WONDERFUL RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been making annual trips to the Keys for over 10 years. Each year we stay in a different location, but we have found a keeper with this rental. Michelle was a pleasure to work with from day 1. The rental is a beautiful estate. We especially loved everyone having their own bedrooms and bathrooms. My children (ages 3 & 7) enjoyed petting the key deer every morning and every evening. The pool was a huge hit and the biggest of any rental we've been in so far. The house was very clean and I was extremely impressed with the amenities that the house was stocked with. My family and I will be back next year!!! Thanks for everything Michelle!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AT THE BLUE HERON ESTATE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Blue Heron was absolutely wonderful. We had families from Chicago and Oregon, with people from ages 12 to 54 teens/20's/30's/40's and 50's, and we had an amazing time. The house was everything we thought it would be from VRBO and so much more! The house is beautiful and spacious and super clean. 5 bathrooms was wonderful. The estate with the key deer eating out of our hands and geckos and more. The large built in pool was a hit, the kids and adults were in it 5-7 hours everyday. The views and the privacy of the 15 acres was enjoyed by all. We had some amazing games of volleyball too. We used the kayaks and went fishing. The house offers privacy for each room because every room has its own bathroom. The owners of Blue Heron are top notch and so professional... something that we had not experienced from renting from Schmitt realities in the Keys in the past. Michelle was quick and courteous in any questions we had. The location is a 10, the house was so comfortable for all our needs and we will definitely be back. The house is furnished very well and so clean (something that means a lot to us) It is decorated with beautiful and comfortable furnishings. We did many activities (swam with the dolphins, snorkeled, went to the Everglades, went to John Pennekamp state park, visited the Turtle Hospital and Key West many times, and played volleyball on the private court quite a bit too!) We love the location in Big Pine because it allows you to go north (east) or head West/South to key West, it is in a great location. Thank you for sharing your home with us, I would recommend staying here to anyone I know, and we will definitely be back. Thank you for giving us a great place to create great memories! It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas and New Years with our family and friends.

MAGICAL WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
After a rocky start with miscommunication on both sides during booking, I was nervous about renting. Fortunately my family was so excited about this rental that I went through with it. The land is as spacious as the house which was very well kept and designed. The master bedroom is right next to the Kitchen- Dining - Living Room area. The other three bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, are on the other side. The pool is not as big as it looked in the pictures, but it was a refreshing escape from the heat!
The kayaks were used several times to explore the little islands and to look for Iguanas and Key Deer. Every time I looked at the volleyball court, I wished my team were staying here as well. Only thing missing at the house was books. I always carry too many with me on vacations (I got stopped at security on the way back), but I always enjoy perusing other house's book collections.
The house is 30 minutes from Key West, so we made a few trips into town. I always love going to the Key West Butterfly Conservatory, and I treated myself to Nailtini on Duval St. I got a Mani-Pedi and 3 Mimosas! We had dinner at Azur, and it was amazing (Lavender Crème Brule was the best).
More Locally, we had a nice dinner and game of mini-golf at Boondocks. We also ate several times at Springer's.
Thanks for a great family vacation!

BEST VACATION RENTAL EVER!

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Heron is an incredible place to go for vacation. The house has everything you need available. The whole property is gorgeous. The kids enjoyed this vacation whether it was that they were running around in the property, playing basketball, volleyball, in the pool or just watching the deer all around the property. We will definitely be renting this home again.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Heron is a beautiful home. This was our 8th visit to the keys, and The Blue Heron will be at the top of our list as one of our favorite places we've stayed. We will be renting it again in the future. The house is well equipped, and the bedrooms, each with a private bath was perfect. Enjoying the deer was nice too. Kayaking was fun, and our son appreciated the basketball hoop. Sand volleyball court is a nice adder too for large groups. I would highly recommend this property. It's a private place too, which is nice. The owners were great to work with. We may even check out their other property in the future as well.

A PERFECT WINTER GET-AWAY...!!

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Heron is a very special vacation retreat..!! The high ceilings, spacious rooms, extensive porch and large windows effectively erase the line between inside and out. But, at the flick of a switch, air conditioning offers complete comfort as needed. The sunrises looking back over the Seven Mile Bridge toward Marathon are breath-taking. The house is comfortably furnished as shown in the pictures above. It has a very well equipped kitchen and enough bed/bathrooms to accommodate even a large extended family. Active families will appreciate thoughtful additions by their hosts such as kayaks, basketball, and volleyball. Children and adults alike will enjoy watching the local herd of deer grazing on the lawn. The pool is safe for even young children surrounded as it is by railings and gates. The nearby Winn Dixie grocery makes shopping quick and easy, but when you don’t feel like cooking, local restaurants are at hand. The almost total absence of mosquitoes during our stay was a welcome change from other places we’ve stayed. I can recommend this home without reservation.
