About Ray & Kim Hall

We fell in love with Sanibel many years ago having spent 15 years visiting Florida and staying in many other villas when our kids were little. (they are grown ups now)

Just over 6 years ago Sanibel was up for sale and we snapped it up.

Formosa gardens was always our favourite location being so close to the parks and local attractions yet in a very private location on a gated community.

The plots are much larger than other resorts and the homes are all celebrity class.

Sanibel is a wonderful place to stay and has a lovely feel to it with wonderful views over Star Lake.

Every night you can hear and see the fireworks (on a clear night) Its a wonderful family home to stay in.

We hope you enjoy Sanibel and look forward to receiving your enquiries soon

Happy Holidays

Safe and gated community

Oversized very private plots

Wonderful views over Star Lake

Hear and see the fireworks at night

The home is a very high standard yet very comfortable to live in

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Holiday Villa

Our stay here was second to none. From the description and pictures our expectations were high and we were certainly not disappointed. Upon arrival the villa was spotlessly clean and presented, incredibly spacious and finished to a very high quality. Everything we could want for was provided from kitchen equipment to towels making it a real home from home. The poolside area is a delightful place to relax when you crave some peace from the parks and you can even view the Disney fireworks from your lounger. The location was exactly what we wanted - close enough to Disney to feel part of the action but at the same time far enough away for it not to feel like part of the park. Clearly a lot of time and investment has gone into the furnishings and decor making it a pleasure to come back to and reside in after long days at the attractions. Restaurants and supermarkets are a short drive away and the neighborhood is safe and secure. We'd certainly recommend a stay and can't wait to return one day.

It was our second time at Sanibel , and first class again with everything. Hidden gem on Formosa Gardens and to have the view of the lake is a added bonus. Great location not far from the parks and restaurants and supermarket. Well worth taking a look at this property if your planning on staying in Florida. Booked again for next year carnt wait. See you soon .

Excellent location, spotlessly clean, everything you need for the perfect Orlando Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us (6 adults, 2 children and 1 baby) spent a wonderful two weeks at this property. The property is spacious and well furnished and allows 3 family units to have their own privacy to relax after a hard day at the theme parks (Disney only 15 minutes easy drive away and Universal only 25 minutes up the I4). The Villa has all the amenities you could wish for including a massive washer and drier that made easy work of our daily washing. The Swimming Pool and Hot Tub (which we had heated) is clean and family friendly (max depth 3m) with an assortment of pool toys (now including an inflatable Unicorn and Crab for the more adventurous which decided to live in Florida rather than come home with us). The back of the Villa overlooks a beautiful lake (lots of fishing occurring when we were there), Herons and a duck family greet you in the morning. You can also see the evening Magic Kingdom Fireworks from the Villa Patio. Two BBQ's are provided. In case you can't escape day to day reality there are TV's everywhere and very fast Internet (Phone calls back to UK included in Villa cost). Beds are large and comfortable with quality bed linen (nice children's room with Spiderman and Frozen themes). Well-equipped Games Room (Pool / Table Football etc). Shopping in two large Supermarkets (Winn Dixie and Walmart) are only 5 minutes’ drive away.

The owners, Ray and Kim, were unfailing helpful and fast in their response to any questions we had, it was a real pleasure dealing with them.

It is fair to say that we would recommend this Villa without hesitation and would be sure that you would not be disappointed in your choice.

ps. Don't miss the Everest and Avatar rides at Animal Kingdom, the Rockin Roller Coaster and Terror Tower at Hollywood Studios and Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom. Volcano Bay in Universal is the best Water Park in our opinion (look at hiring a Cabana for the day) and Sea World has some spectacular Roller Coasters (Manta is awesome)

Best Regards

The Meredith, Thomas and Wynne Families from North Wales in the UK

Fantastic accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed for 10 perfect days in this beautiful house with its wonderful views!

The house had everything you needed and more. My daughters loved the added extras especially the heated curling brush!

All the bathrooms were a godsend, with two grownup daughters it meant no arguing for mirrors when it was time to go out!

Me and my grandson loved our early morning swim in the nice warm pool before eating our breakfast outside. Once his plate was empty it was straight back for another dip!

Being able to spend so much quality time chilling in between park visits with my family made it feel we were on two holidays!

Thankyou for making our family trip to Disney, lovely and relaxing!

Excellent and Awesome.Cozy and Very roomy

  • 5 of 5

My adult family and grandchildren stayed at this home, there was 8 people. We love the house it was very clean and very spacious. I liked that it had a security fence around the pool for my grandchildren and also had security on the doors so the kids could not get out. We had the pool heated and it was great, we will able to go swimming at night. It is well worth paying the money to have the pool heated. Well we were there we went to animal kingdom and Magic Kingdom,it was about 10 to 15 drive which is great when you have little kids. We were able to see fire works at night from the back yard. We all loved the house and we talked about how we cannot wait to go back next year and yes we would stay at this house. I would give the house a 10. AWESOME
