We had a wonderful time and I have already recommended to friends. It was quiet hot at night and I wish we could have adjusted the temp. Just a bit instead of having it under lock. Other than that our stay was wonderful, and we look forward to staying there again in the future. We thought the price was great for that many rooms for an entire week, it was much cheaper than renting hotel rooms for 16 people. The children loved the pool table and the pool. Us women loved the sidewalks in the resort where we could go on long walks. The men loved the fishing in the lake, but only got to go one day because the rest of the time we were at the parks, which was very close to us, which was great!
Owner reply:

hi Karen I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay and just for future reference if you find the AC needs adjusting call Bridget or Mark

Hello and good morning I want to first thank you very much for helping me get everything done on renting your beautiful home, we had a wonderful time and your home oh my it was gorgeous I don’t know any other way to describe it. The bed oh my gosh me and my husband stayed in the bedroom downstairs and if I could have taken it home with me I would have along with the bathroom. Everyone was excited and loved the home as well I hope we did everything we were suppose to we tried to make sure everything was taken care of before leaving except for the towels left that morning from showers and baths. The neighborhood was so relaxing and my husband and son loved the fishing area and had a good time there my son caught a big snapping turtle that we happily returned to the water lol.

Hello all I can say is Excellent, the house was wonderful, and the decorating I loved it. I dont know where you got those beds but we just melted in them they were so soft I loved everything about the house. The neighborhood was so nice and well kept and peaceful, I mean you knew people were there but it was a pleasant atmosphere. Everything was right in the area of where we were and if not, it wasnt that far away. My husband and my son enjoyed the fishing they had a wonderful time, my son caught a big snapping turtle that had to go back but all in all they caught a lot of fish and had a wonderful time, the pool was great we were looking for the bicycles that we saw on the website for adults but didnt see those but that was okay cause we went for nice walks when the sun went down and I love the palm trees they are so beautiful. I hope we left everything to your satisfaction I checked everything over and over and over didnt want to leave anything undone couldnt take some things back we had purchased to eat so I hope someone can use them. Thank you for all of your assistance and for getting back with me so quickly when I had a question you helped me out a lot. We didnt make it to the Parks but we still had a wonderful time.

The villa is well appointed and furnished to our satisfaction. Plates, glasses, cutlery, etc and kitchen utensils provided are more than adequate for our use. However, air conditioning system in the villa did not perform well enough since we experienced periods of cold discomfort during rainy and cloudy days, although the caretaker did his utmost to rectify the situation.

Had a fabulous time in your home which was lovely. We called the pool man to turn the pool heat down slightly as it was like a hot bath but to have it on for a little longer into the evening service was great he called round within 15 minutes of our call and reset everything for us. He also told us the best routs to take for Disney which turned out to be closer than we had expected. When we plan to return to Florida we will definatly contact you.

I am sorry to report that the first day we spend scrubbing and cleaning. The kitchen cupboards were full of crumbs, several frying pans had food residue, as shown to the care taker, and the outside lanai furniture was filthy as well and took my husband to scrub for several hours as I cleaned the interior. The highchair was full of old food as well. The above statement is the only reason I would not recommend this property to my friends. I dare say that we left the house in excellent shape, as we leave all the properties that we rent. The value was good, for the amount of people we had there and indeed Disney was easily accesible, however I would suggest that the cleaning crew would be checked upon before guests arrive.

We had a wonderful stay at 1021 Lake Berkely Dr. Everything was clean and neat. We felt very welcomed when we walked in and saw the dining room table all set! The layout was perfect for our large family gathering. There were plenty of dishes, towels, blankets, sheets, pillows, etc. It was great having all the videos (although we didn't watch any!) and all the games (which we did play with). My only criticism is that the pool was not warm enough. Since we were there from Dec. 27-31, the weather was quite cool, although sunny. It would have been nicer if the pool could have been warmer and if the hot tub worked properly. Also, in the future, it might be helpful if you supply things like dishwasher detergent, dish soap, a sponge or 2, and garbage bags. One other minor thing -- we couldn't get the crib out of the downstairs master bedroom! So my little nephew ended up sleeping on the crib mattress in the twin-bedded room upstairs. This was not really a problem except that when he rolled off the mattress and found he was not confined to a crib, he got up to tell his parents all about it! One day that was at 4:30 a.m.! Anyway, we enjoyed your villa very much and would definitely recommend it to friends!

We had an execellent vacation. The villa did exceed our expectation. It is well mantained. This is the first time I rented a villa, I always used to stay in a timeshare resort due to that I work in one. However, this time we planned a family gathering and decided to stay all together and it was a big success. It gives you a feeling of being home away from home. We took my live-in maid (nanny) along, so the ladies had a vacation too when it came to cooking cleaning etc. We all had a great time and ejoyed the warm pool early in the mornig and late in the evening after visiting the parks. Especialy the kids had a blast. One recommendatin for the Villas is to provide T.V. in all rooms;however, the kids were so entertained that they hardly had the time to watch t.v. Also to have one telephone upstairs in the master room. I normally visit Orlando every other year and would definetly return back to this villa and would also highly recommend it to all my friends. To the owner Elizabeth, who was very attentive, Thank you very much to rent us your beautifull villa.

