Windsor Palms Resort (formerly called Wyndham Palms) is a community built by Pulte Homes, a leader and very reputable custom home builder. The resort is located only 2.5 miles from the main gate of Disney World. We have updated our unit with beautiful new ceramic tile throughout and it is newly painted in 2013.
Our wonderful custom-built condominium is large-1206 square feet and has all brand new furniture and appliances. We have the best location that overlooks the pool . You are able to see the nightly Disney fireworks from our screened in porch!
The amenities at Windsor Palms are unmatched: a 7500 square foot clubhouse with pools, tennis courts, work-out facilities, arcade, media center, basketball courts, sand volleyball court, playground, game room with billiards, and sundries shop on premises. This is a premiere community that was designed for family vacation fun!!!
It's only $89 per night and that includes everything!! And it looks like new--the owner has done a lot of work to keep the place up to date--the new ceramic tile and fresh paint make it look like a new unit.
Can't go wrong with this place. And the amenities in the Windsor Palms complex are fabulous. And it's really only 2.5 miles to Disneyworld.
Our entire stay in this unit went smoothly and made for a wonderful vacation. After making the initial inquiry, the owner, Brett, responded right away and was able to provide info about the property and answer any questions. He was available by email if we had any questions during our stay, and answered right away as well. The condo is in a gated community with a 24hr security guard. The key is stored in a lock box so you can check in at any time, no need to meet with anybody.
The unit itself is fully furnished and equipped. There are three bedrooms, a master (which has it's own washroom with shower), a second one with a Queen size bed and a third with two doubles. The bedrooms have dressers and closets if you want to completely unpack. This was perfect for myself & wife, Grandma who stayed in the 2nd room and my 8 yr old son who slept in one of the doubles. The kitchen was fully equipped with eating and cooking utensils, with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, stove, microwave oven and coffee maker. While we did eat out on occasion, this certainly enabled us to buy groceries and make meals in the unit, saving lots of money on restaurants (there's a 24hr Walmart Superstore nearby for shopping). There is also a washer and dryer in the unit which allows for convenient access to laundry. Not everyone wants to bother with laundry while on vacation, but hey, you need clean clothes and this allowed us to pack lighter and leave more room in our luggage to bring back souvenirs!
Being in a gated community, the condo is located right across the roadway from the clubhouse, which has a swimming pool (tiki bar at the pool), video arcade, a small store like a convenience store, and office area. I think they also had a service there if you need to have anything delivered. On Saturday, there was a music party at the pool until closing time at 10pm. While we didn't have a chance to partake as we just arrived around that time, we enjoyed the tunes while we were settling in.
The only things we were disappointed about, is that the complex does not seem to have a recycling program (no fault of the owner - and he is now aware of this and will discuss with management) and there is no free WiFi if you have a laptop with you and want to access the internet (which Brett also advised of ahead of time - so not a surprise). Internet is available at the clubhouse but there is a fee for using it.
Overall, a wonderful place to stay. My family will not hesitate to stay here again.
