The beauty of Orlando and its partner in fun, Disney, is reflected in one of our more popular Tropical Escape Vacation Homes larger escapes. The Retreat at Champions Gate offers 6 serene bedrooms, 6 spa-like baths, and all the magic your favorite theme park can spare, and when your journey brings you to this special home, you and 13 guests can share in that wonder! 9028SH Champions Gate is one of our favorite resort communities and the Retreat provides access to all its amenities, something we will explore more later. For now, however, this guide to the Retreat at Champions Gate will show you just how much you need this beautiful rental in Orlando to be yours during your magical getaway!
Modern Style and Magical Whimsy Combine
A Disney vacation is generally geared toward younger travelers, but that doesn’t mean the place you choose to sleep in each night can’t be a sophisticated escape. Step into the bright open concept floor plan of the Retreat and fall in love with the sleek modern style that surrounds you. Marble tile floors create paths of elegance that lead the way to the comfort of a living room that blends modern style with all the plush comforts that will make you feel welcomed. An oversized sectional upholstered in a soft and cool gray material anchors the space, conveniently located opposite a television so large and offering a picture so clear you will think you are a part of the action on the screen. Gray walls and high ceilings ensure that the rooms stay bright and airy and a coffered effect on one wall adds an extra touch of style. The dining room table, a large dark wood one placed under modern pendant lights, is surrounded by velvety topped chairs and promises to be one of the most popular spots in the house as games are played, meals are devoured, and television shows are easily monitored. The kitchen anchors the open floor plan, offering modern conveniences that include stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, and white marble countertops that contrast beautifully with the dark wood of the cabinets. The peninsula provides overflow seating for 3 barstools that are super comfortable and stylish and a coffee maker and toaster line the counters, ensuring guests are fully caffeinated.
Staying Entertained is Easy in The Retreat at Champions Gate
The garage of this special property is not meant to be used for cars, but we don’t think you will mind, especially when you discover this normally utilitarian space has been transformed into a Star Wars-themed game room! Darth Vader and his army of Storm Troopers keep an eye on the situation from his vantage spot along one wall and a full-sized pool table, air hockey table, and foosball table center the space. In one corner an arcade game waits to be used and along the largest wall of the space, two gaming chairs face a large smart television providing the ideal spot to hook up your favorite game console and get lost in video games whenever you aren’t exploring Orlando. LED lights frame the charcoal-painted ceiling and in addition to the Darth Vader mural, there are other Star Wars-themed murals that adorn the walls. Not all the fun will take place indoors, however, as the substantial screened-in lanai offers a private pool that your kids will never want to leave. Additional seating, a dining space, and a barbecue grill will be much appreciated when you just don’t have the heart to tell the kids to get out of the pool and just want to hang out outside as long as possible!
6 Tranquil Bedrooms
The sleeping quarters of the Retreat are destined to be your favorite spaces, allowing guests to retreat from the noise of the world. The master suite, featuring a king bed and ensuite bath is a large and bright space located on the main floor, offering a smart television in the bedroom and a walk-in shower in the bath. The remaining bedrooms are upstairs, and although the upstairs king ensuite and queen guest room are popular rooms, we have a feeling the “kids quarters” will be a hit with the entire family! Starting with the princess room, where gold crowns hold up the netting for a princess canopy over the two twin beds, the pastel accents will make every little girl feel like a princess. The Mickey-themed room offers a metal cutout of the big guy himself, spotted wallpaper, and a twin over full bunk set where whispered secrets and muffled giggles will be heard throughout the night. This level also offers a secondary sitting area with bean bag chairs, multiple couches, and another large smart television. Offering a Marvel Heroes theme, this space will be the perfect hangout for the older teens in your traveling group who may also appreciate the final bedroom, a Harry Potter-themed space filled with a double and a twin bed placed against brick wallpapered walls on which pennants for the different houses of Hogwarts hang!
