About Lara Owings

My husband, 2 boys and I live in Maryland. We purchased our condo in 2005. Our condo is successful b/c we provide a real Home Away from Home feel for you and your families. I am a full time Realtor and Mom, so I do know how important family vacations are. We purchased our condo with the hopes to share it will families from all over in additions to our friends and families. Who doesn't visit Disney at least once in their life! We want our condo to make a wonderful home for you while you're on vacation.

Lara Owings purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lara Owings chose Disney / Orlando

The location of our particular condo within the neighborhood is superb as opposed to others -- in that it is close to the amenities and to the pool and club house. The screened patio/porch is ideally located to face open space area and walking path, and NOT a parking lot, thus giving you a quiet, more pleasant view. These facts should matter when choosing your unit.

very Nice

  • 4 of 5

We are snowbirds and have now stayed for the last three seasons at Lara's homeaway condo. This is a spacious, clean 2nd floor condo. The condo is located in one of the nicer resorts, close to Disney World and many nice restaurants. The resort itself has many amenities including a theater. It also has a poolside tiki bar. We hope to continue our seasonal stays for years to come. Cyndi & George

Loved this place !!!

  • 4 of 5

The place was beautiful !!! My only issue was the AC not being allowed to go under 75. The master bedroom for hot at night and made for uncomfortable sleeping . Besides that it was a gorgeous room .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We certainly want you to be comfortable during your stay. Had I known you were not cool enough I could have talked to the MC and had the AC Lowered a degree or two more. I will contact them today to see if we can adjust our minimum temperature to something cooler. Thank you for your stay and we certainly hope you return!!

Great condo and great value!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The condo was large and spacious, well-kept, and had everything we needed. We loved all the adorable towel folding that was prepared for us when we arrived. What a special touch! We enjoyed the swimming pool and even caught a movie in the on-site movie theater! The location was very convenient to Disney. We will definitely come back here when we are in Orlando!

The Windsor Palms Resort is nice, however, condo needs work.

  • 1 of 5

The resort is nice, clean, friendly and had lots of things to do for families. My low rating is specifically due to the condo we rented. Our biggest complaint was the cleaniness and smell. We arrived in the evening and walked into a dirty space (floors were not swept, dirty dishes displayed, broken furniture on patio, feces on side of vanity in restroom, broken tv remote, televisions were VERY small and not what was displayed in pictures, furniture was very worn and stained). I immediately tried to contact owner, but she was out of the country, so I called number displayed in manual but it was disconnected. I went through my emails and found our reservation/confirmation and left a message for housekeeping. We cleaned the condo as best as we could until we received a call back from housekeeping. After speaking with a somewhat rude lady ( she said, "I know there is broken furniture on patio, but what would you like me to do it about it? Go to Walmart in the rain and get you a new chair?). She did send a cleaning person, while we were at the pool. When we arrived back to the condo, we could smell the bleach all the way outside. I believe the cleaning person was making a point. We had to stay out until it dissipated. We could not figure out the musty smell that was in the condo until the air conditioner (?) started leaking all over the floor. Again I called maintenance left a message, but didn't hear back. So we put a bucket under the leak. The next day a man knocks on the door says he was there to fix the leak. He opened the door to the air conditioner closet and said, "gross, this is old, dirty and outdated and needs to be replaced." The whole system was clogged so he took the filter with him. During our stay we all had sore throats and our clothes smelled old and musty. This was due to the dirty, old filter and moldy water that was leaking in the closet. I have yet to hear from the owner, as I contacted her twice, sending emails and pictures. Lastly, I know that when you rent a condo you are responsible for soap, paper towels, toilet paper etc., but every time we rent a condo there is always a welcome basket of 2 dish tablets, roll of paper towels, soap etc. There was nothing in this condo, which was difficult because we were tired when we arrived. So we had to run to the store at night.

I do want to say that my family rented a condo in a different building and it was clean, modern and the owner was very nice.

Owner's Response: I have had our condo for over 12 years and the MC that takes care of it has done so for 10. We put our trust into the MC to take care of the guests and we do the bookings and pay the bills. The calendar is always full of vacationing families and the reviews after this one reflect the state the condo is typically in. Clean and Very Well Kept. I can't attest to all the matters raised here but I do know that this is the first review of this sort we've ever received. The MC addressed matters they were informed about right away and some matters noted here were never told to the MC. The AC unfortunately did get a clog and the HVAC person came and fixed it right away. The furniture is not stained nor worn. And future guests should know that the TVs ARE the same as are in the photos. Please do stay in our condo if you're looking for a rental that is close to the Pool, Club house and Parks. The MC keeps the condo clean and well kept and the MC knows they have my authorization as an owner to take care of any issues that arise. The condo is tastefully decorated and a great value for guests looking for a spacious Home Away From Home close to Disney. I had the vacation condo listed here on vacation rentals and have a Link to 41 other reviews of Families that have stayed at our condo. If anyone would like to see the other 41 reviews please do contact me. Thanks!!

Nice property with plenty of space

  • 4 of 5

Property was nice, pool and club house were also nice. Location was great close to parks, food and shopping. Spacious with full kitchen made this a much better stay for our family of 5 than a small hotel room. We would stay there again. Only recommendation would be to have dish clothes for doing dishes and wiping counters and tables. We had hand towels but no dish cloth.
