Family dinners at the villa!
This home was perfect for us all. Very clean, lots of room for both families and lots to keep everyone busy. We did eat out some, but we really enjoyed having dinners together at the house. So happy we connected! Hopefully we will be back some day.

Fun family times!
The house was so nice and a great fit for our two families. We wish the weather had allowed us to enjoy the pool more, but there was a cold snap for part of our stay. We did use it after the cold front had passed. The games room was a huge hit – everyone had something to play and we had some great family games nights. The Christmas tree was a nice touch at this time of the year! We will all remember this week as an amazing trip. Thanks for helping us make memories!

Family Christmas trip!
This was our first time at Blue Star Villa. We loved all the amenities. It was perfect for our party of 6. Thank you for thinking of every detail, sharing your lovely villa with us and providing excellent directions and instructions. We loved the central location. We took advantage of the pool every night for relaxing and the games room was great for the kids. Everything was perfect!

Our 4th stay at Blue Star Villa!
This is our 4th stay at this wonderful house. We love hanging by the pool and hot tub. We wished we could stay a few extra days. Perfect house for 2 families and grandparents. We loved all the DVDs and the toys and how much it feel like home. We will be back again. Thank you!
A. C. December 2017 (CAN)
Traveling as a family!
The pool and hot tub at the house were the best! We used everything! The house was great, clean and comfortable. It was so nice to have all those beach towels and pool toys already there. The DVDs were great for the kids. We love the house and would highly recommend it. Thank you, Donna!

Cocktails together by the pool!
This was a family vacation to relax and for our families to reconnect. We had dinner every night and cocktails by the pool. We did Universal, but mostly just spent time together. We loved the pool table tournaments. The kids would wake up and play pool, first thing. We had a wonderful time and are hoping to make this an annual event. We are also thinking about purchasing a pool table for our home. Thanks so much for the great hospitality!
M. L. August 2017 (CAN)
So clean and nice!
This was the cleanest and best equipped place we have ever rented! The owners thought of everything. We were able to make breakfast before we left for the parks and pack snacks, so we saved a lot of money to spend on other things! The Princess dresses and boys’ costumes were fabulous. We had quite the fashion show! Will be back again as soon as we can manage it. Wonderful memories made here!
M. M. July 2017 (UK)
Lots of towels!
Our best memories are of your beautiful home. We really appreciated the pool and all of the towels!!! The weather was perfect and we took advantage of it. Loved it there.
R. S. July 2017 (USA)
Rain never stopped our fun!
It was hot and a bit rainy during our stay, but that never stopped us. We threw on some ponchos and rode the rides all day. Plus, the lines were super short when everyone left! Loved swimming in the pool at the villa after long days at the parks, and we used the spa every day. We had a great time. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.
J. A. June 2017 (USA)
The house is beautiful, and we all loved our time there. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We hope to return to this home again one day. Beautiful!

K. F. April 2017 (UK)
Enjoyed it all!
Special times were sitting on the lanai at night and enjoying the view of the fireworks. The kids loved the pool every night after long days in the parks. This home had all the necessities – nice bedrooms and ensuites, games room, nice big TV and good wifi. The pool and hot tub were lovely feature enjoyed by all. We made some great memories there.
L. P. March 2017 (CAN)

Christmas at Disneyworld!

Everything was awesome!
The kids and I went in the pool every day and the spa was wonderful! My wife and I loved everything about the house and took pictures for design ideas at home. Everything was so warm and inviting. Truly a home away from home. Thank you for letting us enjoy it. We had so much fun here and made so many memories.
P.B. June 2016 (USA)

D.D. June 2016 (U.K.)
Too many special moments to remember!
Thanks so much, Donna, for all your help. We loved the villa and the whole family loved the pool and games room! We never used the community pool as we were so happy at the villa. Thanks for the tips about the stroller in the parks. A real home away from home. Would definitely recommend it to our friends.
G.B. April 2016 (U.K)
Wonderful time together!

