Excellent vacation villa on a superb location
"We stayed in Star Lake Manor with our family members, in total 9 adults and 4 kids. The information we received before arrival was very complete and helpfull, describing all important equipment in the house, directions to get there, and it had information about restaurants and attractions nearby.
The location in the gated community of Formosa Gardens is very good. The house offers great lakeview and it's very relaxing to sit on the large pooldeck or on the balcony and enjoy the surroundings. The distance to all major attractions is very short: Disney is just minutes away while SeaWorld and Universal are a 20-30 minutes drive.
The house is in optimal condition and has everything you need. We all enjoyed the pool very much. Especially the kids couldn't get enough and played in the water everyday. As the house as lots of other fun available, like X-boxes, a games room and a cinema the kids were playing in the pool all the time. The cinema is fantastic, I wish we had more time to enjoy some more of the great movie collection including some of the newest 3D Bluerays.
The contact with the owners, Paul & Rachel Sharrock was easy and responsive. They've put a lot of effort in making our stay as comfortable as possible. The local management company answered our questions and remarks and were very helpfull as well.
We would love to come back here and highly recommend this vacation home."

"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 house was absolutely fantastic! It was super cozy and comfortable. The bedrooms were enormous in size each with their own bathroom. The media room downstairs was a huge bonus. The living area was grand and the outdoor space was amazing. The pool had something for everyone in our group with the jacuzzi and the kiddie pool on the other end. The views from the pool were serene and relaxing. The owner and property manager were super attentive to our every need. I would highly recommend this house!"

"We stayed at the villa for 12 days and our party consisted of a family of 3 generations with ages ranging from 23 to 81. They say location, location, location is everything but this villa goes beyond that. We have stayed at Formosa Gardens before but in another villa so knew it was perfectly placed for the theme parks and for fantastic discount shopping but villa Bellagio was perfect. Its location on the lake was fabulous with virtually all day sunshine. The bedrooms were all excellent and beautifully appointed, all facilities were first class and the size and location of the super sized pool and extended deck just made this a perfect choice. There were no negative points and our whole family would return here tomorrow."
