The Lake House is our stunning lake front villa with a pool on the prestigious Lake Berkley Resort just off 1-92 and a genuine 10 minutes from Disney and Sea World, 15 minutes from Universal Studios and International Drive, shopping and restaurants. This is our family vacation home and we have spared no expense in up-grading it to the highest standards.
Our villa is beautiful and is lavishly decorated and has a stunning premier view overlooking and fronting the lake which is not overlooked. Your morning starts with the sun rising over the tall trees draped with spanish moss at the opposite side of the lake. You can see the mist rising over the lake surface and you have full sun all day on your deck. You can enjoy dining Al Fresco while savoring your beautiful lake view. At night, you can unwind after a hectic day at the park and sit on your private deck watching the beautiful moon rise over the lake and listen to the cicadas, toads and birds returning to rest on the island on the middle of the lake. Our oversized pool deck has 6 loungers (upgraded this year) , a dining table and chairs, a charcoal barbecue and optional pool heat. We have hedging around the pool cage sides for added privacy - its just you and your family. Once you vacation in Lake Berkley, a gated and 24 hour manned resort you will not want to stay in other resorts. The resort is beautiful and meticulously maintained by staff and our villa is the best reason to keep coming back as it has been upgraded to our exacting standards as we vacation here too. Our villa is our home- not an investment property maintained by only a management company although we have an excellent one to ensure our exacting standards are met for all of our guests.
Our villa is fully air-conditioned (upgraded to a six bedroom house standard) and we have free wireless internet access (Brighthouse) and cable TV in all rooms. We have a 50' flat screen TV with a home theatre system and cable TV and PS-3 in our main living area. We have two living areas with comfortable over-stuffed furniture (We just added a new sectional leather sofa in our front living area overlooking the lake). We also have two dining areas with upgraded furniture. We installed new kitchen units with beautiful black granite surfaces and recessed lighting and we have stainless steel appliances. Our stainless steel refrigerator comes complete with surface water cooler and ice facilities.
Our villa has four bedrooms, all of which have beautiful designer furniture and bedding. We have a master en-suite with beautiful dark wood furniture and an over-sized Caribbean style fan. It has a flat screen TV and DVD which leads to a large oversized master en-suite with a jacuzzi bath, a separate shower and toilet areas and a large walk in closet big enough to store those extra cases you will fill with designer goodies at the nearby outlet mall !!! (Buena Vista 5 minutes and Vineland 10minutes away). Our master bedroom overlooks the lake and enjoys a stunning lake front view. We also have a queen en-suite bedroom with beautiful cream furniture, and a twin bedroom with a beautiful lake view also. Unique to our villa and a huge hit with the kids, is our themed Mickey and Minnie kids room. This room has a double bed under twin bunk and we installed miniature furniture with a Mickey TV and tons and tons of stuffed Disney toys. We also have a sleeper queen sofa in the lounge and a single rollaway bed if your little one wants to sleep closer to you.
We are constantly upgrading our villa and recently, we installed a white granite topped vanity over a black base in our master en-suite.
We also provide a full range of baby equipment, including a high chair, cot with bedding, a stroller and baby monitor.
We have a games room with a state of the art slate Proline pool table -very heavy but worth it, table football, electronic mini-basketball and darts board and a PS-2 and 3 and games console (games, videos and books provided). We also provide fishing equipment so you can fish the fully stocked lake from your pool deck. For hot days at the beach, we also provide beach chairs, sun umbrellas and a cooler and the nearest beaches, Cocoa Beach and New Smyrna Beach are 60 minutes away.
We have upgraded our furniture - no expense spared - no Craig's lists and no package furniture!!!!! We also have beautiful accessories and art-work in all our rooms to make you feel pampered and our windows are decorated with beautiful white wood blinds and luxurious curtains.
Our property has a 24 hour security alarm and our management also provides a 24 hour call-out service for your added peace of mind.
This is a truly beautiful villa and Lake Berkley Resort itself, is one of the most exclusive and sought after estates. The resort is gated and it is also manned 24 hours a day assuring your security and peace of mind as our guests. The resort is beautifully maintained with manicured lawns and offers a jogging trail, lake walk, a clubhouse with games internet and exercise rooms, a bar and coffee room.

Our villa is around the corner from a Super-Walmart and Aldi and a Super Target and Publix are less than 5 minutes away. You can play crazy golf and go go-cart racing just around the corner.
Lake Berkley Resort is central to everywhere and is 5 minutes from Lake Buena Vista Outlet Mall, 10 minutes from Disney, Sea World, and Vineland Premium Outlet Mall and 15 minutes from I-Drive, Universal Studios, Florida Mall and Millennium Malls. It is 10 minutes from Boggy Creek Airboats and 5 minutes from horse riding. You will not have to endure long traffic jams on the 1-27 to return home after a long day at the park. On 1-92 there is a great range of restaurants catering for all tastes, including Logan's Roadhouse, Smokey Bones, Joe's Crabshack, Texas steakhouse, Landry's, Red Lobster, Bahama Breeze, Crackerbarrel, Santa Fe Cattle Ranch, Carrabas, Chilis, Perkins, I-Hop and Boston Market.

