Thank you so much for a great two week holiday. This is our first visit to Walt Disney World and will certainly not be our last; loved every minute! Fantastic villa, and Windsor Hills is a beautiful community. Very comfortable and everything that we needed was available! We will definitely be passing on the details to our family and friends.
This home was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for more. As we struggled with where to stay for our family Disney vacation, we found this Disney vacation home in Windsor Hills! How grateful we were as it has been so nice to be able to come 'home' after a long day at the Disney parks, and to still be together as a family. We will definitely tell friends and family about this lovely Disney vacation home!
This was our first experience renting a private vacation home instead of staying at a Disney resort, and although we were a bit nervous at first, I can positively say that this is the new was that we will be visiting Disney from now on! Windsor Hills is a beautiful place to stay, and I wish I could call it home! The clubhouse looked beautiful, but we were too busy relaxing at our own private pool! This was also my first time in a salt water pool- it felt amazing! We will be contacting you soon to book our next vacation, and will recommend to anyone that we hear of visiting Walt Disney World!

Our family of 10 just recently spent a week at the Parkside Palace and I must say, it was awesome! The kids loved their bedrooms, game room & pool! We usually stay in Disney World but decided we would try a Windsor Hills house rental this time! We will definetly stay at the Parkside Palace again! The house is so spacious and exactly as the pictures show and the management company is great to deal with! Very quick to respond with any questions, restaurant suggestions and whatever you may need! Thanks Five Star Vacation Homes! This house is gorgeous and very tastefully decorated! We hope to be back soon!
Jewetta Cook, Pennsylvania
My family of nine had an excellent stay at the Parkside Palace. I would recommend any of my friends and family to stay here. My children loved the game room. The adults loved the pool area and kitchen. This home was just as advertised on the website. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the wonderful memories.
The O'Halloran Family, Mandan, North Dakota
Thank you for accommodating us and making your home available for us to stay. This is a beautiful rental home! This is such a relaxing way to enjoy the parks. I will be recommending your home to all of my friends and family. Lots of luck to you; You were a JOY to deal with and I look forward to staying here again!
The Iversen Family
We can't explain how much we have enjoyed staying here; the house is much more than we expected. It has been great to come back to this lovely house at the end of a long day - just to relax in the pool or play in the gameroom - it really brings the family close together! We couldn't have had a better place to stay and we have loved every minute we have spent in the house. We for sure wouldn't mind coming back to spend another vacation in this fantastic villa!
Bea, George & Family
We have had a wonderful week in Orlando. Your villa is lovely and was a perfect place for our family to gather for a belated celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. We are rarely able to get together as we come from Colorado, Pennsylvania and the Florida Panhandle and were especially appreciative of this opportunity to thank you for opening your home to us and making this possible.
Kathy, Atlanta, Georgia
I had meant to send you an email each day of our vacation – as we just loved your place so much! It was so clean and nicely decorated. I have to share with you our experience, as our friends had a very different experience with their condo. We booked our trip with friends of ours who booked condo #--- (you were ---, right?) – it is just around the corner. Our friends’ condo was very dirty. Their youngest daughter (age 5) found an old dirty baby bottle under her bed that still had old milk in it! (again, this is NOT your condo). I went to cut some apples for our children while we were at her condo, and when I pulled out a sharp knife, it had dried cheese on it. Their dishwasher didn’t work well, so they had to hand wash many of the dishes both before and after using them! Their toilet overflowed, and the only plunger they had in the unit was torn to shreds and completely inadequate. There were cereal crumbs under the bed that had not been vacuumed up that they noticed the day they arrived. My friend was so sad that she was in the condo that they had. They loved your condo so much more! We all did!! It was also so nice that a member of your management company came by mid-week to check on us and deliver cookies! He was so nice, professional and helpful. I promise you this – the next time we schedule a trip to Orlando, we will most certainly be reaching out to you again! In fact, I am sending your information to other friends of ours as well, as they are planning a trip in the fall. Thank you both so much. We really appreciate the lovely home you have and after seeing how other people take care of their condos – we truly have a greater appreciation for yours! It was just delightful!!
