Winter Haven plays a very important part in our lives and we stay in our home personally at least 3 times a year to ensure everything remains in tip top shape. We employ a local property manager who prides himself on being very 'hands on' and responds quickly should our guests have questions or need help in any way. So whether guests need a dentist (too many doughnuts), a chiropractor (too many white knuckle rides) or changing a light bulb he is just at the end of a phone!

"Yes us again! Yet another fantastic holiday in Winter Haven - it feels like our second home! Loved the new Kitchen!
We had extended family with us this trip, plus two small children and the villa had plenty of space for us all to find some quiet time. The pool area was well used by us all and we especially enjoyed eating outside under the lanai. The lanai was also great for our 3 month old son who snoozed happily in one of the travel cots provided whilst his older brother had a swim.
The owners of this home have thought of practically everything - the Lego was much appreciated!
Roll on next year!"
Walton family June 19
"Our first USA adventure as a family.
A wonderful family holiday and your villa was PERFECT.
We were able to achieve the balance we were looking for - active days mixed with relaxation.
The pool, spa and view were just perfect. We arrived late but the house looked so welcoming - cool, airy, clean and well kept. It was only when we woke early next morning could we appreciate the wonderful view of the lake and birds on the island. We've stared at that view from early morning until late at night - it's mesmerizing & very relaxing.
We were truly very comfortable and our boys enjoyed their space and especially the pool table.
They also really appreciated the selection of DVD's and having the ability to watch them in their respective bedrooms.
We are so glad we found your villa!"
Wilson family July 2018
"What a villa!
Had everything & more that we could wish for.
Healey family Christmas 2017
"3rd visit to Winter Haven - need I say more!
We love this house. Home from home but in the sun!
Love the new kitchen cupboards and looking forward to seeing the new surfaces next trip!"
Clarke family Dec 2017
"We have stayed on Lake Berkley several times over the last 16 years. Winter Haven is a beautiful villa with a fantastic location on the lake. Your management team were extremely efficient when we called and very friendly and polite. We shall most certainly recommend your property to friends and family and we shall hopefully have many more fabulous holidays at your property.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday"
McNight family Aug 2017
"3rd visit and cant wait to comeback again."
Paula & family
"Lost count of the number of visits we have made to ‘Winter Haven’ over the last 7 or so years! It is such a wonderful home on what must be the best kept resort in the area. This house has everything (and more!) that you could possibly need. We see the same names cropping up in the visitors book year after year, which proves the owners care about their guests comfort, otherwise we would all go elsewhere!
This trip, we had our 6 month old son with us, and were blown away by the amount of equipment provided for a baby or young child – there was even a microwave steriliser provided. Needless to say, we are booked in again for 2018!"
"First time booking a rental home on-line. The owners are so easy to deal with. The booking process was very professional - the info pack we received prior to our trip was very comprehensive with details of supermarkets, restaurants and shopping locations and information relating to the villa and surrounding area.
The standard of the villa is superb – it is very obvious this is a very well loved, equipped and cared for home. It was spotless. The local property manager came within an hour when we had a bleeping smoke alarm.
Our kids loved the games room and made good use of their ‘very own’ swimming pool - they even managed a swim before and after days at the parks!
We are a family of animal lovers and the variety of wildlife on our doorstep was incredible. The island is home to Bald Eagles, pink Spoonbills and an Osprey as well as other birds we failed to name! We spotted an otter, a turtle, ducks and an ALLIGATOR!
Can’t wait to go back again."
