The Retreat Villa - Exclusive Gated Community

Bedrooms 7
Space 3,400 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

7 Bedroom & 5 full bathrooms, Sleeps 18-20

The Retreat has been furnished and planned to provide a superior vacation home for families, reunions or people planning to marry in the Sunshine State - just pack your clothes and go!

From the 40ft 20ft pool with its extended deck, spa and separate character shaped paddling pool, to high quality furnishing, home entertainment systems and games room-there is something for everyone.

The Retreat has Four King Bedrooms, One bedroom with 2 Queen size beds, One bedroom with 2 Full (Double) size beds and 1 bedroom with 4 Twin sized beds (2 sets of bunk beds) - sleeping 18-20 altogether. We have avoided 'theming' the villa so that kids of all ages can enjoy.

The DVD library has kids and grown-up films. There are toys and board games for the kids, a PS4 and Xbox with games and an air hockey table in the games room.

Stayed here from 14 October for two weeks

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding accommodation. It was truly a home away from home. Even though we were a large group there was enough room so that we felt we were not under each other’s feet. The rooms were large, spacious and well presented. The kitchen was well equipped with high end appliances. Any issues - not that they were many, was dealt with quickly and efficiently.

I would certainly stay here again.

Amazing holiday made perfect with the perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is truly breathtaking! From the moment you walk in every room is even better than shown in the pictures. The villa is so central to all your usual attractions and so many restaurants and just a short drive from International Drive. Starting with the villa... it’s modern, massive and has just about everything you’ll need for your stay. We had a great time with 13 of us there it wasn’t cramped at all and we had more than enough space when we were all home. The kitchen accommodated all of us and plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen is equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly think of utensils, pots, trays bowls- you name it it’s there!

Spent lots of nights in the games room and enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi! The rooms themselves were spacious and well presented and clean. They have put a lot of effort into accommodating us and our party had a fantastic time. Pauline was available to answer all of our questions and gave us plenty of information to settle us into the villa.

We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting a modern, luxury, high quality place to stay for your Florida holiday. We will be coming back again and again!! Looking forward to the next trip!!

The property was amazing, lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a good idea for my family. I'm looking forward to planning another vacation just to spend the whole time in the house relaxing. I hope we left everything in order. I had to leave before the rest of my family but I gave them the instructions on what needed to be done. The children enjoyed the pool and I sat in the jacuzzi which is something I normally don't do. It was very relaxing.

The house was spacious and elaborately decorated.

  • 4 of 5

The eleven member family was quite satisfied with their accommodations. All the amenities were in place for our convenience. We saw just a couple of things to be attended to. Attention to front walkway was overlooked and front twin bedroom floor was dirty behind lamp table. Needless to say, you had efficient staff there to right any issues that surfaced. Thank you again for an enjoyable vacation. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.

The property was absolutely gorgeous and very well-maintained.

  • 5 of 5

The home was impeccably decorated, spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, dishes, pots, pans and everything the family needed. We enjoyed the pools and spa each day. The furniture was comfortable and of excellent quality. We had all of the comforts of home and more. This was really a dream come true! We plan to return next year and hope to make coming to this home for a week an annual tradition. I highly recommend this property, the owner and the property manager. They are all awesome!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to send this because I don't want to let people know about this amazing property. We stayed there for 5 days and it is close to Disney which is great but when you are there it really feels like home. The beds and pillows weren't that great but I am particular about my pillow, which is why I brought my own. That being said, the house was clean, comfortable and actually made us skip a day at the parks. We wanted to spend more time together as a family in the heated pool. It has plenty of rooms and common living space to allow everyone enough space to be comfortable and not cramped. Grocery stores, target, Buffalo Wild Wings and Giordano's Pizza are all less than 5 minutes away. Really great place! I am already planning the next one. Also, the owner was really great and pleasant to work with. In addition to her being great, I met the new property management company representative when we were packing up and they were really great too. I know they are new to managing this property but they were first class!

My favorite things about the stay: Pool, higher end appliances, the size of rooms and space, location, location, location.

My least favorite things: bedding, pool door alarm (a necessity though), one living room (kids ruled the main area). All of these are least important to me as well so this could have been blank.

On a scale from 1 to 10 I give this property a 9.5. I can't wait to stay there again this summer.

Thank you again for allowing us into your home!
