Would stay there again in a heart beat!

What can I say about this property? Firstly Denise & Ian you have a beautiful villa, It was perfect for what we needed, it is spacious, clean, has everything you could possibly need and that pool/jacuzzi is just sublime. The villa is in a quiet gated area where the staff are friendly and will help in any way they can, the fact that it was 24hour security meant we didn't have to worry about anything and could just enjoy our holiday. The location of the villa is perfect, it has everything on its doorstep along the 192, including some lovely restaurants, shops and the most amazing crazy golf. Would definitely reccommend a visit to Chicago uno's they do the most amazing pizzas!

During the holiday we had a slight problem with the pool heater, but Richard organised help immediately to try and sort the problem. The staff who came to look at the pool were extremely friendly and sorted the problem quickly.

Would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a stress free holiday, a perfect location and time to relax and soak up the sun!

Thank you Denise and Ian.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely review. It was unfortunate that the pool pump went down whilst you were there, but it is great to hear that Richard was able to have it replaced so quickly and that it didn't spoil your enjoyment. Unfortunately things do occasionally go wrong, but it is very reassuring that our management team were very professional and resolved the problem quickly. We do hope you come back and stay with us in future, and many thanks for the recommendation of Chicago uno's - we have never been there before, so we will definitely try that when we are over there next. Many thanks once again for your kind words, very best wishes from Denise and Ian

Relaxing, comfortable, lovely villa in a brilliant location.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! The villa is absolutely brilliant. It is well equipped, comfortable, spacious and everything you could want.It was also spotless and very well maintained.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and really didn't want it to end. Staying with me and my mum and Grandma (from the UK) were my aunt and cousin who actually live near Orlando but stayed with us for their own holiday and they loved it and also wanted to stay longer.

The location is pretty much perfect. Easy access to all the theme parks (and as my cousin pointed out not on toll roads!) and the main roads to pretty much anywhere you need or want to go . The nearest Walmart is a 3 minute drive and is so big you won't need to find any other shop for the entire holiday as it will have everything you need.

The house is on a residential complex and this made it feel that bit more secure and it was very quiet. The staff at the gate were friendly and helpful. We did visit the club house to have a look and it did look like a great pool but as the pool at the villa was so nice and private we actually didn't use it but I can see it would be great for families with children. The pool at the villa overlooks the lake and that made for hours of fun bird watching for my Grandma. We did see some turtles too (but no alligators). It also meant it was quiet and peaceful.

Not having a front door key and using a key pad to get in is may seem a strange thing to comment on but it made a huge difference. No forgetting keys or losing them at Disney meant one less thing to think about!

Inside the villa there was enough space for all of us and there was everything we needed. Although we had no children with us there is equipment like a cot, buggy and high chair for them and they would find it a great place to stay. My Grandma uses a wheelchair and has very limited mobility and there was plenty of space for us to maneuver her around and one of the en-suites has a step in shower with built in seats which was great for her.

I had quite a few queries and questions for Denise before and during our holiday and every time she responded quickly and was extremely helpful which was a huge help and we were very grateful that we felt able to communicate with someone as we kept thinking of last minute things!

When (not if!) we return to Florida we would love to stay here again. Thanks for helping to make a brilliant holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Claire, many thanks for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us and it is great to hear that the villa met all your expectations. It is also lovely to hear that your Grandma also enjoyed herself and that wheelchair access worked well for her. It would be wonderful to have you stay with us again in the future, so please make yourself known to us if, or when, you return. Many thanks once again for your fantastic review. Have a great New Year. Very best wishes, Denise and Ian

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this home for 3 weeks in September. The villa is great value for money, very clean and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. The pool area is great, it got the sun for most of the day and we enjoyed watching the wildlife on the little lake behind it (including a gator!)

We love staying in Lake Berkley, there is a Walmart a 2 minute drive away and it's close to the theme parks.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the lovely review. It really is so important to us to hear that everything was to your liking and the home was as you expected. We also love to sit outside and watch the wildlife - Florida has so much to offer in that regard. Please come back and stay someday? Very best wishes from Ian and Denise

Lovely villa, perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this villa, which is very clean and has everything you will need for your stay. The pool is lovely to come back to after a day at the parks. The villa is exactly as described, with little extras such as pool towels, and pool toys and would love to stay here again if we returned to Orlando.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We do try our best to make the villa a real home from home and ensure that all is in order for guests. It is great to hear that the "small" things are also appreciated too. Cleanliness is vital and we do make that an absolute priority. Alvelina, our cleaner, has looked after the home for many years now and takes great pride in hearing reviews such as this. So thank you once again for your kind remarks and we would love to have you return someday. Very best wishes from Denise and Ian

I would buy this house

  • 5 of 5

If you have been to Lake Berkley before, you would not have stayed in a better house than this. It is good value for money, the best location, the pool area is large and ideal for relaxing. Book early and you will not be disappointed.

Made our holiday more special

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa to stay in. The property is very well situated for the Disney and Universal parks and there is a Wal Mart less than 5 minutes away by car. The villa itself has attention to detail and so makes it a home from home, my children absolutely loved the pool and wanted to be in this every day. The kitchen area is well maintained which suited our needs with having most of our meals there, the outside BBQ also added to this and we used this a few times. Ian and Denise have thought of everything for making things easier by providing bath towels, beach towels and hair dryer, etc. The garage also provided the use of a washing machine and dryer along with an iron and ironing board. The garage also had those little extras for example pool toys and car booster seats and pushchair. Every bedroom has large storage along with many coat hangers. I have been to Florida a few times and found this was by far the best place I have stayed and would definitely book again if I was going over there, I would definitely recommend this as a lovely place to stay and have to my family and friends since I came home. Lake Berkley Resort is also very well maintained and kept clean and tidy. Our holiday plans changed last minute and Ian and Denise were also very accommodating with this.
