|Southviewis a beautiful, spacious, luxury lakeside home with
private pool and spa, in a premier gated community of Lake Berkley Resort,
which is 8 miles from Disney. It is fully air-conditioned with additional ceiling fans. Time and effort has been spent giving our home the attention to detail the discerning guests expects. We are delighted to have created a quality environment for all our guests to enjoy. Regular personal visits by us, ensures that our home remains immaculate for ourselves and our guests. It is exquisitely furnished and comprehensively equipped and we are confident Southview will exceed all your expectations of what a vacational rental home can and should offer. The open-plan aspect to the downstairs living areas allows you to enjoy the light and airy environment of the southerly aspect of our home, and the professionally tinted windows keep out most of the Floridian heat without obscuring the wonderful views of the private pool and lake beyond.
We feel that privacy on the deck and in the pool, is of paramount importance, and to facilitate this we have installed privacy fencing on either side to the rear of the property, without compromising the view beyond. The LANAI; a covered seating area, with its own ceiling fan, is accessible from the kitchen/diner and allows you to sit out at all times of the day and night and enjoy the beautiful south-facing waterfront aspect. Here you can relax and unwind and soak up the atmosphere whilst eating your breakfast or perhaps sipping your evening cocktails and appreciating the idyllic surroundings, we even provide a deluxe gas barbecue grill for alfresco dining & those fun evenings in. Don't be surprised if the resident family of Ducks decides to join you!
These are some of our guests comments:
Southview is idyllic. A beautiful villa, very well equipped, with a south facing pool area looking out over a peaceful lake. Lake Berkley is a secure and well appointed community with good recreational facilities. Situated very close to the Wal-Mart and close to the Poinciana Boulevard it makes for easy access to shopping and easy travel to the parks and beyond. We had great fun and were sorry to leave! Madeleine and Denis, the owners, are great people to deal with and very supportive through booking, the stay, and afterwards. Snap up a booking in this villa if you can! Malcolm Valentine, Aberdeen, UK
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this wonderful villa. The location is perfect, just off the 192, so close to all the attractions and restaurants. The villa was extremely comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped, with lovely views over the lake. The owners couldn't have been more friendly or helpful from the very first contact. All in all highly recommended. Angela, Warrington, Cheshire
We had a fabulous time. It was an excellent respite from the heat and crowds at Disney. My four year old son says the pool and game room were his favorite parts of the whole vacation! Maddie has been extremely friendly and prompt about everything. Wigginton Family, Cedar Park, TX
We had a great time staying in Southview on our recent golf holiday in Orlando. We found the house great, with great space and every comfort. The kids (43-71 year olds) loved the games room. Each of the 5 of us had our own bedroom, with TV, all for the price of 1 room in a hotel. Why book anywhere else if SouthView is available. It would be ideal for a family holiday, as is near all the Disney parks, restaurants etc. 5 Happy Paddy's looking forward to our next trip. Aidan O Shaughnessy, Ireland
When it is your first time booking an online reservation it can be scary to trust and take the plunge. Booking with the Locks was a truly pleasant experience all around. Every single thing about the place was EXACTLY as described but when you see it for real it appears even more beautiful. The community had every convenience and many attractions enjoyable for all different age groups and interests. It is a very short distance from all of the major attractions and then there was the heated pool and hot tub to enjoy! Madeleine and Denis have thought of everything. The home was also beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. Thank God there are people like them out there making dreams come true for others. Thanks for all of your hard work and friendly chat. Margo and Dean and extended vacationing family. Margo Houston
My Family & I stayed at Madie & Denis house at Southview in July. This was the best vacation we have been on. The house is absolutely beautiful, it has everything you need to washer, drier, full kitchen with all the things you need for cooking etc, etc to make your stay enjoyable. You have a nice view of the lake right in your back yard, where you can go fishing if you like. Everything is just minutes away. Everything you see in the pictures is what you get a beautiful house but much bigger in person. I recommend this house to anybody. Oh also the beds are like sleeping on clouds!!!!! Thanks Madie & Denis we will be back soon everything was great!!! much love, Leida,Joe,& Family, Worcester, Ma

|Southview Villa lies in a QUIET SECLUDED ENCLAVE of luxurious private executive homes surrounded by wooded areas. In the front garden palm trees gently sway in the breeze. The view from the back is not obscured by trees so that the fishing lake and wildlife can be viewed clearly. Tame ducks bring their ducklings up to the pool door to be fed so remember to have plenty of bread at your disposal. Egrets, sacred ibis, cranes and much more frequent the lake during the day time so there is always plenty to see. A fine mesh screen covers the pool-deck and stops unwanted flies and mosquito's during the day and night provided the pool door is kept shut, but allows the sun to shine through. In the evening you'll enjoy the tropical sounds as you swim or relax in the illuminated pool and spa. There are four padded sun-loungers for you to relax on and eight padded chairs set around two tables to dine on and smaller tables to leave your books, drinks and sun cream. Being able to sit under the sun umbrella is also an added bonus when the day becomes too hot. The patio doors are alarmed for peace of mind so little ones will not be able to get out without you noticing. A mobility handle by the steps allows the less able and the little ones to enter and exit the pool safely.
