About the area

Central Florida has it all, and ChampionsGate is the hub. Disney Parks - The Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom may be what you think of, but do you know about their water parks - Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach? The ESPN Wide World of Sports is the spring home of the Atlanta Braves and bustling with high school and college sports all year 'round. Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld, LEGOLAND, and Busch Gardens - Tampa round out the Theme Parks. Want a beach? Atlantic beaches and the famous Ron Jon Surf shop are only an hour east in Cocoa Beach. Visit the Kennedy Space Center while you're there. Head west an hour to the gulf beaches of Tampa and St Petersburg. Looking for local fun? Try the Florida Strawberry Festival in mid February in Plant City, Florida. Disney has it's own festivals like the Epcot Flower and Garden Show in March, and the Food and Wine Festival in October. There's always something to do and more to come. Oasis WaterPark and Community Center. This included amenity includes two pools, a lazy river, waterslide, hot tubs, sand volleyball courts, bar, restaurant, children's activities, movie theater, fitness center, and planned activities. The Grill at the Oasis. Chili's - 2 miles

“Annual Family Gathering”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

Each year we treat our children, their spouses (9), and our grandchildren (11) to a family gathering. This year we took the entire crew to Disney World and were fortunate to spend our week at the "Magical Retreat". From the time we walked in to this place we knew we had made the right choice. This is one gorgeous house, had a whole lot to do, had plenty of space for us all, and could accommodate our entire crew with things to do when not at the parks. And we were only five minutes from the park entrance. Our grandchildren range in age from 2 months to 16 years and let me tell you - this house kept them all busy. If you are looking for house to stay...........You cannot go wrong with "Magical Retreat". Give them a try. You and your group will be impressed.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the good review! We are glad that you enjoyed the room and amenities our our home and hope you will come back again soon!

This home far exceeded our expectations. It was new, had plenty of comfortable space, was spotlessly clean and a perfect place to relax. I have a hard time picking my favorite part of the home. The roomy bedrooms had very comfortable beds and plenty of drawer and closet space. The bathrooms were spacious and had more storage space. The large living area downstairs had ample room and a large TV- a great place to hang out after dinner. Speaking of dinner, the adjacent kitchen was absolutely huge and equipped with everything you need for the week's breakfasts, lunches and/or dinners. With several stools at the bar and a large dining room table, there was plenty of room and options for people to eat. That doesn't even account for the poolside tables right out the back door! That's right, seating for 12 on the lanai by the large, heated pool and hot tub. We really enjoyed swimming during the day and at night in our own private pool. If you're looking for a vacation destination, this place really has it all. The first floor game room with a pool table, air hockey, foosball and a couch and TV. The send floor common area has a large card table and another TV. But I think my favorite was the theatre room with 70" screen, eight recliners and a popcorn machine! What a blast! Everything about this home was ideal for our family. The interior design work was absolutely beautiful, and the subtle Disney touches in each room were a nice touch- See if you can find them all! I also appreciated the home being on a corner lot, providing quiet and more privacy than most of the other homes in the gorgeous subdivision. With all this home has to offer, you really don't need to go anywhere. But, when we wanted to venture out, we had access to the complex's Oasis water park, and Disney is a very close to drive. 30 minutes after getting to the home, we were already dreading the thought of leaving. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back. We highly, highly recommend it.

Owner's reply: Thanks Paul, for your input. We know that feeling of wanting to go back>

“A little piece of heaven”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2015

Had a great stay with multiple families here. The amenities are endless. Was upset we checked out the clubhouse on our last day because it was amazing! The view from the back of the house/ pool area was awesome. You can see the fireworks from Magic Kingdom if you look hard enough. Plus you can see many hot air balloons taking off in the morning which was beautiful. They are rapidly building houses, so I'm sure the view won't last. If your driving to Disney Wotld from here, it's only 20 short minutes away. Again, we enjoyed our stay and will definetly consider this rented again in the future!

Owner's reply: Thank you John. You will have to come back soon and enjoy the Oasis. - G

“A Relaxing Girls Weekend”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

I spent Memorial Day weekend with two of my friends at this gorgeous vacation villa. I felt pampered the whole weekend. We each had our own bedroom with a private attached bath. The sheets and pillows on the beds were the softest ever and I hardly wanted to get up in the morning . We relaxed and swan in the private pool,and watched movies in the luxurious theatre room complete with homemade popcorn from the inroom popcorn machine. A pool table, air hockey table and foose ball tables were also available for our use in the game room. The nearby Oasis Club House is now finished and we enjoyed a delightful Sunday brunch there. There is also a fitness room and three pools there available for our use but we chose to lie quietly by our own private pool instead. My goal on this trip was just to spend time with friends and relax and veg and this villa provided the perfect setting to do that.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Reviewed December 3, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have stayed at many vacation homes in the Orlando area and this property was exceptional in all aspects. There are amenities throughout the house that will appeal to family members of all ages. The media room theater seating and large screen tv made viewing our blue-ray dvds a pleasure to watch. There is a game table in the 2nd floor loft with supplied games and puzzles and a game room on the first floor also. The fully equipped kitchen has high end appliances and all the requirements to enjoy home made meals throughout the week. After our days at Disney, we enjoyed the warmth of the hot tub to soothe our aching muscles. The heated pool was enjoyed by all. Best of all, the mattresses on the beds were extremely comfortable which has been an issue at other vacation homes. The furnishings throughout the home are high end but at the same time extremely comfortable to kick back and enjoy. We're looking forward to our next stay at this vacation home.

"Wedding Weekend"
5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in September 2015
This house even had me in awe. Beautiful property, great decor. Plenty of room for us and our wedding party. The pool was used every day and having the game room and theater made for everyone having somewhere to spread out to if necessary. My guests were thoroughly impressed and did not want to leave! A return is being plotted...
Downers: We lucked out with no neighbors during most of our stay, the house has 1 neighbor right now, when they arrived we did have some noise from their a/c unit or pool filter which is between houses and you lose privacy fast with just screens between patios and pools. There is construction going on at the resort and we hope no new neighbors will be built behind it.
You can hear the music from the club house during the day when you are outside.
Smiles: House was fully prepped, nice and clean. Basic necessities provided (TP, hand soap, some trash bags, dish soap and laundry soap). Great bedding, such soft sheets. A massive washing machine to keep laundry to a minimum.
If you have a group go for this property, it's amazing!
