Surrounded by magnificent oak and cypress trees, Grande Vista Golf Club sits on the headwaters of the Florida Everglades ecosystem. Marriott's Grande Vista is a Marriott Vacation Club timeshare resort on International Drive, Orlando, Florida. The resort golf community has 1,616 guest studios and one, two and three-bedroom golf villas in 24 Mission-style buildings.
Grande Vista opened in March 1997 and has a nine-hole golf course designed by Ron Garl and a training center. The 2,300-yard, par 32 gem possesses an element of challenge for the avid golfer – but was created with the family in mind to encourage learning and development.
Situated on 164-acres, this timeshare golf neighborhood is home to 24 buildings, four swimming pool areas, several restaurants and bars, a convenience store, also known as "The Marketplace," a lake, a fitness center, and a spa. Construction of the resort's remaining golf villas called the "West Village," was formally completed in 2006 and included a new pool area and a bar and grill restaurant called the Copa Loka Bar and Grill.
With a stay at Marriott's Grande Vista in Orlando, guests will be within a 10-minute drive of Aquatica and Pointe Orlando. The 4-star condominium resort is just 4.1-miles from Orange County Convention Center, 6.7-miles from the Disney Springs Area, 2.5-miles from Sea World Orlando, and 15-miles from Disney World. Epcot Centre and theme park – just off Epcot Drive – is also close by.
The golf home timeshare properties include fully and well-appointed one, two and three-bedroom golf villas. Each has a separate lounge and dining area, a well-fitted kitchen and spacious master bedrooms with large bathrooms and whirlpool tubs. Each unit has large screen televisions, private balconies looking out over the lake, and immaculate fairways of the resort's gardens. Aside from the four heated outdoor swimming pools at the resort, homeowners can also use the volleyball and tennis courts. A dedicated running trail completes the outdoor amenities at the club.
Orlando is not just famed for its theme parks. The area around the Grande Vista Golf Club community also has a myriad of dining options for holiday makers to choose from, including everything from fast-food to fine dining with classic Italian to sushi. Residents can also dine at The Grill at Grande Vista, order in from Pizza Hut or create a home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients from The MarketPlace.
The Marriott Vacation Club's Headquarters is on Westwood Boulevard about a mile away from the golf community. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection also awarded the resort Green Lodging certification and Grande Vista Golf Club has won Southeast/Caribbean Resort of the Year awards several times.
Those who want to be a timeshare owner can create a reservation for a rental stay at a Marriott Vacation Club resort and apply the villa rental costs toward the ownership purchase.
