***ANSWERS TO SOME COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS***

During your stay, the entire Sweet Escape will be entirely yours! You'll have full unrestricted private access to 10 bedrooms, 5 acres, 2 buildings with 2 huge kitchens, 3 living rooms, the "desserted" dining room, porches, decks, the ice cream pool, grill, splash park, slide, sports courts, mini golf course, playgrounds, the discotheque, indoor & outdoor movie theaters, game rooms, and more...
What makes The Sweet Escape different from other vacation rentals?
The Sweet Escape is a celebrity-level mansion on 5 private gated acres with incredible amenities that will keep your entire group entertained for days and days regardless of their age or activity preferences. Everything else for rent in the Orlando area are just ordinary houses. Other than Sweet Escape (and our sister properties, The Great Escape Lakeside & The Ever After Estate), Orlando area rentals are all just 2-3,000 square foot "cookie cutter" homes in overbuilt subdivisions with traffic, noise issues, and lots of rules. They are often so close to the neighbors that you can reach out your window and shake hands with them while they are still inside of their houses! The pools in those ordinary vacation homes are tiny. Their level of service is close to non-existent. No one even meets you on site when you check-in! With the exception of 2 or 3 rooms (at most), the decor at any other home is extraordinarily basic. ANY OTHER ORLANDO AREA VACATION HOME IS *JUST* a place to sleep and then forget about. In contrast, Sweet Escape IS a vacation resort/experience itself. It is a place you will never want to leave. It is an estate you will be trying in vain to describe to your friends & family back home. It is a vacation experience that you will want to return to year after year and that everyone in your group will be talking about for months and years to come. At Sweet Escape, you will sleep in comfort, swim in our enormous themed pool, soak in our splash park, slide down sugar rush mountain, play mini golf, volleyball, tetherball, laser tag, pinball, arcade games...lounge in hammocks under palm trees, sing and dance in our 1200+ square foot karaoke night club, enjoy outdoor AND indoor movies...and so much more... Perhaps most importantly, you'll be alone in our 5 acres of natural privacy with plenty of porches and decks to enjoy the silence...Of course, Sweet Escape also has all the amenities of a modern luxury home including granite counter tops, gorgeous woodwork & cabinetry, luxury flooring, etc; Put simply: Other vacation rentals are just run-of-the-mill "nice" homes.. Sweet Escape is a multi-million dollar themed estate property. Click here to read a news article about The Sweet Escape or Click HERE to read TripAdvisor Reviews Of Sweet Escape.
Our group is comprised only of adults-- Isn't Sweet Escape only for children?
NOT AT ALL! A good number of our regular clients are professional business groups, corporations, church leadership, etc; Of course, children absolutely LOVE The Sweet Escape and never want to leave (In fact, parents often remark that they "wasted" money on Orlando theme park tickets because their children only wanted to play at Sweet Escape and NOT at Disney/Universal/SeaWorld!) BUT adults find the quiet, relaxing environment perfect for them as well. We are set on 5 beautiful and natural acres with plenty to do for the young, the young-at-heart, and even the admittedly not-so-young. Sweet Escape is the perfect blend of youthful whimsicality and mature luxury. Remember, there's a casino games table...a Hershey massage room with indoor sauna...elegant kitchen...and so much more for adults.
Are the video game machines free of charge?
Absolutely! No quarters or dollar bills are needed. Just press to the "START" button and play any one of dozens of hit games. The only exceptions would be our CANDY CRANE (players control a crane that drops, picks up, and delivers a handful of candy through a chute) and our GUMBALL PINBALL machines; These require quarters and give out candy prizes almost every time.
Does the rental include linens, kitchenware, etc;?
Yes: EVERYTHING you need to enjoy The Sweet Escape as a home...is absolutely included! We have plenty of kitchenware, state-of-the-art appliances, an enormous inventory of towels, linens, etc; When it comes to replaceable items such as toilet paper, we provide one roll per bathroom and when guests run out, they generally re-stock for themselves. If there is anything you need to make your stay more enjoyable---and it is something you're concerned we might not have---let us know and we'll definitely work something out!
Can someone who has limited mobility access bedrooms at The Sweet Escape?
Yes! EIGHT of our ten bedrooms are at ground level. There are two concrete steps outside to the "Lemonade Front Porch." Anyone who can make it up those two steps will actually have access to EIGHT of our ten bedrooms!
How much does it cost and what are your payment terms?
