Do you dream of warm afternoons, frolicking in your private pool ?

Do you see yourself organizing family game night, of the pool and air hockey variety?

Do you envision your family, snuggled on a soft sofa, gathered for a movie marathon?

Do you imagine walking to the golf course, or to the spa, or to your resort movie theater?

When you think vacation, do you seek luxury?

Do you prefer professional décor and upscale furnishings, soft linens and fine finishes? Do you wish for 5-star, resort-style amenities, like saltwater pools and professional massages, bubbling whirlpools and a fully equipped gym?

When you think of vacation, do you prioritize location? And free Wi-Fi that covers the whole house and the pool deck?

Do you crave a prime locale, just three miles to Disney’s main gate? Do you want to be close enough to hear the fireworks, but not so close you have to fight the crowds?

Villa Palmera is Disney-beyond: a luxurious villa in a prestigious location – pretty much the closest you can get to Disney, without staying within the park – but with all the 5-star amenities of a luxury resort - gated and with a security guard 24/7.

Villa Palmera is the choice for discerning Disney vacations. Villa Palmera is for you.



In life, we all make compromises. That’s why vacation – that much-awaited escape from everyday life – should be about anything but compromise. You deserve the best, especially when it comes to location. Especially when you’re visiting Disney.

In Disney terms, there’s location and then there’s Location. The prestigious community of Windsor Palms, home to Villa Palmera, sits in the latter column: About three miles to Disney’s main entrance, it’s as close as private homes can get to the Mouse and his very magical kingdom. (See bullet points, below, for drive times.)

For quick-grab necessities, there’s a convenience store at Windsor Palms. For everything else, well-stocked supermarkets and shopping are just a few minutes away by car. And there are plenty of restaurants, too, from big-name favorites to best-kept Kissimmee secrets.

We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Palmera is located about 3 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means:

• Animal Kingdom: 5 minutes (faster, if you hit the green lights!)

• Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 10 minutes

• Magic Kingdom: 20 minutes

• Universal Studios: 25 minutes

• Sea World: 20 minutes

• LEGOLAND: 30 minutes

• Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: About 75 minutes



Windsor Palms is a resort-style community of upscale extras. Just a two-minute walk from your front door, you’ll have access to a suite of 5-star amenities: an Olympic-sized saltwater pool, a separate toddler/children’s pool, a whirlpool/spa, a fitness room and gym, a movie theater, Nintendo Wii suite and video arcade, lighted basketball and tennis courts, volleyball, a playground, and more.



Does someone in your party love to golf? At Villa Palmera, you’re within walking distance of the Mystic Dunes Golf Club and just a few minutes’ drive to several other courses, including Orange Lake Country Club & Resort – Lake Orange, Orange Lake Country Club & Resort – Legends, Orange Lake Country Club & Resort – Legends Walk, Orange Lake Country Club & Resort – Cypress, ChampionsGate Golf Club, Walt Disney World Resort Golf, and other clubs.



Vacation should be special, shouldn’t it? When you only have one or two weeks a year, you should spend it pampered. You should spend it surrounded by little touches of luxury, of indulgence.

You deserve an escape. You deserve Villa Palmera, one of the most prestigious and luxurious homes in the Disney area. One of only nine 4-bedroom luxury Disney homes chosen for HomeAway’s luxury listings site.

With the help of a professional interior designer, we’ve added special touches throughout the villa: extra plush sofas and elegant built-ins, perfect pool lighting and granite surfaces, flat-screen TVs and a themed game room, designer décor and sumptuous linens.

It’s upscale but not fussy, sophisticated but fun – right down to the themed (but not over-the-top) children’s bedrooms. Welcome.



When in Florida, do as the Floridians do: Play outside!

Villa Palmera invites you to step outside and enjoy the sun, starting on the spacious pool deck and lanai, complete with outdoor lighting, pool loungers, and a patio table for alfresco dining. Even better, the whole pool area is screened – no mosquitos! So you can play, dine, swim and lounge, beneath the year-round Florida sun.

Inside, your family can spread out in the sophisticated-yet-comfy living room, home to two large sofas, an accent chair and widescreen TV. (Who’s up for movie night?) Of course, if you’re in the mood for a bit more competition than a movie can bring to the table, head into the game room and challenge your group to air hockey, pool, or a PlayStation marathon.



