THE PERFECT CONDO

Review submitted: March 17, 2014   Date of arrival: February 28, 2014

We recently returned from our best Disney vacation to date, thanks in large part to Richie's condo, and the Windsor Hills Resort. The condo is literally 2 miles from the Disney property highway system. So it took us about 12 minutes from parking spot to parking spot at Magic Kingdom, and 10 min for Epcot, Animal Kingdom & Hollywood Studios. We also went to SeaWorld which was about 18 minutes and LEGOLAND which was about 50 minutes. So this condo has LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

In terms of the condo itself, there's no need to bring anything other then a few clothes, sunscreen, and some groceries. We brought way more clothes then we needed, and ended up using the laundry baskets & washer/dryer within the unit several times throughout the week. There was an abundance of beach towels (10+) that we could take down to the pool each day. And there was shelves full of extra bath linens in the master bedroom closet, above and beyond all of the towels in the already well stocked bathrooms. Other items I noticed but didn't use included everything you'd need for an infant, from a high chair to a pack & play, a cooler on wheels to bring cold drinks down to the pool, an iron & ironing board, and more. As I said, this place has everything. And the Kitchen was no different. In addition to the high end finish, including stainless everything, it was as well appointed as your own home. I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there already.

One of the things I use nightly at home is a body pillow, and I've NEVER rented a place that had one available, but Richie's condo did. There were several extra pillows in the master bedroom closet, including a body pillow. Well done Richie.

There's a flat screen TV in each bedroom, in addition to the one in the family room, and they are all easy to use and of high quality. And there was free WiFi available which we used daily, and which was within range when we sat at the end of the pool just under the condo. So that was very convenient as well.

Ahhhhh, the POOL......it's AWESOME thanks to its very inviting 85 degrees temperature. And the slide was a HUGE hit with our two daughters ages 5 & 8. My wife loves the water, but always has a complaint when it comes to pools because they are always too cold for her, but not this pool.

Lastly, Richie is VERY easy to deal with and I can't recommend his condo more highly.

Owners response: Jonathan,

Words really can not justify how incredibly happy I am knowing that your family really did feel just at home at my condo as my family does as well as the fact that you put so much thought and time into sharing your awesome memories with my future guests. Other than simply saying thank you I really am sort of without the proper words.... I can tell you that each and every upgrade I've ever made at the condo I have done so with familys like yours in mind believing that after I check out a new family will check-in and really love what ever it was that I just had installed or upgraded... Honestly it is really hard to be "on vacation" at the condo and spend your time waiting for delivery trucks, installing appliances etc... and sometimes it can make you wonder if that really is what a "vacation" is supposed to be all about but all I need to do is read a review / testimonial such as yours and I know full well that everything that has been done at the condo to improve my future guest's experiences were all more than worth my time. Again I can not properly say thank for your the time you put into your review but I can say I am 100% certain my future guests appreciate it as much as I do ..... Richie

Excellent

Review submitted: March 3, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

We booked this condo for a trip to Disney / Universal. The condo was great and the owner was very easy to work with.

Condo quality exceeded our expectations, would definitely stay again.

Owners response: Joey,
I am so incredibly happy to know that your family really felt at home at my condo. As you know I had literally just installed all the new kitchen appliances right before your family arrived and when you emailed me .... "We just got checked in, the place is fantastic. The new appliances look great as well" ... that is all I needed to read. Thanks so much for taking the time throughout your own vacation to write me. Thanks for caring for my condo as if it were your own. Please if ever your family decides to stay in the Orlando area again in the future do email me. Your family is always most welcome. Richie

Theme park oasis

Review submitted: February 3, 2014   Date of arrival: January 25, 2014

We brought our young family to Orlando to visit the Disney theme parks...and this condo was the perfect home base! A very responsive owner, courteous on-site staff, and an awesome pool all made for a great stay. The rooms in the condo are comfortably and tastefully decorated, the kitchen had what we needed to cook meals, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. It was a fantastic place to stay with small children and when we return to the area we'll definitely stay here again!

Owners response: Jon,

I am so incredibly glad to know that your family really enjoyed their stay at the condo. Nothing makes me happier to hear. I am so truly thankful to you and your family for taking time out while on vacation to care for the condo in the way that you did. Of course I wish for your family to think of my condo as your home but you went even further in not only caring for the condo but also having a true awesome concern for it's well being. I truly appreciate it. Please do consider calling my home your own again if ever you choose to revisit Orlando with your family. They will certainly be most welcome. I wish you and your family well.

excellent!

Review submitted: January 26, 2014   Date of arrival: January 17, 2014

Chilly weather could have cooled our spirits, but a well-equipped, perfectly located home-away-from-home helped to make this an A+ vacation for my wife and me and two 12-year old grandkids. Building amenities were super, and I consistently found parking adjacent to the closest, most convenient entrance. Loved the fact that the on-site store sold "singles" of paper towels, toilet paper and many other items, sparing us the expense of buying in unnecessary bulk.

Windsor Hills staff were tops - friendly and helpful in all regards.

We dodged raccoons twice when returning after 9pm as they took advantage of guests who failed to properly secure their garbage in the shared hallways. Cute and entertaining, but probably unhealthy. Condo management should consider tightening restrictions in this regard.

Finally, it was a genuine pleasure dealing with a unit owner who has his act together, to say the least. All communications were immediate, clear and detailed. No surprises or questions left unanswered. By the end of our stay, it felt like we were working with a friend rather than a landlord - as evidenced by the discovery and return of a phone charger we left behind by accident.

Would repeat this stay at any opportunity and have already advised friends and family to do the same.

Owners response: Jim, Wow. A+ … I am sort of speechless. Thank you!! I must tell you that over the years I really have missed out on a lot of fun with the family while staying at our home in Orlando simply because I spent the day installing tvs or with contractors or waiting for furniture deliveries… basically trying to do whatever I could to really upgrade the condo and make it feel more like home to my guests. Today, after reading your awesome review, I know that it was all worthwhile. I am so incredibly happy to know how much you loved my home away from home and how great your vacation was overall. Thanks so much for referring your friends and family to my home. I truly hope my condo will be available for them if indeed they decide to call the condo their home. It would be my pleasure having them as my guests. Thanks also for taking the time to share your awesome memories with my future guests. I know I can speak for them when I say your words are truly appreciated. I wish you and your family well. Richie

Clean and Comfortable Condo

Review submitted: January 7, 2014   Date of arrival: December 15, 2013

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was exrememly convenient to Disney. We are a large family so we used the well stocked kitchen. There were even travel coffee mugs!! Comfortable beds. Stroller, travel crib and small ice chest on wheels. Wifi worked great. Pool is fantastic and the kids enjoyed the water slide. We loved the pool view from the condo as well. We highly recommend this condo. The owner, Richie, was easy to contact and answered questions promptly.

