"In town with co-workers for conferences…the most stocked house we have ever stayed in."
"Very nice house. Owners are very easy to communicate with."
Wonderful Stay as Always!
"Our family has returned to this home multiple times. Initially, we were attracted to the location of the neighborhood. Since, we've come to feel like Steve and Sandy's home is reliably clean and welcoming. They are available and ready to assist if needed. When we stay in this home, we feel like every detail is considered to make sure people have what they need and feel comfortable there. The pool and spa area are clean and maintained. Additionally the security in this neighborhood is strict in a good way. They enforce the rules and provide the reassurance that a family neighborhood should. We come to the area often, as we have family in the vicinity, and will always to come back to this home if and when available. Lori and Greg"
A place to come back to
"The house had everything we needed, especially in the kitchen and laundry room. Plenty of space both in the house and by the pool to gather together or spread out when desired. Beds and couches were very clean and comfortable. Timely communication with host. Would stay here again."
"We were very pleased with the property and location."
Perfect House for Us
"The house is exactly as advertised. All seven us appreciated the large bedrooms and bathrooms, which allowed each of us ample privacy. The open kitchen / family room was ideal for breakfast and late night gatherings. Finally, the process for entry and departure could not have been simpler. We absolutely will book this house again for our future family reunions. Obrigado!"
"Wonderful house. Everything available."
First family vacation in 10 years
"AMAZING!! This property was superb from booking to checkout. We were all blown away by the cleanliness, layout de, and location of this wonderful house in a very safe and easy to find resort. We did Disney, the beach, discovery cove and had fantastic pool time at our home away from home everyday after our adventures! Steve and Sandy are excellent hosts and are more than prompt with responses! They have gone above and beyond to provide everything you need for a memorable vacation home! We are DEFINITELY going to ONLY choose this house on future Orlando visits! Once you stay here you will agree! We hope to be back very soon! Thank you Steve and Sandy for your hospitality!"
Our amazing stay Kissimmee
"OmG!!!! This house was amazing it was neatly organized,clean,cozy, exquisite, and so relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay. The host were kind, friendly , and quick to respond to questions. The neighborhood was a calming environmental resort. We can’t wait to book this house next year. Thank you 😊"
Windsor Villa on Daulby
"Where do I begin? From the time we booked this property to the time we left, everything was perfect! The location of this property is ideal and Steve and Sandy have absolutely everything you may possibly need for a vacation. Their communication was stellar! The property has it all! I would highly and strongly recommend this property! We hope to be back again!"
Excellent house for big Family!
"This property has everything you need to feel comfortable with infants, small children and adults. Everything in the pictures were accurate. This house was equipped with everything and so many extras! Would highly recommend this house and property to everyone. A piscina, whirlpool was great with full grill outside as well. Great community to run and the kids loved the playground. The kitchen has all you need! Owners were excellent to communicate with. If you are looking for a fun house with game room, Piscina, etc... this is your house!"
Fabulous Place for families!
"Everything that you would need is here from full kitchen needs, living area entertainment, bedrooms with TVs with full bathrooms to baby gear and pool/pool toys. We had the best time here with the whole family. Hated to leave this wonderful property!"
"This home is way more than what is advertised. Steve & Sandy were the best host. They provided us with everything we needed while staying at their property. The house is amazing. I literally stayed in the pool everyday i was there and didn't want to leave. Our children loved the video games, pool table, pool toys etc and it kept them occupied. We didn't even venture to the resort pool because this home had all you needed to entertain. We will definitely ne back again."
First Class Accommodations!
"This property is by far the best we have ever stayed in. We travel a lot. The Owners - Sandy and Steve have thought of everything! It’s immaculate and organized. New flooring, couches and kitchen countertops. Baby stuff to cover all ages, including all pool toys and a huge game room. Our Grandchildren had a blast. It’s close to the all the parks, Disney Springs and Sea World. We were so busy we didn’t even have time to enjoy all the amenities within the neighborhood which included dueling water slides, pool and so much more. You will feel safe in this gated community! Easy access to everything. Sandy and Steve make booking this property effortless! We will be back!"
Great location, house has everything you need!
"Would definitely stay there again. Myself and family were very happy with this house! Minutes from stores and restaurants. Short drive to Disney. If we return to Orlando we’ll try to stay there again!"
"Comfortable, clean, well stocked and very spacious. Located in a nice neighborhood close to Disney."
"Beautiful property in a great location. The backyard was great and we spent most of the non Disney time in the heated pool. The house is very well laid out for two families. Host was very helpful and responsive. Thanks for a great vacation spot!"
"This property exceeded our expectations!! We had a 3 generational gathering at this home and we truly don’t think we could have picked a better place! The location of the house is so convenient to the Castle Park and Community Pool (both places we frequented ALOT due to our grandkids’ ages: 3-1/2, 1-1/2 & 7 months). The zero entry community pool was absolutely perfect for our 3 littles!! We felt like we were at a resort!! We also enjoyed many hours in our house pool! We loved having the natural barrier around the pool which provided us privacy. The close location to Disney Parks (and a huge Walmart!) was so convenient, too. Finally, Steve & Sandy were amazing hosts! We had a slight glitch with the house code when we originally arrived and they immediately replied with a new house code which worked. They were also quick to respond on a few of our other inquiries we had during our visit. We would definitely rebook this home for a future FL family gathering!! Steve e Sandy, thank you for being top notch hosts and for allowing our family to make so many amazing memories at your home!!"
"My husband and I had a great stay. Kids and grandchildren joined us and they loved it. Awesome house."
Perfect Vacation Home Close to Disney
"Thank you Steve and Sandy for a wonderful home away from home! This was our first time traveling since having kids (and due to Covid) - we were with a one year old and soon to be three year old, plus had two friends and their daughter joining us so a super clean and baby/toddler friendly home was essential. I wasn’t sure it existed until I found Villa by the Castle. All the baby stuff we could think of was there - stair gate, pool gate, cadeiras altas, carrinhos de bebê, berços, non-slip tub mats and baby bathtub, stool for our toddler to reach the sink, even a potty seat…just so much! And when I noted that the sun umbrella was broken on a stroller - the owners had a new stroller delivered the next day! Baby stuff aside, the house was awesome. Spacious, comfy beds, lots of seating, lovely decor, and safe thanks to being in a gated community. It was stocked with all the essential appliances including two coffee makers for big groups and even starter consumables such as detergent, toilet paper, dish sponges, etc. which was nice. The owners made a really handy welcome guide that addressed everything we needed to know and for a few random questions we had, they were quick to respond. It was close to Disney and we had a wonderful stay. If you’re thinking of renting this house, don’t hesitate. The owners are very attentive and thoughtful people who clearly enjoy sharing their home with people who will care for it and appreciate it. My only regret is that we didn’t book longer!"
"We had an amazing stay!!! The home is exactly as described and the owners have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. Everything is extremely organized and baby friendly. We liked how we walked in and could find everything immediately. The pool and hot tub are well maintained and there are plenty of toys for children. The community center is terrific and there are plenty of playgrounds. The owners are extremely responsive and attentive to every detail. A must stay!!!"
Wonderful and highly recommend!
"We were so happy with this rental! Steve and Sandy were so accessible and responded right away to our questions. Beds were comfy. We really appreciated that everything was labeled and organized so well. It had absolutely everything we needed. What sold us on booking the house was everything was included in the stay. I didn’t want to have to worry about the pool or hot tub being too cold for the kids to swim or have to worry about additional fees. We spent hours in the pool and hot tub and it was wonderful! We had lots to do in the area - discovery cove, sea world, and aquatica. We also took a day and drove to Clearwater. We appreciated how close this house was to grocery store, liquor store, etc. This house has everything you need for a fun and memorable vacation! Thanks Steve and Sandy!"
Nice place, good locations, with a very well heated pool.
"Property managers were responsive and easy to work with. We came on a cold weekend and they have a gas heated pool (rare in Florida) that will warm the pool to 90 even during 50 degree weather. The kids loved jts"
Great home, just as presented.
Perfect stay at villa
"Just a great property, everything is top notch. Kids loved the pool, hot tub and game room. Spacious areas for dining, watching sports, or just relaxing. As an added touch, everything is clearly labeled so you don't have to spend time finding the right cabinet or switch. Highly recommend to families looking for a stay neat Disney!!!"
"2nd time here we were treated like family Our hosts Steve and Sandy are amazing. We truly enjoyed every moment. Our grandson enjoyed the pool and after a long day at Disney the jacuzzi is just what the dr ordered fir us adults. Will be back"
"Such an amazing place to stay! It gives everything a family vacation needs"
Great space, well appointed
"Other than a cleaning check in delay, everything was wonderful! Byo paper products!"
Wow! Excellent place!
"Let's start with the negatives. There are none- that was easy. We had a wonderful stay. The pictures on the site are accurate but really don't really do the place justice. It's beautiful! We found it clean, Abra, bright and comfortable. The pool and hot tub on the lenai were a fantastic amenity. Let's talk about the kitchen! As a family that likes to cook we were pleasantly surprised to find every kitchen appliance and convenience tucked neatly inside the pantry! Steve and Sandy were excellent hosts. They sent us all the information we needed prior to our stay as well as some very handy extras on locations of nearby stores and attractions. They checked on us to make sure we got in ok and when we had some car trouble they were exceptionally responsive to our questions about a repair shop. My family and I look forward to staying again! Obrigado, Steve e Sandy!"
"This home layout worked well for our family to get together to celebrate our grandchildrens' birthdays. It was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed both the pool at the house and the community pool. The hosts provided quick response to any questions."
"It was a wonderful experience that we will always cherish!"
Great house for a Disney trip
"House was clean, confortable and had everything you need ! Kids loved the play room and pool , it was great not to fight technology time haha they didn’t even care to go on devices between the pool and the playroom! Kitchen had everything you could need! We stay a short weekend to do Animal kingdom, Disney parks are 10-15 min drive which is awesome!! Definitely saving this property on my favorites for the next orlando trip! Communication with host was great and quick!"
"Such a wonderful two weeks. Everything you need is there. If you have a family with small kids like us and find yourself packing strollers, pacote de peças n, cadeiras altas, even a waffle maker - do not look any further. This house had it all. The owners were super responsive and proactive to all our needs. Highly recommend!!"
"This house was perfect!! We had 12 people. 8 adults 4 children ranging in age from 10 months to 66. The villa had everything you would need for children. Very close to everything!! Our children loved the pool and game room. My 8 year old grandson finally learned to swim and we couldn’t get him out of the water. Steve and Sandy thought of everything you would ever need. Would definitely recommend villa by the castle to everyone!! Thank you again for a memorable family vacation!!! Will be back!!💕"
"My family had a amazing time. Upon everyone seeing the many things to do in the home from the game room, to the pool and hot tub, our original 4th of a July plans were changed and all time was spent the entire time there."
"Everything was wonderful"
Vacation not long enough
"The hosts were absolutely wonderful and responsive with any questions. The property was well stocked and well maintained. The house is big and spacious with plenty to do to entertain everyone. Definitely coming back and would recommend to anyone headed to Disney or Universal."
"We visited from London on vacation and stayed in this wonderful house for 10 days. Geral, we had a really good experience. The house is massive and very well equipped. There are 6 bedrooms (including one downstairs), more bathrooms than I can remember, a really nice games room and a swimming pool/jacuzzi. The place was very clean and tidy when we arrived. The house is located within a secure development so you always feel very safe. And I must say that the owners are superb - always very responsive and helpful. There is a comprehensive book of house instructions and useful local area guide available on arrival. I would very much recommend this house to other families - there aren't many better than this. Also only 10 min drive from Disney and all major routes. Many thanks to Steve and Sandy for your kind hospitality."