It turns out, not all pools are created equal.

If you love swimming laps, if you love sunbathing, if you love late-night swims, you’ll adore Villa Palmera’s pool: South-facing and sun-drenched, it’s large, and well lighted, and absolutely perfect for everything from splashing to laps.

And unlike many pools in the area, ours enjoys near-privacy: fenced off from the neighbors and only open to the rear, here you can swim without worrying who’s watching.



Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed free WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. So go on, upload that poolside selfie.



Traveling with grandparents, extended family, or friends is wonderful – except when it comes time to divvy up the bedrooms. Who gets the best?

Never flip for the master bedroom again; Villa Palmera has two! The primary master suite features a king-sized bed, flat-screen TV, walk-in closet, pool access, and an elegant private bathroom with Roman tub, walk-in shower and double vanity. The secondary master suite offers a plush queen-sized bed, flat-screen TV, and private attached bathroom with walk-in shower.



Our two twin rooms feature light, sophisticated theming: the pink room and the adventure room. Both boast comfy beds and flat-screen TVs – perfect for those late-night movie marathons that make vacations so special for kids! – and share a Jack-and-Jill full bathroom.

Plenty of towels and high quality linens are provided for all four bedrooms.



From kids to kids-at-heart, everyone (but especially Cars movie aficionados!) love Villa Palmera’s game room. A pool (billiards) table and air hockey bring out the competition in your group, while the adjoining entertainment area offers a wall-mounted TV with integrated DVD player. There’s even a PlayStation 3, so please bring your favorite games with you.



Sometimes, luxury is in the little things: In sipping your first cup of coffee before you’re really awake, in enjoying a poolside breakfast in your pyjamas, in whizzing up a milkshake as an afternoon treat for the kids, in popping some popcorn for a late-night movie.

Really, luxury can be as simple as having your own kitchen for vacation, even if you don’t plan to cook. So, for all your needs, from a simple bowl of cereal to a multi-course family dinner, we’ve equipped Villa Palmera with everything you need: a full breakfast bar, granite worktops and stainless-steel appliances (oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher), as well as all the pots and pans, dinnerware, and other accoutrements you could need.

Go ahead, make yourself at home. Pyjamas welcome!



Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.

We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.



We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday.

But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic.

About Stephen Ward


Customer service is the cornerstone of our business, and we know it all begins the moment you first email us. We’re always at the ready, so we respond generally within the hour and sometimes within minutes. That’s 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We’ll never leave you hanging.

Of course, it’s not just about how quickly we respond, but about the quality of our responses. This is the part where we tell you how much we love the Disney area, and how excited we are to share it with you. And did we mention? We’ve been on both sides of the fence – more than 15 years ago, we first came here as renters – so we know what matters to you.

Want some great restaurant recommendations? We’ve got ‘em.

Need discount park tickets? We know how to snag them.

Searching for the cheapest car rentals? Not a problem.

Seeking the best microbrews in Florida? We’ll point the way.

Looking for Segway rentals? We know where.

When you rent with us, you’re treated to very personal (and very free!) vacation planning and concierge service. Everything you need, plus all that you could want. So go on, mine our knowledge for all it’s worth. That’s what we’re here for.



We are fully licensed at both the county and state levels. First and foremost, that means we follow the rules and prioritize your safety: We’ve installed fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting in all the right places. We maintain tight safety measures at our pools. And all our homes are subject to periodic inspection, by the county and state, so you know that we’re still up-to-date on those safety requirements.

Our vacation rentals are legal and above-board. We pay our taxes. You can check our existence in the public records. (Feel free to ask how. We’re happy to share.)

It all boils down to this: You, your family, and your friends are safe with us. Your booking is secure.

Why Stephen Ward chose Kissimmee


Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation.

You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be.

We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight.

Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years, so we’re also good for those restaurant recommendations. Ask us where to find the best cheesy chips.)

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is top of our list of favorite vacation rentals. Great location with easy access to main highways and really close to Disney; quiet neighborhood, great floor plan and lots of space for everyone with comfortable chairs, sofas and beds; really enjoyed how nicely decorated it is, clean and well maintained; particularly the kitchen where often times in rentals we find tired dishes, pots and pans. Here, they were like new and the kitchen was well equipped, so we truly appreciated the attention to detail. We would love to rent it again for future Orlando trips.
