Description

Summer Price (2018): $200 per night for 2 guests, 5 night minimum charge.
Winter Price (Nov. 15 – Mar 31): $165 per night for 2 guests, 5 night minimum charge.

Our lovingly restored 1 bedroom cottage in Paget Parish overlooks the Hamilton Harbour and the city, and it has a dock for swimming! Only a 15 minute walk to Elbow Beach.

This wonderful cottage offers air-conditioning, cable TV, Wifi, telephone (for local calls only), a charcoal BBQ, and there is even access to the water! 180 degree water views directly over the Harbour, use of private dock, patio lounging chairs, sun loungers, outdoor table and chairs, sun umbrella and hammock. The cottage is situated behind the main house and is therefore very quiet and totally protected from traffic.

The property does not suit children. Pets are welcome with a $250 deposit paid on arrival to cover the costs of deep cleaning the apartment after departure.

Full kitchen: Fridge/freezer, electric range, microwave, toaster oven, electric kettle, toaster, cafetiere (French press coffee pot) and a Keurig coffee maker in the kitchen. There is cable TV in the living room and a private charcoal kettle BBQ for the cottage.

No maid service: cleaning materials supplied and maid service for an extra charge. The Cottage is completely independent and self-catering. It consists of a living room with an open wood-burning fireplace. There are steps up to the bedroom above and steps down to a private terrace overlooking the water. Off the living room is a fully-equipped eat-in kitchen and the small bathroom which has a generous-sized shower (no tub) and heated towel rail for dry towels. Beach towels will be provided.

Up the stairs is the loft-style bedroom and dressing room. There is a king size bed and lovely water views on three sides. Furnishings are simple but comfortable and comprehensive. There are extensive grounds and a private dock for swimming and sun bathing. There is reverse cycle air-conditioning for use ONLY AT NIGHT if needed. There is also a variable speed ceiling fan in the bedroom.

The house is a fresh and spacious home in the centre of every attraction available locally: the beach, the main town of Hamilton, and easy access to transportation west to Somerset and the attractions of Dockyard (museums, pubs, dolphins!) or east to Crystal Caves, Flatts Village and St George’s- and all the parks and beaches in between… Perhaps most importantly, the house is situated close to the greatest length of coastal beaches on the island. The fabled South Shore commences with Grape Bay and Elbow Beach, and carries on, uninterrupted, to the west through Warwick to Southampton Parish to Church Bay. One bus meandering down that coastline will give you a new beach to fall in love with every day for 10 days. One of the other great attractions of the cottage is its proximity to the main city of Hamilton. Such a location well suits the business traveler, for shopping and the cute bars and places to dine. 

Beach chairs are rented at Elbow Beach from May onwards. The closest restaurants are Mickeys On The Beach at the Elbow Beach Resort, Sanzibar and Beau Rivage at Newstead Resort (the Newstead Resort also offers a spa). If you are looking for a convenience store, the closest would be Lindos or A1 Supermarket. Oleander’s is nearby for moped rentals, and the closest bus stop is a 5 minute walk away on Middle Road, by the end of Chapel Road. The nearest ferry stop is Hodson’s Ferry stop near Newstead, no more than a 5 minute walk from C108.

Paget Parish features immaculately manicured gardens, handsome and historically significant estates with magnificent gardens, glamorous hotels, flowers and pretty little roadside shops, galleries, cafes and churches everywhere you look.

A short walk takes one to the #7 bus route which travels along South Shore Road. The spectacular Elbow Beach Hotel offers lunch, bar services, evening dining and entertainment for a night out. 

Nearby Amenities

Modern Mart Grocery Store. Paraquet Restaurant family style diner is a 15 minute walk. High end dining facilities nearby would include the various restaurants at the Elbow Beach Hotel, Four Ways Inn, The Reefs, Blu at the Belmont Golf Course, The Fairmont Princess Hotel and The Waterlot, as well as many others in Hamilton. There are some very good roadside cafes and pubs too.

Smatt’s Cycle Livery or Oleander Cycles will come and pick guests up who want to use mopeds.

Full flight details are required for pick up service at the airport: the taxi fare is not included but will be a metered driver. Golf arrangements can also be made.

Laundry facilities can be provided for extended stays, but clothes are line dried whenever possible due to the formidable cost of electricity (which is generated by the burning of Venezuelan oil in Bermuda). Ample linens are provided. Guests are asked to turn off air-conditioning and electric lights when they go out, and to conserve water at all times to help keep overheads low. We look forward to meeting you and making you most welcome!

There is a strict no smoking policy in effect. There is a smoke alarm fitted, a fire blanket and two small fire extinguishers in the kitchen. The home owner is not liable for any loss, damage or personal injury while the guests are on this property. Guests must take steps to ensure that they have adequate insurance to cover such eventualities and be aware of this stipulation. We ask guests to switch off lights and the AC when they go out, and be parsimonious with the water so precious island resources may be preserved.

What a fabulous place!

