This was an amazing villa on a well-kept gated estate. Out of the various villas on offer this was of the top level with a beautiful private pool, not overlooked in any way (unlike many of the others). The place was immaculate and looked like it had just been decorated. It was within 15 minutes of the Disney parks and about 20 mins of the Universal parks (the reason we went). Shops and restaurants are really close by, although we ate in some nights as the kitchen area was so nice! Having such a bright, spacious and airy villa (including a games room) made the holiday really relaxing. I couldn't actually find a single fault with the place! Excellent in every way.

This was our 5th or 6th stay at this property, which means that we love it. It’s in a great location for the parks and restaurants. The property is well looked after and the grandkids especially love the pool. The only downside is that it’s necessary to book well in advance.

Beautiful home, clean and contains everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. We have stayed in several rental homes and this was by far the nicest. Check in procedure was smooth from initial email to arriving at the gate. We will definitely stay here again. Big thanks to the Banks family.
Jeanne & family
Beautiful, Spacious Home
We have rented vacation homes about a dozen times and this one was the best by far. The home was updated, nicely decorated, and the beds were very comfortable. The pool was very warm. Amanda was very responsive to all of my questions and my security deposit was returned within a week of our stay. We've never stayed in the same place twice, but are seriously considering returning to this home next year.
Erica, New York
Our goal for this vacation was to have rest and relaxation as a family - this villa was the perfect spot for us! We all had great rooms to stay in. The kitchen/living room opened right up to the beautiful enclosed pool area! With lovely warm weather we lived with the air off and enjoyed the indoor/outdoor living spaces all week long! The pool and spa were wonderful! The owners have kept the home updated and equipped with everything needed for a fabulous stay! We hope we will be able to return again in the future. The home is close to Disney and just over an hour to Cocoa Beach. We even met family in less than 2 hours for the day at Anna Marie Island on the Gulf! It is a wonderful location. We enjoyed the game room and had nightly ping pong matches! Thanks so much Amanda for thinking of everything necessary to make it a lovely stay!

This is a beautiful villa with a great private pool and hot tub. It's a lovely place to stay for a summer holliday. The villa is great, very clean and is very spacious, and has everything you need. We had a great vacation in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the beautiful house, nice pool, wirpool and game room (and so much more). The owner (Amanda) is very friendly and helpful, and the management company (Vicky) is also very helpful and responsive when we contacted them. Thank you Amanda, for the great vacation we had in your home!! We would definitely stay here again!

Another 2 week fantastic family holiday in this wonderful villa. This is our 3rd visit. The pool deck is amazing, the kids and us loved the pool and the Jacuzzi especially on our park visit days. The villa was kept to a high standard and we noted that it had been upgraded in many areas since our last visit. We will be back!
Guy R, August 2016
This property is well kept in a great gated community close to Disney Parks.
This is a beautiful home with a great private pool and hot tub. The game room at the home and clubhouse provided hours of fun and entertainment. This is a great priced getaway close to dining, fast food and all major attractions. Amanda was very responsive to our needs and provided great customer service.
Rob W, July 2016
We had a few quirks as far as the cable and heat in the whirlpool but the owner and management company were very quick to respond and have these issues remedied. The property was comfortable and inviting. We enjoyed having our own pool but also the option of utilizing the club pool and tiki bar :). Overall our time spent here was great and we would defiantly use the villa again! Thank you!

A GREAT VILLA
Yet again another great holiday at this villa [second visit]. A lovely clean place to stay.A fantastic pool [didn't want to leave it] .Pool person was very thorough and left the pool and surrounding area spotlessly clean.A gated community with extra cheerful security staff.A short drive to theme parks ,shops and an abundance of restaurants. Thanks to Amanda for her prompt help and instructions and for letting us stay again. Much appreciated. Just really nice to sit and relax around the private pool and watch the wildlife, the dragonflies are HUGE
Janice T, June 2016
Just returned home from our fab holiday, the villa was great, very clean and very spacious, had everything you needed, we especially choose this villa for the hand rail into the pool, as our mum of 84 always wants to get into the pool but is isnt too confident getting in and out, all the other villas we have rented haven't had the rail, so she could never enjoy the pool. Amanda is very approachable and always replyed to our emails, we also spoke on the telephone, which was very helpful. We found the management team Amanda has out there were very helpful and responsive when we contacted them. The villa is very close to all the shops, restaurants and Disney Magic!!!!! Our mum is already saving up for her next visit, we would definitely choose Amanda's villa again. We also enjoyed the community centre, where we enjoyed a lovely lunchtime holiday tipple!!!! Thank you for a lovely stay.
The McK, May 2016
We had a wonderful stay, thank you so much for sharing your villa. Loved the pool, the open plan design and we will be back.
The Cunninghams,, April 2016
We stayed there Feb 27-March 5 for a family vacation. We were pleased with everything, the house and pool were very nice and well taken care of. Amanda was also very responsive. The house is centrally location to just about everything, airport, Disney, restaurants, shopping ect. We would definitely stay here again!
Katie W, March 2016
The home was beautiful. I loved the pool. Amanda was very responsive. We would certainly stay here again. There is one or two things you should know before you book, in their check out policy they want the dishes washed and put away, not just washing in the dishwasher. They also request to have all of the trash emptied before you leave. When we were done there didn't seem to be much left for the housekeepers to do. These are things that you need to take into account if you have any early flight out of the area. Any other VRBO we've used we have been able to load the dishwasher and start it on the way out the door and then the cleaning service puts it away. It was not a big deal, but it would have been if we had an early flight, so plan accordingly. The other thing you should know is they have the AC set so you can't turn it below 72 degrees. That was perfectly comfortable for us, but if you really like to sleep cold you need to consider that. The house is beautiful, the location convenient and we strongly recommend the home if you are going to go to Disney.

