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

1. How Can We Sleep Up To 52 People At A 10 Bedroom Estate?
Many families do it all the time! The 10 bedrooms have beds for 24 people (assuming double occupancy in the King & Queen beds)... We also have 14 twin rollaways and 4 queen sleeper sofas...adding room for 22 more sleepers. The rest either use couches, their own sleeping bags (plenty of space), and many teens/tweens LOVE to use the fully reclining theater seats -- so they can kickback under blankets & pillows--watching movies and playing video games on the giant screen until the wee hours! Babies, of course, use our pack-n-play cribs (or their own!)

2. Do You Allow Weddings/Events On Site?
Only small ones with 65 or fewer guests. If you're planning a larger event, check out our other mega estates: The Great Escape Lakeside (property # 4109211) and The Ever After Estate (property # 281061).

3. It Says You Have A 3 Night Minimum But Can I Please Book Only 2 Nights? (or just 1 Night!)
You can book 1 night or 2 nights only when we have a 1 or 2 night GAP in our calendar. For example, if one guest is checking out on Thursday and another guest is checking in on Saturday, then we'll allow you to book THAT Thursday-Saturday by special request. In all other circumstances, you would have to book a minimum of 3 nights. Please note that while you may only NEED 2 nights, booking/paying for 3 nights--has its advantages! For example, you can stay as late as you want on that last/extra day (or arrive as early as you want on the first day--depending on which day you make to be the "extra" one!)

4. What's The Price?
The rates posted on Homeaway are completely accurate! Click "RATES," enter your dates, and then click VIEW DETAILS under the nightly rate in the upper right corner. Alternatively, you can also use the RATE CALCULATOR on The Sweet Escape's website.
Nightly rates are $995-1445/night. (Higher during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Xmas/New Year's). Departure cleaning is $888 and taxes are 11%

5. Are The Rates Negotiable?
Sorry, no. However, you'll definitely find it more cost effective to sleep 15-52 people at Sweet Escape than you would to sleep the same number of people at any decent area hotel --especially when you factor in all of the incredible amenities at Sweet Escape!

6. Do You Allow Pets?
On a case-by-case basis, we allow hypoallergenic, potty-trained dogs for a rate of $25/day.

Location

Car: Necessary

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;

Year Purchased: 2011

About: 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...

Why Minneola, FL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
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...
