Below are reviews and testimonials from guests who have previously stayed in this vacation villa.
"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."
Jane Troth - September 2019
"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."
Sherlock Family , West Sussex - September 2019
"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."
Chandler Family, Bedfordshire - August 2019
"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. We love Florida and everything it has to offer for a great holiday and will definitely be returning in the future. Thankyou Bev and your team for all you help in making our holiday perfect in everyway"
Newman family, Staffordshire - July 2019
"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."
The Bell family, Bathgate - May 2019
"We have just come back from a fantastic week staying in this villa. If you're thinking of booking it, do it quick I couldn't recommend it enough. The villa was spotless on arrival, everything was provided it really was like home from home. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the games room. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of extra bedding and towels if needed. It's close to Disney and only about 25 minutes from Seaworld,aquatica and discovery cove. Bev was so helpful from making the booking up 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"
Marshall family, Wales - February 2019
"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 youíre 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 hereís to many more. Georgie and Carl x"
Georgie and Carl , UK - February 2019
"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 is clean and tidy with all the home comforts. As well as a well equipped kitchen, there is a pool table, air hockey table, games console, Wifi, books, DVDs and a large TV with Netflix. Bev, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, doing everything possibly to ensure 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!"
Sam Hester - December 2018
"We had a fantastic holiday in Orlando in December 2018. Bev was amazing, she was so helpful and friendly throughout the booking process and when we arrived we fell in love with the villa instantly. The villa was lovely and cozy, very well decorated and the sofas and beds were so comfy, my husband and I had our 4 month old baby with us and we had everything we needed. The pool was also stunning and a great temperature despite being December, the lake view was lovely. The location is great, with shops resturants and bars close by and none of the main Orlando attractions are more than 25 minutes away. We had such a lovely holiday that we have rebooked with Bev for 2019 and can't wait to return."
rmerod family , Uk - December 2018
"Upon entering the property we were all so pleased with the presentation and cleanliness of this property and its neighbourhood. A good family base , generous sized rooms and fair sized pool to entertain the kids .....ok and adults too! It felt very much a home from home. A very peaceful location, short journeys to all the known attractions , we will definitely return to continue our US Florida holiday fun!"
he Slowleys, Lincolnshire - October 2018
"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 w"
Watson Lee Family - October 2018
"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!"
Philippa and Co, England - September 2018
"My family & I would highly recommend staying at Heron's Rest. Bev was very helpful and there was plenty of information with regards the area when we arrived. A very well equipped villa with the use of a sat nav if required. The washer and dryer were a godsend and the games room located in the garage was used numerous times. We loved the pool area and it was very private and quiet with just the sounds of the local wildlife to listen to. We often saw the Heron's beside the lake and the odd squirrel too. The surrounding area itself is extremely well kept and peaceful. Championsgate is near too and we often ate there at the various restaurants, especially Millers. Also close to all the Disney Parks and the nearest Supermarket is Publix. We definitely would not hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to Orlando."
The Cleall Family, Manchester - August 2018
"Myself and my family have just arrived home after an amazing stay at Heronís Rest. The villa itself is spacious, comfortable and clean with a beautiful pool which looks out onto a lovely lake. Itís 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 shoppin"
The Gubbins Family, Surrey - August 2018
"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 ."
McFarlaneís, Scotland - June 2018
"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 itís 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."
Larry and Karen Jones - May 2018
"Our 5th visit to Orlando but our 1st to Herons Rest. Bev was very helpful and great to deal with, before, during and after our visit. The villa is ideally placed for visiting all the attractions. Itís also in a fantastic position for lazing by the pool or fishing in the lake. The villa has everything you need well equipped with hairdryers, straighteners and plenty of bathroom & pool towels. There was also enough utensils/kitchenware, not that we did too much cooking. We would not hesitate to recommend Herons Rest to couples or families for an amazing holiday"
Murray Family, Swinton - April 2018
"We have been travelling to Florida for many years and have stayed in numerous Villa's over the period. Without question, this is our favourite. The villa is conveniently located with easy access to the I4, local amenities, Disney and Universal Studios theme parks, not to mention beautiful state parks. The villa is luxurious in every respect, the pool area is South facing with sun all day with a covered area. The villa is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The range of kitchen utensils for example, is excellent. Bev really has thought of everything with things like hairdryers and straighteners. We always make excellent use of the Pool and air hockey table. Its great fun to listen to some music and shoot some pool with a beverage or two. We are booked up to stay for the next few years and will continue to do so indefinitely. Thank you for yet another fabulous stay Bev. It gets harder and harder to leave every time we visit."
Georgie and Carl, UK - March 2018
"My girlfriend and I decided to book this villa after a recommendation from my sister who had previously stayed in Heronís Rest. Both the villa and Bev have been fantastic! Bev was incredibly helpful prior to going and whilst out there. The villa was incredibly spacious, well equipped and spotless. Itís location is also ideal - a very short drive from all of the parks yet superbly peaceful and tranquil after a long day! Highly recommended and we canít wait to return!"
