Can’t even begin to put in to words how amazing Windwood bay Disney villa is. Absolutely gorgeous villa, excellent facilities and value for money. Very handy to championsgate where there are plenty of food outlets and a supermarket. Very reasonable travelling distance to theme parks. But above all of this the communication with Steve and sue the owners was outstanding! They honestly cannot do enough to help. This was our second visit to the villa and we will definitely be back
Tracey from Lincoln United Kingdom October 2018
Same as my last review really! Still excellent.
Location is perfect and so close to everything we needed. Even the I4 was kind to us this trip.
The villa is always being updated with furnishings and technology. Since our last trip there is a new HUGE television in the lounge, new reclining power sofas and dining table. New bedding in all 5 bedrooms.
Read my last review from October 16 and add this one to it and you won't go far wrong
Thanks again Steve & Sue for letting us stay in your home
Lesley from Maesteg, United Kingdom October 2018
Lovely property Ideal for a large group.
I've been to Florida a number of times this villa is one of the best I've stayed in.
Usually stay in a gated community but felt really safe in this area.
Management company called in to make sure there was no problems with the property.
Would definitely stay here again.
Theresa from Swindon, United Kingdom August 2018
We have just returned from a wonderful three week holiday. The villa was amazing. Ideal location, very quiet, pool was not over looked, close to the parks and local restaurants and shops. The villa was very well presented, incredibly clean, comfortable beds and reclining sofas were much appreciated after a day at the park. My son loved the games room and play station. My daughter spent every spare moment in the pool and now wants her bedroom decorated in the same way.
It had everything we could have possibly needed to make our stay perfect.
Steve was brilliant in answering any questions I had. Communication was great.
We were all so sad to leave and would not hesitate in recommending it.
Collette from Chelmsford, Essex, United Kingdom July 2018
Well what can I say, this villa is everything you could ask for, beautiful community, local to all shops and amenities, the villa inside and out is exceptionally of high standards and you will not be unhappy. I have now rented this villa from Steve and Sue for the past 4 years and would never think of renting anywhere else.
As you enter the villa, it has lovely big bright rooms with all the modern touches, huge lounge and kitchen with everything in it, the master bedroom is huge with its own seating area and walk in closet and en suite, there is a lovely big games room for the children upstairs with PS4 etc which is great while the rest of the group get ready to go out. All the bedrooms are decorated beautifully.
The pool area is great with a huge pool and separate Jacuzzi ,plenty of sun loungers and chairs, including a large table and chairs for you to sit out and have your evening meal.
There is a games room downstairs with plenty to do in it. Everything included, towels, stair gates, pushchairs, highchairs, cots, BBQ .
The owners themselves and the management company go up and beyond to make sure that you have a wonderful time staying in the villa.
This villa comes with high recommendations from me and my family and we cannot wait to go back in October 2019!
Thank you Steve and Sue for letting us stay again, look forward to next year.
Sandra from Hampshire, United Kingdom May 2018
Our stay at the property was excellent. This Villa has everything that you need to have an enjoyable stay.
The pictures on the site are great but to be honest the Villa is more than any picture can show. Its outstanding and is very central to most attractions you would want to visit.
Anyone who rents this Villa will not be disappointed.
Angela from Stouffville, Canada March 2018
This house is perfect for a family group to have a great vacation. The facilities are really good, the house is clean and everything is provided. This is the second year we have stayed there and we would definitely come again.
Jodie from Sunderland , United Kingdom March 2018
Just arrived home after an amazing holiday with all our family. The villa was faultless absolutely beautiful in great location will most definitely be booking it again on our next trip.
Julia from Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom February 2018
This property was amazing. They had thought of everything you may need during your holiday even down to two sat navs and two pushchairs. The property was so spacious with three separate sitting areas and a games room. We were over the moon when we arrived.
