We just spent Christmas week.
Best way to spend Christmas.
The condo was perfect, clean & best view. It had everything we needed.
Richie answered all questions quickly and was very accommodating.
Thank you Richie....Happy New Year!

Last minute booking
I was born and raised in Florida, moved to GA for 20 years and we have returned to live on the west coast. I have used VRBO for years to find vacation rentals on the beach, but little did I know there were more options than the cramped hotel rooms near Disney, or the resorts which are ridiculously priced.
I found Richie's place on a whim. I checked VRBO and had no idea there were rentals that close to Disney for such reasonable rates.
For what we would have spent on a hotel room, we rented his 3bdm/2bth Condo with more than enough amenities at the resort for all ages.
We will absolutely rent from Richie again and perhaps next time will enjoy the complex as many other families did during our stay.
Richie was so easy to work with and we will be returning soon.
The condo was perfect.
The beds were very comfortable and the condo was very clean. The owner was very helpful and replied back quickly to answer any questions.
Would use the condo again.
Lake Charles, Louisiana
Awesome! Would definitely stay there again
Condo was clean and very comfortable. Very close to Disney. Scheduling was easy always available for questions with immediate responses. Security deposit was returned within days of after staying at the condo would definitely recommend this to anybody and would love to stay there again
Another great stay
We feel blessed having found this condo some years ago and have just enjoyed another week in this well-equipped, perfectly-located home away from home.
Richie makes your stay even more accommodating by providing details ahead of time regarding condo rules and use. I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email a week before our arrival, reminding me of my personalized door entry code - the same one I had used during my previous visit. Just another example of superior record-keeping combined with a personal touch.
You'll find "starter" paper goods in the condo, but be aware that extra paper towels, toilet paper, etc. will most likely be needed and should be picked up either at the on-site store or off-site.
This and other details are included in the comprehensive guidelines provided by Richie ahead of time. We felt good about leaving extras behind for the next guest, such as pods for the Keurig, etc.
Another perfect stay for us, but our not our last.
Thanks, Richie, for sharing your wonderful home with so many others.
Excellent family condo and location
Richie offers a great location and excellent amenities at Windsor Hills, only a very short, simple drive to Disney.
The condo is well appointed and comfortable and very clean. The clubhouse and pool are very close by and convenient. We swam everyday in the large pool with the kids and loved it.
Mornings were great to kickoff with coffee on the balcony overseeing the beautiful pool area.
Parking is close by, just outside the condo, with a convenient elevator to the third floor.
It is a gated community and security staff we're always pleasant.
Restaurants are only a few minutes drive away, and we ventured out to some of the malls and outlets for shopping.
Overall, we had an amazing stay and Richie, the owner, was always available to answer questions or offer advice prior to or during our stay.
We would recommend his condo to anyone.
A wonderful place and very accommodating!!
We arrived a bit late in the evening. We had a question for the condo manager so the resort let us use their phone and we were able to reach the manager right away. The resort stayed open a while after closing to ensure we could use their phone again if need be. Our stay was during Hurricane Matthew so the owners contacted us to make sure everything was alright and were very flexible if we needed an extra days stay. Of course the rooms were very clean and it had everything we could ask for and more. We loved the pool and the lifeguard was great watching the kids on the slide. We had no problems parking close to the condo daily. Disney and Universal were just a short drive away. Everything we needed to know was sent to us in advance. Best of all.... the beds were really comfortable for a very much needed good nights sleep. Thanks so much!
Five Stars is Well Deserved
This condo is as advertised.
Close to the pool and community clubhouse, well appointed, and very clean, with nice touches for families with young children (e.g a bin full of Disney stuffed animals).
As noted in many other reviews, Richie takes the time to guide you through a stress free rental process and is quick to respond to questions.
Condo location is superb for visiting Disney and is also convenient to dining, supermarket, etc.
Would definitely stay again.
Great Place--Clean, Well Furnished, Safe.
Very clean, very nicely decorated and furnished.
Loved the pool and hot tub!
Super close to Disney
Stayed in this beautiful condo with my husband, 19 yr old daughter and 11 yr old son. The condo was clean updated and great location right by the pool! We rent a lot of condos on vacation and I must say that Richie has been the BEST to work with. Responds quickly to emails, gave us great information without us even asking and super organized. We would definitely stay here again!
This was a wonderful well-kept condo! My family of 4 loved it. The pool is within quick walking distance with an amazing balcony view of the pool!! We can't wait to come back. The condo offered everything you would need right down to cooking utensils pots and pans, and T so in every bedroom!!!!
Very nice and comfortable!
WONDERFUL PROPERTY makes for a WONDERFUL vacation
I often use VRBO, and do extensive research on a property before making a decision. We were planning a trip to Disney and all I knew was I wanted to stay at Windsor Hills due to the close proximity to the Walt Disney Parks. It took us 10-15 min. to get to the parks each day. The Condo was just as described. All the comforts of home, actually it was nicer and cleaner than mine, lol. I do want to take a moment to rave on the mattresses. I have insomnia and have trouble sleeping in my own bed much less someone else's. The beds were amazing and I slept excellent every night. I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone. My young daughter loved the stuffed animals and the Disney bathroom!. The owner is very helpful and easy to work with. I look forward to staying here many times in the future.
Relaxing in beautiful condo with wonderful comforts of home
This is our second time staying at the pool view condo and just like the first time - it was fabulous!!! We visited Orlando in 2012 and again 2016.
We booked this condo one year in advance this time because we had such a wonderful experience booking with Richie and also enjoying the condo last time we came to the Orlando area. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a get away from home!! We found the condo to be comfortable and beautiful!
The view from the living room window was a joy to wake up to each morning! We had opportunity to swim every day we were there and the pool is clean and accommodating to all ages. We brought our 16 month old granddaughter and she loved being able to walk into the pool on the one side for young children.
The condo is centrally located in Florida so if you are interested in visiting the ocean, its not far away (about 1-1/2 hour either way). We went to Cocoa Beach one day and later in the week we visited Clearwater Beach. What beautiful views and beaches to relax on. The condo is also so close to all the attractions in Orlando - it was great fun to only have a short drive to each of the areas we visited.
The condo was spotless and had everything we needed for the week - even the highchair, crib, and stroller and beach towels!! The rooms have very comfortable beds. Both bathrooms are sizable and clean.
We will definitely come back here again for another visit if we ever come into the Orlando area - Thank you Richie for making our condo a "home away from home" for us!!! We totally enjoyed your place and have recommended it to others!!
Sterling Heights, Michigan
We had a great vacation!
What wonderful memories were made here!
Richie was a class act all the way- answering all questions and making sure our stay was great. The condo is beautiful and very well stocked with practically every amenity or item needed. Also its location was perfect getting to and from the theme parks. The pool area was so nice to take a day off from Disney and just relax with the family
We had a great vacation!
Having stayed at several condos at the Windsor Hills Resort I can truly say this has been the best experience. From the ease of booking, the quality personal interaction in the lead up to our vacation and the standard of the facilities on our arrival nothing was overlooked.
The resort itself is second to none and I can report that the condo matches it. I would like to add that the convenience of being able to drive straight to the condo and use a personalized keypad for access after a long and tiring journey is a massive plus - I've lost count of the times we've driven up and down the 192 trying to find an office where keys can be collected!
We will definitely be in contact for our next visit

Fantastic Home Away From Home
We just returned from our dream vacation to Disney World. Vacationers included me and my husband, son and daughter-in-law, and grandkids age 9 and 5. We had a fabulous time.
The unit was so welcoming and had all the comforts of home.
It was very convenient to the Disney parks and yet provided a nice rest away from the hustle and bustle when needed.
My granddaughter especially loved all the stuffed animals in the kid's bedroom. On a few days, we went to the parks early and then returned there for an afternoon swim and then went back to the parks for the evening. One evening, we stayed in and watched a movie on the DVD player.
I would happily recommend this place to any and all.
Fantastic Property Perfectly Placed
My family just completed a week-long vacation in Orlando. From start to finish this was a fantastic experience.
The property owner, Richie, was proactive in his communications and really stayed on top of this rental agreement from start to finish. Couldn't have been happier with our experience with Richie.
The property itself was great. Third floor condo directly overlooking the pool with easy access to the pool, the club house, stairs, elevator and the front gate. It's positioned such that you don't see any traffic from the front gate but once you're in your car you're off the property in less than a minute. Three bedrooms (two king beds and one room with 2 twins) as well as a pull out couch. TVs in every room. Kitchen was well stocked with dinnerware, cookware and utensils. Fridge had been turned down when we arrived but cooled down in a couple hours after adjusting the temperature.
Despite being directly off the pool we noticed little to no noise from the pool even when it was in high use.
Access to local attractions was great. The Disney property was incredibly easy (at the Magic Kingdom in about 15 min). Lots of grocery stores (highly recommend Publix), restaurants and shops within 5 minutes of the property. LEGOLAND was about 40 min, very easy drive. Sea World / Discovery Cove was about 20-30 min away depending on traffic.
Great experience. Great location. Easy access to everything you'll likely want in Orlando but just far enough off the beaten path to feel secluded.
Stephens City, VA
We had an amazing trip and absolutely LOVED the condo. My 4 year old son affectionately named it, "the little house". Many days while at the parks he would ask to go back to the little house as he wanted to relax and go swimming. One day he even opted to "stay home with grandma and grandpa" and skipped the day at the park as he was so happy at the condo. My parents have stayed in many condo's throughout the years and really enjoy cooking and having family meals. My mother was so very impressed with how well the condo was "stocked" with every appliance and tool she could possibly desire. She has said that it is the nicest condo that she has ever stayed at in her life. My whole family enjoyed the condo so much, that many days we just stayed right onsite and enjoyed the facilities available providing us a good chance to rest and relax. We participated in the Disney Marathon 10K on Friday and was so pleased at how close the condo was to Epcot. After the race it was nice to know that we would soon be home to the "little house" after the race was finished; and able to relax. Thank you Richie for allowing us to stay in the condo. When we return to Orlando in the future, you will be our first contact to see if we can stay with you again
All the excellent reviews led me to choose this condo and I was not led astray!
I have stayed in the Windsor Hills Resort twice now; its location cannot be beat. The resort has fabulous amenities and this condo is comfortable, clean, and completely stocked with a great view of the beautiful resort pool. The beds were very comfortable and my children loved playing with all of the Disney stuffed animals.
The owner, Richie, is extremely helpful and considerate.
My only hesitation upon recommending this condo to anyone is the fear that it will be too popular and become hard to book for any future visits for my family! 🙂
I would love to stay here again.
Thank you Richie for such great accommodations.

Pool View Condo - Best Disney Vacation Ever!
You know you've hit number one when your family says WOW, once you walk through this Pool View Condo and the comments you read about it, you know you have arrived at your home away from home.
My wife and I were joined by our daughter, son in law & 2 grandkids to head over to the Disney Parks. It formed the perfect trip, everything was here.
We did Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Mickey's Special Christmas Party, Typhoon Lagoon, Sea World and Kennedy Space Centre.
Adults and Kids enjoyed the pool & waterslide here, and the proximity to everything - it was perfect.
Our trip was uneventful and everybody enjoyed themselves albeit we did a lot in the time we were here.
Richie made everything easy for us.
Condo was spotless when we arrived, and the living space was relaxing and comfortable.
We would highly recommend this condo to our friends, and will be back again.
Another item off our Bucket List! Grandkids Amazed at Mickey Mouse!!!! At age 4 and 7 what else is more important?
Just to add - 1st class all the way ..... Thanks for everything.

