Lake Berkley Information: Lake Berkley is an upmarket resort that always boasts immaculately maintained grounds, a 24 hr manned security gate and a wealth of on-site amenities.
The clubhouse features a gym, computer/internet area, swimming pool, jacuzzi and children's splash-pool all complimentary to guests. In addition, there are children's play areas, tennis and volleyball courts with a basketball hoop. Walking, jogging and cycling round the lake is very popular....understandable given the amazing number of restaurants on our doorstep! I'm informed it is a mile around....next time for sure!!
Fishing in such a tranquil environment comes naturally to even the youngest of guests! The main lake which our villa faces on to, is a stocked 14 acre spring fed lake. We have Fishing rods and tackle for you to use but for the very keen fishers, a trip to the Super Wal-Mart close by, will have whatever you need to make sure your story isn't about the one that got away!
Some of our Guests Comments: “We’ve had a fantastic time here at hibiscus on the lake! Very relaxing, especially the sofa’s after a day in the parks. Loved the pool and the view and the space around the house. Thanks for letting us stay; will definitely come back!”
“The villa is beautiful and we have felt very much at home, so much so, we don’t want to leave!”
“The setting is just beautiful and so peaceful but still near enough to all the attractions - and the shopping! We’ve had a wonderful time.”

About Glenda Salter
Family of five from Scotland with a love of the Florida lifestyle! Mum Glenda, Dad Tim plus two teenagers and our 7 year old complete the team!
Glenda Salter purchased this House in 2009
Why Glenda Salter chose Kissimmee
We had holidayed in Florida previously as renters but had never seen a villa with a view quite like this one! With ospreys flying overhead and swooping down to catch the fish in the stocked lake, the sun on the deck from morning till nightfall with it being south facing ....easy decision really!!!
What makes this House unique
The best fishing spot on Lake Berkley is right under the trees on the main lake...beside us! Wonderful to be lying poolside watching nature at it's best...be it feeding the ducks early in the morning or viewing the turtles as they pass by from the comfort of the spa! The sunsets are also entrancing over the lake....timed perfectly with an evening bbq....doesn't get much better for us!

Location of the property was great. Accessible to all attractions with minimal drive time. In the resort itself it was also an awesome location on the cul de sac and quiet with easy access to the lake and walking path. Great for relaxing and my kids enjoyed the game room immensely in between swimming and sunshine.
Great home for a family vacation!
Our family stayed at Hibiscus on the Lake Thanksgiving week, 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were a group of9, 6 adults and 3 children ages 4 and 5. The house was very comfortable and the dedicated play room was a great place for the kids to play safely with only minimal supervision. The pool was heated and we were able to enjoy it on the days we did not spend at Disney. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities and we even managed to make Thanksgiving dinner!
The Disney parks were less than 30 minutes drive and a Walmart and lots of dining options were nearby as well. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again.
Fantastic, well-set up property
We stayed at Tim and Glenda's beautiful house for a week while we did the theme parks in Orlando.
The house was lovely and it was a relaxing, breath of fresh air to return to after a busy day at the theme parks. Our two boys adored the games room and Tim and Glenda have gone to great lengths to make sure there are toys and games for children of all ages. Our only regret was that we spent so much time at the parks that the boys didn't have as much time as they would have liked playing in the games room.
The pool was also lovely and it was fantastic being able to look over the lake from the pool. The boys also enjoyed playing in the nearby estate playground.
Tim and Glenda were very easy to contact and they provided us with lots of useful information ranging from directions to get to their property to recommendations for lots of local things to see and do. They were also very quick to respond to any questions we had.
Overall it was a lovely property and we wouldn't hesitate to come back again.
Fantastic property! Glenda and Tim have gone above and beyond the usual in making their vacation rental home comfortable and accommodating in every way. I was constantly impressed with little things they had in the house to make your stay more enjoyable.
The home is beautiful, and the setting on the lake is the "icing on the cake"!!!
Many thanks for your kind words! Having just returned from a wonderful two weeks ourselves in Florida, it's a delight hearing how much others have enjoyed our home as much as we do! Hurry back! Glenda
Quick family getaway
The house is great with the private pool and view of the lake. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms are spaced out which is good if you have large parties and want your privacy. Close to shopping and restaurants. Enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return.
Many thanks for taking the time to post such a kind review! I always sleep better here than I do at home in Scotland which no doubt is due to the comfort of the beds but also the chilled vibe of Florida! Look forward to welcoming you back another time! Glenda

Many thanks for posting such a wonderful review Michael! Sounds like you had a vacation much like we have just had! Be our pleasure to hear from you sometime in the not too distant future! Glenda
Lake Berkley is situated in Kissimmee, just off the US192, close to the attraction Medieval Times. Our home is less than eight miles from Disney, which is an easy 15 minute drive to get to and around 20 minutes to Seaworld and all the attractions of International Drive. Don't miss out on the Orlando Eye! Universal takes approx. 30 minutes to drive to from Lake Berkley and allow 35 minutes to reach Mall of the Millenia for high end shopping should you wish! To drive to Orlando Airport (MCO)...door to door is 30 minutes, Sanford takes 1 hour.....the beauty of being in Central Florida is that you can also drive to either coast in 1 hour....don't miss Kennedy Space Centre or our family favourite... Legoland!
