Blue Heron Cottages Information


Each of our 6 dog friendly, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom,  cottages offer the same floor plan and appointments. Each sleeps up to 4 adults comfortably.  You will find a queen sized bed in the separate bedroom and, in the living room, a sectional sofa which converts to a VERY comfortable full queen bed. All linens are provided.   The two areas share a jack-and-jill bathroom which can be accessed from either the living room or the bedroom. Each cottage is equipped with 4 sets of towels, including beach towels.   Amenities include a fully equipped, chef inspiring kitchen with gas range and full size refrigerator. We provide Britta Water Filters so bring a reusable water bottle.  Both the living room and bedroom have SmartTVs equipped with Amazon FireSticks giving access to  Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Pandora, and various other entertainment Applications.    Additionally, we provide complementary, beach cruisers, boogie and surf boards, beach chairs, small coolers and sand toys for your use.     All of our cottages open on to a lovely, fenced-in courtyard.  Enjoy the large shared courtyard under the gazebo listening to the wild local parrots as they go about their day.  Barbecue with friends and family, toss the ball for your pup, or just relax and soak up the sun in our lounge chairs. The gazebo is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy the evening sea breeze or morning coffee.  Although our cottages have ceiling fans, tower fans and access to cool ocean breezes, it can still become uncomfortably hot during an all too common heat wave.  So, in order to keep our rental rates lower for all, we have opted to provide portable a/c units  for a nominal fee of  $10/day,$60/week, or $200/month. Each cottage comes with one off street parking place suitable for most car sizes. We strive to provide  a turn-key experience so that you can feel at home while you're away and focus on fun and relaxation.
