Meet the owner

Chris Melaisi

Hello,

We are the Melaisi family, owners of Bearlake villa. Due to my husband’s commitments we currently live between Qatar and the UK. He is currently a long haul pilot and we have been fortunate to travel extensively. A few of our hobbies include Art, Music and the wonderful theme parks . For all of our family FLORIDA offers all this and much more.

Through our family we were able to take over and run the villa and continue to keep it to its normal high standards. We believe it should feel like home from home. It is well equipped and truly private and tranquil. It has easy access to the theme parks and surrounded by good shopping facilities & restaurants.

We are proud to say we have had repeat guests over many years and this is due to our commitment and effort in keeping the villa well maintained and updated just as one would expect in their own home.

Please feel free to contact us at any time, we look forward to welcoming you some day

Location

For privacy reasons, the marker on the map shows the Cypress Lakes community location and not actual villa location.


Summary

The villa is situated on Cypress Lakes which is quiet mainly residential area ideally placed among small lakes and conservation areas. The area is just 15 minutes from Walt Disney World® Resort on the new direct link, Osceola Parkway, and just 3 minutes from the local shopping centre which includes two supermarkets, a large Wal-Mart and numerous other small shops and restaurants. It is also about 20 minutes drive from the main shopping malls and other attractions. The location includes, within 5 mins, a children's play area, tennis, basketball and two nearby golf courses. The villa is ideal for the times when you want to spend a quite time away from the parks. When you sit in the pool area you are not overlooked by any other homes and can truly relax. If the children don't want to play in the pool then there's always the games room to keep them happy. If you do need to keep in touch with friends then our wireless broadband PC can help.

About this Villa:



A superbly decorated and furnished property fully equipped for up to 6 people. Well positioned on a oversized plot overlooking a lake and near a conservation area. The villa is located in a small circle of only four homes and this is set off from a 'no through road' giving a quite location with no passing traffic.



This villa has a large sun deck which is facing South West allowing both sun and shade all day. You can sit and have your breakfast or morning coffee while enjoying that pleasant warmth of an early Florida morning.



We have just updated most of the furniture and decorations in the living areas and included a new 42" LED TV in the family room; all of which can be seen on our new virtual tour.



We wanted a clean but luxurious approach to our floors so we had a Maple hardwood floor laid in the living room, dining room and all the bedrooms. We complemented this with a ceramic tile for the kitchen, family room and bathrooms for a clean and functional surface. There are three bedrooms which include a master bedroom with queen bed and walk in closet, TV and DVD, vanity unit and en suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed with another TV and DVD, the 3rd has twin beds also with TV and DVD. Two cots, a high chair and a stroller are included for those with younger children.



The villa has a large kitchen and family room with the new 42" TV and DVD. The Nook area provides an indoor casual eating area where you can relax while watching both the pool and lake area. The sofas in this area give you a place to all relax while watch one a the many channels available on the HD TV. The kitchen comes equipped with everything you should need to make your stay easy and enjoyable. We have also added some extras that are not so normal such as a rice cooker and Krups Juicer for those that want that special homemade fresh drink.



However for those of you who that love their coffee an extra treat awaits you here. We have installed one of the latest one touch Bean to Cup coffee maker by DeLonghi. A single touch will grind the beans and then deliver a perfect one or two shot Espresso, Latte or Cappuccino. The machine can switch on automatically in the morning ready for you to have your morning drink while you sit by the pool and watch the wildlife on the lake.



If you feel like a little time on your own then you can always move to the separate formal lounge. This has a soft sofa and chair, a music centre with docking port and the villa's WiFi station. This also comes with a printer for those that need to produce their own boarding passes. A six seater glass table provides the main feature of the formal dining area should you want to sit down for a family dinner.



A family bathroom, a laundry room with washer and dryer and a games area, described below, complete the indoor areas of the villa.



The pool measures 30' x 15' and has solar with electronic control and electric heating for the winter. The oversized pool deck (900sq ft) has two loungers, two reclining chairs, a table with chairs and two sun umbrellas. A good view over the lake makes this an ideal place to relax in between your days outings. The lake may also be fished freely and we provide a selection of rods for your use. If you or the children want to do something different then why not try our games room. Here you will find a pool table, air hockey and foosball. The property has well maintained gardens, with palm trees but oranges can be picked when in season from our own tree. Hibiscus and jasmine are some of the plants that add colour and complete privacy as they cover the side views of the villa so that it is never overlooked. The optional electric pool heating will boost water temperature from Oct to Mar.

Excellent Stay

5.0 / 5

Bearlake villa was perfect for us. Excellent location, great view over the lake, spacious and very clean. The pool was lovely and the kids especially like the water slide....a great bonus!

We particularly liked the nautical decor and the 'bean to cup' coffee machine!

We look forward to staying there again!

Perfect place to stay in Orlando

5.0 / 5

Bearlake really gave us the wow factor on arrival. Everything you could want is here, and with such a short drive to all the major attractions I cannot ever see us booking hotels again. Location was great, just 20 mins from Disney, and the extra touches like pool table and BBQ were a real positive. Excellent communication from Chris too. Would recommend, 5*, excellent!

