5/5 Stayed Dec 2020
Booked on Vrbo
Our group of 5 adults and 5 children, including 2 month old infant twins, stayed in this awesome home for 5 nights starting Christmas Day. We were greeted with a Christmas tree and a couple other tasteful holiday decorations, as well as everything needed to make an awesome breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. We had plenty of room to gather when we wanted, and to spread out when we all needed space. The “neighborhood” is great – we visited the park, clubhouse and pool and enjoyed taking walks. Proximity to Disneyworld is terrific. We had food delivered from 2 on the list of recommended restaurants. We cooked several meals and every tool was available – even a crockpot! Absolutely everything we needed was there. Even though the temperatures were quite cool while we were there the kids enjoyed the pool & hot tub. If you’re thinking about booking this house, just do it! You won’t regret it!

Deserves more than 5 stars!
You will not regret booking this Villa. I pride myself as the planner for all of our family vacations. I research and research some more. This property is more than a rental, it truly felt like a home. It has everything you need and more. The location was perfect for Disney with plenty of restaurants close by. The house is laid out perfectly, plenty of room to relax at the end of a long day at the parks. The house was very clean, beds were very comfortable and don’t bring beach towels, she has plenty for you to use.They even had a welcome basket with some snacks until we could make it to the grocery store. I wish we had planned to spend more time at the house and property resort, we booked 8 days and that wasn’t enough. Jane was so helpful and quick to answer all my questions. She was wonderful, I wish all property owners treated their guest like she does. I hesitate writing this review. Why? Because I want to keep this little gem to myself. We are already thinking of our next trip to Disney and this house will be my top pick. As I stated earlier , this house deserves more than 5 stars!
Until next time,
The Anderson family
It would be impossible to recommend this property any higher. The house was perfect for my family. It had everything you could possibly need to create a fun, relaxing, and memorable stay. My three girls loved the princess themed room, and we all spent hours in the pool and the game room. The neighborhood is in a great location for everything – Disney, restaurants, shopping, etc. The owners were always quick to respond and very helpful. It was so great that we actually extended our stay once we were there. Great house. Great location. Excellent experience.

If I Could Give More Than 5 Stars I Would!!
Outstanding 6 Bed Villa, Pool & Spa, Superb Lakefront Setting, 5* Windsor Hills
We decided we needed to get away but still wanted to not have a lot of interaction with people. 6 adults and 16 month old triplets. We fell in love with the pictures of the pool. From the planning stage the owner Jane was amazing to work with. She helped facilitate the perfect vacation with our needs in mind. We loved the house. It is so clean and has every thing well thought out. (Pool towels by door). We were welcomed with enough food to get us started and stores are located very close by. The beds are so comfortable and the Windsor Hills amenities are great. We are already considering when we can go back. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would!!!!

Great Time, beautiful view, spacious home
My family rented for 12 days in June 2020, trying to isolate during the virus season with an attempt at feeling normal. We loved the house, pool, and the view and the complex and Jane were so helpful. We did not leave the complex but had a great time and will do it again in the future.
A Beautiful Home

This home was very clean and comfortable! We had a wonderful stay. The pool was beautiful and our kids loved it. The game room was also a big hit. Windsor hills itself is a gorgeous resort community and we enjoyed the heated lagoon pool. Cannot say enough about how perfect this home was for our trip! So close to the parks! We really appreciated the very comfortable beds and linens after long days in the parks. Jane was a fabulous host and answered all my questions quickly. Thank you Jane!!
Our family of 8 adults and 3 kids stayed here the first week of January and we loved this property. The house was clean and was exactly as represented in the listing. Jane is easy to work with and organized. She makes everything easy and provides so much information that you just have to show up and enjoy your vacation. We will definitely stay here again.

Disney Christmas/New Year Vacation 2019/20! 🎉
Having returned to Jane’s villa for a 2nd time (the first time being for a family wedding five years ago) it is an outstanding property in a secure gated community and an ideal location for jmost of the major attractions. The facilities provided at the villa cater for just about everything you are likely to need. The stand out feature for us was the look on our four year old grand daughters face when she saw her Disney Princess themed bedroom. It was truly priceless.
Jane and her family were so helpful with providing us really useful and detailed information prior to our arrival including restaurants, supermarkets, attractions and even options on live sporting events (we managed to get pre season NBA tickets to see Orlando Magic v Philadelphia 76ers during our stay.
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and we will certainly be back again, hopefully within five years.

