A lovely stay, and absolutely as described

Our stay at Summerside was very pleasant and met our expectations. The view from the patio (and from the bed!) is beautiful...the turquoise water, craggy islands, the nighttime blinking of the buoys and the lighthouse in the distance...so relaxing and atmospheric. The bed and room is comfortable, bright, and clean. The small kitchen suited our needs just fine. Scott and Sarah were friendly hosts and were available for recommendations and help of any kind. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and full of stately homes and most of the walk into Hamilton is attractive and easy. The only downside to the property (and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) is that it is a bit of a walk into Hamilton...comfortably 25 minutes. If the weather is lovely and you're not in a big rush, it's a perfectly pleasant walk. Again, most of the walk is down quiet, attractive streets, but some parts can get hairy as you get closer to town and the traffic picks up and the roads narrow. However, finding a taxi is easy, and the taxi drivers are polite and friendly and don't try to fleece you. But, expect to pay $10-15 for a ride to or from points in downtown Hamilton. However, overall, Summerside was an excellent base from which to explore Bermuda, and one we were always happy to come back to at the end of the day. We definitely recommend it. Thanks, Scott!
