Approximate taxi fare from the airport to C35 is $20 – $30. Please note – taxi rates may vary and are subject to change without notice.
For easy commuting around the island, the bus stops right outside the property gate. There are two bus services to choose from the Middle Road and the South Shore routes. Located half way between St. George’s and the main city of Hamilton (each approximately 20 minutes away), the closest beach is about 5 minutes up the South Shore Road at John Smith’s Bay via mopeds or the bus. There is bus service up and down Collectors Hill where you can connect to the South Shore bus that will take you over to John Smith’s Bay, or the tranquil Devonshire Bay, into Hamilton, or on to St. George’s. Plus, the airport is only a 15-minute taxi ride away!
PLEASE NOTE: Bus service to the door stops after 5pm- HOWEVER buy the bus passes and please note that you can take the #10 or #11 bus back from Hamilton or St. George’s late at night to Flatts and the taxi fare back to the house is only $8 + tip. Scooters are useful at this location.
Mopeds can be rented from Smatt’s Cycle Livery.
The property is walking distance to a grocery store, pharmacy, and two restaurants. Shopping in the neighbourhood includes a supermarket at the junction of Collectors Hill and the South Shore Road, where there is a pharmacy and a great little family style café called The Speciality Inn. They will be happy to serve you delicious home cooked meals at very reasonable prices. The Northrock Brewery Pub is also in the neighbourhood. Harrington Hundreds is another nearby supermarket with a fine selection of gourmet items, as well as liquor, beer and wine. They will deliver to the house for a fee. You pass Harrington Hundreds Grocery Store on the way to John Smith’s Bay Beach, so stop in and pick up fresh bread, cheese and some cool drinks on your way to the shore.
Drycleaners, a pizza parlour and a Post Office are also nearby. Flatts Village is five minutes away by bus or mopeds (and is a delightful village) with nice places to eat (Rusticos is particularly pleasant), gift and other shops as well as the Aquarium and Zoo. Sports activities include tennis courts (which can be booked at reasonable rates) at Grotto Bay Resort, which is 20-30 minutes away by bus.
Golfers will enjoy Ocean View in Devonshire. Mid Ocean Golf Course is also available to non-members from time to time: phone the morning you wish to go to see if there any slots open for you.
Spittal Pond is a south shore park on the way to John Smith’s Bay that features a salt-water marsh and a spectacular section of the rugged rocky coastline. Here one can see the inscription of the date 1543 carved in stone at Spanish Rock.
Hiking is enjoyable along the Railway Trail which runs from one end of the island to another, as well at Ferry Reach, Cooper’s Island (with simply spectacular beaches) and St. David’s Head, just a few of the larger and more interesting parks. Consult your detailed Bermuda map, available at Bermuda Bookstores for $4.95 for clearly marked areas and the best road instructions for the out of the way lanes and side roads.
Swimming and snorkelling are good on most beaches. However, Shelly Bay Beach (10 minutes away) is very safe, never has an undertow (as do many of the more turbulent South Shore beaches) and the caves around the headland offer excellent snorkelling. Tobacco Bay in St. George’s is a great beach year round – sheltered and with marvellous numbers of fish and a new and rather jazzy beachside cafe which is bound to be a hit! Diving, sailing and windsurfing are all available at Grotto Bay which is nearby. Tucker’s Point, a new and very exclusive resort also have dining rooms you can reserve.
Tom Moore’s Tavern serves wonderful meals in a gorgeous setting of mangrove, woods, and waterfront. Pink Beach Hotel also have a nice dining room you will want to investigate. Café reference from a guest “Best meal on the Island to date at Indigo in the Flatts. Tell your customers!!”