"Amazing house in an amazing location. 10/15 mins from Disney. The house is huge, clean and on a lovely development. Will recommend to anyone I know visiting Disney. Hosts were great and really accommodating. Really made our holiday special staying in such a great house."
"I had a wonderful stay everything was immaculate and more than what I expected the pictures do no justice I felt right at home since I have a 5bd home my family had more than enough space and everything was perfect. The hosts were wonderful and accommodating from beginning to end with prompt responses to all of my questions and concerns. I will absolutely be coming back to visit in the near future."
"Five stars is not enough!!!!! Everything was amazing. Everything you would need on vacation was already at the home. Stephanie thought of everything, even baby necessities! Always a quick reply, the check in process was quick and very smooth. My family will definitely be staying with Steve and Sandy again and again."
"A casa é muito agradável e acolhedora, é um lugar de amaização para crianças e bebês e desde que tivemos muito se eles em nosso grupo que gostei. Há uma sala de jogos, consoles de jogos, Televisões, Piscina, Clube, jogos de mesa. Para bebês há camas, Brinquedos, monitor do bebê, Cobertores, cadeiras altas, carrinhos de bebê. Steva e Snady onde rápido ao responder, Útil, Flexível, Claro. I would love to stay in this house again if I would go back to Orlando."
"No geral, a casa foi um bom valor para Orlando. We traveled with friends that all had babies under the age of 2. 6 babies in total! A casa estava bem abastecida para crianças com portões de bebê, copos sippy, berços, cadeiras altas e até mesmo um bouncer. As a mom I really appreciate all of those touches."
"Group was very responsive with all questions and had prepared welcome and informational packages which were very helpful. House was beautiful, clean & had all amenities we could have needed!"
"We were very impressed with the house and the extras that were included. (Baby furniture, Brinquedos, and things that kept our 6 grandchildren busy). The house was also very clean and included anything you could have needed. (Kitchen supplies, cooking supplies, and other miscellaneous items). Thank you again for allowing us to have a very special week!"
Great Location and Owners
"Really enjoyed our stay! The splash pad was the best we’ve ever seen and our kids loved it. Great water slides too. Main pool was a bit warm for our liking, but the pool at the house was always nice and cool. The owners are very responsive and helpful. Everything was as described and our family of 12 fit very well. Not sure we found 12 bath towels in the house, but there were 6+ pool towels as well. Didn’t like the owners rule of 74 degrees on thermostat at night. I understand the need of higher temps during the day due to heat of the area, but 70 should be acceptable at night. Would recommend some curtains too for windows to keep heat and light out. House was very clean except for the floors. The tile floor will turn your white socks black. House was very homey, great kitchen supplies and excellent amenities for kids (the reason we ultimately chose this home.) Would not recommend going to the Walmart close by. Drive the extra distance and go to Publix. You will save yourself time and sanity. Four corners has to be the busiest intersection area in Orlando. Always traffic, just give yourself a little time and be patient."
Great Vaca and Great Place to Stay
"Everything was exactly as shown in the listing. The family and I thoroughly enjoyed the house and all of its amenities."
The house was beautiful and as advertised. Absolutely will be returning.
"We went on a small vacation with our family. The house was in a completely safe and nice neighborhood. There was a water park 2 mins walking distance from the property. We were near restaurants and shopping centers. The hosts were absolutely wonderful and accomadating. Quick to respond to any issue or question. They made us feel at home. The house had everything you needed. We will definitely be back!!!"
Family vacation of 12
"Wish we booked to stay longer. Our family vacation was amazing. Everyone had so much fun. The villa has so much to do for everyone. We went to clear water beach on Monday and Tuesday to universal studios for the first time. The house was completely stocked with everything we needed and the owners communicated with me promptly. They also sent a message to see how our trip was going. We will definitely be back again Thank you for having us"
Disney Family Vacation
"The House was awesome. We especially enjoyed the Beautiful pool area The house was very well Maintained and very Spacious We enjoyed our stay and hope to return Rebecca Sowers"
Thompson Family Disney vacation
"We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your property in Windsor Hills. Everything was perfect! Loved the amenities, beds were comfortable and all the kids loved the clubhouse pool and hot tub and pool at house as well as the game room Made some wonderful memories. Thank you Steve & Sandy!!"
Perfect house for our stay
"This house had everything we needed for our family. Perfect for large family vacations, espaçosos, pool was pristine and pool fence was great for extra security while eating on the lanai, lots of extras for baby items. Would definitely return for our vacation next year! Speedy responses to questions from the owners. Thanks for renting your home to us. Five stars all around."
Great location and amenities
"Very close to Disney. Very suitable home for family vacation. Highly recommended."
Wish we could have stayed longer!!
"We had an amazing time here! The house was set up perfectly for our large group with room to spare! We had 5 adults and 7 children. Everything was so neatly labeled and they had everything we needed (even cereal bowls with the straws attached- so fun!!). and Steve and Sandy were easy to get ahold of and responded right away. Having the pool right out the back door was great and so perfect for letting the kids swim and play anytime of the day! The kids couldn’t believe there was a game room in the house!! The location was close to both the playground and the large pool and water park. We had a wonderful vacation and wish we could have stayed longer, but we definitely made the most of it in this perfect house!"
Perfect Fun Family Vacation
"The rental process was simple from start to finish. Check in was made so easy by the use of a passcode and enabled members our family to get into the rental house at separate arrival times. The home was immaculate, comfortable and spacious, and well stocked with anything you might need on a vacation with children and adults! There was nothing we needed that we couldn’t find right in the house. The property was located very close to the Disney Parks, had a beautiful private pool and a park/ playground right on site!"
"Spacious, plenty of amenities, fun game room, clean pool and hot tub. Had everything we needed for 9 people. Kitchen was well stocked, had a brand new fridge. Plenty of towels, washer and dryer were great. Gated community, felt safe. Would stay here again. A few things were in need of replacing (cushions at outdoor table, hole in 1 couch), but nothing to deter me. Hosts were responsive prior to trip and honestly didn't need to contact them during our stay because everything was set up and labeled with directions so nicely!!"
Windsor way house
"It was an awesome house, great communication from the property owners. We had such a great time!"
Great location and Family Set Up
"If you have a large family with young children this location is ideal. The house has everything you could possibly need from a wealth of dishes to pool toys for all ages. There is a great children's play ground 2 minutes from the house. The central resort style pool caters to the very young with beach slope access to the older children who can utilize the water park type slides. Close to everything you will need in terms of food or food delivery and to the Disney parks. Super clean and well organized upon arrival."
Another Great and Enjoyable time
"This is our second time returning to Villa by the Castle. The home is well equipped, the owners are very responsive and the neighborhood is clean and safe!"
Great house - Windsor Hills polices not so great.
"The house, pool and neighborhood were great. There were a few problems with the house and the owner took care of them immediately. My gripe is with Windsor Hills. Our family had 3 cars. We needed a pass for all cars. No problem. Third car had to park at Club House (Windsor Hills policy) No Problem. Saw many homes with 3 cars parked on their driveways! Had a family member staying at Disney and wanted to come to the house for Super Bowl. Called the front gate to see if she could come for a few hours and they said no. Only 3 cars. She had to park her car at the local Walmart and we had to go and pick her up. Not happy with that. Overall a great house!!!"
Great for families
"Excellent proximity to Disney. Very clean."
Stort og veludstyret hus
"Selvom dele af huset kunne forekomme lidt slidt, så betød det ikke noget. Huset og området levede til fulde op til vores forventninger. Vores ene rejsefælle på 3 år nød den opvarmede pool, legerummet, legepladserne og fælles poolområde. Sjældent har vi oplevet et så godt udstyret hus."
"Steve and Sandy are great host. They’re always responsive and helpful. The house was amazing. My family enjoyed every bit of it. It had everything we needed, and the location was great."
"There was everything we needed & more! Steve & Sandy answered questions promptly. This house is so convenient to all the Disney attractions!"
Great family getaway
"This house was perfect for our family vacation! Just as pictured, great amenities, clean, and fully stocked! Driving to and from Disney was a breeze and really close. We look forward to staying here again."
"The property exceeded our expectations for features and location. I would highly recommend this property for families visiting the Orlando area. It has plenty of room with awesome amenities in both the house and the community."
Excellent house for kids
"Fantastic property with lots of little extras for families. We had a rough start to our vacation (flight delays), so having some things stocked in the house (toilet paper, soap, etc) was SO appreciated! Great kid gear that was in excellent condition, pool was perfect, and Steve and Sandy were great. Very close to Disney, too! We absolutely would stay here again."
Excellent Family Vacation
"Loved everything about the place!"
Perfect Rental Near Disney
"This was the perfect home for our recent trip to Disney. Close enough yet far enough it didn't seem like we were in the hustle and bustle. The home was very clean and had most everything we needed. Only thing is that I wish it would have had a Christmas tree but we made do and my girls didn't seem to mind. The neighborhood is beautiful and very safe feeling. It has a really nice water park and we loved the pool and hot tub in our backyard. Steve and Sandy were awesome communicators! Cannot wait to visit again!"
Best vacation ever
"This property was very clean, espaçosos, and well stocked. I appreciate that you provided laundry detergent, dish detergent, cleaning supplies, and garbage bags. We didn’t use that much but it was nice that it was available. Thank you for also offering pool heat and propane for the grill at no extra cost. The baby gear came in usesful too for our little one. We couldn’t have had a more perfect place to stay. It was wonderful!"
Wonderful family trip
"We loved this house! Steve and Sandy were so great to work with, and super helpful and readily available if we needed to ask a question. The house has everything you may need. We cooked at home a lot and we’re thankful for a stocked kitchen with all the appliances and dishes etc. The baby equipped house was great so we didn’t have to bring additional items on the plane. The washer was acting up prior to our arrival (but still functional) so they arranged a brand new one to be delivered during our stay. Much appreciated, because with 4 kids there is a lot of laundry! Having the playground and clubhouse so close was great, we loved walking the neighborhood as well. House was clean and plenty of space for our family vacation with 8 adults and 4 kids. Kids loved the pool at the house as well. Getting to Disney was super easy and we loved how close the parks were. We will be returning for sure!"
A Great Choice!
"This home was everything it was advertised to be and we loved our time here. It was perfect for our family. The house has something for everyone with the pool and hot tub, sala de jogos, all of the things for babies. The location is perfect. We would definitely stay here again."
"We stayed at this property, for an extended family trip with grandparents, uncles, nieces and nephews. It was close to all the Disney parks. A great neighborhood, with a beautiful home. The kids loved playing in the game room, as well as the pool. The house had so much room for everyone to be together but still have their own space. Everyone had a great time and loved the house. Thank you again for a great vacation with wonderful memories shared."
Swimming and family time
"Awesome time in this beautiful resort and home loved all the amenities I.e. Piscina , Spa. The game room was our grandsons favorite and many Uno games were enjoyed by the whole family Very comfortable beds especially loved the 4 bathrooms and made it easier to get the fam ready Even though this wasn’t a Disney trip it was so close We’re planning next year around it overall amazing hosts very responsive and kind"
Fabulous Vacation House
"Spacious house loaded with amenities. Nice pool and hot tub was enjoyed by the whole family. Game room with foosball, pool table and air hockey. Very clean overall and very convenient to Disney. There was great communication and assistance from the owners. We would definitely return to this house on our next visit."
Perfect for kids
"We had a great stay. Close to Disney. Very well equipped for kids. One of the best stocked kitchens we have ever had. Would stay again."
