Staying at Windsor Hills Condo (Off Property)

My family and I decided to save our DVC points for our stay in June and try out a Condo in Windsor Hills Community only two miles from WDW property.

I went on and reviewed a few of the resorts and then I came upon the Condo known as Key Largo at the Windsor Hills resort. I contacted the owner Rob and worked on a price. It was very easy, I put a deposit down and paid with my paypal account.

The owner sent me the necessary papers and I signed, scanned and emailed them back to him. At that point he sent me the rest of the information on how to proceed and what to take to the gate to gain entry in the community.

I was very pleased with the Condo. I have stayed at many places on and off site. The Condo was very cozy and well appointed. It has a keyless entry. The community of Windsor Hills is very nice. Some of the amenities it has are:

  • Giant community heated pool.
  • Monthly parties and events!
  • Spiral water slide, fountains, and family sized hot tub!
  • Amazing clubhouse with billiard room, video arcade, movie theater and more!
  • Free Wi-Fi at Clubhouse • Business Center at the Windsor Hills Clubhouse.
  • Windsor Hills Sundry Shop with all your basic needs!
  • Lighted tennis, basketball and sand volleyball court.
  • Professional putting green to practice your game!
  • Picnic & Barbeque area.
  • Unique castle themed playground.
  • Guest Services to assist with all local information.
  • State of the Art Fitness center.
  • 24 hour gated security.
  • Playgrounds throughout the property.
  • Shuttle bus service to all the parks and shops (small charge).
  • RV and boat parking available.

  • I did not use the amenities because we were at the parks most of the days until the pool closed. I did find out that the guest choose the films that play at their movie theater that plays a few times a day. On our last day I did use the computer to print our boarding passes. The first 10 minutes are free and .75 each page print.

     I used the pin code on the keypad to enter the Condo. The Condo itself was very nice, very comfortable and homey. The place has so much room. The beds were very soft and plush and the Master Bedroom has a king size bed; however, its very high off the ground which made it a bit difficult for me to get on being that I am only 5'2 but it was very well worth it. The girls room was cozy with two beds and a t.v. and their own bathroom, which was very nice because two teenage girls can take a long time getting ready in the morning.

    I loved the use of the full kitchen for coffee in the morning and ice tea in the evening. If I was staying longer I would love the use of the kitchen for full meals but because we were at the parks all day we really didn't get a chance to use it.

    There is a washer and dryer and we did use that on our last night there. I love to do a load of laundry before we leave so we don't come home with a bunch of dirty clothes.

    The condo also has an xbox if your family likes to play video games.

    I would highly recommend this beautiful Condo to any family that want a nice roomy place to stay off property. Its cheaper than a hotel and you get a full living area.

    I hope you enjoyed my review on this Condo. Please check it out if you can and if there are no dates open for your vacation than check out and look at the other Condo's in the community.
