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.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a month, with our grandkids ages 4 to 20 lots for them to do with the heated pool, game room and close to the parks an extra plus. Bill was very helpful with tips to make our visit memorable and with meeting any needs we had during our stay. Great communication.

Owner's Response: Dear Judy and Ron, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! We really appreciate it! We were happy to be your "home away from home" for the month of March. You had a great plan for the month, with Grandma and Grandpa staying for the full month, and then having the children and grandchildren down during alternating weeks. It really was the best of both worlds - getting some time to relax on your own, and then allowing the family to create great Disney memories. Even though our home has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, you might be surprised at the amount of retired couples who rent our home just for themselves. It's nice to have the same amount of space you might have at home when you go on vacation. We're glad the grandchildren enjoyed our heated pool. Between our over-sized pool heater, plus our solar pool heater, our pool stays at a pretty constant 85-88 degrees, even in the cooler spring months (not to mention our spa/jacuzzi that can reach a temperature of 100+ degrees). We hope you and your family can visit again soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Owner's Response: Dear William, We are happy you liked our new TV. Just in time for the Superbowl. We don't have any new photos posted yet of the TV, but we just installed a 70" Samsung SMART TV in our home. The TV is a 4G model with incredible picture quality, and it includes the Samsung SMART suite of apps including Netflix, Hulu, HBO on Demand and a host of other great streaming services. Hopefully you can come back for the Superbowl again next year! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Truly fantastic villa in a lovely community

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in October. There had been a small issue due to the previous weeks stormy weather but that was taken care of by the owner Bill and also his maintenance team in a quick and professional manner. The villa is truly beautiful and the photos do not do it full justice. It was cleaned immaculately for us when we arrived which was very welcome after a long flight from Scotland. It is set on a lovely plot in Windsor Hills just a 2 minute stroll from the clubhouse which was also well kept and staff lovely too. We will most certainly return to this villa in the future. I cant recommend this villa or the owner highly enough. You will not be disappointed!!

Owner's Response: Dear Steve and Family, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We really appreciate it! We are so happy you found our home to be "cleaned immaculately". Our cleaners do a great job, and it's wonderful to know their efforts are recognized. The cleanliness of a home is so important when families are traveling with young children. Your family was wonderful to work with, and we hope you'll be able to visit again soon! Kindest regards, Bill and Donna Burns & Family

The home was as lovely as the description and pictures portray! The ride into Disney was very easy and the owners are great communicators. Definitely recommend.

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

What a fantastic holiday hime

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune of staying in Bill &a Donna's home over the last couple of weeks. The home is exactly as pictured (if not better!). It's well appointed with comfortable mattresses and furnishings without us feeling like we had to constantly tell the kids to take care.

The owners and management company were fantastic to deal with. Any issues (and they were truly minor) were dealt with promptly.

We happened to be there during Hurricane Matthew and Bill and Kevin went out of their way to prepare the home, reassure us and help us out.

I have stayed in several different homes in Windsor Hills over the years and this is by far and away the best.

We will definitely be booking again for our next trip to Orlando!!

Owner's Response: Dear Lori, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We really appreciate it! Your review is perfect for other travelers to read, for two reasons: 1) You have stayed at other homes in Windsor Hills before, and 2) Your most recent stay was when Hurricane Matthew was coming up the Atlantic coast. We have a biased opinion about our home (haha), so we really appreciate you mentioning that our villa was "far and away the best you have stayed in". We also appreciate you mentioning the service received from our local caretaker Kevin. Even though the Hurricane was about 65 miles away from our home, there was a decent amount of panic hitting central Florida in the days leading up to the anticipated storm. Kevin was able to get the home prepared just in case, and get all of the pool furniture moved and stored away. He even stayed over night in Windsor Hills the evening that the storm was making landfall, just in case our guests needed any immediate attention (in case the power went out or something like that). It is tough to get that kind of personal attention with the large Orlando property management companies. Our two local caretakers do a great job. Thank you for being such a great family to work with, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kindest regards, Bill and Donna Burns & 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!