Elizabeth We wanted to thank you for renting us your home. Our vacation was aHuge success, and evryone had a ball, The villa far excedded our expectations and really was a home and much better value than staying in hotel. Big advantage was our own private pool & Spa especially after a hard day in the theme parks and the villa was so close to Disney we left the park in the afternoon had lunch and a swim then went back just in time for the parade at 3pm with the kids totally refreshed. We will certainly recommend your home to all our friends and family and will book with you again when we return to Florida.

Our family filled this house to capacity and we were all very comfortable. The amenities in the house anticipated our every need. Our only disappointment was the pool and hot tub required more advanced notice to be heated in the exceptionally cold weather. Therefore, we were not able to use it as wed hoped. Overall, it was a wonderful home base for our familys needs.
Verified
Our family loved the property! We rented another home for additional family and they all complained about how spacious our house was compared to theirs. The kids really enjoyed the pool, and our 2 year old loved the toys in the game room. I loved that there was no TV in the sitting room, which allow for people to actually talk without having to yell over the TV. The management team was awesome and responded rapidly to any concerns that we had. If we are in the area again, we will definitely keep this villa in mind. Thanks again for sharing your home with us!

fantastic home we all enjoyed our stay, it was by far the best home we have ever rented and would have no hesitation in recommending to everyone we know.

It was a beautiful house and the description was accurate, we had a great time. Happy with everything. Really appreciate the decorations and the gifts left for the children by the homeowners, very nice thoughtful touch. Unfortunately we paid for the pool to be heated and couldnt use it, but that was mother natures fault.......

The house is keep in good condition and all the furnishings are really nice. The only down fall to the house was the pool and twin rooms didnt have cable. The pool wasnt as clean as we would have liked it to be. Other than those things it was a pretty nice home.

The Villa was roomy, clean and comfortable, bueatifully furnished the pool was lovely and well situated for the parks, a great time had by all, will definately recommend to a friend. Hope to return! (Only fault on last couple of days of our stayThe toilets downstairs blocked had only a small amount of toilet paper used,and dirty water then appeared in the bath coming from the drain we did report it at the time to the manager)

The owner is a very friendly person, the house is very clean, everything you need is avaiable for a nice stay, and we are sure that we will come back soon.

I brought a 21ft bass boat (my husband was fishing a national tournament that was televised on ESPN), and had some inital problems with parking. I was told that the boat was not permitted and I would have to park it at an unsecure location. The boat needed power each evening and had approximately $80,000 worth of equipment on it - it needed to be secure. So we bucked the system and parked in the driveway each evening until 5am - no one complained. The parking is a problem if you have more than two vehicles. The upstairs of the home was extremely hot, the thermostat was set on 78 degrees with outside temperatures exceeding 90 degrees. I phoned the on-site management, Bridget and she was very reluctant to change the thermostat. She indicated that she could only move it a degree or two and would need special permission for that. The upstairs was not comfortable for sleeping the first evening. The thermostat was changed to 75 degrees, however the masterbedroom upstairs was never comfortable. I paid for the swimming pool to be heated and was not turned on until the third day of my stay. The electrical outlets in the bathrooms did not work, so I was unable to use the hair dryer. I missed a scheduled dinner with my husband because I could not dry or style my hair in time. I phoned Bridget and she sent someone over to check out the problem, but it was never addressed during our stay. The ice machine on the refrigerator did not work and the man checking the electrical outlets took a look at it. Turns out the water was turned off. The next day we had plenty of ice and plenty of water that drained on the floor. Again, we phone Bridget and notified her that the refrigerator was draining water on the floor (a continuous flow) she said she would send someone. No one ever showed up and we turned the water off ourselves. We had a package mailed to the address, however no one could help up to retrieve it. We never found out what happened to the package. It was mailed USPS. Overall our experience was great and I would highly recommed the home to anyone.

We had such a wonderful time in your home. We had a little family reunion with relatives from all over the USA. Your house was perfect and very confortable & very clean. Any problems/issues we may have had where taken care of in lightning time. Your house care taker was wonderful. My grandchildren loved the master bath. They wanted to take a bath all the time. I would definitely recommend this house to my family & friends. The only main down part was that the hot tub wasn't hot. I understand that we'd need to pay to have the pool heated. But I don't understand, if you advertise a hot tub, that the heating isn't included in the price for the house.

