We wanted a tranquil location away from the hustle and bustle but a close enough walk to get supplies and a coffee. Had to have a nice pool with comfortable lodgings with all the mod cons. The Canopy proved to be the perfect location. This was in Nov 2008. We revisited Nov 2009 and intend to stay at the Canopy again in Nov 2010. The best hosts my wife and I have ever had the pleasure to have met. They have become our friends.
The A frames provide great air flow, we didn't need the air conditioner. All the cooking facilities were modern and the TV was a fairly large plasma with foxtel. The Canopy is geared for couples and if you have trouble climbing stairs I probably wouldn't recommend as the bedroom is upstairs.You gotta try the hot stone massage at endota spa at Peppers (pure induldgence).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On a beautifully landscaped site, is a huddle of just 13 A-framed chalets. Holding centre stage is the stunning lagoon pool. The rest of Canopy is devoted to a large grass barbecue area and native trees and shrubs – just the way nature intended.Reflecting the best in relaxed contemporary tropical design, each of the chalets consist of a living/dining area, designer kitchen, bathroom with separate toilet, separate laundry and a loft-style bedroom upstairs. High ceilings add to the wonderful feeling of space and freedom. Ideally suited to two guests, additional guests can be accommodated with the sofa bed. The front veranda enjoys views of the lagoon pool and large landscaped area, while also being screened by native plants for more privacy. Different external colour schemes, that take their inspiration from the National Park backdrop, add an extra flourish of individuality. A green enclave off Yates Street, at the popular Nelly Bay, Canopy offers complete privacy close to everything. Magnetic Harbour, Marina village and the ferry terminal are all less than a kilometre away. The allure of the palm-fringed beach is just a 400 metre stroll down the road. Shops, restaurant, cafes and supermarkets are within easy walking distance. ... more less