Owners response: Jennifer,

I am so incredibly happy to hear that your family really enjoyed their stay. Nothing makes me happier. Thanks for mentioning the kitchen. I must tell you that restocking the kitchen is always a priority of mine whenever we visit the condo. It is always my desire to try to stock the kitchen with many of the same things that my guests and I have in our own homes. Truth be told I think I am more familiar with the Target in Kissimmee than I am the one here where I live. I am also glad you were able to make use of all the other things like the pack and play etc… That is what they are there for. To try to allow your family to really feel at home at my home in Orlando. I must give credit to a past guest of mine who actually left the stroller for my future guests. They live in London and decided it would be a better idea for my guests to use it during their visits than to try to pack it for their flight back to England. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your awesome memories of my home with my future guests. I can tell you that nothing matters more to them then to hear how happy my past guests were while staying at the condo. Your family is always most welcome if ever you decide to vacation again in the Disney area. I wish you and your family well. Thanks again. Richie

A home away from home.

Review submitted: January 2, 2014   Date of arrival: December 21, 2013

Our stay during Christmas week was GREAT! Everything was EXACTLY as advertised; minutes away from Disney, spacious condo, great views, comfortable beds, heated pool, and other resort amenities.

The condo owner, Richie, was exceptional in the entire process. He was readily available to all inquiries and offered valuable suggestions. Would proudly recommend this condo to family and friends.

Nothing makes me happier than to hear that my guests truly felt at home at my condo. It was my pleasure sharing my home away from home with your family. I am quite sure that your "Christmas in Disney" present that you gave to your family will be one that they will remember for ever. What an incredible present that was. Thanks for trusting me with your family's dream vacation and thanks also for sharing your memories with all of my future guests. I know how much it means to them to hear how happy your family really was. Please know that your family is always welcome as my guests if ever you decide to vacation in the Orlando area again.

Perfect for our Family

Review submitted: October 24, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2013

This condo was perfect for our 7 days of 7 area theme parks. It was a welcome place of respite from the busyness of each day. The pool downstairs for the little ones was lovely, and they enjoyed meeting other children who were also visiting the complex. The condo is in excellent condition. The beds were VERY comfortable. All of the amentities from the washer/dryer, kitchen appliances, and bathrooms were in working order. I particularly loved the "timed cook" feature on the stove. I could put a casserole in the oven before we left in the morning, and dinner would be ready when we arrived home in the evening. We very much appreciated the pack 'n play and high chair, as we had our 1 year old neice with us as well. The grocery store was a short drive away, and we either ate in the condo, or packed our food for the parks. We saved a lot of money by doing this.

From my first inquiry to the week of our trip, the owner, Richie, was quite pleasant and communicative. He ensured that all the details of our stay were perfect, and that we had all of the information we could need about the condo complex. I had occasion to interact with someone from the Welcome Center at the complex, and she was very helpful as well.

If we ever return to Orlando, we would most definitely stay at Richie's home away from home again. 5 stars!!

It truly was my pleasure having your family as my guests. I am so incredibly glad to know that you really did feel at home at the condo. That really is all I ever wish for. I honestly can not find the right words to express how much I appreciate your taking so much of your own time to share your awesome memories with my future guests. I know so well how much it means to them in allowing them to feel comfortable with me with their dream vacation. But.. more than that... it means so very much to me. Thank you so very much. I really hope that my condo will be free if ever your family wishes to vacation again in the Orlando area. I wish you and your family well always. Richie

We're in love with the condo!!!

Review submitted: October 15, 2013   Date of arrival: September 28, 2013

We're back in Brasil.

Just want to say that our vacation was wonderful!! A great part of its success was staying at the condo!

WE'RE IN LOVE WITH IT!! It was very well maintained and the owner has a very nice taste. The condo is well equipped and has a nice atmosphere too.

We're looking forward to stay in it again. Our next trip to Disney will probably be in the beginning of 2015. As soon we have an agenda I will sure make contact and book the condo again.

I truly recommend it! The owner is a very nice guy, well organized and always answered our questions right away.

Perfect!!!

Review submitted: October 1, 2013   Date of arrival: September 21, 2013

My husband, our three children and I stayed here for a Disney vacation. The condo was the perfect size for our family of 5. Everything was super clean (cleaner than some Disney resorts we've stayed at!). There are loads of beautiful towels and lots of extra sheets, blankets and pillows. The kitchen was superbly stocked with everything I needed to cook and serve a couple of family meals. The beds are SUPER comfortable and there is a flat screen TV in every room which was really nice when everyone needed a break from the family vacation! This location is very very close to the Disney world entrance, it only took us a few minutes to get to the parks every day. The pool is right next to the condo building which made it easy for the kids and I to swim during our stay. The whole community is gated and felt very safe. The gardens and landscaping were immaculate.

Owners response: Oh my. I am so incredibly happy to hear how much your family enjoyed my home. Nothing in the world makes me happier to hear. Your review means so much to me for so many reasons. First of all that you took time out to share your wonderful memories with my future guests but also for allowing me to know that all the time and energy that I’ve put into the condo was all worthwhile. You mentioned the mattresses… Here is an awesome story… I once had a guest from Canada whose mom told her that she never had a better night’s sleep than she had at the condo. During their vacation they actually purchased the very same mattresses and had them delivered to Canada. She said it was totally worth it. Knowing your family feels the very same way has really made my day. Also… I will share your thoughts with my property as far as how clean the condo was. I know they will be thrilled to hear that your family loved it so much. They really take such great care of my home. Thank you so very much for being so kind to me and my home. I so greatly appreciate it. Your family is always so welcome if ever you choose to revisit the Orlando area. I wish you well. Richie.

Fantastic Condo at Windsor Hills!

Review submitted: August 28, 2013   Date of arrival: August 18, 2013

My self and my family had a wonderful time during our stay at Richies's condo. We didn't use much of the amenities due to a busy week of trying to cram in all the theme parks (Discovery Cove was amazing), however the children loved the pool and slide & would of rather stayed there all day if given the choice! The condo was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. Windsor hills itself was maintained to a very high standard and is a very safe & secure complex. All the staff from the cleaners, shop staff and staff at the gate were so welcoming and helpful. Richie's communication has been excellent from booking the holiday and his eagerness to please his guests and to ensure they have a great holiday has not gone unnoticed. We had a very prompt return of deposit, accepted with thanks. Can highly recommend this condo & if we are fortunate to return to Florida in the future hope to stay at Richie's condo!

Owners response: Claire,

I am so incredibly happy to hear that your family had such a great vacation in Orlando and especially happy to know that you really felt at home at my home.

We actually just visited the condo only a few weeks before your family arrived and tried to purchase many items that we could think of to try to make it more at home for guests just like your family.

It really is the safest place for kids and I am so glad your children love is as much as mine do. When they were younger they used to run into their rooms as soon as we arrived to see their stuffed animals in their rooms.

