Hi ChristineMany thanks for your kind words. It’s always good to hear have enjoyed their stay.Due to the time of year of your stay I didn’t think to offer pool/spa heat this is normally only required between September and April. Perhaps I need to mention in all quotes moving forward. Thank you for this feedback.Thanks again. Pam
Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful stay at the Windsor Hill Resort in Kissimmee Florida. The home was located near all of the attractions and places to eat. The play house in the home gave us plenty of opportunities to spend time bonding as a family. The kids loved the swimming private pool. We could not get the Hot Tub to work. The owners of the Vacation home were very helpful throughout our vacation experience. My family dose plan on a return visit in the near future.

Hi. Many thanks for the kind words however I feel you have reviewed the incorrect home as we have not taken any rentals since March and are not on the resort you mentioned. Pam
Amazing stay, no need to look anywhere else
We’ve stayed at this villa twice. The communication from Pam was always excellent, answering our queries but also providing really useful hints and tips for days out, places to eat and shop and so on. Our favourite restaurant was the Longhorn - there was one just down the 192 and also on I-Drive. The IHOP and Perkins closest to the villa are also great!!There are so many villas to choose from but it’s the owners that make the difference and the promptness of replies to the little extras you’ll find out when you book and stay make this villa the best choice.First impressions after the easy drive from the airport were excellent. Such a lovely resort and registering your car took a minute or two. The villa was easy to find then walking in the door is exactly as per the pictures. Everything is to a high standard. There’s everything you need to save space in your luggage for shopping!!The rooms are very well equipped and the beds are really comfy. Tv’s in each room with game consoles in the kids rooms. The garage will be well used with the games or just somewhere to relax.It was very clean on both visits with new equipment the second time which to us showed Pam really looks after her guests.The location itself is close enough to all the main attractions but far enough to be peaceful when enjoying the pool. It’s just off the 192 with all the shops and restaurants together with being a very short distance to Old Town Kissimmee. Kennedy Space Centre and things like the Millennium Mall are within easy drive as well as being able to follow the 192 all the way to the coast. A much nicer drive as it’s really quiet. Cocoa Beach is a bit further up the coast from the beach you get to should you want to visit the Ron Jon shop and Cocoa Pier. Worth the drive if you want a day away from the parks.Honestly couldn’t think of anything we didn’t like. We highly recommend you stop looking and book Pams villa.

Better every time we stay!!!
15 minutes to Disney, 25 minutes to Universal, 58 minutes to Busch Gardens Tampa!!!!!! This house has everything! Just staying by the private pool and hot tub is a vacation!!! This is a wonderful 5 bedroom home, with 4 bathrooms. Game room with fooz ball, air hockey, pool table, video game console and WiFi . Full kitchen with all the appliances and dishes, pots and pans, oven mitts, breakfast table, and a formal dining table and more! There are towels for the bathrooms and extra blankets for the beds. A full size washer and dryer, so you don’t have to overpack. There is a Walmart super center for groceries about 8 minutes away. The next time I come down I am going to do a curb side pickup at the Walmart on my way to the house !!! It doesn’t get any easier than that !! This house has everything but you!!!! Stop wasting money on a hotel!!!!!

It was our pleasure to welcome you back for a 3rd visit. No matter the size of the party the home is warm and welcoming as well as relaxing.Your always welcome to stay. It’s an honour to welcome back returning guests.Thanks againPam
Loved it !!
Stayed here for 13 nights in May, loved every minute of it.Check in was smooth, no issues at all. Loved the villa, the neighbourhood is lovely is quiet and feels secure. There was never anything to worry about.The villa itself, we just loved, we spend a few nights just chilling in the games room and by the pool. The cable showed Premier League football too, which is always a bonus.Emerald Island is close to the 192, so food options are plenty and you can get to the Disney Parks within 10 minutes.Honestly, I loved it, I'm looking at coming back to Orlando 8th November, with only 3 adults, so sadly this villa is slighty out of our price range. Honestly though, you'll have no regrets staying here. If anyone reading this has any questions about the villa, please message me on here, I'd be more than happy to help you.5/5 easily !
