Guestbook comments from the manager

Wir haben hier 10 Nächte mit Familie (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder) verbracht, das Haus ist komplett und wirklich toll eingerichtet, sehr gepflegt auch Garten und Poolbereich. DIe Betreuung vor Ort war nett und hat sich gekümmert. Wir hatten sehr nette Nachbarn, insofern war das Teilen des Pools und Gartens auch sehr angenehm (darauf hat natürlich niemand Einfluss). Bei der Beschreibung der Häuser muss man wissen, dass man natürlich nur auf die Dinge zugriff hat, welche zur jeweiligen Wohneinheit gehören, BlueHeron 1 hat z.b. kein Paddelboot etc. dies gehört zu Blue Heron 2! Zudem ist der Bootsanleger inzwischen mit einem Bootslift ausgestattet, welchen man allerdings nicht nutzen darf. Jedoch ist ausreichend Platz vorhanden, ein Boot dahinter oder daneben "anzuleinen". Uns hat es supergut gefallen und wir planen eines der Häuser im nächsten Jahr erneut zu besuchen - hoffe es bleibt alles so schön.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this home! We were traveling from Indiana with our 2 year old daughter and so we had packed up her pack and play and high chair to bring with us, to find out that they had those exact things there for us already. The home was beautiful and very clean. We loved the location and really enjoyed the pool. We also loved how "child proof" the house was by having the door locks up high where kids couldn't reach them to get out by themselves. We were very pleased with our stay and will be back!

Villa Blue Heron, Ft. Myers Beach, FL

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this rental - it was very well maintained, great location for walking to beach, shopping, groceries and main square. All staff and rental contacts were easy and efficient to communicate with. Only one concern - Re: extra hydro usage charge - not really sure how this figure is accurately calculated when the home is being used by two separate tenants using the same pool and hot tub. Try negotiating a waiver for this if possible.

Would definitely recommend this rental.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Blue Heron 1 and really enjoyed our stay. The property was very clean and organized. It was also very well equipped. We really liked the floor plan and the decorating. The unit was very bright and sunny with a lovely view.The location was nice to the beach and restaurants.

We loved, loved the pool and hot tub. One suggestion would be to add a few stepping stones between the pool area and the dock so one doesn't have to step on the seashells.

A small table for eating would be another suggestion for outside.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Great vacation home!

Very nice. Was stocked with everything we needed including beach chairs and a beach wagon. Was about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Loved the pool and hot tub. Will be coming back next year.
