Windsor Palms House Rental Photos and Description

Home/Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) close to clubhouse



This sunny, spacious and beautifully appointed villa will be an ideal ‘Home at Disney’ for your vacation. If you want to be in the closest 5* Gated Resort in a 5* home, look here! This is one of the few villas offering a stand-alone hot tub with the private pool. The villa is decorated and furnished to a high standard, with many recent updates/upgrades, including brand new air conditioning, new pool heater, flat screen TVs in each of the bedrooms, tiled flooring through the main living area (bedrooms still warmly carpeted) and a new jungle-themed games room. Situated on a quiet circle and not overlooked to the rear, it is a short stroll around the corner to the clubhouse, where you can enjoy the Olympic-sized pool, pool-side bar, sundries shop, exercise room or take a shuttle to the Disney property.

Our Home at Disney is the perfect place to return to at the end of a long day with all the comforts of home. You can relax around the pool with a glass of wine and plan your next adventure. There’s so much to see and do in the area that you will need an occasional day to simply chill out in the home while the children have fun in the private heatable swimming pool.

In our convenient, well equipped home you can relax in the private pool and hot tub, play PS2 games, pool or air hockey with your family and enjoy wireless high speed internet access. Special child features include a Disney-themed room, board games and a PS2 PlayStation. We also share children’s books and movies for your use.

The two master bedrooms each have bathrooms en suite. Both have King-sized beds, and one has a large jetted soaking tub. The third bathroom sits between the two bedrooms with the twin beds and all are convenient to the Great Room. Guests may easily access one of the bathrooms right off the lanai, convenient to the pool.



Windsor Palms is a gated community offering its guests free unlimited use of these welcoming facilities - large swimming pool and spa, children's pool and playground, BBQ areas, gym, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and its very own 58 seat movie theatre. At the clubhouse as a guest you will also find a games room with pool tables, table tennis, bicycles, Wii room and a video games arcade.

Located just a few minutes from Disney’s parks and close to shops and restaurants, this is a perfect base for your trip to the Sunshine State and a relaxing haven from the crowds after a day in the parks. Find time to enjoy some of the many activities Kissimmee has to offer - ballooning, parasailing, wildlife parks, go-karts, spa treatments and much, much more!



This is our family vacation home and we can only spend a few weeks here each year until we retire. We hope you enjoy the feel of the home as much as we do. Please come, relax and enjoy time with your family. Borrow a paperback and return the next year to exchange for another one.

About Terri Martinez

My husband and I are from Rockville, Maryland. I am a Maryland native and Albert is originally from San Antonio, Texas.

We met dancing over 20 years ago and still take every opportunity to dance together or with our daughter. Our daughter is young and we have found ourselves visiting Disney a couple times a year where we enjoy seeing her experience the magic every time.

Terri Martinez purchased this house in 2011

Why Terri Martinez chose Windsor Palms

For us, when we stayed on Disney property we sometimes felt it wasn't cost effective to go visit another park or to stay away from the park and just swim and relax for a couple days.

So we tried staying at a pool villa. We had already chosen to stay in homes rather than hotels in our other travels and always found it to expand on the experience.

Our favority parts about staying in a pool villa are waking up and having breakfast together in our pajamas, playing in the pool together as a family and,before or after our little one is in bed, staying up late cuddled up to watch a movie together or relaxing in the hot tub after a fun-filled day.

We chose Windsor Palms because it offered a perfect combination for us - it is safe (gated and guarded), has beautiful private and sunny pool homes, offers a great club house and ammenities, and is so close to the attractions we want to experience.

What makes this house unique

I love the décor in our home. We are closest to the Animal Kingdom and our daughter adores monkeys and cheetahs and lions, so we thought it would be fun to have a bit of the jungle in our home. The games room is our zebra room and our master bedroom has lion bedding. I think the little touches of jungle are fun and add to the experience of being truly on vacation.

We also love having the pool right and lanai right off the great room. While it is most fun to play in the pool with my family, there are times I need to work. On the occasion we have to do some work while away I can let my daughter swim while I sit in the shade with my computer, have a coffee and focus on both work and her safety.

I also love how close we are to the clubhouse. When we want to meet folks at the pool or take in a movie on a rainy day, it is great to walk just around the corner to get there. The community is great for walking. My cousin and I take a morning walk and the resort is safe a lovely for taking a brisk walk or a leisurely stroll.

