A very plesant week long stay

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed house located 25 minutes between shopping, restaurants and 2 gulf beaches. We really enjoyed the pool with the spa end on those hot August afternoons. We caught our share of fish in the canal right off the sea wall in the quiet residential neighborhood.

Wonderful house for April Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to get away from the cold Northeast and rented this lovely house in April. We loved every minute of it. The house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The heated pool in the screen enclosed patio was especially nice. Being able to open the sliding doors to the patio and not have to worry about bugs really opened up the living area. We had a chance to meet the owner, and he was very friendly and helpful with tips on what to see in the area. The Blue Heron management company was easy to deal with also. If we ever vacation in the area again, we would not hesitate to rent this house again.

Nice comfortable house on a beautiful canal

  • 4 of 5

First of all, I would like to say that the owners and property management for this house are excellent! We had a few issues and they were taken care of immediately! The issues were small things like no hangers, no bikes, no beach chairs (these items were said to be included in the listing), and a mildewy shower. When we e-mailed them about these issues, they brought out new hangers and brand new bikes and beach chairs! They also sent someone right out the next day to clean the shower. Excellent service! Besides the shower, the house was very clean!

This home is in a very quiet neighborhood on a quiet canal. We only saw 2 boats pass by the whole time we were there. We didn't see any wildlife in or around the water, although the neighbor's fake ducks did fool me! The pool area is fantastic with a beautiful view of the canal. The pool itself looked very nice, but the weather was not warm enough in January for us to use it. We did enjoy sitting outside in the many provided seating areas by the pool.

The home is about 22 minutes away from the nearest town (Port Charlotte). So, it is more remote than we had expected. It is also about 25 minutes from Boca Grande (go there- it's beautiful!).

The mattress in the master bedroom was king sized and very comfortable. The pillows were nice as well. We did find that we got very hot at night, no matter how cool it was in the room. It wasn't until I stripped the bed when we left that I realized there is a plastic cover over the entire mattress. We feel this is what made the bed so very hot. Be aware that there are just enough pillows for each bed (6). There were only 2 of us, so we just used pillows from the other bedrooms.

There were a few odd things that weren't provided- alarm clocks and a phone. So, be sure you bring your own method of waking up if you need to get to the airport on time. You are not able to park in the garage, as with most vacation rentals. There is no door alarm or safety net for the pool area. So, this wouldn't be a good choice for young children. There are no curtains on the sliding door in the living area, so no privacy.

The homeowner included lots of cleaning supplies and trash bags. This was a nice change as most rental houses do not provide these things. We thought it was nice so we were able to clean up after ourselves!

We have rented around 20 vacation rentals in Florida over the years and the service we received at this one was the best!
