Overview

Kissimmee Villa Rental Photos and Description

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 REMODELED ROOMS - COMPLETED IN SUMMER 2014.

We have added a 'Despicable Me' room and bathroom, as well as a 'Marvel's Avengers' room and bathroom. We also completely remodeled our game room, and added two large-capacity, high-efficiency, washers and dryers, which are great for larger families.

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!

$50,000 Luxury Remodel: Our spectacular family retreat offers 5 bedrooms – each with a private bathroom – which is perfect for accommodating large families. Our home has recently undergone a COMPLETE $50,000 LUXURY REMODEL. As part of this project we have installed new carpets, 18” imported porcelain tile, and an upgraded kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The 5 new 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.

For the children: 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 newly opened 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.

Beautiful home & great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 adults & 2 kids (aged 4 & 6). We spent many hours looking for a villa that ticked all the boxes for us......and this one certainly did! The owner Bill was great, very informative and very prompt at replying to my many questions! The villa is huge and we all enjoyed having our own space. My son, husband & dad loved the games room. We have been to Florida a few times and this was one of the best villas we have stayed in. My little girl loved the pool & the hot tub and so did I. As its a south facing pool we got the sun from morning until late afternoon. The location was fantastic, very close to Disney. We discovered on the last night that you can see the fireworks from the upstairs bedroom. This was a nice end to a fantastic holiday. We are in discussion about returning in 2018 and would definately recommend this villa to friends & family.

Owner's Response: Dear Sandra, Thank you for taking time to leave your review. We really appreciate it. We love the view of the fireworks from our home! The upstairs bedrooms provide a nice vantage point over the trees, or sometimes we will pull some lawn chairs out to the sidewalk to get a different view. It's great being able to enjoy the show without having to fight the crowds at the parks. We're so happy that everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Sometimes people looking for the perfect villa will discount the benefit the south-facing pool provides. There are definitely other homes in Windsor Hills that rent for lower amounts, but with north, east, or west facing pools, those homes will only get sun for part of the day. We really enjoy not only the sunshine our pool gets, but it also keeps the water much warmer in the evening hours since the pool retains more heat from the day. Thank you for being such a wonderful family to work with, and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2018! Kind regards, Bill and Donna & Family

Excellent House to stay at

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Very roomy, clean, nothing was outdated. Pool was warm and clean. It was so nice to come home after a day at Disney and not be cramped into a hotel like room. Kids could relax doing their own thing, playing pool, swimming, video games, or just relaxing in their OWN bedroom!! Our four kids ranged from ages 5-9 and the house worked great. If our kids were 15-20 it still would of worked great. Tons of room. Having the full kitchen was so nice to prep our meals for the days adventure. The entire community was quiet all around us which was great. The community pool and activities were a huge hit for our family as well. Having the Laundry easily accessible to use in our house was extremely nice too. We will make another trip to Disney in the future and we would definitely want to stay in a place like this. The driving was a breeze to Disney or Cocoa Beach. Great location our house was, basically right in the middle of anything you wanted to do. Our kids still talk about how great our "Florida House" was. Thanks again for making our Disney trip a memory to last forever.

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca, We are so happy your children enjoyed their "Florida House"! That's wonderful! Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We appreciate you mentioning how warm the pool was - even though your travel dates were in January. We have invested a lot in our over-sized pool heater, as well as our solar panels which also heat the pool. Most homes in Windsor Hills still have the original pool equipment, and that means those pools can be considerably cooler in the winter months. We are so happy your family was able to enjoy the pool each day. We also appreciate you mentioning the easy driving to Cocoa Beach. Sometimes families think they have to choose between a Disney vacation or a beach vacation, but that's not the case. We make several day trips over to either coast whenever we visit Disney. We were happy to hear that this trip was a "memory to last forever" and we hope you can visit again soon. Kind regards, Bill and Donna & Family

Volleyball Excursion Success

  • 5 of 5

When facing the task of planning a 10 day volleyball training/playing trip for 12 teenage girls, coaches and parents, I thought I might be over my head. But thanks to Bill and Donna, the planning and execution of this trip couldn't have gone better. The place was perfect. The decorating and amenities were above our expectations. We were pampered in every way possible. Even the weather cooperated with us, with 90+ degree weather. The only room that didn't get as much use as we thought was the games room, as we all wanted to be outside all the time, as our Canadian weather keeps us in all winter.

A great luxury to Bill and Donn'a home is having the majority of the bedrooms on the main floor. It was also so very well laid out where no rooms were too close to each other...maximum privacy.