Ben & Bonnie, Manchester - January 2018
"We didn't know the area before we went but were the villa is situated is so relaxing, we just sat and watched the wildlife and my husband fished. The villa is beautiful has everything you need and Bev couldn't have been more helpful, so much so that we would return in a heartbeat. There are restaurants bars and shops within a short drive also, the Disney parks aren't to far away either. If you want to do a villa this one is a must. Thank you to Bev for a wonderful stay. We didn't want to come home (we WILL have to return)"
The Daniels - December 2017
"Saw this villa and reviews on VR360 Homes and immediately contacted the owner Bev. Excellent communication between both parties with accurate local information and directions ensuring an easy transition to the Villa. The Villa did not disappoint at all, beautiful and clean with all the amenities you could wish for (had a welcome pack on arrival). Of course the pool area and games room was the kids favourite and used quite often. The villa was set in a stunning and quiet location. We took time out to walk around the estate and see the other villas decorated for Halloween. Excellently located with short drives to all the Disney Parks. Can't thank Bev enough for allowing us to stay at this beautiful Villa and would definitely recommend it to family and friends."
The Traynors - November 2017
"This is our 3rd time staying at Heronís Rest, and again we werenít disappointed. It was everything as we had remembered, the house is well looked after throughout. The pool is an added bonus, with an excellent seating area which has the added bonus of being undercover, which came in handy when a big storm set in and we could still sit outside. The house isnít too far from Disney World so came in handy after a long day at the parks, water parks and shopping centres. We absolutely love this property, and everything it has to offer, we cannot wait to return again."
Burton Family - September 2017
"Herons Rest is a perfect Villa in a great location, it was a great base for us for our 3 week stay. It's located 5 minutes from the main i 4 motorway & close to all major attractions. We are a family of four and had ample room, the kids loved the pool and spent hours playing in it, the games room also comes in handy. Kitchen facilities are excellent and has everything you need. If you do get time to watch TV there are plenty of channels to watch and picture quality is very good. Air con is brilliant and works perfectly. The owner Bev was fantastic to deal with and nothing was too much trouble, even the daft questions I asked her from time to time! Bev would always reply to my email questions very quickly. I can highly recommend staying at the Villa as it has everything needed and was spotlessly clean, tidy and extremely comfortable."
The Cullen family - June 2017
"This is the second time we have rented from Bev and we were not disappointed. Information prior to arrival was excellent, very clear instructions even if you haven't been to Orlando before. Champions gate is one of the best areas we have stayed in and we have been coming to Orlando and Florida for 17 years. The villa itself made you feel comfortable from the first time you walked through the door with everything there that you could wish for. The highlight has to be the pool area, spotlessly clean, very private and a lovely view over a small lake. If you have children they will be thrilled with the games room, even us oldies played pool and air hockey. A wonderful relaxing stay even though the weather wasn't kind to us we took the opportunity to chill out with a glass of wine and a cooked meal. Would certainly recommend and hope to come back."
Gaynor and Kevin Smith - June 2017
"We booked this Villa because it was by far the nicest one we could find online, when we arrived it looked even better than the pictures! It was extremely clean and comfortable, we felt right at home as it was equipped with everything we could possible need. The villa was very spacious and the area we were staying in was lovely, quiet and relaxing.. just what you want after a long, busy day at the parks! Every room was immaculate and we LOVED the theming in the living room (we're animal obsessed) ha We enjoyed sitting out by the pool on a night and watching all of the wildlife go by, we saw an alligator, tortoises and turtles, an otter, an armadillo and huge birds! Everything about our stay here was perfect, we were a 20-30 minute drive away from all the parks, and had lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Our contact with Bev was Excellent, she always replied straight away answering any questions we had and was very helpful. This was our 5th time to Florida and by the the best, we didn"
Kieran Elliot, May 2017
"Had a lovely stay in this great villa, very comfortable and extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need . Beautifully decorated and the swimming pool had a lovely outlook over the lake and was very private. Bev sent us plenty of info and instructions which made it was very easy to find. Being with a teenager we enjoyed the games in the garage and the wi-fi was fab. Would recommend without hesitation and would love to return."
Cassidy Family February 2017
"We're loathe to write a review as selfishly we would want to keep this property a secret. What a pleasure to book a villa that's so clean and well maintained. The setting is ideal- very quiet, peaceful and easily accessed by car and convenient for shopping , theme parks etc. The villa was equipped with everything needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay, and for us, what was best about it was the privacy and tranquility. Information given prior to travelling was comprehensive and the owner's communications with us were always prompt and helpful. We loved our stay and will definitely return!"
Jean & Gerry from Stirling January 2017
Sunridge Woods, ChampionsGate / Loughman
Sunridge Woods is an established estate of 3, 4, 5 and 6 bedroom vacation and residential houses, built around small lakes in a woodland environment. Situated on over-sized plots for added privacy, villas in this community provide peace and quite away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks - with just the local bird-life to keep you company when relaxing by the pool.
For golfers there are a number of first rate courses in the local area, which should allow you to make an early morning tee time.
Sunridge Woods is located around 7 miles north-east of the intersection between Interstate 4 and US27, which is where you will find the Posner Park shopping complex. This offers major stores including JC Penney, Target, Ross, Dress for Less and many more. There are also a selection of restaurants around this section of US27 and and a British tavern.
Closer to the community is the ChampionsGate area, in which there are a number of restaurants and eateries including Chilis, La Crepe, Subway, China One (take-away), Pizza Hut, Dunkin Donuts, Wingstreet and other eateries. For finer dining and a relaxing evening, there is the Omni resort itself. The nearest supermarket is Publix, which is also located in ChampionsGate. There is also a Walgreen's pharmacy and a 7-Eleven one-stop shop. The nearest Walmart is around 13 miles south towards Haines City or around 15 miles towards Kissimmee alongside Medieval Times. This is also where you will find the countless restaurants, bars and eateries along the US192 and SR535 towards Walt Disney World.
