About Dawn Marie Calo

Our family has traveled to Florida for a bi-annual vacation since the 70's!! We started renting in the late 90's and it wasn't long before we bought our first home and in 2005 we sold that home and bought 2 more in Windsor Hills (we also rent VRBO #911633 - the house right next door)which is a slightly updated and larger version of Windsor Palms. We are family owned and operated as my daughter Dawn handles most of our bookings while my wife and I have begun to enjoy the house as a vacation spot 2-3 times a year with our son and grandchildren! Dawn was so involved she actually moved to teh Disney area, worked for Disney a couple years and eventually started her own management company and earned her Florida Real Estate license and she now manages our home with her full time staff. My wife and I reside in Brecksville, Ohio and I am the owner of Insta-Print Inc. in Parma, Ohio which is a small commercial print shop and mailing house. My daughter is very knowledgable of the area and is now a resident of the Disney area going on 10 years so feel free to inquire with any questions you have!

Dawn Marie Calo purchased this villa in 2005

Why Dawn Marie Calo chose Kissimmee

Our home was professionally decorated by our talented children (Our daughter is a professional decorator, our son is a professional painter) and with family in the area and management business we know what travelers want! We have an air conditioned game room with 42' cable TV at each home, free high speed wireless, plenty of room to sit and places to eat and relax ... as well as some of the most tastefully detailed themed rooms you will find in any vacation home in the Disney area!

What makes this villa unique

We are a short walk to the clubhouse, nestled in the back corner of Basnett Circle so away from the main road traffic. Just around the corner from the well known Windsor Hills playground! Our homes feature 4 bed rooms EACH with its own ensuite bathroom! And our two masters feature full-size King beds with pillow top mattresses. Our guests often want to take our mattresses home with them!

Florida Home

  • 4 of 5

The home was exactly as you see in the listing. It was very clean and well maintained. Location was fantastic! The only down side I would say was the Air Conditioning would only go as low as 72. As a New Englander, this was not low enough. Would have liked it to go to 68. Seemed a bit stuffy at times. Other than that it was a great home and thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback!! The setting of 72 degrees is the recommended setting by most of the air conditioning contractors in this area. The purpose is to prevent the machine from running all day and potentially freezing it up which can take hours to unthaw and often can cause other issues like lines blocking more often than normal - which of course would probably happen at 2 am :) I grew up in Ohio so I appreciate that it never seems cool enough here sometimes!

Warm Pool

  • 3 of 5

The house was large and the play room was good. The xbox is old. The pool was very good - stayed warm. We like this area and have rented there before. This house is a bit dated and needs the little things from a maintenance perspective: couple of broken light switches, paint looks tired, little small things. We will stay in another home next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our home! We of course strive to make your stay memorable and hope you will choose to come back the following year. We did fix a cracked switch on our pool light time after a recent stay but are not aware of any additional broken switches ... we do supply our number on every email correspondence and on a half dozen places inside and even outside the house - we could quickly have rectified any incidence had anyone from your party called, but unfortunately were not given the opportunity to do so. The Harry Potter room was decorated 3 years ago, there is brand new bedding and headboards put in last year in the other twin, we have flat screen TVs in every bedroom and our pictures (except for our 2nd twin which has just been updated) are accurate and true to color. The house was painted in 2013 and paint touch-ups done in 2014. Personal opinions will always vary from person to person regarding terms like "dated" but I strongly feel 3 stars out of 5 was an unfair response to your stay ...

WOW!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Windsor hills every year for the past 6 years and without a doubt this is the nicest and cleanest home we have stayed in. The furniture and décor is beautiful, not dated and old like the other homes we stayed in. There was a total of 9 of us staying with plenty of space for everyone. The pool was much bigger than I expected and kept the kids busy for hours. Customer service was first class. Dawn helped us out with any issues or question we had. She even returned my daughters beloved teddy that we had left behind (thanks again Dawn).

Without a doubt we will be returning again next year.

I cant say enough good things about this Home.

We had a wonderful stay.

Cornelius.

Best home rental we have tried by far, and we have tried them all...

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been visiting Disney every 2-3 years for many years now, and we have always stayed in a home rental. This one was the best by far. Well appointed, clean, everything as we expected, and closest to Disney parks. Management was helpful and prompt. Clubhouse pool was a fun distraction for our "day off" and we found everyone in the complex friendly and staff helpful.

We loved Emerald Palms!!

  • 4 of 5

Our first and lasting impression of this house was that it was beautifully decorated, well appointed and would thoroughly meet our needs. Our group consisted of four adults and four teenagers and at no time did we feel crowded or uncomfortable during our week-long stay. The boys, ages 15 and 16, were in awe of the Gryffendor bedroom. The games room was very popular with everyone and it was very convenient to have a full size washer and dryer available. We did not opt to purchase the pool heat and therefore the pool was only used a couple of times during our stay because the cool nights made the water quite chilly. We did have a problem with a leak under the kitchen sink, but a repairman arrived shortly after we advised the management company and he replaced the leaking garbage disposal the next day. Our only real complaint was that the pool heater for the neighboring house was very noisy when it was operating which made it hard to relax and enjoy the pool area during the day. Windsor Hills has everything you could want in a resort and is in a perfect location close to the Disney Parks, restaurants and shopping. We will definitely consider staying at Emerald Palms on our next visit to Florida.

Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been to Disney several time over the years and this was our first time renting a home... and we will never do it any other way again. Everything about our stay was first class from beginning to end. Booking was a breeze, and the property manager was extremely pleasant and attentive to all of our needs. The home is spacious and so comfortable. Because this property is so close to the parks, we loved stopping "home" in the middle of the day (after an early start) for a swim, and to let the little ones take a peaceful nap while we regrouped by the private pool & Jacuzzi (before heading back to the park for evening fireworks and activities). I can honestly say that this was the most relaxing Disney vacation that we have ever had, and we believe that booking this home made it possible!!!
