About The Owner

Denis and I were married for nearly thirty nine years before he sadly passed away. We had two children, Suzanne and Robert. We had grown up together and family life was central to us both. I had 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. 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Kissimmee Central

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, 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.

What makes this house unique

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you for lending your home to families to vacation in while in Florida. We had a great time! Your place was wonderful! Thanks again.

Perfect place for grandparents, parents and kids to connect

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained large home with a lovely screened in pool and hot tub. Kids enjoyed watching water fowl and turtles in lagoon behind the home. The owner and site manager were responsive and accommodating to our needs. I would book it again if we return to the area as a family group.

We had 6 adults (3 couples) and 3 toddlers- 4 yrs and down. We had originally planned on 8 adults and 3 toddlers and that would have worked too.

Beautifu and Clean House

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean and well stocked! It exceeded all our expectations. The owner and management were very attentive to our needs. The owner communicated with us frequently and her hospitality was unprecedented. The pool was a wonderful place to unwind after visiting the theme parks. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a property to rent in the Orlando area.
