We bought this home in May 2012 because we were vacationing at least once a year in Orlando and wanted a place that had the comfort of a high-end hotel along with the amenities of our own home in Atlanta. We had rented many homes in the area and they all failed to include many of the luxuries that we were looking for like soft cotton bedding, cozy blankets, comfortable beds and sofas, large screen TVs, and DVDs, books, and toys for the kids. If you want to stay in a home that will make your vacation even better than you planned, then read on....
With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, our newly redecorated, fully air-conditioned, modern style townhome with a private heated spa pool is perfect for almost any family, comfortably sleeping up to 8 guests.
The master bedroom has a king-size luxurious bed -- 500-count cotton sheets, soft hypo-allergenic comforter, memory foam mattress topper -- with an attached master bathroom for privacy. The second bedroom includes a queen-size bed -- also with luxurious bedding -- nightstand and dresser, with an adjacent bathroom. A third spacious Disney-themed bedroom is perfect for up to 4 kids of all ages, with twin over full bunkbeds and a twin trundle bed, lots of space for them to play in the bedroom, and a private Mickey themed bathroom.
Our home is fully furnished, including a fully equipped kitchen (full size refrigerator/freezer, full size stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster-oven, dishes, pots/pans, utensils, silverware, etc.), iron/ironing board, all your linens and towels, and a full size front-loading washer and dryer. The dining area comfortably seats 6 adults.
For your entertainment, we have a 51 inch plasma HDTV and Blu-Ray/DVD player in the living room including a variety of DVDs to entertain all ages. We added an Xbox + Kinect in January, so bring your games! We have 32-inch wall mounted HDTVs in the master and downstairs bedroom, and 26-inch HDTV in the Disney-themed bunk bed room. Our home includes free local phone calls and free WiFi. We have a great selection of books for all ages (no need to worry about bedtime stories), games, video games, and toys. Your kids will enjoy furnishing our Fisher Price dollhouse, doing puzzles, letting their imaginations go crazy building with Duplo blocks, jumping up and down with an Xbox sports game. We have a private heated spa pool in the screened patio with privacy walls on the side and a beautiful southwest-facing view in the back, that is perfect for early morning and evening relaxation. The pool area is provided with a removable safety fence for extra added protection.
We hope you love our home as much as we do.
Our home is located in Windsor Hills, one of the closest resorts to the Disney parks and all of the fun activities around Disney. It is a 5-Star Resort situated just west of the I-4, and less than 1 mile south of US Hwy 192 on Old Lake Wilson road.
Windsor Hills is the most desired community in the Disney Area. The first thing you'll notice when you arrive at the resort is that it's a gated community, and that the gatehouse is manned by security on a 24x7 basis. You'll then drive for two hundred yards to our home, and on the way you can't help but notice the Clubhouse and pool complex on your right. Windsor Hills boasts a resort style pool with a two-story waterslide and spa (only a short walk from our home), separate fountains to play in and a toddler pool, billiard tables, tennis and volleyball courts, fitness room, video game room, children’s playground, sundry shop, and even a movie theatre! Kids of all ages will want to stop at the video games room, or play pool or ping-pong in the clubhouse. The onsite movie theatre has regular showings of popular and recent family friendly movie releases. As you explore the Windsor Hills community, you will find a fabulous Castle themed play area for the kids with a giant chess set. On top of all of this, it is located just minutes from Walt Disney World. You will not be disappointed staying in this community!
We have our own management team, with 24-hour emergency service. Our team guarantees excellent service and are there for you in case of any question or emergency. Our home has the most modern electronic lockbox system where there is no need for keys.
Windsor Hills is located two miles from the Walt Disney World entrance. Sea World - 10 minutes, Premium Outlets- 10 minutes, Gaylord Convention Centre & Universal Studios-15 minutes, Wet & Wild-15 Minutes, Orange County Convention Centre -15 minutes. Orlando and Kissimmee is a great location for keen golfers. Wyndham Palms Mystic Dunes Golf Course, Falcon's Fire and Orange Tree and Disney Golf courses are only minutes away. A wide choice of restaurants, shops and supermarkets are to be found nearby. Restaurants included Outback, Applebees, Bahama Breeze, and LongHorn Steakhouse. Supermarkets/shops - Publix, Walmart, Walgreens are a short drive away.
We had stayed at several different places in the area and Windsor Hills was the one place that had everything we really wanted: the large pool and water slide, activities for the kids on days we didn't go to theme parks, 24-hour security, and really quick access to Disney World and the major highways. It was also NEVER empty -- who wants to stay in a resort that everyone else is avoiding?. We have stayed in both the condos and the townhouses in Windsor Hills and found the townhouses to be much more comfortable and the spa pool on the back patio is wonderful for keeping our kids occupied.
The main pool and clubhouse is a one block walk away, and a very cool playground with giant chess set is about a one-block walk in the opposite direction. Tennis and basketball courts are located about two blocks away on the other side of the clubhouse.
