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 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 this is not charged by VRBO so you will be contacted by me to collect this before your reservation is finalized) 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.

Nice house but needs some good pest control
We were pleased as to how the house was clean (although the sheets need some bleach to get rid of some black stains) and the kids enjoyed the pool. But what we really strongly disliked is that the house is full of bugs. You can’t even leave a plate with food on the kitchen counter the bugs will be right there. Or as I was trying to cook and looked at the stove timer there was a bug sitting on that green time light every single time, so gross, so I couldn’t wait to leave this place. Also you can’t really control the AC it is managed remotely, video cameras with close up lenses at the back and front of the house. Other than that it’s a nice place in a quiet subdivision.
I appreciate your comments and I have had the management company get an exterminator to get the bug issue cleared up. This is unacceptable and is not normal and I apologize. The security cameras are there for your protection but as the paperwork says, please feel free to cover them with the supplied covers if you feel uncomfortable. And the thermostat does have user flexibility to be adjusted and the guest paperwork also says just contact me if you have any issues.
Most of all, I just want to apologize that your stay was not perfect!
My family had plenty of room, it was super convenient to all the parks and my grandchildren loved the pool and hot tub. The house itself is beautiful and it did have everything we needed during our stay! Would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful Safe Home
We loved the view of the lake behind the house and how large and nice the house was. But with a small child we liked the security the most. The guard almost didn't let us in, twice, and we loved it! I felt completely fine with my child playing in the front yard or at the playground in a very unfamiliar place.
The home owner is very responsive if you ever need anything. His maintenance staff is very friendly and can help with just about anything.
We will be highly recommending this property!
love the view in the area and the pool and the lake
Family loved it it was a beautiful home except when the hurricane came on Suday Monday no lights we had to leave early we had lights at home so we enjoyed ourself
Thank You !
Beautiful and convenient location!
We stayed here for Labor Day weekend. There were 6 adults, a baby and and 4 kids. It accommodated us very well. It was sparkling clean and very nicely furnished! The kids loved the pool and spent most of their time there. We would definitely rent it again.
House was lovely
The house was lovely. We had a question about the AC and it was answered immediately. We would stay at the property again!