The area was quiet and backed onto a conservation area so each morning we were delighted with some beautiful birds and butterflies
We would not hesitate to recommend this property and we hope to visit again soon
Jan from Catterick Garrison, United Kingdom October 2017
Just back from Windwood bay Disney villa and what can I say. what an amazing place all you could ask for and much more. Such a lovely house with all the the facilities you could possibly need beautifully decorated and plenty of space, sue and Steve the owners really helpful and informative would definitely stay here again.
Nicola from Basingstoke, United Kingdom September 2017
We stayed at windwood bay for 3weeks a family of 9 with 2 2yr olds and the villa was absolutely brilliant we all loved it was local to disney. on arrival we had a lovely welcome pack.
We was their when hurricane urma arrived communication with Steve and Andy was absolutely brilliant would defiantly recommend this villa to everyone we know
Andrew from Nottingham , United Kingdom August 2017
Facilities are excellent - there is everything you can hope to need. We were a party of 8 and the villa had plenty of space.
Colin from Norfolk, United Kingdom August 2017
This property is superb, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. We stayed recently as a large family group of nine plus an eight month old and it worked very well. It's location is perfect for access to the Disney and Universal parks. There are two Publix supermarkets within five minutes drive. It's s a very quiet location.
The house facilities are excellent and the owners have clearly thought about the needs of holidaying parties. The main bedroom is enormous and the bed is very comfortable. But it is the little things that really matter. There are plenty of towels to use, the safe is big enough for a large parties valuables etc. Lots of of comfy chairs for those relaxing evenings after a day trekking across the parks. The pool area is also very good and the outside table is perfect for a snack or evening drinks. The real indulgence is the hot tub which was in regular use during our visit. If you want a really good villa close to the parks, that is comfortable and well equipped, you will go a long way to beat this. Finally the U.K owner is very accessible and responsive to any pre holiday questions you may have. If you book it you won't regret it .
Richard from Newton Aycliffe, United Kingdom May 2017
My wife and I have been coming to Florida most years since the mid 1980s. We have stayed in many villas all over Kissimmee and Davenport. We tend to think that the choice of villa is one of the most important elements of the holiday, and without doubt this is the best that we have stayed in. It is spacious, comfortable, well located, and situated in a peaceful setting backing onto a conservation area. The owners have provided every extra and refinement that you could possibly want, and both they and the villa management respond immediately to requests or general correspondence.
The villa is ideal for large party's, or simply those whom want something special. It offers easy access to the Theme Parks and Malls via the I4. Publix supermarket is a 5 minute drive away, and there are good shops and restaurants at Champions gate which is less than 5 minutes away.
Nicole from Sarnia, Canada March 2017
We loved this house. We enjoyed everything about it, from the large bedrooms, the fun games room to the heated pool and hot tub. Our family of four and my sister's family of five stayed together for a week and there was more than enough room for everyone (including an extra bedroom and pullout couch). The house is perfectly located- close to theme parks and attractions, but in a quiet subdivision away from traffic. Communication from the owner, Steve, was always timely and helpful. He answered all of our questions, as well as offered advise for our stay. Entry into the property was easy and convenient upon arrival. We were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and size of the house. The welcome package was a nice surprise and did make us feel welcome. We had all the amenities we needed for the week. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to rent in the Orlando area. And we will definitely stay here again.
Angela from Stouffville, Canada March 2017
This house was perfect for a family of adults and children - plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, 3 separate living areas, great games room and a safe pool environment. Plenty of outdoor seating in an enclosed lanai and in easy driving distance of all of Orlando's attractions. The house was clean, well equipped and very spacious. We wished we had booked for two weeks instead of one!