Absolutely amazing! Will never stay at a hotel again
When I first booked this I will admit I was very nervous, as I had never done a rental property before but everyone kept telling me how I would love it once I tried it. They where 100% right. From the minute I clicked book it, my experience was nothing short of amazing. From having the actual home owner call me and give me tips on the best attractions around, and even free things to do in and around the surrounding areas. Amanda was amazing! Then to arrive at the home was unbelievable, my kids excitement was something I will always remember. The house was so clean! The pool and hot tub where perfect we also walked into a beautifully decorated lit Christmas tree that was such a wonderful touch. It made the experience so much more. I was feeling a little sad before leaving, that I was missing out at home with our own Christmas but this just made it so cozy!!!! I cannot wait to book at this property again, not one thing negative to say, only thing that worries me about writing this, is that the property will get so booked I won't be able to get it again😉 Absolutely the best experience eve

Lovely, Lovely place!
We had a such a beautiful week at your vacation villa. It was so clean, quiet and comfortable. So convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and all the Disney parks - we had a great time sampling all of it. Would definitely stay here again!

Date of arrival Apr 23, 2016
Just returned from staying at this well positioned villa. We especially enjoyed the pool after our long days at the nearby theme parks which were only 10 minutes away. The accommodation was well equipped and very clean. We sat on the patio for breakfast every morning, looking out over the conservation area and spotted a bird of prey, hot air balloons and skywriters(not all at once) Amanda was extremely helpful with good advice. would definitely recommend this great villa
I totally recommend this fantastic property for families wishing to enjoy what Florida has to offer. The property is extremely well maintained and the standard of cleanliness was the best I have experienced from many villa breaks. The facilities are first rate ... from a well equipped kitchen to the number of Ping-Pong balls. Generally the quality of the home helped us to get the most from our vacation. Windsor Palms is a great complex. The cinema in the "village" clubhouse is a must for the children! The booking process was easy and friendly and the tourist advice offered by the owner was of an excellent quality.
"We have just returned from a perfect holiday in Florida which was made all the more special by this exquisite and luxurious villa. After the heat and crowds of the theme parks it was wonderful to return to and relax by the lovely pool overlooking the conservation area. The resort of Windsor Palms was highly maintained and, being a gated community, very quiet and safe. And it is only 5-10 minutes drive from the Disney area and 5 minutes drive from a vast aray of restaurants, many of whom do a take-out service. The villa is beautifully decorated and maintained to a high and excellent standard. It is as wonderful as the pictures show. The air conditioned games room was a perfect retreat on a hot afternoon. We liked the door which lead directly to a bathroom from the patio/pool area. Great for the kids so they don't have to walk through the villa when they are dripping wet! The service we received from Amanda was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and she gave excellent advice as to the amenties in the local area. We felt our booking was very safe in her hands." Everything was faultless and we highly recommend this villa. You will not be disappointed."
June 2010. WOW..I would recommend this Villa to everyone. The owner has thought of everything and is extremley friendly & helpful. It will not disappoint. Decorated to a high standard,fully equiped, beautiful setting and very close to parks and H192. I will definately be coming back. A Huge Thankyou.. I have stayed in many villas in Florida but will in future only return to this one!! Excellant. This home was perfect for our group of six. The bedrooms were great. The pool was a welcome relaxation after a day of tennis or volleyball at the clubhouse or a day at the attractions. The home was very nicely appointed and very clean. The kitchen counters were even identical to those in our own home! We very much enjoyed our stay!
Doug , Chicago, Illinois
We had a great time staying in this beautiful home. So close to the Disney parks and the house had everything our family needed to make us feel right at home. The conservation area in the backyard makes you feel so peaceful at the end of a busy day. We would stay here again and advise friends to do the same. So glad I kept searching the internet until I found this villa! It was perfect.
Amanda, thanks for sharing your lovely "getaway" home with my family and I. We found it to be a perfect place to stay while enjoying Disney World. You thought of everything and it showed in your attention to details. We would definitely recommend your place to family and friends. I'm glad I found you on the Internet. Thanks so much!

