About Vicky

Both my husband and myself run our own business within the Security Industry. We have 3 girls aged 11, 8 and 1 years old.

My husband is a keen golfer, playing off of scratch and enjoys the Orlando area for its hundreds of golf courses.

I enjoy the Sun, Shopping and enjoying a relaxing glass of wine! Reunion suits us all well in all these areas.

Our property in Reunion has been a lifelong dream, this truly is a second home rather than a vacation rental house. Hopefully, one day, we hope to retire to or US dream home.

Vicky purchased this house in 2012

Why Vicky chose Kissimmee

After many years of visiting the Disney area, we had tried several different resorts. We were lucky that family friends of ours live within the area and helped us find our dream home. After much homework we soon realised that Reunion was far more exclusive and beautiful than any other area we had ever visited. We then set our sights on Reunion Place, we wanted this particular home as the views are so special. Looking over the Tee you get a full view of the hole, not just part of it, my husband is a scratch golfer and this location is his heaven! Whilst not interested in golf myself I could still appreciate the Beauty of the scenery, georgous sun sets and wonderfully manicured grounds. My young kids love their own pool as well as meeting other kids at the other Communal Pools.

The supermarket is a stones throw away as well as restaurants and takeaways. Disney is minutes away by car and indeed you can view the Disney evening fireworks from the roof top area of the Hotel. Although close by, we loved Reunion for the relaxing atmosphere and being able to escape from the madness of the theme parks.

Our particular home is located on a corner plot and benefits from beautifully manicured gardens to the side together with being located on the 2nd Tee of the Arnold Palmer Golf Course. It was important to us that we were located on a Tee rather than overlooking a fairway not only for the added interest but also to ensure golf balls would be hit away from the property.

What makes this house unique

Our home is within walking distance of Reunion Grande 5*Hotel which offers Restaurants, Bars & a Stunning Roof Top Swimming Pool. From the pool area and viewing deck at the top of the Hotel you can view the Disney Parks in the distance, every evening this is an ideal viewing point to watch the Parks Fireworks whilst enjoying a glass of wine.

The Clubhouse is open for breakfast and casual dining.

Within walking distance/short drive there is a selection of shops; Publix Supermarket, CVS, Walgreens Pharmacy, Gas Station, Wells Fargo bank with Drive thru' ATMs, McDonalds, Nail Manicure Salon, Dunklin Doughnuts, Pizza & Chinese Take Aways, Hairdressers & Liquor Store. Chilli's, Red Robin. Ale House, English Fish & Chip shop and the list is growing as Championsgate Village is being built.

Every visitor to Reunion has to enter the community via secure gates. Security Patrol are in evidence around the neighbourhood.

Disney is only a short distance by car, and an easy drive to all the other main Orlando attractions. Reunion has good links to the I.4 and this gives good access to both the east and west coast beaches.

Good choice

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at this home it was everything we wanted and more. This was our first stay at Reunion and what a find. We loved having a good choice of restaurants and Publixs close by. Just driving through Reunion was a delight.

We wished we could have spent more time at the home and enjoyed the views but we had a busy schedule, but coming back in the evening and having super comfy beds was beyond good.

This home was very clean and well equipped.

Our parents enjoyed having the separate annex so they got some well deserved peace and quiet.

Vicky was easy to work with and we will be back next year to enjoy those beautiful sunrises and watch the golfers from the back patio.

We give this home 5 stars as it ticked all the right boxes for us, and would high recommend it to our friends and family.

Thank you for letting us stay in your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Five stars are what we work hard for so always a pleasure to receive a faultless review, thank you! Reunion is simply beautiful, and with the location only 6 Miles from Disney makes it ideally sited. Unlike other communities Reunion is up and coming and thankfully therefore very well maintained. I am pleased that you found the Beds comfortable, this was something we decided was important in investing in when we purchased originally. The separate Guest Suite just the other side of the Pool Courtyard is ideal for a second couple, giving a little independence from the main home. This is often popular with Grandparents or Teens. We are very lucky to be within minutes from Publix (Supermarket), as well as the take away options, bank etc. Also coming soon is a Walmart, within a few minutes drive. The development of the Champions Gate area just on our doorstep has now opened up more Restaurant choices & will continue to be developed. Thank you for recommending us to your friends and family, if ever I can help further please do not hesitate to contact me, Kind Regards Vicky (Homeowner)

Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful and clean. The owner was wonderful throughout the booking process and answered all our question quickly. We had a quick question while we were here and their local manager was very friendly and helpful. We loved the views of the golf course. Our family loved the pool and appreciated having a door to the bathroom right from the pool. The kitchen was well stocked and the house had everything we needed. This was our first stay in Reunion and we loved the resort. We would absolutely stay here again!

Pool size rare on Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I spent the Christmas holiday period at this beautiful home. We have stayed on Reunion several times prior and found this house to be the best value yet.

