4.24.10 As we enjoy our last morning coffee on the deck( it was a shame, we felt the need to set the alarm instead of letting the song birds wake us) we talk about how Heron Now will be a cherished memory. This being our family's first trio to Florida, we can't imagine a trip any better. The abundance of nature coupled with the scarcity; of people make St George Island a gem... We pray that Heron Now will continue to bless others with its serenity as much as it has us. Jefferson, IA

1.23-2.28.10 For years we have stayed in downtown Apalachicola and this year, as a change of pace , we chose Heron Now. This choice was a good one and provided the retreat we needed. Although a arctic front brought historic cold weather, the house provided a soothing warmth and hospitality with a view that inspired and entertained us. Norway, ME


12.12.09 Heron Now as been a real treat... The pond out back was a real treat for my dad and his SLR camera... Long walks on the beach were the real highlight though. The shells were spectacular, the beach deserted and the waves soothing. Loved it!

10.24.09 This is just what we needed. No people, traffic, congestion, noise... Instead quiet ocean breeze, fresh air, and nature. It was good to get back to the real Florida that we missed all these years... We will be back soon. Thank you for sharing this special place.

12.27.08 Thanks for sharing your wonderful house. Its design, construction, siting are perfect. Pensacola11.1.08 We've been busy with Christmas preparations since getting back but I didn't want to forget to thank you for our sublime month at Heron Now. Wow! What a special place! My mind goes back often to the scene off the deck of the bayou and the bay. And the air was so clean and easy to breath--I think if we lived there all the time we would all be so much healthier. We're very grateful for that lovely experience of a whole month in that sweet-sweet place.

Hello Edward,

We will come back to Florida in february next year and we would have liked to spend another week on SGI. But we found your house completely booked for this month.
What a pity!
We are now looking for another house, but Heron Now was so great that it will not be easy to find an equal one.
I'm so sorry. Greetings from Germany Beate (visitor Feb 2006,email written Oct 2006)

3.6.06 There are no words to describe our visit to the island...Every morning that little glimmer of dawn in the window was my alarm clock. I raced to the beach to capture the sunrise and watch the dolphins. We find ourselves gazing across the bay just taking in the tranquil scenery.. Alice and Clement F. from Gainesville,Fl

3.11.06 We all had a wonderful time in this perfect little niche... Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us-- its the best on the island. We will surely be back...
