Great 6 bedroom/6 bathroom house in quiet location at The Retreat in Champions Gate.

  • 5 of 5

Good communication with the owner Nina Matthew throughout the booking and during our stay. House great with plenty of room and well furnished. Everything you could need in the house. Pool and hot jacuzzi facing out onto green at back so not back to back with neighbours. Quiet location on the edge of Champions Gate estate. Garage converted into games room with football, pool, and air hockey games available. 2 lounges on 2 floors and 2 dining areas together with outside dining facilities. TV in all bedrooms and lounges. Had problem with no cable connection when arrived for 2 lounge TVs but quickly remedied when phoned maintenance. 2 English ladies quickly got it sorted. We didnt get to use the Club House as too busy visiting theme parks but looked very good. House within 30 minutes of all theme parks and has shops and restaurants close by. Enjoyable holiday had by all.

Fantastic Villa in a great location, great facilities too.

  • 5 of 5

We were two families, totaling 9 (4 adults & 5 children), the villa was superbly clean upon arrival. We found the villa with no issues and the information supplied before hand allowed seamless entry to the property.

The villa is about 35 minutes from the airport which is great when you just want to drop everything and jump in the pool.

Speaking of the pool, it was just the right size for all of the kids plus a few adults. The pool heat was needed a couple of days but we had great weather while there so that helped. I would recommend using the pool cover to keep the heat to allow early morning use of the pool.

Inside the property the downstairs was expansive and open plan. We needed for nothing in terms of cooking apparatus, and whether we wanted to cook for ourselves our tuck into a takeaway everything was at hand.

The bedrooms were spacious and "comfy" (my 8 year old's description), the bathrooms were clean and luxurious. In particular the downstairs bathroom and shower was great for post swim clean ups.

The Oasis Clubhouse is a great alternative to a day in the parks, great value as this in included in your rental, it was very relaxing and has great facilities.

The parks are never far away, we managed to get to Universal, Seaworld, Discovery Cove, Aquatic all with in 30 mins. Busch Gardens was also a great trip but is over an hours drive away.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Champions Gate to anyone (We stayed at Champions Gate two years ago too), and in particular this wonderful villa.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and we loved the pool, hot tub and game room.

Very easy drive to stores and restaurants. Also only a 15 minute drive to Disney parks.

The place was very quiet until Friday the 3rd when group of about 15-20 cheerleaders arrived next door. Upon arriving back from the beach at around 2pm we found them sitting in the driveway and practicing right in front of our rental. Couldn't figure out why they weren't at least in their own yard. At around 6am Sat we could hear them talking and slamming car doors on the way to their competition. Otherwise the stay was very quiet.

We also found sheets in the dryer that we folded and put on top of the dryer. The cover to the alarm is very loose which made it difficult to enter the code and so the alarm went off.

Even with the few issues we enjoyed our stay and would love to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary-Kay Thank you for your review. We appreciate your kind words. Unfortunately, as an owner, I have no control over other rental homes (not owned by me) and who they are rented to. Thank you for bringing the alarm cover to our attention. We will get this fixed immediately. I look forward to having you stay again soon. Kind regards Nina

Amazing home with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here and absolutely loved our stay at this house. The location was perfect as it was very quiet and private but close enough to all the parks, shopping, restaurants and grocery store. The clubhouse was very nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The large pool area, slide and lazy river were perfect for a day off from the parks. We wish we spent more time there.

The house was perfect and very clean. There were only 4 adults and 2 children with our group so the house was plenty big. My kids loved the children's bedrooms one with the bunk beds and the other with the twin beds. They also loved relaxing in the large living room on the second floor when needing a break from all the activity and just watch some tv. The games room in the garage was also a hit and they loved the air hockey table. The wi-fi in the house worked perfectly as we all had smartphones and iPads and we never had a problem with the internet.

The adults loved how big all the bedrooms were and all the living space. Six bathrooms were also very helpful. The kitchen was very large and had everything we needed. We made coffee every morning and cooked a full breakfast before starting our day at the parks. Then we came home and cooked a nice meal and we always had everything we needed.

Finally the pool and hot tub were amazing. We all loved the pool and the hot tub was perfect after those long days at Disney. Pool and hot tub heat was necessary as the temperatures were a little cool in the evenings during our stay. Also very private as there were no homes behind us. We rented a BBQ as well and we used it for about four meals while we were there.

In closing, we loved our stay at Nina's house. She provided all the information we required and we never had any problems during our stay that we needed to contact anyone. I would highly recommend this house to anyone and we look forward to coming back again very soon.

Thank you Nina!!

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

My family, a group of 10 adults and 2 infants, had an amazing time at this home. Everything about it was great. The community clubhouse was grand and had everything to want to keep you fron leaving the property. The homes private pool (we paid for it to be heated..WELL WORTH IT) and jacazui was just what the foot doctor ordered after a long day of hiking thru disnew parks. Every single room in the house was great in size and furnished in such a way that my wife and her cousins absolutely loved, especially the grand dining room. The main master bedroom and bath was massive. I also feel the need that I need to commend the home owner, Nina. Every time I had a question, she would respond within a few mins of my submission. My only gripe is that if you're using Homeaway to book the stay, know that under the checkout instructions the property mgmt company only talks about the checkout being at 10 AM. When you arrive at the home they have a binder with numerous instructions regarding the washing of all plates and towels. We're use to this being already done since it's usually included in a standard cleaning fee. Nevertheless, that slight hiccup wasn't enough of an issue for me to rate this home anything less than a 5. I hope it's available for our next family trip to disney because everyone in my group agreed they want to come back to this home.

A perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at a few houses in the Champions Gate area and this house ranks near the top. The layout is very nice and you can tell things are well taken care of.

There was plenty of space for group gatherings or quiet time away. And my kids really enjoyed the game room. I even think the management company is better than some of the others I’ve dealt with in the past. They were quick to reply and very helpful.

The location of this house is a short walk to the Oasis Club community area/pool and it’s near a rear entrance/exit gate to Champions Gate, which is close to a Starbucks and Target. We’ll definitely consider this house again for future trips to the Orlando area.
