About Lisa Ellis

Hey, I'm Lisa!

Together with my family we rent vacation homes in the Orlando and Central Florida area.

We love Florida and our ambition is to make the perfect vacation experience for our guests so you fall in love with this wonderful area too.

The attraction parks are amazing, of course, but there are so many other wonderful things to discover in Florida. Our aim is to help you discover these gems whilst enjoying a real vacation 'home away from home'.

Renting a villa gives you so much more space and freedom than a hotel and is often cheaper too. We will also help with all those little extra things that make your vacation extra special.

With my family on the ground in Kissimmee, help is available 24/7 & is never more than twenty minutes away. If you'd like to know more please get in touch.

I look forward to hosting you soon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at Lake Berkley a dozen or so times now and this is probably one of the better villas. Its located in a beautiful gated community overlooking a lake but in an ideal place for access to all the major attractions. I would highly recommend this villa and the booking agent Ellis Exclusive Villas. We have already booked for next year.

Great Villa, fabulous estate, very good location

  • 5 of 5

Spent two weeks here with the family and it was absolutely spot on. Villa is great, Lake Berkley is a beautiful gated community, and it's ideally located just off the Irlo Bronson Highway. Lisa was great from start to finish in dealing with our booking, and her customer service skills are first class.We will definitely book again with Ellis Villas next time we visit Florida, thanks for making it all run so smoothly for us Lisa, regards the Metcalfe family, Barrow In Furness, Cumbria

Fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

'I would just like to say what a fantastic time we had in Florida, of course the parks were amazing, but also a lot has to do with the accommodation. It was amazing

Our villa was everything we expected, beautiful inside and had a lovely pool area, which as you can imagine with young and not so young children were put to good use. The views from the villa was beautiful, overlooking the smaller lake, which had quite a few different species of birds and also turtles. The children also enjoying fishing in the lakes.

The Lake Berkley complex was very private and had excellent security. The welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated, with everything you would need to last a couple of days if necessary.

Thank you Ellis Exclusive Villas for helping all our families have an amazing holiday, and I would highly recommend you to everyone.'

The house was amazing. The presentation was incredible. Everyone of the beds were with teddies. All the house was very cleaned. The swimming pool was very cleaned too. We loved our stay. We are sure our next stay will be in that house.

Just okay

  • 3 of 5

House was nice enough but when they say "self-catering " you'd better believe it. No paper products except a modest amount of toilet paper. No liquid dish soap or laundry detergent. Salt only. Provided instant coffee but no sugar. The heated hot tub wasn't hot. Pool temperature okay. This may all sound picky but after flying cross country and arriving tired I wasn't happy about an immediate trip to Walmart. They said they were concerned about food safety but the "welcome " package would have been more welcoming with small amounts of some basics. Costco anyone. Might not have mattered as much if we had been staying more than 3 days.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Anne. We’re sorry you were unhappy with the welcome basket. The welcome baskets are intended to be a nice “extra” rather than a replacement for your own weekly shopping. If you don’t want to spend your vacation in the supermarket, may I suggest that next time you use our shopping services? For a small fee + the cost of your groceries, we can do a full grocery shop for you and have it waiting in your vacation home when you arrive. If you’d like to use this service, please see our “little extras” pages for more details. I must admit, you do make a good point about the sugar – we will be adding it to our welcome baskets from now on. Thanks again for your feedback. Best wishes, Lisa.

a comfortable base that feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

A welcome note from our host Lisa prior to our arrival gave us great directions and pertinent information on how to get into the house once we arrived. It all went very smoothly. Once we came in to our surprise there was a wonderful welcome basket with all sorts of thoughtful foods so that we didn't need to go back out to the grocery store when we were tired after driving all day. It was great and really made us feel welcome. There is a handy notebook with good information about the home and the area.Everything we needed was in the house including some handy extras. It took us a few days to figure out the area and to realize we had picked a super location in the Kissimmee/Orlando area! Everything is nearby! The Walmart just a stone's throw away is extremely handy. You can even use a little service drive to get in and out of the Walmart parking lot without having to get onto the busy road! That was great. The neighborhood is really nice! There is a guard on duty all the time to let guests in and out. Workmen, guests, deliveries all check in at the gate (URL HIDDEN) is a very safe area. The house location in the neighborhood is great. There are speed bumps throughout which keep traffic going slowly for safety. There are nice sidewalks throughout. It's really fun to take a walk from the house and go around the lake. There are three lakes. The house backs to one of them! It was really fun to watch the birds antics out the back windows. The large lake is wonderful. My husband ran a few laps around it every day. I walked it every day and totally enjoyed sitting at the beach area and enjoying the view and feeling very lucky! We saw a few really cute s turtles around the lake edge and bunches of water birds who love to roost at the small island in the lake in the evenings. We found that the location is close to Disneyworld and all sorts of outlet shopping and wonderful restaurants. It is also about 40 minutes from a wonderful Rail to Trail bike/walk/running trail that is 29 mi long called The Van Fleet state trail- Wonderful! We also found we were only 5 or so minutes from the Shingle State Park. We rented a kayak there and had a great time exploring the river. Dr Phillips park about 20 minutes away was really a great picnic spot and had a dog park which was fun to go and observe. Every time we came back to Lake Berkley Resort we felt like we were home. I think it's what everyone wants when they rent a vacation home.
