The Climate at Windsor at Westside

The climate of the Sunshine state is influenced by the fact that all parts of the state are in close proximity to the ocean. Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state, is also a pivot point for the climate of Florida. Above the lake, which is where Windsor at Westside is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while the areas below the lake, to the south, experience a true tropical climate.

When staying in a vacation rental in Windsor at Westside,Kissimmee, then you should plan for weather ranging from warm and pleasant from October through until May, and extremely hot between June and September. Florida sees a lot of sunshine throughout the year and the temperatures rarely fall near or below freezing (0°C / 32F).

Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be hot and humid most days, with temperatures in the peak of summer reaching into the mid 90s F.

The rainy season arrives in May and runs on through until October. So, when leaving for the parks, you'll want to pack an umbrella and a plastic poncho, or similar. If you're a person who enjoys witnessing torrential downpours, then you can almost set your watch by the thunderstorms each afternoon during the summer month. It's also worth mentioning the Hurricane season which runs from July through to November. Fall/Autumn sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperatures and rainfall start to reduce. The winter months of December, January and February offer the coolest weather with January daytime temperatures averaging around 23°C / 73°F, but these can drop to 9°C / 48°F overnight. The driest months of the year can be found during late Fall, winter into early spring.

Alternative Communities to Consider

Windsor at Westside offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay, but it's always worth looking at other comparable vacation rental home communities and resorts which are located within a few miles of Windsor at Westside and which might also be of interest. It's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, you might want to consider Bella Toscana and also Four Corners and also Tuscan Hills which is a fantastic place to stay if you're a golfer. If you're looking to keep costs down, then check out Crescent Lakes . When it comes to vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

At roughly the same rental cost as Windsor at Westside Resort, it's worth considering Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of adults and children in your party before contacting as many homeowners as possible. This will allow you to identify which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be availability dates, price, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision making process.

Driving Directions to Windsor at Westside

Disney World's Magic Kingdom boasts the highest attendance figures of any theme park on the planet. But Universal Orlando, which has been improving both the quality of its parks and as a consequence, its visitor numbers, is nipping at Disney's heels. So, it's little surprise that all the US domestic, and most international airlines have attempted to capitilize on this success themselves by laying busy flight schedules to Orlando. The city is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Windsor at Westside.

A large number of flights arrive and depart Orlando International Airport each day, with Sandford far less well served. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Windsor at Westside, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Windsor at Westside from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching the Celebration Avenue (exit #2). Keep right to take ramp towards US Highway 192 in a westerly direction. Once on Highway 192 W, drive for 6 miles and then turn left towards Westside Boulevard. After just over two miles turn Turn left onto Monaco Boulevard and the Windsor at Westside Resort will be directly ahead.

It's also worth mentioning that Highway 192 is Kissimmee's primary tourist road and so full of restaurants and shops.