The Skeates Family
What can we say that already hasn't been said! The 'wow' factor when we first walked through the door was amazing- we really couldn't believe that we would be staying in such a lovely home for two weeks. Everything was perfect - the children loved their rooms, the ladies loved the wardrobe space & the men could relax in the games room. Don't forget the pool & spa! Thank you for allowing us to stay in this home! We have already been recommending this fantastic place to stay. We hope that we will be back in the near future to share this family experience once again. Sad that we're leaving
Dave, Mayley, Shannon & Dylan
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We have had a very memorable family holiday and hope we can return soon.
Michael, Chattanooga, Tennessee
Our family of five decided to take a last minute trip to see Mickey Mouse and we were very fortunate to come across Five Star Vacation Homes and this great townhouse in Windsor Hills. There was plenty of space for everyone, and there was no fighting with the kids since they had their own space (one had the queen bedroom, and the twins shared the upstairs bedroom). Our oldest loved hanging out at the clubhouse pool, which wasn't more than a minute away, and our daughters enjoyed having their own pool in our backyard, (although they did love that water slide at the Windsor Pool). We couldn't beat the location, the price, or the service! Thank you, Kevin, for an all around great stay. We can't wait to get back here again!
Saundra, Gulfport, Mississippi
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how wonderful you were from the beginning to the end of our vacation planning, and apologize for all of those phone calls late in the day when planning our vacation! Your patience with me throughout the entire process and more appreciated than I can express. The home that we stayed in was just perfect in more ways than one; between the pool, and all of the bedrooms and bathrooms, and even having our own parking space to come home to were all contributing factors to a successful week in Orlando, Florida. My granddaughter absolutely loved the swans that were towels in disguise that she brought them into her room and wanted to take it home! Thank you again for a great vacation, and lasting memories for our three generation visit last week. We look forward to doing this again!
Jenny, Egg Harbor Township, NJ
Our stay in this town home was great. We were a big group with ages from 2 to 60, with a teenager included and we all had a wonderful time. The pics are very true to reality. There is definitely room for everyone and we loved having a private bathroom for each room. The upstairs has the main room and the kids bedroom with the laundry. The downstairs has the third bedroom and living area. We used the little pool often, it was great the last day while the adults were packing the kids were having one last fun in there. It is gated, which I was glad having a toddler with me. We cooked everyday, the oven, the utensils and everything else was in good condition. The resort itself it's wonderful, the pool and slide was awesome, the free movie showings were a plus and the arcade game room was also good. Windsor Hillls is huge, but this house has the perfect location, it will take 2 minutes to walk from the house to the clubhouse/store. Overall I will highly recommend it! but you do have to have a car to go anywhere.
Mike, Dawn, Kellen & Larry Schneider, West Des Moines, IA
We had a delightful stay in your beautiful home. It was very comfortable for two families and we used every inch of it from the pool to the gameroom! It accommodated all of the children well from our 16 year old to the 9 year old. We also enjoyed the clubhouse pool and the clubhouse convenience store was handy as well. The family of Cranes who visited were a delightful surprise! Thank you! The Schneiders
The Milson Family
Three generations of us have had an amazing holiday in Florida. The villa was amazing and we had a very comfortable stay here which added to the whole experience. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to have a great holiday. From Carole & John (Grandparents), Hillary, Garett, Mel, David, James & Daniel
Natasha, Mark, Aimee & Sam Hollingsworth
This is our 4th stay at Windsor Hills and your villa is one of the better ones we have rented. We have really enjoyed our stay and Kevin was very helpful and dealt with out queries efficiently and promptly. Aimee & Sam named the two bears 'Winter' & 'Summer', they slept with them every night and say they will really miss them! Thank you! The Hollingsworth Families
Lafrance / Renaud Family, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
We had a great time and enjoyed staying here immensely. We definitely will be back! By the way, we just loved the Longhorn Steakhouse. Yum!
Simon, United Kingdom
Thanks very much for letting us rent this property in Windsor Hills recently. We loved the house and it was exactly as described on your website.
Mike and Jamae Sellari
Your home is absolutely gorgeous. The grandsons (3,3, and 9) really enjoyed the pool and the game room. And the Star Wars room and the Mickey Mouse room were a definite hit! Brody has dubbed it his "new house" and Camden calls is his "Disney house." We are really going to hate to leave. Thank you for being such gracious hosts.
