About andrew greenstein

The Great Escape Lakeside is just one of 3 mega estates.

I created The Ever After Estate for my own family in 2003. We love to travel and are away from home as much as 130-140 nights per year so, late in 2009, I began renting it out during our travels.

Renting Ever After became so successful... It was on HGTV's "Most Outrageous Homes In America..." and I couldn't accommodate everyone who wanted to rent it sooooo we created The Sweet Escape -- a candy themed mansion w. an ice cream pool (hot tub is the 'cherry on top') to have one we could rent out full-time. Sweet Escape was also heavily noticed by national & international media--and became popular quickly.

Our family had always tossed around the idea of creating a game-themed estate home--filled with luxury and over-the-top fun. Our kids were approaching their tween & teen years and I wanted them to witness (and participate in....) how a dream can be taken from mere concept--to tangible reality. So early in 2015-- we set out to make The Great Escape Lakeside possible.. We broke ground in June of that same year..and opened for business in early March of 2016. We've been booked almost non-stop ever since...

andrew greenstein purchased this house in 2015

Why andrew greenstein chose Clermont

It's the greatest of our 3 properties and absolutely the best property in Florida--and, quite possibly, in the world (said modestly!!)...

Aside from being a gorgeous 13 bedroom lakefront estate on 10 privately gated acres, it has its own $23,000+ commercial LASER MAZE. It has a REAL, commercial grade ESCAPE ROOM GAME. It has a commercial level high speed waterslide, lazy river, and kiddy pool! There's human bowling, human foosball, soccer billiards, giant connect 4, and so much more-- I'm barely scratching the surface! You won't find a rental like this ANYWHERE else...

This place is AMAZING!! We booked it for a family reunion/Christmas party and had family travel from all over the country. The home was large enough to comfortably have everyone in one location but we never felt cramped. From my grandmother who is 85 to my nephew who is 2 everyone had an unforgettable time! This was the first time is 20 years we had everyone together and now we can't wait to do it again!! From the initial correspondence to check out Andrew and his staff were amazing! My only regret is we didn't stay longer!

Clermont is the most naturally beautiful part of the greater Orlando/Disney area. It's the only part of peninsular Florida with rolling hills (and even a small mountain)-- plus it has its own chain of 13 interconnected freshwater lakes for boating, fishing, and even waterfront restaurants. Clermont has a small town feel but with all of the convenience of modern suburbs.
