About the property

Home/Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) close to clubhouse



This sunny, spacious and beautifully appointed villa will be an ideal ‘Home at Disney’ for your vacation. If you want to be in the closest 5* Gated Resort in a 5* home, look here! This is one of the few villas offering a stand-alone hot tub with the private pool. The villa is decorated and furnished to a high standard, with many recent updates/upgrades, including brand new air conditioning, new pool heater, flat screen TVs in each of the bedrooms, tiled flooring through the main living area (bedrooms still warmly carpeted) and a new jungle-themed games room. Situated on a quiet circle and not overlooked to the rear, it is a short stroll around the corner to the clubhouse, where you can enjoy the Olympic-sized pool, pool-side bar, sundries shop, exercise room or take a shuttle to the Disney property.

Our Home at Disney is the perfect place to return to at the end of a long day with all the comforts of home. You can relax around the pool with a glass of wine and plan your next adventure. There’s so much to see and do in the area that you will need an occasional day to simply chill out in the home while the children have fun in the private heatable swimming pool.

In our convenient, well equipped home you can relax in the private pool and hot tub, play PS2 games, pool or air hockey with your family and enjoy wireless high speed internet access. Special child features include a Disney-themed room, board games and a PS2 PlayStation. We also share children’s books and movies for your use.

The two master bedrooms each have bathrooms en suite. Both have King-sized beds, and one has a large jetted soaking tub. The third bathroom sits between the two bedrooms with the twin beds and all are convenient to the Great Room. Guests may easily access one of the bathrooms right off the lanai, convenient to the pool.



Windsor Palms is a gated community offering its guests free unlimited use of these welcoming facilities - large swimming pool and spa, children's pool and playground, BBQ areas, gym, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and its very own 58 seat movie theatre. At the clubhouse as a guest you will also find a games room with pool tables, table tennis, bicycles, Wii room and a video games arcade.

Located just a few minutes from Disney’s parks and close to shops and restaurants, this is a perfect base for your trip to the Sunshine State and a relaxing haven from the crowds after a day in the parks. Find time to enjoy some of the many activities Kissimmee has to offer - ballooning, parasailing, wildlife parks, go-karts, spa treatments and much, much more!



This is our family vacation home and we can only spend a few weeks here each year until we retire. We hope you enjoy the feel of the home as much as we do. Please come, relax and enjoy time with your family. Borrow a paperback and return the next year to exchange for another one.

About Terri Martinez

My husband and I are from Rockville, Maryland. I am a Maryland native and Albert is originally from San Antonio, Texas.

We met dancing over 20 years ago and still take every opportunity to dance together or with our daughter. Our daughter is young and we have found ourselves visiting Disney a couple times a year where we enjoy seeing her experience the magic every time.

Terri Martinez purchased this house in 2011

Why Terri Martinez chose Kissimmee

For us, when we stayed on Disney property we sometimes felt it wasn't cost effective to go visit another park or to stay away from the park and just swim and relax for a couple days.

So we tried staying at a pool villa. We had already chosen to stay in homes rather than hotels in our other travels and always found it to expand on the experience.

Our favority parts about staying in a pool villa are waking up and having breakfast together in our pajamas, playing in the pool together as a family and,before or after our little one is in bed, staying up late cuddled up to watch a movie together or relaxing in the hot tub after a fun-filled day.

We chose Windsor Palms because it offered a perfect combination for us - it is safe (gated and guarded), has beautiful private and sunny pool homes, offers a great club house and ammenities, and is so close to the attractions we want to experience.

What makes this house unique

I love the décor in our home. We are closest to the Animal Kingdom and our daughter adores monkeys and cheetahs and lions, so we thought it would be fun to have a bit of the jungle in our home. The games room is our zebra room and our master bedroom has lion bedding. I think the little touches of jungle are fun and add to the experience of being truly on vacation.

We also love having the pool right and lanai right off the great room. While it is most fun to play in the pool with my family, there are times I need to work. On the occasion we have to do some work while away I can let my daughter swim while I sit in the shade with my computer, have a coffee and focus on both work and her safety.

I also love how close we are to the clubhouse. When we want to meet folks at the pool or take in a movie on a rainy day, it is great to walk just around the corner to get there. The community is great for walking. My cousin and I take a morning walk and the resort is safe a lovely for taking a brisk walk or a leisurely stroll.

Great Property

Owner's Response: Dear Kevin, Thank you for your kind review. I am glad you found the home as expected. And I very much appreciate the short 'punch list' of things you shared with me that need attention - bowed pans, a stovetop element needing replacement, etc. As you said, as a rental homeowner yourself, we may not know about these things between our personal visits if they are not apparent during a property manager inspection. It was a huge help to be advised so that we can address these right away. I will be visiting shortly and so this is of particular help in preparing for my visit. Thank you again for taking the time and effort to share. We would be absolutely delighted to have you return. Warm regards, Terri Martinez

Great Location, comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here, location was great, lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Villa is clean, comfortable and has everything we need for a chilled out holiday. The hot tub was great to relax in after a day at the parks. This villa was recommended by a family member and I have nothing but praise for it. We would come back here in a heartbeat.

Fantastic villa, close to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 1-14 September, the villa was very comfortable for 5 adults. There was a well equipped kitchen (which we often made dinner in), plenty of room to seat us comfortably and there is a large relaxing lounge. The beds were also very comfortable, the pool and the hot tub were great for relaxing.

The villa is well located to lots of restaurants and supermarkets on the 192, it is also around a 10 minute drive into Disney which is ideal after a long day at the parks.

Unfortunately, during our stay we experienced hurricane Irma, however, the owners were fantastic at communicating with us and were in constant contact to reassure us.

Even with the hurricane we thoroughly enjoyed our stayed here, the owners were great and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Wendy! After all the communication we had around the hurricane and preparedness I feel like we have had quite the virtual friendship. We love to cook and bake when on vacation so try to prepare the kitchen for anything our guests may need. I'm glad you found it as equipped as you needed. We hope you will come again and would most certainly welcome you returning for another fun, but perhaps slightly less exciting get-away. We are delighted that our home provided what you needed for a relaxing vacation despite the hurricane experience topping it off (perhaps literally with the many shingles torn off). Thank you again for taking a look at the damage after the storm and giving us a sense of calm that the hurricane left minimal damage to our home and in our resort in comparison with many other areas. We are also thankful for our property managers that jumped on the repairs so quickly. Warm regards, Terri and Albert

Perfect Place for our Orlando Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our biggest requirement for a vacation home was enough space to unwind after surviving busy days in the theme parks. This home delivered wonderfully. Plenty of bedroom and communal space (and cheerfully decorated), numerous in-home entertainment options, safe location, and everything in great working condition . The backyard pool was a real bonus and was enjoyed by our three sons daily. The kitchen had all the tools and accessories we needed to prepare meals.

It was nice being away from any main thoroughfares but still within a few miles of restaurants and stores. While we opted to drive on our excursions it was nice to know that a shuttle was an option for some of these adventures had we so desired. All-in-all we had a great vacation and being able to stay in Terri's home was a big part of the success.

Owner's Response: Dear Andy, We are so delighted your family enjoyed your experience with the home and that it met your expectations. As much fun as the parks are (and they are amazing!), it is such a relief to come home to your own private home and to have enough room and options to really unwind and relax with your family. We are so glad you found our home to be the end-of-day oasis we intended it to be. Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with our future guests. And please do bring your family back - we love our return guests! Best Regards, Terri
