Q & A ABOUT THE EVER AFTER ESTATE
"The pictures are great but seeing it in person is a whole other life experience!"
How can we sleep over 40 people in 13 bedrooms?
The Ever After Estate is a 62 acre island with over 8,000 square feet of interior living space. It is made up of a main house and two guest houses. Across the bedrooms, you'll find 4 king-sized beds, 4 queen-sized beds, 4 rooms with bunk beds (two twin beds each), and 1 room with 2 individual twin beds. In addition to the 13 bedrooms, the estate also has a full-sized futon (sleeps 1-2) and 14 twin-sized tri-fold or rollaway beds that sleep 1 person per bed. Additionally, there are 9 fully-reclining seats in the movie theater w/ blankets & pillows. (Young adults & teens, in particular, like to fall asleep in the theater room---while watching movies and playing video games until the wee hours!).

I don't see my dates available. Got any other homes that are as amazing as Ever After Estate?
Yes! Check out all of Orlando Area Luxury Rental's managed...over-the-top estates at www.orlandoarealuxuryrentals.com. You can also add yourself to our "wait list" by clicking the link to do so at the top of our site. Then you'll be instantly notified whenever anyone cancels dates that occur during your requested timeframe.
Does The Ever After Estate supply its own linens, cookware, utensils, hair dryers, irons....and toilet paper?
YES to ALL of the above...and more! The kitchens and bathrooms of the estate are fully stocked with all commonly expected items! You can have groceries delivered from the local Publix supermarket by using Instacart (app). Delivery from local restaurants is also available through UberEats and DoorDash.
Is there an ice machine on site?
We have an ice machine in the outdoor/summer kitchen. It creates approximately 45 lb of ice per day and can store 60-65 lb.
Do you have a coffee maker?
Yes. Two coffee makers and a Keurig-- This may vary with time as products evolve.
What are the rates?
Most of the year, it's $2985 per night to rent The Ever After Estate during the week and $3180/night to rent it on weekend nights. There's a 3 night minimum stay. Departure cleaning is $888, the amenities fee is $388, and taxes are 11%. Thus, a 4 day/3 night mid-week stay is computed as (3 X $2985)+$888+388+11%= $11,356. The deposit to hold a reservation is 30% of the total and the balance isn't due until 60 days prior to check-in. Spring Break, Summer, Thanksgiving, and Christmas periods may* rent at a higher nightly rate. Please check our price calculator for a precise rate quote.
Is the price open to negotiation?
Sorry, no. All rates are as advertised.
Do you offer military discounts?
The owners of The Ever After Estate and Orlando Area Luxury Rentals appreciate the service of our military but unfortunately, are not able to offer any military discount program. Hotels (as opposed to vacation homes)...can offer such discounts because they have hundreds of rooms for rent so they block off a certain number of them for military (and other) discount programs. Once their quota of discounted rooms is met for any given night, they rest are sold at full price. In contrast, we only rent the property in its entirety so there can exist no option for discount on the rent.
What is the cancellation policy?
A refund of your deposit (minus $285 & any credit card fees) is given if you cancel your reservation more than 120 days prior to check-in. In most cases, getting a separate trip insurance policy will cover you in the event of sudden illness or other last minute emergency.
Is the pool heated?
The water stays pretty warm year-round here in Central Florida. Depending on the weather, you may want the pool to be heated if you stay at The Ever After Estate between mid-December and early March. Pool heat is available for $45/day and you don't need to decide on it until a few days before you arrive.
Can I visit The Ever After Estate prior to booking?
Throughout this website and via direct contact with us, you can see 360 degree room tours & photos of virtually EVERY area of the Estate! You can also see the estate's floor plan by clicking here. Google "The Ever After Estate" or search the estate's name on Youtube and you'll find tons of mass media articles & videos, dozens of 5 star reviews, and even the estate's appearance on shows like HGTV'S "Most Outrageous Homes In America." If you have specific questions about the Ever After's layout, let us know and we can usually help you see whether or not Ever After is right for you without having to make a site visit. On the extremely rare occasion the owners allow someone on property to tour, the following conditions must be met: 1) A non-refundable $285 tour fee must be paid. Once you book the estate, $200 of that fee is then credited towards your booking, 2) The estate must be vacant, 3) You must come to the estate with the mindset that you have already decided to book it and just need to verify that everything is as advertised-- Tours are NOT intended for you to discover things about the property & its layout that you could have learned without visiting. If you're SURE you want to book The Ever After Estate and are POSITIVE you've done your research re: the property and its suitability for your needs BUT you want to visit first just to confirm that it has been accurately advertised, then contact us here.
Can you recommend any private chefs or additional services?
Absolutely! There are several talented, local chefs who have cooked for our guests in the past. We'll be happy to give you a list of names and numbers. We can also refer massage therapists for on-site services, personal trainers, and more! Many guests have even gone through a local event company to have Hawaiian luaus poolside! Click here for a list of approved chefs/vendors.
Can I have my wedding at The Ever After Estate?
Each year, between 6 and 10 weddings take place at the estate. Some are large (120+ guests). Some are small. For photos & information, click here.
Is There A CostCo, Sam's Club, or BJ's Nearby?
The Ever After Estate is located just outside the sprawling Orlando suburb of Clermont---which has most popular chains (Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl's, etc). Clermont, however, does not have a CostCo or Sam's Club but does have a BJ's Warehouse less than 15 minutes from The Ever After Estate at 2577 S. Highway 27, 34711. You can find a Sam's Club just 30 minutes away at 7810 W. Colonial Drive, 32818 and a CostCo approx. 35 minutes away at 4696 Gardens Park Blvd 32839.
