About the property

Check out our new photos! When we purchased our home we invested $100,000 in a top-to-bottom refurbishing project.

FREE WI-FI HIGH SPEED INTERNET, and X-Box 360 with Kinnect System.

We also have a full-size arcade game, featuring 60 classic games from the 80's including:

• Pacman

• Ms. Pacman

• Frogger

• Donkey Kong

• Space Invaders

• Galaga

• Centipede

• Dig Dug

• Mr. Do

• Burger Time

• Many, Many More!

Welcome to our luxury villa at Windsor Hills, featuring a true south-facing private pool and hot-tub, with no rear neighbors. We are one of the closest homes to the amazing Windsor Hills clubhouse - about a 2 minute stroll away.

The most important feature of our family retreat is that we offer one of the few south-facing pool homes in Windsor Hills that also has no rear neighbors. Spend a moment viewing the Windsor Hills development on Google Maps. Most of the south-facing homes back right up to another property. Most of the other homes with no rear neighbors face north, east, or west – limiting the amount of sun the pool area will receive. If you select a south-facing home that has rear neighbors, the neighbors pool will be approximately 10 feet from your pool – not my idea of relaxing! Take a look at the view from our pool area and you’ll see the difference.

The second most important feature is our proximity to the world class Windsor Hills club house, resort water slide, movie theater, sundry shop, fitness center, and other amenities. We are right down the street from the club house, approximately a 2 minute walk. Many of the homes in Windsor Hills are located a good 10-15 minute walk away from the club house. If you have children, and you are a 15 minute walk away, you almost have to drive there to utilize the amenities of this lovely resort. Our proximity to the clubhouse and water slide makes our home perfect for all ages. We are also right across the street from the amazing children’s 'castle' playground!

Our home offers five bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom. Unlike some homes, we offer three bedrooms on the first floor, making our home the perfect choice for those travelers who prefer first floor living.

Windsor Hills is the premier luxury vacation resort near Disney, boasting the best amenities in the area.

Windsor Hills is less than 3 miles away from Disney's main gates.

Each bedroom in our home has a brand new flat panel TV, complete with its own DVD system, and its own private bathroom.

We offer a great cable TV package, including HD programming, HBO and Showtime pay channels FREE of charge, as well as UK Soccer programming on FOX Soccer.

We also offer FREE Long-Distance calling to the entire US and many other countries, including FREE calls to land lines in the UK and Canada.

The family room includes BRAND NEW (2016) leather furniture, as well as a 65' HD TV and a Sony DVD Player for all to enjoy. We also offer a library of 20 DVDs for your enjoyment. If you'd like, there is a DVD rental kiosk at the Windsor Hills clubhouse, just a 2 minute stroll down the street.

Your children will love the "Star Wars" room and the "Minion's Room". We offer an X-box 360 in our games room. We also offer a library of many video games, including:

• NHL'11

• Madden 12

• Star Wars The Force Unleashed

• Family Game Night 3

• UFC Trainer

• Body and Brain Connection

• Bully Scholarship Edition

• Call of Duty Black OPS

• L.A. Noire

• Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009

• Ace Cp,nat 6: Fire of Liberation

• Motionsports Play For Real

• Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 20

• Dance Central

• Batman

• Grand Theft Auto IV

• Masters / Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12

• Wii Sports

• Just Dance 3

• MLB Baseball

• NBA 2K7

Each bedroom offers a flat-panel HD TV complete with its own DVD player.

Both the 'Star Wars' room and the 'Minion's' room feature two twin beds each, as well as a trundle bed in each, for a total of three sleeping areas in each twin room.

We have two master suites, one on each level of the home, featuring brand-new furniture, King beds, ultra-plush pillow-top mattresses from Sealy, and private en-suite bathrooms.

Our Queen suite, also on the first floor, is in a private corner of the home, with an ultra-plush pillow-top mattress from Sealy, and a private bathroom - perfect for the Grandparents.