Great House and Hosts
"Steve & Sandy were wonderful. Their communications were timely, and they provided all the details we needed to make it a great stay."
"It worked perfectly for our work retreat!"
Returned to a beautiful house
"My family returned for ten days to this beautiful house. We enjoyed our time at the house. There were 11 of us and it was just wonderful. The children ages 7 to 3 enjoyed the pool and the game room. We will be coming back in 2023 Steve and Sandy are wonderful hosts. They get right back to you if you have a question. The Fosters"
Perfect Disney home base
"We visited for Disney World’s 50th. Steve and Sandy were extremely responsive, kind and helpful. The house is great- we loved the pool in particular. So close to the parks that it is as convenient as taking monorail/gondola/bus/cab to your hotel, but with lots more room, a full kitchen (so quick and inexpensive breakfast), a great pool, and all at a better cost! We will certainly return."
Great for family of 14
"The house was perfect for 14, 8 grandkids and 6 adults. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. The private pool and hot tub were clean and everyone was able to enjoy them. Lots of toys and floats were provided. The owners provided everything you could need as far as cleanjng supplies whereas other houses we rented only provided starter packs. The owners were great when it came to communicating with them. They answered all questions and provided everything that was needed. Locations to Disneyp parks, Disney Springs and Universal were great! All within 30 minute drive. If you like to shop, there were plenty of outlets and mall near by. I would highly reccommend this house for anyone with a large family looking to have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation."
Excellent Stay! Highly recommend!
"Our stay was wonderful. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable & the pool fantastic!! Também, the property is so close to Disney & many shops:) The week was truly wonderful!"
"Steve and Sandy were excellent owners to work with. They answered all 0f our questions from the beginning of the process up until check out. The house was well maintained and very clean. It had everything we needed for a perfect family vacation. The salt water pool was fantastic my entire family enjoyed time at the pool. I would absolutely recommend this property and look forward to working with Steve and Sandy in the future."
Perfect home base for week at the parks!
"After looking at many listings on VRBO, this one kept coming back to me. I loved the full descriptions online and I people who rented reviews. It was all very accurate!"
"An absolute dream to stay at with our family. Perfect for everyone who stayed and plenty of room. Strongly recommend this property to stay in with your large family"
"The house was just as advertised, very convenient location to the them parks and within the community itself. We would come back!!"
"Everything about this vacation rental was on point... check-in, description of property, neighborhood, communication with owner. And the kitchen!! No need to eat out when you stay at the Villa by the Castle, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need. But, if you want to grab food out the choices close by are numerous!! Will definitely be back!"
Family vacation and Basketball tournament
"We were in town for an AAU national basketball tournament which we also turned into a family vacation. We traveled with 10 adults and one teenager. The house was spacious, clean, and very inviting. Sandy and Steve were amazing with their response time and instructions. We were so relaxed it felt like a home away from home. The Lanai was definitely our favorite spot in the house. We will absolutely return to Villa by the Castle and recommend it to anyone we know who may be traveling to Orlando!"
It all was great!
"The location was great, the house was large enough so we didn’t feel like we were on to of each other (3, 6, 8, 12,13 yr olds and 7 adults), There was so many activities we could do in the house and then there was the pool! We were there for 6 days but could have stayed a month and not gotten bored."
Excellent experience from beginning to end
"Thank you to Steve and Sandy for going above and beyond with this truly great rental property. Their communication was fabulous, o "extras" throughout the house were just as promised (and just what we needed to help with the 3 young kids we had in the house), and everything was clean and organized. Best rental experience I've had yet!"
Nice family getaway
"We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a quick trip but having the pool, game room and space was great! We didn’t even get a chance to use the club house amenities and didn’t feel that we missed out. The added touch of access to a baby gate, bed rails and baby monitor made me feel more at ease with a toddler in the home too."
Annual Family Vacation
"The house was perfect for our family of 13, lots of items for 18mo old, kids 4-8 adored the game room and pool & hot tub was enjoyed by parents , grandparents and kids. We ordered food in a couple of nights and the local restaurants were great having all orders quick and correct. Plenty of pool towels available, lots of extras to meet all needs and comforts of home. Community pool was fabulous and all community staff was friendly. I would definitely recommend this property to all."
"Awesome experience..house had more than enough room...quiet community with lots of activities for the kids."
"I would like to thank Steve and Sandy for an awesome time! The property was as described and more. I had a small issue with the grill and the response was addressed quickly. The property met all our needs. Will be recommended to others and we will be back!"
Great short Disney vacation
"Great customer service. Just as advertised. Steve and Sandy were great to work with"
Celebration of Gran being cancer free
"We loved our stay in this home. It had everything we needed and the grandkids loved playing in the pool and game room."
Great Stay at Off-Disney Property
"Really good spot for a family to say who wants to go to Disney but doesnt want to stay on Disney property. Very close (under 15 min) drive to all the Disney resorts. The house is big, clean and nice. Great pool/hot tub. The community pool is fun too. This is well managed and the owners are great at communicating and preparing you for your trip. Highly recommend."
"We truly had the best time in this wonderful home. From the game room, to the private pool and hot tub, the fully stocked kitchen, the comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, the location, the gracious hosts that were perfectly communicative, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience!"
"This property literally had everything we needed. The owners thought of EVERYTHING and i mean EVERYTHING! The owners of the property were a pleasure to work with and they even checked on us while we there. The amenities at the resort was top notch too! We will definitely be back! Thanks Steve and Sandy!"
"Had a wonderful week at the property. Owners were very prompt with communication. The amount of toddler and baby stuff on site was wonderful. Would highly recommend for a family."
"This was the best house we have ever stayed in. We had everything we needed and then some. We would stay here again for sure!!!"
Our favorite house on VRBO
"We love this house and location of this house to everything, WDW and a Walmart just down the rode . We stayed here in 2016 and will be back again ! This house is always clean and quiet . We have never had a problems at this property and the swimming pool is treated with saltwater as a plus . Thanks again to the owners Sandy and Steve"
Fantastic house and community!
"We totally enjoyed our spring break stay here! The pool and hot tub were well maintained, the house was immaculate... and exactly as pictured. Even our dogs adjusted great to being there cause it was so homey. Something of great importance to our family..the protective removable fence to keep a two year old safe when not using the pool was a great thing to have. A well stocked kitchen with plenty of plates and utensils. The only thing we can recommend is booking any reservations for restaurants in advance or you may not get in! We were there spring break and they may have had a lot to do with it. The entire community is well maintained and the kids all enjoyed the the main pool with the slides. The response from the owners was almost immediate to any questions we had. They were beyond gracious and helpful. Do not hesitate to book this house....absolutely great family vacation with little ones and our pets."
Perfect Home for Family Vacation
"We just spent over a week in this wonderful home. It is perfect for a family vacation to Disney or other close by attractions. Windsor Hill has lots of amenities and the water park is very nice but our grand children really enjoyed coming home each day to the private pool and spa at Villa by the Castle. When not experiencing Disney, we spent lots of time swimming, playing games and relaxing on the lanai. We went to each of the parks and the drive was so short. It was awesome having the well stocked kitchen and grill for meals. Steve and Sandy have anticipated all of the things you need in a temporary home to have a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We are looking forward to another visit in the future."
"This is a perfect home for a family, plenty of room in the house. Pool was fine for four families to use, with 6 kids from 1-10. The location is perfect with a short walk to water park/community pool and there was a park for the younger children one block away and a park with tennis, basketball and volleyball for older kids and adults a couple blocks away. The house had everything we needed for a wonderful week. Planning on coming again next year."
This was the perfect getaway for our family.
"We wanted a place that our big family could enjoy while also exploring Florida. The big house and indoor pool gave us plenty of space for our group of 11, with 4 little ones, to not only spread out but also enjoy precious time together. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and the kids loved the rec room. We also made multiple trips to Cocoa Beach for awesome beach time and deep sea fishing just an hour drive away. Overall the house was amazing, the location was great and the homeowners had great communication. We will hopefully be back!!"
Great Disney and Universal location
"Loved our stay. This property was perfectly situated for Disney and Universal. We usually stay on Disney properties, but decided to stay off property this time. This gated community property was perfect for our family. Spacious with all the amenities made this a perfect 2 week stay. The owners are “Johnny on the spot” when answering questions and needing info. Obrigado"
"House was very clean and owners were great with communicating. Would definitely rent this house again."
5 Star Home Away from Home!
"This home and the neighborhood was very inviting and friendly. Our family enjoyed the separate rooms and spacious living and kitchen space. The game room and pool were an added bonus. The owner(s) were very receptive and friendly - excellent hosts. We were provided with all the information to answer any questions and feel welcome. We will definitely book this home next time we travel to the Kissimmee area."
"Would rent this again for sure! The attention to detail was amazing!"
Fabulous property and Hosts!
"If I could give them 6 stars for communication I would! Steve & Sandy were wonderful hosts and anytime we needed anything they were on it! The property itself was spacious and very clean. Loved having the pool and hot tub! They even accommodated our 2 big dogs and loved having the sidewalks in the neighborhood to walk them. I even walked them at night and felt totally safe. The resort amenities were fun for the kids. We loved everything about this place and will definitely keep it in mind for the future! Thanks again!"
Great family vacation!
"This home was a great choice for our Florida vacation! Nós ( family of four - kids 3, 5) stayed for a week at the Villa by the Castle with friends (family of 5 - infant and two kids 3, 5). The layout was perfect, with enough bedrooms upstairs for everyone, plus an extra downstairs that the kids used as a "movie room" while the parents relaxed in the main livingroom/kitchen area. The best part of this house was the pool. The pool deck is large and there were lots of pool toys/floats for the kids to use. The outside fan worked really well and gave a nice breeze. The kids did not want to leave the pool to do anything all week, they had a blast playing together which made for a perfect relaxing vacation for the adults. We did venture out however, we used the castle playground, resort pool (kids loved the water slide and splash pad), and the resort shop for snacks. The resort location is also very close to Disney, Downtown Disney, fazer compras, outlets and restaurants. The weather called for thunderstorms everyday, which most days did happen but only in the late afternoon lasting only 20 mins- an hour. It was +30 degrees everyday and a wonderful break from our long Canadian winter. There were only a few small "bumps"...we didn't realize the propane for the BBQ was an extra charge (but only $35) and had to be ordered in advance. Once we called the management company it took a day to receive the tank. Use of the BBQ, however, was complimentary and that isn't the case with all rentals. Also the pool heater was not working properly, when we arrived it was too warm to swim in. This was fixed and the pool was perfect. Também, by the end of the week the pool needed to be cleaned (maybe an issue with the filter?). We called the management company and they showed up minutes later and we were able to use the pool later that day. Overall it was a great vacation home...very clean, updated and family friendly. The owners were a pleasure to work with during the reservation process and checked in with us several times during our trip. We would definitely recommend this home to family and friends."
"We very much appreciated the responsiveness of the hosts. Anytime we had any questions, they immediately responded and were very helpful. Além disso, the house was very clean and all of the games were working and the pool and hot tub were well heated."
Very nice stay
"Loved that the kitchen had all appliances to cook meals. Pans were non-stick! Communication with the owners was great. The hot tub was not working well when we arrived. The technician was out that day to fix the issue. Nice gated community. Would definitely recommend to others."
"This house was the perfect place for our family of 10. Very spacious and comfortable! We all enjoyed the game room, and the children especially loved the pool! The location is great-just a 10 minute drive to Disney parks. The owners communication was excellent. We appreciated the helpful recommendations. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!"
Great House in good location!
"The house had all we needed for our winter getaway! Plenty of room and having 4 king beds was great! Kitchen was fully stocked with all you could want! Pool looked nice, but it was a bit cool when we were there, so it didn't get used. Very close to Disney properties which was great! Fantastic communication from the owners every step of the way!"
