Property description

Heron Now is a comfortable bayfront home located on beautiful Apalachicola Bay, St. George Island, Florida.

The large deck offers sea breezes 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 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 the 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. 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.


Amenities:: -two queens, two twins
-TV with cable and dvd
- kitchen with new cookware and appliances
-washer/dryer
-binoculars
-extensive library of birding, plant, shell, reptile, and fish guides and other naturalist topics

Activities:: 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.
