We invite you and your family to stay at Villa By The Castle!
Situated 1.5 miles from Disney, our family friendly 6-bedroom, 4-bath home provides all the comforts needed for a relaxing & enjoyable stay. Villa By The Castle is professionally managed and owner operated to provide our guests a more personal experience.
This home away from home has been decorated with our guests needs in mind. We are constantly striving to update the villa so that our guests have the best experience possible.
The villa is located in the gated resort community of Windsor Hills. It is fully air conditioned throughout, including the game room -- the crowd favorite. The game room was recently renovated and is the ultimate stress free zone. You’ll have your choice of playing pool, foosball, air hockey & darts.
Another great area to lounge in is the spacious great room, here you can watch your favorite movies on a 70” 3D LED TV (3D glasses included) & surround sound system. All the bedrooms have a 40” or 32” LED TVs. The living room has a 55” LED TV, so everyone will have plenty of options when it comes to watching their favorite shows.
There is Free WIFI throughout the house & free access to the Netflix house account on all the TVs.
When it’s time to unwind, just relax and take a dip in the heated pool & hot tub (heated year round for your comfort). The entire pool deck is screened in and is surrounded by lush green hedges for added privacy. The private covered lanai is a great place to relax with your favorite drink while the kids have a blast in the pool. There is also a pool fence to keep the little ones safe.
On the days when you’ll prefer to prepare your own meals, you can venture outdoors on the pool deck and BBQ. The rest of the family can join you in the covered lanai, under the breeze from the outdoor fan. If you decide to stay indoors and enjoy a movie while you prepare your meals, our kitchen is fully equipped and offers all the tools you’ll need.
Check-in and check-outs are smooth and simple with our secure keyless entry system. You’ll be able to go straight to the house at check-in and leave without having to pick up or drop off keys.
While in Windsor Hills, you’ll have full access to all of the resort’s amenities. The club house is a short walk from the villa. There, you’ll find a double-Olympic sized pool (kids love the double spiral water slide, dancing water fountain & splash pad), the movie theater and the convenience store. There’s also a castle playground right around the corner from the villa for the little ones in the family.
The villa is not only minutes from Disney but close to lots of restaurants (TGI Fridays, Carraba’s Italian Grill, Cracker Barrel, Outback Steak House, IHOP & Denny’s) & shopping (Target, Publix, 7-11 & Walmart). It’s centrally located for you and your family to enjoy all that the Disney area has to offer.

We love to travel as a family and became devoted vacation home renters. From Florida to France, from the moment we had our first vacation rental experience in OBX, we were hooked. It was such an intimate & happy experience for our family and we still have lasting memories from those trips. This is the only way we travel and wanted to also want to pass on this experience to families staying in our Villa.
Steve and Sandy purchased this villa in 2014
We chose Windsor Hills vacation resort as the resort for our vacation house because of how close Windsor Hills (2 miles) is to Disney and how established The Windsor Hills community is.
We chose Villa By The Castle in Windsor Hills because of it's closeness to all the amenities that Windsor Hills offers.
Not only is the villa one of the closest private houses to the clubhouse all of the Windsor Hills amenities are just a short walk away.
In our opinion the house was perfectly situated in Windsor Hills since it was close to everything Windsor Hills offers and the positioning of the house offered plenty of sunlight throughout the day and the pool has plenty of that fantastic Florida sun.
Villa By The Castle has a heated pool and spa, large covered lanai, 70 inch 3-D HD LED TV, 3-D BluRay Player, XBox One With Kinect, a play station 2 in the Mickey room and flower room, an LED TV (either 32' or 40') and Blu-ray player in every bedroom.
The brand new game room has just been completed and features an 8 foot professional pool table, air hockey and foosball table. The game room has wall to wall carpeting, air conditioning and heating.
We have several pool games available FREE for your use including a pool-side basketball hoop.
We have a lot of baby gear FREE for your use during your stay, including a high chair, pack n plays, a jogging stroller, crib, baby monitor, excersaucer, bed rails, a baby gate and a baby bottle sterilizer.
During your stay you'll have use of a 4 burner stainless steal grill including propane free of charge.
The villa is close to all that Windsor Hills has to offer, in fact the villa is one of the closest private houses at less than a 2 minute walk to the water slide!
The house is lovely. The whole family enjoyed every minute of our stay. Very nice location too.
