Hello everyone!

Like so many of you have mentioned, ever since I rented a home/condo it is hard to go back to a normal hotel. I had my 1st experience renting from an owner during my trip to Orlando this past May and it was wonderful! The condo (at Windsor Hills) was immaculate and the home owner was really great to work with!

I have a trip coming up in January and am looking to stay at Windsor Hills again. There are so many amazing looking properties there! Many of the ones I have been interested in are already booked or a little out of my price range, but I have still found some great ones! My problem is I am a bit of a worry wart and really want to make sure I pick the best home for our trip. It's not every day you get to go to the Magical World of Orlando, so you always want it to be as perfect as possible (I am sure you know what I mean!) My main concern/worry is probabaly cleanliness.

Whenever booking a place to stay, be it a hotel or rental, I research and research and research. I always feel more comforted when I see a property with a lot of 5 star positive reviews and with a lot of more recent reviews. Someties I see a great property and for whatever reasons it hasn't had any reviews since 2007 or 2008 and that worries me.

I have a few finalists right now and there is one that is kind of in the lead, but I can't really find any recent reviews. Wondering if anyone has ever stayed at the Nemo's Nook Townhouse at Windsor Hills?

I wanted to post the links I found, but since I am a new member I can't right now. Nemo's Nook is featured on Florida Sun Vacation Homes, as well as HomeAway and the owner has a page as well. I found a listing for it on vrbo as well, but after it loads it errors and says the listing has been removed.

Sorry I can't direct link it!

I also like Martha's Townhouse, but it has no reviews at all. Martha's Townhouse can be found on vrbo as well as Magical Vacation Homes.

There is one house that has excellent reviews and the homeowners seem wonderful! Some of you have even mentioned it here but I guess I liked Nemo's a little more though because of the more modern decor, just worried about the lack of recent reviews.

If anyone has stayed at any of these places your input on them would be greatly appreciated!

Also, we are looking to stay at a house with a splash pool or normal pool and/or hot tub, which is the main reason we are not returning to the condo we stayed at last time. I am sad it doesn't have a pool or hottub because it is really perfect aside from that.

Thank you for reading!

I have to decide soon, just wanted to bump this to see if anyone could help before I make my final decision.

Thanks for looking!

I can't help you, because I am actually in the process myself of thinking about renting at Windosr Hills for the first time. But I do have a question.

I thought it was CHEAPER to stay here, that's why I started pricing it. I am looking at a condo for my family of 5, for $1075 for 7 nights.

That seems cheap and all, but once I add in the cost of food and park tickets, I am at the same price as a moderate hotel (ASSUMING I am getting free dining for my dates the last week of August.) And by staying on property, I won't need to rent a car.

Thoughts?

We save a ton staying off site by cooking simple meals and or carrying our lunch into the parks. We also love staying off site for the extra space.

OP, I have not stayed at those properties. We stayed at 5mins2disney the time we stayed in a townhouse and it was a great experience.

We stayed at Nemo's Nook last December and it was great. Very clean and almost exactly as pictured on VRBO and Florida Sun's site. We had a great stay and the management company was excellent and was at the townhouse within an hour after we called (we couldn't figure the tv out from the posted directions....come to find out it was a brand new tv and worked differently). I would stay there again with no hesitation. Hope that helps with your decision.:)
