ORLANDO, Fla. — Central Florida’s The Melrose Corporation recently secured the contract to manage Mattamy Homes’ Solara Resort community that includes more than 900 homesites in a mix of single-family and townhomes, all designed for the short term vacation home market.
Solara Resort will feature a fully staffed clubhouse and a comprehensive resort-style amenities package.
The Melrose Management Partnership, the association management arm of The Melrose Corporation, will oversee the HOA operations and community management for Solara.
“We are delighted to partner with Mattamy on this exciting venture,” Jack Hanson, president of The Melrose Management Partnership, said. “We are immensely proud to provide management services as well as interactive and entertaining lifestyle programs and events for Solara Resort.”
Melrose Lifestyle Services, the lifestyle and amenity management arm of The Melrose Corporation, will supervise the 11,000 square foot clubhouse and associated amenities and run the community lifestyle programs.
“Solara Resort is a great addition to Central Florida’s unique short-term housing rental market,” Bill Fife, director of Melrose Lifestyle Services, said. “Solara’s state-of-the-art facilities combined with our comprehensive programming experience give us an exciting opportunity to work with Mattamy Homes to provide a fully customized plan for the community’s owners, renters and prospective buyers.”
Located near the Four Corners and Walt Disney World area, Solara will cater to the growing vacation home rental sector in an already robust real estate market. The vacation home rental market is expected to be valued at $169.7 billion globally by 2019.
“We are extremely excited about the growth potential of the Orlando market, as we believe that people will continue to look to Central Florida as a place to live and raise a family, own a second home or retire to,” Alex Martin, Mattamy’s Orlando division president, said.