The Sweet Escape varies from $1195 to just over $1,895 per night. We do not charge per person. Your group can have up to 52 people and we won't charge you a penny more! Throughout most of the year, it's $1195 per weeknight and $1345 per weekend night. If you bring 40-50 people to The Sweet Escape, it usually works out to be only about $100 per person for a weekend! From Memorial Day weekend through mid-August, the rate is $1495 per weeknight and $1645 per weekend night. The higher $1895 rate occurs during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year's and the mid-season $1295 base rate takes place during certain Spring Break weeks from mid February through late April. During all seasons, there is a one-time departure cleaning fee of $888. Taxes are 11%. An amenities fee of $188 is included in each reservation covering periodically replaced items such as linens, sporting equipment, pool toys, etc; If you pay by cash or check, a refundable security deposit of $1500 is required. Alternatively, you can leave a credit card on-file for incidentals-- just like when you check into a hotel. At the time of booking, we take a 30% deposit by your choice of Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Cash, Wire Transfer, or Personal Check. The balance isn't due until 60 days before your scheduled check-in.
What is the cancellation policy?
You can cancel up to 90 days prior to your scheduled arrival and pay only a $75 cancellation fee plus any credit card fees assessed. If you cancel with less than 90 days to go, your deposit will be forfeited along with any other monies paid.
If there are only 10 bedrooms, how do you sleep up to 52 people?
Simple! The ten bedrooms have King, Queen, and Bunk Beds for 24 people (hover your mouse over "PHOTOS" and select any room to see its bedding). We also have 14 twin rollaways and 3 Queen-sized sleeper sofas. Together, they add room for an additional 22 people to sleep. To jump from 46 to 52 sleepers, our clients often make use of the 4 luxury theater seats which recline fully like beds and include blankets & pillows. (Young adults & teens, in particular, love to fall asleep in the theater after watching movies and playing video games on the giant screen until the wee hours!). Couches are also used...

About Andrew Greenstein
There is NOTHING like The Sweet Escape. Look carefully at the photos of other luxury homes and you will see soul-less marble museums that will make you say 'wow, nice' for 2 moments and your children will be bored. You will not remember much about the other homes, only the rest of your vacation. In contrast, Sweet Escape IS* a vacation spot. You will be talking about it for YEARS to come. There is a DISCOTHEQUE inside with family karaoke. There are MULTIPLE video game arcades--not just a room with 2 game tables like the other homes have. REAL commercial video game machines AND pinball AND juke boxes AND prize redemption machines and MORE.. There is a MOVIE THEATER by the pool AS WELL AS a movie theater indoors. There are 5 acres of privacy, sports courts, your own mini golf course.. There is a HUGE ice cream cone pool. The hot tub is a cherry on top. There's a water SPLASH park.. There's a giant Hershey bottle shooting water onto a chocolate slide that comes down from 'sugar high mountain..' There's a laser tag room, a massage room, a romantic boardwalk/carnival room-- and SO MUCH MORE...
Andrew Greenstein purchased this Estate in 2011
Why Andrew Greenstein chose Lake County
It's close enough to all of the attractions yet far enough to afford lots of private acreage and a sense of retreat. It is surrounded by gorgeous lakes and Florida's only rolling hills---even a small mountain named SUGAR*LOAF-- how appropriate!
What makes this Estate unique
A swimming pool 2.5X larger than most vacation rental homes. A splash park A private DISCOTHEQUE WITH KARAOKE An elaborate video game arcade. Mini golf. Sports courts. Privacy/acreage. Laser tag. 2 enormous kitchens... and more...

Five perfect days for a big family
We had our first and ever family reunion in Sweet Escape, and nobody wanted it to finish.
We are 7 siblings from one side, and 3 from the other, each of us with kids from 6 months up to 21 year old no-so-much-kid, plus grandpa, we were 40+
And everybody was confortable there, every age group had things to do at any time of the day/night
it's a guarantee 24x7 fun place for every single family.
Thank you Salva!!
It was great having you and your family stay! You're welcome at any of our estates in the future!
Amazing! Best Vacation Yet!