"This property has everything a family needs. You feel like you are home! The home is spacious, organized and having the extra bathrooms is a huge plus for large groups! Will definitely return!!"
Best place for family gatherings.
"Very Spacious for a family of 14. Also really close to the community activities. Kids loved the pool and game room. Definitely will visit this home again."
Great Orlando/Kissimmee location
"This house was a fantastic base for a much-needed end-of-2020 family vacation. The location is perfect for beach days to the Atlantic or the Gulf, swimming with manatees, and the theme parks in Orlando. There was plenty of space to hang-out, there were enough bedrooms with king beds for all the adults in our group. A piscina, Banheira, and especially the grill all got used often. Communication with the hosts was always helpful and very responsive. Geral, this was a very nice vacation rental."
Our Family Vacation
"The property was very clean, espaçosos, warm and inviting and was able to accommodate our family. The Club House, Lagoon Pool and Market was so convenient and minutes away. We were so pleased that the cribs, cadeiras altas, carrinhos de bebê, toys etc. were brand new and provided for our use. All the comforts of home, there to enjoy. The dishes, utensils, pots and pans were high quality which we put to good use making delicious meals. Our treasured family time will be remembered for years to come."
Amazing property and can't beat the location!
"First impression - the property is even nicer in person than the pictures online. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The home owners were very accommodating. We had an issue with the internet once and they got back to us within 5 minutes with a solution. We have 2 kids under 3 and the owners provided us with the use of 2 pack n plays, a high chair, a stroller, um monitor de bebê, an exersaucer and small wooden crib, which made packing and travelling much easier on us. My grandmother and her friend also stayed with us, so it was nice having a bedroom and bath on the ground level for those that might have a hard time with stairs. You can't beat the location - it's a short drive to Disney and a very short walk within Windsor Hills to get to the club house. Our son really enjoyed the splash pad and walk-in pool at the club house. The playground, which is right around the corner, was also great. Since we have 2 small kids we rarely ate out and everything we needed to cooks meals (besides the food) was provided and clean. We will definitely stay here again!"
"Great place, can't think of anything that would make it any better!!! Location was great for Disney, but neighborhood was quiet and relaxing!! Home was beautiful, beds were very nice and it had everything we needed for our toddlers to teenagers! Would definitely recommend to anyone"
Excellent House and Location
"This house was a pure delight. It was very clean, the game room is air conditioned, TV's were excellent, and the customer service was excellent. The short cut the owners provided to Disney were excellent, and anytime I had a question, they responded instantly. There is no need for our family to look further, any time we come to Orlando, we now know where we will stay. This place was everything we wanted and the location was perfect!!!"
Perfect Home for the Perfect Vacation
"This home was everything described and more! We were a group of 9 (6 adults, 3 kids). The space and amenities really made everyone feel at home. Everything we needed and wanted was there for us. The kids were able to enjoy the new game room and pool (the adults did too). The huge TV was perfect for enjoying movies and the Stanley Cup Final! And anyone could sneak off to their own room for their own peace and quiet. This is a perfect location for Disney World and was close to shopping, other attractions and hot spots in the Orlando and Kissimmee areas. We would absolutely recommend this home and plan to return ourselves! A true home away from home!"
Beautiful, quiet, clean and relaxing!
"The house was exactly as shown and described. We loved having the pool and being literally 5-10 minutes away from Disney. The owners, Steve e Sandy, and the management company responded very fast to all inquiries and were a pleasure. We really felt like we were home. Many stores and restaurants were less than 10 minutes away. Google maps gave precise turn-by-turn directions. Loved every minute of our stay! Thank you Steve and Sandy!"
"The house was perfect for us and had everything we needed for our stay. We had two families with a total of 4 adults and 8 kids. Everyone had a bed (and crib for the smallest) to sleep in. The kitchen had everything we required and more. It took us a while to figure out the pool/hot tub heating but with the help of the owner we had it running properly. The house was awesome and the location was in close proximity to the theme parks. The owners were always quick to respond to my emails/inquiries. I would recommend this house to anyone."
Great for the Family
"We loved staying at Villa by the Castle. It provided so much space for us and was very clean. There were so many activities that our kids loved including the awesome game room and pool toys. The game systems in the bedrooms were also a big hit with the kids. We had an issue with the Wi-Fi, but the owner responded very quickly and guided us through some troubleshooting that took very little time. The ceiling fans were also really nice. The one on the back porch made early October weather very bearable, and the ones in the bedrooms provided a nice white noise to help us sleep."
Outstanding Week at Windsor Estates.
"Steve e Sandy: Thank you so much for offering your home. There were 9 of us on vacation and the house was perfect. It was large enough for us not to be on top of each other. Everyone had their own TV and Games in their bedrooms and your new game room was beautiful and lots of fun. The first day on vacation we stayed home and went to the big pool slide. We swam in the pool for hours and had a BBQ's on deck. The property was clean and maintained extremely well and fully stocked with every amenity you could possible need. The description of the property was exactly what we saw online and the furnishings in home were very comfortable. Na verdade, once we got home I text my son to see if he slept well in his own bed and he asked me to find out what was the brand name of your mattress because he wants one! We noticed our pool area was a little larger which was nice. The location of your property could not have been any better. We went to 5 parks all together. The three Disney Parks were a few miles away and Universal and SeaWorld were very close as well. That helps not to have to drive a long time after a long day. Next time we will do one less park because the kids just wanted to stay at the house! We have already recommended to my family and friends that they have to stay at your home! When we do this again we will definitely be staying with you!"
Top notch home!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa By The Castle. The home was beautiful and well equipped. The pictures do not tell the full story. The Windsor Hills property was lovely and well maintained. The only recommendation I have is if there were more towels, clothes and sheets. We brought extras with us and just took advantage of the nice washer and dryer. The owners provided great customer service and were quick to respond to questions. We ventured out only a little to the outlets and Ripley's as we found just as much enjoyment at the pool, sala de jogos, movies, playground and the clubhouse. This vacation rental was worth the money!!!"
Perfect family home with a fantastic location for the kids
"Noel B. The house is exactly as described within the listing and it provided our family with everything it needed to make a wonderful vacation. The location within the complex is very convenient for children in that it is a 2 minute walk to the playground or the large shared pool/clubhouse. Steve and Sandy were extremely pleasant to deal with and helped with any questions we had. In terms of the house itself, beautiful and spacious. Very clean upon arrival, has everything you would need for small children (pack and plays, cadeiras altas, night lights) and the layout itself is great for multiple families. The only downside to the home was that I had a hard time coming back to my own 40" TV after watching the 70" home here. Geral, excellent home and I would stay again in a second!"
A great house
"We could not have asked a better place to stay for our vacation. The house is well equipped with everything you need and more. The game room and pool was a great hit for the kids and adults. We had 10 people in the house and there was never a time we felt crowded. The resort is close to all parks and amenities. The owners are so accommodating and always very quick to response to our questions. I would definitely rent this villa again for our next trip! Thank you so much Steve and Sandy for your wonderful vacation home!"
"Property was great! Very close to Disney World as described. Clean, well equipped and owners were very accommodating for our early arrival. We grilled steaks on the gas grill the first night which was nice. The boys enjoyed the game room and clubhouse as well. Would definitely rent again."
Great Time !!!
"House is huge. Is everything the website says and more. Close to 192 and Disney Parks. Had a great stay will book again."
Superb, spacious well-equipped villa
"Windsor Hills is a gated community with centralised facilities such as pool, sports facilities and club house. The villa is within easy access of many good eateries and travelling distance to Disney/Universal parks and Kissimee Old Town. The villa is spacious, very well-equipped and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here spending lots of time in the pool, games room and having family time in the main living room. The males in the group really enjoyed the 70" TV and x-box. Would not hesitate to recommend to others."
Perfect Family Vacation!
"The house was absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. This home is in a great location (5 mins away from Disney gates). The home was exactly as pictured and described with plenty of room for our family. We really enjoyed the game room after a long day at the parks. Thank you Steve and Sandy for sharing your home!!!!"
It's the little things!!!
"All the little things stocked in this home made our stay one of the best rental homes out of the dozen we have tried. When we hit terrible traffic causing a super late arrival, the owner surprised us with all we needed to have a great breakfast. In addition to having a waffle iron, coffee maker w mesh filter, great pots and pans they provided all the little things that add up financially. ( dish soap, dishwasher detergent, etc). In addition they had 2 xboxes, a TV in every room, 2 awesome strollers, games and anything else you might need. Lastly, the mattresses were fantastic! The hosts were very accommodating and we look forward to returning next year. The only thing I would request would be some serious curtains in the master in addition to the current blinds because the afternoon sun does a number on the temperature in the master bedroom. Por sorte, the ceiling fan worked well and cooled it off quickly."
Great house especially for families.
"We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The owners were easy to work with and very thoughtful with the furnishings in their home. The private pool and hot tub was the highlight for us. As a bonus, this gated community has a great play area for children a nice community swimming pool with a water slide, and a workout facility. Thank you for a great stay Sandy and Steve! We hope to return."
Great house in a terrific location
"We were 6 guys on a golf trip to Florida in January and the house was great. It is in a great location to get to Orlando, Disney and the golf in the area. There are tons of restaurants nearby for those who don't want to cook. The house is the perfect size for 6 guys on a golf trip. It would be tight for 8 as two of the rooms with twin beds are not very big. The The kitchen/ eating/ living area was nice size as well. Not too big and not cramped. We did have some issues with the water as the hot water heater was not functioning properly and the pool/spa heater was out for most of the week. The owners were incredibly responsive and had technicians at the house every day to fix the problems. I would guess that house will not have a problem with the hot water and the pool/spa for a long time. I would definitely recommend the house to visitors to Disney and the area."
"Words can't describe our trip and stay at your marvelous home. All we could do is simply admire how nice this home away from home was!! From driving into Windsor Hills to the home and entering!!! We wasn't ready to leave!!!! My boys was saying I wish we had a home with all the bedrooms and baths!!! We will return to your home again next time. I'm keeping all of your contact information and sharing with friends and family !!! Thanks so much for allowing us that opportunity!!"
Could not have asked for a better place to stay!
"We could not have been happier with our stay at the Villa by the Castle! From before we arrived and through our entire stay everything was top notch. We had our whole family of 13 (11 adults and 2 kids - ages 5 and 2) and we never felt like we were on top of one another or lacking space. The house is close to everything that you will want to do so you are not wasting your vacation time driving to and from the different attractions. The owners are very receptive and respond promptly so you never feel like you are waiting on a management company to get back to you if you have questions or need anything. The house is stocked well for kids and the pool area is just beautiful. We would definitely recommend this rental to friends; in fact, we already have and are trying to put together a return trip with friends for 2017. Thank you for providing a worry free vacation home!"
Perfect for Large Families
"Our stay in this home was great for our large family. 5 kids (10 months-14), parents & both sets of grandparents all had plenty of room to relax & unwind after Disney. Our trip was only to Disneyworld for our time there. 5 minutes tops to get the start of the Disney property. 15 minutes to reach the Magic Kingdom (furthest park from this house). We were greeted with a wonderful welcome package of basic supplies when we gained access to the home. The home is showing its continual use and the management company could do a better job with maintenance/cleaning. All of the little things we noticed we let the owners know & they were very receptive & appreciated the feedback. We were a 5 minute (max) walk to the clubhouse/pool/game room. It was nice to let the bigger kids go explore on their own but know they weren't really far away. The game room in the home was awesome. If the kids weren't in the pool they were in the game room. Even things for the baby to play with safely! For those with little ones you need to bring absolutely no baby gear. Two strollers, 1 crib & at least 1, maybe 2, pack-n-plays, 3 high chairs, TONS of plastic cups & plates. We chose to eat our meals out of Disney to save money & this kitchen had plenty of supplies. Definitely do the pre-registration. It makes it much easier at the gate getting your pass. Would definitely recommend this home for a large family or multiple families. Some suggestions are to bring AA batteries in case the remotes die. Also go to Publix or Super Target (to the west) for real groceries. The small stores close to Windsor Hills are convenience stores on steroids. If you're planning a trip to Disneyworld with a large group & aren't wanting to stay at the Disney Resorts check out Windsor Hills and this house."