C.P. January 2016 (Argentina)

T.B. October 2015 (Iceland)
This house was awesome. Our kids were equally as excited and have enjoyed their time here with us. We will stay here again when we come back for Universal and Legoland!! Thank you for opening your home to us – it’s definitely been a pleasant addition to our family’s memories!

Much thanks to the Albert family. Your home is beautiful and we appreciate the chance to share its beauty. It checked off all the boxes and we look forward to returning. Thanks a million.
T.W. July 2015 (USA)
Loved the night swimming for the kids!
Villa is everything it said it was online. Beautiful house, very comfortable and clean. Pool and hot tub were amazing. Could not have asked for anything more. Games room was great for the kids, as were all the water toys provided. Grounds and pool at Windsor Hills were great.
Thank you, Donna, for opening your home to us. We truly felt like we were at home. We would definitely come back and will recommend Blue Star Villa to our friends.
J.V. June/July 2015 (Canada)
Discovery Cove was the best (by far) place we’ve ever been!
We went to Cocoa Beach, Legoland, Discovery Cove (highly recommend), Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom (loved the safari), Hollywood Studios, Seaworld and shopping. Enjoyed swimming with the dolphins and spending time with our families.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We enjoyed it very much : ) This home absolutely felt like home away from home.
L.M. June 2015 (USA)
We met Chip ‘N Dale!!!
Too many favorite moments to mention, but the children meeting their favorite characters, Chip ‘N Dale was great. We also loved the campfire at Fort Wilderness. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home, it is just perfect, so well equipped, so perfectly located. We will recommend it to our friends.
S.H. April/May 2015 (U.K.)
Grandchildren loved it!
We visited all of the parks. Our grandchildren are finally old enough to appreciate it all. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in your wonderful home! It is ideally located for all the parks. We have had a great time and hope to be back one day. Best wishes.
K.F. April 2015 (U.K.)
Everything at the villa and Windsor Hills Estates was fantastic. My grandson said it best… he said, “I wish we could hook up 3 big trucks to this place and haul it back to Maine!”
Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home. We wish you the best! Hopefully we will be back : )
K. M. March 2015 (USA)
Escaping the Canadian Winter!
On this family trip, we visited Magic Kingdom, Kennedy Space Center, Universal Studios and Epcot. Your home was very wonderful. The pool was really warm. Thank you for opening up your home to us.
A.R. February 2015 (Canada)
Relaxation and Escape!
We visited Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney and Animal Kingdom. We actually did less than planned due to being so content, relaxing and swimming here!!!
Great memories of my boys swimming, laughing and playing here, the fireworks at Magic Kingdom, my 4-year-old riding the Barnstormer two times in a row with me!
Thank you so much for sharing your home – perfect! We all enjoyed ourselves and relaxed, which is hard to do, but your villa made it so easy! All amenities were spot-on and the kids’ toys were great. My kids loved all the costumes – wore them all and became every princess they could be – thank you! We will be back!
T. J. February 2015 (USA)
Special thanks to the Windsor Hills employees for being so nice!
We did it all! All Disney parks, LBV Outlets, Legoland, Florida Mall, Mall of Millenia, Orlando Premium Outlets, even a Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game. We rode all the roller coasters in the parks. We also loved the quiet nights in the pool and hot tub.
From the excellent weather to the friendly people, we had a BLAST! I think we will need a vacation when we get home! Special thanks to Donna for a wonderful house. It truly could not be any more comfortable. We will be back in 2016!!!!
K. B. January 2015 (Canada)
Warmest January vacation in a long time!
We did Legoland, 2 days at Epcot, Hollywood Studios. Loved the miniatures at Legoland and Beauty and the Beast at Hollywood Studios, also Fantasmic! We really appreciated all of the “kid” items in the villa/ The villa was very clean and the kitchen was stocked very well. Thank you!
J. C. January 2015 (USA)
Can’t wait to come back!
We loved all Walt DisneyWorld theme parks and Gatorland and would recommend Gatorland Night Shine. Special highlights were Toy Story Mania, Jungle Safari and It’s Tough to be a Bug. The villa was amazing and was perfect for our Thanksgiving vacation. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you!!!
A.W. November 2014 (USA)
Second stay at this villa!

