Somebody on this forum stayed there a few years ago but I can't find the reference. Maybe they will see your post and answer it. In the meantime what kind of information do you want? Are you familiar with Bermuda? You can pretty well rely on the accuracy of the description and photos.

The closest motor scooter rental livery location to that Bailey's Bay neighborhood will be the WHEELS CYCLES-- web.me.com/dpanchau/Wheels_Rentals/Home.html --location on Blue Hole Hill (within walking distance...at: Grotto Bay Beach Hotel..next to Shell gas station). Wheels Cycles is certainly a reliable scooter rental operation.

We've been huge fans of the OLEANDER CYCLES-- http://www.oleandercycles.bm/ --for decades and ALWAYS been VERY SATISFIED with their equipment, service and pricing, with rental/service locations all over Bermuda....but there is no Oleander rental location in immediate Bailey's Bay/north shore neighborhood. Oleander will pick-up and deliver scooters to any location in Bermuda.

The only reason why I mention this is that a few years ago, we stayed at Grotto Bay Beach Hotel and rented scooters from the Wheels location there (entrance just below the Shell gas station on Blue Hole Hill...just after coming off of the Causeway from the airport). The scooters (Peugeots) were low-mileage and in excellent condition but...we found that their power delivery, while perfectly '..adequate..'....was a bit '..aenemic..' going up grades (none in our party of several riders were overweight or 'heavy').

The only other thing that annoys me about Wheels (and several other scooter rental liveries) is that they apply a $10 Fuel Surcharge if you return a scooter at the end of the rental with less than a full tank of gas. Oleander does NOT make this charge. This may seem a petty peeve...but a peeve nonetheless.

I'm not familiar with C27...but the location description is about right. It will be situated just off of the North Shore Road with a section of the Bermuda Railway Trail runing across the front lawn. There is no '..beach..' in the immediate area...but there are little spots (more at low tide) along this stretch of shoreline where you can slip into the water to swim. The nearest beaches will be either SHELLY BAY on the north shore or JOHN SMITH BAY across on the south shore. The nearest supermarket will be the SHELLY BAY MARKETPLACE. a couple of minutes west ( mile or so) by scooter, along the North Shore Road (at: Radnor Rd.). There is also a BLEVIN'S VARIETY (used to be: '..Tony's..') mini-mart/convenience store a minute or so (1/2 mile) to the east along the North Shore Road. The original SWIZZLE INN will be approx. 3/4 mile to the east.

For what its worth....a few years ago we stayed at Grotto Bay Beach Hotel...the scooter ride from that Bailey's Bay neighborhood...around Harrington Sound...through a couple of manicured, palm-lined, golf courses in Tucker's Town to the south shore...then along the South Road to the south shore beaches between Warwick Long Bay and Horseshoe Bay took 25-30 very pleasant minutes.