Beautiful family villa
Lake View Villa soaked up our party of wife and I, our two daughters and their husbands and our three grandchildren, without us even needing to use the downstairs bedroom. The two little girls loved the Princess Ballroom bedroom. Having two living areas was very useful too. Everything worked just fine and the villa is exactly as shown in the pictures. Jane was very responsive to our queries before arrival – I wanted to make sure it was just right for us all, and it was. We’ve stayed in other villas on Windsor Hills as the resort is so well situated – this villa is the best equipped and better located with an easy walk to the clubhouse and onsite ‘waterpark’. Wish we could have stayed longer. Aug 2019
A WONDERFUL PLACE!
This place is amazing and we had a grand time! You have great taste, it is so nicely decorated and my kids adored their rooms. The treasure box and pool toys are a huge hit! It’s such a wonderful place! We have enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful home!

Perfect House for a Family Vacation
This was a wonderful house for our family’s Christmas vacation. The owners were so thoughtful in how they welcomed guests into their vacation home. We stayed the week before Christmas and when we walked through the door we were surprised to see a cute little decorated Christmas tree. The owners also left a nice food/care package to start off our vacation. The house was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed gathering together in the living room and outside around the pool. The kids loved the game room as well. The location is fantastic. We were always a quick drive away from all the area’s major parks and attractions. We were also minutes away from grocery stores and restaurants. This is an amazing house and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
We Loved the House
What a wonderful place and time we had here and thank you so very much for everything you did for us. We’ve loved the house and had a blast. Thanks so much again.

Wonderful family vacation
Can’t say enough about the lovely time we had. The villa was immaculate and even better than the pictures! And it was so thoughtful for Jane to make arrangements for snacks and breakfast items to be there when we arrived. Our family was so comfortable staying here and there was plenty of room for everyone. I would defintely stay here again next time we visit Disneyworld.
We had a lovely time in your home!! We were in the pool first thing every morning. My husband and I swimming and splashing with the children, and taking sips of our coffee on the side. We played so much in that pool. So many good times were had. Your home was so comfortable and had everything we could have ever needed. I so appreciate all the time and effort you’ve clearly put into the home. It made our vacation just perfect.

Beautiful Villa in a Fantastic Location!
Beautiful villa in a fantastic location. We were a party of 9 with 4 children. The house was perfect for our needs; extremely well equipped and really close to on site amenities as well as easy access to Disney. So close that we were able to pop home for an afternoon break in a day of park visiting. We loved the villa and found Jane to be really informative throughout the whole process. I’d highly recommend this villa to anyone considering a Florida break and hope that we’d be able to return one day in the future.

We had such a wonderful time at Your Villa. Its was beautiful and everything was perfect. Beautifully furnished and so clean. Loved watching the fireworks from the back deck area every evening. You have thought of everything right down to dvds and board games for the kids.Loved the book section as well. Thanks so much for the welcome package that you had waiting. We will definitely be back for sure. I cant think of one thing I would change. We felt so comfortable and at home.You were so nice and friendly to deal with which made everything so easy. The pool heat was nice on those cooler mornings but by late afternoon the water was really warm. We liked it that way. Thank you so much for everything I will be a repeat customer. I already want to go back lol

Amazing Week at Disney
Our family had an amazing week at this property. This house had everything we needed. With several little ones we felt added peace of mind with the pool fence and patio door alarm. The patio offers privacy from the immediate neighbors with a great view of the lake/clubhouse. We enjoyed the short walk to both the community pool and park (block in either direction). The kids especially enjoyed the waterpark and large community pool. Extremely convenient to major Disney parks (approx 15 min away). When we had several questions come up during our stay, Jane and her management team replied instantly. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and definitely recommend this to families with little ones.
We hope to be able to stay at your beautiful home again soon!

