“One of a Kind, amazing Estate”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was best vacation me and my family have ever had, I'm from a very large family, it was approx 30 of us and we didn't leave the property once outside of food. There always something to keep us entertained. The pool and slide were awesome, as were the arcade games and outdoor activities. Also being on so much land allowed us to play an old fashioned kickball game, which was amazing we did volleyball as well. The children were nonstop entertained as well which everyone knows is a big deal. To be in a place where no one watched TV for 4 days says a lot, we thoroughly enjoyed everything that was put into the property, so much detail the pictures don't do it justice. My parents in whom the trip was for, was overjoyed and for that I'm grateful for such a place to exist. Also Andrew is so great to work with, he and his staff are always a phone call or txt msg away whenever anything is needed, he is very personable. Don't hesitate to book the Sweet Escape, it won't disappoint. We are already planning our trip for next year!

18 of us across 3 generations had the privelage of staying at this property. Although it costs a little more to rent than other homes, we ended up saving money in the long run since we had so much to do on the property! All around favorites were the fantastic pool and water slide! The arcade games and having s'mores around the fire at night. Typically we stay in Kissimmee which might be a little closer to parks etc but staying out here was a quick drive, and being outside of the tourist trap meant no long line ups at restaurants! Book this home and you will have amazing memories to last a lifetime. Bring all the family, there is tons of space. Oh and Andrew the owner is a pleasure to deal with and will help you with anything you need, he is full service all the way!

This house was by far the best experience my family and I have ever had. Everything was perfect, the rooms are amazing along with the pool and backyard. I did not receive a single complaint from my picky kids.till this day My Family talks about the amazing experience they had. I would absolutely recomend this home for any family who's looking for a great family reunion. Most definitely renting this home again :)

“Great place for large family groups”

Bring your own Oompa Loompas - you're going to feel like Willy Wonka! Stay here - you won't be disappointed.

Rented this place for my wife's 60th birthday (late December 2014) and it was one of the most amazing weekends of our lives. We wanted to celebrate this event in a very unique and unusual way and we were not disappointed. Reviews seemed almost too good to be true, yet they didn't come close to our incredible experience - or the fun had by the 36 people in our group. This place is simply AMAZING - and the owner is too!

Before arrival, our 11-year-old granddaughter (who eagerly looked over the website for months) said, "What if this is all a joke & we only find a small house with a tiny pool and yard?" Upon arrival, she turned and said "It IS real - and even better than the pictures!" The next day, her 8-year-old brother (been to Disney several times) told us "This is the best day of my life!"

Prior to our visit, we exchanged many emails with the owner - Andrew. We always found him to be FUN, available (answering most emails within 10 minutes) and accommodating. My wife and I both work in a service industry and thought our customer service training program was good, but after experiencing Andrew's incredibly excellent customer service, we are rethinking our policies and retraining our employees.

We were welcomed at the house by Andrew's caretaker Felicia who gave us a complete tour of the property. Both she and Andrew said they were available any time of day or night - no question too small, stupid or unnecessary. We contacted them a few times during our stay and they responded immediately and were VERY helpful.

Here are a few examples:
* My sister felt her bed was uncomfortable and Andrew had a new bed delivered by the end of the day.
* We couldn't find the switch for an outside light. They helped us find it immediately.
* My brother's dogsitter cancelled last-minute. Andrew helped him find local accommodations for the dog.
* When hot water ran out one morning, we received instructions on resetting the water heater in minutes - with a follow up, making sure we were okay.
* They gave us excellent suggestions for a great local pizza place.
They helped answer/solve many other issues on the fly. In each instance, the service from Andrew and Felicia was top notch.

This place is incredible. It held all 36 of us without us tripping over each other. The main house has an incredible kitchen, living room and dining room upstairs and a spacious common room (with disco, arcade) downstairs - 6 bedrooms in the main house and 4 in the guest house. There are also plenty non-private sleeping spaces. All very comfortable and all of us slept well. The 2 houses are very close with a kitchen and plenty of bathrooms in each. It worked out perfectly for our group because several of us need to eat gluten-free...and we made one kitchen a gluten-free zone. There is also a great outside cooking and eating area. The weather was so perfect we ate every dinner outside on the patio area. Our group consisted of 4 generations (from 2 through 86) and this place offers something for every age.

