Windsor Hills boasts that it’s the closest resort to Walt Disney World, outside the Disney family of resorts. This hotel is great for any large family reunions, as you can book six-room homes that sleep 12 people. Select properties have kids’ rooms decorated in Disney themes. Kids will want to leave Disney to get back to the hotel pool, which has a huge waterslide. A resort recreation area has lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball, a putting green and a children’s playground. Children will enjoy climbing around in the castle-themed jungle gym and fighting off dragons.

Rented a town house (Rs2520) via the website of the Windsor Hill community where only town houses and apartments could be rented.
Full Payment needed to be done 60 days in advance.
Other websites are available to rent (town) house, apartment and luxury villa’s.
Needed to pickup key at their office o US192, but because of hurricane protocol the office was closed when we arrived. Check in documents and electronic key were left behind in the mail box. Drove to the resort and checkin at the guard was smooth. The house was as advertised, clean and functional, although furniture a bit dated. TV in every bedroom and the living room, but had to figure out how the TV channels worked. Garbage was picked up daily.
Resort pool and slides were much better than most of the hotels have. Hot tub was ok.
neighborhood was quit, a wall mart was a mile further and lot’s of restaurants and shops on the nearby US192 (Irwin Bronson Highway). If you are with a large group and want to pay less than a hotel and don’t mind making breakfast yourself and keeping the house clean your self, and have a car a townhouse (max 8) or condo at this resort is worth considering.
There are also houses for rent, but not via the website I used.
Beautiful resort. Fantastic pool area however, although there are signs requesting visitors not to save beach chairs, they do. Other than that great spot, close to the 192 where all the shops, grocery stores etc are. Grounds well kept, basketball court, tennis court, small 8 or 9 hole golf practise area, and lots of walking (paved) trails. Really nice.
