Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you to our guests for their very kind remarks. Many guests arrive at our vacation home after a long flight. This especially applies to international traveller's and also to internal flights within the US. We make sure that American Palms is well prepared for your arrival. We work closely with our American Management Company to ensure that our high standards are maintained. In life, information is an essential ingredient for success. This applies to all things and is very important for your vacation. Tips, recommendations and advice from Maureen and myself have been accumulated over many years as visitors to the Sunshine State of Florida. We also welcome ideas and information from our guests that we can pass on to future guests of American Palms. As our web site (www.villas-elite.com) says " Helping the magic begin" is our constant aim!

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!