This home has all the comforts of home and then some. Spacious and beautifully decorated, yet kid friendly with game room and heated pool. Also, very close to the theme parks. Bonus, clubhouse with heated community pool, large slide and other activities (within walking distance). Owners were very easy to work with and responded almost immediately with answers to all of our concerns. Definitely will be returning and highly recommend this home.
Loved our stay. The villa is well fitted out with TVs, consoles and gadgets. Owners were helpful and responsive to questions that we had. We have already rebooked to stay again in the summer.
Perfect house. If you are agonizing on selecting a property (like I was) then pick this one now. The owners, Steve and Sandy, have gone to great lengths to make sure guests have everything needed for a delightful stay. I mean everything. We had a group of 8 with ages between 82 and 17 and everyone was happy with all the house had to offer. I slept in the master bedroom and I slept like a rock (I track my sleep and I got way more deep sleep than normal!). Everyone was very comfortable with the beds. It was very nice that there were 2 bedrooms with King beds, which is hard to find. The pool was enjoyed by all. My daughter and I used the clubhouse pool only once but it was very nice too. The best thing is that we could go to Disney parks and come home and take a very comfortable break and then some could easily go back. We were really visiting to celebrate my nephew's graduate degree from Florida Tech and it will be a week that we will always remember. My wife missed this trip but I plan to bring her back and stay at this house again. Many thanks to Steve and Sandy for the great communication and thoughtfulness for making our stay a delight. --Joe Schenk
To summarize this stay in a word, "Perfect". Thank you, thank you, thank you for a very nice stay at your home. Grandpa and Granny didn't get to join us this trip however, us and our five children really enjoyed our stay. It could not have been better. Your home is huge and laid out perfectly. The billion bedrooms and zillion bathrooms were perfect (per our kids). The beds were very comfortable and all of the little extras were very much appreciated. We didn't even use 3 of the bedrooms/bathrooms! This house would have been roomy for double our group +! Even though the weather was perfect our children did not want to go to Disney, they wanted to stay at the house and swim! We utilized the stroller, again perfect! Laundry and dish soap, trash bags and towels galore! Not every rental supplies those little things but, those little extras really make the stay that much more enjoyable (not to mention the little food welcome pack). Again, just perfect! Keep doing what you are doing, it worked very well for us. Just minutes from Disney and we even made the 25 minute trip to Lego-Land one day. What a trip! Your house made it a fantastic one. We will never stay on Disney grounds again. See you next time!
God bless you,
Dan and Carmen
We took a gamble, and it paid off. We had never stayed outside of Disney before. Now we will never go back to the cramped hotels, loud commotion and overpriced rooms. Our family of 4 had more room than we could handle (6 bedrooms!), which was great for relaxing and spreading out after long days at Disney. We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Windsor Hills. So much to offer and so little stress.
Sandy and Steve were absolutely wonderful to deal with and helped us plan our trip well in advance and were always available via a quick email or phone call if needed. We enjoyed the pool off the back of the house, and actually never made it to the clubhouse and community pool/arcade...etc. until day 6 since we were more than satisfied just at home. I don't think we even made it into the game room because the kids never got out of the pool.......
I highly recommend their home if you're looking for an option outside of Disney. So easy to get to all of the parks (and Sea World) from here, and tons of restaurant and entertainment options within just a few miles. Not a big deal to hit Disney for a few hours, come back and relax, and head back to Disney at night. We will definitely be back next time out to Disney. Thanks Sandy and Steve for a wonderful vacation.
We've been to Disney World many times but normally stay on the Disney grounds. Having our own Villa in a quiet location but so close to Disney was the perfect way to start and finish each day. It felt like home. Steve and Sandy were the best and replied to any question or need we had within minutes, both before and during our stay. We traveled with our son, his wife and their two children (4&6). We enjoyed the pool at the house and spent 2 days hanging around the community pool, which was very large and had a slide and concession stand, plus 5 days at different Disney parks. I enjoyed the days at the pool as much as the time at Disney World. The house was huge, there were plenty of games and videos to keep everyone entertained and we enjoyed playing pool and air hockey in the completely finished and air conditioned game room (garage). The house was fully furnished with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils, and they even had strollers. The welcome package was a nice touch too. Our 3 other kids and their families can't wait to come and stay at this Villa too. Awesome place and great owners who sincerely want you to have an exceptional vacation.
