The view was beautiful, it was clean and even cleaning supplies were top brands.
The only thing the house needs is a overall painting and changing plastic curtains which had mold growing.
Thank you for choosing our home, Paula! We appreciate your feedback and are glad you had a good stay. Our local team confirms the house will be painted in the future but in the meantime, we are planning on doing a pressure wash. The curtains have been removed and replaced with new ones. We hope to see you soon!

It's got it where it counts. Plenty of space for family of 7. Plenty of linens and the heat worked well as temps where in the high 30's at night. Short drive to St Augustine and Publix and the beach is so close you will think you are on a cruise ship when the tide comes in.

If your number one priority in booking a home is to be DIRECTLY on the beach, this house is for you!! Depending on the tides, you will literally watch the waves come up to the deck stairs. The views are amazing and it very comfortably accommodates 12 adults.
But, if your number one priority is cleanliness, you might want to look somewhere else. The property is definitely older and could use some work,
the attention to detail in housekeeping is lacking, and the supply of pots and pans is sketchy.
Having said that, we have booked this house three times. We have immensely enjoyed each stay and will be returning! We call it 'Our White Heron'.

Location, clean, comfortable! Great place for up to 4 couples and 2 couples with kids or whatever!. Plenty of room and well equipped. Right on beach on high tide water is at foot of steps! Would stay again!

Beds and furniture very comfortable. Great layout , every room has ocean view.
Max A.Aug 2020
This house is ideal for any family! We’ve been coming back here over 8 years and absolutely love it! Downstairs area great for cooking out and watching the ocean. Love it!
Herme P.Jul 2020
All what you need! The house is not a palace but has all what you need. The beach access is amazing and the grill works like an oven!
Casey D.Jul 2020
The layout of this home is amazing. Two rooms with a shared bath on both sides of the house. Each bedroom has an amazing view of the ocean. The beach was basically empty every day! The outdoor furniture on the top deck could use some updating, but the bottom portion of the outside space was amazing! Towels & blankets were plentiful! The kitchen was very well stocked as well. Having the beach basically at the back door was amazing! The shower at the top of the steps was a nice feature. The home needs a good deep clean, but it wasn’t horrible by any means.

Loved being right in the beach. Slice of heaven!
David M.Mar 2020
Great beach house in all respects. Only down sides were: Lack of kettle, Balcony would be safer with gate to steps,
Hi, David! We have advised the owner of your concerns regarding the kettle and balcony so they can consider any next steps they would like to take. Thank you!
Ruth L.Mar 2020
Loved interior design, roominess, cleanliness, towels, linens, closet space, beach. My only suggestions would be to update outdoor deck furniture.

This house.... my family (includes 4 teenagers and 2 adult children) was so very happy here! Anyone with teenagers know how hard it is to make them happy. They all said this was there favorite beach house we have ever stayed in. The area is fantastic, quiet and away from everything, yet close enough to be downtown within 15 minutes. We spent one day exploring downtown and the rest of our time was spent enjoying the house and the amazing beach. We all went to sleep with sounds of crashing waves( which can be heard from inside with all doors and windows closed). We definitely plan on coming back to White Heron in the future. See you soon

Four HUGE bedrooms and a view from the kitchen. Seashells everywhere on a near private beach. 1 mile from gas station. 5 mins to Publix. Sounds of the waves are amazing.

Fantastic! Everything we had hoped for and more!
Max A.Sep 2019
We loved being right on the beach and also having down below to cook out and lay in our hammocks. House very clean and perfect for our family. We had stayed here 3 times for a month and enjoyed every minute of being there. Highly recommend!!

The location and house layout are great.
Eight adults one child on a family vacation and we had a great time.
My only reason for not giving this house five stars. Is at averaging out at $600 a night. There were several little maintenance issues that disappointed me.
But we will probably return to this rental.

The location and beach are excellent.
Kyle S.Apr 2019
This was the best part of our vacation. The house was cute and comfortable and the beach was spectacular! Between the pelicans and dolphins right outside our back door, the seashells and fun in the sand, this was just what we were looking for and so much more.
Paulina M.Mar 2019
When we arrived the house was clean and well appointed with fluffy bath towels and a washer & dryer. The floor plan is perfect. One open great room/kitchen in middle and two bedrooms with a full bath on either end. The double sliders provide a breathtaking view and the deck overlooking the ocean has plenty of seating. Hope to return!

We really enjoyed our stay at the White Heron Beach House, I just wish it would have lasted longer. The scenery from inside the home through the glass patio doors is majestic and the living room has a rustic but modern distressed wood that I've not seen anywhere else. The house really makes you feel cozy, comfortable, and serene. Even though we were in St. Augustine for a wedding, the best times wee spent in the home and downstairs viewing the ocean underneath the deck that provides shade, space for over 10 people, and a grill for barbequing. We really had a good time and look forward to coming back for a longer stay next time.
Thank you for the memories!

Awesome views and comfortable.

View was great. Cooking pots and pans could be replaced.
Jerald B.Oct 2018
Loved being right on the beach and being able to walk with our dog for miles. The deck furniture with the thick cushions made it extra nice for wave watching. Very relaxing.
