Perfect location, well appointed, nice lay out and 3 great rooms.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. Location is perfect. It's an easy walk to beach and pools but because it is not one of the main streets that access the beach or pools it is quieter and more secluded than some of the houses in the neighborhood. It is an easy bike ride to Seaside. House is well appointed. We put our bikes around the back of the house. It has an excellent sound system throughout the house. The upstairs deck gets the sun in the morning. Great place to have your coffee or breakfast. We would return for sure!

Great Trip, Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful beach vacation at Follow the Heron. There were 6 adults and 4 children and the set up was perfect. The large closets are perfect for a pack n play for babies. The big kids loved the bunk room area. The favorite area for us was the screened in porch upstairs off the bunkroom. We spent our mornings out there having breakfast and reading on the porch swing and rocking chairs. So very relaxing. There is a storage unit in back with all sorts of beach "extras". We really enjoyed the large kids had a great time on that. The beach towels were great and I wish the website would have alerted us to those being provided in the house. We would have left the 12 beach towels we hauled to FL at home....but it was no biggie. Great house, great stay.

Just right

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Follow The Heron for a weekend with 4 teenagers and it was just right for our group. The layout of the house is ideal and it's located close to the beach and a quick bike ride or drive to plenty of restaurants. The listing description was very accurate and all the amenities were provided as described.

A Great Time Was Had By All At Follow The Heron

  • 5 of 5

To followup on the title above this home was a perfect fit for our three families which included grandparents , parents and young children. The three master bedrooms with king beds and private baths were perfect for the adults and the upstairs children's room with bunk beds and sleeper sofa worked great for the kids.

The home was nicely furnished , well decorated and very comfortable. The children particularly liked the creative wall art of the friendly octopus in the dining room. We guessed it was made out of reeds or sea grass.

The beach was an easy walk from the home and it was made even easier with the use of the extra large cart / wagon provided by the property management company. This proved to be most helpful in hauling everything but the kitchen sink to the beach on a daily basis. As a dad and one of the "porters" I would like to know where to buy one for future visits.

The community pool was an even shorter walk and proved to be a popular option for the younger children.

The location of this home in Summer's Edge is a definite plus for families. It's away from the traffic on 30A but convenient to everything such as restaurants , Seaside , etc.

There are many fine restaurants in the area but one in particular our families have always enjoyed is the Donut Hole. They have a new location close by where 30A East intersects with US 98. Great breakfasts and donuts. Our children and grandchildren loved their donuts on more then one occasion.

If our need for more bedrooms doesn't grow we'll definitely be back to Follow The Heron in the future and we'll be sure to recommend this property to our family and friends.

Our thanks to the owners for sharing their home and allowing our families to make many fond memories there.
