About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This gorgeous ocean front home is in the perfect place for an incredible beach vacation. The home is just 7 years new with unbelievable ocean views from every room.

Feels like Marine Land. Porpoise jumping year round, whale watching in the winter months right from your private decks. Great shelling beach year round.

Extra bonus of spectacular intracoatal, marshes and waterway views. Historic St. Augustine can be seen from the top balcony.

As you sip your coffee, you'll see the sun rise. As you sip your cocktails, you'll enjoy the fabulous sunsets.

The sleeping accommodations include: 3 oceanfront bedrooms (king, queen, queen) each with a private bath plus a loft with 2 twin beds and fabulous view.

There is also a full pull out couch in the living room. All come with top quality linens and mattresses.

The kitchen is a custom designer kitchen with high end cabinets and appliances. Fully stocked with every cooking utensil, cookware, and serving items needed for your stay.

The expansive living room has incredible ocean views through a full picture window as you lounge on the designer couches. The large TV has cable and a DVD player to enjoy in the evening.

A two car garage, laundry room and outside shower just steps from the beach make this home a comfortable place to vacation.

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

Amazing home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Most memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

a little piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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:)

Great for a girl's weekend!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Heron's Nest

  • 3 of 5

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's 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