I don't know where to begin! We walked in and were blown away. The pictures online don't do justice to the amazing detail and imagination put into this house! As I got the tour from Nicole, I could hear the kids running from room to room screaming "oh my God". We were a group of 13 kids, 10 y/o down to 2, and 11 adults. I don't know who had more fun.The big kids, aka adults, or the little ones. The place has everything. I have taken my family on cruises, Disney, Outer Banks etc. vacations and this place blew them away! We didn't have to leave the house for anything except groceries. The pool was perfect and the main meeting place for everyone every morning. The house has a beeping alarm anytime someone opens a door to the outside. This was great for the parents to be able to relax at dinner upstairs while the kids played in the arcade or movie theater. Also for piece of mind, the doors leading to the pool have a high lock so kids can't reach it. At night we would lock that and sleep easy. The BBQ is top notch and we used it a lot. The BBQ bar area and pool area is the perfect set up. You can cook, hang out and watch the kids from everywhere. The kitchen is stocked with all of the pots and pans type items you can imagine. We all had a blast doing the house scavenger hunt! Challenging but loads of fun. Everyone knows from pictures how beautiful the place is. But what makes any vacation great? Well rested parents! The beds were all very comfortable and we all raved about how well we were able to sleep! I have rented many multi family houses and were disappointed by the night sleep we got. Or should I say didn't get because the beds were uncomfortable. Not the case here at all. I am now looking into the karaoke system they had! It was awesome. None of us can sing a lick but we sang our hearts out with that system! The kids loved it! Singing and dancing under the lights! I can keep going on and on. I guess the best way to let anyone know how much fun we had is by our booking of the Great Escape Lakeside! We will be going there in 10 weeks! We can't get enough! Something tells me the Ever After Estate is in our future as well! One last thing because I need to mention it. Andrew and his crew were there for us every step of the way! More than accommodating! Thank you Andrew and Belinda for our best vacation yet!
Upon arrival the entire group was spechlees and breathless. The pictures and the videos didn't do this location any justice. The Sweat Escape is AMAZING from the beginning to the end. There wasn't a dull moment in the this house, and no one slept a wink. Let me tell you don't waste your time going to the theme parks because you will be entertained at this beauty. Andrew G the owner is amazing and his staff members are very processional and attentive. My family has already booked his newest location The Great Escape Lakeside. So if your looking for a great time at an affordable cost with professional and courteous staff please contact Andrew. If you're the family planner like myself your family and friends will be glad you did. We are looking forward to seeing The Great Escape Lakeside. Thank you Andrew for creating this amazing atmosphere that the entire family can enjoy while being comfortable.
All I can say is WOWWWWWWWWWWWWW
We had a pretty large group. A group of 25 Adults and 12 Kids. I would never stay in a hotel again after being here for 3 nights with family. We literally only left the property to grocery shop. So much extra linen available blankets, towels, sheets, roll aways. One night we all just laid in the Disco room and slept there. Everywhere you go there is something that you can do. It's almost like Disney World you need a good week to enjoy it all. Ginger was our tour guide and she was beyond helpful. The receiver wasn't working in the theatre when we arrived but she made sure a new one was brought in right in time for the NBA GAME 4 FINAL. Andrew is extremely helpful and very prompt with his responses. The kids loved everything about it. It's very kid friendly, and the pool is kid friendly as well. Guys just book this home you will not have a worry in the world I promise you.
Great property for big groups!
We were also part of othe group of 12 adults and 16 kids. There was more than enough room for everyone, and the house was well-equipped with everything needed. Owner was attentive to all questions and concerns, and bent over backwards to make sure everything was as it should be. The house was full of entertainment--so much that we rarely left the property and never got bored. The kids were in heaven, the adults were equally happy, and all well. Some of our group didn't realize there was a main big house with 6 bedrooms, and the other 4 bedrooms were in the guest house down the driveway about 50 yards or so. That turned out to be great due to wanting a retreat from the noise of the big house and the arcade games, etc. Overall, it's hard to imagine having a much better experience with such a large group--it was ideal!
Sweet Escapes was a perfect place for our family reunion!
We had 12 adults and 16 kids, and there were so many beds we never even used. This place CAN really sleep up to 52 comfortably. I personally liked having a guest house separately from the main house, because I have young children and could put them to bed at the guest house and not have to worry about the night owls waking them up. (And we used WiFi video monitors to check on the kids while we went back to the main house.) The kids loved all of the activities, especially the free video games. The ball pit room and laser tag room were also big hits. The owner responded immediately to any questions or problems we had, and resolved any issues within the day. I would recommend this to property to any large group looking for a place to vacation.
This gorgeous 10 bedroom, 5 acre property is located just north of Clermont - Disney World's main suburb! It's the only part of Florida with rolling hills---some of the most gorgeous scenery around. There are plenty of malls, restaurants, and other attractions nearby (movies, bowling, laser tag, arcades, playgrounds, kids' play places, and more!)..There's also plenty of historic downtown areas, landmarks like the Citrus Tower, Lake Ridge Winery, etc;