Thank you so very much for your kind words about the condo. I give a lot of credit to my property managers who I must say care for my condo as if it were their own. They have the very same desire for my condo as I do for it to be shared with me guests as if it were their own home.

I know you flew in all the way from England for your holiday but if ever you can revisit Orlando again the future my home is always there for your family.

Thank you for taking the time to share your memories with my future guests. You'll never know how much it means to them and of course how much it means to me too.

I am truly grateful.

I wish you and your family well.

Amazing Condo in the Disney Area!

Review submitted: June 17, 2013   Date of arrival: June 8, 2013

Our week in Richie's condo was nothing short of amazing! We wanted to be close to the Orlando attractions, but have an area to escape from the crowds. We planned our week to alternate days in the parks with pool days at the resort. Our entire family truly loved the days we just stayed in and enjoyed this beautiful condo with it's perfect location of overlooking the huge pool complex! Richie, thank you for being so helpful, accommodating, and friendly throughout our stay. We are definitely planning to stay with you again, and we are recommending your condo to all our friends! :)

Absolutely Wonderful! If available, book this condo -- best locatation! 100% satisfied!

Review submitted: May 29, 2013   Date of arrival: January 19, 2013

"Wonderful" just barely begins to describe this condo. Everything was exactly as illustrated - EXACTLY! There were no surprises. The location is superb - just past the gates (it's in a gated community) and overlooking the pool. There are (sort of) 2 master bedrooms - although one is the official master, they could both pass as the master and the best part about it is they are on seperate wings to the condo. My husband and I stayed with our children (ages 4 & 7) and in-laws. There was ample room for all of us. I especially liked that we took the room closer to the door so we could come in later and leave earlier, without disturbing anyone. It was perfect. The pool is very nice - we enjoyed it daily and the amenities (local sultry shop, fitness center - just to name the few that we used) were great.
Dealing with Richie was an absolute pleasure and he is 100% honest. Seriously, if you are doubting the reviews because if they are "too good to be true" -- this is the case that it is indeed that good. At first I was a little concerned about the great reviews ( I know, dumb right ...) but really here I am without a bad word to say. We would definetly return and we would definetly recommend to friends/family.

If you are reading this then you are likely interested -- just book it. You won't find better.

It's been a few months since we left (my bad) but I was just cleaning my inbox and thought I really want others to be as happy as we were so I am giving my 2 cents. We stayed for a week, did Disney and all the other hoopla then went on a cruise for a week. Not much else to say except ENJOY YOUR STAY! This condo is fabulous.

Thanks Richie!

Great vacation condo for our family!

Review submitted: May 22, 2013   Date of arrival: April 27, 2013

Staying at this condo was perfect for our family. This trip was for our family to go to Disney and I wasn't quite sure where we wanted to stay. We have not rented a condo like this before and I was a little worried about what we would actually get. After reading tons of positive reviews about this condo and the owner we decided it was worth the shot. I must say that the condo and the owner lived up to or exceeded every review and expectation. The condo is in a gated community and that helped us feel more comfortable with the area for our kids. The pool area with the fresh food, gaming area, theater and workout area all right by the condo made it so convenient to go down and relax. In fact our kids, if they could do anything over would want to spend more time at the pool and going down the slide. I felt like we could have just spent the whole vacation at the condo with all the amenities. It was also very nice to be so close to Disney and Orlando. Any questions I had the owner answered right away. If you are thinking of going to Disney or Orlando area I can not recommend this place enough.

Owners response: JJ,

Oh my…. I cannot even begin to tell you how thrilled I am to know that your family loved my condo and the resort as much as they did. Nothing in the world makes me happier to hear. As you know it always is my desire for all of my guests to truly feel just at home at my home as we do. Hearing that your kids would have loved to have spent even more time poolside reminds me of exactly how we feel during our visits there. On our check-out days I no longer look back in sadness that our awesome week has come to an end but rather simply begin planning for our next visit. Then I just keep thinking tropical thoughts until our visit. I cannot tell you how much I miss watching the sunshine glisten over the pool each day and watching the sun setting over the pool at night. Relaxing just thinking about it, right? Please let your family know that they are always most welcome as my guests if ever they decide that they would like to call my home their own once again. It would certainly be my pleasure having them. Lastly thank you so very much for taking time out to share your memories with my future guests. It means so much to me and I know full well, just as you mentioned, how much it means to them as well. Richie

Our Orlando Vacation

Review submitted: April 10, 2013   Date of arrival: March 17, 2013

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo the week of March 17, 2013, during our Spring Break. Your condo is nicely decorated and very clean. We had plenty of space for our three children and each had their own space to relax after a long day at the parks! We loved having such close access to the pool and club house. We had a great time! We had no problems checking in at the gatehouse. The vicinity of the condo was great as well. Having lots of shopping, restaurants, and mini-golfing in the area was very convenient. We were very close to Disney World and Sea World was less than 10 miles away. If we ever make it back to Orlando, we will definitely stay in your condo again!

Windsor Hills Condo

Review submitted: March 26, 2013   Date of arrival: March 7, 2013

For a family wishing to stay in the Kissimmee area this condo is ideal. We found that the condo exactly matched the description and photos we found in the listing.
The condo was spotlessly clean, very well equiped and the southern exposure overlooking the pool ideal.
The Windsor Hills complex is beautifully maintained and is ideally located for visitors to access all the attractions of the area. The local brochures provided for visitors and those in the condo simplify any additional vacation planning the family may need.
A safe and secure environment for a family to enjoy their vacation; as an additional bonus their is store by the pool serving hot snacks and cool drinks.
Highly recommended!

Wonderful trip to Disney

Review submitted: March 22, 2013   Date of arrival: January 26, 2013

We stayed at the Windsor Hills Pool view condo the week of 01/26/2013......it was Wonderful! The condo was in a perfect spot. It was close to Disney and nearby resurtants and the pool was just out side. There were six of us that stayed here, four adults and two children. There was plenty of room for all. The layout of the rooms was perfect.

The only thing that I would complain about was that I thought it needed a good deep cleaning. It was not bad but the corners and trim had a lot of dust. I believe that cleaning crew bascially does surface cleaning.

Overall though, this was a great place to stay. We would defiantely stay here again.

Owners response: Bonnie,

I am so happy to know that your family had a wonderful vacaiton.

I am truly sorry that the condo was not in perfect condition when you arrived. It is always my desire for my condo to shine even brighter than my guest’s hope that it would.

The condo was actually deep cleaned from Feb 8th through the 10th (only 7 days after your family checked out.)

Since the condo was available for those two nights in February I also chose to use that time to replace the two king size masters with brand new comforters and also upgraded the condo with new pillows and other items to try to make it look more beautiful for my guests.

The condo’s website has not been updated to reflect the new look as I don’t have new video to show my guests. (My property manager emailed me photos they took for me after the deep clean / upgrade). Unfortunately I will not be able to take my own new videos until July when my family vacations at the condo next.

