Lakefront Condos Near Disney, With Short-Term Rentals Allowed
Prices Start at $399,000
Hello, Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center. I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer. Jackie and I just returned from a Caribbean cruise that was outstanding.
These days it’s not unusual to hear people complaining about the lack of service at restaurants, airlines and retailers. So, Jackie and I were pleasantly surprised on our cruise when we had multiple experiences of excellent service. Permit me to share one.
On our first day of the cruise, walking around the deck, we were greeted by a gentleman who introduced himself as the general manager of the ship. He was happy to chat with us and answer our questions.
During the conversation, I mentioned that it was Jackie’s birthday. He asked if we’d made dinner reservations at an onboard restaurant for her birthday celebration.
We told him we’d chosen the Korean barbecue restaurant, and he said we’d made an excellent choice. He wished us a nice day, and then we went our separate ways. We didn’t think much of the encounter other than he’d been very pleasant and friendly.
At dinner that night, we were surprised at the end of the meal when our waiter brought out a cake for Jackie’s birthday. The general manager we’d met in the morning had evidently called ahead and made the arrangements. What a delightful surprise that helped make the dinner even more special! In a world where excellent service is rare, we were impressed with his efforts.
Okay, let’s move on to today’s featured property. It’s a to-be-built condominium in Kissimmee/Orlando, Florida. See details below.
Sternon Fortune Star Condominium
Sternon Fortune Star Condominium will be a lakefront, seven-story building with 83 condominium units located just minutes from all the Disney theme parks.
The west units will face the lake and pool, while the east units will look out on the city toward the theme parks and may offer views of the nightly Disney fireworks.
Condo Amenities & Features
Sternon Fortune Star will have a resort-style pool and fully equipped fitness center. It will also have a dog park, barbecue pit area with grills, and lake access. The property will have 24-hour security monitoring.
The individual condos will feature open floor plans with private balconies offering views of the lake, pool and Disney fireworks. Residents will be able to control lights and temperature using a Smart home system.
Kitchens will have a quartz countertop, stainless steel appliances, and tile backsplash. Although furniture is not included in the price, buyers can choose to purchase a pre-selected package from City Furniture that includes everything you’d need: furniture, rugs, small appliances, artwork, curtains, linens, etc.
As an Investment
To be clear, Sternon Fortune Star is a condominium, not a condo hotel. However, it will offer owners total flexibility in what they do with their condo, which makes it unique.
Typically, condos limit rentals to 6-month or 12-month leases. And most of the condos and condo hotels in the Greater Orlando area have restrictions as far as rental management, dates used, and required furnishings. But Sternon Fortune Star is non-restrictive.
Owners can live in their condos full time or rent out their units as they see fit on a short- or long-term basis. They can use Sternon’s onsite management company, pick their own, or choose any of the rental platforms like Airbnb or VRBO if they wish to self-manage.
And here’s something else you should know. The Disney theme parks get more than 58 million visitors a year, while Orlando gets north of 75 million, making it the most visited area in the country. In other words, it’s a great place to own a rental property.
If you’ve been looking for a Florida vacation home that offers you the ability to generate rent revenue, offsetting the costs of ownership, and also has potential to appreciate, Sternon Fortune Star could be that perfect vehicle.
Minutes from Disney
Sternon Fortune Star will have an ideal location. It’s just 22 miles from Orlando International Airport.
It is within 10 minutes of the Disney theme parks, including:
- Magic Kingdom
- Animal Kingdom
- Hollywood Studios
- Typhoon Lagoon
- Blizzard Beach
It’s within 30 minutes of Universal’s and SeaWorld’s theme parks including:
- Universal Studios Florida
- Islands of Adventure
- Volcano Bay
- Epic Universe (opens summer 2025)
- Discovery Cove
Orlando also has many attractions beyond the theme parks as well as hundreds of world-class shopping and dining venues.
Prices from $399,000
The developer expects to break ground on Sternon Fortune Star within the next 30 days. Completion is planned for the latter half of 2023.
Buyers can choose from one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Preconstruction prices start at $399,000 and go up to $524,850.

You Could Be Cruisers Too
I mentioned our recent cruise at the top of this write-up. Jackie and I are experienced cruisers, so we hadn’t expected to be wowed, but we were! This was our first time on a Virgin Voyage ship. The accommodations, the food, the entertainment – all spectacular. We enjoyed it so much, we booked our next Virgin cruise before leaving the ship!
Virgin, as well as numerous other cruise lines like Royal Caribbean and Carnival, sail out of Miami and Fort Lauderdale. I can offer you many condos and condo hotels available in those cities in addition to Orlando’s Sternon Fortune Star.
You’d still have your Florida vacation home but with the option to sail to the Caribbean at any time. You can have your cake and eat it too!
Have a great day!
