Well-Appointed, Dog-Friendly Villa with Beach Club & Outdoor Pool
Herons Crossing - Resort Villas at Lost Key is professionally managed by Vacasa. Herons Crossing is a gorgeously-decorated four-bedroom, four-bath private villa located half a mile from the Gulf of Mexico in a tranquil park-like setting punctuated with luxurious appointments. This home is also less than 13 miles from Naval Air Station Pensacola, home of the world-famous Blue Angels! With a king-size bed in the primary bedroom, another king bed in the second primary bedroom, a queen-size bed in a downstairs guest bedroom, as well as two twin-size bunk beds in the additional guest bedroom, this exquisite villa accommodates up to 12 guests comfortably. The primary bedroom has a dual walk-in shower making it super convenient to get clean when you arrive back from the beach. This retreat also comes with beach service so no worries about lugging your chairs to the beach under the hot sun.
Herons Crossing has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated by detail-oriented owners with an eye for comfort and function. Upon entering the Villa from the second-floor entrance, you will find the open concept living and dining rooms and fully-stocked chef’s kitchen. With high-end stainless-steel appliances, plenty of storage space, a huge pantry and ample cookware, dinnerware and utensils, you may be tempted to cook more often, despite temptations from nearby restaurants. The beautifully-decorated dining room makes even casual meals special. The open concept living area features comfortable coastal décor and a 65-inch Roku-enabled television and DVD player so you can cozy up to loved ones for a movie night at home. The living room opens to a private covered lounging deck perfect for sipping morning coffee, watching bald eagles, ospreys, and herons fly by o relaxing in the evenings with a cocktail. Rounding out this floor is a guest bedroom with a queen-size bed and a full bathroom with a shower over the tub.

Everything in the home was very organized, clean, homy, and comfortable except the A/C. Once we figured out how to change the "hold" from 4 hours to 24 hours we were able to stay comfortable in the home. The temperature would reset every 4 hours to 75 degrees making it very uncomfortable to be in. Vacasa was unable to help us but they were responsive and tried to. We appreciated everyone trying to figure out the electrical company's thermostat. We would recommend Vacasa again!

The home was beautiful and bigger in person. We had plenty of room. We loved the beach club and how convenient it was.

We saw deer, eagles, herons, bluebirds even a turtle from the deck. When it was cold we sat below and it was warm and sheltered from the wind and sunny. Such a quiet relaxing place. House was clean and had everything we needed. Highly recommend.

This home had every little thing you could need- well equipped kitchen and little touches throughout that make it so comfortable. Furniture is very nice, neighborhood is peaceful and the Beach Club is so great- even if it’s not great weather, you can still enjoy sitting at the beach in comfort, drink in hand. We spent hours just sitting on the deck and patio watching the birds, even saw an eagle! There were a couple glitches with key cards and missing batteries but all I had to do was call and Vacasa took care of it.

The house was absolutely lovely. It was very well stocked, and the shuttle to the beach was super convenient. Vacasa was very expedient when we had to call with a minor issue, and they sent someone to the house in less than 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this home and would definitely stay here again.

Location. Decor set up of the house was well done and relaxing and made us feel right at home. Beds were super comfortable. Had games, puzzles, scenes in porch. Directions for arrival and departure were clear. Quick and polite responses to questions. Sweet amenities, sweet house. Take note: no staples (sugar, any spices -s&p, one dishwasher soap, ...)

We loved Everything!
William M.Jun 2020
We enjoyed the home and the beach club but Vacasa was difficult to communicate with. We called their office for 2 days and waited on hold for HOURS before we were able to talk with a representative.
William, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced when attempting to get a hold of us. Our guest services team is experiencing an inordinate number of calls and messages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, leading to longer wait times over the phone. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
