***ANSWERS TO SOME OF THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS***
1. How do 45 People Fit In 12 Bedrooms at The Ever After Estate?!?!
Each bedroom has either a King bed, a Queen bed, or two twin bunks. Therefore, the 12 main bedrooms sleep 24 guests. Additionally, the Estate has 14 twin rollaway beds and two full sleeper sofas--which, combined, sleep another 18 guests. The remaining guests are either babies using our pack-n-play cribs OR adults/kids using their own sleeping bags, our couches, their own tents for camping... OR, most commonly: Teens/young adults using the fully-reclining luxury seats of our movie theater--which include blankets & pillows! (They tend to fall asleep in there after playing video games & watching movies on the giant screen until the wee hours!!!)
2. Can I Have A Wedding (or other large-scale event) On Site?
Absolutely! Look up "The Ever After Estate" and find our main website. There's an entire section on their devoted to information on having your wedding at the estate...along with photos from past events.
3. It Says You Have A 3 Night Minimum...but..I only need 1 or 2 nights...
Sorry, the minimum is in place for good reason BUT... If* we have a 1-2 night GAP in our calendar, then you can certainly fill THAT slot by special request! Say, for example, we have a guest scheduled to check out on a Wednesday and the next guest isn't checking in until that Friday. THEN, you could fill that 2 night Wednesday-Friday gap if you want to! Otherwise, just go ahead and book 3 nights-- You may choose not to sleepover the 3rd night--but at least you'll be able to stay on site as long as you want that last day---checking out late--- since you will have technically booked the Estate through the following morning!
4. How Much Does It Cost To Rent The Ever After Estate?
Most of the year, it's $1895-$2135/night. Departure cleaning is $888 and taxes are 11%. For exact prices, click the RATES button Homeaway and then enter your dates. In the upper right corner, there will be an "average nightly" rate displayed with a "VIEW DETAILS" link right below it. Alternatively, you can use the easy RATE CALCULATOR found on The Ever After Estate's own website.
5. Is It Negotiable?
Not at all, sorry! The Ever After Estate is a very special property. The owner's family only rents it out when they travel (which is 100-140 nights per year!) and they simply don't leave such an incredible home for less. Tremendous work goes into preparing for (and after) each guest and the rates accurately reflect how much the owner's need to recoup to make it fair to all. When you consider that most decent Central Florida hotels are $150-$250 per night (plus parking, fees, etc;) to sleep 2-4 people, surely you'll agree that $1900/night to sleep up to 46 people on your own privately gated 62 acre island is an excellent deal!
My life story is pretty much online!
Andrew Greenstein purchased this estate in 2003
Much of the year, I live at the estate my 2 daughters. When our family travels/vacations [VERY often], we rent it out to people looking for something unique/extra special. The property has a perfect 5 star rating and elsewhere AND we provide SIX star service to all guests throughout their stay.
Acres and acres of GORGEOUS nature for outdoor play !
A theme-park style water slide.
A huge miniature golf course.
Indoor & outdoor movie theaters.
Multiple video game arcades.
The list goes on...and on..
It's like renting your very own private resort !
I came across this property while searching for a place for my family of 19 to stay during a visit to Disney. I knew immediately based on the pictures and description that it would be perfect for all ages (ages 1 - 69). The property was phenomenal! The children spent hours in the ball pit and playing outside on the multiple merry-go-rounds and play area. The whole family was able to play putt-putt, volleyball, basketball and soccer. The pool was beautiful and looked like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, we didn't think about utilizing the pool heat in time. The weather was a bit chilly, and we weren't able to use it. When it got dark outside, we moved inside and played multiple games of air hockey and arcade games, and watched movies in the theater room. We were even able to use the fire pit and make s'mores one evening. My aunt, who loves to cook, couldn't stay out of the chef's kitchen, which was well appointed and stocked with utensils and equipment. There was plenty of space for everyone to be without crowding anyone. We went to Disney, but after a few hours everyone decided they would rather hang out at the house! I can't remember a time when we stayed outside for so many hours.
The home owner Andrew was phenomenal from the inquiry to the check out. He answered every question I had personally and very quickly. He was extremely helpful and very friendly. He went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was a positive experience.
This house is everything the description says it is and so much more. We were able to spend quality time together and make fabulous new memories together. Our family is looking forward to making this an annual tradition and visiting this property and the other fabulous properties that Andrew owns. Don't hesitate to book this home - you will not be sorry!
We stayed at The Ever After Estate for 4 days and nights and it was great! We were traveling with 8 people, including 5 kids ranging in age from 19 to 7. The kids loved playing air hockey, miniature golf, basketball and the board games. They also spent a lot of time in the movie theater, the pool and the outdoor theater. The owners of the house and their staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They helped us arrange for catered dinners including a poolside BBQ, a Mexican food night, steaks and potatoes, and Italian food. They also helped to advise us on places to go locally. The rooms were very nice and the house was very clean and well-stocked with everything we wanted to use during our stay. The location was convenient to Disney and to Universal Studios and it was very nice after a day at the parks to come home and have a large, private place to relax and unwind. We highly recommend The Ever After Estate and hope to check out the sister property soon.
