Heron's Rest


What can I say “ Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ as very keen and regular visitors to Disney we absolutely loved this villa.
Perfect right from the start of booking, speedy response to our initial enquiry, comprehensive information details at booking and for arrival, definitely all the information you need.
On arrival from the clear and exact directions, the villa exceeded our expectations. As soon as we drove onto the lovely long driveway and opened the door, we felt special, relaxed and cared for. It’s a beautiful quiet location, with wonderful views over a wildlife lake that is not overlooked by other villas. The villa was exceptional, immaculate, and spotless with all the amenities that you need, with appliances, utensils, store cupboard essentials, towels, linen,  washing facilities, games room, etc, etc, we couldn’t have asked for more. It is a lovely decorated and spacious villa, great for the 3 of us, with high ceilings which we love and super accessories, in particular the furnishings, our favourite being the large giraffe! This hits a note with us as we love Animal Kingdom. More than enough choice for the televisions and great internet too. Attention to detail is brilliant !  You are close to a great set of road links, I-4, 192, and I mean minutes away, so great for all Theme Parks and the Disney area which is less than 20 minutes away. Shopping is fab too, with Publix, Aldi, Walmart all a short distance away and Champions Gate only a few minutes away for restaurants, we love Miller’s Ale House and highly recommend a visit! We also just loved chilling around the pool, we had excellent weather and the sun is on the pool all day which is great, but there is shade if you want it. We so enjoyed this very special holiday for many reasons, but in particular the welcome we felt and received from Bev the home owner. Brilliant Thank You. We would definitely recommend this villa and have done so already and we will definitely stay here again. As Mickey says ‘ See you real soon’

This spacious three bedroom villa was just perfect for the two of us and everything from the initial contact with Bev to our 15 night stay at Herons Rest was amazing.  For us, little things make such a difference...like good quality pots and pans, sharp knives for cooking (weird but true!), starter dishwasher tablets etc.  The pool deck is ideal for those who love the Florida sunshine as well as good shade for most of the day for those preferring not to soak up the rays. Very clean villa in excellent order and highly recommended.

We have just had a lovely holiday in this villa. We have stayed on Sunridge Woods numerous times as it is in an ideal location for all local amenities. This villa met our expectations and was clean and comfortable. Loved that the pool was so private and not overlooked at all with amazing views over the lake and regular visits from the sand cranes. Bev provided all information that was needed and was very responsive to any queries we had.

We were recomended to go with Bev from a friend of ours and i can not fault her in anyway. Bev was a great help in organising our villa 18 months ago for our big family adventure in August 2019. The villa was so well equipped, very welcoming situated in the perfect place for our trips to Disney. Bev kept in contact with us and was able to recomend a car hire company, best place to get park tickets, places to eat, shop and visit. The welcome brochure on arrival had everything you needed. Main thing was directions to the park and nearest place to food shop. We will certaily be back again and will be recommending Bev to all our friends and family.

Another fabulous holiday in this amazing villa, it really does have everything you need for a perfect holiday.
Location, facilities, cleanliness and comfort are great as is the other villa we have rented from Bev, they are a credit to you and your management team.
Thank you Bev and your team for all your help in making our holiday perfect in everyway

Our 3rd visit to Florida another great villa selected. We are a party of 4 and it was great for us although the villa can accommodate 6 for watching TV and sunbathing it may be a squeeze as only 4 sun loungers and 2 sofas. We note the owners have a larger villa too! All facilities provided. Plenty of wildlife to see look for the pair of red/orange birds, the cranes strolling past you will hear them arrive! The eagles up above, the black snakes passing by or found on your doorstep they are non poisonous. Watching the hot air balloons set off if you are up early! It’s very clean of which is most important we would book again.

This was our third stay at the villa and we love it. In fact have already booked it again for next year! The villa is in a lovely location and is in a friendly quiet neighborhood. The villa itself is lovely, clean and comfortable, with everything you need to have a home from home. The pool area is excellent with a lovely area to chill in the shade. The pool is perfect and looks onto the lake which is so relaxing. The herons regularly wander past the villa which is lovely. The games room was a bonus which our boys loved. Bev is lovely and very friendly and easy to book with. The maintenance team are also excellent. Bev leaves a booklet with some pointers, even though we have been to Florida numerous times before it was great to have some local information and recommendations. We can confirm that Miller's at champions Gate was excellent, and you need to try the delicious ice cream at Posner park.

