With recent statistics revealing that Orlando’s family holiday home rental market is set to rise 6.1 per cent per month this year due to its growing leisure and hospitality industries, The Grove Resort and Spa is introducing its latest ‘all you could want’ holiday home destination project in the heart of Disney.

The Grove Resort & Spa is designed to offer UK investors and year-round travellers a development that integrates all amenities and leisure facilities, and is fully and professionally managed by Benchmark Hospitality International, the hotel operator with resorts under management around the world.

The development is approximately five minutes’ drive from Disney World’s west entrance and 40 minutes southwest of the Orlando International Airport. It is being designed as one of the world’s premier holiday destinations with recreational and leisure activities, suitable for both adults and children. This family-friendly destination can be enjoyed by holidaymakers year-round due to the optimum weather conditions in Florida.


The development is surrounded by significant tourist hotspots including Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, Gatorland and Wet’n Wild Water Park as well as various museums and supermarkets.

Once the development is ready for occupancy in November 2016, the resort, the Homeowner’s Association (HOA) and the rental programme will be managed on-site by Benchmark Hospitality International, with more than 30 years’ experience in the development, management and marketing of upscale resorts, hotels and conference centres worldwide. This company will guide investors through the purchase every step of the way and will provide them with caring after sales support.

Benchmark will coordinate and oversee all aspects of the rental programme on behalf of property owners, including sales and marketing of the resort and the units, servicing the guests during their stay, cleaning and maintenance of the units, and compliance with state and county licensing and requirements. Because its management team is located onsite, they are available 24/7 to take care of both owners’ and guests’ needs, providing maximum efficiency and cost-effective services while maintaining a high standard of quality.

The resort, which will include over 878 two and three bedroom units and a full offering of amenities, restaurants and leisure facilities, is due for completion in November 2016

David D’Ambrosio, director of operations for the developer, says: “Increasingly, more tourists are opting for resorts with full package facilities on-site to keep the whole family occupied during their holiday. It’s clear from the state of the overseas property market that UK buyers have a strong interest in second homes abroad, so we’re confident in putting forward The Grove Resort and Spa as a strong proposition for both investor and leisure buyers. Since we’re anticipating more than 64 million visitors annually, this project has some very exciting opportunity prospects to bring to the international market.”

Investors can purchase a variety of two bedroom/two bathroom units (averaging 1,400 square ft) starting at $264,000, and, three bedroom/two or three bathroom units (averaging 1,540 square ft) from $309,900.

The developer is paying 12 per cent commission to participating brokers and real estate agents, and has a developer unit-leaseback programme ensuring investors, as well as leisure buyers, experience a positive economic benefit from ownership.

The Grove Resort and Spa is designed as a 110-acre resort community surrounded by a natural park system with over 20 acres of lakes and ponds, hiking trails, bicycle paths, and electric vehicle paths. Guests can enjoy fishing from the dock surrounding the lake or ride in a canoe, kayak or electric motor boat.

Inside, the development features a wide range of facilities: multiple bars; restaurants; a convenience store market and a deli; a spa and fitness centre; children’s activity centre and arcade; lagoon pool; lazy river with poolside food and beverage service; a flow rider surf simulation pool; luxurious lobby with concierge service; a 7,500 square foot meeting/function space which accommodates up to 300 people, making it ideal for weddings, family reunions, sports team functions, corporate events etc.

A better quality of life

Adults can also enjoy their own area that has three large pools, a hot tub and private cabanas, set apart from the action of the water park, providing a more relaxing and tranquil setting. All these amenities are aimed at offering guests a better quality of life just a few minutes away from Disney.

The optional rental programme offered at The Grove displays a feasible opportunity to generate revenue to help offset the cost of ownership. Turnkey rental management services are provided, making the process effortless for property owners.