If the Garden of Eden still exists, this place is IT. Weeks after my stay, I'm still saying "WOW" looking at our photos. The Ever After Estate is, as far as I know, completely original-- There's nothing else like it.
We thought the pictures were amazing before we arrived...but the photos simply don't do the place justice. This not just a vacation home-- It was like having our own mini resort of even theme park.
The water slide was INCREDIBLE-- just as good as any major water park's--but-- since it was in "our" backyard-- we had unlimited, private access.. The pool was amazing-- I definitely recommend sitting under the waterfalls and letting the water massage your shoulders! Outdoor billiards? A HUGE hit---but not as big of a hit as OUTDOOR movies poolside under the stars-- One night--we watched almost 3 complete movies outside back-to-back...(The estate had a collection of about a thousand movies!)... The main kitchen was huge and fully stocked but we spent a good portion of our time using the outdoor summer kitchen & grill...
One day we had mini golf contests-- Other days, the men fished--and the rest of us played volleyball, horseshoes, tetherball, soccer, bean bag toss--and some of the other games set up around the property.. The little kids--especially the little princesses LOVED the carousel horses.. There were over 30 of us and we never felt crammed in at all--- It was fun just to look at all of the hidden art, themes, unusual decor....and.. oh my, what else? Well, the teen boys in our group were often lost playing video games on the huge movie theater screen while others played skeeball and splashed down the INDOOR slide into the ballpit room..
The scenery was incredible.. I loved the tall sand hill cranes...and we even saw a large turtle during our stay--but... what made it extra special---and worth going back to more than anything-----was the careful attention we received from Andrew-- the place is his like "child"---but he let us have it to ourselves--yet--he was always a text message away if we had any questions or needed any help-- His level of service and his attention to detail were better than anything I've experienced in a hotel--and WAY better than anything in any other vacation home-- Then again, The Ever After Estate is far more than just a home.
We'll be back.
Regardless of what brings you to Orlando, the Ever After Estate will send you home with fond memories. From the first contact the owner, Andrew, was professional, timely, and accesible. In much the same way, the estate is professional from the quality of decoration to the attention to maintenance, there is little expense spared. The estate is timely, as activities from Horseshoes, to full court basketball, to pinball machines and water slides appeal to the broadest range of ages. Accesibility has also been given consideration as each pinball machine had a stepping stool by it, so even smaller children could play. As mentioned in other reviews, our group too elected not to return to a theme park on one of the days of our trip, but instead stay at The Ever After Estate and enjoy the activities. Thanks Andrew!
Our impression of the estate began before we even arrived. We emailed the owner several times and he was always responsive and eager to answer all of our questions. Upon arrival, the estate wowed us. The pictures do not do it justice. The owner met us and gave us the full tour, leaving nothing out. Everything was immaculate. It was clean, neat and everything worked properly. It was totally private and quiet but not isolated as there were restaurants and supermarkets nearby. A short trip down the road and you're at all the major theme parks.
The landscaping was well tended and beautiful. The pool and hottub were perfect for having fun or you could relax on any one of the many hammocks around under the mature trees. If you wanted to have some fun, the mini golf is terrific and the games were endless. Plenty of opportunity for kids to have fun but if you're an adult group, there are plenty of things to do as well.
The owner texted us during our stay to make sure everything was in order, which it was, but he did not intrude. We knew he was only a phone call away if we needed anything.
The kitchen was well equipped to cook anything from a snack to dinner for a large party. Every room was well appointed and comfortable.
This is truly a wonderland to which we will return again!! We highly recommend this property to anyone! You will not be disappointed!!

We had a very large reunion at Everafter. Andrew and his team were great at responding to my questions and concerns before and during our stay. The house is better than the pictures. We spent 5 days at the house without leaving and never got bored. Very clean and beautiful! Awesome rental!
The Ever After Estate is LARGER than Disney's Magic Kingdom.
We have over 62 acres, Magic Kingdom is barely 45 acres.
Every other home in the Orlando area is 'just' a home surrounded by neighbors you can practically reach by sticking your arm out of a window!
Ever After is a unique, celebrity-level private ISLAND surrounded by gorgeous marshlands. Children ages 2-18 report that they do not even want to leave Ever After to go the theme parks!
We have a WATER PARK LEVEL 2 story commercial enclosed water speed slide. We have our own 14 hole themed commercial-grade miniature golf/put-put course. We have THREE VIDEO GAME ARCADES. We have a state-of-the-art theater with a 126'+ screen AND another theater poolside. We have indoor rock climbing. We have a room with 23,000+ colorful air-filled balls and a speed slide into them. We have 2 1/2 kitchens, hot tubs, a gym, multiple playgrounds, sports courts and more. Visit our full website as it simply doesn't all fit on Homeaway!
