Boogie Boards
      #1730536 - 04/20/17 11:13 AM (50.73.42.97)

We are coming down in a few weeks for our 6th visit. Staying in the Mont Vernon area. We just learned that our host does not have boogie boards available for us . Can anyone give us some suggestions as to where we can find them in that general area? We'll have a car.

I'm pretty sure that they have them at the big Ace Hardware in Cole Bay, but that's a bit of a distance from where you are.

I am somewhat curious though, when you say "our host", I assume you're talking about a rental unit? And I'm guessing that you think boogie boards should be provided? Personally, I wouldn't assume that, but that's just me.

Yes - it's a rental unit. 6th time staying at a Mont Vernon apartment; first time in this unit. Other units had them. Not complaining - just trying to keep my wife happy!

You can check out the shops up on the hill at Paradise View - I've seen beach toys in some of those shops. In Grand Case, a little farther away but closer than Cole Bay, is a shop called Que de Bonnheur that sells noodles, boogie boards, etc. Ace in Cole Bay would probably be the cheapest.

There used to be a shop in Hope Estate called the Bubble Shop that sold things like that. It was up behind Bacchus. I'm pretty sure it's still there.

Huh, OK. I'm surprised all the other apartments had them, but I am often wrong.

Hi Carol,

We never supplied Boogie Boards. Beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers yes.
I think it's strange also.
Cheers

Headcounter

There is a store on the main road close to you called Quicksilver. It is in a small strip mall near the roundabout that takes you to Cul De Sac.

It is a little tricky to find b/c you have to enter off a service road, rather than the main road. But you can see it from the main road.

They have other water sport gear there as well.

I bought one there for $60 US. Used it all week.
Great wine and food shops in same area.
