Stayed Sept 2016. The property is even better than described on the website and either met or exceeded all our expectations. After long days at the attractions we looked forward to returning to the house where, being in a gated community, we could relax in both safety and comfort. The location is great for both attractions and restaurants but particular for Disney. We look forward to our next visit.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean, perfect size for a family and exactly as described online. Polly was very responsive to my questions prior to booking and the booking process itself was smooth and easy.

We had a fantastic holiday- fun days at the parks and back for a dip in the pool.

We would love to return to Florida and would definitely use this property again.

This property was perfect for us. We've stayed a few times around Kissimmee and Davenport condos and townhouses and this was the best. It was so well placed for visiting everywhere with all the facilities you could ask for. Previously we've had loud pipes or too many birds round the pool, timeshare touts - but none of that here. It was peaceful and very close to the clubhouse. The weather wasn't as kind as it could have been as we caught the tail end of a storm but you can't help that and it didn't spoil anything. We just went shopping!

The house had everything we needed. Comfortable beds and very clean. We didn't use our pool at all but I suspect young children would. The resort pool was great though and you could always get a space. Polly was very pleasant and efficient to deal with and she contacted me when we were at the airport coming home to return our deposit! Thank you so much. Missing it already

Excellent Stay, Excellent, responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay here. Stayed here with 2 young kids.

Few things to keep in mind:

- One bedroom is downstairs, 2 upstairs. Fairly tall set of stairs, but perfectly safe and fine - my kids were fine.

- House pool is small (as reflected in picture) Great for a quick dip of just floating on a float.

- Resort pool is about 4-5 minute walk away. Very nice, not crowded at all.

- Staff at Resort is VERY friendly and helpful.

- Location of unit is VERY convenient from front gate...about 90 seconds from gate unlike many other units.

-Location is VERY convenient to Disney, about 20 minutes from Universal (which is where we went for 4 days).

-Very quiet and private

-Nice to take a walk or jog within development

-Supermarket, Target, etc. is about 10 minutes away

-Some chain restaurants in same area - about 10 minutes away (e.g. Cracker Barrel), fast food like McD's and Wendy's about 6-7 minutes away.

House is clean, roomy, kitchen has all essentials. Go to Dollar Tree down the road by Target to get small / cheap items for the week like condiments, etc. Great for snacks to for the parks!

No additional fees like many other owners.

VERY prompt refund of deposit. (3 days later!)

Very accommodating owner to my few requests...VERY responsive/quick response to all my emails - and I had a bunch.

Wonderful unit close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Lovely unit with pool. Kitchen is fully stocked, close to groceries and disney. Apartment is very well kept and is on a lovely resort. Dealing with Polly was great and helpful. Highly recommend the unit for a family of 4-6.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had been to Orlando last Christmas and had an idea of where we wanted to stay. We booked this property for a week and thought that as we had minimal time at the property it wouldn't really matter what is was like! However we arrived and we felt at home! The property is lovely, fresh and clean. There are instructions on how to use the TV and a well written manual to help with everything in and out of the property. We felt very safe as it is a gated community. Our boys (15 & 12) loved that the wifi was very good! It is close to everything which is a huge bonus. Polly made it very easy to book and she supplies lots of information at the time of booking. We loved it so much that we have re-booked for December 2016! Can't wait! Thanks Polly and Family

Location

From the Owner

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
