$884/WK 4/26-5/17 : PANORAMIC BAYFRONT HOME 1.5 BLOCKS FROM TOP RANKED BEACH

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.

Heron Now Best on St. George Island

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
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.

Heron Now suited us very well - simple and uncluttered but comfortable and well equipped...We loved the view from the deck, living room, kitchen, and bedroon.. The binoculars and library are a great asset.

Memories Were Made

  • Submitted: Dec 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Memories were made and treasures found! We had a wonderful family experience...Bottle-nosed dolphins were spotted many days along with the bobbing heads of loggerhead turtles. We had the opportunity to watch a biologist and his intern record a turtle nest which ended up as a false crawl... still appreciated the rare chance to learn about Florida fauna and natural communities...What a view you have here.

Loved Every Minute

  • Submitted: Dec 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We are sad to go tomorrow. We have loved every minute here...We loved seeing the dolphins out the backside of the living room... Just watching the boys(age 10 and 13) play in the water was priceless... Hope to come back next year.
