Lake Berkley is a nice community and at the moment seems to be a great value. It is one of the first resort style communities completed by Park Square Homes. The other one is Southern Dunes in Haines City.
They have since done several more, each one slightly different/better? than the one before. The latest are Bella Vida and Watersong.
It really depends on your preference and balancing that with the renters preferences. Resort type communities are really gaining acceptance so Lake Berkley fits that image. It is also within walking distance to a Wal-Mart. Within 1 mile there are too many eateries to count!
Renters perceptions will vary greatly so I wouldn't worry as much about that. Many renters and buyers seem to think Emerald Island and Formosa Gardens area is the most sought after location. The funny point about that is that Lake Berkley is very close to a Disney gate as well, so go figure!
If you have fallen in love with Lake Berkley and are going to help with bookings I would go for it. If you are on the fence and want to consider other options give me a call! 407-908-8023

In my experience, when I have taken clients around, they tent to prefer the comunities closer to Disney for many reasons. Among those proximity to Disney, stronger marketing point, amenities (safety, 24 hr guard gated, security, club homes with pools, sport courts, tiki bars, Spa services, Consierge services, game rooms, movie rooms, fitness fascilities).
Its important to met not only your personal needs, but those of your future customers. Therefore finding the home within your price range and with maximum marketability is highly important. I have lived in a Disney area short term community for 18 years, and know the options pretty well. Fell free to contact me if i could be of assistance.
I agree with Carlos about there being many options available to you right now.
It really depends on your preferences and what you would like the community itself to have.
If you are coming to the states soon, I would love to show you around.
Some communities you could look at are Windsor Palms, Emerald Island (Iâ€™ve seen some prices comparable to Lake Berkley there lately), Terra Verde, West Haven, Solana, etc.
Make sure you see the other communities because the worst thing is buying somewhere and then finding out there was a better alternative.
I could send you properties and also give you a tour of the different communities around the area if youâ€™d like. You may contact me with the info below.
Best Regards and Good Luck!
