a bargin we would ure again
I arrived at the gate house to find that the girl took no notice of me and walked of towards the club house, 15 minutes later she wanders back to be tell in a very abrupt way that I needed to go to the other door of the gate house and she would then speak to me.I did this to be told that she would not deal with me until I was in my car,eventually she said I could go. She told me that my son needed to show the paperwork I had given her.
The next day my son arrived he rang me to say that there was a man on the gate who would not let them through although he had the same papers I had and that if he did not have the invoice he would never get through the gate,I have to say there was a thunderstorm when this was happening.
I had the paperwork with me, I arrived at the gate and asked the attendant were they was, he said they were on the road in front of his scooter
He would not take the paperwork from me and I had to give it to my son it was raining that much that I could not see there car across the road,
After half an hour he allowed him through and by this time three was 8 cars waiting to go in
On the Saturday at 7.00pm we were going out of the site and there was 19 cars waiting to get into the site
Really sorry that the security staff were not very helpful, usually they are very good. I will write to the residents association to see if there have been any other complaints.
Thank you for the excellent rating.
Ideal small family villa in Lake Berkley
The villa is ideally suited close to the 192 where you can find diners and restaurants to suit most tastes. The fact that the villa is within a gated community makes it feel safer. The villa is ideal for a small family or like us 2 adults on there own. The lack of televisions in the bedrooms could be a problem for a family with children. The laundry room needs to be deep cleaned behind the machines. Also the inside top of the washing machine requires cleaning. A Walmart supermarket is just a few minutes drive away. All the main attractions are about 15 minutes drive away. Check in was very straightforward with everything being done at the main entrance. Please note we had no communication with the property manager during our stay hence the 1 star, no option of saying not applicable.
Thank you for your review and for your positive comments. The issues with the laundry room will be attended to by the management company and thank you for bringing these to my attention. As all key collection details are dealt with by the owner the managers tend to keep a low profile and leave you to enjoy your holiday. However they are always available should there be a problem and their contact details are in the guest guide book at the property.
As mentioned the villa is within easy reach of all the main attractions, supermarkets and restaurants which makes it ideal suited for family holidays .
Great house in brilliant location
We loved our stay at this house, it’s a great house with lots of space a brilliant private pool. We stayed as four adults, which meant that each couple had Not only a bedroom, but also a bathroom to themselves which we loved. The house could very easily accommodate more people as we had two spare bedrooms.
The location is fantastic and we found it very easy to travel to Disney parks, Universal Studios, and the main shopping mall and outlets. We both got taxis and drove ourselves and the longest journey was probably about 45 minutes to Universal in rush hour traffic, everywhere else was under 30 minutes.
The house is in a lovely gated community which is kept beautifully, and is very quiet. Very occasionally we could hear other families using their pools in the day when we sat outside, but nothing that disturbed us at all.
Overall we had a great stay and I would definitely recommend this property to others looking for a base to explore the Orlando area.
Thank you for the great review. It is always nice to know that guests enjoy the house as well as the resort itself. One of the reasons we chose Lake Berkley was its ease of access to all the main theme parks, restaurants and the all important shopping. As a gated community it is very quite as there is no through traffic and as our villa is south facing you can sunbathe all day if you want to.
Had a great stay here. Property very spacious with plenty of room for 5 adults and plenty to do if you're staying with children. We had a full on non-stop holiday visiting all the parks, and were so busy we didn't have time to make use of the pool although chilling in the evening with feet in the water was welcome! Location wise, there's a massive Walmart about a mile away, petrol stations and plenty of places to eat also within a short distance. Parks were within 20-40 minutes away depending on where we were going and traffic conditions early in the morning. We did also take a trip out to Busch Gardens which only took 1 hour 20. Facilities within the villa were good as we also cooked most evenings. Would recommend a stay here and I wouldn't hesitate to book again if we came back to Orlando with more than the two of us. Communication from owner also top notch -many thanks.
So glad you had a good time and the very kind comments about the villa. It's one of the main reasons we chose Lake Berkley as it is very close to all the shops, restaurants and the parks. Also as it's gated it's very quiet if you want to just chill out by the pool. Thank you for the review.
Family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed in this property beginning of October. Excellent safe location. Pool perfect for the children and actually got away without heating it!! Property had everything we needed with decent Internet and cable TV. Lots of room for 4 of us. Photos I would say are accurate. Only recommendation would be to service/replace the equipment in games room; not a huge deal for us, but each item had definitely seen better days, with the table football being the worst. However, overall would happily stay here again and recommend to others.
Thank you Nic for the great review and comments. I will have a look at the games room equipment unfortunately some guests do not treat the equipment very well, the soccer game was new two years ago and was ok when I visited last November.
Once again thanks you for a positive review.
