Why Owner chose Windsor Hills

My family vacation a lot and have always preferred vacation homes to hotels.

Windsor Hills resort is the best in the area with 24 * 7 security guarded gated community with the best club house features. The convenient location, wonderful lake views and well decorated home with high end furnishings provides comfort and relaxation for the whole family.

What makes this house unique

Our vacation home has it all!!! Wonderful lake view, south-facing pool, walk-able distance to clubhouse, tennis court and children play area, all this with less than 2 miles to Disney.

Vacation review

  • 3 of 5

Great price! Huge house, very comfortable and spacious! Loved that we had some items in the fridge when we arrived! House was not as clean as I would have liked, carpets were dirty and house was dusty. Towels were stained and had a musty humid smell, not a fresh clean just washed smell. No hand towels or face towels were provided. Refrigerator had a bad smell. 2 of the TVS in the rooms downstairs did not work. Other than that, My kids loved the game room and we all had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the TVs, they were working and cable remote had to be turned on for viewing the channels. We replaced with brand new fridge just before the guest arrived, so we called in the technician to find the reason for the bad smell. They checked and found no issues. For the past five years, our cleaning team tries their best to do a good job. I discussed with my management company and they assured to do a much better job. We use professional carpet cleaners periodically to keep our carpet areas in good condition. Once I got the feedback, I called the guest right away and explained, she was happy with the response and mentioned she enjoyed the home but expected it to be cleaner. During the stay guest did not report any of the issue with the management, if they would have called the management company as soon as they check-in we could have rectified the issues immediately. We want our guests to have great experience during their stay, after my discussion with my management company they assured me of better results with cleaning.

Great location for a excellent holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We (2 adults and children ages 11,8,4) stayed here for 2 weeks and had a fabulous time.

The Villa is located in a gated area which is great for peace mind and is only 10 mins from some parts of Disney. Even to get to Universal it did not take that long. In my opinion this is in a perfect spot for the parks.

The villa itself was big for us inside and had everything we needed including a pool table in the garage which the kids played while we got a well needed rest. The pool was nice as well and had a safety fence which was essential for our 4 year old and we were not overlooked.

The owner responded to our emails very promptly and positively throughout and after the stay.

I am a light sleeper and found the pool pump noise to be annoying but I suppose this would be the same for all villas with a pool. This was mainly in the back rooms. I did get used to it after a few days though.

Something that maybe could be improved is the cleaning. Although it was all neat and tidy I did notice places that looked like they had not been cleaned properly. This did not bother us too much so we did not contact the owner but I would recommend the owner having a word with the cleaning company.

All in all a great Holiday

Thanks

Wonderful Holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned last night from renting this beautiful villa. 8 of us in totally - My family of 4 (2 young boys) and both sets of Grandparents had a wonderful and relaxing week in this home. The pond behind the house makes it very private - and we did spot an alligator along with many other bird species. It was a short walk down the path to the clubhouse which was perfect for Grandpa. The tennis/ volley ball and golf green were a short walk down a different path and we spent lots of time there too!

We did Universal instead of Disney and it was a short easy drive from Windsor Hills.

There were a few groceries in the fridge when we arrived and it was perfect! Bacon eggs, milk, bread butter and juice! Just enough to get us refuelled after a long travel day to go get the groceries we needed!

The games room has a pool table and air hockey (even a pink battery operated jeep but our boys didn't use that). There is a ping pong table to place on the hockey table and ping pong balls but unfortunately we couldn't find any paddles.

My only suggestion would be to provide some patio drink ware (Plastic tumblers and wine glasses) so that you can enjoy a drink by the pool with out worrying about breaking a glass.

Other than that I would highly recommend this home!

GREAT Home!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home last February for a family trip. At one point, we had 6 adults, and 4 children in the home. From the minute I walked it, I loved everything about the home. Having 5 bedrooms (including 2 master suites), and 5 bathrooms were perfect. The 4 kids loved the 2 rooms upstairs (each with 2 twin beds). They loved having their own "space" from the adults. The teens also enjoyed the game room in the garage. We paid to heat the pool & hot tub. They were like bath water. Kids (and even the adults) were in there a lot! The location is close to Disney, but not in the craziness near the parks. I read a few mixed reviews here, but had no issues. The codes I were given worked great, no problem what-so-ever. The temperature was not bad (one day I felt a little cool, but was able to over ride & set the A/C a few degrees higher). I loved having the lake out back vs. looking at the back of someone else's home. We had rental neighbors on each side, but they were friendly & great. The gate guards were always friendly. We had relatives & friends come visit one day. Plenty of room for everyone. The wifi was FAST! Comfortable beds, plenty of bath towels, hand towels, face cloths, etc. Several pool towel in the garage. Several pool toys. The home even had a pack n play, baby monitor, & several strollers (I don't have kids that young, but thought that was nice!). Loved the "breakfast" food in the frig (bacon, eggs, half gallon of milk, orange juice, bread, and butter). Nice touch! I have no complaints, and if I returned to that area, I would gladly book this home again! Thanks for allowing us to stay in your home!

Good bad and the ugly............truth and honesty nothing less.

  • 2 of 5

I have mixed reviews on this property. The house is nice and clean but there are items that were unacceptable and after the owner agreed to do a one day refund she cancelled it and kept the money.

So right off the bat the owners integrity is questionable at best.

The management company is great, he is an English guy and very responsive.

Couple details:

The OWNER gave us the wrong codes to access her house. Then when I called she was unavailable. Thankfully the management company had the correct code and advised the code I was given hadn't been used since the house was built.

The pool timer was broken and ran 24/7. On top of that there is a leak in one of the pipes and the air noise is extremely loud. The bottom two bedrooms are such that the noise from the pool makes sleeping in them not welcoming.

BEWARE there is a BBQ but no warning that propane is extra!!! So when we had our steaks and burgers cooking it ran out. The owner said "call the property management", what am I supposed to do with the 1/2 cooked food at that point? Needless to say it went in the garbage.

The WII and Playstation has NO charger for the controllers. So after renting a game and wanting to play, we couldn't. The cords are missing\stolen. Owners response "if you need to charge them you need to bring it yourself"

The A/C is preset to about 71-73 degrees. Preset as in there is no turning it down to warm the house. For adults it may be ok, but for children and an infant it is near freezing. The baby caught a cold and was wrapped in blankets the entire time.

Other than the above..........the house is clean and nice.

Just dont expect everything to be working properly or for you to get a peaceful night rest.

Lastly............BRING LOTS OF BLANKETS!!!!!!!

PS - Almost forgot, thew owner had the gall to tell me all my complaints "didn't sound so bad" and "your vacation wasn't ruined."

Of course that is easy to say while you are hiking the Canadian Rockies!!
