We are the Miller family--Stephen, Lisa , Brandon, and Lauren from Halifax , Nova Scotia, Canada. We are an active family, who enjoy traveling around the world, and all sorts of outdoor activities and sports. We love living in Maritime Canada, but love having a southern retreat to escape to during our cool maritime winters.
Stephen or Lisa Miller purchased this villa in 2011
We picked this property in Lake Berkley for several reasons. Firstly, it is a quite well maintained community with 24 hour security. It is close to all amenities and attractions, including the airport, and major theme parks in Central Florida. The resort itself is not huge, which attracted us to it, as it has a very family friendly feeling. The house is on a larger corner lot, with a southern exposure and partial lake view. This was important to us, since we wanted to be near the lake, but a little further away from it, to help ensure safety for younger vacationers. The home has mature landscaping, and is relatively private in this community despite being on a corner lot.
It is a well maintained resort, with a nice clubhouse, which was newly renovated in 2012, infinity pool, hot tub, tennis and basketball courts. It has a nice walking trail, which is great to start your day! The home had been newly redone and upgraded inside and out over the past year. There is little that it lacks!
This villa was in magnificent condition , luxury comfort , very clean and a pleasure to stay in. We had one occasion to call customer service and our problem was resolved within 5 minutes. Excellent service. I would be delighted to recommend this villa to any person I know going to Orlando.
We did a lot of shopping needless to say , Premium outlets on Tuesdays only as they offer additional 10% discount for seniors (over 55s) with passport. If you are looking for quality weather clothing , check out Colunbia brand shop as they had really good quality clothing similar to North Face , only 50 - 60% cheaper.
Make sure you get there early 10 - 10.30 as parking can be a problem due to large numbers shopping.
Buena Vista was the other shopping outlet which offered excellent discounts.There is also great bargains available in Tommy Clearance and Nike Clearance on the 192 . Sketchers on the same road further down towards Kissimmee has a special area at the back that offers up to 70% discount which was excellent.
The restaurants we enjoyed were The Outback (happy hours 4-7) , The Olive Garden , The Red Lobster and Longhorns . All were excellent , very reasonably priced and local on the 192. We also visited Steak and Shake for a light snack where all meals were under $4.Again on 192.
We also went to Capones on 192 for a dinner show which included drinks.. We had the discount vouchers (make sure you get them in any Walmart entrance) . The food was excellent with a very nice variety , the show itself was very enjoyable and the service of drinks was prompt and there was certainly no shortage. All in all great value for a very enjoyable evening.
We played a lot of golf . I recommend you book and pay all golf online as there can be savings to be made . We played Royal St, Cloud $29 , Panthers Lake $75 and Celebration $81. All great courses . Royal St. Cloud was cheap and very enjoyable. Surprisingly good value . We played it 4 times.
This is our third time staying at this villa and we absolutely LOVE IT!. Everything just perfect, a real home from home. Location great for parks/malls etc. The gated complex is very secure and safe. Can't praise the owners enough for their efficient service and their perfect holiday home. Thank you.
What a wonderful vacation property! It was our first time in Florida and we couldn't have picked a better location or house. Everything was very clean and super organized. The home is decorated very tastefully and it was spacious and comfortable. We looked forward to coming to the house each evening after a long day at the parks. Our boys loved the pool! The security folks at Lake Berkley are very friendly and helpful. The neighbourhood is quiet and the lovely lake with walking path was very nice. We were close to all the parks and a large WalMart just up the street was very convenient for supplies. Highly recommend this vacation property!
Our stay was everything we had hoped for. The house was beautifully decorated and well maintained and immaculately clean. The heated pool and screened porch was so nice to come home to after a long day at the parks. The location was perfect for a family vacation as it was close to the theme parks, shopping, and golf. We have been to Orlando many times but this has been definitely the best value for our money. We would (and have ) definitely recommended this property to family and friends and can't wait to go back again soon !
We stayed at the villa in Aug 2012 (not as stated in 'date of arrival') and our family had a wonderful stay. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and the villa was clean, tidy and as described. The location is good, near a supermarket for provisions and an easy drive to the parks. I would highly recommend it. We have four boys and they loved the pool, games room and games console! Beds were comfy.
Wonderful stay at the Miller home over New Year's Week! They have thought of everything you may need for a week, so all you have to do is bring your clothes. Excellent game room, very nice kitchen, warm pool, beautiful furniture, instructions for where to find everything in the house, convenient to grocery, restaurants, and all parks without being in the bustle of Orlando. Plus, it's just so much nicer to come back to a house instead of a hotel. On top of all that, you have access to the resort if desired. We've stayed in Lake Berkley before, but enjoyed it more this trip since we stayed in this home. Already plan to book again next year.
Our home in Lake Berkley Resort is conveniently located and is close to all amenities.It is private enough that you can not hear any nearby traffic or the usual signs of 'city life'.
