When The Great Escape Parkside opens,
some of its rooms will have King
beds, some will have Queens, some
will have two twins, and others will
have two sets of triple bunks.
There will also be
7 twin rollaways and 2 sleeper sofas
with twin beds in them. If you
really want to sleep a few more, you
could also use up to 3 of the fully
reclining seats of the Jumanji 2.0 theater. (Teens & young
adults, in particular, like to fall
asleep in the theater while watching
movies until the wee hours).
Absolutely! The Great
Escape Parkside is a high-end 15 bedroom estate
home with superior finishes and extremely
The 40,000 gallon pool will be an improved
version of the one at Great Escape 1.0
(Lakeside)...a huge billiard-themed swimming complex
providing limitless opportunities for
extreme relaxation. Many of our booked clients are
already adults-only groups
who chose The Great Escape Parkside for company retreats,
major TV sporting events, milestone birthdays, etc;
At Great Escape 1.0, we've already seen that our
adult clientele LOVES the outdoor kitchen,
the deluxe movie theater, karaoke, TV game shows,
the interactive mind-bending puzzles of the escape
room, etc; Most adults also are emphatic about
the hot tub, the campfire pit, and the Casino Games
Room. In short, there's
absolutely nothing at The Great Escape Parkside that fails to
"wow" adults-only groups...whether you're looking to
just hold meetings in the formal areas, spend your days
alternating between poolside loungers and the lazy river,
or even enjoy some of our larger-than-life games &
activities, you'll find that everyone in your group
The Great Escape Parkside--regardless of their age.
Simply put: Children
will have an unforgettable time and experience
something fun, wonderful, and even inspiring. We
hear testimonials all the
time from clients at The Great Escape 1.0 (Lakeside) who tell us that they asked their kids mid-stay if
they'd prefer to stay "home" at Great Escape or go to
Disney...and the kids choose Great Escape...every
time. From small toddlers to grade schoolers,
younger guests will find themselves surrounded by activities and "wow" areas
that capture their full attention and imagination.
They'll spend hours trying their hands at our giant OPERATION game,
racing against time in our
our giant LIGHT CHASE game, competing in
Pictionary, participating in events in
the TV Game Show Room,
swimming in the lazy river, using the
kiddy waterslide, trying to move our giant teak chess
pieces, watching family movies in
the Jumanji 2.0 theater, scoring better in our laser
beam bashing race than their parents,
playing video games,
singing karaoke, and so much more...
Your teenagers will be
posting non-stop photos and information via social
media (The Great Escape has great wi-fi!)--bragging about where
they are to their friends & followers. Teens
go nuts over the giant waterslide, find themselves
unable to get enough of the
adore human bowling,
enjoy the human board game,
competitively play our other
sporting activities, chillax with our abundance of video games,
test their skills at the
laser games, attempt to make it through
the Escape Room
Game, get themselves VERY into the
their hearts out at karaoke, try in vain to complete
world's largest crossword puzzle.... and they usually have
to be pulled out of the Jumanji 2.0 movie theater. They can even
Bluetooth their music to any of our sound systems so
your whole family can hear all of their favorite
songs! Like everyone else in your group,
teenagers never seen anything like The Great Escape
(unless you've stayed at The Great Escape Lakeside!)--and
they'll have dropped jaws from the moment they first
Yes! Just like at
Great Escape 1.0, the new Great Escape Parkside will
have a fully
stocked kitchen!-- We'll have all common appliances
you'd expect to find in the kitchen of an upscale
home plus a few extras. There'll also be a coffee maker
and a Keurig, as well as silverware &
service for dozens and dozens and dozens of people.
We'll also have second/spare refrigerator in the
garage for additional food storage. Additionally,
our outdoor kitchen will be stocked with service for
at least 60 people AND
has an extra dishwasher and even an ice machine!
Although Great Escape Parkside is the larger of the
two estates, we're keeping their prices the same for
now!During the off season,
renting The Great Escape Parkside is $1295-1395/night +
$888 departure cleaning and 11% tax. In peak season
(summers and certain major holidays), it's
$1495-1595/night+ tax & cleaning. Mid-Season's
(certain February-April Spring Break weeks) base
rate is $1395-1495/night....In all seasons, it's an
additional $150 for weekend nights. A flat
$188 amenities fee is added to all bookings to cover
frequent replacement of linens and a number of other
maintenance items that require periodic attention to
keep the estate looking so amazing! If you're booking a 3
night Friday-Monday stay during the off season, you
would usually calculate your total price as follows: 2
weekend nights at $1445/ea= $2890 + $1295 (for Sunday night) +
$888 departure cleaning + $188 amenities fee + 11%
tax= $5,839.71. The deposit to hold a
reservation is 40% of your total and the balance isn't due
until 60 days prior to check-in. That price grants you
exclusive rights to the entire 10 acre wooded
estate, sleeping space for more than 50 guests, pool/lazy river/hot tub/waterslide use,
unlimited laser game & escape room game play, and all of
the dozens of other amenities listed on this site!