Loraine from Sneads Ferry, USA stayed November 2016
Our family had a fabulous Disney vacation at this gorgeous home! We had 6 adults and 4 children and everyone had enough space to spread out! The kitchen is spacious and we loved having all of the living area rooms. The kids went to the den at 6:30am every day and played in there without bothering the adults and they loved the game room!! They all want air hockey tables!! On the 2 days that we didn't go to the parks we used the pool and hot tub. I researched many properties and this house checked all my priorities. All of the pictures of the house are accurate. A Publix grocery store is minutes away and highway 4 is an easy on and off. The most time it took to get to the parks was 20 minutes and that was because of some traffic. This house is equipped with a tremendous amount of dinnerware and glassware. Lots of plastic cups and dishes for children and for the pool. The owner, Steve Mcvay, was always quick to answer any of my questions. I planned this trip a year in advance and we were always communicating. We also had use of 2 of their jogging strollers, but used just one for the 5yr old when he got tired and the storage area was great for snack bags and jackets. I would definitely recommend this beautiful home to a large family or friends who all want to be together and not to be in separate hotel rooms!!
Tracey from Lincoln United Kingdom stayed October 2016
We have just returned from our first stay in Steve & Sue's wonderful villa.
From the first enquiry about the villa we have had fantastic communication with Steve and nothing was too much trouble.
I will admit that I did have concerns over the property being on a non-gated community. My concerns were totally unfounded as I have never felt so safe before and we have stayed on gated too! Windwood Bay has a lot of people who 'live' there, there is always someone around, washing cars etc.
Obviously I had seen the pictures on here before we arrived but I was very pleasantly surprised to find it better than I expected.
The first thing that we really appreciated was not having to carry keys and worry about loosing them. You are given your own code to get in, so its very secure.
We then totally appreciated a lovely welcome basket. thanks for the wine
The sofa was extremely comfy and most welcome after a busy park day. The TV was huge with a great range of channels and most importantly, it was easy to use (some villas TV's need a high IQ to make sense of).
The villa had a very large and user friendly kitchen and there was more than enough cups and plates etc.
1 bed downstairs and 4 upstairs. The master was enormous and the walk in wardrobe was bigger than most peoples bedrooms alone!
All of the beds were super comfy and there were plenty of pillows.
There was also tons of towels.
Most villas have a games room but this is the only one that we have found very useable. The reason for this is that they have fitted in an air con unit and we spent quite a lot of time in there (I got totally thrashed at pool on a regular basis).
As we were there in October we did pay to have the pool heated and it was WONDERFUL. The temperature was just right. We have had heating in previous villas and it has been too hot, this one was just right (I sound a bit like Goldilocks ).
We met the MC for the villa as he was doing a water quality check on the hot tub one day, he was a real nice guy and also lives on Windwood Bay, so thats another bonus.
We used the hot tub more than I thought we would, it was a brilliant bonus. You could almost feel the aches and pains of a full day on your feet leaving you. It was heavenly.
The alarm system for the villa was very easy to use, I could go on and I am sure I have missed something.
Thanks again to Steve & Sue, I am sure you will be hearing from us again soon
Kelly from Bolton, United Kingdom stayed September 2016
I have just returned from my second stay at Steve's beautiful villa. There were 3 adults (who have stayed before) and the villa was just as stunning as before. Steve has clearly continued to maintain the high standard of the villa; with comfy furnishings and fittings and all the furniture in pristine condition. The villa is very spacious and allows all parties to have their own down time if needed; with the games room being a bit hit again. We continued to love the extra effort that Steve puts in; the welcome pack, complimentary sat nav, the ample amount of cutlery etc. and Steve is fantastic as an owner (checking in regularly to make sure everything is ok). The location is perfect; with easy access to the I4 for all parks and in close proximity of gas stations, restaurants and supermarkets. Once again, I cannot fault the villa and Steve, as a owner, goes above and beyond expectations. We will definitely be returning (again)!
Lucy from Bristol, United Kingdom stayed August 2016
This villa is beautifully clean and incredibly spacious. It has everything you could possibly want for. The beds are really comfortable. The games room is great. Pool is big enough for 4 kids to splash around in. Had a few issues with spa...no instructions on the upkeep and seemed to be losing water. Would recommend this villa. It is in a nice area, close to champions gate for shopping and restaurants. Quiet road that leads to the 192 quickly. And can be within Disney in around 15mins.
