Windsor Hills Condo Rental Photos and Description

Closest Building to the Pool & A Fantastic Kids' Mickey Room

Welcome to Parkhopper Pad, our newly redecorated 2BR - 2 BR condo in Windsor Hills Resort. Parkhopper Pad can accommodate up to 6 guests. There is a king suite for Mom and Dad featuring a king bed with pillowtop mattress, designer bedding, and a private bath.

The children's room is decorated in bright primary colors and features everyone's favorite Mouse and some of his friends. This room has a queen bed, and a futon which makes into double bed, so the room can accommodate up to four children. There is also a Pack 'n Play (2 sheets included) for our smaller guests. Both bedrooms have a new 24' flatscreen HD-TV and DVD player. There is also a PlayStation with a selection of family-rated games and a library of family board games. The bath for the children's room also features the Mouse theme.

The living room features new comfortable leather furniture, new tables and a new rug. There is also a new 45" HD-TV and DVD player. We provide a free secure Wi-Fi connection, and condo phone with free long distance calls to the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.

The kitchen is fully equipped with full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and oven, microwave, and garbage disposal. Small appliances include coffee maker, toaster, and blender. There are plenty of cooking utensils, flatware, dinnerware, and glassware to prepare and serve meals. Wine glasses are included for some relaxing adult time on the balcony which overlooks the lake.

The dining room table seats four. There is a drop-leaf table in the unit and two chairs as well as a high chair if additional seating is needed. There are also two small tables and 4 chairs for enjoying the lake view on the balcony.

Parkhopper Pad has a full-sized washer and dryer, so you can pack lightly. New beach towels are also furnished for use at the pool.

This condo has an amazing location! Of the 8 condo buildings in Windsor Hills, Parkhopper Pad is in the building that is next to the pool and clubhouse. The building is only a few steps from the back entrance to the pool and clubhouse area. While the building faces the pool, the balcony is on the side of the building. It is located around the corner of the building from the pool, and features a beautiful view of the lake. This allows quiet lake view time to be enjoyed on the balcony without any of the noise or distractions from the pool area.

This is our family's vacation home and we have added a lot of 'extras' to make it comfortable and enjoyable when we vacation in the area. We hope that you like it, too!

About Carolyn Hudson

Carolyn & Charles Hudson - We live in Birmingham, Alabama. We are originally from Mississippi and are graduates of Ole Miss where we met in the Ole Miss Band. Birmingham has been home for over 35 years. We are the parents of 5 adult children, and we now have 13 grandchildren.

We cherish the memories we made on family trips to the Orlando area when our children were small. Now that they have their own families, they enjoy bringing their children to the same theme parks they enjoyed as children.

Two of our daughters worked as musical performers at Disney both in California and Florida, so even after our children were grown, we made lots of trips back to see their shows. We stayed in many Disney properties and some private rental properties. Once we 'discovered' Windsor Hills, we never stayed anywhere else! It simply could not be beat for facilities and convenience.

Last year we decided to buy and redecorate a condo in Windsor Hills, and we love it. However, our family keeps expanding, and there still was not enough room for us, so in August 2013, we purchased this condo. We refurbished it in September 2013, and look forward to making many wonderful memories here.

Carolyn Hudson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Carolyn Hudson chose Windsor Hills

Our grandchildren LOVE the Windsor Hills pool. The older ones spend hours on the 2-story water slide, and the little ones will dabble all afternoon in the children's dancing waters play area. We wanted to find a unit that was close to the pool. When we saw this unit which is in the building closest to the pool and also has a beautiful view of the lake from the lanai, we knew we had found 'the one'.

What makes this condo unique

Our grandchildren love to come to our home and all spend the night together. The giggles often go on long past lights out. We wanted a unit with a fun room that was special to the children and that was big enough for them to all sleep in the same room in a sleepover-type environment. We wanted them to see the children's room and say, 'WOW! I LOVE this room!'

