Our Mission is Gold Crown: Improvement Updates
(Reposted from our January 2016 Owner Newsletter)
Maintaining the Gold Crown standard begins with updating and improving your beautiful Resort.
We’re excited to unveil a multi-year project where we are fully updating every unit. In the past, we have updated parts of the unit, such as furniture or decor, but now we are bringing each unit up-to-date all at once, sometimes with a complete remodel where needed. See the infographics in this article to see what updates have reached your building:
In the living room you’ll notice beautiful new artwork with a more contemporary look and feel. Large or small, these beautiful works will make you feel right at home during your vacation.
As you take your first steps into your vacation condo, look down at the new carpet and tile. As we install this flooring, we’re including more updated soundproofing. It is our priority to make sure your vacation remains as relaxing as possible.
Another of our soundproofing efforts is fitting many of the doors, especially the lockout doors, with soundproof materials to create an oasis of peace and serenity
In order to manage costs and continue to update your Resort, we are renewing the case goods, such as dressers, head boards, night stands and coffee tables throughout the condos. We replace worn parts and paint them to make them good as new at a fraction of the cost of replacing them.
When it comes to your living room furniture, your comfort is our goal as we’ve added over 150 new sofas, love seats and lounge chairs in 2015 with more slated for this year. As you continue around the living room, you may notice changes to the lighting. Updating the lamps throughout the units is a long-term goal that will be rewarding in creating a beautiful atmosphere. These lamps and other lighting upgrades, such as the lighting in the hallways, will set the perfect mood for your vacation.
One way we’re improving the privacy of your condo is through window sheers. You asked for them in comment cards and this is just one of the many ways we show we’re listening. We’ve already installed window sheers on many of the condos and our goal is to finish all of the 1st floor condos by next summer. Soon, every building will be fitted with beautiful window sheers that grant privacy while letting in the natural light.
Slide your hand along the kitchen counter and feel the cool, smooth texture of these new granite countertops. Countertops have been replaced in over 50% of the kitchens and our goal is to have 200 of the 300 condos finished next year.
As you continue to explore the kitchen, notice the refacing of the cabinets. New cabinet doors are a great way to update the look of the kitchens. We think you’ll agree that the effort has paid off as they’re sleek and beautiful.
The lamps and hallways aren’t the only place you’ll find new and improved lighting. The kitchens will receive beautiful track lighting and chandeliers so you’ll have ample light to prepare delicious meals.
New backsplashes in the kitchens will make you feel right at home. We think you’ll love the new look.
Along with our initiative to help you feel more secure and at ease in your condo, we’ve added grab bars in each bathroom.
We’re adding granite and custom mirror surrounds to the vanities which look more refined and finished than ever before.
You may not see them, but you can enjoy the security and comfort that comes with staying up-to-date with water heaters. We’re expecting to install over 150 new water heaters in the upcoming year. We’re installing new hybrid heat pump water heaters that are 60% more energy efficient than older models, saving you energy and money!
Of course the most important part of your relaxing condo is the bedroom and the highlight of the bedroom is the bed, which is why we’re planning to install 188 deluxe Plantation Resort custom-made bed sets in the next year. This includes new mattresses, pillows and luxurious new bedding to complete your perfect vacation.
We completed the reroofing of buildings, 215, 219, 231 and 242. Roofs for buildings 217 and 223 are scheduled to be replaced in 2016.
Our ultimate goal is to create a place where you’ll always be happy to call home. As with most improvement efforts, many are on-going or may take 36 to 48 months to complete. We promise to keep you updated as we continue improving and renovating your Resort up to and beyond Gold Crown standards. Please enjoy these new improvements in person. We hope to see you soon at Plantation Resort. To make your reservation call 1-800-845-5039.