The guy that looks after the villa is very nice and helpful
Collette from Chelmsford, United Kingdom stayed June 2016
I have no worries when going to Steve's and Sue's villa. This villa has everything you could need and more, location is great, management company is A++, the hospitality of the welcome pack is great, I simply cannot fault anything about it, as I have said in previous reviews I feel I don't need to look anywhere else this villa has it all. My family are looking forward to going back in 2017. Thank you Steve & Sue for letting us have the pleasure staying here once again x
Sarah Large Group from Cwmbran, United Kingdom stayed March 2016
Been to Orlando several times and this was by far the best villa we have stayed in.
Prior to our holiday the communication with the villa owner was great. They helped loads when we were looking to book. They were very understanding when we had to cancel due to a family bereavement and were very accommodating when we were ready to rebook.
We were a mixed group of 5 adults, two 10 year olds and a baby. The very spacious villa catered for everyone and it was a pleasure spending time there. The boys loved the pool and den and the adults found the living area very comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. Beds were very comfy which was a big plus for us (previously villas we have stayed in have left us with sleepless nights).
Excellent location - far better commute to Disney World than Kissimmee where we've stayed previously. The local supermarket Publix is small than Walmart which made shopping a lot easier!
Cannot fault the villa in any way. Saving our pennies so we can return again one day.
Sharanne from London Ontario, Canada stayed December 2015
Our family comprised of 9 - teenagers to adults stayed at this wonderful property from Dec 27, 2015 for one week. The home is exactly as described in the write up. We arrived to discover the outside of the house decorated in blow up Christmas decorations and lights! Inside had a Christmas tree and decorations as well-this was very festive!
This is a beautiful home with well-appointed features. All amenities are provided that you may need. The heart of the home is the kitchen and it is spacious! We ate all our meals at home and found the kitchen to be thoroughly stocked for the enjoyment of food preparation- even corn forks!
We were very impressed with the tasteful signage for renter information security etc and the complete binder with appliance manuals. This was quite helpful.
Loved the fact that the laundry facilities are on the 2nd floor. The bedrooms are great- one could probably put 2 kids in the walk in closet in the Master bedroom- this room is huge. Everyone was very happy with their rooms. The family room/game TV/sectional furniture on the 2nd floor gave privacy and additional space for our teens. My husband & I chose to stay in the main floor bedroom- private bathroom for our own retreat.
It was lovely to have the garage games room. We also made use of the cooler on our day to Daytona Beach.
I am sure that these are mentioned in the VRBO write up but these comforts still added a delightful surprise- dishes and glasses for outside use; the pool washroom; the pool towels. We had very warm weather and utilized the enclosed lanai extensively. We even watched neighbourhood fireworks on New Year’s Eve from the pool.
This is a centrally located home. It is prepared for children of all ages with high chairs etc. We discovered back routes to avoid the Interstate which was a welcome relief to the Christmas traffic.
The Owners and Manager take great pride in this home and it is maintained with thoughtful consideration of enabling visitors to enjoy their vacation care free. We would heartily endorse this home for anyone coming to central Florida.
Jennifer from Listowel, Ontario, Canada stayed December 2015
We stayed in this home over Christmas 2015. It was an amazing experience. The house is lovely, clean and well equipped. Steve and Sue (owners) and Andy (management company) are great to work with. I would highly recommend this property to others.
