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.
The oversized garage has been fully converted into a large air conditioned games room with a pool table, TV and seating. We also provide a selection of DVD's. PS2 with games, books, board games and toys.

We provide all linens, bath towels and pool towels.
There are hairdryers provided In each bathroom.
Christmas decorations are available free of charge.
Fishing is allowed in the lake (on a catch and return basis) and we provide a selection of rods/poles for guest use.
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.

Lake Berkley is situated off US192 near Medieval Times dinner show.

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!
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.
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.

Delighted to know you enjoyed your stay in our home, thank you for your very positive review! A villa can only be as good as the person taking care of it on a day to day basis, and our property manager does a wonderful job. Glad the pool area and that wonderful serene view has another fan! We look forward to welcoming you back!
