Overview

About the property

2 Bed 2 Bath, Excellent location and terrific value! Quick response from owner!

***NOW WITH BEAUTIFUL GRANITE COUNTERTOPS in the kitchen and bathroom! We are not increasing our cost to rent, just our VALUE!!*** Location, location, location!! and very reasonable prices! Great value, this is a super bright and airy, fully updated, top floor, two bedroom, two bathroom, central air conditioned condominium (3rd floor, no elevator, with no worries about noise from above!). This condominium is conveniently located in the gated resort community of Windsor Palms – just 2.5 Miles west of Disney, with lots of favorite restaurants and amenities nearby. YES! our unit has high speed internet and offers FREE WIFI ACCESS IN THE UNIT and FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS TO CANADA AND ACROSS THE CONTINENTAL USA! This home features 1 king bed, 2 twin beds and 1 queen sleeper sofa and can accommodate up to 6 people comfortably. The unit is tastefully furnished (including a La-Z-Boy sleeper sofa set) and is decorated for your enjoyment with a tropical Floridian feel and features high-end carpeting in both of the bedrooms. The owners of this unit strive to have all the comforts of home in mind so that you can enjoy your holiday to the fullest.

The dining room seats 6 and is a great spot for enjoying family meals prepared in the fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to make meals - or skip cooking and drive 5 mins to a number of great restaurants nearby! The living room as well as both bedrooms, have high quality flat screen TVs. For your convenience, behind the closet doors in the front hallway, is a full size washer and dryer set. There is also a screened in balcony with a bistro table and chairs and it is a lovely place to sit out and enjoy a morning coffee or glass of wine later in the day. The balcony is private as it faces the trees, yet gets plenty of sunshine in the morning – ONE OF THE NICEST FACING BALCONIES IN THE COMPLEX - does not face the parking lot!! The unit has lots of towels, linens as well as various other items for you to use during your stay such as a cooler, beach chairs, pool floats, etc.

Windsor Palms offers resort style vacationing at its best. The clubhouse offers a game room, a movie theatre with 3D movies, complete fitness center as well as a sundry shop and Tiki bar beside the beautiful pool. For further enjoyment guests can stay active throughout the recreation area, which includes a large community pool (NO PAYING EXTRA PER NIGHT FOR POOL HEAT WHEN YOU RENT A CONDO!) and spa (hot tub), nice children's splash pad, tennis and basketball courts, sand volleyball and a children's playground. There is also a charcoal BBQ area with picnic tables next to the pool, for guests to enjoy an outdoor meal.

So many great things to do nearby, of course DISNEY WORLD and lots of other various theme parks (Sea World, Universal, Legoland etc.) but also golfing, outlet shopping, great restaurants as well as being a reasonable distance from either coast for days on the beach, Kissimmee/Orlando is a great place to be!

No smoking and No pets permitted. We have a secure keyless code entry system which means no sending any keys back and forth. Very convenient, and no worries about losing the keys and incurring lost key charges! We accept credit card payments through HomeAway Payments directly through VRBO, it could not be easier! The amount you are quoted is the amount you pay in US dollars, NO hidden fees and we will NEVER ask you to wire money. We have a 4 night minimum on all stays, however, if the dates you require nestles between two existing reservations, we will consider allowing a short stay, send us a message, and we can discuss!

About Shawna MacNamara

Most of our year is spent at home in Canada, but we love to travel, and much of our travel has brought us to the United States. We love escaping from the cold winters to warm and sunny Florida. A few years ago, while on a vacation in Florida, which was geared towards our twin daughters (can you say Disney!?), we had the most wonderful time and renting a condo contributed to our terrific holiday. In fact, It was one of the best holidays we had ever had! No cramped hotel room and we saved a bundle on food by being able to prepare some of our own meals. We decided that we wanted to purchase our own condo and have a home away from home, and Florida was a great place to do that with Disney World and other theme parks nearby; so much to do, for the entire family. Day trips to either coast are also very manageable for some time on the beach - you just cannot be bored here. Even my husband has come to love the shopping outlets! All of these wonderful activities make this a fun place for our entire family!

We know what it is like trying to plan a family holiday, so many things to organize. We will endeavor to respond to you quickly, we check our messages regularly, and update our calendar often!

Why Shawna MacNamara chose Kissimmee

We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it. The first thing you see when you approach the community is a gate with a security guard on duty, 24 hours a day, and then you will pass the clubhouse area. Just a little further and you will reach our condo. The condo itself is on the 3rd level and there is no elevator - but being on the 3rd floor is worth the small climb, as once you are in the unit it is bright, airy and no worries about noise from above! The balcony is lovely with a view of greenery - not the parking lot! We loved all the amenities that Windsor Palms has to offer and knew that our family would enjoy this property for years to come. Even on days where we do not leave the property, we enjoy a day of on-site fun around the pool and clubhouse area (my kids love going to the small movie theater!). Restaurants are plentiful around the corner on Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy, for nights when we want to eat out. To top it off, this location is so close to Disney, and we love being neighbors with Mickey Mouse!

