Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a 4 bedroom home set up as three bedrooms and a den. It is a 2 bath vacation pool home that was the actual model three bedroom home for this community. It has $20,000 worth of upgrades, custom decorating, custom furniture and custom built- in cabinets in every room. It sleeps six and is perfect for a couple or family.

The pool is also custom with a spa area that was a Jacuzzi until underground leaking pipes made us shut it off leaving a very nice location to sit and relax in the pool. Our other favorite spot is sitting in the lanai and looking out over the large pond and conservation area that backs up to the home. This was a model home and is in an open, very desirable location. The pool is private with only one neighbor, most pool homes have two or three neighbors.

The home is fully equipped with linens and towels, ready for your vacation pleasure. The owners stay here. We are twenty minutes from Disney, all the attractions, shopping, golf and dining.

You can even walk to a Super Wal-Mart! The upscale gated community is very well maintained and has a club house with exercise equipment, a separate large lake with a gazebo, child's play area, barbecue area and fishing (catch and release). You are steps from a tennis court and basket ball court. The home has high speed Wi-Fi, free telephone calling to all of US and Canada, and HD TV on a large flat screen TV in the great room.

Why Ken Khuans chose Kissimmee

We rented a home in Lake Berkley in 2000 when it was still being built. We fell in love and tried to buy, but all homes had been sold. The agent mentioned that the model home would be sold. We said we would buy it and agreed to lease it back to the developer. In August, 2003 they took the sales office out of the garage we had our first vacation there.

Nice for the price

Everything was easy breezy. Just didn't know how to turn the spa jets on.

Owner's Response: I'm glad Tiffany had a good stay. The jets in the former Jacuzzi, now a spa, are turned off as noted in the description at the website. Ken

A pleasant retreat away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice, clean home in a private gated community. It was nice to be able to access the door key at the house, rather than having to go to another location to pick it up. My husband really enjoyed having access to the pond. We also enjoyed the pool and the beautiful view overlooking the pond. We had a few minor issues during our stay, but Ken was very quick to respond and took care of them right away. Our family was in Orlando to visit Sea World and Aquatica, and this home was a very convenient drive to those attractions (about 20 minutes). It was nice having a Walmart just a few minutes away. I would definitely stay here again if we were visiting the area. I would also recommend this home to family and friends.

Great house centrally located to where we wanted to go

  • 5 of 5

overall experience was A+. We wish that the pool had a heater and the Jacuzzi had the rest of the guts to work (at least the owner forewarned us that it wasn't heated, and can attest to that being a true statement of the owner). Other then a few hiccups, it was perfect.

Lovely home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

It was so welcoming to arrive in the late evening to a den light on so we did not have to fumble in the dark. This property is well kept inside and out. All amenities expected in a self catering property were there for our use. Pool heater did it's job, and was worth the extra charge. The community of Lake Berkley was so nice and friendly, really enjoyed the walking trail around the lake. Also, Ken, The homeowner was friendly and very easy to deal with, which made for a worry free property rental.

House well cared for in beautiful Lake Berkley

  • 5 of 5

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.
