Overview

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.

Coffee with the Bald Eagles

  • 4 of 5
Heron Now is a wonderful bayside getaway! Private, comfortable and a rental you will just immediately feel at home in. Saw Bald Eagles three of the days we were there; great horned owl sat in the pines one morning while we had our coffee (squirrel in the palmetto below was quite relieved and verbal once he left). The great room is open and with comfortable furnishings. Owner gave wonderful information on the home and area and an added plus is the home is environmentally friendly; down to offering recycling bins (love it) and info. We really hope to stay in this lovely home again. We have stayed on St. George for 30 some odd years; always on the beach but I'm a bayside fan now!

Nice, private location for home for good family getaway

  • 4 of 5
Our family enjoyed our time at Heron Now. As described on the website it is in a lovely private location on St. George Island. Good for family, great value for the price, not fancy. While there are other houses nearby there are many trees and it is also near a marsh, giving it much more space than most of the other homes we saw on the island. The kitchen is well stocked. The owner's guide to local attractions and recommended beach areas helped us hit the highlights. The beach is lovely and not crowded. Some of our highlights were seeing an otter playing in the marsh pond in view of the living room windows on the last day, also every night at dusk tree frogs and geckos started moving on to the windows to get the bugs attracted by the lights; our kids loved this! We saw interesting sea life every day. Locally I would recommend the ANERR nature center across the bridge from St. George and the Gulf Specimen Aquarium in Panacea, definitely worth the trip. Had a close up encounter with a sea turtle there. The water pressure at the house was great for nice, hot showers. You should be aware that if you tend to run warm I wouldn't recommend visiting in summer as the AC cannot be set below 74 degrees. Fans helped. Also, be aware that the third bedroom is a loft without a door that closes. Overall I would definitely recommend this property. The owner and local manager were both great to work with and helpful, the setting is lovely, and my kids and mother in law and husband and I had a great week.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your time at Heron Now. Thanks for your lovely and detailed review.

Two clarifications for Homeaway readers. The third bedroom occupies the entire upper level living space. It is the master bedroom in that has it the second largest room in home, has its own bathroom , and a large step-in closet. With the open air contemporary styling of the house with high vaulted ceiling, the space does not have a door. But the configuration does allow for privacy. Secondly, if at any point,as a guest ,you are not comfortable in Heron Now, including the functioning of the AC, please contact me and I will address the issue immediately.

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.
