Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

We are very proud to be a PREMIER PARTNER with VRBO, and to have received more 5 star ratings than almost any other home in Windsor Hills.

We just installed a brand new 70" SMART Ultra HD 4K TV, which is not shown in our photos yet. In addition to the free HBO, Showtime, and other channels we provide, you can now connect to your Netflix, Amazon, or other streaming accounts directly from our SMART TV.

FREE WI-FI HIGH SPEED INTERNET, X-Box 360 with Kinnect System and Nintendo Wii.

We also have a full-size arcade game, featuring 60 classic games from the 80's including:

• Pacman

• Ms. Pacman

• Frogger

• Donkey Kong

• Space Invaders

• Galaga

• Centipede

• Dig Dug

• Mr. Do

• Burger Time

• Many, Many More!

Welcome to our luxury villa at Windsor Hills, featuring a true south-facing private pool and hot-tub, with no rear neighbors. We are one of the closest homes to the amazing Windsor Hills clubhouse - about a 2 minute stroll away.

The most important feature of our family retreat is that we offer one of the few south-facing pool homes in Windsor Hills that also has no rear neighbors. Spend a moment viewing the Windsor Hills development on Google Maps. Most of the south-facing homes back right up to another property. Most of the other homes with no rear neighbors face north, east, or west – limiting the amount of sun the pool area will receive. If you select a south-facing home that has rear neighbors, the neighbors pool will be approximately 10 feet from your pool – not my idea of relaxing! Take a look at the view from our pool area and you’ll see the difference.

The second most important feature is our proximity to the world class Windsor Hills club house, resort water slide, movie theater, sundry shop, fitness center, and other amenities. We are right down the street from the club house, approximately a 2 minute walk. Many of the homes in Windsor Hills are located a good 10-15 minute walk away from the club house. If you have children, and you are a 15 minute walk away, you almost have to drive there to utilize the amenities of this lovely resort. Our proximity to the clubhouse and water slide makes our home perfect for all ages. We are also right across the street from the amazing children’s 'castle' playground!

Our home offers five bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom. Unlike some homes, we offer three bedrooms on the first floor, making our home the perfect choice for those travelers who prefer first floor living.

Windsor Hills is the premier luxury vacation resort near Disney, boasting the best amenities in the area.

Windsor Hills is less than 2 miles away from Disney's main gates.

Each bedroom in our home has a flat panel TV, complete with its own DVD system, and its own private bathroom.

We offer a great cable TV package, including HD programming, HBO and Showtime pay channels FREE of charge, as well as UK Soccer programming on FOX Soccer.

We also offer FREE Long-Distance calling to the entire US and many other countries, including FREE calls to land lines in the UK and Canada.

The family room includes leather furniture, as well as a 70" HD TV and a Sony DVD Player for all to enjoy. We also offer a library of 40 DVDs for your enjoyment. If you'd like, there is a DVD rental kiosk at the Windsor Hills clubhouse, just a 2 minute stroll down the street.

Your children will love the 'Star Wars' room and the 'Mickey Room'. We offer an X-box 360 in the Star Wars room, and a Nintendo Wii in the Mickey Room. We also offer a library of many video games, including:

• NHL'11

• Madden 12

• Star Wars The Force Unleashed

• Family Game Night 3

• UFC Trainer

• Body and Brain Connection

• Bully Scholarship Edition

• Call of Duty Black OPS

• L.A. Noire

• Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009

• Ace Cp,nat 6: Fire of Liberation

• Motionsports Play For Real

• Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 20

• Dance Central

• Batman

• Grand Theft Auto IV

• Masters / Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12

• Wii Sports

• Just Dance 3

• MLB Baseball

• NBA 2K7

Each bedroom offers a flat-panel HD TV complete with its own DVD player.

Both the 'Star Wars' room and the 'Mickey' room feature two twin beds each, as well as a trundle bed in each, for a total of three sleeping areas in each twin room.

We have two master suites, both on the first floor, featuring brand-name furniture, King beds, ultra-plush pillow-top mattresses from Sealy, and private en-suite bathrooms.

Our Queen suite, also on the first floor, is in a private corner of the home, with an ultra-plush pillow-top mattress from Sealy, and a private bathroom - perfect for the Grandparents.

Our home has a dishwasher, as well as a washing machine and dryer for your convenience.

