1. How Can We Sleep Up To 52 People At A 10 Bedroom Estate?

Many families do it all the time! The 10 bedrooms have beds for 24 people (assuming double occupancy in the King & Queen beds)... We also have 14 twin rollaways and 4 queen sleeper sofas...adding room for 22 more sleepers. The rest either use couches, their own sleeping bags (plenty of space), and many teens/tweens LOVE to use the fully reclining theater seats -- so they can kickback under blankets & pillows--watching movies and playing video games on the giant screen until the wee hours! Babies, of course, use our pack-n-play cribs (or their own!)

2. Do You Allow Weddings/Events On Site?

Only small ones with 65 or fewer guests. If you're planning a larger event, check out our other mega estates: The Great Escape Lakeside (property # 4109211) and The Ever After Estate (property # 281061).

3. It Says You Have A 3 Night Minimum But Can I Please Book Only 2 Nights? (or just 1 Night!)

You can book 1 night or 2 nights only when we have a 1 or 2 night GAP in our calendar. For example, if one guest is checking out on Thursday and another guest is checking in on Saturday, then we'll allow you to book THAT Thursday-Saturday by special request. In all other circumstances, you would have to book a minimum of 3 nights. Please note that while you may only NEED 2 nights, booking/paying for 3 nights--has its advantages! For example, you can stay as late as you want on that last/extra day (or arrive as early as you want on the first day--depending on which day you make to be the "extra" one!)

4. What's The Price?

The rates posted on Homeaway are completely accurate! Click "RATES," enter your dates, and then click VIEW DETAILS under the nightly rate in the upper right corner. Alternatively, you can also use the RATE CALCULATOR on The Sweet Escape's website.

Nightly rates are $995-1445/night. (Higher during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Xmas/New Year's). Departure cleaning is $888 and taxes are 11%

5. Are The Rates Negotiable?

Sorry, no. However, you'll definitely find it more cost effective to sleep 15-52 people at Sweet Escape than you would to sleep the same number of people at any decent area hotel --especially when you factor in all of the incredible amenities at Sweet Escape!

6. Do You Allow Pets?

On a case-by-case basis, we allow hypoallergenic, potty-trained dogs for a rate of $25/day.

About Andrew Greenstein

There is NOTHING like The Sweet Escape.

Look carefully at the photos of other luxury homes and you will see soul-less marble museums that will make you say 'wow, nice' for 2 moments and your children will be bored. You will not remember much about the other homes, only the rest of your vacation.

In contrast, Sweet Escape IS* a vacation spot.

You will be talking about it for YEARS to come.

There is a DISCOTHEQUE inside with family karaoke.

There are MULTIPLE video game arcades--not just a room with 2 game tables like the other homes have. REAL commercial video game machines AND pinball AND juke boxes AND prize redemption machines and MORE..

There is a MOVIE THEATER by the pool AS WELL AS a movie theater indoors.

There are 5 acres of privacy, sports courts, your own mini golf course..

There is a HUGE ice cream cone pool. The hot tub is a cherry on top. There's a water SPLASH park.. There's a giant Hershey bottle shooting water onto a chocolate slide that comes down from 'sugar high mountain..'

There's a laser tag room, a massage room, a romantic boardwalk/carnival room-- and SO MUCH MORE...

Andrew Greenstein purchased this estate in 2011

Why Andrew Greenstein chose Clermont Area

It's close enough to all of the attractions yet far enough to afford lots of private acreage and a sense of retreat. It is surrounded by gorgeous lakes and Florida's only rolling hills---even a small mountain named SUGAR*LOAF-- how appropriate!

What makes this estate unique

A swimming pool 2.5X larger than most vacation rental homes.

A splash park


An elaborate video game arcade.

Mini golf.

Sports courts.


Laser tag.

2 enormous kitchens...

and more...

