Bear’s Den at Reunion – Video Update

By Kev
At Jan 20, 2018

This week we ‘took to the skies’ to capture a glimpse of the developments at Reunion Resort Orlando.
Check out the video and perhaps pause the opening shot to view the initial stages of construction for the Nicklaus Course Clubhouse!
Long awaited, it finally looks set to debut some time in 2018.
We can’t wait to bring you further details.

Throughout the rest of the video, you can see the Bear’s Den community as it emerges from the ground.
To the left of the video, lots are assigned to production homes, but to the right, overlooking the 18th green and fairway, you will see a strip of lots that are available for custom home builds.

For pricing, please reach out to us and we’d be more than happy to explain more about this new gated community within Reunion Resort, Orlando!

The Importance of The Master Builder Custom Council to Home Buyers

By Kev
At Dec 24, 2017

Master Custom Builder Council

(MCBC)

The Significance of our MCBC Membership

Master Custom Builder Council members are evaluated on a constant basis in order to assess each builder’s credit score, quality of workmanship, customer satisfaction, liens and past due amounts.
Ongoing membership of the Master Custom Builder Council is subject to satisfactory compliance of the MCBC assessment process.
Our latest MCBC Credit Report and membership status is attached.

The Purpose of the MCBC

Joining the MCBC is not an easy process.  A builder must be nominated by two existing MCBC members.  Following that, the builder’s financial status, the ability to demonstrate quality craftsmanship and client satisfaction.   Out of hundreds of Central Florida custom builders, only 26 have been awarded membership status within the MCBC.  The McNally Construction Group is  very proud to be one of the longest standing MCBC members.

The Master Custom Builders Council was formed by a group of Central Florida’s leading custom builders with a view to maintaining the highest possible standards of integrity, regulatory compliance and workmanship.
As a member of the Master Custom Builder Council, we pledge to…

  • Use honesty and integrity as the primary guide for our business policy,
  • Deal fairly with our customers, each other, employees, subs and suppliers,
  • Use the highest standards in the workmanship of the homes we build,
  • Always be professional in every area of our lives,
  • Personally participate in the community service projects promoted by the organization.

The MCBC is operated as a democratic council, and offers impartial advice to home owners.
No single builder can determine their own status within the MCBC and the organization values its unbiased integrity above all else in the interest of the home owner.
It is purely there to ensure that builder’s home buyers can trust a level of integrity and compliance so that they can invest in a home with confidence.
Should you have an issue with any member builder of the MCBC, you may raise a complaint in person and the MCBC will offer advice on how to resolve your concern.

You may at any time contact the MCBC as follows;

Large Vacation Homes – Reunion’s Success Story!

By Kev
At Sep 06, 2017

 

Our latest new McNally Mansion is a major success for its owners and future rental guests!

Just weeks after we completed the build, the Magical Vacation Homes team have already secured dozens of bookings, some reaching as far forward as 2018.
The exciting new 12 bedroom mansion is built on a wide double lot, overlooking the 1st fairway of the Jack Nicklaus course.

A Luxury Home – Lifestyle is Everything at Reunion Resort!

President, EJ McNally knows the winning formula; “When we build on Reunion Resort’s golf lots, it’s all about that amazing view, and that drives almost every aspect of the home’s design.  For this particular home, that spacious pool deck has been created to offer a spectacular connection with the golf course and surrounding conservation.”

With a capacity of 30 or more guests, multiple gathering and entertainment spaces are a vital part of the home’s character.
Thanks to features like the futuristic ‘space’ themed home theater, a sports bar/game room and a further TV console ‘den’, the home’s guests have lots of indoor space to choose from.
When a large group of guests return home form the theme parks, we want them to be free to relax by the pool, have fun playing games, watch a great movie, or rest in privacy, however they choose.

Owners Enjoy Excellent Returns along with Great Family Vacations!