Great Family House
Our family recently spent 2 weeks here and it was great. We were a family of eleven including children and grand children. The owners have thought of everything. The house is very family friendly. Beach towels were included and prevented us from packing those. The kitchen was great and well equipped. We used the new water park and pool complex. Location was very convenient to Disney, Sea world, shopping. There is a new Walmart very close. We would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed the property and the location. The owners were very good to work with and thought of so many details that helped with the things that were unfamiliar to us. The surprises we had were good ones!
Wonderful owners and stunning villa!
My family has stayed in this beautiful villa in the past, we rebooked while we were still on vacation. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel our upcoming trip. Jane was nothing but compassionate and understanding both offering a refund or to apply our deposit to another date. This she did not have to do. We chose to rebook because we cannot wait to return. I recommend this incredibly amazing villa and Jane so your family can be as well taken care of as mine. We cannot wait to be back.
Thank you again Jane we would recommend your property to anyone.
Just come back after a three week stay in this wonderful property and………WOW! What a place, from booking with Jane and arriving it was nothing but a fantastic experience. The best place with have ever stayed at and did exactly what it said on the tin. All was as perfectly described and we wanted for nothing during our stay, our young granddaughter learned to swim in the wonderful pool and the views were outstanding across the lake. Just one regret, we had to come home!!!
Thank you Jane for letting us share your wonderful home
John and family
We have stayed at Windsor Hills several tomes over the past 5 years & are very happy with the resort & the ideal location. This home in particular was in the perfect location within the community! Loved the lake view & the convenience of being able to walk to the main clubhouse area was great! Jane was fabulous to work with & very accommodating. We arrived very late due to a flight delay & even though I stopped to get some essentials at 3 am I did not even need to. We had a breakfast welcome kit waiting! The house was stocked with everything we needed. I would definitely be a returning client. Thank you for a great stay on our vacation!
Windsor Hills Delight!
We have just returned from a three week stay at this truely outstanding villa. We have visited Florida 6 times over the past 15 years and we all agree that this really is the most wonderful villa we have ever had the pleasure to visit. We were a party of 8, myself and husband our two grown up children and their partners and two grandchildren. Jane has obviously put a lot of hard work into ensuring that everything in the villa is perfectly maintained. The attention to detail throughout is second to none and she has throught of everything to ensure that there is everything you could possible want/need. The grandchildren particularly fell in love with their respective Pirate and Princess bedrooms, and the men enjoyed what my granddaughter described as the secret room – the Harry Potter enspired games room.
Windsor Hills is perfectly situated and is only a couple of miles from the parks. We enjoyed viewing both Epcot and the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the beautiful pool area. There is a newly opened Walmart literally a mile down the road and a wide variety of restaurants on your door step.
Jane has been absolutely wonderful to deal with, both before and after our holiday. She always replied to any queries/questions we had within literally a few minutes and nothing has been too much trouble. She is extremely professional and always called, sent paperwork etc exactly when she said she would but more importantly she was friendly and approachable and we always felt we could contact her if necessary. I would, and have already recommended this outstanding villa and would return again in a heartbeat as would the rest of my family. In fact we are saving up again now to return again! Thank you again Jane for ensuring our family holiday was absolutely wonderful!!
This is an exceptional property with great facilities close to Disney.
We stayed at the property for 15 days at the beginning of April this year. The whole process from booking the villa to receiving all our final instructions was dealt with by Jane in a most efficient manner. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in this area, our grandchildren absolutely loved the pool and the games room . The villa itself is very well furnished with all the obvious facilities that you require along with with some great themed rooms for the younger ones. We had a wonderful holiday with our family, using this beautiful house as our base.
Fantastic Home and wonderful hosts!
We had a fabulous week in this gorgeous beautiful home! The kitchen is stocked with quality kettles for cooking, beautiful dishes and everything we needed to prepare our meals. Felt very safe in this gated Community, everyone was very friendly! The view from the breakfast nook overlooking the lake and pool was a highlight! Jane the owner was over the top, she went above and beyond in making sure our vacation was a delight! Close to everything! Highly recommend this vacation home! It seriously had everything we needed from extra blankets to baby items! Thanks again Jane for being so kind, and a wonderful host!
Great place. Clean and comfortable 🙂
We stayed for eight nights Nov 2017. Had a few minor issues on arrival that were dealt with easily and quickly. The rooms were very clean. Pool was warm and refreshing. You can see the Disney Fireworks in the distance. Jane ( owner ) was a delight to deal with. I Recommend this property 🙂
We have just returned home after holidaying in this lovely villa. From the moment we arrived and discovered a welcoming provisions pack we felt at home. The villa is spacious with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen. All the bedrooms are comfortable. The children especially loved the pirate bedroom. Everywhere was spotless. It was lovely to come back to the villa after a day at the parks. We would swim in the lovely heated pool or play in the games room or just relax in front of the state of the art TV. We all reallly looked forward to walking through the door and just relaxing in our holiday “home”. We all really hope we can return to this delightful villa for a holiday in the not to distant future.
Jane was a pleasure to deal with. She answered emails promptly and it was obvious that she really cared about making sure our holiday lived up to expectations.
