My family and I have enjoyed numerous vacations in Florida and have always rented villa's on the Lake Berkley resort. We have visited friends in other resorts but the locality to all the attractions and the fact that Lake Berkley is a secure 24hr security guarded and gated resort really makes Lake Berkley special !!.
There are plenty of other resorts that we could have chosen to stay, and in fact many of our friends did chose the less exclusive, cheaper option. However they were always round at our house and always commented on its 'Superiority' to other resorts.
The very first time I travelled on a plane we came over to Florida..... which was quite late in my life compared to some and we fell in love with the place, the people and especially the resort.
We cater for families that travel from not just the USA and Canada but from all over the world.
We alway keep our house in the best possible condition, with regular visits each year to make upgrades to our already fabulously equipped house. So watch this space for a potential theater room coming very soon !!
Our grandchildren love the place and we are fond of being close enough to the parks to be able to pop back home mid afternoon, have a dip in our pool and then go back for the evening entertainment. A whole 12 hours at the Disney parks can be a little too much for us 'Seniors' !!
The manned 24 hour security gate provides peace of mind for me and my family, and the resort itself is always extremely well kept by the numerous groundsmen who work very hard to maintain the standard we have become used to.
Betty purchased this villa in 2011
Why Betty chose Lake Berkley
We decided on Lake Berkley mainly because of its location to Disney and the other parks. Our home is close enough to pop back from Disney in the afternoon, take a dip in the pool and freshen up before returning for the night time fireworks display.
The resort has a great, fully heated communual pool which caters well for younger children with a smaller pool.
The gym is ideal for a quick workout and again is on site so you dont have to go far.
Also the huge Wallmart is only 3 minutes away in the car and is ideal for stocking up with goodies !
Every time we come accross we are extremely pleased to see how well the grounds are kept. The fishing lake is well stocked and provides a great place for our sons to catch fish whilst we look on from the comfort of our Hot tub overlooking the lake.
What makes this villa unique
We feel that our home is unique to many others and provides an excellent way to enjoy your central Florida vacation for the following reasons......
1) We are a polite, friendly and responsive family who ALWAYS reply to any contact we have with our guests within 90 minutes. (Between 0700 and 2200 GMT).
Why anyone would book a home where the owner takes 5-6 hours to get back to them is beyond me ?
2) We offer a FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED games room. NOT just a hot garage with a pool table in it. Our games room includes PS3, Slate bed pool table (Not a $400 table from Walmart) , Gaming chairs and professional foosball table.
3) Our 220V HOT TUB includes a full embiance package which includes MP3 docking station and coloured lighting. We did not opt for the less expensive 110V models like many other homes. Why would you want to waste time waiting for the hot tub to warm up whilst you are on vacation.....time is precious !!
4) We offer a unique lake view looking out over the larger of the lakes at Lake Berkley. This lake is the only lake in which the houses that back over it are not overlooked by any neighbours. For guests who DONT want to be watched eating their breakfast alfresco style or enjoying family time in the pool then this villa is for you.
5) We offer a range of extra's to our guests including two sets of golf clubs, fishing rods, a sat nav unit, high chairs, baby strollers, stair gates and tennis rackets to name a few.
6)Our electronic entertainment equipment includes a full cable TV package,
Flat screen HDTV with DVD players in all bedrooms, a huge 55 inch flat screen TV,PS3, a plasma TV in the games room, blu ray player and Ipod docking station.
WATCH OUT FOR OUR NEW THEATRE ROOM INCLUDING CINEMA CHAIRS !!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Many thanks for prompt return of the security deposit which we received today.
Just like to say thanks from all our party for the use of your lovely villa for the last two weeks. It was all as described and more. We have stayed in a number of villas in Orlando before and we all agreed this was the best. The house itself was immaculate but the location was just amazing . The outlook on to the lake was so beautiful and was so relaxing on our down times. I would certainly recommend your villa to all our friends as i think they could not go wrong in choosing yours if they were organising a trip to Florida. If there was any website that you would like me to leave a review on I would be happy to oblige.
Once again many thanks.
