Couple from Ongar, United Kingdom August 2019

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.

Excellent villa with everything you will ever need. The setting was wonderful with a lake to the rear and all the privacy a family would ever need. Strongly recommend this villa to any family who wants a relaxing holiday in Florida with beaches near to hand.

A great house with all the amenities you could wish for. Layout is perfect to separate parents from their teenagers. The pool overlooking the canal, the hues of the sky at sunset, the birds singing at dawn, the alligator (a mini one but still!) spotted amongst the leaves in the water, the extreme quietness of the neighbourhood made our holiday a happy one. Great beaches to explore nearby. And a good starting point for further exploration. Friendly locals overall. Southwest Florida at its best!

Couple from Bradford, United Kingdom April 2019

Wow Wow Wow. What a beautiful property this is. It is very well equipped and the owners have thought of everything to make their guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. It is well cared for and it is obviously a loved home from home for the owners. It is very well furnished. There was only the two of us the villa and we used the master bedroom. It was a massive. A patio door led out to the pool area. There was plenty of room, a large closet, and a large unit that housed the television. This unit had small cupboards and some small drawers. It would have been nice to have more drawer space, possibly a small chest of drawers in the closet out of the way. Unfortunately I take too much stuff with me. I still haven’t learned after all these years of travelling. The kitchen was well equipped, and I soon got used to the oven. I use a fan assisted one at home. The washer and drier were in the garage. The owner gives permission to use items from the garage. What a selection. We used beach chairs and a beach umbrella when at the beach. Beach towels were also provided. When at “home” we never used the lounge area. We were always outside on the sundeck. A beautiful place to relax, have breakfast and drinks. We loved watching the wildlife from the sundeck and Dock. We were very lucky to see to name a few, the odd Alligator, Heron, Egrets, a Turtle and an Anhinga Bird he/she used to come to the dock and spread its wings to dry. Two Wood Peckers came one day they decided to tackle the house. What a noise. Fortunately there was no damage. We loved watching the Purple Martins looking after their babies. Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to see them fledge. We had left by then. What a beautiful wildlife haven. We paid for pool heating prior to our visit. It was not on when we arrived. A quick call to the manager it was soon put on. Pool towels were also provided. I choose this villa because I wanted to see a different area in Florida, and it doesn’t disappoint. I wanted to go walking in the Myakka State River Park, although it was further away than I realised it was worth the drive. Also The Myakka State Forest which was a lot nearer. We also went walking in Jelks Preserve. During our stay we visited three beaches. Gasparilla Island, Stump Pass Beach which we called at on our way back from Venice, and Englewood beach where we were lucky enough to see a Manatee swimming in the sea close to the shoreline. What a wonderful experience that was. I also collected fossilised sharks teeth. Apparently they are over 2 million years old. My grandson loved them. For those who want to shop there is a great shopping mall in Port Charlotte. Port Charlotte Town Centre , on the Tamiami Trail. The owner’s description of the villa and surrounding area is spot on. This is a private home and is clearly loved by the owners. It was excellent value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to couples and families alike. Thank you to Mike and family for allowing us to stay in your fabulous home. Kindest regards.

Music and family fun in Florida with Villa Owner Ray

Music and family fun in Florida with Villa Owner Ray

Music fans around the world have spent decades watching American musicians become the backbone to modern-day life, from the rock and roll of Elvis to the smooth sounds of the Supremes. However, one fan found himself so taken by the American music scene he decided to purchase a second property in the USA. “It was actually my daughter who talked me into it,” laughs Property Owner Ray Moore. “I was just going to buy another property in Aberdeen, but she made the point that if I bought property in Florida we could go on holiday, and I’ve always been a fan of America. So, everything seemed to fall into place.”

Clearwater, Florida: A Holiday Destination That Does It All

Clearwater, Florida: A Holiday Destination That Does It All

We've got to give Clearwater some credit, as this Florida hotspot is definitely a destination that does both. Beyond the sensational see-through seas, suntans and soft sands, you'll find a lively city, with a vibrant buzz that beats a lack of sea breeze. We can't sing the city's praises highly enough, but here is our whittled down list on why you should make Clearwater your next vacay.
