Here is a dream come true for the three-generation family whose wish list of individual requirements includes copious space for togetherness; intimate space to take a nap, finish a novel or have a massage; sporting options to satisfy restless cravings for activity and the stimulation of competitive sports; and spacious dining areas when those other cravings kick in and your chef rings the bell that signals time for another long, leisurely, luscious meal.  In short, make your multi-faceted wish list and take a look at Canoe Cove.

The 200’ beach ranges in width from sea wall to surf from 15’ in high tide to 30’ in low tide, varying with weather patterns.  For joggers or strollers, the extended beach length is approximately 1,000 feet.  The uninterrupted view extends all the way to the horizon, punctuated a few times each week by tall white cruise ships drifting silently across your view toward the harbor. 

Canoe Cove encourages a relaxed, un-fussy vacation with an abundance of sporty options balanced with as much pure relaxation as anyone could want.  The location is amazing. The service is excellent. The villa itself is stylish without pretense or overstatement, uncluttered and totally livable.  Inside, textures of exotic woods establish a grounded, organic ambience as backdrop against stylish furnishings.  Cedar, Jojoba, Honduran pine, marble, coral stone and natural cement floors are cool under bare feet.  Finishes of reclaimed teak and driftwood echo the Caribbean venue.  Decorating a hallway is a whimsical 6’ pendant lamp made entirely of old magazines and looking remarkably like bark.  Across the lawn, supporting structures of the gazebo are purloined telephone poles with bamboo-clad bases.  Delicate orchids cultivated on site contrast with other natural materials and adorn most rooms.

For tennis buffs who want to bring their own pro from home, on-site sleeping accommodations can be arranged and villa staff will look after this guest.  Nannies from home may sleep in the child’s room.