We met friends from last year also. Thank you so much. We had a great Halloween vacation.
See you next year for Christmas!!! XXX
H.C. October 2014 (U.K.)
Our first, but not our last, family vacation!
The weather was awesome – 80’s/high 70’s. We park hopped all of the parks. Loved the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 😉 Also loved Monsters Inc., Donald and The Incredibles. We also loved the Sci-Fi Dinner at Epcot.
More special moments were the parade and fireworks in Magic Kingdom, Soarin’, and lots of swimming! Beautiful villa! Thank you… this is our first (but not our last) family vacation 😉
E. P. October 2014 (USA)
Visited Legoland, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Downtown Disney and shopping at the Mall and outlets. Our favorite moments were watching our daughters in the pool and in the Disney parks.
We have stayed in Windsor Hills before and we absolutely love the beautiful neighborhood and closeness to everything. This year we travelled with a smaller crew and this home was absolutely perfect. The home had everything we could ask for and more.
The homeowners were so friendly to work with us arranging our stay. We would recommend this beautiful home to our family and friends.
T.S. September 2014 (Canada)
Everything was amazing!
We went to all theme parks and did a lot of shopping. Could recommend Olive Garden, Tony Romas, Bahama Breeze restaurants. Also recommend to see Blue Man Group [Universal], the parade at Disney and Downtown Disney.
We arrived for a 2 week vacation. Villa is beautifyul and had everything we needed – clean, comfortable, the pool and hot tub are lovely; could not have asked for anything more. We will definitely come back to stay at this villa again. Thank you. XXX
D.A. September 2014 (U.K.)
Family Holiday to Florida!
Visited all the Disney Parks, Seaworld, Universal and the Kennedy Space Center – and Publix!!! My younger son loved the shop! [at Publix]. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Loved IHOP for their sourdough toast, good rollercoasters and Harry Potter at Universal.
Brilliant house here! The house was everything that you could need, especially the pool and games room.
M.W. August 2014 (U.K.)
Beautiful villa, great location
The listing description was very accurate, spacious, well decorated, good quality furniture, great location. Windsor Hills is a lovely development, very well placed for all amenities. The property was in excellent order, very well maintained. The owner dealt with myself in a very professional manner, every request for information was dealt with efficiently. I would definitely recommend the property to a friend or relative. We visited the four Disney Parks and typhoon lagoon together with Sea world. We ate out several times on International Drive, at the parks and at celebration.
I. R. Aug 2014 (U.K.)
Great pool and hot tub. House was gorgeous, we loved it. Made our stay special.
L. C. June 2014 (USA)
Best equipped villa!!
We have stayed in Windsor Hills on 3 occasions but this was by far the nicest and best equipped villa. Considering that there were 4 generations of family ranging from 10 months to mid 70’s, there was absolutely nothing we needed extra. We enjoyed every minute. Super impressed by amount of baby gear available for use. Our 10-month old was able to be as comfortable as we were. We will definitely recommend to family and friends. Thank you for making this trip an even more memorable one by offering us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful vacation home this year. Can’t wait to come back. A big thank you from all of us!
D.E. May 2014 (Canada)
Wonderful to return to this home
This home made for wonderful memories and the highlight of our trip. What a wonderful days’ ending to come to this beautiful house and BBQ. We got so much use out of the pool area that we didn’t want to leave, even to go to the parks. We sing the praises of this home and location and will be sure to recommend to all our friends and family. Between the pool and the game room, why spend your money at the parks? All you could ask for is right here! Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home. It provided us with so much comfort and fun and we will be CERTAIN to be back. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The Best Home we have stayed in so far at Windsor Hills!
This is the 4th location we have stayed in at Windsor Hills and this one was probably the nicest so far. Kitchen was pretty well equipped and the playroom/garage was super for kids of all ages. Pool and hot tub were excellent and pretty clean (esp compared to neighbors). House was clean and ready when we arrived. We would love to come back to this home. We were only a family of four so one of the bedrooms never even got used but the extra space and room were great.
