We knew nothing about the area and wanted a place quiet and away from the hustle and bustle from the event we were working with. River Wilderness Waterfront Villas was just the place. The only disadvantage is that it was 45 minutes away but what is not 45-60 minutes away in this area. We originally booked our villa using a... More

Very good value for Price relation! Do not expect luxury, but still fully OK and in very Close vincinity of all airboat rides. Jack's airboat ride booking is just next to it! Balcony is fully equpiped with mosquito avoidance and view is excellent. For a one or two day stay perfect, for a week stay rather not proposed. Late night... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. It is a perfect place to stay while fishing the Everglades. The boat ramp was easy to use and get to. The place was clean all the appliances worked. Couldn't give any reason not to stay here again, just perfect!

We rented a one and two bedroom villa with our kids and dog. The villas were clean, spacious and had all of the amenities we needed. The staff and extremely gracious and accommodating. I would definitely stay again!

When we arrived they said our booking with booking.com could not be found. We had asked for a 2 bed room. Anyway the lovely lady on reception gave us 2 rooms for the price of one which was what we were supposed to have paid when booked. All rooms are up a flight of stairs so be wary if anyone... More

It's on the water, you can tie your boat up at their dock while you stay, they have internet, Jeane will help you with anything you wanna know--and if you're looking for the best deal--call her-don't book online.

My wife and I have definitely experienced better. I will start with the positives. This is definitely a rustic place. It has a nice water view of the canal in the back. The Wi-Fi is free.

The villas were very nice and clean. We had a one bedroom, which also included a living room, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom. The large, screened in back porch was great to sit outside in the evening. The villa is within walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to additional restaurants and attractions. The villas are elevated, so parking... More