I will post new photos of the condo here on my condo’s advertisements to show you the new look. I tried to keep the condo’s tropical – Floridian theme.

As you know the condo is cleaned after every guest checks out – but deep cleaning (the type you mentioned) takes place every few months. I regret that it was done right after your family checked out.

I hope you’ll love the new look at the condo.

Your family is always most welcome as my guests if ever you choose to revisit the Orlando area again.

Have a wonderful day.

Orlando Trip 2012

Review submitted: January 18, 2013   Date of arrival: October 6, 2012

We loved every minute of our week in Orlando. The parks that we visted were wonderful but we also enjoyed our time in your condo. It was so nice to relax by the pool or sit on the balcony overlooking the pool. This was our second time staying in your condo and enjoyed it as much as the first time. The process of renting the condo and the arrival is very easy and you are a pleasure to deal with. We look forward to renting from you again and will recommend your condo to others. Thanks for sharing your condo with us a second time.

Great location in development and in area

Review submitted: January 12, 2013   Date of arrival: December 21, 2012

We had a great time staying here in Orlando. Very close to the parks which was fantastic. We spent very little time in transit. The unit is perfectly located in the development as the picture implies. We could watch the kids at the pool from the deck. Our concerns about noise from the pool were laid to rest by the firm policy about noise late in the evening and found it to be no problem at all. It is very close to many eating and shopping opportunities and in the delivery radius of Flippers Pizza which was great for us. We really enjoyed our stay.

Owners response: John,

It is so great to know that you enjoyed your Orlando vacation and felt comfortable calling my home your own. I look forward to the day when my kids are old enough that I too can sit on the balcony and watch my kids play by the pool. So often guests tell me that they do just that while staying at the condo. I also love the quiet evenings watching the lights glistening on the pool just after the pool closes. It is something quite hard to describe here but I can tell you enjoyed it as well.

Thank you so much for taking time out to share your memories with my future guests.
I really do appreciate it.
I wish you and your family well.

Outstanding Holiday Destination for all things Disney

Review submitted: January 12, 2013   Date of arrival: October 20, 2012

We stayed at the Pool View Condo for 2 weeks. we stayed with our 3 kids (12, 10 and 6) and all of their needs were catered for within the complex - games room, basketball court, pool etc.

The apartment is well appointed and stocked for those who want to self cater and sufficietly near to supermarkets for this purpose. Restaurants are a very short drive away if you want to eat out. The comlex is a matter of minutes from the Disney Parks but the apartment costs a fraction of the amount you would pay if staying within Disney.

The rooms are large and well equpped. The beds are very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windsor Hills and would definately return again in years to come.

Owners response: Joanne,

Wow. I am so incredibly happy to hear that your family really enjoyed their vacation. Please let your children know that they are always welcome to think of our home as their own if ever your family chooses to vacation again in the Disney area some day.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to share your memories with my future guests. I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate it and I know that I can speak for my other guests in saying that they appreciate it too.

I wish you and your family well.

Pictures Don't Do It Justice

Review submitted: January 11, 2013   Date of arrival: December 16, 2012

We stayed in this condo last month and were pleased to find that the unit was even nicer than the photos. This owner was very thoughtful to the point where he had coolers, stroller, Disney stuffed animals for the kids to play with and even swimming diapers for the pool. I was going to book it for my birthday this month but it was already reserved. It is less than one mile from the highway that takes you right into the Magic Kingdom and anything you want is a stone's throw away. The owner is a pleasure to work with and makes it quite obvious that he truly wishes to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We will definitely be staying there again.

Recommended for: families with young children

Owners response: Oh My. Thank you so very much for your kind words regarding me and my condo. I am truly grateful. I know how difficult it is to trust someone who you’ve found online with your dream Disney vacation and I’ll never take that for granted. I can tell you that I bought my condo brand new when the resort was all trees…but I knew I wanted a “pool view condo” so when I first had a chance to see the actual views for myself a year later I too was incredibly thrilled. You and your family are always welcome and I really do hope that someday you consider calling my home your own once again. Again…Thank you.

Excellent accomodations. We couldn't have asked for better. The owner was more than helpful and answered every question quickly and in detail. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. We did 6 parks in 5 days and we all enjoyed each one - Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Legoland and Hollywood Studios - in that order. We had breakfast at the condo and ate lunch and dinner at the parks.
The listing and photos were accurate and the condo was clean & well-maintained. If I am ever back in the area, I will definitely look into booking the same place again.

Owners response: Andrea,

It was my pleasure having your family as my guests. I wish to thank you for taking the time out to share your awesome memories with my future guests. I really, really appreciate it. Especially since you did so during a time when the entire area around your home was dealing with the aftermath of a hurricane. To think that you actually thought enough of me and my condo to take time out during a week like that means so very much to me. I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Nothing makes me happier then to know that your family really felt at home at my home away from home and really really enjoyed your vacation. Your family is always most welcome if ever you choose to revisit the Orlando area again in the future.
I wish you well.

Pleasantly surprised

Review submitted: October 18, 2012   Date of arrival: September 20, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. We felt very much at home. The property is very nicely decorated. The photos on the web site accurately reflect the appearance of the condo and the amenties. The property was very clean and well maintained. The pool and the clubhouse are only a few foot steps from the condo. Richie, the owner, was very helpful with making the arrangements to stay there. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby along with many attractions. We plan to use this condo as our home away from home the next time we visit the Orlando area.

I am so incredibly happy to hear that you really felt at home at my home away from home. I miss it there so very much! Each and every time I check-out (I am actually a guest in my own home) I take one quick look at the views of the pool out of the windows and say to myself… "Don’t worry…you’ll be back really soon!!"

The thought that you felt the very same way has truly made my day.

Thank you so very much for taking time out to share your awesome memories with my future guests. I know how much it means to them to read how much you enjoyed your stay. It also means more to me then I can express.

I am truly grateful to you for helping share my condo with others around the world.

Great condo near Disney

Review submitted: October 8, 2012   Date of arrival: October 15, 2011

This was a lovely comfortable & clean condo to stay in when visiting Disney World. The owner was wonderful to deal with - so helpful. The condo was a very nice size, with comfortable, newer furniture, as well as large closets & bathrooms. The kitchen was also well stocked. The pool area was beautiful and a delight to sit near, after a hot day at Disney. We also really liked to sit on the lanai at the end of the day, enjoying the view & cool breezes. WindsorHills (gated community) is close to a main artery with lots of restaurants & stores. Within 10 minutes we could be at one of the Disney Parks. Perfect location and lovely condo. Could not ask for more.

Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful memories. I am so glad to know that my condo was even a small part of your wonderful vacation.

I must tell you that I too love to sit on the balcony in the evening after the sun sets and watch as the lights glisten on the pool. To me it is so incredibly relaxing. I miss it there so very much! I am so glad that your family feels the very same way.

