Located at the crest of a hill with stupendous views of the Great and Little Sounds and east towards Gibbs Hill, the apartment is part of a large house located close to the pink and silver sands of Church Bay and Horseshoe beach. With superb snorkeling and scenic walking routes to explore, the spacious apartment has a convenient bus service at the bottom of the hill. The suite offers great convenience, beauty and tranquility for the couple looking for peaceful escape.
Your cozy bed is Queen sized – with a lovely view. The kitchen is fully equipped with china and linens plus a toaster, kettle, coffee maker, microwave oven, full sized fridge and stove. The living room/bedroom is comfortably furnished with armchairs etc. and has a walkout to the covered dining area and the gardens. Air-conditioning/heat for year round comfort! There is a great gas BBQ on the pool deck: PLEASE remember to turn the gas off when you are done. It is much more expensive to replace gas canisters in Bermuda.
Wifi internet, cable TV & DVD player, gas BBQ. DAZZLING POOL!
Washing machine/dryer. Hair dryer provided.
Bathtub and shower combo; beach towels available.
No pets and not wheelchair accessible: so very sorry.
The apartment enjoys a uniquely convenient location: for golf, for walking the famous South Shore beaches or swimming divinely turquoise waters…
The suite is within a mile or so of the famous Gibbs Hill Lighthouse with its breathtaking views. It also features a very chic restaurant and a gift shop too as a reward for all that stair climbing! Port Royal Golf Course, the Fairmont Southampton Course, and the Belmont Golf Course are all nearby along with the lovely Blu restaurant (at Belmont) overlooking most of the Great Sound, particularly pretty at sunset. Parks, picnics, horseback riding, boat tours and bus excursions are all easily managed from this location.
Nearby there is a popular family style café, 2 large grocery stores (The Marketplace and Henry’s Pantry- a convenience store that sells, milk, bread, beer, wine and liquor and other incidentals). Moped rentals are close by at Smatt’s Cycle Livery at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel or the cycle shop at The Reefs Resort.

The charming hamlet of Somerset Town is 10-15 minutes away by bus with shops and cafes, and just beyond the town is the 200 year old Naval Dockyard, now converted into a series of museums, with a shopping concourse, pubs, crafts market, a para-sail operation, charter boats, beach and bar facilities, etc. Ferry service back into Hamilton is regularly scheduled in addition to the bus service. There are very elegant hotels and fine dining available at this end of the island as well – one does not have to go into Hamilton to enjoy a good meal or cabaret. Casual dining would include The Swizzle Inn, Henry VIII pub, Gulf Stream, Pompano Resort, The Reefs and others along the seaside. The Waterlot Inn as part of the Fairmont Southampton suite of fine dining establishments is particularly nice, as is Cambridge Beaches resort. There are a number of spas as well to keep you glossy and beautiful if lounging on flawless beaches that stretch like great pink and white pearls along the coast does not keep you fully entertained.
The closest golf course would be at the Fairmont Southampton, with Port Royal 10 minutes or less west of your apartment.
The town of Hamilton is about 20-25 minutes away by bus, less by moped. One does have the attractive option of going over to Somerset or Dockyard (west of the apartment) for a jaunt across the harbour by ferry to Hamilton and on to St. George’s.
Reserve a day for St. George’s too- it is filled with fine architecture from the 1600’s onwards- and shows the unique connection to the American colonies as well as the British Empire.
Public Transportation: 2 bus routes are the Number 7 along the South Shore Road and Bus #8, the route which runs to Dockyard along Middle Road. The first bus from Hamilton is at 6:45am on weekdays, at 7:15am on Saturday and 9:45am on Sunday. The last bus from Dockyard is at 11:50pm on Monday – Saturday, and at 6:35pm on Sunday. Frequency of service during morning and daytime is every 30 minutes, and the service reduces towards late evening.
We encourage you to bring along a suitcase of frozen and prepared treats. You can import all foodstuffs for personal use without difficulty providing you do not bring in fresh produce or fresh seafood. Bringing coffee, tea, biscuits, condiments, tinned and packaged delectables as well as frozen steaks and fish will save you time, trouble and expense upon arrival. On your way in from the airport, I suggest you have your taxi driver stop off at the nearest market to pick up perishables such as milk, eggs and baked goods, with another stop for a bus pass if that’s what you will need.
These home owners can’t wait to meet you! Flight information (both arrival and departure) is absolutely necessary for guests to provide, so Melvin Outerbridge, our retired fire chief, can come and collect you at the airport.