Reunion Resort’s unique zoning, means that homes can be placed into short term rental programs.
Although the theme park area has a number of vacation rental resorts, Reunion is the only community that offers the beautiful mansion style properties that are leading the way in the vacation rental market.
It’s not unusual to see the highest specification homes yielding 20%+ returns on investment.
The secret is to get the bedroom count at 8 or above, include fabulous outdoor living spaces and recreation areas and media rooms.
Guests appear to be fixed on booking bright, spacious contemporary themed homes, with themed bedrooms and imaginative play rooms leading the way for the best occupancy.

A Few Favorite Things!

Ryan McNally (McNally’s Vice President) – When guests take their first step inside, they are greeted with an amazing vantage point of what they are about to experience.
With open living and dining areas, and walkways with surprises at every step, there’s intrigue for all ages.
The home is a never ending spectacle and we are all extremely proud of the team and all those involved in bringing this one of a kind home to fruition.

Kevin Maw (McNally’s Marketing Manager) – The detailing throughout the entire home second to none, but my favorite single feature is that gorgeous bedroom turret.
The tasteful architecture, has just a hint of ‘Cinderella Castle’ to bring the magic to life.

Cesar Lopez (Top Villas Realty) – Every time I walk the home with a prospective client, the pool area quickly becomes the center of the discussion.
The pocket sliding doors to the family living area really do create a special atmosphere out on the lanai.  Perfect for making the most of the Florida weather!

The Owner – This is our second McNally home in our portfolio of properties and we appreciate the creativity, reliability and workmanship of the McNally team.  They care about us, and that makes a world of difference when you are building a luxury home, hundreds or thousands of miles away from your home town.

View and Book the Home Online!

Magical Vacation Homes manages this home on behalf of the owner, offering a full care and reservation service.
President and founder of MVH, Leigh Bateman has built his entire operation around the management of rental investment homes within Reunion Resort and surrounding communities.

The Most Popular Room in Florida? A Designer Pool Deck!

By Kev
At Jul 10, 2017

VBV_7775

Florida, once famed for sweet, juicy oranges.
Our Sunshine State has one enviable asset that few other states can even dream of;
Year round warmth and sunshine!

With so much to do in Central Florida, even the toughest of golfers and theme park fans succumb to the need to slow down, relax and laze around in the sparkling clear waters of the refreshing pool.
Pool Designs have evolved at lightning pace here in Central Florida thanks to the growing awareness that outdoor fun needn’t be something to sweat about!

While we proudly showcase one of our most recently completed vacation rental pool homes within Reunion Resort, near Walt Disney World, we thought we’d share some cool tips on what makes a perfect luxury custom home pool design!

  • Keep the pool size in proportion to your yard space and home to avoid overwhelming the home or the yard.
  • Leave enough paved space around the pool for pool furniture and sun beds.  Think about a typical family gathering by the pool to help you decide what’s enough space, then double it for friends and relatives too!
  • Pool shapes are fun to create, but rectangular is the most cost effective and can really look classy with the right detailing.
  • Pick the right color coating to keep things upbeat!  Dark surfaces can create a ‘murky and uninviting effect’.  Blue works well, and the lighter the color, helps you spot any water maintenance issues before its too late.
  • Simple running water makes the pool come to life.  Beware of excessively tall fountains and deep cascades.
    Soothing sounds are great but crashing waterfalls will be most unpopular when you want to drift off in the shade for an afternoon nap!
  • Sun shelves are a nice upcoming tend, offering a a place to rest your sun bed in the shallows.  Perfect for those that like the idea of being in the pool without the ‘wet!’
  • Little seats and ‘caves’ built into the pool sides are relatively inexpensive to create, but add tons of appeal for youngsters to play in.
  • LED lights have added a lot of interest to poolside evenings.  You can choose any cool you like to suit the evening mood, or slowly vary lights automatically throughout the night!
    The longer lasting LED lamps also reduce maintenance costs!
  • ‘Beach entry’ or ‘zero entry’ shallow ends, create a nice safe and predictable spot for younger kids to play.
  • Infinity edge pools were originally designed for sea front homes, to create a seamless view that joins the ocean and pool water.
    Although popular for inland pools, the effect is kind of lost, and the metal edges can reduce access around the pool.
  • Often overlooked, pool bathrooms can be invaluable.
    Kids need towels, toilet visits and showers, making the slippery indoor flooring a safety hazard if they are constantly dashing in and out of the main home!
  • Hot Tubs – Originally created for ‘cold climates’, hot tubs have even caught on in Florida!
    Great places to hang out if the temperatures drop a little, or kids want to warm up a little in between the sun and pool.
  • Fire pits are great for those topping up the degrees during those lovely Floridian winters.
    Gas units are great, but add a zip timer to the system to prevent burning gas all night!
  • General Pool Safety – Always follow the pool safety rules in your state and never leave children unsupervised for even the most briefest of moments.