Perfect Holiday

5.0 / 5

My family enjoyed a fantastic stay in this spacious 3 bedroom villa. Highlights of our stay here include the large swimming pool which our children loved, the secluded location and open aspect which provided privacy and peace and the well equipped house. The owners, were extremely helpful and provided plenty information and tips to help us make the most of our stay. I have no hesitation in recommending this great value villa!

Wonderful holiday at Bear Lake

5.0 / 5

My husband,daughter and grandson (7 yrs) have recently returned from Bear lake. I do not hesitate to highly recommend this family home from home with all amenities. The icing on the cake for all of us was the gorgeous outdoor pool which was at a constant 75 degrees, overlooking the lake with fascinating wildlife. The villa is in a cul de sac so, very peaceful. If we return to Orlando area we would definetitely want to stay in Bear lake again. Thank you Chris for letting us enjoy your lovely spacious home. Daphne.

Bearilliant !!!!!!!!

5.0 / 5

We had so much fun staying at Bearlake villa. Our 2 young daughters especially loved the swimming pool and games room. We even cancelled our plans to attend the Disney parks on a couple of days, just so we could relax and make full use of the wonderful amenities at the villa.

This was our first experience in staying in a private home and even though friends of ours had recommended it, we were still a little apprehensive. We didn't need to worry. The owners, couldn't have been more helpful.

They sent us a very detailed information pack, which included everything we needed to know, prior to our holiday. As well as info regarding the house,

We look forward to coming again in the future.

Perfect Villa

5.0 / 5

We stayed at Bearlake in sept 2016 and I would highly recommend to anyone. The Villa itself is even better than the pictures show.
We loved the pool and the main Osceola parkway takes you straight to Disney so the commute is straightforward for parks.
Plenty of amenities close by for eating and shopping.
When we next plan a trip to Orlando we will definitely book bearlake :)

Very relaxing

5.0 / 5

A lovely relaxing villa set in a quiet neighbourhood, very comfortable and had everything you needed. Conveniently located for Walmart and lots of restaurants and only 20 minutes away from all the Disney parks.
We had a very enjoyable stay especially coming home from a full day out to relax in the lovely warm pool.
Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful Villa

5.0 / 5

We had great fun staying at Bear Lake Villa. It's a lovely spacious villa and in a great location for going to Disney, only about 20 mins drive away. Very friendly neighbours. The villa is very well equipped and clean. The pool and garden are completely not overlooked in any way so you have total privacy. The kids loved hanging out in the pool and playing on the pool slide. We enjoyed the beautiful view in the evening of the sunset over the lake. It has a great games room and the kitchen has everything you need. Great communication from the owners throughout the whole booking process. We would completely recommend this villa, it was perfect.

Would stay again

5.0 / 5

This was the third time that my wife & I have stayed at Bear Lake villa, previously two fortnight stays but had the chance to stay for a month this time, still could have stayed longer.
Smashing villa, ideally located with no passing vehicular or pedestrian traffic, always feels safe.
I would highly recommend this villa to all my friends & family.

Recommended Villa/Home in Orlando

5.0 / 5

We've been there in Summer 2015 (July), and we've loved it from the first Minute. Fully equipped, lovely furnished with a beautiful pool (our Kids loved them) and well located to all well-known amusement parks of Orlando.
One day, we will return and enjoy the home of Mr&Mrs Melaisi again.
With best regards

Florida Dream

5.0 / 5

My family and I have had the pleasure of staying in this lovely villa on 2 occasions, it is clean comfortable with a fantastic pool area which we enjoyed having our breakfast by every morning. The villa is near by to all the attractions, shopping malls, and has a large Walmart & Publix supermarket nearby. There is also a large range of restaurants catering for all tastes a short drive away. We hope to have many more holidays in Florida and would have no hesitation in rebooking this villa.

Wonderful Villa

5.0 / 5

We had a wonderful stay in 104 Bear Lake Villa this year and would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family. The villa is beautifully laid out with excellent facilities and a wonderful pool overlooking a small lake. The neighborhood is typically American and very relaxed and we felt very much at home. The owner, Chris, supplied a very comprehensive amount of information about Orlando with guides to all of the main attractions as well as where to eat and shop for groceries etc. We will definitely return in future years and would like to thank the owners for opening up their Florida home to us.

For the perfect Orlando visit

5.0 / 5

The best Florida villa we have visited so far with plenty of parking space tucked away down a small very private road. Completely private pool area backing onto a lake. Nice size rooms, and a games area in the garage. If I ever bought a home in Florida this villa would be the target to match. We have already booked to return in 2016.

Home from Home

5.0 / 5

This villa is just delightful. Very well placed for Disney and all the theme parks - plus there's a Walmart around the corner and lots of shops just a few minutes drive away.

The villa overlooks a lake and as it's in a cul-de-sac there's no through traffic so is very peaceful.

Very well equipped kitchen - plus TV (with cable) in every room - apart from the bathrooms........!

Our favourite time in Florida was when we were at the villa - sitting with a drink, our feet in the pool, and watching the sun go down over the lake.

Can't wait to go back!
