Situated in Harrington Hundreds, Smith’s Parish, Bermuda, our comfortable home is approximately a 20 minute drive to the City of Hamilton, or 25 mins. to the old town of St. George and is close to two bus routes. Just a 4 minute walk to Harrington Hundreds grocery store, you can pick up your picnic makings and carry right on over to Spittal Pond Nature Reserve and Park, right across from the store.

Nearby Attractions

Facing the south shore, the house has a view of the ocean across the front lawn and over some rooftops lower on the hillside. A fifteen minute stroll will bring you to John Smith’s Bay. John Smith’s Bay is a well kept local secret- a quiet beach with deep soft pink sands that slope into quiet waters without the buffeting of heavy wave action or undertows. Locals like to take huge picnic baskets to the beach in the early evening when all the tourists have disappeared back to their hotels: dinner is served on a blanket on the sand as the sun goes down and the stars come out. You’ll meet some very pleasant well-fed neighbors if you choose to join them, bobbing about like corks in the gentle swells at the end of the day.

Smith’s Parish is adjacent to the Hamilton Parish enclave of the rich and famous in Tucker’s Town- you’ll enjoy touring this area with its magnificent homes, vast wooded hills and the sweeping golf courses. At the end of the long peninsula are the islands ~ with ancient ruined forts and wind blown cedar trees. Four small islands are the last preserve of the endangered indigenous Cahow bird (pterodoma cahow), a sea-bird thought extinct for over 300 years until rediscovered by a passionate young Bermudian naturalist, David Wingate, in the 1960’s. If you rent a boat, don’t disturb these creatures: there are less than 250 of them believed left in the world. You’ll want to explore Flatts Village as well with its pretty aquarium and zoo and nice places to dine, as well as the fabled Tom Moors tavern. Family fare can be found at Collectors Hill and South Shore Road where the locals dine at the Specialty Inn.

Of course, all the rest of Bermuda waits to be discovered when you have finished your leisurely exploration of the east end of the island. Hamilton is the pretty capital, filled with small shops and nice places to dine and a swirl of business people running the various international business sectors that have grown on the island in recent decades. Traveling along the South Shore road heading west towards Somerset and beyond is to treat yourself to a never ending vista of ever more dazzling beaches, pretty homes and extraordinary amounts of green space- grassy sand dunes, tropical woods, manicured parks and golf courses. Handsome hotels and fine dining establishments abound here too- you are never far from a tasty meal beautifully served in Bermuda. Somerset Village and the attractions of Dockyard with its museums, shops, pubs, beachfront and bars only ends when the last ferry chugs off back to Hamilton with you and your moped aboard. Bus service is good too. Coming back along the Harbour Road is another treat with the Great Sound and the city of Hamilton twinkling invitingly across the water. And then there is the Railway Trail to explore on mopeds or on foot- an old carriageway-footpath where the original railway lines ran. Many visitors miss the North Shore Road but its worth seeing- much quieter waters, handsome old houses and the pretty village of Flatts as you wend your way down the coast to St. George’s. The original capital , the town is well worth a visit. Its collection of ancient buildings and its exceptional role in the development of trade both with the early American colonies and the Caribbean islands to the south reminds every visitor that the ocean has been the key to the trade that made Bermuda into the gem it is today. Pink coral sand beaches and a turquoise sea. And so much more to enjoy and appreciate…

Amazing

I wanted to let you know that my daughter and I had a really amazing stay at C29. [The home owner] was so friendly and helpful. The apartment was just perfect for us.

Beautiful!

Me and three friends just stayed at this beautiful apartment in Smith’s Parish, and couldn’t have had a better time. John Smith’s Bay, a 15 minute walk, ended up being our favorite beach as it boasted similar rock formations as Horseshoe Bay but without all of the tourists! (Bring your own food & drink to John Smith’s Bay, however!) We utilized the taxi services since there were four people to split fares between, and never had to wait more than 10 minutes after calling the island taxi service on [the owner’s] landline. The apartment is central enough that it was never a long ride to Hamilton, Horseshoe Bay, Grotto Bay etc, and also has amazing views. We also pulled a few ‘late ones’ on our personal deck at the lower apartment which included music at medium levels as well as level medium banter, to which [the owner] expressed no problem with when we ran into her the next day. She even drove us to John Smith’s Bay right we arrived because she was heading that direction. The apartment is adorably decorated just as you’d imagine a beach cottage would be. The bed and the pull out sleep two people comfortably. [The owner] also remembered my friend’s birthday was Sunday, and came by that morning to say goodbye to us and happy birthday to him. Best hostess ever. Thank you! All best, Lillian, Faith, Thomas & Tennyson.

C29

I want to send a quick note about our recent stay in Bermuda (C29)as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. My husband and I had a very nice trip! Our arrival went smoothly. [The homeowner] greeted us when we got there and showed us around the apartment, which was just like the pictures, as well as very neat and tidy. Some of the nice touches were the little snacks that she had available and the bus passes to get into Hamilton the first time. We loved having Harrington Hundreds Grocery Store so close to us, even though for 3 of our 6 days they were on “holiday” hours. We bought a 4-day bus pass, and used both the #1 and #3 lines, which were also very close to the house. We were somewhat disappointed that the buses near our house stopped running between 6:30 and 7:00 pm, but on the other hand, we got our exercise by walking home after dinner (The Specialty Inn and an Italian restaurant in Flatts Village) a few times. What an adventure that was, walking the narrow streets at dusk. We really didn’t see [the homeowner] again until Thursday when I asked her if we could check out a little later, which she said was fine. We were a little concerned that we’d have a hard time getting a taxi to the airport due to Cup Match on Friday, but it all worked out fine. Overall, it was a very nice week. I’m really glad we chose to stay in a rental property versus doing a cruise because I feel we really got to know the island this way. Also, staying in a rental home was very affordable and more spacious than a hotel room. One other thing….the wireless connection was a huge plus. We brought our laptop and were able to keep in touch with everyone at home without worrying about using our cell phone.

Absolutely wonderful!

On behalf of my family, I’m sending this note of appreciation for your wonderful help in making our stay in Bermuda very enjoyable, hassle free and relaxing. Our hostess was at her house on our arrival to welcome us and to make sure that we had everything we needed. She was our source of local information from taxi, to sights, to food, restaurants, community, history…. One couldn’t ask for a better hostess. Our place was just right, it has a lovely view of the Atlantic Ocean, it is also very convenient in terms of food. The grocery is only 2 small blocks away. The closest beach is only 20 minutes walk from our place. Bermuda is clean, I think safe, people are friendly and helpful. The beaches are also one of the main attractions; the pink sand is soft on the feet. Scenery is beautiful, very green, the colourful houses are unique I think to Bermuda. We had a restful and enjoyable week.

Best one!!

My 20 yr old nephew and I just were hosted at the beautiful and spacious C29. I have booked through Bermuda Rentals many times before over the past 15 yrs, but this was the best apartment yet. Very quite and peaceful surroundings and the home-owner is simply a lovely host. I would highly recommend this property for your next Bermuda visit.
