As frequent English visitors to Florida we were always 'keeping an eye open' for the right property! There were lots of resorts but none as spacious and well presented as Lake Berkley. The opportunity came to settle after many years travelling as a British Army family. The house is a family home that we rent out, not a business. We spend many weeks every year in our Florida home. As well as all the attractions nearby it has been a great place to explore the rest of Florida from.
Lake Berkley is a real surprise - such an elegant, spacious, quiet, refined, gated resort with the bonus of being so close to all the action. We benefit from spacious plots that are thoughtfully landscaped in a well maintained resort with plenty of open, attractive, recreational space. Evening walks around the wood fringed lakeside are a real treat or just sitting watching the birds roost onto the island in the middle of the lake as the sun sets...A great change of pace. The villa is truly fully equipped with an airconditioned games room, flat screen TVs in all bedrooms as well as the living area with plenty of DVDs and Videos and a few books and boardgames....if you ever have the time! You can easily self cater or call any number of delivery restaurants so you just operate the fork rather than the oven! Lake Berkley has a quiet period after 9pm which means a romantic or family chat over your late dinner with outside dining or....inside you own home from home do as you please. If the good life is loading a few extra pounds the clubhouse Gym will help only a 5 minute walk away. We saw many resorts before buying at Lake Berkley and were attracted by the calm elegance and the space. There are so many resorts that have crammed and crowded buildings into smaller and smaller areas which we did not feel helped us trying to relax and unwind.
When you open the front door you are welcomed into a home....not just a 'rental property'. You feel at home and relaxed with everything you need...right down to the family coolbox! Just bring yourselves, everything else you need is already here. Relax by your own pool or be in Disney in 10 minutes, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or Universal in 25. For the aquatic Shamu lover Seaworld is just 15 minutes from your own pool. Try Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon - Disney Waterparks only 12 minutes away. There are a selection of good value family restaurants within 5 minutes of the villa. For fine dining Downtown Disney offers both themed dining and elegant options. A great hit for children of all ages are the dinner shows; Medieaval Times (The Castle jousting and feasting is 2 minutes from Lake Berkley) or Arabian Nights with the famous White Horses, just 10 minutes away.
Being so central means that the Gulf Coast, Tampa and the famous Busch Gardens are all easy day out trips. Or shorten the drive and leave a little later in the morning for Legoland (35 miles). A trip east to the space coast and Canaveral is a must and only an hour. Cocoa Beach is , also within easy reach (69 miles). For a longer day or maybe an overnight trip go to historic St Augustine on the east coast, first settled by the Spanish in the 16th Century and still sporting some of the original fortifications. Clearwater Beach is 96 miles. The Keys are also within striking distance for a night or two away. Back in Kissimmee try the airboat rides, the Warbird Air Museum, Gatorland or are you a serious shopper? If so, daylong Mall browsing is available for several days in different venues! (Florida Mall-15 miles, Orlando Prime Outlets-9 miles) There is much more too but you may need a little time for yourself or book an extra week when you return next year!
