About Joe Wells

My name is Joe and I am a retired U.S. Air Force officer. My wife, Shelby and I are non-smokers, 75 years young. Our three children have blessed us with 11 grandchildren and now, two great-granddaughters and a great-grandson.

Our second home, the townhouse at Lake Berkley Resort, has allowed us to get away during the colder winters in Virginia. With all of the many attractions in the Orlando, Florida area, it has also been a wonderful place to share with the grandchildren.

We would welcome you and ask that you make our home 'Your home away from home!'

Joe Wells purchased this townhome in 2003

This is our second home and we have made many interior improvements such as king and queen 'Serta Perfect Sleeper' mattresses with 3' gem foam mattress toppers, new flat screen HDTVs in the great room and all 4 bedroom, double adjustable spray shower heads in 3 of the 4 bathrooms, new front loading washer and dryer, and new heat pump for improved cooling and heating.

Nice property. Owner friendly and hospitable!

  • 3 of 5
This is a nice property. However the Televisions need to be upgraded. The upstairs master suite had squeaky floors and the winfow shades krpt falling out. The downstairs master bath shower was not working. We did enjoy our stay at your home. We loved the location and was very easy to get around.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. There are 5 color televisions, including 1 in each of the 4 bedrooms.
We have upgraded to flatscreen HDTV's in the Great Room and downstairs Master Suite. We have budgeted to replace the remaining TVs during the next year. I agree with you regarding the vertical shades. The slats fall out when you open and close them. I have been looking for
a more appealing and reliable solution and would welcome suggestions. Thank you for also mentioning the squeaky floor in the upstairs Master Suite. The downstairs Master Bath shower head problem was corrected after your visit. Since this is our second home, I will investigate the sqeaky problem during our next visit. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our "Florida Funshine" home.

Sincerely,

Joe Wells

This place was amazing....great location

  • 5 of 5
This home is a home away from home....but with all the goodies...great location to everything that you would visit florida for! The home has all name brand items from the beautifull bedding and decorations that I could only dream of having in my own home. The whole home is inviting to you and your guests that may visit...great neighbors and gated community makes you feel so safe....something you can't get from a hotel. The staff at the gate is so great....and the pool , oh my gosh....seats in the 9 foot end ....kiddle pool gated so ur little ones can't run into the big pool....just a great peace of mind...we have been twice and plan to go again next year!.....

Truly your home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying here. We absolutely love staying here. This time we traveled with 5 adults and 5 kids. There was more than enough room for all of us. This home has everything plus some that you could ever ask for. The location is great, only a few minutes from the parks!!! Also, Mr. Wells is wonderful to work with. We have decided that everytime we come to Orlando we will be staying here!!

absolutely what we needed

  • 5 of 5
This townhouse is located so close to hwy 192 everything is so accessible! The gated community is so peaceful. The inside was very clean and we loved the layout. My elderly parents stayed in the spacious suite downstairs and my grandsons had their own room upstairs. Lots of wonderful bathrooms! We were so busy with Discovery Cove, Disney and Seaworld we only used the pools once but our little guy loved the splash pool. I would recommend this rental to anyone and if I ever go back to Kissimmee I will hope to rent it again. The owner is so nice.
