If you are lucky enough to find an opening for a stay here, grab it. It's worth planning your vacation around Gobbler's Corner, the best value in Bermuda. We rented Brian and Susan's place for a week. What fun! The apartment has every amenity -- wi-fi, full kitchen, large bathroom with walk-in shower, even a washer and dryer (so don't overpack -- you can keep your clothes clean). There's a gas grill out back. Two blocks away is a grocery store and a liquor store. (The Oatleys stock many basics -- laundry detergent, condiments, tea, coffee filters, etc, so you don't have to buy these.) We cooked breakfast every morning in the apartment's kitchen, and split our dinners between restaurants and grilling steaks, burgers, etc. out back. Best snorkeling (Tobacco Bay, a sheltered area with many varieties of fish) is a 10-minute walk (and it has a full concession -- gear rental, food, drinks,etc.) Bus is 4 blocks away, and it'll carry you all over the island (best value is the discounted 15-trip coupons good for bus and ferry). Ferry is 3 blocks away for quick access to Royal Naval Dockyard and City of Hamilton. Scooter rental is 2 blocks away. Waterfront dining is 3 blocks away. Bermuda Perfumery is a block away. We saw Bermuda by foot, bus, ferry and scooter. Among the sites we took in: Crystal Cave and Fantasy Cave, botanical gardens, aquarium, zoo, Museum of Bermuda Art, Tucker's Point area, pink-sand Elbow Beach, Dockyard, Hamilton (dinner at the Lobster Pot), high tea at the Perfumery, snorkeling, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute -- all in a week. Plus, on one of our days, we saw all of St. George's and St. David's islands by boat, courtesy of Brian, who is a multi-generation Bermudian, loves the island, and enthusiastically shares his knowledge of it. We highly recommend Gobbler's Corner. One footnote about Bermuda: expect to pay about double for everything from groceries to restaurants, but consider that tax is already included so there are no add-ons. (U.S. Dollars are exchanged on par with Bermudian dollars and accepted everywhere. Credit cards accepted almost everywhere -- excluding a nearby Chinese takeout but it was worth paying cash for.)

Very cute little efficiency apartment. It's within walking distance of all the touristie sites of St. George, as well as restaurants and the grocery store. The public transportation system is very easy to use and takes you anywhere you want to go. It's also within walking distance of the apartment. Brian is a wonderful host. He personally provided us transportation to and from the airport. He is very knowledgeable about the Island and took us out on his boat.

This apartment was just what we needed for our stay in Bermuda. A short ride from the airport, and easy walk to get to beach and other places of interest in St George. Bus pick-up was also close and easy for travel outside of St George.
Brian,owner of apartment, was so helpful with suggestions of what to see, and history of island.
Was much more comfortable in this quiet area than we would have been in busy Hamilton.

“Gobbler's Corner is a charming, comfortable and clean accommodation in St George's, Bermuda.”

Gobbler's Corner was a perfect place to stay during our 8 night stay in Bermuda. St. George's is such a charming, cute town with its old homes, historic church, many restaurants, shops and beautiful flowering park. The harbor is a few minutes walk where you can pick up a ferry to Hamilton and the Royal Dockyard. We loved the fact that we had our own apartment with a complete, outfitted kitchen. The bathroom is huge and is newly renovated We got a great night sleep on the comfortable queen sized bed and were lulled to sleep by the peeping tree frogs. The place is spotlessly clean. A beautiful 10 minute walk will take you to the greatest spot called Tobacco Bay...a little jewel of a beach where you can swim and/or snorkle in turquoise, clear waters. Close to Gobbler's Hill is Blackbeard's Hideaway (a restaurant/bar that is part of a time-share open to the public).where you can enjoy a cold drink and watch the sunset on the Atlantic. We returned home very relaxed and satisfied with our stay.

“Fantastic apartment, perfect location, great hosts!”

We loved our stay at Gobbler's Corner! The apartment is spotless, and the plentiful amenities that are included are excellent. Having a washer and dryer was a true bonus, and the refrigerator and stove allowed us to "cook in" after a busy day at the beach. The bed is comfortable, and lots of linens and towels are provided. We loved the beautiful white bathroom, with it's walk-in glass shower.

Brian and Susan even provided the little things, like tea bags, coffee, detergent, paper towels, trash bags, and dish soap - so we didn't have to buy the "staples" that we would have needed during our stay. This was generous of them, and so convenient for us. There were lots of books on the bookshelves - some giving background and travel information about Bermuda, and some for our relaxation reading. There were even some board games for rainy days - but we never had one rainy spot in our 12 days in Bermuda!

Brian and Susan Oatley were great hosts. Susan greeted us on our arrival, showed us around the apartment, and explained the appliances. Brian stopped by to chat and make sure we had everything we needed. He even took us out on his boat on our last evening in Bermuda, giving us a water-view of the island and offering wonderful comments about its history and natural attributes - and it's celebrity home-owners.

The location of the apartment is perfect, just a 5 minute walk to the center of St. George, the historic town at the east end of Bermuda. We walked to the amazing Tobacco Beach, where we snorkeled, ate at the snack bar, and relaxed in the sun on the beach. We were also able to walk to the ferry dock and the local bus stop to go to other parts of the island - the local transportation system is excellent.

If you're looking for a place to call home in Bermuda - a place that is comfortable, convenient, and reasonably priced - then Gobbler's Corner is the perfect rental for you!
