Hi - I'm Ewan Miller. I set up Reunion Private Rentals in early 2011 bringing together a small collection of Reunion's trusted Property Managers and Owners. Why Reunion Resort? I'd stayed there with my wife, as well as in many other rental resorts in Orlando, and found the whole experience of finding and securing rental accommodation unnecessarily lengthy and challenging. Many of the larger rental websites seemed overly complex; the smaller more location focussed sites lacking in functionality. Looking for a place in the sun to spend valued time with family and friends should have been a more holistic and engaging experience. I decided to start my experiment with Reunion Resort as unlike other similar resorts it lacked an independent website offering rentals not affiliated with any one owner, manager or the resort itself.
While I take on most of the work (technology and otherwise) my wife, Joanna, helps me out with marketing, general quality assurance and keeping me sane. We live in a small village near Glasgow in the UK and run Reunion Private Rentals as a small business. Along the way have picked up a small and trusted group of property owners and managers at Reunion who pay us to list their properties on our site. All properties are robustly verified upon listing. We know our owners well. We bounce our ideas off them and they help us develop the site, adding new functionality as we go. We go to some length to ensure we have that bond with property owners and managers on the site, way beyond standard checks to ensure they are genuine. We don't like listers who are abrupt with vacationers or don't take the time or care to create meaningful listings. Where owners need help in this space we help. But we have no affiliation with any owners or managers in the resort nor any link to the resort itself. At a base level we are like a dating agency for vacationer and property renter. We help you meet but how it progresses is up to you.
We are also keen to engage vacationers and often go looking for feedback; without your input we can't improve the site. It always amazes me how much, as technologists, we misinterpret the customer need or want. We do a lot to make sure our site is simple and easy to use. It isn't always but we like to think we know where to improve and keep evolving.
We started with Reunion but spun the concept out across various other resorts in Orlando; Windsor Hills, Emerald Island, Highlands Reserve, Regal Palms and Champions Gate. Every resort is different. We also now have sites covering worldwide locations; Cape Verde, Kalkan and Bodrum.
We hope you find Reunion Private Rentals a valued tool in your vacation property search. If there is anything you think we could improve please get in touch as let us know. If you are looking for some advice/tips to help with your search or decision making process please drop us a note and we'll help.
