                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: About Ourselves: We are Madeleine and Denis. We’ve been married for thirty-eight years and have two children, Suzanne and Robert. We have grown up together and family life is so central to us both. I have been fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom and made it my mission to provide a loving home environment for us all; this is something which I am immensely proud of. I have now turned my attention to our home in Florida which we have owned for almost five years. Families play an important role in our lives and we hope this devotion has transcended into our stunning home in Florida. We are fortunate to call previous guests, friends, and for us this is what owning a home is all about. Communication is the key…it is not a blind transaction, we are here to make sure your stay is as pleasurable as possible. Trust is also a key feature.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Berkley:
                      Florida and families go hand-in-hand. There is no better place for us than the peaceful oasis of the upmarket gated community of Lake Berkley Resort. As soon as we visited the area we knew it was the place for us. It has so much to offer…tennis, basketball, volley ball, cyber café and much, much more. It is a wonderful place to take time-out to be with your children and family members. Our resort is so tranquil; a haven for wildlife and our newest addition is our fabulous community pool and splash area for adults and children alike! It is so central to all of Orlando’s attractions dining, shopping and much, much more.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our home is sumptuously decorated, we believe we have created a real quality family environment, a home from home, a place where you can come together but still have areas to go off to if you so wish. An unusual feature of our home is our professionally installed stunning internal air-conditioned games room which we have lovingly decorated. Time and effort has been spent giving our home the attention to detail our guests expect. We are delighted to have created a quality environment for all to enjoy. Regular personal visits by us, ensures that our home remains immaculate for ourselves and our visitors. We are confident it will exceed all your expectations of what a vacational rental home can and should offer.
