Villa in Windsor Hills, Florida Orlando/Kissimmee, USA - Peaceful Location, Facing Lake, Short Level Walk To The Clubhouse And A Few Minutes Drive To Disney
About Jane Sandon-Allum
We live in Dorset, UK and have 2 grown up daughters of 22 and 24. The States and Florida in particular have been our holiday destination for almost 30 years and we have had some wonderful times there. We decided to buy a lake front home on Windsor Hills (after much research!) as an investment, because it is one of the best locations in Orlando and the nearest to Disney World. So as family holidays go, this part of the world takes some beating!
Jane Sandon-Allum purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Jane Sandon-Allum chose Kissimmee
WINDSOR HILLS is consistently voted top resort of the area. It is a private, guarded, gated community and the nearest to Disney World and very close to other attractions. We have been careful to price our Villa to reflect that, also the high standard of furnishings and accommodation and the tranquil location overlooking the beautiful conservation lake (with no rear neighbours!) and just a couple of minutes walk to the clubhouse. Our guests agree, it is a perfect location. You are also literally minutes away from everything: Disney, Animal Kingdom, Legoland, Sea World, Universal Studios (Harry Potter), Water Parks, supermarkets, shops and numerous restaurants catering for all tastes. So whether you just want to relax or be thoroughly entertained everyday, it is all here!
What makes this Villa unique
The Villa truly has the best position on Windsor Hills overlooking the stunning tranquil conservation lake, filled with water lilies and birdlife. With views like these, from the villa, pool or decking after a busy day.....well, life doesn't get much better! It is an immaculately clean, extremely spacious home, airy and beautifully decorated by interior designers. The Villa is also just a couple of minutes level walk to Windsor Hills Clubhouse and all the resorts free to use 5* facilities. The children's themed Disney Castle playground is a minute's walk from the villa in the other direction. The Villa is luxurious in style and maintained to the highest standard by our local manager and his excellent team of cleaners, housekeepers and maintenance workers. We feel it is a great advantage having such a first class local property company caring for our home. For our guests being able to contact them and to have available their wide range of concierge services, together with their immense knowledge of the area and Windsor Hills, we think is a true benefit. Like other guests and many repeat guests, who have loved their time in our Villa, we are confident you will have the most memorable, happiest holiday there. Enjoy! ❤️

May 2019 Family Holiday
Beautiful villa in a fantastic location. We were a party of 9 with 4 children. The house was perfect for our needs; extremely well equipped and really close to on site amenities as well as easy access to Disney. So close that we were able to pop home for an afternoon break in a day of park visiting.
We loved the villa and found Jane to be really informative throughout the whole process. I’d highly recommend this villa to anyone considering a Florida break and hope that we’d be able to return one day in the future.
Lovely villa in a lovely location.
Very relaxing. This was a fantastic home for the last week of our holiday. Thank you Jane and CGV for providing a great property with great service.
Thank you so much for your lovely review and kind words Rebecca. Delighted you all had such a fantastic time and also found the villa and lake view so relaxing. We very much look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back on a future occasion. 😊
Great family house
We stayed for one week, April 7 to 13, with four adults and four kids under 10. Jane was very easy to deal with and prompt with responses to any questions upon booking and getting the details transferred over. Overall the house was great, it was clean upon arrival, the beds were great and a few helpful items were left for us. We had an issue with the pool where the temperature was recorded at 97 degrees...a little too hot for our liking. We worked with the owner and the property management company to help fix the problem. Both were responsive. It took a few days to solve the water temperature problem and resulted in a completely new heater being installed. It's just our bad luck it happened on the week we were there. The community pool is awesome in Windsor Hills and the new water slides were a hit with the kids. This is our second time staying in the Windsor Hills community and we really it.
Thank you so much for your kind comments about the villa and we are delighted you had such a great time there despite the pool heater suddenly and unexpectedly deciding to go into heating overdrive! We so appreciate your kind patience while we, with our property manager, were so actively trying to resolve it every which way, until a complete new heating system was installed. Agree the Windsor Hill Clubhouse community pool, just a few minutes stroll from the villa is brilliant, especially with the new water park. A big hit with children. We hope very much to have the opportunity of welcoming you again, with a cooler pool this time! Our warm and sincere thanks again for being such lovely guests. 😊
We had such a wonderful time at Your Villa. Its was beautiful and everything was perfect. Beautifully furnished and so clean. Loved watching the fireworks from the back deck area every evening. You have thought of everything right down to dvds and board games for the kids.Loved the book section as well. Thanks so much for the welcome package that you had waiting. We will definitely be back for sure. I cant think of one thing I would change. We felt so comfortable and at home.You were so nice and friendly to deal with which made everything so easy. The pool heat was nice on those cooler mornings but by late afternoon the water was really warm. We liked it that way. Thank you so much for everything I will be a repeat customer. I already want to go back lol
Thank you so much for your very kind comments and lovely review Carolann, it is much appreciated as it really gives other guests looking to book a good idea what the villa is like from a guest point of view, and all that it has to offer. Agree, watching the Disney fireworks from the pool decking is great, and no crowds to jostle with either! You were lovely to work with too and we can’t wait to welcome you back. Thank you so much again and look forward to hearing from you in due course. 😊
Owner is awesome to work with
Everything pictured is as noted on VRBO. I greatly appreciated the welcome basket, enough to have a breakfast and lunch before stepping out for more food.
The location on Windsor Hills is the best you’ll find. I would definitely rent here again
Thank you so much for your very kind comments Lawrence and you were awesome to work with too! Pleased you enjoyed our substantial complimentary ‘welcome basket’ - as we realise the last thing anyone wants to do when they arrive is to go food shopping!
Yes agree, the location of the villa is very hard to beat and we look forward to welcoming you back on a future vacation. 😊�
Amazing Week at Disney
Our family had an amazing week at this property. This house had everything we needed. With several little ones we felt added peace of mind with the pool fence and patio door alarm. The patio offers privacy from the immediate neighbors with a great view of the lake/clubhouse. We enjoyed the short walk to both the community pool and park (block in either direction). The kids especially enjoyed the waterpark and large community pool. Extremely convenient to major Disney parks (approx 15 min away). When we had several questions come up during our stay, Jane and her management team replied instantly. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and definitely recommend this to families with little ones.
We hope to be able to stay at your beautiful home again soon!
Thank you so much Steve for your lovely review and very kind comments, it is much appreciated. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and that the little ones had such a great time. We like to say if our guests are aged between 0-90 we have you covered! Agree, the villa is in a perfect location, just a short walk to all Windsor Hills main facilities, but also only a short drive to the Parks! We would be delighted to have you return and hope very much to have the pleasure of welcoming you again. 😊