This home was outstanding. We have traveled to Florida eight of the last ten years to watch our daughters play college softball. This home was by far the best experience that we have had. We broght the entire family down (10 people) and everyone was more than satisfied. The entire Lake Berkley complex is outstanding from it's secure gated system to access to it's many features. Everything met or exceeded our expectations and ojnly wish we could have stayed for a whole month instead of just seven days. I would highly recommend this home to everyone I know. The savings between putting up ten people individually opposed to as a group was quite a savings too!

The refridgerator was broken, and we lost a good deal of food due to this, also the pool was cold until Monday when the refridgerator repair man came out and fixed it.
Owner reply:

On seeing this message I immediatly contacted my Management company who informed me that the fridge was and is working fine, but that it had been overfilled with food and drink and was perhaps because of this taking longer to chill. The pool temperture was checked for you and it was running at 87 degrees which is normal for this time of year, you stated it was not warm enough in the evenings , Mark reset the heating timer to 10.30pm told you if you had any further issues with it to call, when he heard nothing further he assumed the new settings were good for you.

I would like to see more properties.

Hello I just wanted to let you know I had a great time and you home is lovely, relaxing having a beer by the pool after a cooling swim to recover from a day at one of the Theme Parks, We also enjoyed having a game of pool in the games room. The only complaint was our holiday was not long enough and we decided that next time we will try and come for 3 weeks

Elizabeth We wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed our holiday in your villa. We arrived after a long flight and found the villa very easily as your directions were excellant, on opening the front WOW we were very impressed and must say your pictures do not show the villa to its full advantage, the space was awsome and the pool area just fabulous. Lake Berkley itself was a great location and the bar onsite very good we met some very nice people there and had a few good nights there. All together a wonderful holiday, which we hope to repeat. We have told all our friends and family if they are thinking of a trip to Orlando they they should book your home Thankyou Emily

Visited in September 2006. > > Firstly the resort is a gated community on the Highway 192, just sited behind "Medieval Times" Dinner Show and the 24 hour supermarket "Walmart". Local to all the attractions. Magic Kingdom and all the Disney parks; a 15 min drive away and Universal Studios/ Sea World and International Drive about 20 mins up one straight road. The resort is a collection of Lovely Villas and Newly built townhouses, built around a large lake. There is a Gazeebo which hosts private weddings, a park, tennis courts, two swimming pools and a poolside bar. Also a club house with internet connections, video games and pool tables. > > The Villa itself is out of this world, like a showhouse, I cannot stress how beautiful it is. There are two large living areas and a large kitchen with everything needed, all open plan with a lovely light and airy feel. The house is fully air-conditioned and has two double patio doors leading out into the pool area. The garage has bee made into a games room with everything needed for the kids and adults alike, Pool table, bikes, strollers, Playstation 2 and poker table, the house has wireless internet connection for laptops which was very handy. Also a utility room with washer and dryer. > > There is a communal bathroom downstairs and also one of the two Master Suites with a large en-suite bathroom and walk in closet, all tastefully decorated. Up stairs are the further six bedrooms and three further bathrooms, all spacious with closets and and unisex colours. Spotlessly clean with hairdryers installed. > > The pool area is massive, with adequate seating and sun loungers for all the guests. Oversized area around the pool makes all the difference and there is also a barbeque for those warm nights. The pool area gets the sun light all day and evening until it sets. The night time is lovely, no noise from anywhere. > > Our time spent in the "GlistenFloridaVilla.com" was like a taste of paradise where there is room for everyone and room for peace and quiet, we would highly recommend a stay there and after visiting villas in Florida over 20 times, we can say this is the best ever.... Book it! >

simply wonderful home,location and very close to golf as you stated. I was a bit apprehensive with renting a home but it was all so easy and lots better than a hotel certainly the best way to visit florida. I am hoping to be back next year for a Golfing break (hopefully 10 night) and will be rebooking with you
Hello LizJust a short note to say how much we all enjoyed your home, it was beautiful. Your instructions from the airport to the villa were excellant. We would certainly recommend your home to our friends and family and if we return to Florida we will rent it again.The Stuart Family Dundee
HiWhat a great experience your villa was. this was our third trip to florida but the first time we had stayed in a villa what a difference it made to our holiday. It really was a home away from home fabulous location with plenty to keep everone happy. My son-inlaw even caught a fish in the lake. We did not want to leave but we will be back and thank you once again for the voucher that allows us discount for rebooking this is great.Angela & Nelson Morrison & Familyangelaactionman@aol.com
Dear ElizabethWe all had a fabulous time in your home. It was great to relax by the pool after a hard day at the parks and watch the sun go down while having aglass of wine. The kids loved the pool and we could only get them out when we were going to parks and our youngest used the spa as her own private paddle pool. We will be recommending your home to all our freinds and family and will certainly book with you for our next trip to florida.The McGovern FamilyGarrowhillUk
