Overview

About the property

6 BD/4 BA, Walk To Clubhouse, PRIVATE HEATED POOL/Spa. &  70" TV/HOME THEATER

We invite you and your family to stay at Villa By The Castle!

Situated 1.5 miles from Disney, our family friendly 6 bedroom, 4 bath home provides all the comforts needed for a relaxing & enjoyable stay. Villa By The Castle is professionally managed and owner operated to provide our guests a more personal experience.

This home away from home has been decorated with our guests' needs in mind. We are constantly striving to update the villa so that our guests have the best experience possible.

The villa is located in the gated resort community of Windsor Hills. It is fully air conditioned throughout, including the game room -- the crowd favorite. The game room was recently renovated and is the ultimate stress free zone. You’ll have your choice of playing pool, foosball, air hockey & darts.

Another great area to lounge in is the spacious great room, here you can watch your favorite movies on a 70” 3D LED TV (3D glasses included), DVD player & surround sound system.

All the bedrooms have a 40” or 32” LED TV with internet apps and DVD player. The living room has a 55” LED TV, so everyone will have plenty of options when it comes to watching their favorite shows.

There is Free WIFI throughout the house & free access to the Netflix house account on all the TVs.

When it’s time to unwind, just relax and take a dip in the heated pool & hot tub (heated year round for your comfort). The entire pool deck is screened in and is surrounded by lush green hedges for added privacy. The private covered lanai is a great place to relax with your favorite drink while the kids have a blast in the pool. There is also a pool fence to keep the little ones safe.

On the days when you’ll prefer to prepare your own meals, you can venture outdoors on the pool deck and BBQ. The rest of the family can join you in the covered lanai, under the breeze from the outdoor fan. If you decide to stay indoors and enjoy a movie while you prepare your meals, our kitchen is fully equipped and offers all the tools you’ll need.

Check-in and check-outs are smooth and simple with our secure keyless entry system. You’ll be able to go straight to the house at check-in and leave without having to pick up or drop off keys.

While in Windsor Hills, you’ll have full access to all of the resort’s amenities. The club house is a short walk from the villa. There, you’ll find a double-Olympic sized pool (kids love the double spiral water slide, dancing water fountain & splash pad), the movie theater and the convenience store. There’s also a castle playground right around the corner from the villa for the little ones in the family.

The villa is very close to the main entrance, no need to navigate a maze of streets just to find your house. The clubhouse and recreation areas are also both within a short walk from the house.

During your stay you're not only minutes from Disney but close to lots of restaurants (TGI Fridays, Carraba’s Italian Grill, Cracker Barrel, Outback Steak House, IHOP & Denny’s) & shopping (Target, Publix, 7-11 & Walmart). It’s centrally located for you and your family to enjoy all that the Disney area has to offer.

The Villa’s Layout

1st Floor

The Living Room

As you enter the Villa, the ground floor offers a spacious living room with a 55” LED TV/HD cable box and comfortable sitting area adjacent to a full size dining area. As you continue, you will walk into an open concept fully equipped kitchen with an integrated breakfast nook that offers a beautiful view to the pool and opens to the great room. It also leads to one of the favorite parts of the house, the lanai and the private pool & hot tub.

The Lanai, Private Pool & Hot Tub

One of the villa’s main features is its private southwest facing large heated pool. The pool is fed by a gentle waterfall from the hot tub spa. Take a dip in your own private heated swimming pool and the spa backing on to a green open space. After a long day at the parks, enjoy sitting in the bubbling raised spa with a relaxing drink.

The pool has an extended deck and a pool safety fence for your children’s safety. This entire area is screened in to keep the bugs out, and is southwest facing to ensure you have sun all afternoon. There are also privacy hedges all around the perimeter. Relax on the sun loungers and enjoy a sleepy afternoon.

There is a pool basketball hoop; nothing is more fun than a game of one-on-one in the pool, there are also plenty of pool toys in the deck box.

The pool heater was just upgraded, you will now be able to enjoy a heated pool even when the temperatures go below 55 degrees. The typical pool heaters in the area stop working below 55 degrees, that won't be the case during your stay. :)

We provide free pool heat, free use of the 4-Burner Propane Grill and free propane during your stay.

We have cabana towels (100% cotton large 35 x 70 beach towel in classic blue and white). No need to bring anything but your suitcases and bathing suits.

The Great Room

The great room features plenty of seating on a comfortable leather sectional, a large 70” (177.8cm) 3D LED TV, Xbox One with Kinect, surround sound system and Blu-ray DVD player with digital HD cable service.