(Note – We have stayed in 6 bedroom, 5 bedroom, and the townhouses. We really never use the community pool or facilities as everything we need is at the house. Gate security and process was better than it ever has been before.) Unless you have some unrealistic expectation, you can’t go wrong with this home. Good communication from the owner and an overall top notch experience. Can’t wait to go back…. Great for kids.
B.O. April 2014 (USA)
So much to do!
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely home this week! We absolutely loved it here. The pool and deck are fantastic! And thank you for all your help before arriving here. We hope to return again one day. Things we did: Kennedy Space Center, Disneyworld parks, loads of shopping!!! – so much cheaper here than in Denmark! Watched an NBA match at Amway Center – fantastic experience.
K.O. April 2014 (Denmark)
Perfect family vacation!!
What a beautiful home. Perfect for our family vacation. From the pool table to the swimming pool, from the wonderful kitchen to the comfy bedrooms… we loved it all!
C.C. March 2014 (USA)
A place to stay for children and adults alike!
Thanks so much for preparing your house so beautifully to welcome us. It was definitely a lovely stay in a lovely place with loved ones. We thought the house was simply perfect, refined and carefully thought out for children and adults. We even bought the same linens you use because we liked so much sleeping in those sheets. Next time we come to Orlando, which we hope is soon, we will definitely look for you, to be your guests again. We will also recommend your house for friends as well. Thank you again so much, Donna. All our family spent really happy and unforgettable days here.
F.V. January 2014 (Brazil)
Felt so safe and comfortable
We, as a family, would like to thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We have had an amazing time and have felt so safe and comfortable. We played volleyball in the pool and enjoyed the lovely surroundings. Beautiful weather, nice and hot, sunshine every day. This was the best holiday we have ever had and one of the things that has made it the best was the villa. We can’t thank you enough and look forward to returning soon!!! We didn’t want to go home. Absolute bliss!!
H. C. October 2013 (UK)
17 Day stay!
Thanks for everything!!! The kids loved the activity room, especially the air hockey and pool table. Had a great time!!! We stayed 17 days, so we were able to do a lot. Universal Studios is a must. We visited Magic Kingdom and also went to Discovery Cove and swam with the dolphins, Sea World, Wet ‘N Wild, Busch Gardens, and Aquatica with the beach and water activities. Lots of shopping at the malls and outlet stores too. Thanks for letting us stay at your beautiful home!!!
M. E. September 2013 (Norway)
Great swimming pool!
What a perfect villa! Especially all the space and the great swimming pool. We went to Universal Studios, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, all four Disney parks, and lots of the local restaurants. Thanks for everything!
N.G. August 2013 (UK)
Second trip to Orlando. It’s still great. Thanks for letting us rent your beautiful villa, Donna 🙂
P. J. June 2013 (Norway)
Pleased with the layout of the house!
Everything about our Blue Star Villa stay was excellent. Donna was a joy to deal with both before and after our stay. The house is beautiful, everything brand new and great quality. The pictures and descriptions on the website are very accurate and we were pleased with the layout of the house, as well as the many amenities, like the game room and the pool. We had a lot of rain during our stay, so next time we would definitely opt to include the pool heat b/c the rain had made the water a little cold. We still took a dip to cool off though and it was refreshing. We spent our entire week at the Disney parks, so the location of the villa to the parks was perfect! It really was only a few miles.
Our trip included 4 adults and one child and there was more than enough room for all of us to live comfortably for 5 days. You could certainly bring more people than that. It was also nice that everything was on one floor b/c after walking the parks for so many hours, who wants to come home and climb up and down stairs? I would definitely recommend the Blue Star Villa for any family looking for all the comforts of home during their next trip to Florida. We hope to make our trip an annual one and would love to stay here again!
