When bringing your family to the “Happiest Place on Earth,” you need a home that’s the most comfortable place on earth. With 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and plenty of spacious rooms for kicking back, we’ve gone beyond mere comfort.
Welcome to Sun Gathering House, our light-filled home with private pool, conveniently located in the Champions Gate vacation community, 15 minutes from Walt Disney World.
Nestled just a two-minute stroll from the Oasis Club—where you can float down the lazy river, zip down the waterslide or cool off with a cold one at the tiki bar—Sun Gathering House is the happy ending to your search for the perfect family home on Disney’s doorstep.
LIKE HOME, ONLY BETTER
Traveling as a multi-generational family group? Not sure if it’s possible to have the space, the location, AND the luxurious touches that make your stay unforgettable?
Check out our dizzying list of amenities, ranging from the must-haves (plenty of towels, kitchen staples, washer-dryer, free wi-fi) to the extras (heated pool, home theater, gaming room, flatscreen TVs in every bedroom). We won't judge you if you spend more time here than in the theme parks.
Traveling with babies? We've got 2 pack-n-plays, 2 highchairs, 2 dining booster seats, and stairs gates. Kids, tweens and teens will love the Star Wars and Mickey Mouse themed bunk rooms, the air hockey table, Netflix and the 3 (yes, 3!) Xbox Ones in the Avengers themed gaming room.
The grown-up kids will fall for the stylish designer decor, including artwork and lots of cozy throws; the well-stocked gourmet kitchen; and those soft-as-clouds Memory Foam mattresses. The pool (heated in late fall, winter, and early spring) and spillover jacuzzi are the best cures for park-weary legs. As is a trip to the on-site restaurant or tiki bar at The Oasis Club. Did I mention it's only a 1 minute walk from the house? There you'll also find a heated lazy river, kids splash area and gym. (And entry is included with your stay.)
Of course it's easy to get there too, with Disney less than 15 minutes' drive. Universal and SeaWorld are just 25 minutes away.
6 BEDROOMS / 6 FULL BATHS
No more fighting over who gets the best room or racing to the bathroom in the morning. At Sun Gathering House, every room is as special as the next, with enough bathrooms to go around.
Younger travelers love the fun of bunk beds (2 sets in each of the 2 kids rooms), where they can climb into their own space at the end of the day, unwind with a movie or simply drift off with joyful anticipation of the next day’s adventure.
Parents can sink into their own private sanctuaries – decorated in calming shades of blue, grey, and terra cotta – and enjoy time to themselves in blissfully kid-free zones. Three king rooms are located upstairs, with a fourth king suite located on ground level, perfect for those with mobility concerns.
The smoke-free, pet-free home also includes parking, BBQ and outdoor seating for 16.

Our family loves to travel, especially to Disney! We have made alot of new friends in our travels and are always looking to meet more fun loving families. Our twin boys have favorites in every park, but their favorite Dining Location is Yak and Yeti. The food there is amazing and it is not too far from Expedition Everest. Their favorite ride is Splash Mountain.
Our last trip to Disney was in March and we rented a house for the first time and everyone had a great time. Even though the parks shut down 2 days after our arrival, we still managed to go to all 4 theme parks on March 15 and rode 17 attractions, some of them more than once. We had such a great time at the house that we rented even with the parks closed that we decided we wanted to find our own place and share it with as many families as we could. We found such a house and were fortunate enough to buy it from someone who is as big a Disney and Universal Studios fan as we are. We plan on making your family vacation as special and magical as we would want for our own family.
Since we’ve become part of The Retreat at ChampionsGate, we’ve discovered a host of activities beyond the theme parks that we enjoy. The Oasis Club is a two minute stroll from our homes and offers a day of relaxation and water play. ChampionsGate Country Club offers world class golf to visitors, and Bok Tower Gardens is a beautiful setting for escaping the park crowds and enjoying time together surrounded by beautiful plants, birds, and even tortoises. A day trip to Clearwater Beach is an easy 90 minute drive to the Gulf of Mexico. Please see our website for links to a myriad of local activities.
Opening our home to provide families a beautiful setting for creating magical memories of their own is our goal. We’d love to share Sun Gathering House with you too!

The owner has thought of everything. You can literally show up with your suitcase and be right at home. Publix is minutes away, as well as Walmart and restaurants. Disney is a short drive or Uber ride away. The house is beautifully decorated. Our group spent a lot of time together around the large dining table and on the two roomy couches in the open living area. The kitchen has any utensils and cookware you need to prepare meals. Spacious cabinets, roomy pantry, and a massive amount of counter space. The laundry room has plenty of laundry baskets, detergent, stain removers, dryer sheets, iron, and ironing board. There is a second washer and dryer in the 2 car garage. The bathrooms are fully stocked with necessities. Our King suite on the main floor had the most comfortable mattress! Our en-suite bath was really large and had amazing water pressure in the walk in shower. Loved it!
The private pool and spa was perfect for the kids. They kept those busy! Loved the seating area and screened in pool area. I would most definitely stay here again. I’ve been home a day and have mentioned several times I miss the kitchen and shower at Sun Gathering House!!

