Wunderschönes Ferienhaus / Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

American Palms ist ein wunderschönes Ferienhaus. Es befindet sich in der Gated Community West Haven.

Die 4 Schlafzimmer sind alle sehr ansprechend eingerichtet und der Master Bedroom mit Bad ist rießig! Bei unseren Mädels kam das Prinzessinnenzimmer super an.

Schöner, großer und offener Wohn-/ Essbereich mit Küche und allem, was man braucht.

Highlights für die Kids und auch für uns war der Pool und Spa. Wir hatten die Poolheizung dazu gebucht und das kann ich über die Wintermonate wirklich empfehlen. Der Pool hatte an unserem Ankunftstag ca. 31 °C . Einfach herrlich.

Zur Lage: das Haus liegt im Gebiet Championsgate, nahe der I-4. Zu den Walt Disney Parks fährt man ca. 10 Minuten. Nach Sea World ca. 15 Minuten.

In der Nähe befinden sich Supermärkte, Restaurants und Shops.

Unsere Empfehlung: Lebensmittel beim Publix in Championsgate holen. Der Supermarkt liegt keine 5 Minuten vom Ferienhaus entfernt. Im Haus steht 1 Packung Waschmittel und Spüli, sowie Seife und Toilettenpapier bei Ankunft bereit. Zum Kleidershopping empfehlen wir den Ross, der sich ganz in der Nähe befindet. Kleider sind hier in der Regel deutlich günstiger als im Outlet.

Der Kontakt zu den Besitzern war sehr nett und am Tag nach unserer Ankunft hat Chris im Haus angerufen , um sich zu versichern, dass alles in Ordnung ist.

Fazit: Perfektes Ferienhaus, super Lage und nette Besitzer. Preis-/ Leistung hat auf jeden Fall gepasst. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt.

English:

American Palms is a beautful vacation villa. The 4 bedrooms are just perfect and the master bedroom with bath is huge! Our girls loved the princess room.

The house has a beautiful living and dining room area. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Our highlight was the pool and spa. We chose to take the pool heating and that was just right. When we arrived the pool had 31°C .Just wonderful. Location: the house is in Championsgate close to I-4. It's about a 10 minute drive to the Disney Parks. Approx. 15 mins. to Sea World.

Nearby you find everything what you need: supermarket, restaurants and shopping. A Publix is located in Championsgate, just when you get off the I4. On arrival a package of detergent, toilet paper und soap was provided.

Chris did a great job before and during our stay. A day after our arrival he gave us a call to make sure everything is ok.

Conclustion: Perfect villa, great location and a nice owner. We found the house was fair priced and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Highly Recommended - you should stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky to be invited to join our friends for a holiday in Florida staying at American Palms where they have stayed before.

It is such a fantastic holiday home and just perfect for the six of us.

So spacious, beautifully furnished, fully equipped and sparklingly clean on arrival.

The open plan living space is marvellous, the bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful and the “lanni”, pool and hot tub were everything we wanted for a relaxing holiday, and all perfect for a group of friends and/or family.

The location, in a gated community, close to Champions Gate and the main A4 highway, is perfect for shopping, restaurants and access to Disney attractions and also for longer trips to the east and west Florida coasts and beyond.

We loved it all and would highly recommend “American Palms” as the place to stay near Orlando.

Thanks also to the extremely helpful and useful information provided by the owners, Chris and Maureen Allchurch prior to our arrival.

High quality comfortable villa in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled to Florida many times for holidays and rented a variety of Villers. We found American Palms 3 years ago and have been there every year since. The villa is of the highest standard with quality fixtures, fittings and furnishing. Ir also has an amazing pool and hot tub and large outdoor area fully equipped with loungers tables and chairs. It has lighting and a fan, so eating outside in the evening is wonderful.

The large open lounge, dining area and kitchen makes it very comfortable even with a full house. With a large TV, DVD player, stereo system , great wifi and free telephone calls home it has more than many people have at home. The Villa also has an attractive games room and bicycles available for use .

The property is looked after on a day-to-day basis by a local amanagement company who are quick to respond to even minor issues. They are polite pleasant and efficient.

The owners of this property see it as their holiday home and not just a commercial opportunity. Which explains the very high standard of this villa. There are also first class people to deal with. They are friendly and helpful, supplying copious amounts of information on the surrounding area, eating out and hope to get the best deals on the attractions to make your holiday more memorable.

We made the decision within a week of return this year to return again next year. We are already looking forward to our next visit to what is becoming almost like our own holiday home .

I would have no reservation in recommending American Palm for your next vacation. I would be surprised if this would not be the start of many.

Great summer vacation.

  • 5 of 5

American palms was the perfect vacations house. The property was clean and well-maintained. Pool area had a big pool and a bad tube. Chris prowled us with a lot of information about things to do in Orlando. If we are going to Orlando again we will ask Chis to rent the house again and we are going to tell all our friends about the house. Best regards from Karin and Rolf from Sweden.

Owner's Response: There are so many things to think about when planning a vacation. This is why I provide helpful general information to all of my guests.

A genuine "Home Away from Home".

  • 5 of 5

As frequent visitors to the Orlando area, we were very satisfied with our stay at the American Palms. We were celebrating a surprise birthday gathering for our son turning 30, and this home was perfectly set up for the event! Large, open area was great, along with the pool / patio area. The area is also a bonus, which is convenient to the Disney parks, but away from all the tourist traffic. Certainly deserves a 5 star rating!
