For vacation I would say Reunion is one of the best places to be. You could purchase a home within your price range & requirements over there. The community is 24 manned gated, It has 3 golf courses, a 15-million dollar water park. 11 community pools, tennis courts, spa, restaurants,.. it is like a little city within the community gate.
Heathrow would also be a great choice. It is where I live myself. Heathrow is a manned gated, golf community within Lake Mary city limits and Lake Mary has been voted repeatedly as one of the top 10 cities to live in USA. We have great shopping, fantastic fine dining, lots of biking & walking trails it has more of a family type living vs. Reunion that is essentially a resort and you have more of that vacation feel. The homes start at around $350K and go all the way to $3M to $4M. From Lake Mary to Orlando you have only 17 miles Drive.
In Orlando I would say Lake Nona area is the best to be, Eagle Creek is a fantastic community, manned gated, with gold course, club house, ....
Below is the link to some homes in these area:
We sell a lot of homes all over Orlando area & would be more than happy to help you find a great home for your family (feel free to review my recommendation & background by clicking on my pictures)
Have a splendid evening.
