Guestbook comments from the manager
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.
