Halcyon Palms Luxury Residences, Orlando, Florida
Whole Ownership from $429,999
August 14, 2013
Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center. As you probably know, I make my home in South Florida and have lived here nearly all of my life. I’m used to seeing tourists visit my city. They like this area for the great weather, beautiful beaches and exciting nightlife. And I do too.
But when we want to get away on a little family vacation, Orlando, which is just a few hours drive away, offers us something completely different, which is why we return frequently.
We love all Orlando has to offer – from amazing theme parks and water parks to world-class dining and outlet shopping. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a new Orlando property to feature. But I’m pleased to say I have one for you today with a variety of ownership opportunities.
Gated Community Near Disney World
Halcyon Palms Luxury Residences is a private gated community, in the midst of a nature reserve. Despite its tranquil surroundings, it’s only a short 15-minute drive from Disney World.
The ideal second home, it offers large seven-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom detached villas for just under $600,000. Yes, I said seven bedrooms! That means when you vacation, you can bring the whole family and all their friends. (Smaller families may wish to consider the 4 bedroom models.)
Or, if you have a really small family, mine can be packed and ready to visit you on short notice. I call dibs on the master bedroom.
These villas are luxuriously appointed with screened private pool and Jacuzzi. There are many other great amenities at the owners’ clubhouse. And, whole ownership allows you to vacation in sunny FL or live here all year long.
But what makes Halcyon Palms Luxury Residences so unique is that if they prefer and choose to use it for six weeks or less per annum, they have another terrific option to consider.
Owners may give back their unused weeks to have the onsite management rent them out. And, if they elect to give back 46 weeks for the developer to rent their unit, investors will receive 50% of the gross rental income (less costs) and a minimum 7% return for the first 5 years from completion and a minimum 8% for the following 5 years.
Again, this is a minimum, as the return is not capped. If the return is higher than the minimum, owners will be paid a higher return.
If you choose to use your Florida home for more than 6 weeks the developer will reduce your return by 0.5% for any additional weeks used. The options are so flexible and unique, making this a stress free and enjoyable method of buying your vacation home.
For Halcyon Palms owners, management handles all maintenance, cleaning and upkeep of the villa.
Halcyon Palms isn’t just the name of a neighborhood. It’s a resort community complete with a full complement of amenities. There will be an owner’s clubhouse with many great features including:
- Business center
- Community swimming pool & deck
- Fitness center
- Outdoor fitness area with soccer field
- Mountain bikes available for use
Additionally, the resort will offer 24/7 security and daily cleaning service. Your villa, as well as all the resort’s amenities, will be fully managed on your behalf. It’s hassle-free, vacation home ownership!
Luxuriously Furnished Villas
The large villas are lavishly appointed and fully furnished in a contemporary style to a very high standard. Features include a magnificent open formal lounge, spacious living area, dining area, fully-equipped kitchen, seven large bedrooms and a large bath in the master bathroom.
The luxurious maple wood kitchens have granite counter tops, while the bathrooms in the home are fitted with power showers, high quality baths, dual vanity sinks with marble counter tops and expansive wall-sized mirrors.
The homes have all of the modern conveniences including Wi-Fi and cable TV in each bedroom, as well as an IPod docking station.
The rear of the home opens up to a covered lanai containing a large screened swimming pool and deck, Jacuzzi, and a fitted grill, making it perfect for pool parties with friends.

- Indoor interactive entertainment complexes like DisneyQuest and Fun Spot
- 3rd most popular destination in U.S. for conventions after Las Vegas & Chicago
- Orlando International Airport is 3rd busiest in U.S. (48 U.S. and 29 international destinations)

I don’t want to go on for too long, but really there’s so much I could tell you about Orlando. My sister, a Miami native, even moved her family there permanently and loves it.
The last time my family went to Orlando we got together with her family for dinner and then stepped outside the restaurant for a couple of quick family photos. We took lots of great shots of the kids (we each have two) and various combinations of the families.
But the photo I like best is one my sister snapped of my family with my brother in law in the background. I didn’t even realize what he’d done until I got home and looked at the pictures. He’s always good for a laugh. And like I said, whenever we go to Orlando, we have a ton of fun.
The family and me in Orlando, plus my goofy brother in law, who joined our family photo without my knowledge.