At one point, my wife stood on the balcony of the main house overlooking the property, tears in her eyes, as she looked out at our family having such a great time...
* Some younger ones were enjoying the playground.
* Some (young and old) were playing mini-golf.
* Others were playing the life-size Candy Land game.
* My 86-year-old father was schooling his grandchildren at the outside pool table.
* Several people were lounging in the hot tub.
* The littlest were playing in the kiddie pool.
* The older kids were having a blast sliding into the larger section of the pool.
* Some of the teenagers could be heard playing guitar hero.
* Others were enjoying a movie in the theater.

At that moment, she was overwhelmed with a feeling of love and pride that we (with Andrew's help) had made all of this possible.

Our family is spread over 6 states and we don't get the chance to get together as much as we'd like. We all attended 2 great weddings earlier in the year, staying in separate rooms or hotels & we felt like we hadn't really had a chance to visit with everyone. Our gathering experience at the Sweet Escape was very different. We scheduled fun group activities and during free time we'd walk from room to room, finding different groups talking or playing together - having the time of their lives enjoying each other's company. We would, and hopefully will, rent the Sweet Escape House again in the very near future.

The rental rate at the Sweet Escape House is not inexpensive and we are not super wealthy but we would do this again in a heartbeat and believe every penny we spent was well worth it. My advice to anyone considering renting the Sweet Escape House is to do everything you can to make it happen! You won't be sorry. Andrew and his Sweet Escape House helped make our dreams come true and we will be forever thankful.

“We had the MOST amazing time EVER!!!!”

My husband and I, our five kids (and their significant others) and grandkids spent 8 nights at Sweet Escape.

What can I say? It was a PERFECT venue to bring our family together. The previous 2 years we had rented individual rooms for each of the families at a resort in Fort Lauderdale. This year we decided to do the Disney experience and found this wonderful home online.

Everyone had a blast and the common areas were wonderful! The only bad thing was that the 8 days went by in a flash. It seemed we had all just arrived and then it was time to leave.

At the end of the trip, we asked our kids if they would rather do a "group home", like Sweet Escape next year or if they'd prefer to go back to a resort (with their own rooms). They all said this was the greatest experience and wanted to do something just like it next year.

Most likely, we will only do the Orlando/Disney thing every 5 years or so, but this vacation has shaped what we'll do as a family going forward and we will be back to Sweet Escape.

The house was wonderful, exactly as described. Pool, amazing. Games, so much fun!

Scavenger hunt was a great group experience. Our kids got REALLY into it.

We had the opportunity to meet Andrew, his wife and family (he invited us to his daughter's big 10th birthday party). What a cool guy!

I could write a book about how perfect this trip was for us all. Highly recommend for all ages. Our youngest was 9 months, oldest 60+. We all had an incredible time!!!!

Tip for grandparents (like us) - Take the top floor of the guest house for yourselves. You'll have a kitchen, 2 balconies and some quiet time. Loved it!

Thanks Andrew and Felicia. Everything was perfect!!!

My daughter was searching for the best place to have a sleepover that would accommodate ALL of her friends. The Sweet Escapes House was perfect for her "Willy Wonka" themed birthday party! Andrew and his staff were always available to assist us. Andrew was available to answer questions even 2 months before our stay. Everyone enjoyed the house from our 15 month old to our 70 year old grandmother.

My husband (fiance at the time) booked The Sweet Escape Dec. 29-Jan.1. We were searching online for a house that would be big enough to accommodate a very large group because we were getting married close by at Bella Collina Country Club and didn't want our immediate families and bridal party to pay for hotel rooms When we came across The Sweet Escape we couldn't believe our eyes. We booked it 5 min. later and couldn't have been happier. We were incredibly grateful to have found this magical place. From the ice cream shaped pool with a hershey slide to the ball pit room, movie theatre, guest house to the mini golf course EVERYTHING was incredible. The staff couldn't of been nicer, they were there for us every step of the way, if we needed ANYTHING they were there. Our friends and family are still talking about it!! We celebrated new years eve there as well and it was the perfect way to ring in the New year. I would highly recommend checking this place out. PS our 4 year old niece and nephew couldn't get enough, they think we are the coolest Aunt and Uncle now :) so if you have kids you definitely need to bring them to The Sweet Escape. Thanks Andrew and the staff for making our wedding that much more magical!
