We liked it very much!

  • 5 of 5

The villa worked out very well for us. We were eight persons. The villa is well equipped and nicely decorated. We are very pleased with our stay and would happily have stayed another few days to relax in the house.

We will gladly return another year!

Great house - exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time staying at the house and it was exactly as described. We were 2 families staying together (4 adults, 4 kids (6, 5, and 3 years old) and the house was spacious and well-laid out. We had an issue with water not draining from the dishwasher but called the management team and someone was there the next day to fix it. Very fast customer service.

Denise was also very responsive when we booked and after our stay to check in on our vacation. We left an iPad there and Denise contacted us the same day and it was promptly sent back to us.

We were delighted by a few things:

- the proximity to groceries (Super Wal-mart is very close) and liquor stores

- pool toys, basketball, tennis racquets, fishing rods in the garage (we added to the collection by leaving some water squirters)

- laundry on site

- BBQ was ready for use

- a mini library with books and games

- WiFi included and very easy to connect

- the surrounding neighbourhood was nice and quiet with a larger pool and splash pad in the community common area

- the pool and backyard are screened so it is nice for sitting during the day and evening - no bugs!

- a well documented manual when you get there about the house, pool, BBQ, garbage day, etc. and who to contact for tickets, attractions or if there are any issues with the house

Our only issue was understanding the pool heat before we go there. We paid extra to have the heat on in February but the way the system works is that it takes heat from the air to heat the pool. It is well explained in the manual when you get there but we didn't realize it would never get very hot since it wasn't very hot outside (again, it was February). That being said, the kids were in the pool for hours a day and the hot spa was very hot when we used it in the evening/night. This is not unique to the house - just generally how pool heaters work in Florida since most months you don't need them at all.

We would recommend to family and friends and would stay again if we were visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Martha for your kind review. We were sorry to hear that you had a problem with the dishwasher but it is very gratifying that our management team (Scott and Karen) responded promptly and fixed it for you. Swimming pool heaters work just like air conditioning units, only in reverse. Instead of removing heat from the inside of the home and expelling it to the outside air, a pool heater takes heat from the outside air and uses a clever heat exchange mechanism to transfer it into the pool water. Swimming pool heat pumps can extract useful heat energy in air temperatures even as low as 45–50°F, so they are very effective in Florida’s mild climate. However, we are aware that the winter temperatures in Florida (and the entire USA for that matter in 2014) have been unseasonably low and as a consequence the pool heater may not achieve its maximum during very cold periods. However, the spa temperature can be set independently from the pool and because it is a smaller volume of water can easily be heated to above 90F even during these cold spells. It is great to hear that the children were still able to enjoy the pool though, even if the temperature was slightly down. We are pleased that you had a good time and that the villa met your expectations. We would love to have you stay with us in future. Thank you again. Denise and Ian.

Wonderful Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for our Orlando vacation. We had 2 families including 2 teenage boys with autism (one with a broken leg at the time) and this house was perfect for us. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and the boys really enjoyed the safe outside space where we enjoyed walks as well as the WiFi for their games and iPods. The villa is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants and a short drive to all of the major theme parks. We thoroughly enjoyed the villa and will definitely consider staying here again in the future!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your very kind review. It is lovely to hear that you had a great time, even though one of your party had a broken leg! We do so hope that is well on the mend now and hope that you might consider staying with us again sometime soon! Thank you again. Kind regards Denise and Ian.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

This is also our second time at this villa and just as lovely as the first.we arrived on Christmas Day and as the last reviewer described the villa has certainly been kept in top condition.Denise and Ian do everything right.to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.Situated on a gated community you still have that air of privacy with the beautiful surroundings and it is ideally located for the192 with shops restaurants ant the theme parks.The boys enjoyed catching bass in the lake and swimming in the pool on New Year's Eve.We had another fantastic holiday staying at this villa and would recommend that you make some magical memories and choose to stay here too.

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle for your lovely review. Its great to hear that you found things as you expected and your second stay was just as enjoyable as your first and especially so as you arrived on Christmas day. We too have enjoyed swimming under the stars on New Years eve - and that is always special. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and hopefully we will see you again in the future. Very best wishes, Ian and Denise

Why did we come home ?

  • 5 of 5

Why did we come home? This was the second time in 18 months we had stayed at this fabulous villa and everything was as we expected and more.

