About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Elegantly appointed lakefront home in the “Reserve” area of Windsor Hills Resort. a premium gated community, located just minutes from Disney’s main gates. A well decorated home that is also very comfortable to stay in and is ideal for multiple families who want to visit Disney together. This outstanding 6 bedroom, 4 bath home includes 3 king sized bedrooms, 1 queen bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms, which provides room for up to 12. As you enter the front door of the home into the formal living room you will appreciate the beautiful finishing touches that leads into a warm, open dining area. The lavish family room with comfortable leather furniture allows your family to relax and watch TV on our 46” TV Set. The large, friendly eat-in kitchen with cherry cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile floors and granite countertops, will be appreciated by your family whether preparing your meals or dining at "home" while you are on vacation.

For hours of entertainment your kids can also enjoy the large game room which includes a pool table, air hockey and foosball table. A swimming pool is right out back for winding down on those long, steamy, Florida afternoons!

Upstairs is the large master bedroom suite which has its own bathroom with a roomy walk-in shower, garden tub, double sinks and a private toilet. A 2nd king bedroom enjoys its own private bathroom also. The other upstairs bedrooms are served by a large bathroom decorated with bright, tropical fish and include 2 sinks, private shower and a private toilet. To round out the bedrooms is a queen sized bedroom on the main level, with a full bath located right next door. All the bedrooms have cheerful window treatments, bright accent walls, TV sets with gorgeous ceiling fans to help you sleep in cool, comfort.

Slip out the sliding glass doors from the kitchen to your own private pool and Lanai out back. This screened in area comes complete with 2 sets of tables and chairs that you can relax in around the pool/spa or use the 4 lounge chairs for soaking up the Florida sun. The pool area offers a stunning view of the lake with a beautiful fountain which is lit up at night. The sunsets from our lanai are especially nice while enjoying a cool beverage! There's a really nice open lawn area behind our home, which is perfect for the kids if they want to play soccer, tag or throw a frisbee around. Look past the wrought iron fence at edge of your large backyard where many birds and waterfowl live (sorry- no alligators!) in the vast conservancy area that runs along the entire length of Windsor Hills “Reserve Area” western border.

This home truly delivers on comfort and having plenty of room for your family to spread out and relax after walking around at the parks all day.

About The Owner

Greg and Wendy Smalley live and work in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They have 4 grown children and 4 young grandsons under the age of 5! Grandchild number #5 is on the way! We enjoy traveling this great country as much as possible. We love being outdoors relaxing, grilling, cooking and eating good food. We are huge fans of the Iowa Hawkeyes, our children and grandchildren. We have 1 very spoiled Golden Retriever named Zeva and 2 crazy kitties named Alley and Bobbie.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Disney / Orlando

We love travelling to Florida and visiting Disney World, especially when it's cold back here in the Midwest. We felt that Windsor Hills was the nicest resort and best location for a vacation home here in Kissimmee. We especially enjoy the sunset views out behind our home on the lake with the fountain! This is our happy place and we hope you and your family will enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

Windsor Hills has a beautiful community center which has undergone renovations completed in October 2014. It has a very nice, zero entry pool with attended water slide, game room and movie theater for your kids. Many playground areas located through out the resort that are pleasant for your kids and we really enjoy the pretty lake behind our home with the beautiful fountain which is lit up at night. It's very quiet and peaceful where our home is located in Windsor Hills and you are not looking into the back of someone else's lainai when you are enjoying the pool/patio/spa area. It is very easy to travel to and from the many restaurants, shops and parks with the location of the resort.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Greg and Wendy's home and were impressed at the this great home. We were 8 adults and 7 children (two were 8 months), but everyone had a bed to sleep in. The sleeping arrangements were great. This home will accommodate multi-families. The home was very clean and the home is furnished beautifully. We were about 15 to 20 minutes from Disney World and area was gated and very private. Would stay in this home again. They management service that Mr. Smalley uses is great and a call gets you anything you need. We seem to leave the park earlier toward the end of our stay for the pool. Thank you for letting us use your home, your home made our stay better than expected.

Home Away From Home - But Better

  • 5 of 5

We've spent 10 -12 days at Greg & Wendy's house each of the past five years; it is always inviting to arrive and open the door. The place is always ready for us, no problems, the check-in process goes as smoothly and quickly as any resort. It has always been us and 'the kids'; four adults and four children that have ranged from ages 3 to 10.

