Lake Berkley Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 Bed Rms,4 Baths, Luxury Lake Villa, Pool & Spa,Game Rm.,Gated 24 hrs,Sleeps 14

Welcome to paradise!! Just 10 minutes from Disney attractions. Enjoy the pristine view, peaceful meals, tropical birds and watch the bass jump as you sit poolside, overlooking our island of nature. Our newer, spacious, two-story villa, situated in the upscale gated community of Lake Berkley Resort, appeals to all ages. The villa features five bedrooms and a combination game room/sixth bedroom. Two private master suites are available; one has a walkout to the heated, enclosed south/east facing swimming pool and 32-jet spa. The house also features four full baths, one with a whirlpool bathtub,18-foot family room ceilings, DVDs, billiard table, tennis rackets, fishing poles. There is plenty of room for 14 guests, with all of the amenities you'd expect in a luxury home. The resort boasts a clubhouse, exercise room and game rooms, community swimming pool, stocked spring-fed fishing lake, an offshore sun beach with a scenic fishing deck, offering breathtaking views!!!

Attractions Orlando, Florida: Orlando, Florida, the world´s biggest playground, was named in honor of Orlando Reeves, an army sentry killed during the first Seminole War. What began in the 1830´s as an army outpost grew into an agricultural supply line with the expansion of The South Florida Railroad. Orlando became a center for cattle, cotton, and citrus plantations.

Very secretly, beginning in the early 60´s, an anonymous investor bought thousands of acres of what was then farmland, orange groves, and swamp marshes. News of this activity reached the press, and he was forced to divulge his plan to build a one hundred million dollar resort and theme park. He envisioned an oasis where travelers could take their families and live out the kind of fantasies he had as a child. Walt Disney´s secret was out, and the hysteria surrounding the possibility of a tourism center in Central Florida caused civic leaders to grant special zoning laws to help bring his dream to fruition. In 1971 Disney World opened its doors.

Attractions/ Restaurants: The resort boasts a clubhouse with gathering, exercise, and game rooms, community swimming pool and offshore sun beach with a scenic, stocked fishing lake, and lookout pier offering a breathtaking view of Lake Berkley. Other attractions include a playground, tennis court, volleyball, and walking/biking paths.

The home is conveniently located within walking distance of a 24-hour superstore and an unending variety of restaurants including Medieval Times. Serious shoppers can shop until they drop at the fabulous Florida Mall and the new Mill World attractions are nearby, including the Walt Disney Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Epcot Center, Animal Kingdom, Sea World, Busch Gardens, water parks, and the Kennedy Space Center. (The main entrance to Disney World is less than a ten-minute drive away!) Some of the world's best golf courses are located in the area.

Adventure: If you want a bit of nationalism during your vacation, take a day and head east, approximately fifty miles, to Cape Canaveral, home of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the John F. Kennedy Space Center. Follow a history of how the space program began and its successes and failures that brought it to its current status as one of the most advanced research centers in the world. Talk to an active astronaut and find out what it´s like to leave the security of Earth and frolic in outer space.

Florida may be known as 'The Sunshine State', but for people seeking an active vacation with a little bit of adventure, Orlando, 'The City Beautiful', just may be the brightest spot.

About Gary & Karen Ellis

I am a builder/construction person in our home state of Michigan, and my wife is a master gardener. We love our Florida home and have made many improvements to this upscale location in a 24-hr gated community.

Gary & Karen Ellis purchased this villa in 2001

Why Gary & Karen Ellis chose Lake Berkley

Situated in an ideal spot on the lake, guests can relax with beautiful scenery, while also enjoying a large pool area, a 32-jet heated spa. There is a landscape hedge on both sides of our pool for privacy with the rear open, and no fence to spoil the view.The entire lanai is screened in, so there are no bugs! The pool faces southeast so there is a.m. and p.m. sun. For those who prefer a shady area, the covered part of the lanai will provide this, after mid-morning. The pool will be partially shaded by mid-afternoon.

What makes this villa unique

We have included all linens, cooking utensils, dishes, glasses, towels, hair dryers and an iron. Also available are tennis rackets and fishing poles. Our gated community offers a clubhouse with a large lap heated pool, children's splash area with water guns and fountains, a hot tub with indoor game room, pool tables, exercise room. The resort lake is stocked with 4,000 fish and boasts a lookout pier and walking paths. One of the best locations overlooking our island of nature with tropical birds and you can site poolside and watch the bass jump!! Our 24-hour Super-center Wal-Mart is within walking distance and will fulfill all your groceries, banking, and pharmacy needs. Disney attractions are within 10 minutes!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

hi Gary just wanted to let you know we arrived back in Ireland this evening. We were heartbroken leaving your stunning villa, everyone of us had a superb holiday from the little ones right up to the grandparents in our party the villa was so spacious and comfortable and even though the weather in our second week was not so good everyone had a blast, I don't think sitting in my back garden for breakfast tomorrow will ever compare to my breakfast at your pool overlooking the Island! I have left a little gift from Ireland with the management lady its means a hundred thousand welcomes in Irish!! Many many thanx again and maybe in a few years we will be lucky enough to visit again Px

