Virgin Holidays has opened a holiday home development in Florida and the new property has been developed in response to the growing number of British travellers who want to experience American suburbia, with the comfort of resort amenities.
Virgin Holidays research reveals that, when travelling abroad, one in five Brits (17%) want to experience living in local style accommodation and over a third (35%) of those heading across the pond say they would like to experience American suburbia.
In response to this demand, Virgin Holidays has announced the opening of Balmoral, a home development in Orlando, Florida, where visitors can immerse themselves in a quintessentially American suburban setting.
The development comprises of a selection of three, four, five and six-bedroom properties each featuring a unique look and design. The homes have their own private pool, patio and garage and there is a ‘social Clubhouse’ for residents.
The houses are located a short drive from Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and situated within a gated community for privacy and security. The development offers facilities to suit a range of travelers, including a communal pool and waterpark, lakes and parks, outdoor cinema, fully equipped gym, a bar and an on-site restaurant, that even offers a home delivery service.
David Geer, managing director at Virgin Holidays said: “The new Balmoral development brings together the best parts of being on holiday by experiencing life in the US paired with the comforts of being at home. Our research shows that a substantial amount of UK holiday makers like to live like a local while abroad and villa style accommodation offers just that. Balmoral is something special that everyone can enjoy, whether you’re a first time or a regular visitor to Orlando.”
