Amazing Villa and location

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’

Fantastic stay


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.

Great Villa

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 recommended 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.

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

Great location - Great for a party of 4     Rating:   5/5

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. We commuted via champions gate. Driving here you have to have eyes everywhere there is no fast or slow lanes!!

Lovely villa in excellent location    Rating:   5/5

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.

Perfect break

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

Herons Rest is fabulous

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. Georgie and Carl

Beautiful villa can't wait to return

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.

 Title:   Lovely villa in a great location!

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.
 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

Title:    Wonderful stay at Heron's Rest

Review:   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.

Title:     Relaxing & Peaceful

Review:  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.

Title:         Supurb Villa!

Review:     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.

Review:    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 .

Excellent holiday home

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.

Fabulous, home from home

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. It’s 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

Title:         Another fabulous stay at Herons Rest       Rating:        5

Review:        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.

It’s 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 can’t wait to return!

We didn't know the area before we went but where 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)

Second visit this year, only one month this time! This says it all!!!! Hoping to visit again next year if it is still available. Villa is well situated for whatever you want to do on your holiday..convenient for theme parks, retail outlets or nature reserves. It is on an exceptionally quiet estate, and the view of the small lake from the lanai is both peaceful and relaxing. Villa was well maintained, very clean and well supplied with linen. All in all a great villa and a great holiday!

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.

Home from Home    5/5

This is our 3rd time staying at Heron’s Rest, and again we weren’t 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 isn’t 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.

Title:         Quality Villa in great location

Rating:      5/5

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.

Title:         Picture perfect setting      Rating:     5 / 5

Review:  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.

Title :- Amazing 5/5

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 themeing 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't want to leave one bit and will 

100% be booking again in the future. 

Thanks again Bev! Kieran, Philippa, Tom :)

Great Villa - Rating 5 star

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!

Review:        My wife and I have had holidays in Florida many times over past 17 years, initially with our children and grandchildren and latterly just the two of us.  Our most recent stay (Sept 16) at Herons rest was possibly the best we've both enjoyed.  For a small party the property is nigh on perfect.  Perfect location, sensational sunsets and utter privacy.  I'd be surprised if this is the only time we stay there!

Hi Bev, a note to say thanks. Your villa was amazing and a real joy to stay in. A lovely spacious layout and great pool. You must have one of the nicest plots on the property, as it's very peaceful with lovely views over the lake. Everything about it was perfect and it was a surprising and nice touch to have the sat nav available for us in the villa. Thanks again.

An amazing villa - Rating: 5/5

We have just returned from staying two weeks at this perfect home from home. The villa is spotlessly clean and well presented, and exceptionally well equipped. It looks exactly like in the pictures... amazing!!! The location is ideal - quiet yet within a few minutes drive of shops, supermarkets and restaurants, and with quick access to Hwy 27 and the I-4 for venturing further afield.
The large (and very private) pool deck is fantastic, and the covered area provides a respite from the sun when needed. The view of the lake is stunning, and we never tired of watching the array of wildlife (which even prompted a binoculars purchase lol).
We can highly recommend this villa, and will stay here again on our next visit if available. Nothing was too much trouble for Bev.

The villa was easy to find and set in a peaceful location with very friendly neighbours . The villa was spotlessly clean and looked exactly like it does in the photos and with the pool heating we were able to enjoy swimming everyday in what we have been told was the coldest February in a decade. The pool is also a great size for swimming with plenty of deck space around to lounge or eat. The villa was fully equipped and we had a great 4 week break there. We are definitely thinking of booking this villa again next year.

Holiday of a lifetime!!

From the second we pulled up on the driveway to the second we pulled away from it, its been amazing. The villa is stunning in both decor and location a real home away from home and we felt at home right away. Its set out beautifully. The massive pool deck is brilliant for enjoying the pool and a nice relax around it. Me and my brother enjoyed the lake alot of fishing catching alot of fish. Bev is an amazing owner and nothing is to much trouble for her. The one downside.. we have to go home!! Thinking of booking?? Then do it you wont regret it.

Would like to thank Bev for the most amazing stay in this spectacular villa! We made the best holiday memories on this holiday and the villa was all part of that.

We cannot wait to return for another amazing stay! Thanks again Bev

Fantastic Florida Villa

Dear Bev , Once again we had a fantastic time in one of your Rental Villas, thank you. It had everything you could wish for and more and was very clean and tidy. This as our second visit to Florida and we enjoyed every minute of it although exhausting some days we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had some great meals at Chillies, Millers Orlando Ale House, Bahama Breeze and many more, the food was always great and plenty of it. We did Universal both Islands of Adventure and the Studios and had a fabulous time. We went to the coast this time down to Clearwater and although it was so hot we had a great day at the beach. Once again Bev thank you so much for letting us rent one of your Villas again, I would to both Family and Friends they are perfect.

