About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

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.

Our family of 7 enjoyed this Home! It was the perfect size, very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are accurate, the location is about 30 minutes from Disney parks. We enjoyed our stay and would probably stay again if we return. The only thing I would suggest is it would be nice to have a box of kleenex in each bathroom, an extra roll of toilet paper to start, and an extra garbage bag or 2, and a starting supply of dishwasher detergent. Not fun to arrive late and not have the essentials, but otherwise everything was great.

Owner's Response: A starter supply is normally provided to get you through the first day or two. As the home is self catering, extra supplies are not supplied. I will speak with housekeeping to find out why the starter supplies were not there for your arrival as that is not acceptable. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! Thank you again for choosing to stay at The Ruby Retreat. We would be delighted to have you stay with us again in the future. As a thankyou, we offer a 10% discount on repeat stays.

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Plenty of space. Very clean and well-kept. Nicely decorated. My only recommendation would be a couple of the beds probably need new mattresses. Pool and spa were very nice. It would have been nice to have a couple of lounge chairs by the pool. However, the large table and chairs were very accommodating. I would recommend this home. I definitely would stay here again. Thank you Juli!

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to thank the owner of this beautiful home for giving our family a stress free vacation. This property is beautiful and in a great location. We had everything we needed during our stay and this home's size very comfortably slept our party of 10. The lake view gave us a lot of wonderful wildlife to view. This home is wonderfully decorated and we loved having 4 bathrooms. The owner has superior response time to anything we inquired about during the booking process as well as during check in.I would recommend this home to anyone looking to book a great Florida vacation rental

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

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
