About Gary & Karen Ellis

I am a builder/construction person in our home state of Michigan, and my wife is a master gardener. We love our Florida home and have made many improvements to this upscale location in a 24-hr gated community.

Gary & Karen Ellis purchased this house in 2001

Why Gary & Karen Ellis chose Lake Berkley

Situated in an ideal spot on the lake, guests can relax with beautiful scenery, while also enjoying a large pool area, a 32-jet heated spa. There is a landscape hedge on both sides of our pool for privacy with the rear open, and no fence to spoil the view.The entire lanai is screened in, so there are no bugs! The pool faces southeast so there is a.m. and p.m. sun. For those who prefer a shady area, the covered part of the lanai will provide this, after mid-morning. The pool will be partially shaded by mid-afternoon.

What makes this house unique

We have included all linens, cooking utensils, dishes, glasses, towels, hair dryers and an iron. Also available are tennis rackets and fishing poles. Our gated community offers a clubhouse with a large lap heated pool, children's splash area with water guns and fountains, a hot tub with indoor game room, pool tables, exercise room. The resort lake is stocked with 4,000 fish and boasts a lookout pier and walking paths. One of the best locations overlooking our island of nature with tropical birds and you can site poolside and watch the bass jump!! Our 24-hour Super-center Wal-Mart is within walking distance and will fulfill all your groceries, banking, and pharmacy needs. Disney attractions are within 10 minutes!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

hi Gary just wanted to let you know we arrived back in Ireland this evening. We were heartbroken leaving your stunning villa, everyone of us had a superb holiday from the little ones right up to the grandparents in our party the villa was so spacious and comfortable and even though the weather in our second week was not so good everyone had a blast, I don't think sitting in my back garden for breakfast tomorrow will ever compare to my breakfast at your pool overlooking the Island! I have left a little gift from Ireland with the management lady its means a hundred thousand welcomes in Irish!! Many many thanx again and maybe in a few years we will be lucky enough to visit again Px

Great place, great area.

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice. The only thing renters should note is that there are no paper products. That includes toilet paper. Not a big deal, just something you should know before getting there. Everything was wonderful. Pool area was a huge bonus. The view was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family of 5. We even had friends from across the state come and stay a night with us and they got their own room. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Very happy we chose this place.

Enjoyed our stay, felt at home very quickly

  • 5 of 5

7 in our family stayed here as we made plans for Disney and Universal. Disney was very close by and easy to get to. Universal was a bit farther (about 50 minutes with heavy traffic), but very easy directionally. We felt very comfortable in the house and we had plenty of room for the 7 of us. Our kids loved the pool and hot tube area and used it just about every day. The island behind the house made for some entertaining bird watching too. We really enjoyed our stay and only wish it lasted longer.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you are staying in the Orlando area for a short or long stay look no further as this is the house you want to rent. It is spotless, safe neighbourhood and great location. We swam in the pool every chance we could (the temperature was so warm) played tennis and pool at night and my teenage boys had fun fishing. I think the boys caught 9 fish in all. Also house had everything you could need, tons of towels, super comfortable beds and overlooking a beautiful lake. We were all so sad to leave but have great memories to take with us.

Our family of four stayed from April 18 -23
