Overview

About the property

Executive House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Private Pool & Spa

Don't settle for a cramped hotel room when you could have way more room, rest and relaxation in our 4 bedroom 4 bathroom vacation home, and all for the same or less cost! After an action packed day at the amusement parks, shopping centers, golf course or beach, spread out and unwind in the over 2000 sq. feet our home provides. RELAX in the private spa or REJUVENATE yourself in the private, fully screened, south facing, swimming pool. Our home has everything you need: a comfortable and spacious living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a beautiful dining room, laundry facilities and top of the line pillowtop mattresses on the beds. Want more action? No problem, our home comes equipped with 5 TVs (1 in every bedroom and a 55 inch TV in the living room), high-speed Internet access, free long distance calling within the US and to Canada and a finished game room (with Foosball, ping pong, and air hockey). With restaurants and groceries nearby, our location is PERFECT!

As a guest of ours, indulge yourself at the Windsor Hills Resort Club House where you can enjoy the huge lagoon style pool and water slide, a state of the art fitness center, a sand volleyball court, a basketball court, tennis courts, video arcade, billiards, 40 seat movie theatre, putting green, children's playground and more (all at no charge). The Orlando/Kissimmee area has so much to offer, all just minutes from our vacation home. DISNEYWORLD is a short 2 miles away and so close that a return to our home for an afternoon swim is highly recommended. Universal Studios and Sea World are easy to get to by car or by resort shuttle. For those who love to shop and for those who love great deals, there are 3 outlet malls in the vicinity. If golf is your passion then our home is perfect with numerous courses a short drive away including the number 2 rated course in Florida. For sports enthusiasts, try tickets to an Orlando Magic, Tampa Bay Lightning or Tampa Bay Rays game. You might even want to visit Busch Gardens in Tampa or the Kennedy Space Centre out east.

About Judy or Michael

We are a family from Winnipeg, Canada who are fortunate to have a very busy life full of kids and their activities (mainly volleyball and basketball - we have tall kids), hobbies (a love / hate relationship with golf), work (have to pay the bills somehow), and all the surprises that life has to offer. When we finally get a break in the action, we love coming to Central Florida for a guaranteed great vacation. Our Memory Lane Villa and Windsor Hills is our home away from home!

Judy or Michael purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Judy or Michael chose Disney / Orlando

Before purchasing our home, we rented homes, town homes, and condos in other locations.

We learned how important it is to be staying as close to Disney (and all the theme parks) as possible. Being a few miles further away from Disney does not sound like much, but Central Florida traffic can be extremely frustrating (especially after a long day or during an afternoon rain storm). A few miles further can add a long long time to your drive. We really do not like being stuck in traffic, especially while on vacation.

We also learned that condos and town homes are not for us. Many of them are beautiful, but because there is only a wall or ceiling separating you from your neighbours, they just do not offer the peace and quiet of a private home.

We purchased in Windsor Hills because it is a first class resort, and is the closest resort to Disney that offers private homes. In other words, a private home in Windsor Hills offers the minimum time driving, and the maximum peace and quiet.

We have never regretted purchasing our home in Windsor Hills, and many of our guests have reaffirmed our choice.

What makes this bungalow unique

* Canadian Owned - The owners, Judy & Michael (from Winnipeg, Canada) pride themselves as being honest, responsive (email is best), and easy to deal with.

* Recently renovated - including granite counter tops, new carpet, new leather furniture and 55" HDTV.

* South facing pool, spa, and deck area - Provides the maximum amount of sunshine all day, and all year. You didn’t come all the way to Florida to be forced to sit in the shade (or on the driveway)!!

* Private pool and spa - You do not have to share a common pool (and pool chairs) with the hundreds of Windsor Hills guests from the condos and town homes.

* Pool safety fence - many of our guests have young children, and we know that pool safety is a #1 priority. There is a safety fence around the pool, for maximum safety.

* Large poolside covered lanai area - Be outside by the pool, and have cover from the Florida sunshine or an afternoon shower (and there will be times when you need it!). The lanai is large enough for you, and all those staying at the villa.

* Walking distance to club house, tennis courts, basketball and beach volleyball courts - Not all villas in Windsor Hills are within walking distance to these facilities. Do you want to be driving your kids back and forth all day (just like you do at home)? Our villa is a short (5-8 minute) walk to enjoy all the fun.

