ORLANDO, FL–On the heels of the successful sales launch at LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Hilton Head, Minto Communities and Margaritaville Holdings announced that the Feb. 24 grand opening event for LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Daytona Beach’s model homes drew another record crowd of more than 2,600 interested home buyers. Guests enjoyed a lively street party complete with refreshments, a steel drum band, stilt walkers, games and giveaways. In addition, there were samples from the recently opened LandShark Bar & Grill in Daytona Beach.
“Latitude Margaritaville is a brand-new concept that is redefining active adult living,” said Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock. “These dynamic 55-and-better communities are designed specifically for people looking to kick back and relax, living the Margaritaville lifestyle. There is nothing else like Latitude Margaritaville, and interest has been phenomenal. More than 100,000 prospective buyers have registered to receive more information. We look forward to seeing this continue as we expand the Latitude Margaritaville concept into new areas.”
“Latitude Margaritaville is all about having fun in a place you’ll love to call home,” said Jim Wiseman, president of Margaritaville development. “There’s also a great sense of community here. It’s amazing to see the friendships that have already been formed between future neighbors. It’s a true lifestyle community.”
The nine new model homes at LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Daytona Beach capture the “no worries” tropical vibe of the community with three distinct villa and single-family home collections – the Caribbean, Beach and Island. These include four new villa home models – the Antoigua, Barbuda, Jamaica and Nevis, which range from 1,503 to 1,862 square feet under air. All include two bedrooms, den or hobby room, two baths, covered lanai and two-car garage. Villa pricing starts at $235,990.
Five different single-family home models now available for touring include the Coconut, Parrot, Breeze, Aruba and Trinidad. Single-family homes range from 1,684 to 2,564 square feet under air and feature two to three bedrooms plus den, two to three-car garages, two to three-and-a-half baths and a covered lanai. Pricing for single-family homes starts at $277,900.
LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Daytona Beach’s easy-care homes feature open, airy spaces that maximize natural light and flow into uniquely designed outdoor living spaces perfect for enjoying the Daytona Beach climate. These homes are ideally designed for relaxing, entertaining and comfortably accommodating houseguests. Spacious master suites include large walk-in closets and raised height vanities in the master bath. The homes will offer many premium features that are often considered upgrades in other communities.
LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Daytona Beach is currently selling homes in its first phase of 378 home sites. Current plans call for 3,000 homes, with the possibility of a future expansion for a total of 6,900 homes at community buildout. In November, more than 300 hopeful residents camped outside the community’s sales center overnight to be among the first to place deposits on their future homes in paradise.
“What I really love best about the Margaritaville lifestyle is just the oneness we have with all of the community. It’s just an amazing source of friends. It’s going to be great for everyone to be neighbors – being out and enjoying life,” said Scott Casto, a new home owner at Latitude Margaritaville Daytona. “We can’t wait to get out in the beautiful weather and enjoy the activities whether it be cards, shuffleboard or pickleball. It’s just going to be amazing that we can have all this without having to go outside the community. We’re all ready to party and have a great time!”
Daytona Beach’s sister property, LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Hilton Head, also celebrated the successful grand opening of its sales center with three consecutive days of events from February 16-18. The festivities welcomed a spirited crowd of close to 1,000 prospective home buyers for tours and a sneak peek at the community’s exciting lifestyle.
