Canopy Chalets
Reviewed January 11, 2013

It was an absolute surprise to find such a relaxing environment on a holiday island.
There were no screaming kids with families and the couples in the adjoining rooms were just like us, enjoying a private R&R.
There were birds and wildlife that would show up day and night.
The other residences have been placed so as to provide privacy, and the room we were in had all the cookwares for use to come up with our own dishes and not spend a fortune at restaurants/take-aways.
The hotel managers Rick and Angie were absolutely professional and very helpful in their recommendations towards the island facilities, restaurants and all other aspects.
We absolutely recommend this affordable getaway but there are not that many rooms available. Best to plan and contact directly to ensure there will be a room available.
BTW ensure you have also contacted the local car rentals as it turns out that rental cars are not allowed from the mainland to the island and vice-versa. But you can ferry your own car onto the island.

We were really happy with our choice in staying at the chalets. They are super clean & modern and the whole place is so peaceful and relaxing. The resident birds are fun to watch and hearing them in the morning isnt a bad way to wake up in my opinion! I would defnitely recommend staying here to everyone I know, and would love to come back one day. next time Ill bring some mozzie repelant and toilet paper though (its self catering, so after your first roll you need to top it up yourself- we realised this a bit late!). All in all an excellent place to stay!! :)

Modern, stylish chalets just 15 min walk from Nelly Bay and probably the best restaurant on the island 'Le Paradis'. Very clean and comfortable, with everything you need in the kitchen. The pool is really nice and the surrounding gardens are very well looked after. A very pleasant stay.

We are sooo happy to have found Canopy Chalets and really appreciated Alan and Angela's friendliness and helpfulness, whilst respecting our privacy. The chalet and surrounds were immaculate; the pool spotlessly clean. We loved having 'curlew bird' share our drinks and nibbles on the terrace. Being close to the bus stop was great and even better was being surrounded by trees and away from the busy ferry terminal (a 10 minute walk). Thanks Alan for dropping us (and our luggage) back to the ferry. Our 3 day stay was wonderful.

Room Tip: The Chalets are separated by large plants/foliage giving privacy and all overlook the pool.

Luxurious and confy chalets, beautifully equipped with all you need for a short or even a longer stay . Unfortunately we´ve planned only three nights . We would ´ve loved to stay longer in this fantastic, peaceful oasis. We simply loved it !

Nice homely atmosphere at the BBQ’s.
Walking distance to the shops and close to the ferry.
Could not think about a better place to stay.
The owner is very helpful.
