About Polly Esplen

Polly Esplen and Joe Videan.

We live in Surrey in the UK with our two teenage girls, Zoe and Emma (not forgetting the cats). Joe is an American citizen from Michigan.

Polly Esplen purchased this house in 2011

Why Polly Esplen chose Kissimmee

We first visited Windsor Hills in 2007 (not our first visit to the area) and fell in love with the resort and it's proximity to Disneyworld. Our children were young and being able to spend a few hours in one of the parks, head home for a rest and then back out later was just brilliant!

We are a real mix of "theme park junkies" and nature lovers. It is just as easy to spend a day kayaking in a national park, take an airboat ride, spend a day at the coast or visit the theme parks. If you want a day to relax the resort facilities provide everything you need.

The luxury of the townhouse gives so much flexibility when compared to a hotel room with space to spread out and relax.

We come home from the area feeling as though we have really seen and done something for everyone.

What makes this house unique

A short drive to everything you could possibly want. Having an end unit as well as an open outlook from the rear of the property means we really have bought a house on a premium plot. It even has a southern exposure so gets loads of light and sun throughout the day. (Some homes back onto each other).

It's great to put your feet up by the splash pool and watch the kids play in the park.

The townhouses have a great position on the resort as they are only 3-4 minutes walk to the clubhouse and main pool. No need to get the car out.

We waited a few years for the right unit to come up and have never regretted that decision.

comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this comfortable townhouse. Owner is quick to respond, kind and professional. Photos are accurate of the current condition. The home was reasonably clean and very fresh smelling. Property is extremely close to Disney, maybe 15 minutes top. Also several major grocery stores and restaurants are within a 5 minute drive. We only used the master bedroom and the king bed is really comfortable. Master bath appears to have been recently updated with double sinks and decor. The kitchen is well outfitted with most everything that would be needed for basic cooking needs. Small packets of salt, pepper and sugar are provided along with coffee filters. Although the home is self-catering, the management had left some extra dish-soap, dishwasher tablets and laundry detergent. It was more than enough for us for our 7 day stay. The only thing we needed extra of was bathroom tissue.

We enjoyed the small pool on the patio, which was heated so well that we were very comfortable using it even though highs were only in the 70's. There's a really large supply of extra bath/pool towels. The neighborhood is very quiet and there's no road noise. The entry/exit is gated so occasionally there is a small wait to enter or exit the property, but nothing that caused us any irritation.

The only drawbacks were that we had difficulty using the cable box in the living room, despite following the very detailed instructions, and ended up not being able to watch TV downstairs for last few days of our stay. We didn't request repair since we weren't home much and didn't really mind not watching TV. But since the home is being used as a rental, it would be helpful if that was easier to use. Also there's a new management company that requests guests not lower the A/C below 74 degrees. We had no issue with this since we were there during the end of January and temps were really mild. I just wanted to make note of it for any future renters that might have an issue with wanting more control over the air system. There are ceiling fans in most rooms which kept us comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hi Elisabeth Thank you for your review and I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and do hope that you will return in the future. I am sorry that you had trouble with the television for the last couple of days and I am sure that Colin or Michelle would have been happy to pop over to find out what had gone wrong. Just a comment to let people know that our property manager does not control the air conditioning as we use an internet app. The A/C can be adjusted by guests to as low as 72 degrees which is as low as we have ever been asked but high enough to prevent the unit from freezing. If our MC has left a note in the house about the lower temperature it should be used as a guide only as we very much want our guests to be comfortable. Many thanks again and I hope to hear from you again in the future.

Hidden Treasure in Kissimmee

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this townhouse very much. It was comfortable, clean, well furnished and well maintained. Ideally located in a safe and quiet family friendly community near Orlando attractions and shopping.

Perfect townhome with easy travel to Disney

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom 3 bathroom townhome was perfect for our Disney trip. It was exactly as described and pictured. The reservation and payment process was seamless with the owners, and so affordable for our family of 5 even though we were traveling over the holidays at a peak time. The unit was clean and stocked with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the resort was quiet. It was an easy 10 minute drive to Disney, although traffic on 192 was very hectic at times. There is a Walmart within one mile of the resort and many restaurants nearby as well. Unfortunately it was too cold to use the splash pool or the resort pool on this trip but we all agreed that we would choose Windsor Hills, and specifically this unit, for a future visit to Disney.

Superb Accommodation, Excellent Location, well appointed community.

  • 5 of 5

The Town House is on a lovely, clean, secure gated community. The Town House itself has everything that a family requires for their stay. A 'home from home'. The Master bed was amazingly comfortable, I wanted to bring it home!! best nights sleep I've had for a long time! Well equipped kitchen and the splash pool was bigger than I thought and a welcome addition where you could sit and chill after a long day at the various Disney Parks. We had a small problem whilst on our stay but Michael and Family who maintain the property are on hand and very accommodating.

The Pool on the complex was really big and clean, lots of chairs, tables and loungers. Great games room and small gym.The staff around were pleasant and helpful, the only negative was that the site shop is limited, in terms of supplies, however, it was having a makeover whilst we were there.

Excellent location for the Disney and Universal Parks and loads of places to eat out near by.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Many thanks.

Home from home, in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in Easter holidays. My family of four were very comfortable in this property a real home from home. In the lead-up to the holiday the owners communication was excellent often replying within a couple of hours. The house itself is in a great location, very close to Disney and well appointed in Windsor Hills. The townhouse itself is very well kept, well equipped, with good decor and very clean we couldn't have asked for more. We certainly will be booking again!
