About Jane Sandon-Allum

We live in Dorset, UK and have 2 grown up daughters of 22 and 24. The States and Florida in particular have been our holiday destination for almost 30 years and we have had some wonderful times there.

We decided to buy a lake front home on Windsor Hills (after much research!) as an investment, because it is one of the best locations in Orlando and the nearest to Disney World. So as family holidays go, this part of the world takes some beating!

Jane Sandon-Allum purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jane Sandon-Allum chose Disney / Orlando

WINDSOR HILLS is consistently voted top resort of the area. It is a private, guarded, gated community and the nearest to Disney World and very close to other attractions.

We have been careful to price our Villa to reflect that, also the high standard of furnishings and accommodation and the tranquil location overlooking the beautiful conservation lake (with no rear neighbours!) and just a couple of minutes walk to the clubhouse. Our guests agree, it is a perfect location.

You are also literally minutes away from everything: Disney, Animal Kingdom, Legoland, Sea World, Universal Studios (Harry Potter), Water Parks, supermarkets, shops and numerous restaurants catering for all tastes. So whether you just want to relax or be thoroughly entertained everyday, it is all here!

What makes this villa unique

The Villa truly has one of the best positions on Windsor Hills overlooking the tranquil conservation lake, filled with water lilies and birdlife. With views like these, from the villa, pool or decking after a busy day.....well, life doesn't get much better!

It is an immaculately clean, extremely spacious home, airy and beautifully decorated by interior designers. The Villa is also just a couple of minutes level walk to Windsor Hills clubhouse and all the resorts free to use 5* facilities. The children's themed Disney Castle playground is a minute's walk from the villa in the other direction.

The Villa is luxurious in style and maintained to the highest standard by our local manager and his excellent team of cleaners, housekeepers and maintenance workers.

We feel it is a great advantage having such a first class local property company caring for our home. For our guests being able to contact them and to have available their wide range of concierge services, together with their immense knowledge of the area and Windsor Hills, we think is a true benefit.

Like other guests and many repeat guests, who have loved their time in our Villa, we are confident you will have the most memorable, happiest holiday there. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a Guest Book in the villa which is full of great comments and praise about the villa and the enjoyment guests have had holidaying there and experiencing the fantastic location. Many of our guests are repeat visitors which we hope you feel is a very good recommendation in itself.

Fantastic location for Disney parks in safe well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

I have no hesitation in recommending this villa if you are looking for a location that is ideal for quick easy travel to all Disney parks and easy driving to Universal and Seaworld. The villa itself is on a gated community so very secure. Well decorated throughout with all the equipment you need for a great family holiday. The owners were very responsive and helpful before the trip and whilst there we found the management company to be equally on the ball. For kids and adults alike the pool and spa are first class and safe. Indoors the playroom, kids DVD selection and the wii were all a bonus for some downtime.

Plenty of places to eat locally with good food shopping at Publix nearby. There is also a handy list in the villa if you want to organise home delivery.

This is our second time at Windsor Hills but our first at this particular villa. It was certainly a step up from the previous villa we rented and if going back to this area we will book this villa again. All seven adults and four children from age 2 to 60 had a ball.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this villa to anyone staying in the Orlando area. We took a family trip to Disney World and the location of this Villa was excellent.

The Villa was so beautiful, clean and well stocked with everything you would need. I loved that this Villa overlooked the pond and was so close to the community area.

When we arrived there was food and drinks to get us started which was so appreciated.

Jane was so wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay at this Villa again.

So welcoming and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Really close to the parks, great view from the pool. You really can see the fireworks for Magic Kingdom and Epcot from there which we regularly did with a glass of wine. Very comfortable beds. We all slept like logs. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review Carol! Have to agree the fireworks 💥 ✨ are a great spectacle from the villa pool decking, especially on the swing 'love seat' with a glass of something in hand 🥂!! Yes, we have super comfy beds with 800+ thread count cotton bedding. Definitely what you want after a day on your feet round the Parks. Thank you again and we very much hope to welcome you back in the future.

Faultless villa with awesome lake view

  • 5 of 5

This villa is superb and provided the perfect base for a fantastic holiday. My girlfriend and I are keen travellers and have stayed in some terrific villas, but this place ticks all the boxes. The villa was immaculate, very spacious and had everything we needed. The spotless kitchen was the best stocked we have ever come across. When we were looking to book, the lake view and closeness to the Clubhouse were very important as we had our parents with us.

Being so close to the Disney Parks made travelling easy, so we fitted in more than we initially planned, including a Rodeo and day trips to Busch Gardens, the Kennedy Space Centre and Tampa/Clearwater Beach!

Dealing with the owner Jane meant that the whole process from enquiry to booking and everything else we needed for our holiday was an absolute breeze. I had always been a bit apprehensive about booking a villa direct with the owner before, but this stay has completely changed my view of that! 

Thank you Jane for everything and answering my endless questions with such good nature. We travel a lot to many different locations and never usually go back to the same place, but our stay at this villa and everything Orlando had to offer has completely changed that. We can’t wait to return next year and for many more years to come, I’m sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful and detailed review! We are very fortunate to have an incredible property management team in Kissimmee looking after the villa, to make sure everything is 5* perfect for our guests. Agree, everyone loves the lake view villa location and closeness to the Clubhouse along with all the other facilities Windsor Hills has to offer. Thank you too for giving a good insight into all the other adventures within easy visiting distance. A Rodeo, Busch Gardens, Kennedy Space Station and Clearwater beach. Wow! You certainly did a lot! Finally, you are very kind in your praise and it was a pleasure to work with you planning your holiday and stay at the villa. We very much look forward to you returning next year!
