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

Ray & Kim Hall purchased this villa in 2010

Why Ray & Kim Hall chose Disney / Orlando

Sanibel Villa is set on a great location

10 mins from Disney

2 mins to the local shops and restaurants (15 min walk)

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

Outdoor BBQ and plenty of comfortable outside seating

Including an outdoor TV!!

The home is well equipped and accommodates 10 people so a 2 family booking can be accommodated.

The home also works well for 1 family providing a nice open planned kitchen and main lounge area.

If you have never stayed at Formosa Gardens before you are in for a real treat and we are confident that you will never want to book any other Villa community ever again.

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.

Your home was absolutely beautiful. We had a great time. It was clean and well furnished. It has had many updates since the pictures were taken and the pictures do NOT do it justice. The pool was like bathwater and the hot tub was great exspecially coming from Wisconsin and Minnesota. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you again. We couldn't have asked better.

Excellent proprerty in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sanibel villa which as the previous visit was immaculate on our arrival. The villa is very close to Disney World and many local shops and restaurants on the nearby highway, the 192 off of interstate 4 west (i4) The villa has every facility you could need with it's lovely pool and spa over looking the lake. The owners Ray and Kim made the booking process very easy, you are given the information to get to the villa and gain access in advance of your trip. Formosa Gardens feels very safe and secure. Would not hesitate to book again or recommend. This villa will not disappoint, excellent in all areas. ***** stars

The Villa was spotless and the furnishings etc. were of a high standard - everything you could ever need or want in order to have a memorable holiday was supplied. The beds were fantastic and everybody slept well throughout our stay. Location and outlook were superb - beautiful lakeside view and only 10 mins. from Disney what a combination. We were also lucky enough to enjoy 2 wonderful firework displays from one of the parks from the comfort of the Jacuzzi - with a glass of wine! We are looking future dates for Orlando and Sanibel will be the villa for us - would highly recommend.

The perfect villa in the perfect location, it was an absolute pleasure dealing with the owners. The villa is all you could want or need, close enough to all the attractions but in a quiet and pristine gated community. The best recommendation my family and I can give is that we will be back.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a variety of houses in Formosa gardens over the years but this house around Star lake is the best location we have rented. Great to eat breakfast overlooking the lake and watching the wildlife and also watching the fireworks from Disney around 8.45 in the evening (they even continued throughout hurricane Hermoine!) Communication from the owner was excellent prior to leaving and upon arrival the house was clean, comfortable and well appointed with fixtures and fittings of a higher standard than previous houses we've stayed in. Only one small niggle for my sister (but maybe because she relies on the Internet too much...) was that in the upstairs bedroom there was no wifi signal so she spent a lot of time sitting halfway up the stairs!!!. Other than that a great stay and we have already booked to go back next year so I think that says it all!
