We equipped our home with you in mind. While we love to visit our home in the sun, as former vacation home renters we understand how important your vacation accommodation is to your overall holiday experience. Our goal is to provide a clean, modern, stylish home where you and your family can relax in comfort; with the comforts of home.

We furnished our home throughout so every piece of furniture inside our home is new and selected by us

We selected a gated and guarded resort community to provide extra assurance and peace of mind. But we also selected a community that offers extra facilities that you can enjoy at no cost as an alternative to hectic days in the Theme Parks:

- Clubhouse with staff on site - 2-3 minutes walk from our home

- Olympic size community swimming pool

- Toddler pool

- Whirlpool / spa

- Picnic / BBQ area

- Games room

- Pool / snooker

We also wanted to make sure that when you were ready for that much needed rest at the end of the day you could relax and refresh via the benefit of beds that were attractive and functional - hence the modern platform beds, coordinated designer bedding, and memory foam mattresses which we enjoy at home in NJ and consider essential to a good night's rest - preparing you for the next day of activity

We put much time and effort into personally selecting every paint color, piece of furniture, fittings and equipment and hope that you find everything you need

- DVDs

About Carol & Norm

We are Brits who relocated to the USA 20 years ago and became US citizens. We live and work in NJ and take every opportunity to visit our home in FL. In line with their marketing we do truly consider Disney to be the happiest place on earth. What's not to love about Mickey Mouse :-) But we also enjoy the other parks and many activities that Orlando offers

Carol & Norm purchased this villa in 2011

Why Carol & Norm chose Disney / Orlando

After years of renting vacation homes in the area we wanted to find a home that we could use for our family and friends, in addition to offering availability to visitors from around the world. We chose the Windsor Palms community as we liked the feel of the community, in addition to providing that extra security provided by a gated and guarded entry.

We chose this home as we feel it is the ideal size for family gatherings, and provides enough outdoor space to allow people to relax and enjoy the FL sunshine, while also enjoying the large private pool after a long day at the parks

We also liked the fact that our home is on two levels and provides good sized bedrooms on both levels

What makes this villa unique

The location is brilliant for anyone wanting to focus on visiting Disney, Downtown Disney, Sea World, Universal. It is located with easy access to the major highways

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to let you know how impressed we were with your home. Perfect inside and out, and a great location. It made our vacation! We'll find you again next year, and recommend it to anyone we know traveling to Orlando. Thank you!

Modern vacation home for relaxed and comfortable family fun; South facing pool
average rating of 5.0 based on 27 reviews

Fantastic Home! Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation is extremely important to us as we all live in different parts of the country. Carol and Norm understand that importance. They have designed their home with family in mind. The layout itself is perfect for all. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were as comfortable as any we have ever slept on. Our grandchildren especially enjoyed the Rec Room, upstairs bedroom thoughtfully equipped with toys and books and a nice selection of family DVD'S located downstairs. The kitchen and pantry were surprisingly well equipped with everything that was needed for our stay. The house pool was most enjoyable with plenty of room for not only swimming but relaxing in the sun. We took advantage of the community pool and caught a movie in the theater. The location of Carol and Norm's home is ideal for Disney goers as it only took us 7-10min. to reach the entrance. We have rented homes in the nearby area before but none have been as welcoming and enjoyable. If you are exploring home rentals for your next vacation look no further. This is the one!

5 Star Holiday Villa !

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here and from the moment we booked knew we had made the right decision ! The contact between ourselves and Carol and Norm was brilliant, any question ( and I had a few!) was replied to quickly and so informative!

Just what you need when planning a trip to Orlando! The trips into Disney were easy and you can get to all the other attractions without too much trouble other than the traffic!

The villa itself was so well equipped with anything you think you may need and so spacious we never felt on top of each other.

Each bedroom was large and all tastefully decorated as was the rest of the villa.

Great pool area and plenty seating outside, all of us enjoyed our stay so much and should we ever return to Orlando this is where we will be booking, so research over! A joy!

Thankyou Carol and Norm you've helped create special memories with your amazing house!

Perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

The house and the grounds were perfect. The pool had many lounge chairs and 2 large tables to eat at. Inside the house everything was perfect. All was clean and new and beautifully done. There was extra towels and toilet paper and truly anything that was needed

And even though when we first came the air conditioning was not working within an hour Kiernan came after we called the owners and fixed it immediately.

We would rent this property again

Owner's Response: We really appreciate you taking the time to review our home and especially appreciative that you enjoyed it so much for your family stay. We are always delighted when people appreciate the time and care we put into maintaining our home, and cleanliness in a home is the top priority for us The initial glitch with the AC was irritating as the landscaping company had decided to blow mulch into the exterior AC vent but as you say it was a simple fix and our local management company had it operational very quickly We do hope to hear from you again if you are ever back in the area and looking for a great place to stay Best wishes Carol & Norm