Our home has a dishwasher, as well as TWO washing machines and dryers for your convenience.

ONE OF THE BEST FEATURES is that our home has two separate air conditioning units, and two separate hot water heaters, one for each floor. Our bedrooms also feature ceiling fans.

Our home backs to open space, providing additional privacy, while you and your family relax and enjoy the pool and spa/hot-tub.

This is a non-smoking home, stocked with all linens, utensils, etc. We even offer a 'starter pack' of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc.

For those families traveling with young children, we offer a brand new double-stroller, high-chair, pack-n-play, and bedrails.

We hope you enjoy your stay!

About Bill and Donna Burns

Donna and I have been married for 24 years, and we have been blessed with 5 children, the youngest being just 12 years old, so we have many years left to enjoy the magic of Disney!

We own three homes in Windsor Hills - right next door to each other - and we really enjoy spending time in this luxurious resort with our extended family.

We fell in love with Windsor Hills since we are only 2 miles away from Disney, and very close to Universal Studios too. We also take time to travel to either coast to swim in the ocean as a day trip (just 1-2 hours away). We just love our location.

Equally enjoyable is being able to share our three homes with travelers from all over the world. Our guests arrive as tenants, but leave as friends!

Bill and Donna Burns purchased this villa in 2016

Why Bill and Donna Burns chose Kissimmee

We rented many homes in Windsor Hills before purchasing our home. Our home backs up to the green conservation area, where no new homes can be built. This means when we are relaxing in our private pool, there are no other families behind us looking into our pool area. If you look at photos of other homes, you will see how close together the homes are - all back-to-back. In addition, since our home is on the end of our "row", the neighbors to the side are also a greater distance away. In our opinion our home is the most private in all of Windsor Hills.

What makes this villa unique

Spend a moment viewing the Windsor Hills development on Google Maps. Most of the homes face north, east, or west – limiting the amount of sun the pool area will receive. When you view Google Maps, you'll see many of those pool areas covered in shade - even during the middle of the day. With our south-facing pool, the sun is always on our pool area.

Perfect accommodation for our big group!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the accommodations at the Burns' home. The space worked perfectly for our party of six adults and three kids. I felt that we were very well prepared and informed by the owners before we arrived on what to expect. Even though we didn't have time to check out the community amenities, we were a very short walking distance from them.

The game room was a plus for the kids, they loved playing the arcade machine and the pool table was enjoyed by the adults. The washers and dryers definitely came in handy as well. I would have to say the pool was the best. Every day after our visit to the parks, we would all relax in the pool and hot tub. I would also like to add that the pool temperature was PERFECT!

We had a bit of an issue with the thermostat upstairs, but Bill Burns was on it!!! He was so attentive to the issue and had someone out to the home to fix it in no time.

Thank you Donna and Bill for your hospitality. It made our vacation so much more enjoyable to stay at your home. The next time we visit with a large group, we'll be looking you up for sure!

Owner's Response: Dear Alisia, Thank you for your kind words and your Five Star review. We really appreciate it! We are so happy you found our pool temperature to be PERFECT! I liked that comment so much I wanted to use the same CAPS that you used! Many families assume that they won't need the pool and spa heating package in the summer months, but that's not necessarily the case. Even though our south-facing pool gets the most sun all day, the pool heater really makes it warm and comfortable night or day for our guests. We really enjoy relaxing in the spa in the evening once the sun goes down, and our heater can get it up to 104 degrees. Thank you for referencing our customer service related to the thermostat issue. A previous guest had accidentally bent the housing thermostat knob, so it wouldn't turn properly. After having a repairman out who couldn't get it fixed, we got the temperature set to a comfortable level manually, and then we had a new thermostat shipped and installed right away. It's great that the children enjoyed the arcade game in the game room. It's hard to get some kids away from the XBox - so we're always happy to hear when families spend some time with Frogger, Galaga, or Donkey Kong. Thank you for being such a great family to work with, and we hope you can vist again soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

The perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

I wouldn't change a thing. If you are looking for a wonderful house close to the parks - look no further. We were at the Disney parks within 15 minutes of leaving the house. A nice, new Walmart was just down the street (recommendation - place a pick up order so you don't even need to go into the busy store!) The beds are cozy and kitchen well appointed. But the pool and hot tub were our favorite. A great way to unwind after being in the parks all day. The perfect family rental.

