Windsor Hills questions, and what condos are near Universal?

Hi

Looking at 2 bedroom condo rentals. Windsor Hills resort looks nice and its about 2 miles from disney.

Just wondering, what condo rentals are near Universal that are comparable? (more or less in price) Most of the things I plan on doing are in the universal area. I will have a car, will the commute from Windsor be okay to Universal?

Any feedback on Windsor Hills Resorts?

Thanks!!!

We stayed in WH in July in a villa.

The resort itself is very nice. The pool area is large and uncrowded. There is a fitness room, tennis court, cinema, games room, play areas for kids as well as a clubhouse & a small shop.

However it is closer to Disney and about a 25 minute drive from Universal.

It's an easy commute from Windsor Hills to Universal, a few miles east on I-4.

We do Universal too-Vista Cay you can get some good deals through owners-the only thing we didn't like about it (and it may not matter to other people), is that there is no restaurnt or bar area on sight as of yet-

We stayed in a three bedroom condo in Windsor Hills (we're also from WA state) in Jan '08 and it was great. We went thru Florida Sun Vacation Homes, and got a super price of a little over $800 for 8 nights. The condo was clean, well maintained and quiet (although since it was after the holidays that's not surprising). We were too busy going to the parks and didn't take advantage of the pool, but it looked very nice. The resort is a mile or so off hwy 192, where there are restaraunts, grocery stores, etc. It was a wonderful location - close enough to the parks (Disney, Universal and Sea World), but far enough away from the main roads to avoid the noise. The company we made the reservation through was just fine. Very clear directions to the condo from the airport, and since we'd registered by email, they sent us our access code by email and we were able to get right in. It was nice having a kitchen for breakfast and making sack lunches, and late evening snacks. Also washer and dryer in the unit so we came home w/ clean clothes.

Stayed at both Vista Cay and WH and imo WH is by far the nicer resort. Bit further from Universal but only a 25 mins drive.