Did it Really Take 22 People to Furnish A McNally Home?

By Kev
At Jun 30, 2017

A familiar story.
Owner arriving at the weekend, last minute finishing touches to lighting and trim.
The lovely smell of fresh paint.
Sun beating down over a brand new, pristine luxury pool.
It all looks so calm.
Until that is, the furniture arrives!

2017-06-22 10.51.00[1]

2017-06-22 15.54.58

With the precision of a marching band, the strength of a special forces unit and the creativity of an award winning design team, Masterpiece Interiors and the McNally construction team, combine forces with Reunion Resort’s finest contract specialists to create the most beautiful 12 bedroom golf view mansion yet.
In just 2 days, McNally’s 14,000 square foot, 12 bedroom, 17 bathroom house was transformed into an ‘owner ready’ dream home!

All of our combined efforts required 3 moving trucks, 10 movers, 3 furniture assemblers, 2 drape installers, 1 artwork installer, 2 glass top and mirror fabricators, the lead interior designer and 3 of her staff.
Controlled chaos… McNally style!

The final result is truly breathtaking and we are looking forward to the professional photoshoot (coming soon, after the owners have enjoyed their first ever stay in this stunning Reunion Resort custom mansion!)

More on this home soon, as we write about some of the gorgeous features of Reunion Resort’s latest and greatest luxury custom home.

Homes of Tomorrow Will Be Like This – (Part 2) – Growing Outdoor Spaces!

By Kev
At Mar 28, 2017

Outdoor Living Spaces will expand and integrate

One of the basic roles of any dwelling is to protect us from the environment.
So why are people exploring their balconies, gardens and yards more than ever?
3 Factors could explain the epic rise in the desire for better outdoor living spaces.

  • Better materials
    Creative flooring offers the opportunity to create the same natural looking surfaces, both indoor and outdoors.
    For years, designers have tried to integrate indoors and outside spaces, but only recently have the materials been affordable to us all.
    The result is a harmony that makes the yard a desirable, low maintenance place to relax in style.  A sheltered haven perhaps, or a safe play zone for kids to play.
  • Reduced yard space for new homes
    Lot sizes are generally reducing in size, and builders are maximizing the living spaces to suit the family needs.
    Once builders would simply grass the exterior and leave the yard design to you.
    Now that yards are smaller, their limits actually become an ‘enabling constraint’!  In other words, a challenge that works out for the better!
    It’s hard to sell a home with a useless tiny grass yard.
    But a super cool landscaped outside living area can easily be created, adding a wow factor without a jaw dropping expense.
    Fire pits, low energy lighting and stunning landscaping make that problem yard, the most desirable place in the home!
  • Owners spending more time at home
    With almost half of all US workers estimated to be working from home in 2017, there’s more demand than ever for homes to offer high quality leisure space.
    Telecommuting (as it is known) is on the rise, and workers are advised to designate areas of the home as ‘off limits’ during their work day.
    Without that discipline, the whole home would feel like an office, making those outdoor living spaces a vital element of the sense of freedom.
    Nothing beats the sounds smells and visuals of the great outdoors after a day behind the computer.

Planning consent is required for the most adventurous outdoor room designs, but the patience, effort and occasional compromise, can pay off.
Nothing can beat the sensation of enjoying the fresh natural light and air, with the benefit from carefully designed protection from the elements.

Let us build your amazing dream home, complete with an amazing outdoor living space, right here in Central Florida!
Our expertize and creativity has always been the key to our success and we’d like nothing more than to share it with your family.