What makes this condo unique

This place has so many great features, an on site movie theatre, fitness facilities, games room, volleyball, tennis, basketball, children's playground, fantastic swimming pool (now with a great tiki bar beside the pool!) sundry shop in case of forgotten items, all in a wonderful gated community in a fantastic location! We are fully committed to our guests enjoying their vacation in Orlando/Kissimmee Florida as much as we do every time we come here. We feel this unit is excellent value for money, as we are constantly updating, upgrading and maintaining, to make our guests' stay even more enjoyable. We want you to enjoy your stay in our condo, and be excited to return! We love our repeat guests!

Great - very comfortable and convenient place from which to visit the parks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shawna's condo for four nights while visiting Universal studios. The accommodation suited our needs perfectly - it was convenient for the parks and a a lovely place to retreat to in the evening. Everything you need for self catering, comfortable beds, and the complex is both safe and quiet. Would happily recommend to anyone seeking accommodation for their visit to Orlando.

A welcome retreat after a day at the parks!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 19 days and enjoyed it thoroughly. Shawna was fantastic to deal with and you can tell a lot of love and attention has gone into making this a place guests will enjoy. There are even games and books in the cabinet if you have time to use them, not to mention a stroller, and toys for the pool, etc. We’ve never had anything like that in any of the other condos we’ve rented.

It’s nice being away from the parks and having the use of a great pool the kids loved as well as the basketball courts.

There was a brand new Walmart really close by that said ‘opening soon’ but didn’t open in time for us to visit. There was a Target fairly close by however that we frequented with lots of restaurant options which was terrific.

We will definitely be staying here next time!

The property was lovely.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from staying in the condo for 2 weeks, I must say the condo was lovely, such a good size for 4 people, the complex is lovely as well as the pool and games room. such an excellent location as very close to the 912 where there are plenty of places to eat and a few good bars for a night out. It's also close to all the Disney and universal parks and shopping malls, Shawna has been great any problems or questions before/during our stay she has been on the other end of the phone. Would definitely be booking the condo again in the future. Would recommend this condo to anyone. Thanks again Shawna

Very close to Disney parks

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo although issues with animal poo on stairs outside condo and insects especially ants inside condo. Condo very well stocked. Maybe higher TV stand in second bedroom as lying in bed it's hard to watch.

Owner's Response: PLEASE READ OUR RESPONSE IN ITS ENTIRETY! I am quite disappointed in this review because we really went above and beyond to assist you and your family in this uncontrollable situation that stemmed from Hurricane Irma. THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE SHARED, DOES NOT AT ALL PERTAIN TO OUR CONDO, AS YOU DID NOT PHYSICALLY STAY IN OUR CONDO. Our unit does not have any of the negative issues you have outlined in your review! You have reviewed the WRONG condo, but when I contacted VRBO about the incorrect condo being reviewed, because we assisted you, they stated they cannot remove this review, which is quite unsettling, as we rely on our reviews to assist us with future bookings, and the comments in this review do not pertain to our unit, or even our building, at all. I am very disappointed that this review has been published under our family condo, the condo you stayed at and have reviewed, was NOT ours, and other than simply assisting you find something which we hoped would be helpful, we have no affiliation with the other condo! After hurricane Irma came through, because you were originally scheduled to be my guest, and I wanted to make sure you had a nice stress free holiday and not worry about finding another vacation property, with your consent, I chose to assist you during this time, rather than simply refund your money and Ieave you on your own to seek last minute accomodation. Some roof/ceiling repairs needed to be done in my unit and I did not want to inconvenience you with the work and noise. I am disappointed for you that the other unit was not to the same high standards mine is always kept, unfortunately, I was not at all familiar with the other unit, but we did not have many options due to work doing on on the grounds, and other condos, at that time, after hurricane Irma. There are NO insects or ants in my unit (we have regular pest control in place to prevent this) I can assure you of that, NO animal poo on our stairs (you were in an entirely different building and this has never happened in our building) and of course the TV you are referring to is not ours. I am glad you found the location of Windsor Palms convenient, but ALL the other negative items mentioned are NOT relevant to our condo. I am very sorry the alternate condo you stayed at did not live up to your expectations, but we were only trying to help you and your family during this very stressful time after the hurricane.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this property and we couldn't be happier. Kitchen is stocked with lots of dishes and supplies to make family meals. The beds are comfortable which is so important when I am booking a place to stay. My son's quote about the comforters in the 2nd bedroom "I know why these are called comforters because they are comfy".

Perfect Family resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week, and it was just perfect. Windsor Palms is a beautiful area, well kept in every aspect, nice and quiet. And just a few minutes from Orlandos biggest attractions.

The condo is well kept, neatly decorated with everything you need. The bedrooms are descent sized with enough space to store your luggage.

Just perfect for Your family of four.