So Close To Disney!!!!
This condo is great!!
Has all the amenities you need plus it is nice and clean!
In a great location close to Disney. No traffic, even after staying and watching the fireworks!
Richie definitely takes care of you and always follows through on what he says he will do. He is always willing to help should you need something during your stay.
I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking to have a great time while visiting Disney or surrounding attractions.
Stay here and save the money versus staying at Disney.
I would definitely stay here again.
The whole family had fun and the kids certainly enjoyed the pool!
Pool View Condo - Should be subtitled "Nicest and Most Convenient Place to Stay in Orlando"
We loved our stay at Richie's condo.
Arriving was seamless and the condo was nicely set up and welcoming.
We were pleasantly surprised at how kid-friendly the condo was -- right down to lowered light switches!
We actually took 2 rest days because the complex was so nice.
Beautiful pool, gym, sundry facility, nearby playgrounds, and quiet area in which to explore was so nice in between those crazy park days.
Speaking of park days, everything was so close. 7 minutes to Disney, 20 minutes to Universal, 40 minutes to LEGOLAND, and 20 minutes to Gatorland.
Oh, and minutes from a Super Target and Publix.
Everything was exceptional, before, during, and after our stay. Highly recommended!
Perfect place and location! So close to Disney!
This was the first time we stayed outside of the parks and we would do it again! We have 2 children, aged 10 and 11. The condo was SO nice and VERY clean! We had a view of the pool from our window and literally just walked steps to the pool area and welcome center with the game room. The pool is huge and it was never overcrowded. The kids loved the waterslide and hot tub. Also very well kept.
We loved how close it was to Disney. It took less than 10 minutes to get to all the parks! Right down the street! We were also close to stores to get our groceries and other things.
The condo had all we needed. Having the washer and dryer in the condo was huge since we did a lot of laundry.
Richie the owner is so nice, helpful and accommodating. You can tell her really cares that you have all you may need and your questions answered. All the information you may need is also at the condo when you arrive. It was so easy and we had no problems at all!
I miss it already! It really is an amazing spot and when we go again, we will certainly be contacting
Richie! Thank you for making our trip magical!
Perfect condo for Disney
The condo was perfect and a great place to relax after a day at the parks. It is close enough to come back and relax before going back for the fireworks at night. It is very well stocked.
Thank you having a high chair and pack and play, two things less to pack. The condo was very clean and comfortable. It truly felt like a home away from home. I have already recommended it to people I work with who are planning trips to Kissimmee.
Thank you Richie for sharing this condo with us.
Amazing Family Vacation
My family had a wonderful time staying in Richie's condo! It was perfect overlooking the pool and spacious and clean. We loved how it was only a 5 min drive to the Disney property so that was very convenient!
I would stay here again in a heartbeat as well as recommend his condo to others.
Thanks so much!
Lake Dallas, Texas
Family of 6 from Indiana
This was our second stay at this condo, and our family agrees that if/when we return to Orlando, we'll be staying here again and again.
Not only does the property suit our needs perfectly, working with the owner, Richie, is a pleasant experience, every time!
Plenty of space for all 6 of us. My in-laws even joined us for one night, and we found the closets stocked with ample extra bedding for two of our kids to make up the sofa-bed. We cooked dinner in the stocked kitchen every night and never needed a thing that we couldn't find in the drawers or cabinets.
The first time we stayed in this condo, we visited for a Disney vacation. This year, we decided to take it easy, enjoy the pool, and maybe hit a beach or two. The ~90-minute drive time to Cocoa Beach and Clearwater Beach were both totally worth the trips. It was fun for our kids to see the difference between an Atlantic beach and a Gulf beach just two days apart.
What a great location, right in the middle of the two!
The Martin family
Wonderful condo vacation!
We spent a week at Richie's condo. From the moment we booked our stay to the prompt return of our security deposit, it was an absolute pleasure interacting with Richie. The condo was beautiful. The location fantastic- what a beautiful view of the pool!! My daughter loved having breakfast on the balcony overlooking the pool each morning. The condo was spacious, extremely well-stocked, and felt like home. Its close proximity to Disney was extremely convenient. We can't say enough good things about Richie and the condo!! We would definitely stay again!!
Ajax, Ontario, Canada
Perfect Disney vacation
We just got home from a week in Richie's condo. It was perfect! We had the two of us, our 5 year old, and my 70-year-old father. He had privacy and quiet from us, as the second king bedroom was on the other side of the condo from ours. My daughter LOVED all the Disney stuffed animals in her room and it is what got her very excited to be in Orlando. Richie has thought of everything! So many towels, a stroller, a pack-n-play, a high chair… everything. The pool was great - perfect for my 5 year old as the whole pool was shallow enough for her to walk all around. We spent 1/2 days at the parks (Very easy, 5 minute drive) and 1/2 days at the pool. It was great. I am so glad we did this rather than stay "on property". We were able to cook our own meals, relax by the pool, and still get to the parks in 10 minutes even in heavy Easter break traffic. I was a little worried that there would be a lot of noise coming from the pool - but there was none. The windows are sound proof! But, even sitting on the screened in porch was so nice. The pool closes at 10pm, so no problems with noise (even when open, it didn't bother me). Richie was so attentive to our needs, as was Michael his manager. Thank you so much!
We just returned home from our stay at the condo. We were so sad to leave, and from now on, we won't even consider staying anywhere else when we visit Orlando again.
There were 4 adults and 2 children staying in the condo. We were very comfortable, plenty of room for everyone. The beds were super comfortable.
The condo was in pristine condition and had everything we needed, plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, even kitchen utensils for toddlers. There are 2 elevators for the building, which was nice; you never, ever, will wait for an elevator.
The condo's location is perfect. Literally 5 minutes from Disney World. We were actually disappointed that we weren't able to stay longer just to spend more time at the condo. The pool is AMAZING. The fresh sandwiches in the store/snack stand were surprisingly delicious. Two of the days we actually left Magic Kingdom in the middle of the day just to come back to sit by the pool and have lunch there. I used the exercise center every day. All of the equipment was pretty new and very clean.
The staff at Windsor Hills were all very friendly. They do a great job of keeping the community secure.
The owner of the condo, Richie, is fantastic. He's great to work with, very accessible, friendly and accommodating.
I could go on and on about how wonderful this condo is. We were so happy with our decision to stay here and can guarantee that anyone that stays here will have a similar experience.

