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.

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.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Such an amazing property! This was our first time visiting Florida and we loved every second. The property was fantastic for us. Clean, very spacious and in a great location. We couldn't have asked for more. The owners are extremely helpful, in providing lots of useful information to help make our stay even more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this property for your visit to Florida.

The property is ideally located for both Disney and Universal. We hired a car for use during our holiday. Close to Walmart and Publix supermarket for essentials. We ate out most evenings though. Our favourite restaurants were Chilis, Texas Roadhouse and Crackerbarrel. You must visit Twistee Treats too! Amazing ice-cream and milkshakes. I really hope we get to visit again soon. Thank you

American Palms is clean.

  • 5 of 5

After a very long wait ( and I mean long - 6 hours) due to a delayed flight at our airport of origin it was really nice to come home to a very clean and quiet house. We liked that the backyard was fenced in which added privacy when you're outside by the pool. The kids really enjoyed the SPA. We stayed for a week and the one thing that really helped us navigate our way around the area was because the owners, Chris Allchurch and his wife, were very helpful and generous with information. It was really a pleasure dealing with them. If we ever go on a trip to Orlando we will definitely book this place again.