almost always more cost effective for you to rent The Great
Escape Parkside than it would be to rent a
comparable number of nice hotel rooms and when you
consider the abundance of entertainment amenities
you get to enjoy at Great Escape, you'll surely find that our rates are
extremely fair (ticket to a commercial laser maze
and escape room alone would cost you about $40 per
person anywhere in Orlando just to play them each
vacation rentals to The Great Escape series of homes would
be like comparing a Monopoly tournament to a
knitting class! Along with our
sister properties, The Sweet Escape House &
The Ever After Estate, we're truly in a
class by ourselves. No one who charges less has our
sleeping capacity, hardly any have our sprawling acreage, and
certainly no other home has our unique level of
"wow" amenities & attractions. From the
laser maze to our
crossword puzzle wall,
courts, and beyond, no expense has been
spared at The Great Escape Parkside when it comes to
making sure we've created the WORLD'S most unique
and entertaining luxury estate rental. Any other you might rent is
really.... "just a house."
Standard check-in is 4pm and standard check-out is
10am. We often have same-day guest transitions and
our housekeeping, pool, & maintenance crews
definitely need every minute of those 6 hours to
prepare The Great Escape Parkside for your arrival. When we
do not have a same-day transition, we may be able to
accommodate an early check-in and/or a late
check-out for an additional fee---but we often
cannot know for sure if this will be possible
until a week or two prior to your arrival.
You can cancel your reservation at The Great Escape
Parkside up to 90 calendar days prior to your scheduled
check-in date. The only penalty for doing so is a
$175 cancellation fee (and any credit card fees if
you used a card to make your deposit). If you cancel
with 90 or fewer days until check-in, your deposit
and any additional money paid would be forfeited.
Sorry! Just like any
major hotel, cruise ship, or travel destination,
your dates cannot be officially held with only a
verbal request. Every booking requires a
completed rental agreement and 40% deposit. Please
understand that it simply
wouldn't be fair to turn away other potential guests
while your group decides whether or not to book the
estate. HOWEVER, if you're SURE you want to reserve
The Great Escape but simply need a little time to
collect money from each person in your family/group
and don't want to lose your dates in the meantime, then we
DO have the option to hold
your dates with a signed rental agreement and a
non-refundable partial deposit of $500 (normally,
deposit would be refundable if cancelled up to 90 days
prior to check-in). You'll then have 14 calendar
days to pay the remainder of your 30% deposit to
keep your reservation.
We surely can... but
please know that cancellations are *extremely*
uncommon. If your dates are unavailable and aren't
at all flexible, then we recommend checking
availability at one of our "sister" properties
managed by Orlando Area
Luxury Rentals (just like The Great Escape!). You can see a very complete calendar displaying availability for all of our homes at once by clicking here.
All of our other homes are just as unique and over-the-top as Great Escape Parkside! In fact, Travel
& Leisure Magazine called The Sweet Escape House (www.sweetescapehouse.com)
"...more fun than Disney World..." and HGTV featured
The Ever After Estate (www.theeverafterestate.com)
on "Most Outrageous Homes In America!"
Check them both out and also checkout
Great Escape 1.0 (Lakeside) for availability
Use the "RESERVE"
link on our menu and select your dates. Enter your
contact information and a short time later, we'll call
and/or email you to confirm your booking and then
email you a rental agreement. Initial, sign, and
return the agreement with your 40% deposit (via your
choice of any major credit card, check, or direct
deposit)...Once you've done that, you've got an
confirmed reservation at The Great Escape Parkside!
There are plenty of stores and restaurants within an
easy 5-10 minute drive (and two restaurants within a
2-3 minute drive or a fairly short power walk!). The Great Escape
Parkside is located
right outside the sprawling Orlando suburb of
Clermont which has a Super Target, Kohl's, Wal-Mart,
etc;--even a BJ's Warehouse! (CostCo and
Sam's Club are further though--roughly a half an
hour from the Estate). It's only about 35 minutes from
the gates of The Great Escape to the main gate of
Walt Disney World. Orlando International Airport (MCO)
is about 45 minutes by car.
On a case-by-case
basis, we do allow guests to bring
hypoallergenic, potty-trained dogs. (In short, this
means nearly any dog CAN come!) Guests are required
to have their pets pre-approved. There is a $29
fee per pet per day.
The Great Escape wasn't specifically designed
for wheelchair access but we've had wheelchair
guests stay on site--and they've loved it! The
entire downstairs (9 of the 15 bedrooms) can be
accessed with only one step up onto the front
porch but most wheelchair guests probably will
not be able to go upstairs. The lower level does
have two walk-in showers in the 2 master suites--
with only a minor step down to get in to either of
