We’ve just returned after a two week stay at Herons rest. The villa is well equipped and very spacious and comfortable. The only downside was the pool... it wasn’t cleaned whilst we were there and there appeared to be amould/moss type of substance in the pool. Apart from that, it was a wonderful stay.

Hi, I am English, my wife American. We live in the UK, married for over 35 years we have two grown up daughters. We visit family in Florida regularly and now own our own piece of it in Rotonda. I jog and cycle to keep fit, my wife shops! We just love it here, not just the sun, but the whole area is unique, unspoiled and special. It is more 'old time' Florida, not commercialized or touristy. You will have the most relaxing, "get away from it all", time here! We have a local management company, run by an English family who look after the villa and will look after you while you stay here.
