About Angela Howe

The house is owned by the Howe family. Paul is a graduate of Arizona State University. An ex Sun Devil Swimmer and a British Triple Olympian. He was a middle distance swimmer. Angela worked as a teacher for eleven years before starting a family. We bought the house as we wanted to buy somewhere in the Disney corridor and we fell in love with the home as soon as we saw it. With three children now teenagers how could we resist The Big Blue House!

Angela Howe purchased this house in 2005

Why Angela Howe chose Reunion

We particulary like the fact that the home is in The Homestead area and so central to everything in Reunion and it is part of a Resort Community. It is so easy to wander up to The Cove to spend an afternoon there swimming, in the fitness room or playing pool or a morning playing tennis or golf. In the evening you can walk up to Eleven or The Clubhouse. The location is also very quiet. We rarely see anyone when we are around the pool at the back.

It is just 30 minutes from Orlando International airport ( Junction 58) and approximately four miles (only 10 minutes) from the Disney main gate off Interstate 4.

We like the fact that the resort is gated and safe.

Reunion Resort and Club of Orlando is an exclusive five star, gated community with three private championship signature golf courses by Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

What makes this house unique

Our home is managed by one of the Premier Management Companies in Orlando and their team are on call 24/7 to ensure that everything is as it should be.

We are members of the Resort so we can provide the Houseguest Card for you to play golf and use the waterpark on the days you require. Please let us know your needs.

Awesome, in every way

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with kids 15 to 23. We are very familiar with the Orlando area and have stayed in Reunion several times. Safe to say we know the area and we know the resort very well.

First, the area. The Blue House is a 5 minute stroll to the Cove pool, fitness center, and pool amenities including restaurant and bar. It is also a 5 minute walk to the tower hotel and all of its amenities. The neighborhood is very nice with quiet streets and a very peaceful environment. If you have decided that Reunion is for you, this location is second to none.

Next, the house. Four huge bedrooms each with it's own full bath. A very well appointed kitchen. A full dining room which we nevwr used and a kitchen nook which we used all time. Additionally a nice tv sitting room. A handy garage also. One bedroom on second floor has access to a spacious deck overlooking the golf course. First floor has full width porch also. But it's the backyard that makes the house. The other second floor bedroom has access to a deck overlooking the beautiful, enclosed pool area. We spent a lot of time out there. Swimming, lounging, eating.....it was the best feature of the house. Oh, and a gas grill BBQ too.

So, what else? 5 minute drive to restaurants at Championsgate. 5 minutes to Publix, Dunkin, and all kinds of shops for everything you can imagine. Approx 15 or 20 minutes to Disney main entrance. 30 minutes to Universal or I-Drive. These estimates all include usual I-4 traffic.

So why? Heck of a lot better than cramming into 2 hotel rooms and eating 3 meals a day out.($$$$$$$). So much room....such a beautiful house in a beautiful resort. You will not be disappointed.

Last....the owners. Angela was very helpful, responsive, and generous. Every question answered quickly. And most importantly everything they say, and promise, is 100% accurate. When renting online, there are always gonna be things that don't quite work out. I can honestly say Angela made this rental a breeze.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review. We do believe that the house enjoys one of the best locations in the Resort as Reunion Grande, The Spa and The Clubhouse and The Cove are within easy walking distance which is great for both families and golfers. It is also very quiet and private so you can enjoy some quality time with your family and friends yet watch the world go by on the golf course from the front of the house. Thank you very much for the review and we are delighted that you enjoyed staying in the house.

This house was in a perfect location! Close to Disney and all of the other attractions and also close to the community pool. The outdoor space and private pool was also very nice. Good size, clean and private. The house worked great for our family as well! :) We would recommend this property!!!

Blue House in Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home for a week the week between Christmas and New Years. There was plenty to do in the area and we would definitely visit here again! It was a perfect setup for us, our two grown daughters and their families. Everyone enjoyed the roominess and space to spread out.

Prior to our visit, Angela Howe was an awesome person to deal with and took care of anything I asked about. She arranged house passes for us which proved to be a challenge because Mother Nature wasn't the nicest during our visit but we got some activities in despite the rain and cold. While we were there we had an issue with the trash and recycle not being picked up timely. There were notes about bringing the containers in once picked up or the homeowners would be assessed a fee but the pickup was a mess because of the holidays. In any event, with one email Angela was able to get this resolved.

The property rental included a very nice folder with instructions and lots of information about the house and the area. Very useful and appreciated!

About the only negative would be the kitchen faucet dripped quite a bit and the freezer seemed to defrost itself on occasion causing a puddle in front of the fridge. We left a note in the kitchen about these small items.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your kind comments. We were delighted that you enjoyed the house and the neighbourhood. I don't know what happened with the local refuse collection over the holidays but I was delighted to see that our management had it covered and removed it for you. I'll chase up the tap/freezer issues. We cannot unfortunately stop things breaking however we can sort out the issues and hopefully make them right ready for the next guest. We look forward to accommodating you and your family again. Best Wishes for 2018.

A magical visit

  • 5 of 5

The Blue House is phenomenal with tall ceilings, lavish baths, a well anointed kitchen and sweeping golf course views. We found the property very clean, the management company was responsive and accommodating, and the owners were delightful to work with. The community is awesome, we can't wait to return to play golf and explore the amenities. The location was convenient to shopping and Disney...hint use Waze to navigate the traffic. I had the responsibility of booking a house for 3 families, all were well pleased with my selection.
