    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    The Blue heron House is an inlet waterfront home situated on Jensens Bay directly across from South Chestermans Beach. Jensens Bay is a bird and nature lovers sanctuary. Its a fascinating intertidal zone with the changing of tides every 6 hours, a constant ebb and flow into Browning Passage. Often with the water out of the bay you can watch in the distance a bear or lone wolf forage across the flats. There is a small cedar deck on a grassy knoll at waters edge perfectly situated to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in the early morning dawn. Its also a perfect vantage point for sighting eagles, herons, murganzers, osprey and many other interesting species of birds. A custom built, beautiful cedar clad home with exceptional timber accents, a fireplace, vaulted ceilings and skylights. Quiet, Coz... more

We spent a much needed four nights together, as a family, at the Blue Heron Guest House. The guest house is actually part of the main house, although you would never know it. From the pictures, you would think that the guest house stands alone. Even with the main house attached, we did not hear any noise from the owners... more

The location required driving into town for sure, and the view is just a small part of the inlet.... No ocean or mountain views. Hot tub not super well maintained.
