We are a family of four who permanently live in beautiful BC, Canada. We immigrated to Canada just over 6 years ago from England and we are still in awe of our chosen home; the mountains, lakes and rivers never fail to inspire us. We enjoy the outdoors and vacationing and exploring together and are the proud owners of a hypoallergenic Cockerpoo named Cooper. We own and run our own marketing company and enjoy working together to build our business. Luckily for us we have other family who have also immigrated to Canada which makes living in British Columbia even more wonderful…there is nothing like family!
Stephanie Jones purchased this villa in 2010
I have vacationed in Orlando since I was 16 and thoroughly enjoyed visiting all the theme parks as well as enjoying all the stunning National Parks in the surrounding areas and beaches. I enjoyed the area so much that we even had a ‘Disney-fied honeymoon’!
We looked at many communities located around the theme park areas as we wanted a home where we could take our 2 little girls and enjoy the magic of Disney and Universal. Windsor Hills fit our needs perfectly as it was one of the closest communities to Disney (just a 5 minute drive takes you onto ‘World Drive’ where you can access all the Disney parks, and in 15 minutes you will be at Universal!) Windsor Hills is also a newer yet well established community with the style and polish you expect from a 5 star resort and yet is small enough to be able to walk around and use all its many amenities. The club house area is elegant and has lots to offer families: games room, large movie theater, huge heated pool with water slide and very large private hot tub, shop, ping pong table, 3 children’s parks, lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball, lighted basket ball courts as well as a golf practice putting/chipping green. There is a Windsor hills shuttle to the parks and it is next door to the Mystic Dunes golf course (#2 rated golf course in Orlando) so golfers do not have travel far for a world class green.
When we had our children we decided that hotels were not the way to go for maximum family enjoyment. They lacked the facilities and space we needed, and with having young children we were unable to fully enjoy our evenings (that all changed with having our villa as we can sit out, swim and enjoy the spa whilst our girls sleep safely with us on hand…everyone is happy).When we were looking for a vacation rental home one of our priorities was to have as much privacy as we could. Lots of the vacation homes in all communities are surrounded back to back and side to side with no privacy from direct neighbours. When our villa became available we were thrilled to see that it had only one neighbour to the side and open green fields at the rear which affords the privacy we so value.
Location in the community was also important. We wanted a home that we could easily walk to the club house and parks, which can be a little challenging with very young children. Our home was extremely well positioned and fit our needs perfectly as it is only a 4-5 minutes walk. Also we wanted a home that we could put our own decorating ideas into. Our home was empty (lots of new vacation owners inherit the old furniture and hence some homes look a little tired). We saw a great opportunity to bring in a professional design company and worked closely with them to create a home that is extra-special. We wanted our home to appeal to like minded families who see the value in having extra details: themed bedrooms for the kids and those young at heart and a fully loaded and air conditioned games room were a must. As well, a large open eat-in kitchen – and family room makes our home spacious and social. It also has a formal dining room and formal living room, so when we vacation with our extended family we all have plenty of space to spread out. The large pool with spa was also on our list and having a covered patio area makes the outdoor space so useable in the heat of the summer months.
The house was great beautifully decorated. The rooms look just like the pictures. It was easy finding it and very close to Disney. On two of the clear nights we did see the fireworks. Our pool was heated we did figure out how to keep it heated and also the hot tub. At times it was cold but would heat back up. We found the guys at the gate to be funny and friendly tho we did not have extra visitors.
The only negatives about the house were that it needs updating on some of there stuff. In the game room the air hockey table doesn't work. One of the pool sticks out of the only two had a crack in it. All the play stations are play station 2s and didnt work at all and most of the games were missing cases and wouldn't turn on. The Ihome in one of the master bedrooms is for an iPhone 4 so that was no use to us as well. In the kitchen everything was great but the pots and pans need some updating.
My other issue with the house and I picked it because it said there was plenty of baby stuff and toys for my little ones. While there were a few toys the baby stuff was lacking. I have an 8 month old with me so I couldn't travel with all her stuff. The baby stuff in the house needs some definite updating. The pack and play was fine but the stroller for a smaller baby was broken and taped. I would be embarrassed to use it the bouney is a vibrating chair the would touch the floor and was very old and useless to me. The high chair was fine on the older side but still ok could use a good scrub down. The house has no carpet on the first floor so for crawling babies it was very hard to find a safe place for her with no sauscer or bouncer and I found no toys for her to play with.
