Our unit was located in Heron II of the Vacation Village at Bonaventure which seemed to be an older complex, however, upon entering the unit, we found it to be quite spacious. It was 2 - 1bedroom units, each with their own living, kitchen and bathroom, with a door opening between them to enter each unit. This was ideal for us as my mother was joining us and she was able to have her own space.
The pool for the Heron units is basic so we drove the short distance to the Vacation Village Weston complex and enjoyed the beautiful waterfall pool there which is much larger and nicer. Very crowded though with winter guests and difficult to find open lounge chairs.
This is a timeshare property and when registering they mentioned there were two "receptions" we could attend, which of course was a sales pitch for the timeshare, but since I made the reservation thru VRBO I told them I wasn't interested.
We found the location was perfect for where we were going to be visiting in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Close to highway access and to Sawgrass Mills shopping.
Eric Mason was very nice to work with on reserving this unit and was quick to reply and answer any questions I had.
