We have always loved to travel, explore and enjoy many outdoor activities - boating, sup boarding, kayaking, fishing, shelling are just some of our favourite things to do!
The world we live in spins so quickly, we are always in a rush to get somewhere, chasing the next moment instead of enjoying the moment we are in. Sometimes you need to simply slow down. There are no better places than Exuma or Muskoka to go outside and feel the sun rays, breathe fresh air, do some soul searching and experience an incredible vacation. We welcome you to our slice(s) of paradise either in Great Exuma, Bahamas or Muskoka, Ontario, Canada where you can relax and unwind and experience your next travel adventure.
We would love to get to know you and help you with your planning for your ultimate, unique and unforgettable vacation. We are committed to providing our guests with prompt responses.
Contact us for a direct booking for either vacation rental.

Review: July 2023 Canuck Palms was perfect for our family vacation to Exuma. It was stocked with amenities & very kid friendly (even had a high chair & pack 'n play for our little one). The house delivered exactly as the pictures & description conveyed. The beach across the street was great - had it to ourselves every time we walking over, although a bit stronger waves vs. other beaches on the island. To truly enjoy Exuma you need to explore all over the island - the house was very centrally located & it made it easy to see everything without too much time in the car. Overall, would definitely recommend!
Review: December 2022 Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. Canuck Palms is in a great location, very central and only a 10 minute drive from the Airport. You are only a few steps to your own, almost private, beach and a 10 minute walk to the Three Sisters' Beach. There are 2 well-stocked convenience stores within walking distance. The house has a large private garden and a nice deck; perfect for spending lazy afternoons reading or just relaxing with a drink. The house is immaculate, it has two large bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, good AC and lots of windows which open. There is also an outdoor shower with hot & cold water!The house is well stocked and equipped with almost anything you could possibly need to make your trip comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying at Canuck Palms.
Review: June 2023 Excellent Home Brett and Heather were very responsive to any follow-up questions we had. The check-in process was very easy. The home is exactly as the photos depict. Spotlessly clean, bright, large rooms, cozy beds. They have thought of almost anything someone may need. You could literally come here without packing anything and have what you need. They have set the bar very high for other VRBO properties. We have stayed three different places in Exuma and by far this has been the best property. Very close to a quiet beach with a scenic walk. When we come back we will certainly choose Canuck Palms. We cannot recommend their home enough. Thank you so much Brett and Heather. Your home helped make an already perfect island vacation that much better.
Review: April 2023 Cute, clean little bungalow! All the conveniences of home. Super well organized, wonderful bathtubs and comfy beds - highly recommend!
Review: January 2023 As Promised & More Everything we expected & more. Very comfortable home that was spotless clean. Great quiet location with a very secluded beach steps away. We will return! Great communication with owners makes for a more relaxed experience! Thank you Brett & Heather, for sharing your beach home with us and making our getaway very comfortable.
Review: Fantastic home in a tropical paradise - September 2023 We stayed on the island for a week. The house is very easy to reach and is a two minute walk from the nearest beach. The house is beautiful, very clean and equipped with any utensil (there is also beach equipment). The owners are available 24 hours a day, they respond immediately, solving any problems. We could not have made a better choice and this beautiful home helped make our vacation in the paradise of Exuma even more magical!
Review: Awesome Family Get Away - Aug 2022 Canuck Palms was an excellent home for our family get away. This was our second stay at Brett and Heather’s Exuma home. The home is in a great location to the airport and centrally located to explore either side of the island. We rented a car and explored a different beach each day. Canuck Palms supplied all the beach gear you would need to be comfortable for a day out exploring or relaxing. After a day out at the beach, it was wonderful to return to home base each day, to a fully equipped home with all the amenities you needed. We had great night sleeps in the super comfortable beds with high quality linens. Canuck Palms is decorated with beautiful hues of blue which brings the ocean to you. The beach vibe is just refreshing, yet cozy, and perfect for a relaxing vacation. Our hosts Heather and Brett were extremely helpful with making any arrangements needed and answering any type of question. Just like the locals of the island they are very friendly! Thanks for another wonderful holiday!!
