Overview

Lake Berkley House Rental Photos and Description

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 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!

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.

Beautiful Property - Well maintained - Great location - Owners responded quickly - July 2016

  • 4 of 5

98% Positive

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..............................

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a response and I truly am sorry about the grill, which has now been replaced. As for the security cameras, I completely understand your concerns and that is why the documents that I send to all guests clearly state there are cameras on the outside of the home and I recommend guests cover the cameras in the pool area with a washcloth and rubberband (which are provided) if they have any concerns. I am glad you enjoyed your stay overall! Matt

Where Dreams Come True

  • 5 of 5

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!

Very Accommodating

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful and relaxing. Loved the area

  • 5 of 5

This property was better than the description, Matt Kelsh was great with letting us pay payments early and kept in touch. The rental was decorated beautiful. The younger adults loved it so much they skipped extra days at universal studios just to stay in the pool and hot tub. The only complaint was the thermostat control keep it a little to warm since it stayed around 75 degrees most of the time but it was tolerable you just had to keep adjusting it to 73 and it would cool down. Some of the mattresses were uncomfortable especially the two singles but it may have been due to putting them together to make a double. The master bedroom was great with a big tub and large shower. All in all I will keep this rental on file and have been recommending it to everyone. THANKS MATT FOR A GREAT FAMILY VACATION.

My daughter and her family stayed there and had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The family's first Disney trip with my two grandsons were fantastic. The home was spacious, modern, clean and convenient to amenities. They used the pool every night, and in fact, they said it was the best part of the vacation despite everything else Florida had to offer. Highly recommend this home.

Exellent Property!

We stayed in the home from 7-14 May 16. It's a beautiful home in a very secure community. The heated pool and hot tub are awesome. We'll definitely return again.
