ParkHopper Pad has an amazing location! Of the 8 condo buildings in Windsor Hills, it is in the building that is next to the pool and clubhouse. The building is only a few steps from the back entrance to the pool and clubhouse area. While the building faces the pool, the balcony is on the side of the building. It is located around the corner of the building from the pool, and features a beautiful view of the lake. This allows quiet lake view time to be enjoyed on the balcony without any of the noise or distractions from the pool area.

This is our family's vacation home and we have added a lot of 'extras' to make it comfortable and enjoyable when we vacation in the area. We hope that you like it, too!

About ParkHopper Properties by Carolyn and Charles Hudson

ParkHopper Properties is owned by Carolyn and Charles Hudson. Originally from Mississippi, Birmingham, Alabama has been home for over 39 years. We are the parents of 5 adult children, and we now have LOTS of grandchildren. :o)

We cherish the memories we made on family trips to the Orlando area when our children were small. Now that they have their own families, they enjoy bringing their children to the same theme parks they enjoyed as children.

Two of our daughters worked as musical performers at Disney both in California and Florida, so even after our children were grown, we made many trips to Disney to see their shows. We have stayed in most of the Disney properties and some private rental properties over the years. Once we 'discovered' Windsor Hills, we never stayed anywhere else! It simply could not be beat for facilities and convenience.

In 2012 we decided to buy our first condo in Windsor Hills because we wanted to have a place available to bring our grandchildren. Because our family kept expanding with new grandchildren, we found we needed more room, so we purchased an additional units that suited our location requirements as they became available.

With owning multiple units and managing them ourselves, we found that refurbishing the units offered a creative outlet and managing them was somewhat like a part-time job. Now that we are retired (medical and teaching), we decided that managing additional units would be a suitable job for two retirees.

ParkHopper Properties now owns and manages a total of 7 condos in Windsor Hills. Five of them are in the building adjacent to the pool, and two are diagonally across the street from the pool building. Having all of the properties close together gives us the flexibility of having properties suitable for larger groups.

ParkHopper Properties by Carolyn and Charles Hudson purchased this condo in 2013

Why ParkHopper Properties by Carolyn and Charles Hudson chose Kissimmee

Our grandchildren LOVE the Windsor Hills pool. The older ones spend hours on the 2-story water slide, and the little ones will dabble all afternoon in the children's dancing waters play area. We wanted to find a unit that was close to the pool. When we saw this unit which is in the building closest to the pool and also has a beautiful view of the lake from the lanai, we knew we had found 'the one'.

What makes this condo unique

Our grandchildren love to come to our home and all spend the night together. The giggles often go on long past lights out. We wanted a unit with a fun room that was special to the children and that was big enough for them to all sleep in the same room in a sleepover-type environment. We wanted them to see the children's room and say, 'WOW! I LOVE this room!'

Another Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We always love staying in Carolyn’s condos. This was our second stay in the Parkhopper Pad and we enjoyed every moment there. It’s always clean and comfortable. We call this “home” when we visit Orlando. It’s equipped with anything we need and we love having a dishwasher and laundry machines. The beds are very relaxing after long days at the parks. Our son loves the Mickey room and bathroom. We loved coming back late, ordering pizza, and relaxing on the couch catching up and talking about the memories we made. Carolyn-you’ve won us over and now we are officially annual pass holders at WDW so you will be hearing from us very soon to start planning our next stay at one of your beautiful condos. Thank you for keeping them so beautiful, clean, comfortable and affordable for families who prefer to stay off property.

Perfect set up for area!

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn was more than great to work with! Their helpful tips for the area and Disney had us resting assured that we were getting the most out of our stay we could. The condo has a lot of room and was a perfect place to come back to after being gone all day. We did not have the opportunity to use the Windsor Hills facilities (pool, etc.) due to time and weather but will definitely use when we return. The new kid's/water activity area looks like it will be awesome!

location was great

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit. I don't know what the cleaning crew uses but there was a strong smell when you entered the condo. One of the guest must have been allergic to it but took some meds and then everything was fine. Also, this is the first rental that there was no extra toilet paper or at least one little box of detergent. Next time we will know to bring our own.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and hope that you will consider staying with us again. Our cleaning teams do thoroughly clean the unit after each staywith some lightly-scented cleaning products. We adjusted the cleaning schedule to accommodate your 3-hour early check-in request at no cost, meaning that the cleaners left the unit a short time prior to your arrival. The scent of the cleaning products dissipates rather rapidly, but a fresh scent does remain, which most guests seem to like. I am sorry that a member of your party had some type of allergic reaction to the scent. This type of reaction has never previously been reported to us. The information that we send to all guests states that we provide unlimited dishwasher detergent and trash bags along with starter soap, toilet paper, and paper towels. We also state that it is the guest's responsibility to replenish the starter items when the provided supply is depleted. Also provided is the information that we try to leave items such as laundry and cleaning supplies when we stay in the units. We also state that because we are not there to replenish these items regularly, they may or may not be found in the unit. It is not our intention to be misleading in any way concerning the items found or not found in the unit upon arrival. I am sorry that your expectations were not met. We do work very hard to ensure that each guest has a 5-star experience in each of our properties. If given another chance we will do our best to earn a 5-star for your next stay.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Reserving was a breeze. Carolyn was very quick to reply and provide us with more than what we could have asked for. The information packet provided was a great help too! Quick and easy ride to all 4 Disney parks. Plenty of parking. This unit has everything you could possibly need. Damage deposit was returned quickly. It was definitely better than staying in a hotel. We had a great time and wish we could’ve stayed longer to enjoy the amenities that they had to offer. Will definitely book here again!

Amazing trip!! Everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here, and can’t wait to return and/or try out another one of Carolyn’s properties!

We were very comfortable. From the moment we arrived our 4 year old couldn’t believe it. She had her own amazing room, and we were so happy to have the pack and play there to set up in our room for our 1 year old. There was tons of space.

The stroller was awesome and we definitely used it. Everything was extremely clean, we didn’t have any complaints.

It is about a 5-10 min drive to the parks. Super easy to go and come.

Carolyn was a pleasure to work with from the start to finish. Great experience!

US Hwy 192
Car: recommended

Windsor Hills located less than 2 miles from the entrance to Disney property, and is one of the closest rental areas to the Disney theme parks. We have found that it requires less travel time to stay at Windsor Hills and drive back in the afternoons for naps and pool time, than it is to stay at some of the Disney properties and use the Disney transportation system. It is one half mile from Hwy 192, which features many dining venues from fast food to table service restaurants. The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios are 10 minutes away or less, depending on traffic. Animal Kingdom is only 6 minutes away. Additionally, grocery stores and Target are only 2 miles away. Walmart is approximately 5 miles from Windsor Hills.
