1. It’s simple. I love Disney. I love the characters, the views of Cinderella castle as you drive through the resort, the rides, and most of all…the magic. Disney vacations, unlike any others, are able to provide such a sense of nostalgia, happiness, and comfort. The greatest gift is being able to have a home so close to Disney and share this experience with others. I love to help people plan their Disney vacations, there is so much to see and do, I’ve been to Disney every year of my life and still haven’t seen it all! It’s always an adventure to explore the new areas of magic that have yet to be discovered.
Sara purchased this townhome in 2008
2. It takes just 2 turns out of the Windsor Palms community and you’re driving on Disney property and staring at the huge Tree of Life at the Animal Kingdom Park. I absolutely love being able to be on Disney property so quickly and see all the great icons that makes Disney so famous! After a long day at the park, it’s a very quick drive home to relaxation & a warm private pool! The community amenities cannot be beat; there is a movie theatre, sundry shop, ATM, BBQ stations, huge swimming pool & hot tubs, arcade room, pool table, and a wonderful clubhouse filled with lots of information on local attractions and dining. The safety of Windsor Palms is remarkable, the guards are always extremely attentive and even as an owner, our passes are inspected during each visit.
3. From the outside, our townhome resembles many other townhomes in Windsor Palms, but once you step inside you realize it’s remarkably different. Impeccable detail has been taken in the decoration, complete with plenty of artwork, genuine leather furniture, accent walls, and decorative accents that make you feel as if you’re in a luxury hotel. Each bedroom has been uniquely decorated, our favorite being the “kid’s” room, which features a Disney theme. The bright blue walls and authentic Disney artwork make you feel like you are still in the Magic Kingdom! Our management company is available 24/7, so you have the comfort and security knowing you have access to professionals if anything may need attention.
Overall we had a great 4 night stay. At check In we had to wait past 5pm as the cleaners were running late but we spent that time getting supplies and groceries.
Everything was clean and condo easily handled our group of five adults and two children.
Splash pool is great and main pool is short stroll.
Would stay here again.
Overall, this was a good place to stay. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. Even though we had a few problems, she quickly tried to resolve them. When I'm renting a vacation house, I like to know the positives and the negatives. Positives: Very spacious for four adults; Well stocked kitchen; Nice little pool on back patio; Attractive decor; Gated community; Convenient to all Disney parks; Within just a couple minutes drive to Panera, Super Target, Chewy's, Pollo Tropicale, and other great restaurants; Quiet neighborhood. Negatives: Our sheets were not clean and we had to wash them and place them back on the beds; Sopping wet towels were left in the washer and dryer. The owner was very upset that this happened, and she called the property manager. They came out the next day and washed the towels, dried them, folded them, and put them away. It was still super gross that the sheets were dirty from the previous guests; My daughter was bitten by black ants that were in her bed. I called the owner, and she sent someone out to spray; The sheets desperately need to be replaced. They are very thin, used, and even ripped; The bedspread in the master bedroom is actually torn and in bad shape; The mattress in the master bedroom is uncomfortable and dipped in on each side. It was like sleeping in a little valley. The dishwasher sounds like a jet plane, so we only washed dishes as we were leaving so we didn't have to hear it; The sliding glass door doesn't work well. It kept coming off the tracks and we had to keep adjusting it. If the owner had a different cleaning service who actually cleaned and changed sheets, the place would be much nicer. It's simply gross to pull back the sheets and actually "see" where others had been sleeping before you arrived. This owner would be served well to get a new cleaning services.
Beyond anything we could have hoped for. It was the best vacation and vacation home we have ever been in. The house is incredibly clean and comfortable and the overall location is outstanding. The splash pool was absolutely perfect for a cool down after a long day at the disney parks. The house exceeded any and all expectations. Sarah seemed incredibly nice and very attentive as well as all of the staff at windsor palms. We were blown away and can't wait to return to this location again!
I absolutely loved this property! It's within a 5-10 minute drive of restaurants & shops, and less than 15 minutes from Disney. We really enjoyed the small pool out back -- it was perfect for my 5 & 8 year olds. Everything was clean and organized and comfortable. I had a question about something and I emailed Sara about it, and she called within minutes to help -- she was very nice and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again!
We had a wonderful stay here. The kids had an amazing time as did the adults. The beds were comfortable and everything was super clean. It was very close to all things that we needed to be close to I.e. Disney, universal studios, etc. If we travel to the area in the future, we will definitely check to see if this unit is available.
The location of this gated community was perfect. Far enough away from the bustle of Disney, but close enough to get to the parks in about 10 minutes. The clubhouse is really nice and we enjoyed the outdoor pool. It was clean, the perfect temperature, and had lots of chairs so the grown ups could lounge while kids play. There is a coin operated video game area and sundry shop to buy chips and stuff. There is also a nice playground there and a sand volleyball court and nice basketball court, which was well utilized most times we drove by.
The condo itself is pretty nice. Some areas are starting to show its wear and the glass door out to the private small pool is very hard to open. Maybe the tracks just need cleaned? Even though it was 85 degrees outside the pool at the unit was too cold for the kids to play in. If this is a concern to you I suggest you contact the owner ahead of time and see about the pool heat and getting the door fixed. We were too tired most days to do much more than eat and sleep after our long Disney park days.
The beds are all very comfortable, which is one of the most important aspects! There are nice linens and lots of pillows. Wash clothes and hand towels are in the laundry closet too. It is very nice to have laundry on hand. Just remember if you are staying any number of days that you will need to bring your own laundry soap, hand soap, TP, tissues, shampoo, etc. And don't forget 13 gallon kitchen trash bags. There is a grocery store a mile or two away, but I found it to be pricey and crowded.
Make sure to read the nice handy notebook the owner/manager has left for you in order to get the internet password and find out about things like trash times and pickup. I had a hard time figuring out the television because the set up is much different than what we use. The book will help you. The remotes don't seem to work well though.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and I am very happy with the value and care we received. We would come again.
