On a private street just off Scaur Hill and overlooking boats gently bobbing at their moorings is a sprawling family estate. On the waterfront is a handsome home containing a separate apartment that suits up to 4 guests. This property’s home owner owns a cab and prefers to pick up their guests for a small extra charge.

Queen bed in lower bedroom, and 2 single trundle beds in the small second bedroom which make up into a King unit. Air-conditioned throughout. The master bedroom is downstairs with private bath and access is gained by the spiral staircase as shown in the photos. The small bedroom which is situated on the upper level has two single beds (trundle) with a private bathroom.

The 2 bathrooms have a shower and tub ensemble in one, and a shower in the other along with the usual amenities of toilet and sink. A hair dryer is provided.

The kitchen has a full sized fridge/freezer, full sized stove, table and four chairs, coffee maker, microwave and iron and ironing board, as well as laundry facility, offered with the proviso that water is used VERY frugally. Water is a precious and costly resource in Bermuda. Cutlery, dishes and glassware as well as linens for 4 are provided. There is an eat-in area for dining and a comfortable living room to relax in. The kitchen, dining area and living room are also on the upper level.
For your swimming and beaching needs, there are beach towels and beach chairs in the apartment.

This unit has access to wireless internet for guests who bring their own laptop.

Please note: this property is tiered into a hillside down to the water- there are several flights of stairs. In order to gain access to the apartment, there are steps as the apartment is located on the waterfront. In addition, inside the apartment there is a spiral stairwell with approximate 8-10 steps to gain entrance to the lower bedroom. Perhaps this apartment is less than ideal for guests who may have medical challenges.

Cable TV- 2 sets. Property has a barbecue and outdoor table and chairs for casual dining. Local calls are free but long distance can only be accessed by calling card.

Lots of closet space will provide you with storage for all your beautiful Bermuda acquisitions and luggage. Be sure to go and see the shopping concourses at Naval Dockyard as well as Hamilton where luxury goods, books and crafts and arts, fine dining and so on can be enjoyed, not ten minutes from the house. The bus stop is a simple level walk not 2 minutes away from the cottage. The bus system will take you into town in 20 minutes, or over to the ferry for the lovely water trip into Hamilton in about the same time frame. And you can swim right from the dock at this pretty waterfront location.

The MarketPlace Supermarket and Arnolds Markets in the West end are only a bus ride away for purchasing groceries.

If you rent a boat, you can tour Cathedral Rocks out at the point and all the charming little islands in the area. You can hop on the bus or walk up Somerset Road to Callaghan Bay or on to Somerset Long Bay. The grand beaches at Horseshoe, Warwick Long Bay and Elbow are a short bus or moped ride away and some are serviced public beaches with cafes, beach chair and umbrella rentals available. There is a scuba diving-bike rental operation about a half-mile away near Somerset Bridge. The Railway Trail is very close by for biking and exercising. For ferries, you can reach Cavello Bay Wharf or Rockaway Wharf by bus, or 15 minute walk. The local Supermarket is 1 mile away: spirits are sold until 9pm, and groceries can be purchased there until midnight. “Traditions Café” or the “Country Squire Restaurant” is 5 minutes away, and the “Frog and Onion Pub” and the “Freeport Restaurant” is 10 minutes away at Dockyard.

spectacular views

We loved our recent stay at W04. The property offers spectacular water views - from a semi-panoramic balcony in the living room and multi-level terraces accessible to guests. We particularly enjoyed direct water access for swimming from the deck (on the property) or a tiny little sandy area accessible at low tides (much appreciated by my 6 yr old daughter who called it "our mini beach"). In fact we could easily swim across the harbor and snorkel around the islands that are part of a national nature reserve. Sunset views are simply amazing. The property itself is very well equipped and provides full privacy to the guests. The bedroom upstairs is rather small - may work best for kids. The bedroom downstairs is great size (no door though - just stairs down from the living room). There are quite a few steps all over the property, which is on a hill, so it may not work for people with disabilities. Bus stop is less than 5 minutes walk away. The hosts are extremely kind and nice people!

Thinking of you fondly as we remember one year ago on this date we arrived to the beautiful island of Bermuda and stayed in your wonderful guest apartment. Wish we were there right now! We often look at our Bermuda pictures including the fantastic view from the dock and balcony on your property. We hope you are doing well and we look forward to our next visit to Bermuda.

Loved it

I have only praise for the professional and friendly service that was provided to ensure that we had a wonderful stress-free holiday at the W04 property. The information package that you provided was tremendously helpful and provided us with everything we needed to know from the moment we landed. And, of course, this is why we are back booking another holiday in Bermuda for next year. Thank you! The home owners were very gracious hosts during our stay at their apartment and we had a wonderful holiday. The home owner provided taxi service to and from the airport, as well as giving us some history of the various places that we passed on our way to and from the property. The apartment was terrific and probably one of the best views looking over Ely’s Harbour. We spent every morning and evening on the balcony enjoying the view. And my granddaughter enjoyed swimming and snorkelling from the dock at the waterfront. With a western exposure, we did find that it was pretty hot outside on the property at that time of year. However, it certainly made for wonderful sunsets and photographs!
