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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
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.
