About Alan Roberts
We are a family of four, Andrea and myself with two grown up children Dale and Danielle.
Alan Roberts purchased this House in 2004
Why Alan Roberts chose Regal Palms
We love Regal Palms, there is a real feel of being on holiday which you don't always get at a pool home. You are able to socialise with other people and get to make friends around the pool and at the bar and restaurant, without having to squash into a hotel room at the end of the day. There is plenty of space to go home and relax when you put the children to bed, and no fear of having to rush to get out in the morning. It is a proper home from home, but with amenities to enjoy right on the doorstep.
What makes this House unique
We do offer a discount if your booking matches another booking so we have no gaps. Please ask at enquiry stage if your booking meets the requirements to have a discount. These discounts vary depending on time of year and rates all ready advertised as some mouths are as low as we can offer.

Condo was great for our family. Privacy was good with all the bedrooms and condo. Pool area was beautiful.
We loved this property! All the conveniences of home and a short 3 min walk to pool area. Thanks for providing a few little things,like camp chairs and pool floats! Would definitely stay here again . Management was very polite and professional . Thanks for a great vacation stay!!
Best location close to clubhouse
Clean and spacious
This is by far our favorite VRBO we have stayed in. The townhouse is beautiful and very spacious. There is a short walk to the pool area. We were here 5 days and only went to Universal. The other days were spent by the pool. Our 6 year old loved the lazy river(bring a float or noodle, they are not free/provided) little playground, slide, and climbing structure in the arcade. They have a beach volleyball court and cornhole too. The townhouse is within walking distance of Publix and a liquor store. Only like 5 miles away is a Target, many restaurants, and other stores. We cannot wait to come back here...beautiful place to stay.
Hi Sara Lyn, Thank you for your kind words, it is nice to know we are your favourite place to stay through VRBO!
I must say we love the lazy river too. There are often noodles left behind by previous guests, so on occassion you may be lucky to benefit from this, but you cannot guarantee it. The shop by the pool does stock them though as do Publix and Walmart which are only a short distance away, and the resort does provide the air for inflating them, so no need to stress about that.
Best wishes to you and the family
We had a great stay here. About 20-25 minutes from any of the Disney parks. The family loved the pool and facilities. The home was clean and as described. It's "lived in", but as a person who has stayed in many short term rentals it was comfortable and clean, and much much better then many I've stayed at. Towels, bedding, etc are all clean and new. The on site restaurant has a fairly extensive menu at reasonable prices (though the alcoholic beverages are pretty steep).
Definitely recommend the condo and the owners. Easy communication and zero issues.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and found it convenient for the parks.
We love the pool and facilities at the resort and find it a perfect upgrade to being at a hotel where the family would have to return to a shared room.
If you should ever wish to return you have our email address we would be glad to welcome you back.
GREAT VACATION....NICE PLACE
REALLY NICE RESSORT ...ONLY THING MISSING WOULD BE PATIO CHAIR OUTSIDE THE HOUSE ...GOOD THING WE HAD OUR BEACH CHAIR !!!
Hi Daniel, we are pleased to hear that you liked the resort. Unfortunately we do not have patio chairs because most guests innocently assume that the resort is owned by a large corporation and just move outside furniture around to the properties where they need it. It isn't cost efficient for us to keep replacing these items. However if you should return there should be some fold away chairs in the downstairs bedroom closet?
Best wishes to you and your family
Although it is recommended to have a car for your daily activities, the location of our property has the huge advantage that it is physically possible to walk to a supermarket, bank, restaurants and bars. This makes it ideal if all the adults in a party would like to have an alcoholic beverage with their meal.
Berry Town is only a five minute walk from the entrance to the resort (7 minutes from our actual property). At Berry Town Centre you will find a Publix supermarket, SunTrust Bank, Applebee's and IHOP restaurants, plus Sundays English bar, serving English favourites to eat and drink. There are numerous take aways also ranging from pizza, burgers, Thai, Chinese and Janpanese cuisine...something for everyone's taste buds!
For everyday essentials the nearest Walmart is only a 5 minute drive North on the 27. There is a whole array of restaurants along the 192 which is also only 5 minutes drive away, there are too many to mention in their entirety but include Bahama Breeze, Mannys Chop House, Longhorns Steakhouse etc.
Without doubt the top attraction for this area is the theme parks, and who doesn't want a piece of the magic that is Disney World?
Our property is 13 miles from the entrance to Disney and takes approximately 20 minutes to drive there.
For the thrill seekers amongst you, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, offer bigger rides to get your adrenaline going, these parks are 23 miles from our property and the drive takes approximately 30 minutes.
Sea World and Discovery Cove are situated around this proximity too, with a 20 mile drive from Regal Palms taking approximately 25 minutes.
If you want to venture a little further, why not head West and try Busch Gardens? It offers a good combination of wildlife and rollercoasters, a great day out for the whole family. It is a 57 mile drive from Regal Palms on the I4 and will take you approximately 55 minutes to reach the attraction.
Florida is not all about the thrill of the theme parks though, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy your time in the Sunshine State.
How about exploring the in depth work by NASA to see how they prepare to venture into other parts of the universe. Kennedy Space Centre is 72 miles away, and is a great educational visit for young and old.
For a totally chilled out day, head to one of the beautiful beaches on offer. Cocoa beach is the closest at 80 miles, and Daytona not far behind at 85 miles. If you are feeling lazy and want to recuperate from the parks, put your feet up and enjoy a cocktail or two whilst enjoying the sun. Alternatively book in for some surfing lessons and learn to ride those waves!
Visit the Everglades and get up close (although not too close!) with the alligators. It is a long drive, almost 4 hours away from Regal Palms, but to see the wildlife in its natural habitat is worth every minute of it. If you don't want to travel so far, head East towards Lake Tohopekaliga where you will find Boggy Creek Airboat Tours, it is only 26 miles and approximately 40 minutes driving time. They offer half day tours, where you can still get a taste of the nature that surrounds Florida.
If you would prefer to enjoy a totally different view of Florida that not many visitors get to see, experience the sun coming up from a hot air balloon. There are many tours that depart a short distance from Regal Palms, and if you are lucky your pilot will descend to a height above where you are staying so that you can get a different perspective of your accomodation.
Florida has some of the best golf courses in the world, there are too many to mention, many of which are in close proximity to our location. Highlands Reserve which is a par 72 championship course is the nearest to the resort (only a three minute drive) but can highly recommend Celebration and Champions Gate also which are not too far to drive.
If shopping is your thing, there are several designer malls and outlets in the area, try picking up a bargain at Premium Outlets, or the Mall at Millenia. Alternatively drive to Disney Springs and indulge yourself with all the retail therapy you could ever imagine. When you cannot hold any more bags retreat to one of the many restaurants or bars that are on offer.
On Friday nights take a trip to Old Town in Kissimmee, where they hold a weekly parade of classic cars. It is a spectacle to be seen, plus there are several amusements and rides for the kids to enjoy, whilst you do some window shopping or grab something to eat.
