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 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, 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.

Absolutely the best experience ever!!!! Very clean, organized, and beautiful just the way I like it!

  • 5 of 5

I have never rented a home before. And I had to be very careful because we have 5 children and after looking for months for a safe area, I felt so comfortable renting from Madeline! She makes a person feel absolutely comfortable! Well worth every penny spent! My children were so happy and that’s what basically makes me most happiest!! I noticed that Madeline’s house did not have an air hockey table and I told her that it would be nice if she had one in her home. Guess what she did???????? She made sure there was this big beautiful air hockey table in the game room before we arrived!!!!! Any question I had she would respond so quickly! She even talked with me over the phone!! The comfort level was a 15 out of 10!!!!!

Don’t even get me started with all the things we did just staying on the gated community! They had a little play area, beautiful scenery, a lake with beautiful white sand, a splash pad, and more!!! We all loved talking walks in the neighborhood alone!

After talking to Madeline and emailing back and forth there was no doubt in my mind that was the house for us. Lovely home, lovely person!! My children are already talking about the next time we rent Madeline’s home!!

Who needs the parks when you have a home like this!!!😊😊😊

Unfortunately, we had to cut our vacation short due to a death in the family, however we loved the time we did get to spend here! The home was beautiful as well as the view of the lake. Great location close to Disney World! Would definitely love to come back and would highly recommend!

Great location in a spacious home

  • 4 of 5

Overall great experience from rental to property management. My guess is the house is being updated room by room because some areas are newer than others. The location is great, kind of off the beaten path yet close enough to key areas of interest: Disney, Medeival Times, etc.
