Just back from Bermuda -- hard to leave after an unbelievably wonderful week!
The reviews of the Penthouse are all true – beautiful place, spectacular views with sunrise and sunset from one end to the other. On it’s own, that would be enough to bring us here again. But what sets this apart was having Chris as our host, ambassador and in the end, a new friend in Bermuda.
After meeting us at the airport, Chris stopped at a local farm stand so we could stock up on fresh local vegetables and fruit. Next stop at the local market for whatever else we needed and then gave us the tour on the way in to get us oriented. He provided a cell phone to stay connected with him and from there every day was a new adventure…
Chris is a wonderful host and truly set the experience apart for us by showing us the island through his eyes. Chris took us paddle boarding with sea turtles and wrapped up the afternoon by paddling across the bay to buy wahoo fresh off of a friend's boat. Chris also introduced us to Keith and Gwen who took us sailing aboard “The Hat Trick” to go snorkeling on an outer reef. Keith is a true Bermuda historian and storyteller who kept us entertained en route to our destination -- a blue hole 4 miles offshore which was like snorkeling in an aquarium! Just breathtaking! A return trip is definitely in our plans!!
All in all a wonderful experience -- we highly recommend staying at Chris' place!
