The property is located a short 2 min walk from the historic town of St. Georges, with a fantastic choice of restaurants, bars, and shopping. There are several restaurants a short walk from the property, so you will have plenty of great eateries to choose from!
There is the supermarket in the village as well as a convenience store, which means that supplies are never far away. After a day of sightseeing in St. George, groceries can be picked up on your way “home” from Somers Market. We suggest bringing frozen steaks or fish and some liquor/wine/beer with you as you are allowed to import some for your own use. It saves time and ensures you have those steaks cut just the way you like them.
There are two bus stops near the property, which are a two minute walk, and a 10 minute walk. The ferry stop is about a 5 minute walk away- if that. There are also buses leaving from the nearby town centre regularly heading over to the west part of the island, including the capital city of Hamilton.
A shuttle service operates in St. Georges, but it’s a pretty walk into town and won’t take long unless you stop to admire all the flowers and the charming gardens on your way. Bus/ferry passes are obtained by stopping off at the post office on your way to the cottage or stepping into the local post office.
Snorkelling and swimming at nearby beaches including some dazzling, rarely visited ones. Tobacco Bay is a half mile away, which is a great beach for snorkelling in the calm waters. St. Catherine’s Beach and Blackbeard’s Beach are both a 15 minute walk from the property, and Clearwater Beach and St. David’s Beach are a 20 minute drive, in St. David’s. Clearwater beach and the old NASA Station in a new 77 acre park called Cooper’s Island- a collection of sparkling sand beaches and endless horizons, turtles, groves of native trees and flowers- just spell binding…
The former capital of Bermuda, the Town of St. Georges is just a 2 minute walk away, but will take you back nearly 400 years to 1612. Sites to see, all within walking distance of the property, include: St. Peters Church, The Stella Maris Catholic Church, St. Georges Town Square, The Unfinished Church, Fort St. Catherines, Deliverance Ship Replica, Somers Gardens, and St. David’s Lighthouse.
The Mid-Ocean Golf Course and Tuckers Point Resort are less than 15 minutes away by taxi or by bus, and there is Ocean View in Devonshire and the Princess, Belmont and Riddells Bay courses as well as Port Royal as you proceed west along the island. See website bermuda-accommodations.com for information about arranging tee times etc.
RATE INCLUDES reasonable electricity and water consumption, understanding always that these are precious and scarce utilities and that everyone in Bermuda conserves assiduously by turning lights and ac off when you go out and never letting taps run on. Locking up is the same prudent exercise in Bermuda as it is when you leave your own home; close the windows and leave the unit secure please. Included are local telephone calls but ALL long distance calls will require a calling card or you would be best advised to set up a SKYPE account before you go. Check with your cell phone provider to see if your phone will operate overseas and arrange a good plan before you go so as to avoid hefty charges. It is customary to leave a gratuity for the maid who will come to clean after you leave. A boat rental or charter will permit you to explore the wonderful collection of islands, bird sanctuaries, old forts and spectacular beaches that are situated in the Castle Harbour area. You can drift down the coast and admire the palaces of Tuckers Town where the elite from around the world have built their luxurious hideaways. With a picnic and a case of cool drinks, this could be the most relaxed day of your vacation.

Bermuda’s most significant nature reserve is Cooper’s Island, located in the East end of the island near the old town of St.Georges. Accessible only on foot (no pets, no cars or mopeds) the park requires that you bring your lunch, your camera and a generous part of your morning or afternoon so you can ramble through the astonishingly beautiful rocky outcrops to the sumptuous untouched beaches nestled in between the headlands. Your swim suit and a towel is all you will need as you sample beach after beach. Sturdy shoes to cross the rocks and your camera will be essential to record the breathtaking views down the south shore coastline, and over to St. Davids Island, as well as the towering cloud formations and the intense range of colours in the ocean from turkoise to indigo. The park has been restored to its natural aesthetic beauty and authentic ecology as a critical wildlife habitat, thanks to a collaboration between HSBC Bermuda, the Ministry of Environment and Sports, the Department of Conservation Services, the Department of Parks and HSBC Bermuda staff volunteers.
The 77 acre (32.2 hectare) Cooper’s Island is home to a large number of nesting White-tailed Tropic birds (Longtails). Approximately 600 nesting pairs have been observed on the site. More importantly the site bridges the Cahow nesting islands that ring Castle Harbour. The park contains the only beach where the Loggerhead turtle has successfully hatched eggs in Bermuda in the 20th century. In is hoped that the critically endangered Bermuda Skink, a ground lizard that lives in Cahow nest burrows, eating insects and parasites and helping to keep the burrows clean can be reintroduced to Cooper’s Island in the near future…
Heavy restoration work has been ongoing since Nov. 2009 over the two large peninsulas containing the remnants of the former NASA Base, Old buildings, large areas of concrete and cabling etc. are still being removed but superb progress has been made. There is a massive reforestation project currently underway (2010).
HSBC Bermuda funded the demolition and removal of all unwanted structures, underground utilities, and asphalt roads. As part of the Bank’s Community Action Day Programme, Bank staff volunteers removed invasive vegetation and have helped replant endemic flora. The Community Action Day Programme gives Bank staff a half a day off from work each calendar year to volunteer their time for one of three preselected projects. The programme is designed to encourage Bank staff to give back to the community as many staff want to volunteer but don’t always have opportunity in their personal time.The Cooper’s Island project is a long-term commitment and volunteers will continue their efforts during the coming months and years. Bank staff volunteers range in ages from 20 to ’60-something’ and the Bank is looking at the possibility of including an educational youth component — for middle to senior school students.
As for the future of Cooper’s Island, Dr. David Wingate, the former Bermuda Conservation Officer who directed the successful restoration of Nonsuch Island, told The Royal Gazette: “I’ve said all along that making Cooper’s Island into a national park and nature reserve is potentially the greatest payback in terms of nature conservation of any land in Bermuda. It’s my hope that it could become a nature reserve of international significance.”