Our second visit to this lovely villa which is in a brilliant location for the theme parks and restaurants.
If you are thinking of renting this villa definitely do it!! You won’t be disappointed!!
We had a fabulous time here, from the location to the facilities to the decor, all 5 star.
Massive thank you to Jane, an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone and would love to return in the future.
Fantastic location for Disney parks in safe well appointed villa
I have no hesitation in recommending this villa if you are looking for a location that is ideal for quick easy travel to all Disney parks and easy driving to Universal and Seaworld. The villa itself is on a gated community so very secure. Well decorated throughout with all the equipment you need for a great family holiday. The owners were very responsive and helpful before the trip and whilst there we found the management company to be equally on the ball. For kids and adults alike the pool and spa are first class and safe. Indoors the playroom, kids DVD selection and the wii were all a bonus for some downtime.
Plenty of places to eat locally with good food shopping at Publix nearby. There is also a handy list in the villa if you want to organise home delivery.
This is our second time at Windsor Hills but our first at this particular villa. It was certainly a step up from the previous villa we rented and if going back to this area we will book this villa again. All seven adults and four children from age 2 to 60 had a ball.
We would highly recommend this villa to anyone staying in the Orlando area. We took a family trip to Disney World and the location of this Villa was excellent.
The Villa was so beautiful, clean and well stocked with everything you would need. I loved that this Villa overlooked the pond and was so close to the community area.
When we arrived there was food and drinks to get us started which was so appreciated.
Jane was so wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay at this Villa again.
Sandy and family from Ohio
Great villa in great condition and location
Return visit -love the villa and the location
So welcoming and comfortable.
Really close to the parks, great view from the pool. You really can see the fireworks for Magic Kingdom and Epcot from there which we regularly did with a glass of wine. Very comfortable beds. We all slept like logs. Would definitely recommend.
Faultless villa with awesome lake view
This villa is superb and provided the perfect base for a fantastic holiday. My girlfriend and I are keen travellers and have stayed in some terrific villas, but this place ticks all the boxes. The villa was immaculate, very spacious and had everything we needed. The spotless kitchen was the best stocked we have ever come across. When we were looking to book, the lake view and closeness to the Clubhouse were very important as we had our parents with us.
Being so close to the Disney Parks made travelling easy, so we fitted in more than we initially planned, including a Rodeo and day trips to Busch Gardens, the Kennedy Space Centre and Tampa/Clearwater Beach!
Dealing with the owner Jane meant that the whole process from enquiry to booking and everything else we needed for our holiday was an absolute breeze. I had always been a bit apprehensive about booking a villa direct with the owner before, but this stay has completely changed my view of that!
Thank you Jane for everything and answering my endless questions with such good nature. We travel a lot to many different locations and never usually go back to the same place, but our stay at this villa and everything Orlando had to offer has completely changed that. We can’t wait to return next year and for many more years to come, I’m sure!
Excellent property - grandkids loved the pool and themed bedrooms
Excellent location , literally 10 minutes from Disney – hope to go again??
Villa very well equipped , the owners went out of their way to make our family holiday special.
Impeccable, clean, welcoming, beautiful. Start to finish we had a wonderful experience.
Amazing, start to finish we had a wonderful vacation. Personal touches everywhere in the home make it feel like you are on a vacation in the comfort of your own home. Jane is fabulous to deal with. Windsor Hills is safe and family friendly and absolutely beautiful.
Swanson Family Vacation
This villa was a wonderful place to stay for our family of 13 which included 5 grandchildren aged 8, 5, 4, 2 and 16 months. It matched the pictures and descriptions on the website. We encountered a few small issues that we handled very quickly. The community itself is very nice, quiet and clean. Getting to any of the parks was easy and shopping was very close by. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and would rate it 5 stars.
From the beginning discussions with Jane, it was as if working with a friend. She was just so open & direct, yet more than just cordial. Walking into her home, EVERYTHING was as depicted and the requested accomodations for the toddlers in our group were ready and waiting. The welcoming amenities were a nice surprise as well! This home is immaculate & quite tastefully decorated and, the kids loved their rooms! The park and the splash pad were a hit when we stayed nearby. To anyone who wants the comfort and security of their own home while in this area, this home is a must! Thank you, Jane, for the use of your home & for helping to make our family reunion so easy and so wonderful!!
Wonderful vacation home; perfect location for Disney vacation!
This “home away from home” was perfect for our Disney vacation! The house and furnishings are beautiful, comfortable, and very well laid out for our family of 10. The kitchen is well equipped to serve large families and there are plenty of linens/towels for guests. The owner has provided many extras for family entertainment and enjoyment. I can’t think of anything we were missing! Access to Disney parks, restaurants, grocery, and others is very easy and convenient.
Jane, the owner (HOST is a better word for her!), was a pleasure to work with. She made the rental process so easy, provided much useful information, and stayed in touch along the way to be sure we had everything we needed. The hostess gift of breakfast items awaiting us when we arrived was so very nice and welcoming! Jane, thank you so much for your hospitality! Looking forward to the next time!!

If going to Disney, stay here!
We were a family of 10, this villa was perfect for a large family.
Very comfortable and very clean.
So close to Disney that you can take a break at the villa and go back.
The pool area was a huge hit with all the grandkids and the hot tub was a extra bonus.
I would recommend this villa to anyone, Jane is wonderful to work with and very informative.
The food she had for us when we arrived was a nice surprise, exspecilly if you arrive late.
I would definitely stay here again.
