Heron House on Anna Maria Island is owned by the Heins Family.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1993

The Heins family have been coming to Anna Maria Island since 1990. At that time, Paul and his kids were living near Tampa and so Paul's mom and dad first purchased the single family house next door as a great family getaway and place to come during the cold winter months in New Jersey. When the duplex came on the market a few years later, they purchased it.

Heron House is located on beautiful Anna Maria Island where everything you need is so close...shopping, food stores, restaurants. You can walk or ride a bicycle. There is even a free trolley that runs every 30 minutes up and down the entire island. And most importantly, that beautiful beach is just down the path! This is the place to come if you want to relax...

We recently stayed at the side unit of the Heron House on Anna Maria. Paul and Diana keep the property in tip top shape with lots of amenities such as free use of bikes, beach toys and assorted beach accessories such as a cart for carrying stuff down to the sand. It is located on a quiet side street about only a part of 1 block until you are stepping on the sands of the beach. The unit we stayed in had all the amenities of home allowing the stay to basically seem like you were at your home...full kitchen, large rooms with plenty of space and nicely decorated back porch areas. As mentioned on another review there is a Publix and restaurants just 1/4 to 1/2 mile away in one of the main shopping areas of the island. We only stayed 2 nights but could easily see someone enjoying a long term stay at this property. Highly recommended.

Enjoyable Vacation and Great Place to Stay

My husband, son and I came to the Heron House last summer. We mainly came for a fishing vacation. The fishing was good. We loved the short walk to the beach. Paul and Diana were always very helpful. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we stayed an extra night! The pavers on the deck were great because you didn't track in a lot of sand. We stayed in the back apartment. It was very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen. We also liked the close location to Publix and the other shops. We would stay again if we visit the area.

Winding up another great vacation at the Heron House. Diana and Paul always make sure that my family is comfortable. The new pool is sparkling clean and warm.
Since we found it 3 years ago, we only stay at Heron House.

Relaxing and comfortable

My family and I stayed at the Heron House in June, 2011. It was a very relaxing experience. Just driving up to it, you can tell this is home away from home at its best. Paul & Diana are friendly and willing to answer all of your questions. Our comfort was a priority. The apartment was neat, clean and comfortably furnished. The beds are very comfortable, and they give you plenty of pillows. Just a few steps down a sandy path is the beautiful white sands beach where we seen Manatees in the mornings and took in the gorgeous sunsets in the evening. Shopping is within walking distance: grocery, restaurants, gifts, etc. Our family will definitely stay here again!