Best vacation home in Florida
"We arrived on June 2 to a beautiful, well kept home. We have been renting homes every year for 17 years and this one had the most comfortable beds!!! After a long day of shopping or at the parks it's nice to have a comfortable bed to sleep in. They address any issues right away and resolve them. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home. We will be renting again!"
Comfortable, spacious and secure villa
"Our family of 10 adults spent two weeks here in May. The location of the villa is very good for visiting the theme parks. There are a range of shops and restaurants a short drive away. Make sure you visit the Longhorn Steakhouse for an excellent meal. Security of the development is first class, with a 24/7 staffed gatehouse. The whole complex is immaculately maintained and the villa is very comfortable. Wifi is fast and reliable. The kitchen is well equipped with every possible item you will need for your stay. The pool is a good size and gets plenty of sun in the morning. The games room was a hit with a full sized pool table and foosball table. Excellent air conditioning and plenty of hot water for all four bathrooms. The owners, Steve and Sandy were easily contactable by email and sorted any queries promptly. This is the best villa we have stayed in and is well worth the rental price."
a wonderful vacation home close to Disney and very attentive owners!
"My entire family enjoyed this wonderful home over spring break. Ages 2-74..11 of us total. It was great to leave the hectic parks and return to the serenity of our own pool and home. The home was very clean and spacious. Our kids enjoyed the resort pool too and it was just a short walk. The owners were wonderful to work with and always quick to respond to our questions. There was an issue with the pool temperature and they quickly sent someone to check it out. I cannot say enough about how great they were. The kids loved the game room and we enjoyed having our own bedrooms. Plenty of space to unwind! If we ever get back to Florida, I'll definitely stay here! Thank you Steve and Sandy!"
Perfect spot for large family vacation!
"From the moment I sent an email inquiring about availability, to the time we checked out, Steve and Sandy were welcoming, responsive, and helpful. Their thorough instructions and preparations prior to check-in anticipated our every need. Their home was clean, welcoming, and perfectly accommodated our group of 11, including three boys, ages 2-10. The kids very much enjoyed the game room, Piscina, and the Mickey Mouse room, and there were bedroom/bathroom combination options that fit each of the adults' various needs. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals at home--a great way to save! In addition to enjoying family time at the home, we were in town to visit the Disney and Universal parks. The Disney parks were a short 5-7 minute drive each morning, and the Universal parks were about 20 minutes away. Very convenient. And a Super Target is also only a short drive away; great for groceries and all those little things that a busy traveler with kiddos might forget to pack. We had a few questions during our stay, and Steve and Sandy consistently responded within an hour (or less) of my sending an email. Can't thank them enough for such a great experience, and for helping to make our trip one we'll always remember fondly. If we're ever back in Orlando for any length of time, Villa by the Castle will be at the top of our list."
Beautiful Home with all the amenities!
"The house is huge and so well equipped with everything you need for a vacation. It was very nicely decorated and very clean and well maintained. The location was great. Close to parks and shopping. Owners were quick to respond with any questions. We would definitely recommend the home and would stay again."
"A lovely home, espaçosos, very comfortable, and clean. Wonderful facilities, Piscina, Spa, games room, PARA CHURRASCO, TVs in every room. We were a family of 14 and had lots of room to spread out. Thanks Steve and Sandy! Fred."
Beautiful Villa, Wonderful responsive owners
"We had a lovely experience during our stay at this Villa. We have rented many times via VRBO and this by far was the easiest, most enjoyable experience. Steve and Sandy were very responsive to any requests and quick to be of help if ever needed. The house is huge and has all the little extras included such as pool heat and grill use that a lot of other owners try and to nickel and dime you for... We even arrived to a welcome package including snacks and drinks to get us started at the house! It is unbelievably refreshing to have owners who value the customer experience like Steve and Sandy. The house was in great shape and had a gorgeous game room. The location is awesome within Windsor hills. We were a short walk from the main club house which was awesome for the kids. The check out process is by far the least complicated and stressful for the guest that we have experienced. This comes in very handy when you have an early flight and are trying to get out of the house at some ungodly hour with kids in tow. We could not offer a higher recommendation for this property and its owners! Looking forward to coming back next year!! Thank you for a fabulous stay!"
"The home was emaculate...The same as the photos showed. I received all information I needed to make my family vacation great. My children,grandchildren, and husband were happy and that is what I wanted Thanks"
"To summarize this stay in a word, "Perfect". Obrigado, thank you, thank you for a very nice stay at your home. Grandpa and Granny didn't get to join us this trip however, us and our five children really enjoyed our stay. It could not have been better. Your home is huge and laid out perfectly. The billion bedrooms and zillion bathrooms were perfect (per our kids). The beds were very comfortable and all of the little extras were very much appreciated. We didn't even use 3 of the bedrooms/bathrooms! This house would have been roomy for double our group +! Even though the weather was perfect our children did not want to go to Disney, they wanted to stay at the house and swim! We utilized the stroller, again perfect! Laundry and dish soap, trash bags and towels galore! Not every rental supplies those little things but, those little extras really make the stay that much more enjoyable (not to mention the little food welcome pack). Mais uma vez, just perfect! Keep doing what you are doing, it worked very well for us. Just minutes from Disney and we even made the 25 minute trip to Lego-Land one day. What a trip! Your house made it a fantastic one. We will never stay on Disney grounds again. See you next time! God bless you, Dan and Carmen"
Great alternative to staying in Disney
"We took a gamble, and it paid off. We had never stayed outside of Disney before. Now we will never go back to the cramped hotels, loud commotion and overpriced rooms. Our family of 4 had more room than we could handle (6 bedrooms!), which was great for relaxing and spreading out after long days at Disney. We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Windsor Hills. So much to offer and so little stress. Sandy and Steve were absolutely wonderful to deal with and helped us plan our trip well in advance and were always available via a quick email or phone call if needed. We enjoyed the pool off the back of the house, and actually never made it to the clubhouse and community pool/arcade...etc. until day 6 since we were more than satisfied just at home. I don't think we even made it into the game room because the kids never got out of the pool....... I highly recommend their home if you're looking for an option outside of Disney. So easy to get to all of the parks (and Sea World) from here, and tons of restaurant and entertainment options within just a few miles. Not a big deal to hit Disney for a few hours, come back and relax, and head back to Disney at night. We will definitely be back next time out to Disney. Thanks Sandy and Steve for a wonderful vacation."
Perfect for families! Clean and very well organized.
"This house was wonderful for our family of 6! Four kids under 7, and two adults, this was an absolute ideal location for our family. We had a great time in the pool and had all that we needed in the kitchen to make our meals. The owners are very thoughtful and even had a welcome package waiting for us. The grounds are secure. Very accommodating and close to major parks. Thank you Villa by the Castle, a direct quote from my son, "we are definitely coming back here!" Thank you again! Beautiful house, very well kept!"
Awesome Family Villa close to Disney
"We've been to Disney World many times but normally stay on the Disney grounds. Having our own Villa in a quiet location but so close to Disney was the perfect way to start and finish each day. It felt like home. Steve and Sandy were the best and replied to any question or need we had within minutes, both before and during our stay. We traveled with our son, his wife and their two children (4&6). We enjoyed the pool at the house and spent 2 days hanging around the community pool, which was very large and had a slide and concession stand, plus 5 days at different Disney parks. I enjoyed the days at the pool as much as the time at Disney World. The house was huge, there were plenty of games and videos to keep everyone entertained and we enjoyed playing pool and air hockey in the completely finished and air conditioned game room (garage). The house was fully furnished with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils, and they even had strollers. The welcome package was a nice touch too. Our 3 other kids and their families can't wait to come and stay at this Villa too. Awesome place and great owners who sincerely want you to have an exceptional vacation."
Best Family Vacation Ever!!
"This home is awesome! Steve & Sandy are awesome! My first family vacation, took the kids & grandkids and we had such a good time, Hurricane and all 🙂 I appreciated Steve & Sandy's quick responses, this made the planning portion of the trip less stressful. They had everything listed and ready for us. Not only before our trip but during, as they checked in on us when the news was full of the Hurricane weather and they advised us where to go for safety and had flashlights dropped off in the event of a power outage. They take care of their guests truly from beginning to end! Home was clean, spacious and close to all attractions. I hope I can come back again some day!! I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a home away from home for a family get away! Thank you Steve & Sandy for opening up your home to us."
Clean and well maintained in fabulous location close to everything!
"We were a group of 12 with 6 kids. Everyone had their own space and the boys enjoyed the Xbox! We had plenty of room for preparing meals and sitting areas. Steve and Sandy were amazing with answering questions promptly and informative. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to Orlando with family to book this property. Thanks again Steve and Sandy! The Petrick and Rowe families."
Superb Vacation Home
"A+++ in every regard. The house looks great in the photos, but it's even better in person. Nice high-end appliances, nice (and big) gas grill and everything you else you might want. Communication with the owners couldn't have been better. I highly recommend renting this home."
Home away from home!
"This home has all the comforts of home and then some. Spacious and beautifully decorated, yet kid friendly with game room and heated pool. Também, very close to the theme parks. Bonus, clubhouse with heated community pool, large slide and other activities (within walking distance). Owners were very easy to work with and responded almost immediately with answers to all of our concerns. Definitely will be returning and highly recommend this home."
Fantastic villa, very helpful owners. Have already rebooked!
"Loved our stay. The villa is well fitted out with TVs, consoles and gadgets. Owners were helpful and responsive to questions that we had. We have already rebooked to stay again in the summer."
Everyone Was Happy!
"Perfect house. If you are agonizing on selecting a property (like I was) then pick this one now. The owners, Steve e Sandy, have gone to great lengths to make sure guests have everything needed for a delightful stay. I mean everything. We had a group of 8 with ages between 82 and 17 and everyone was happy with all the house had to offer. I slept in the master bedroom and I slept like a rock (I track my sleep and I got way more deep sleep than normal!). Everyone was very comfortable with the beds. It was very nice that there were 2 bedrooms with King beds, which is hard to find. The pool was enjoyed by all. My daughter and I used the clubhouse pool only once but it was very nice too. The best thing is that we could go to Disney parks and come home and take a very comfortable break and then some could easily go back. We were really visiting to celebrate my nephew's graduate degree from Florida Tech and it will be a week that we will always remember. My wife missed this trip but I plan to bring her back and stay at this house again. Many thanks to Steve and Sandy for the great communication and thoughtfulness for making our stay a delight. --Joe Schenk"
Clean, spacious with a lovely warm pool and hot tub.
"What a wonderful escape. Steve and Sandy thanks for a fabulous stay. The villa was clean. The pool was warm and the kitchen well stocked with a variety of cooking equipment. This was our second stay in the Windsor hills community and definitely our favourite! We hope to return again!"
Weekend Trip With Cheer Moms
"We had a great time in a lovely, well kept home. Thank you for thinking of everything!"
