Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms and 5 Bathrooms (all en-suite) - Sleeps 10-12 - Free Wi-Fi

Welcome to The Windsor Dream - The Ultimate Villa at Windsor Hills – A luxurious south-facing home with private pool and hot-tub, with no rear neighbors.

CHECK OUT OUR BRAND NEW PHOTOS - OUR HOME WAS COMPLETELY REMODELED IN 2017

We try hard to keep our homes "fresh", so every few years we have our interior designer come in and help us update everything. We have purchased all new furniture for our living room, dining room, and most of the bedrooms, as well as a brand new 70" Samsung UltraHD 4K Smart-TV. We also painted the interior and had our kitchen cabinets re-finished, and we installed crown molding, as well as all new granite counter tops in the kitchen and first floor master bedroom.

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, 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 you almost have to drive there to utilize the amenities of this lovely resort. We are also right across the street from the amazing children’s playground!

Our spectacular family retreat offers 5 bedrooms – each with a private bathroom – which is perfect for accommodating large families. The 5 bedroom suites are all finished with custom window treatments, soft furnishings, and of course have “top of the line” pillow topped mattresses for your maximum comfort. The home has been completely redecorated, and furnished to an exacting standard, with individually chosen designer furnishings and draperies.

The Windsor Dream also has a fully air conditioned game room with pool table and its own cable TV package with FREE HBO and SHOWTIME. Imagine coming home from a long day at the parks, and the adults can relax in the main living room and kitchen area, and the kids can have their own privacy in the game room area.

The Windsor Dream, our Ultimate Villa, has state-of-the art flat panel HD televisions and DVD players in all rooms, FREE high speed wireless internet, and free national and international phone calls.

For the children, there is a choice of both an Xbox 360 and Play Station gaming consoles, with an assortment of games.

For our youngest guests, we provide a full range of infant/toddler equipment to make your stay as stress free as possible.

The resort recreation area has lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball, lighted basketball courts, as well as a newly opened golf practice putting/chipping green area.

There’s also an amazing children’s playground area. The unique, castle themed playground has something for everyone. A dragon guards the drawbridge over the moat, and once inside children and imaginations run wild!

Service and Safety: We employ a local management company that is exclusive to Windsor Hills. On the off chance you have any service needs during your stay; our local caretaker is just a phone call away. So many management companies offer nameless, faceless representatives. We made sure you will have access to someone right in the neighborhood should the need arise. We offer a keyless entry lock system on our home, so you don’t have to worry about driving around Orlando looking for a management office to collect your keys. You can drive straight to our home, and we will provide you a personalized code for immediate access. Windsor Hills is not only a gated community – there are helpful, trained, security staff working at the gate 24/7. This makes us feel very safe and comfortable; especially when we let our older children walk on their own throughout the resort. We know that you have many beautiful homes to choose from in this amazing resort development, and we appreciate you considering our home.

About Bill and Donna Burns

Donna and I have been married for 22 years, and we have been blessed with 5 children, the youngest being just 10 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!

Bill and Donna Burns purchased this villa in 2011

Why Bill and Donna Burns chose Disney / Orlando

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. In addition, since our home is on the end of our "row", the neighbors to the side are also a greater distance away. In our opinion our home is the most private in all of Windsor Hills.

What makes this villa 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.

Fantastic villa and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this villa enough. It's immaculate, stocked with everything you could need for a vacation and in terms of location we were in Disney property in under 5 minutes drive.

In addition, the owner of the villa, Bill Burns went out of his way to provide comprehensive information and was always on hand to answer my many questions quickly and completely.

If you're looking to rent somewhere to stay for a Disney holiday I am struggling to believe you could do better than this place. I shall be recommending to everyone I know!

Owner's Response: Dear Dan and Family, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I know how busy we all get, so it is wonderful when guests can leave their thoughts for future travelers. We are so happy everyone had a great time. Thank you for referencing how "immaculate" our home is. Our cleaners have a lot of work to do with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, but they always do a great job. Thank you for referencing the quick 5 minute drive to Disney. There are so many homes out there that advertise themselves as just "minutes" to Disney, but many times they are a good 30 minutes away. What I love about our location is that we are close enough to come home from the parks for lunch, and then head back to Disney again in the afternoon, without missing a beat. Thanks for being such a great family to work with, and we hope you can visit again soon! Kindest regards, Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Owner's Response: Dear Michael and Family, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a 5 star review. We really appreciate it! We're so happy everyone had a great time! Our air conditioning system has motion sensors on the thermostats, so if there has been no motion in the home for a few hours, it will automatically adjust the temperature higher by a couple of degrees. Those sensors aren't active in the evening hours, as no motion is expected at that time, but they are very helpful during the day, because many times families are rushing out of the door in the morning and they might forget to adjust the temperature before leaving. It's amazing what technology can do today! Thank you for leaving our home so clean, and for being such a great family to work with. Hopefully you'll be able to visit Disney again soon. Best wishes for a wonderful summer! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Great house, great location, great pool; we all loved the house.

  • 5 of 5

We as grandparents treated our daughters families to a trip to Florida. With 4 grandkids and their parents and us (10) having the 5 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms with a pool worked out great. Plenty of towels for swimming and 2 new washers and dryers were perfect. The grandkids (8, 11, 12, & 14) loved the game room and pool. The house was spotless and convenient to accomodate eating breakfast, cooling drinks to take with us, and fixing evening sandwiches and snacks. We loved our stay and plan to come back.

