Winsor Hills Kissimmee Rentals

September 22nd, 2008 Alison Posted in kissimmee florida vacation home rental | No Comments »

Windsor Hills Kissimmee is probably the finest resort close to all the theme parks. If you are looking for the best vacation home rental resort close to Disney World and all the other Orlando attractions then this is the one for you!

Windsor Hills Kissimmee

Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms were built by the same builders. They are separate resorts and both have their own very distinct identity and features. The common feature that both Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms share though is that you just can’t get any closer to Disney World. If you want to be right up close to Mickey Mouse these are the resorts for you.

What does Windsor Hills resort offer? Apart from the fabulous location you will find the facilities of a 5 star resort. All the family will love the huge community pool and water slide. Relax in the spa, watch the children play in the children’s pool with gently shelving beach. Or play a game of pool or table tennis in the clubhouse. A bit more energy? You can work out in the gym or play a game of tennis. If you want to relax and catch a movie there is even a private movie theater. Or perhaps you have forgotten that last minute food item, or just want a snack. Well check out the sundry store. If you don’t want to drive there is even a shuttle to the Orlando theme parks and shopping malls.

I have offered homes on Windsor Palms ever since the resort started. I will confess I wanted to be able to offer guests the choice of homes on Windsor Hills as well and now I am very pleased that I can!

I have a collection of the finest homes on Windsor Hills Reserve. This is the newest part of Windsor Hills and they really did save the best until last. I have a 4 bed and a 6 bed home on Windsor Hills. A lot of 2008 is already gone and they are booking up fast for 2009 so if you want to stay then you really do have to get in quickly.

This is one of the best pool decks available on Windsor Hills Reserve. In fact it is one of the best pool outlooks out there for any Orlando villa……..

Orlando Vacation Home Rental 5 br Pool and Spa

September 3rd, 2008 Alison Posted in kissimmee florida vacation home rental, windsor hills | 1 Comment »

So just which one is my most sought after Orlando vacation home? Well it has to be my Windsor Palms Orlando vacation home which has 5 bedrooms, conservation view, swimming pool and spa. It really has everything that people are looking for.

Disney World Magic Kingdom

You want to be as close as you can to the Magic?

Windsor Palms resort itself is just about as close to Disney World as you can get. You have the convenience of a home so close to Disney World it is easy to return back for a break at the house and a swim in the pool. I only wish that I had more of them for my guests as I do sometimes have to turn down even guests who have stayed with me before as the house is already booked. So it really isn’t hype when I say book ahead for this home as soon as you can as it does go fast. I am even concerned that I will not get my first choice of dates for 2009 as I haven’t reserved it far enough in advance for myself!

Always contact me to double check availability. I do have quieter times so always check first ……… you may get lucky.

So what if my Windsor Palms conservation view home is booked? What are the other alternatives? Well I have another fabulous 5 bed Orlando home to rent which I will admit sometimes gets overlooked. This is also one of my favorites – and is certainly a favorite with many guests who have stayed there. It is my Solana home – located close to Disney, on a resort and has many upgrades. Kids love the Princess and Disney Cars themed rooms. Parents love the fabulous master bedrooms, free wireless internet, even the upgraded audio speakers in the master bedroom. Everyone loves the huge 36′ pool – the largest on the resort. So just where can you find this home?

The Disney Dream Villa

Don’t forget about my brand new Windsor Hills Reserve Homes. Amazing, very upgraded homes on the exclusive Windsor Hills resort. Yes, Windsor Hills is the very closest to Disney( and I think the 6 bed home is the closest home you can get to Disney World). Yes, Windsor Hills is the one with the amazing water park features and huge slide.

Why stay in an Orlando hotel when you could be here for a fraction of the cost?

So whatever you are looking for just click on the big envelope at the left of the page or visit one of my websites to see all the homes I have to offer. You are sure to find your dream home near to Disney World.

Windsor Palms and Windsor Hills Last Minute Discounts

August 16th, 2008 Alison Posted in kissimmee florida vacation home rental | No Comments »

We all like a bargain! Disney World sometimes has specials available but if you are looking for discounts with Disney World itself then you need to look elsewhere as the free dining special when you booked a Disney World hotel has now long since been booked up.

So why not consider a vacation home on a resort the absolute closet to Disney World that you can be.

Are you looking for discounts on a stay at one of the best Orlando vacation villa resorts? Well late August and September is a great time to pick up a bargain. People ask me all the time ‘what are the best times to visit Disney World’? Well the answer is when it is least crowded and the weather is still great.

When is this? From around the third week of August to the end of September. Just try and avoid Labor Day weekend if you can!

Disney World Specials

So to be honest it is a quiet time for vacation rentals in Orlando. Why do you think that Disney World offered the free dining special in September – they know it is a quiet time. But this is a great thing for those looking for an Orlando villa bargain. I have homes on Windsor Palms and Windsor Hills available at discount rates for September.

