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.

The house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our only suggestion would be to provide toilet paper, garbage bags and paper towels. Other than this, we loved the house and plan to visit again!

Would Stay Here Again

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home is located in a nice neighborhood very near anything you want to visit in the Orlando area (20 minutes from WDW; and just down the road from Medieval Times, which boasts an awesome medieval museum). It is situated on the neighborhood pond, so you can watch wildlife while sitting poolside in your own backyard. The private pool is small, but I love that it is screened in so the bugs are not a problem at all. In fact, we had a family of ducks who visited us daily to eat the bugs off the screen. :)

Decor in the home is really nice - very welcoming. Lots of comfortable seating in the large living room, so the whole family can sit down to enjoy a movie together. And we loved the layout of the home for our family - 2 master bedrooms, and 3 other bedrooms with their own full bathrooms (2 of them shared).

We made many of our own meals, so we appreciated the cooking tools provided in the kitchen. We also had a young toddler with us, so the high chair, stroller, pack-n-play, etc. was sooooo helpful! Thank you!

There were just a few things that would make this 4-rating a 5: The mattresses on the beds were not very supportive - even the kids said something about theirs. And compared to other VRBOs we have stayed in, the house was very sparsely stocked with "niceties." We had to purchase TP, paper towels, kitchen garbage bags, dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, bath soap, hand soap, salt & pepper, and coffee. This is the first time I've had to purchase any of these items when staying in a VRBO (note: "Starter items" are provided - an individual packet of dishwasher soap, 1 kitchen garbage bag, 1 roll of TP in each bathroom, and a tiny bar of face soap). Again, we would stay here again - it was a lovely home, but those missing extras were what kept this from being a 5.

Thank you for a great family vacation!

Spacious, clean, safe neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying at this house. Theme inspired rooms for kids are awesome. Heated pool was perfect. We've enjoyed it day and night. Gated community gives you sens of security. Very close to Disney's parks. Overall I highly recommend it.

Clean, neat, organized and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

House and pool were beautiful with a lot of space for our group of 9! One thought would be for an upgrade to the quality of king mattresses. The rest of the furniture was comfortable! Location was good for our activities and neighborhood was gated and clean. Great communication with property manager too!

Beautiful, large, great for families.

  • 5 of 5

It is a beautiful property in a nice neighborhood. The house and pool are both bigger than they seem in the pictures. It could easily accommodate 10 people! The southern-facing pool area was great, so even though our weather was a little cool, we were able to enjoy the sunshine every day. We did have a problem with the hot tub not heating up, but the management company came out within a couple hours and showed us that there is a timer on the wall that has to be turned on. (I feel this information should be provided somewhere in the house instruction manual-it is not, and there are very clear instructions not to touch any of the pool controls, so we were afraid to try anything on our own. They were very nice about it, but also said other people had problems with the same thing.) We liked that it was away from the hustle and bustle of the resort properties-very quiet! The multitude of ducks and other birds on the lake was very entertaining. This house provided everything we would need for a relaxing stay. We would definitely stay at this property again if we are in the Orlando area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about your issue with the timer. I have just ordered a sign to be placed beside the timer so it is more visible to guests. We will also update the owners manual as it sounds like this information may have disappeared since the last time we checked. I am happy to hear your family enjoyed your stay. We offer a 10% repeat stay discount if you are ever in the area again.

Awesome home with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Home was large enough for our family of 6. Upon arrival everything was in it’s place and user friendly. The enclosed pool and hot tub were awesome and maintenance free. Will stay again. Highly recommended
