Vacation celebrity style!


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. How close is the main house to the guest house?

They're barely 50 feet apart and connected by a brick-paved walkway. Guests LOVE the fact that they can sleep certain parts of their group or family in the main house and certain other parts in the guest house. Both buildings have plenty of games, attractions, and "eye candy!"

7. 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 Lake County

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...

Five perfect days for a big family

  • 5 of 5

We had our first and ever family reunion in Sweet Escape, and nobody wanted it to finish.

We are 7 siblings from one side, and 3 from the other, each of us with kids from 6 months up to 21 year old no-so-much-kid, plus grandpa, we were 40+

And everybody was confortable there, every age group had things to do at any time of the day/night

it's a guarantee 24x7 fun place for every single family.

Amazing! Best Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.

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;
