About The Owner

Denis and I were married for nearly thirty nine years before he sadly passed away. We had two children, Suzanne and Robert. We had grown up together and family life was central to us both. I had been fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom and made it my mission to provide a loving home environment for us all; this is something which I am immensely proud of. I have now turned my attention to our home in Florida. Families played an important role in our lives and we hope this devotion has transcended into our stunning home in Florida.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee

Florida and families go hand-in-hand. There is no better place for us than the peaceful oasis of the upmarket gated community resort of Lake Berkley. It has so much to offer…tennis, basketball, volley ball courts and much, much more. It is a wonderful place to take time-out to be with your children and family members.

What makes this house unique

In our sumptuously decorated home we believe we have created a real quality family environment, a home from home, a place where you can come together but still have areas to go off to if you so wish. Time and effort has been spent giving our home the attention to detail the discerning guests expects. We are delighted to have created a quality environment for all our guests to enjoy. Regular personal visits ensures that our home remains immaculate for ourselves and our guests. We are confident it will exceed all your expectations of what a vacation rental home can and should offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you for lending your home to families to vacation in while in Florida. We had a great time! Your place was wonderful! Thanks again.

beautiful property and thoughtful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Maddie's place a few days ago and I'm still dreaming of it every day (especially as I sit in the middle of a snowstorm now). Maddie is a great communicator and sent us all the info we needed to get into the house prior to our visit. Everything went so smoothly and the house is just beautiful. After being at Disney all day, it was such a pleasure to escape the crowds and come home to this lovely house. We walked 10 miles each day at Disney and always soaked in the hot tub after that - so my mom and I think that completely prevented any soreness we would have had! The house has everything you need from a great kitchen and lots of TVs to the little touches like a little jewelry box to put your earrings in at night...Just perfect!! Thanks Maddie!!

Excellent home for our vacation!

We really loved our stay! Madeline was so responsive to any request or need we had. We loved having all the extra space for our family to spread out and the private pool couldn't have been more enjoyable. We will definitely recommend your home to others! Thank you!!

Beautiful home with a super sweet and caring owner

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 5 day stay at Maddie's place, and it was awesome. The house is as beautiful as advertised and Maddie the owner is a super nice person and a great communicator. The rooms are beautiful and the master suite is spacious with a huge bathroom, sunken tub and shower. This was particularly useful for me in bathing my handicap daughter. The first floor of the house has two bedrooms that make handicap access a snap. Front entry and back porch entry are both handicap accessible, so I'd highly recommend this house for special needs travelers. The beds are very comfortable with excellent mattresses and pillows. Maddie provided a wealth of useful tips that helped in navigating the area to Disney, Universal, and more. The whole Kissimmee and Orlando area is loaded with fund things to do, and we now wish we had booked a longer trip. Morning coffee on the porch overlooking the lake were spectacular. We saw several different specifies of waterfowl and other birds. As travelers, being in a gated community also provided an extra level of comfort. The price value of this place is a bargain. Thanks a bunch Maddie!

-Kyle and family from Colorado.

GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation and very comfortable accommodations. The house was very spacious and beds were comfortable. The owner (Madeleine) was very responsive and helpful with any questions I had; really enjoyed talking to her on the phone. Only thing I would add to the property is another guest book; seems like everyone has enjoyed their stay and you need another book so folks can continue to write about their visit; there was no room for us to write. Again...we had a wonderful experience and we would recommend this house to all. Thank You!

Owner's Response: Oh Matt thank you so much for your lovely and wonderful review which I found very touching. It has brightened up what is a very sad day for me. It brought a smile to me face and made feel so much better. I will ask my MC to buy a new book. I am very fortunate to have guests who write such long and beautiful reviews. You and your family were so charming guests and it was truly great speaking to you, even though you were hanging a large TV you took the time to speak to me. Hope to see you again some day. Love and hugs, Maddie xxx

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

It's been exactly a month and I am missing your villa so much. The wild life we saw was unbelievable and some so tame the squirrels loved lucky charms and we could feed them by hand. We also saw a family of raccoons a snapping turtle ,storks, alligator, large fish in lake and a snake which I run a mile duck, just a fantastic place to stay.xxx
