About Joni Neiman

My husband is a life-long resident of Minnesota and I've lived here most of my life. While we enjoy the changing seasons, winters can be brutal. We usually try to get away for a week or two in January. Growing up, our three children loved all that the Orlando area had to offer so we traveled here often. When we retire in a few years, we plan on making Orlando our home.

Joni Neiman purchased this house in 2015

Why Joni Neiman chose Kissimmee

Since staying at Windsor Hills in one of the beautiful pool homes with our extended family of 15, I have dreamed of owning and renting out a vacation villa here. That was seven years ago. During that time I have studied the area, researched homes and visited with realtors. We finally realized the dream in the fall of 2015 when we were able to purchase this villa. We are delighted to offer this lovely pool home to other guests and families.

We have two daughters and a son who have blessed us with several grandchildren. And this grandma is a theme park lover. So what better place than as close as possible to all the Magic?

Great Location for Disney - Few Issues

  • 4 of 5

Our trip was a gift to family members from the north who rarely see sun/warmth during the winter months... Unfortunately, there was miscommunication with the prior renters for the pool heater and we did not experience a warm/hot pool or spa during our trip (which was one of the two reasons we chose this rental property). Attempts were made to fix the issue but were unsuccessful due to communicative effectiveness and weather- we were unhappy with the customer service provided by the property management company employees - However, Joni was very nice! Furthermore, it would be smart for the TV's to be marked with what input the cable is on (since all of them are different), the floors were sticky on arrival, and the license for the rental property was expired when we were there. Overall, we enjoyed our stay - just picky for the sake of the review.

Owner's Response: I know how very disappointing it is to arrive in sunny Florida only to find it's cold. It happened to us on our first trip to Windsor Hills. Unfortunately, this guest's stay was during a record setting cold snap all throughout the South. Pool heaters that are used in Windsor Hills are called Heat Pump Pool heaters. It works by taking the warmer outdoor air and pumping it through the unit to warm the pool. When the overnight temperature goes below 50 degrees, it's extremely hard, if not impossible to keep the pool warm, because there's no warm air to be had. During this stay, Orlando saw its fourth coldest temperature ever, with an average daily temperature of 47.3 degrees. Overnight it was dropping below 35 degrees. Even though the heater was set to run 24 hours a day, it will shut itself off when it goes below 35 degrees to prevent it was damage to the unit. Over the weekend of this cold snap, the management company made three trips to house to try and increase the temperature. But it was just too cold. If the outdoor temp would have been warm enough, it only takes 24 hours to heat the pool. I'm sorry that you felt that their customer service was not adequate. As for the other items mentioned, good suggestion about the TV's, we'll get them labeled. The rental license is current. But the updated license was not on display - again, that will be correct. Any of the other items mentioned, will be corrected. We are always striving to give our guests an above normal experience in both the quality of the home and the service we provide. Our goal is 5 star and when our guests are disappointed, we take it to heart and work hard to correct any problems. Thank you for your review and bringing the problems to our attention. In the end, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay overall, minus the pool. Joni

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well carried for. Cute bath amenities and nice upgrades they've done. I found The Haven at Windsor Hills online and booked with the owner, Joni. I saved several hundred dollars in fees. She's great to work with. I can't wait to go back to The Haven.
