About Bob & Meroe Wheatley
Wilmington has been our home for 20 years. We have spent many years traveling and enjoying vacation rentals, B&Bs and small hotels all over the world. Through these experiences we know all the little details that make a great vacation memorable. We want to be sure you have a wonderful stay at Heron's Nest. As active retirees we love our home here in Wilmington, our vibrant historical downtown area and beautiful Wrightsville Beach.
Bob & Meroe Wheatley purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Bob & Meroe Wheatley chose Wilmington
We love the casual coastal vibe of Wilmington and the beautiful old historic downtown. We wanted a home that was close enough to the white sand and turquoise waters of Wrightsville beach to walk there daily. We loved the big back yard with an old live oak and this great house with the potential to have room for our growing crop of grandchildren and friends.

Everything we could want or need was provided as amenities. Hosts were welcoming and friendly. Would recommend highly. Clean and beautifully decorated.
My husband and I stayed at Herons Nest for 5 nights. We have stayed at MANY vrbo's. I cannot compliment the owners (ok-it's really the wife) for how detail oriented the accommodations are. We did take advantage of the grill a few nights. Your outdoor eating area is secluded from the mail house yard.The kitchenette area is better stocked than most full house rental I have stayed in. A basket of snacks and beverages were left as a welcome. The K cup holder was stocked. I have never seen that!. There was even a basket with filter to Keurig to use other coffees if you desire(which I used, as well!) The bathroom is tastefully done. Beautiful subway tiles, ample storage and nice plush towels. Location was perfect to get around. Would definitely come back to NC and stay here.
Clean beautiful studio. Convenient to beach. Great hosts.
Heron's Nest is a beautiful rental. The owners were lovely to deal with as well. Very accommodating. If you are looking for a respite in Wilmington, look no further. It is very close to Wrightsville Beach.
Very pretty and updated place!
Herons Nest is a lovely but small suite in a nice neighborhood of Wilmington. Our hosts Bob & Meroe we’re very gracious. The only downsides were lack of unsecured Wi-Fi access, inability to control our own thermostat/temperature and lack of purified water considering Wilmington’s contaminated water supply. Beautiful accommodations nonetheless!!
Dear Patty and Nikki,
Thanks for your review. Our top priority is for all our guests to be comfortable and relaxed when they stay at Heron’s Nest. We do appreciate the positives, but have a few comments to help clarify the “downsides” noted for future guests.
1. We provide free WIFI as a “guest network”, which is the same level of network service you would receive at a Hilton Hotel; with a daily fee. Our guest network is not a “secure” network, but this has never been an issue before for any of our guests, whether they were here on business or for vacation. However, just in case, our listing has been modified to reflect this detail.
2. The studio apartment is attached to our home, and as such, shares a whole house heating/ac system. When we talked during check-in we discussed the temperature controls and encouraged you to let us know at any time if you were too hot or too cold. We would have been happy to try to make you as comfortable as possible; but never received any indication from you of any problem. Perhaps the temperature wasn’t an issue, you just would have liked to have your own control. Previous guests have not indicated any issues with temperature control.
3. We provide over 2 quarts of bottled water at check-in for all guests. These were stocked in your fridge and in the free welcome basket we provide to all guests. While there has been some publicity in the area about water quality, Wilmington city tap water has been tested, and has not been found to be “contaminated” - there is no health ban on drinking or any other household use of our city water supply. So this is the very same water supply which would have been provided at any hotel in the area, and you would have been charged for each one of the bottles of drinking water which were provided here for free.
Thanks again for all of your feedback and we hope you enjoyed your visit to our area.
Very clean and quiet location, great place and if in the area again I will look to book here first!