Second time we stay here. We love It!
It's the second time me and my family stay at this condo. We like it so much that we didn't look to any other rental offer at Windsor Hills. The condo is very well equipped. And is maintained in a pristine condition. Very clean. From the appliances to the sheets and towels, everything is like new. The mattresses are very comfortable too. The decoration is pleasant and the atmosphere very comfy. In resume: we love it! I can't review the condo without talking about the owner. He's very accessible and extremely polite. Any doubts you have are answered right away and Richie is very, very organized. You will have no problems booking the condo or making contact with him. The only detail is that you can't rent it unless you're checking in and out on Saturdays. If you are looking for a 3 bedrooms condo in Orlando/Kissimmee, you just found it!
Liliana Aquila and family
Best Vacation to Date!
Picking this property was one the best decisions we could have made. We originally had planned our trip to Disney months prior to finding this property. We were going to stay at a nearby hotel. I stumbled across this condo which had a much better value and I was able to book with ease. What initially attracted me to the property was:
Convenience to Disney (5-8 min tops)
The space - This unit has 3 full sz bedrooms and 2 baths
Full Kitchen + Washer/ Dryer
(Anyone with a big family knows how important a kitchen and washer/dryer can be)
The pool with waterslide (On a down day from Disney, this was PERFECT!)
The view of the water slide/ pool from room (I could easily let kids go play and still be able to check on them)
Value (More space at a better price than standard hotel room)
After getting excited I contacted Richie. He was very pleasant, helpful, and ready to answer any questions I had. Upon arrival, it was everything we hoped for and more. The condo is JUST as pictured. The rooms were very clean, stocked, and up to date. The security team, the welcome concierge, and the store clerks were more than helpful. The concierge can help find great discounts on area attractions including Disney. We saved much more than gate prices. No issues parking; the lot had more than enough space.
Also, anyone concerned with the weather – we visited 11/22 – 12/5 and the weather was gorgeous. It was in the upper 70s the entire week. A few rain showers but from what I hear that is to be expected in Florida. The nights were a little cooler but we were still able to enjoy the night and take a dive in the heated pools.
This was our family’s first trip to Florida/ Disney and I definitely see us returning and using this condo as our home away from home.
This property is so beautiful! We loved every minute of our stay there. It was everything the description said it would be and more! It really is luxurious and the entire property as a whole is beautiful! We were so happy how close all the Disney parks are to the condo.
We will definitely book this property again and will recommend to all our friends!
The best part of our experience was dealing with the wonderful owner. He was very easy to work with and extremely helpful.
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
First-timers in Florida and booking through VRBO!!
We really had a terrific two weeks at the Windsor Hills Pool View Condo and it truly was our home away from home. Our two kids, aged 15 and 7, loved having their own rooms and their views of the pool. It was especially enjoyable waking up to the hot air balloons in the sky while we enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony while planning our days to the parks. The location to all of the parks could not have been more convenient and the pool was an excellent way to cool off at the end of a long, hot day…and, boy, was it HOT!!! Apparently we enjoyed the hottest two weeks of the summer in Orlando during our stay…and it only rained twice (for about an hour each time) while we were there! We found everything we could have possibly needed in the well-stocked kitchen and there were more than enough towels for everyone. Everyone from the security team to the Welcome Center were incredibly helpful and the directions Richie provided (including his secret way in and out of Disney) were excellent…even the kids were saying, “Let’s take Richie’s way home!” If there was ever an opportunity to stay at Windsor Hills for us again in the future, or if we know of anyone wishing to visit the Orlando area, we would gladly recommend your condo! Actually, we have even considered the notion of investing in a condo ourselves if the opportunity presented itself. Yet, Richie made everything from the booking process to our stay as easy and stress-free as possible and we appreciated all the information and assistance he provided leading up to our stay! There were no surprises in booking this condo or when we arrived...absolutely everything as was it appeared to be and more!
Brandon, Manitoba, Canada
We stayed at Richie's pool view condo in June 2013. It was clean, nicely decorated and convenient to the parks. We have 2 young children and we enjoyed coming back to the condo for lunch and time at the pool and on the slide before returning to the parks for the evening. Definitely recommend.
Terri Cohen Young
Fabulous set up and well thought out
My husband and I have only stayed with relatives or in a hotel so this totally new experience was perfect for first timers. We did not know what to expect .Only need to buy groceries. A beautiful place overlooking pool area. The large bedrooms and bathrooms are bright and clean. Ample closet space, drawer space whether staying a week or a month. Loved the high ceilings. Has everything from muffin tins to waffle maker to flat grill. So impressed can hardly wait til we can book it again.
The Cormier family
Spruce Grove, Alberta
Everything described about this home was 100% accurate and spot on.
The location had an awesome view of the pool and clubhouse- easy access in and out of the property. The home was maintained well and nicely furnished.
Owner was great to deal with and answered any questions quickly. Great week- Thank you again!
Great place at a very reasonable price!
Our family recently took a vacation to the Orlando area. Along with my wife I have three young children (twins aged 6 and a daughter 8). We spent a week at this beautiful condominium. It's a spacious 3 bedroom condo that's located on the third floor in an elevator building that is minutes by car from all of the Orlando theme parks. My wife and three children loved our stay in this beautiful gated community with a huge swimming pool that had an awesome water slide. Our living quarters had as I stated three large bedrooms and two bathrooms with a beautiful veranda. The apartment was in immaculate shape and clean and had all of the amenities needed such as a washer/dryer so that we could travel lighter than usual. The kitchen was a complete kitchen with a large refrigerator, stove, and microwave. I was able to make coffee every morning with their coffee maker. If I had any questions or concerns, there was a real gentleman named Michael that worked on the grounds that was available if I needed him. I recommend this place for all age groups and especially for young families like ours. We had a great time!
Renata Thomas & family
Great spot for a vacation!
This condo is the perfect location for families looking to visit Disney while enjoying the comforts of home. The condo was perfect for our vacation with 4 adults and two kids. The kids enjoyed the huge pool and slide as well as the basketball courts. Great spot for a vacation!
North Liberty, IN
Our stay in the pool view condo was wonderful. Communication with Richie was great, he answered any and all of our questions and I knew even before we left that our stay would be great.
The location of the condo is perfect. Right by the pool so you don't have to get in the car or walk a long distance to the pool. Parking was never an issue. There were usually spaces right in front of the condo.
The condo is beautifully decorated and in great condition. It's spacious and extremely clean. It was stocked full of everything you would need. From extra pillows and blankets, beach towels, to pots, pans and even a waffle maker!
The beds were very very comfortable. We didn't watch much TV but there are flat panels in every room and the WiFi worked great.
The resort itself is very nice and you could spend time just walking around enjoying the grounds. I would definitely stay here again.
Long review ahead, but I have a lot to say!
When we walked through the door of this condo on the first day of our vacation, we thought we had hit the jackpot!
What a gorgeous place! Everything was clean and tidy. The decor is beautiful, the beds were comfortable, and the amenities were perfect!
Four TV’s with DVD-players...
1. Loved that it has 2 king beds. My 7- and 8-year-olds didn't mind sharing such a big bed. Hard to find other condos with two king-sized beds. The two twins in the other bedroom were perfect for our 3-year-old twins.
2. The full bath for the kids was HUGE! Lots of counter space for them to spread out all their stuff.
3. The kitchen was perfect. I cooked a meal daily, and I had everything I needed to do so. The condo is close to several big grocery stores (Target, Publix...), so packing groceries with us was unnecessary.
4. The living room is equally spacious. Furniture was comfortable, and we loved having the big dining table for all 6 of us to eat meals together.
5. Walk-in closets everywhere! So much space!
6. We appreciated the little things left by the owner, although not all of them were needed for our family.
Umbrella stroller, rolling cooler, pack-n-play, high chair, nice beach towels to take the the pool, a bunch of Disney Character stuffed toys (which my twins LOVED), laundry basket in each closet, etc.
7. The pool is amazing! Our four kids could have skipped more days at Disney just to spend at the pool. We were surprised at how non-crowded the pool remained during the week (first week in June).
8. This condo is QUIET! The pool is open until 10pm nightly, and we never noticed any outside noise in our condo. We never heard any neighbors to the sides of us or above/below us either. (Maybe the other units were empty? We don't know.)
9. This trip was a Disney vacation for our family, and we were very pleased with the proximity to the parks. Door-to-gate probably took us about 30 minutes each morning.
That includes driving there, parking, the tram to the transportation center, and the Monorail to the front gate.
10. We especially appreciated the keyless entry so we didn't have to worry about keeping track of a key. The entire complex feels very secure.
All-in-all we would definitely recommend this condo to anyone. We have already referred our family and friends, and we'll certainly be back for a repeat visit!
THE PERFECT CONDO
We recently returned from our best Disney vacation to date, thanks in large part to Richie's condo, and the Windsor Hills Resort. The condo is literally 2 miles from the Disney property highway system. So it took us about 12 minutes from parking spot to parking spot at Magic Kingdom, and 10 min for Epcot, Animal Kingdom & Hollywood Studios. We also went to SeaWorld which was about 18 minutes and LEGOLAND which was about 50 minutes. So this condo has LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
In terms of the condo itself, there's no need to bring anything other then a few clothes, sunscreen, and some groceries. We brought way more clothes then we needed, and ended up using the laundry baskets & washer/dryer within the unit several times throughout the week. There was an abundance of beach towels (10+) that we could take down to the pool each day. And there was shelves full of extra bath linens in the master bedroom closet, above and beyond all of the towels in the already well stocked bathrooms. Other items I noticed but didn't use included everything you'd need for an infant, from a high chair to a pack & play, a cooler on wheels to bring cold drinks down to the pool, an iron & ironing board, and more. As I said, this place has everything. And the Kitchen was no different. In addition to the high end finish, including stainless everything, it was as well appointed as your own home. I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there already. One of the things I use nightly at home is a body pillow, and I've NEVER rented a place that had one available, but Richie's condo did. There were several extra pillows in the master bedroom closet, including a body pillow. Well done Richie. There's a flat screen TV in each bedroom, in addition to the one in the family room, and they are all easy to use and of high quality. And there was free WiFi available which we used daily, and which was within range when we sat at the end of the pool just under the condo. So that was very convenient as well.
Ahhhhh, the POOL ... it's AWESOME thanks to its very inviting 85 degrees temperature. And the slide was a HUGE hit with our two daughters ages 5 & 8. My wife loves the water, but always has a complaint when it comes to pools because they are always too cold for her, but not this pool. Lastly, Richie is VERY easy to deal with and I can't recommend his condo more highly.
We booked this condo for a trip to Disney / Universal. The condo was great and the owner was very easy to work with. Condo quality exceeded our expectations, would definitely stay again.
Clean and Comfortable Condo
We enjoyed our stay. The condo was extremely convenient to Disney. We are a large family so we used the well-stocked kitchen. There were even travel coffee mugs!! Comfortable beds. Stroller, travel crib and small ice chest on wheels. WiFi worked great. Pool is fantastic and the kids enjoyed the water slide. We loved the pool view from the condo as well. We highly recommend this condo. The owner, Richie, was easy to contact and answered questions promptly.
Baton Rouge, LA
Chilly weather could have cooled our spirits, but a well-equipped, perfectly located home-away-from-home helped to make this an A+ vacation for my wife and me and two 12-year old grandkids.
Building amenities were super, and I consistently found parking adjacent to the closest, most convenient entrance.
Loved the fact that the on-site store sold "singles" of paper towels, toilet paper and many other items, sparing us the expense of buying in unnecessary bulk.
Windsor Hills staff were tops - friendly and helpful in all regards.
Finally, it was a genuine pleasure dealing with a unit owner who has his act together, to say the least. All communications were immediate, clear and detailed. No surprises or questions left unanswered.
By the end of our stay, it felt like we were working with a friend rather than a landlord - as evidenced by the discovery and return of a phone charger we left behind by accident. Would repeat this stay at any opportunity and have already advised friends and family to do the same.
A home away from home
Our stay during Christmas week was GREAT! Everything was EXACTLY as advertised; minutes away from Disney, spacious condo, great views, comfortable beds, heated pool, and other resort amenities. The condo owner, Richie, was exceptional in the entire process. He was readily available to all inquiries and offered valuable suggestions.
Would proudly recommend this condo to family and friends.
The Rodriguez family
I just wanted to pass along a quick note to let you know that we had a great time on our Disney getaway, including our stay at the condo. I
was very impressed with the unit (layout, location, cleanliness, amenities) and the Windsor Hills facility in general. I should also
note that I was also very impressed with your organization/assistance in advance of our stay and the management of the rental process
itself. The whole experience exceeded my admittedly high expectations and was perfect for our needs. I will certainly look to reserve the
unit again for our next Orlando trip and will highly recommend it to family and friends.
Perfect for our Family
This condo was perfect for our 7 days of 7 area theme parks. It was a welcome place of respite from the busyness of each day. The pool downstairs for the little ones was lovely, and they enjoyed meeting other children who were also visiting the complex. The condo is in excellent condition. The beds were VERY comfortable. All of the amenities from the washer/dryer, kitchen appliances, and bathrooms were in working order. I particularly loved the "timed cook" feature on the stove. I could put a casserole in the oven before we left in the morning, and dinner would be ready when we arrived home in the evening. We very much appreciated the pack 'n play and high chair, as we had our 1 year old nice with us as well. The grocery store was a short drive away, and we either ate in the condo, or packed our food for the parks. We saved a lot of money by doing this.
From my first inquiry to the week of our trip, the owner, Richie, was quite pleasant and communicative. He ensured that all the details of our stay were perfect, and that we had all of the information we could need about the condo complex. I had occasion to interact with someone from the Welcome Center at the complex, and she was very helpful as well.
If we ever return to Orlando, we would most definitely stay at Richie's home away from home again. 5 stars!!
We're in love with the condo!!!
We're back in Brasil.
Just want to say that our vacation was wonderful!! A great part of its success was staying at your condo!
WE'RE IN LOVE WITH YOUR Condo!! It was very well maintained and you have a very nice taste. The condo is well equipped and has a nice atmosphere too.
We're looking forward to stay in it again. Our next trip to Disney will probably be in the beginning of 2015. As soon we have an agenda I will sure make contact with you to book the condo again.
Thank you very much for having us.
Have a nice week!
My Best Regards
Liliana Aquila and family
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your amazing condo with our family last week. Everything was wonderful. My husband, our three children & I stayed at your condo for a Disney vacation. The condo was the perfect size for our family of 5. Everything was super clean (cleaner than some Disney resorts we've stayed at!). There are loads of beautiful towels and lots of extra sheets, blankets and pillows. The kitchen was superbly stocked with everything I needed to cook and serve a couple of family meals. The beds are SUPER comfortable and there is a flat screen TV in every room which was really nice when everyone needed a break from the family vacation! This location is very very close to the Disney world entrance, it only took us a few minutes to get to the parks every day. The pool is right next to the condo building which made it easy for the kids and I to swim during our stay. The whole community is gated and felt very safe. The gardens and landscaping were immaculate. We'll be contacting you for our next Disney trip!
Great place, exactly as advertised
Hi Richie -
Thanks! We had a fantastic stay. Your place was clean, neat, and comfortable. We loved the pool, and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality and type of accessories provided in the condo. We will certainly consider reserving again on next trip to Orlando.
Kindest personal regards,
We are now back in Denmark again and thinking back on a great vacation.
We like to thank you for lending us your condo. The condo fulfilled all our needs and we have no problem recommending the condo to friends and family.
Fantastic Condo at Windsor Hills!
Myself and my family had a wonderful time during our stay at Richie’s condo. We didn't use much of the amenities due to a busy week of trying to cram in all the theme parks (Discovery Cove was amazing), however the children loved the pool and slide & would of rather stayed there all day if given the choice! The condo was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. Windsor hills itself was maintained to a very high standard and is a very safe & secure complex. All the staff from the cleaners, shop staff and staff at the gate were so welcoming and helpful. Richie's communication has been excellent from booking the holiday and his eagerness to please his guests and to ensure they have a great holiday has not gone unnoticed. We had a very prompt return of deposit, accepted with thanks. Can highly recommend this condo & if we are fortunate to return to Florida in the future hope to stay at Richie's condo!
Can't believe our time is just about up here at your place.
WE LOVE IT HERE!!!! My kids were like "Why don't we come here every year?" LOL
It is the perfect home away from home here in FL. Thanks again for blessings us. We needed to be away and renew for a bit.
Port Jefferson, NY
We will definitely return!!
We stayed at Windsor Hills in May 2014. The condo was perfect size for our family (4 adults and 4 children). The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and easy. We loved the view of the pool. It made us really feel like we were on vacation. The resort was clean and accommodations were nice. We enjoyed the pool almost daily. The zero entry was great for our small children. We visited Disney World while there. Within minutes, maybe 5, you are entering WDW! The short commute was great when traveling home from a long day at the park! Working with Richie was easy and he was very helpful and quick to respond if we needed anything. We will definitely return!!
Amazing Condo in the Disney Area!
Our week in Richie's condo was nothing short of amazing! We wanted to be close to the Orlando attractions, but have an area to escape from the crowds. We planned our week to alternate days in the parks with pool days at the resort. Our entire family truly loved the days we just stayed in and enjoyed this beautiful condo with its perfect location of overlooking the huge pool complex! Richie, thank you for being so helpful, accommodating, and friendly throughout our stay. We are definitely planning to stay with you again, and we are recommending your condo to all our friends! 🙂
Great vacation condo for our family!
Staying at this condo was perfect for our family. This trip was for our family to go to Disney and I wasn't quite sure where we wanted to stay. We have not rented a condo like this before and I was a little worried about what we would actually get. After reading tons of positive reviews about this condo and Richie, the owner, we decided it was worth the shot. I must say that the condo and the owner lived up to or exceeded every review and expectation. The condo is in a gated community and that helped us feel more comfortable with the area for our kids. The pool area with the fresh food, gaming area, theater and workout area all right by the condo made it so convenient to go down and relax. In fact our kids, if they could do anything over would want to spend more time at the pool and going down the slide. I felt like we could have just spent the whole vacation at the condo with all the amenities. It was also very nice to be so close to Disney and Orlando. Any questions I had Richie answered right away. If you are thinking of going to Disney or Orlando area I cannot recommend this place enough.
Our Orlando Vacation
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo the week of March 17, 2013, during our Spring Break. Your condo is nicely decorated and very clean. We had plenty of space for our three children and each had their own space to relax after a long day at the parks! We loved having such close access to the pool and club house. We had a great time! We had no problems checking in at the gatehouse. The vicinity of the condo was great as well. Having lots of shopping, restaurants, and mini-golfing in the area was very convenient. We were very close to Disney World and Sea World was less than 10 miles away. If we ever make it back to Orlando, we will definitely stay in your condo again!
Windsor Hills Condo
For a family wishing to stay in the Kissimmee area this condo is ideal. We found that the condo exactly matched the description and photos we found in the listing. The condo was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and the southern exposure overlooking the pool ideal. The Windsor Hills complex is beautifully maintained and is ideally located for visitors to access all the attractions of the area. The local brochures provided for visitors and those in the condo simplify any additional vacation planning the family may need. A safe and secure environment for a family to enjoy their vacation; as an additional bonus there is store by the pool serving hot snacks and cool drinks. Highly recommended!
Wasag Beach, Canada
Great place to stay. Very nice pool.
Theme Park Oasis
We brought our young family to Orlando to visit the Disney theme parks...and this condo was the perfect home base! A very responsive owner, courteous on-site staff, and an awesome pool all made for a great stay. The rooms in the condo are comfortably and tastefully decorated, the kitchen had what we needed to cook meals, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. It was a fantastic place to stay with small children and when we return to the area we'll definitely stay here again!
Wonderful trip to Disney
We stayed at the Windsor Hills Pool view condo the week of 01/26/2013......it was Wonderful! The condo was in a perfect spot. It was close to Disney and nearby resurtants and the pool was just outside. There were six of us that stayed here, four adults and two children. There was plenty of room for all. The layout of the rooms was perfect. Overall this was a great place to stay. We would definitely stay here again.
Byron Center, MI
Absolutely Wonderful! If available, book this condo -- best locatation! 100% satisfied!
"Wonderful" just barely begins to describe this condo.
Everything was exactly as illustrated - EXACTLY! There were no surprises.
The location is superb - just past the gates (it's in a gated community) and overlooking the pool. There are (sort of) 2 master bedrooms - although one is the official master, they could both pass as the master and the best part about it is they are on separate wings to the condo. My husband and I stayed with our children (ages 4 & 7) and in-laws. There was ample room for all of us.
I especially liked that we took the room closer to the door so we could come in later and leave earlier, without disturbing anyone. It was perfect.
The pool is very nice - we enjoyed it daily and the amenities (local sultry shop, fitness center - just to name the few that we used) were great. Dealing with Richie was an absolute pleasure and he is 100% honest.
Seriously, if you are doubting the reviews because if they are "too good to be true" -- this is the case that it is indeed that good. At first I was a little concerned about the great reviews (I know, dumb right ...) but really here I am without a bad word to say.
We would definitely return and we would definitely recommend to friends/family. If you are reading this then you are likely interested -- just book it. You won't find better. It's been a few months since we left (my bad) but I was just cleaning my inbox and thought I really want others to be as happy as we were so I am giving my 2 cents.
We stayed for a week, did Disney and all the other hoopla then went on a cruise for a week. Not much else to say except ENJOY YOUR STAY!
This condo is fabulous. Thanks Richie!
Candice & Jeff Holden Piush
Orlando Trip 2012
We loved every minute of our week in Orlando. The parks that we visited were wonderful but we also enjoyed our time in your condo. It was so nice to relax by the pool or sit on the balcony overlooking the pool. This was our second time staying in your condo and enjoyed it as much as the first time. The process of renting the condo and the arrival is very easy and you are a pleasure to deal with. We look forward to renting from you again and will recommend your condo to others. Thanks for sharing your condo with us a second time.
The condo exceeded our expectations. It is perfectly equipped, beautiful decorated, excellent view and very comfortable. We had a terrific time. I truly recommend it!
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Great location in development and in area
We had a great time staying here in Orlando. Very close to the parks which was fantastic. We spent very little time in transit. The unit is perfectly located in the development as the picture implies. We could watch the kids at the pool from the deck. Our concerns about noise from the pool were laid to rest by the firm policy about noise late in the evening and found it to be no problem at all. It is very close to many eating and shopping opportunities and in the delivery radius of Flippers Pizza which was great for us. We really enjoyed our stay.
St. Joseph, Missouri
Pictures Don't Do It Justice
We stayed in this condo last month and were pleased to find that the unit was even nicer than the photos. This owner was very thoughtful to the point where he had coolers, stroller, Disney stuffed animals for the kids to play with and even swimming diapers for the pool. I was going to book it for my birthday this month but it was already reserved. It is less than one mile from the highway that takes you right into the Magic Kingdom and anything you want is a stone's throw away. The owner is a pleasure to work with and makes it quite obvious that he truly wishes to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We will definitely be staying there again
We couldn't have asked for better. The owner was more than helpful and answered every question quickly and in detail. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. We did 6 parks in 5 days and we all enjoyed each one - Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, LEGOLAND and Hollywood Studios - in that order. We had breakfast at the condo and ate lunch and dinner at the parks. The listing and photos were accurate and the condo was clean & well-maintained. If I am ever back in the area, I will definitely look into booking the same place again.
West Caldwell, New Jersey
Outstanding Holiday Destination for all things Disney
We stayed at the Pool View Condo for 2 weeks. We stayed with our 3 kids (12, 10 and 6) and all of their needs were catered for within the complex - games room, basketball court, pool etc. The apartment is well appointed and stocked for those who want to self-cater and sufficiently near to supermarkets for this purpose. Restaurants are a very short drive away if you want to eat out. The complex is a matter of minutes from the Disney Parks but the apartment costs a fraction of the amount you would pay if staying within Disney. The rooms are large and well equpped. The beds are very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windsor Hills and would definitely return again in years to come.
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. We felt very much at home. The property is very nicely decorated. The photos on the web site accurately reflect the appearance of the condo and the amenities. The property was very clean and well maintained. The pool and the clubhouse are only a few footsteps from the condo. Richie, the owner, was very helpful with making the arrangements to stay there. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby along with many attractions. We plan to use this condo as our home away from home the next time we visit the Orlando area.
This is the place to stay!!!
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the pool view condo. Richie was extremely helpful and made everything so easy from the reservation, check in to check out. Thank you so much Richie!! I will definitely contact you again when my family and I travel back to Orlando for our Disney vacations. This is the only place we will stay when we go back!! We were not disappointed. The view of the pool was exactly as the pictures show. The condo was very clean and well maintained and is in a very convenient location with grocery, restaurants, shopping, and the Disney Parks just minutes away. Thank you again Richie!!!
Windsor Hills Pool View Condo
Our family loved the condo.
It was spacious and clean and very well stocked. The kitchen had more gadgets than I have at home.
The internet service was great. The beds were very comfortable. The pack & play and high chair were great to have for my granddaughter, she loved the bag of toys she found in the closet.
The location is great, centrally located close to all the attractions. The security was great at the resort. The grounds were beautiful, great pool and the outside hot tub was great after a long day at the amusement parks.
Thanks to Richie the condo owner for making it easy to book.
Roan Mountain, TN.
Beautiful Condo...Would Definitely Stay Again!
On our most recent trip to Orlando, we stayed at this beautiful condo in Windsor Hills. As the pictures on the website show, the condo is well maintained, beautifully decorated and has a great view of the pool. Also, you couldn't be closer to the entrance of the pool which was very convenient. All the furnishings were updated and very comfortable. We also loved the touches of Mickey throughout the condo. Although it says so on the website, we were amazed by all the flat screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms. Windsor Hills has great amenities and offers lots of activities. One of the days we were there, they had a person from Gatorland come in to do a one hour demonstration on snakes, gators and other creatures. Lots of fun! We were there primarily to visit Disney World, which is only about a 10 minute drive. There are tons of restaurants and a few grocery stores and other shopping in the area. The owner was a joy to work with in getting our vacation plans set up. He provided receipts promptly as we paid our deposits and balance and was always in communication with us. My family really enjoyed staying here and we would definitely stay again if we go to Orlando.
Cherry Hill, New Jersey
Family Disney Trip
We love going to Disney and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windsor Hills. The condo was very clean and nice. Everything was just as advertised. The balcony looks over the pool and the unit is very close to the club house. We were very satisfied with our stay. The owner is very quick to respond to email questions and was very helpful. Thanks for a great week. Summer 2012
Pool View Condo Exceeded Expectations
Our family of 7 (2 adults, 2 teens, 2 kids, 1 infant) stayed at Windsor Hills Pool View Condo in January of 2012. The accommodations were a perfect fit for our family. We had more than enough room for our baby in the master bedroom and the other king room was very spacious as well. It would be perfect for anyone taking another couple or grandparents. There was a fold out couch that we didn't use, but it would have still been comfortable living quarters. The dining table seated us all comfortably. The close access to the heated pool and hot-tub was also wonderful. This is a large gated community and being walking distance to the pool makes a big difference. The kids loved the slide. I've stayed in the area to visit Disney World before and this was the best experience I've had. There is no check-in process other than to register your car at the gate. You choose a pin number to access your door which was perfect for teens letting themselves in. No key worries. An inexpensive grocery store (Publix) is very close and Disney World is less than 10 minutes away. We used the kitchen quite a bit and found cooking utensils adequate. The washer and dryer were lifesavers. We were able to pack very light for the flight and wash clothing I appreciated the details that made our stay nice. Trash was picked up right outside the door. There were plenty of baby items like a high chair, umbrella stroller, pack n play, soft sided cooler, pool toys, and sand toys. There were Disney themed pictures in the kid's room and bathroom as well as Disney stuffed animals on the beds. We also did not see any roaches the whole time which is huge for me. There was an elevator two doors down the hall that we used every day with our stroller. I was worried about it being far but it was very close. I was amazed by the good price of the condo. We got a great price online but then the owner contacted us letting us know there was a sale going on and it reduced the cost of our stay even more. I thought that was just wonderful of him. The only negative about the experience for us was that there was sometimes a wait at the entrance gate to let people in. The security person checked each car as they entered the community so that could take a while right after the parks let out. We plan on staying there again the next time we visit Disney World!
Cedar Park, Texas
Great condo near Disney
This was a lovely comfortable & clean condo to stay in when visiting Disney World. The owner was wonderful to deal with - so helpful. The condo was a very nice size, with comfortable, newer furniture, as well as large closets & bathrooms. The kitchen was also well stocked. The pool area was beautiful and a delight to sit near, after a hot day at Disney. We also really liked to sit on the lanai at the end of the day, enjoying the view & cool breezes. Windsor Hills (gated community) is close to a main artery with lots of restaurants & stores. Within 10 minutes we could be at one of the Disney Parks. Perfect location and lovely condo. Could not ask for more.