Your family is always most welcome as my guests once again if ever you choose to visit the Disney area again in the future.

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

The accommodations were superb.

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: December 18, 2005

Our family of 5 spent 4 great nights here in September 2005. The accommodations were superb. Everything was clean, plenty of clean towels, all the amenities you could ask for. We spent our days at Universal Studios and afternoons and evenings at the condo. It was a quick and easy drive to and from Orlando. Our children, 12, 10, 7 loved the pool, especially the amazing slide. The lifeguards were great and allowed us to stay later than the posted times. The adults enjoyed the hot tub. There was never a crowd and we had a fabulous view from the condo. We enjoyed having TVs in every room as our children all have different bedtime; it made things easy for us. The kids liked shopping at the small general store for treats with their allowance. We enjoyed everything so much, we recommended this unit to my brother-in-law and his family who came a month later and also had a fantastic time. We would not hesitate to come back again. We had our best family vacation ever. Thanks for your hospitality.

This condo was definitely the highlight

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: October 1, 2005

Beautiful condo! We were extremely pleased with our stay at this condo. Very clean, brand new, lots of room and space. Our kids loved the pool and the movie theater. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of bed and bath space and a very nice kitchen. Very nice furnishings. Owner was easy to work with and talked with us over the phone many times before booking. We had never booked over the Internet before and were apprehensive, but this turned out to be a lovely place and a great experience. This place was definitely the highlight of our Disney vacation and by far the nicest place we have ever had the privilege of staying in Orlando. We will be back! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Awesome views of the gorgeous pool

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: November 9, 2005

This is a great three bedroom condo with an awesome view of the gorgeous pool at this complex. There is a washer and dryer and full kitchen, and 2 full baths. I suspect it took us about 8-10 min to get to the parking lot at Disney world. The cost of the condo was very reasonable. The condo was clean and orderly and the furnishings in 11/2005 were almost new. We wish there would have been some dishwasher soap supplied as well as liquid dish soap. Hopefully that has changed. But if you are planning on eating at all in the condo just remember to pick up a small amount of both of those items at the store. The location of the office to pick up the key was about 3 or so miles down the "main drag" and their office could be better marked. But Richie is pretty good about giving the exact distance. Just ask him. When returning the key I was able to leave it on the table of the condo. I understand that the management office typically does not allow that, so be prepared to make the drive back to the office (opposite direction of Orlando Airport) prior to your departure. To be totally honest with who read this--I cannot see any reason to spend the money to stay in the Disney park with the close proximity of this complex and its comfort.

The condo was exactly as advertised

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: December 29, 2005

We rented the condo over the Christmas/New Year holiday 2005/6 for 4 adults.

The condo was exactly as advertised, new, clean, well furnished and equipped, and ideally suited for visits to Disney and other attractions.

Booking was easy and the rate for the period was great value for the amenities provided. We were disappointed that we could not stay longer. We would certainly have no hesitation in renting again.


Thanks again

Richie,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your condo in January 2006.. It is in such a close location to Disney the drive was very short and easy to take. There are really some nice restaurants close by when we decided to dine out. Your condo was very clean and having the washer and dryer right there was nice to get the laundry done before returning home. Being able to view the pool from the enclosed deck was relaxing and beautiful with all the trees and flowers. Checking in and out was a breeze. You truly have a lovely condo and would recommend it to all of our friends. Thank you so much for letting us and our friends use your condo!

Your condo was fabulous

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: February 11, 2006

Dear Richie,

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

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

The condo is immaculate, beautifully decorated and spacious. The kitchen table was big enough for a large family and the kitchen well stocked. The dryer came in handy to dry towels. The location was the very best in the neighborhood, wonderful view of the pool and grounds below. It made life a lot simpler then having to pack up a bunch of stuff to hike to the pool, very convenient. The resort itself was wonderful as well, the pool was heated and my boys really enjoyed the ping pong tables. I would definitely stay the pool view condo again!

We were very pleased with our six night stay in Spring 2006. The condo is comfortable, spacious, and well-furnished and equipped. It was clean and nicely set up for our arrival. The central pool and games area of the development is attractive and our boys really enjoyed the (supervised) waterslide. The location was very convenient for visiting Disneyworld, and there were supermarkets and a variety of restaurants close by. It was particularly helpful to us that the owner's property manager stays open 24 hours/day as we had to check in at 4:00am after a delayed flight. Overall, I found the website represented the property and the specific amenities very accurately, and Mr. Dagostino was extremely responsive and helpful in all our arrangements.

Our family stayed in Richie's condo March 18-25, 2006. It was wonderful. The resort is very well maintained and very clean. The condo is beautiful, spacious and equipped with everything you need. The best part is the location of this particular condo. You can sit on your balcony and watch the pool (nice if you have older children that would like to go to the pool alone) and it is the closest condo to all the resort's facilities. The resort itself is also in such a great location. It is right off the main road (so you are away from all the traffic) and yet only a few miles from Disney's entrance. You can be at the parks in 10 minutes. I also appreciated the owner's personal contact to make sure we had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay. We live in Tallahassee and will stay at Richie's condo whenever we go to Disney and have recommended it to all our friends. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Our stay exceeded all our expectations

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: April 12, 2006

Let me begin this review by saying that our stay in this condo exceeded all my expectations. I have never felt so at home while being on vacation! The condo is beautiful, spacious, clean, and convenient to all area attractions. My children (aged 14 & 16) were thrilled with the Playstation and internet access. After a tiring day at the parks, they headed for these amenities while Mom and Dad headed straight for the gorgeous, heated pool right downstairs. The condo is equipped with necessities like pots and pans, dishes, etc. All we had to do was get some groceries from nearby supermarkets and we were all set. Having a washer and dryer helped with packing issues as we didn't need to bring as much clothes as we normally would have for a week's stay.

The booking process was easy and efficient. The owner, Richie, is well-organized and eager to answer any and all questions. The next time we plan a vacation in Orlando, we will definitely rent this condo again. My only regret is having to leave!


Thanks again, Jennie

If you are looking for a fun vacation with the kids but would also enjoy some relaxation...then this is the place for you! The gorgeous condo was very spacious, a true "home away from home"! The large washer/dryer was such a nice feature, no need to over-pack. The pool area was a huge hit with our family. The kids loved the waterslide! The grounds of the pool and condo area are beautifully maintained. The staff at Windsor Hills along with the rental agency were very helpful. In addition, we purchased park tickets through the agency. They actually brought the tickets to our unit, along with a welcome bag containing park maps, brochures of area attractions, and trial size products. Richie was very helpful & always answered questions in a timely fashion. I will definitely rent from him in the future & highly recommend it to everyone.

