Feb. 12, 2018 – Lusant Ordoñez, co-founder and CEO of Zenodro Homes, a fully integrated real estate development company, is pleased to announce that the final residences have been released at the company’s The Retreat and Serenity communities, both offering ZEN-ECO (eco-friendly) vacation townhomes. Both offer serene views of a natural conservation area and peaceful waters.
Situated in the Four Corners region of Greater Orlando just 2¼ miles from Disney, the townhomes, part of Zenodro Homes’ The Dream Resort, six eco-friendly communities (The Retreat, Serenity, Hidden Forest, Tranquility, Sunrise Pointe and Hidden Lakes) are situated on 145 acres of nature. The homes are in the area off West 192, which is being called the new I-Drive (Disney is adding a new entrance). The Dream Resort is Orlando’s first modern vacation home community.
“The townhomes in The Retreat and Serenity create the perfect balance between both a sunshine lifestyle and nature itself,” said Ordoñez. “The booming trend of vacation home ownership means a second home that owners can enjoy when they want, and an active investment while they are away. Zenodro Homes offers top quality construction at some of the most desirable prices in the market.
“We pride ourselves on using only the latest building techniques and practices to create these high-end, modern, new construction vacation homes, perfect for the sunshine lifestyle in fabulous Orlando,” he continued.
Zenodro’s preferred property management company is Vacation Homes Collection, an entity of the CVC Group, the fifth-largest tour operator in the world and the largest in Latin America. Vacation Homes Collection operates 1,200 retail stores in Brazil, has 14,000 tourist agents, and over 100 distribution channels.
Zenodro Homes is currently self-funded; the company requires no bank loans for construction. Renters can use the residences about 75 percent of the time, and the owner can use it 25 percent of the time (90 days) in order to receive the rental income promised. Rental contracts are offered by Vacation Homes Collection. There are blackout dates.
Prices for townhomes in The Retreat and Serenity communities range from $229,000 to $249,000. A two-year rental contract is $52,608.
All of the townhomes have been designed with unique features including mature landscaping, and solar powered street lights along winding roads (Zenodro Homes are the first to feature off-the-grid streetlights). Each of these energy-efficient homes offers best building practices, standard lots and state-of-the-art, energy-efficient appliances. The homes use Corefill 500 injected foam block insulation, Icynene spray foam and smart thermostats.
A solar powered Eco-Club in each neighborhood, available to residents and their guests, offers amenities including a fitness center, game room, lounging areas, resort-style pool with sun bathing area, covered outdoor seating, hot tub and restrooms.
In both communities, living and kitchen areas are an open plan, to offer a feeling of sprawling space and comfort. Bedrooms and bathrooms boast a touch of high-end living in beautiful surroundings. Both were created with the entire family in mind.
