About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

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 recently 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 (there is a $100 cleaning fee for stays less than 7 nights) and the only extra you will pay is the 13.5% sales tax!

About Matt Kelsch

My name is Matt Kelsch and I live in Carmel, Indiana which is just North of Indianapolis.

Matt Kelsch purchased this house in 2000

Why Matt Kelsch chose Kissimmee

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

The house was great it had what we needed to enjoy our vacation. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. The pool was perfect for those days we decided not to venture out. The clubhouse, basketball court, sand volleyball and fishing ponds were all with in walking distance. It was perfect!

Lovely Florida house with many amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this lovely house for our spring vacation. The view looking out the back window can't be beat. The pool and hot tub were lovely. The location made it easy to get to many local attractions and the WalMart (which we visited frequently for odds and ends).

Another Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful Lake Berkley home last January so much, we returned this year for another two week stay to escape the cold Illinois winter. We had a marvelous time once again and enjoyed the warm weather and the relaxing setting. Once again, Matt was a pleasure to work with as we made our plans.

As noted in the review we posted last January, one of the best features of this home is the south-facing location that allows visitors to soak in the sun from sunrise to sunset. The view over the lake is tranquil and relaxing, and we were again treated to an amazing display of birds and other wildlife including deer. The house is well-equipped for almost any meal preparation, and the owner has provided a number of guide books and brochures to help visitors make the most of their stay in Kissimmee and the nearby Disney properties.

For those visitors who seek a respite from the busy Disney parks, we recommend a trip to nearby Shingle Creek Regional Park. It is a short five minute drive from the house, and you are quickly immersed in a beautiful nature preserve with many hiking trails and fishing spots. Kayak and canoe rentals are available for those who want to explore the park by water. The best part is that admission to the regional park is free!

Lake Berkley is a well-maintained and secure community, and this home is large enough to accommodate families and couples who are looking for a vacation stay that is near to all of the Disney properties and other attractions in Central Florida. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we are already looking forward to returning next year!