The home includes the guest suite too, ideal for my parents. Reunion is breathtaking, beautifully manicured & world way from the busy parks although all are very easily reached by car.

This particular home is on a corner lot, which means the pool is larger than of most properties of this size. The patio area is also a decent size together with a gas grill which is free for guests use. The size of the Pool is rare on Reunion.

It is located on the golf tee so no fear of a golf ball reaching our pool at speed, unlike another property we stayed at.

The balcony is the whole width of the house and accessed from the master suite, the views are lovely, the pictures do not do it the justice is deserves.

Truely a homely vacation rental and easy to deal with booking directly with the owner rather than a travel company.

We will definitely have no hesitation in booking this home again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time out to leave us a review. Its important that we learn what people enjoy from our home & also helps others when making their decision on whether to choose us, so thank you! We do strive to be very competitive within Reunion, this is not a profit making business for us, this is our second Home We chose our home for the location and the fact that originally it had been a model home. The major benefit of this is our location on the 2nd Tee but also the oversized pool area. Some properties directly on the golf course, as we are, if mid fairway are prone to being hit by straying golf balls. By being on the Tee the ball is thankfully hit away from the House. This also gives an excellent vantage point to watch the golfers coming through the course. The pool is of a decent size and incorporates a Spa. There are many loungers and seating within around the Pool which is ideal if you are wishing to take in the Sun. It should be mentioned that the Pool area is south facing and is an open air pool. This can be heated during the winter months. I thank you for staying at Excitement Place & if I can help you, or your family in the future please do not hesitate to contact me, Kind Regards Vicky Homeowner

2 week vacation/college bound

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable well maintained home was a pkeasure to stay in. The location to the grocery store, disney world, and other activites is paramount to saving time and money. The Reunion resort is very nice and the pools are very accessible. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with plenty of towels for the guests. The parking is great with overflow parking spaces on the street. The only obstacle we encountered since we arrived before a holiday was the garbage service not running until the next week ..We had so much garbage but we purchased extra bags and put everything out the following monday and they took it all by the evening..we utilized the gas grill and plenty of cooking...I gave this house a 5 star because of the proximity, the comfort and the affordability of the rental. Without these characteristics a 2week vacation would not have been possible as well as taking a freshman to college in tampa..It was a pleasure to rent this home and to come back to a nice home after driving..thanks to the owners..

Owner's Response: Thank you Tracey for taking the time to leave a review, we strive to achieve 5 stars, so always a pleasure to reach that goal! That said, since your stay we have invested another $6000 in further improvements at Excitement Place. We have had the exterior of the whole property including the guest suite re-painted - we've gone green! It creates a tropical fresh feel to the outside. We have re-modelled the ground floor queen bedroom, in addition to window treatments in the living areas. We are ideally located with Publix on our doorstep as well as CVS, Dunkin Doughnuts & Mc Donald's. I'm glad you enjoyed the other community pools, I have just returned & my 4 year old absolutely adores the splash pool. Again, thank you for leaving a review, hoping you son is settling in well to his new college & if I can be of help in the future please do not hesitate to get in touch. Kind Regards Vicky

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great House well appointed with beautiful views of Golf Course. Very peaceful location with close access to food shopping and restaurants. Separate cottage worked well for visitors with 1-2 small children. Great outside patio areas.For all visitors recommend renting a car as unlike staying on Disney properties where transportation available. Perfect stay with stress free arrival and departure. Recommend highly to all. I will certainly take this property again on my next return to Orlando.

Disney reunion

  • 5 of 5

I decided to take my son to Disney and do a family reunion at the same time. When we arrived at the house it was set up in a very warm and welcoming way. We felt at home right away. The area is beautiful the pool brought us all together for hours every night. It was great to have the guest house so that we could play games and allow my parents to have peace and quiet in the main house. The master bedroom was wonderful and the kitchen was perfect. We found shopping not to far from us which has was great. We found Publix and Dunkin doughnuts I would recommend anyone with a small family who wants to save money on multiple hotel rooms.

Owner's Response: Dear Ashlei, Thank you sincerely for taking time out to leave us a review. We always appreciate feedback, especially the maximum 5 Stars! We are so glad you had a good time. Both myself & the local Managing Agents try our upmost to make Excitement Place where you will remember your Family Vacation. My Kids use the Pool a lot and by being sited on the Corner Lot we are so very lucky to benefit from a large Pool deck with plenty of room for Sun bathing. Also reassuring to know we cannot get hit by straying Golf Balls when playing in the Pool unlike other Homes on Reunion! We have just returned from Excitement Place & have again upgraded the Interior as we do every visit. We are pleased you enjoyed what we have done so far, hopefully we can welcome you back again very soon, Kind Regards Vicky Homeowner
