About Barry & Helen

Had property in Kissimmee for over 20 years

Live in the UK, so have a management company to look after the villa and guests, they are there to help and nothing is too much trouble as they want all our guests to enjoy their time at ' The Great Escape ' . They will help with places to go, where to get the best priced tickets for Disney / attractions, dinner shows etc.

Barry & Helen purchased this villa in 2000

Why Barry & Helen chose Kissimmee

Our villa is central to everywhere you wish to visit, be it on the east coast to Cocoa Beach or west coast to Tampa. Disney is right on the doorstep just 10 mins drive. Restaurants, shops, pubs and walmart is just a few minutes walk, whatever you want, it's all right here on the door step.

Lake Berkley has a guard house that is manned 24/7 and is a great comfort for those who want security, the guards are a friendly bunch with great respect for our guests. If you want to enter the resort without passing by the guards each time. then a fob can be purchased at $5.00 per week, this will allow you through the fast lane to beat the queues, all you need to do is sign for the fob on arrival.

What makes this villa unique

Tucked away in its own corner of paradise.

3 fishing lakes with nature trail walk, external gym area, kiddies playground, volleyball net, tennis court and basketball hoop.

A gazebo where we have had couples get married.

Walking distance to Walmart and Medieval Times Dinner Show.

One if the cleanest and well kept communities in the area.

Very roomy and comfortable home to stay in. The 10 of us stayed 8 nights, but wished it was 80. We all had a great time. It was awesome to come back to this house from the parks or beach and just crash on a couch or bed. It was close enough to everything to where you don't have to plan the whole day out, you can just come and go. The security and gated community is a big comfort since we had our grand babies with us.

The price is great. I really don't get why renters complain about a place not being updated. Myself, I would rather save a few hundred bucks on a slightly outdated house, just as an owner would like to save some on updating a place. No complaints on this house at all. The wife and I are looking forward to many more trips back here.

Thanks for everything,

Kevin & Jeanette Nunley

Snowbirds land at Lake Berkley !

  • 4 of 5

We are a retired couple who love getting away from the winter weather to find a "nest" in warmer climates. Lake Berkley is a wonderful, gated community that provides lovely scenery and friendly people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The homeowners and Norm - the property manager were eager to make our stay very enjoyable. We would highly recommend this property!

A great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great time. The villa is lovely and spacious with everything you could need, the pictures on the website really don't do it justice. The owners and management company were great. We have stayed on Lake Berkley a few times before and wouldn't stay anywhere else as it is in a great location with 24 hour security. Walmart is only 5 minutes away with plenty of restaurant's also 5 to 10 minutes drive. Medieval Times is less than 5 minutes away. I would definitely recommend this villa and would stay here again.

Perfect Place for Families

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks and fell in love with the house and the area. I had a bad experience with a prior rental property including very rude owners. This was NOT the case here at all. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We had only a few minor issues that were quickly addressed by the very friendly management company. The house has a beautiful open layout and had most items needed already on hand. It is literally minutes from Wal-mArt (life saver for our large family), attractions, parks, and Medieval Times (we loved this show). With having a pool at outback door we literally just relaxed and enjoyed hanging out with our family. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this property to others.