ONE OF THE BEST FEATURES is that our home has two separate air conditioning units, and two separate hot water heaters, one for each floor. Our adult bedrooms also feature ceiling fans.

Our home backs to open space, providing additional privacy, while you and your family relax and enjoy the pool and spa/hot-tub.

This is a non-smoking home, stocked with all linens, utensils, etc. We even offer a 'starter pack' of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc.

For those families traveling with young children, we offer a stroller, high-chair, pack-n-play, and bedrails.

We hope you enjoy your stay!

About The Owner

Donna and I have been married for 24 years, and we have been blessed with 5 children, the youngest being just 12 years old, so we have many years left to enjoy the magic of Disney!

We own three homes in Windsor Hills - right next door to each other - and we really enjoy spending time in this luxurious resort with our extended family.

We fell in love with Windsor Hills since we are only 2 miles away from Disney, and very close to Universal Studios too. We also take time to travel to either coast to swim in the ocean as a day trip (just 1-2 hours away). We just love our location.

Equally enjoyable is being able to share our three homes with travelers from all over the world. Our guests arrive as tenants, but leave as friends!

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee

We rented many homes in Windsor Hills before purchasing our home. Our home backs up to the green conservation area, where no new homes can be built. This means when we are relaxing in our private pool, there are no other families behind us looking into our pool area. If you look at photos of other homes, you will see how close together the homes are - all back-to-back.

What makes this house unique

Spend a moment viewing the Windsor Hills development on Google Maps. Most of the homes face north, east, or west – limiting the amount of sun the pool area will receive. When you view Google Maps, you'll see many of those pool areas covered in shade - even during the middle of the day. With our south-facing pool, the sun is always on our pool area.

Our home is just 2 miles from Disney's main gate!

Please note, our calendar on this website will not accurately reflect our availability for security purposes. Because we have a lot of high-end furnishings, televisions, video game consoles, etc. in our home, we prefer to not show exactly when guests will be arriving and departing. Please contact us to inquire about your desired travel dates. Thanks!

Exceptional experience!

  • 5 of 5

House is beautiful, owners are amazingly helpful. Property managers and club house team are great as well. Our group had a great time and would definitely stay in house again.

Owner's Response: Dear Jim and Sandra, Thank you for your 5 star review! We really appreciate it! Thank you for mentioning the great service you received from our local property managers. They are great! They live just a couple of miles away from our home, so their response time is excellent. Sometimes owners work with large companies that are responsible for 1,000 or more homes. There is no way those large corporations can provide the service and attention our guests deserve, so we work with a pair of local caretakers who service just a handful of homes - all in our neighborhood - so that provides a much better experience for our guests. We hope you and your family and friends can visit again soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Bill was awesome, provided so much helping details. The home was awesome !!! It was everything and more we expected. Even the pictures don't do it justice. The location of the home was perfect close to the club house and all the main attractions. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Mike and Family, Thank you for taking the time to leave your 5 star review. We really appreciate it! It was great that you got to bring your youth football team to Florida to compete in Nationals. Windsor Hills is one of the closest resorts to the various AAU event sites, and we're so happy that our home was a good fit for you and your family. Bill and Donna Burns & Family.

Wonderful, clean home, great pool/hot tub, close proximity to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven just stayed at Bill and Donna's home for a fall weekend get away to Disney. Homeowners were awesome - very responsive, providing helpful tips for the property and surrounding area, and made everything perfect for us. The house is very spacious for a big group and has very cute/fun decorating in the two upstairs bedrooms. When we were home, the kids were either glued to the arcade games in the bonus room, or swimming in the spacious pool. Let me tell you from our experience of staying at other homes with pools in Orlando area - the homeowners really do keep the pool HEATED with the option of turning up the heat for the hot tub to make it a truly functioning hot tub within a short time, at no additional cost to the renter. This was greatly appreciated by our family, and with the full sun exposure, our kids were happily swimming in 65 degree weather for hours! This home is VERY close to Disney in a gated community. We had a great stay!

