Great for wildlife, you could come across a turtle crossing the road or ducks follow you to the door hoping to be fed. See the deer at dusk stroll in the grass, watch the otters plan rolling in the grass with a fish at daybreak. See Eagles swoop in the Lake for their breakfast., they nest close to the villa and they are a pair now. All this and Disney just down the road and the convenience of a 24/7 Super Walmart just 2 minutes away. You can even fish from our stocked Lakes.
Why Kids Love It
Kids love the resort, the private pool especially. Its a big part of their vacation to be able to open the door and swim while watching the ducks watch you! Our pool has one of the largest decks on the resort and we provide lots of soft loungers and seating. Feeding the ducks with their babies is always a big hit with the kids as they wait patiently by the pool door. Relaxing in the spa and eat al fresco while the sun shines every morning. Our game room has everything from games consoles , pool table, foosball table decorated with lots of characters.Disney dress up Costumes they love to parade in, The twin bedrooms have so many hand painted characters murals on the walls, it continues the dream for them as this is truly a magical time.

Attractions Within Walking Distance
A stroll around the Lake or a Jog if you like is best in the mornings while all the birds are gathering, the turtles are sleepily basking in the sun on the lake edge. Pause in the Gazebo and watch out over the Lake see Blue gill fish jump and watch Egrets stir the water for their breakfast.

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We travelled to Florida every year but got a bit fed up with poor accommodation the travel agents were giving us while charging premium prices. We started booking direct and getting good quality renting. We found Lake Berkley, loved it so much that we brought our home here. We just had never found a resort like it, so quiet, no noisy cars on highways, so much wild life to watch, so close to everything and we love the Guard on the gate makes you feel safe.
We have grandchildren now who have also travelled many times to the house which is why we know what the children look for on vacation. Toys while waiting for you to be ready for the parks, Sparkling pool to swim in between park visits. So much baby equipment as we have taken our grandchildren from 3 months old there, it makes travelling with little ones easy.
Why this property? This villa It is the best position on the resort in many guests opinion not just own own. It sits on a large corner plot but looks over the whole lake with no neighbours watching you swim. The views are stunning. I love the wildlife, watch mating Eagles catch their breakfast in the Lake, Otters roll with their cubs in the grass. We have invested a lot of money over the years in upgrades and extras to make the home comfortable for ourselves and our guests. The local management company are great if something breaks they replace it for you immediately and yes they do answer your calls.

Best house near Disneyworld
This was our first visit to Florida and it was the best time we had, what a wonderful time we had and this house was so perfect and the view of the lake with the pool was just perfect my kids loved it so much they where asking me to buy the house. I would truly recommend it if you have kids and want to spend quality time with them. I love the fact that restaurants and shopping stores are nearby. The management company are super helpful and the owner June is great on answering questions and getting back to you so quickly.

The lake view is so tranquil and hopefully you saw the Eagle fishing, he lands next to the pool screen most days with his catch. The close proximity of shops, restaurants and a 24/7 super wal-mart and being so close to all the parks is one of the reasons we chose this resort. You feel so protected with the guards on the gate stopping ever entry. Come back soon love to have such a nice family again.
We had an excellent time and the house we choose was perfect for our family. We had 10 adults and 4 children and were only minutes from the parks. The pool was perfect for unwinding after a day at the parks. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a home away from home.
