Overview

About the property

Villa in Lake Berkley, Kissimmee, Orlando, Florida - Secluded Gated Community, Less than 10 Mins from Disney

Our spacious villa has a wealth of living space in which to relax after a busy day at the parks. The extended deck, pool and spa overlook the middle lake and our games room is a must for the kids. We have endeavoured to provide a home from home with that added touch of luxury and the curved Italian leather couches invite you to put your feet up in style and watch your favourite TV channel on our large sceen TV!

About Mike Rickell

We live in the North of England and have 2 grown up offspring (they hate being described as our 'children')! I am an enthusiastic golfer albeit not a very good one and a keen gardener.

Mike Rickell purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mike Rickell chose Lake Berkley

We have spent every holiday since 1995 in Orlando! We rented numerous villas in various locations before discovering Lake Berkley in 2002. We knew that we had found an absolute gem of a location, both in it's position for all the parks and the sheer natural beauty of the resort. An early morning walk around the main lake as the sun comes up is an absolute must! The tranquility of Lake Berkley is hard to explain when you consider it is only a couple of minutes from highway 192 and all the hustle and bustle. Apart from the occasional helicopter or police siren disturbing the peace, you can easily think you are miles from anywhere, yet there's a 24 hour Wal*Mart within walking distance!

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is so spacious that even when there are 8 of us we can all find a space to do what pleases us most. The quiet lounge is a TV free zone (for Mum who loves a good book). The family room has an enormous TV for us sport enthusiasts and the games room entertains the young at heart. The extended pool deck means the sun worshippers can catch the rays from dawn until late afternoon by which time they've had enough and want to go shopping! Add to that the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in and the unique contemporary style of the furnishings there's no wonder no-one ever wants to go home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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,

Owner's Response: Thank you Mark, for taking the time to review our home and planning to book with us again! We love repeat offenders! Photos on websites are all very well, but there is nothing better than a positive review from a happy guest to reassure potential renters that everything is as it should be. As you have appreciated first hand, we take great pride in offering for rent, a stunning home in an equally stunning location. Fingers crossed we get to welcome you back in 2017!
