Tampa builder Minto Communities is adding new vacation homes to its 500-home resort near Disney World in Orlando, reports Orlando Business Journal editor Anjali Fluker.

The company will begin construction on four new vacation home buildings in the Festival community of ChampionsGate. The eight-unit buildings will be designed with the already popular Elation floor plan, a fully furnished model that features homes ranging from three to 10 bedrooms with screened-in lanais and an optional cabana bath and plunge pool.

“Every aspect of Festival has been thoughtfully planned to create a resort community unlike any other,” said Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock, in a prepared statement. “Our buyers from the U.S. and abroad have the peace of mind of owning a vacation home managed by a leading property management company and the option of placing their home in an international vacation rental program. With the option of short-term rentals, Festival represents an incredible income-producing opportunity.”
