If you love to vacation in Florida, or want to become a seasonal resident, no doubt you’ve rented your share of condominiums, hotel rooms, Airbnbs and whatnot.

Maybe that strategy has worked for a long time. We also know the reverse: Airbnb horror stories, noisy condo and hotel neighbors, and the continual outlay of lodging cash.

Have we got a deal for you!

Assuming east central Florida is your favorite area, check out Plantation Bay Golf and Country Club in Ormond Beach. It’s a large master-planned community with tons of desirable amenities, and it’s close to Atlantic beaches, the Interstate 95 corridor and the greater Daytona Beach area.

Plantation Bay also offers new custom homes of all sizes, including club villas, or townhomes, perfect for seasonal residents, vacationers or anyone seeking a low-maintenance lifestyle with all the community trimmings.

Read on for why seasonal home shoppers should check out Plantation Bay’s club villas.

They have everything you need

People who enjoy regular Florida vacations, or “snowbirds” (as seasonal residents are popularly called), can find a lot to like about Plantation Bay’s villas. The attached one-or-two-level residences are low maintenance — forget grass cutting — and priced right.

Buy one and make it as turnkey as you like. Do it right, and all you have to do once you arrive for a week, month or season, is unlock the front door. And go to the grocery store.

You’ll also probably find some kindred spirits in Plantation Bay’s villa communities. These easy-living, easy-to-maintain residences attract single folks, retired folks, busy career folks, younger folks just starting families and downsizing folks who’re done with giant homes and want to enjoy a fun community more than they want to paint the house. Again.

They’re the right size

Our villa neighborhoods are perennially popular because they DON’T contain large homes. But they’re hardly two sizes-fit-all. There are nearly innumerable design tweaks you can make to the interior of your villa, and plenty of places outside front doors and back porches to beautify with fun yard art and container gardens.

Which villa might be right for you?

The one-level floor plan is 1,562 feet, with two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a spacious living area, kitchen and screened-in lanai. The owner’s suite is private, with two walk-in closets, and there’s a flex space off the living area that can be a third bedroom, office or separate dining room.

The two-level plan is similar in size. but larger — a tad over 1,700 square feet — with a third bedroom and bathroom upstairs.

Both villas also boast a two-vehicle garage.

They’re a great value

If you’re edging toward full-time Florida residency, Plantation Bay’s club villas are a great way to test those waters. You also get a valuable piece of real estate that earns equity.

Both types of custom-built villas at Plantation Bay are priced in the $200s, depending, of course, on exactly what you want. Another option is renting your villa when you’re not occupying it — or, renting it until you’re ready to occupy it.

Either way, an on-site property rental group at Plantation Bay will be happy to help.
