Good House with nice owners!
"We had a group of 14 people (6 adults and 8 children) and fit very comfortably in the house. The house has everything you need to have a nice vacation - comfortable spaces, good kitchen equipment and a good BBQ outside. Location is excellent, you are literally 5 min away from Animal Kingdom and about 20 min from Universal Studios.
But what give the house 5 stars is the nice owners it has. We had an inconvenience of our own fault and they went out of their way to help us. Maybe this is not the most luxurious house in Orlando, but to us it felt just as nice!."

"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."

"We booked this wonderful house for a family holiday and it was the best of decisions. We really enjoyed our stay & house is ideal in location and everything it has to offer within.
There is a lovely homely feeling immediately when you walk in, it is spacious but cosy at the same time.
With two lounges it gives you the chance to have some quiet time away from the television which worked really well for us.
The kitchen is fully equipped with loads of mugs & glasses to go round and the furniture was really comfortable (which can't always be said for holiday homes)
The pool furniture was great with same also under shade and the pool is suitable to just relax in whilst others who want to can swim.
The beds were really comfortable & rooms offer a quiet peaceful private space.
Laundry facilities were fab, machines are so quick and easy to use and the games for the kids were a fantastic bonus.
The location is close to Disney parks so you don't have a long journey to get home after a fun tiring day out and the complex of homes is lovely and quiet and felt really safe.
Thank you for a great holiday home - we will be back!"
