Why Polly Esplen chose Kissimmee
We first visited Windsor Hills in 2007 (not our first visit to the area) and fell in love with the resort and it's proximity to Disneyworld. Our children were young and being able to spend a few hours in one of the parks, head home for a rest and then back out later was just brilliant! We are a real mix of "theme park junkies" and nature lovers. It is just as easy to spend a day kayaking in a national park, take an airboat ride, spend a day at the coast or visit the theme parks. If you want a day to relax the resort facilities provide everything you need. The luxury of the townhouse gives so much flexibility when compared to a hotel room with space to spread out and relax. We come home from the area feeling as though we have really seen and done something for everyone.
What makes this House unique
A short drive to everything you could possibly want. Having an end unit as well as an open outlook from the rear of the property means we really have bought a house on a premium plot. It even has a southern exposure so gets loads of light and sun throughout the day. (Some homes back onto each other). It's great to put your feet up by the splash pool and watch the kids play in the park. The townhouses have a great position on the resort as they are only 3-4 minutes walk to the clubhouse and main pool. No need to get the car out. We waited a few years for the right unit to come up and have never regretted that decision.

I could have given this review a solid 5 stars!!
The only thing hold me back from giving 5 stars is a bit minor. To me it wasnt a huge deal, I know this is Florida and there are bugs. I also notice the home wasnt booked for about 2 weeks before my arrival. I so guess they cleaned it when they did and didnt come back for a touch up before I arrived. When. I walked in I was greeted by a few dead bugs by the front door aswell as the kids room upstairs. Again to me not a huge deal. The vacuum was wiped out and they were gone. Probably shouldn't have been the way we started out experience. But other then that we had an amazing time!! The home itself was spacious enough for my wife son and I. All the bed were the most comfortable bed I have came across renting thur vrbo so far. The community itself is also beautiful and well maintained. Staff were very polite and helpful. Overall other then having to clean bugs as soon as I walked. I would highly recommend staying here. I know we'll be back to Windsor Hills.
Thank you for leaving your review and I am so glad that you all enjoyed your holiday. I am disappointed that you were greeted by some dead insects and am glad that it wasn't a big deal for you and that our pest control is obviously working! I will speak to our manager as they do pre-arrival checks but maybe the house was missed this time.
Windsor Hills is ideally located. The Townhouse is great and has every thing you need - it literally is home from home. Attractions are all accessible as road networks are within a short distance - e.g. 15 minute drive to Disney. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
We are a great stay. Everything was clean, love bugs were bad at the pool during the day but that’s to be excepted this time of year, from what we read online. We had a little visitor in our bed the first night but we got the lizard out and all was good! Lol would stay again!!
I am so glad you had a great time and we look forward to welcoming you back for another visit in the future. I am glad that you weren't worried by your little visitor - they will sneak through an open door given half a chance but are very friendly!
A well kept townhouse that made for a pleasant stay.
We found everything to be in good working order and clean. We had a very comfortable stay and would stay there again if we return to the area for vacation.
Thank you Rod, you will very welcome to return
All went well with our stay.
We were pleased!
Perfect for our family
The townhouse was perfect for our family of four with two small children. The kids loved the Disney characters that were all throughout the townhouse but they especially loved the Disney stuffed animals on the two twin beds. There was a bed rail available which was great for our two and a half year old. We didn’t do a ton of cooking but the kitchen appeared to have everything needed if we had. The community pool was so nice. It has a beach type entry which was great with two little ones. The splash pad area looked great too. We also used the community park which was so nice to have nearby. All the amenities are easy walking distance even for little ones. The community was clean and quiet and close to Disney. We really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for such a lovely review - I hope you will be able to visit again for another family holiday

Starter grocery packs can be arranged on request and will be placed in the cupboards and fridge ready for your arrival. This little touch means that you don't have to go straight to the supermarket when you arrive after a long flight.
The resort cafe/sundry store offers light meals and drinks and also organises bi-weekly bar-b-ques by the pool. This is a great opportunity to completely relax on the days when you want to stay by the pool and enjoy the facilities.
