Tropical Retreat is a perfect location from which to visit Disney and Universal. It offers quick easy drives to all parks, and other Kissimmee/Orlando destinations. The house is perfect, with a very efficient layout with plenty of room to spread out, lots of activities, and privacy for everyone. The pool was a wonderful treat, after a long day of park hopping. The house was clean, modern, and well stocked with all the amenities. We loved the extensive selection of games, DVD's, etc. WIFI was perfect. My teenagers loved the game room, and I had so much fun, I didn't mind getting consistently beaten at pool by my wife and kids. We would stay here again and again.
My husband and another couple stayed at this house for a week and it was glorious! The house was immaculate, comfortable and very well-appointed. Both the living room and master bedroom suite have amazing views of the beach.
The house came stocked with excellent kitchen supplies for easy cooking and a great bbq pit.
The garage was stocked with great beach supplies - chairs, umbrellas, floats etc. The beach was a quiet getaway with clean white sand and clear warm water.
There were restaurants and activities close by and we were only a 15 min from Clearwater. We kayaked from Clearwater to Caladesi island which was really fun, we saw dolphins, fish, birds and found some really unique shells.
We also drove to Tampa one evening for a night out and ate at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. It was fantastic, great food, great sangria, great music and flamenco dancing; definitely worth the 45 min drive.
We were all sad to leave at the end of the week and can't wait to return!
We loved the beach house and did not use our car during the entire time we were here! 2 minute walk to the beach, walk to the zoo, shopping, coffee, etc. The house had everything we needed and was in an ideal location.
