This is a perfect house for a large group.....it is a very spacious house with a short walk to the beach. The beach is not in close proximity to any public beaches, which is great because many times, we were the only family on the beach.. Area of improvement would be to get rid of the carpet in the upstairs bedrooms, the carpet is badly stained.

Manager's Response - 12/31/1969

Thank you for the review. We have already gotten the carpet replaced in the upstairs bedrooms with tile that looks like wood. It is a beautiful tile and adds to the charm of Heron House. Please see the property photos showing the updates. Thanks Again and we are glad you had a good time ! Kingfisher Vacations

Great house - perfect for our crowd


Great property. First time staying in Captiva (usually do condos in Sanibel) but had a few other families joining us. Was concerned about being on bay side but ended up being a bonus. We rented paddle boards and a kayak and they were in constant use. House is so close to blind pass it was pretty easy to paddle to the right about 100 yards or so, pass under the bridge and meet the rest of us at end of walkway on beach... Main negative for bay side were the 'no-seeums.' They are pretty hungry things. Heard from our boat captain that putting mouthwash in spray bottle will keep them away better than bug sprays . . . Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, glasses and dishes. Could use a few more baking/casserole type dishes and the silverware was washed after every meal. Large pantry was nice for storing our items. Washing machine and dryer are in kitchen so we tried to do laundry different from meal times. TV's in rooms were fine - we've stayed without at times which is a bummer. The upstairs den TV could use a little updating. Plenty of dining room for our crowd. Would have loved to had an upper screened area to sit in - always something happening in the bay but the no-seeums, well . . . There are some small folding chairs and a great beach wagon/buggie in a garage. The management company was very good with keeping in touch. Called to let us know HVAC guy was on way to fix a/c before we even arrived and called mid-week to touch base and remind of us check out procedures. Kids caught lots of fish off dock. There was nice 'reminder' in welcome manual about wearing shoes on dock to prevent splinters because dock is being repaired as soon as house is not rented. Walk path to beach is easy to find and navigate. Beach is very private with just a few people from a couple houses. Wifi doesn't connect if you stay downstairs so warn the kiddos so you don't have overage fees for your data plans . . . It is evident that repairs/upgrades are being made to property (as compared to some of the photos) and so far they are all great moves. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Heron House


We stayed at Heron House for the month of January. The house sits on beautiful property with a private dock along the water. It's a big house with lots of outside seating, a pool, and bbq. There is also a separate apartment below the house. The kitchen has all the nice and professional appliances. There are some drawbacks: the house is dated. Needs new carpeting, needs to upgrade the tv's in the bedrooms, and the master bathroom is in need of repairs. Management has indicated they intend to address these issues.

More than perfect


I recently had the opportunity to stay at The Green Heron House. We had a wonderful week with plenty of space for our entire party of 8 and even some to spare. The house has everything you could think of to ensure your perfect vacation.

The Wedding of Her Dreams


We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our family wedding. Plenty of room to get together and visit, and enough space to spread out.

wonderful for large groups


We stayed for a week with three parents, six adult siblings/spouses, and two grandkids (teenagers). The house was spacious enough for everyone. Kingfisher was very responsive whenever we needed something. The house overlooks a beautiful estuary; the beach is a five-minute walk across the road. The week went by in a flash.

Wonderful peaceful week!!


We loved the house! It is very large, 2 kitchens..there was only 4 of us and we barely touched using the house. The pool was great and the dock has great fishing my husband spent most of his time there and loved every minute of it. Of course there are many good places to eat, Madhatter, Lazy Flamingo, Sanibel Cafe only to name a few. Well worth the last minute trip!
