WEST ORANGE, N.J. – October 14, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — For people who are lucky enough to travel to warmer climates for a few months during the cold New Jersey winters, the one thing that often mars an otherwise pleasant getaway is the feeling that their home is unattended and unprotected. Even for people who hire an expensive security firm to monitor their home, it’s not easy to shake the feeling that while they are laying on a beach in Florida, something could be wrong with their home in the Garden State.

Fortunately, that is not an issue for residents of Vizcaya. Residents who choose to relocate to balmier locales can relax knowing that their home is protected by 24-hour gated security and a full-service concierge is only a phone call away. Many residents have used the concierge to retrieve and fax important documents to them, water their plants or to otherwise check up on their home while they are away.

“Our incredible concierge staff here at Vizcaya is a huge stress-reliever for residents leaving for an extended vacation, especially for those who decide to relocate for the winter,” said Lisa Macchi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes, the Developer of Vizcaya.

“When you depart, you can rest assured that you are leaving your home in good hands. Of course, the majority of our residents live here year-round and there are a number of amenities and services at Vizcaya that make winter living a pleasure. Many residents say they feel like they are living in a resort, with amenities such as the indoor pool, spa rooms and fitness center providing a comforting touch in the winter.”

Vizcaya residents who live at the community year-round say they too enjoy the peace of mind of having a home in a gated community. Even if they only leave town for a few days a few times a year, knowing that their home will be cared for saves time and energy. It can be especially convenient for residents planning extended vacations to destinations like Europe, because they already have a lot of detailed plans to keep track of. Having one less thing to worry about makes the trip more enjoyable.

No matter what time of year it is, residents of Vizcaya enjoy unparalleled amenities and services at one of New Jersey’s most desirable addresses. Popular amenities include Vizcaya’s spa, sauna, steam room, massage rooms, fitness room, yoga/aerobics room, tennis court and heated indoor and outdoor pools.

Community game rooms, parlors and terraces in the main building provide residents with hours of additional entertainment.

White glove services at Vizcaya include complimentary valet parking, gated security and 24-hour access to a concierge, who can help residents with everything from dinner reservations to dry cleaning. The grounds are immaculately kept by staff members and emergencies such as snowstorms are dealt with quickly, efficiently and with the convenience of residents in mind.

Vizcaya is located in the picturesque, hilltop town of West Orange, a short drive away from several gourmet restaurants, local shops, boutiques, parks and entertainment venues. The acclaimed Paper Mill Playhouse and the Short Hills Mall are both nearby. The South Mountain Reservation and Turtle Back Zoo are just around the corner. Recreational opportunities abound with municipal and county parks, private and public golf courses, and preserved natural woodlands found throughout the 12 mile town.

Manhattan is a short 30-minute car ride away, while New Jersey Transit rail stations are nearby in Millburn and South Orange.