About Michael Lane
We are Mike and Val Lane and we bought the Lake House in 2007. Once we arrived in Lake Berkely Resort, set in beautiful grounds with mature oaks and three lakes, we knew we wanted a villa on Lake Berkley Drive as this has the best premier lake view fronting the lake and it is not overlooked and private. Once the villa was ours, we modernized our villa, updating the furniture, accessories and bedding with modern luxurious furniture, and installed a beautiful new granite kitchen and added a new flat screen TV. We have 2 boys so we know how to cater for youngsters and what they like. As we vacation here 3 times a year, our villa has to be special to us so we spared no expense in upgrading the fixtures as you will see once you vacation here. As we vacation here so often, we are also able to address any issues guests may have and ensure that all appliances and fixtures are operating efficiently. We are constantly changing and upgrading our home and this is reflected by the care our guests take while staying with us and the fact that many of our guests return year after year. Woken you will love our villa as much as we do we know you and your family will have a special and magical vacation when you choose our villa.
Michael Lane purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Michael Lane chose Kissimmee
The Lake House is our oasis. It is our refuge and we constantly update it so it remains current and modern - after all, it is our home from home. We treat this home better than our own home and we genuinely appreciate it when our guests return and we appreciate when they make thoughtful comments in our guest book about vacations they have had as we know our guests will love our place as much as we do and thank you to all of you for that. Our villa is really special. It is so special to wake in the morning and open the blinds and see the ducks swimming in the lake as the sun is rising. It is so special to sit in the pool in the evening and watch the birds return to the island on the lake preparing for the night. It is so special to take family walks around the resort and create memories that will live on forever. We strive to keep our decor fresh and modern. This year we installed new carpet in our front living room and we added a leather sectional sofa to our main living area. We bought new pool towels for our guests comfort and we constantly review everything in the villa because we are here 3 times a year to ensure everything is working efficiently. Last year we bought top grade loungers for our guests ( thank you for the comments in the guest book) A new PS-3 has recently been added also.
What makes this Villa unique

It also has many many stuffed Disney animals to comfort and excite our little ones. Our internet access is free and high-speed - a must for today's busy lifestyle and we have cable TV with the option of renting movies also. We also have DVDs for those of you that have special movies the kids watch again and again. How many villas have a games room with a state of the art grey lined slate Proline pool table ? You have not played pool unless you have played don one of these !!!!! How many have 6 overstuffed loungers from Palm Casual on your lake side deck ?

Amazing vacation rental ❤️
Amazing vacation rental. My family adore this property. We stay here every time that we visit Florida and we are returning yet again this June. It truly is a wonderful home from home. From the moment you walk through the door to the time you leave, everything you could possibly want is catered for in this rental. It is impeccably clean and spacious. The kitchen contains everything you would have at home in your own kitchen. They have thought of everything. Mike and Val are fabulous to deal with and are so accommodating of everything. I highly recommend this property to everyone who wants a truly wonderful vacation. Jillian Cronin
Thank you so much for your review. I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your time in Lake Berkley and I look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
Val and Mike
lovely clean property - would definitely stay here again
some initial minor niggles but Michael sorted out very quickly. Wish we could have stayed longer than 3 nights. Spacious and clean, convenient for all amenities and theme parks.
we've stayed in many Florida rental properties over the years, this is far and away the best - great house, great views, in a really nice community 2 minutes away from main routes to everything
Its good to hear from you and I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay in Lake Berkley.
I wish you and yours all the best for 2018 and look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
We have been to Florida as a Family every year for the past 7 years and stayed in different Villas, this was our second time at this one and is without doubt the best one we have stayed at. From the minute you walk in the front door you can tell it’s going to be a great holiday. The Villa is spotless clean with fantastic appliances including cable tv ( And premier league football) the beds are so comfortable you can relax as if you were at home in your own bed. But the best thing about this Villa is without doubt the glorious view over the lake by the pool. Sitting outside watching the wildlife and the sun coming up over the horizon. I could talk about that view all day. Lake Berkley is a secure gated community with a massive Walmart just down the road and more restaurants than you could eat at. One recommendation is look up capones dinner show up on line it’s just down the road and well worth it. The parks are only 15 minutes away which is great. Communication with mike and val was easy and you always get an answer. We hope to go again soon and without doubt this is where we want to stay.
Thank you so much Joe. As always its a pleasure to hear from you and I look forward to your next visit.
All the best to you and your family for 2018
Amazing villa, stunning lake view
This is the most amazing villa we have stayed in, really clean and recently updated. Fabulous view of the lake and close to all parks and amenities, Walmart 2 minute drive. Pool area has sun all day long. The owner is always so helpful and easy to deal with. Have stayed numerous times in this villa and will always look forward to returning, we have recommended this villa to family, friends and colleagues who also book whenever visiting Orlando.
Thank you so much Sandra. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
Very nice and well-equipped house far away from the massive traffic in the Orlando area
Premier location close to Disney in one of the top Orlando resorts, gated and manned 24 hrs for extra peace of mind. Two children's playgrounds on site, tennis, volleyball, recreational centre, beautiful walking trails on site with stocked bass in lake and a gator !!!!! We are 10 minutes form Disney, 15 from Seaworld and 20 minutes from MCO airport. There is a Super- Walmart around the corner and Target and Public close by. Many good restaurants are also close i.e. Red Lobster, Logans, Outback Steakhouse, Smoky Bones TO MENTION BUT A FEW. Who wants to be stuck on the I-27 in long lines trying to get home after a day at Disney or Universal ?
