About Sue and Dave Fox

We love the Florida lifestyle. We visit our Florida home twice a year and replace or upgrade something every time for continuous improvement.

Sue and Dave Fox purchased this villa in 2008

Why Sue and Dave Fox chose Lake Berkley

We looked at many homes. This one stood out due to the bright airy look and feel. As you walk in the front door, your eyes are drawn straight to the pool deck and lake.

Lake Berkley is a beautiful peaceful resort kept immaculately by our valued team of landscapers.

What makes this villa unique

We love spending time under the lanai on the spacious pool deck relaxing and watching the ever changing wildlife.

Superb villa, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in the villa and thoroughly enjoyed it. The villa has everything you need, including a very relaxing jacuzzi, a games room and even a nice area next to the upstairs bedrooms with a TV and sofa which was an ideal chill-out area for our older son. The resort is very quite, secure and well maintained with some facilities such as tennis courts and a club house. The villa also has a selection of fishing rods and equipment which were brilliant - you can fish in the lake overlooked by the villa or in the larger lake on the resort. My son claims to have caught a 2ft bass, although it apparently escaped before he could take a picture of it !. The resort has easy access to the US192, with a large Walmart only a few minutes drive. Disney, Universal and Old Town are within easy reach. Sue and Dave were brilliant thorough the booking process, with great communications and information. They even arranged for a bottle of wine and card for my daughter who had her 18th birthday. We would have no hesitation recommending this villa. Thank you.

Beautiful, convenient and absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! In fact, we wish we had stayed longer! The location is great in relation to Disney and we were able to enjoy other area attractions as well. The home has everything you need down to the fine details for the kids! We had forgotten an umbrella for our beach trip and we didn't have to buy one! They thought of everything! We will absolutely stay again and have already recommended to several of our friends!! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house for 13 days and had a great time. There were 8 of us and everyone had their own space. The four bathrooms were a huge bonus. The location is close to the Disney Parks and Walmart is very close. Love the gated community. Everyone is extremely friendly including the management company. The house had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the large pool deck as we spent a lot of time outside. We appreciated the late check out. We would definitely stay at this property again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We also spend as much time as possible on the pool deck. We love to sit out there eating breakfast and watching the birds on the lake, or in the evening watch the sunset whilst enjoying a nice glass of wine. We are very lucky with our management company and will pass on your comments. We hope to welcome you back to Brightwater Villa in the not too distant future. Best wishes, Dave and Sue

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this property. It is exactly as described in the writeup. Dave responded immediately to my rental request and to any other emails I sent him before and after the trip. My deposit was returned the day after we got back from vacation. The manager visited us on the first day to see how things were going. He was attentive and quick to respond when we contacted him. We were two families vacationing together. The kids used the game tables in the garage daily and everyone had their own space to wind down and sleep. We did visit some of the parks while we were there. The villa is conveniently located to all of the parks. The commute to Universal was around 20-25 minutes. Magic Kingdom around 15. It was so hot while we were there that we decided to return mid afternoon for a swim and dinner and then go back to the park later in the evening for the fireworks. In addition, we visited friends in New Smyrna, which was about an hour and twenty minutes away. This villa is a great base for your Orlando vacation. It is very nice to get away from the crowds and sit by the pool after a day at the park. I will definitely recommend this villa to friends heading down to Orlando! Thank you Dave and Sue!
