Luxurious and Affordable Orlando Base
Submitted: June 29, 2012
Stayed: May 2012
Having stayed 3 times previously in similarly advertised (but more expensive) properties in the Orlando area, we were not sure what to expect.
First impressions were good, as the house stands in a small, gated community within the Reunion area (about 50 properties) and the grounds and gardens were immaculately kept. We travelled as a group of 5 adults, so found that the four large double bedrooms (including one sumptuous en-suite) were more than enough space for us and felt that the house could genuinely accomodate up to 10 people if utilising the large sofabed on the mezzanine. Although we spent most of our time out in the parks, the living area and kitchen facilities are of a very nice spec. Supermarkets and Drugstores are within an easy two minute drive.
On our first night, we had an issue with the Air-Con not cooling sufficiently, so made a call to the property maintenance provider. The issue was sorted without fuss in the morning and actually turned out to be our own misunderstanding of the controls.
During the fortnight, we spent two relaxing days by the community pool, which was about 50 yards away. Everything was really clean and the pool is of a good size with plenty of loungers etc. Because of the nature of this vacation (to and fro the parks etc), there were rarely more than two groups of people using the pool at any one time - very nice !
We had family staying in a different part of Reunion, who payed more than double for a similar property and on one evening they picked us up and we went to their place for some food and a few drinks. We rang the Reunion reception at about 11.30pm to book a taxi back to Assembly Court and were pleasantly surprised that a courtesy bus was soon there to collect us and take us to the door.
One little gem which is not mentioned on the website. The garage space doubles as a games room and contains a full-size Table Tennis and Pool Table, which we had some fun with.
We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone and must say that Guy was really good to deal with throughout.
