luxury villa in the heart of Florida

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start...

The photos really do not do the villa justice. It is absolutely stunning from the moment you pull onto the drive way. Once entered it literally took myself and the rest of my family of 5's breathe away.

It was cleaned immaculately and defiantly had the wow factor.

All rooms are massive and the master bedrooms are outstanding. We joked that you could even sleep two people in the walk in wardrobe of the first master bedroom.

The pool area is of a really good size and comes with all the toys and patio furniture you could need. The patio doors that fully slide open are fabulous, we only wish we found this out on the first day rather than towards the end of our holiday.

The games room is an added extra and had hours of fun in there when we finally pulled ourselves away from the pool.

Kitchen has everything you could need and a lovely gift from Chris with cold drinks in fridge apon arrival.

Chris (the owner) could not have been anymore helpful from the moment I enquired about the villa. He helped with the best/cheapest flights available to car hire to local shopping malls. Anything you needed to know he was happy to help out with. That's if his first few emails didn't have the information you were looking for already in them. I have never dealt with a more helpful and genuinely nice man ever before. He literally took most of the stress straightaway from the holiday.

I would 100% recommend this villa to friends and hope we get the opportunity to stay here once again in the near future.

I must also mention the sofas are the most comfortablist I have ever sat on. When first viewing photos we thought could do with a little up date but once arriving I understand why they haven't. Defiantly what you need after a long day on your feet.

Finally we found the villa in excellent position for exploring Florida.

Close to the parks, malls and restaurants. The circle b bar reserve is a must. Just don't experience it the first time at dust because it really does give you the shivers!!

If you book this villa there is no way you will be disappointed.

Amazing villa, amazing owner, amazing holiday!!

The villa was fantastic , we had looked at lots of villas before settling on this one.Chris made the whole process easy and straightforward. The information that he provided made sure everything went as smooth as possible.

The villa itself was immaculate, in a great location and we will use it again in the future.Once again thanks very much Chris.

Fantastic place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in many villas over the years, this is by far the best yet. It is extremely clean, well equipped and very spacious. Chris, the owner was very helpful throughout and responded very quickly when I had an enquiry. The outdoor area is exceptionally clean and again very spacious. Cannot fault this in any way, it was brilliant. Am disappointed that April/may dates next year do not seem available as that is my intended next visit!! Would absolutely stay here again and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Chris. Top stay.

Owner's Response: Maureen and I are delighted with these thoughtful comments. We are indeed booked across April and May 2018. For instance, that May 2018 reservation was agreed in May 2016 by the same guest who also simultaneously booked May 2017. Like many villa owners we get many repeat guests who often book well ahead of their vacation. Florida is blessed by great weather and great things to do throughout the year. We always urge guests to consider other suitable dates. Naturally, we do however recognise that that such date changes are not always possible.

great location, immaculate interior and pool deck,

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at different villas on West Haven for 7 years, this year we found the best yet. The villa is spacious, well furnished and spotless. The pool deck is large and allows for all day sun worshipers. The location is great for both park visitors and golfers like us. The increased facilities at Championsgate Centre provide eating options close to the villa. The management Company Florida Spirit were supportive without being intrusive and the owners were great. Booked another 5 weeks there next year.

We enjoyed our stay at American Palms very much! Beautiful home, very spacious, with great pool and hot tub. Enjoyed the "game room" in the garage as well. Would recommend it highly!

Perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property due to it's excellent location and proximity to the local golf courses which were excellent. The villa is equipped with everything that you require for a relaxing, stress-free and switch off holiday. We have stayed in many villas, cottages, gives etc around the world and American Palms must rate in the top few we have stayed in. Chris and Maureen are fantastically helpful with information before you travel with useful advice and although we've never met we feel like we know them!

The villa layout and location is superb and facilities and security and top notch. The pool is lovely and big, and the spa just lovely, and you do have a lot of privacy, whereas a lot of American villas lack this. The games and fitness room is well equipped and with only two of us staying we had a huge amount of space at the villa. Even if there had of been eight of us we would still have had loads of space to spare. I'm always picky about a kitchen and it's equipment but this one literally had everything you need.

We did fairly non-tourist things and played some fabulous golf courses, highly recommending Champion's Gate which is only 5 mins away. We also went to Lake Eola, and Winter Park which were beautiful areas with a multitude of individual boutiques and pavement cafes, where you could forget you were on the doorstep of the Disney theme parks as well!

All in all, a fantastic place to stay and we plan to return.
