Exactly as advertised - Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website show this condo exactly as it is, right down to the napkin placement on the table! My family of 4 (two adults, 2 children ages 10 and 12) stayed there for a week and were pleasantly surprised by "what you see is what you get". The condo was clean, spacious and comfortable for our stay, with everything you need (except of course garbage bags, detergent, etc), including kitchen/cooking utensils and storage, a starter kit of soap, toilet paper and paper towel and the beds were very comfortable. The owners were timely with their replies and provided us with all the information we needed prior to arrival, which made the use of the condo and the community a breeze. We had zero issues with this condo rental. I would highly recommend it.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this condo. This was the first time we have ever traveled that we opted to rent a condo vs staying at a hotel. This was a great decision. We enjoyed all the room and the feeling of being "home". All the necessities were supplied even down to beach towels. My kids loved the Mickey and Minnie themed room! I loved that it was on the ground level and the pool and clubhouse were just a short walk. The welcome packet we received from Darice was so detailed and had so much information and guidance to help us. The location to Disney was great! So close! I ended up leaving a very expensive purse behind and the cleaning people turned it in and it was an easy process getting it shipped back to me. We hated leaving on check out day. We look forward in staying here again on our next visit to the area!

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

First off, the property is beautiful. Tastefully decorated, well-appointed, and a great location. We had everything we needed, found it to be immaculately clean, and felt like we were staying in a "home"...just what we wanted. Second, my kids simply fell in love with the Minnie and Mickey bedroom; their eyes lit up as soon as they saw it which makes Momma happy. Finally, the responsiveness, attentiveness, and understanding of the owners can't be matched. We were staying in this property during Hurricane Matthew and the owners were extremely accommodating and considerate of the unusual circumstances. I would highly recommend and hope to stay again when we return to the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brandi. I'm sorry the last days of your Florida vacation were cut short by Hurricane Matthew and that we could help alleviate any stress of getting home before the storm. Hopefully you can get back again someday with sunnier skies overhead.

Seriously Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

I stay in this condo with my adult children and 2 grandchildren (7 and 9 years old). The condo itself is standard. It is clean but certainly no "frills". We got locked out after our first day to the Disney Parks. After 2 hours of leaving messages alternating with poor service phone conversations, we finally got in after WE paid an additional $119 for the locksmith. There is no posting that states the key pad does not open ALL locks on the door. The owner was neither apologetic nor helpful. The management company was equally as useless. Don't expect to get any help here after hours if you run into trouble. It is poor service for an average place. The pool was filled with leaves, the slide was not functional. I would not stay here again. There were places less expensive that I am sure would offer the same condo aesthetics but better customer service. Sorry Darice and Michael left much to be desired in the customer service department.

Owner's Response: Our booking confirmation sent to this guest prior to her arrival contained instructions on how to enter and exit our condominium using the "keyless" entry on the front door. This guest was initially using the keyless entry without issue. Typically in hotel/rental properties there is an electronic lock to enter and exit the unit. The deadbolt can be engaged only from the inside of the unit for added guest security. During her stay, through her own admission, she locked the interior deadbolt on the door from the inside and exited through a screened lanai in the back of the condo. This egress has no obvious marked or lit path to the parking area nor is there keyless entry on the door. The guest contacted our management company after hours and reached the on call answering service. Our property manager responded to her call within 5 minutes and we spoke with the guest directly soon after. The only after hours locksmith available was dispatched within 30 minutes. In reference to the resort issues,, the Windsor Hills Resort manager confirmed there was no pool closures during this guests stay and the pool slide was open daily 10am-6pm, however, the pool itself is open 8am-10pm so it is possible the guest did not visit the pool during pool slide hours. The foliage surrounding the pool is mostly large palms that typically do not lose leaves. The resort manager also confirmed the pool is inspected and maintained at regular intervals throughout the day. We have been owners at Windsor Hills for eleven years and our level of customer service is evident by the many 5 star reviews given by our guests.

Exactly As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This condo was all we were led to believe and more. The amenities, location and layout were all fantastic! Super clean and had everything we needed. Owner could not have been any easier or more pleasant to deal with!! Windsor Hills staff was super nice and the resort amenities and security were great. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Impeccable & Very Prompt

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! 3 large bedrooms, with plenty of room throughout. Well maintained & impeccably furnished. Very close to parks & a short drive to Lakeland, for Spring Training season/games.

I also will personally commend the owner on the promptness in responding to my booking request. She got back to me within in minutes of my inquiry & we had all the booking wrapped up in under an hour. Other inquiries, made on other properties with property managers (not owners), responded after my arrival date!!

Customer service sold me on this property & we will definitely return.
