The upstairs master suite has a queen-size bed,flat screen HDTV, DVD, in-suite bath with garden tub, and shuttered window overlooking the great room. Patio doors in this master suite lead onto a balcony with a courtyard view of the clubhouse, heated community pool, children's splash pool and jacuzzi.

In addition to the kitchen, counter bar, dining room, and living room with cathedral ceiling, the main living level has a washer/dryer area and a half-bath. Lake Berkley Resort has a 2,000 square-foot clubhouse featuring a fitness center, party area, Internet computer, and a large heated swimming pool, children's splash pool and jacuzzi spa.

Lake Berkley Resort is seven miles from the Disney World East Gate. And it is within walking distance of Medieval Times Dinner Theater and a Super Wal-Mart. MGM, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet-N-Wild, Sea World, Busch Gardens, Cypress Gardens, Discovery Cove, and many other attractions are minutes away. Some of the finest golf courses are nearby. The Kissimmee Golf Club is just five minutes away.

The Kennedy Space Center and Atlantic beaches are 45 minutes away by car. Gulf beaches are 60 minutes away. Major cruise lines, including Disney, depart from Port Canaveral less than an hour away.

Your reservation for the Lake Berkley Resort Luxury Townhouse will be confirmed with a $100 deposit. There is a full refund on cancellations if made within 5 business days of the arrival date. Thereafter, you would be responsible only for the deposit.

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, 77 years young. Our three children have blessed us with 11 grandchildren and now, three great granddaughters and two great grandsons.

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

Why Joe Wells chose Disney / Orlando

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.

Awesome Rental

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, Joe Wells, is an awesome owner, who responds quickly to emails and truly cares that we had a great stay.

The house rental was everything we expected and more. The security at the gate was number for me because I can be a real chicken at times, and knowing that it is a gated community was great.

The moment we walked into the home, we felt like it was our home. It was clean and every sign alerted us to the dos and donts and that is very important to anyone who rents a vacation home, especially me because I am a stickler to the rules.

The house was clean and very comfortable. This rental is literally close to everything you can think you want to do and more, from all Disney Parks, Sea World, Gatorland, Helicopter tours, stores, restaurants. It is centrally minutes away from everywhere. I would definitely rent from Joe again, and in this resort. It was well worth it and my family and I enjoyed it greatly. I give it a 10.

Great Place to Stat

  • 4 of 5

Our daughter and her family live in Naples Fl and we live in Royston Ga, so we were looking for a place we could meet at and have a vacation. I looked online and found this place, and I was so thrilled with its accommodations. Our grandchildren loved the pool and it was big enough for us all. We will definitely stay here again.