This TV also has a FREE Netflix account with access to 1000's of movies, Netflix even has 3D movies, just take out the 3D glasses from the TV console and enjoy!

It's a great area for the family to regroup and relax. You can enjoy a movie or simply chat while a feast is being prepared in the kitchen.

The Game Room

Our latest addition features a brand new 8 ft. professional pool table, foosball table, air hockey table, dart board, wall to wall carpeting and is completely climate controlled (both A/C and heat). The game room is definitely a crowd pleaser.

The Dining Room

The dining room table seats 6 -10 people, two additional leafs expand the table for seating for 10.

Kitchen

If you love to cook (or love saving money by not eating out), then you’ll really love our FULLY-EQUIPPED KITCHEN.

The kitchen has everything a good cook needs to feed a hungry crowd. This kitchen has every appliance you’d find at home – a full-size refrigerator & smooth surface stove, microwave, toaster, 2 coffeemakers with permanent filters, Keurig, rice cooker/steamer, crock pot, blender, electric mixer, waffle maker, popcorn maker and a new high-end Bosch dishwasher.

We’ve made sure to include a full-set of pots, pans, cooking utensils and plenty of dishes, glasses and silverware to make every meal delicious!

The informal dining/breakfast nook has a table that sits 4 and can expand to 6. It overlooks the pool. There’s also a breakfast bar that seats 2.

We also supply dishwasher & laundry pods, kitchen soap and garbage bags.

Laundry

On the first floor, there is a separate laundry room with brand new ultra-large-capacity front load washer & dryer with ironing facilities. Our guests will never have to worry about having to go back home with dirty laundry.

The second floor is where you’ll find the remainder of the bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en suites) & the study where you can comfortably sit and surf the web on a flat screen LED all-in-one computer.

Bedroom Highlights

About Steve and Sandy

We love to travel as a family and have become devoted vacation home renters. From Florida to France, from the moment we had our first vacation rental experience in OBX, we were hooked. It was such an intimate & happy experience for our family and we still have lasting memories from those trips. This is the only way we travel and wanted to also pass on this experience to families staying in our Villa.

Steve and Sandy purchased this villa in 2014

Why Steve and Sandy chose Disney / Orlando

We chose Windsor Hills vacation resort because of how close Windsor Hills (2 miles) is to Disney and how established The Windsor Hills community is.

The villa is also one of the closest private houses to the clubhouse and all of the Windsor Hills amenities are just a short walk away.

For the sun worshipers, the house offers plenty of sunlight throughout the day.  The Pool faces south-west, getting sun starting around 10:30am. We love to enjoy the fantastic Florida sun by the pool.

What makes this villa unique

Villa By The Castle has a heated pool & spa, large covered lanai, 70 inch 3D HD LED TV, 3D BluRay Player, XBox One With Kinect, a play station 2 in the Mickey room and flower room, an LED TV (either 32' or 40') and Blu-ray player in every bedroom.

The brand new game room has just been completed and features an 8 foot professional pool table, air hockey and foosball table. The game room has wall to wall carpeting, air conditioning and heating.

We have several pool games available FREE for your use including a pool-side basketball hoop.

We have a lot of baby gear FREE for your use during your stay, including a high chair, pack n plays, a jogging stroller, crib, baby monitor, excersaucer, bed rails, a baby gate and a baby bottle sterilizer.

During your stay you'll have use of a 4 burner stainless steal grill including propane free of charge.

The villa is close to all that Windsor Hills has to offer, in fact the villa is one of the closest private houses at less than a 2 minute walk to the water slide!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for three weeks and it was just fantastic there were eight of us and we had plenty of room don't think we even used the downstairs bedroom. The Villa had everything we could possible want and there were no hidden charges for anything. Pool and hot tub were well used and was an excellent addition to the Villa. The games room came in handy during the rain storms. The Villa's location in Windsor Hills was great as it was close to everything we wanted to visit, all the Disney Parks and lovely restaurants.We would have no hesitation in recommended this Villa and look forward to returning in a few years time.

The house is cozy and comfortable! Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the most wonderful welcome package! There were a couple of issues right off the bat, but Steve and Sandybtiok care of it immediately.

The kitchen is fully stocked, the pool towels are soft and thick and the pool itself is so warm!!

We loved the big, modern TVs in each room and the perfect location so close to the club house. This was our fifth year at Windsor Hills and by far our favorite house!
