Location Location -

we were already keen on Lake Berkley due to its great facilities when Hibiscus-on-the-Lake became available. It has just the best setting - overlooking the main lake with a south facing pool.

Wonderful villa and perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect vacation home. After a busy day at the parks (minutes away and easy to get to) it was so nice to come home to an extremely clean and relaxing home. The view of the (steps away) lake was beautiful. An eagle flew over as well as ducks (which we fed), herons were plentiful and we caught several fish. It was so quiet and peaceful plus we were able to enjoy high temps of 84 and 82. The pool and hot tub are very nice. The home is well equipped with everything you need. I have never seen such a well stocked game room for all ages. If you have a baby, toddler or small children this is a dream home. There is everything you could think of. The beds were very comfortable and there is an abundance of towels (even beach towels) and linens. This home is very beautiful. The owners are wonderful. Communication was very easy, prompt and they also provided useful info about the area including maps. We hope to be able to return in the future and have already recommended to our friends and family.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property. Good location on quiet estate with great views of the lake and the wildlife (birds, turtles & alligator). The villa is particularly well suited to families with kids from toddlers to teenagers. There is a very extensive selection of equipment and games for them to use and enjoy. The owners proved very responsive to any queries I had. Would recommend to friends and family.

April 2015 - Awesome - Kids loved it and so did we!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2015. This was our first time using VRBO or renting a house. There were 5 of us. We have a 16, 14, and 10 year old. It was awesome! Everything was as the listing shows. Owners are awesome! I would recommend to anyone! Plenty of room. Pool is great and screened in so no bugs! Very relaxing after a long day in the hot sun. Very peaceful but everything is so close and easy to get to. We had absolutely no issues. Tim and Glenda were very helpful and responsive to all our questions! If I could give a better rating, I would! Very kind people! Thank you Tim and Glenda!

Awesome Views/Location/Kids-friendly +Kind Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adults and 4 young girls had a blast at this lovely villa over this past Thanksgiving break. We were celebrating our mother-in-law's 70th birthday.

Everything was perfect, esp. Location-wise, both proximity to theme parks & inside the Lake Berkeley resort as the villa is situated in a cul-de-sac. Incredibly stunning lake view with that pretty island is as shown in the photos. The pathway to the lake, nice little sand beach and playground was literally right next to the front door. Spacious 5 BR with 3 full Baths, and heated pool & spa with pool toys & plenty of linens & cookware incl. a new charcoal grill. Fully equipped with baby/toddler equipment incl. crib, stroller, tons of toys/DVDs in the Game room.

You simply won't find Anything that beats this combo around Greater Orlando area -- How sure am I? Well, I've looked thru more than 100 villas around, and this was the Winner, esp. at this rate!

Best of all, Tim & Glenda were very responsive to my emails (only time I had to wait a couple of days was when they were traveling) and considerate with everything. 2 families flew in separately with one arriving a day earlier and checking out a day later - so Tim kindly issued us 2 separate "Arrival Forms" so that each family could show the form upon security gate entry (if you're arriving on differing schedules, please take note as you won't be given the entrance pass w/o this form).

A few tips to better prepare for your stay:

1. Clubhouse: Communal pool is large and offers kiddy splash pool, and small indoor gym but besides that, nothing else available (no game room, arcade, etc.) Neighboring Hapimag was closed during all days.

2. Lake: If you want to try fishing, use the Dock next to the sand beach and spinning rod gears (2 sets) in the Game room closet. Suggest just using white bread sogged (dough) for Carp-like fish OR nightcrawler or fake worm for giant Largemouth bass.(I saw both caught). Alligator shows up often.

3. Park Tickets: Wal-Mart (<0.5 mile) sells Disney & Universal Tickets at 2~3% discount. SeaWorldParks.com is best & fastest (No need to stand in line, show barcode on your smartphone to enter!) to get discounted e-tickets - Weekday is cheaper + 1 Kid FREE with 1 Adult purchase deal.

* Important: Do NOT use Craigslist, eBay to buy "deep discounts" as they're 100% scams

All in all, what an amazing stay and my mother-in-law was so happy. Thanks to Tim & Glenda - we'll certainly come back & refer friends!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

What a place!

This villa is absolutely beautiful with what must be the best view of any rental home in Orlando. Tim and Glenda have thought of everything when it comes to meeting the needs of their guests and their home is really well equipped both inside and out - we all really enjoyed our stay here!

It has such a peaceful location but I was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy it was to get to all the major theme parks and shopping centres and it was lovely getting back here after our hectic days out and being able to relax in the spa while the younger ones were either playing in the pool or having air hockey/pool tournaments in the games room.

We have been going to Florida regularly for almost 20years and I have to say this is by far the nicest home we ever stayed in and I would highly recommend this villa to anyone thinking about coming here.

I would also like to say a big thank you to the whole Salter family for allowing us to stay in their fabulous home!

Patty

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our stay in this beautiful vacation home. We were very comfortable and felt like we were at home. The view was the best in the neighborhood. The house was well equipped with everything you would need, except food and clothes. The playroom was so nice to have for a rainy afternoon. The owners and management were the best and very attentive. We had a wonderful time celebrating my mom's 90th birthday. If you need a vacation home, book this one! You won't be sorry! Thank you for making our stay in Kissimmee enjoyable!

There is a laundry room with a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board. Beach towels are provided, as are all bath towels, linens, as well as hairdryers, straighteners and curling irons in the bathrooms all for your use – giving you more room in your suitcase for those visits to the wonderful shopping malls! A safe is provided in the master closet and our home is fully alarmed and protected by Brinks. And finally..The villa is maintained by an established, on-site management company who provide a first-class friendly service and will look after you during your stay.
