About Janet & Lyndsey Barnard

We are both Londoner's who now live Norfolk, which is about 100 miles to the North East of London. We live in a rural location and about a 30 minute drive to the coast.

We have 2 grown up children both working and living near London. At home, we have 2 Dogs, 3 cats, 2 ponds with many species of fish including Koi, Mirror Carp etc..

We love Florida

Janet & Lyndsey Barnard purchased this villa in 2014

Why Janet & Lyndsey Barnard chose Cumbrian Lakes

We are from the UK and are both retired. We, have been visiting Florida's Kissimmee / Orlando areas for many years, first staying in Hotels and then moving on to villa rentals. Having fallen in love with the area, we decided to buy in May 2011, buying a Townhome obtaining a 5 Star rating on the HomeAway / VRBO websites. In April 2014, we upgraded to a Villa with it's own pool and great location. Communities to the south of the '192' being our favorite Resort area, Cumbrian Lakes was the obvious choice for us.

The location of the Resort, and it's close proximity to the Disney, Universal and Sea World locations, plus the added security of a Gated Community made the decision easy.

As we have only recently taken ownership, we are still building up guest review ratings, but expect to see many more positive reviews over the following months, as the number of our bookings grows.

What makes this villa unique

We always had this picture in our heads of having breakfast by our own pool looking out over a pond/lake view, and this house provided us with that and more. The South Facing aspect of the pool and extended deck area provides us with sunshine all day long as well as wonderful sunsets, There is a 'Wrap-Around' lake view from the villa's poolside, ideal for a breakfast coffee, a mid-day cold beer and an evening whatever takes our fancy, including a barbeque and glass of wine.

Cumbrian Lakes resort is ideally located for eating out, and many restaurants that we use can be found within 5 miles of the property. And, although we are not 'Shop Till You Drop' people, we do enjoy shopping for bargains, and the 'Orlando Premium Outlets', the 'Loop' and the new 'Lake Buena Vista' shopping centres are all less than 25 minutes away.

So for us .....JUST PERFECT!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for 7 days and had a wonderful experience. The property was beautiful. It was even better then we expected. It was well maintained, there was plenty of room and the rooms were nice sizes. The pool was well kept and always the right temperature. Everything was provided to make it feel like home. We would definitely stay at this property again .

1st time in a Florida villa and have to say we were blown away by the location facilities and overall standard of your villa.

Every detail had been thought of my Hubbie enjoyed fishing in the lake and the wildlife ....peaceful location.

Also whilst being delayed the owners went above and beyond to help us out.

Don't look any further as this villa is the one and we would not hesitate to book again in the future .

Very satisfied

  • 4 of 5

The property looked very similar to the photos. The pool was heated, all the appliances worked well. We spent some.time.at the house and had some relatives over that lived in the area. The house was big enough to entertain. The house was overall clean and bright. We met the service people and had them take a look at a few things while they were there doing routine maintenance and reconnecting the dryer. The few things were a clogged sink and a few light bulbs out in the entrance way inside and out. Overall we were very satisfied.

Everything as expected

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in October and everything was just as nice as in the description. Pool is lovely and heating worked well. Interior clean and kitchen utensils ok. Everything worked, no hassle with the key box etc. Would recommend to anyone planning a good holiday. Location also peaceful, but close to all attractions. A find.

Fabulous accommodation. I Want to move in!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 8 and 10 year old daughters and I stayed here for two weeks late October to early November.

From the moment we arrived we were all so glad we had chosen this villa. The pictures really do not convey just how roomy the villa is. Particularly the master bedroom and bathroom which is huge!! The villa was located in a quiet road with views of the surrounding lakes which were a hub of activity with local wildlife. We saw huge birds and a gator made numerous appearances during our stay, which we watched from the safety of our enclosed pool area.

The owners have thought of everything. There was a cupboard filled with towels to use outside in the pool in addition to the towels in each bathroom, a cupboard full of books, games, fishing equipment and baby cots and toys if you have a little one in tow. Kitchen cupboards were filled with everything you would want and the huge fridge with ice maker and water filter was a nice surprise!

The info pack inside the villa was useful with local info and details of the management company and we put this to the test as we called a very helpful gentleman (named inside the brochure)when we forgot the code we had used to lock the safe on our first day!He offered to come the following day to assist us- until I had a eureka moment and remembered the code. It was good to know he was on hand if needed.

The villa is well equipped with technology. My daughters were happy to watch tv in the evenings after hectic days at the parks and my husband and I caught up with new releases on Netflix.

We were not at the villa enough to fully utilise the great games room but we maximised every opportunity to use the pool. We had it heated during our stay as the evenings were cool following the owners correct recommendation. We loved the box full of inflatables and pool games.

Everything was in pristine order on arrival and it was easy to maintain a tidy home with a well stocked utility cupboard (hoover, mop, and the washing machine and dryer).

The owners were great and answered my huge list of questions (it was our first long haul holiday as a family). They answered emails promptly and nothing was too much trouble. We were thrilled with the sat-nav we borrowed from them. It was thoughtfully pre- programmed with routes to key places (Disney, shops, airport etc) this was well utilised. A really nice touch and goes to show how the owners really have thought of everything. We would go back in a heart beat. Thank you.

Welcome to our recently redecorated and upgraded Villa located in the exclusive and peaceful Cumbrian Lakes Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. Situated within a gated community for additional security, our villa is located just off of Hwy 192 and provides easy access for all the theme parks. Disney World being only a 10-20 minutes’ drive away and Universal / Sea World less than 30 minutes away.

Cumbrian Lakes is set in a 200-acre conservation area with lake walks & jogging trails, it provides a peaceful haven & yet is close to all the excitement of the theme parks, and is also within easy access to the airports & beaches.

It is representative of all that is great about Central Florida. The wide, tree lined streets provide shade, while the lakes are a peaceful locale to fish and view a diverse range of Florida's wildlife including deer, eagles, cranes, ospreys, gators and blue heron.

It has many amenities inside its gates, and guests are free to enjoy a walking / cycling nature trail, a children's playground, and for the more energetic, there is a football (soccer) field with no shortage of takers for a game.

Just along the road, and less than 2 miles away is the not so well known, but lovely Green Meadows Petting Farm - a great place for the younger kids,
