Gonna keep this short. This villa is a great place to stay, in a great location, and Stephen the owner a great person to deal with.
Kids absolutely loved the place. Wife very happy too. So I am more than happy !!
Stayed in several villas near Disney over the years, but this one was by far the best.
We will be back here in 2015.
Left on 08/20/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 20, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
We visited for 10 days in aug 2013. We chose this villa based on the reviews we had read, everything written about this villa is true. Location of Lake Berkley is perfect, 15 minutes from Disney, 3 minutes from Walmart.
The villa has everything you need, and it is all kept in top class condition. Dad loved the Gas BBQ, I loved sitting out watching the wildlife on the lake, the kids just adored being in the pool.
We enjoyed some of the many free facilities of Lake Berkley including the fishing, tennis and 2 Gyms (one inside, one outside).
Stephen the owner goes out of his way to make sure you have all the information you need, cheapest car hire, where to buy theme park tickets etc.
We give this villa (and service) a well-deserved 5 stars.
Left on 06/26/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 26, 2013Stayed Jun 2013
Let me start off by saying that Stephen was an absolute delight to deal with from the outset, answering questions before we booked, then helping us with car hire and Disney tickets.
The check in process couldn't be easier, Stephen provides a keycode access for the villa, no keys to collect after a long flight.
The house was really nice and all 4 bedrooms were a good size. There was a TV in every bedroom and my sons enjoyed the playstation in their bedroom.
The master bedroom had a very nice ensuite and a huge closet :)
Kitchen was a great size with all you need to cook family meals.
Livingroom was decorated very tastefully and had a nice big TV and dvd player.
However what we used and enjoyed the most was theprivate pool and outside patio area and the bbq. :) A+++A
The location was great, such a nice neighbourhood and close to all amenities.
I suggest to anyone who is looking to do this type of rental...Do not hesitate to rent with Stephen.

When we were searching for a villa near Disney there were so many options to choose from. However from the very first contact with Stephen the owner we could tell that he cared about his villa and guests. The quote we got was fully explained, there were no hidden extras. This was not the cheapest villa we could have booked, but I am so pleased we spent a bit more to get a modern, clean and excellently located villa.
We just returned from 10 days at this villa May 2013.We had a fabulous time at this Lake Berkley Villa. The villa is exactly as shown in the photos and very clean. Overall feel was very "at home" and we enjoyed our stay very much. Location was perfect and very convenient to everything...theme parks and stores, restaurants, etc. But also far away enough so that we can enjoy the peace & quiet. It was our special vacation celebrating 20 years married, and with our 2 children. Everything was perfect and we had a great 'family' vacation. Having lazy breakfast in the morning together on the pool deck patio, hanging out at the pool to cool off, just watching movies together in the livingroom laughing. Kids loved watching TV in their own bedroom, and helping themselves to snacks and drinks from the large fridge.
Lake Berkley Resort is gated, secure and very safe. Everything is immaculately kept... We will definitely love to come back again.
Left on 01/13/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jan 13, 2013Stayed Jan 2013
Just returned from week over the Jan 2013 new year period.
Wonderful house! The house was the most complete vacation home I have ever stayed in - meaning there was nothing I wanted and didn't have; from cooking supplies, furnishings, I pod player, games, books, linens and towels, etc. The home was very well maintained and the decor was comfortable and stylish.
We paid slightly more ($100 per week) than we have paid for other homes in the past, but it was money very well spent. In life you get what you pay for, and the small extra we paid was well worth the 5 star facilities both at the villa and the resort.
The whole family loved the private pool and spa, and the view over the lake was amazing, and at night-time it was fabulous to hear the wildlife across the lake. Most nights we had a BBQ and it was so nice to have the options of gas (convenience)or charcoal (for a better taste).
On the day before we left we put all our clothes in the villa washing machine, then the dryer. It was great to think we would not be arriving home with lots of washing to do.
The Lake Berkley community the home was located in was very well maintained and the park, lakes, tennis/basketball courts, gym were all in excellent condition. With the 24/7 gated entrance we felt very safe and secure. The location was fantastic with plenty of restaurants, WalMart, and shops close by and very easy to get to the theme parks. Would highly recommend this home and we will book this vill again for our stay later in 2013. That will be the first time we have stayed twice in the same villa, so I guess that says everything. And finally a big thank you to Stephen the owner for all his help with booking and theme park information.
Left on 12/17/2012 for a stay in December 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Dec 17, 2012Stayed Dec 2012
Recently returned from a fantastic family holiday in Florida in Dec 2012 which was made extremely comfortable due to the facilities and location offered with this villa.
