Welcome to paradise!! Just 10 minutes from Disney attractions. Enjoy the pristine view, peaceful meals, tropical birds and watch the bass jump as you sit poolside, overlooking our island of nature. Our newer, spacious, two-story villa, situated in the upscale gated community of Lake Berkley Resort, appeals to all ages. The villa features five bedrooms and a combination game room/sixth bedroom. Two private master suites are available; one has a walkout to the heated, enclosed south/east facing swimming pool and 32-jet spa. The house also features four full baths, one with a whirlpool bathtub,18-foot family room ceilings, DVDs, billiard table, tennis rackets, fishing poles. There is plenty of room for 14 guests, with all of the amenities you'd expect in a luxury home. The resort boasts a clubhouse, exercise room and game rooms, community swimming pool, stocked spring-fed fishing lake, an offshore sun beach with a scenic fishing deck, offering breathtaking views!!!

Attractions Orlando, Florida: Orlando, Florida, the world´s biggest playground, was named in honor of Orlando Reeves, an army sentry killed during the first Seminole War. What began in the 1830´s as an army outpost grew into an agricultural supply line with the expansion of The South Florida Railroad. Orlando became a center for cattle, cotton, and citrus plantations.

Very secretly, beginning in the early 60´s, an anonymous investor bought thousands of acres of what was then farmland, orange groves, and swamp marshes. News of this activity reached the press, and he was forced to divulge his plan to build a one hundred million dollar resort and theme park. He envisioned an oasis where travelers could take their families and live out the kind of fantasies he had as a child. Walt Disney´s secret was out, and the hysteria surrounding the possibility of a tourism center in Central Florida caused civic leaders to grant special zoning laws to help bring his dream to fruition. In 1971 Disney World opened its doors.

Attractions/ Restaurants: The resort boasts a clubhouse with gathering, exercise, and game rooms, community swimming pool and offshore sun beach with a scenic, stocked fishing lake, and lookout pier offering a breathtaking view of Lake Berkley. Other attractions include a playground, tennis court, volleyball, and walking/biking paths.

The home is conveniently located within walking distance of a 24-hour superstore and an unending variety of restaurants including Medieval Times. Serious shoppers can shop until they drop at the fabulous Florida Mall and the new Mill World attractions are nearby, including the Walt Disney Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Epcot Center, Animal Kingdom, Sea World, Busch Gardens, water parks, and the Kennedy Space Center. (The main entrance to Disney World is less than a ten-minute drive away!) Some of the world's best golf courses are located in the area.

Adventure: If you want a bit of nationalism during your vacation, take a day and head east, approximately fifty miles, to Cape Canaveral, home of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the John F. Kennedy Space Center. Follow a history of how the space program began and its successes and failures that brought it to its current status as one of the most advanced research centers in the world. Talk to an active astronaut and find out what it´s like to leave the security of Earth and frolic in outer space.

Florida may be known as 'The Sunshine State', but for people seeking an active vacation with a little bit of adventure, Orlando, 'The City Beautiful', just may be the brightest spot.

Guestbook comments from the manager

hi Gary just wanted to let you know we arrived back in Ireland this evening. We were heartbroken leaving your stunning villa, everyone of us had a superb holiday from the little ones right up to the grandparents in our party the villa was so spacious and comfortable and even though the weather in our second week was not so good everyone had a blast, I don't think sitting in my back garden for breakfast tomorrow will ever compare to my breakfast at your pool overlooking the Island! I have left a little gift from Ireland with the management lady its means a hundred thousand welcomes in Irish!! Many many thanx again and maybe in a few years we will be lucky enough to visit again Px

FABULOUS HOSTS and BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here last fall for a week and it was truly wonderful. The home was very clean and spacious and the host went out of his way to call every couple days to make sure everything was going well. The only think I felt it lacked was the sufficient cooking items (pots and pans, large toaster) for a home that large. I mentioned that to Gary after our stay and he immediately bought a commerical set of circulon cooking items! I can not wait to go back so I can use them all.

Also the lake was great for fishing, only problem was we had "visiting gator" but it really quite fun becuase the "gator patrol" came daily trying to catch him but as soon as they came he would hide! But not to worry normally they are not in the lake, but someone how this one found his way there.

Great venue for family gatherings

  • 4 of 5
We were a family of 10 including 4 children ranging from 4-12 yo. The week has gone by and the whole family will keep fond memories of our stay in this beautiful house.
What we have appreciated most: the pool area +++ & the million$$$ view of the island & birds, the size of the rooms, the many bathrooms,tvs in every room (kids), the impeccable resort+++ & security. TV, games room, fans in rooms, guest house and aminities, home decor. The owner, Gary, contacted us the second evening we arrived and acted promptly on our concerns.When we made suggestions, he was open and showed genuine interest for his guests. We would not hesitate to go back or recommend it

Perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
My first impression of this property, was that it was exactly as seen on the website. Totally perfect!!!
Everything that we needed was there for our use and we honestly felt like we were home.
It was great to hear from Gary after we arrived, very nice personal touch.
We loved this house so much we recommended it to my husbands brother.....now their family will be enjoying it soon, wish I could stow away and go again.
I think my grand kids explained it best, when they said it was the best vacation they had ever been on :)))
Thanks again!!!!!!

Great place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We were really pleased with the house, very clean as well. Everything was there that we needed. Would highly recommend this place and would definetely rent again. This is conviently located to the Disney attractions. We enjoyed using the pool and hot tub and the water was great with the use of the heater. Only issue we had was that we had to leave it to go home and back to work (lol).

Thanks for sharing your beutiful home with us. We celebrated our 30 year anniversary and was nice to have our family stay with us.

Fantastic Fall Break

  • 5 of 5
What a week! The Ellis Home in the gated community on the lake was spectacular. Its a true 5 bedroom home with the game room having a hide-a-way bed as the 6th. We had everything we needed but the super walmart was within walking distance if we missed something. We had an incredible week with our three small children and enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. We loved the lake behind their home and the park. The homeowners were easy to get in touch with as we prepared for the fall break and the management company was on top of everything we had questions about. The neatest thing about the staying in Lake Berkley was the bird sanctuary and the alligators. They visited us often while we were fishing or watching them come in during the evening. It was a great week of relaxation and hope to do it again next year. Thanks for giving us memories.

Location

From the Owner

Situated in an ideal spot on the lake, guests can relax with beautiful scenery, while also enjoying a large pool area, a 32-jet heated spa. There is a landscape hedge on both sides of our pool for privacy with the rear open, and no fence to spoil the view.The entire lanai is screened in, so there are no bugs! The pool faces southeast so there is a.m. and p.m. sun. For those who prefer a shady area, the covered part of the lanai will provide this, after mid-morning. The pool will be partially shaded by mid-afternoon.
