It’s all about. ‘The View’

The uninterrupted view of the 14 acre lake and bird island, takes unwinding by the pool to a new level!
Relax on a sun bed, or perhaps get wrinkly in the spa whilst you enjoy the wonderful view of the lake and island.
Our fully screened deck is further enhanced by hedging, affording the more body conscious guest that all important privacy.
Together with the sun beds, there are chairs, tables and footstools.
Outside the pool screen is a Gas BBQ.

The covered lanai with ceiling fan gives shade and a breath of air when that legendary sunshine is just too much or for enjoying a quiet drink in the evening.
Sitting under the lanai during a storm is spectacular!

The inside our home is fully air conditioned and has ceiling fans in all rooms.
A large great room, a fully fitted and equipped kitchen and two dining areas are complimented by the separate games room giving plenty of options for even the largest party to find some personal space.

There are 2 master bedrooms, both with king beds, en-suite facilities and enviable views across the natural spring fed lake.
The ground floor king master has a full en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle, twin sinks and walk-in closet. There are patio doors out onto the deck area.
The first floor king master has an en-suite shower room with over sized walk-in shower, sink and W.C. This shower room is also accessible from the landing if required.
The Safari room has a full bed and a twin.
Our Disney themed bedroom has 2 twin beds.
The safari and Disney rooms share a large shower room.
Bedroom 5 is on the ground floor and has a queen bed. There is a shower room across the hall.

Unique Benefits

We cant stress enough the beauty of the lake! The island at the center is home to a wealth of birds and even the occasional Alligator (never feed a Gator!)
It is wonderful to listen to the battle of the feathers when the birds argue over who has which branch for the night!

Take a walk around the main lake, stand on the fishing pier and watch the turtles - some as big as garbage can lids! or maybe try to catch a few fish.
Visit the kids play area or test your stamina with a game of beach volley ball.

Next to the third lake is a tennis court (racquets and balls are provided in our home) and a basketball hoop.

Why Kids Love It

The kids love their own pool no matter what the weather is doing!
For the serious swimmer who maybe wants to keep up their fitness levels, there is a large pool attached to the clubhouse. It is heated Oct - Mar.
There is also a kiddies splash area with water canons!

Area Information

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Based in the north of England, we have been regular visitors to the Kissimmee area since 1995. We always rented a home for our trips and when we decided to buy , we had a very specific 'must have and must not have' list!
Lake Berkley ticked every box and then some!
Our first property was bought in 2004 and Winter Haven became our second purchase in 2006

Why this property? The View!
When we bought our first property there was absolutely nothing for sale where the pool deck had a view of the main lake.
So when 'Winter Haven' came up for sale, we knew it was for us!
And it has a lanai!( A covered outside area )
There is something magical about sitting outside in the rain - keeping perfectly dry - and watching Mother Nature ! But we do go inside when the lightning gets close!

Guestbook comments from the host:

Everything was wonderful … we had a great time. Your home had everything we could have needed! The view was relaxing and we even caught some fish. We did not encounter any problems in the home whatsoever. Thank you for renting to us and we look forward to renting again in the future!


Apr 2022

It was a pleasure to stay in your wonderful villa. It had everything we needed and was beautifully cleaned. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and would have no problem recommending it to friends.


Feb 2022

We had an absolute lovely stay at your beautiful home! When we can, Amy and I would love to come stay there again. (We got married right before we came down!.) The gentleman who said he was the property manager caught us at the house one morning. He was super friendly.
We love how the swimming pool was one large screened in area. This gave us inspiration for our own home when we go to build our pool.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at Winter Haven! It was definitely a home away from home which we look forward to going to again.

What a view

In July 2023 we stayed at Winter Haven a fantastic villa in Lake Berkley which had enough room for 8 of us comfortably. The guys partially liked the games room/pool room, and we all loved to pool and jacuzzi, but the star attraction was the lake view of the island where several large birds species came to rested after sunset each evening. Watching the birds as the sun set with a cool drink was the perfect end to a busy day. The home had everything you could possibly want and was so well appointed , the pictures, ornaments, furnishings etc all made this feel like a home. I would recommend this place and would gladly book there again and the price was very reasonable when you see what your getting. Mike the owner was so good to deal with which added to making this a great holiday experence.

Thank you Stanley for your awesome review! We are delighted to read that Winter Haven more than met the requirements of your party - sounds like fun was had by all. We agree the view is very special and those birds on the island are wonderful to watch. Look forward to hearing from you when you need your next Florida fix!

Amazing visit, we will be back

We loved everything about this house. Our kids had a great time fishing in the pond and hours swimming in the pool. The house was clean and spacious. Had everything we needed to make meals at the house. The house is also centrally located for all our areas and parks we visited. We will definitely be back!!!
