Ian & Janet Bundle

Hello, we are Ian and Janet, we first visited Florida with our son in May/June 1993. Our son was coming up for 7 and we thought this the ideal age to visit the theme parks. We trawled through the tour brochures and picked a hotel for 2 weeks followed by a week just outside Tampa in a villa. The difference between the 2 was huge so when we visited again a couple of years later we booked a villa and never looked back.

We have since visited many more times, both with our family and without and have always stayed in a villa.

In Spring 2005 we eventually bit the bullet and purchased our own 3 bedroom home on Sunridge Woods. We purchased this particular home after viewing probably about 100+ homes because of the size of the swimming pool, it is larger than a lot of pools being 30 foot long, and because of its very quiet position.

We love to visit Florida as often as possible, often taking family and friends with us.

We enjoy having guests stay in our home so that they too can enjoy the wonderful variety of attractions and natural beauty that Florida has to offer.

Florida is our favourite subject, so any questions, just ask away :)

We had a really fabulous time. The villa and pool were great, we loved the fact that the pool was so private. The villa was extremely well equipped and we had everything we needed. I’d recommend it to anyone doing an Orlando holiday! Thank you so much. CA, Eng, July 2013

Wonderful time

5.0 / 5

"We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at The Herons. The villa was clean and had everything you could ask for, a real home from home with a great pool that the family all loved to get in. Its located in a quiet residential area, and is a great place to come back to after a busy day at the parks, but with all the amenities you could wish for only a few minutes away. We would definitely recommend this villa as ideally situated for Disney and other attractions, and would rebook. Janet & Ian are fantastic people to deal with, very prompt service and knowledgeable about the Orlando area. Thanks once again for making our 1st family Florida trip a memory to treasure."

Owner's response: Thank you Simon for your very kind words, so pleased to have helped you make wonderful memories.


Loved the Geko's

5.0 / 5

Just to say we love the villa. It's absolutely perfect for us. Our girls love the pool, to the point we've actually left the parks early afternoon (it's also very very hot!!), because they want to get in the pool. We are loving the family of Herons we see daily and now used to having geckos running around inside and out however the new request for a pet is a gecko..... not happening!!!

Guest name: CF
Date of visit: May 2017

Owner's response: Spoilsport!! So glad you had fun.


Very enjoyable

5.0 / 5

We are all back home and have recovered from a very enjoyable holiday.

Very peaceful

5.0 / 5

Had a great six weeks at your home. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the peace and quiet by the pool in the evenings and watching the wildlife during the day. Hope to be able to book again next year.

Guest name: R&CL
Date of visit: Jan/Feb 18

Owner's response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, we look forward to welcoming you back :)


Fantastic home

5.0 / 5

We really enjoyed our holiday, always sad when it's time to come home. The villa was fantastic everything we expected - we even encountered an unexpected guest of a beautiful tortoise.

Thank you for letting us enjoy your villa.

Guest name: C&D L
Date of visit: August 17

Owner's response: We love the gopher tortoises too, there were 3 of them last time we were there


Wonderful Home

5.0 / 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay.
We were able to enjoy family time with 4 generations together in a beautiful place.
We hope we can return in the future for another vacation.

Guest name: M D
Date of visit: Feb 18

Owner's response: Wow, 4 generations, that is something. Glad you enjoyed your stay.


Christmas

5.0 / 5

It seems like a while ago since we were at your home enjoying the sun and the heat and hospitality of your villa. I cannot thank you enough for the Christmas decorations and tree that was put up before we arrived.
We had a marvellous time in the Villa and it truly was a home from home.
I will have no issues what so ever in recommending your villa to others who I know are looking for a Florida vacation. It was so easy dealing with yourselves and the service was superb.

Guest name: RC
Date of visit: Christmas/New Year 2016/17

Owner's response: It was an absolute pleasure, Mickey Mouse loves Christmas too so decorations and tree had to be put up :)


Easily found

5.0 / 5

We only managed a few days at this beautiful home as we were waiting to go on a cruise, but Janet & Ians home is beautiful and we will be staying there a lot longer when we return to Florida in 2018.
It is very easy to find, as they say, easily accessible to wherever you wish to go, and so much bigger than the photos suggest. We loved the 'bits and pieces' very carefully positioned around and named the pelican Pedro!

Guest name: KL
Date of visit: November 2016

Owner's response: Glad you enjoyed our home and look forward to welcoming you back again :) Funny enough, we called the pelican Pedro too, must suit him :)


Great home

5.0 / 5

The villa is beautiful and so close to those essential amenities.
We have stayed in villas before that said they were south facing, but they can't have been as it was 92 degrees in the pool yesterday!

Guest name: TE
Date of visit: August 2016

Owner's response: The pool is definitely south facing and no pool heat was on! I know it was a little hotter than usual in Florida this year, we can have the 'heating' reversed to cool the pool slightly and I understand that this is what our pool guy did for you which made swimming more comfortable. So glad you liked our home and maybe we will hear from you again :)


Great holiday

5.0 / 5

We had a really lovely time at your villa the boys loved it and we had loads of space, it was great being able to open the doors and get in the pool! Although we didn't use it as much as we'd hoped as we spent a lot of the time in the disney parks.
Will be back in touch next year to stay again.

Guest name: LM
Date of visit: October 2016

Owner's response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and pleased that the Wi-Fi was repaired so quickly for you. Look forward to hearing from you again :)


Even a hurricane did not spoil this trip

5.0 / 5

This is the third time we have stayed at The Herons, and even Hurricane Matthew could not spoil our holiday this time. The Herons Villa is situated in an ideal position to get around easily but once 'home' it is absolutely tranquil, it is so pretty, an ideal home to stay in, even the homes that have been built behind do not interfere with the privacy, peace and tranquillity of staying here, we cannot ever envisage staying anywhere else.

