Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bath Vacation Home with 2736 square feet of space!

This vacation home is the perfect 'jumping off' point to enjoy all the activities that Central Florida has to offer, and provides a relaxing and magical place to relax after doing them. To begin with, this gorgeous home is less than two and a half miles from Disney's doorstep, located in luxury, gated resort of Windsor Hills. It is also 20 minutes from Universal Studios, if your kids want to see Hogwarts. If you all crave a bit more time with nature, Cocoa Beach is roughly an hour's drive away. You can even make a day trip to Crystal Rivers Florida and swim with the manatees!

What makes this house itself so special is the five bedrooms and five bathrooms arrangement, which is ideal for larger or multi-generational families. Having a bathroom for each bedroom means limited fighting for bathroom time! The 2-story arrangement is ideal for two families or one family plus grandparents. That means the kids can either be on the same floor as you or the grandparents...you choose. ;) The home accommodates up to 10 guests in spacious comfort, while being licensed for 12 guests.

One unique aspect of this home is the fact that there is a southwest facing pool and hot tub, which means you will get sun on the pool year round! The pool also has a removable safety fence, for the comfort and security of those with younger children.

In addition to all of the above, the house also comes with high speed Internet, 6 TV's, a PlayStation, a Game Room and a Laundry area with a full sized washer and dryer.

And let's not forget the Windsor Hills Resort itself, which can only be called impressive. It is a gated community with a water park pool with fountains, water slides and spa, a zero-entry community pool for the little ones, tennis courts, basketball courts, a volleyball court, ping pong tables, a themed outdoor playground, a game room, a movie theatre, a workout room, and a sundry shop which sells snack food and other convenience items.including all those things you forgot. If they don't have it at the sundry shop, there is a grocery store (and other shops) less than 5 minutes drive away.

This vacation home has it all: location, space, security and enough options for entertainment to tire out even the highest adrenaline kids!

Lexy purchased this villa in 2013

Why Lexy chose Kissimmee

We chose this property after visiting and staying at quite a few homes in the Orlando area. It had what OUR family wanted...proximity to Disney, Universal and a beach, a luxury resort community, and a vacation home with enough space but that felt warm and 'homey'.

What makes this villa unique

You have to love the Southwest facing pool! This is a bit more unique and means that you can enjoy the pool even in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family spent the most wonderful time here. We were a big group and we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The house was very comfortable, well equiped, easy check in and check out process, great location, and the list goes on. The host, Lexy, is the best. Great communication! You won't regret it.

A perfect home for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home played a big part of a perfect vacation. There were 10 people in total in our party: 4 adults and 6 children. The house was spacious, spotless, welcoming and had everything we needed. The terrace and the pool at the back of the house were an added bonus : the kids (and Dad’s!) particularly enjoyed it in the afternoons and evenings. It also featured a small bubble jacuzzi that can feed warm water into the main pool.

The communal facilities, just a 2 minutes walk from the house, were also exceptional: we enjoyed the entertainment resort pool featuring a slide, a large pool area that everyone can enjoy and a warm bathtub at the back. We also took advantage of the resort's private movie theatre which can be booked to watch a movie and, since there is also a small convenience just outside, you can fill up on snacks and drinks before the movie ;-) They have a large selection of DVDs and we booked it for 2 evenings to watch Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2.

Last but not least, in terms of location, this house is perfectly located to reach all the Disney parks on a short drive (Magic Kingdom is only 15 minutes away) and not far from Universal Studios either. We definitely recommend it and we will definitely be staying in that house again in the future!!

Nice home, management company needs to step up and care for the property as the owner would want.

  • 3 of 5

Loved the floor plan and the heated pool. The beds were comfortable and overall we enjoyed our stay here. The negatives of the property were the carpet throughout the downstairs is very worn and very dirty, the recliner is broken, the universal remote for the main tv was never found(we changed channels old school by pushing buttons on the tv), one of the TV's upstairs we never could get to work. Our bedroom TV remote was found under our bed. The owner was extremely wonderful to work with and was always helpful when communicating with her. I think the management company should be monitoring her property better and fixing the problems as they arise. I'm sure they knew the carpet needed cleaning, the recliner was broken, and remotes were missing! We discovered these things in the first ten minutes upon arrival. In saying this, other than the carpets the house was clean, can't fault the cleaning crew. The house needs a bit of TLC but it's still a good place to stay and we'd rent it again.

Owner's Response: Hi Ginger, As a result of this feedback, and a bit of our own experience, we have changed management companies. We have just changed all the carpets throughout the house, and have refurbished the inventory!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

For a family Disney vacation, strong together was very important in deciding on a place to stay, as well as keeping the cost reasonable. We were so glad we came across this house as it had everything and more we wanted. As a family of 9, only 1 child, this house provided the right amount of personal space and as much "togetherness" we wanted. The house was clean and decorated very nice. The beds were comfortable, but the the pillows could've been a little better (or just bring your own). I wish we could've stayed longer to enjoy the game room and the pool/hot tub more. We will be staying here again for our future Disney trips.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dedra! I am so glad that you enjoyed your time at the house. We have noted your comments on the pillows and will check them out when we visit this week. We look forward to having you as a return guest!! All the best Lexy

Overall experience was good!

  • 4 of 5

The house is a bit dated, beds were comfortable and we had enough linens, towels etc. The carpet could really use a good cleaning. We barely had enough dish soap and dishwasher detergent to get through our 9 days, I think it is stocked for those who only stay a week. The pool was great and the kids really did enjoy it. I thought there would be some pantry items, at least salt and pepper, there was nothing! Now we know for the next time! Check in into the community on Saturday was a nightmare, they really need a better system. The staff were really nice though! We did have a great vacation and we would probably stay there again!

Location was great!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There was plenty of room for our family. We enjoyed that all five showers could be used at once which helped every one get ready for bed quickly after a long day at the parks. The longest drive was 18 minutes to one of the Disney parks. We would definitely stay here again!

Spacious house, immaculate and convenient to all Disney parks.

  • 4 of 5

This house was wonderful for our Disney vacation. We traveled with 2 families and a senior citizen. The 5 kids all happily occupied the upstairs bedrooms which were well situated. The kids all loved having their own bathrooms attached to their rooms. My mother had the privacy of her own bed/bathroom downstairs away from any noise while my sister and I each had a master suite overlooking the pool. This spacious house was immaculate and very convenient to all Disney parks. The kids used the community pool, parks, and clubhouse daily.
