We are both Londoner's who now live Norfolk, which is about 100 miles to the North East of London. We live in a rural location and about a 30 minute drive to the seaside.

We have 2 grown up children both working and living near London. At home, we have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 2 ponds with several species of fish

Alan and Janet Barnard purchased this house in 2011

We are from the UK and are both retired. We, have been visiting Florida's Kissimmee / Orlando areas for many years, first staying in Hotels and then moving on to house rentals. Having fallen in love with the area, we decided to buy in May 2011, and Lake Berkley being our favorite Resort area was the obvious choice for us.

The location of the Resort, and it's close proximity to the Disney, Universal and Sea World locations, plus the 24 hour security made the decision easy.

We always had this picture in our heads of having breakfast on our own balcony looking out over palm trees, and this house provided us with that

We enjoy eating out, and most restaurants that we use can be found within 5 miles of the property. And, although we are not 'Shop Till You Drop' people, we do enjoy shopping for bargains, and the 'Orlando Premium Outlets', the 'Loop' and the new 'Lake Buena Vista' shopping centres are all less than 25 minutes away.

So for us .....JUST PERFECT!

Brilliant - exactly as described

We have just returned from a magical family holiday in Florida staying at this lovely property. Prior to leaving, the owners were really helpful and provided us with lots of information (the loan of the Satnav was also extremely useful). I am always nervous about renting property that hasn't been personally recommended to me, but I needn't have been, this is exactly as the pictures and owners describe, in fact it exceeded our expectations.
It's clean, spacious (especially for our family of four), tastefully decorated, well equipped (especially the kitchen) and very comfortable, we certainly slept well after walking for miles around the Parks. It's also very well located, just around the corner from a massive Walmart, close to some good restaurants yet still far enough away from the busy roads to be peaceful.
We hit the Parks hard so didn't spend as much time on the Lake Berkley Resort as I would have liked. But the community pool was a stone's throw from the back door and immaculately kept. We also enjoyed a couple of walks around the lake but didn't see any gators!
The Parks themselves were a max of 20 mins drive away so this property was a great base for exploring them all.
I would definitely recommend this property and hope to be able to visit again one day. Thank you very much Alan & Janet.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for this very positive review. The location and setting of Lake Berkley is, in our opinion 2nd to none, and this review supports this. We are planning further upgrades to the house in 2014, and hope that this will lead to further positive reviews.

Perfect family townhouse

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2013

We're just back from spending two weeks in Alan and Janet's townhouse and it was just perfect for us. We have two children 10 and 13, so our daughter loved the Disney themed room and our teenager had the double bedroom. All the beds were really comfortable and we slept well. The villa was exactly as the photos show, with a nice outlook towards the pool and the clubhouse.

The townhouse has everything you might possibly need, though we didn't do any cooking with the selection of restaurants close by - Smokey Bones, Chilis and Steak'n'Shake are our favourites. Walmart, is only a few minutes drive for holiday supplies. This is our second visit to Lake Berkley, so we knew how peaceful the resort was, which is ideal after a day at the parks. The 24 hour security also gives you peace of mind. All the parks are easily accessible from Lake Berkley and we also visited the Kennedy Space Centre and a beach at Melbourne on the Space Coast.

We had great communication from owners Alan and Janet, before, during and after our visit and I'd have no hesitation in recommending their townhouse for a great WDW holiday - we would certainly stay there again.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for the very positive review of the house and Lake Berkley Resort. It's also good that the 24 Security gets a "Thumbs-Up", we feel that having a person on site 24/7 is far preferable to having an entry code on an unmanned resort.
We are very pleased that you had a great and "Busy" vacation, and hopefully you will pay us a return visit in the near future.

Lake Berkley Townhouse

I really enjoyed my stay at this townhouse. The townhouse was exactly the way the photos indicated. This is a great place for a small family who wants great amenities, cleanliness, and a secure location. The bedrooms are of good size and the kitchen is well stocked with appliances needed for your trip. The home is very clean and well maintained. There were many cable channels to choose from. The guards at Lake Berkley were very polite and professional. Although I didn't get a chance to enjoy the amenities of the resort, I will definitely consider this place again.
Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your positive comments. Hopefully you will pay us a return visit in the near future.

Fantastic stay

We stayed in this fab town house from 11th August for two weeks.
There was me wife and two son aged 11 and 14.
We were all impressed as soon as we arrived as everyting was nice and tidy and clean.
All the bedrooms were off a good size along with the 2 bathrooms.
My 11 old especially loved the tv in the room with loads of good channels( including Disney)
the kitchen had everyting we needed with a massive fridge.
The resort was nice and quiet and we always felt safe with the very efficient and friendly gate house security staff.
The pool was nice and warm but could get full very quick if the resort was busy.
As we were in the middle of August, i was surprised how quiet the resort was but this suited us perfrectly and we were not bothered but any noise.
I can recommend this town house enough and we would definately stay here again.
The owners always answered my questions promptly and gave me the info i needed.
The only negative was the management company Magical memories.
we told them twice that a chair was broke when we arrived and it remained broke for the two weeks we were there.
The did not listen to us but that is a very small thing in the whole holiday.
Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review. Its always pleasing to get positive feedback. Regarding the problem with our Management Company, we will get this resolved asap and ensure that any future problems are acted upon within an acceptable time frame.
