NEARBY ATTRACTIONS

Grocery stores and little restaurants are a short 5 minute drive away with fabulous dining options in Somerset village, Dockyard and at the many fine restaurants down the south shore including Pompano, The Reefs, Henry VIII, The Southampton Princess ( 5 restaurants there including the fabled Newport Room) , the Waterlot Inn, Willowbank and many others.

Interesting places to see in the vicinity would include Dockyard. The extraordinary installation features a collection of spectacular buildings erected for navy re-provisioning in the very early 1800′s. The Maritime Museum out at Dockyard on Ireland Island has fascinating displays of items from Bermuda’s extraordinarily colorful past, fully restored. The Commissioners House is an iron structure with the most commanding view of the island to be seen anywhere- from end to end. Other handsome buildings now house art galleries, museums, cafes, artist’s workshops, theatres and pubs as well as a major ferry stop that will whisk you into Hamilton and on to St. Georges. Heading east by road towards Hamilton, you will be charmed with the town of Somerset- it has a post office and pharmacy, nice places to dine and little shops where you can re-provision while admiring the views and the mangrove-edged beach. Ely’s Harbour at Somerset Bridge has a small marina where you can rent boats and explore the multitude of small islands just offshore including Cathedral Rocks. A bus-ferry pass to get around would be a good thing to have if mopeds are not your style!

The Railway Trail is nearby as well, and offers a peek into Old Bermuda, as the trail wends away from the main road and past some fascinating old homes and farms with jaw dropping views. The grand beaches at Horseshoe, Warwick Long Bay and Elbow are a short bus or moped ride away and some are serviced public beaches with cafes, beach chair and umbrella rentals available. The Watford Bridge terminal is half a mile walk away. The local Supermarket is close by as well and spirits are sold until 9pm, and groceries can be purchased there until midnight. Casual dining can be enjoyed at “Traditions Café” or the “Country Squire Restaurant” and the “Frog and Onion Pub” and the “Freeport Restaurant” is 10 minutes away at Dockyard.

The Southampton Princess Golf Course, Port Royal and Riddells Bay are all in the western end of the island. The Somerset Bridge Post Office has free internet for people who do not have a laptop.

    We had a wonderful time in Bermuda in October for our 40th Wedding anniversary. There were seven of us and we had plenty of bedrooms and space for all of us.This is lovely old Bermuda House that has been updated with AC and WiFi. The dinning room, bedrooms and kitchen were top notch. The property has beach rights with the next door Cambridge Beach Resort so we had a beautiful beach. The owner could not have been nicer. For a large group looking to stay in a lovely Grand Bermuda House, this is the place.

    We really enjoyed our stay at W31. What a memorable place to celebrate a 60th Birthday! The home owner was a pleasure and very hospitable.

    Our family reunion at W31 was truly one of the most magical vacations of my life. I was in love even before I stepped inside, because the grounds are spectacular, a tropical wonderland. The deep, gracious front porch is a natural gathering spot, and where we ate all our meals. The big lovely dining room table became the card-playing place, and of course there was plenty of casual conversation at the small table in the big, fully-equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are gorgeous, and there are plenty of bathrooms. And just a little way past the enchanted little backyard (complete with outdoor shower to wash away the beach sand before going inside) is a pathway leading to Cambridge Beaches and their beautiful extensive gardens.
    In addition to its gracious beauty, the house is clean and fully stocked. I loved every minute I spent there, just as much as I did running around my beloved Bermuda, my childhood home. I can’t wait to come back to W31.

    I just wanted to express my thanks to you and the homeowner] for a wonderful vacation at this house in Bermuda. The house was immaculate and interesting. We loved the shopping cart in the front yard. Pushed it down the hill to the market filled it and pushed it back. The beach was lovely and inviting in the heat and humidity. We took advantage of the breezes bar every afternoon and voted it best Dark and Stormy’s in Bermuda.

    This Cambridge house is truly the jewel of Bermuda. Twelve of my family vacationed in Bermuda to celebrate the college graduations of my granddaughter and niece on July 2012. Bermuda is breathtakingly beautiful and having the Cambridge house as our home away from home made this the vacation of a lifetime. Fiona and Bermuda Rentals were wonderful throughout the rental process right on through to the full refund of our deposit. Planning a vacation for 12 people entailed countless questions. My e-mails and phone calls were answered in a helpful, friendly manner.

    This home is elegant yet inviting and comfortable. We hadn’t planned to have so many meals at ‘home’ but the veranda was such a beautiful setting, we dined on ‘our own’ porch often. Every morning and evening’s end was spent on that wonderful veranda. The kitchen is large and equipped with everything you could need or want. There is even a second kitchen on the other side of the house but we didn’t need to use that one. We enjoyed using the outdoor barbeque, located right off the main kitchen. The five bedrooms upstairs have private bathrooms and most also have an exit to the outdoors (handy for back and forth from the beach). The three semi-private bedrooms downstairs share a bathroom.

    The Cambridge House is located near the Cambridge Beaches Resort. We walked over to dance and dine there a couple of times. The first night on the island we walked to The Somerset Restaurant and stopped on the way home to pick up groceries. The next morning we picked up our 6 mopeds from Orleander Cycles (they have a rental office right next door at Cambridge Beaches Resort…call ahead for reservation). The rest of week we toured the island and its gorgeous beaches (Bermuda beaches will spoil you for life!) via moped. This is the fun and fancy-free way to travel the island but you must be hale and hardy to navigate. I was a passenger! There is a great bus system throughout the island for the less brave. Several of us took the ferry from Dockyard to St. George and Hamilton.

    We highly recommend Cambridge House…just don’t book “our week”. We’ll be back!

    Our stay at [W31] in Bermuda was a very pleasant experience. The house was a grand old Bermudian house which was furnished in very fine, lovely furniture which made our stay very comfortable. The house was very spacious in that we all felt comfortable with the layout and never felt crowded because of the large front porch, the large dining room and large bedrooms, which all had their own baths. We all had a wonderful time there and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a house to rent in Bermuda.

    We all (8) had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our needs – very comfortable and spacious. We especially enjoyed breakfast on the front porch and afternoon adult beverages that our children and their spouses blended. The house was very convenient to the beach, restaurants, grocery stores and bus lines. All of our three adult children rented scooters and used them extensively. On Friday some of us went by ferry into Hamilton for lunch and shopping, others played golf and lay on the beach. Friday night we had dinner at Mickey’s next to beach, with the moon shimmering across the waves. On Saturday, our children chartered a 46 foot sail boat right there at Cambridge Beach Resort. We had a wonderful 4-hour excursion – touring and snorkeling in the vicinity of Hamilton. All in all, a most memorable visit and we all look forward to returning to Bermuda.
