Hello, I am Linda Tilston and I have been renting property in the Orlando area for over 15 years. My family and I are huge Disney fans and visit the area, staying in both of our villas, several times a year.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2003
We previously owned another rental villa close to Formosa Gardens and chose to move to the estate due to the uniqueness of the larger plots and in particular with our property the wonderful south facing lake view.
Before we owned our own villa we stayed in several hotels, apartments and rental villas. We found the rental villas to have only very basic amenities especially in the kitchens. So, when setting up our own villas we wanted to make them feel like a home away from home. We stay in both our villas regularly and enjoy updating the decor and equipment within them.
As usual we had a lovely time at your house last week and it was a
great family time.
We have just wrapped up the second stay at this property and we all agree it will not be our last! The house is well appointed and roomy for my entire family. Everyone has a bed and a bathroom to use and the design of the house makes it great for some to nap while others watch tv or swim or play in the game room. Hands down, a great value for this Magic Kingdom convenient property. Thanks for everything, hope to be back real soon!
We’ve just returned from a 2-week stay (June 2015) at American Dream. The house is superb – a shining example of ‘how to get it right’ with a vacation rental property. Its location can’t be bettered if you’re in the area to visit the Disney parks (5/10 mins in the car and you’re driving under the Disney ‘Welcome’ arch) and there are loads of restaurants close by along the 192. It’s only about 20/30 minutes from Universal too.
American Dream is in a gated community that is safe, picturesque and well maintained. The house itself is maintained to a very high standard, has lots of space, all the beds are extremely comfortable, the pool area is huge - and I felt quite sorry for all the visitors to the other houses around that don’t have a games room like this one!
The family room and kitchen area is well set up for post-theme-park chatting and the couches in there are really comfy. The air conditioning is set up properly (we’ve rented houses in the past where we’ve had to spend every evening in sweaters because of icy-cold - and unadjustable – aircon). The temperature range was perfect - and adjustable, if needed. The kitchen and BBQ enable cooking of all standards. Fortunately, one of my sons is a professional chef so we left all that to him and he expressed great satisfaction with the cooking equipment.
The owner, Linda, maintained excellent communication after we’d made the booking and we had all the information we needed before and during our stay.
American Dream is undoubtedly the best house we’ve ever rented in Orlando (this was our 10th visit) and I can recommend it without any hesitation.
The villa and amenities were fantastic and the proximity to Disney was perfect. Linda could not have been any more helpful throughout the entire rental process and throughout our stay. We had one small problem with the pool but after a few text messages to the caretaker, the pool guy came and was able to fix the filter. Our family of 11 is grateful to have stayed in such a wonderful villa and for the consideration the owners provided to us by making sure every detail was attended to. I would absolutely stay here again.
I would like to say our stay at the American Dream was everything we had hoped for and more. The pictures does no justice for this home. It is everything and more and had everything we needed to accommodate our group of 13. It is definitely a home away from home place to stay and highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a place to stay with a large family. Thanks again for making our holiday memorable with our family!
This house was a pleasure to stay in.
It was accurately advertised & very clean & tidy.
The attention to detail was the best we have ever stayed in ie: even a sewing kit and a box of first aid plasters.
The pool area was on an oversized lot with a magnificent view. Also, the toys in the pool were well appreciated by the grandchildren .
I would definately recommend this property with a lovely owner & manager.
My family have just spent a wonderful two weeks in the American Dream Villa which is just like what you see in the pictures but even better to live in ,from the great size bedrooms to the open plan living area with a great games room . The outer space which is my favourite has a swimming pool , that has lake views with amazing sunset . Very near Disney ,Universal 20 mins ,Legoland 40 mins .Owners very helpful and know the area very well. All in all 5 star holiday villa highly recommended