The Hosn Family
We really had a great time in Florida. We really enjoyed the house. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The kids really enjoyed the game room. We will contact Five Star Vacation Homes next time we vacation here. Thanks.
The Grimmett Family
Our family truly enjoyed the comforts of your home. It had been 2 years since our family got together and we're so glad it was here.the home and its decor are gorgeous and the neighborhood was fabulous.
The Steeves Family
Thanks for sharing your incredible home with us! It was great. We especially enjoyed the pool-eating out on the deck and kids enjoyed the arcade games. Easy to find everything and close to all we needed!
The Collins Family
Thank you again for everything and letting us stay here for a couple of days before moving next door. Isaac turned out to be a dud for this part of Florida, so we got a couple of extra days to spend here. Your home is beautiful and very comfortable. It had everything we needed and more.
The Capes Family
We have had a fantastic 3 weeks at your villa. The location is excellent for getting to the parks, restaurants, and supermarkets. The villa had everything that we needed and the kids loved the pool. We hope to be to Florida next year and will definitely consider booking your villa again.
The Murray Family
What a fantastic time we have all had staying in your beautiful home. We have everything we needed to make sure our 3 week stay was exactly what we had planned. It was great having Kevin just around the corner, what a helpful guy!! We will be highly recommending your home; we've stayed in Windsor Hills before in a 6 bedroom house which was nice, but I love the interior.
The del Campo Family
Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful villa! We had a terrific stay here and your place made all the difference! I would like to congratulate you on taking care of all the details! Nothing was missing! It was just perfect! Kevin was an ace sorting out the small details...It was just a perfect vacation! Will surely recommend your place to our friends! Thanks!
The MeCerchant Family
What a find your house is! Great location, beautiful home...perfect spot for a family reunion. Exactly as advertised-only better. My 5 year old learned to swim in your pool! 8 cousins and 8 adults=pandemonium most of the time. We were so grateful for all the space your home provided us. We had the family vacation of a lifetime. We will definitely spread the word to all our fellow snowbirds. Thanks again!
Fernando and Denise
On a scale from 1 to 10.....20!!!! We were expecting a very nice home....but it was well beyond our expectations!! Fantastic! When we arrived the home was spotless and in perfect condition. We were amazed how all the details had been taken care of. It was really being at 'home'! We were also aware that we had Kevin as a backup resource in case we needed assistance from other guests' reviews. And it worked! We had a couple of minor things...and his response was impressive: very fast, friendly and solving the situation within seconds. We were desperate to make the most of the pool and sunshine as we were coming from a very rigourous winter in the southern hemisphere...but the weather was against us... we had quite a lot of rain. But the pool area is absolutely fabulous. We had stayed at another villa at Windsor Hills nearly two years ago, and we had our neighbours right under our noses! The fact that there is no villa at the back allows you to enjoy the view of a wonderful garden which stretches out for about 250 mts in total privacy! And when the sun did peep out, one could see the benefits of a south-oriented pool! It does make the difference! We would definitively recommend this place as it made a substantial difference to our holiday! Unfortunately our kids are quite old now and we feel this was our last visit to Disneyworld...will have to wait until we get grandchildren....Hope you are still around by then because we won't look around...you will be our first option!! Thank you very much for making our vacation really special!
Alex and Mary
We have had a wonderful two weeks in the villa. We have felt completely at home and even as Disney lovers, I have been quite content to spend time here at the villa pool. Easy transportation to Disney, even though we had a car. Pool and spa lovely. Five Star was very helpful. Do not want to leave!!!
