This hotel made me feel very aggravated, angry and sorry for our 3 kids.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: not what we paid for, pool was not heated
We rented a 4 bedroom private house with a pool that was supposed to be heated. After getting our house location and going to get into it, we discovered it was a 3 bedroom condo with no pool other than a community pool and no play area for our 3 young kids. We called them back and the person working there said he would call us back. No call so we went over to the office and they were closed and would not answer the phone. Finally the person called us back and said they would have no house for us until Monday, 2 days away. Monday morning comes and we go to the office and sit there for 2 hours. Finally the same person comes to us and says we only have a townhouse but it has a pool, no it was a hot tub! He comes back and shows us the only other place another townhouse but with a pool this time. We ask about the pool heat the person tells us he will turn it on himself we he meets us there. At 6 pm we finally get in and the maid is still cleaning he shows up, we ask about the heat and he went in the back of house and act likes he does something. Needless to say no heat for the pool, kids do not go in it at all ( at least 65 degrees) and lied to by them at least 4 times. We also met someone that checked in after hours and they got the same thing we ordered but got what they paid for. At least 2 hours after us. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

I was very pleased and satisfied

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
This was my first time reserving with American vacation homes and I was very pleased. The house was not far at all from the theme parks. The beds weren't so comftable but they weren't a problem. The down part of the house there werent nearby resturants or stores but Overall the house was very clean and maintained and not far away from the theme parks.

Very spacious accommodations; vacation home was well equipped.

Vacation home was much larger than expected; we rented a three bedroom but ended up with a five bedroom. Lovely layout; well equipped home. Beds were comfortable (and we had plenty of selection)! Home was situated directly in front of a community orange grove; the scent was delightful. Fresh squeezed OJ, every morning, with juicer supplied in our home, was an unplanned bonus. Pool was small, and cool, despite increasing pool temp. Would definitely recommend to others!

Spring Break Trip

Upon arrival our condo was not ready nor did we have an front door code, but within minutes we were upgraded to a home with a private pool at no extra charge. The home was nice, clean and updated. A very relaxing place to spend spring break. I would definitely book another vacation with American Vacation Homes. For the price of an Orlando hotel , you get much, much more.( living room, kitchen, mutliple baths, private pool, dining room, garage, etc. )

Good value for larger groups/families

By comparison, good value for a large family. Full kitchen and washer/dryer to save some money on eating out and laundry. Nice sized safety gated pool (we had cooler temps during our stay so we didn't use the pool much). Garage to keep car covered but, no garage door opener. Well maintained gated community. Good sized house - four bedrooms and three bathrooms; although, the master bedroom was the only room to have an ample sized queen bed. The other rooms either had a full or twin beds, which wasn't as comfortable to larger adults. Only two TVs in the entire house, an average sized one in the main room and a small one in the master room. On the down side, you aren't provided with the location of your house until the day you check in. So it can be located anywhere in the Orlando area. Fortunately, we were given a house central to the airport and attractions. Additionally, you aren't provided with the extra amenities of a resort which means you have to bring or buy things like shampoo, sponges, dish/dish washer detergent, laundry detergent, coffee/filters, paper towels, etc. They do provide the small soap bars for the bathrooms, toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels and 1 tablet for the dishwasher. Also, the house wasn't as clean as we'd prefer but, probably no more dirty than any other well travelled hotel (even though as part of your fee you are charged a cleaning fee). The carpets looked like they could use a good cleaning and lamps in the rooms didn't work. One last thing, you're asked to provide a $250 deposit that's charged to your credit card and not returned for 30 days. As of this writing, I'm still waiting for the credit.

Will never stay here again!!!

We arrived on Monday afternoon. The next morning we left around 9.15 for a day trip to Universal Studios. We returned around 9.30 pm that night to find out that the home had been broken into while we were gone. We still believe that we were wachted as we left, since the break-in occured before 11 am. The sliding door wall had been reomved from its track to allow access into home. Only our belonings were taken (about $2000.00 worth of items). Management had left a note for us to call them so they could arrange to move us into a different home. The Sheriff's dept. had also left paperwork for us to fill out. We agreed to me moved and were told to call the next morning to deal with the paperwork, since management had already left for the day. We started calling early the next morning and left many voicemails, but were never called back. We finally got tired of waiting (it is now 2pm and we have waisted a day, waiting by the phone!) and drove to the office. We were told that the lady would be right with us, but after waiting for 15 minutes we were told that she was on her lunch break and could not see us. We told them that we would not leave before speaking to someone. Finally the boss came out and agreed to meet us. He told us that by providing us with a different home, they didn't see the need to do any further follow up with us. He told us that he would call before we were to leave Florida, but that never happened either.\nPlease, be aware, ask to be put in a gated community. This event ruined our vacation. Break-ins happen, but managent was awefull!

Excellent place to stay for weekend getaway

this was our first time using one of the rental homes for our anniversary. which was a great idea. in the begin we had a little trouble finding the home but after we got there and walked inside it was so nice we couldn't beleive our eyes. it was such a wonderful house it was clean everything was there that we need all we had to do was buy grocery. the house was a four bedroom pool home with a garage with a washer and dryer. everthing was clean. the staff was very nice and pleasant we arrived late but the staff took care of us anyway they were closing they didn't rush to get us out they took there time and explained everything to us. we will try to keep this as a place to go for our future anniversaries.

FILTHY --- Poor Management

We stayed in a 4 bedroom home near Disney and we were astounded by the condition of the property. The house was FILTHY. It did not contain basic essentials such as sheets, towels, utensils, blankets for all the beds.

The house was dirty. There were ants & bugs everywhere. The house was supposed to be 5 minutes from DISNEY and was 20 minutes and we had to pay tolls. There was one wash cloth for a family of FIVE people. We had to buy our own toilet paper. No Security gate on the POOL which is mandated by LAW. The BEDs were HARD and not comfortable. The Master bedroom was suppose to have a KING size bed. All the beds were doubles no Queen or King size.. The CABLE was out the entire time. Calls to office for assistance went unanswered. POOR POOR POOR house. We travel to Disney often and would have booked our next trip in December but this house was AWFUL save your money. Check another company this one. VERY BAD.