Breath Taking!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the entire group was spechlees and breathless. The pictures and the videos didn't do this location any justice. The Sweat Escape is AMAZING from the beginning to the end. There wasn't a dull moment in the this house, and no one slept a wink. Let me tell you don't waste your time going to the theme parks because you will be entertained at this beauty. Andrew G the owner is amazing and his staff members are very processional and attentive. My family has already booked his newest location The Great Escape Lakeside. So if your looking for a great time at an affordable cost with professional and courteous staff please contact Andrew. If you're the family planner like myself your family and friends will be glad you did. We are looking forward to seeing The Great Escape Lakeside. Thank you Andrew for creating this amazing atmosphere that the entire family can enjoy while being comfortable.

We had a pretty large group. A group of 25 Adults and 12 Kids. I would never stay in a hotel again after being here for 3 nights with family. We literally only left the property to grocery shop. So much extra linen available blankets, towels, sheets, roll aways. One night we all just laid in the Disco room and slept there. Everywhere you go there is something that you can do. It's almost like Disney World you need a good week to enjoy it all. Ginger was our tour guide and she was beyond helpful. The receiver wasn't working in the theatre when we arrived but she made sure a new one was brought in right in time for the NBA GAME 4 FINAL. Andrew is extremely helpful and very prompt with his responses. The kids loved everything about it. It's very kid friendly, and the pool is kid friendly as well. Guys just book this home you will not have a worry in the world I promise you.

Great property for big groups!

  • 5 of 5

We were also part of othe group of 12 adults and 16 kids. There was more than enough room for everyone, and the house was well-equipped with everything needed. Owner was attentive to all questions and concerns, and bent over backwards to make sure everything was as it should be. The house was full of entertainment--so much that we rarely left the property and never got bored. The kids were in heaven, the adults were equally happy, and all well. Some of our group didn't realize there was a main big house with 6 bedrooms, and the other 4 bedrooms were in the guest house down the driveway about 50 yards or so. That turned out to be great due to wanting a retreat from the noise of the big house and the arcade games, etc. Overall, it's hard to imagine having a much better experience with such a large group--it was ideal!

Sweet Escapes was a perfect place for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 adults and 16 kids, and there were so many beds we never even used. This place CAN really sleep up to 52 comfortably. I personally liked having a guest house separately from the main house, because I have young children and could put them to bed at the guest house and not have to worry about the night owls waking them up. (And we used WiFi video monitors to check on the kids while we went back to the main house.) The kids loved all of the activities, especially the free video games. The ball pit room and laser tag room were also big hits. The owner responded immediately to any questions or problems we had, and resolved any issues within the day. I would recommend this to property to any large group looking for a place to vacation.

I don't believe I could write a review that does this property justice. First of all, Andrew and his staff are the kindest most professional people I have ever dealt with. Every need was taken care of and every question answered without making me feel like a burden. We had a group large group of about 40 for my son's 12th birthday. This place brought all the magic kids and adults alike need to make memories last a lifetime. No one complained. I plan all of our family trips and there is always at least one, but not this time. My two aunts signed on at the last minute and had to sleep in the lollipop room; even they said the beds were the most comfortable they'd ever felt. Andrew has a true knack for comfort. Every bed, sofa, and chair in the house felt great! We had so much fun that my family has decided we will NEVER do a hotel or resort again. We felt so at home that we have to come back. It's a must. I never imagined the house would look even better than the pictures, but it actually did. Andrew outdid himself with the Sweet Escape and my family is truly grateful that we had the opportunity to experience such a magnificent property.

best vacation home EVER

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far the best experience my family and I ever had. Everything was perfect , the rooms , space , and pool. All my kids enjoyed it especially the adults. The rooms were breath taking! I didn't get a single complaint from my picky kids. I would most definitely recommend this house to any family who is looking for the time of their life. Great customer service, especially the owner. Till this day My Family Hasn't Stopped Talking about How Wonderful This Home was.

Car: necessary

This gorgeous 10 bedroom, 5 acre property is located just north of Clermont - Disney World's main suburb! It's the only part of Florida with rolling hills---some of the most gorgeous scenery around. There are plenty of malls, restaurants, and other attractions nearby (movies, bowling, laser tag, arcades, playgrounds, kids' play places, and more!)..There's also plenty of historic downtown areas, landmarks like the Citrus Tower, Lake Ridge Winery, etc;