I spent many weeks surfing the net looking for the "perfect" accommodation for our Disneyworld holiday. My wife and I were travelling with our two kids (age 10 and 5) and the childrens' grandmother from Brisbane, Australia. We knew we needed something where we could all have our own space after spending each day at the parks. This house was perfect! Whilst 6 bedrooms was far more than we needed (...we only used three) it was great just to have the extra space and to each have our own bathroom. Each also had their own TV and DVD player! The house is immaculatey clean and everthing appears to be brand-new including the massive high-def LCD widescreen TV in the family room! The whole house has been professionally interior-decorated very recently to give a very modern but classically luxurious cosy ambience. There is a great mix of formal areas for lounging and dining and also casual family areas for more informal relaxing and dining including an outdoor terrace overlooking the sparkling blue pool (which can be heated if you choose). A full size family kitchen/pantry with all the mod-cons including ice-making/chilled water dispensing fridge, dishwasher, microwave etc was a bonus. Having said that, we ate out a lot of the time at a huge variety of restaurants within short driving distance from the house including Rainforest Cafe, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Cafe, Cheesecake Factory, Olive Garden, Applebees, Denny's, Sizzlers, McDonalds etc many more at Downtown Disney and within the parks themselves. It was great to have the choice. The house has a fantastic games room which includes a pool table, Foosball, Air Hockey plus it's own wide-screen LCD TV and a couple of beanbags. The kids loved that Wii, XBox and PS3 were all there...PLUS a variety of their favourite games....which was a complete surprise to them! The owners have catered for nearly every little thing that you could possibly think you might need, right down to international electric plug adaptors, can openers, kettles, toasters, utensils, and a large variety of crockery/cutlery etc. They've also provided a number of DVDs and books including the Unofficial Guide to Disneyworld which we found useful. The Windsor Hills estate is one of the closest in distance to the Disney park and was another reason for making this home our choice. We would all certainly recommend this property to family and friends and would also stay again in future if we were to visit again.
We stayed in this villa as part of a group of 10, aged from 6 to 75. Windsor Hills is in a central location for the parks and very secure. The villa itself? Absolutely gorgeous! The accomodation was huge and the 10 of us fitted in comfortably. The facilities were great, kids loved the games room and were often found crashed out on the gamers beanbags playing the Wii after a day of walking around the parks, while the adults played pool. Mornings were spent in the swimming pool and the available floats and lilos were a real bonus. I am glad the pool was heated as it was used a lot in the mornings and in the evening when it was cooler outside - and my 8 year old took a particular liking to the jacuzzi! We were lucky enough to have the master bedroom and I can honestly say I have never encountered a bathroom that size before. The fans in the bedrooms were very effective and very quiet, and the A/C controls were seperate for upstairs and downstairs, meaning that the house was never to hot or over cooled. The kids loved the themed rooms and the blackout blinds ensured a good night sleep for all. There was ample storage space in all the bedrooms - I wish my closet at home was that size! The kitchen appliances were all excellent quality and very clean and there was a wide range of kitchen tools. Service recieved from the owners from the time of our initial enquiry has been first class and all the transactions were very smooth and agents responsible for maintenance in Florida were very good. Upon reporting a beeping fire alarm in one of the bedrooms one morning it was attended to within half an hour. The villa was very clean when we arrived and the pool well attended to whilst we were there. The villa had large amounts of towels(both beach and body) available and the laundry room was well kitted out. The towel swans in the bedrooms whe we arrived were a classy touch!! I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone going to Florida. If we ever go again in a large group we will be checking availability here first! After staying in the villa I can honestly say that I would never book a hotel in Florida again as the comfort and feeling of a 'base' really is worth it.
Bob and Linda
Lovely home, lovely area, great location! The five bedrooms were perfect for our grandchildren and they loved them! The home met our family's needs perfectly. Also enjoyed the clubhouse area. Great vacation!
The Cundict Family
Mom and the kids picked this place, they did great! A beautiful home and a great location for activities. Kids used the pool each night! Has a wonderful time! Thanks for shaking this lovely house.
The Weber Family, Iowa
Great house! Loved the pool and all of the activities at Windsor Hills. Had a great time, thank you!
The Planicks Family
House was awesome! Everything we needed was here. Five Star was excellent! Anytime we called they'd answer, no matter what time or day it was...We will definitely be back! Home is beautiful! Kids loved the pool and parents enjoyed their first visit to Florida. Thank you very much!
The Bruckman Family
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful home with us. Everything you need is here and more. We didn't have the best weather but with the Xbox, the Wii, the arcade game, and the pool table, we never once heard anyone say "they were bored." The pool was the biggest hit! Looking forward to a return trip!
