Thank you for your interest in The Ruby Retreat. Our stunning vacation home, built in 2012, has 2331 sq. ft. of luxurious living space, features 5 bedrooms (two king master suites and three themed rooms) and 4 bathrooms. The south facing, heated swimming pool, spa & extended pool deck back onto a small and peaceful lake (no rear neighbors). With shopping and restaurants on your doorstep and Central Florida's main attraction, Walt Disney World, only minutes away, this is the place to be.

Our beautiful rental home is located within the gated community of Crystal Cove in Orlando, Florida, where you can enjoy a peaceful morning coffee on the lanai while Red Shouldered Hawks fly high above your rooftop and Snowy Egrets catch their reflections in the sparkling lake below. It's a place where within minutes you can be shaking hands with Mickey Mouse, exploring the mysteries of Hogwarts castle, be splashed by Shamu or score a hole-in-one.

The Ruby Retreat comprises of 5 bedrooms:

1.) Luxurious king sized master bedroom with en-suite including his and hers sinks, a terrific garden tub and large shower

2.) Second master bedroom with king sized bed and en-suite full bath

3.) Surf inspired queen sized room

4.) Minnie Mouse themed room with full sized trundle

5.) Amazing Spiderman themed room with full sized trundle

Our large open floor plan includes a family room with designer recliner sofas, a relaxing seating area with desk, and formal or informal dining options, the choice is yours!

From the family room, large sliding doors lead out onto the extended sun deck with a southerly facing aspect to maximize the sunlight throughout the day. As the pool faces a picturesque lake your privacy is protected as well as having a fantastic view.

Our vacation home has luxury facilities and equipment throughout including LCD High Definition televisions with cable. The home also boasts automated underwater color-changing lighting which transforms the pool and spa into a luminous night time wonder.

If you're looking for things to do in Orlando then you've come to the right place! With The Ruby Retreat’s central location Universal Studios, Sea World, Kennedy Space Centre, spectacular beaches, and the endless shopping/dining experiences that Florida has to offer, are all close by. If all of the above wasn't enough, you are only minutes to Disney's main gate.

Our home provides an abundance of space and that extra touch of luxury for your well deserved, perfect vacation. Hope to hear from you soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enormous space - large enough for two families, although we were just one family. Location was super for all the amenities. Juli was a very diligent host, and ensured everything went very smoothly for us.

The property was just perfect for our family. We were celebrating our daughters graduation and our son and his family just moved home from living abroad for 2years. It was the perfect place for us to spend time with our family

Thank you very much for making our stay so wonderful. The Holmes Family

I was nervous renting a house for our first family vacation and am so glad I choose this one! The process was so easy and Juli was so nice & always quick to respond. The house had everything we needed to feel at home. The kids swam all day in the pool, enjoyed the toys & Wii system, and loved thes theme rooms. The adults loved all the space, comfy beds, beautiful decorations, & the house being very organized and clean. Thanks again Juli!!

We can't say enough about this house. It's perfect for medium to large families. The entire house was extremely clean, the kitchen was well stocked with the necessary kitchenware, and we had more than enough space for everyone. The kids loved the pool, and any questions we raised were answered quickly by Juli. We would definitely love to stay here again.