The view of the tropical pool area is wonderful

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: May 29, 2006

We recently spent several days in this lovely condo. It was great. The view of the tropical pool area is wonderful. Our children loved “their” rooms. My daughter felt like a princess in the second master bedroom. The furniture was very comfortable and the décor was very nice. The location of this condo in the building is great. It is near the elevators and the stairs. We were not able to hear any outside noise. The pool was great. It is large enough so that a large number of people can be in it at the same time and not feel crowded. The zero entry area is great for smaller children. The building this condo is in is the very first building inside the gate and just past the pool. The overall location of the resort is very convenient to all of the Disney parks as well as a large number of restaurants and shops. The security staff was very friendly. We could not get into the pool at first but then realized it required renting an access card from the Sales office which once returned our deposit was returned. The condo owner is great to work with. He really made the process easier. We will definitely be back.

Dear Richie,

Thank you for the use of your beautiful condo last week. We were very happy with the clean and wonderful accommodations. The kids (all 4 of them) loved the pool area and their bedrooms. We were pleasantly surprised on the closeness to the Disney parks. The close proximity allowed us to "take a break" in the high heat of the afternoon and come back for a few hours to swim and eat. Your helpfulness in arranging our reservation was especially appreciated. We hope to reserve your place again in the future when we're visiting Orlando.

Your condo was absolutely beautiful! Very upscale and clean. Looks like you really chose fine furnishings not just anything to call the place "furnished". My compliments to whoever decorated the home. We had just about everything we needed. The condo is really stocked nicely, from the water noodles in the laundry area to the bath rug outside the shower. The pool area was incredible!!! My kids always wanted to stay at the pool as opposed to going to Disney! Overall, we would recommend your condo to everyone. It was so nice and we have some wonderful memories. Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home to us. Dealing with you, Richie, was so nice. You made me feel confident in my choice for condo rental. You cover all bases and are very pleasant.

The location was convenient and close to everything. I have already referred you to one of the attorneys that I work for and told him that he needs to stay at your condo on his next trip to Disney.

Thank you so much for the great condo to stay in during our Christmas vacation! The place was wonderful and hopefully we left it as good as we found it! Our weather was great and the space was great. It is definitely a place we will recommend in the future to others and possibly for ourselves (if you are still owning the condo in about 5 or 10 years - it may take us that long to get back down in the area!).
In case you were wondering, we are a military family and have lots of friends and family who DO visit the Orlando area each year. If you would be alright with it, we would like to be able to recommend your condo to our friends when we find out they are going down there. You saved us a bunch of money and provided us the conveniences of home. Even though we rented the unit from you, we feel we should thank you for opening your home away from home up for us.
We hope you had a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you again for your hospitality.

Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. Our vacation was great. We went to Disney and we were surprised to see the proximity of your condo to Disney World. I just don’t know why some people choose to rent a small room in a value hotel for the same price of a condo. I had a wonderful time. I enjoyed my breakfast on the balcony every morning. I like the view from the balcony. We can watch the kids at the pool. I will recommend your place to my friends .

Thanks again

We loved your condo! Our trip was very relaxing and enjoyable. We had been to Disney 4 times before, always staying on property. We needed more space this year now that the boys are getting bigger, but we were nervous about staying off property. We could not have been more pleased. We actually got to and from the parks quicker than when we used Disney transportation. You condo is so very very close to the parks. We had a great time at the condo. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. My mom and dad enjoyed the screened in deck. The boys loved the playground and the pool. My mom has been telling all her friends how much she loved staying at your condo, and how easy is was to get to and from the parks. Thank you so much for all of your help, the whole process of renting from you was a breeze. Your quick responses to all of my questions, made planning our vacation easy. One thing that I wasn't expecting to be in your condo that was a huge help was the laundry baskets. It made doing laundry for 6 people much easier. We rent a house at the beach each year and have never rented one where the owners thought to leave a laundry basket, I know this is a small detail, but one my mom and I appreciated. My boys also loved the straw cups you had and the stuffed animals on their beds. Again thank you so very much and when we get the chance to visit Disney again we would love to rent from you again!

As for our vacation in your condo, the only thing that I can say is that you never stop surprising us. There are no words to express our appreciation for going through all the trouble of flying to Orlando only to make sure we had internet access. You really make us feel as if we have a second home in Orlando. Thanks again for everything. Say hi to Becky.

Richie,

We are back from out trip to Florida and let me start by saying we had a lovely time at your condo. It was just great. It is so nicely decorated and the proximity to the pool and the views from the unit are awesome. I couldn't imagine staying in one of the other buildings overlooking the parking lot. As you were already aware, my parents joined us on this vacation (for the first time) and they could not stop gushing about the place. Its beautiful... gated community... location... the pool is gorgeous... the gardens, wow!! Great place... thank-you!

Great experience - Would stay again!

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: March 10, 2007

Hi Richie,

My family and I had a wonderful time at your condo, from checking in late night at 2am – checking out a week later we had a great experience all around. The condo was very clean and conveniently located close to the pool and the exit of the complex. The surrounding area was great and we had an excellent selection of restaurants and Pubs, not to mention a great golf course pretty much in complexes backyard. Also, Disney is short 5 minute ride away and Sea World is only 15 minutes away. There were plenty of towels for the pool and the pool itself was awesome. All in all I don’t have anything that was negative and had a great experience and would definitely rent from you again when staying in the Orlando Disney area. Thanks so much we all had a great time!!

We definitely want to stay at your condo again

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: March 4, 2007

Hi Richie -

I wanted to drop you a note to let you know we LOVED your place! This was the first time I have taken my children to Disney and I wanted everything to be perfect. Plus, we were traveling with another family who always stays inside Disney. So, I was a little apprehensive about everyone's reaction to the condo. I wish I had a camera when we walked in the door - their reactions were priceless. We had one 'down-day' and everyone agreed that we didn't want to leave the complex - we swam and lounged by the pool. The little store was great for the kids to get ice-creams and the gym was wonderful for me to burn off the ice-creams.

We're already talking about returning next March and would definitely like to stay at your place again. We've talked about the condo so much, we have more friends that want to come with us next time.

Please let me know when you have your March 2008 calendar available.

We just returned home from a wonderful stay at your place. My plan was to sit pool-side and read which is exactly what we did! I read 4 books! The weather was awesome. Your place was perfect! It was clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the patio overlooking the pool and were very pleased to be so close to the pool. We used the gym everyday and the kids enjoyed the theater and playing pool. I will certainly consider another stay at your place and will recommend your place to friends!!

To say I worried needlessly before we arrived would be an understatement. Being in my sixties and not an internet savvy "gramma" I took a chance on your integrity ...and it paid off...Thank You. Your condo was everything I had hoped for, super clean, nicely furnished, room for everyone, every appliance and then some, a great location near a beautiful pool and clubhouse, friendly staff and grounds keepers and close to Disney.....I could not have chosen better.....I forgot to mention the hot air balloons rising every morning in the distance and the grandchildren counting them to see how many there would be each day.....We were very comfortable there...........

