Overview

About the property

New 2 bedroom 2 bath Steinhatchee vacation rental home professionally decorated

Heron's Nest of Steinhatchee, Peaceful, quiet, and close to everything. Skip the condo crowds and hotels in this new 1200 sq ft 2 bedroom 2 bath Steinhatchee townhome walking distance to the boat ramp.

As owners we proudly manage all 4 of our properties ourselves, and do our very best to give you much more than you expect at a price that is very affordable. If you take a moment to read some of our reviews, you will soon realize that we are very committed to making sure you have the best experience possible.

We also have a brand new sleeper sofa with airdream mattress that will make you reconsider sleeper sofas, it is to die for.

Heron's Nest is part of a very private 4 unit townhome site nestled into the trees on 1st Street w. We are the right half of the green townhome pictured, unit 205-b (kind of like a duplex) Location doesn't get any better, with the boat ramp, sunset point, and restaurants within walking distance. Walk over to Roy's waterfront restaurant and enjoy the sunset while having a nice dinner or check out the live music at Crabby Dads for a more lively atmosphere, and don't forget waterfront Hungry Howies for some Awesome pizza! No condo party noise to contend with at the townhome, just the birds and the breeze. The townhome has brand new furnishings accented with awesome artwork that are some of Steinhatchee's trademarks. Bedrooms are furnished with exquisite linens for a resort-like experience while on vacation. With 600 thread count linens and lush comforters, the hardest thing about vacation might be getting out of bed in the morning. This is not your ordinary Steinhatchee rental, and this rental is not intended for the party crowd. If you want a peaceful retreat that is super convenient to the some of the best fishing and scalloping in the state, then you have found it at Heron's Nest. Included in the rental are some specifics of what to do while on vacation including GPS #'s for fishing inshore/offshore, private beach picnic spots, the best kayaking locations, where to find sand dollars, and of course the best scallop locations.

Sea Hag Marina is less than a mile away for all your fishing and scalloping needs including air fills for divers and boat rentals if you find yourself without a boat.

Maddies Market is also a mile away for grocery items, and Ace Hardware 1.5 miles away for any last minute needs. Drop a kayak in right at the ramp and enjoy a peaceful paddle on the river, or River Haven will shuttle you up to Steinhatchee falls and kayak down river for a couple of hours of connecting with Old Florida. Head over to Dallus creek or Rocky creek and launch a skinny water boat in search of redfish, trout and flounder. Offshore fishing is phenomenal year round with grouper, snapper, cobia, amberjack, pink mouth, sea bass, spanish mackeral, and Kingfish being the bulk of your catch.

Feel like staying in? We have two new smart tvs with free Wifi and a Bluetooth sound system. For even quieter times, enjoy a glass of wine and a recent best selling novel on the chaise lounge.

If you've never been to Steinhatchee before, this will soon become your favorite escape from the hurried pace of regular life. Bring your boat, or rent one at any of the marinas nearby and dive in to a fun family adventure at Heron's Nest in beautiful Steinhatchee,FL.

About Abby and Steve Hale

Steve and Abby have been married for 12 years and have 2 daughters Savannah and Callie ages 9 and 7. We have always been very passionate boaters and fell in love with the Steinhatchee area 15 years ago. Our dream is to do a circumnavigation in our sailboat with our two girls.

Abby and Steve Hale purchased this house in 2015

Why Abby and Steve Hale chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

Steinhatchee has always been our favorite getaway, we've been fishing, scalloping, and diving here for 15 years and it is only 1 hour from our house in Lake City. The fishing has always been outstanding. The opportunity came up to buy this property and we jumped on it. We love the cracker style architecture and the location being so close to the ramp, restaurants, and Sea Hag Marina.

What makes this house unique

Steinhatchee is the scalloping capital of the world, awesome flats fishing and offshore. Our home is very close to everything, but still very quiet in its location.

Notes:
Abby and I want our guests to experience Steinhatchee like we do. We enjoy sharing our great experiences of the area, where to go fishing, where to go scalloping and the best diving locations. We have been all over Florida and have not found a place as satisfying as Steinhatchee. The slow pace and laid back lifestyle is what we love about the area and hope our guests will too. Take a kayak down the river and melt all of your worries away. What Steinhatchee isn't is a busy city with fast food on every corner. If you want a true getaway and escape from hectic life then please be our guests at Heron's nest. Catch some Trout, find some scallops, and build some lifetime memories. Let us help. Steve and Abby

Oustanding place to stay in Steinhatchee!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days/three nights the opening weekend of scallop season. We brought our boat. There is plenty of room to park and if you don't have a high tower, you can back the boat and your vehicle under cover in the carport . There is a hose there so cleanup after the day was in the shade and we had plenty of room to spread out rinsed off gear. The place is very clean, tastefully decorated and very well provisioned. It was about as comfortable as you would ever expect or want. It is close to the boat ramp and if no parking is available there, the walk is only a few blocks. The owners provide a lot of helpful information at the place and are very helpful and easy to communicate with. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking to spend time in Steinhatchee. We will stay there again in the future. Thanks!

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

Overall this property was very nice. Very clean and as advertised. The spacious kitchen was perfect for a family meal and get together.

The owners contacted us four days before arrival and told us that the air conditioning might not be working correctly which made us very nervous. We did not touch the thermostat and all went well.

As it turns out the laundry washing machine and dryer did not work. This made for some very wet towels on day two of our stay.

The directions on how to get to the property were a little sketchy and it took a little extra time to find at night.

We loved the driveway and parking facility for our boat. It was very convenient to wash down the boat and well lit.

Like a Good Friend

  • 5 of 5

Your place was Awesome! It felt like a luxury home but with a very comfortable, inviting feel. The attention to detail was very welcome. We thought that not being on the water would be a downfall, however, keeping our boat at Sea Hag Marina was very convenient. Your place was like visiting a long time friend! Thanks!

Heron's Nest was the Best!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent!!! Couldn't have ask for a better place to stay. The accommodations were great. The property was close enough to the river without being on it. Very cozy and everything looked brand new.

I would highly recommend this property for your stay in Steinhatchee. Steve and Abby were very helpful in locating scallops for us.

Steinhatchee is an amazing river community with incredible fishing opportunities and a laid back lifestyle. Awesome flats fishing and scalloping opportunities and a kayakers paradise. We've got some great restaurants like Roy's, Fiddlers, Who Dat, and the best Hungry Howies pizza around, you can even pull your boat up to it. A short 20 minute drive brings you to another great little community called Keaton Beach with a small sandy beach area with playground. One of our favorite areas is Hagan's cove, just between Steinhatchee and Keaton.