Excellent Place to Stay
My family and I were looking for a great place to stay on our trip to Disney World. We wanted the amenities of home while still having an affordable place to stay and one that was convenient to the parks. Fortunately, we discovered Richie's condominium at Windsor Hills and must say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is spacious, clean, and has super easy access to the clubhouse and pool (phenomenal pool by the way!!!). In addition, this condominium is very convenient to the entrance of Windsor Hills. Best of all, the Disney Parks are within a five to fifteen minute drive depending upon which park you attend. Richie is a super person to deal with. He treats his guests with the utmost courtesy and professionalism, and truly wants you to feel "At Home" during your stay. Thank you so much Richie for a wonderful place to stay, that helped make our Disney vacation one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences our family has ever had.
Pool view condo - highly recommended
We are from the United Kingdom and stayed for 3 weeks at Richie's Pool View Condo in March 2012. From our very first communication with Richie we have had excellent service. The condo has everything we could want. This was our 2nd stay at Windsor Hills Condos and we are planning to go back again. It is very convenient for Walt Disney World. We also visited Clearwater and LEGOLAND Florida. The condo was immaculately clean. Thank you Richie for sharing your home.
West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I cannot thank you enough for letting us rent your condo in Florida! We had a wonderful vacation - your condo was extremely clean, supplied the things we needed, and was very comfortable to live in for the week. I cannot tell you how nervous I was booking through someone that I didn't know. You were very prompt, courteous and professional in dealing with the arrangements that were necessary to plan this trip. You were very helpful and responded so quickly to any question I had about the process to complete the rental. The website about your condo had so much wonderful information about the condo/resort and the area around the resort - I appreciated all of the work you put into preparing this for your renters.
The view from the condo was a treat - the pool and grounds of the resort were very nice to view when waking each morning. The condo has very tasteful decorations that are arranged beautifully by the management that cleans between visitors. They even make the towels animals in the bathrooms like we have seen on a cruise. We felt very spoiled. The beds were so comfortable to sleep on. It was wonderful having TVs and DVDs in every room. We had to contact Paula once during the week and she helped with the issue promptly. I had started the dishwasher and it responds a little differently than mine at home (I didn't want to operate it incorrectly). They helped out with that and they also called to make sure we arrived and had settled in the day after we got there. It was very nice - they were very pleasant and professional to deal with also.
Your directions for checking out were very clear and everything went very well. The checkout part of the process went well.
I would highly recommend this condo to anyone that is traveling in the area. It was awesome to have a "home" away from home. It was priced well and was better than our expectations in every areas. All we had to do was "move in", purchase some groceries we needed and enjoy the week. What more could I have asked for! It was great - thanks so much Richie for making this week wonderful!
I hope to use this condo again in the future - I will recommend it to anyone that is willing to listen to our vacation story 🙂
Thanks so much,
Sterling Heights, Michigan
We had a wonderful time in Orlando and at your condo. Our best vacation ever ;o)
It was a pleasure talking to you, you are so nice to talk to.
Hope we get another chance to come to your condo,
Jóhanna and Axel
Thank you for allowing my family to rent your beautiful condo. The condo was so spacious and had all of the comforts of home. We arrived to find everything clean and ready for our vacation to begin. It was wonderful starting out the day with hot air balloons gliding by and looking at that dazzling Florida sunshine from the balcony.
Our boys (two in college and one in high school) enjoyed the swimming pool, ping pong, PlayStation and having enough TV's for everyone!
We had the best vacation and we're already planning on when we can do it all again. I've told our friends and family that if they plan on going to Orlando to definitely inquire about staying at your lovely condo! Thank you so much!
Can't believe how nice it was!
We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. We had plenty of room for our family to spread out and be comfortable. The condo had all of the comforts of home, plenty of pots, pans, dishes, and silverware. The furnishings were so nice. The beds were comfortable...no problem sleeping. The pool and waterslide were fantastic. We were within minutes of Disney which was great because we like to stay at the parks until they close. The rental process was easy hassle free. We had such a great vacation, my kids asked if we could stay here every spring break. You can't ask for more than that.
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for letting us use your beautiful condo. I hope we left everything as we found it.
We had a great time and it helped having such a beautiful home to come home to. The location was fab. So close to all the parks.
Jacob loved the pool and wanted to be in it every day.
Thanks for all your help with the booking and answering all my questions. The booking process was so easy and efficient.
We have some wonderful memories.
Thanks again. My husband and son are already planning their next visit and be sure we will be in touch.
Debbie, Adam and Jacob Wear
We just arrived home. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful condo. We had a great time. We loved the space your condo provided as well as the magnificent pool views.
It's all about location location location and your condo was in the best location. Close to the theme parks and the outlet shopping malls. We really enjoyed our time there.
I have no hesitation recommending your condo to any of my friends that ask. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
If we are ever back in Orlando I will be in touch again to stay at your wonderful condo.
Thanks once again.
We are having a fantastic time here in Orlando at your lovely condo !!
Everything is better than expected, even the weather!!!
Thanks again for your kind assistance!!!
Buenos Aires, Argentina
I have to tell you how much we loved the upgrades in the condo. The granite, the king sized bed, the flat screen....we loved it all. Your place is truly heaven and will always be our home away from home.
We had friends join us at Windsor Hills while we were there. They rented other units in the complex and I have to say your place is truly superior to anything I saw.
All is well here except its getting cold and the leaves are almost all fallen off the trees.
My mom sends her love from Arizona and wanted me to thank you once again on her behalf for having such a beautiful place for all of us to visit. Like I said, we think of it as our home away from home and we look forward to returning sooner than later.
All our best.

