About Robert Chidley
Hi, I am not sure how much of this will be helpful to you to help you decide upon your choice of holiday accommodation but I like to know who I am dealing with so hope this does help! I have been going to the US and Florida in particular for over 25 years, having owned villas for 19 years and the Kissimmee and Englewood ones now for between 7 and 15 years after I become fed up with going to hotels and villas which frankly were disappointing with poor locations, cheap/sparse furniture/fittings & inconsistent standards. I was a senior police officer in the UK, retiring as a full time officer in 2014 and will probably do some consultancy from then as well as spend more time in Florida if my two children who are still at school allow me to as they get very jealous if they can't go too!
Robert Chidley purchased this Villa in 2003

Beautiful villa! Excellent location!
This villa was perfect for our family vacation! It's tucked away nicely in a quiet gated community with all of the essential shopping stores within a couple minute drive and all the major parks within 20 minutes. The house itself is beautiful and very well maintained with plenty of space. The most comforting thing about planning this trip was the excellent communication with the owner. We will definitely be staying here again!
Fantastic spacious home!
Robert was an extremely gracious and accomodating host. He was always quick to reply to any questions and went above and beyond to make our stay great.
The house was in a great location and convenient to all the parks. We especially loved the private pool and gated community. The house was well appointed and had all the conveniences of home. It was helpful to be so close to Walmart and restaurants after a long day at the parks. The house was large and open with plenty of space for everyone in our group. We had 5 children and 4 adults and had enough room to hang out without being on top of each other.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our lovely Lake Berkley home. I am so pleased that we managed to 'add that extra magic' to your stay - as we aim to do as posh villas. We look forward to welcoming you and friends back ! Robert
Great Family Getaway
Our family was looking for a quick getaway and I used VRBO to search for a rental home. We were looking specifically for a home with a pool and at least two master because my sister and her family joined us for one night. We found this home which was a great price and had a nice pool and home layout. The house was clean and was larger then expected. The location is Kissimmee was close to many restaurants and stores and very close to Old Town. It is a gated community which we felt was safer. The kids really enjoyed the swimming pool and kept us busy for hours. Communication with the owner was very good. Although our stay was brief we would visit again and would recommend the home to other families.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of our lovely Villa. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us and that we did 'add that extra magic ' as we aim to do. We would love to welcome you back in the future. Robert
Hope to Do it All Over Again!!
Thank you, thank you for allowing us to use your home during our stay in Orlando!! This is the very first time we've ever rented a home from someone we didn't know personally before!! I can't thank you enough for being so kind and accommodating. I would highly recommend everyone staying there!
The high-lights were:
1.) Working with you personally instead of a large company.
2.) The proximity to the Disney Parks and convenience to local shops and restaurant, yet far enough away from traffic and noise.
3.) The neighborhood was gated, guarded, safe and beautiful!
4.) Your home was so very spacious with plenty of room for everyone to spread out, plus stocked with everything we needed and MORE! Way more than we needed!
5.) Your manager, Alan was very, very nice and responded right away when we called with a minor issue.
We hope to stay there again on our next trip to Disney, for we couldn't imagine another place being any nicer than yours!!
Thank you for sharing your views for others' benefit. I am so pleased that your venture into staying at our personally owned villa was such a success and that we managed to 'add that little extra magic' to your stay as we aim to do !
We look forward to hosting a future visit .............Robert