Michelle from Happy Valley, USA stayed November 2015
We absolutely loved the house.It was clean and roomy and Stephen was wonderful if we needed anything he got right back to us. The hot tub was especially wonderful and the welcome basket was a very kind gesture with champagne to celebrate my Son's engadgment. A+ we will be returning for sure!! Best vacation ever
Review submitted by Teri Stayed 23 Apr 2015 with Family This home is exactly as described. It's roomy, clean and was ready for us when we arrived. The owner, Steve was easy to work with, he was always prompt in responding to my questions even with a significant time zone difference. He is in the UK and I'm on the US west coast. We had 6 adults and 2 children in the group, we stayed for 12 nights, the home would easily have been comfortable for a larger group. We used the hot tub and the pool daily. I wish that I had had more time to enjoy the home but roller coasters won out over down time. If I had a wish list for my next stay it would be for larger pots and pans in the kitchen. I would/will stay here again (and again) and recommend it for large groups and multiple families. Thank you Sue & Steve for a lovely place to stay after a long day at the parks.
Review submitted by Joe from Oregon USA April 2015
Hi Steve! We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation at your home in Windwood Bay during our stay in March - please feel free to use our testimonial on your rental page: Absolutely fantastic home right off the Ronald Reagan Parkway - so close to Disney, and easy access to the I4 for our days at Universal Studios. Golf opportunities are within a short drive at Champion's Gate, Reunion and Mystic Dunes... Highland Reserve is just up the 27. Publix grocery store is just up the Old Lake Wilson Road - quick trip. Also, close to shopping at Posner Park, and lots of restaurant options for those nights we didn't want to cook - try Sweet Tomatoes up on the 192, terrific fresh buffet! The house itself is lovely - lots of dishes, towels, blankets, sheets, baby equipment, and even an electric BBQ. Beds are comfortable, and the mattresses all seem new and in great condition. The GPS came in so handy, and was a much appreciated amenity. The lounge areas are comfortable, tvs and ceiling fans in every room. Pool was clean, and the hot tub was spotless - we loved afternoons and evenings just relaxing - lots of pool furniture for everyone to enjoy sitting in the sun. Lots of brochures, books, and the kids so very much enjoyed the games room too. There is even an AC unit in the garage so that room is very comfortable to play in. Pictures depict EXACTLY what the house looks like, and the instructions on how to use everything were clear and easy to find. Andy from the Management Company was awesome - he came by a few times to check in, and we appreciated that greatly! Thank you so much!

Review Submitted by Kelly from Bolton November 2014
Steve's villa is absolutely stunning. We were greeted with a lovely welcome pack, the complimentary sat nav is fantastic and the owners really have thought of everything. The villa looks even better in person! The bedrooms are well equipped and the beds are very comfy. Each having an en-suite was fantastic for the mornings. There are three lounge type/relaxing areas and there is enough space for everybody! The pool area is great, with comfy loungers that you are able to use straight after swimming (as they're not material) and the hot tub is amazing! There is nothing that isn't provided in the villa and I would recommend this villa to everybody!
Review Submitted by Collette from Essex October 2014
You will truly not be disappointed staying here, the villa was more than I expected. The villa has all the home comforts you could require and the location to all the parks, shops, restaurants etc is brilliant. I could not rate this house enough and am thinking of going back next year, I for one will not be booking anything else other than this one, its child friendly and the pool and outside area is great, clean and not overlooked.
I would definitely recommend this villa
Review Submitted by Keren from Bristol 27th August 2014
The villa was exactly as it is in the pictures and in fact better than advertised!
Our group consisted of two families - a three and a four - and the villa was perfect.
We never felt that we were under each others feet and always had plenty of room. Having our own pool was fantastic and the hot tub was lovely - a great place to view the wildlife which even consisted of a racoon wandering by one day!
The fact that the villa is not overlooked is a key selling point. We felt perfectly safe in the house knowing that it was fully alarmed whether we were in situ or away for the day.
Having a safe was also invaluable.
We stayed in the villa for a month and by the time we left, we all viewed it as home. The contact with the owner beforehand was important and Steve also made recommendations which were very useful, the swamp tour in particular was amazing.
We only had a couple of minor issues whilst we were staying and these were dealt with by the invisible Andy! We even received a response one night which was out of the specified hours and it was nice to know that our voicemail was picked up straight away.
