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 Lake Berkley

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.

It was almost perfect

My family really enjoyed the pool and the quiet neighborhood, had it not been for the beds that need urgent replacement, our stay would have been 100%

Owner's Response: I'm glad Rafael and his family had a good stay and enjoyed the private pool and peace and quiet in our gated community. The master and full bedroom mattresses he references are being replaced next week, 8/15/2018.

Owner's Response: I had a long, friendly conversation with Helena the day before their arrival confirming their early, noon check in. I did not hear again from her until I read this review and she responded to my email. She had my email and phone number and never contacted me directly about this. The home has never had a mouse! The guest before her, Miguel, and after her, Rafael, did not mention mice, read their Reviews. They had a good experience and enjoyed their stay. The house cleaner and her supervisor did not find anything. The first night the home was unoccupied, five baited mouse traps were left there and nothing was found. I will be there with my family next month. The house had a deep clean looking for anything. The only possible thing that I can rationalize is the small, never used storage compartment under the seat of the kitchen bench had some food crumbs that may have been mistaken for mouse droppings. I apologized to Helena for her upset but the house never had a mouse, NEVER! When an owner gets a bad review like this, there is nothing to do but try to explain. Mice are not an issue in Florida. Lizards, frogs, bugs and even alligators, but not mice. The home is and has always been mouse free. We stay there often and will be there next month. I invite you to stay in this unique home. Ken, owner

Nice ,clean house

  • 5 of 5

House is nice and clean but needs updating.mattress in both of the two out of three bedrooms very uncomfortable.light bulbs needed to be replaced in master closet and outside porch by pool.Frig needs to be replaced or adjusted as things placed in frig tended to freeze even on lowest setting.Dinnerware (pots)also need an update many are all scratched up.could use a paint job also.But overall house was in a nice gated community but occasionally the wait to get back in after a day out took a long time sometimes with line stretching down the road.Guards pleasant to deal with,overall a very nice place.

Needs attention

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival Friday evening the basics were clean but after getting more settled into the house we found stuff. When we flipped the sheets back in the master bedroom hair was found on the sheets. The bathroom wasn’t clean just appeared to be wiped down. The toilet and shower were dirty. The room with the twin beds clearly doesn’t get much attention when we looked behind beds to charge phones we found old socks, crayons, hair bows just Miscellaneous items that commonly fall behind beds. The towels for the home were old towels, we had to go out to Walmart to buy more. The owner said the home would have toilet tissue one roll each bathroom but only one bathroom had a half of roll. There were tiny black bugs in different areas of the home. We checked in Friday and I emailed the owner Saturday morning, it’s now Monday and I have checked out still no response. I use HomeAway a lot and this is my worst experience.

Owner's Response: I am sorry the guests had a less than perfect experience and apologized to them. The home has been cleaned for the past six years by one of two cleaners who take pride in their work. Apparently, for this clean neither were available and a fill-in was used. I have requested this not happen again. They stated they tried to reach me, they had my email and cell phone number, THERE WAS NO RECORD THAT THEY TRIED TO REACH ME. Towels and wash cloths have a short life in rental properties and the home is now fully replenished. They mentioned seeing a few insects. I had the exterminator make a special, early visit and there was only a few routine Florida insects. The home was thoroughly sprayed. Not an issue. Finally, this is a unique home in an upscale gated community, in an ideal location with a private pool. We stay at the home as well as our family and friends. You will not be disappointed. Ken Khuans
