About Sue and Dave Fox

We love the Florida lifestyle. We visit our Florida home twice a year and replace or upgrade something every time for continuous improvement.

Sue and Dave Fox purchased this villa in 2008

Why Sue and Dave Fox chose Kissimmee Central

We looked at many homes. This one stood out due to the bright airy look and feel. As you walk in the front door, your eyes are drawn straight to the pool deck and lake.

Lake Berkley is a beautiful peaceful resort kept immaculately by our valued team of landscapers.

What makes this villa unique

We love spending time under the lanai on the spacious pool deck relaxing and watching the ever changing wildlife.

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this property. It is exactly as described in the writeup. Dave responded immediately to my rental request and to any other emails I sent him before and after the trip. My deposit was returned the day after we got back from vacation. The manager visited us on the first day to see how things were going. He was attentive and quick to respond when we contacted him. We were two families vacationing together. The kids used the game tables in the garage daily and everyone had their own space to wind down and sleep. We did visit some of the parks while we were there. The villa is conveniently located to all of the parks. The commute to Universal was around 20-25 minutes. Magic Kingdom around 15. It was so hot while we were there that we decided to return mid afternoon for a swim and dinner and then go back to the park later in the evening for the fireworks. In addition, we visited friends in New Smyrna, which was about an hour and twenty minutes away. This villa is a great base for your Orlando vacation. It is very nice to get away from the crowds and sit by the pool after a day at the park. I will definitely recommend this villa to friends heading down to Orlando! Thank you Dave and Sue!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your 5 star review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home so much, and that you made such good use of the 3 catch and release fishing lakes. Some of those fish are a good size...some even beyond the capability of the Ospreys who try to catch them. ;-) Best wishes, Sue and Dave

Not as described/expected........

  • 3 of 5

I will start by saying, Dave accommodated us, after our other home cancelled our dates. With that said, he has emailed us back within hours, and his support via this entire stay was nothing short of stellar. When you read the below, keep in mind it is a nice home, but it needs work, and needs to be professionally cleaned, top to bottom. When you walk in the first thing that you see is a rug at the door that should have been thrown away long ago, bathroom rugs were the same. The carpet on the stairs is littered with cigarette burns, and is filthy. Walls were in need of painting, and had marks all over the place. AC return filter was nasty, and ac grill in kitchen and master bedroom was fifthly like in a casino with black streaks on the ceiling. The carpet in the master bedroom was FILTHY, at the baseboard it was nothing short of horrifically nasty ( you could tell this carpet was never cleaned after they bought this home). Towels in each bathroom were old worn and torn. The furniture in the entire house, looks like something out of a garage sale. Mattress's are the cheapest hardest bricks I have ever slept on. Tables had scratches and stains, as did chairs. Toilets do not flush when you flip the lever, you have to hold them down for half a minute to make the toilets flush. Not one ceiling fan in the place, little fans in closets were the only thing that made it cool in the house, ac unit struggles to keep up on second floor, and the note on the thermostat ask you to keep it set at 75 degrees (unit struggled in APRIL). On the patio the screen room had several holes in it, the cushions on the chairs were molded under them from not being cleaned. The pools concrete is flaked off and at the bottom of the pool, and the drain cap was not screwed down. The garage/game room had an extra washer that needed to be hauled away, the pool table had duct tape holding the pockets together and the felt looked like a twenty year old ash tray with burns everywhere. This house was obviously a repo, and the minimum amount of work and money was spent to get it on the rental scene. I have rented many homes in Orlando for our trips to Disney, this is like number 8, so we know the drill. This was the dirtiest home we have ever stayed in .This house needs work/carpet and to be professionally cleaned, new carpet, and upgrades in general. We expected more. The Newmans.

Owner's Response: We strongly dispute this malicious unfair review and rebut your "garage sale" and "repo" comments. We visit twice a year spending time and money upgrading. Our last visit was December 2015 when we replaced 4 TVs and 2 TV units, upgrading the lounge to a LG 55" 4k. Everything we buy is new from well known stores. During your stay you emailed twice as you changed your mind about pool heat (we accommodated your wishes) and you made no negative comments. When our property manager made his standard courtesy call you were enjoying the pool and were happy. You did not point out the detached pool outlet cover or ripped screens. He did find these after your departure however and they were repaired. Most people comment on the amazing view of the pool deck and lake when they open the front door, not the doormat (which has been replaced several times and would have been again in December if necessary). We did replace some bath mats and towels however!​ ​Our carpets are regularly professionally cleaned and we clean the base boards ourselves. Black streaks around the AC vent (not there in December) are because AC was switched to heat. These will be cleaned. Our mattresses are firm not hard. They are not the cheapest available and we check them all every visit. Our toilets flush longer when held briefly - not 30 seconds!​​ Our pool table gets heavy usage by children. It does not have cigarette burns​ and still plays well. It will be replaced eventually. We upgraded our working washing machine to a top of the range model​. Parts can take a while to be sourced so we kept the original to ensure no ​guest ​disruption​. Our pool furniture is top of the range (Palm Casual) and fairly new. The pool deck, pool and hot tub are cleaned weekly. Many rental homes have locked AC controls​ but​ ​w​e trust our guests to set the temperature sensibly. For comfort and guidance, we recommend the temperature range we use ourselves.​ We don't know why you expected ceiling fans. These can be a safety issue, so we provide ordinary fans, which as you say, work.​ All west facing windows are tinted for comfort and privacy, and ​to​ help keep the home cool. ​AC question​s can be resolved by talking to our manager or u​s​. ​Our home description and photos are accurate and up to date. Our home is no smoking - there are no cigarette burns. The house is not a repo nor is any furniture from a garage sale. We have many happy guests who give us excellent reviews, recommend us and return.

Wonderful Florida stay

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable property in a nice secure location.

There were 6 of us (3 couples) and we enjoyed the convenience of the location. It was close to shopping, restaurants, theme parks and main roads that made it easier to get around.

The local management were very helpful and pleasant to deal with.

As we are all over 50, we especially enjoyed the hot tub after a day of exploring.

I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Dave & Sue for a wonderful stay.

Excellent Family Friendly Home

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to all of the parks. Our family of 10 stayed at the Lake Berkley property and we could not have asked for a better location. The house was spacious and clean, each family member had their own space. Unlike a hotel room we were able to spread out, cook family meals and just unwind at the end of some very long days. We had requested the pool be heated but the weather turned very cold and rainy. When I asked the owner if we could get a refund because we were unable to use the pool due to the weather he readily agreed. The whole vacation was perfect and the Lake Berkley home really contributed to our ability to enjoy ourselves. The owners are responsive and very helpful. I give this property the highest ratings and recommendations.
