Exceeded Expectations

  • Submitted: Jan 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The Blue Heron met and exceeded our expectations. We brought two families to stay with 5 small children who need room to run, play, and make noise. This house accommodated all of that and then some. The walk to the beach was shorter than expected and made emergency bathroom trips for the kids very manageable. The short walk to town meant we could all venture out without bringing multiple vehicles. The pool was the perfect size for a family with children and we had no worries about safety. In fact, three of our kids officially learned to swim at the Blue Heron during our stay. We enrolled them in swimming lessons as soon as we returned home to capitalize on the enthusiasm they found in the OBX & all are flourishing. The biggest surprise of the house - and this isn't featured prominently in the description - is the area underneath the house. What a bonus space! Porch swing, sandbox, single swings, hot tub, seating and eating area, hopscotch, hammock, and outdoor shower! We made good use of this space daily - it sheltered us from several summer storms while allowing us to remain outside and active. It's the perfect staging area for pre and post beach trips. And it allowed us to get the kids some meals without dragging them too far from the pool. One other note - we received a personal call from the owner during our stay just to check in on our satisfaction. That was greatly appreciated, a very nice touch. We will be back to stay at the Blue Heron.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Heron. The home was welcoming and comfortable with nice views of the ocean to one side and of the sunset on the other. The location was perfect for us - we loved we could walk to the beach within a few minutes and to the town of Duck within 5-10. The home had many features we enjoyed, not the least of which was the private pool. The hammock, swings, basketball, hopscotch and bean bag toss were extras our family quite enjoyed. All was clean inside and well maintained outside. The home is described and shown well online and our expectations we definitely met. We would recommend this home to another family and would look to stay here again ourselves in the future.

Wonderful location

  • Submitted: Apr 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
As a group of 3 families this home allowed us enough space. The location is excellent - nice view of the water, quiet street and family friendly. The kids (and a few adults) enjoyed taking the bikes down to the village of Duck and rode around the street as well. If you have never stayed in Duck before, it is charming with lots of nooks and crannies to explore.
The beds in this home were the most comfortable I have ever experienced away from home. The decor is nice but starting to get a little dated. The home was very clean and the kitchen well-stocked.
The only thing that kept this from being an excellent review was that the hot tub was out of order for the majority of our stay and that was the one amenity we were looking for. The management company has been responsive and we hope to return some day.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay however we are sorry that the hot tub was not functioning. We hope that you come back to Elan again.
