Our villa is beautiful and is lavishly decorated and has a stunning premier view overlooking and fronting the lake which is not overlooked. Your morning starts with the sun rising over the tall trees draped with spanish moss at the opposite side of the lake. You can see the mist rising over the lake surface and you have full sun all day on your deck. You can enjoy dining Al Fresco while savoring your beautiful lake view. At night, you can unwind after a hectic day at the park and sit on your private deck watching the beautiful moon rise over the lake and listen to the cicadas, toads and birds.

About Michael Lane
We are Mike and Val Lane and we bought the Lake House in 2007. Once we arrived in Lake Berkely Resort, set in beautiful grounds with mature oaks and three lakes, we know we wanted a villa on Lake Berkley Drive as this has the best premier lake view fronting the lake and it is not overlooked and private. Once the villa was ours, we modernized our villa, updating the furniture, accessories and bedding with modern luxurious furniture, and installed a beautiful new granite kitchen and added a new flat screen TV. We have 2 boys so we know how to cater for youngsters and what they like. As we vacation here 3 times a year, our villa has to be special to us so we spared no expense in upgrading the fixtures. As we vacation here so often, we are also able to address any issues guests may have and ensure that all appliances and fixtures are operating efficiently. We are constantly changing the villa and next year we will have a new website which will reflect the changes and improvements we have made.
Michael Lane purchased this villa in 2007
Why Michael Lane chose Lake Berkley
The Lake House is our oasis. It is our refuge and we constantly update it so it remains current and modern - after all it is our home from home. We treat this home better than our own home and we genuinely appreciate it when our guests return and we appreciate when they make thoughtful comments in our guest book about vacations they have had as we can live vicariously through them !
Our villa is really special. It is so special to wake in the morning and open the blinds and see the ducks swimming in the lake as the sun is rising. It is so special to sit in the pool in the evening and watch the birds return to the island on the lake preparing for the night. It is so special to take family walks around the resort and create memories that will live on forever.
We strive to keep our decor fresh and modern. This year we installed new carpet in our front living room and we added a leather sectional sofa to our main living area. We bought new pool towels for our guests comfort and we constantly review everything in the villa because we are here 3 times a year to ensure everything is working efficiently. Last year we bought top grade loungers for our guests ( thank you for the comments in the guest book) This summer a new PS3 will be added.
What makes this villa unique
How many villas are lakefront overlooking a large lake with no rear neighbours, therefore not overlooked and screened for privacy with hedging ? How many are manned and gated have an excellent management company on call 24 hours and also have a 24 hour security alarm for your extra peace of mind ? Our villa is not a business, it is our oasis from home and we regularly update it to the highest standards because we vacation here and is is our oasis. We understand kids, we have our own to cater for !!!!. Our internet access is free and high-speed - a must for today's busy lifestyle. How many villas have a state of the art slate Proline pool table ? How many have 6 overstuffed loungers from Palm Casual on your lake side deck and fishing equipment, tennis request and beach equipment for your enjoyment ?
Guestbook comments from the manager
We wanted to thank you for allowing us the use of your vacation home. It was all that we expected and more. Your home allowed our stay to be very comfortable, especially after our long days at Universal Studios,,,,,,!!!!! Our children greatly enjoyed the game room and pool area. This kept them busy and us relaxed!!! If you have children, I am sure you know how important that was.....
Once again, thank you very much!!!