The only other issue we had were little ants! But we understand its Florida and it can happen. We had the exterminator come out twice. For the laundry room and the master bath and bathroom on first floor. Other then updating and baby stuff the house was beautiful fun to stay in pretty private with the house for sale next to use. It's on a corner so there's only one neighbor if and when that house sells. Disney, universal, and lego land were fabulous. Great trip lots of memory's.
Thanks Stephanie - Great location - Great house even with the minor glitches with the two tv's that mgnt fixed after a few days. The kids really enjoyed the themed rooms and the pool heat was great. The only bad was the guards at the gate, they were rude and gave us problems from day one. Expect long waits daily to get in at the gate especially day 1 and if you have family coming to see you, then they have to park off property and you have to pick them up as they can only give out 5 passes and they don't have a parking area onsite. I can't give 5 stars due to the major hassles at the gate even though the house and staff were great.
Ps The fireworks can hardly be seen thru a tree across the street and not worth watching like reviews stated.
We had an amazing time in Disney last weekend and the accommodations were way beyond what we expected. We had never used VRBO before and Stephanie made it very easy for us to enjoy our time there without having to worry about anything. The house was in an excellent resort and felt very safe. Close to anything that you could need and had everything to make the stay relaxing. We only wish we had more time in the house to enjoy it. We will definitely be returning to Disney-licous!!!
Having arrived we did find everything ok as office was closed but we had lock codes to retrieve our details to the house the owners Stephanie is very lovely to deal with can't say so about the management team as we did have a problem with the pool not being heated when we rang them just before 4pm we was told to read out temperature to them and was told that is the maximum it can go to sorry it was very cold so was hot tub which I told them I then rang owner to explain this and she phoned my husband straight back we have rented villas many times so knew there was something not right,management company was called again by owner who came next day he was very rude looked at temperature and said there's nothing I can do it's not meant to be like a bath it set to maximum did not like his attitude at all he then put hose pipe in to top up pool as it was very low came back next day to take it out,and that evening pool was heated don't know what he done but we are not stupid I do not think it was heated in the first place.please do not let this put you of renting this house though only fault we found with this house is the mattresses in the pirate bedroom was very lumpy maybe children would not notice but we had teenagers in there overall we would rent again but would not like to deal with that rude man agin.but Stephanie you are a great owner.
As we were planning our first family trip to Disney, we looked at tons of listings for house rentals with themed bedrooms for my 3 kids (ages 4-7). Many of them listed that they had themed bedrooms but it ended up meaning they had a Disney bedspread or lamp. Once we saw the pictures of the themed bedrooms with wall murals and decor that really created a Disney feel to the room, we were hooked and, once we arrived, we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, we loved the place we had choose to stay at. The house and pool was clean and the lawn was well maintained. When we discovered ants the first night we arrived, they were taken care of the next day by pest control and there were no other problems that arose.
There were 10 of us (6 adults and 4 kids - ages 4-11) to stay in this house and we had plenty of space. The kids adored the rooms which gave choices for both boys and girls. One of my daughters especially loved the princess room with carriage top beds. The game room was used almost every night by both the kids and the adults. As we departed, we all commented how we would all be coming back here for our next Disney vacation and spreading the word to others.
Stephanie and Simon were excellent to work with and when Hurricane Matthew hit and delayed our departure for two days, they were quick to help us out and arrange with the management company for us to stay the extra two nights until our flights left. We can not thank them enough for helping to relieve the stress of the situation.
Besides the house being spacious, comfortable, clean, and fun with the game room and pool, the house was surprisingly close to all the Disney parks, Seaworld, and Universal. This made the mornings better since we didn't have to get up quite as early on the days we attended the parks. The house was also close to Walmart, Publix and tons of restaurants and stores. We also like the gated community amenities with a movie theatre, playgrounds and swimming pool.
Overall, our stay was a dream. Thank you Stephanie and Simon. We will be looking to stay here again in the future.
We loved the theme rooms, beautifully done. The house was clean, and well appointed with needed supplies. We were close to theme parks. The security seemed almost excessive, but we figure that would be preferred by most. It is important to know that if you put the address in the gps, it takes you to an entrance just beside the place that is locked. You are so close, but no entrance or exit there.
Personally I enjoyed the escape from air-conditioning in the garage turned game room. The mini AC unit does not work well, but that was not a problem for us.
It was so nice to have a pool. And everyone had plenty of room. We would definitely consider staying there again if our group was the size it was.
Our stay there definitely contributed to our magical time!