FABULOUS HOSTS and BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here last fall for a week and it was truly wonderful. The home was very clean and spacious and the host went out of his way to call every couple days to make sure everything was going well. The only think I felt it lacked was the sufficient cooking items (pots and pans, large toaster) for a home that large. I mentioned that to Gary after our stay and he immediately bought a commerical set of circulon cooking items! I can not wait to go back so I can use them all.

Also the lake was great for fishing, only problem was we had "visiting gator" but it really quite fun becuase the "gator patrol" came daily trying to catch him but as soon as they came he would hide! But not to worry normally they are not in the lake, but someone how this one found his way there.

Excellent Home for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property!!! We had a family of 10 staying there and there was plenty of room. The view of the lake was so beautiful. Our grandchildren loved the game room and the pool. My husband, son and son-in-law loved the fishing and the alligator and turtles. We spent most of the time at the house relaxing. It was the best vacation. The owner was great to deal with and will hope to go back again!!

Great Location Villa

  • 3 of 5
Nice house for a small group that want to "get out and about" for Disney or Golf. It's a nice property but did not live up to the standards expected from the photographs and description. We have stayed in many properties in the area over the years and always get a "wow!" when we enter for the first time. This property did not do that for us. Maybe this was because we stayed later in the year (September) after a very busy summer? The property lacked some features expected in properties of this standard. The property also showed signs of a wear and tear and although most of the issues were minor, there were too many for what we expected. The owner responded very well to our feedback and has assured me that the issues have all been resolved.
Located in a safe and quality gated community with nice walks around the lake. The community clubhouse has limited use as there is no bar or restaurant and the communal pool is not used as most properties have their own pool.
This property would suit a family group of 8 to 10 or 4 or 5 individuals on, say, a golf holiday. The "sixth bedroom" is a temporary bed put up in the garage/games room.
Lake Berkley is not far from golf, shops and restaurants making it a great base for a vacation.
I'm sure future visitors will get a much better experience following the work done by the owners.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank the guest for the review. There were some items that needed addressing and we immediately took action to correct these issues. One of areas of concern was the pool screen and pool area that was damaged during a heavy storm. It is now corrected. We do have an onsite management company that lives within the resort.
The home has five bedrooms and the game room is also used as the sixth bedroom with a converted queen sized sofa bed.
In the past we have had many families with up to 14 guests that were satisfied with the accommodations. Our pool area is enlarged and is spacious for larger groups and has a southeast exposure. Our pool area also has a lanai with table and chairs for those seeking some shade.
In April 2014 we have purchased a quality living room set, including a sectional. We also installed new 32 inch flat screen televisions in four bedrooms and a 55 inch in the game room.
Input from our visitors is important to us and we will put forth all our efforts to maintain a higher standard home for our guests.
Sincerely,
Gary & Karen Ellis

Great venue for family gatherings

  • 4 of 5
We were a family of 10 including 4 children ranging from 4-12 yo. The week has gone by and the whole family will keep fond memories of our stay in this beautiful house.
What we have appreciated most: the pool area +++ & the million$$$ view of the island & birds, the size of the rooms, the many bathrooms,tvs in every room (kids), the impeccable resort+++ & security. TV, games room, fans in rooms, guest house and aminities, home decor. The owner, Gary, contacted us the second evening we arrived and acted promptly on our concerns.When we made suggestions, he was open and showed genuine interest for his guests. We would not hesitate to go back or recommend it

Perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
My first impression of this property, was that it was exactly as seen on the website. Totally perfect!!!
Everything that we needed was there for our use and we honestly felt like we were home.
It was great to hear from Gary after we arrived, very nice personal touch.
We loved this house so much we recommended it to my husbands brother.....now their family will be enjoying it soon, wish I could stow away and go again.
I think my grand kids explained it best, when they said it was the best vacation they had ever been on :)))
Thanks again!!!!!!

Great place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We were really pleased with the house, very clean as well. Everything was there that we needed. Would highly recommend this place and would definetely rent again. This is conviently located to the Disney attractions. We enjoyed using the pool and hot tub and the water was great with the use of the heater. Only issue we had was that we had to leave it to go home and back to work (lol).

Thanks for sharing your beutiful home with us. We celebrated our 30 year anniversary and was nice to have our family stay with us.
