Don’t Miss this Vacation Retreat at the Parade of Homes

Posted February 19, 2018 by christain

This villa is a real treat for anybody who loves the polished home design.  With 5 beds and 3773 square feet of living space, this house has got enough room for anybody.  It also comes with 6 bathrooms and a den in case someone has to take their work with them on vacation.

The villa has a modern color scheme and design while still going for that “natural” feel.  You can see the natural look easily just by looking on the outside of the house.  I mean the garage is wood stained for Pete’s sake!   But you can also play in the huge backyard.  Or if you’re worried about getting dirty there’s a covered balcony with enough chairs to sit the entire family.  Perfect place for everyone to just sit around and share stories when it gets dark.

This house is all a part of the Arcadia Vacation Resort.  The resort comes complete with a lazy river, pool, spa, and a waterslide for the whole family!

And after the whole family has had their waterpark fun, the resort has even got a clubhouse to dry off in and play games.

But if that’s not enough for you, the vacation resort also has a pickleball and volleyball court for all your summertime fun!  This all is just a part of that St George summer fun.  I guess there’s a reason they say it’s easy in St Geezy.
