Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great place to stay for a vacation in Orlando. It is right next door to Disney and has shops, restaurants and entertainment venues just minutes away, with easy access to the major highways. Windsor Hills itself is first class, it has great well kept facilities and gives you a very secure feeling. The house is fantastic, the pictures on the website are perfect and give you an idea of the high quality you should expect. Considering this is a rented property, even the finer details exceeded my expectations! The rooms were light and airey and well maintained. We have stayed in hotels before where the matresses dipped in the middle where so many people before had laid before, not here, they were firm and gave great support for a good nights sleep. The white blinds married well with the decor to give you perfect privacy from the pool deck. The pool area and games room were a real plus and I can only suggest adding to these areas as time goes on. All the equipment was easy to use and in good working order, yes I think there was a squeeky closet door, and a pillow case with a minor tear in the fabric, but who cares, this place was as perfect as you could get it, made me want to come home and spend my husbands well-earned money redecorating my own place. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!

Amazing home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the house for 6 days in April and loved it! The house was clean and exactly what we were expecting. No surprises. The owner was great to deal with. Our only concern was the mattresses based on previous reviews but they were replaced shortly before our arrival and were very comfortable! Definitely a bonus!

The bedrooms were large and my boys loved having their own ensuite! It was so nice to have our own space to retreat to after long, busy days. Although the kitchen was equipped with all I needed to cook meals (pots, pans, dishes, blender, crock pot, mixer) I did need to purchase all the food and spices. There is nothing supplied - which I personally appreciated because using someone else's used, open food doesn't really appeal to me. But just be prepared. This is something I didn't think of before we arrived. They do supply paper towel, toilet paper and dishwasher detergent upon arrival. Having our own washer and dryer was also a plus and the machines looked brand new.

My family loved the pool, air hockey table and pool table at the house! The kids could swim while the adults relaxed poolside or in the hot tub. Great way to wind down after a busy day at the parks.

The house itself is in a gated community so we felt safe and secure and the area was very clean. We visited the local club house but unfortunately didn't have much time to take advantage of the great facility there. If you have children they will love it there! There's a pool, tennis court, basketball court, ping pong and small store all within a 10 minute walk from the house. So convenient! Next time we will ensure we have more time to enjoy the club house!

The house itself is very conveniently located. Disney parks nearby, Universal and Sea World within 20 minutes, shopping and restaurants local. It was easy to drive around and I didn't get lost!!

We had a great time at this house and would highly recommend it. We will definitely be back!!

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed for 4 days and loved it. The only complaints is that the beds are really old, extremely hard. A few ppl slept on the couch and the floor. It Was Just that bad. Two of the couches has marks everywhere, could use a good cleaning. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook we just got dish detergent and trash bags which isn't a problem

Having the pool and games in the garage were awesome. I would stay again but only if the beds are changed.

Excellent Orlando Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described, and in immaculate condition. The kitchen is modern and clean. The dining room table easily seats 8. The pool and patio were very comfortable for lounging around. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious. It was particularly nice that each bedroom had its own bathroom.

Windsor Hills is a well groomed neighbourhood with a security gate and coded access. While this could be a little inconvenient for coming and going - short queues of cars would form at the gate - it certainly provides a high level of confidence in the security of the property. The club house area is nice and there is even a little cafe where you can get coffee, wine, or a beer while relaxing. We would definitely return - highly recommended.

Too bad they have a difficult to work with management company

  • 4 of 5

The owner was pleasant to work with, the home was very nice and the location is great. Unfortunately, we asked the management company to procure a crib for my infant grandson. The crib that we received had an extremely soft mattress and the mattress did not fit snugly within the crib. These are safety issues. The crib sheet appeared to be stained and the board at the bottom of the crib that helps support the mattress had a corner missing off it. We had it picked up the next day and we rented one through another company. The management company and the original rental company refuse to refund our money. We paid for 8 nights and never used the crib. They maintain that there was nothing wrong with the crib. Why on earth would we spend the time researching rentals and setting up a delivery for another crib if there was nothing wrong with the first one? We had better things to spend our time on while on vacation. We are presently disputing the charges.

Close to Disney

  • 3 of 5

You may want to sleep on the floor as the beds were uncomfortable to say the best, other than the king upstairs as someone prior to us had purchased a pad for the top. Make sure you bring everything you need as not much is at hand for creature comfort. Pool and hot tub were nice but make sure you stay more than 5 days or no heat in either. Getting in was a little difficult as directions were hard to follow on the key excess. Location to Disney was great and excess to dining was good. If you like a FIRM mattress this is the place for you.

Great Property and Facilities!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay, and everything was as described. We had read some of the previous reviews so our expectations were quite high, and the odd lower score had not put us off.

We found the villa to appear exactly as the pictures showed and the descriptions of the rooms were spot on. The facilities of the property were just what was needed. We found it very clean when we arrived and the items we needed to get started were supplied. We cooked for a large group one evening and had all that we needed, although as my husband would say, I could always make use of more stuff!!!

The beds were comfy, and most of the bedding was clearly new, and we all slept very well. And the aircon was perfect at maintaining a nice temperature. The pool was great, and the kids spent a lot of time in there, no stray animals on this occasion, but that's just nature, nothing you can do about that!

The location is right next to Disney, and there are a lot of shops and restaurants all within a 10 minute drive. You couldn't get a more central location. Even international drive is only 15 minutes in the car. The communal pool is less than 10 minutes walk, and the whole community is very upmarket.

I have only stayed in two places before, and this one is definitely the best. Of course, we all have different preferences and things we notice, but this place was perfect and I cant wait to bring my family back in a few years time.

Thank you,

Carmel Glanville