The area was very quiet which we really liked and although Champions Gate doesn't have much in the way of restaurants etc. not only is the 192 not that far away, but it would appear that Champions Gate is about to be developed to cater for the many visitors.
All in all we would have no hesitation about recommending the villa. Thank you for letting us stay.
Review Submitted by Chris from Berkshire 1st June 2014
I stayed in Steve's villa this May from 6th till the 23rd and honestly couldn't speak highly enough about it.
I've stayed in enough villas to know a good one when I see it and this is hands down the best one I've ever stayed in for a number of reasons -
Location - None of the parks are far away, close to restaurants etc.
Size - It's massive!
Amenities - There wasn't a single thing we needed or wanted that wasn't in the villa for us to use
The pool area - Just wow, spent many an afternoon/evening messing around in the pool/hot tub and drinking round the table!
Steve's attention to detail speaks volume as well, nothing is too much for him and he went out of his way several times to make our trip incredible!
I won't even be considering other villas for next years trip to Orlando, I will just book with Steve as I know how good it will be.
Review Submitted by Nadya from Newcastle 16th January 2014
What can I say apart from absolutely fantastic villa!. We loved every moment at this place from lounging around the huge pool to spending precious family time in the games room. Every possible extra is provided, even down to 2 highchairs in the kitchen which came in handy for our 2 year old. The villa is so spacious we all had room to relax even though there
was 10 of us!. We really enjoyed the layout of the kitchen and lounge area as it meant I could keep an eye on the little ones watching TV whilst making dinner. Every area in the house was spotless and had plenty of the little touches like thick fluffy towels and even a toddler step and seat in one of the many bathrooms.
The area itself was very peaceful and easy to access the parks and attractions, shops and a few places to eat were nearby which was very handy. The management company were also top notch, very helpful at any time of day or night and the owners themselves were so great in handling every detail and question I had. All in all an amazing villa that we would love to visit again and would recommend to anyone.
Review submitted by Deborah from Leeds 6th November 2013
This has without a doubt been the best experience in booking privately owned accommodation I have had. Right from the initial very simple booking process, communication from the owner was excellent. The arrival/check in instructions were very simple an everything worked exactly as it should - even the directions given from the airport were so easy & a great route to use. The villa itself was fantastic, there were 4 adults & 4 kids and we had lots of room to spare and never felt crowded. We had plenty of room to either all socialise in the family room or if we wanted a break from each other there was plenty of room to escape too! All of the facilities provided in the home were great, there was nothing more we could've wanted. The pool area was wonderful with plenty of
comfortable loungers and it was all very relaxing after the long park days. The welcome pack for our arrival was a lovely touch also as its not something I would normally expect.
The location of the villa was ideal, a few minutes away from a large supermarket and the I4 which gave very easy access to the Disney area (10 mins) and further to Universal (20 mins), it was very easy to find our way around. Both the villa owner Steve & Andy from the management co were very proactive in making sure we were ok, having a great time and if we needed anything. We didn't require their assistance whilst we were there but I know that if we had have, they would have been there immediately.
All in all we had a wonderful time in this villa and would not hesitate to stay again and would recommend to anybody.

Villa sited in excellent area. Had everything we needed. The owner and Andy from the management company were very helpful and did ever thing we asked and more.
Beds are really comfy a home from home.
Lots of wildlife in the back of the villa including the armadillo and racoon.
Thanks for making the holiday the best.
Review submitted by Louise from Fareham Hants Submitted: Tues 27th August 2013
Fabulous Villa, two families stayed together. It was a pleasure to be greeted with a welcome basket and the wine was very welcome after the journey.
The rooms are incredible and very spacious. Kitchen is great all you could possibly need.
The children loved the games room (as well as the adults) and having fans in it kept the room lovely and cool. Air con through out the villa very nice after a hot day out.
Swimming pool and Hot Tub were a complete dream to use. It felt as we were being thoroughly spoilt staying in the villa.