Pool View Condo Exceeded Expectations
My family stayed in the Pool View Condo in September, 2010 and absolutely loved it! It provided all the conveniences of home. The amenities and pool was exceptional. The condo location to all the parks was unbelievably close and convenient. It was very obvious that the owner, Richie, wanted his guests to feel at home during their stay. This was evident by the quality of the mattresses/beds that were provided at the condo. My family slept better at the condo than we do at home! We did 5 parks in 5 days and fully expected to be worn out at the end of the 5 days, but due to the wonderful night’s sleep received every nite felt great. My mom, who suffers with lower back and hip pain while sleeping at night, did not experience any pain. She was so impressed with how well the mattresses slept I had to call and find out what type of mattresses Richie had. She plans on purchasing the same type mattress. If you are looking for an inexpensive but exceptional place to stay I would highly recommend this Pool View Condo.
Thanks again, I'm sure you will be hearing from us again in the future.
Richie's condo is a great place to stay
Windsor Hills and Richie's condo is a great place to stay when in the Disney area. Close to all the parks and no need to leave the resort as the pool is a great spot to relax.
We are vacationing in your condo, it is beautiful. Thanks so much for all your help. We plan on having a wonderful vacation. Thanks again
West Caldwell, NJ
Thank you for letting us use your condo this week. We all loved it. My wife's first response was that she would stay there again, and that after only being there 5 minutes. My kids felt at home and often would say they wanted to go "home" after a long day at Disney. We loved being so close to Disney and the pool. We liked the care that was taken by staff with the pool.
Thank you so much for letting us use your home

What a beautiful condo! God bless. The kids want one. They loved it.
I remain impressed with the resort and the security. All my family enjoyed it. The kids…OH! Loved the game room and the pool. They want to go again soon. Thanks for all your kindness and attention. Your property manager called us when we arrived and when we were to leave to see if everything was ok. OH!

