Vasquez Retreat was fantastic and perfect for us. We have a family of 6 and the home had more room than we could use. Two families our size could easily share the home and have plenty of room. Not only was the home great, but the service we received from Wplc was well above any other rental company we've used in Winter Park as well as in Maine or Florida, the other two states where we regularly rent homes.The home is nicely furnished and comfortable. We would equate it to a 3 star+ - 4 star hotel. The hot tub, grill, fire pit, and land surrounding the house made not only the inside, but the outside useable for our family. The kitchen was well equipped for the type of cooking the average person would do on vacation and all bedrooms were comfortable, roomy, and nicely decorated. A note for families with small children: At Vasquez Retreat you do not have to worry about small objects and knick knacks all over the home which to us was a blessing. Plenty of games, movies, and evening entertainment. One nice upgrade would be a larger cable TV package with some kid-friendly channels. Wireless internet was fast and reliable for those of you who have to work a bit on vacation. The newly remodeled downstairs shower is Won-der-ful!!!The home is less than 5 minutes from downtown Winter Park, but you feel like you're miles away from anything regarding tourists or crowds. One of our favorite things to do was building a fire, eating s'mores, watching the sunset, then jumping in the hot tub when it got cool in the evening. One consideration you might take into account is proximity to the Winter Park ski area. I do believe there is shuttle service.I've tried to come up with constructive criticisms that would be objective rather than simply something our family, but not necessarily others, would like to change or add to the home. I honestly cannot come up with any. Please give this home serious consideration for your stay in Winter Park. It's a great place.
Bart, thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, it means a lot to us that you loved Vasquez Retreat and enjoyed all the fun activities here in our little mountain town of Winter Park. It was our complete pleasure to host your stay and we'd love to see you all back up here for another visit in the future (don't forget to mention that you've stayed with us before to get your 15% return guest discount).On a side note, you are absolutely right in your belief that the free winter shuttle service to the ski area stops right at the bottom of the driveway, such a bonus when you're juggling kids and ski gear!Thank you for being a guest of Winter Park Lodging Company.Best wishes