There is very little traffic by the house, it is quiet and private; you don't even realize there are houses next door, and there are none behind; the open space behind goes for hundreds of feet and overlooks a very nice (fenced) lake that has a fountain and night lighting. Driving to all of the attractions you want is easy and quick (including in/out of the development and on the roads); even the airport across town is easy to access, as is Tampa to the west and the state park where the manatees winter-over (to the north). The main road (a half mile north) has the full range of restaurants, from Pizza Hut to steak and seafood houses, as well as grocery stores (Super Target and Publix) and Walgreens. When there is time, the house's screened-in pool and spa are great for use day and night. One of the community's several playgrounds is nearby and the clubhouse includes a large zero-entry pool with an attended waterslide for kids and adults, as well as my favorite, the gym; all within walking distance. If you want to play a round or just hit a bucket of balls, there is a nice golf course south of the development . Enjoy a safe and peaceful nighttime walk through the development before bedtime to finish your day. The size of the house, and the bedroom layout, provides good opportunity for privacy and 'me time' as needed.

The listing descriptions and photos accurately reflect the property. Greg and Wendy are great to work with. Yes, we highly recommend the place and will be back.

My Disney adventure - Group of twelve

  • 4 of 5

Daydream Escape is located two homes from a gated entrance at Windsor Hills Resort. Unfortunately this entrance is only available for use by home owners, so basically you are at the back of the resort. Because of the location of the home, the resort facilities are not within walking distance. (We were really to busy to use the facilities anyway) On the bright side the house is basically on a dead end road except for a few owners that use the back gate, so traffic is minimal. The home itself is as described. The home is roomy, we had a group of 12 and we had enough space for everyone. The pool and spa overlook a small fenced in pond, the kids loved the pool. The pool was also private enough so neighbors on either side were virtually unnoticeable. The kitchen was great for the rare occasion we were actually back from the theme parks to use it. The home is dated, not out of date but some of the furniture starting to show wear, some of the bedroom televisions are small tube TV's, and the gaming system is a play-station 2 etc. etc.. The two eight year olds were disappointed by the play-station. (No games, and good luck finding games for this old system.) We spent so much time at parks this was not an issue, especially for the adults. We had 3 cars, and the driveway will only accommodate 2 cars. Parking on the street didn't seem to be a problem since the traffic was minimal because we were at the back of the park. Location is extremely convenient, most Disney parks are within 15 to 20 minute drive. Restaurants, convenient stores and coffee shops all within five to ten minutes. Overall I am satisfied with Daydream escape, I would use this rental again and I would also recommend to large families.

Wonderful family vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

I am late writing this review but I wanted to submit my review anyway as this home was a huge reason our vacation was a success!! This was our first family vacation with three of our four grown children and their families and it more than served our needs. The 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms were just what we needed. Everyone had their own spaces and the teens had space to get away from everyone which is always a plus. The pool was exceptional and we found that we spent most of our time between the pool area and the wonderful kitchen. The living room provided ample space for the youngest of the grandkids to play with his trains while the older ones found the pool table entertaining. The only down side to the game room is that it gets really warm in there!! We found the owners very easy to work with and we did not experience any problems while we were there. Working with the off-site check in was not the easiest process as they did not have the house ready when we arrived and we had to go back. But after that, no problems at all. If you are looking for the use of the resort facilities, think again. The facilities are pretty cheesy and we were very happy that we had our own pool and other full amenities. You won't need anything else except the parks or beaches if you choose this home, it really was a treat for us all!

Beautiful Home - Owners wonderful to work with

We stayed in this home for our last trip to Florida for a Disney vacation and it was just wonderful. The owners were wonderful to work with, the house was clean, and it was beautifully furnished. Would definitely rent this home again! Thank you so much for a fabulous vacation!

Owners add that special touch to this Florida rental home

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!!!! What a beautiful home. Walking into the front door and seeing all the beautiful decorations and how the dishes are set on the table, just made it feel like home! The location was perfect not having any homes behind you. It was very quiet.

The 6 bedrooms and 4 baths were perfect for the (3) families. It was very relaxing either in the TV room or if you wanted some quiet down time, the living room was comfortable. There were plenty of bath towels for everyone. All appliances worked great.

The pool area and hot tub was fantastic after coming home from a hot (and, I mean HOT) day at the parks. Security did a great job. It was very safe! And, the development is very clean and groomed.

And, wow, is your development close to Disney. We never felt like, uggggghhhhh, how long do I have to drive to Disney. You are there within 10 minutes.

But, the added touch is the owners of this rental home. There are so many rental units to choose from and these owners were so accommodating, got back to me within a 12-24 hour time frame, when it came to the final price, they didn't worry about adding the 32 cents to the bill. It is little things like this that make this property stand out.
