We stayed here for just over a week last year & thoroughly loved the place. Our host Christine was really great & had a vast knowledge of the island with lots of handy tips to make our stay that much more enjoyable. We stayed in 2 different studios both of which have a fully equipped kitchen so ideal for making your own meals to save a little money. (Bermuda is not cheap!) Also very comfortable beds, great views of the harbour, free cable TV & internet access. There is a small local supermarket nearby which is adequate for most needs which Christine happily takes you to & from on your arrival to help you get settled in. The location is ideally placed next to the ferry stop with regular ferries to the Dockyard & over to the capital Hamilton. The bus stop is literally metres away with the numbers 7 & 8 bus approx every 10-15 mins. Number 7 bus takes you to the popular South Shore beaches but there are also smaller local bays & beaches to explore nearby. This is a quieter part of the island & slightly away from the main tourist spots but it does still provide you with easy access to everything. Word of warning the buses do get very crowded at peak times, especially when the cruise liners are in dock but it's all part of the experience. Recommend trying the Sunday Brunch at Seahorse Grill & sushi at Salt Rock Grill or during the happy hour at The Harbourfront. Lunch specials at The Lobster Pot are great value. All in all we had a brilliant time there & would definitely return.