We were very happy we could stay at your lovely condo at Windsor Hills Resort (7th of May - 21st of May). We felt very safe and happy at the resort.
And your condo is very big with a spectacular view! Our son loved the plates and still talks about it at home 🙂
And we also loved the big pool. Your condo is close to all the theme parks and close to all the stores. Our son doesn't like driving around in the car.
So we were very happy that all theme parks were around your condo.
My mother was very happy that the building had an elevator!!!
And thank you so much for answering all my e-mails (and you got many mails from me).
Thanks for everything, we had a really great vacation and we hope to visit some day!!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your condo at Windsor Hills. This was the first time we have gone to Disney without staying on property and I have to tell you, it was so much better than we expected!! The amount of flexibility you have by staying outside of Disney, but so close was great. We were able to do everything we wanted at Disney, but also enjoy many of the other activities in Orlando. We went to Universal, shopped, played mini-golf, and ate at so many different restaurants.........it was wonderful!
The condo was everything you put on the website and more. The layout is spacious with a real "home" feel to it. You have gone out of your way to make sure the unit has all of the amenities you could hope for. Other than some food shopping, we didn't need anything else. From the kitchen to the pool toys, you have it covered. Guests coming in can feel comfortable that "everything" is included!!
I have to tell you, I was so impressed, I wished we would have thought of buying a unit years ago!! Thank you once again and we'll be looking forward to our next stay with you.
Long Island, NY
Thank you VERY much for the use of your condo.
Everything was great and we had a WONDERFUL time.
Loved the condo. It had plenty of room for our family to relax and visit when we were there.
The kids loved the pool and the hours to swim were perfect.
The distance from the condo to the Disney parking lots was about 15 minutes which was really nice.
We are already looking forward to our next trip and hope to return in the future!
Thanks again Richie
Just a quick note to thank you for a wonderful week at your beautifully furnished and very well equipped lovely Windsor Hills condo. You really have thought of everything to make your renters comfortable, and your homes proximity to the Disney parks was such a bonus. The condo looks great with its freshly painted walls, and the colors are very warm and soothing. The kids enjoyed the heated pool and Jacuzzi every night despite the chilly air. On our final morning when I went to wake my kids, they were both sleeping in the king bed with your entire collection of Disney stuffed animals surrounding them...quite a picture!
I hope we have the pleasure of renting your home again.
Richie, Richie, RICHIE!
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that we absolutely LOVED staying at your family's condo 12/17-22. It was a wonderful home-away-from-home and enhanced our vacation. We respected your property and truly cared for it as if it was our own! We will definitely rent this condo from you again on future trips, if available.
We've stayed at other condos in the area, but yours was the BEST, by far. We appreciated that you had plenty of dishes, flatware, bake ware & the spice rack was a nice bonus 🙂
Check-in was seamless. Your written welcome packet was very clear and thorough. That was MUCH appreciated! We didn't have a chance to use the pool as the weather wasn't as cooperative as we would've hoped but that didn't deter us from enjoying your property!
Michele McLachlan & family
I realized today that I never emailed an 'official' thank you for our fabulous stay at your condo! When did I realize it?? When all of my family was sitting around today talking about how we are all so ready to go back and stay there again!!
Your accommodations were absolutely perfect. You know that I was a little hesitant at first renting from someone we did not know, but you made me feel completely at ease about it from the start.
The condo was clean, had plenty of room and had everything we needed to enjoy our week stay. We travelled with a small child and I was a little anxious about the pack-n-play and high chair, but it all was just perfect (and he loved all the Disney characters who greeted him when he walked in!)
My parents slept in the master and wished they could have taken the bed and shower back to Texas with them!
Most importantly, you were so helpful along the way, going above and beyond to provide me answers to all my questions. I know for sure we will be heading back to your condo in the near future.
Thank you for everything,
The Bahn/ Marquardt family
We just wanted to thank you for being so great during the booking of your condo. I have to say that we LOVED your place and hope to rent again soon if you have availability. What a great location too! It was very homey and comfortable, had everything that we could need and more. We had a super vacation!!Thanks again & keep us posted if you happen to have any more specials!!
Jessica Zelen & Family
I have been meaning to send you an email since we've got back. My family and I had a spectacular time in Florida, and a large part of that was due to the condo! It was absolutely beautiful!! The location of it could not have been better as well. We would all really like to thank you for such a wonderful place to stay at while we were in Florida!!! We will definitely be choosing your condo again on our next visit (hopefully sooner than later.) Also just wanted to say the beds were amazingly comfortable! I haven't slept that well in a long time!
I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at your condo. We absolutely picked the perfect unit to rent. It was everything one could want in a vacation property. I've been back to work for 2 days and keep wishing I was back in Orlando -- even if the heat index hit 110 one of the days we were there! My sister joined us. It was nice for her to have her own space. I never would have invited her if we were in a traditional hotel room.
The whole process, from reservation to check-in, was far easier than I thought it would be.
Rosemarie from upstate New York
We had a great time at your condo last week....and you're right, the best location.....view from the condo & proximity to the pool!
We all had fun at the Disney parks - overall a very relaxing vacation!
I just wanted to send a quick email and let you know that we absolutely loved your condo and had a fantastic time! Thanks so much for opening up your home to families like ours. It was just perfect! We loved how accommodating it was.
We purchased a little stroller while we were there and used it at all the parks and added it to the collection of baby items that you already have when we left. Just wanted to let you know. My boys loved playing with all the pool toys that were in the condo!
Again, everything was wonderful!
I brought two employees and a friend down ... We had a conference to attend. We loved the accommodations. I can’t think of anything that would have made our stay more pleasurable.
The accommodations were fantastic, the view great and the grounds beautiful. I think I convinced one of them that staying in a $175 night hotel is a waste when you can stay for less in such a wonderful place. It was extremely convenient when accessing the parks. We went several days and did not have to leave so early b/c of the proximity. Thanks for working with me and providing such a great place to stay. I have to return to Orlando in mid-may for a conference with my software vendor and am thinking of bringing the kids down. I would love to return to this condo for accommodations.
Thanks again for everything...
I did want to let you know that we really, really enjoyed our stay at your condo. I hope that we will be able to come visit again this year. My kids had a blast and they loved the pool! They still talk about our vacation. We came to your condo for my oldest daughter’s birthday and now my 4 year old wants to go back for his birthday. It was so much nicer being in a condo rather than a hotel. The condo was extremely comfortable, affordable and convenient. Thank you so much for allowing us to visit!! We'll be in touch!
When looking for Accommodations at any holiday destination it can be cumbersome, overwhelming and frustrating. My concerns were location, size and amenities, let alone the fact that I was booking in high season, Christmas holidays, at the last minute.
Well I lucked out Big Time. Not only did we have the location that was easy access and a short drive to Disney World the condo was very roomy and spacious for our family of 4. Both my kids had their own rooms and our master suite had a private en suite. It was great for us if we just wanted to hang out and cook our own meals or stay in and not go to any of the attractions.
The amenities were excellent. The kids enjoyed the pool, water slides, the movie theater room on site and the game room. The complex is well designed and my husband and I enjoyed morning runs and then a work out in the gym.
We had a great holiday and would like to thank Richie for accommodating our dates on such short notice. I will recommend you to my friends for future stays.
British Columbia, Canada
Sorry, I thought I had sent you a thank you for our lovely stay. I must have drafted the e-mail without hitting the send button. We had a very nice stay and loved the location and amenities of your condo. Our kids particularly loved being so close to the pool and the PlayStation. We’ll definitely recommend your place to friends and family traveling to Orlando!
We just arrived back from Florida this morning to 1 degree Celsius weather! Anyway, we did have a great time at the condo. I wish we had more time to enjoy it. It was great to have the room to unwind after a busy day at Disney (we are used to cramming the 6 of us in one hotel room.) It is a beautiful condo and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We'll pass it on to all our friends. Thanks so much.
Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
I wanted to 'thank you' for our stay in your condo. It is a lovely condo in a wonderful resort. We very much felt 'at home' with lots of amenities and my daughter really liked the Disney characters in the bedroom. The swimming pool was a hit with my kids - - my youngest who is 4 years old had a great time in the shallow part of the pool. We look forward to visiting your condo again in the future.
Warm regards, David and Marie
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Let me tell you that we had a great time in your condo. It is neat, very nice and your kitchen is beautiful. It has everything that one needs to cook, which I enjoyed very much. I love the location on the complex and in Kissimmee. It is perfect for people that have plans for the parks. My kids really love the pool and the club house. I have no words for the furniture, it is really comfortable especially the master bedroom. Very nice. I also wanted to tell you that at Windsor Hills the people are very nice. They help a lot in everything that we needed. My little girl loved the kid’s bedroom with all the Disney furs, Mickey, Mini, Goofy etc. NICE.
I want to thank you for your hospitality and I hope to come back there in the future.
Thanks and keep in contact.
Mauricio Vasconez and Family
I just wanted to write and thank you for letting us share your wonderful home! We loved everything about your place and Windsor Hills. The pool was great and it was so nice to be in the building right next to it. Your condo had every amenity. The bed in the master bedroom was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on and the ceiling fan in the bedroom was a nice touch. My son enjoyed the PlayStation 2 and both kids loved the Disney stuffed characters in their room. The plastic dishes for the kids and the play toys for the pool were great also. We loved having the washer and dryer and the plush pool towels so we didn't need to pack as much. You were also wonderful to deal with answering every question I had. We will definitely stay at your place again when we come back to Orlando in the future. Please feel free to give out my email address to anyone needing a reference or with any questions. Thanks again!
I just want to say thank you so much for a great time. The kids had a blast in the pool and loved watching movies in the theatre. The adults had a great time too and we will be contacting you for next year. The drinks were cold and the view was spectacular.
Thanks again and talk too you soon.
The Quercia family
We had high expectation about our vacation to Windsor Hills and all our expectations were met and exceeded. The accommodations were perfect and the view was outstanding. Thanks for letting us rent the use of your condo for our vacation.
Thank you so much for providing a wonderful place to stay near Disney. The condo was wonderful. It is so large and clean with a great location. We loved it!!! It was much more pleasant than staying on Disney and more convenient too. My mom also enjoyed it.
Little River, South Carolina
My family had a great time at your condo! The kids loved the pool, and being only minutes to Disney was an added plus. It was so nice to be able to come "home" after a day out, rather than being confined to a hotel room. I can't thank you enough for making this entire process so easy. You were always quick to respond to my e-mail and offered some very helpful advice in planning our trip.
I will recommend you to anyone I know planning to visit Orlando and will hopefully have the opportunity to do business with you in the future.
Thank you, again.
Happy New Year Richie and Family,
I just wanted to send a quick thank you for all you've done to help our family plan our dream holiday in Orlando. Your condo was awesome and exactly what a family our size (4 adults and 2 children) needed. The kids loved the pool and Movie Theater as well as all the Disney characters that greeted in their room. We loved sitting out on the lanai in the morning sipping our coffee and tea and being able to relax in the Jacuzzi after a long day on our feet.
This condo is laid out perfectly. It's spacious and very comfortable not to mention was fully stocked with EVERYTHING we needed (even a crock pot). It was nice to be able to put in some chicken and ribs before leaving in the morning and having a fully cooked meal ready for us when we returned.
A suite half this size was going for over $700 a night at the Disney Resorts and with Disney being literally a five minute drive away we really couldn't have asked for more.
Most of all it was wonderful getting to know you throughout this process. You took us through every step needed and answered each and every question we had. You really helped make our vacation planning easy and I will gladly recommend your condo to everyone I know. Furthermore, we will definitely be back.
This place is turn key ready and the owner is the nicest guy you could ever meet!
All the best from our family to yours.
Michelle, Louise, Jeff, Mike, Mackenzie & Courtney
We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. There was enough space for our whole family who could retreat to their own bedrooms. The pool, slide and hot tub were gorgeous and we used them every day. The view from your condo is what sold me on choosing your place to stay in. I couldn’t wait until morning to open up the blinds. The condo was also very well equipped with everything that we could possibly need. Windsor Hills is just a short drive from all of the Disney theme parks. We would definitely recommend your condo as a place to stay when in Orlando to our friends and relatives. We would also like to come back for another stay.
With many thanks,
The Mitchell Family,
Whitby Ontario, Canada
Well we are back from our wonderful trip to Florida...and already wishing that we were back there! We came home to 30 and 40 degree temperatures… ouch!!! Your condo just made our trip so perfect! It is beautiful and Windsor Hills is so beautiful! We loved the pool and the kids enjoyed playing ping pong, pool, and walking to the basketball courts for a quick game. I loved that it was all within 5 minutes of Disney. We could go and do all of the Disney stuff and then come back and truly relax and feel on vacation in your condo and that beautiful pool! I can understand why you love it so! My husband is a Civil Engineer and is always so busy and this was just a perfect way for him to unwind! Thank you so much! Also, I loved the keypad entry; it was nice not to have to worry about keeping track of keys!
Thank you for having such a beautiful condo! It was a trip that my family will remember forever!
Just a quick thank you for letting us use your SUPERB Windsor Hills Pool Condo in October. We really did think this was the best Florida holiday that we have ever had. Your condo is beautiful and I believe that we left it the way we found it. It was perfect when we arrived and we have absolutely no negative comments at all. Both our daughter and her friend thoroughly enjoyed the pool and we thought it great that we could keep an eye on them whilst they were there. We would recommend yourself, your condo and your letting company to anyone. We could have happily moved into a condo such as yours and lived there forever. It is simply fantastic. We will be dropping you a line next year and hoping that you have availability and will accept us again.
Very best wishes.

