The townhouse was very clean and fully equipped with everything one could need. The location is perfect - lots of good restaurants close by and only 10 minutes to Disney.
The extras ( free long distance calling and Internet access ),made our month long stay so enjoyable as we were able to keep track of our family back in Canada. The facilities and the grounds at the Windsor Palms complex are first rate. We had such a good stay that we have booked already for next year. Thanks Andrew and Angela for sharing your great home
This was our 6th visit to the Orlando/Kissimmee area and this is the nicest property we have stayed at. The house is in a great location, a short drive away from the theme parks and close enough to sample the delights of International Drive.
The property is well equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday - we were travelling round the US for 3 weeks and the inclusion of a washer/drier certainly reduced the amount of luggage we needed to take.
This was our first visit to Windsor Palms and should we return to Orlando/Kissimmee then I would certainly go back to this resort and probably this property. Windsor Palms is a great complex, with a nice pool area and a cinema, fitness centre and a small childrens play area (although my teenagers were too old for this) The complex is gated and secure, I felt very comfortable letting my teenagers walk the couple of minutes to the pool area themselves for an evening swim after a hectic day out.
This property would appeal to all age groups and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. Overall, a great property in a great location.
A comfortable and well equipped property that is excellent for access to the parks. With 5 adults in the house there was plenty of space for us all to chill out.
Was nice to have a tea pot ! (other properties in Florida we have stopped out haven't even had a kettle.)
Pool area could do with a bit of tlc but didn't spoil our enjoyment of our stay
Would recommend this property to friends and family and would love to book up for our next visit
We were at This house at the end of June to start of July this year, the complex felt nice and secure with a 24 hour gaurd on the gate looking for ur pass as you entered through the closed gates, complex was nice and clean and form what we seen of the club house / pool it looked immaculate but we spent our times at the house splash pool and Disney and universal parks. The house it's self was nice and spacious and very well set out, I was there with my partner and two kids along with her mum and dad, they lived down stairs in the bed room and en-suite and we were upstairs using two rooms with further 2 en-suites. We felt this was a great value for money for the two weeks, has a small enclosed splash pool in out the back and is cleaned ever week. House is in a great location set just off one of the 192 with hundreds of restaurants, gift shops and attractions! And the 192 is just a short drive from Disney parks at just 3 miles away and leads on to the I4 which is the main road to anywhere you need to go! If your looking an affordable place to stay I would definitely reccomend this property and Angela was good to deal with we booked 10 months prior to arriving and was kept up to date with all our information and there was no problems Atall, we will definitely be returning in the future! Thanks
This was the first time I've used VRBO, and wasn't sure exactly what to expect. I was a little nervous because it fit right into my budget for the week, and there are not many pictures listed of the place itself. We arrived after the property management company was closed, but retrieving the keys and instructions was simple. The property itself is beautifully maintained, and was perfect for my family! With the 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, each room had its own bath, and I love having a full kitchen when travelling. Also, the little splash pool was so nice, we never felt the need to go up to the big clubhouse pool. My kids are still small, and in the future we might use the clubhouse pool, but it wasn't necessary for us this time. I definitely was pleasantly surprised by the screened in pool.
It took between 10 and 15 minutes to get to Disney, depending on traffic. There is a shuttle available, but the cost while we were there to take it was $13/person. I'd rather pay the $20 to park right at Disney for the day since there were 6 of us. One tip, if it's hot when you're going to Disney and you think you're going to want a spray fan, the grocery store closest to the property has the best deal on these spray fans. I think the grocery store was called the Marketplace. Here they were $7.99, Walmart had them for $10, and Disney sells them for $19.
Heads up...they do not supply you with extra garbage bags, or dishwasher soap, but want you to have the dishwasher running when you leave and the garbage all taken out. We just washed dishes by hand, which worked fine. An extra garbage bag or 2 would have gone a long way, but you may want to bring one or two from home, along with a couple of dishwasher tablets. There is a nice little sundry shop, which you can pay extra for things you need, or plenty of stores nearby that you can buy the things needed. However, when you aren't going to be spending more than a week, you don't need a whole box of them.
Lastly, Angela was great to work with! I only needed to contact her a couple of times, and she responded very quickly and was very helpful. The management company came by to fix a couple of things that I'd called about while we were out at Disney for the day once and left a note so we knew they were there and that they'd done what I'd asked. We will definitely stay here again!!
Loved the property. Well maintained and clean. Be advised, parking is limited to one car at the condo; additional cars must park at the end of the street. (not far)
This was one of the best decisions that we made on our trip to visit Disney World. Windsor Palms is a delightful community. I was traveling with my husband, five-year-old son, and my aging parents.
The layout of this home is great for families. The downstairs bedroom and walk-in shower were perfect for my parents, allowing them to enter at the ground level and to not have to climb stairs or have issues getting in and out of the shower.
The kitchen was equipped with all the things we needed. It came in handy as we were able to prepare all our meals there and not have to spend a lot of money on overpriced meals at any of the parks.
The bedrooms upstairs were great. The king bed was so comfortable. I wished my home mattress had me sleep as well. My son's room was perfect for him with two twin beds, and plenty of room to play. It was nice that he had his own bath as well.
The washer and dryer were great as it reduced what we had to pack for the week. The only issue we experiences is that the start mechanism on the dryer was simply sitting on rod that turned it on, but detached as soon as you touched it. I emailed the rental company before we left for the parks the day we discovered it, and it was fixed by the time we returned home. I couldn't believe how prompt they were with getting it fixed.
The pool directly on the property was great for a quick dip to cool down, and the clubhouse with larger pool and hot tub were a great way to rest and relax in our downtime from going to the parks.
Angela is great to work with. I highly recommend this property!
