Recent Big Canoe reviews
Best property we have stayed in so far.
"The property is really great and comfortable. Getting there was a bit problematic at the start as we could not find the North gate. GPS coordinates for this would be useful especially for travellers who arrive after dark. Big Canoe is a large gated community that is distinctly upmarket and well managed. After confirming our particulars, the guard house supplied us with a pass that we could use to re-enter at any time. Driving to the house from the North gate took about 5 km along narrow but well maintained mountain roads. The entrance pathway is steep and narrow, and you will find it better to reverse your car at the house further down the road before driving in. The house itself is very well kept and the fittings and decor are all top notch. Even the supplied soap was spa quality according to my wife, and she is a good judge of such things. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and the master room downstairs is especially spacious. It was a pity that I could not try out the telescope in the lounge as the area was overcast during my entire stay. I am really struggling to find a negative aspect to this property (I always comment on something for a balanced review), and the only thing I could think of was the lack of an animal-proof garbage bin outside. There is a lot of wildlife out there and the garbage bag we left overnight was ripped to shreds. Although we normally dispose of rubbish at the disposal centre at the North gate, this may not be convenient at night. Even so, this was the best property that I have stayed in so far, and we do travel extensively in the US and around the world."

"My husband and I vacationed with our three daughters, son-in-law and three grand children 17, 2, and 3 mos. Everyone had a great time. The house we rented gave us an enjoyable, comfortable stay that allowed for great family time as well as peaceful alone moments. We took advantage of the POA amenities as well as the the house amenities. Family breakfast on the screened-in porch was a great start of each day and sit down dinners in the lovely dinning room started our evening fun time. Considering the age ranges in our family and their unique needs, we picked the perfect place."

"This propery by far offered our family the richest vacation experience we ever had. The home was beautifully furnished with comfortable living areas and king sized beds in every bedroom. The game room was the perfect setting for nightly competitions. The kitchen had every device you would need to whip up your favorite recipes. The view....breathtaking. We even used he telescope one night and spotted Saturn! We are a busy family and after one night in this place felt completely relaxed and renewed. The patio was such a quiet retreat for morning coffee. We spotted deer and turkey every day on our drive to the pool/lake. The kids loved the fun at the lake and rockslide. We hiked to the falls which were gorgeous. The house is perfectly located and we will definitely be back soon! Mark was the most hospitable host and very helpful!"