We have previously stayed near I drive and were concerned if travelling to the parks would be a tedious journey, but no, its a great location and so easy to access all parks.
The property manager Andy was very helpful and gave us advice on close areas to eat etc. great advice to go to Rolling Oaks, good value and choice.
Steve stayed in touch while we were away, communication throughout the whole booking process and holiday is amazing.
We used the Car on the Drive facility as advised by Steve, wish we had known about this on previous visits, its brilliant and the gentleman who took us to and from the airport was incredibly helpful with tips on what else to do and how to get to various locations easier.
Would without doubt recommend the villa and would love to stay again, would not stay any where else.
Thank you for a great time.
Review submitted by Jackie from Liverpool Submitted: Fri, 9th August 2013
Where to start? We have recently stayed in this villa and I could not recommend it highly enough. Firstly, the owners - they could not be more helpful. I spoke to Steve before we booked and he was more than happy to chat to me about the villa and answer the many questions I had.
The location - the villa is on a well kept and quiet estate. It's just down the road from the Champions Gate area where there is a large Publix supermarket, some other shops, takeaways, garages and a couple of restaurants. This is also just next to the I4 from where you can access all of the attractions in Orlando and further afield.
The villa itself - it is a well kept, clean, two storey property which has been decorated and furnished to a high, modern standard. There is a formal living and dining area as you enter the property but we tended to use the family room and dining area attached to the kitchen at the back of the house. This is a lovely open plan area which looks out onto the pool area. The pool area has been extended
and includes a fabulous hot tub which we loved. The pool furniture is new and, again, is of a modern style. There is an outdoor toilet facility attached to the pool area. There is a fabulous games room in the converted garage plus a massive den area on the second floor which has a PS3. There is one on- suite bedroom on the ground floor, the other bedrooms are upstairs. All of the bedrooms have
great built in storage and drawer space. The master suite is huge and there is an extra room attached for storage etc. There is a safe in this room as well as iron, ironing board etc. The utility room is also upstairs which houses a large washing machine and dryer. How great it is to be able to do most of your washing before you come home? There are plenty of towels in all of the bathrooms and lots of extras in a cupboard on the landing. Pool towels are also provided.
There are TVs in all bedrooms and there are large screened TVs in the family room and upstairs den. You can access hundreds of TV channels if you so wish. There's use of a Sat Nav which we found a must. There's also free WI-FI which is easy to access.
Honestly, I think the owner has catered for every eventuality. The villa is equipped with everything that we needed. It really was a home from home and I would go back tomorrow if I could.

Review for: Windwood Bay Disney Villa
"Fantastic villa, excellent value for money and certainly lived up to the description. Would recommend this villa for hire, nice quiet location and easy drive to shops and attractions. Nice added benefit of a hot tub and outside changing room. Nice sunny patio with plenty of seating. For visitors with children the games room will occupy the children when having a
lazy day round the pool. Great sized rooms."
Value: Excellent, Met expectations: Yes – satisfied, Recommend: Definitely, Overall: Excellent
Review submitted by Keith & Connie from Leeds Submitted: 9th May 2013
Our First Villa Holiday
Our party consisted of 3 adult couples. We arrived late at night so on first glance were very impressed with the villa and all of its amenities'. After choosing our rooms all of which were well presented and equipped with good bathrooms and lots of storage space, including one on the ground floor with on suite, we all had some much needed sleep. Next morning we all agreed on the comfort of the beds with one person likening her experience to 'sleeping on a cloud'. Everything we
could possibly want or need was provided, from high technology PS3 & TV's to free Wi-Fi, sat nav(Tom Tom), laundry and AC. Parks and shopping were all easily accessible and the proximity of the I-4 very useful.
