Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 (8 adults/kids +1 baby)

2 king suites, private pool/spa, grill included, 5* resort at Windsor Palms

BEST LOCATION! NO REAR NEIGHBORS! One of the closest villas to the clubhouse!!

If you do not want to be stuck in long lines of traffic going to Disney (and they get really long the further you are away and we give you directions to go a special back way when you book with us!) then stay here. If you like staying in one of the only 5 star gated communities that is 3 miles from Disney, look here and forget the rest! Welcome to Magical Day Villa two, our home away from home. We have all flat screen TVs -55 inch in the living room and 32 inch in each of the bedrooms (not just the master suites!). We have new linens and towels through out every year. We have two master suites, each with their own king bed and bathroom. The larger of the two master bedrooms, has double sinks and a large jetted tub. There is also a large walk in closet. The second master king bedroom has a bathroom with a standup shower, sink and toilet. The other two bedrooms have twin beds. One of the twin bedrooms was decorated with our younger guests in mind with the Mickey Mouse and friends theme. Each of the bedrooms has a 32 inch flat screen TV as well. There is a shared third bathroom for the twin bedrooms. Each bathroom has its own hair dryer so you don’t have to bring one.

There are two separate eating areas in our almost 2000 sq. foot home. One is an eating nook that is part of the living room that seats 4 people and the other is in the kitchen and seats 6 people. There are also bar stools for eating at the kitchen island. The whole kitchen/living/dining area is open concept, so when you are in the kitchen you can still talk to people in the living room and dining areas. The living area is beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture so you can relax after a long day at the parks watching the 55 inch flat screen TV. There is free WIFI and free US/Canada telephone calls.

The kitchen comes equipped with all the pots, pans, plates, utensils, cups and electrics that you will need to enjoy your stay. There is an oven, microwave, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster. Off the kitchen is a separate laundry area with a washer and dryer and iron and ironing board for your laundering convenience.

And if a swim is what you had in mind, our home features a large swimming pool and Jacuzzi-spa. The pool is south facing so it gets the sun all day long. There are NO REAR neighbors, so you won't have anyone looking in on you when you take a swim. There is a pool fence to protect our young guests from taking a swim on their own. There are also pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool. Under our covered patio we have a table and chairs where you can have a snack while you take a dip in the pool. There are also separate lounging chairs for just laying out by the pool enjoying the sun or reading a good book. There are various pool toys to enjoy too. We provide pool towels too, so you don't have to bring some from home!

For the real little ones, we have a pack 'n play with a sheet, a high chair and a toddler bed rail.

We have a games room in the garage, with a pool table, a ping pong table and a darts board!

Pool/spa heat is always OPTIONAL at $30/day. They function as a unit and are either both heated or not.

Our home is also a short walk (2 minutes) from The Windsor Palms clubhouse. Everything at the clubhouse is free with your rental and includes a large, communal pool (salt water) and toddler pool, a convenience store with Starbucks coffee and any supplies you might need in a pinch. Also at the clubhouse are many different games, pool tables, a Wii game room, a 50+ person movie theater, a workout gym, a business center with computers that are free to use, a sand volleyball court, a kids playground, a bike rental area and grills. The clubhouse just added a brand new Tiki bar at the pool, so guests can come relax and eat at the pool!

During high rental times (holidays, spring break and summer), we might require Sat. - Sat. stays.

We have a new weber grill for you to use for a BBQ whenever you like.

Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club is across the street and just down the street, about a mile away, as are numerous restaurants and grocery stores.

Harley-Davidson is just down the street if you want to rent a motorcycle and cruise around the area!

Besides the free WIFI at our villa, we also offer free calls in the US and Canada.

About Carrie

We are from the midwest.

Carrie purchased this villa in 2013

Why Carrie chose Kissimmee

We looked at a lot of the other communities in the area and nothing was as nice as The Windsor Palms. The 4 bedroom, 3 bath villas with their open floor plans can't be beat.

What makes this villa unique

Gated community, no rear neighbors, south facing pool, super close to the clubhouse!

Great vacation home for families!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for ten days and loved this property. We had five adults and one baby and found the house to be very spacious. They provided a pack & play, stroller and high chair which was a huge help when travelling with a baby. Would definitely recommend this property!

Thoughtful Owner

  • 5 of 5

First, Carrie the owner is very thoughtful. I originally rented a different property of hers around the block, but before I arrived Carrie called to see if I would like to stay in this one due to problems w/internet& cable being out. I had viewed this property also and took her up on the offer. I stayed during hurricane Irma, Carrie had her property managers come over to put away the pool furniture & they were kind enough to make room in the garage for my rental car. During Irma we did not lose power & Carrie sent an email asking how we fared the storm. She even responded immediately when I had a question about locking the door from outside. Carrie's home is the quality you should expect from owners on VRBO! Just want to say, Thanks for looking after us, even w/the storm it was a relaxing week.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a nice review. We want our guests to enjoy their vacation as much as they can and are glad to hear that you enjoyed it in spite of the hurricane! It was our pleasure to help. We look forward to hosting you when there aren't any hurricanes passing through:)

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a week long stay in this house and everything was great! The kids loved the pool, which stayed nice and warm all week. Everything was in working order throughout the house. We had a great stay!