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Loved Parkhopper Pad! Loved Carolyn - what a sweetheart! Everything about our experience, from start to finish, was perfect. The unit was just ideal for our family of four - 2 adults, 2 young kids. Everything was clean, in good order, and uncomplicated and easy. Towels were white and fluffy and clean. Bathrooms were sparkling. Kitchen was clean and had everything we needed for meals. Balcony overlooking a large tree and pond was great for sitting outside at any time of day. Kids loved the closet in the guest room, which they called the "playroom," because it had lots of games and things for them to explore and play with. I get motion sickness on elevators, so I loved being able to walk right up and down to this unit from the parking lot. Parking was easy, walk to the pool was a breeze (the pool/splash pad/hot tub is WONDERFUL for kids and adults alike), drive to the parks was a cinch. We had a truly fabulous vacation and we can't wait to rent from Carolyn again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice comments. I will be sure to show my husband the sweetheart comment just in case he begs to differ from time to time! :o) You pretty much covered all the reasons we chose to be owners in Windsor Hills and why we chose this particular unit - the great location close to the pool, the nice balcony with the tree and the lake view, the fantastic pool and the water play areas for the kids, the convenient parking, and the fact that Disney is just down the road. Even if we weren't in Disney's front yard, Windsor Hills is a great place just to bring the kids and relax and play together. But when you throw in the fact that Disney is a few minutes away, staying here becomes "the best place ever" according to some little people who are near and dear to our hearts! We hope you can come back again soon. Best regards, Carolyn

Slice of the Tropics

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at the ParkHopper Property. Everything was as advertised plus. The condo is super close to the pool, but far enough to minimize noise. The place is very clean and well decorated. The owners were very helpful and informative. Everyone on the grounds was very friendly. My family would definitely stay again upon a return to the Orlando / Kissimmee area.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you and your family were pleased with our unit and with Windsor Hills. We enjoy being being right there by the pool but yet being around the corner in case we want to nap or relax without hearing all of fun the kids are having at the pool. We hope you will consider staying with us again the next time you are in the Orlando area. Best regards, Carolyn

Parkhopper Pad is the Perfect Jump Off Piint

  • 4 of 5

This condo has the perfect layout for families; two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a full kitchen. It was comfortable and a great sanctuary to come home to after a long day at the parks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice words. We like the layout of the unit because we can get the little ones in bed in the Mickey Room and still have some space for adult time to unwind in the living room or out on the balcony. We're glad you had a great stay with us, and we hope you will consider staying with us again the next time your vacation plans include the Disney area. Best regards, Carolyn

A great winter getaway location

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Park Hopper Pad. The updates that were made since our last stay here, under former owners, were greatly needed and much appreciated. We are as comfortable here as we are in our own home and look forward to next year when we will be back, hopefully for a longer stay. Hopefully my posting on facebook will bring more families to enjoy this wonderful condo as well as the other condos that are owned by Charlie and Caroline. We were also very fortunate to meet these lovely people and see the work they put into their units. A big thank you to them for the work they do.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very kind words. We are so glad you feel comfortable in our "home away from home". What we have tried to achieve in all of our units is the feeling of having a place that does have all the comforts of home where you can either come back and recharge after a day of fun activities or you can simply stay there and and relax and recharge by doing absolutely nothing! (The doing nothing part definitely works for us, sometimes!) It was a pleasure to get to meet and visit with both of you during your stay. We look forward to having you back next year. Best regards, Carolyn

Love this Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great! We loved staying here for our Disney trip. Our grandson loved his Mickey room and bath. I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. It really makes our day when we hear that guests enjoyed the condo, especially our younger guests. We've had a few tears from our own preschool grandchildren when it is time to leave the "Mickey Room". So we always tell them that we will come back, and that Mickey will be waiting. We hope you can come back, too, and see Mickey again soon! :o) Best regards, Carolyn

Car: recommended

Windsor Hills located less than 2 miles from the entrance to Disney property, and is one of the closest rental areas to the Disney theme parks. We have found that it requires less travel time to stay at Windsor Hills and drive back in the afternoons for naps and pool time, than it is to stay at some of the Disney properties and use the Disney transportation system. It is one half mile from Hwy 192, which features many dining venues from fast food to table service restaurants. The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios are 10 minutes away or less, depending on traffic. Animal Kingdom is only 6 minutes away. Additionally, grocery stores and Target are only 2 miles away. Walmart is approximately 5 miles from Windsor Hills.
