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!

Beautifully presented and well thought out!

  • 5 of 5

A newly built property right on one of the canals. Beautifully presented and very stylish - and Florida in general lacks in style! The owners have thought of everything and it is well equipped - the garage was very exciting! There are beach chairs, fishing rods, a trolly to take everything to the beach, cooler boxes, beach umbrellas....etc etc. Very impressive!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home! Loved the interior (spacious, light and modern, quiet air conditioning, well equipped, especially the kitchen) as well as the exterior (awesome pool long enough to really swim in, great view of the mangroves). There's a fishing pole in the garage (als well as beach chairs, umbrella etc.) you can use for fishing from the boat deck. Too bad, there are so many tiny mosquitos outside, sometimes already in the afternoon. But that didn't keep us from using the hot jacuzzi at night, just keep the wohle of your body in the water. It's just a 10 minutes walk to the beach and there's a well equipped supermarket at the beginning of the street. Will definitely recommend this vacation home to Family and Friends!

Our contact person and rental specialist Kathleen was very helpful and also answered her phone whenever we called. Thank you for that!
