Imagine waking up every morning in a community where luxury meets enchantment, where every day is filled with the magic of Disney. This is how you will feel when you own a home in Golden Oak, an upscale residential community nestled within the prestigious Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
“If you have not been inside the gates of Golden Oak yet, I will share the captivating features and unique amenities that make this community a truly extraordinary place to call home. Between the stunning homes and exclusive access to world-class amenities, Golden Oak offers a lifestyle unlike any other.” shares Karen.
Living in Golden Oak grants residents access to the private Summerhouse Club, a hub of indulgence and relaxation. Here, residents can enjoy incredible food served in the restaurant, unwind at the full bar, or savor a cup of coffee at the coffee bar. The Summerhouse Club also offers access to courtyards, a club pool, fitness facilities, and a family room, providing an ideal gathering place for residents. Moreover, residents have the privilege of Club Life, which includes full access to the Golden Oak Member Services team, theme park transportation, exclusive club events, extra ‘Magic Hours’, and much more.
Adjacent to Golden Oak is the renowned Four Seasons Resort, a five-star hotel that adds to the allure of the community. The Four Seasons Orlando features the “Tranquilo,” an 18-hole golf course, a full-service spa, meeting facilities, and excellent restaurants. Golden Oak residents enjoy access to all five resort pools and water experiences, fitness and sports facilities, and six luxurious and vibrant dining options, including a rooftop steakhouse. With concierge-style services such as in-home meal service and in-home spa and stylist services provided by the Four Seasons Orlando staff, residents can truly indulge in a lavish lifestyle.
Named after Walt Disney’s beloved Golden Oak Ranch in California, the Golden Oak community embodies the spirit and imagination of its legendary creator. Surrounded by the natural beauty of Bay Lake, the first phase of development is located just southeast of the iconic Magic Kingdom Park. Golden Oak captures the essence of luxury living intertwined with the enchantment of the Disney universe through meticulous design and attention to detail. Some residents have custom designed their homes in the look and feel of various Disney movies and characters. Karen explains,”If you can imagine what it would be like to actually live inside Cinderella’s castle…you can experience that fairytale life thanks to the talented designers that have made this dream a reality in one of the homes.” Every home is bespoke and there is certainly a design to fit every taste. If you prefer to leave the Disney characters at the park, you will find that some homes have more traditional decor, that is not as ‘theme park inspired’. Speaking of theme parks- another thing that sets Golden Oak apart is its unique vantage point, offering breathtaking views of the nightly fireworks extravaganza from the Magic Kingdom, allowing residents to enjoy the daily spectacle from the comfort of their own homes.
Golden Oak embraces the natural beauty of its surroundings, featuring multiple lakes and a meandering river that enhance the allure of lakefront living. Residents have the privilege of indulging in a range of amenities, including a clubhouse reminiscent of a picturesque Italian villa. This enchanting gathering place serves as the heart of the community, where neighbors come together to forge lasting connections. The clubhouse offers a variety of amenities, including a game room, a restaurant, and a pool, all accessible to residents free of charge. Every aspect, from the carefully curated scents in the air to the meticulous design overseen by project manager David Hulme, has been crafted to create an immersive and extraordinary experience.
Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort is not just a residential community; it’s a haven where luxury, elegance, and Disney magic intertwine to create a truly exceptional living experience. With its multi-million dollar properties, captivating views of the nightly fireworks, and an array of exclusive amenities, Golden Oak offers a lifestyle unlike any other.
