Notes:

  • To our previous guests, please note that we now have king beds in three bedrooms, and two bedrooms have two twins each. There are no queen beds. To those unfamiliar with Heron House, we will be happy to send you more pics. The comforts of home, the serenity of salt marshes, a quiet lagoon and gentle breezes all welcome you to Heron House. We invite you to kick back, unwind, and create some special memories. The sound side of the island is a softer, gentler part of the beach. From your chair on the back deck of Heron House, you can follow herons and egrets stepping along the shore, fish skipping across the water, ospreys and pelicans diving for dinner. You can listen to breezes rustling through the trees, birds chattering with each other, water lapping against docks. You can marvel at spectacular sunsets. Or you can mosey down to the dock and drop in a fishing line or crab pot -- or if you're really good and really patient, at low tide, you can catch your crabs with a line, a chicken back, and a net. Or you can launch a Heron House boat. You can rock or swing on the front porch, picnic on the lower deck, or go to the upper deck to sun or enjoy a panoramic view of the lagoon, Permuda Island, and the waterway. Or you can soak up the beautiful views from inside, as you gaze out the expansive windows. When you walk through the front door into the living room, you feel you can almost reach out and touch the water. There are TVs/VCRs/DVDs, video library, stereo, games, books, and toys that will entertain on a lazy indoor day or in the evening. When you wander over to the beach, it's only a three to four minute walk because the island is so narrow here. Look for sharks' teeth, which are not found at most beaches, but can be plentiful on Topsail. There are a community pool and tennis courts, 3-6 minute walk. Also, there's one golf course after another between here and Wilmington, and a first-rate course, North Shore, about a 5-minute drive north, just over the high-rise bridge. And there are the water sports, with rentals available on the island for all sorts of equipment. This is a happy house, filled with happy memories. Come make some of your own.