The central location meant that you could go in either direction to the parks with them all being easily accessible and yet the villa is situated in a very safe and tranquil community., We have three children aged 17, 15, and 7 the age group can make it difficult to ensure that there is something for everyone however with the space and layout of the villa this made it very easy for everyone to find a space for their own quiet time. Tvs in every room and the Playstation and I pod player were a big bonus. The kids also enjoyed the free use of the resorts facilities, including the tennis court, basketball court, playpark and fishing in the lake. This is a 24/7 gated community so we always felt the kids were very safe.
The villa is of a high standard with the fixtures and fittings and everything is provided, from corkscrew through to free wifi and even a wireless printer (great for printing out maps and shopping info). The pool is the highlight of the villa, with its own spa and wonderful view of the lake. We enjoyed use of both the gas and charcoal Bbqs.
There are also plenty of restaurants and shops close by with the nearest outlet a mere 10 minutes away (not always good for the wallet!!!) but great fun!!!
The information pack provided prior to travel was a great help with the directions to the property clear and precise making the journey after a long flight as easy as possible and with the key code to entry you did not have to go to collect keys or rely on others which was a bonus as our flight was delayed and therefore we did not have to stress about keeping someone waiting.
Fabulous villa that we would not hesitate to use again should we visit Orlando again.
Thank you it really did feel like a home from home and was very welcoming.
Left on 10/21/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 21, 2012Stayed Oct 2012
We stayed for 2 weeks at this villa in Oct 2012. It was absolutely fantastic. We had read the reviews, seen the photos and thought "can it be that good", but every word and photo is true. The Lake Berkley Resort is so well cared for, immaculate grounds and 2 great lakes, I fished in both. At the entrance to the Resort you are always greeted by a friendly guard and immediately you can see that you have arrived paradise neighborhood.
The villa has a beautiful view of the lake, it is very peaceful, just the sounds of wildlife. Most morning when we had breakfast we had a family of ducks come and visit us !!
The villa itself is very spacious and every room is equipped with everything you would need. Indeed my spouse actually bought some things used in the villa which we didn't have at home !!
I took my laptop and connected to the internet every day, it is very very fast. Watched quite a few Premiership games on Fox Sports on the TV, they show most Prem games .
The kids loved the pool, it was a great place to relax and have fun after a hard day at the theme parks. In the evening we relaxed in the spa with a glass of wine after the kids were in bed. What a way to end a fun filled family day!!! Memories to last a lifetime.
The airport was about 30 minutes away . Another thing we like about the location of this house is that it's off the main tourist strip and totally quiet. We will never stay at a hotel again. Renting houses with your own personal pool is the only way to go.
Left on 02/01/2011 for a stay in November 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Feb 1, 2011Stayed Nov 2010
We stayed here in Nov 2010. This villa is in awesome location, we reached Disney in under 10 minutes and Universal in about 20 minutes. Best of all Kissimmee Golf Club is a 10 minute drive away. 18 holes for just $30 including golf cart. The villa really does has everything included, it is better equipped than our own home !!! We visit Disney every year, have stayed in other villas, but this was by far the best we have stayed in, and will be reserving for next year. It is also cheaper than a decent hotel !!! The kids loved the pool and it was great sitting out both in the morning for breakfast, and again in the evening listing to the wildlife. Caught some fish on the lake, it seems to be well stocked. Lake Berkley is a gated community and we felt very safe and secure.
Left on 01/25/2011 for a stay in January 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jan 25, 2011Stayed Jan 2011
We stayed here in Jan 2011 and loved this villa it has everything and is furnished to a very high standard. We knew we could get something a little cheaper, but friends recommended this villa to us and wow what a great villa. This was our first time in Orlando, big treat for the kids (and us). The villa is perfectly located, about 10 mins from Disney. It is close to the 192 and yet the resort is away from the hustle and bustle. The villa itself has one of the best locations on the resort with a very private pool and spa with a fantastic view over the lake. The kids loved having their own room with Cable TV and PlayStation, although they spent many hours too in the pool. Previous guests had left lots of pool inflatables, we of course kept this tradition going when we left. We had a very relaxing time. If kids are happy then parents are happy!! We only needed 3 bedrooms, but we were told by friends that you get a much nicer and bigger villa if you go for a 4 bed one, they were right, and it didn't cost any more. When you arrive at the resort (Lake Berkley) you immediately feel safe and secure (with the 24/7 manned gate) and then you see how clean and picturesque the resort is. Plus you have the fishing, tennis, exercise are, clubhouse, gym, jogging trail, Happimag Bar etc. We were originally planning o using one of the hotels at Disney, but I know 100% that we chose the right decision by using this villa. Being able to keep the fridge stocked with drinks and be able to use the BBQ saved us a small fortune versus staying in a hotel. We hope to visit Orlando again next year and will definitely be booking the villa again. Many thanks Stephen for all the useful info and for allowing us to share your beautiful home.
