Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Barbara and Gary are great people! They made sure we felt right at home! The house was located in a perfect location for us. The Kayaks and heated pool were mega pluses for me! I would definitely recommend staying at this property!

Amazing!!! Must stay!

  • 5 of 5

At the last minute I had booked another vrbo and she informed me that another couple had booked at the same time so mines was kicked out. I then found Barbra and her husband and they were able to get the house ready in 24 hours for me and my party of four to stay for a wedding. Pictures don't do the home justice it's clean, and in great quiet area. We stayed for a week and a few days we stayed in because we had everything right at the home such as the pool and the dock. My fiancé loves to fish so he spend a lot of time on the lake. I would highly recommend and we will definitely stay again. We have already referred a few of our friends to stay. I read reviews before staying anywhere and I had to write an amazing review for them.

Enchanted Lake Front

  • 5 of 5

My hubby, mom and I stayed for a month at this wonderful bungalow property on Enchanted Lake in Feb 2017. It is quite centrally located in Aventura and is a 2 bedroom plus a den (fold down couch), 2 full bath home all comfortably situated on a quiet street. The back of the property is fenced in and there is a dock at the lake and two hard bodied kayaks, paddles and life jackets available for guests to use. It is a big lake that connects with canals and eventually to the Intercoastal waterway if you are adventuresome! Our Yorkshire terrier loved romping in the yard and watching all of the local birds.

The owners, Gary and Barb, make you comfortable right away and are easily reached if you need something. They have thoughtfully left a notebook with directions to some really nice restaurants in the area and Barb sent me several emails of things going on in the area during our stay.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need during your stay although i mentioned to the owners that more cutlery would be nice (however this was not a issue for me as I travel with my own). All the dishware you could want are there as well as bowls, salad bowls, and even baking utensils - new cake and muffin tins as well as measuring cups -were plentiful (a nice touch we have not found in other rentals).

Both beds are comfortable with nice linens. The owners supplied HUGE towels for use around the pool and as the picture shows there are ample table and chairs available for use by guests. The pool is of course wonderful!

We truly enjoyed our time here and would never hesitate to return when in Miami!

  • 4 of 5

The view to the lake is very refreshing and relaxing, in general the house is very comfortable and fully equipped for anyone vacationing in Florida. Barbara and Gary are excellent to deal with, we would go back and recommend their home to anyone.

.in general the house is great, but could use some updating to make it perfect...

Beautiful home, nice neighborhood, and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Barbara and Gary were very helpful with anything we needed. We spent four nights in a quiet neighborhood on a beautiful lake. The house is very conveniently located from shopping areas and relatively close to the freeway. The house is very modern, well furnished, and well decorated. The pool was warm and the lake-side deck was breathtaking. Would return in a heartbeat.

Thank you both!