So if you are interested – what are you waiting for? You already know that you can save a lot of money by staying in an Orlando villa and Windsor Palms and Windsor Hills really are the best choices out there. These are the best resorts in Orlando just minutes from Disney World.

A Trustworthy Site To Rent Villas in Orlando

August 12th, 2008 Alison Posted in Florida Vacation Rentals, Orlando Theme Parks, Vacation Rental Websites, kissimmee florida vacation home rental, windsor hills | No Comments »

Looking for villas to rent in Orlando can get overwhelming. Of course you are looking for a trustworthy site to rent villas in Orlando but there are so many out there how do you know where to even start?

First decide on your ‘wish list’. What exactly do you need for your Orlando rental home? How many bedrooms, bathrooms, do you want a private south facing pool, Disney themed rooms, do you wanting a home on a resort the very closest to Disney World?

Orlando homes near Disney World fl

Then you have to decide if you book your Orlando villa directly with the owner, or book with a large rental agency. More and more people are deciding to book direct with the owner. This has a number of advantages. Firstly it saves you money – this can be a great deal of money. Secondly you know exactly which house you are going to be staying in. Thirdly, and this really depends upon the individual owner, you may get a much better and more personalized service from booking directly with an owner.

So how do you find a trustworthy site? Well of course I am going to send you to my sites here! You didn’t think I wouldn’t did you? I have homes on Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms, as well as the beautiful resort of Solana.

Why are they trustworthy sites? I hope that my guests speak for me on this one – you can see what they say about me and my selection of homes. They also keep coming back! This is the best way that I can tell that I am doing a good job on offering not only high quality homes, but also great customer service. I enjoy what I do and I really do want my guests to enjoy their time in my homes. So I will do my very best to match you to the home which will be perfect for you.

What else can I offer the guest looking for villas to rent in Orlando? Well everyone knows that Orlando is the theme park capital of the world! So my guests also get the added value of being able to ask EverythingMouse any question at all about Disney World and the other theme parks. My other not so secret identity is as Disney travel writer EverythingMouse. My online resources are free for everyone out there who wants to make their trip to Disney World very special ( and save a lot of money and time along the way). But my Orlando villa guests get my individual attention and can ask me as many things as they need to know about the Orlando theme parks, restaurants, things to do, ways to save money. So not only do you have access to some of the very best homes close to Disney World, you have access to EverythingMouse too!

Need another reason to book one of my Orlando villas close to Disney World?

Vacation Homes For Rent Near Disney World

August 8th, 2008 Alison Posted in Vacation Rental Websites, kissimmee florida vacation home rental, windsor hills | No Comments »

Can you really know how close your vacation rental home is to Disney World before you arrive?  I see so many Orlando vacation home owners being slightly ‘economical with the truth’ about how long it will take you to get to Disney World it makes me smile!

First let me say that most of the Orlando villas that I see are indeed within 15 to 30 minutes of Disney World. Some are closer than others.  Of course they are – they can’t all be the closest to the Mouse!

So if you are booking an Orlando holiday home which resorts are the closest.  Without a doubt Windsor Palms and Windsor Hills are closer than every other resort.  They are very prestigious resorts with excellent facilities.  If you are looking for the closest Orlando villas to Disney World then you cannot go wrong with Windsor Palms and Windsor Hills resorts.

But being the absolute closest to Disney World is not the priority for everyone.  If you are looking for something just 7 minutes further the consider Solana Resort which offers guests excellent resort facilities and a great location.  You will be able to drive from the Solana resort to any of the major theme parks including Disney World and Universal Studios in anywhere between 15 minutes to 30 minutes.  And the prices you pay for Solana are likely to be less than you would pay for either of the Windsor Palms or Windsor Hills resorts.  So if you just want to add a very short time to your driving time but save yourself a lot of money then don’t overlook this hidden gem.

Orlando Vacation Homes

July 26th, 2008 Alison Posted in Florida Vacation Rentals, Orlando Theme Parks, Vacation Rental Websites, kissimmee florida vacation home rental, windsor hills | No Comments »

So you have searched on the internet for your perfect vacation home close to Disney World. You have stared at the computer screen for hours to learn where the houses are, the prices, which vacation homes look as though they are right for your family. You are excited about your family vacation to Disney World.

You send out some emails to Orlando vacation home owners for houses on your short list. You wait. You really had one special home in mind that you liked the look of more than any other.  It was close to Disney World, had a great pool, a game room. Everything you wanted in an Orlando villa.

You wait. And you wait some more. A day passes and you don’t hear from the owner. You had your heart set on that home. You have taken the time to find it and you don’t really want to start your search again. Another day passes. Nothing.

