House was well maintained and cared for. Ken was in contact with me right from my first message and made the reservation process hassle free. I arrived on a Friday to spend the July 4th weekend poolside with my wife and 3 small children. The house was clean and there's plenty of space inside the house for everyone to spread out. The pool is beautiful and well maintained. Walmart and other stores are a quick drive away. The Lake Berkley community is very quiet and upscale. The gated community is very well cared for. I felt very safe. I definitely plan to stay here again.
The transaction to book was very easy. Ken was very friendly and made our family feel comfortable renting from him. When we arrived the community is secure and staff is friendly. The home is absolutely beautiful. We received many compliments that this home was the best seen out of several homes in the community. Very convenient location to shopping, dining and entertainment. We will definitely rent again.
Let me start with the good things, Location was good. Nice back yard view. Love the layout of the house. Ken was very nice to talk with and got right back to us when booking. Neighborhood was gated and close to stores and restaurants. Only 25 minutes to I-4 Disney exit. Easy to take back roads to other parts of town.
On to other points....
When we arrived I was not happy to see mold seeping through the roof line at front door. After opening the front door I had a good look around only to find the house had not been swept or vacuumed. The bed sheets were worn but seemed to have been washed. Looking into the 3rd bedroom I noticed a grey stain on the carpet near the closet, so I opened the closet door.... Shocked...MOLD on wall and carpet. Upon calling the owner to mention this, his reply was that it was from the AC unit. Mold can be very harmful to peoples health....so I wish we had been told before renting.
Overall.... needs some new linen, slipcovers to cover the stains on the white couches, working cable in master, and MOLD problems fixed then it would be a 5 star.
My family and I had a great time while staying in this beautiful gated community. Theme parks are not too far away, and there are numerous stores and restaurants near by. The home included free calling to Canada and the US, and we were glad to take advantage of it. Ken was good to deal with and helped make renting online a positive experience. We will be back on our next trip to Florida.
Ken has a great property in a great neighborhood. The house is as advertised, it is roomy, nicely decorated and close to all of Orlando's many attractions. We stayed the week after Thanksgiving and had wonderful weather (we were thankful for the pool heat though) and loved being able to get to Disney in just a few minutes. Ken was always quick to answer any questions we had and even called us with an answer on our arrival. We definitly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year!
We had a great stay in this home, morning coffee is always better when sitting pool side. The house was well equipped and the open layout of the house will accommodate many. The location was centrally located to everywhere we traveled. The neighborhood was quiet, clean and safe. Felt very comfortable on late night walks. The owners were easy to work with and offered helpful information prior to our visit.
