About Jeanette and Brian

We live in Hertfordshire in the UK and absolutely adore the lifestyle and climate in Florida. The photo is of us celebrating our wedding anniversary in Florida Keys which we obviously combined with a trip to our home in Kissimmee!

Jeanette and Brian purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jeanette and Brian chose Lake Berkley

When we chose our villa our priority was a lakefront so as not to feel 'hemmed in' and 24 hour guarded security gate so as to feel safe. Lake Berkley is so much more than that and we have fallen in love with it. The community is maintained in pristine condition and there are facilities for family of all ages. We love the walks around the lakes and the spectacular scenery and wildlife.

What makes this villa unique

Being close to all the parks, the 24 hour Walmart 2 minutes drive away, being east of Disney less than half-an-hour from Orlando International Airport on a route that does not involve toll roads.

Beautiful home and comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a beautiful gated community that has several amenities that are available to enjoy. The master bedroom has the most comfortable bed you can imagine. The men in our group really appreciated the game room with the pool table and the kids loved the pool.

Absolutely over delivered on all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property, approx 30mins from attractions, lovely estate, very clean and well kept...everything possible thought of in property, only thing would say is would have been nice to have welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, sugar....as we arrived quite late. One is offered for delivery but at cost of $60.....and more than we required....on the plus side, there is a large ll art we discovered the following morning round the corner, approx one mile. A very fabulous time was had by us all, very sad to leave...would highly reccomend.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay :-). Welcome packs are available to order but guests tend to have their preferred brands so we will make sure to let guests know there is a 24 hour Walmart superstore two minutes drive away. We usually drop off the suitcases and then go do a mini shop to get through the first few days. Jeanette and Brian

2 week family holiday

  • 5 of 5

9 of us , oldest 60+, youngest 4 months, arrived in August, for a two week family,

The house is in an ideal location, about 15-20 minutes from the Disney parks, and about 22 miles from the airport, with five bedrooms, there is plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing

Lake Berkley Resort is beautifully maintained and is very quiet, secure, and a haven from the bustle of the Orlando area,

Their is a large 24 hr Walmart supermarket less than a mile away,

We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends

Enjoyed our time!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful! The only reason I am giving it a 4 star is because when we arrived the floor around the toilet in the larger master bathroom was flooded. Not sure what the problem was. It was very difficult to get a hold of some one and when we did they seemed annoyed . I had to call like 3 times and still no one came until 4:30 on Sunday. On the whole my family enjoyed the home and pool. Convenient to the Disney Parks. My family also had lots of fun spending down time playing pool. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Pool, pool and an unwanted pool! There does appear to have been a misunderstanding here as the Management Company believed they had agreed to follow up by telephone to check whether further water had appeared but it seems there was no-one at home to take the call. The Management Company attended once expectations were clarified however, there was no leak and the cause of the water on the floor was never established. Jeanette and Brian

A great house in a great position

  • 4 of 5

Given you know all the wonderful things, we will just take the opportunity to tell you about a few things that you probably should know.

1. For several days our pool was not heated and we were not sure what the temperature should be. At the end of our second week when the pool maintenance man came by, he said the level had gone down too low for the heating to work. He switched the hose on and we in fact switched it off when the pool was about to overflow. He had not asked us to keep an eye. Luckily we saw it when we came home from the park. We did talk to the agency about this and have been a little disappointed not to be contacted about this.

2. On the kitchen surface, tiny ants appeared on a fairly regular basis. They were easily destroyed but ...

3. In the master bedroom, between the bedroom itself and the bathroom, there are some sharp edges in the carpet cord (plastic underweave). We covered these with a bathroom rug, but it will need attending to.

4. You may be aware that we had to call the rental agents as a smoke alarm was bleeping through the night in the master bedroom. It's probably time for all the batteries to be changed.

5. It has been awhile since we have stayed in a house in the States, but we were surprised there was no pepper and salt, washing up liquid etc to help us through the first day or so. Is that the norm?

Otherwise, all fab and we would definitely book again!

Owner's Response: The issue with the pool heating was due to a misjudgement by pool maintenance about evaporation levels during a dry spell. The lack of heating has since been addressed to the guests' satisfaction. The remaining maintenance issues were addressed on changeover - great to have local management on hand able to act quickly! We do not supply food or detergent and this has now been clarified on the website
