Great for large group

We were a group of 6 adults and 6 kids. Had plenty of space for everyone. 5 minute walk to the beach. Pool was great too.

Overall it was nice. There needs to be more instructions on using hot tub and pool. It would have been nice to have a blow dryer and kitchen towels, it was hard to clean up with paper towel. Light switches should be labeled. Other than that it was a very nice stay.

Gas grill in back had no propane as well as grill was so grossed up been tough to bque if it did have propane . Had little kids in our group , last 3 days killed 5-6 bugs , water bugs looked like . Could have been alot cleaner . Looks hoosier with old used glass shwer doors laying up against your home. One rock and you have old used shattered glass shwr doors with bigger mess and who knows what else . Only ocean or carribean theme was in upstairs bathroom with 2 fish on the wall. AC worked well , upstairs bed was very comfortable . Thank you .

Perfect location for a short stroll to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was more than adequate for our needs. We had a total of 10 people with us. Half of them being children. Everyone had plenty of room for themselves. The housekeeper, Christina, had everything spic and span for us. I wasn't crazy about either of the two bathrooms, but hey, I'm not spending a lot of time in there anyway. I did enjoy the breakfast nook and all bedrooms have TV's in them. The upstairs living area was another great feature. My favorite part of the place was the back yard with an amazing pool and heated Jacuzzi. Beautifully landscaped with plenty of seating for everyone. The beach is a straight shot down (2 blocks) to a boardwalk. This is extremely handy because parking by the beach is very difficult. We would definitely stay here again and we can tell the owner is trying to maintain the house by putting in higher end ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc.

Thoroughly enjoyed Blue Heron Hideaway with family of 10

  • 4 of 5

This property is perfect for larger families and kids with the large private pool in the back. Our kids spent most of the day in the pool playing volleyball or swimming. The hot tub was also heavily used by the adults later in the day.

The property is in a great location about a 5 minute walk from the beach where you can enjoy the waves of the Gulf. The neighborhood is very quiet, but yet close to the open air mall in Destin. And if you are a golfer, there are lots of great golf courses in the close vicinity!

While the interior could use a little bit of an update, we had all the beds we needed for the large group. This is definitely a great place at a decent price for a larger group and I would recommend it to my friends if they were looking for anything that sleeps 8+ people.
