Island Perfection

My family vacations on Anna Maria every year. This house is, by far, the best one we have ever rented. The house is stunning. The location is perfect if you have a boat or a jet ski. The amenities in this house are incredible. The owner is super efficient and very accommodating. We can’t wait to be back next year! Thank you Blue Heron for an incredible week!!

Wonderful house, wonderful host!

Our family spent several weeks at the Blue Heron during the winter of 2021, as we worked from home during the pandemic. We were so lucky to have found Blue Heron! The house is very large and beautifully appointed. The setting is magical — with beautiful views over Bimini Bay in a peaceful, private setting. Brian, the owner, is extremely responsive and flexible. We love it so much that we’re coming back!

Beautiful Property!

A beautifully furnished, first-class property on a nice, quiet street. Great location with numerous restaurants, stores, and shops within a short walk. A home run for any vacation!

Absolutely Amazing

My family and I truly enjoyed everything this property had to offer. The location was perfect. It was close to everything but still seemed very private. The views of the bay were wonderful to watch the sunrise. We enjoyed all the amenities, especially the pool and pool table. Brian was amazing and always quick to respond to any questions or issues. We will definitely be returning.

Anna Maria Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed this house and the host was wonderful. The home is beautiful and in a great location. The home had everything we wanted, and we will definitely be booking it again!!

Home Away from Home

It’s a lovely house. One of my kids had a nice study area, my smallest played with the toys on site, and my eldest played pool. My kids had a great time by the pool and when fishing. The kitchen was equipped to prepare a nice meal. It is a family friendly place and a great place to remove oneself from the city and stress. There is a lot of thought and detail to every corner of it.

The perfect beach vacation!

This house is beautiful, the location is great, just a short bike ride to the beach. It connects to the bay, which is very calm. We spent a lot of time at the pool. It has all of the accommodations and more. First time at Anna Maria Island and we would love to return to this house.

Don't pass this property up ~ just don't steal a week I might want!

Only positive things to share about this property....
We had a wonderful stay at The Blue Heron!

LOCATION:. On the quiet side of the island. Easy walk or bike ride to the city pier, Bayfront Park, ice cream and shops. We loved having the bay right at the end of the dock to paddle board, kayak and fish. Private backyard for sure. Such a great amenity. The quiet cul-de-sac was nice for the little one to get his bike legs going before heading out onto the street. Short drive to the beach, we chose to park near and enter the beach on Sycamore Ave. No problem finding parking.

INTERIOR OF THE HOUSE: So roomy. We loved the open floor plan. Lots of room for the littles to play and spread out without feeling like they were on top of us all the time. Bedrooms all a good size and plenty of bathrooms. Kitchen had everything we needed, we cooked a lot and never felt that anything was missing. The house was very clean and tidy. There was no unnecessary clutter around. The screen porches were a delight, lots of time spent relaxing out there.

STANDOUT BONUSES: The pool was delightful, just enough new toys and floats to keep everyone entertained. The best beach house collection of books I've ever seen! Fun family games for all ages, and a sprinkling of toys for the kids that kept them entertained. The pool table was a great source of competitive fun! Second floor den TV for a quiet place to watch something no one else was interested in. Second floor deck to watch the water views. Beach chairs!!!

OWNER REVIEW: Super helpful with island tips, house accommodations and response to questions and concerns. Obviously wanted to see that we had a pleasant experience!

We will be back to the Blue Heron for certain. My only hesitation of giving this property such high marks is my fear that it will become such a popular rental that it won't be available when I want to book a stay! I guarantee you won't be disappointed if you book this property!

Beautiful home

Our two families travel together often to AMI and this was by far one of our favorite stays. The house felt like home and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the privacy of the pool and the dock where the kids could enjoy crabbing, fishing and paddle boarding. Brian was always available to answer any questions. We will be back!