Very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of six. It had everything we needed for our week stay. The pool was nice and very clean. The kids enjoyed having their own bathroom and the game room was great!

Good location, clean. Nice clubhouse. Only minor issues.

  • 3 of 5

We just returned from a one week stay at this property. The house is in a great location, close to many restaurants, shopping and theme parks. We also found it to be very clean and tidy when we arrived. We did have a couple of issues when we arrived. One toilet did not flush well without holding the handle down for 10-15 seconds and one TV remote did not work. Also the pool was quite dirty when we arrived. I did call the management company and they arrived the next day. The pool was cleaned out nicely but they didn't find any "issue" with our other two problems. I found the manager to be somewhat "snippy" with me so we just switched out the remotes with another room and held the toilet handle down for the length of our stay. Easy fix. We also had some confusion on the pool/ spa. If you want a "hot" tub, you must request the heat to be turned on. Even then, the spa never gets very hot. We had never rented a house with this set up before so we were unaware of this. I contacted the owner and this was discussed and the heat was turned on for us after we arrived which made the pool very pleasant. The spa was still not warm enough to be a hot tub. Just go to the clubhouse if you want a hot tub. Also, just a FYI, the pool/spa area is not handicapped accessible. So if you are traveling with someone who needs this I would not suggest this property. It would be great if they had a hand rail into the pool and hot tub as it turned out to be unuseable for my older mother with very poor mobility. Also, the sliding door in the kitchen does not work well at all so just use the one in the living room. You might find small lizards in the house in the morning as they can get in under the sliding doors. We found two and just released them back out in the yard. One last thing that we found sort of surprising. While we found to house to be well equipped with utensils, cooking items, and towels, we had to go purchase toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, hand soap, and basic food items like salt and pepper, etc. the owner did inform me after our arrival that Florida law prohibits stocking of basic food spices etc, but that the house should have some of the other items which it did not. We have rented VRBOs many times so buying all the supplies was a first for us.

With all that said, we had a nice week in sunny Florida and made the most of our stay. The owner is very responsive to questions so be sure to ask about everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Stacy. So sorry you had any issues. We follow FL law when it comes to what we can and cannot have in our villa, so even though it might be disappointing or confusing to some, we are not willing to violate the law, not matter how small. Anything we can provide, we do and are more than happy to do so! Our manager did his best to make this guest happy and checked on everything to ensure it was in proper working order and it was. No issue with the toilet or any of the remotes. The toilet handle just needs to be held down for a second or two to flush. We went and checked on the villa ourselves after this guest left. We stayed for a week and had no issues. There is one door leading from the dining area of the kitchen to the pool that it locked and not to be used because it is too close to the eating area. The other door from the living room, that is 1 foot away, is the sliding door that is marked for use. There is no issue getting in and out to the pool. The pool and spa are combined. The spa feeds into the pool. It is not a separate hot tub. It does not get as hot as a separate hot tub would. There are no hand rails for the pool or spa, but the villa is single story and has no steps, so has been used by people with limited mobility before without any issue. In the future, would could look into maybe getting something like that, but it hasn't been an issue in the 3 years that we have owned the villa. All villas in FL provide enough soap, toilet paper and cleaning supplies to get guests started for the week. After that, it is the guests responsibility to determine what is needed to suit their stay. Everyone is different. In other parts of the country, like the New Jersey shore, you have to bring everything you need including sheets(all bedding), towels, and any supplies. We provide all that and do our best to make guests feel like this is a home away from home.

Location for Disney is really nice!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice villa home for the price of staying a week, however when we arrived we did find some things that were damaged within the property such as the one sliding glass door on the kitchen side- it would get stuck and not close so we had to use the one in the living room area to get to the pool. There was also a problem with ants at this property in the pool area and out front of the garage door where they were getting into our vehicles. We did use the can of RAID that was left there but they still continued to show up. Other than this issue, the house was very nice with all the amenities it was equipped with as well as the clubhouse amenities. Great for families going to Disney for it is just a short distance. Would consider staying again here if available and the ant problem is taken care of. Stayed in numerous properties in that gated community before and never had problems with ants.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, Sandra! I appreciate you bringing the sliding door to my attention. We had actually attempted to disable that sliding door as it is too close to the eating area. The slider right next to that one works perfectly to access the pool. I also appreciate you letting me know about the ants outside near the garage and in the pool area. In the future, I hope all guests will contact the manager when they are at the villa as he will take care of any problems when he knows about them. He would have immediately sent out the exterminator that we have on call, as this is FL and there are lots of bugs, especially in the summer. No matter what time of year, however, there are bugs. There are bugs that will get into the house, they always do. They are so small and can get in any small hole or crack. This is why the exterminator is always on call. Please, in the future, do not hesitate to contact management and let me know about any issue because we will aim to have it fixed ASAP, but we can't fix anything that isn't reported:)
