Altogether, the Great Escape Parkside's
bedrooms boast 5 King-sized beds, 4 Queen sized beds, 4
twin-sized beds in double bunks, 18 twin-sized beds in triple
bunks, & 4 twin-sized beds in their own individual frames.
There are also 7 twin rollaway beds and a sleeper sofa with
its own fold-out twin bed as well. If you have a few more people
in your group, they can
easily sleep in the luxurious, fully reclining seats of the
Jumanji 2.0 theater. (Teens & young
adults are especially fond of falling asleep in the
Jumanji theater while watching
movies & playing video games on the
giant screen until the wee hours). We also keep 2-3 pack-n-play
cribs on site for the tiny ones!
Without a doubt-- YES! The Great
Escape Parkside is a high-end 15 bedroom luxury estate
home with extravagant finishes and unforgettably
comfortable bedding! It was designed with all
ages in mind. Our enormous pool deck features
the world's first
billiard-themed swimming pool
(yes, it's a "pool pool"!) and resort-style
lounging. All-adult groups LOVE the
lazy river, the
outdoor kitchen, the
state-of-the-art movie theater,
the casino games parlor suite,
the karaoke sound
the sports courts, the mind-bending puzzles
of the two
escape rooms, the hot tub,
pit, and so much more! The Great Escape Parkside is
an indisputably excellent location for corporate
retreats, milestone birthdays & anniversaries, etc;
Whether you're looking to
have everyone participate in team-building, hold
productive group meetings, or just spend your days
alternating between our swimming paradise and the
reclining seats of the theater, you're
more-than-likely to find that everyone has something
they LOVE to do at the estate.
Absolutely! Heck yes! We've stocked
"slice-n-DICE" (indoor) kitchen with everything we
you'd expect to find in an upscale
vacation retreat rental...and then some! There's
a microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven, toaster, etc;
Of course, you'll find both a traditional coffee maker
and a Keurig... as well as
dishware/silverware for dozens and dozens and dozens of people.
The indoor kitchen even has TWO full-sized
refrigerators while the outdoor "Burger Time"
kitchen has an additional mini-fridge and a
commercial ice maker. That second outdoor kitchen
also features its own dishwasher and of course, a large grill!
Yes! We'll keep 2-3 pack-n-play cribs
and high chair attachments on
site! If you absolutely need 3, please call ahead to
make sure the third one is there and ready for you.
We can also refer a local vendor who rents
additional cribs and other baby equipment as well.
During the off season,
staying at The Great Escape Parkside is usually $1395
per weeknight and $1545 per weekend night +
$888 departure cleaning and 11% tax. In peak season
(summers and certain major holidays), it's
$1695-1745/night+ tax & cleaning. Mid-Season's base
rate is $1495-1645/night (certain February-April
Spring Break weeks and parts of October). In all seasons,
the lower rate is for weeknights and the higher rate
is for "weekend" nights (Thursday night, Friday
night, Saturday night). A flat
$288 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 beautiful! If you're booking 3
nights from Friday-Monday during the off season, you
would usually calculate your total price as follows: 2
weekend nights at $1545/ea= $3090 + $1395 (for Sunday night) +
$888 departure cleaning + $288 amenities fee + 11%
tax= $6,289.26. Of course, if you bring 54
people...that's only $38.82 per person per night for
exclusive access to the entire estate & all of its
over-the-top games & amenities. As rates do
please use our rate calculator to get an
instant...and exact price for any dates you choose!
Sorry! Even though we're a "game" house
retreat, we don't
play with our pricing! To be fair to all, our
advertised rates are theactual and final prices
We're confident that you'll find renting The
Great Escape Parkside to be an excellent value when
you compare it with the price of an ordinary hotel
stay for 20-50 people. Remember: Going into Orlando
to play a laser maze and 2 escape rooms would...by
itself, usually cost in excess of $70 per person
and yet those games are just a couple of the many
attractions & diversions included in your
stay at Great Escape! At times, you may find last
minute deals to fill-in for cancellations
on our Facebook page.
Comparing The Great
Escape series of luxury estate retreat homes to "vacation rentals"
would be like comparing the renting of an
amenities-filled limousine to renting an SUV...It
would be like comparing a themed, elegant 5 course
dinner extravaganza w/ an acrobat show....to a quick
bite at a fast food buffet chain....Ok, better
still...It would be like comparing the ultimate
family game night to a simple round of marbles! We
are not a "vacation rental" but rather, we're
something but better: We're an entire multi-acre
retreat you get to have entirely to your selves!
