Windsor Palms Villa Rental Photos and Description
4 Bed/3 Baths (Sleeps 8), Two Master Suites, Free WIFI, private pool and spa
Location, location, location! If you are looking for the closest 5 star resort homes to Disney, then look no further. If you don’t want to be stuck in long lines of traffic going to Disney (and they get really long the further you are away!) then stay here. If you like staying in one of the only 5 star GATED communities that is 3 miles from Disney, look here and forget the rest! Welcome to Magical Day Villa, our home away from home. We purchased our villa in the spring of 2013 and just finished doing a total overhaul in June 2013 with continual improvements each time we are there! From new, flat screen TVs(55 inch in the living room), to Serta icomfort King mattresses in each of the master bedrooms, to new tile throughout the main living areas (carpet is still in the bedrooms) and a brand new air conditioning unit, nothing was spared!! We have two master suites, each with their own king bed and bathroom. The larger of the two master bedrooms, has double sinks and a large jetted tub. There is also a large walk in closet. It also has a new King size Serta Icomfort mattress and a 32 inch flat screen TV. The second master bedroom has a bathroom with a standup shower, sink and toilet. It also has a new king size Serta Icomfort mattress and 32 inch flat screen TV. The other two bedrooms have twin beds. One of the twin bedrooms was decorated with our younger guests in mind with the Mickey Mouse and friends theme. Each of the bedrooms has a 32 inch flat screen TV as well. The shared bathroom for the twin bedrooms was also changed to a Mickey Mouse motif that guests both young and old will enjoy! Each bathroom has its own hair dryer so you don’t have to bring one.
There are two separate eating areas in our almost 2000 sq. foot home. One is an eating nook that is part of the living room that seats 4 people and the other is in the kitchen and seats 6 people. There are also bar stools for eating at the kitchen island. The whole kitchen/living/dining area is open concept, so when you are in the kitchen you can still talk to people in the living room and dining areas. The living area is beautifully decorated with comfortable leather furniture so you can relax after a long day at the parks watching the 55 inch flat screen TV. There is free WIFI and free US/Canada telephone calls.
The kitchen features granite counter tops and upgraded cabinets. The kitchen also comes equipped with all the pots, pans, plates, utensils, cups and electrics that you will need to enjoy your stay. There is an oven, microwave, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster. Off the kitchen is a separate laundry area with a washer and dryer and iron and ironing board for your laundering convenience.
And if a swim is what you had in mind, our home features a large swimming pool and Jacuzzi-spa. The pool is southwest facing, so it gets the sun all day long. There is a pool fence to protect our young guests from taking a swim on their own. There are also pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool. Under our covered patio we have a table and chairs where you can have a snack while you take a dip in the pool. There are also separate lounging chairs for just laying out by the pool enjoying the sun or reading a good book. There are various pool toys to enjoy too. We provide pool towels too, so you don't have to bring some from home!
Our prices from OCTOBER - APRIL, have taxes, cleaning (for stays of 7 days or more) AND POOL HEAT INCLUDED in the price. Prices the rest of the year include taxes and cleaning (for stays of 7 days or more), but pool heat is optional at $30/day or $200/week. Our prices also INCLUDE damage protection of $1500 for your stay so that you don't have to be worried if you accidentally break something!
For the real little ones, we have a pack 'n play with a sheet, a booster seat, a toddler bed rail, a baby monitor, a stroller and some toys.
We now have a games room in the garage, with a new AMF Master pool table, an air hockey table and a darts board! The pool table was professionally assembled and installed to ensure that it is completely level in the room.
Our home is also a short walk (5 minutes) from The Windsor Palms clubhouse. Everything at the clubhouse is free with your rental and includes a large, communal pool (salt water) and toddler pool, a convenience store with Starbucks coffee and any supplies you might need in a pinch. Also at the clubhouse are many different games, pool tables, a Wii game room, a 50+ person movie theater, a workout gym, a business center with computers that are free to use, a sand volleyball court, a kids playground, a bike rental area and grills. The clubhouse just added a brand new Tiki bar at the pool, so guests can come relax and eat at the pool or grab some food and bring it back to the villa!
During high rental times (holidays, spring break and holidays), we require Sat. - Sat. stays. For last minute rentals during high times, we waive this requirement.
If you would like to have a grill at our villa, one can be delivered from our management company for $50/week. This way we ensure that the grill is clean and full of gas to last your entire vacation.
Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club is across the street and just down the street, about a mile away, as are numerous restaurants and grocery stores.
Harley-Davidson is just down the street if you want to rent a motorcycle and cruise around the area!
Besides the free WIFI at our villa, we also offer free calls in the US and Canada.

Carrie purchased this villa in 2013
Why Carrie chose Windsor Palms
My family and I took a trip to Disney in the fall of 2012. We stayed at the Windsor Palms and absolutely fell in love with the location and the amenities. This is by far the best place to stay when coming to Disney. No resort is closer or as nice as this place. We stayed here and we had other family that stayed in the park when we came in 2012. We always got home before they got back to their room because it took so long using the Disney bus system! Save yourself the headache and stay here!
We knew when we left we couldn't wait to come back and in the spring of 2013 we decided to see if we could purchase a place that we could share with friends and family near and far, so they could see how wonderful a place this area truly is.
What makes this villa unique
The size of this home and the open concept floor plan is what made this place unique to us. At almost 2000 square feet of living space, and two master suites, this home was perfect for one large family or two families looking to vacation together. It is large enough that you have room to spread out, but laid out well so that people in the kitchen can see and talk to the people in the living room and dining area. Plus, having a private pool and spa was a huge deal to us. Also, having a covered outdoor dining area was a big bonus. The community area on the property was also one of the best we saw compared to the other resorts in the area.
