About Shawn or Amanda

We stayed at the Heron House on a vacation visit to Cape Coral and fell in love with the layout, the neighborhood and the Southwestern Florida area. Our goal is to share the restful beauty of this home with others when we aren't enjoying it ourselves. Although we live in the Denver, Colorado area we have a collection of exceptional people and friends in Cape Coral that help us maintain and care for the Heron House. These wonderful people have more than ten years of experience at the Heron House and keep it in the condition we expect for ourselves. Major maintenance and renovations are kept up to date when we visit as often as we can, at least several times a year, so we can make sure things are kept the best possible.

Why Shawn or Amanda 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 and minor league 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.

Great house, awesome family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Heron House. The pool was fantastic and the home was perfect. All the little "extra" were very much appreciated (beach umbrellas, chairs, kids pool toys, movies, etc.). We will be back!
