Why this property? /HibiscusontheLake/
Since the year 2000 one of our favourite family vacation places has been Florida. We have stayed in many different villas and many gated communities over the years. By far the best is Lake Berkley. We stayed on this resort consistently for a number of years, making the decision to buy a home in this community a very easy one. Especially when this particular home came on the market. It’s prime location and view is unrivalled on Lake Berkley.