Lovely villa on nice site

  • of 5

We really enjoyed staying on this site in this villa. The site is gated and felt completely safe and secure, the amenities on site were very nice. The villa was a complete home from home with regards comfort, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, washer and dryer, and the pool with heating was just perfect to relax in. We especially liked not being too near other properties as the back has some privacy. Location is within 5 minutes drive of numerous restaurants on the 192. Overall would definately stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying in our villa! We are delighted your family enjoyed the resort and our home and we will look forward to your family staying with us again. We absolutely love the privacy of the lanai as well. It makes the house a great private retreat. In particular after days when we visit the parks it is wonderful to really escape to a homey place with just our little family and no lines in sight. And the privacy and homey feeling is one of the reasons the kids ask not to go to the parks so often. They have their choice at the house to have privacy or to go swimming at the clubhouse to meet new friends - best of both worlds :)!

Just as advertised!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at this Windsor Palms Villa. We had an outstanding time! The house was clean and looks just as it does in the pictures. The grand kids had a ton of fun swimming and playing in the game room, and us older folks appreciated the hot tub at the end of a long day at the theme parks! It takes about 15 mins to get to Disney's main gate and plenty of grocery and shopping within a 5 mile radius. Terri was super helpful with advice and quick to answer questions. I highly recommend this vacation home!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, We are so, so glad your whole family enjoyed your stay. I was delighted the house would serve as a perfect place for grandparents and parents to enjoy baby's first Disney visit. And we hope you return with the kids for many more. I'll have to add a growth chart so you can keep track :). We have been fortunate to enjoy multi-generation family vacations together and we treasure those moments and memories and so we are honored to provide a place for other families to create those special memories. Many thanks for your kind review. Warm Regards, Terri

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at this lovely and clean home. The house was so clean and so nicely decorated that we were all comfortable as soon as we walked in! The kids loved the Disney themed room. I think the pool scored equal if not more points than actually going to Disney! It is located so close to the parks that we were able to come home and take a swim break and be back at the park in no-time! The owners were so easy to get in touch with and so pleasant to deal with. Thank you for providing a wonderful house for our first Disney trip! I'm certain we will be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Dana, Thank you for taking time to share your experience! We are so, so glad you enjoyed your stay! I particularly enjoy that the pool was such a hit for your kids. Our daughter often asks if we can stay home from the parks when we visit so that she can continue to enjoy the pool. And I think her favorite experience is staying up a little late so that we can swim with the colored lights in the pool. Somehow the colors add just a little more fun to all the pool activities. We hope you will make our home your home in the future as regular guests. All our best regards, Terri and Albert

Great Property in a Great Location - Truly is "AS ADVERTISED"

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as was advertised.

The layout was perfect for our group which consisted of 2 families of 4. The 2 children in each family had their own rooms and the master bedrooms were great for us parents.

The pool, hot tub, games room, and numerous televisions were great luxuries after some long days at the parks and all were in great working condition.

There are numerous amenities and great restaurants very close to the home and all of the parks are very close as well.

The gated community is beautiful and very well maintained.

The house was very clean when we arrived and had all of the necessary cookware to prepare some great meals during our stay. The laundry facilities were a nice touch to make the stay feel like a home and not just another rental.

The Owners of the property were great to deal with throughout the entire rental process and have maintained a great vacation rental property.

We have rented several other properties i the Orlando area but I highly recommend this property for your next vacation in the Orlando area.

Owner's Response: Jason, Many thanks for your kind response. We love the Windsor Palms community and we are so glad that your families enjoyed the community and our home. I absolutely love that you shared how great the house is for two families to vacation together as we think it is ideal for friends to share great memories together and still have wonderful comforts, like the two master bedrooms, privacy for the parents and enough activity for the kids when at home. We look forward to your next visit! All our best wishes, Terri and Albert

Orlando visit

This is an ideal house to stay in to visit Orlando's attractions. The villa was well appointed and my wife and I together with my son and his family were comfortable in it. The club house and pool offer good amenities if you want a relaxing day.

This beautiful home was perfect to vacation at for our family of 2 adults and 3 children. We really felt at home and had such a nice time!

Our vacation was wonderful and the accommodations here were perfect. The home was spotless, and we enjoyed all the amenities. The posted pictures are very accurate. Both the interior and exterior of the home were well cared for and maintained.

The pool and hot tub were just the right temperature and we used them every day. We enjoyed the peaceful location, yet we were so close to all of the attractions.

It was a pleasure working with the owners and we will contact them immediately for our next visit to the area. We sincerely appreciated the owner's sincere and friendly assistance and communication, and prompt answers to all of our questions prior to our arrival.

None of us wanted to check out of this superb vacation rental and we all wished that our stay could have been longer. We would highly recommend this home to anyone staying in the Disney/Kissimmee/Orlando area.