As we were due to arrive on Thanksgiving Day we asked if essential supplies could be waiting for us...you know milk, tea & wine. Denise even asked which region we would like the wine from. How's that for service? Everything was bought and nothing was too much trouble. Karen from the Management Team is particularly pleasant and very helpful.

The location of the villa is perfect for accessing all theme parks, shopping malls and places to eat. The Red Lobster being our favourite meant that we ate here most nights but you won't be disappointed if you ventured to the town of Celebration and sampled the fine cuisine and the wonderful atmosphere in both the Town Tavern and Columbia.

Lake Berkley itself is a lovely location and my

wife (Lesley) and I even jogged round the big lake close by the villa under the watchful eye of an alligator one morning. Safe to say that we stuck to the main paths after that.

On a general holiday note and as a committed Christmas fan (and big kid at heart) there really is no better place to be in December. From Mickeys Xmas party at Magic Kingdom to the Osbourne Lights at Hollywood Studios, Polar Express at Sea World to Busch Gardens Christmas Town the whole place is Xmas personified. The crowning glory though was probably seeing Whoopi Goldberg and the Candlelit Processional at Epcot, stunning, well worth a look on YouTube, you'll want to go in person.

Overall this was a fabulous holiday with Denise and Ian's fabulous villa making a great base. From the superb bedrooms (and comfortable beds) to the 3 bathrooms, all spotlessly clean and well kitted out you start everyday relaxed and refreshed. And then to come home to a cold glass of wine and a relax round, or in,the pool with a bit of TV watching thrown in, while your clothes are being washed and dried in excellent laundry room facilities for the 2nd year running we cannot praise the villa,the owners or the management company enough.

We will certainly return if not this year definitely next and won't need to look anywhere for somewhere to stay but here.

From me,Lesley and my Mam & Dad massive thanks to Denise & Ian, & the management company. Anyone who wants to rent a villa don't look any further, just leave a few weeks for me.

Cheers

Derek

Owner's Response: Wow!!! What an ace review Derek/Lesley!! Thank you so much!! We do try our best to keep our standards high and will do our very best to accommodate guests requests whenever we can. You are absolutely right about Scott and Karen, our management team, who do a great job looking after the villa and ensuring guests are looked after and enjoy their stay. Your other comments about our location and your Florida comments in general sum Lake Berkeley and Florida up very well indeed and I guess that's why so many guests return. Thank you so much again for your great review and we do so hope you come back and stay with us very soon. Very best wishes, Denise and Ian

Fantastic Again

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this holiday Villa and we can't wait to go back for a third. The estate of Lake Berkley is so peacefull and welcoming you feel so safe in a gated community with guards at the gate controlling who comes in. As for the Fantastic Villa I noticed the owners had spent some money on painting and new furniture to keep the Villa in tip top condition which was nice. We had a couple of days of really bad weather including a Tornado warning while we were there so we stayed in the villa so it was great having a cable TV that allows you to watch Movies on Demand and you can Record programs while you are out at the parks to watch In the evenings. The beds are so comfy and you just feel so at home there. You can't beat sitting outside having your morning coffee by the pool and watching the fantastic wildlife at the lake. Like I said you can't beat this place and the owners Ian and Denise are always a pleasure to deal with and answer all questions straight away (got to meet them again which was nice) if you are looking for the best steaks in Florida go to Charlie's on the 192 (Just near the celebration turn off) it's a bit more pricey than a normal steak house but you won't regret it ( I left a card in the Villa hope you don't mind D & I) it's so easy to get to the parks from here and all the other attractions. We even went to NASA and it was about an hour and ten minutes away, what a great day we had, but if you go get there early as it shuts at Five and there is loads to see ( Do Atlantis First). Anyway once again a massive thank you to Ian and Dennise that holiday made our year. We really hope to be able to go again next year. Joe & Sue.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Joe and Sue for a great review. Its good to hear that your second visit was as good as the first! We do try and keep the villa in good shape and upgrade periodically to enhance guests experiences. It was great to meet you guys again and hopefully we will have another opportunity to meet in the future. We are writing this on Christmas Eve, so a very merry Christmas to you both, and to all our past and future guests. We hope that our past guests come back and stay sometime soon and sincerely hope that our future guests have a wonderful vacation. Very best wishes, from Ian and Denise
