Property description

Our goal is to make your vacation memories that last a lifetime. We have all the basics that you need and then we try to go above and beyond the average 'rental house.'

When you walk into our home, you will immediately know that we care. We have a welcome bag waiting personalized with you and your travel companions in mind and providing you with some of the basics. You will find a fully appointed kitchen with almost anything you need for cooking for your family (if you want to cook on vacation!).

The first floor has three bedrooms, two are ensuites with full bathrooms, and there is a half bathroom that leads to the lanai and private pool. The two ensuite rooms have king size beds, and the third bedroom has a queen. All three bedrooms have flat screen televisions.

The upstairs has three more bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is one large master bedroom with a king size bed and a crib. There are two themed rooms, one is a 'Cars' themed room and the other is 'Frozen' themed. The two themed rooms have full size twin beds. All three upstairs bedrooms have flat screen TVs.
Total beds for 12 adults plus one crib

You will enjoy your vacation fully relaxed as our home offers these added benefits:

*Private salt water pool & spa
*PREFERRED CABLE PACKAGE- 220+ channels including ALL Disney and Nickelodeon channels
* Free Upgraded high speed Internet / Wifi
* Complimentary BBQ Grill
* All flat screen TVs in each bedroom and living room (50'' inch )
* Game room with Pool Table; Ping-pong set, train table and games for all ages
* Wii and Games;
* Fully equipped kitchen with pots, dishes, silverware, stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, can-opener, toaster, slow cooker, blender, baking pans, corkscrew, etc.
* On-site washer, dryer, irons and board, vacuum
* Mom-friendly: Crib, 3 single strollers, 1 double stroller, deluxe pack n play with changing table and bassinet add-on, Baby Einstein Bouncer, EvenFlo exersaucer, booster seats, Highchair, toddler potty, baby monitors, white noise machines, baby gates, bedrails, children's utensils and dishes and children's al fresco dining set are provided. Toys are available for your use while you are in the home as well.

BBQ grill use is complimentary. Pool/Spa heating is optional at minimal cost.

The Windsor Palms Resort has the highest repeat renting rate with a reason: it is the best location to the Disney parks, shops, restaurants and the airport. Only 3 miles to the Disney main gate --- you can bike there if weather permits! Also the club house is very well equipped, designed to be user friendly, newly renovated and very well managed. There is a great Tiki Bar & Grill at the main community pool!

Want to cook your own meals like at home? Less than 10 minutes away is a Winn-Dixie, But just another 10 minutes and you are at WHOLE FOODS! The closest Target Super center, is less than 10 minutes drive from home. Don't want to cook? The Tiki Bar & Sundry shop at the Community center serves all the basics, but I recommend Giordano's take out/delivery!

Directions:

To get to Windsor Palms, follow Hwy 192 west from the Orlando International airport to Mile Marker 4. At this intersection, take a left turn, and follow Formosa Gardens Blvd for 1/2 mile to the intersection with Funie Steed. Cross and continue then the Windsor Palms Gate is on your right.

    This home is already child friendly, but look for continuous additions and improvements to make it a vacation haven for those with children.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are Western New York family, but our hearts keep taking us back to Disney. Your main contact is a Disney planning nut and I own the home with my husband and parents. I've spent my whole teen/adult life planning Disney trips for my family and for friends and clients, including our wedding and three Disney Performing Arts trips. My goal has always been to find the most efficient, most magical, most economical trip plans. I'm looking forward now to being able to help families do that constantly in the years to come!! I encourage you to let us help you plan your trip, beyond just booking our villa.

Why the Owner Chose Kissimmee, FL, USA:
We wanted a house just like the one we had stayed in when EVERYone came...Grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren. This set up is perfectly suited for just that type of trip. It's close to the attractions but allows for true relaxation and family socializing time that you just don't get in multiple hotel rooms. It's even close enough to Disney that if you want to have a nice meal and drinks at Epcot, a taxi ride is an affordable and convenient alternative to the Resort shuttle and everyone can enjoy some drinks at dinner.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our goal is to continue to make this the most child friendly home in the area...we have preschool aged twins and know how difficult it is to travel because you have to pack SO MUCH. We hope to provide most things that you would need, right in the villa, without extra rental charges. There is a 'CARS' super themed room for the boys (or the girl car lovers-that's my niece!) and a 'Frozen' themed room for all ages. The salt water filtration system means your skin and hair will be softer and your eyes won't sting in the water! There is a swim vest for toddlers, toddler potty, toys, pool safety alarms/fences, bed rails, baby gates, strollers, high chair, train table, full size crib, outdoor children's dining set, deluxe pack n play with changing table and bassinet add-on, exersaucer, Baby Einstein Bouncer, booster seats, shampoo and conditioner in every bath and Johnson & Johnson products for the little ones. We just added PREFERRED channel lineup, which includes over 220 channels, including ALL THE DISNEY AND NICKELODEON CHANNELS!! Plus, if you book with us for a full week, you can pick a princess dress (subject to availability) for your princess to be waiting on your arrival! We have several from which to choose!
