All 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. If you would like to use a portable a/c unit in your cottage, please contact us ahead of time to have your unit installed and waiting. Or you can see what the weather will bring, and if you need more then the provided fans you can contact our on site manager during your stay. Each cottage comes with one off street parking place suitable for most car sizes.

    Amazing in everyway

    We had an amazing stay and will be back. This place has perfect ratings on all sites and we now know why. The cottages are so clean and very well kept. The area is extremely pet family. The whole cottage area is fenced in so dogs can run free. There are many dogs but the cleanliness of this place is incredible. The dog beach is 2 mins away and all major attractions within 10 minutes. Perfect location, perfect staff and the perfect location to travel with your pets. The only downfall of our trip was we didnt stay long enough. All the conveniences of home.

    We'll be back!!!

    This is not a place that just tolerates dogs, this is a place designed to make both dogs and their people happy, comfortable and welcomed. The rooms were immaculate and grounds were well kept and great for playful pups. Charlie and Samantha were wonderful. They made sure we were well taken care of as well bonding with both of our dogs, even our shy puppy. We highly recommend the Blue Heron Cottages to anyone traveling with a dog.

    Very happy with our stay

    Very clean, cozy and friendly little complex. Great location and the property is well cared for. This was our first time bringing our dogs with us and it worked out beautifully. I think our pups were pleased as well. Highly recommend this rental property!