The condo was absolutely fabulous! I'm always a little apprehensive when renting
a condo online, wondering about things like: were the pictures on the website actually taken at the condo I'll be renting? Is it clean? Are there plastic cups that we can take to the pool? Blow dryer? Will I be able to figure out the internet access? Are the beds lumpy and outdated? Is the condo in a secure area? etc. etc. I wasted my time worrying about ANY of those things. Everything was perfect! I've never seen such a well-stocked kitchen and the beds were heavenly, especially after a long day at one of the parks. My favorite time of each day, though, came in the evenings when we could sit out on the balcony with a couple of frosty drinks and enjoy the pool view.
Thanks for a great stay and I'll definitely be in touch the next time we're headed to Orlando.
I just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay, your condo is wonderful, very comfortable and we liked it so much I will pass it on to anyone I know going to Orlando. My wife loved it from the minute she walked in. The king sized bed was very comfy! We bought and left for you a beach chair, bucket & shovel and beach umbrella we used at cocoa beach. Please keep it as a token of our appreciation for your last minute reservation.
Thanks again, we really loved our stay and your condo!

I'm sorry it has taken so long BUT thank you thank you thank you...we had a truly great holiday at your villa. It was perfect for our family. My boys loved the pool and the games room. My daughter loved being able to swim anytime and my husband was just happy because we were all happy.
I cannot recommend you highly enough. I have one huge disappointment that I must just talk about. I wanted to book with you again this year in August but I see you already have a booking!! Never mind. I will survive!!
Take care Richie and once again
Nikki and Tim, Devon
We simply loved the condo! I actually couldn't wait to send you a note commending on how lovely it was. When we walked in we all said "WOW"! Having stayed in other places, this was an excellent choice for us. It was very, very clean, which is so important (at least to me, the mom). Everything was as stated on your web site, and we felt very much at home there. I was in awe of the dining room table as well.. too pretty to eat at, but we did. Having the washer & dryer in the room was truly a help. The kids so enjoyed the pool, and slide. We would highly recommend this condo to any of our friends, family, and anyone else on the Dishboards, which we belong to. Windsor Hills is also in a very accommodating location, everything is very close, especially Disney.
Thank for a lovely stay!
Joe & Antoinette Carpentier
I just wanted to thank you for all your contact before we left for our holiday. This had really put our minds at rest. We arrived to a beautiful condo with stunning views of the pool area, just as it shows on your website. The condo was perfect for my family and in fact the pictures don't do it justice. It was spacious, clean and really well equipped. Everything we needed for a perfect holiday. We traveled with 2 other families and unfortunately they were not as lucky as us. I had booked in advance and you kept in contact with me the whole time. Thank you for everything. We would not hesitate to book again.
Thanks for renting us your condo. We had a wonderful time. We'd love to stay there again if we're ever back in Florida. We definitely will recommend it to our friends.
Leon and Lori
Our family so enjoyed our time at your condo. Our primary purpose for coming was to take our five-year-old to Disney for the first time. We also had our nine-month old along and therefore needed accommodations that would be suitable for a baby as well. I spent several hours online searching the many offerings in the Orlando area and decided on your condo for several reasons, including:
1. Location - The complex itself is conveniently located near the things we wanted to see. Also, your particular unit is so close to the pool, clubhouse and front of the complex that it made for easy swimming trips (which we managed to squeeze in at some point every day) and entry/exit to our destinations.
2. Furnishings - Locating a condo that could accommodate a baby for a week was important. The high chair was brand new and fully functional, as was the pack-and-play already furnished in the condo. Had I selected another unit that didn't offer these items, I would have been forced to rent them for $80-$100 for the week. Also, we really appreciated the upgraded furniture, including a queen and a king sized bed. Our family has stayed in dozens of rental condos over the years and found yours to be the most well-furnished and equipped. We also found the free internet access and long distance to be extremely helpful.
3. Communication with You - Getting on the internet and choosing a place to stay can be risky and impersonal. Your willingness to answer questions and be involved throughout our stay was priceless. It alleviated all my concerns and made our family feel comfortable and welcome in your condo.
Again, thank you so much for investing your time and resources into making your condo stand so far above the rest. Our family had a wonderful visit and made many lasting memories.
Well we've arrived home in England today - we hated to leave Florida! We are so pleased that we made the decision to book our stay at your beautiful condo - it could not have been better. The condo had everything we needed or desired to make our stay comfortable, happy and luxurious. The setting was great and we all enjoyed using the lovely pool. We really cannot think of a single thing you could add to the condo to improve the experience of your guests, as it truly had everything anyone could need - you thought of everything! We even loved the huge washer and dryer - a little sad we know, but if you experience the half sized machines we have in the UK then you'd know what we mean!!
The entire experience from the very first contact with yourself to make our booking, through your helpful and informative emails to us, to the stay itself was a complete pleasure and we would definitely book with you again the next time we are fortunate enough to spend our vacation in Florida.
Thank you so much for all your kindness, we hope to be able to stay at the lovely condo again soon. With our very best wishes to you and your family
Andrew, Jackie, Thomas and Sophie Chisholm
To say I worried needlessly before we arrived would be an understatement. Being in my sixties and not an internet savvy "gramma" I took a chance on your integrity ...and it paid off...Thank You. Your condo was everything I had hoped for, super clean, nicely furnished, room for everyone, every appliance and then some, a great location near a beautiful pool and clubhouse, friendly staff and grounds keepers and close to Disney.....I could not have chosen better.....I forgot to mention the hot air balloons rising every morning in the distance and the grandchildren counting them to see how many there would be each day.....We were very comfortable there...........
Thank You Again
I wanted to let you know what a great time we had at your condo. There was plenty of room for all of us and it was nice to have a place to call "home" while we were away. Our vacation was wonderful. Everything we hoped it would be and more. Again, we had a wonderful time. The condo is beautiful and we will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
We just returned home from a wonderful stay at your place. My plan was to sit pool-side and read which is exactly what we did! I read 4 books! The weather was awesome. Your place was perfect! It was clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the patio overlooking the pool and were very pleased to be so close to the pool. We used the gym every day and the kids enjoyed the theater and playing pool. I will certainly consider another stay at your place and will recommend your place to friends!!
I wanted to drop you a note to let you know we LOVED your place! This was the first time I have taken my children to Disney and I wanted everything to be perfect. Plus, we were traveling with another family who always stays inside Disney. So, I was a little apprehensive about everyone's reaction to the condo. I wish I had a camera when we walked in the door - their reactions were priceless. We had one 'down-day' and everyone agreed that we didn't want to leave the complex - we swam and lounged by the pool. The little store was great for the kids to get ice-creams and the gym was wonderful for me to burn off the ice-creams.
We're already talking about returning next March and would definitely like to stay at your place again. We've talked about the condo so much, we have more friends that want to come with us next time.
Please let me know when you have your March 2008 calendar available.
My family and I had a wonderful time at your condo, from checking in late night at 2am – checking out a week later we had a great experience all around. The condo was very clean and conveniently located close to the pool and the exit of the complex. The surrounding area was great and we had an excellent selection of restaurants and Pubs, not to mention a great golf course pretty much in complexes backyard. Also, Disney is short 5 minute ride away and Sea World is only 15 minutes away. There were plenty of towels for the pool and the pool itself was awesome. All in all I don’t have anything that was negative and had a great experience and would definitely rent from you again when staying in the Orlando Disney area. Thanks so much we all had a great time!!
We are back from out trip to Florida and let me start by saying we had a lovely time at your condo. It was just great. It is so nicely decorated and the proximity to the pool and the views from the unit are awesome. I couldn't imagine staying in one of the other buildings overlooking the parking lot. As you were already aware, my parents joined us on this vacation (for the first time) and they could not stop gushing about the place. It’s beautiful... gated community... location... the pool is gorgeous... the gardens, wow!! Great place... thank-you!
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
As for our vacation in your condo, the only thing that I can say is that you never stop surprising us. There are no words to express our appreciation for going through all the trouble of flying to Orlando only to make sure we had internet access. You really make us feel as if we have a second home in Orlando. Thanks again for everything. Say hi to Becky.
We loved your condo! Our trip was very relaxing and enjoyable. We had been to Disney 4 times before, always staying on property. We needed more space this year now that the boys are getting bigger, but we were nervous about staying off property. We could not have been more pleased. We actually got to and from the parks quicker than when we used Disney transportation. You condo is so very very close to the parks. We had a great time at the condo. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. My mom and dad enjoyed the screened in deck. The boys loved the playground and the pool. My mom has been telling all her friends how much she loved staying at your condo, and how easy is was to get to and from the parks. Thank you so much for all of your help, the whole process of renting from you was a breeze. Your quick responses to all of my questions, made planning our vacation easy. One thing that I wasn't expecting to be in your condo that was a huge help was the laundry baskets. It made doing laundry for 6 people much easier. We rent a house at the beach each year and have never rented one where the owners thought to leave a laundry basket, I know this is a small detail, but one my mom and I appreciated. My boys also loved the straw cups you had and the stuffed animals on their beds.
Again thank you so very much and when we get the chance to visit Disney again we would love to rent from you again!
Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. Our vacation was great. We went to Disney and we were surprised to see the proximity of your condo to Disney World. I just don’t know why some people choose to rent a small room in a value hotel for the same price of a condo. I had a wonderful time. I enjoyed my breakfast on the balcony every morning. I like the view from the balcony. We can watch the kids at the pool. I will recommend your place to my friends.
Stephane Marie-Claude Laurianne and Catherine
Thank you so much for the great condo to stay in during our Christmas vacation! The place was wonderful and hopefully we left it as good as we found it! Our weather was great and the space was great. It is definitely a place we will recommend in the future to others and possibly for ourselves (if you are still owning the condo in about 5 or 10 years - it may take us that long to get back down in the area!).
In case you were wondering, we are a military family and have lots of friends and family who DO visit the Orlando area each year. If you would be alright with it, we would like to be able to recommend your condo to our friends when we find out they are going down there. You saved us a bunch of money and provided us the conveniences of home. Even though we rented the unit from you, we feel we should thank you for opening your home away from home up for us.
We hope you had a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you again for your hospitality.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your condo. Your care and concern for us as your guests was quite evident in your correspondence prior to our arrival. Because of your detail and thoroughness we knew exactly what to expect when we arrived at the condo. We truly had a fun and memorable vacation and having spacious accommodations with many of the amenities of home surely helped. I’ve already told some friends and family about your condo. We’ll be back.
Greenville, South Carolina
My family of 6 stayed at your condo for a week in September and really enjoyed it. The accommodations were very comfortable and the location was just right for all that we were planning on doing. The property is even nicer than the pictures on the website. We had a great time and would recommend the condo to anyone interested.
Tracey F. and family
Just wanted to drop you a short email regarding our stay at your condo. Everything was beautiful. The boys had an awesome time going back and forth between swimming in the pool (loved the fact that we could watch them from the balcony), playing pool in the game room, and reserving movies to watch in the theater. The location was convenient and close to everything. I have already referred you to one of the attorneys that I work for and told him that he needs to stay at your condo on his next trip to Disney. I will be keeping your contact information handy as well. Will contact you when we are ready to plan our summer vacation.
Thanks again for everything.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We enjoyed it very much the resort was very nice. My kids had a great time and the location was perfect. Hopefully we will be back again sometime but in the mean time I will definitely refer my family and friends to you.
Thanks again for all your help.
The four of us ( my husband Raj and our friends Desmond and Suzie from Melbourne, Australia), thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your condo. It was clean, comfortable and well furnished. Suzie described it as being "posh". The view of the pool, palm trees, landscaping and the added bonus of the large pond filled with water lilies was truly beautiful. We wished we could have stayed longer. Richie, you have been an amazing person to work with and I wish you the very best.
The condo was beautiful. We have a large family and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kids had a great time at the large pool. The whole complex is very family friendly.
Great location!!!! Disney is just a few minutes away and Universal is just 10 miles straight down the interstate.
I can't imagine anyone not loving this great condo.
Thanks for allowing us to stay and have an awesome family vacation.