The Rileys, New Jersey
Thanks for another great stay. Five Star was excellent-from the "swan " towels to the help finding a good steak house. All the best.
The Sharks, New Mexico
We had a wonderful time. We felt like we were at our own home. Looking forward to the next vacation. Five Star was very helpful and the home was setup like a fancy hotel when we arrived.
Staples and Fillingames Family, North Carolina
We all had a wonderful and memorable stay here! It was hot for December/January though!
The Stevens Family, Pennsylvania
We had a great family vacation and enjoyed the house, games room, and hot tub. Our weather was very warm for January which was a nice switch from the snow in PA. We appreciated all the helpful hints from the Five Star team.
The Turner Family, Texas
If you`re looking for a place for your family to stay while on vacation in Orlando, look no further! This is a great location, plenty to do onsite, easy to get to other destinations, very secure and comfortable. It was exactly as advertised. There were no hidden surprises. I`ve told all our family & friends to stay here! Our family will as well when we return!
The L Family
Great Disney Vacation!!! Will never stay ongrounds again!!! My family and I rented this condo for our Disney trip on Memorial week, and we loved this condo at Windsor Hills! We felt very secure with the 24 hour guards on duty unlike some of the other condo rentals we have stayed at. The Condo was very clean and comfortable exactly like the online photos. My girls loved the Disney decorations and the Mickey and Minnie beds and the large walk in closet. It had all the amenities of home and was great to come back and relax to after a tiring day at the parks. The playground for the kids in the resort is safe and clean and gated as well. I wish we had more time to use the resort pool, but the one time I took my daugher there she had an awesome time in the pool and the kid sprinklers. It is only a few minutes to Disney and very close to restaurants and a few miles to Super Target! For this luxury and price we will never stay at a Disney resort again!
The Cusicks Family
We very much enjoyed our stay here. The house is very comfortable and in a great location to Disney and the ESPN venues! Thank you very much!
The Rodriguez Family, Holyoke, MA
Thank you for another wonderful stay in this beautiful home! We hope to be back next year:)
Donohue Family, Minnesota
We had such a marvelous time enjoying Orlando while staying at your lovely home. Our children, spouses, and grandchildren all had lots of space to 'spread out,' and space to enjoy each other as a family. We left with wonderful memories of a very fun vacation. Thank you for sharing this home!
Jessica, Mark & Teagan
Thank you for a great stay! We really enjoyed your condo for your first vacation with our daughter. This was our first time in Windsor Hills and we will be back! Our nine month old loved the pool, especially the splash pad! Looking forward to our next visit.
The Kennedy Family
This was a perfect stay for a family getaway. The house was great. THe pool and staff were great. Thank you for sharing your home with my family. It was an experience some of us will never have again and the rest of us will cherish for a lifetime. There's not enough positive I can say or write about this house or its location. Thank you so much!!!
Girl Scout Troop 228
We are a girl scout troop from Miami and had an awesome time staying here! We especially had fun in the game room and pool. As a troop, we made wonderful memories in this lovely, relaxing home! Thank you so much!
Lydia, Cleveland, Ohio
My family and I had a wonderful time at the Parkside Palace at Windsor Hills. We stayed at Windsor Hills 3 years ago and its a great location to the parks and the ESPN facility. Parkside Palace is super roomy and beautifully decorated. The home is perfect for families. The kitchen is roomy, the game room is perfect for preteens and teenagers, as well as adults. There are awesome flat screen TVs in each bedroom, which was great and a huge flatscreen TV in the living room. The house is super clean and the furniture was brand new and comfortable. There were extra sheets for every bed and plenty of clean, soft towels and washcloths for each of the 4 full baths. Kevin Kirby, the owner and manager of the home, was very attentive during the renting process and always could be reached by email or phone. Unlike most vacation homes, Five Star Vacation Homes labeled all the light switches and also clearly displayed instructions, like how to turn on the alarm. I would recommend renting this home to my family and friends and highly recommend the Parkside Palace at Windsor Hills for your next visit to Orlando.
We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed ALL the facilities. Everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and the kids thought having their own en-suite facilities was fab!! The location of the villa to the clubhouse and also to all Disney Resorts was an added bonus. A holiday to remember-forever-thank you!!
