Awesome location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, and ready for us to stay. We were close to the beach, the pool, and the local grocery store. Due to the fact that we have several small children, these are important factors and a necessity for a great vacation.

The pool is great for small kids, and the play place (on site) was a great option to have between beach runs and pool trips.

The washer and dryer were great to have, as well as a full service kitchen and refrigerator.

It was also great to have the bunk beds, so we would definitely stay there again.

Having televisions in separate rooms allowed the kids to watch cartoons around nap time so the adults could stay and talk.

It was really close to the beach, and all of the shopping areas, so it is in a great location.

We would definitely stay again!

We will be back...

  • 5 of 5

A great property and a great location. Easy access to the beach and nearby shopping, etc. The property was in great shape and felt like no one had been there before us. Comfortable beds, and ceiling fans made for a very good nights sleep. Decor was had a very nice feel and wasn't overwhelming. The property was well managed, cleaned and fully stocked for us when we arrived. We had 9 people with us in our group and everyone was comfortable and we never felt crowded. Love the outside sitting area and shower.

Cute but not comfortable

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the blue canoe - it's decorated very well & close to the beach & shops. But there were a few things that made it someplace we wouldn't return. First were the poor quality mattresses on every bed. Our entire group complained about how uncomfortable the beds were & how noisy - every time you would move they would squeak & that was on every bed. It was also not stocked very well. We had 1 roll of 1/2 used paper towels there when we arrived & no extras. Only a couple trash bags too & for a large group over several days you go through a lot of trash. No sugar for coffee & very few other spices so you literally need to bring everything with you. We travel to Port A every year & every house we've stayed in has been better stocked than this one. No curtains over the windows either so the sun comes in 1st thing in the morning which didn't bother us but if you like to sleep in you can't unless you bring your own curtains. It's a cute place but we won't be returning & wouldn't recommend it to others- there's just too many other great houses out there to rent.
