Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our second time at this property and it certainly will not be our last. We have been coming to Orlando for the past 33 years and found this gem of a property just last year and of course had to return this year as part of our stay in Florida. Absolutely fabulous house with great Game Room, spotlessly clean with modern, comfortable beds/linens, flat screen TVS and above all an owner who provided us with very detailed information from driving directions to places of interest, restaurants and shopping.



Absolutely superb: first class service and we won't stay anywhere else when in the Orlando area. Can't wait to return.

Beautifully presented with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfection in a vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

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.

Super house and service level

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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 and we have utilized many VRBO homes. 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. The pool was heated as promised, so spent a great amount of time in it. Having our two six year olds the door alarms to pool area gave us great piece of mind that if they did go outside to pool area we would know. No substitute for good parenting but an added security feature. It is a beautiful area, neighbours were 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

Clean, Comfortable, and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

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. The management company was quick to respond to a minor issue we had with the pool alarm. 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!
