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 Fairmont Southampton (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. George’s. 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 or Twizy rentals are not your style!
The Railway Trail is nearby as well, and offers a peek into Old Bermuda, as the trail winds 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 Fairmont Southampton Golf Course and Port Royal are both in the western end of the island. The Somerset Bridge Post Office has free internet for people who do not have a laptop.
House rentals require a lease and a security damage deposit. The balance payment is made 8 weeks in advance of the tenancy commencement. We read the electricity meter at the beginning and at the end of your visit: included in the price is $200.00 a week’s worth of power and if you go over that, the overage is deducted from the damage deposit. Electricity costs 330% more in Bermuda than in the USA, and you are requested and expected to conserve by turning off air-conditioning when you go out, hanging clothes on the line to dry whenever possible, etc. Included is an allotment of $200.00 a week’s worth of water as well. We just ask you to respect island conservation measures at all times.
There is a boat rental a minute walk down the street at the dock in Mangrove Bay. Lasers, kayaks, Boston Whalers, and all the snorkel gear you’ll need for rent is available there. We recommend Oleander Cycles as they have a kiosk next door at the Cambridge Beach Hotel and will also deliver.
Key points of interest are the Crystal Caves, The Royal Naval Dockyard, and Maritime Museum.
Discount rate available for families and groups for Segway tours, must be 16 yrs and over. This can be arranged with the owner when booking.