C. R. May 2013 (USA)
Games, toys and dress up clothes were a hit!
We truly enjoyed coming home to the villa every day – such a beautiful house and pool. Our children loved playing with the games and toys, and the dress-up clothes were a hit!
Florida has so much to offer. It was fun to explore and the weather was what we needed after our long winter back home! Truly a memorable vacation for all of us. Thanks Donna and Larry for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was a pleasure and we look forward to coming back – hopefully in the near future!!
Favorite moments: watching our girls’ faces light up when meeting the Disney Princesses. We had so much fun exploring the parks together, and with Nonny and Poppy too!
N. K. May 2013 (Canada)
Memorable and relaxing vacation!
We had a great time staying here! The kids loved the game room – my son had fun with the video games and pool and my daughter spent time playing with the toys, books and dresses. The toys at the pool were great too, as they spent hours playing ball in the pool.
The decor was lovely and we had everything we needed. We also enjoyed the pool at the resort. It was good for the kids – they had fun on the slide. Thanks for thinking of everything and making this a memorable and relaxing vacation!
G.S. April 2013 (Canada)
Wonderful retreat for the entire family
Blue Star Villa was a wonderful retreat for the entire family. We love the Orlando area and all it has to offer. In the past, we have stayed on Disney property at the 5 star Grand Floridian. Though it is a beautiful hotel, the rooms are very small and quite pricey. Renting in Windsor Hills was a pleasant change. We absolutely loved the home!! It was so spacious, very clean, and well equipped with everything we needed. From the warm decor to the heated pool and beautiful game room, the attention to detail was top notch. The kids loved having a pool and hot tub right at the house. Each night, they couldn’t wait to get home to take a dip. We enjoyed the community pool as well, and found the store to be reasonably priced for a quick lunch poolside.
The location of this villa was perfect, less than a 10 minute drive to Disney Parks and Downtown Disney and less than a 20 minute drive to Universal. We also visited Gatorland, which the kids absolutely loved. The villa is within ten minutes of restaurants, shopping and grocery stores, perfect for us, since we chose to cook at home a few nights we were there. I can’t say enough about the Windsor Hills Community, and specifically, Blue Star Villa. We were very impressed with all of the amenities as well as the great customer service. We are looking forward to going back in the near future!!
T.H. April 2013 (USA)
House looked like a model home
What can I say… perfect in every way. Donna, the owner, really out did herself. We have 3 little girls and they asked us if we could move into this home forever. The girls loved the princess dresses, wands and shoes for them to play with, as well as the toy area full of toys. All bedrooms were decorated really well. The house looked like a model, everything in it was new. No wear on anything. The game room was a blast. The kitchen was a great place for us to all hang out. It was our 4th location in Windsor Hills, and this was the best place we have ever rented. We will definitely be back.
M.W. March 2013 (USA)
Didn’t want to leave!
This has been the best vacation my husband and I have ever been on. We wanted to see Florida for a long time, and just as I was afraid of – I didn’t want to leave…
The villa is a perfect spot for a family! I am so pleased with the villa, its safety features, beauty, how well it is equipped for everyone, how lovely, comfortable and homey it is. we have enjoyed each room, all the fun and games, the beautiful heated pool and the hot tub! My 1-year-old learned to swim there!
Lastly, thanks so much to Donna for being so friendly and helpful. Thank you for being attentive and approachable! We will be booking with you again soon for next year. Loved every minute!

Spacious enough for two families!
For our first stay in Windsor Hills and in Florida, we were thrilled with this find! Blue Star Villa is beautifully kept, gorgeously decorated, and was spacious enough for our two visiting families to enjoy for many days. From the granite countertops to the leather couch sets, game and toy room, and big comfy beds, this villa truly impressed us and we will definitely recommend it to our friends. All kinds of amenities – even better than a home away from home!
