This is a great place to vacation.

Nearly adjacent to Windsor Palms is Mystic Dunes a 5 star golf course.The 5 star golf course Mystic Dunes Golf Course is just across the street, walking distance from Windsor Palms, where guests enjoy preferential rates. Just a short two-mile drive is Arnold Palmer's world-famous golf course, 'The Legend,' at Orange Lake.

The villa has two Master bedrooms with there own full bath and two themed bed rooms that share an adjacent full bathroom. The kitchen dining room area is open and hugely spacious.

Within a few miles are many fine restaurants, all kinds of shops, miniature golf , and of course Disney .

The villa has it's own lanai covered pool right outside the kitchen living room area. I have found quiet evening swims after a day at the parks to be very relaxing. Also The kids seem to love it anytime and is used a lot during our vacations.

About Peter Paugh

We are two families that got together and bought this beautiful villa more than 6 years ago. My wife and friends are avid marathon runners and love the runs at Disney. They have done the goofy which is 15 mi first race than 26 miles the next day

Between us we have 10 children who thoroughly enjoyed our vacations over the years. There is so much to do in the area between Disney, Universal, Sea World, Gator World, New Ropes course, 5-star golf course, Water Parks, and endless restaurants, . No one wants to go home at the end of our vacation, and it seems many things we wanted to see or do could not fit our stay and will have to wait till next time.

Peter Paugh purchased this villa in 2007

Why Peter Paugh chose Kissimmee

Windsor Palms the gated community that our villa is located is perfect for a Disney vacation. It's a quiet, safe, and relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. Night time swims in the pool are a treat. There is a lot to do at the clubhouse, which is just 100 yards away, when we are not at the parks.The Windsor Palms Resort has the highest repeat renting rate with a reason: it is the best location to the Disney parks, shops, restaurants and the airport. Also the club house is very well equipped, designed to be user friendly, newly renovated and very well managed. They just added the Tiki Bar & Grill at the main community pool!

We Offer Our Guests Free Wireless Broadband , and each bedroom ha its own flatscreen TV

We have spared no expense in appointing this luxury home to meet every need that you may have whilst visiting the theme parks and attractions of central Florida.

What makes this villa unique

What makes this villa unique is that its located in the prestigious Windsor Palms Resort. It is closer to some Disney parks than if you had stayed at one of Disney hotels, especially if you know the back way down Sheribeth Rd to Osceola parkway.

We had a great time! Disney was great but the house was spectacular and the clubhouse made us feel like royalty. Can't wait to get back, thanks so much!

Great spot for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property was as listed in the advertisement. We were a family of 7 and stayed for 2 weeks. Close to the parks, close to stores and shopping. We stayed in January and had the pool heated, Well worth it as the kids went in everyday! We had a couple of inquiries the first couple of days and the property manager was quick to get back to us each time. Overall, I would recommend and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to this property in the future.

Pool was fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the pool heater was broken. But, it was fixed and heated to 89 degrees and we enjoyed it the rest of our stay. Owner said he wouldn't charge us for the pool heat, which was very gracious. House was great for our family. We had twin 15 month olds, so the pool cage was nice. The girls could still be outside without worrying about them getting into the pool.

Great Mother/Daughter Visit

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and Sister/Daughter spent 4 nights here. The home looks just like the pictures! Very Close to DisneyWorld. Windsor Palms Resort is lovely.

Texted the management company one morning at 7:30am with an FYI about a light needing replacement and one of the bathroom door knobs not functioning well. They responded at 7:32am and completed the requested tasks while we were at the parks.

We would definitely rent this home again. One recommendation: we felt it's time to paint the interior of the home, especially the main master bedroom, as many dirty wall areas

Peter, thank you for providing a great place for our vacation.

The house was nice. We enjoyed the amenities it had to offer.

  • 2 of 5

Although we enjoyed the house, communication with Mr. Paugh was disappointing. Responses from him were few and far, except when we decided to add a day to the beginning of our trip. Unfortunately our trip was cut short by Hurricane Irma. We notified Mr. Paugh of our early departure and thanked him for our stay. There was never a response back. We've stayed at Windsor Palms before and the other owners were very personable, and we could even contact them by phone.

Room for family to unwind

  • 5 of 5

Clean, convenient, comfortable. Everything was as depicted. Kids loved the pool to start and finish their day in the heat of the summer. No neighbors behind the pool added to the privacy.
