How to Take a Virtual Tour of Estrella

We’re excited to offer you a virtual reality-enhanced way to experience Estrella! (And for you to get a closer look at the model homes you’re most interested in.) Wander your way through our sprawling residents clubs, StarSplash WaterPark, Star Tower, model homes, and more—from wherever you’re sitting right now.

Traditionally, the home shopping experience starts off with previews of the floor plans and 2D photography of a home. This makes it difficult to imagine yourself living in the space. In order to get a true sense of the home, you would need to visit the community in person to walk through the home, which may be difficult if you live in a different city or state. Nowadays, with Matterport’s industry-leading 3D technology, any internet-connected computer, mobile device, or virtual reality (VR) headset will provide a 3D immersive experience with a 360-degree, room-by-room look of everything Estrella has to offer! That’s right, from model homes to amenities you can save time and tour at your convenience from the comfort of your own home. And when you’re ready to see Estrella in person, be sure to make our New Home Information Center your first stop.

Explore all your ways to tour right here, where you can also sign up to get your FREE pair of Estrella Google Cardboard VR tour glasses.
