Beautiful 5 bedroom home with private pool overlooking a lake in the gated resort community Lake Berkley in Kissimmee, Florida. The home is located 15 minutes away from Walt Disney World and in the heart of the best shopping and attractions Central Florida has to offer!
Fully equipped with all necessary kitchen needs, bed and bath linens, and fully furnished. Enjoy complimentary cable tv, local calls and wifi with your rental. The garage in this house has been converted into a game room with a billiards and air hockey table for guest enjoyment.
Our service staff can assist you in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
The villa is located in a great community and is so handy to the theme parks and for other activities such as shopping and dining out. The trip right into Disney took only 15 to 20 minutes, with Disney Springs even nearer and it is an easy drive up to Universal or SeaWorld. Whilst the resort was very quiet and peaceful whilst we were there, within just 5 to 10 minutes drive, you can reach any type of restaurant, supermarket, pharmacy or fast food outlet and of course a whole lot of retail outlets!
The villa was clean and comfortable, with plenty of kitchen utensils and all manner of spare linens and blankets should you need them. Although we didn't use any of it, the villa also had heaps of baby equipment. The south facing pool area is warm and sunny and has a lovely view out over the lake. The pool is good with plenty of toys to play with such as balls, noodles and so on. In the garage is a decent pool table and also table tennis, along with a host of outside sports equipment ranging from basketballs to fishing rods and nets.
The villa had good TVs in each bedroom, plus a huge one in the lounge and the Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. The booking process was efficient and reliable and we had no issues sorting it all out from far away in New Zealand. If we ever return to Florida, the first thing we will do is see if we can book this villa again.
The house was a good size, plenty of space for the 5 of us.
There were a few things though that made the stay less comfortable....the beds were very soft and we didn't sleep very well at all for the first few nights. I called to see if anything could be done but was told the beds were brand new. They did come out a couple of times to see if the beds could be turned or flipped but they couldn't so we just had to put up with it. It was only the larger beds, so the children were comfortable at least. During one of the afternoon storms one section of the roof meshing came loose and was hanging down. I asked for it to be fixed the next day but that couldn't be done, so without prior knowledge someone arrived at 8 the next morning and started hammering and banging and woke everyone up, not the kind of morning we wanted from our holiday! Also during the 2 week stay in the night we had some cockroaches (5 in total) visit us....luckily the children did not see them as i dealt with them quickly, but i was then concerned that they would see one and freak out. A pest control guy came out and said they come up through the drains because being so close to the lake and he put some powder around the perimeter but they still appeared. The staff didn't always communicate well and would just let themselves in to the house and be there when we got in!
Location was great. did 5 parks, all fab. Wouldn't stay at this particular house again though, shame because of the view.
We were really happy with our house rental. The house was beautiful, clean, very large home that felt like home. Everything was clean and ready for us to go. The pool was refreshing and a bonus was the island in the middle of the lake. Neighbors were very friendly. It was nice having everything so close including the parks. The company behind the rentals were very nice and accommodating to your needs and questions.
Our overall impression of the Lake Berkley is that we loved our stay at this property! It is private and you feel secured and safe! The house is located close to everything! The house is spacious and clean. We had a super family vacation and we would definitely go back for a lot more stays without a question! The kids enjoyed it as well as the grown ups!
