The living room is spacious and has spectacular views from the picture windows. The dining room adjoins the large and well equipped modern kitchen which is in turn linked to the sit-down breakfast area, laundry room and family room ~ complete with television and VCR. All principal rooms enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean…

Amenities: dishwasher, gas stove, microwave, refrigerator, washer and dryer and a propane operated gas barbecue.

There is a new HD TV in the family room. There is a TV in the master bedroom and a TV in the en suite bedroom. There is a portable TV that can be used as a DVD player.

Sliding glass doors open onto the balcony overlooking the terraced pool with its array of comfortable furniture and the gazebo. The views towards the sunset are wonderful…

Bus stops are immediately in front of the property. One is just across the street and goes west towards the Dockyard, and there is another about 30 feet left of the driveway that goes east towards Hamilton.

Close to home, you will have the pleasure of exploring the spectacular beaches along the southern coastline: 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. Snorkelling equipment can be rented at Church Bay and several of the larger beaches such as Horseshoe. 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 by calling: 441-238-0222.No reservations required for lunch however!

There are four golf courses nearby for you to play: Riddells Bay, The Belmont Golf Course, The Fairmont Southampton Golf Club and the Port Royal Golf Course are all within 10 minutes of the property and each offers its own unique challenge.

A Southampton location is considered to be a very attractive option for visitors in the know. Although the locations in the closest proximity to the beaches of the South Shore tend to be in the most demand, the 22 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….

Somerset Long Bay is a quiet beach in the West end that you will want to explore… as well as The Railway Trail, a meandering paved pathway through the countryside you can explore on foot or by moped. 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 homes and gardens you would not otherwise notice.

Fine dining would include Cambridge Beaches in Somerset and the Newport Room of The Fairmont Southampton Princess, 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 (Rockaway Wharf is nearby) or moped, with taxis available to whisk you away home at the end of the evening.

Stunning

Please let the owner know her home is lovely: I felt like a princess floating in the pool! And that the grounds are stunning…I explored them daily and enjoyed listening to [the property manager] talk about the gardens. The wives of the sailors were able to curb some of their anxiety while waiting at this beautiful place, especially the front porch in the afternoon. Thank you for all of your help in getting this together, if our sailors do this race again, we will certainly be in touch…

Fabulous

We are just back from another fabulous vacation in our favorite island of Bermuda! My husband and I brought our three adult sons and our daughter in law, and as always, you arranged the perfect home for us. It was situated on our own bay and had a beautiful fresh water pool, which was everyones favorite amenity! As you know, we have used your company for many years and have never been disappointed in any way. We will not ever use another company for any of our future trips to Bermuda! Thank you for helping us to create many lovely memories!

Perfect

We stayed at W15 in June 2016. It was a totally perfect family vacation (6 adults and 2 children, ages 4 and 6). The pool was the highlight: clean, refreshing, with amazing views from the pool deck out over the Bay. The diving board and slide kept the kids (and adults…) entertained for days, playing games, relaxing, and just having a blast. The house is set on a very nicely sized property, with some lovely gardens, and you feel like you have a beautiful corner of Bermuda all to yourself. We barely heard a neighbor all week. The House: The owner recently built a permanent sunshade over a portion of the pool deck, which was great as it was nice to escape the sun during the hot afternoons. Inside the house the decor and furniture is a little dated, but very spacious and comfortable, with large, quiet bedrooms (great views from the master bedroom), and plenty of dining and living space. We cooked every night and the kitchen was sufficiently equipped (pans, silverware, coffee makers, etc.). The outdoor grill was great and we used it every night, and the picnic table by the pool was perfect for evening cocktails and dinner. The flies were only annoying at sundown, and bug-spray usually did the trick.The air-conditioning worked great throughout the house (window units in each room). The Bay: There is a concrete ramp from the garden down to the Bay but it is a bit slippery. If you bring aquasocks it’s easy enough to go for a lovely swim in the clean and clear water, though. We didn’t use this ramp often, however, as the pool was so great. Housekeeper, Gardener & Rental Agency: The housekeeper was very kind and welcoming. The gardener was very nice and helpful answering our questions. The owner of the house gave us a very nice phone call a few days before departure, giving us restaurant recommendations and other tips. The rental agency was also very professional and easy to work with, and we received our full deposit back a month after the trip. Transportation: We found it was very helpful to have at least one scooter (which can be rented from Oleander at the Reefs Resort, a 15-20 minute walk from the house), and one person willing to ride it, to run errands. Note that the scooters are a little tricky to learn to drive, so make sure you have someone who’s confident/experienced. There is a bus stop right in front of the house, which was very convenient. We bought bus passes at the Post Office on Middle Road, a 10 minute walk east from the house. But note, the Post Office is NOT open on weekends. The buses are very clean and efficient, though sometimes you wait 10-15 minutes for the right bus. We took buses, with the kids, all over the island to see various attractions. We took a taxi to/from the airport. I think it was about $50 and was very easy to arrange (the rental agency gave us the name of their preferred driver, or you can pick one up very easily at the airport). There are phone numbers for taxis on the fridge and in the welcome booklet. Local calls from the house were free. Groceries: The best market we found was Heron Bay Market on Middle Road back toward Hamilton and a 10 or 15-minute scooter ride away. The store is very well-stocked, comparable to a small Shaw’s or Stop&Shop. We did a grocery run every morning or two on the scooter. Alternatively, you could try to take taxis or the bus to the market. We took the rental agency’s advice and took a big bag of frozen meats and other staples on the plane, which was actually very easy and made shopping much easier, and cheaper. The grocery prices were more expensive than US prices, as the rental agency told us. There was sometimes a small vegetable stand near the house, on Middle Road, but the selection wasn’t terrific when we were there. Beaches: Church Bay Beach was quite walkable (10-15 minutes) and extremely pretty. Morning visits to this beach were the best, as it got more crowded in the afternoon, as it is a small beach. The snorkeling was very cool, though there’s no equipment rental. Other beaches (Horseshoe, Elbow, etc.) required taking a bus, which was fine though and made for a great day-trip. Tennis: We found courts at Port Royal Club (10 minute scooter ride from the house) that are free and no seems to know about them. No amenities (bathrooms, etc.) but the courts are nicely tucked away at the base of golf course and have decent quality surfaces/nets. Overall, probably the ONLY downside to the house was that it’s in quite a residential area, and not in walking distance to much else besides Church Bay Beach. Definitely plan to rent scooters, or take the bus or taxis, if you plan on touring the island, shopping for food, etc. But we knew all this going in and it all worked out so well. The upside is that you’re at a very large, private house with a great pool, all to yourself! And did I mention the views? 😉