Thank You Again

Your condo is beautiful - couldn't be better

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: May 5, 2007

Dear Richie

Well we've arrived home in England today - we hated to leave Florida! We are so pleased that we made the decision to book our stay at your beautiful condo - it could not have been better. The condo had everything we needed or desired to make our stay comfortable, happy and luxurious. The setting was great and we all enjoyed using the lovely pool. We really cannot think of a single thing you could add to the condo to improve the experience of your guests, as it truly had everything anyone could need - you thought of everything! We even loved the huge washer and dryer - a little sad we know, but if you experience the half sized machines we have in the UK then you'd know what we mean!!

The entire experience from the very first contact with yourself to make our booking, through your helpful and informative emails to us, to the stay itself was a complete pleasure and we would definitely book with you again the next time we are fortunate enough to spend our vacation in Florida.

Thank you so much for all your kindness, we hope to be able to stay at the lovely condo again soon. With our very best wishes to you and your family

Your condo stands so far above the rest

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: May 12, 2007

Richie,

Our family so enjoyed our time at your condo. Our primary purpose for coming was to take our five-year-old to Disney for the first time. We also had our nine-month old along and therefore needed accommodations that would be suitable for a baby as well. I spent several hours online searching the many offerings in the Orlando area and decided on your condo for several reasons, including:

1. Location - The complex itself is conveniently located near the things we wanted to see. Also, your particular unit is so close to the pool, clubhouse and front of the complex that it made for easy swimming trips (which we managed to squeeze in at some point every day) and entry/exit to our destinations.

2. Furnishings - Locating a condo that could accommodate a baby for a week was important. The high chair was brand new and fully functional, as was the pack-and-play already furnished in the condo. Had I selected another unit that didn't offer these items, I would have been forced to rent them for $80-$100 for the week. Also, we really appreciated the upgraded furniture, including a queen and a king sized bed. Our family has stayed in dozens of rental condos over the years and found yours to be the most well furnished and equipped. We also found the free internet access and long distance to be extremely helpful.

3. Communication with You - Getting on the internet and choosing a place to stay can be risky and impersonal. Your willingness to answer questions and be involved throughout our stay was priceless. It alleviated all my concerns and made our family feel comfortable and welcome in your condo.

Again, thank you so much for investing your time and resources into making your condo stand so far above the rest. Our family had a wonderful visit and made many lasting memories.

I just wanted to thank you for all your contact before we left for our holiday. This had really put our minds at rest. We arrived to a beautiful condo with stunning views of the pool area, just as it shows on your website. The condo was perfect for my family and in fact the pictures don't do it justice. It was spacious, clean and really well equipped. Everything we needed for a perfect holiday. We traveled with 2 other families and unfortunately they were not as lucky as us. I had booked in advance and you kept in contact with me the whole time. Thank you for everything. We would not hesitate to book again.

Hi Rich:

We simply loved the condo! I actually couldn't wait to send you a note commending on how lovely it was. When we walked in we all said "WOW"! Having stayed in other places, this was an excellent choice for us. It was very, very clean, which is so important (at least to me, the mom). Everything was as stated on your web site, and we felt very much at home there. I was in awe of the dining room table as well.. too pretty to eat at, but we did. Having the washer & dryer in the room was truly a help. The kids so enjoyed the pool, and slide. We would highly recommend this condo to any of our friends, family, and anyone else on the Disboards, which we belong to. Windsor Hills is also in a very accommodating location, everything is very close, especially Disney.

Thank for a lovely stay!

The condo was absolutely fabulous!

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: September 27, 2007

The condo was absolutely fabulous! I'm always a little apprehensive when renting
a condo online, wondering about things like: were the pictures on the website actually taken at the condo I'll be renting? Is it clean? Are there plastic cups that we can take to the pool? Blow dryer? Will I be able to figure out the internet access? Are the beds lumpy and outdated? Is the condo in a secure area? etc. etc. I wasted my time worrying about ANY of those things. Everything was perfect! I've never seen such a well-stocked kitchen and the beds were heavenly, especially after a long day at one of the parks. My favorite time of each day, though, came in the evenings when we could sit out on the balcony with a couple of frosty drinks and enjoy the pool view.

Thanks for a great stay and I'll definitely be in touch the next time we're headed to Orlando.

Hi Richie.

Just a quick thank you for letting us use your SUPERB Windsor Hills Pool Condo in October. We really did think this was the best Florida holiday that we have ever had. Your condo is beautiful and I believe that we left it the way we found it. It was perfect when we arrived and we have absolutely no negative comments at all. Both our daughter and her friend thoroughly enjoyed the pool and we thought it great that we could keep an eye on them whilst they were there. We would recommend yourself, your condo and your letting company to anyone. We could have happily moved into a condo such as yours and lived there forever. It is simply fantastic. We will be dropping you a line next year and hoping that you have availability and will accept us again.
Very best wishes.

It is beautiful and Windsor Hills is so beautiful! We loved the pool and the kids enjoyed playing ping pong, pool, and walking to the basketball courts for a quick game. I loved that it was all with in 5 minutes of Disney. We could go and do all of the Disney stuff and then come back and truly relax and feel on vacation in your condo and that beautiful pool! I can understand why you love it so! My husband is a Civil Engineer and is always so busy and this was just a perfect way for him to unwind! Thank you so much! Also, I loved the keypad entry; it was nice not to have to worry about keeping track of keys!

Thank you for having such a beautiful condo! It was a trip that my family will remember forever!

Hi Richie;

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. There was enough space for our whole family who could retreat to their own bedrooms. The pool, slide and hot tub were gorgeous and we used them every day. The view from your condo is what sold me on choosing your place to stay in. I couldn’t wait until morning to open up the blinds. The condo was also very well equipped with everything that we could possibly need. Windsor Hills is just a short drive from all of the Disney theme parks. We would definitely recommend your condo as a place to stay when in Orlando to our friends and relatives. We would also like to come back for another stay.

Happy New Year Richie and Family,

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for all you've done to help our family plan our dream holiday in Orlando. Your condo was awesome and exactly what a family our size (4 adults and 2 children) needed. The kids loved the pool and movie theater as well as all the Disney characters that greeted in their room. We loved sitting out on the lanai in the morning sipping our coffee and tea and being able to relax in the Jacuzzi after a long day on our feet.

This condo is laid out perfectly. It's spacious and very comfortable not to mention was fully stocked with EVERYTHING we needed (even a crock pot). It was nice to be able to put in some chicken and ribs before leaving in the morning and having a fully cooked meal ready for us when we returned.

A suite half this size was going for over $700 a night at the Disney Resorts and with Disney being literally a five minute drive away we really couldn't have asked for more.

Most of all it was wonderful getting to know you throughout this process. You took us through every step needed and answered each and every question we had. You really helped make our vacation planning easy and I will gladly recommend your condo to everyone I know. Furthermore, we will definitely be back.

