Large Vacation Homes – Reunion’s Success Story!

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.

Reunion Resort – A Unique, Luxurious Resort & One of a Kind!

At Dec 13, 2016

A good first impression can work wonders.

—  J. K. Rowling  —

First impressions run deeply and often influence future decisions more than any other stage of an experience.
When guests enter the magnificent Reunion Resort, a magical bond is inevitable.
Beautiful landscaping, irresistible golf courses and stunning luxury vacation homes are bound to impress immediately.
There’s no illusion, that Reunion Resort is a destination of choice for affluent owners and their guests.
The beauty of Reunion Resort is instantly apparent, but the reason for the communities surging popularity requires a little more explanation.

Reunion Resort Quick Facts

  • Located in Kissimmee, FL
  • 5 miles from Walt Disney World – Approximately 12 minutes’ drive
  • Communities generally have a requirement not to rent for less than 7 month terms.
    Reunion was conceived with short term rentals in mind, making it completely unique.
  • 3 PGA Golf courses – Watson – Palmer – Nicklaus
  • 10 resort pools and 5 acre water park
  • Tennis facilities
  • 4 main restaurants/bars
  • Located within easy access of I-4 and 192 routes
  • Good local stores and restaurants

Reunion Resort – Short term/long term rental
No other community within Central Florida permits owners to rent their houses by the week.
Reunion on the other hand, benefited from special zoning that creates a unique opportunity for homes to be purpose built for short term rental investment.
In fact, it would be very difficult to identify any luxury community elsewhere in the USA that has that element of flexibility.
Owners can use the home as a private second residence, place it into a lucrative rental program, or make the community their primary residence.
Of course, there’s freedom to cycle a home back a forth between short term and long term rental.  That flexibility is perfect for owners that are planning to relocate or travel more frequently to Florida.
(With Walt Disney World on your doorstep, owners are never short of friends and family dropping by!)

High quality real estate
Many developments claim to be unique and ‘the best’.
Reunion Resort is often marked as such, but, arguably with good merit.
With a sprawling road network, the golf courses from the ‘master plan’ for Reunion Resort.
Homes enjoy golf course and conservation views rather than ‘back to back’ outlooks from the pool decks.
Within reason, owners can work with one of 5 Reunion approved builders to create highly customized homes within the resort.
Lots can be purchased as single lots from 35ft to 55ft wide, typically 160ft deep.
Many of the larger homes are situated on ‘double lots’ to create a mansion like elevation.
Homes range from 2700sqft to 30,000sqft under air.

Rental Program – ROI
Although returns on investment vary, owners of larger, luxurious homes are experiencing ROI well in excess of 25%.
Emphasis on décor, home theaters, games rooms and themed bedrooms are key to maximum return.
A number of reputable property managers, interior design companies can be recommended prior to ensure that the home gets the greatest possible occupancy and subsequent returns.

High Rental Returns – At Very Competitive Nightly Rates
A couple staying at the Four Seasons Orlando resort will average $300/nt in low season for a very basic hotel room.  Often families will book 3 or 4 rooms for a family vacation.
In Reunion Resort, guests can rent the highest specification mansions, complete with bowling alley, home theater, games room, Turkish bath, huge pool decks and spacious gourmet kitchen for less $84/nt per person in low season when fully occupied with guests.
Far more freedom, space, privacy and fun than the hotel suite.
Guests tend to relax and enjoy the home in between park visits, providing a better vacation experience, and repeat bookings.

Why is Reunion Resort so Unique?

  • Reunion is so close to Walt Disney World, you can enjoy the daily fireworks from the rooftop restaurant within the resort.
    Real estate simply won’t be developed again near Disney World on such a grand scale.
    Travel time into the theme parks is a key factor for vacationers, and Reunion Resort does not disappoint.
  • 3 PGA Golf courses not only set the scene for the community, but they offer a golfer’s paradise all year round.
  • VIPs and wealthy guests seek out Reunion Resort for their vacations and the peaceful, private resort offers privacy to all.

What are the risks of investing in Reunion Resort?

Q: Will Reunion be over supplied with luxury homes?
A: The larger homes at Reunion Resort are in extremely high demand.  Even if the larger lots were all built out, the growing awareness of the luxury mansion style homes is growing.   The huge potential domestic market in North America is becoming increasingly aware of a product that has been very popular with UK and Canadian visitors.
Annually the region is currently experiencing 3% growth on tourism figures of 60 million.

Q: What size home is best for vacation rental home investors?
A: Due to a limited supply, the 8 bedroom and above homes are experiencing the highest occupancies and best nightly rental rates.

Q: What special features make a difference to bookings, rates and occupancy?
A: Great finishes, modern decor, themed rooms, great media rooms and home theaters, attractive and fun outdoor living spaces, games rooms and play areas.  An imaginative and creative approach will reward owners

Q: If I put in the best possible finishes and materials, will I get a good payback?
A: Great finishes are important for rental guests and owners, but we always advise spending wisely when we make selections.
