About Richard and Karen

We love spending time at our Heron House when it isn't being enjoyed by our guests. We named it Heron House because of the herons we've seen flying up the canal, nesting right across the canal and the herons on the front entry doors. Since Heron House is an easy drive from our home base, we visit Cape Coral as often as possible to be sure that everything is maintained as we would want if we were living here full time.

The rest of our time is spent with sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren in Salinas, CA or Lafayette, OR or Seguin, TX or cruising to anywhere. But, of all places, we like being in Cape Coral the best. There is so much to do, the people are so friendly, and you can't beat the weather!

Richard and Karen purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard and Karen chose Cape Coral

There are hundreds of activities and locations to enjoy within a drive of less than 30 minutes. From fantastic beaches to spring training baseball games, from swanky five diamond restaurants to hole-in-the-wall eateries, from ritzy department stores to one of the world's largest flea markets you can find more than enough to keep you busy. For longer day trips, you can easily spend the day in Fort Lauderdale or Miami and be back to the Heron House for dinner on the lanai pool-side.

We bought the Heron House because we fell in love with the Cape Coral environs and when we finally saw the house with the great herons on the entryway doors we knew immediately it was the right place for us. We know you'll feel the same when you walk through the front doors!

What makes this house unique

Relax and enjoy the quiet neighborhood and the calm, soothing tropical gardens surrounding our canal-side property, lounging in the hot tub or the screened pool, listening to the pool's waterfall. The bikes in the garage can be used to travel the flat, little trafficked neighborhood streets or to ride on sidewalks and bike paths to the nearby Publix grocery and Target department store. When the weather isn't cooperating, take advantage of the more than 80 channels on the cable TV or choose from the more than 100 movies in our video collection or just lay around and listen to the 46 music channels on cable and read a good book from our small library.

A beautiful and comfortable house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family of four greatly enjoyed the comfort, space and facilities at Heron house. Everything met our expectations and what had been advertised through the website. Lots of restaurants and shopping centres nearby. For us it was a perfect place to relax and unwind after an intense week in Orlando. Thanks for letting us stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. We're glad you had a great stay. There are a lot of things to do in the Cape Coral area but not quite of the intensity of Orlando and our Heron House is perfect for relaxing. We hope you'll come back soon.

Perfect for our stay !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for two weeks. We were thrilled with the accomodations. We had an issue with the a/c fan and the owners were so fast in responding to get things back right ! The beds are super comfortable and the open living / kitchen area is so great for a family retreat. The outside lanai and pool area are amazing. The canal views and sunsets are amazing! We would recommend this home to anyone !

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize about the AC problem. The issue came as a big surprise since the system is less than two years-old and we have it serviced every six months. We use a very reliable company, Best Home Services, who also installed the system. Their quick response times are one of the reasons we count on them. The new heating/AC system has a super fine filter system as well as multiple UV lights to keep the inside air as clean as possible. We chose the beds with great care knowing that our guests were likely to spend more time there than anywhere else during their stay. Glad you found them most comfortable. Please come back soon. We enjoyed your friendly, helpful attitude on one of the year's hottest days!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

All the members of my family would like to thank you for the opportunity we got to stay at your Cape Coral house.

We had a wonderful holiday. Your house had everything we needed for our stay. The house was particularly clean and the quality of your beds was outstanding. We appreciated this very much!

Communication prior, during and after stay was easy, swift and complete.

This is what you need if you want to have a problem-free holiday/vacation.

The Damage Guarantee Fee was also paid within 3 days after our stay.

Thank you very much Richard and Karen!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Heron House. We know the quality of the beds is important to our guest so we've furnished the house with the very best. With so much to do outside of the house in this part of Florida, we know that most time spent in the house will be on the comfortable beds resting up for the next day's adventures. Thanks for your comments on the cleanliness and like-new condition of the facilities. We'll pass on your comments to the people that help us maintain our high standards for housekeeping and maintenance.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in mid July and had a wonderful time:) The house is really nice, and we loved the poolarea. The house has everything you need - and more. There are a lot of toys for the pool, and everything you need for a day on the beach. The parasol is broken though, so it needs to be fixed or replaced. We didn't check it before we went to the beach, so we had a warm day.. :)

The house is located in a quiet area, just a few blocks from Publix and Target.

We spent our days in the pool, on the beach, at the Naples zoo and in Legoland.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week Richard and Karen, we would love to come back some day:)
