Special Winter Monthly Rate: $5,000 per month

Our new cottage stands in luxuriant foliage in the extensive grounds of a large house with commanding views over Harrington Sound. It is close to Knapton Hill and the beautiful John Smith’s Bay with a sun-warmed pool for those looking to swim at the property.

The gardens are overflowing with the bounty of the owners’ hobby – rare fruit trees, cascading spices such as rosemary, and flowers heavy with scent. The massive passion flowers are the loveliest I have ever seen… be sure to ask for a tour. To the south, not 5 minutes away by moped (and about 15 minutes on foot) is the fabled John Smith’s Bay Beach, Spittal Pond Nature reserve with a salt water marsh, rock-pools, and extensive native plantings, as well as the renowned Harrington Hundreds Grocery Store – purveyors of fine food and a very handsome wine, beer and spirits inventory. There is a bus service nearby as well but it does not run late into the evening.

Bedroom: The master bedroom is a good size with queen-size bed and copious storage. The bathroom is just outside the bedroom door and off the livingroom where a comfortable double sleep sofa can accommodate a third guest.

Living Room: Comfortable furniture with flat screen TV, and wireless internet. The TV can be angled to be viewed from the bedroom as well.

Bathroom: Has a wonderful deep soaker tub as well as a shower, sink, toilet, and a drying rack for your lingerie (iron and ironing board stored in the bedroom).

Kitchen: Modern kitchen includes oven, stove top, large fridge with large freezer compartment, kettle, and toaster and is fully-equipped with cookware and utensils. There is a square table in the dining area which comfortably seats 4.

Garden: Lounge furniture is available around the pool as well as wooden table and chairs, umbrella, gas barbeque etc.

Laundry room: Located in a closet: may be used by guests staying 7 nights or more only.

Pool: The pool is 25 metres and 5.5 feet deep. Please let us know in advance if you would like the pool heated for your stay (can only be by a few degrees).

This beautiful little cottage house is equipped with cable TV, wireless internet access, split-unit air conditioners, ceiling fans, and telephone for local calls only. Bath linens and beach towels are provided. A hair dryer is available for your use.

No housekeeping service available as this unit is self-catering only.

  • Less than 1 mile from Harrington Hundreds Grocery Store – very easy walking distance
  • Several restaurants in Flatts village including Rustico which is very good and several more at Collectors Hill. Flatts is not more than a mile and a half, easily walkable in daylight
  • St. Patricks Catholic Church is just before Collectors Hill on the South Shore Road, not more than two and a half miles – and 5 minutes by the bus heading into Hamilton.

**This property is not suitable for infants and toddlers**

Nearby Attractions

John Smith’s Bay is a well kept local secret- a quiet beach with deep soft pink sands that slope into quiet waters without the buffeting of heavy wave action or undertows. Locals like to take huge picnic baskets to the beach in the early evening when all the tourists have disappeared back to their hotels. 

Nearby is Spittal Pond: don’t let the unattractive name put you off! It’s a sturdy walk up hill and down dale surrounding a salt water marsh, terminating in breathtaking vistas of waves crashing on the rocks, rock pools filled with interesting sea life, ancient rocks carved with the initials of poor souls swept in here in the 1500’s- rife with history, birds, plants, and trees, including Bay Grapes (exceedingly tart) and Prickly Pears (very like pomegranates in taste) that grow thornily on heavy cactus. Don’t tackle that plant unless you know what you are doing! An excellent hand-guide to the island is: A Naturalist’s Field Guide to Bermuda (Martin L Thomas), which can be bought online. Migratory birds flock to the marsh, sunk between the coastal hills and the ridge along which the South Road meanders. The quiet is absolute and the collection of native species means that you have a feel for what the original settlers experienced when they arrived – the low palmetto trees, the sedges and vines, the scent of deep vegetation underfoot, and the flowers scrambling up into the sunlight. The coastline here is quite wild – rock pools and crashing waves, driftwood, and the reefs clearly apparent above the swells. Bring stout shoes, drinks and sunscreen and go exploring!

The most excellent Harrington Hundreds grocery store offers every delicacy. However, we take frozen meat and fish with us and our coffee, tea, biscuits etc. with us so we have less shopping to do when we arrive. Then you only have to stop in for eggs, milk and bread, plus fruit and salad makings.

There is a bus stop heading west to Hamilton just a couple of minutes walk from the property down by Harrington Hundreds Grocery. The Specialty Inn, a family style restaurant with sushi, local dishes, sandwiches and delicious hamburgers, is about a 5 minutes ride down South Road at the crossroads of South Shore Road and Collector’s Hill. You may see movie stars here too: its down-home atmosphere belies the delicious local fare that is served here.

Perfect

We recently stayed at the rental C08. It was fantastic! The view was amazing, and the location was perfect. It was near a grocery store, and between St. George and Hamilton which were within easy travel distance. The homeowners were extremely helpful and nice. They gave us helpful hints about the island, and made us feel at home. I would recommend this property to anyone and a Bermuda trip to everyone as well. The island is beautiful, there is many things to do and the people are friendly as well.

Beautiful garden setting with views

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage which we would highly recommend. It is perfect for a couple, very attractively decorated and immaculate. Everything we could need for our week's stay was provided and the kitchen was well outfitted. Such a lovely setting in a beautiful, large garden with lovely views and very quiet. The owners are some of the nicest we have rented from, very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We chose this central location to easily visit Hamilton and St. George's and were pleasantly surprised to find the bus stop is only a few minutes walk. For a different route or more frequency you can walk down to the nearby grocery store or into Flatt's village... a great location.

Thank you for our stay in your apartment. Plenty of linens, towels and the bed linen was gorgeous. Constant hot water. Excellent cutlery and crockery. Air conditioning in the two main rooms was good if required.

Lovely Accommodations!

It was a perfect space for our honeymoon! The place was clean, the owners were welcoming/responsive, and because it's located in the middle of the island, it's a great location for going to one end or the other end of the island. We'll definitely be back!

Had a nice time

The stay was good. This is our third time using your company. The location was a little off the beaten path which wasn't a problem. The actual place was nice and had everything we needed. Everything was updated. The owners were nice too.

Absolutely loved our time!

We absolutely loved our time at C08! We loved the peaceful, tranquil environment from the wonderful gardens to watching glorious sunsets every night to swimming in the pool. The cottage was perfect…a kitchen full of new appliances, a large bathtub to soak in, and a comfortable, quiet bedroom to rest in. We loved eating the cherries that grew on the property. The grocery store was close and convenient. We loved the location which was close to everything we wanted to do. The owners were incredibly gracious and friendly and ensured we had everything we needed to make our vacation more enjoyable. We highly recommend this cottage and can’t wait to come back!

PERFECT!

PERFECT! The cottage was absolutely perfect. We were very fortunate to have found this place; it was immaculate, state-of-the-art appliances, situated on a beautiful property with private pool access… it truly was paradise! The homeowners thought of every detail to make our stay comfortable, down to the fresh Brita water in the fridge! We unfortunately didn’t get to meet the gracious hosts during our stay, but the neighbours were so pleasant and helpful and it was the perfect vacation. I’d also like to say that my fiance proposed to me during this trip, so Bermuda is extra special to us. Thank you for the most beautiful accommodations and thank you for making our trip that much more memorable. Already planning our next trip!
