About Jim Van Winssen
We live in North Carolina and Canada and own this as a family retreat.
Jim Van Winssen purchased this House in 2008
Why Jim Van Winssen chose Citrus Ridge
Closeness to Disney was the most important factor. We had stayed in a number of vacation rental homes on prior visits to Florida. We loved the result, lots of togetherness for the family but enough privacy. A lot of communities are a lot farther out. From here, one traffic light and you can be into the Disney road complex. We liked the gated community, the fact that this was a newly built area with the best clubhouse and many extra facilities.
What makes this House unique
The full lanai offering shade from the sun and shelter from the rain when having a leisurely morning coffee made this unique for us. We still have no regrets almost six years after having purchased this villa.

Amazing House Close to Disney Parks
We stayed here for two weeks - we are a family of five. We have always stayed on Disney Property but after staying here we will never stay onsite again. We loved the house, It was so spacious, it felt like everyone had their own section of the house to their self which was great with 2 teenagers. We loved the game room and played pool almost every day. The house is close to the parks (you can even see and hear the Disney fireworks at night from the house). We especially enjoyed cooling off in the pool after the hot days at the park. We went for bike rides around the community, it was great for my 10 year old as there was hardly any traffic. It was a nice way to unwind after dinner. I cooked many meals in the house and the kitchen was well equipped. I would definitely stay here again. The only thing I would suggest is bringing beach towels if you are going to the water parks. The owner requests that you not bring theirs (which is understandable), but Disney charges $2 per towel - we went 3 times with 5 people - it added up quickly. It was a great place to relax after long days at the park we can't wait to come back!
Great Property and a Perfect Location
During the school break in March our family and some friends stayed at this property in Windsor Hills Florida. The house was well appointed with all the amenities you expect in a vacation home. The bedrooms, kitchen and living areas were all in great shape and the heated pool was great to come back to in the evening after a long day at the parks. There are a number of grocery stores in the area and if you are up for a run to Costco it is about 30 minutes away. We could not have asked for a better location as it was 10 minutes from Disney and 20 minutes from Universal. It was also conveniently close to the I4 which made it under an hour to get to Busch Gardens in Tampa and just about 11/4 hours to get to Dunedin for a Blue Jays game. Our friends even went to see the Lightning vs Leafs which was a lot of fun. The next time we return to Orlando I hope this property is available because it made for a pretty worry free stay.
A five star resort home, spectacular.
Having a screened in pool and Jacuzzi, as well as the game room were wonderful for the kids when we were at the house relaxing. The house and amenities were everything we needed to enjoy a rare family vacation to Orlando.
Enjoyed our stay. Three couples plus a teenager stayed and it suited us perfectly with the four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Stayed while our older sons stayed at Disney and played at ESPN Wide World of Sports -location was terrific. Would have liked to have more towels. Bathrooms were provided with just one partial roll of toilet paper so an extra one would have been nice along with a paper towel roll and a few coffee filters. Gate codes to get into the community pool area were annoying. All in all it was a great location with clean and beautiful accommodations.
Amazing 1st VRBO experience! We're hooked and will do it again!
Clean! Convenient distance to Disney and other shopping. Only drawback is pool solar covers made it inconvenient to enjoy the pool. The outside pool/sitting area needs to be cleaned (lots of bugs and spider webs).
Fabulous Accommodations close to everything: February 2017
This stunning home was even nicer then the pictures on the website indicated. It was spacious, well equipped,, clean and the perfect size for 8 people. Having the pool and games room provided for hours of fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!
Other Activities: Shopping, Miniature Golf, Basketball Court
