Brisan has the perfect mix of everything you need for a relaxing holiday - not easy when your children are of very different ages! Sandy and Brian are the best possible hosts you could wish to have, they made us feel at home the moment we arrived, and every effort was made to ensure that the families in their B&B were completely looked after. The breakfasts were delicious, rooms so comfortable (the best beds, thankyou!), and our location was perfect - close enough for our teenagers to walk to nightlife, for a walk to the beach and the canals were ideal for our 10 year old to use the B&B's canoes - we could paddle down to the river mouth to swim in the shallow estuary. We were really sad leaving Brisan, it felt like home and our youngest had virtually adopted Brian and Sandy as his grandparents, as had some of the other young children staying there!

Hi Gary, Linda and Family
Thanks so much for taking some of your valuable time to write the review. It is very much appreciated by both of us.
You were a great family to have in our home and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Brisan on the Canals. The superb weather - third year in a row it has been great - was an added
bonus to making the holiday even better.
We wish you all a wonderful 2014 and rich blessings to a fabulous family.
Kindest regards
Brian and Sandy Cunningham

if you are looking to stay in a peaceful place with the sounds of the ocean nearby then go to Brisan. You will feel at home and be treated like a son/daughter.

The canals are wonderfully peaceful and for an even more incredible experience take a ride in the canals and view some of the incredible houses on display.

Brian and Sandy or extremely great hosts; being B &B owners for a few decades. We had just checked in and Sandy asked if we wanted a tour of the canal system (small charge). We said, yes, and within 5 minutes we were on the canals with Brian. They were the first house built on their section of the canal; Brian knows everyone; our tour was fabulous. They also rent their entire house out if people need a large area. HIghly recommend staying in this area of St.Francis Bay.

Room Tip: Canal facing room on lower level; then you can walk right to the breakfast room and canal system.

We had a very smart double room on the ground floor with full en-suite bathroom. The room has all the required amenities and freshly prepared breakfast on the deck was great. The hosts are superb and very helpful in advising on local attractions and places to shop and eat. The boat ride up the canals is great, if not just slightly expensive for a group.

Lovely setting amongst the canals of St Francis Bay. Brian and Sandy very accommodating. Rooms overlooking the canals - very clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the terrace excellent. Would stay again given the opportunity.
