SwanLake is a lovely, nicely-decorated, sparkling clean home in a very nice community. I would definitely recommend it and stay there again. We stayed for 5 days in April 2009.
This villa is one of the smaller ones on the street, but it is priced right and perfect for us (a couple with 4 kids, aged 10-15). The screened pool area is sufficiently private and not overly shady or sunny. The pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained. In fact, everything was in good working order -- the kitchen, the bathrooms, the televisions, the laundry, etc. During our stay, the weather was too nice for us to use the pool table, which was in a windowless garage alongside the washer and dryer.
The kids enjoyed the community center, which would have been too far to walk for littler ones, but no problem for ours. They used the theater to watch a movie of their choice. The community pool is especially nice for the toddler set, as is a playground that is a short walk from this villa.
The villa is an easy highway drive to Disney, SeaWorld and Universal, and there are plenty of restaurants nearby.
I can only think of one negative in our experience. First, when we arrived the pool was too cold (62 degrees, even though we paid for heat). VillaDirect was quite helpful, perhaps too helpful, as the next day the pool temp reached a scorching hot 101 degrees, and the pool temp continued to fluctuate wildly throughout our stay even though the weather was a steady 80 degrees.
Lastly, another unfortunate circumstance is the crumbling Florida real estate market. New construction has halted and many houses in this community appeared abandoned or foreclosed. It always felt safe and the community itself is still well-maintained, but when we were there a large number of homes were being sold or auctioned. Read more
We are delighted to read that the home was such a success for you on your visit and that the location made it easy for you to get in to Disney and the theme parks nearby. We apologize we could not help with the pool heat and you are definitely right about Florida's housing market demise. Florida has one of the highest foreclosure rates so thats a poblem we encounter with numerous properties surrounding our vacation homes. We hope that you will be visiting the Disney area soon and book your next stay through VillaDirect again.
Well appointed & close to Disney

Great Villa in a secure location with on-site facilities & close to Disney,what more can you ask for.Nice en-suite bedrooms large Kitchen & lounge and a very nice patio area with swimming pool & jacuzzi.
Garage has been turned into "games room" but it was way too hot in there for me & I wish the pool heating was not so expensive as the pool was really cold when we were there in October,but was a refreshing way of "chillin out" after toiling around Epcot ect.
All in all a superb way to stay in Florida - highly recommend - no more Hotels for Me !

Dear Mike and family
Thanks for your review of "SwanLake Villa" at Windsor Hills resort.
It was interesting to read your feedback on the games room that was too hot and the pool that was too cold for you. Can we suggest that, next time you book you ask the reservations agent for one of the homes with including pool heat that also has an air conditioned games room? We have got a few with both, and these may be the perfect solution for your next visit. We hope that you're planning your next stay with us soon and look forward to welcoming you on your return.

We have stayed in this well equiped, very comfortable villa previously as it is central to Disney and much more. Having use of free long distance/international telephone calls is a huge bonus! The free wi fi also helps the teenagers to keep in touch with their friends through their laptops. The pool, games room/tvs and on site facilities are all good when a break from the parks is needed. We always recommend Swan Lake Villa to our friends and work colleagues. Read more