Home away from home
"This was a wonderful experience. The home was better than we expected. I am already recommending this place to friends and family that will be going to Florida. The attention to detail in this home was excellent. The home is very guest orientated. Everything thing including instructions were laid out for the home. There was so much to do just in the home with out going outside. We were entertained the entire duration of our week stay. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will be renting this home again. A huge point to me was the excellent communication from the owners. I have rented other properties where you cannot get ahold of the owners for anything. That was not the case here. The owners left us a nice welcome package and checked in with us before, during our arrival, our stay, and departure to make sure all our needs were satisfied. 5 stars all the way. Thanks Steve and Sandy!!!"
Spacious and comfortable, very close to WDW
"We had a young family of 5(kids age's-1,3,5) 2 sets of grandparents and one aunt. Everyone has their own room and space. The house never felt crowded and had everything we could have needed. Baby monitor, crib, pack and play, extra strollers, trash bags, laundry detergent pods etc. It made our stay very comfortable. The owners are great and checked in to see if we had everything we needed. We will book this one again! Obrigado!!"
The owners thought of everything! Very family friendly.
"Plenty of room for our active family of 10. Papa and Mimi had a bedroom on the main floor. The two sets of parents had the TWO master bedrooms and the cousins enjoyed the Mickey Mouse Bedroom and the flower bedroom. Each had their own twin bed! We used the pool And hot tub at least three times a day! This property also enjoys a resort style community pool with an awesome slide that the five year old was tall enough to use. This same five year old was glued to the x-box. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and dishes. There are even pool towels! We will recommend this property to our friends."
The house is cozy and comfortable! Felt like home.
"We arrived to the most wonderful welcome package! There were a couple of issues right off the bat, but Steve and Sandybtiok care of it immediately. The kitchen is fully stocked, the pool towels are soft and thick and the pool itself is so warm!! We loved the big, modern TVs in each room and the perfect location so close to the club house. This was our fifth year at Windsor Hills and by far our favorite house!"
Great place for staying near parks and having worry free vacation with family
"Very well maintained, spacious and has everything big family needs, owners are super responsive. We all loved it!!! Will consider booking againg during next visit."
"The house was beautiful and had plenty of room for all ten of my family members. The owners were wonderful and responded very quickly to all of my questions. I really don't think that anything could have gone better. The owners Steve and Sandy even sent a little welcome delivery of groceries. I would highly recommend renting this house. Thank you for helping us make this a wonderful trip and some really great memories. -Shannan Vital"
Wonderful villa and owners so helpful!
"The villa was well equipped and clean and the owners are quick to help with any questions and resolve any issues. Will definitely stay again!"
Very clean, great location to the pool and basketball courts, very nicely appointed and well stocked
"A great house with fantastic owners who were very attentative. They had fresh flowers and a starter pack of milk, bacon eggs, bottle of wine etc. The home is very well maintained and even better than the photos. Big tv's in each room with gaming systems for the kids. Air conditioned game room with carpet- a plus. Nice outdoor furniture with great loungers. Fantastic like new grill with extra gas tank ready to use. Plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware and an awesome washer and dryer."
"Villa by the Castle is a beautiful home! Very spacious, it has all the amenities you could want. Steve and Sandy will usually reply to your emails within 15 minutes. The house is so close to all the parks! We had a great family vacation and can't wait to do it again!"
Belíssima propriedade em localização ideal!
"De check-in para check-out muito bem organizados e complicações. Resposta rápida aos inquéritos. Extremely thoughtful owners that go over and above."
"Stayed here for three weeks and it was just fantastic there were eight of us and we had plenty of room don't think we even used the downstairs bedroom. The Villa had everything we could possible want and there were no hidden charges for anything. Pool and hot tub were well used and was an excellent addition to the Villa. The games room came in handy during the rain storms. The Villa's location in Windsor Hills was great as it was close to everything we wanted to visit, all the Disney Parks and lovely restaurants.We would have no hesitation in recommended this Villa and look forward to returning in a few years time."
Second stay and the house was as fantastic as the first. Look forward to returning in the future.
"Looked after our every need."
Wonderful house for family vacation
"This house has everything you can ask for. Kids love the decor and all the games in the game room. Adults love the T.V entertainment with all the Netflix movies. We all enjoyed the heated pool. Definitely recommended to all my friends and family. It is so close to all the park attraction. The owner is very nice and response our request within minutes. We have total 11 people stayed in this house and feel so spacious. Overall we love this house and looking forward to stay again next time."
Great family get together spot
"This house allowed us to enjoy each others company, yet have enough room to have quiet time. Everyone loved the pool and hot tub, whether it was early in the morning or later after a day at Disney. There were plenty of bedrooms and baths so we all had our own space. The location was great so we were not spending a lot of time getting to and from the attractions. The weather was even good so what more could we ask."
Perfect accommodations and ideal location
"Safe, conveniently located from Disney and universal. Clean, spacious and great lay-out for two families of six each. Enjoyed private pool/hot tub and also the community pool. Owners were quick to respond to inquiries."
Everything you need and great location!
"This is a beautiful home with everything you need to have a great vacation! The location is great and the pool was so much fun after a long Florida day. The pool at the clubhouse is so close and everyone there is so friendly. The homeowners kept in touch throughout our stay and we will be back for sure!!!!"
Our stay at this home
"We had no issues , house was very cleaned and more than enough room for 4 adults and 2 children . A safe place to stay while on 1.5 miles from Disneyworld ."
the devennie family's stay at villa by the castle daulby street
"it was a very pleasant 2 weeks in florida the weather was great and the villa was absolutely superb we couldn't have asked for better also the cooperation and understanding from steph and steve was unbeatable all in all a wonderful time was had by all if i was coming back to florida i would certainly come back to steph and steve's and reccommend them and their villa to anyone all the best to them and our warmest thanks ronnie devennie and family"
Wouldn't stay any other place!
"This house was perfect! We had multiple families with us for vacation. Everyone had their own room and bathroom. It made our stay more enjoyable than if we would of had to share hotel rooms. The hospitality here is unbeatable. We can't wait to come back again. It is conveniently located to Disney World, grocery stores, and great places to eat. Highly recommend!!!"
This is THEE house to stay!! So close to Disney!!
"This home could not have been more comfortable and cozy. We had everything we needed for 2 families staying together. The layout was perfect and we had all the amenities we needed and wanted. The beds were comfy and the use of house towels and linens really made it simple. The kitchen had everything we needed to enjoy a home cooked thanksgiving day dinner. The 7+ of us actually fit on the family room sectional for movie night (Swiss Family Robinson) which included popcorn. The pool and hot tub just made this home even better. Long days at Disney, the hot tub was a great way to relax and soothe sore feet. Sandy and Steve even checked in on us, which was very hospitable. We will absolutely come back to this house for our next family trip! Obrigado!!"
Perfect House !!!
"My 3rd time staying in Windsor Hills and we love it. This house was largest we have stayed in and it worked perfect. A piscina, Spa, and game room were awesome. We had 3 families of 4 and the set up works great. Plenty of room and plenty of amenities. The proximity of the house to the main clubhouse is great too. Steve and Sandy are great owners and really make sure their guests have what they need. The house was better than expected. Thank you will stay again for sure.."
Beautiful home, perfect location, owners met all
"Home was perfectly located in Windsor Hills, short walk to community pool and playground. Short drive to Disney parks, many restaurants and supermarket. Home was clean and beautiful, accomodated our family of 10 adults 3 children and 2 children under age 2. Owners provided excellent customer service, perfect home for our vacation."
"Great house, helpful owners! Great experience!"
The perfect house for 4 families. Had everything we needed.
"Você não vai se arrepender de ficar aqui. Esta casa tinha tudo o que você poderia precisar, Além do fato de, os proprietários foram muito confortáveis e foram acima e além para nos fazer sentir bem-vindo (Bem-vindo a pacote de starter kit e comida). Nós recomendaríamos altamente esta casa para as suas férias Disney (muito perto)."
What a great home!
"Could not have been more pleased! The house made our trip more enjoyable. Super clean unlike most rental homes we've stayed at."
We really enjoyed our stay the house was great
"The property was wonderful very clean"
Amazing home...super close to Walt Disney World.
"My family of 12 stayed here the week before Christmas. Steve and Sandy had the home arranged perfectly and they even had a kind surprise waiting on us. Check in was very easy. The home was impeccable. Our kids loved the pool. Checkout was also flawless (no crazy cleaning list to complete when you’re exhausted from a week at the parks)! When we visit WDW again, we’ll definitely be sure to plan enough in advance to reserve this home again. Thank you for being a part of our wonderful week."
"We arrived to discover the fridge thoughtfully stocked with milk, orange juice, Cerveja, bottled water, a carton of eggs, a package of bacon and other sundries. There was also a bag of fresh ground coffee, a loaf of bread, a box of cereal and a welcoming bottle of wine on the counter. We've rented a lot of houses, but have never before been greeted with such generous hospitality. A family could arrive late and not have to immediately run to the grocery store for breakfast foods. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds comfortable and the pool heated (it was 50 degrees outside). Adults and kids LOVED the air hockey and pool tables. We also really appreciated the heavy duty stroller which we served us well at Magic Kingdom. The book of instructions covered everything we needed to know. Our only improvement suggestion is to provide more paper goods. We ran short of paper towels, Kleenex and toilet tissue. Kudos to Sandy and Steve for making our home away from home so very homey! Obrigado!"
Warm and inviting
"everything better than advertised! Not so perfect that you are afraid the kids might wreck something, but nice - warm and inviting. Amenities were perfect. Best family vacation ever! Obrigado"
Truly Wonderful Property!!
"This is a really really nice place for anyone with a large family or group. Amenities are fantastic. House is super spacious and just a pleasure to stay in. Highly recommend it for anyone staying in the Orlando area!!"
Perfect fit for our family
"The house was the perfect fit for our family vacation. The amenities were great, the location was perfect for us to go to Disney and it was close to stores, etc. We can't wait to come back and use the new water slide that they are putting in. Thank you Andrea Knutson"
"Loved the house, plenty of room, beds were comfortable and the kids were so busy I barely knew they were there. Had a wonderful time. Couldn't be any closer to the park without being part of Disney. Thank you for sharing you place with us. Wouldn't stay anywhere else."
This home had everything except park passes
"This vacation home more than exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, very comfortable and extremely family friendly. As was immediately evident from the thoughtful welcome package, the owners pay attention to the details and this home had everything our family of eight needed to make our stay truly enjoyable. The kids loved the heated pool and game room. I loved the fact there was plenty of space for all, including four, nice bathrooms. Grocery stores and restaurants are very close to the property and we were within 10 minutes of all the Disney Parks. I can highly recommend this vacation home and would absolutely stay there again."
Great, spacious house with fantastic owners!
"We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Steve and Sandy were wonderful to deal with! Any question or concern was dealt with quickly and to our satisfaction. Best equipped kitchen of any other house we've rented and topped off with a lovely, thoughtful welcome package."
Great house, localização fantástica, super fun and very comfortable.
"This was the perfect house for our 3 families. Clean, smart and beautifully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. The location was excellent as it was extremely close to everything Disney so we could pop back to the house for a break and easily go back into the parks. We really enjoyed the warm swimming pool and hot-tub and it was hard to get the 4 children (e adultos) out of the games room! The baby equipment was extremely useful in particular the stroller and high chair and all the children enjoyed the pool toys and basketball. The house made our holiday really special as it was such a comfortable and relaxing place to be and made visiting Disney very easy. Many thanks to Steve and Sandy for their excellent hospitality, lovely welcome pack and fantastic home."
Beautiful home, wonderful time, sad to leave!