Guest name: PB
Date of visit: October 216

Owner's response: Thank you for your very kind remarks. We are so glad that Matthew did not put you off, we were glad that we could help when your flight home was delayed.


Perfect Base

5.0 / 5

I just wanted to let you know we had a fantastic time in Florida and your home was the perfect base. The photos do not do it justice and it far exceeded our expectations. There is everything you need and more. Everything worked perfectly. Will definitely be in touch next time we go to see if it's available.

Guest name: VF
Date of visit: July 2016

Owner's response: Great, so glad you had a good time, not sure what to do about the photos! will put our thinking caps on :) Hope to hear from you when arranging your next trip.


Fabulous Home

5.0 / 5

We have just returned from our 2nd stay with you, the first time being a few years back now. We have to say the the improvements made are brilliant, your home was lovely before, now it is fabulous, even the homes over the the back of you do not detract from the privacy as you cannot be seen due to the bushes you have planted. We will certainly be back once pennies have been saved again :)

Guest name: Margaret
Date of visit: June 2016

Owner's response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay again and glad you like the planting, we are more than happy with the way it is growing and keeping our guests privacy.


Bigger than I thought

5.0 / 5

We booked your home as it looked rather nice, but when we arrived we were absolutely amazed, your home is so much bigger than it looks in your photos, they really do not do it justice, we have changed our mind from your home being rather nice, to it is fabulous and the pool is huge. Thank you so much for allowing us to to experience a wonderful home that we hope to return to.

Guest name: SW
Date of visit: March 2016

Owner's response: So glad you you were impressed. You are the third person this year to say about the photos, we will re-do them on our next visit and please do get in touch with us when you return, it will be great to have you as our guests again :)


SO Happy

5.0 / 5

Thank you so much for renting your house to us. We felt incredibly comfortable and at home there from the first day.

We were conscious that it was your home but that did not prevent it from being very relaxing but rather made it feel homely. The villa had everything we could have asked for. We actually spent relatively little time there but it was a fantastic base to have. The children loved the pool and being able to go in on the odd day we returned early or had a morning there.

The location was perfect; near enough to the parks and far enough away to get away from the parks and the attractions when we felt a bit parked out! Before we arrived we heard horror stories of it taking an hour to get from Davenport to the parks! Goodness knows what route they were taking as we comfortably did it in more like 20 minutes.

Were we in a position to return to Orlando we would definitely want to stay at the villa again and would recommend it to friends.

Guest name: CBL
Date of visit: March & April 2016

Owner's response: Thank you for this CL, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again at some time.


Glorious home

5.0 / 5

We all just wanted you to know how sorry we are at having to come home. We have just spent 3 weeks in the most amazing home we could wish for, we wanted for absolutely nothing and the pool is wonderful, it is just so big.
Your home is also in a very quiet area, it was great for when we just needed to unwind after a very long day at the parks. Your home is so conveniently situated to get to any part of Florida very easily, we went up north to St Augustine's and had a wonderful day there seeing the old fort and touring the Old Town.
We will definitely be back, it may be a year or two but we will be back and will contact you when we are ready.

Guest name: ST
Date of visit: 10/15

Owner's response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, please do come back, and agree about St Augustine, it is a lovely place.


3rd visit

5.0 / 5

We had a lovely time again thank you the villa was lovely as always, especially the pool!!
We were amazed at how quiet it is it made it very relaxing on the days we had a rest from the parks.

We will definitely keep you in mind for future trips!

Guest name: AW
Date of visit: May 2015

Owner's response: Looking forward to your next visit :)


Great home

5.0 / 5

just to say thank you: we had a lovely time at your property - it was really comfortable and well equipped - and especially relaxing to get back to the pool and cool off after a gruelling day at the theme parks!

Guest name: JM
Date of visit: September 15

Owner's response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again :)


Tired but great

5.0 / 5

Eventually arrived home suitably tired after our holiday.
Your home was like home from home, and the boys loved the pool.
It is a long time since we have been and never in July, so the heat
Was really intense, but as you said water and sunscreen so no problems.
Thanks again, we had a great time, talk soon

Guest name: EB
Date of visit: July 2015

Owner's response: Yes, July and August are very humid and hot but glad you survived :) Please feel free to contact us if you are visiting Florida in the future.


Great Pool

4.0 / 5

We arrived today at the Herons Villa, and we already went swimming, the weather is lovely and so is your home.
We collected the tickets for Disney world, lego, sea world, etc... today at Celebration! Thanks again for the tip!
The cot bed is big enough for Evie, it's great!

Guest name: MN
Date of visit: February 2016

Owner's response: Glad you found the ticket link useful and enjoyed your stay, please feel free to contact us should you be visiting Florida again.


Fourth visit

5.0 / 5

This was our fourth time of staying at your home and we are really impressed that each time you have made changes with the furniture and fixings, this means that each time we arrive we feel as though we are in a new home. The only thing that doesn't change is the size of the pool and outside area, both are pretty big and the kids love the pool no matter what time of the year we have visited.
We will be in touch next year to arrange our 5th stay.

Guest name: ME
Date of visit: December 16

Owner's response: Hi ME, think you were getting carried away with the date on this one, you stayed in December 15, does this mean you want to stay again this Christmas I wonder!!
So glad you are such a regular visitor, it is lovely getting to know our guests like this.
