About Gayle White

Coming from the northeast, I moved first to California, then Texas and finally for the last 25 years have chosen Orlando as home. This is my favorite part of the US for year round 'green', ease of travel to and from beaches east & west and wonderful activities! There is always something new to do. Every entertainer ends up performing here so they can combine vacation and work. Major corporations are here for conventions and team building. Families visit to create memories that last forever. Those of us who are fortunate enough to live here appreciate our tourist population as YOU are what Orlando is all about!! :)

Gayle White purchased this villa in 2010

Why Gayle White chose Windermere

The location can't be beat. First the views - lakefront! You can be at any park within 5 to 10 minutes or at the convention center, movies, go carts, mini golf, outlet shopping, theater, live music, golfing - just seconds to minutes from your front door. 5 water parks for endless fun -Aquatica, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Wet & Wild and Coco Kay.

What makes this villa unique

There's an on-site restaurant that has a take out Pizza Hut too. Game arcade. Lighted tennis courts. A new super WalMart sells discount tickets right up the street. Safe too and so easy to get to and from the airport or Interstate.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had so much fun and liked the town house. It was close to the pool and kids under 12 eat free at the restaurant. We spent most of our time at Universal but plan to come back for SeaWorld next time. We also spent one day at a Disney water park. This place is easy to get to and lots of room. After being together in the car and in the parks all day, it was nice to have rooms away from each other and a family room where we played card games. We'll be back!

Orlando Oasis is just that

  • 5 of 5
To start with the manager, Gayle, was wonderful and very accessible. I was traveling as a single dad with my two pre-teen girls. We got into Orlando early and we were able to find the place with ease and get checked in early with no problems (place was already cleaned and ready before 11am...wow!)... Thanks...that helped out immensely. The place was wonderfully furnished and in a great location for our intended purpose. My girls immediately gave it their approval upon arrival....and they are very picky girls. The location provided easy access to just about everything you would need to visit in Orlando. The welcoming book with directions to various destinations was great and spot on. If I found myself in Orlando again for business or pleasure I would definitely inquire into the availability of this "Oasis". About the only "negative" I could think of was the multiple remotes for the televisions. I guess I'm sort of spoiled at home in that I only want to have to use one remote to operated everything..dvd, tv, cable, stereo etc...but it wasn't too complicated after Gayle talked me through it over the phone...lol! Overall great place and I would definitely use it again if I find myself in Orlando.

Owner's Response: I hear you! I'm calling Direct TV today to find out what they can do to get it to one remote. Meanwhile, I'm updating the welcome manual with pictures and clear explanation to turn TV's on more easily. Thank you for your very positive review!

Our stay was wonderful. It was nice to either go sightseeing or stay home and relax. The location is perfect to see all central Florida has to offer. The condo fit our needs and we enjoyed it very much. We could sit out back and enjoy the view or sit on the balcony and people watch. The restaurant next door is good beyond good. It is within walking distance which makes it nice on nights you don't want to cook. Gayle goes above and beyond in seeing that we had everything we needed or wanted. We enjoyed our stay very much. There was one problem. We had to leave too soon.

Very Highly Recommend the Condo, Location, and Manager

  • 5 of 5
This rental is an excellent value. I whole-heartedly agree with Johnny's Super Value at a Perfect Location review. Universal, SeaWorld, and Disney are just 10 minutes away. You can see Magic Kingdom fireworks at night. Legoland is just down I-4 and easy to get to. Other than the parks, there is a lot to do that is close. Dr. Phillips Dog Park is on the other side of the lake and only about 10 minutes away. It has a separate area for small dogs and is very well maintained. An excellent restaurant in atmosphere and good food is a 2 minute walk. A Super Walmart, Whole Foods, shopping, restaurants, post office, car wash, and other services are minutes away. It is easy to drive and get to know the area.

The manager is extremely nice and interested in maintaining a clean, comfortable and nicely decorated condo. So nice to have both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds, its own bathroom and large closet. Being on the lake is lovely. The rent is a welcome find in an expensive area.
We are definitely returning next year for a longer stay!

Super value at a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Much better than we expected for the price! This location was great. There is a Smokehouse grill next door, just a short walk across the parking lot. Joe's New York style pizza is next door and delivered pizza to us until almost midnight. Shopping was just at the next traffic light, strip mall and a Super Wall-Mart, where we found DISCOUNT tickets to the parks. We were happy to find a Whole Foods at the very next intersection. Most any type restaurant was near this intersection of Turkey Lake Road and Sand Lake Road. Seasons 52, Ruth Chris, several very good Italian and seafood, plus many more.

