Robert Gray
Just back from a great stay at this fantastic condo! Everything was as described and fully working, very nicely decorated and a great location, ground floor and near the lovely Windsor Hills pool. Thanks so much, will definitely be looking to stay here again!

Andre Silva
We stayed at this Condo in May 2012. Great location, close to Disney, other themes parks and the main road full of restaurants. Quite close to the pool, clubhouse and the condo grocery store. The condo is large, well furnished, clean and comfortable. Would stay here again.

Shelley Nichols Berrigan
We stayed at this condo in October 2011 and the location to Disney was about 5 minutes away. You are really close to the clubhouse/pool. It was clean and comfortable. Close to grocery stores and the outlet mall. Would stay here again.

My family and I recently stayed at Magical Times and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The condo was immaculate and welcoming. The staff at Windsor Hills was more than accommodating (especially the pool guy who played catch with the kids at the pool). The gentlemen at the front gate were extremely helpful and courteous. It’s a wonderful place to stay if you’re visiting Disney (literally 10 mins away) in Florida or if you just want a relaxing quiet vacation! We’re definitely going back next year!!! Thanks again Gabriela for sharing your home with us. Lisa Basile-Tracey
