Heron Now is a comfortable bayfront home located on St George
Island overlooking Apalachicola Bay. The large deck offers seabreezes and a private panoramic overlook of the bay and estuarine reserve. You have the same view from inside the house and even from the kitchen.
Heron Now has the best of both vacation worlds: the gulf coast
beaches and the beautiful bayside marsh. The spacious nationally ranked 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 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. The
Reserve is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail. 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.
St. 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.