We have just come back from a fantastic week staying in Herons Rest The villa was spotless on arrival, everything was provided it really was like home from home. Bev was so helpful from making the booking until we left the villa, even trying to help sort out a hire car while we were out there, nothing was any trouble for her. Thanks again for letting us stay here x


Date of stay: February 2019               Marshall family, Wales



We have been staying at Herons Rest for our holidays for years and can honestly say that it truly is one of the best villas we have stayed in. Herons Rest is luxurious, warm and welcoming and perfectly equipped with everything you could possibly wish for. The pool and decking area is south facing with sunshine all day and overlooks a beautiful lake. If you’re patient enough you can see a Gator or two. The wildlife is beautiful, particularly the Cranes who graze near the lake. The villa is perfectly situated near to the I4 and theme parks, as well as a huge choice of fabulous bars and restaurants. If you fancy exploring further afield, there are beautiful State Parks to walk or cycle around or even rent a canoe. We are booked up for the next few years. I would highly recommend. Thanks to Bev for all the fabulous memories and here’s to many more.

We have stayed in a number of villas within the area over the last 18 years and can honestly say this is one of the best we have stayed in.

Centrally located within a community close to the theme parks, this villa isnclean and tidy with all the home comforts. Bev, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, doing everything possibly tonensure we had a lovely stay. We arrived late and Bev was able to organise

groceries which was very welcome after a long flight!  We had a wonderful holiday at Herons Rest and can't wait to visit again soon!

Heron's rest is a beautiful peaceful villa located at Sunridge Woods which is near Champions gate. It overlooks a lake which features wading birds, the odd alligator and jumping fish and stunning sunsets. The villa is very well equipped and offers every comfort for anyone wishing to experience the attractions or to just relax and enjoy the lakeside views. The villa has a huge driveway so for a 2 car family this was ideal for us. TVs in every room meant we could all relax at the end of the day watching our favourite programmes. We have stayed at other villas over the years but have to confess Bev the owner goes out of her way to help you with your every need. Her customer service skills are exceptional and nothing is too much trouble for her she is always there for you. The information we were given prior to departure was perfect and we had no problems finding the villa at all as the directions were excellent. Having a safe in the villa was a bonus for us this year and the lovely pool was something we enjoyed everyday. There was a rocket launch whilst we were there and this added to our enjoyment. One of the best holidays we have had and we will certainly return to Heron's rest not only for the wonderful location but also for the peace of mind knowing that you have an excellent management company for any issues. Thank you once again Bev we shall return.

We stayed in this villa for the 2nd time in september for two weeks. Once again it was absolutely amazing. The decor and cleanliness of the place is to such a high standard and the owners are so lovely! We never have any problems here but if we were to need something, I have no doubt that the owners would go above and beyond to help! We can not wait to come back and stay in this spacious villa again, it really is a little piece of paradise, thankyou!

Myself and my family have just arrived home after an amazing stay at Heron’s Rest. The villa itself is spacious, comfortable and clean with a beautiful pool which looks out onto a lovely lake. It’s set on a corner plot, so you are not overlooked at all. Every night we enjoyed sitting out by the pool with a glass of wine and watching the gorgeous sunsets. It was so peaceful and the only thing you could hear when sitting out was the delightful sounds of the local wildlife. We did a lot of self catering so was pleased that the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable as were the sofas. There were plenty of towels and it was very convenient having the washing machine and tumble dryer in the garage. The kids also loved the air hockey and pool table. We were pleased to see that a Sat Nat was provided as we used a few times when heading out a bit further afield. The villa is situated in a great location, only 25 minutes from all the parks and shopping outlets and just 35 minutes from the airport. Restaurants and supermarkets are only 5 minutes away. We were at Publix a lot! Time went by so quickly and after a few days it really did feel like a home from home. We definitely hope to visit again in the future. I would also like to add that Bev is a fantastic host. She is very welcoming, and any queries were responded to immediately.

Stayed at Bevs lovely villa last 2 weeks in June. House is very clean and everything you require is available. Furnishings are clean and comfortable and plenty of towels as well. The pool is fantastic and the lanai gives so much privacy and space. We probably spent the majority of the time out here with the gorgeous lake view. Bev was very helpful and responsive to all my questions and could not find any fault whatsoever in the whole process. If i get back any time soon i would definately book here again .

Date of stay: June 2018                   McFarlane’s, Scotland


We have stayed in a number of Florida properties, this villa by far is the best. Situated in a quiet, secluded, estate overlooking a lake this property offers guests a peaceful and tranquil holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean and equipped to a very high standard. With restaurants, supermarkets and parks within easy reach it’s location is suitable for families of all ages. We found Bev to be extremely helpful throughout the booking process and provided us with plenty of information about the area prior to our arrival.