Wow, what a beautiful Resort and Condo! The sight outside the window was gorgeous and it was so close to everything. You really do have the best positioned Condo of all. Thank you for making everything so comfortable with the way you got your information out to me. In the very future I would like to come down again bringing my whole family to enjoy the Resort, Condo and easy access in location to Disney!
Your condo was absolutely beautiful! Very upscale and clean. Looks like you really chose fine furnishings not just anything to call the place "furnished". My compliments to whoever decorated the home. We had just about everything we needed. The condo is really stocked nicely, from the water noodles in the laundry area to the bath rug outside the shower. The pool area was incredible!!! My kids always wanted to stay at the pool as opposed to going to Disney! Overall, we would recommend your condo to everyone. It was so nice and we have some wonderful memories. Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home to us. Dealing with you, Richie, was so nice. You made me feel confident in my choice for condo rental. You cover all bases and are very pleasant. If you rent out any other condos in other destinations... let me know, I would rent from you again in a heartbeat!

My family really enjoyed the stay. I would recommend this condo to everyone. Thank you for a great vacation. We will definitely be back sometime in the near future.
Thank you for the use of your beautiful condo last week. We were very happy with the clean and wonderful accommodations. The kids (all 4 of them) loved the pool area and their bedrooms. We were pleasantly surprised on the closeness to the Disney parks. The close proximity allowed us to "take a break" in the high heat of the afternoon and come back for a few hours to swim and eat. Your helpfulness in arranging our reservation was especially appreciated. We hope to reserve your place again in the future when we're visiting Orlando. Thanks again for being a part of our Disney magical vacation!

We recently spent several days in this lovely condo. It was great. The view of the tropical pool area is wonderful. Our children loved “their” rooms. My daughter felt like a princess in the second master bedroom. The furniture was very comfortable and the décor was very nice. The location of this condo in the building is great. It is near the elevators and the stairs. We were not able to hear any outside noise. The pool was great. It is large enough so that a large number of people can be in it at the same time and not feel crowded. The zero entry area is great for smaller children. The building this condo is in is the very first building inside the gate and just past the pool. The overall location of the resort is very convenient to all of the Disney parks as well as a large number of restaurants and shops. The security staff was very friendly. We could not get into the pool at first but then realized it required renting an access card from the Sales office which once returned our deposit was returned. The condo owner is great to work with. He really made the process easier. We will definitely be back.
If you are looking for a fun vacation with the kids but would also enjoy some relaxation...then this is the place for you! The gorgeous condo was very spacious, a true "home away from home"! The large washer/dryer was such a nice feature, no need to over-pack. The pool area was a huge hit with our family. The kids loved the waterslide! The grounds of the pool and condo area are beautifully maintained. The staff at Windsor Hills along with the rental agency were very helpful. In addition, we purchased park tickets through the agency. They actually brought the tickets to our unit, along with a welcome bag containing park maps, brochures of area attractions, and trial size products. Richie was very helpful & always answered questions in a timely fashion. I will definitely rent from him in the future & highly recommend it to everyone.
Kelly and I want to let you know that we REALLY enjoyed staying at your condo. It was far more than we expected. It was perfectly located, clean, large, well furnished, and we really enjoyed the pool. It was so close to Disney that we were able to visit the parks in the morning, drive back to the condo, eat lunch, take a nap, and return to the parks in the evening refreshed and ready to go. We had a great vacation, and we want to thank you for opening your second home to us.

Condo is approximately two miles from Disney. Condo does have a pool view. Pool is awesome, better than advertised. Overall set up excellent. My family and I will use this condo again and would recommend to all.
Let me begin this review by saying that our stay in this condo exceeded all my expectations. I have never felt so at home while being on vacation! The condo is beautiful, spacious, clean, and convenient to all area attractions. My children (aged 14 & 16) were thrilled with the Playstation and internet access. After a tiring day at the parks, they headed for these amenities while Mom and Dad headed straight for the gorgeous, heated pool right downstairs. The condo is equipped with necessities like pots and pans, dishes, etc. All we had to do was get some groceries from nearby supermarkets and we were all set. Having a washer and dryer helped with packing issues as we didn't need to bring as much clothes as we normally would have for a week's stay.
The booking process was easy and efficient. The owner, Richie, is well-organized and eager to answer any and all questions. The next time we plan a vacation in Orlando, we will definitely rent this condo again. My only regret is having to leave!
Thanks again, Jennie

Our family stayed in Richie's condo March 18-25, 2006. It was wonderful. The resort is very well maintained and very clean. The condo is beautiful, spacious and equipped with everything you need. The best part is the location of this particular condo. You can sit on your balcony and watch the pool (nice if you have older children that would like to go to the pool alone) and it is the closest condo to all the resort's facilities. The resort itself is also in such a great location. It is right off the main road (so you are away from all the traffic) and yet only a few miles from Disney's entrance. You can be at the parks in 10 minutes. I also appreciated the owner's personal contact to make sure we had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay. We live in Tallahassee and will stay at Richie's condo whenever we go to Disney and have recommended it to all our friends. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
We were very pleased with our six night stay in spring 2006. The condo is comfortable, spacious, and well-furnished and equipped. It was clean and nicely set up for our arrival. The central pool and games area of the development is attractive and our boys really enjoyed the (supervised) waterslide. The location was very convenient for visiting Disneyworld, and there were supermarkets and a variety of restaurants close by. It was particularly helpful to us that the owner's property manager stays open 24 hours/day as we had to check in at 4:00am after a delayed flight. Overall, I found the website represented the property and the specific amenities very accurately, and Mr. Dagostino was extremely responsive and helpful in all our arrangements.
The condo is immaculate, beautifully decorated and spacious. The kitchen table was big enough for a large family and the kitchen well stocked. The dryer came in handy to dry towels. The location was the very best in the neighborhood, wonderful view of the pool and grounds below. It made life a lot simpler than having to pack up a bunch of stuff to hike to the pool, very convenient. The resort itself was wonderful as well, the pool was heated and my boys really enjoyed the ping pong tables. I would definitely stay the pool view condo again!

Your condo was truly fabulous! We had a great time and it was more than expected. We did not encounter any problems. The only thing I could suggest since I have small children is maybe to have some plastic cups and bowls in the condo. I was afraid that they were going to break your lovely cups and bowls. Other than that we will definitely use your condo again! We have already referred our friends that have also made a booking at this awesome location. The kids loved the pool and waterslide and some days did not want to leave the pool. We will definitely be back!

I would like to thank you for the use of you condo in Windsor Hills. My family enjoyed our vacation and the condo was fabulous. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location next to the pool was great for the kids. The pool was very warm and the slide was fun. We spent an afternoon at the playground and the kids loved that as well. Having the condo so close to Disney made it easy and quick for us to come and go and to return to our condo to eat meals which saved us a lot of money. We did not get the opportunity to use the game room but the convenience store on location was very helpful for the few things we needed and did not want to drive to a grocery store. Everyone there was friendly and professional and we would not hesitate to use your condo again in the future. One suggestion I have is to buy a rolling cart of some kind for our use. When coming in with luggage and a full car of groceries it would be helpful to be able to load up a cart instead of carrying everything by hand. Thanks again for everything, I hope others will enjoy it as much as we did.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your condo in January 2006.. It is in such a close location to Disney the drive was very short and easy to take. There are really some nice restaurants close by when we decided to dine out. Your condo was very clean and having the washer and dryer right there was nice to get the laundry done before returning home. Being able to view the pool from the enclosed deck was relaxing and beautiful with all the trees and flowers. Checking in and out was a breeze. You truly have a lovely condo and would recommend it to all of our friends. Thank you so much for letting us and our friends use your condo!
We rented the condo over the Christmas/New Year holiday 2005/6 for 4 adults.
The condo was exactly as advertised, new, clean, well-furnished and equipped, and ideally suited for visits to Disney and other attractions.
Booking was easy and the rate for the period was great value for the amenities provided. We were disappointed that we could not stay longer. We would certainly have no hesitation in renting again.
This is a great three bedroom condo with an awesome view of the gorgeous pool at this complex. There is a washer and dryer and full kitchen, and 2 full baths. I suspect it took us about 8-10 min to get to the parking lot at Disney world. The cost of the condo was very reasonable. The condo was clean and orderly and the furnishings in 11/2005 were almost new. We wish there would have been some dishwasher soap supplied as well as liquid dish soap. Hopefully that has changed. But if you are planning on eating at all in the condo just remember to pick up a small amount of both of those items at the store. The location of the office to pick up the key was about 3 or so miles down the "main drag" and their office could be better marked. But Richie is pretty good about giving the exact distance. Just ask him. When returning the key I was able to leave it on the table of the condo. I understand that the management office typically does not allow that, so be prepared to make the drive back to the office (opposite direction of Orlando Airport) prior to your departure. To be totally honest with who read this--I cannot see any reason to spend the money to stay in the Disney Park with the close proximity of this complex and its comfort.
Beautiful condo! We were extremely pleased with our stay at this condo. Very clean, brand new, lots of room and space. Our kids loved the pool and the movie theater. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of bed and bath space and a very nice kitchen. Very nice furnishings. Owner was easy to work with and talked with us over the phone many times before booking. We had never booked over the Internet before and were apprehensive, but this turned out to be a lovely place and a great experience. This place was definitely the highlight of our Disney vacation and by far the nicest place we have ever had the privilege of staying in Orlando. We will be back! Thanks for a wonderful experience.
Our family of 5 spent 4 great nights here in September 2005. The accommodations were superb. Everything was clean, plenty of clean towels, all the amenities you could ask for. We spent our days at Universal Studios and afternoons and evenings at the condo. It was a quick and easy drive to and from Orlando. Our children, 12, 10, 7 loved the pool, especially the amazing slide. The lifeguards were great and allowed us to stay later than the posted times. The adults enjoyed the hot tub. There was never a crowd and we had a fabulous view from the condo. We enjoyed having TVs in every room as our children all have different bedtime; it made things easy for us. The kids liked shopping at the small general store for treats with their allowance. We enjoyed everything so much, we recommended this unit to my brother-in-law and his family who came a month later and also had a fantastic time. We would not hesitate to come back again. We had our best family vacation ever. Thanks for your hospitality.

We very much enjoyed our stay Richie's "Pool View" condo at Windsor Hills. It was exactly as he described in the web site with no negative surprises. The location was perfect with very convenient access to all the Disney attractions. The condo was clean and well maintained. Mr. Dagostino was very honest, straightforward and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely rent from him again should our travels take us to the Orlando area in the future. You will definitely enjoy your stay.