Best Family Vacation EVER because of our stay at the Sun Gathering House! Yes, we went to all 4 Disney Parks and had a great time. But coming “home” at night to the Sun Gathering House felt just like home to all of us. We had 7 adults and 5 grand kids -under the age of 5! Our adult kids & spouses loved the house and all the amenities. Renting the right vacation home is BETTER than staying at a hotel. Yes, even better than staying at a Disney property! The drive to the parks was easy!
The pool & spa were used everyday! Spa gets very hot-not lukewarm! We did a lot of research on rental homes near Disney World before deciding on this one. We absolutely made the best decision! Very clean and well appointed. Loved the 2 porta-cribs and 2 high chairs! Owners were very helpful and informative making the rental process a breeze! We will definitely stay here again! I just watched the video tour again before writing this review and I felt a little “homesick!”
I wanted to be back on vacation at the Sun Gathering House with my extended family! Don’t waste your time looking at other vacation homes- just book this one! You will not be disappointed!
Stayed February, 2021
We stayed 10 days in this spectacular home! A perfect place to relax and play after the chaos of the theme parks!
The house is beautiful and pristine in its cleanliness with an open layout. The rooms are very spacious and well-appointed with many extra amenities. The furniture is inviting and comfortable!
The pool is always heated at a perfect temp for free! The spa heats quickly so I could have my morning coffee in the spa!
The gated community grounds are very nice! It was a brief 2-4 minute walk to the clubhouse. We had a blast in the lazy river and water park! And poolside drink service was a plus! Next time I will schedule a massage!
The house is close to the freeway, stores, restaurants, and just a short drive to Disney and universal parks.
David, the owner was positively marvelous! He was warm and welcoming, responded very quickly to calls/text/email. He checked in to see if we were having fun or needed anything and gave great ideas! He is an "ultra supra" host!
With many magical memories, we will continue to recommend this home to other friends and look forward to another visit! Thank you!

This home is located in a large, planned development called Champions Gate. This is a wonderful home for large families enjoying Disney World or Universal Studios. The house looked brand new and was beautifully decorated and furnished. The house was very, very clean! Kids were entertained in the home theater, pool, hot tub, and three X-box stations. There was only a short, 5 minute walk to the very large Oasis Club House with multiple pools, hot tub, a slide, and a lazy river. The family spent two full days at the Club at no charge. It was so relaxing after the busy and hectic days at Universal Studios. The house has a very large kitchen and eating areas, both inside,and outside by the pool. The owner, Shannon, was extremely responsive and helpful in any questions we had before and during our stay. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Orlando area.

As a first time home renter for a family vacation, I couldnt be more pleased. From the moment I walked into the house you could see how much care was taken in the home. Every room was impeccable, absolutely spotless.
The kitchen was fully stocked, the utensil drawers were not only plentiful but completely organized. All the light switches thruout the home were marked which made it so simple for everyone. The bathrooms had everything including shampoo, creme rinse, etc. Makeup mirrors, blow dryers, paper goods. The outdoor pool area was very clean and the pool was supplied with plenty of puddle jumpers for the little ones and floats etc for everyone else. Each tv in the bedrooms, family room and media room was provided with instructions on how to use the TV and cable remotes.
The pictures of the home didnt even do it justice, it was more beautiful in person. Working with the home owners was an absolute delight. Any questions were answered by email almost immediately. Keith and Shannon made my family vacation at Champions Gate one I will never forget and would like to do again. The Oasis Club is just a 2 minute walk from the house and the lazy river is a nice diversion from theme park days. There are so many more things included in this rental. Mickey ad Minnie are just as lifelike as the ones in the picture. 9008 Hazard Street was a perfect first time experience. Thank you Shannon and Keith.

First time renting a house, I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. Shannon was very responsive and helpful and made my first house rental experience very easy. The house was just as advertised. The house and pool were very clean and was perfect for our three small children. I will be booking with Shannon again in the future.

My family and I stayed at the Sun Gathering House and what a wonderful experience! Everything was exactly as described. Shannon was extremely helpful and responding so quickly to my questions. She even checked on our arrival to be sure everything was fine. The house was spectacular, super clean and the layout of the home was unbelievable. We loved everything from the time we entered the home - the bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The theater room was awesome and my 2 year old granddaughter just loved sitting at the kids table with Minnie & Mickey (huge stuffed animals) to enjoy her meals. The outside pool and deck area were also enjoyable. I cannot say enough about this home. The Oasis Club was very nice. They did not have enough tubes for the lazy river and were expecting a shipment but a small problem. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Truly loved and cared for by the owners. We would highly recommend - and plan to stay there again. THANK YOU SHANNON for opening your home and all your helpful information! FIVE STARS!!!
Stayed August, 2018
We were not disappointed at all! This house was just like the description and the pictures. The owners were great during our stay. We were able to communicate via text for any questions that we had. They even had a pool float delivered for us. I would stay hear again in a sec!
Stayed July, 2018
I loved the cleanliness of the home. Walking in was like coming home, not like a rental.
Stayed June, 2018
When we entered the store we were thrilled with the look and presentation of the house. Even the air temp was perfect. I’ve been in many vacation rental homes that are far to warm and where owners lock controls of temperatures. The home was presented with plenty of tp, paper towels, garbage bags, laundry detergent and stain spray, even coffee! We didn’t have to run out to get supplies! I was very pleanstly surprised to have the owner herself personall contact me to make sure everything was perfect and going well. She was present via text for anything we needed during our stay. The oasis club house and pool was very cool and fun. We ate there one night and the food was good. The pool,sides, and splash pads where perfect for our children ages 5,3. There was lots of activity at the common areas and filled with fun and kids and teens of all ages. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and I will definitely be returning to this home.