Andy (the property manager) was a local and personal fountain of knowledge and SO helpful, even loaning one of the party a smart phone charger as it had been left behind in England. The owners Steve & Sue were in touch to ensure our holiday was going smoothly and remained on hand in case we had any queries. They'd already helped out with suggestions for
car hire and a really cool site for discounted park tickets.....thanks for that tip ! We did our best to sample all the villa had to offer and managed to use the pool (water temp 80f without extra heating). The bug proof mesh cover around the outdoor pool area was great ,especially as the Love Bugs were around. We also used the hot tub, the electric BBQ and the games room. The games room is a great extra and I'm sure if we'd been there longer we'd have made more use of
it. Even 2 weeks isn't enough time to really enjoy this well equipped and well looked after villa. For all of us the villa was a great accommodation choice, even for those of us who'd visited the Orlando area before. We'd certainly recommend the villa to our families and friends and hope we may make a return visit ourselves in the future.

This was our first holiday home rental in Florida, we had previously stayed at Disney hotels. The quality of the villa is excellent all the rooms are vey spacious and well furnished the beds
are very comfortable. It was great for our grown up family. Everything we needed was provided the tom tom (sat nav) was invaluable.
The location of the villa is very good for visiting all the major attractions which take between 15 and 30 minutes to reach. The supermarket is only a few minutes away by car.
Steve and Sue couldn't have been more helpful giving us contact details for car hire, attraction
tickets etc. and answering any questions prior to us leaving and during our stay.
Thank you both.
Andy the manager was also very helpful. Only one problem we weren't there long enough we could have easily have stayed here longer to enjoy the beautiful pool and hot tub. Wonderful holiday hope we can use this villa in the not too distant future.
Thank You for sharing your lovely home with us.
Shirley and Ken

We enjoyed our stay in your home. The pictures were true to the house. The kids enjoyed the game room especially the air hockey table. It was nice to have a variety of chairs available outside by the pool. We loved the hot tub. Everything in the house met our expectations. All your amenities and utensils were as specified. I wish only that we had access to a gas grill.
We hope to be returning in 2014. Thanks for the memorable experience.

We just wanted to say thanks for the house. My family had a great time and everything was perfect with the home. This was our 7th different home rental and all but one of them was good, but we found our favourite. Hopefully it will be available for our trip next February. Thanks again, Will

Wonderful place to stay with family. We had ten in our group and we had more than enough space for everybody.
The amenities that are offered are great and everything you need is pretty much provided by the owner. With five kids with us the game room was a big plus and also the PS3 was great as well. The home is decorated with a lot of class and
style along with all the technology and entertainment you would have at your own house. We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend staying here to a family or even two families. Steven the owner is great and very helpful and was in contact during the booking and also during our stay. He made sure that we got to the house safely and made sure we had everything we needed.
Again thanks Steven for your kindness and making us feel welcome in your home.

This is a wonderful villa in an excellent location, this was our 10th visit to Orlando and without doubt the best accommodation we have experienced.
The quality of the villa is of a very high standard all the rooms are very well finished.
Everything you could possibly need is supplied (even a Sat Nav), the games room was very popular with my family. Pool and deck were super (soon to be even better I understand) Excellent communications with the Villa owners Steve and Sue. I can not think of anything that could have been better!
Good local shops and food outlets, and easy access to all the local attractions via the I-4.
Disney only 15 minutes drive away. Overall a great experience and I would strongly recomend this Villa.

Your home is beautiful. We had a great time. We were unable to enjoy the pool due to the rainy weather, but overall beautiful place to stay. Also it was not far from the theme parks and local stores. Great location and I hope to rent again in the future!

We really enjoyed the home! It was a perfect fit for our family. Lots of space and the kids loved the pool, game room, and the video games. All of the beds were really comfortable. We would definitely consider staying there again.
Review submitted by Andrew & Maria from Didsbury Alberta date of stay March 2012
We had a wonderful vacation with our family. It was so great to have the space that the property offered. The back yard is facing a bush area, so you have lots of privacy. The house was clean and the pool was great. Thanks for letting us rent your home, it was very pleasurable.
