South Facing Pool and spa with an extended pool deck. Luxury 5 Bedroom Villa on Lake Berkley resort, Kissimmee. Guarded and gated community. One storey villa situated in the prestigious Lake Berkley Resort gated community. South facing pool and spa for all day sun. This is a basic must in Florida. Why go to the sun in order to sit in the shade for most of the day. South facing means maximum sun. The Spa is great to relax in after a long day at the parks.There is a shaded area also available by pool. Special Features: Fans in every bedroom and living area. Fully air conditioned games room with a full sized slate pool table as well as a Foosball table. We are just after putting in a PlayStation 4 with an assortment of games along with a large wall mounted TV and surround sound system. This room also has a seating area so the kids can stay here while you relax in the main seated area. We have a Pool Bathroom, so if the kids feel the need!! it is close by. Extended pool deck- more room to lie out in the sun. A smaller pool deck means you get splashed if there are people in the pool. External lighting so you can see the way after you get back from the parks. All our beds are real beds. We do not have sofas that convert into beds and include these in our sleeping accommodation because we know no one wants to sleep in the sitting room!!

About Kevin and Anne Sayers
Hi, My name is Kevin and my wife's name is Anne. We have three children Lily-Rose, Eli and Alfie. We bought the home in 2004 way before they all arrived and it has proved the best thing we ever did. Our children love going over there and hopefully when they grow up they will thank me and say I was the coolest Dad ever for buying that place there.
Kevin and Anne Sayers purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Kevin and Anne Sayers chose Lake Berkley
When we were buying in 2004 it was the nicest one shown to us at the time. We have done many improvements and upgrades to it since, some twice since; and it does not look a bit like it did back then.
What makes this Villa unique
Without a doubt our home is much closer to all the theme parks than anywhere on highway 27. Our home is situated within a minute of Medieval Times and the super Wal-Mart on highway 192. If your only spending a few weeks in the Disney area, then why spend that precious time in your car going from H27 to the parks.

Lovely, family-friendly home from home
This was our second stay at this villa. In all our travels it's the only holiday home we've liked so much we've returned. And we hope to stay there again!
Both times, it's been a great place to stay. Really clean and comfortable, with a nice pool (not deep so ideal for younger kids) and a games room. The location is really quiet, and you feel very safe as there's 24 hour security at the gatehouse. It's really easy to relax here. (Although possibly it wouldn't be if you went with small kids who love running around whilst drinking Ribena, as most of the furnishings are white! Luckily our kids are beyond the slopping juice on the rugs stage of life.)
After a day exploring Disney, it was lovely to come back for a dip in the pool. And on the days when we weren't off visiting Mickey Mouse, we could sit in the sun as much as we liked as the pool side has sunshine (and a handy bit of shade) all day.
The nature reserve a couple of minutes walk away was great for an early morning run.
We found some great restaurants within a 5 - 10 minute drive, and the Walmart two minutes' drive away is very handy if you decide to eat in. We'd also recommend a trip across to the Kennedy Space Centre, which even my kids had to admit was really fun and interesting!
The villa owners were really helpful, and the one time we needed to call the local manager (about a minor glitch with the house alarm, during our first visit) he arrived within 5 minutes and fixed the problem straight away.
Would definitely recommend this place.
Thank you very much for your 5* review of our home. We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed our home for the second time around, we must of done something right to earn your custom again. We always try and please our guests as best we can. This is shown by the change in the décor of our home from the last time you visited. We never sit on our hands when it comes to our home in Kissimmee, FL and are always trying out new things and improving the experience for future guests.
Like you said, our Management company are only a quick phone call away and if you, or any of our future guests have any problems, they be around to our home in a hurry. They have been our MC for quiet sometime now and we are very pleased with them.
As you point out, our home is very close to some great family restaurants and also a quick drive to the Disney parks and all other attractions. When booking your accommodation it is important to bear this in mind. Who wants to spend half of their precious holiday time stuck in a car toing and froing from the parks. Our home is very centrally located.
We look forward to accommodating you and your family again in 2019 and wish you all the best in the future.

Amazing villa and amazing owners
From the very first moment we made contact with Kevin and Anne until after our arrival home the quality of customer service and the villa itself were second to none.
The booking process was very straightforward and simple. Any questions we had (and we had many) were answered quickly and concisely. After we paid our deposit Kevin called me and we had a long chat about our upcoming holiday in Orlando. He put my mind totally at ease about booking a private villa instead of a hotel, which we had done previously. He gave me a lot of insider information on how to save a lot of money on car hire, park tickets etc.
Upon entering the villa our slight doubts were completely erased. This home is everything and more than what we expected. You can tell that the owners take great pride in their home and really look after it extremely well. Not only was it spotlessly clean but they had left some small Christmas gifts for us and our three small children under the tree.We did have one major problem - the children started fighting over the Disney bedroom our solution was to push the beds together to make one large bed for them all, three happy children again!!!
All the furniture seemed brand new and of a very high standard. After a long journey from the UK it was lovely to relax into the comfy leather reclining sofa and just chill and take it all in while the kids played with the toys the owners kindly provided.
The next day we all jumped into the pool which was heated (so worth the extra few dollars). Then it was off on the short spin to Walmart for the groceries and breakfast. Later the tickets for the parks were delivered to the villa and the holiday had really begun.
In short we were extremely happy with this home and how we were treated by Kevin and Anne. We did pay slightly more for this home than what some other owners were asking but it was so worth it. You really do get what you pay for and we will be back to 1080 Lake Berkley Drive again, especially now that we have a promise of a repeat booking discount.
Thank you again Kevin and Anne for a great holiday.
We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed our villa and your holiday.
As you said we do keep our home well and whenever we visit with our family we always carry out some form of upgrade or improvement. Indeed we feel our home in Kissimmee is a hobby more than a chore and we love to see it looking well. Hopefully it will give our future guests as much joy as it gives our family whenever we go to Florida.
Don't forget to e mail me when you are booking again so I can arrange your discount.
Lovely villa with a lake nearby
This is a big and comfortable house with roomy bedrooms and all you need to find yourself at home. The house is fully equipped, very clean and it also has a fantastic swimming pool, and for a reasonable extra fee we could have hot water in it, which was great. As regards the location, it is in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by nature and a wonderful lake where you can walk around and find some games for the kids as well. In spite of being in a quiet area, you can find all types of shopping malls and amenities very near the neighborhood, where you'll be able to get everything you need for a wonderful stay.
If you're looking for a comfortable home, fully equipped and in a quiet area this is the place for you and your family, as it has everything to make your stay unforgettable!
Our home is located very close to all the theme parks. Only eight minutes by car to the Disney parks and twenty to Universal and Sea world. The new rejuvenated Disney Springs is only ten minutes up Highway 535 and makes for a great night out for all the family. When your there try Ghiradellie's ice cream parlour.....yum yum. Cirque de sol is up here, as well as cinemas, plenty of shopping and some great themed restaurants.