Super holiday

My sons and I travelled around a part of Florida for 3 weeks in July/August of 2015 and stayed at Heron’s Rest for a week. After the hotels, the villa was a true home away from home. Very clean, private and welcoming. We arrived on a Sunday and although I knew about the Florida pool alarm, I had no idea how to turn it off. Didn’t really want to have to call the management on a Sunday but I had 2 kids that couldn’t wait to get into the pool! A quick call and we were sorted. Even though it was Sunday I didn’t feel I was intruding which was a relief. Many thanks to Bev for the kind communication and the swift and correct handling when making the reservation as well as the return of the deposit afterwards. The kids and I had a holiday of a lifetime!

Lovely villa in great location

Really nice villa that has been refurbished to a high standard. Good sized pool with spacious lanai and plenty of room for 6 guests. We've stayed at Sunridge Woods a number of times and this property is really good quality - in some ways the photos don't do it justice. Ideal for anyone wanting to explore Florida or do all the theme parks.

Just spent three superb weeks at this very we'll appointed villa, everything you need, close to all attraction parks, loads of golf courses, shopping malls and places to eat to suit all budgets. The villa was very modern with all accessories required. We recommend you just bring yourselves and leave plenty of room in your suit cases for all the great bargains to be had, in short we loved this villa & location hope to be back soon, loved it

What can I say about this villa which hasn't already been said on previous reviews..... Brilliant place to settle down for a few weeks (or more) :). The place is brilliant. Home from a home. Location is very nice, having a pool which is not overlooked is a great benefit. View across lake is perfect, especially during sunset. Had such a relaxing time I didn't want to leave. Can't wait to go back

Have just returned from holiday,stayed at the Herons Rest. From the moment we arrived it was pure delight, the property is ideal for visiting all around Orlando. Herons Rest is a 5 star home, has everything you could wish for. Did not want to leave.

Ray Bell & Family - London  Date of Stay - October 2013

We are all now safely home. I wanted to thank you for letting us have the use of your lovely vacation home. We have stayed in Florida on a number of occasions and have stayed in villas for all but one when we stayed in a condo. The villas we have stayed in have all been comparable in price to yours however that's where the comparisons end. We have just enjoyed our BEST trip to Florida and that was down to the fact that your villa was so nice and comfortable and the communication and ease of dealing with yourself. Also helped having such a picturesque location next to the lake(nothing to do with the fact both my son and myself enjoy fishing!). We were at the lake daily fishing and caught some strange looking fish and some very snappy turtles. No animals were hurt in the making of this email they all went back safely. Once again a HUGE THANK YOU from Susan,Nadine,Dylan,Stuart and myself for helping us to have such a great vacation,oops I mean holiday!

Herons Rest, Davenport, Fl

We had a perfect vacation at Herons Rest. The home is beautiful, very clean, very quiet and safe neighborhood. Wonderful pool with screened lanai and a great view of the pond in the back yard. The pool area is very secluded with no neighbors to hear or see. The pond is alive with fish and birds, not a stagnant wetland. We had daily visits by a pair of Sandhills Cranes. Close to Disney, 20 minutes. Close to shopping, 5 minutes. Very comfortable beds, and more beach towels than the Marriott! Wifi, Wii, pool table, air hockey, fishing poles, laundry center. Well equipped kitchen. I hate to give it a 10 for fear of having it already booked when next we return, but a 10 it is.

Beautiful villa in superb location

Fabulously furnished property in quiet area not overlooked. The pool area is superb and the whole property is tastefully decorated throughout with everything you need to make you feel at home. Ideally located for Disney parks and Universal about 20 mins drive. Bev has been most helpful from day 1. Go ahead and BOOK you won't regret it!

Everything we'd wished for and more!!

This was our first visit to Orlando and the villa was fantastic! The location was perfect for Disney and Universal and it was situated on a beautiful, quiet community. It really was a home from home, every detail was thought of. My only complaint is that we had to leave it when the holiday was over!

Superbly Appointed Villa On Private Lake

After 20 years of vacationing in Orlando I think we have found the Perfect villa. The owners have recently purchased and upgraded the villa and it shows. Everything looks and feels new, from the carpets, flat screen TVs, and bedding right down to simple things like quality crockery and utensils. It certainly feels like no expense has been spared. Outside the pool is immaculate and the deck is oversized, but our favourite addition is a private lanai area which is perfect for shade from the sun. The villa is very private and the pool area offers a lovely view over the private lake.

Heron's Rest, Sunridge Woods

We loved staying at this very tastefully furnished home in a quiet residential area. The house is on a large corner plot and the large south facing deck and pool are not overlooked by any other property. The deck gets sun from early morning until late with beautiful sunsets over the small lake which is home to pairs of Grey Herons. It is easily accessible from Interstate 4 with local shops only a few minutes away and all of the Disney attractions can be reached within 15 - 20 minutes. We would have no hesitation in recommending this house to other families and hope to return soon.

Highly recommended
We really enjoyed our stay in Herons Rest, a spacious villa and pool in quiet location overlooking a lake, fully equipped to a high standard and beautifully decorated. Good info, easy to find, spotlessly clean and the 3 bed layout with 1 bedroom on one side and 2 on the other side is ideal for either 2 couples sharing or a family with children. Easy access to Orlando and Kissimmee and good restaurants - Applebees, Chilis, Bahama Breeze. Excellent value for money. We would highly recommend this villa.
