About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

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.

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

Our family of 7 enjoyed this Home! It was the perfect size, very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are accurate, the location is about 30 minutes from Disney parks. We enjoyed our stay and would probably stay again if we return. The only thing I would suggest is it would be nice to have a box of kleenex in each bathroom, an extra roll of toilet paper to start, and an extra garbage bag or 2, and a starting supply of dishwasher detergent. Not fun to arrive late and not have the essentials, but otherwise everything was great.

Owner's Response: A starter supply is normally provided to get you through the first day or two. As the home is self catering, extra supplies are not supplied. I will speak with housekeeping to find out why the starter supplies were not there for your arrival as that is not acceptable. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! Thank you again for choosing to stay at The Ruby Retreat. We would be delighted to have you stay with us again in the future. As a thankyou, we offer a 10% discount on repeat stays.

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Plenty of space. Very clean and well-kept. Nicely decorated. My only recommendation would be a couple of the beds probably need new mattresses. Pool and spa were very nice. It would have been nice to have a couple of lounge chairs by the pool. However, the large table and chairs were very accommodating. I would recommend this home. I definitely would stay here again. Thank you Juli!
