We had a wonderful time at this home for a Christmas getaway with family! It’s close to lots and the beach view is fantastic! We loved it.

The home is lovely. Upon check-in we had issues because we were not provided with the code to the lock box, only the code to the keyed lock itself. It took 15 more than minutes to get a response on the phone as to what we were supposed to do. The main reason we chose this property was because it had an elevator and we had eight 74 year old women, several of which had severe knee issues. There were no instructions anywhere on anything in the house. We eventually figured out how to use the elevator, but it only worked the first day. There were a couple of other issues that were responded to immediately and for that we were most grateful. The kitchen was beautiful, just not as well equipped as many properties I have used. The view was exceptional and the property was very clean. The elevator was probably the main issue and that was almost nonnegotiable for my group.
Manager response:

The house was beautiful, and has everything you need to make your stay memorable. Access to the beach was just steps out the door. The beach is very wide and allows room for the kids activities. The elevator made moving between floors perfect. We had a great time and are already looking forward to our next beach trip.

Herons Hideaway is centrally located within a easy walk to the CB Boardwalk area and several restaurants. Direct beach access could not be easier. The layout of the house provides good space for a large group without being cramped. We would be happy to stay again.

Great location, 1 minute walk to the Veggie Wagon, 8 minutes to the boardwalk. Seems like a recent remodel, well appointed. Though bring a colander, cheese grater, and casserole dish if you’ll need them while you’re there.

This home was comfortable and perfectly located. The furniture was very comfortable; including the beds, which were heavenly.
The well appointed kitchen made it a breeze to enjoy home cooked meals after a full day on the beach.
The convenience of the private beach entrance right outside the back door made for a hassle free time with transporting paraphernalia to and from the beach each day.
This will definitely be a future vacation home for our family.
