“This villa is the definition of perfect!”
Reviewed February 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Our winter break at Heron’s Way Villa far exceeded our expectations.

The villa is a real home from home, beautifully presented and immaculately clean - it had everything we needed and more. Sitting outside by the pool for breakfast every morning was wonderful and so so peaceful. The kids loved the pool and on the occasions when we did manage to drag them away from it we enjoyed walks at the local beaches and looking for shells and sharks’ teeth.

A highlight of our trip had to be the boat ride home after dinner at the Rum Bay restaurant on Palm Island - two dolphins chased us home - a magical experience!

We will definitely be back!

“Idyllic”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Completely loved staying at this villa and the owners were so helpful with recommendations of activities and local restaurants too. It is an exceptionally comfortable home with everything you'll need including kitchen cupboards with herbs and basic food items, travel guides, a great library of DVDs and importantly a lovely pool which isn't overlooked and a good size for swimming. The location is great, quiet and near to beautiful beaches where we found sharks teeth and kayaked with manatees. It was perfect on stormy days to relax in, spotlessly clean with comfy sofas and dining areas inside and out. We explored a little further (Owens Fish Camp in Sarasota was amazing for dinner and live music after shopping spree at Ellenton Outlet Mall) and enjoyed a baseball game locally at Port Charlotte to see the Stone Crabs in action. Highly recommend this villa to everyone (we are a family of 5 with kids 9,12,15) and will be sure to rebook when we have the chance to return to Florida!

Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Owens Fish Camp looks really great. A new one for us to try next time. There are always so many good places to eat in Florida.

“Beautiful villa, fantastic location, fabulous holiday!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My family have stayed here several times now yet this villa continues to exceed our expectations and is always even better than we remember it! It has the wow factor as soon as you walk in the door - it's immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and the view through to the pool makes me want to jump right in! We ate every meal outside making the most of the peaceful location and lovely views of the canal, the wildlife and some spectacular sunsets. We spent most of our time in the pool (given a choice I don't think my kids would have ever left it!) which was beautifully warm and the perfect place to relax and unwind. When we did drag ourselves away we really enjoyed the great local beaches and sampling the local restaurants. I highly recommend this villa, in fact on the flight home we were already discussing when we would go back!!

“Absolutely perfect and wonderfully relaxing”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The home was even better than it looked in the fabulous pictures. It was bright, cheery and welcoming. Extra care had clearly been taken to ensure a comfortable stay, from the extremely helpful information folder to the extra fluffy soft white bathroom towels. The home was spotlessly clean, and the pool too, was sparkling. The beds were very comfortable. The owners had thought of everything, including small details such as safety plugs on all unused electrical outlets.
