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 Orlando!

Jeanette and Brian purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jeanette and Brian chose Kissimmee

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.

Great family spot, close to everything! Little details made the experience special.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Lake Berkley Villa for a family vacation (8 ppl) to Orlando in January 2017. After pouring through the countless listings for homes in the area in our price range, the pics and reviews for this listing had the instant "wow!" factor that we were looking for. Location was perfect, far enough off the main drag, but 15-30 min from Disney and Universal depending on the traffic. The property was as listed, clean and well maintained, and the family was impressed at the spaciousness and little details of the accommodations. Everyone loved the themed kids' bedrooms and the awesome game room. The little touches gave the home a feel of a Disney brand resort, but we loved having our own space to stretch out and move around at the end of a long day without the crowds. The resort was great, felt very safe and well maintained. Gate shack was staffed 24/7, and though we didn't take much advantage of the resort features such as the communal pool, clubhouse, and playground, it seems like a great place to take the family during the warmer months. We did spend almost two whole days in our private pool and hot tub, and shooting pool and playing hide-and-seek inside the rental - those extras made the whole booking much more special. From booking to trip completion, customer service from the owners and rental company was top notch. We're already planning our next trip and would love to stay here again!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The "men" in the group loved the Man cave/games room. If the women could not find the guys, we did not have to look far for them! Everyone enjoyed the house, pool and Jacuzzi and sitting out on the patio to enjoy breakfast. Very relaxing and calm. The property was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time travelling to Florida. We found the location of this house fantastic! Super close to restaurants,shopping and Disney. The house was clean and as described. The only negative comment we have is that the deck/pool area is much smaller than it appears in the photos. Otherwise we love thi spot. We would stay here again.

Excellent and well presented property in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 adults we wanted a property that allowed us to spread out. This property allowed us to do so with bedrooms to spare. The property Is in a good location being within easy reach of all the main attractions and is situated on a well groomed gated community. The pool, games room and jaquizzi were all appreciated after a day in the parks. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property.

Great villa great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of villas in Orlando over a period of years and this is one of the best equipped homes in a lovely setting on a fabulous estate we have holidayed in, we were all of the opinion we have found our dream villa. We are a family of 5 being grandparents, parents and a 7 year old and this villa had everything we needed to make our visit to Florida one of the best ever. We found the house to be exactly as described on the the website and everyone felt very comfortable from the moment we arrived with every room in the villa furnished to a high standard. We would all love to return and would have no hesitation in booking this villa again. Thank you Jeanette and Brian for allowing us to use your beautiful home. Lawrence & Vi Tyne & Wear

Fabulous !!!.

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is in a great location to all amenities, parks, local experiences etc. It is also a great place if you just want time to relax and take all the nature and surroundings in =) There is a great nature walk on the complex and also my partner went fishing on the pond behind the villa and caught at least two fish each time he went out. The neighbours are very friendly and always said good morning when I went on my morning walk by myself which says how safe I felt. I think this just about sums everything up. I would recommend this villa to family and friends !!!. If you decide to stay here you will no doubt have a great time. Happy Holidays !!!!!. xXx
