Lake Berkley House Rental Photos and Description

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. Our favorite spot is sitting in the lanai and looking out over the large pond and conservation area that backs up to the home. The was a model home and is in an open, very desirable location.

The home is fully equipped and ready for your vacation pleasure. The owners stay there and everything is perfect and very clean. We are ten minutes from Disney, all the attractions, shopping, golf and dining.

You can even walk to a Super Wal-Mart!

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.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Moldy and out dated

  • 2 of 5

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 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.

Owner's Response: Kris made this three night reservation three days before arrival at the end of Easter week. The family that was in the home for two weeks was leaving at 2 pm and Kris was arriving at night, so there should have been enough time for the cleaners. I know from experience that cleaners do not like these "back to back" reservations with limited time for cleaning/laundry. Apparently, the cleaners did a less than adequate vacumning. Kris called when she arrived and told be about this. I apologized. I notified the cleaners of this and that guests were upset. I made it clear that if this happened again, I would hire new cleaners. Kris did note that the bedding and bathrooms were clean. The mold issue is something else. The condesation pipe for the AC in the garage clogged last year and when Kris mentioned the water stain in the closet, I assumed this was from the water overflow in the garage last year (on the other side of the closet wall). The water would run under the wall to the carpet. This would leave a water stain, not mold. Kris sent me a picture and there was a 1 X 1 1/2 foot water stain on the carpet inside the closet. I was unaware of this and last week had carpet and upholestry professionaly cleaned. The carpet cleaner noted that this was a water stain and there was no evidence of mold. I notified Kris of this and sent her the documentation on the invoice from the carpet cleaners for her piece of mind. I also thanked her again for sending the picture of the water stain so I could have this cleaned. There is a small discolored area on the stucco high outside the porch area that was probably where a long gone tree limb was rubbing there. It is not mold. Finally, the home is outdated!! It is a 2001 model home that looks much the same as it did when we bought it from the developers. It has custom wood built cabinetry in all the rooms, custom pool, perfect, show-case location in the community, custom furniture that was made for this home, not purchased from a catalog. We love this home and Lake Berkley. THE HOME EVEN HAS A REAL DEN. Look at the picture. The pictures at the web site are current. The home looks like the pictures and we think that is pretty neat. There is no mold in the home and there was no mold in this home. The water stain is gone and the carpet and furniture have been professionally cleaned. My cleaners are on notice that an incomplete vacumning cannot happen again. Please come and visit our model home, Ken

Nice home in a beautiful community!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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!

A great stay, planning a return trip!

  • 5 of 5

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.
