great stay for any occupants. We were throughout met with outstanding support with immediate help if a question arose. We would anytime select this house again due to the high standard and amazing service level.
Dear Bjoern Thank you for taking the time to review our home and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay at our house and I always do my very best to ensure that everything is as good as it can be - so I am delighted, of course, to read from your review that everything was perfect ... I hope you will stay again. Kind regards, Carol
