This 5 bedroom/3 bathroom (2 master suites) home has everything you could want. The home has one of the nicest pool areas of all Disney Vacation Homes,. It offers an oversized pool & hot tub with an expanded deck area backing up to a lake with a direct southern exposure for maximum sunlight. The home is furnished with everything you will need for your vacation. There are even outdoor speakers in the pool area and you can plug your phone directly into the stereo and listen to your favorite music while enjoying the pool or sunbathing. The house also has high speed wired and wireless internet access at the house!!
This home has just undergone a major remodel where the entire home was retiled with new floor tile. All of the cabinets in the kitchens and bathrooms were replaced as well as the countertops which were replaced with granite or solid surface countertops. The entire home was repainted and new baseboards were installed throughout the home. A lot of the furniture and decorations were replaced or updated and all new window coverings were installed throughout the home.
This home is located in Lake Berkley Resort the premier short term rental community in the Disney Area. It is very conveniently located close to everything yet when you walk around the neighborhood you would think you are in the middle of nowhere. Besides all the amenities offered at my home the neighborhood offers a private gated and 24 hour guarded entrance, lake with sandy beach area, beach volleyball, tennis court, basketball court, golf driving nets, community pool, clubhouse, work out facility (with treadmill, stair climber, stationary bike and nautilus equipment, children’s play area, fishing pier, etc., etc. You couldn't ask for anything more!!
BONUS - Pool is heated to 85 degrees and Hot Tub is set to heat to 100+ and can be used even when pool pump is not running. Many people offer Jacuzzi that is only heated to pool temp and many who do heat beyond pool temp only can heat during the day while pool is being heated. My hot tub/Jacuzzi can be heated to 100+ late into the evening. Don't be disappointed with others claiming a Jacuzzi! Also Pool and Hot Tub Heating is included in weekly rate!! No extra $100 to $200 for this feature. What good is having a Hot Tub or pool if you can not use! Also cleaning fee is included in weekly rate and the only extra you will pay is the tax!

My name is Matt Kelsch and I live in Carmel, Indiana which is just North of Indianapolis.
Matt Kelsch purchased this house in 2000
When I bought my home 10 years ago my 3 kids were 7, 5 and 3 and owning a home so close to Disney World seemed like a great idea. Once my family stayed in a home rather than a hotel, I was sure we would never go back to a hotel and we love being able to enjoy the comforts of a home and private pool as opposed to cramming into a small hotel room.
Our home is truly in the nicest neighborhood close to Disney. I have been to many and nothing compares. This fact along with my South facing pool and Hot Tub overlooking the lake make our home a great choice for a relaxing vacation.
Property was nice and we'll maintained! Outside of the security cameras, which we covered at the pool area and the annoying alarm when going in and out of the doors of the pool area, everything else was amazing and didn't disappoint! I'd definitely recommend and stay at this property again!
We - a Dutch couple - rented the vacation home for a week. A spacious home for 2 persons in a gated quiet community. Close to major attractions like Disney. Swimming pool facing South, especially advantageous in late fall and early spring. Supermarket around the corner. Home well equipped and well maintained. Would not mind to return some day. Home owner book contains a lot of useful tips for shopping and major attractions.
Thanks for a great place to host the kids and grandkids Thanksgiving week! Only 20-minutes to and from the WDW Theme Parks and wonderful home away-from-home accommodations for the seven of us (could have easily handled a few more). Plenty of room, plenty of privacy and super-fast response from Matt/Alex to our one and only issue (hot-tub heater). Updated furnishings and decor and plenty of capacity in all of the appliances. The large dining room was a real plus!
Only Negatives were:
Do not like the fact that the Pool area is under constant surveillance - The cameras also are angled to see into the living space. Did not feel comfortable being "monitored" while in the pool......I understand that this is for owner protection, but.....( Is there a privacy law for renters???? ) There should have been some Signage/ Posting acknowledging that "YOU ARE UNDER SURVEILIANCE"
Grill is rusted out and unusable.
Arrived late, the previous renter/Cleaning company did not leave any cleaning utensils/supplies as stated on web site.
Within 15 minutes of Disney and 2-3 minutes from Grocery Store and an extremely crowded Wal-Mart.
I would recommend this property - maybe cover the cameras with a piece of paper..............................
My family had a wonderful vacation in Matt's home. He was very patient with me prior to our arrival because I had many questions about the accessibility of electric wheelchairs throughout his house, baby cribs and lots of other questions. He answered them all quickly which gave me a good feeling about renting prior to our arrival. Once we arrived, not a problem to be had, just lots of fun - no need to contact Matt. And as a bonus, there's a Wal-Mart within a mile of the house and it just so happens that has been my FAVORITE Wal-Mart for years and when I found that out I was thrilled!
A wonderful house and stay - if we vacation in the Orlando area again, I will definitely contact Matt. Thanks!
The house was perfect for our family of 11 with 7 adults & 4 kids. It even had a Pack N Play & high chair for the baby. The pool was a giant hit with everyone after a hot day at the Disney parks & anytime. We had some issues with the WiFi going out & the pool filter not working, but these were corrected after contacting someone to fix it. We would recommend this home anytime.
