About the Property

This 4 Bedroom Home is Comfortable and Fully Equipped For Fun!

The 'Green Heron' was named for the many green herons that can be seen cruising the canal for their dinner. The views include the intracoastal, the ocean and fantastic sunsets from the sunset/cocktail deck. You can launch your boat nearby and bring it around to your private dock for easy access to fishing, clamming and water skiing.

All the bedrooms have sliding doors to decks with lounging furniture. The lower master has a private bath. The 2 other lower bedrooms have 2 twins each that can be connected to form king-size beds. The upper master has an over-sized closet area that has a portable crib in it. Linens can be rented for $75/week.

The kitchen is completely furnished with all utensils and amenities. There is seating at the breakfast bar as well as at the dining table that seats 8. The living room furniture is comfortable and allows spectacular views. The house is equipped with games, movies and books. All 4 bedrooms have tv's and seating and 2 have computer desks. WIFI is throughout the house! There are plenty of places nearby to rent kayaks, bicycles and surf boards.

The house is located on a quiet road that dead-ends on the waterway. The beach is at the other end of the road with it's own crossover. There is no limit to the fun you can have on our beautiful island. Come join us!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: As avid boaters and beach goers my family had this house built to give the most comfort and fun for weekly renters. Launch your boat when you arrive and dock it out front ready to use.

Why the Owner Chose Holly Ridge, NC, USA:
This property on the canal was a Queens Grant to my Great Uncle Harvey Jones' family and I spent every summer visiting him on this Island. He owned and operated the Dolphin Pier and many locals have fond memories of fishing there for decades . It was eventually destroyed and the property which spanned from the Ocean to Hwy 17 in Hampstead was developed. The area has a lot of history and one of the Towers from Operation Bumblebee in World War II is visible from the windows.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The ease of access to the beach or boat or relaxing decks are one of the nicest features of this house. Whatever your mood, there is something to suit it! And did I mention, the views of the sunset over the sound are incredible?!
