Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely villa in a super location, great to have the lake and watch all the wild life.



I can happily say this was the best property we have stayed in, lovely pool area and I like the little clothes dryer. Great to have a safe, for the first time, lovely comfy bed & pillows



I will have no hesitation in recommending the villa to whoever I can and we all thank you so very much for such a lovely home.







We hope to return in the future, all the very best.

Beautiful location - loved it !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in villas previously , but this villa is definitely the best. Located very close to Walmart for all your daily requirements and close to "Medieval Times" for a fun night of entertainment.

Lake Berkley is a neat , tidy , well kept walled community. One way in/out with a guard gives a safe and secure reassurance . The back of the villa (pool) is South facing and backs onto the lake itself .... beautiful to wake up to ! The villa is comfortable , with the kitchen as the "hub" and most rooms leading off from there. The bedrooms are a good size and nicely decorated. Out through the patio doors is the pool and jacuzzi which again are in very good condition .

Would I stay here again ? Absolutely !

Would I recommend to my best friend ? Most definitely !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review Jeff. We are delighted to read that our home was the perfect base for your Orlando adventure! We agree, the pool and deck area is just lovely - especially when you are just chilling out with a glass (plastic of course!!) of your favorite beverage - however our view on this may be considered a little biased! Along with our local management team, we try to ensure our home is always kept in tip top shape and provides everything our guests may need to enjoy their stay. Great that you may return again - make it soon! Best wishes.

Our Disney Dreams came true with a little help from Riva Del Lago!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of renting a villa through owners direct and the internet so needless to say I was a bit worried as you read so many horror stories. The owners of the villa where very understanding and so helpful in waylaying my fears. I am so pleased we chose Riva Del Lago, it is in a fabulous location in Kissimmee and really is just 25 minutes from the Disney attractions. The villa itself is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and well looked after. The owners have provided a wealth of soft toys/games for children and the pool table in the games room was lovely for an evening of relaxing. The fishing equipment was great too - the lake holds some huge fish which my husband was able to catch and return. The pool is well maintained and there are pool toys which my 3 and 5 year old enjoyed! We wouldn't hesitate to return - in fact we hope to return in 2017/18!

Owner's Response: Genuine owners fully understand that booking a villa direct can sometimes be a worry, so we are delighted to know we alleviated all your fears! A simple phone call can offer immeasurable reassurance! Great to know someone has finally managed to land 'the big one' in the lake - hope he took a picture before returning it to the water! Thank you for your very positive feedback - it is much appreciated, Look forward to welcoming you back in 2017!

Fantastic Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first Christmas away from home, however this fantastic villa felt like a home from home as soon as we arrived, made even more complete with a tree left out ready for us to trim.

The Villa itself was very comfortable with everything available that you could need. Spotless and well presented with comfortable & stylish furnishings, a lovely pool with lake views and for anybody with kids older than 10…..the most important thing a fast internet connection!

Lake Berkly is a fantastic complex, a great location handy for bars/nightlife, supermarkets (Walmart is walkable) and its proximity to the parks. As well as having its own super facilities - if you feel like a lazy day there is still lots to keep everybody amused without leaving the complex, and it has a great sense of safety.

We enjoyed every moment of our stay in this fabulous spacious home, and hope we will be able to return again soon

wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

It was a joy to stay at this property for our week in Kissimmee. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, with everything you could possibly need and more!!! The children adored the swimming pool, in fact we had trouble getting them out of it to visit the parks. The games room was also a great hit, as were the soft toys and games provided. It was a lovely touch to leave fishing gear to use and the children and my husband enjoyed fishing in the lake.

Lake Berkeley itself is a great place to stay. Close proximity to all the main parks, Walmart supermarket and places to eat minutes away. Security on the gate is excellent and you feel very safe. It is beautifully kept with excellent facilities. We enjoyed a game of tennis, walks around the lake and turtle spotting. We saw quite a few. After hectic days out it was a pleasure to return to Lake Berkeley and Riva del Lago. Thank you for a wonderful stay,

Once again at Lake Berkley!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from holiday having stayed at Riva Del Lago. We had shared Winter Haven with another family on our previous stay.

That was 2 years ago and the bar had been set high! We knew that the owners have high standards which are also reflected in Riva Del Lago

The house was very clean and finished to a high standard. The pictures are a true reflection of what you get.

A comprehensive Information Pack is within the villa but should you require the assistance of the Management Company, they are located very close-by and are very helpful and informative. ( It was due to a component failure halfway through our stay that I need their assistance). It is only when an issue arises and it is how that issue is dealt with that indicates on how good the Management team and owners are.

It seems strange to be writing what is a very positive review and mention a problem but these things do occur. On this occasion, everything was done to ensure that we were happy. You are genuinely treated as a valued customer and the owners very much aware that this is your special holiday and will ensure that the villa helps make it so!

The house is decorated and finished to a very high standard and has everything you require. Even down to luggage scales. ( If you go shopping at all, you will understand how these are indeed very handy when preparing to come home !)

The villa is located on the lake and it was a pleasure to sit and relax by the pool and enjoy the local wildlife following a busy day at the parks.

Lake Berkley itself is ideally located only a short distance from the 192 and access to all the theme parks and restaurants .It is a gated community and very quiet and well maintained.

Within 10mins along the 192 there is the historic downtown Kissimmee which is very much a hidden gem. Well worth a wander round on a nice evening. Along in the opposite direction and you have Old Town area and the surrounding attractions there. Yes, there are communities closer to Disney but Orlando offers so much more and there may be days when a relaxing day by the pool is on the agenda

The fact that we have booked again for next year reflects our confidence that this is a thoroughly enjoyable home to stay in.

There are thousands of rental villas available and selecting which one can be somewhat daunting with such a choice, particularly for first timers.

Rest assured that this home removes any worries about the standard of home and the surroundings will not disappoint either.

Just returned from a wonderful 12 night stay at Riva del Lago. Villa was as described (even nicer). Everything a family would want was there. This was our second time to rent with Mike and Geraldine and they are a pleasure to deal with, extremely helpful. Management Company also extremely helpful if needed. I would highly recommend this villa to my family and friends.
