A HOME AWAY FROM HOME…AND THEN SOME! – The Butterfly Cove condo in Windsor Palms Resort was absolutely wonderful! It was our first Christmas away from home and staying at this gated resort allowed us to have a safe and memorable one. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed, including making a traditional Christmas dinner (ham, turkey and all the fixin’s). The location was perfect because it was close to everything — grocery stores, restaurants and various shops. Since we also had a list of excursions planned, we were able to do them all: Universal Studios, Gatorland, Airboat ride on Lake Toho, swimming with the manatees and dolphins at Merritt Island, seafood dinner at Grills (Port Canaveral), Go-Karting, helicopter ride and shopping at two major malls. At the end of each day, we came back to a clean, bright, tastefully decorated and most comfortable home. The washer and dryer was a bonus – next time I won’t bring as many clothes or towels. I really loved the fact that the condo had everything the website said it had. When we didn’t have to go anywhere, we hung out at the clubhouse and enjoyed the large heated pool, hot tub, and loungers; sipping on killer cocktails and loaded nachos masterfully concocted by Matt of the clubhouse’s Tiki bar. There were so many other things we didn’t have enough time for like play volleyball and tennis at the resort, karaoke night at the clubhouse and Disney attractions. I was glad I was able to find time to at least roam around and admire the beautiful landscaping, manicured lawns, and well-kept grounds. We hope to go back so whenever this may be, we hope the Cove or any of Anna and Richard’s other condos (Butterfly Palm and Silver Palm) in the resort will be available. Btw, I took pictures of the whole place so I can copy Anna’s excellent decorating skills. We hate to recommend this place lest it’s not available when we need it but it so deserves this review…and then some! Anna and Richard, A (DISNEY) WORLD OF THANKS for an AWESOME TIME in Kissimmee!!!

SIMPLY AWESOME – Great location, close to everything. Great price, very, very nice and well kept. Like we never left home. Not necessarily in that order. The only time we didn’t like the place is when we had to leave. Definitely would consider staying there again and recommend to others. Oh, and the owner is okay to deal with too. LOL. Thanks Anna and Rich for everything.

AWESOME RETURN VISIT!!! – My two sons and I stayed at Anna’s condo a few years ago and loved it so much, my youngest son and I came back.We stayed in the Butterfly Palm Condo on the main level and it was just perfect. We were within 15 minutes of Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and just a bit further to Universal. The condo had everything we needed – and my son loved the blender so we could have smoothies in the morning!!! We were so busy we didn’t take advantage of the movie theater but the pool was a perfect break in the 90+ weather and a welcome respite when the parks were too hot/crowded. Anna makes everything so easy and is a pleasure to work with!!! This vacation was absolutely perfect – my son and I could not have imagined a better time.Thanks Anna – I am definitely recommending you to my friends/family/colleagues and hope that I at least get a hat trick (third visit!!!) to your awesome vacation property.

WINDSOR PALM CONDO – Floor level – My family and I stayed at the Cove Condo for over a week and we loved it. It felt like a home away from home. Beautifully decorated, centrally located, and fully stocked- it helped make out vacation one of the best we have ever had. The gated community feel very safe. The condo’s amenities makes you feel like you are staying at a resort, not just a condo. We will certainly make reservations again, and encourage anyone looking to stay near Disney to do the same. It was a WONDERFUL time!

SUCH A WONDERFUL SURPRISE – My husband, daughter, granddaughter, and myself had the pleasure of staying at this property for almost a week. The place was beautiful and well appointed. Everything you would need to live like you were in your own home was provided. The location couldn’t have been better and Anna was a delight to work with. Our granddaughter loved the playground and swimming pool area and even though there is a movie theater on the property, we just didn’t have enough time to get to use that amenity. There is no doubt that we will be contacting Anna again when we head that way!

NICE, SIMPLE, GREAT DEAL – I entertained some visitors, and wanted to have a comfortable place with three bedrooms. This place was perfect, luxury and plenty of amenities on site. Getting in and out straightforward, parking, full kitchen, internet, everything works… it is reasonably close to everything, I was surprised that it only took us 1 h to Canaveral seashore for fishing. It is just under 2 hours from Ocala National Park. All the Orlando entertainment is within 10-20 min.
BEST CONDO EVER!!! – I have told sooo many people about your condo and our wonderful stay since we’ve been home! My husband and I and our children had the best possible vacation because of your place. It was so comforting to come back to after an exhausting (but fun) day at the parks. We truly felt at home there. We did not have any problems while staying there. No noise while we were there, it was perfectly quiet! We even took one day off from the park and stayed at the pool and just enjoyed the condo to rest. We sure couldn’t have done that in a hotel:) The owners are AWESOME to work with and our family will definitely stay here again!!

GREAT PLACE! – We had recently come back from our vacations, and we had such a great time at the condo! It was a perfect place for us, very comfortable, fully equipped, it has everything you need to feel in conform as at home. I will recommend it to everyone; of course I hope we can come back soon.
