Our pending offer is in a community called Bella Trae, south of Disney in Champions Gate. https://ourbellatrae.sentrywebsites.com/

Good luck to you and Mike!!!



If you are living there 7 months a year, wouldn't it be the other way around.....escaping the Florida heat to temperate Canadian summer?

Good luck on your offer!

We have really been thinking beach centric as we look for a place to retire (10 years or so) and for now rent. Never really considered near Disney because it is at least an hour to a beach.

However, the price difference is huge. I wish they had resort home buys like that nearer to Clearwater!

Yes, itís a really lovely community. We just fell in love with it, we made our realtor take us back there two times over our recent NYE trip!
The HOAs are a bit high but we feel like we are getting a lot for our money as itís maintenance free, the amenities are great and thereís lots of fun activities going on in the community.
I also like that we can walk to many of the shops and restaurants in Champions gate.
It would be wonderful to have you and Robin as neighbors! If you need the name of a good realtor PM me and Iíll give you the details .

We are very excited as we just got word today that everything went through. I retire from teaching in June so next winter we will begin our Snowbird lifestyle!

Wishing many good thoughts your way that everything turns out exactly as you hoped.

It was/is very gracious of you to allow us to read and learn so much as you research and purchase your future investment.

Thank you.
