We list in the villa manual, over 20 great restaurants, there are also, all kinds of take-outs, but why not cook your catch of the day on the villa BBQ/Gas Grill and have a drink in the Spa or sitting by the water on the Dock.
We also provide FOC a full range of Fishing Rods and equipment. You just need to buy Bait.
The Property is located in one of the remaining unspoilt areas of Florida, it is very peacful but only 10 mins from Supermarket and 15 mins from large shopping mall, also within easy reach of beaches and restaurants.
Communication with the owner, leading to our vacations was very prompt and very helpful. The villa provided everything we could possibly require during our stay.
The only negative comment, if I have one is that it is not possible to use the telephone as the area codes are too restricted, also the tv progamming is restricted and we were not given the necessary code to unlock - however this did not in any way spoil our vacation.
Brian from UK
Not only is this a large, comfortable, superbly presented property, but it is professionally managed with courteous and helpful owners. The welcome pack was very welcome indeed after arriving from the UK.
It is well located in a fantastic area of Florida, whether you want to laze on a beach visit the offshore islands or compete with the 'gators from the boat dock for fish - great fun!
Thanks Barry. We'll certainly apply to return to this property if and when we visit again, if you'll have us, of course.
Valerie from Scotland
Luxurious accommodation in a peaceful setting.A drive away from good eateries.Chance to see florida native animals up close e.g. racoons,toads and gators.
Andrew from 8 Orchard Grove
This villa was absolutely fantastic - I couldn't recommend it more highly.
It is very large and comfortable and is in a good location for anyone with a car, being close to Gasparilla island and Englewood.
It's also on a canal which means you can watch the herons and alligators in safety from the dock!
There is lots of really useful information in the villa on local restaurants, beaches, sports, medical info etc. which is really useful.
The local agents are very friendly and helpful and gave us excellent recommendations on things to do and where to go.
The pool backs onto the 2 main bedrooms and it's great to get out of bed, open the bedroom doors and jump straight in the pool.
I went to villa Heron View in May 2005 in a party of 4 people on a golf holiday.
It's located in a great spot with easy access to the following championship golf courses which all cost around $20 including buggy hire
Palms etc. etc...
All of these courses would probably cost £65+ in the UK.

Hello Barry, We had a great time, you have a lovely place. The pool and spa temperatures were perfect, thank you. We saw a baby alligator off the back and a water snake which the children thought was great. Regards Louise Barnett

Just wanted to drop and line and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in Port Charlotte. The home was beautiful and just as described! The week we were there was unseasonably cool, so we were very grateful to be able to heat the pool and hot tub!
Thank you so much for everything, Bonnie Van Epps

I want to express our satisfaction during our stay in Florida; we were delighted by your home. The West coast of Florida is very beautiful and worth visiting.
Thank you. Astrid Reynouard

Just wanted to let you know we once again had an amazing time at your villa. We love your home and the area better than any other place or house we have rented in the past. We hope to be in touch soon to book again next year!
Thanks, Courtney Thornton
Thank you for returning our deposit. I also wanted to share what a wonderful time we had at the Villa. Our party included multiple generations and the home offered space to share as well as privacy. We visited the area beaches shown in the villa manual. As the weather was little cool, thankfully, we had the pool and the hot tub and thats where we spent the majority of our time. We appreciated you arranging the pool heat at the last minute it made a difference in our stay. We look forward to coming back another time. Thanks again, Ana Asilis 28/12/14 (email address withheld)
Thank you for the use of your lovely villa. Weve stayed in quite a number of different villas over the past 10 years and would rate your villa as one of the best. We had a holiday. Best Regards, Gordon & Eleanor. 21/08/14 (email address withheld)
Hi Barry, The villa was everything and more, we had a wonderful time at the villa and in the surrounding area of Port Charlotte as it is so nice.
Finding the villa was very easy from Tampa. The Golf courses where fantastic, even in better conditions than those in Orlando, and that takes some doing.
The villa was very comfortable and clean and the guys loved the pool and the dock, they were fishing every night after golf. We left the villa early so as to have a day in Clearwater before our flight home.
Many thanks again Barry we all had a great time.
Best regards, Terry Russell. P.G.A. 08/05/14 (email address withheld)
Hi Barry, just wanted to let you know that we very much enjoyed our stay at you house in Port Charlotte. The house was lovely and very comfortable. Although we did not see your alligator, we did catch a nice dinner of redfish and sheep’s head from the dock, and enjoyed being able to bring our boat to the dock through the canal system.
Thanks again Pat Nevius & family 6/02/14 (email address withheld)
Hi Barry, We had a wonderful time, I cannot say enough wonderful things about your villa and the area, and it was magnificent. We had a fantastic holiday there.
The villa is beautiful, my husband and I had the main master suite and it was amazing.
The bathroom was the biggest I’ve ever been in and we had a steady stream of visitors for a dip in the tub!
Your resident gator made a visit most days, we were thrilled to bits and got some fantastic pictures of it, think he enjoyed his rather nervous audience.
And thank you so much for the discount off our next booking, we will be back next year to use it!
If you would like to use anything I’ve said as a testimonial for your websites, please feel free. Once again, thank you. Liegh UK. 2014
Just a note to say thank you for the quick return of our security deposit.
May I take this opportunity, on behalf of our party, to thank you for allowing us to use your exceptional villa? We all agreed, it provided an excellent base, for what turned out to be one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had.
And thank you for your offer of the 10% returning guest discount, we hope to be able to take you up on that in the near future.
Regards, Peter Simmons UK. (10/05/13)

About the owner
Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa. Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small, that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean, safe, warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades.
When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this unspoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast, which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!
Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a sea eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot 'gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the real Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!
We currently live in Umbria Italy, were we are renovating a 415 year old ‘Noble manor house’ into an 8 en-suite bedroom holiday villa complex with pool, great views and lots of land. This will be in 3 apartments that can be rented separately or all together. We will be ready to take paying guests by September 2013, so if you fancy a trip to Italy and like the way we do things, let us know!
