“Wonderful vacation at The Retreat”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

We greatly enjoyed our vacation at The Retreat. The house itself is beautiful and well equipped and feels very tranquil and safe. The location was excellent for visiting both Disney and Universal and there was a wide range of stores and restaurants a few minutes drive away. We especially enjoyed the pool and deck area, which overlooked the lake, and the spectacular Disney fireworks show we could see from there every evening. The children also enjoyed fishing from the dock! I would definitely rent the house again if we return!

Rosalyn,

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at 'The Retreat' and thank you for taking time to leave such a positive review.

The communal fishing dock located a short walk from 'The Retreat' is a great way to spend time relaxing fishing the beautiful Sunset Lake, we hope the children caught lots of big fish.

We hope to see you back at 'The Retreat' soon.

Lovely home, rented 3 times previously with different owner..Brian very nice to work with. It was myself, husband and two 22 yr old sons. They caught and released 38 bass. Would like to have had Leftover supplies from prevoius renters...so you do need to buy e everything. (FOIL, BAGGIES, DISH SOAP)...house was clean and ready for 2 hr early check in... thanks brian!
Close to stores and parks...we did sea world and universal. Just wicked traffic on I-4. Donated fishing lures,books and rafts for pool for the next guests.

Julie,

Thank you for coming back to 'The Retreat', return visitors are always a huge compliment to us as it means 'The Retreat' must be doing something right.

Our fantastic cleaning team thoroughly go through 'The Retreat' prior to new guests arriving to ensure everything is to the high standard expected. We provide a few essential items to help visitors settle in but do advise a shop at one of the many local grocery stores to ensure 'The Retreat' is stocked with all the essentials and goodies you desire.

Wow, what a HUGE fish. 'The Retreat' provides fishing rods and lures for our guests to use and fishing from directly behind 'The Retreat' or from the nearby dock into the beautiful Sunset Lake is highly recommended as you unwind after a fun day in Orlando, fishing into this well stocked lake is reserved exclusively for guests and residents of the Sunset Lake community.

We look forward seeing you and your family back at 'The Retreat' real soon.

What a wonderful home that had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of bath and pool towels. All the dishes one would need in the kitchen area. Clean and well maintained. We traveled with 3 young children and went with another couple that had 2 young children as well. There was plenty of space for all of us and something for everyone to do. The view of the fireworks at night while we would swim was great. Thank you for such a relaxing holiday, it was everything you said it would be and more!

The Disney fireworks provide a spectacular backdrop to an evening swim at 'The Retreat' and never fail to to amaze.

“large, clean, quiet, secure”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

My review echoes much of what has already been said. Large, clean villa in a secure gated community – very relaxing! View of the Lake is amazing (right outside the rear garden/pool area).
View of Disney fireworks on the horizon looking out from the pool area. My stay in September was very quiet; didn’t see many other people in the street or neighbourhood.
The air con worked perfectly and did the job. The villa had everything the 2 of needed, enough clean towels, cutlery, kitchen utensils etc. (although no pizza cutter  ). Washing machine, tumble dryer, iron+board
It was nice having all this space for the 2 of us but would easily accommodate to families (with their children)
If I had to be picky the mattress on both the double beds were quite noisy/uncomfortable (in my opinion) but others may find them fine.
Brian did well in keeping up with communications up to the my holiday.
The villa is about a 10 minute drive to the 192 ( I wouldn’t recommend staying here without a car).
My only regret is not staying here longer!

Late review. The retreat is the perfect description a wonderful home to return to after a busy day at the parks. Everything thought of .All parks within easy access. We enjoyed the outdoor bbq area great to relax watching the lake. The sunrise was fantastic. The boys had fun in the pool . The layout worked well for 3 generations as we all had some of our own space.Great memories.

We had a fantastic time at the Retreat. There are so many rentals to choose from but the has to be one of the best that you will find for the price and location. The view is excellent and you can watch the fireworks every night with a cold beer.

Thank you for a great holiday.

We have just returned home from 2 weeks on Florida our first week was spent at the retreat, it was absolutely brilliant we couldn't have had a better base to stay, the villa had everything we needed and more , everything has been thought of in this home to ensure a home from home experience. It was a real treat to relax at the end of a hectic day and relax at the pool, the views were just stunning, and the sunrise beautiful over the lake! Our two boys just loved this home and especially the pool, they had such good fun splashing around and not to mention the games room which was just great if only we had more time to use it more but not enough hours in the day!!. The neighbour hood is lovely , we all felt safe and secure in this lovely home, I am already thinking of returning and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else , it is quite expensive but you get what you pay for as the saying goes, book this property uP! Brian was easy to contact and very helpful and full instructions were left in villa and emailed to us which ensured everything went smoothly on arrival and throughout our sta, Thankyou and we hope to return soon.