* Extra security provided through a monitored house alarm system, reinforced sturdy door locks on all sliding glass doors, and a heavy duty floor safe for your valuables (passports, $$, laptop, etc) - Provides peace of mind that you, your family, and your valuables are safe while you are in the villa, or when you are away enjoying the theme parks, shopping, etc.

* 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms - Means that you have space for everyone and will never have to share your bathroom with your extended family or friends. Need we say more?

* One level - Over 2,000 sq feet of space, all on the same level, means there are no stairs

Just Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just wonderful. We had a great trip and this villa is an ideal place to stay while visiting WDW.

I would recommend the owners and their villa to anyone (and already have a time or two). We will likely return to Orlando in a few years and I hope we get to stay in this villa at that time.

Great place to relax after a long day at the parks.

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciate Michael allowing us to stay in their wonderful home. It was just as described and even better than the pictures can describe. The location is wonderful for the parks. Less than 15 minutes to the furthest away and just under 3 miles to the closest. We only used the 3 larger bedrooms so there was plenty of space for the 4 of us. The kids loved playing in the game room/garage and if not there was often found in the pool. The spa is great to end the day after all the walking you will do in the parks. You can not go wrong with choosing to stay in this house.

If I could make just one suggestion it would be to provide some basic instructions on how to operate the washer and dryer. They are newer models and we were not that familiar with them.

Fantastic stay, great location

  • 4 of 5

Spent two weeks at this lovely home with our family of five (with three kids ages 5, 7 & 11). Having previously stayed in other vacation rentals in the Kissimmee area with our kids four times prior, we found the location of Windsor Hills to be the best with it's very close proximity to Disney and the highway but also Universal, Legoland, outlets, airport all within a very reasonable distance as well as access to grocery, Target, Walmart and many, many restaurants and shops.

The Windor Hills community is very clean and well manintained. The gatehouse was manned by multiple guards and the resort felt very safe. The kids loved the expansive playground. The clubhouse pool was also a hit with its waterslide and small arcade ($) and movie theatre where you can sign up for private viewings of prob 100+ movies (free). I appreciated that there was a lifeguard at the pool and lots of chairs and loungers. The pool area could use a few more umbrellas perhaps.

The house. The house is very clean and well appointed. The beds and other furniture are very comfortable and in good repair and the home is well stocked with towels, kitchen equipment, games for the kids (air hockey, table tennis, Nintendo game cube), and of course the backyard pool (there were some pool toys available). It was fantastic to be "home" and just be in and out of the pool all day. Easy and relaxing.

We had a very minor issue (slow shower drain) and with an email to Michael back in Canada, the property manager quickly arrived and resolved the issue in an efficient and friendly manner (the responsiveness rivalled that of a five start resort!)

We can't say enough about our stay at Memory Lane villa and Windsor Hills. The house is such a comfortable space to relax after the parks with so much for the kids to do. We would recommend Memory Lane in a heartbeat.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

So glad we booked this home. The location is amazing, less than 15 min to the Disney parks, close to grocery stores, with guards at the gates (not that you probably need it). The pool was a godsend because we were there for Hurricane Matthew and the parks closed for a day. The kids didn't even notice, swam pretty much all day. There are plenty of towels, comfortable beds, a nice kitchen and good air conditioning. We saved hundreds by cooking meals at "home" and bringing in lunches. There are two strollers to use, a good cooler (for the water parks) and boogie boards for the pool or beach. With the washer/dryer, we could pack lightly and do some laundry, which made the trip easier.

Michael was in touch throughout the storm and the property managers were helpful too. If we ever go back to the Orlando area, we'll stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great property in excellent location, very close to the Disney parks.

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious property in excellent location. Very well kept with superb pool and jacuzzi to wake up to or to relax in after a day at the parks. Windsor Hills is a really nice well kept area with lots of facilities. Staying at this property with my family of five really made our holiday as it felt like coming home each day. Great communication with the owners Michael and Judy, and I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a holiday in central Florida.

Memory Lane was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 days. 6 adults and 3 children below 3 years of age.

This Home was the perfect size for all of us. The house is beautiful, very clean, and the pool/hottub is perfect. The pool area has sun all day, there is also an area where you can get in the shade if its too hot.

The location is ideal, Windsor Hills is less than 20 mins to Disney, and close to grocery stores, and shopping. The owners quickly respond to any questions if you have any.

The only regret we had was not booking 10 days instead of 7. We will be returning next year.
