House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps
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.

Another great stay
What a great place!
The house itself was perfect for our needs - not too big but plenty of space and nice and warm. Our bed was comfortable, and there was a cot and high chair which was really useful. It was absolutely spotless when we turned up and the owner rang us on our first day to make sure we had everything we needed which was a lovely touch.
I would not hesitate to recommend Heron Now to anyone, but probably older couples and couples with kids especially, as the island is definitely a quiet place to relax, or let the children explore.
