Reunion Resort Clubhouse Express Window

Reunion Resort Express Window

We recently tried the Express Window at Reunion Resort’s Clubhouse.
Having refueled after a fast paced morning round on the Watson Course, a quick tasty lunch was much in order before heading off to a business meeting.

Thankfully, the Express Window worked out perfectly for us.

We didn’t have to wait too long at all before our ‘Birdie’ (Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bagel) appeared right in front of us.
Hot coffee and a Granola Bar got us back into the real world as we packed our clubs into the car.

The Reunion Resort Express Window is a great idea that always seemed to obvious to think about!

Bear’s Den Club – Update

As the northern states dipped well below freezing this weekend, Reunion Resort still felt like a spring day, albeit a slight chillier than usual!
As I drove to Reunion Resort, I couldn’t help regret not putting an extra layer over my tee shirt as temperatures dipped under 60F for an unusual ‘cold snap’.

Compared to my native UK, a chilly day in Orlando still feels tropical though, and the Nicklaus course was comfortably busy with winter season golfers making use of ‘the warmer weather’.

Today’s flyover at Reunion took us along the cart path of the 18th fairway on the West Side.
The lots are laid out neatly and a spec home and the home owned by Jack Nicklaus are coming out of the ground.
The video shows the golf legend’s home at quite an advanced stage as City Homes work to get the home ready for occupancy this summer.

Real Estate in Reunion Resort is definitely headed in the right direction at the moment and the market is booming for new builds and resales!

 

Reunion Showcased at The International Builder Show!

McNally Homes featured in a special event at this year’s builder show.
Over 100 NAHB Builders Show guests subscribed to a half day tour of Central Florida’s finest custom homes, and Reunion Resort created a buzz amongst prospective buyers.

McNally showcased 2 luxury homes, one completed in 2014 and another large mansion that is currently under construction on Grand Traverse Parkway.
Great news for the resort in general as more and more attention is brought to the best vacation rental community in Central Florida.

The more progress that’s made in completing the luxury community, the more chances of the new clubhouse and amenities being completed.
(Although the Bears Den Club is progressing, the actual Nicklaus Course clubhouse is still not out of the ground yet.)

Find out more about the Builders’ Show visit to Reunion Resort at the McNally Custom Homes Blog.

 

 

New Executive Chef at Reunion!

1f29f21

Jake Brenchley joins the Reunion team as ‘Eleven Restaurant’s’ new Executive Chef.
Although Reunion food is always great, it’s nice to see some new menu items and ideas for a menu that has been around for a long, long time now.

Jake’s LinkedIn profile mentions his last role at Celebration’s Bohemian Hotel as Exec Chef.
We can’t wait to see his impact upon Reunion Resort’s beautiful eleven floor restaurant!

The introduction from Reunion Resort shows a hint of Jake’s culinary experience and creative artistry.  Both are something that Eleven diners will truly appreciate over the coming months!
We think this guy has what it takes to be at the top of Reunion Resort’s flagship restaurant.

Reunion Real Estate – One of the Best Performing 5 Bedroom Homes

For Sale – 5 Bedroom Golf View Home on Muirfield Loop, Reunion Resort
View Sales Details

One of the best moments of my life was viewing this amazing golf view home for the very first time at Reunion Resort, Orlando.
6 years ago, to the week, Britain was gripped with freezing cold weather.  Flights were delayed, and I had a small window to meet up with Carlos German at 591 Muirfield Loop.

Carlos and I built up a great working relationship over the previous months while on vacation at Reunion, as he searched for the right home for us in Reunion Resort.
This bank owned gem magically appeared and we placed an offer from the UK, based upon nothing more than Carlos’s pocket camera images and his enthusiasm.
To our surprise the offer was accepted, and the story began.

Telling our young kids at the time, that I was going to their favorite place without them (just before Christmas) did not go down too well.
Even more troubling, the British Winter meant that I had to view the home and get back before Christmas Eve with the family.
To cut a long story short, I made it just in time, with the news that we’d signed the deal.
Buying 591 was the greatest Christmas present ever and we’ve enjoyed every minute of our time there.

As many know, Reunion Resort is a deeply addictive place, and over time, our passion for life in Florida grew.  So much so that the inevitable family move took place in 2015.
The kids are in school at Lake Nona, and our family is in the process of settling into a home nearer that location.
The home rents like crazy, and has been a very profitable investment for us thanks to the home getting around 60% occupancy, but our residential base needs to be nearer Lake Nona.
The decision to sell our dream home in Muirfield was not easy, but I’m sure that the new owners will have as big an adventure here as we have.
For the blog?
It continues!
Even more so, thanks to my ongoing membership of the resort and continued involvement within Reunion on a day to day basis.

Information about the home can be found here on Zillow‘ s Real Estate page.

Bear’s Den Club – Jack’s House Update

jacks-house-bears-den-club-1

Reunion Resort’s stunning Nicklaus PGA course is as challenging as it is beautiful.
After 10 years, Jack’s involvement and love affair with Reunion continues to this day.
His recent visit, marked the beginning of a whole new adventure, not only for Mr Nicklaus himself, but for prospective owners and vacationers at the Bear’s Den Club, Orlando.

From our aerial shot above, many might assume that the long awaited West side clubhouse is finally under way.
Sure that should come some time soon, but the structure belongs to Jack Nicklaus and his family.
The golfing legend will bring his golden charm to Central Florida’s most prestigious golf and vacation community.

The very special 10 bedroom home will form a base for Jack and his Golden Bear team through parts of the year, but, in between times, avid golf fans may take an opportunity to relax in style, overlooking the 18th green of Jack’s very own home.  He will proudly rent you his private vacation home, for the ultimate bragging rights amongst your golf friends.
With a golf simulator, 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and grand finale views from the home’s pool deck and balcony terraces, you might want to bring your closest golf buddies along for the ultimate golf escape in Florida!

Prices and availability are not yet confirmed, but we hope to bring more news soon.
The BearsDenClub website can be found here and guests and owners can register for further updates.
In the meantime, Reunion guests and existing owners can watch the rapid progress of Reunion’s newest thing in Reunion Real Estate!

Lots of Cheating and Great Weather for a Perfect fund raiser!

We can’t confirm that every 4 ball sipped Tequila, bought Mulligans and recruited the assistance of professional golfers during a sun drenched golf competition at Reunion Resort last week, but we can shamelessly admit that our team used all of the tricks in the book to keep up with the pack!

Thanks to too much LOFT in our team (Lack Of ‘Freakin’ Talent), we even struggled to cheat enough and hold our pace with well seasoned golfers that included a fine selection of homeowners, contractors, property managers and realtors, all with one thing in common; Oraine Williams.

Hundreds of miles away, our much loved HOA leader is still fighting with his injuries (See previous blog posts).
Even an emotional tribute to Oraine and the fund raising team by Oraine’s mother in law included a nod to the irony of all of his devoted friends playing golf for him.  Golf, a sport that ‘he had no patience for!’

Dry yes were scarce as his family and colleagues relayed the severity of his ongoing situation, but, there was a clear admiration for so many people that pulled out all of the stops to create a perfectly run event on behalf of the Williams family.

If you could not make the event, and would still love to help Oraine’s family during his intense medical treatment, the GofundMe page is here.
While his insurance covered the essentials, it didn’t cover the expense of family travel and accommodation that is a huge burden to his family.