This place is turn key ready and the owner is the nicest guy you could ever meet!

All the best from our family to yours.

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: December 27, 2008

When looking for Accommodations at any holiday destination it can be cumbersome, overwhelming and frustrating. My concerns were location, size and amenities, let alone the fact that I was booking in high season, Christmas holidays, at the last minute.

Well I lucked out Big Time. Not only did we have the location that was easy access and a short drive to Disney World the condo was very roomy and spacious for our family of 4. Both my kids had their own rooms and our master suite had a private ensuite. It was great for us if we just wanted to hang out and cook our own meals or stay in and not go to any of the attractions.

The amenities were excellent. The kids enjoyed the pool, water slides, the movie theater room on site and the game room. The complex is well designed and my husband and I enjoyed morning runs and then a work out in the gym.

We had a great holiday and would like to thank Richie for accommodating our dates on such short notice. I will recommend you to my friends for future stays.

I brought two employees and a friend down ... We had a conference to attend. We loved the accommodations. I can’t think of anything that would have made our stay more pleasurable.
The accommodations were fantastic, the view great and the grounds beautiful. I think I convinced one of them that staying in a $175 night hotel is a waste when you can stay for less in such a wonderful place. It was extremely convenient when accessing the parks. We went several days and did not have to leave so early b/c of the proximity. Thanks for working with me and providing such a great place to stay. I have to return to Orlando in mid-may for a conference with my software vendor and am thinking of bringing the kids down. I would love to return to this condo for accommodations.

I've been back to work for 2 days and keep wishing I was back in Orlando -- even if the heat index hit 110 one of the days we were there! My sister joined us. It was nice for her to have her own space. I never would have invited her if we were in a traditional hotel room.

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: May 23, 2009

Richie,

I have been meaning to send you an email since we've got back. My family and I had a spectacular time in Florida, and a large part of that was due to the condo! It was absolutely beautiful!! The location of it could not have been better as well. We would all really like to thank you for such a wonderful place to stay at while we where in Florida!!! We will definitely be choosing your condo again on our next visit (hopefully sooner than later.) Also just wanted to say the beds were amazingly comfortable! I haven't slept that well in a long time!

Thanks again

Your accommodations were absolutely perfect

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: November 23, 2009

Hi Richie,

I realized today that I never emailed an 'official' thank you for our fabulous stay at your condo! When did I realize it?? When all of my family was sitting around today talking about how we are all so ready to go back and stay there again!!

Your accommodations were absolutely perfect. You know that I was a little hesitant at first renting from someone we did not know, but you made me feel completely at ease about it from the start.

The condo was clean, had plenty of room and had everything we needed to enjoy our week stay. We travelled with a small child and I was a little anxious about the pack-n-play and high chair, but it all was just perfect (and he loved all the Disney characters who greeted him when he walked in!)

My parents slept in the master and wished they could have taken the bed and shower back to Texas with them!

Most importantly, you were so helpful along the way, going above and beyond to provide me answers to all my questions. I know for sure we will be heading back to your condo in the near future.

Thank you for everything,

We stayed at other condos but yours was the best

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: December 17, 2009

Richie, Richie, RICHIE!

Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that we absolutely LOVED staying at your family's condo 12/17-22. It was a wonderful home-away-from-home and enhanced our vacation. We respected your property and truly cared for it as if it was our own! We will definitely rent this condo from you again on future trips, if available.

We've stayed at other condos in the area, but yours was the BEST, by far. We appreciated that you had plenty of dishes, flatware, bake ware & the spice rack was a nice bonus :)

Check-in was seamless. Your written welcome packet was very clear and thorough. That was MUCH appreciated! We didn't have a chance to use the pool as the weather wasn't as cooperative as we would've hoped but that didn't deter us from enjoying your property!

Thanks again!!

Wonderful week at your beautifully furnished condo

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: February 27, 2010

Richie:

Just a quick note to thank you for a wonderful week at your beautifully furnished and very well equipped lovely Windsor Hills condo. You really have thought of everything to make your renters comfortable, and your homes proximity to the Disney parks was such a bonus. The condo looks great with its freshly painted walls, and the colors are very warm and soothing. The kids enjoyed the heated pool and jacuzzi every night despite the chilly air. On our final morning when I went to wake my kids, they were both sleeping in the king bed with your entire collection of Disney stuffed animals surrounding them...quite a picture!

I hope we have the pleasure of renting your home again.

Thanks, Richie.

Richie.

Thank you VERY much for the use of your condo.
Everything was great and we had a WONDERFUL time.
Loved the condo. It had plenty of room for our family to relax and visit when we were there.
The kids loved the pool and the hours to swim were perfect.
The distance from the condo to the Disney parking lots was about 15 mintues which was really nice.

We are already looking forward to our next trip and hope to return in the future!

Thanks again Richie

I have to tell you, I was so impressed

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: February 13, 2011

Richie,

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your condo at Windsor Hills. This was the first time we have gone to Disney without staying on property and I have to tell you, it was so much better than we expected!! The amount of flexibility you have by staying outside of Disney, but so close was great. We were able to do everything we wanted at Disney, but also enjoy many of the other activities in Orlando. We went to Universal, shopped, played mini-golf, and ate at so many different restaurants.........it was wonderful!

The condo was everything you put on the website and more. The layout is spacious with a real "home" feel to it. You have gone out of your way to make sure the unit has all of the amenities you could hope for. Other than some food shopping, we didn't need anything else. From the kitchen to the pool toys, you have it covered. Guests coming in can feel comfortable that "everything" is included!!

I have to tell you, I was so impressed, I wished we would have thought of buying a unit years ago!! Thank you once again and we'll be looking forward to our next stay with you.

Your condo is very big with a spectacular view!

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: May 7, 2010

Hi Richie,

We were very happy we could stay at your lovely condo at Windsor Hills Resort (7th of May - 21st of May). We felt very safe and happy at the resort.

And your condo is very big with a spectacular view! Our son loved the plates and still talks about it at home :-)

And we also loved the big pool. Your condo is close to all the theme parks and close to all the stores. Our son doesn't like driving around in the car.

So we were very happy that all theme parks were around your condo.
My mother was very happy that the building had an elevator!!!

And thank you so much for answering all my e-mails (and you got many mails from me).

Thanks for everything, we had a really great vacation and we hope to visit some day!!
Regards,

What a beautiful condo!

Review submitted: September 26, 2012   Date of arrival: June 12, 2010

Hi Richie:

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

We loved your condo.

Richie,

Thank you for letting us use your condo this week. We all loved it. My wife's first response was that she would stay there again, and that after only being there 5 minutes. My kids felt at home and often would say they wanted to go "home" after a long day at Disney. We loved being so close to Disney and the pool. We liked the care that was taken by staff with the pool.
Thank you so much for letting us use your home