This could not be a better location! We were just 10 minutes from Universal and about 15 minutes from Disney. The owner Gayle, was very helpful with showing us the back way to Disney and saved us the traffic jams on I-4 near Disney. Disney during the holidays are a sight to behold and we have some great memories of the Magical time we all had.

We have told friends about this wonderful townhouse and location we have discovered. We liked the way the bedrooms were private from each other and it was clean, good mattresses and the kids liked the lake.

We hope to make it back soon. I was just checking dates available and was reminded that I had not given a review.

Description and photos were as shown in the ad and the owner was very nice and helped with all our requests. Saved us lots of time and expense.

Only wish the traffic was not so heavy near the parks, but it was in the middle of the holidays.

I would and have recommended this townhouse to friends & family. You'll enjoy it!

Johnny

Great location. Good rate. Good size for one family. Unlucky leak.

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at this property for five weeks starting mid April. For most of the time it was myself, my wife, and an 8 month old baby, but the in-laws also came to stay for a few weeks.

The rate was very good and would be tough to beat in that area.

The location is excellent. There is a Whole Foods right down the road, and Sea World is a 15 minute drive away. It is also close to Sand Lake Road, which has Restaurant Row, an area with many top class restaurants. The neighborhood is OK and there are many families in the area. For some reason the unit next door had a broken window that was visible from the parking lot. One of the managers said that they were aware of the issue, but the unit owner had decided not to get it fixed. Broken glass was on the lawn for days. We hear that crime is unheard of in the area, so it was probably some sort of accident combined with lazy owners.

The unit itself is pretty much as pictured. There is a nice lake out back which makes for a nice morning walk.

We had a few technical problems with our unit. There was a rain storm and the guest bedroom sprung a leak within our first week of moving in. The property manager was very responsive and came over that night to take a look and provide extra towels to soak up the mess, but a leak is a leak. The day we moved in the property manager mentioned that the unit had leak issues before we moved in, but they were supposedly fixed, and that we should keep an eye on the ceiling. It's unfortunate that we were moved into a unit with a known potential problem. The temporary solution for the leak was to put a tarp covering the balcony, which remained for the duration of our stay. It wasn't pretty to look at, and we could not use the balcony.

The DVD player was also an unexpected inconvenience. For some reason it would only play in black and white. The property manager came to have a look but was unable to fix it before we checked out.

We discovered a few dead (better than alive) cockroaches during our stay. One was dead behind the couch when we moved in. The cleaner was notified and took care of it, but it is unfortunate that the place was not properly cleaned before we moved in.

To summarize, great location, great price, good size for a family. Some technical issues made our stay less enjoyable than it should have been.

Owner's Response: Yes, there was an unfortunate leak. The repair had to wait until guest move out as it required working inside as well. The guest opted to stay rather than move between townhomes during their visit. I did all possible to provide good service, offer alternative options and respond to their needs.

We try to be very thorough with cleaning. In Florida especially next to lakes, we do see some palmetto bugs and treat regularly. As noted no living insects were observed. It is likely the one they found under the sofa managed to expire after it was cleaned. The cleaning staff cleans under, over, behind everything. They will always make a return visit if anything is amiss. In fact, a concerned cleaning person was at the property within 1 hour of their call about finding the bug. I suspect that the insect problem stemmed from the leak as none have been seen since the repair completion.

We are a small private community of townhomes. There are some owners who live out of the state or country and are not easily contacted. The Home Owner's Association was informed about the glass. The clean up did take a couple of days until the lawn service people did their regular work. I personally maintain the outdoor landscaping of my townhomes so that your entry is always nice.

The rates are wonderful for this great location. Guest satisfaction is very important to me. I am always sure to give guests my personal cell number so that should they have any concerns I can be reached immediately. Your feedback is appreciated which helps to improve the townhome. I'm always trying to do more to add to your enjoyment - have replaced the DVD player too!

Their Papillion Spa offers hair, nails and massage. Taxi service is fast from the townhomes as they are always around the Westgate area and generally just have to drive from there to you. See your welcome manual for phone numbers. There is a shuttle bus from the on-site restaurant near your townhome to the Westgate lobby so you can go up there easily during restaurant hours. It runs about every 20 minutes. No shuttle to the parks.
