Experience Kissimmee shares vacation home data indicating growth in the sector.
Kissimmee, Fla. (Feb. 25, 2021) – With the changing travel landscape, families are looking for private and safe accommodations now more than ever. Located in Central Florida, Kissimmee has 50,000 vacation homes, with a portion being larger-than-life estates that have hosted athletes, musicians, and many celebrities. Picture a 10-bedroom home with a lazy river, game room, movie theater, and a golf course view. This is what vacationers can find in Kissimmee.
This multi-million-dollar industry generates hundreds of jobs in Kissimmee and attracts investors from around the world. In the last five years alone, Osceola County has had a 1,062.2 percent growth in the vacation property sector, becoming the fastest growing vacation home market in the United States.
Kissimmee’s vacation homes initially attracted visitors because of the destination’s ideal location, steps away from world-famous theme parks. But there are many more perks that keep visitors coming back. Kissimmee’s vacation homes are located inside gated resorts that offer exclusive amenities to guests. Reunion Resort & Golf Club, one of Kissimmee’s most coveted locations, sits on a property of 2,300 acres. It features 10 pools, waterpark, spa, salon, fine dining options, and three signature golf courses designed by Nicklaus, Palmer, and Watson.
Jeeves Florida Rentals, a popular vacation home management company, refers to their mansions as Elite Homes. The Elite Homes go beyond square footage; they are custom built, with a high level of interior finish, and outstanding amenities and theming.
“We have seen throughout the pandemic that these homes did not lose occupancy and have actually found a new market awareness,” shares Sharon Harley, CEO of Jeeves Florida Rentals. Jeeves Florida Rentals projects growth in revenue for their Elite Homes services by 35 percent.
Guests of Kissimmee’s luxurious mansions can have private chefs, in-home spa services, and, in some homes, a personal home manager. Kids can immerse in themed bedrooms with secret entrances, princess carriages or pirate ships as beds, and even rooms with treehouses and slides. Adults and children can enjoy elaborate in-home game rooms featuring arcade games, bowling alleys, rock climbing, and even laser tag arenas.
Isole Villas, a 15-suite mansion, is one of the homes that offers personal home managers, as well as a multi-level saltwater pool, theater, and boardroom. Inside, guests can find extravagant art displays with grand pianos, custom furniture, and themed décor.
