About Ian & Julie Brazier

As frequent English visitors to Florida we were always 'keeping an eye open' for the right property! There were lots of resorts but none as spacious and well presented as Lake Berkley. The opportunity came to settle after many years travelling as a British Army family. The house is a family home that we rent out, not a business. We spend many weeks every year in our Florida home. As well as all the attractions nearby it has been a great place to explore the rest of Florida from.

Ian & Julie Brazier purchased this villa in 2010

Why Ian & Julie Brazier chose Lake Berkley

Lake Berkley is a real surprise - such an elegant, spacious, quiet, refined, gated resort with the bonus of being so close to all the action. We benefit from spacious plots that are thoughtfully landscaped in a well maintained resort with plenty of open, attractive, recreational space. Evening walks around the wood fringed lakeside are a real treat or just sitting watching the birds roost onto the island in the middle of the lake as the sun sets...a great change of pace. The villa is fully equipped with an air conditioned games room, flat screen TVs in all bedrooms as well as the living area with plenty of DVDs, books and boardgames....if you ever have the time! You can easily self cater or call any number of delivery restaurants so you just operate the fork rather than the oven! Lake Berkley has a quiet period after 9pm which means a romantic or family chat over your late dinner with outside dining or inside your own home from home - do as you please! If the good life is loading a few extra pounds, the clubhouse gym will help; it is only a 5 minute walk away. We saw many resorts before buying at Lake Berkley and were attracted by the calm elegance and the space.

What makes this villa unique

When you open the front door you are welcomed into a home....not just a 'rental property'. You feel at home and relaxed with everything you need right down to the family coolbox! Just bring yourselves, everything else you need is already here. Relax by your own pool or be in Disney in 10 minutes, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or Universal in 25 and Seaworld in 15. Try Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon - Disney Waterparks only 12 minutes away. There are a selection of good value family restaurants within 5 minutes of the villa. For fine dining Downtown Disney offers both themed dining and elegant options. A great hit for children of all ages are the dinner shows; Medieaval Times is 2 minutes from Lake Berkley

Being so central means that the Gulf Coast, Tampa and the famous Busch Gardens are all easy day trips, or shorten the drive and leave a little later in the morning for Legoland (35 miles). A trip east to the space coast and Cape Canaveral is a must and only an hour away. Cocoa Beach is also within easy reach (69 miles). For a longer day or maybe an overnight trip, go to historic St Augustine on the east coast, first settled by the Spanish in the 16th Century and still sporting some of the original fortifications. Clearwater Beach is 96 miles. The Keys are also within striking distance for a night or two away. Back in Kissimmee try the airboat rides, the Warbird Air Museum, Gatorland or are you a serious shopper? If so, day-long Mall browsing is available for several days in different venues! (Florida Mall-15 miles, Orlando Prime Outlets-9 miles) There is much more too but you may need a little time for yourself or book an extra week when you return next year!

First time in Florida - couldn’t be better!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Florida, so we weren’t sure whether we’d done the right thing renting a villa. However,. we must have amazing beginners’ luck as we seem to have found the perfect place! The location is superb - we were only a short drive away from the Disney Parks (which we found to be important after a tiring day!) and the villa has everything you need to help you enjoy your holiday. We hope to be back again!

10 days of bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days in this gorgeous villa and had a brilliant time. The villa is beautiful, room decor is very tasteful, the pool is lovely, and the whole place is comfortable and welcoming. It was great to have laundry facilities, coffee machine etc- a home from home. The villa is on a select gated development with own lake and wildlife. It is very well situated for touring - we visited the Kennedy Space Centre amongst other attractions.

2013 Post Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic 17 days in this lovely villa which was a real home from home and beautifully maintained. Fully equipped with everything you could need and more; including a fabulous swimming pool and very well presented games room. The management company response to the one issue we had was quick and efficient and the owners are both friendly and helpful. The package is fantastic - accommodation great, location great, local amenities great; restaurants and Walmart 5 minutes away and a super size Walmart less than 10 minutes away. Disney Parks are within a 15-20 minute drive and Universal not a lot further. The villa is within a secure gated complex set around Lake Berkley and has a nice mixture of holiday homes and residential homes all extremely well maintained and beautifully set out - we will definitely be returning and would not hesitate in recommending this villa to friends and family.

Brilliant location!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic holiday made even better by coming back to the comfort of this villa each evening. The villa is spacious, well-cared-for and clean (particularly like the Hollwood pictures!) and most importantly had everything I needed, including wi-fi. Having a private pool was a real luxury. We also enjoyed family table tennis tournaments in the garage. The villa is well situated, close to Disney, Universal and shopping malls with a Walmart in walking distance if it is not too hot! We were also able to drive to St Augustine, St Petersburg and Tampa...... all there and back in a day. Would love to return to the villa and would definitely reccomend to anyone!!

Lake Berkley is a perfect location for Disney World - only 10 minutes drive away. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal Studios are only 15 miles (25 minutes drive). Shopping malls, restaurants and themed dining galore and all the buzz of Kissimmee are only moments away. Downtown Disney (12 miles) and Universal City Walk (16 miles) bring a huge variety of sophisticated nightlife including Cirque du Soleil, Planet Hollywood, comedy clubs, disco's and every kind of dining and cuisine.

Dinner shows such as Medieval Times just around the corner are always a hit and fascinate audiences of all ages! After all this the quiet elegance of Lake Berkley provides a much needed tranquillity. Spacious and elegant - a truly relaxing haven after those hectic days and nights. Ideal for a family holiday or a romantic break, golfing party or college reunion.
