Villa By The Castle’s Pool Spa And Lanai
Villa By The Castle has a great outdoor space, perfect for relaxing and soaking in the Florida sun!
Typically this is where you’ll spend most of your time so we made sure to put a lot of attention to what we provide here. 🙂
The back of the house faces a green space with two large trees in the center. Sitting in the lanai or pool while looking out into the green space has a great feel.
The entire lanai and pool deck are enclosed in a pool enclosure, keeping out a lot of the pesky Florida critters and bugs.
We also added privacy bushes around the entire enclosure. The bushes add privacy when you’re in the pool as well as extra greener which we liked. 🙂
The lanai has seating for 8 at the outdoor dining table, a ceiling fan and is a great place to sit under the shade.
The pool has just been refinished and we added cute little turtles to the bottom of the pool.
The pool was also converted to saline (a salt water system) which is much better for everyone’s health, especially the little ones.
The pool is heated year round, and we usually set it around 88 degrees.
Unlike most other houses, we don’t charge extra for pool heat and we also don’t prevent you from setting the temperature to whatever temperature you feel comfortable with.
The pool is 3 feet deep on the shallow end and 5 feet deep on the deep end. Although the actual depth varies, depending on how full it is.
Villa by the Castle is one of the only vacation rentals in Windsor Hills with a salt water pool.
The spa is an extension of the pool with an over flow feature that creates a small water fall from the spa into the pool.
The hot tub spa had 4 jets and can seat 4 – 6 people comfortably. The timer for the spa is on the wall on your right as you walk out of the sliding doors onto the pool deck.
Similar to the pool we don’t limit the heat on the pool/spa equipment so you can set the temperature to whatever you feel comfortable with, typically the temperature is set to 104 degrees.
The Lounge Chairs
We recently replaced the lounge chairs to higher-end chairs that have padding build into the chair.
There are 4 lounge chairs and two small tables where you can put your drink or snacks while you lounge.
There are a bunch of floaties, goggles and pool toys in the deck box to the right of the sliding doors when you walk onto the pool deck.
We also have a poolside basket ball hoop which is always fun to play with the kids.
To make sure the little ones can only go into the pool when they are supposed to we’ve installed a new pool security fence.
We also wanted to mendion that we do not have a door sensor on the sliding door.
We’ve had many guests ask about it in the past ask, not because they wanted it but because they did NOT want it.
They found it to be annoying which we can understand so we never installed one. We find the security fence to be the perfect way to not annoy everyone all while keeping the little ones safe.
You’ll have a 5 burner gas grill BBQ that you’ll be able to use during your stay.
Unlike most other houses in Windsor Hills we don’t charge any additional cost for the use of the barbecue.
In fact we also provide propane free of charge! 🙂
We just changed the BBQ to a new 5 burner grill, the picture still needs to be updated. 🙂