You open your email one morning and there it is. An answer about your dream home. But the owner gives you a couple of ’standard’ sentences and refers you back to their website which you had already seen anyway. But they are too late. You have already booked another home.

So, I hear you ask what is my point? Vacation home owners are human. Even I move away from my computer screen sometimes!You are communicating with people on the internet. You have no idea who they really are because all they have is a website with some pictures of their home. You are trusting them with a big part of your vacation and you know nothing about them. And then they ignore you!

I am speaking from personal experience as I just spend many hours looking for a vacation home in California. What a very frustrating experience! Vacation home owners that don’t get back to you, send you one line answers, don’t answer your questions……… Now there were some who were polite and friendly. And these are the ones that I noticed.

There is no way I would rent a home from someone who does not take their customer service seriously at this stage. How would it be if there is a problem somewhere along the line if I don’t trust them right now? You can have the nicest house at a bargain price but if I don’t trust you I am not going to book!

And I hope that my guests feel the same. They book my Orlando homes because I have a great selection of villas which are of a very high standard.  But my customer service is second to none.  I often have had people say to me – you are the only one who has answered or tried to help me.

Want to know where the best viewing places for the Magic Kingdom fireworks are? The best restaurant where you can dine with a Disney Princess. Want to know if going to EPCOT next Wednesday is a good idea? These are all things you can ask me and I will answer. Promptly. So you can stay in a great house, and have everything you need for your Disney World vacation.

Find an Orlando vacation home owner that you do know something about.  You will be glad that you did

Last Minute Orlando Vacation Rentals

July 24th, 2008 Alison Posted in Vacation Rental Websites, kissimmee florida vacation home rental, windsor hills | No Comments »

It seems that everyone was looking for late availability vacation homes in Orlando.  Usually July is not that busy a month for vacation rental booking inquiries but this year I have been so busy. The only thing is that I just haven’t had anywhere to offer to the guests.  July was completely booked for all my Orlando holiday homes on Windsor Palms and Windsor Hills. So I began looking further afield with my many contacts to see if their homes were available. The answer was no. So it looks like July was a great month for vacation home owners but not good at all for those looking for a last minute bargain.

I know that many guests feel that if they wait until the last minute they will get an Orlando vacation home much cheaper. This may sometimes be true. If they are lucky with finding exactly what they want for the right dates. But you really are limiting your choices. Yes you can be lucky and get a bargain. Of course this can happen. Sometimes I get a late cancellation, or there are a few days between bookings which I really want to fill for a great price for the guest. But usually it just pays to book ahead as far as you can. You will simply have more choice of the more popular homes.  Remember, usually they are popular for a reason. They are the cream of the crop.

So if you decide on a last minute trip to Orlando get looking as quickly as you can for a vacation rental home. The more time you have, the better deal you are likely to get.

Holiday Homes Orlando

July 9th, 2008 Alison Posted in Florida Vacation Rentals, Orlando Theme Parks, Vacation Rental Websites, kissimmee florida vacation home rental, windsor hills | No Comments »

Just how do you choose a holiday home in Orlando? Need some help? There is so much choice – and once you start an internet search for an Orlando villa it can be time consuming and overwhelming. So how do you narrow down your search for your prefect Orlando holiday home?

I have owned vacation homes in Orlando for many years. I now have a number of holiday homes to offer and communicate every day with guests looking for the ideal vacation villa. Sometimes you need to see things from the other side just to appreciate how difficult the process is. It should be easy to find a home – there are a lot of Disney vacation homes out there. And that is just the problem. How do you know which Disney holiday home is going to suit your family?

This week I have been searching for a vacation home in another part of the US for my family. I admit it has been driving me crazy and at this point I almost want to give up! All I want to do is have one site with someone there to help just so I can ask the 4 or 5 questions I really need to know the answers to. I need to know exactly where the house is, what does it look like, how much is it, is it available and do I trust the person who I am renting from? The last question is probably the most difficult one – even for me and I have been a holiday home owner for so long I really know how to do this more than most.

So I started thinking again about what people really want when they are looking for a holiday home in Orlando. They want to know where it is. You need to be close to the Disney theme parks, Universal, SeaWorld. All the Orlando attractions.

You need to know if the house is good value for your family. So if you have a limited budget you don’t want to be told about ones you can’t afford. Or if you only want the best Orlando villas then you want to see the best.

You want someone who you can trust to help you choose. Of course we are all trying to persuade you that our homes are the best! But I can honestly say that if I do not have what you are looking for then I will tell you and try and point you in the right direction.

So if you are looking for the perfect Orlando holiday home for your next Disney World Orlando vacation then contact me and I will help you find your way through the maze! You may like to reserve one of my Windsor Palms, Windsor Hills or Solana resort homes. Or if they are not the right ones for you I can give you the benefit of my many years of experience and point you in the right direction.
