Immaculate apartments located in a quiet neighborhood with great views of Ely’s Harbour, and just a few minutes walk to a good bus line. Near the village of Somerset and overlooking the boats bobbing at their moorings, this is a tranquil spot in which to recuperate and regroup before you head off to explore all the beauties of the island.

W16:  The fresh bedroom has a Double bed as well as plenty of storage, and the spacious living room has a Queen roll-out sofa. For your comfort, there is air conditioning as well as ceiling fans throughout the unit. There is wireless internet access and TV with cable at this apartment. The updated kitchen has storage, stainless steel refrigerator with freezer, stove, oven, toaster, kettle, and microwave. For your convenience, there is also a front-loading washer and clothes dryer. Water is a precious resource in Bermuda, so we ask that guests conserve water whenever possible. For your cooking needs, there is also a barbecue available outdoors, where you can also walk along the property to view Ely’s Harbour.

W16A: The Studio Apartment, is well-equipped for your needs, and includes a Queen bed and a three-piece bath (with shower/tub) including bath linens. We request that you bring your own beach towels. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator/freezer, as well as a stove, oven, microwave, toaster, pots and pans, cooking utensils, kettle, coffee maker, and a basic supply of dishwashing soap. There is also a BBQ available outdoors! Meals can be enjoyed in the Studio at the dining table for two, or outside on the terrace which has two chairs and a table, and views of Ely’s Harbour. The apartment also includes A/C and heat, ceiling fan, wireless internet, flat screen TV with cable, iron, and ironing board. Laundry machines can be made available upon request for stays of 8 nights or more only, as utilities are very expensive in Bermuda.

When rented together, W16 and W16A would make comfortable and ideal accommodations for 4-5 guests. The units are a few steps away, allowing each group privacy, yet fantastic gathering areas in the gardens and the outdoor patios.

Nearby Attractions

Public transportation by bus is outside the main gate (a 5 minute walk) or at Somerset Fast Ferry Stop- 6 minutes away by bus heading east. Heading west, ferries can readily be caught at Dockyard. Although its possible to swim from the shore, a sandy beach is nearby at Somerset Long Bay. Heading further east, Whale Bay and the stunning Church Bay offer wonderful South Shore snorkeling opportunities as well as pink, shell strewn beaches to explore. Snorkeling equipment can be rented at Church Bay and several of the larger beaches such as Horseshoe. A mile and a half along the coast is Horseshoe Bay, and the trio of simply exquisite coves known as Chaplin Bay, Stonehole Bay and Jobson’s Cove secreted between Horseshoe and Warwick Long Bay. All these lovely beaches are within 10 minutes moped ride of your accommodations in Somerset.

Fine dining would have to include Cambridge Beaches in Somerset and the renowned dining-rooms at The Reefs in Southampton. The Fairmont Southampton Hotel and the Waterlot Inn also provides a fine dining experience along with an excellent golf course. Port Royal Golf Course and Riddell’s Bay Golf Course would also make you most welcome. One of the outstanding distinctions of a Somerset location is the access to the public transportation and the proximity to Naval Dockyard. The maritime installation was established by the British in the 1820’s to provide a re-provisioning base for the navy: the extraordinary buildings have been refurbished and converted into museums, shops and cafes on a promontory that has a commanding view of the entire island. A visit to Bermuda without see Dockyard would not be complete.

I just wanted to write to let everyone know who is considering renting this property that we could not have made a better decision! The property is extremely clean and in a very nice area. The lovely homeowners live right next door but give you complete privacy. They were such a help to us, that they actually took us to the grocery store when we first arrived to help us get ready for the week, and then gave us a couple of bus tickets to use to get to a location to buy our passes for the week. There is also laundry equipment in your kitchen, so even though we tried to conserve by not using them, when we were covered in sand and stuck out in the rain on the way back one day, they were an excellent thing to have access to. The 7 and 8 bus stop is about a 3-5 minute walk down a side street and then just around the bend on the main road. It was easy to get to and the buses run late so you won’t have a problem getting anywhere you want to go. Also, the Dockyard is only 10 minutes by bus, and although I don’t recommend spending much time there as it is just a tourist trap, you can catch the ferry to Hamilton or St. George’s and save yourself a bunch of time versus riding the buses. Fort Scaur is only a short walk away, providing for beautiful sunsets. Also, if you are looking for a quiet, off the tourist beaten path beach that is only about five minutes away by bus, there is Somerset Bay Beach. The driver they recommend, is wonderful. We can say, without a doubt, we would come back and stay at this property again if we can ever get back to Bermuda. Thank you so much for letting us stay!