Amazing

Our stay at W15 was just as amazing this year as it was in 1999. My husband and I went with 2 other couples and we were all comfortable.The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and appliances, plenty of linens, bedrooms were comfortable, A/C, TVs, washer/dryer all work fine. etc. The pool was great and we even used the diving board and slide. W15 is in a fabulous location and is an easy moped ride to anything on the island. There are convenient grocery stores within a 5-10 minute ride in either direction. Our experience with Fiona Campbell, as our realtor, was excellent as always. We have used Fiona for our lodging needs in Bermuda 8 times and we have always had great service. Highly recommend!

Beautiful

W15 on the North Shore is a lovely home in a positively gorgeous location. Set well back from the road it sits high on a bluff overlooking a wide expanse of Herrington Sound’s beautiful waters. On a lower terraced level accessed by a stone stairway is the pool, large, well-maintained and with both sun and shade available all day, with a perfect moongate and yellowbirds moving about. Another 20 feet down is the water’s edge – unfortunately there is no beach, only rocky coral – and the remains of an old marine railway. Over to the edge of the property are the ruins of a building of some kind – no one seems to have a clue about its history or use – and a vegetable garden beautifully tended by the groundskeeper. But the real story is the view, the view. Beautiful at any time of day, from sunrise to sunset, with pleasure boats plying the waters of Herrington Sound, cruise ships docking or undocking at The Dockyard, some three to four miles distant, Bermuda longtails on the wing, and the occasional regatta. Heaven on earth! And the grounds are beautifully maintained also. The house is both large and very comfortable. Two of the bedrooms are large, while two are on the small side. Three bedrooms have en suite full baths and one an ensuite half bath. Beds are comfortable and two bedrooms have TV. There is a large living room and full-size dining room, plus a large family room and a spacious kitchen; furnishings are not super luxe but are adequate. The kitchen is as well equipped as most good home kitchens. In its position atop the bluff there is almost always a breeze, and air conditioning usage can be minimal. The gas grill is functional. The groundskeeper and housekeeper are delightful people. The groundskeeper is on the property every day and was wonderful about supplying us with fresh produce from the garden. We were told that he is also willing to provide close-to-home transportation, but we did not use this service. The housekeeper comes in twice a week, chiefly to do laundry; she is very personable, a joy to chat with and a great source of information about the island. The bus stops at or near the foot of the driveway, perhaps 50 yards from the house (absolutely no road noise in the house, however) a wonderful convenience for those who can’t or won’t ride scooters or who want to avoid taxis. (W15 is a goodly distance from Hamilton, The Dockyard and St. George’s, and taxis can get very expensive.) The bus will take you everywhere on the island; the drivers, like almost all Bermudians, are friendly, polite and helpful, as are the other passengers. Whether by bus or by taxi, allow plenty of time for travel. All in all it would be hard to find a better place to while away a week. Yes, it’s expensive, but especially for three or four couples, not unduly so.
