Welcome to Parkhopper Grandview, Parkhopper Properties' newly refurbished 3BR-2 BA 1246 sq. ft. luxury condo in Windsor Hills, in Kissimmee, Florida, just 2 miles from the main entrance to Walt Disney World. Grandview features comfortable living areas for up to a family of 8 including a young princess's dream room plus a brightly colored room with a Mickey theme. It is a fourth floor, penthouse level condo in the building next to the pool and the clubhouse, which is the most desirable location in Windsor Hills. The pool and clubhouse area are only a few steps away from our building. Parkhopper Grandview is located on the corner of the top floor of the building that overlooks the pool. It features what is probably the best view in Windsor Hills!
Windsor Hills is a gated community with a double Olympic-sized heated pool which features a two-story spiral water slide, children’s water play area with dancing waters fountains, and a secluded hot tub area. There are lighted tennis, basketball and volleyball courts as well as a fully equipped fitness center, a HD 42-seat theater with free guest-selected movies, outdoor grills, putting green, and two children’s playgrounds. Windsor Hills Resort is one of the closest short term rental properties to the Disney main entrance. Two right turns and two miles after exiting Windsor Hills and guests are driving under the “Welcome to Walt Disney World” sign. Driving time to the various Disney parks varies from about 7-12 minutes from Windsor Hills, depending on the park being visited, the time of day and traffic.
Grandview has been completely refurbished to open in late May 2017 with new furnishings, electronics and bedding. There are porcelain tile floors throughout main living living area of the unit and both baths, with recently replaced carpeting in all three bedrooms. The furniture in this unit has been fitted with glass tops, so no worries about damaging furniture and table tops.
The living room features a new 55' HD TV with a blu-ray player and plenty of seating with a large comfortable sofa and love seat with oversized ottoman. There is also a 42"HD TV in the Master BR and and a 24 inch TV in the Princess Room. All window treatments are new, and the living room, master bedroom and Mickey Room feature new ceiling fans. The Princess Room does not have a ceiling fan due to the chandelier, but a regal, large white fan on a stand is provided if Her Majesty prefers a gentle breeze. There are also quality new pillow top mattresses on all beds in the unit. In addition to cable TV with multiple HD channels, a secure high speed wi-fi connection, and phone with free long distance calls to the US, Canada and Mexico are provided.
The master BR features a king bed with dual night stands an lamps and a large dresser with lots of storage for clothing and personal items. A private en-suite bath with a newly renovated spa-type shower is accessed through the master bedroom. There is also a magnificent view of the pool, the lake, and the surrounding area from the window in the master bedroom. Plenty of fluffy bath linens are also furnished .
The Princess room features a queen bed with a new pillowtop mattress that should be suitable for even the most delicate of princesses. (Just in case YOUR princess is extra delicate, no peas are allowed!) A crown canopy above the headboard with glittered white sheers retracted to the sides of the bed add to the regall effect. The other furnishings include the 24" chandelier and a gold and white dresser and nightstand which are fitting for royalty. Her Majesty also has a glorious and "Grand View" of her kingdom from her bedroom window where she may choose to survey her kingdom with views of the pool, the lake and beyond. If Her Majesty is an early riser, she may also be entertained by the many hot air balloons that generally appear in the sky early each morning. She may also view her subjects as they enjoy the pool or she may choose to grace them with her presence and join them in frolicking in the pool if that is her pleasure.
For the less royally inclined, the Mickey room has a full and a twin beds, also with new pillow top mattresses. The Mickey room also features a new ceiling fan, blackout curtains for naptime and brightly colored icicle lights that surround the ceiling of the entire room. These lights are beautifully reflected in the angles of the 5 mirrored stars on the walls of the Mickey Room, but unfortunately this effect does not show up well in the photo. However, the colored icicle lights create a magical effect when the overhead lighting is turned off and the blackout draperies are used. A chest of drawers is in one end of the closet to provide extra storage for clothing and personal items. The Princess room and the Mickey room share a hallway bath that is also accessible from the Living Room area. A full tub/shower combination and a hand-held shower accessory make bathing younger guests an easier task in this bath.
Grandview will sleep up to 7 guests with a maximum of 8 if the Pack ‘n Play is used. A Pack 'n Play (sheets included), stroller and high chair are furnished for our younger guests at no extra charge. We also furnish beach towels for use at the pool and a hair dryer in each bath. The bed configuration of king, queen, full and twin allows for 7 guests with possibly a maximum of 8 if one guest is a baby or a toddler. Eight is the maximum number of guests allowed in a 3 BR condo due to local fire codes.
The Grandview balcony features an amazing of the pool, the lake, and the surrounding area. This view is exquisite in the early morning prior to the pool opening when multiple hot air balloons can usually be seen rising in the distance. There is not a prettier place in Windsor Hills to enjoy a quiet moment with a cup of coffee or tea than the balcony of Grandview. In the evenings after the pool closes at 10 pm, the pool lights remain on for an extra hour or so, and this is also a wonderful time to enjoy a quiet nightcap on the Grandview balcony. There is a small wicker and glass table on the balcony with two large comfortable wicker chairs and also additional seating for two more, making a total of seating for 4 on the balcony.
The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator/freezer, electric range and oven, microwave, and dishwasher. Small appliances include coffee maker, toaster, and blender.

Additionally, Grandview has a large capacity washer and dryer in the unit available for guest use.
Grandview is in condo building #8 which is closest to the pool and the clubhouse/movie theater/fitness center area. Building #8 is considered to be the most desirable condo building location in Windsor Hills. While Grandview is only a few steps away from these facilities, it also has the one of the most desirable views in all of Windsor Hills Resort. The map in our photos section will show the exact location of Grandview in relation to the rest of Windsor Hills.
