My husband and I stayed at Wendell and Xinia's home for our 10th visit to Bermuda. They were wonderful in picking us up from the airport and stopping at a gas station store for some quick supplies before arriving at their home. The studio was great with all the components needed for a 6 day stay but the room is really on South Rd and it is a short walk around to the front to get a view of the Bermuda water. There is no view from the room at all. While that was the only draw back it really was a surprise as to where the rental room is situated on the property and the lack of view from the room. There is also a large satellite dish almost directly in front of the door so this was not the most scenic spot to sit even though there are chairs. While this was not a deal breaker it is surprising no one has mentioned the lack of a view from the room. The blue and green waters of Bermuda keep us coming back and we like to view them as much as we can, to look outside the window and see South Rd was not my vision of Bermuda I was hoping for.
We enjoyed having cheese and crackers and drinks at the cool tub out front each afternoon and the view from there is magnificent. We saw the full moon from here and even a couple shooting stars. We used the private beach several days and there were usually only 3-5 people each time. The water was perfect the warmest it has ever been but we always come in the spring. I think from now on we'll be coming in September.
We rented a motor boat from Grotto Bay Blue Hole Watersports and had a wonderful day. If you like boating that is a great area with lots of islands to explore.
We like to stay at small quaint apartments and inns and this was great and Wendell and Xinia were perfect hosts. Wendell's mom even drove us to the airport the day of departure.
