The home is equipped with beach towels, beach chairs and beach toys. Just grab your beach towel and enjoy the surf !!!

                            Great hospitality by the owner Deb and the home was perfect for our girls vacation. Lots of room for 7 of us and the house was very clean. You have a view of the ocean in every room and are steps away from the Atlantic, minutes to downtown yet away from all the tourists.

                            The best ocean front house we have ever rented!!! Owners go above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. Immaculately clean. Wonderful views from every window. Quiet beach and minutes from old downtown St. Augustine. This house has it all. Loved St Augustine, Great restaurants downtown and entertainment. Can't wait to come back again!!!

                            What a special ocean front home. Fabulous view from every room. Had a great week with the entire family. Great sunrises & sunsets. Had a blast cooking in the kitchen and watching the family splashing in the ocean. Great location. Just minutes to Old St. Augustine. Lots of great local restaurants. We can't wait to go back next year.

                            Wow! Our family of six stayed comfortably in this BEAUTIFUL home. Every detail of the home makes you feel pampered. From the comfortable beds to the spectacular views from every room, I was pleased with our choice. Just minutes from St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra so you can choose your fun. I would go for a pizza at "Benito's" on which is about five minutes from the house. "Capp's on the Water" is also a short drive. It is a rugged waterfront restaurant but the food & wine are delicious! I can't go without mentioning the shopping in Ponte Vedra! This will definitely be a repeat for us:)

                            Recently I had the chance to spend a fabulous girl's weekend at Herron's Nest. We had 4 generations of our college big sis/little sis in attendance. I think my favorite memory of the weekend was to be able to go to sleep in the master bedroom suite listening to the ocean. I've had beach houses in Gulf Shores, Alabama, Destin, Florida and Sanibel Island, Florida to name a few. Never have I had a house so close to the beach that you can hear the waves from the house! The house is carefully decorated in a true "Southern Living" comfort. Debbie and Joel, the owners, were responsive to any and every request we made.... although they were few because the house is so well appointed! I also loved being in the kitchen where a view to the east is the ocean and the view to the west is the intracoastal waterway. I highly recommend Herron's Nest for a great vacation.

                            This was a beautiful home with a beautiful view, however, the ad is very misleading. It indicates that it is a four-bedroom home with a den. The den/loft/fourth bedroom are the same room. It is a hallway between two bedrooms. There is no closet, no drawers and no blinds on the windows in this “fourth bedroom”. The kitchen is beautiful but it didn’t even have a kettle. The original ad had a gas/electric grill listed. When we arrived there wasn’t one at the home but Debbie’s husband delivered one the very next day after we asked her about the grill, so they were quick to respond to complaints. Debbie immediately changed the ad when we advised her of other things listed that were not in the house. Air conditioning is shown for this home, however, we were advised that we had to keep it set at 80 degrees. If you got a nice breeze, that was acceptable, but there were days that it was quite unbearable. We were advised that if we used too much air conditioning it would come out of our security deposit. The driveway is not depicted in the picture very well. It is very steep. We chose to park in the abandoned home next door because we scraped the bottom every time we drove our van in. It has two garages but one side is full of toys and chairs for the beach. We were invited to clean up the one side of the garage if we wished to park both vehicles in the garage. As for St. Augustine, it is the most amazing city you could ever visit. My daughter was married in St. Augustine and everything was perfect, from the venue, the florist, the photographer to the hairdresser/spa. We could not have been more pleased. We never had a bad meal at any of the restaurants we ate at. We rented seadoos at the Conch House Marina and a boat a few days later. We spent a day boating and it was wonderful. The people who ran the marina were very friendly and helpful. St. George Street is also a must see in St. Augustine. Anyone wanting to get married in St. Augustine or just visit, this is a city I would highly recommend, however, I would consider different accommodations than Heron’s Nest.

                            Owner response: Sorry you were disappointed with Heron's Nest. It seems there was some misunderstanding from the beginning. Orginal conservation was 6 adults from Canada ( three suites). I did not realize it was a family wedding. If anyone is needing 4th bedroom I describe the layout to make sure everyone is happy. Upon arrival I show them that one AC thermostat was placed in the wrong place and it will cool on 80 degrees because of sun. I have never had a request for a kettle but the kitchen is well equipped. It is difficult to keep a gas grill on the ocean but we always try and accomodate our guest. The home sits on top a dune and has parking for three cars. I always meet to help with driveway and parking. You have a lovely family. Sorry would were disappointed. We have had so many quests who have loved Heron's Nest and return. We love our home and others do. Sincerely- Debbie Herron

                            Absolutely perfect!! The Heron’s Nest was exactly as advertised…a rarity these days. Debbie is a breeze to work with and was available 24/7 for help. The house is right on the water; you can hear the waves from every window. It was very clean and well equipped. The kitchen is large and modern, and the bedrooms are airy and comfortably appointed. The location is perfect - minutes from St. Augustine, great restaurants close by (Cap’s and Beeches), and a new Publix less than a mile away. We will be back next year. Chris Heibel, Saint Luis, MO

                            Recently had the pleasure of spending four nights at this property and I cannot say enough about the experience. I live and work a very hectic life and needed some rest and relaxation with the family. This home provided just that. The house truly does sit right on the beach. Every room has a fantastic view - pictures do not do it justice. Listening to the ocean on any of the decks or through an open window was so soothing - almost mesmerizing. The location was great and the owners were very helpful in recommending special places to eat. Thank you for allowing us to experience St. Augustine at its finest. We do hope to come back - SOON!!!!

                            Warm and inviting home literally right on the ocean! Well appointed beach house that served our very needs of being right on the ocean. Once inside you will not want to leave. Spacious, warm colors, views from everywhere. I wish I could spend a month here. The sound of the waves, the openness of the house, all so wonderful. We are fortunate to have found this gem. I hope you do as well.

                            Absolutely the most BEAUTIFUL ocean view in St. Augunstine !!! The views of the ocean are breath-taking..... Fabulous house. We all had a wonderful time! We enjoyed the beach and the house is awesome and very roomy, and well equiped with everything we needed. .A short drive to Cap's Restaurant is a must, tho, for the sunset over the intercoastal. But the walk along the beach early morning for sunrise is even more memorable! This place has it all! It is truly magical. Every time we leave it's bittersweet for we're so happy to have made new memories there and so sad to have to go for we never want to leave! What an amazing getaway. We plan to make this a tradition every year. Thanks for sharing this special place.
