This was our third stay at Herons Rest, and I’m sure not the last. We love the area and the villa is large and comfortable.
Second stay at Herons Rest which says it all really- a lovely house-all equipment in garage to support family activities,from a day at the beach, tennis in the local park, going golfing/cycling or fishing from the dock at the rear of the house or fishing from the beach/pier.
My myself and my family love staying at this house and love the area-local activities and uncrowded beaches.
No hesitation in recommending renting this home to anyone and Mike the owner is great to deal with reference to questions you have.
We stayed in this villa 4 years ago and found it to be just as good. We like the dual aspect lounge and the views from all rooms except 3rd bedroom and bathrooms , obviously. Plenty of wildlife to view from the patio area. The area is very quiet and you will definately need a car. Two cranes and their baby visited us on the last morning providing photo opportunity before they slowly moved off down the street.
This is the most delightful elegant beautiful villa we have ever stayed at. It is as well equipped as a normal home and has a really cozy homely feel. The neighbours and locals are really friendly and the villa is in a great location with great golf courses tennis courts(though very busy)bike ride trails and paths for jogging or lovely evening strolls. Great pool and outside space with beautiful views where you can sit out and relax and watch the sun go down. The fishing deck at the bottom of the garden is a really nice finishing touch. The perfect place for spotting wildlife. We saw gators stalks eagles herons armadillo racoons bobcats and loads of turtles and more. Amazing. If you are going out make sure you remember the insect repellant!!! This has been our most amazing holiday in the most beautiful villa we have ever stayed at. Constructive criticism is always useful for these reviews but for the first time ever I really dont have anything that isnt positive to say about this place. If this villa is on your shortlist then it really should be the one to choose. It will totally exceed your expectations just like it did ours. Thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful home.
This property was excellent, the owner obviously put a lot of thought into the floorplan. The pool and views were visible from the two main bedrooms, the living, dining rooms and the kitchen!
The nesting box was in use by the swallow type birds and we re filled the bird feeders to keep the other birds coming back. Saw a couple of gators in the canal, along with the various other herons, even a Wood Stork. My husband caught a large gar fish on a small piece of steak!
This was the best house we have EVER rented in Florida (or France & UK for that matter).
The area is very quiet and it forces you to relax, definately did not want to leave. Hope to be able to re- book some time in the future.

Private Owner From Woking, United Kingdom Member since Mar 2008
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.