"This home has everything you will need to have a great time with your family! Wonderful location and very well-kept property. Great amenities, ideal location, and we especially loved the clubhouse pool/waterslides, Park, and game room at the Villa! We would definitely stay here again!"
The house was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed.
"This was a guys golf vacation, we had 7 adults and we had plenty of room. The home was conveniently located near everything you need. The game room, the jacuzzi and the pool were a great addition. We definitely recommend this home and look forward to coming back."
The house was lovely!
"This totally fit the bill! We had a training at Disney and stayed here with a group of five women for work. It was nice to be able to go back to the house and unwind and to have room to relax. The pool and Jacuzzi were also a huge plus."
8 night stay, picture perfect week
"We absolutely enjoyed the spacious home, especially appreciated the pool, sala de jogos, outdoor dining table, kitchen, which we took advantage of all week long. Oh, and the location was perfect, 10 minutes or so drive into the parks and everything available right a short ride away on 192. We had 5 day park hopper passes and went Mon-Fri, next time we'll do 3 days and spend more time enjoying the house more."
SUPER CLEAN AND HOSPITABLE OWNERS
"The first thing my mom said when we arrived to the property was how CLEAN the place was! The owners were very thoughtful in providing all the amenities to make our stay as comfortable and fun as possible. There were more kitchen supplies than we expected and my brother's babies made good use of the baby gear. Our family of 11 (including babies) had so much fun at the pool playing basketball and volleyball games. I highly encourage families visiting Orlando/ Disney World to come stay here! You would not want to leave the place :)"
Lovely home with a large open layout. Very tastefully decorated.
"Our extended family of 9 enjoyed our stay so much! The kids loved being able to swim at any time. This home has an open plan with 2 family rooms/sitting areas on the lower level. Nice appliances in kitchen and laundry. Fun games in the game room. Five bedrooms are upstairs and 1 queen bedroom is downstairs. The air conditioning worked great in all areas of the home. Owners were prompt with all communication. Windsor Hills is a great area and close to so many attractions."
Casa grande, Totalmente abastecido
"Nossa família tinha um tempo maravilhoso no Villa pelo castelo. It's a beautiful house and everything was better than expected. Having enough supplies in the house for the first day was amazing and made it possible for us to jump right into our vacation; we had no need to run out and grab trash bags, laundry pods or dish detergent. The hosts even provided a lovely welcome gift that gave us something to cook up for breakfast the next morning. Tudo estava limpo e claramente marcados para tornar a navegação da casa (e toda a eletrônica) muito fácil. Era o lugar perfeito para nossas férias em família grande. Éramos muitos adultos e muitas crianças e sentíamos que tínhamos sempre espaço suficiente para ficar algum tempo sozinho, quando foi preciso. Com certeza visitaremos novamente!"
I'll be back!
"Fantastic house. Great area. Clean and well maintained. Steve and Sandy responded very quickly to any and all questions. Will come again!"
Perfect for a multi-generation family vacation
"The villa was all we hoped it would be ... and more. Plenty of room for our family of 13, which included our adult kids and their toddler-to-adolescent age children. The kitchen was well-equipped, the kids really enjoyed the game room, and everyone loved the pool with hot tub. Steve and Sandy were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They responded very promptly to every inquiry along the way, making our experience there worry-free. O "welcome package" we discovered upon arrival (with some very thoughtful items such as bread, milk, café, even a bottle of wine) was especially appreciated after a two-day road trip to Florida. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. I know we'll be back the next time we plan a family vacation to Orlando!"
Best place to stay near Disney
"Great place with all the amenities and even more (carrinhos de bebê, darts, hóquei de ar, netflix, jogos de piscina, etc.). We had great service from Steve and Sandy. The place is very well located for the proximity to Disney. A big house with a nice pool. When we had questions, Steve and Sandy responded very quickly. We were 3 friend families and we had a lot of room inside the house. Only downside, only one fridge, we were a little limited;). Thank you for everything again. André Marcoux Québec"
"Beautiful place for a family to have a great time. the owners contact and keep you informed at every step of the process. Want to stay here next year again."
Wonderful family trip!!
"This trip was 3 years in the planning and involved the joining of families from Scotland, Austrália, and the US - we had high expectations for this long awaited trip and they were far exceeded!! The house was a perfect fit, it had everything we needed and the pool provided constant fun for everyone (especially the kiddos!). As a parent of a 4 and 2 yr old, I loved how well supplied the house was for them (crib for 2yr old, strollers for the parks, pool toys, etc) and for entertaining/dining for our 3 families there was everything we could possibly need. We also loved the clubhouse pool and the close proximity to the Disney parks - only a couple miles away which was great! We all had such a wonderful time that we are already talking about trying to plan another trip! I also have to say that Steve and Sandy were amazing with their correspondence, so kind and always promptly getting back to me with my questions. They also left a very thoughtful "welcome" package for us when we arrived with some food staples and wine 🙂 I can't say enough about our trip, you will not be disappointed if you stay here! Thank you Steve and Sandy!!"
Beautiful & Comfortable house for 4 families!
"We really enjoyed staying at this house this past week. The house was so clean, big, and comfortable. The house owners were so nice and they always wrote me back right away if I had any questions. They even sent us a welcome gift! I definitely want to come back to the house again in the future!"
Clean, comfortable house in a great location
"Our family of 11 had a wonderful week in Florida - great rental! The house is very close to Disney and Universal and many other shopping areas and restaurants. It was extremely clean and comfortable and had the most stocked and organized kitchen we've ever seen in a rental home! Steve and Sandy were great - they left a welcome gift for us for our Friday night arrival and were extremely responsive checking in with us throughout our stay as questions came up. The kids loved the pool and hot tub right out back and there's a large pool area with water slide that was a 5-minute walk away. They also made good use of the game room and gaming systems in the house during down time. If we ever needed a space for a large group again, we'd love to make another trip and stay here."
It’s better than a fine hotel.
"We just returned from a week stay at this beautiful house. We had three families together. It was the first time our granddaughters have been to Disney and to see their beautiful eyes light up was just magical. I would highly recommended this vacation home. It has everything you could ask for. Steve and Sandy are wonderful. When you had a question or a concern they got right back to you and fixed the problem. We loved the welcome package when we got there. Everything was perfect and well maintained. All the baby equipment was so useful. We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We will be looking to rent this house again for our next vacation to Disney. Thank you again The Foster and Lettic Family"
Easy, fun, and hassle-free vacation
"We just returned from 8 days at this property. We had a great experience with both the house and the owners. We found the property very clean, well-stocked with essentials, and organized. Steve and Sandy provide a fantastic welcome package that includes some cold drinks, snacks, and adult beverages, which were welcomed after traveling with 4 children! The kitchen has absolutely every tool you can think of and everything is meticulously labeled so you know where to put it back. They also supply basics like trash bags, laundry detergent, dish detergent, salt/peppper -- things that you don't want to have to buy, especially for a short trip. And they have a ton of baby equipment that's in really good shape -- we used their jogging stroller all week and the bedrails they provide for the twin beds. The furniture is comfortable, clean, and attractive. Passamos muitas noites exaustas nos sofás a ver filmes e não havia muito espaço para o nosso grupo de 8. Steve e Sandy também são altamente responsivos. Tivemos um problema com a grelha de avaria enquanto nós estávamos lá e alguém ia ver (no domingo que eu acredito) dentro de uma hora e um novo grelhador entregues um dia e meio mais tarde. Foi impressionante a sério. Eles fazem tudo muito fácil para os hóspedes, com um manual muito detalhada comentários, incluindo menus para restaurantes locais que podem obter através da linha de portão de Windsor Hills longa sem ter que ligar para a guarda. Nós não hesitaríamos de aluguer de Steve e Sandy novamente. You really can't go wrong with this house."
Great Home for Multiple Families
"All three families enjoyed our week-long stay at Villa By the Castle. The home had every amenity possible, including everything we needed to accommodate our 2 year-old grandsons. We also took advantage of the community playground and pool. Uma nova secção da comunidade piscina aberta durante a nossa estadia, que inclui novos escorregas e uma zona de respingo. We would definitely come again the next time that we visit WDW and recommend that others should stay here."
"My family and I celebrated my grandmother 80th bday and we had a ball! The house was more than enough for us and the care package was such a blessing. Stores and restaurants were very close to us as well. This house is amazing and all the amenities was more than enough. I can go on and on but you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Steve and Sandy."
We can’t wait to rent again! Perfect for a Disney vacation!
"The house was great, it had SO much stuff - I over packed (having 3 little boys I wanted to be prepared) and the house was incredible. The owners were amazing to work with and so attentive the entire time. We had an issue with a crib mattress not being in the house - someone previous must have damaged or removed it from the house - and they immediately ordered us a new one and offered to rent us a crib until the mattress arrived. We arrived to some grocery essentials to get us started, soap and shampoo starters... they also provided garbage bags, dishwasher and laundry detergent - a lot of little things other homes do not provide. The beds were comfortable too!"
Excellent, clean, huge, excelente localização, great owner response
"We rented this property for 10 total, 7 adults and 3 kids age 2,4 & 6. Had a first floor bedroom and full bath for great grandma! Large kitchen, well stocked with everything you would need and completely labeled! Large washer/dryer, plenty of pool towels and bath towels, baby gear which came in handy at the parks. Kids really enjoyed the community pool and snack shack (great prices too). Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling with a large group. Kids used the pool and hot tub every day. Kids and adults also used and enjoyed the large game room daily. Had a door lock issue and had immediate response from owners and fixed same day! Thanks Steve and Sandy"
"This large home was extremely comfortable for our group of 10 adults and a 4 month baby. Lots of baby equipment was available (we did have to clean stroller...only item we planned to use). Everything listed was available and then some. The kitchen was well outfitted to do plenty of home cooking as well as baking! The way everything was labeled made it super easy to put items back in their place. If you are looking for a great layout, plenty of space, great location and so many thoughtful touches all at a decent price, this is the one. The owners are very responsive. This worked perfectly for us. I always read reviews before booking, so it's very important that what is written is accurate. Would I stay here again? Absolutely!! Any negatives? Bem, if you are looking for posh and super up-to-date, this may not be what you want. There are some updating issues (suggestions: carpet replaced, re-grout showers, kitchen counter needs to be replaced) that could be addressed, but once again, this is very worth it!! I would give it 5*"
Fantastic location, great amenities, lots of space and we'll stocked with essentials
"We made this our home base for a 3 day Disney trip. Location was perfect. The private pool and hot tub were a welcome respite from all the long days at the park. We will definitely look to stay again next time we are in the area."
we found more than expected....
"charming house, amazing to live, plenty of space, nothing is missing and we easily find ourself at home. everybody enjoyed, and kids just loved the xbox, and parents the billiard room. do not hesitate !! i think we found the best..."
ALL expectations met!
"AMAZING multi family get away!! Kids ages ranged from 8mo-9years. Everything and anything possibly needed. Great location beautiful resort! Noticed this Villas lanai was the best one around us! Steve and Sandy couldn’t have been better with communication! Their welcome package was so thoughtful. We will definitely be back next year!!!"