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara and Henry, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We really appreciate it! We're so glad you found our home to be "spotless". Our cleaners do a great job. We're also happy that the dual washers and dryers came in useful. That's a huge benefit when you have large families traveling together. We hope that you can visit again soon! Best wishes for a wonderful summer! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Awesome home with private pool area and full sun!

  • 5 of 5

My family began planning our Florida vacation a year in advance and I spent weeks searching for the right home that I thought was perfect in every way. I had stayed at other homes in Windsor Hills which had rear neighbours and partial sun and even cleanliness issues. Once I found Bill and Donna’s house, my search ended. Not only is their house large and accommodating for the entire family, it is comfortable and well decorated. My children loved the Minions and Avengers room, while their grandmother loved her own personal suite. The 2 King bedrooms and ensuites are extraordinary and the entire house is so clean and well equipped…lots of towels, bedding etc.

The kitchen was very well equipped with stainless appliances, a refrigerator with ice, a ceramic cooktop stove and a Keurig coffee maker. In my experience these features are not found in many of the Windsor Hills homes and because of this we felt at home while on vacation. The great room was more than great! Our family was so comfortable sitting around the oversized sectional and the 72 inch tv is almost beyond description. What a luxury!

When the kids wanted a break from the pool, they found themselves in the games room which again is so well appointed with comfortable seating and plenty of games for young and old alike. I enjoyed the retro games including PacMan! In the games room is the laundry and one can imagine how convenient it is to have not 2 but 4 top quality laundry machines.

And to top all, the location of this house is extraordinary. It is within walking distance to the clubhouse and it has full sun. And last but not least there are no rear neighbours at Bill and Donna’s house. We enjoyed many hours sitting and looking at birds and hot air balloons on the pool deck. Everyone loved the pool and the hot tub and compared to other homes even the patio furniture is top notch! I honestly cannot say enough about this house. I would even say that Bill and Donna's houses are in demand as, after we had been on vacation for a week, neighbours from our hometown checked into Bill’s house next door. Apparently my neighbours are returning guests and they too love these beautiful homes and their unbeatable location.

Bill was so responsive and professional from the first email I sent him. His communication and willingness to help surpassed my experiences with other home owners in Windsor Hills. My family definitely plans to return to Bill and Donna’s Windsor Dream.

Owner's Response: Dear Sherry & Family, Thank you so much! Your review is perfect for future travelers, since you have stayed in other Windsor Hills homes before. Thank you for providing your thoughts to other families who might be considering various vacation rentals. We really appreciate you mentioning the difference between our home with full sun and no rear neighbors, as compared to homes with partial sun and rear neighbors just a few feet away. It does make a huge difference. We are so happy you had a great time, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kindest regards, Bill and Donna Burns & Family

5 +++ excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Let me just start by saying you will never find a more caring couple to rent from. I am a single mom and wanted to give my children a once in a lifetime experience. I looked at many properties and even though I felt I could not afford this property it was a dream home. So I contacted Bill and Donna. And I never regretted it. From the first email I sent he answered in detail. He went way out of his way to make this trip affordable and amazing for my family. He offered suggestions on this to do within my budget and kept in contact with us while we were there to make sure everything was perfect. The house and community was absolutely beautiful. If we hadn't already had tickets for the parks we would have never even left the home. He has everything (and then some) that you would ever need. The house is very spacious, beautifully decorated and very high end furniture. The game room was a huge hit with the kids. As we were a family of 12 we had plenty of room. I can't say which was better the home or the customer service with Bill and Donna. Also everything you need is just a short drive. Overall I will definitely recommend this rental to all my friends and family. And we will certainly be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca, Your family was awesome - thank you so much for your kind words. They made our day. We were so happy to be able to assist with your travel plans and make sure you had a wonderful vacation with your children. Thank you for mentioning how much room everyone had in our home - even with 12 travelers. It's great to be able to spread out after a long day. We hope you can visit again soon! Take care, Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our son was selected to play in a showcase baseball tournament in Florida in December. The excitement of being selected, going to Florida in December and visiting Disney was immeasurable.

The planning of our trip became a little overwhelming until we found Bill & Donna's home. Bill was fantastic to deal with. He made the stress of booking a breeze.

Once we arrived, the home was exactly as pictured...if not better!! It was very clean, well-organized and stocked with everything you would need on a trip! The double washer and dryer was such a bonus when needing to wash uniforms and still able to wash other things!!

When we returned home, we raved to all friends how awesome our place was and we hoped to book an adults trip to Disney very soon!!!

We will definitely book again for our next trip!!

Owner's Response: Dear Karley and Wally, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We really appreciate it! It's great that you got to come come down from the cold northeast to enjoy some baseball! We have welcomed many athletes over the years, and not just children. We had an NBA player stay in our home not to long ago. It's all about location. We are just about 6 minutes away from the ESPN Wide World of Sports Center, as well as some additional baseball, softball, and basketball facilities. Location is so important, because it means families can come back to our home to relax in between games, and not stuck sitting at the gym or fields all day. We're glad you liked the dual washers and dual dryers. It's a huge help when uniforms have to be clean and crisp each day. No one wants to stay up all night doing laundry! Thank you for being such a great family to work with, and we look forward to helping you plan your "adults only" trip to Disney soon! Best wishes for a wonderful summer! Bill and Donna Burns & Family
