About the property

Heron Is A 3 Bedroom, Waterfront Condo That Is Very Comfortable And Relaxing

The best of both worlds. Heron Landing is located on the lagoon were the sunsets are beautiful, but you are also just a few steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, with white sandy beaches and clear blue water, many hours of fun can be had enjoying the Alabama beaches and surf.

You are only minutes away from golfing, deep sea and inland fishing, shopping and the Wharf. You are also just minutes away from grocery stores, restaurants and sports bars.

Heron Landing is unique in that you have a pier that is accessible for fishing, crabbing or just sitting and relaxing.

This is not your typical high rise condo. You will feel like you are in your very own Beach house but without the extra costs.

Two of the bedroom have direct access to their own private balcony, and the dinning/living room area has direct access to the main balcony with a beautiful view of the lagoon. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit sleeps 6-8 comfortably, and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare your favorite home-cooked recipes - but with an extra ingredient... an awesome view. Each bedroom has its own TV/DVD , and there is a BlueRay player in the living room. And of course, local phone service, wifi internet and standard cable are included.

We know you will enjoy your stay!

About Kat Mayer

There are four owners, two of us are siblings, Bill, Sue, George and Kat. Bill and I (siblings) were actually born in Alabama, then moved to New Orleans when we were young. Sue is from Georgia and moved to N.O. when she was young as well. George is a N.O. boy. We live in New Orleans and have six kids (and one grandchild!) between us.

Kat Mayer purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Kat Mayer chose Alabama

We love to spend time on the beaches of Alabama, so we decided to purchase a property that we could enjoy personally and share with others. Heron provided the ability to enjoy the beach, but also have fun in the shallow back lagoon with water sports like kayaking, boating, tubing, fishing, and crabbing.

What makes this townhome unique

Our condo features three bedrooms, three full baths, and three balconies with great views. Living area features a 42' HD TV/DVD, Wireless High Speed Internet access, and a Queen sleeper sofa. The kitchen is well equipped and also includes a laundry closet with a stack washer and dryer.

Two of the bedrooms have direct access to a balcony. Each bedroom is equipped with a TV/DVD, and radio/alarm clock.

The main is balcony great for morning coffee or evening cocktails, and at the foot of the balcony stairs is direct access to the grassy area and pier.

Excellent condo...great lagoon property

  • 5 of 5

This condo is right on the lagoon. Great views and unbeatable access to the water. Great for kayaks, paddle boards, and just playing in the water. The condo was in great condition and had everything we needed. This was the ideal rental for us!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. With the Lagoon and Gulf both steps away, it was the perfect location for our family - my parents, husband, five year-old son, and me. In the house, we all had our own space to retreat to for rest and sleep. We enjoyed being a little bit away from the crowd, but still convenient to drive to dinner. Also, it was very fun to watch the resident heron. We rented a kayak for some fun on the lagoon as well. The sunsets were amazing - definitely a cotton candy sky! We highly recommend and hope to be back soon.

Heron Landing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, close to ocean, friendly neighbors that live here. Beds were comfortable. Back balcony was great and very relaxing looking out to the lagoon. Unit needs a little TLC, long term renters would enjoy more comfortable furniture though in the living room. A list of TV stations available through their cable provider would also be a good addition for long term rentals.

We had a few small issues and owner was always available, the issues were resolved quickly. Great place to stay.

Great Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Herons Landing. The condo was very comfortable and had a great deck area overlooking the lagoon. There were plenty of things to do or you could just relax on the beach. There was lots of great local seafood and many good restaurants to choose from. We will definitely be coming back!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

It had everything we needed for a great family vacation. The lagoon was right out our back door and across the street was the ocean. We plan to come back. We couldn't have asked for a more ideal location. We rented a kayak, paddle board and two bicycles and we were set for the week. The grandchildren fished off of the pier and fed the fish to the local heron.

The property was perfect for what we wanted. We had trouble with one of the bath tubs not draining, but maintenance fixed the problem immediately. Our bedrooms were bright and spacious. My only suggestion would be to paint the living room a bright color. It was rather dark.

Thank you for helping us create family memories!

Great place to stay for an excellent price

  • 5 of 5

I took 5 high school senior girls here for a week long senior get away after graduation. We enjoyed it very much. The girls stayed mostly upstairs in the two bedrooms, and I stayed in the one downstairs. I slept perfectly, and they said they did too. The beds were very comfortable. The view and convenience of having the lagoon right out our back door was wonderful. We ate on the deck overlooking the lagoon most mornings and evenings. It was a very short walk up the driveway and across the street to the gulf, which was not crowded at all. It was basically perfect. When we got there I had a question about unlocking the door to get in, and then about the blinds in the living room. The owner was very gracious and helpful. I would for sure stay again. It's a very short drive to everything in Gulf Shores, and Walmart is less than 10 minutes away. Perfect for grocery shopping. We cooked most of our meals and ate there. The three bedrooms and three baths were exactly as described. We didn't use the sofa couch as a bed, but could have if we had needed it.
