St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR 2 BAHouse With Unique Tranquil and Natural Setting

Heron Now is a comfortable bayfront home located on beautiful Apalachicola Bay, St. George Island, Florida.

The large deck offers sea breezes and a private, panoramic overlook of the bay and estuarine reserve. You have the same view from inside the house and even from the updated kitchen.

Heron Now has the best of both vacation worlds: the gulf coast beaches and the beautiful bayside marsh. The spacious gulf coast beach is only 1.5 blocks away via easy public access. There you can swim in the waves, fish the surf, or lounge among the sand castles. Heron Now adjoins the bayside world of the Apalachicola National Estuarine Reserve which provides one mile of undeveloped bayshore waterfront to explore by foot or boat. Bring your canoes and kayaks (or rent locally) because there is bay access. Bring your fishing gear because the bay is full of sea trout, redfish, and mullet . Bring your camera and binoculars because every hike or paddle will bring a new discovery.

Amenities:: -two queens, two twins

-TV with cable and dvd

- kitchen with new cookware and appliances

-washer/dryer

-binoculars

-extensive library of birding, plant, shell, reptile, and fish guides and other naturalist topics

Activities:: George Island is a world class birding, naturalist, and fishing

destination. Experience it from the deck of Heron Now, or walk the adjoining

reserve or nearby beach, or use Heron Now as base for eco-adventures to

nearby natural features such as St George Island State Park, St. Vincent

National Wildlife Refuge, and Apalachicola National Forest.

The nearby town of Apalachicola is a Victorian fishing port which offers

upscale restaurants and walking tours of its Victorian houses. The town and

the surrounding area are featured in two National Geographic books: Guide

to Small Town Escapes and America's Hidden Corners.

Natural surroundings

Really nice place surrounded bye trees and birds. The view is perfect and relaxing. Easy walking to the bay and to the sea. We enjoyed the quietness and the nature of the house and the island. It expected all our needs.

Perfect location and wonderfully clean and equipped!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed a week with my wife and kids, including twin two year old boys. Equipped well for families, plenty of space, and the kitchen was well stocked with the necessary equipment. Don't worry that it's not beachfront; the beach is a 200 yard walk away and there's NO traffic around your house. Being bay front is better, you get to see the wildlife up close. The binoculars came in particularly handy with the tidal pond just out back. You're also far enough out from the main drag that there's no noise from others, which is great with small children at night. We spent every day but one on the beach, either playing or fishing (supper!). The suggestions made by the owner were extremely helpful, and saved the rainy day for us. All in all a perfect stay.

old florida is alive

  • 5 of 5
This was our 1st ever trip to st george island and it wont be our last by no means. Old florida is back with the atmosphere of st george island. Family friendly places and the people are very friendly and welcoming. A truely relaxing vacation on floridas best beach and bay area. Heron now is a great place to stay and has the best location we found. Beach is very accessible by a short walk and bayside area behind house is great for a relaxing evening away from it all. Natures all around you at heron now and st george island. Simply amazing is all we can say about heron now and st george island.

We loved the location and quiet, peaceful setting. Heron Now is clean and comfortable. Lots of extras, including Owner's suggestions for outings and dining. Very environmentally friendly. Walking distance to both Bay and Gulf beaches. Saw eagles everyday! Enjoyed kayaking with Journeys.

Heron Now Best on St. George Island

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a month at Heron Now. Loved the home and location. We biked all around St. George and thought "our" place was the most desirable with the constant changing view of nature in the salt pond out the back windows- truly a tranquil, natural setting. Just a short walk to the wonderful ocean beach. The home was so comfortable, as well as clean - and always sunny on one or the other decks! Thank you Heron Now owners for sharing your lovely home.
