What a great way to stay in Bermuda. My wife and I have enjoyed Bermuda for 5 years from different hotel perspectives...all wonderful. Because our daughter is getting married this year we decided to be more budget conscious. Minzah Jamil (beautiful view) was a great choice. The townhouse setup provided a very clean, spacious, homey environment with all the amenities for cooking, washing and relaxing in, or outdoors. Barbecue grill and umbrella table included.
The location is embedded in a cozy, classic Bermudian hilltop neighborhood, with water views and sunsets that take your breath away. My wife and I are comfortable with traveling the island on scooters. The rental facility is conveniently located at the bottom of the hill and our hosts kindly gave us a ride down upon our arrival, so we did not waste anytime getting over to Horseshoe Bay later the first afternoon. Unless your extremely athletic and don't mind climbing steep hills, we highly recommend a scooter.
One of many positives was location and proximity to South Road Beaches, Church Bay for snorkeling, The Reefs and Fairmont Southampton hotels and Henry the VIII restaurant for evening dining and entertainment. All reachable within minutes by scooter in evening wear without the need of a taxi, unless you plan on drinking. However, taxis are readily available from this location if necessary. We found the location convenient for venturing into Hamilton or going in the opposite direction to Dockyard. Those choosing to visit St. George should use the ferry system from Dockyard.
Having a full size refrigerator found us at the supermarket more than we anticipated, however because it was located minutes away on Middle Road, the convenience was welcomed. We did cook a couple of our dinner meals, make sandwiches for the beach and have breakfast before starting the day.
The real reason we love Bermuda and go back every year is because of the warmth and friendliness of the Bermudian people. Half our time spent on the island is revisiting friends we've met. Our hosts radiated this same Bermudian quality—they treated us with lots of kindness. Their recommended taxi driver was charming and hosted us for an evening at the John Lennon Peace Concert. We've created wonderful new friends, and a Bermudaful home we will revisit again!
