The resort is Security guarded 24/7 365 days and is just 10 minutes from DISNEY! Our resort is bar far the best kept resort in the area. The landscaping team are on resort almost daily maintaining the highest of standards.
Our home features 3 spacious MASTER BEDROOMS which all have cable TV and built in DVD facility and ceiling fans. The master bedroom downstairs has ‘his’ and ‘hers’ walk in wardrobes. The three further bedrooms (6 in total) comprise of two twin rooms and a double bedroom,these again all have HD /TV’s with built in DVD facility with ceiling fans and walk in wardrobes, making it a wonderful and ideal residence for two or three families to vacation together. This house is superbly situated, nothing is far away but when you return to the resort it's setting is extraordinary, beautiful and peaceful.
We have a completely private pool deck and lanai area with breathtaking views over the 14 acre fully stocked fishing lake. We have no rear neighbours overlooking our beautiful home which allows guests to enjoy the spectacular lake views and wildlife in peace and tranquillity. The house is located on the larger of the two lakes at in a central position, which adds to the privacy and peacefulness available on the pool deck.
The Lanai, a covered seating area with it’s own ceiling fan and light, is accessible from the family room allowing guests to sit out at all times of the day or night and enjoy the superb waterfront and wildlife. This really is a must have area for guests with small children who sometimes will just need some time out from the sun but still remain outdoors.
Our home boasts a vast variety of equipment, including free Turbo Speed Wi-Fi, free satellite navigation system, cable televisions, BBQ next to the lake, Golf clubs and bags, fishing rods and tackle, 'Play Station 3' with gaming chairs, Blu Ray player and tennis rackets for your enjoyment on the resort courts.
Our family room is grand, vast and spacious with an open plan aspect. It’s double heightened ceiling adds to the grandeur of the room. All windows, including those which are elevated are mirrored to deflect the Florida heat and compliment our fully air conditioned home. The room is superbly equipped with a 50 inch flat screen HD TV with DVD together with full cable package. The surround sound system and Ipod docking station will enable guests to personalize their music tastes whilst relaxing on one of our 'real leather' comfortable sofa's.

Our large marble edged dining table offers guests a quality and charming place to dine in comfort and style. We have an abundance of china and glassware to enable guests to dine in a splendid environment which is complimented by views from the dining area over the private lake. By featuring an open plan aspect the cook or chef will be able to fully partake in the dining experience without having to leave the room.
Our fully loaded games room or 2nd family room, really is the “Bees Knees”.

It also boasts a top quality foosball table and sofa bed, should it be required. This room is fully air conditioned together with a ceiling fan for your total comfort and enjoyment, (rather than a hot garage with a pool table and wall fan).

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
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.
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 !!
We loved the house so much we have decided to stay another week!
Just kidding, we will be out before 1000. Thank you for allowing us to rent your very awesome and nicely equipped home. We will gladly recommend your property to our friends.
We were a party of 9,various ages and we were totally amazed when we entered this beautiful property. It was clean and very well maintained. Every kitchen appliance that you could want was there, (the only two things were~the waste disposal did not work~and we could have done with a few more tea towels),,but these things did not mar the joyous time we were there...the Master Suite is fit for a king..beautiful wood furniture and an amazing en-suite..all other bedrooms very light and airy,and to be welcomed with the marvellous pool and hot tub after a hot day out was extremely appreciated.The fishing in the lake was very abundant and we very carefully placed them back into the lake...The house is very near all ameneties and you could walk to Walmart (20 mins..24 hrs), parks not too far..many good restaurants pratically on your doorstep.We would most definately recommend this holiday house and we had a visit from the Manager to ensure all was ok...booking was very straight forward and the owner Betty a very lovely lady.We would all go back for another holiday.
This home is the perfect vacation rental for the large family. You will have everything you need and then some. The owner is very prompt in communication and the local property manager is very responsive. You will like the home and its amenities so much there will be days where you will want to just stay and chill. I highly recommend this property and would very much stay again.
1st I will start by saying that we had a wonderful vacation, we took our children and grandchildren to Disney for their Christmas gift. The house, The home is in a good location, it is very close to everything that you will need. The house is large and is accommodating to a large family stay. The pool was a nice break from the days at the parks (they are very draining). The bedroom furniture is nice, good mattresses on the beds, the kitchen appliance are in good condition. The problems, 1st I would like to thank the owner/management for allowing us to have a broken washing machine (with 7 children) for the week that we were there (I guess that was not important enough to have corrected), we hoped it would be repaired/replaced since we really needed it during our stay.(We had to hand wring out our laundry, due to the washer not draining/spinning) The answer that we were giving from the Management was that they were waiting on the owner to decide to repair or replace it and that their hands were tied until the owner made the decision. 2nd the Hot tub cover is in such poor condition that you cannot hardly open it/close it. The side you open is so busted up that the stuff the cover is made of is falling all in the water. (We were told that a new one was ordered and would be there after our stay. (I wonder how many times that has been told to the renters) I am sure we were not the 1st to complain about it. (and when you as management see a problem why not address it before someone complains) 3rd we had problems with bugs mainly ants, they were attacking anything that was left on the counters and the waterbugs/cockroaches were the size of a 1/2 dollar. 4th when we checked in the condenser/air conditioner had leaked (it is in the play room) the floor was wet and stunk really bad, the smell about knocked you down when you came into the home. The maintenance came in and said that it was not leaking anymore and that someone would be there on Monday to correct the problem (THIS WAS SATURDAY!) his answer was Fabreeze! I guess I thought we were in a 5 star home from the previous reviews I really didn't expect the problems that we had in the home. When I go on vacation I don't want to have to deal with problems. I would not go back to this house and I would not recommend it due to the problems and poor management resolutions to the problems.
Well kept management was very nice to work with and the owner Betty so nice and helpful hopefully next time we can stay there again.
Property was as advertised. Very clean and well maintained ! Nice furnishings and beautiful view of the Lake ! Management services were excellent, we had trouble with a couple of TV's the first day and a gentleman was there within 10 min. and fixed the problem ! No other problems arose during our stay. Enjoyed everything very much ! I will come again , next year !!
My family of 12 stayed at this beautiful house over Thanksgiving. Everyone had plenty of space where you didn't feel like you were on top of each other. The pool was very nice and view of the lake made you feel like you were a miles away from everyone (which can be hard to do in Orlando). All of the rooms were very well decorated and beds were comfortable. Betty was extremely helpful and responsive during the booking process. House is very convenient to Disney, restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend!
Lake Berkley resort is close to ALL the major central Florida attractions. The resort is minutes away from the lively 'Highway 192' for all your dining, shopping and entertainment requirements but nicely secluded away from the hustle and bustle for families to enjoy their time together. This is a great place to holiday.
