About a mile away, the larger beach at Church Bay awaits you. Ideal for those looking to relax, with panoramic ocean views, a private deck where you may enjoy a coffee as the fishing fleet head out, and a glass of wine as they chug back in. This location is ideal for the avid golfer and sports enthusiast as the premises is close to Port Royal golf course (not half a mile away) and the water-sports center at Somerset Bridge (3 miles approx). The house is located at the end of a quiet street about 500 feet from the bus stop. The house is air-conditioned throughout.

The house is ideally suited for a family or adults traveling together to celebrate a very special occasion. Furnished with a modern flair, with accessories such as a large flat screen television, cable, and wireless internet, the house is set-up for the today’s electronic traveler. Infants who cannot crawl can be accommodated if you bring your own carry cot (we can rent one for you but it’s expensive!) but not toddlers due to the large numbers of stairs on the property.
Pompano Resort, The Reefs, and The Fairmont Southampton Hotels are near the property and they offer a selection of different dining options including French, Italian, Asian Fusion and the highly regarded Gastro Pub. For a more intimate feel there is The Dining Room at Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse and Henry VIII on the South Shore – both independent restaurants offering a broad menu selection and the famous Swizzle Inn as well as the new Gulfstream dining establishment right across the road from the beach.
For the golfer Port Royal and the par 3 course at the Fairmont Southampton are all easily accessible and there is a floodlit driving range that is located nearby as well… The watersports center at Somerset Bridge offers scuba diving, jet ski, kayak, and small boat rentals. For those that are after more of an aerobic workout the Bermuda Railway Trail is very accessible providing a scenic walking/running route in a traffic-free environment. Hog Bay Park and Scaur Bay, two of Bermuda’s National Parks are nearby as well as the wonderful Vesey Nature Reserve. These parks show you otherwise invisible sections of Bermuda- farms, wild coastline, secret coves- and other friendly walkers happy to stop and say hello! For those that enjoy cycling pedal bike rentals can be arranged at the various cycle liveries (we recommend Smatt’s Cycle Shop at the Fairmont Southampton location) and storage is available for those that choose to bring their own bikes.
Whale Bay and the stunning Church Bay offer wonderful South Shore snorkelling opportunities as well as pink, shell strewn beaches to explore. The famous ones such as Horseshoe Bay and Warwick Long Bay are renowned, but you will not want to miss the stunning trio of secret coves tucked between those two larger beaches – Chaplin Bay, Stonehole Bay and Jobson’s Cove. These three are the last word in romantic pink sand and gentle surf in splendid seclusion. Snorkeling equipment can be rented at several of the larger beaches such as Horseshoe. Slightly closer than Hamilton for fine dining are the excellent facilities of The Reefs Resort in Southampton: their open-air Coconuts restaurant overlooking their private silvery sand beach will arrange a table on the beach with candles, full linens and silverware and delectable meal for your never-to-be-forgotten evening celebration. One must reserve ahead to make arrangements. No reservations required for lunch however! Another wonderful dining location is the Waterlot Inn near the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, on the banks of the harbour – gorgeous outdoor patio and fabulous cuisine.
There are three golf courses nearby for you to play: The Belmont Golf Course, the Fairmont Southampton Golf Club and the Port Royal Golf Course are all within a few minutes of the property and each offers its own unique challenge.
A Sandy’s location is considered to be a very attractive option for visitors. Although the locations in the closest proximity to the beaches of the South Shore tend to be in the most demand, the 23 mile length of the island and its width of less than a mile in most places means that access to those beaches is easy by bus or by moped, and that’s only after you have savoured the pretty beaches in the immediate area…
Sandys has the advantage of being close to ferry stops at Rockaway, and the charming village of Somerset where shops and cafes makes lingering for a while a very pleasant diversion. The remarkable renovated installation at the Naval Dockyard property (a British Navy base built in the early 1820’s) has created a plaza and shopping concourse as well as a series of excellent museums, pubs, artists workshops, book stores and the like as well as the hugely popular DOLPHIN QUEST operation- and another ferry stop as well as a terminus for the bus system. These shops and museums operations are all neatly contained in spectacularly restored historic buildings dotted throughout a park setting on the furthest west end of the island. Fast ferries and buses depart and arrive from the Dockyard facility all day long. The views from The Commissioner’s House are from one end of the island to another, with ocean liners sedately negotiating the Two Rock Passage, the sole opening in the reefs large enough to provide safe access to Hamilton Harbour. A visit to Bermuda without seeing Dockyard would not be complete. The Railway Trail, a meandering paved pathway through the countryside you can explore on foot or by moped runs intermittently through the island. The Trail is the land right of way owned by the government for long defunct railway system. No cars or trucks are allowed upon it, so the amble will take you through beautiful park like settings overlooking the water and the interesting new and ancient farms and homes and gardens you would not otherwise notice.
Fine dining would include Cambridge Beaches in Somerset and the various dining rooms associated with the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, as well as nice roadside cafes for breakfast or lunch.
The City of Hamilton also has lovely places to dine and shop, and in the summer months through to October, Harbour Nights on Front Street on Wednesday evenings is a sparkling outdoor market event. With live music, delicious food and unusual locally made items to buy, the street is shut to vehicular traffic and the better shops remain open. Everyone congregates happily til 10 pm. and then drifts off to window-shop, or investigate the night clubs, bars and cafes. The city is easily reached by bus, ferry or moped, with taxis available to whisk you away home at the end of the evening.
We encourage you to bring along a box 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.
For guests staying at this location, Smatt’s Cycle Livery in Southampton at the Fairmont Hotel will be your most convenient location for securing a moped. Contact Smatt’s at 441-238-7800.
Flight information (both arrival and departure) is absolutely necessary for guests to provide.

The house has 2 tiny apartments on the pool level – completely separate from the rented house and sharing NO common space. These units are used by the owner or her father occasionally throughout the year, when he is not at his home abroad and when the owner is not staying with family. She prefers to stay with family when guests are in residence in an effort to ensure your privacy. The pool area is never used by the occupants of these apartments and is solely for the use of guests staying at W59. Check with us for the owners schedule if this is important for you to know.
