About Eric Knesel

I have a wife and 2 kids, all of who love th Orlando area. I have worked with Marriott for 20years, and have renovated the Condominium using my experience working for Marriott to ensure that my guests will have the best offerings available during their stay.

Eric Knesel purchased this condo in 2012

Why Eric Knesel chose Kissimmee

I chose this property as this is the preferred destination of my family when we vacation. I found that it was enjoyable to have the space to spread out rather then be in a hotel room for a week or perhaps more at a time. It also allows you to come and go easily from the parks at any time and be only minutes away

What makes this condo unique

Location! Located only 1.5 miles form Walt Disney World, it allow easy access in and out. We can arrive at the parks in the morning, leave for lunch if we choose so and return in the afternoon, wasting no more than 5 - 10 minutes each way.

Looks as pictured and described

  • 4 of 5

About 15-20 mins door to door for the Disney parks and 30 mins to Universal. Useful guide to the local area provided by the gatehouse on registration.

Found the owner very helpful.

(One tip do not put the dish washer on its hottest cycle as it tends to bake food on cutlery & crockery rather than clean it)

Would stay again & recommend it.

Not Clean-Would Not Stay Again

  • 2 of 5

My family and I checked into this property on 5/21/17. We checked out the pool, arcade, and theater. They were all mediocre. Nothing to rant about. The condo itself seemed nice. Once I went to sit down, I noticed the couch was dirty, there was hair (from previous visitors) on the rugs, there was also dust and trash swept in between the sectional. We looked further and all the tvs and electronics were also dusty. I immediately emailed the owner. Then we woke up the next day itching. We examined the sheets. One set had some blood on it. The owner emailed me back the second day and had people come in and "clean" while we were gone. We had already taken it upon ourselves to do some cleaning because obviously we weren't comfortable staying in a property that clearly had not been thoroughly cleaned from the previous visitors. We even had to go to the store and purchase laundry supplies to wash the linens on all 4 beds. This was not a nice start to our vacation. I emailed the owner again after check out to let him know how dissatisfied I was. He never responded back. I guess he figured out Stay was complete and he had the money so he just didn't care about my satisfaction. I will never stay at this property again. On the off season, the price is pretty good. However, if I had known I was going to come in and be living in someone else's filth for 4 days, I would have just paid more to stay at a nicer, CLEANER place. I thought from previous reviews that this was a nice place to stay. Perhaps the owner uses a different property management company than he used back when the previous reviews were made. It looks nice on the surface but it was really dirty. Trust me, look elsewhere.

Very decent for the money

  • 4 of 5

I was very impressed with the place. I would definitely stay there again. One sink was plugged up when we got there and a rug in one of the rooms was turned up. The rug could be a hazard and people could trip over it. Otherwise my family and I loved staying there. We were out a lot, but it was nice to retreat to and watch TV at the end of the day. We were there for a tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports (easy to get to). We then had no problems enjoying several other theme parks to make a great vacation. Everything was just as they said it was on the description (property was beautiful). Like I said, I would stay there again.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at this amazing property. I love the layout of the condo - very spacious and open. The decor was tasteful and modern, furnishings top notch. The beds were super comfy. The kids loved the bunk beds. Anything and everything we needed were here, and Windsor Hills is just a wonderful community. I loved how close the condo was to I-4/ Disney/ Celebration. It truly felt like a home away from home and we didn't want to leave after our 8 day stay! Thank you Mr. Knesel for allowing us to stay at your property and we hope to do so again in the future!

Enjoyable Orlando area vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (15 & 12 y.o. boys) enjoyed our stay at Windsor Hills. Setting up the reservation, instructions on how to enter/checkout the community/condo were a breeze. The condo is very nice, extremely quiet, and suited our needs. The boys enjoyed the xbox360, I enjoyed the screened in porch. We did a few days at Universal and a few days lounging at the Windsor Hills excellent pool area.

Minor gripes were needing to buy salt and pepper (which might be normal for renting any condo like this) along with our regular grocery needs for the week, and needing to restock the toilet paper. Otherwise it was perfect. After reviewing many of the condos, different amenities of other "communities" in the area, we chose this one, it was an excellent choice and when we return to the Orlando area I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Eric was a great host and always answered questions quickly through the whole renting process. Thanks Eric!

Owner's Response: Jay, Thank you for taking time to review your stay at my vacation home. I am happy to hear that you and your family had an exceptional time. I do apologize about not having Salt & Pepper, however Florida State Regulations stat that we are not allowed to stock those items. I will also discuss further with my property manager about ensuring other items are stocked properly for my guests goring forward. Jay, thank you again for your business, and I look forward to working with you again on your next vacation to the Orlando Area.