I have rented homes on many trips to Disney. This is the second time we have rented your villa. The location can't be beat. Windsor Palms has all the amenities you could ask for. Iain, your property manager, was very friendly and quick to respond to anything that came up. The House was still in great shape since we rented it a year ago. I recommend everyone with kids or extended family rent a house instead of paying the high hotel prices in the area. We plan to stay in the villa again. I wish we could just keep it our little secret retreat and not tell anyone, but I am afraid the word is out. This is the best place to stay in Orlando!
The Marshall Family
We all had a wonderful time, especially the five children. They absolutely loved the game room and swimming pool! I don't think we ever had to put the TV on for them. Your villa definitely has the advantage of backing up to the conservation area. That privacy and beauty was a real asset (not to mention the cool frogs and crickets. We all had fun one morning extracting a frog from the pool. The kids were happy we could free this creature back into the wild). Iain was very helpful and accommodating. We just loved everything about your villa and the whole Disney World experience. I had not been to Disney since I was 10 years old. The children had never been. It was so nice coming home to your comfortable villa at the end of a long and hot day at Disney. Your directions worked marvelously. We appreciated greatly all of your sage advice and counsel, expecially about the Publix and logistics at Disney. We would love to rent your Villa again. Please keep us on your mailing/email list.

The villa was everything we were looking for and more. The kids enjoyed the pool every day for at least 2 hours. Air Hockey was the favorite game of everyone. A tropical storm poured on us for only half a day so the weather was great the rest of the time. We have rented houses on four different trips to Orlando and this was by far the best experience. Good directions, friendly guards, easy access to the key, the pool company cleaned up the pool area. There was plenty of closet space and the whole house was well kept and clean. We plan on staying there again next year. Many thanks.
The Marshall family
Thank you for the use of your fantastic villa. The location is superb,close to all the parks and eating establishments. The grandchildren enjoyed the pool and hot tub. It was nice to come home from a day at the park and relax in the pool.The villa had everything necessary for a wonderful vacation. We also had a week of terrific weather. Hope to return next year. Thank you again.
We had a wonderful time at your villa last week. It was everything we had hoped it would be. Very close to Disney and Sea World. When we needed a break from the parks the pool was a nice escape. We hope to return some day!

We came back a month ago and we are still talking about your wonderful house. We found it very comfortable and very well decorated. We loved the pool also and it is near everything such as Sea world and Disney.Who could ask for more ? Bon voyage à tous!
HAVING RENTED VARIOUS HOLIDAY HOMES IN ORLANDO OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM OUR SECOND STAY IN YOURS AND AGREE THAT IT MORE THAN MEEETS ALL REQUIREMENTS. THE GATED ENTRANCE BRINGS SECURITY , WINDSOR PALMS IS EXTREMELY WELL MAINTAINED WITH GOOD FACILITIES, AND THE VILLA IS IMMACULATE BOTH INSIDE AND OUT BY THE POOL. THE LAYOUT OF THE INTERIOR IS EXCELLENT FOR EITHER A COUPLE ON THEIR OWN OR A LARGE FAMILY, YOU HAVE THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING TO PROVIDE A WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME, WHICH WILL AGAIN BE OUR FIRST CHOICE FOR OUR NEXT VISIT. THANKYOU

North Yorkshire, England
Thank you for letting us stay in your spacious villa for 3 weeks. the pool was fantastic and very soothing after days at the parks(which are really only 5mins away). Down to the small details you will find yourself relaxed and home from home. I am sure my 5 year old daughter preferred to stay by the pool than see Mickey Mouse. The letting agent and pool man was fantastic and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this villa, and i would not hesitate in renting it again on our next trip to Orlando.
We had a lovely time. Your home is indeed wonderful! I really like the decor.
JC, February 2003
We want to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation at your beautiful Windsor Palms home. The decorating is exquisite, the amenities are terrific, and the location is wonderful. We had a fabulous time and would like to rent again next year for a month.

The home was beautiful! Also, this is the first time I have ever stayed any place where we had our own pool- and it was so much fun. Thanks for everything.
SB, April 2003
Just arriving back from an absolutely wonderful time at your magnificent home in Orlando. Beautifully decorated and with all the comforts one would need.....everyone in our party (especially the kids) had a great time. I will be passing on your email address & website to at least one of our neighbors very interested in your property...they'll be visiting Orlando in October. Again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the home to anyone. All in all a very memorable vacation.....thanks again for sharing your home with us. I'll stay in touch, as we are very excited about a return trip next year.
BL, April 2003
We had a great vacation. Your home is just lovely. We did not have one single problem with the house. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips. Your home is decorated very nicely. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Should I ever return to Orlando on vacation, or if someone I know is planning to vacation there, I will be sure to look you up again or give them your email address. Thanks again.

We had a wonderful holiday and your house was lovely with everything we needed.
JM, June 2003
Everything was wonderful! We were so pleased with the house. The community was beautiful. We enjoyed walking/running in the neighborhood for exercise. Our house was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed in. Everything was decorated beautifully. We were very pleased with kitchen area as it was stocked with all the necessities. We totally enjoyed the whole house. My children especially enjoyed the hot tub and pool area with all of the pool toys that you provided. I am sure we will be returning next year.
RC, July 2003
We had a great vacation and were especially impressed with your house. We plan on visiting again next year.