Along with our
sister properties, The
Great Escape Lakeside,
The Sweet Escape
The Ever After Estate, we're truly "runnin' this
game!" Vacation rentals don't offer the
sleeping capacity that vacation retreats do....Vacation
rentals rarely offer the vast acreage that our
certainly no vacation home has our
one-of-a-kind level of
"wow" amenities & attractions. From
high-tech laser maze to our
giant maze wall,
state-of-the-art movie theater,
courts, human bowling course...and beyond, NO expense
was spared when it came to making this one of the WORLD'S most entertaining luxury estate.
Any other place is
really.... "just a house" and
THAT....players... ain't no GAME!
Our typical check-in is at 4pm and our standard check-out is
10am. We may* be able to accommodate an early
check-in and/or a late check-out for an additional
fee---but we usually can't know for sure until a
week or so prior to your arrival. This
is because we often have same-day guest transitions and
our housekeeping, pool, & maintenance crews
almost always need every minute of those 6 hours to
turnaround the estate between guests.
YES!---It's all included! There's no extra cost to play our
games, our machines, or to use our amenities. The
ONE exception is an antique "Uncle Same Grip Tester"
machine in our Carnival Midway Games Room. There was
no way to program ol' Uncle Sam to stop requiring
quarters BUT if you put some in, we're happy to
refund them at checkout!
If you decide to exit the game before you
ever get to come and play, you can cancel your
reservation up to 120 calendar days prior to your scheduled
arrival. The only penalty for doing so is a
$285 cancellation fee (and any credit card fees you
may have paid). However, if you cancel
with 120 or fewer days left to go, then your deposit
and any additional money paid would have to be forfeited. In most cases,
purchasing a travel insurance policy will
protect your deposit in the unlikely event that
you get sick and need to cancel at the last
It would be awesome if we had a way to do so
but....just as with most cruise ships, major
hotels, or other travel experiences,
your dates cannot be officially held with only a
verbal request to do so. To make your booking
"official," please remit your 40% deposit and signed
rental agreement. We hope you understand that it simply
wouldn't be fair to turn away other guests
who are sure they're ready to book...
while your group decides whether or not it's going
to work out. BUT... if you're SURE you want to reserve
The Great Escape and simply need a little time to
collect money from each person in your family/group
and don't want to risk losing your dates, then we
DO offer the option to hold
your booking with a signed rental agreement and a
non-refundable partial deposit of just $500. You'll then have 14 calendar
days to pay the remainder of your 40% deposit to
complete your reservation. Keep in mind, however,
that if you originate your booking this way and later
need to cancel it,
the $500 then becomes non-refundable. If you'd like
to set up a "500 down" booking, please let us know
by calling (or text messaging) 352-250-4220 or use
Yes! Use the "Wait
List" link at the top of our site
to be instantly notified (by email) the moment
that anyone cancels a reservation that was set to
occur within your desired date range. In the
meantime, be sure to check
availability at our "sister" properties
also managed by
Luxury Rentals. You
may have your heart set on The Great Escape Parkside but the other
homes are usually considered
to be just as awesome! 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!"
Great Escape Lakeside has been in the
Guinness Book of World Records and countless
mass media publications! Read about them all at
Use the "RESERVE"
link on our menu and select your dates. Enter your contact
information and make your 40% deposit (via your choice of
any major credit card, check, e-check, Zelle, wire transfer, or
direct deposit). We'll call
and/or email you to confirm your booking and email you a rental agreement. Initial, sign, and
return the agreement (or complete it online). Once you've done that,
you'll be officially confirmed to stay at The Great Escape Parkside!
TONS of stores and restaurants within an
easy 5-10 minute drive (and there are even two restaurants within a
fairly short 20-30 minute power walk!) Entire
shopping centers are only one traffic light
away! The Great Escape Parkside is located
barely 15 minutes from the heart of Clermont, a
sprawling Orlando suburb which has a Super
Target, Kohl's, Wal-Mart, etc;. We're only about 35 minutes from
the main gate of
Walt Disney World while Orlando International Airport (MCO)
is about 40-45 minutes by car and Tampa
International Airport (TPA) is about 75-80
minutes by car.
On a case-by-case
basis, we do allow guests to bring
hypoallergenic, potty-trained dogs. (In other words, this
means nearly any dog CAN come!) Guests are required
to have their pets pre-approved. There's a $29
fee per pet per day.
The Great Escape Parkside wasn't specifically designed
for wheelchair-bound guests but we have had a
few stay on site---and they've reported loving it! The
entire downstairs (9 of the 15 bedrooms) can be
accessed with only one step up from the front
porch but wheelchair guests will
not be able to go upstairs to the second floor unless they can
walk/transfer. 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
them. If you're unsure re: what's upstairs vs.
click here to check out our floor plan.
Go inside of a giant zorb ball and roll
yourself in to a set
of soft bowling pins! You can