Owner's Response: Dear Heather & Family, Thank you for your Five Star review! We are especially happy that you loved our beds/mattresses. We added all new mattresses to our home as part of our remodeling project. It's great to hear that they are appreciated! Thank you for mentioning that the pool and hot tub were your favorite features of our home. It is great not having any rear-neighbors overlooking our pool area, and the south-facing pool area will get the most sun all day. We hope you and your lovely family can visit again soon!

Great owners! Clean, nice home, near everything!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Donna were great from the booking, recommendations, to the flowers delivered to us pool side! If you are looking for a home with a pool, that will accommodate your family (or 2), and is close to the Orlando/Kissimmee attractions, do not hesitate to book with them!

Excellent Spring Break Home

  • 5 of 5

The Windsor Hills home was excellent for our 7 spring breakers aged 2 to 90. The pool was clean, warm and private. Very convenient location close to the playground and the clubhouse / waterpark, and shopping was a short bicycle ride away. Very convenient to I-4 and the theme parks too. The house was very comfortable and nicely decorated. Gated community and the security team was very courteous and helpful. My wife said we would keep track of the property and come back again sometime.

Great Disney Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Burns were great hosts. Along with our adult children and 4 grandchildren we had a fabulous stay. The house and south facing pool were great. The kids loved the theme/based bedrooms and the walk-in pool at the club house. The playground near the house was a big hit with the little ones too. We were up early and 15 mins to Disney--close stores for groceries--great location and welcomed rest after busy day in the park! This was our first experience with VRBO and hopefully not the last! Will keep on our list, Thanks Mary R.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary and Jim, Thank you for taking the time to leave your Five Star review. That was very kind of you. We're so happy everyone had a great time. It was great getting a chance to meet you and your family during your stay. Thank you for mentioning how close we are to the playground for the younger children. It's great being able to walk right across the street to the playground, and/or push a stroller, without having to get in a car. Thank you for being such a great family to work with, and we hope we can welcome you back soon! Bill and Donna Burns & Family

Ask Owner a Question

Additional pricing information

DAMAGE INSURANCE: The "Damage Insurance" Fee of $59 you see referenced in our online quote is our Damage Waiver Payment. We offer that to guests instead of a $500 refundable security deposit. Because this fee is included in our rate, you do not have to select the Damage Waiver Insurance offered through VRBO at checkout. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We actually have two cancellation policies: The "normal" policy and the "best efforts" policy. The normal policy is that each payment is non-refundable once it is made. If someone cancels after their deposit was made, but before their final payment was made, all they would forfeit is the deposit payment. While this is the "official" policy, we have five children ourselves, and we know full well how plans can change with kids. We are happy to report that we have never had to hold anyone to the "official" policy. The reason being is that our goal is to make guests happy in the hope that they will return to our home year-after-year, and not to profit at their misfortune. This is why we also have a "best efforts" policy as follows: In the few instances where a guest has needed to cancel, or the guest had to adjust their number of nights, if we are able to re-rent those particular nights at the same rate, then we are able to apply all or the majority of their payments to a future stay. If we are unable to re-rent those nights, then the payment would be lost. In the few instances this has happened we work closely with the families to try to find a solution that will work, and with the exception of cancellations that are very close to the travel dates, we usually have some level of success getting the nights re-rented.

GUEST REGISTRATION FORM: Once your reservation is confirmed, we will forward to you our VRBO/Homeaway Guest Registration Form where you can provide your guest list for the Windsor Hills security gate.