My husband and I stayed at C108 in October. The weather was gorgeous and warm, and the cottage was perfection. My mother is Bermudian so I have been going to Bermuda since I was a baby. The main house along with the cottage are characteristic of old Bermuda homes and the large estate is full of beatiful trees and flowers. The harbour location was perfect for swimming, with a close up view of Hamilton whilst you relax on the veranda watching the sunrise and sunset. The ferry stop to Hamilton is literally a two minute walk from the cottage. The interior of the cottage is prettily decorated with lots of artwork including beautiful watercolors by the owner (a well known Bermudian artist). Paget is a beautiful parish. The grocery store and bus stop are within walking distance. The property manager was congenial and extremely helpful to us. I can’t recommend this property or the island enough - - Bermudians are the friendliest people you will ever meet, courteous and generous to visitors. The island is a colorful jewel in the middle of the ocean. Pure paradise.

AMAZING!

C108 was AMAZING! The cottage is VERY well equipped with everything you might need. (including iron & blow dryer) The binder that is provided gives great tips & tools to make your stay even better. The location is central to the island. A 20 minute hike across the island to one of the best beaches. Five minute walk to the ferries that takes you across to Hamilton. A 10 minute hike to the bus stop that can take you either direction. At night the taxi to the cottage ranges from $12 - $15 USD. There is not a bus stop that runs along Harbour Road, so be prepared to taxi it home after being out on the town. The deck outside has a million dollar view of the water and Hamilton with direct water access down the large property. Should be noted that the deck is actually larger than it appears in the photos provided. You can sit on the lounger, have a beverage and read all while enjoying the incredible view. Or if you feel like it go on the hammock under the shaded trees. The resident property manager responds VERY quickly to any questions. I would say concerns, but we never had any! The designs details of pictures and personal touches were very nice. Kitchen is VERY well equipped with anything you might need. The bathroom is small but I did not care as it had a basic shower, which is all I needed. Something to NOTE: the cabin is exceptionally clean with no bugs. The only time you might experience the tiny little ants is if you leave food out - which you would or should not do in any tropical location. The counters in the kitchen are white so trust me I looked. The only concern to people considering booking the cabin is the stairs to the bedroom. I did not have an issue as I was very careful. If you have to get up often in the middle of the night or have bad knees they are steep. This was my first visit to Bermuda and if I were to come back this is the place I would stay. The neighourhood is very quiet (except for the tiny brown frogs at night chirping) and beautiful. I easily give the cottage a 5 stars plus!

Will definitely return!

This is our 11th trip to Bermuda and C108 is our new favorite place to stay! An extraordinary view and central location helped to make this our new preferred home away from home when visiting the island. We couldn't be happier with our experience. Many thanks to our gracious host for providing the setting for a glorious holiday!

Perfect place for a long weekend in Bermuda!

We had a wonderful stay at C108! It was perfect for two - with a nice patio and dock for swimming. The location was great - although your restaurant choices within walking distance is very limited. The ferry is just a couple minutes away by foot which can easily take you into Hamilton. We did that a few times for dinner and took a taxi home as the ferry stops at 6ish on weekends and 8 ish during the week. We rented scooters from Oleander Cycles. I highly recommend renting scooters if you want to have the freedom to explore the island. We spent one day exploring the shops and beaches in St.George and the next day checking out beaching along the way to the dockyard. It's a bit nerve racking at first because it's pretty curvy and getting used to driving on the left!! The property manager was very receptive to our needs and even left milk and muffins for us as our flight got in very late. We found some great place to eat, The Swizzle, and The Hog Penny were great. Beau Rivage was just next to the ferry stop. We didn't eat there but did enjoy their tapas bar (I forgot the name) Really we didn't have a bad meal the whole time we were there. This was our first trip to Bermuda. Our entire trip was amazing! We plan on going back someday and would definitely stay at C108 again!! Thank you {homeowner} (wish we could have met you) for sharing your wonderful cottage with us!

The BEST place!

Our trip was AMAZING!!! C108 is honestly one of the best spots I think to stay. Seeing other cottages on the water or hotels lots had signs no swimming from dock. We used the dock and the slide. Which was pretty bad ass by the way. The property is stunning. We would def rent c108 again in a heartbeat.

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at C108 back in December. [The home owner] was wonderful and the cottage had absolutely everything we could have needed. The location was great and the views were amazing! Thanks again for helping us arrange our stay there!

We had a lovely, comfortable stay in this adorable cottage. The dock was a great benefit for a late afternoon swim in the harbor. We enjoyed our taxi rides with the driver recommended in the instruction/info book at the cottage. The ferry to Hamilton was a 5 minute walk up the road. We hope to come back to stay in here again.

C108

My 14 year old grandson (celebrated with a perfect bbq with friends at the cottage) spent a week at C108 Cottage and quite simply, we can’t wait to go back. It was perfect for us in so many ways. The location is perfect…1/2 way to Dockyard and 1/2 way to St. Georges. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in, to bbq, or to bring in take out and eat it out back. There is a hammock that next time I will relax on with my libation of choice. The pictures really do give you a perfect account of the furnishings. There is a downstairs air conditioner that cools quickly when you return from a “hard” day on the island. Full sized refrigerator, small but functional bathroom with shower, plenty of closet space. The best part of our stay was sitting out back in the evening, talking, entertaining friends, and Christopher’s favorite, fishing from the dock! All catch and release but we had a ball. I highly recommend this cottage……just not when I want to go back.

Incredible cottage! This is the perfect location with great views. We had a terrific time during our stay and C108 made it even better. We enjoyed coming back from a day at the beach and using the water access at the dock. Can’t wait to go back! Thank you!!!
