Calabay Parc is one of the most elegant, stylish and celebrated vacation communities in the Disney Area. It is a highly exclusive development, which nestles quietly amongst conservation woodlands and orange groves. Its impressive entrance is easily distinguishable with its towers either side of the road which are sounded by brightly coloured flowers and shrubs.
It is ideally and conveniently located on US Highway 27 (north) between the junction of Interstate 4 (junction 55) and Highway 192. Travelling distances to all the major attractions are excellent with Walt Disney World being only 12 miles away, taking around 15 minutes to get there. As for the airports it is no more than 25 minutes easy drive from Orlando International Airport, 40 minutes from Sanford and 55 minutes from Tampa. The whole community is designed and set up for ‘short-term rentals’ all homes have private pools and are finished to an exceptionally high standard. All the homes were planned, designed and decorated so that no two homes next to each other are the same, you therefore get a good mix of all types of homes, some two storey some one. Also planting was carefully considered and the results are well maintained and elegant plants and shrubs throughout the whole community.
Calabay Parc is also an immaculately maintained and peaceful community, within the community there is a great ‘Tots Play Area’ comprising of swings, climbing area, slide and even a place for adults to sit in the shade. Just outside the Tots area is also a Volley Ball Court for those of you who have some energy left after returning from the parks !
Along HWY 27 there are excellent facilities. For grocery shopping there is a Publix two miles away with a Wal-Mart 5 miles away. Both are placed near many other smaller shops most of which are food outlets such as, Beef-O’Gradys, Applebees and liquor stores. Also along Hwy 27 there are many places to each such as Cracker Barrell, McDonalds, China Buffet, Beef-O’Bradys, Dominos, and also many takeaways with smaller Chinese, Indian and Italian options.
The area also boasts a brand new shopping complex called “The Posner Centre” which is well under way being built; there currently is a Super Target, Belt (clothing / home ware) and Books-a-million to mention just a few. Due to open in August 2008 is a JCPenny along with many smaller outlets too many to mention! This new shopping complex will also have a bowling alley and a multi-plex cinema. The Posner Centre can be found on the exit/entry section of Junction 55 and HWY 27 – it is and will be well worth a look.
Well I hope this gives you an insight of Calabay Parc and what it has to offer, hope you have a fabulous stay in the ‘Sunshine State’.
