Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Home/Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) close to clubhouse



This sunny, spacious and beautifully appointed villa will be an ideal ‘Home at Disney’ for your vacation. If you want to be in the closest 5* Gated Resort in a 5* home, look here! This is one of the few villas offering a stand-alone hot tub with the private pool. The villa is decorated and furnished to a high standard, with many recent updates/upgrades, including brand new air conditioning, new pool heater, flat screen TVs in each of the bedrooms, tiled flooring through the main living area (bedrooms still warmly carpeted) and a new jungle-themed games room. Situated on a quiet circle and not overlooked to the rear, it is a short stroll around the corner to the clubhouse, where you can enjoy the Olympic-sized pool, pool-side bar, sundries shop, exercise room or take a shuttle to the Disney property.

Our Home at Disney is the perfect place to return to at the end of a long day with all the comforts of home. You can relax around the pool with a glass of wine and plan your next adventure. There’s so much to see and do in the area that you will need an occasional day to simply chill out in the home while the children have fun in the private heatable swimming pool.

In our convenient, well equipped home you can relax in the private pool and hot tub, play PS2 games, pool or air hockey with your family and enjoy wireless high speed internet access. Special child features include a Disney-themed room, board games and a PS2 PlayStation. We also share children’s books and movies for your use.

The two master bedrooms each have bathrooms en suite. Both have King-sized beds, and one has a large jetted soaking tub. The third bathroom sits between the two bedrooms with the twin beds and all are convenient to the Great Room. Guests may easily access one of the bathrooms right off the lanai, convenient to the pool.



Windsor Palms is a gated community offering its guests free unlimited use of these welcoming facilities - large swimming pool and spa, children's pool and playground, BBQ areas, gym, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and its very own 58 seat movie theatre. At the clubhouse as a guest you will also find a games room with pool tables, table tennis, bicycles, Wii room and a video games arcade.

Located just a few minutes from Disney’s parks and close to shops and restaurants, this is a perfect base for your trip to the Sunshine State and a relaxing haven from the crowds after a day in the parks. Find time to enjoy some of the many activities Kissimmee has to offer - ballooning, parasailing, wildlife parks, go-karts, spa treatments and much, much more!



This is our family vacation home and we can only spend a few weeks here each year until we retire. We hope you enjoy the feel of the home as much as we do. Please come, relax and enjoy time with your family. Borrow a paperback and return the next year to exchange for another one.

About Terri Martinez

My husband and I are from Rockville, Maryland. I am a Maryland native and Albert is originally from San Antonio, Texas.

We met dancing over 20 years ago and still take every opportunity to dance together or with our daughter. Our daughter is young and we have found ourselves visiting Disney a couple times a year where we enjoy seeing her experience the magic every time.

Terri Martinez purchased this house in 2011

Why Terri Martinez chose Disney / Orlando

For us, when we stayed on Disney property we sometimes felt it wasn't cost effective to go visit another park or to stay away from the park and just swim and relax for a couple days.

So we tried staying at a pool villa. We had already chosen to stay in homes rather than hotels in our other travels and always found it to expand on the experience.

Our favority parts about staying in a pool villa are waking up and having breakfast together in our pajamas, playing in the pool together as a family and,before or after our little one is in bed, staying up late cuddled up to watch a movie together or relaxing in the hot tub after a fun-filled day.

We chose Windsor Palms because it offered a perfect combination for us - it is safe (gated and guarded), has beautiful private and sunny pool homes, offers a great club house and ammenities, and is so close to the attractions we want to experience.

What makes this house unique

I love the décor in our home. We are closest to the Animal Kingdom and our daughter adores monkeys and cheetahs and lions, so we thought it would be fun to have a bit of the jungle in our home. The games room is our zebra room and our master bedroom has lion bedding. I think the little touches of jungle are fun and add to the experience of being truly on vacation.

We also love having the pool right and lanai right off the great room. While it is most fun to play in the pool with my family, there are times I need to work. On the occasion we have to do some work while away I can let my daughter swim while I sit in the shade with my computer, have a coffee and focus on both work and her safety.

I also love how close we are to the clubhouse. When we want to meet folks at the pool or take in a movie on a rainy day, it is great to walk just around the corner to get there. The community is great for walking. My cousin and I take a morning walk and the resort is safe a lovely for taking a brisk walk or a leisurely stroll.

Perfect Place for our Orlando Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our biggest requirement for a vacation home was enough space to unwind after surviving busy days in the theme parks. This home delivered wonderfully. Plenty of bedroom and communal space (and cheerfully decorated), numerous in-home entertainment options, safe location, and everything in great working condition . The backyard pool was a real bonus and was enjoyed by our three sons daily. The kitchen had all the tools and accessories we needed to prepare meals.

