About the property

6 Bedroom 3.5 bath home with private salt water pool/spa catering to families

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 princess room just got all new furniture and mattresses! 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 self-service 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.

* Mom-friendly: Crib, 2 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!


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.

About Jessica Hapeman

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.

Jessica Hapeman purchased this house in 2013

Why Jessica Hapeman chose Kissimmee

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 or Uber ride is an affordable and convenient alternative to the Resort shuttle and everyone can enjoy some drinks at dinner.

What makes this house unique

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 toddler potty, toys, pool safety alarms/fences, bed rails, baby gates, single and double strollers, white noise machines, 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 baby specific products for the little ones. We 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 find a princess dress (subject to availability) for your princess waiting on your arrival!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was perfect for our family. It was especially great for our infants and toddlers as they graciously provided cribs, toys, high chairs and other useful child-related things. Ideal location for a trip to Disney.

We are planning to bring more and more child amenities to the home and other amenities to assist YOU the renter in having to bring as few items in your suitcases as possible. We just recently bought a deluxe pack n play with changer and bassinet, along with an einstein bouncer. You will always have to pack your child's favorite stuffed animal or blanket, but at least we can provide you with the bulk of the bigger stuff, we hope, to make your trip more comfortable and enjoyable. Traveling with kids is without a doubt rewarding, but also equally exhausting and we hope to make that as simple as possible.


Enjoy the private salt water pool & spa at the end of a fun day.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 22, 2017

Windsor Palms Villa was truly a breath of fresh air for the Bear and his friends as they explored attractions in and around Orlando, Florida. This lovely villa was spacious and well-furnished with everything we needed. My son loved the theme rooms, especially the “Cars” themed room and had fun playing with the video games. The entire family was pleasantly thrilled with the welcome gifts, which were thoughtfully provided by Jessica, the home owner. This home is conveniently located near the major attractions in Orlando and especially close to Disney, Universal and Sea World. All in all the property was great and Jessica was very friendly and easily reachable - thank you Jessica! It was a great trip and this bear family highly recommends staying at this beautiful property.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed. Clean and well stocked. We cooked breakfasts and some dinners. The property is close to Target for last minute "I forgot my trunks" and Publix for groceries. Kids had a blast in the pool after a day at the Disney adventures. We had 11 in our group and we were all comfortable with the space. We would definitely stay here again.

Our Favorite Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at this home, and we absolutely love it ! This truly is a home away from home. The owner, Jess, is so attentive. Having all of the gear for our littles already available in the house is so nice and frees up a lot of room in the van. Our family has plenty of 7 has PLENTY of room, and there's still space for my father-in-law to come up from southern Florida and spend a few days. When we think of Florida, we think of this home!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better house for a family vacation to Disney. It was wonderful to have so much space to spread out and we enjoyed the pool for days we did not go to the parks or in the afternoons. Additionally, we often were at Disney before our friends who were staying on property even when we both left at the same time! Super easy drive! Jessica was also wonderful and left a super thoughtful care package for us with initial cleaning supplies and lovely dresses that made my girls Disney adventure start off with a magical touch. The couple minor challenges (pool heat not turned on initially, lack of a back up crib sheet) were quickly addressed by Jessica, who was extremely responsive. We also enjoyed the movie theatre on property, which felt like our own private one, as we could request the movies we wanted. I would absolutely stay here again!
