Quaint and cozy, with an amazing view! Very "Quadra," so you get the full island experience.

Cute little 2-bedroom cottage in the most beautiful setting. It has an incredible patio with sweeping views of the ocean. If the weather had been nicer, I'm sure i wouldn't have moved much from there. We made the booking last minute, and Linda was accommodating, and ensured our stay was comfortable.

Linda was a gracious and helpful host, the cottage has a fantastic view, and an easy walk to the beach. We were all very satisfied with the Heron House cottage.

The description of Heron House Cottage on airbnb is accurate. It is a beautiful cabin in a beautiful location. Linda, met us at the cabin as soon as we arrived to show us around even though we had arrived early. It was very quiet and peaceful. A welcome retreat from everyday stresses. Great location, easy walk to many amenities including grocery store and local pub. Can't wait to return.

I am a long time resident of Quadra island and live in Heriot bay,the heron house is in an excellent location as three minute walk to just about everything , shops, pub, restaurant .About me :I enjoy travel, kayaking, and island life . I Spend winters in Africa, so can tell you lots about safari Africa and will be setting up trips for the fall but do not worry no! hard sell . .oh and if you love seafood -ask me about ordering wee delicious shooter oysters ,or the barbecue size, when in season -most months .often scallops available ,and salmon .When I was away in Africa last year I misjudged and had a person that I did not know well , manage my house .This was in December .he was extremely rude and incompetent as a manager- And there is a very harsh review on this site .Please ,do not let this have reflection on Heron house- I'm back -and it is truly a beautiful place, and it is clean {ask helper } and lovely gardens. A quiet refuge to vacation whether it be a night or a month .
