Wonderful House on two different bodies of water

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better vacation rental for our three-generation family group of 11 than Herron House, perched on a narrow peninsula between a picturesque harbor full of bobbing boats and the rocky shore of the Inside Passage. The house has plenty of open living area, an expansive kitchen - beautifully equipped - terraces front and back, and beautiful views. The kids spent hours exploring the shoreline, and we all had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy watching the neighborhood eagles put on a show. Loads of places to explore by foot or by car.

Great ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great ladies weekend at Heron house. It was a wonderful, fully equipped home with everything we needed. Great time walking the beach, going to the marina, sipping wine on the deck, meeting some neighbours,etc. Location is amazing with stunning views, we can not wait to come back next year. Owners were wonderful and accommodating.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Heron House in Deep Bay and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The people in the Deep Bay community were friendly and helpful, and the cafe at the marina was a great place to eat and watch the 2 pair of eagles that were nesting nearby. The house was perfectly located to visit surrounding areas like Cathedral Grove, Pacific Rim, and the Campbell River area. Sunsets from the deck of the home were breathtaking. Groceries and spirits were available a short distance away in Bowser. There was a nice and relatively short hiking trail with a number of waterfalls nearby at Nile Creek....access to the trail is at the Nile Creek bridge on Hwy 19. Thank you John and Julie for sharing your lovely home. We will be back!

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This home at Deep Bay was so fitting for our family of 10, we loved the views of the water out the front & back along with the wrap around deck to enjoy...so unique. The change in the tide only added to the experience of being on the ocean, what a spot to have that first coffee of the day, thanks for sharing your home with us.

Family Spring Break vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently had the opportunity to spend a few days at the Heron House. We were a group of 13.....grandparents,our kids and grandkids. We found the house fit our needs perfectly; it was clean, comfortable, and spacious. We loved being close to the beach and we found plenty of things to do and explore in the surrounding area. Our hosts John and Julie we're welcoming , considerate and gracious. We would not hesitate for a moment to highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a vacation rental house for a larger group.

8 Ladies spent 3 nights having fun,celebrating an early Christmas and getting to know each other again..Such comfort and everything we needed.

Plenty of room so we all had space and Mother Nature granted our wish of a storm.

Friendly and accommodating hosts-they even gave us a Christmas Tree! Perfect!
