A spectacular tropical oasis and retreat for our "Winter Accommodations" Bob and Joan
J and B
"Having stayed at Heritage Bay Golf and Country Club for three years, each year in a different condo, we knew Heritage Bay was where we wanted to be, but the previous three years each left something to be desired in our housing.
For 2015 we were looking for something different and unique, but yet very special and accommodating.
My time on VRBO was well spent as I found a fabulous Abbey Veranda on Siesta Bay Drive owned by Caroline and her husband Alfredo.
We had stayed in terraces and other veranda's the previous years, but none had the lure and excitement that this veranda offered.
Caroline (Of French heritage) designed and decorated her home as if you were to be vacationing on the French Riviera.
The veranda's real appeal is its location off the path of the golf cart path but still in sight of the golf course and greens. Most of all is the serenity of the rear lanai facing a narrow marsh full of birds and floral life, but with sensational views of the lakes. Sunrise and sunset, a real treat with a glass of wine or your beverage of choice in your hand, while sitting and enjoying life with your favorite companion.
Nothing in this home has been left out. The kitchen, baths, utility room etc all have whatever you require. The garage is great, and houses five varying size bikes and beach equipment.
The front veranda(having two, one in front & one in the back, makes this an even greater treat. A quiet dinner for two on the front veranda while grilling your favorite foods on the electric grill that is provided.
A feature no one else had thought of was controls for lights and fans that are accessible for a regular switch. No reaching to the fan for controls.
The entertainment provide is exceptional. Three large HD flat screens, with the main on in the family room having blu ray DVD and Netlix, pandora etc and a host of many tv stations for you enjoyment.
We were always thrilled to have friends come over for cocktails or dinner and enjoy our tropical abode with us.
Caroline has made certain nothing is lacking and that makes this property so special.
I would be remiss if I did not say how relaxed I felt awaking each morning from the terrific king size bed, and looking out the bedroom windows at anothing spectacular and fun filled day in Heritage Bay.
The club itself is great and provides just about anything you could think of in a golfing and country club.
For an active, relaxing and superior vacation you would be remiss not to book this venue."
