I don't know where to begin! We walked in and were blown away. The pictures online don't do justice to the amazing detail and imagination put into this house! As I got the tour from Nicole, I could hear the kids running from room to room screaming "oh my God". We were a group of 13 kids, 10 y/o down to 2, and 11 adults. I don't know who had more fun.The big kids, aka adults, or the little ones. The place has everything. I have taken my family on cruises, Disney, Outer Banks etc. vacations and this place blew them away! We didn't have to leave the house for anything except groceries. The pool was perfect and the main meeting place for everyone every morning. The house has a beeping alarm anytime someone opens a door to the outside. This was great for the parents to be able to relax at dinner upstairs while the kids played in the arcade or movie theater. Also for piece of mind, the doors leading to the pool have a high lock so kids can't reach it. At night we would lock that and sleep easy. The BBQ is top notch and we used it a lot. The BBQ bar area and pool area is the perfect set up. You can cook, hang out and watch the kids from everywhere. The kitchen is stocked with all of the pots and pans type items you can imagine. We all had a blast doing the house scavenger hunt! Challenging but loads of fun. Everyone knows from pictures how beautiful the place is. But what makes any vacation great? Well rested parents! The beds were all very comfortable and we all raved about how well we were able to sleep! I have rented many multi family houses and were disappointed by the night sleep we got. Or should I say didn't get because the beds were uncomfortable. Not the case here at all. I am now looking into the karaoke system they had! It was awesome. None of us can sing a lick but we sang our hearts out with that system! The kids loved it! Singing and dancing under the lights! I can keep going on and on. I guess the best way to let anyone know how much fun we had is by our booking of the Great Escape Lakeside! We will be going there in 10 weeks! We can't get enough! Something tells me the Ever After Estate is in our future as well! One last thing because I need to mention it. Andrew and his crew were there for us every step of the way! More than accommodating! Thank you Andrew and Belinda for our best vacation yet!
