Easy to get to and only 20 minutes drive from Disney by car or bus, it provides the optimal base for a full on day at the parks then some well earned rest in the comfort of your own home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
The house is truly amazing. We had dishwasher and washing machine pods available at arrival. Every detail is very thoughtful and it makes you feel like home. The house had an amazing playroom and some toys available for toddlers. Crib, high chair and other useful things were available. Pool was amazing, every bedroom truly comfortable. It is a really amazing place to stay and Josée is an amazing host! She made sure nothing was missing and that we were comfortable at all times. Truly recommended.
The house looks just like the pics posted. Josee was very accommodating in providing enough toiletries for at least 3 days. The house is clean and spacious with lots of towels for the pool. Clear instructions for the check-in/check-out were provided which made the process a lot easier. Josee was easily available for contact should we needed it but fortunately we did not have to. I will definitely stay here again and advise others to do so. Especially if you have children. I cant wait to come back!
We have rented many times to visit Florida in Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms. This house was very clean and up to date. The communication with the owner was top notch.
This was the most incredible AirBnb stay we’ve ever had. We needed a house for our entire family that travelled to Central Florida for our adoption. It needed to be comfortable, clean, and have fun things to do because it’s hard to travel with a newborn. Josee and her family had not only the perfect home for us, but their generosity and hospitality were more than we could have ever hoped for. They even had a cute gift for our newborn when we checked into the villa. The space was clean, the pool was the perfect size, and the game room was a blast! Each room had very comfortable beds and it’s own bathroom. They provided fast WiFi, cribs/toys for children, and pool floats! The gated community had an awesome gym, general store, game room, and a WATER PARK! The recreational park had tennis courts, putting greens, sand volleyball and basketball courts with all the equipment needed at the front desk. The location of the property was perfect too. It was less than a minute from a wal-mart, under 5 minutes to a lot of food places, and 15 minutes from all of the Disney Park, Disney Springs and Outlet Malls. The community was very quiet as well, which we appreciated. Josee made us feel very special during a time in our life that we will never forget. We can’t thank them enough and will be forever grateful!
Don’t worry, be happy
Even with all that’s going on, this was a blessing in disguise. Really needed this and everything was perfect. You can’t live your life in fear, just be cautious in all you do. No complaints whatsoever. Can’t wait to go again! Florida Rocks!!!!