It was nice being away from any main thoroughfares but still within a few miles of restaurants and stores. While we opted to drive on our excursions it was nice to know that a shuttle was an option for some of these adventures had we so desired. All-in-all we had a great vacation and being able to stay in Terri's home was a big part of the success.

Owner's Response: Dear Andy, We are so delighted your family enjoyed your experience with the home and that it met your expectations. As much fun as the parks are (and they are amazing!), it is such a relief to come home to your own private home and to have enough room and options to really unwind and relax with your family. We are so glad you found our home to be the end-of-day oasis we intended it to be. Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with our future guests. And please do bring your family back - we love our return guests! Best Regards, Terri

Everything was awesome. The house helped us feel so welcomed that we did not want to leave. We felt so "at home " that we were scrambling to get everything done before we left on the day of checkout. We look forward to returning next year, hopefully to the same property. We only had one small maintenance request , but it was literally fixed within a couple hours. Everyone we came in contact with was very helpful both prior to arrival and during our stay.

Automated keyless entry was nice. Did prevent us from checking in early as time was set for 4pm so we waited for hour and half in the clubhouse - no biggie. Close to Disney parks was nice.

Owner's Response: Dear Kevin, Thank you so much for the review. We were delighted to have your family as guests and will be very happy to welcome you back. Our keyless entry requires we have any early arrival or late departure arranged in advance to meet everyone's expectations. We have frequently made that possible for our guests when we can do so. Unfortunately that is not usually possible when we have a departure and arrival on the same day with cleaners fitting a full house clean and an inspection in between. We are sorry that was not feasible to arrange for your stay since we had guests departing the day you arrived. We are grateful to have a wonderful cleaner and property manager who know it is most important to us that the home is in the expected condition for our guests. We are also glad that you took the opportunity to avail yourselves of the clubhouse. It is a fun place to spend some time in or by the pool and the shower is so helpful if someone wants to spend more time at the resort after check-out and before a late flight. Again, thank you for taking the time for the kind review. Warm regards, Terri and Albert This additional comment is added here for future guests because we were asked for more information on this review by a potential guest. This addition is in no way intended to scold our guest Kevin who was a great guest (and we would sincerely welcome your return Kevin). And Kevin is correct that our key code did not allow early entry. But to be clear for future guests, in this prior situation, no prior arrangements were made for an early arrival. And our contract specifies no early arrival or late departure unless pre-arranged. Our guest attempted to request early entry AFTER arriving early and was unable to enter since arrangements had not been made and the key code is set for the time agreed upon in our contract. Whenever we do make early arrival arrangements, the key code is set to allow for the early entry. Those early arrival or late departure arrangements can be made with us upon our discretion if we do not yet have back-to-back bookings and usually for an additional fee. While we are happy to accommodate requests, the arrival or departure time can impact whether we can book another guest for that day or may not provide time between already booked guests for cleaning and inspection. During high season therefore, we may not accept a request for early arrival or late departure.

Wonderful Home Near Disney

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in Windsor Palms Resort! We've stayed at this resort five times and this was our favorite house. The owners are responsive and attentive. The home is well stocked with everything you need for a vacation. Tons of things to do here! We enjoyed the pool table, air hockey, swimming pool and hot tub at the house as well as the theater, pool, tennis and basketball on property. And the house is very near the clubhouse with a private backyard. Our five (teen and above) children loved having so many options. Bonus is the easy access to Disney, water parks, shopping, and dining.

In the house you have excellent wifi available with coverage throughout (garage and poolside included which was nice for the teens). There are older tvs and video games in the main room and garage but flat screens in the bedrooms (all four).

Kitchen and laundry have older appliances that worked perfectly and were exceptionally clean on arrival. A nice bonus compared to most places. Tons of dishware and silverware. There is everything you need to cook meals. They also had a cooler, travel mugs, water park mugs and more available.

The owners were great to deal with and very responsive to questions and requests. The property managers were also friendly and responsive. Can't beat having such a great four bedroom house for the cost of a hotel room!!

Highly recommended!! We will definitely stay here again on a trip to Disney!

PS They have strollers and baby toys and a portable crib if you have little ones.

Perfect luxury home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home and it was everything we intended! Also most importantly we booked the day before because of an unforeseen issue with our booked rental. I don't advise last minute rentals however, the home owner worked with us and made it happen a few hours before we arrived! Everything was perfect we enjoyed our stay and will return! Thanks again Terri for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Cherie, We also do not recommend last minute rentals - to protect both renter and homeowner. This was a special circumstance and we wanted to help but it took some effort for us to be comfortable with the reservation. We sincerely appreciated that you were understanding of our additional verification requests. And most importantly, in the end we were just so very glad to be able to help and to provide a great place for you to enjoy your vacation. We will look forward to your return and hope you will be a 'regular'. All our best regards, Terri and Albert