Fantastic large family home & pool in the right location minutes to Disney & amenities
"Nossa família tinha um fabuloso reencontro no Villa pelo castelo. With 6 adults and 4 children we needed a large space that was fully equipped. Esta propriedade tinha tudo. Os proprietários, Steve e Sandy tinham excelente comunicação desde o primeiro contato para verificar o que era muito reasuring. Havia um pacote de boas-vindo grande esperando por nós no check-in, então não tivemos que correr para a loja para básico. Material de limpeza, detergente de lavanderia e prato foi adicionado bônus. A casa própria era limpo e confortável. Beds were comfortable with extra linens and lots of towels for the pool. The salt water pool was warm and the hot tub was a great hit with everyone. I appreciated that there was no extra charge for the pool heat. We spent hours in it every day. Two of our kids learnt to swim during our stay. Within a short walk, was the community pool with water slides for the kids, also a huge hit. The games room in the house was used by all with air hockey being the favourite. Although the we didn’t use much of it, there was lots of equipment for babies and young children. The stroller was very handy during our days at Disney. We cooked most of our meals so the extremely well equipped kitchen was greatly appreciated. There are lots of dishes, glasses, pots, pans & cooking equipment. We even made 3 birthday cakes using the equipment on hand. The house is just a few miles from Disney and we were even provided with a shortcut to the front gate. LEGO land was only 35 minutes away and was loved by all. Walmart is really close and all other major chains are nearby as are a variety of restaurants if you want to eat out. We stayed 12 days and we still didn’t do everything we wanted to do. I highly recommend Villa by the Castle; it is a great value and is the best equipped rental home I have ever stayed in. It provided a wonderful home base for our families and we hope to return again. ChrisB and family"
Beautiful! Clean! Felt so at home!
"The six of us just loved this lovely, roomy home and hope to go back in the future! It had everything we needed for eleven days of fun and relaxation! The pool and hot tub were amazing and refreshing, we all loved it. Thank you Steve and Sandy for allowing us to rent your wonderful home! Also stores were close and restaurants as well. Barbecue was nice and grilled a few times."
Clean, convenient, espaçosos
"15 minutes to Disney. Pool and grill were great to use. Plenty of space for all 7 of us. Kids loved the game room. Rooms were big and came with all the supplies needed for our infant."
Wonderful vacation at a VRBO, home was more than we imagined!
"This property had plenty of room for our whole family. The grandchildren & adults had a wonderful time in the pool in addition to the waterpark and movie theatre at the Villa. We were very thankful for all the baby items that were available so my daughter didn't have to haul extra things with her. The pool toys came in handy for the grandsons enjoyment while in the pool also. Steve & Sandy were great in answering all our questions before we arrived and keeping us informed up til the time we got there & after. Had a quick check-in with both my husband & I and our kids when they arrived from the airport late at night. The welcoming package that was at the house was greatly appreciated. The location was very convenient for our agenda in going to the parks, ocean and gulf. The house had everything we needed for cooking, laundering and playing. The game room was enjoyed by all the family too. We would definitely give Steve & Sandy a call at staying there again in the future for another family vacation!"
Family gathering in Florida
"We were a party of 7 adults and 3 under fives so we needed plenty of room and we certainly got that as everybody had a bed room and a bath room to each family group. With 3 under fives we also had all of the equipment we could have wished for. The whole experience from booking to arrival and the actual 2 week stay itself went like a dream, the owners Steve & Sandy communicate at all stages and left a nice welcome pack for our arrival which was much appreciated after our long journey from London. If you want a villa that includes everything and I mean everything with no additional or hidden costs such as gas for the bbq or heating the pool etc then please book the villa by the castle you wont be disappointed. Would we book again yes we would a 5* rating from our party."
Amazing villa......book it now if you are interested... you will not be disappointed
"This villa was everything & more. We were a family of 14 from the age of 10 mths to 60 & could not have asked for anything more. This villa has everything you could possibly need especially for the children. Steve & Sandy were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. It's ideally placed for Disney parks & the resort itself is amazing. Can't praise the villa enough you will not be disappointed. Go ahead and book it now if you are thinking of it. We have been renting for the last 12years & it is up there with the best. Thank you so much Steve and Sandy"
"Tivemos o melhor tempo em sua casa. Você tem tantos itens de cozinha, toalhas, material extra na despensa e ainda deixou um presente de boas vindas para nós. A casa está tão limpa e a piscina foi grande e aquecida. Esta casa tinha tudo que precisava e estava tão perto dos parques. O bairro está fechado e o parque aquático foi grande. Eu definitivamente recomendo ficar aqui e eu ficar aqui novamente. Thank you so much."
Fuga de Páscoa
"Tudo o que esperávamos e mais. This was our 7th time at Windsor Hills from the first time in the condo's to the townhouses and the last 4 times in the homes. Sua foi a melhor até agora devido ao layout e como fechar para a piscina. We would stay here again for our next trip if available."
"Had a great time wonderful house, close to parks, close to whatever kind of restaurant you want to eat at burgers, steak, seafood, breakfast ect., ect. ect. Sede social do clube, swimming area, rec. room, and gameroom"
"We can’t say enough good things about this property! It has everything that you could possibly need to feel comfortable during your stay, and truly feels like “home away from home”. Steve and Sandy are amazing owners and were in constant contact with us before our arrival and throughout our entire stay. We definitely plan to return to stay here for future family vacations.....Our family of 16, ranging in age from 7 months old to 76 all agree that this home is perfect in every way!"
Quick little getaway
"I honestly can not say enough great things about this property! The home was beautiful, had everything we needed! Localização perfeita. I especially loved our welcome basket after the long trip. We will definitely recommend and stay here again!!!!"
July 2019 Florida trip
"Tivemos umas férias maravilhosas; Esta villa é bonito! Grande família tinha muito espaço. Crianças amei a sala de jogos e piscina foi incrível! Seleção-in fácil, excelente localização, waterpark & clubhouse close. Steve e Sandy respondem rapidamente para qualquer dúvida ou assistência. Amei este lugar! Obrigado!!"
Tudo o que esperávamos!!!
""A propriedade foi tudo o que esperávamos! As crianças tiveram uma explosão na piscina e a sala de jogo mantinha ocupado quando eles estavam fora da piscina. A casa era muito limpos e espaçosos. Minha esposa ficou surpresa com quantas coisas úteis foram em casa para nós usarmos. Trouxemos um pequeno carrinho dobrável para nosso filho mais novo, Mas vi que havia um carrinho maior na casa para usarmos quando vai para os parques temáticos. Eu recomendaria definitivamente alugar novamente de Steve e Sandy, Eles sempre mantiveram em grande contato com a gente e nos deram mais do que suficiente informação sobre o que fazer quando estávamos na cidade. Would rent this property again the next time we're back down in Orlando.""
Great location and amazing hosts
"Hosts were very responsive and helpful. The house was spacious and worked so well for our large family The pool was extra fun Location is perfect. You couldn't get closer to Disney unless you were in a Disney property. My personal favorite part was all the baby amenities. We have twin one year olds and we didn't have to pack much for them because this house was so equipped with baby items. It made traveling with babies very convenient. I will be coming back to this house for sure. I also enjoyed the starter pack of food as it helped us not rush to the store. PS: the store is less than a minute away. Oh and last thing: the clubhouse pool was so amazing... Again perfect for families with kids and babies."
Perfect even with an Impending hurricane
"Everything was clean & tidy (although the maid was still there when we arrived at 4:45 she made an effort to be thorough yet hasty) O "little extras" are what made this place perfect. To arrive and have even a couple of drinks in the fridge & snacks for my ravenous family after travel was extremely thoughtful & a perfect touch. Updates & notifications about the weather / airport reports from the owners showed concern & offering of any assistance for numbers for travel and lodging with impending hurricane. The weather ended up holding out and our trip was perfect. We could not have asked for more perfect accommodations & we hope to return to the Villa by the Castle for future vacations."
Perfect for all ages!
"I picked this property over others initially because it seemed most equipped for the extras you need when you travel with a toddler. From the minute we booked Steve and Sandy started taking care of every detail. The house guide is very thorough to ensure you can be most prepared for your time at Disney or whatever you do. We like to hit a theme park, take a day off, then hit a theme park again, take a day off... This Villa by the Castle really catered to every age. We loved playing pool, and air hockey. The swimming pool had so many play toys and even a puddle jumper. The clubhouse pool was nice too. The kitchen was equipped well. Wish there was a bigger crockpot to accommodate a larger crew and a pancake skillet, but we were still happy without those items. Steve and Sandy even had a welcome gift waiting for our family to help us begin our trip without running to the store. The Wal-mart was always busy! Thank you for making this part of our trip fantastic!"
"We have recently spent two weeks in Sandy and Steve’s property and have had a wonderful time with the family. We were particularly looking for a house in a convenient location for Disney with facilities for young children. We couldn’t have been happier. The villa was very comfortable and met all our expectations. It was very close to the community pool and water park when the children were ready for a change for the villa’s lovely pool. We would certainly recommend Sandy and Steve’s home. They have thought of everything to make their visitors’ stays perfect."
Fabulous Disney House!
"This house had everything we needed. 5 adults and 5 kids had plenty of room for everyone! The place was spotless and the pool was awesome! After a long day at Disney it was so nice to come home and sit in our own hotub! 5 stars all around! Would definitely stay here again. So much better than a hotel! Thank you Steve and Sandy for everything!"
Great week in Kissimmee
"Spent the week in this great property with extended family ...9 people 3 generations. The week started with sunny days and 80 plus temps and ended in rain and 50s..but this house made it a breeze. So close to Disney World (10 minutos) but the best time ended up being at the house swimming in the heated pool and grilling out on the large propane grill. Every thing we needed from coffee pots to pots and pans were there. The kids (age 9-15) loved the gameroom and were never bored. Thanks for a great week."
Great family spot for Disney
"Everything was great from the location to all of the amenities in the house...we had a family of 10 with three small children and it was perfect for us! The clubhouse is also plus especially the pool and game room for the kiddies! We will definitely stay again! Thanks again to great hosts!"
Best equipped and located villa!
"We had a marvellous 2 week holiday at the villa. It had absolutely everything you would need - from dishwasher and laundry tabs to a great gas BBQ with propane included. Our party which included children from ages one to eight were so well catered for. There was an abundance of baby equipment including cots, buggies, books, toys and games for all ages. The kids were never bored. A piscina (with plenty of pool toys) and hot tub were sublime! We all had an amazing stay. I would highly recommend this great villa and the Resort Windsor Hills. The Disney Parks were so near that when we didn’t feel like driving an Uber taxi was under$10 each way! We would definitely return!"
"This was our first time venturing into a VRBO (as opposed to hotels) and we have to say that Steve and Sandy made the process so simple and enjoyable! From the prompt responses to every question leading up to our stay, to the welcome package upon arrival, to the thank you messages at the end, it was all great. We stayed with 2 children under 4 and the amenities for kids were clean, easy to access and included with our stay. Given that we had 2 kids, the net fence in front of the pool was a huge bonus. The house was beautiful, spacious and each room had plenty of space for us. Plenty of towels for everyone, even laundry soap for a load of laundry we needed to do! Entry and departure from the complex was also very easy. Super close to Disney which was the reason for our stay. We will definitely be back!!"
Beautiful place to stay!
"This is a beautiful place to stay! The property looked exactly like the pictures showed! There was plenty of room for our party of 10. The beds were very comfortable and everything was in good shape. We had one issue with a TV and it was resolved very quickly...Steve and Sandy were very prompt in answering any questions we had. The hot tub was perfect for relaxing in after a long day at the parks and the kids loved the pool! The location of the villa in regards to all the parks was perfect! It didn't take us more than 10-15 min to reach the Disney parks each day. We would definitely recommend this place and if we fond ourselves in the area again would not hesitate to stay again! Also the welcome package from Steve and Sandy was an awesome surprise after a day of traveling!"
Férias da área de Orlando
"As propriedades da casa e da comunidade eram perfeitas para uma família extensa (3 generation) Férias. A casa era imaculada e tinha tudo o que era necessário para adultos e crianças. Proximidade das atrações da área e da praia oceânica. The owners made the whole process very smooth."