Owner's Response: Dear Jenny & Family. Thank you for taking the time to leave your 5 star review. We really appreciate it! We're so happy the kids had a great time in the pool, even in the cooler fall weather! We invested in an over-sized pool heater two years ago, which is meant to be installed for a pool about twice our size. In addition, we also have 7 solar panels on the roof to further assist the pool heating. Between these two systems, we try to keep our pool at 85 degrees year-round. Many homes in Windsor Hills are still using the original builders-grade pool heaters, which just can't keep up in the cooler months. It's great that the family got to use the arcade game in the game room. That's one of our children's favorite features of the home - even if the adults do sometimes beat them at Pacman, Donkey Kong or Galaga! Thanks for being such a great family to work with, and we hope you can visit again soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home and had everything we needed. Each bedroom was beautiful and each had it's own private bath. Our family really enjoyed the private pool and hot tub. Bill and Donna provided many wonderful tips for grocery stores and restaurants near the area. We will definitely come back for our next trip to Disney!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary and Family, Thank you for taking the time to leave your 5 star review. That was very kind of you. We are so happy that everyone had such a great time. Thank you for mentioning how each of our bedrooms has its own private bathroom. That makes life so much easier when large families are traveling together. There are a lot of 6 bedroom homes in Windsor Hills that are very nice, but all of the 6 bedroom models only have 4 bathrooms, so it can get crowded with a full house. It's nice that our 5 bedroom home has 5 bathrooms, so everyone can get ready in the morning quickly and then out to the parks! Thank you for visiting our home, and we hope you and your family can visit again soon. Kindest regards, Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Close to Disney, large and comfortable house

We enjoyed our stay in this home. The home is large, kid rooms were cute, and our families enjoyed the hot tub and pool. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive.

Owner's Response: Dear Tracy and Family, Thank you for taking the time to leave your 5 star review. We really appreciate it! Thank you for mentioning how close to Disney we are. There are some homes that advertise themselves as just "miles" to Disney, and I think those hosts are hoping that guests will read "miles" as "minutes". We are about 6-10 minutes away from the Disney parks depending on traffic. If someone is staying 10 "miles" away from Disney, it can sometimes take 30 minutes (each way) to get to and from the parks. What I like the most about our close location is that we can come home for lunch, or for the children to take a nap, and then we can get right back to the parks. Before we purchased our home, we stayed about 15 miles away one year, and it took forever to get to Disney, so we stayed the entire day at the parks. Those were very long days for the kids, not to mention the expense of eating every meal at the parks. Thanks for being such a great family to work with, and we hope you can visit again soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Well appointed villa with a sunny open rear aspect.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish Bill and Donna's communication was fantastic. The villa was very comfortable for our extended family and there was enough space that we weren't in each other's pockets. The games room was a big hit with the kids and the pool and terrace was the perfect place to unwind after a hard day at the parks. Being so close to Disney was a huge time saver (Animal Kingdom was less than 10 minutes away). All in all, I would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Steve and Family, Thank you for your review. We really appreciate it! We are so happy that your family had such a great time in our home. Thank you for referencing our pool area and the sun we receive. That's the biggest benefit of a south-facing pool. Thank you for being such a lovely family to work with, and we hope we can welcome you back to Windsor Hills soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

DAMAGE INSURANCE: The "Damage Insurance" Fee of $59 you see referenced in our online quote is our Damage Waiver Payment. We offer that to guests instead of a $500 refundable security deposit. Because this fee is included in our rate, you do not have to select the Damage Waiver Insurance offered through VRBO at checkout. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We actually have two cancellation policies: The "normal" policy and the "best efforts" policy. The normal policy is that each payment is non-refundable once it is made. If someone cancels after their deposit was made, but before their final payment was made, all they would forfeit is the deposit payment. While this is the "official" policy, we have five children ourselves, and we know full well how plans can change with kids. We are happy to report that we have never had to hold anyone to the "official" policy. The reason being is that our goal is to make guests happy in the hope that they will return to our home year-after-year, and not to profit at their misfortune. This is why we also have a "best efforts" policy as follows: In the few instances where a guest has needed to cancel, or the guest had to adjust their number of nights, if we are able to re-rent those particular nights at the same rate, then we are able to apply all or the majority of their payments to a future stay. If we are unable to re-rent those nights, then the payment would be lost. In the few instances this has happened we work closely with the families to try to find a solution that will work, and with the exception of cancellations that are very close to the travel dates, we usually have some level of success getting the nights re-rented.

GUEST REGISTRATION FORM: Once your reservation is confirmed, we will forward to you our VRBO/Homeaway Guest Registration Form where you can provide your guest list for the Windsor Hills security gate.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