Thank you, Bill, for taking such good care of us before, during and after our trip. You have thought of everything to make a vacation truly that...a relaxing, pampered time. We will definitely consider it again in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We really appreciate it! It can be difficult planning trips for such large groups, and thankfully we have three villas side-by-side which we can offer for large family reunions or other groups. We are glad you mentioned the privacy of our home. Not only is it private without having the rear neighbors, but on the inside the bedrooms are all spread out which also allows for maximum privacy. We are so happy that you and your girls had a great time. As you put it, a "relaxing, pampered time"!! Thanks for taking such good care of our home, and we hope you can make the trip down from Canada again soon! Have a wonderful spring! Bill and Donna & Family

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We knew from seeing the photographs online that the vacation home we were going to was beautiful, but you have to go there in person to really appreciate how wonderful it is. From the minute we walked in, we were incredibly impressed. The elegant furniture, the beautiful south facing pool (it gets sun all day!!!), the well thought out kitchen, the themed bedrooms for the kids, the amazingly comfortable beds for everyone, the game room (which the kids and adults loved) - I could go on and on, but anyone reading this review and trying to make up their minds, should go there themselves to experience a truly wonderful stay. The location is fantastic - so close to Disney, Sea World, and many other attractions. Also, it's a quick walk from the house to the small, but wonderful castle playground (the kids loved it!), and the Club House where you can relax and enjoy their pool, drinks and a snack, or just run in for a few quick grocery items. Last but certainly not least, the owners were beyond helpful. I had lots of questions, and they were all answered in a very timely manner. You can tell that a lot of thought and planning went into making the whole experience at this home really special. We highly recommend listing 940520 to anyone going to the area. You will love it!

Owner's Response: Dear Ginny, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We really appreciate it and it is so helpful for future travelers. We really appreciate you mentioning how much sun our pool gets. You traveled in February which is one of the cooler months - even in Florida - but our south facing pool really makes a difference. Getting sun all day is wonderful, and our over-sized pool heater makes sure the water is perfect - even in the cooler months. We also appreciate you mentioning how comfortable our beds were. We have stayed in some other vacation homes where the owners skimped a bit on the mattresses, and that can really ruin an otherwise nice vacation. We have Sealy Pillow-Top mattresses on our beds. They were more expensive to purchase, but well worth it at the end of a long day spent at the parks. Thanks for being such a great family to work with - all three generations! We would love to welcome you back again soon. Best wishes for a wonderful spring! Bill and Donna & Family

Great Place to stay - Hot Tub and Pool a delight

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the Burns vacation rental during our stay in Kissimmee with our daughter, her husband and grandchildren, Julia 11 & Austin 9. They did the Universal, LEGOLAND, Discovery Cove and Sea World activities and as well as tour my grandfather's home Pinewood Estate at the Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales. Location of the Home was ideal for all these activities. The home's amenities were fine and clean. The Property Manager help us through an initial mix up at the Front Gate that had two other couples with coming to the same property. All of us enjoyed the Pool and Hot Tub and Game Room each day. I would recommend the property to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Bob & Family, We were so glad to hear you had such a great time. I'm glad our local caretaker was able to sort out the initial confusion upon your arrival (the security personnel at the main gate gave a different family directions to our home instead of their actual home a few doors down). That's one of the benefits of having a local caretaker who lives so close by (just 2 miles away). He was able to be onsite almost immediately. We are glad that the pool and hot tub were such a delight for your grandchildren. This is especially good to hear with your travel dates being in December. Our pool is still quite warm in the winter months, because of our over-sized 140,000 BTU pool heater. We also have a solar heating system to augment our pool heater. Between those two appliances plus our south-facing pool, this helps our pool and hot-tub recover much more quickly from the colder nights in the fall and winter months. Thank you for mentioning our proximity to Universal, Legoland, and Sea World. We are only about 2 miles away from Disney, but we are also very close to all of those Orlando attractions. Hopefully you and your family can visit again soon! Bill and Donna & Family

Windsor Hills is less than 2 miles from Disney, and is the newest and most upscale gated development in the Orlando area.

Once you've experienced all that Disney has to offer, you can take a short drive to Universal Studios, Sea World, upscale malls and shops and other Orlando attractions.

Windsor Hills is within 2 miles of a large Publix grocery store, a 24 hour Walgreen's, and multiple chain and independent restaurants for all budgets.

There is a concierge service at the Windsor Hills Clubhouse as well as a small on-site grocery and sundry shop. There is also a shuttle service available to Disney and other attractions (the shuttle schedule and fees are available at the Clubhouse).

For the golfer in your family, Windsor Hills is right next to the world famous Mystic Dunes Golf Course!

Make sure to spend time in the HUGE resort pool at Windsor Hills, including the tubular water slide for the kids!
