The sound side of the island is a quieter, gentler part of the beach -- great for families. Heron House is a happy house, filled with happy memories. Come make some of your own. From your chair on the back deck, follow herons and egrets stepping along the shore, fish skipping across the water, ospreys and pelicans diving for dinner. Listen to breezes rustling through the trees, birds chattering with each other, water lapping against docks. Marvel at spectacular sunsets. Or mosey down to the dock and drop in a fishing line or crab pot -- and if you're really good and really patient, at low tide, catch your crabs with a line, a chicken back, and a net. Or launch a Heron House boat. 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 soak up the beautiful views from inside, as you gaze out the expansive windows. You'll feel as if you could 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 a tennis court, 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. The comforts of home, the serenity of salt marshes, a quiet lagoon, and gentle breezes all welcome you to Heron House.

Best Vacation House EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Heron House last summer and it was amazing. There were 11 of us that went, my aunt and 2 cousins,my cousin's girlfriend, my grandparents, my parents and my two brothers. There were plenty of beds and everyone had plenty of room to spread out. The decks on the back of the house were spacious and had plenty of chairs and tables so you could enjoy the wonderful views. The sound and dock out back kept all 4 boys entertained all week. We went crabbing off the dock and caught lots of crabs and even a couple shrimp. They were delicious! There were 4 canoes/kayaks that we used and plenty of life jackets. The house had everything you could possibly want, both for the kitchen and for outside. There are plenty of movies and games too.The community pool was wonderful and the walk to the beach was not long at all but you do have to cross the main road. There is parking at the pool (beach front) but not much so you might not get a spot if its busy. The beach was beautiful! I loved this house and would recommend it to anyone with a large group.
