E02. One Bedroom Apartment in St. George's
- SQM 1
Rate (2018): $175US per night for 3 guests.
Our conveniently located apartment is in a handsome house with stairs near the beautiful AME Church. With sleeping arrangements for up to three guests, the accommodations are on two floors.
The compact galley kitchen includes a fridge, stove, oven and coffee maker which means making meals at home is easy. With a full bath (with shower) and a cute bedroom with double bed plus a roll out sofa for 1 additional guest in the living room, your family should be very comfortable. The little stone patio will be lovely in the evenings for meals. St. George's Town is a World Heritage Site.
The property is located a short 5 min walk from the historic town of St. George's, with a fantastic choice of restaurants, bars, and shopping. T
There is the Supermart in town, a convenience store called "Ample Hamper" and a pharmacy nearby, which is about a 5 minute walk from the property. After a day of sightseeing in St. George's, 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 isn’t far either, about a 5 minute walk from the cottage! 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 as well out to St. David’s and into St. George's, but it’s a pretty walk into town and won’t take long. 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.
Tobacco Bay is a 10 minute walk from the cottage, 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.
Sites to see, all within walking distance of the property, include: St. Peter's Church, St. George's Town Square, The Unfinished Church, Fort St. Catherine's, Deliverance Ship Replica, Somers Gardens, and St. David’s Lighthouse.
Buses run into Hamilton and beyond to the fabled south shore coastal beaches, Somerset and Dockyard, and there is a ferry service into Hamilton as well. As the island is only 22 miles long, even at the sedate pace of 14 to 20 miles an hour, you can explore the entire island comfortably from your taxi, on the mopeds or by public transportation. These services include excellent bus and ferry service into Hamilton.
The Mid Ocean Golf Course and Tucker's 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.

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 A/C 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 long distance calls will require a calling card. 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.
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 Tucker's 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.
