I'm semi-retired, back home in Bermuda after many years living abroad and travelling widely. Freshwinds was built by my father. The apt. was added by my husband and I so that we could spend more time vacationing with our family!

My husband and I enjoy an 'armchair' business running cruises aboard our catamaran 'Ana Luna'. I'll take you snorkeling at our favorite spot!

Debbie purchased this apartment in 1963

Wonderful Stay!

  • 4 of 5
A spacious, clean and lovely guest house 10 minutes away from Hamilton. The best description for this guest house would be, a home away from home. The house was supplied with essentials such as bath towels, beach towels, hand soap, bar soap, dishwashing soap, coffee maker, microwave, pots, pans, cups and utensils. The owners Nathan & Debbie were great, they were very helpful and hospitable. They referred us to Cal, who runs a taxi service on the island and she was absolutely amazing!!! If you are into nature,this place is for you.

Hot....Hot....Hot

We were a family of four (2 adults and twin 2 year old boys). Because of the boys our needs were not as straight-foward as many guests. Nathan and Debbie (our hosts)were excellent before and during our stay in answering our queries and doing what they could to make our arrival and stay as enjoyable as possible. We found Freshwinds perfect for our needs - homely and peaceful (well until our boys got there), with all the amenities you could wish for. It was very close to a child friendly beach, and had a bus stop for travel into Hamilton within 30 seconds walk. Bermuda is a wonderful, friendly island - but, rather expensive. Although travelling 7 hours from the UK with toddlers was possibly not our smartest move, they had a whale of a time. I would highly recommend Freshwinds as a place to stay in Bermuda...as a home from home.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5
Our family of five had a great stay at Freshwinds Apartments. Excellent location! Bus stop is steps from the door. Groceries an easy 5 minute walk. Beach and parks are a 5 minute walk as well. Admiralty Park is a perfect place for the kids to snorkel, swim, play in the sand and discover the colonial tunnels. The layout of the apartment is spacious, pics of the property are accurate. Taxi driver they recommended lives close by and goes above and beyond!

Happy in Paradise

I loved staying here! I would highly recommend it. The apartment was huge and had a friendly, comfortable feel.  The listed description was accurate and the photos reflect the appearance. The property was clean and well maintained and has a sweet private garden attached for a nice bbq dinner with friends! The property was safe and private in a quiet neighborhood. The bus service was good and I would recommend it for the great location. The gorgeous beaches, two public parks and amazing views off North Shore are all within walking distance. Groceries are easy to get at several nearby stores. The parks are great for the kids to play or bring a couple's picnic. Hamilton is easy to access by bus, motorbike rental or taxi. What really made my visit memorable was that the owner was helpful and made themselves readily available for answering questions. They were so kind and cared how my stay was going,  doing their utmost to provide a great place to stay in Bermuda and the best experience they could.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Freshwinds this February. The accommodations were spacious, clean and comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed. We loved sitting outside in the pretty garden and popping out to see if there were any herbs, ripe paw paw or bananas in the veggie patch, which the owners graciously invited us to use. The bus stop is right on the corner and a very short ride to Hamilton. Admiralty park with lovely cove, beach and caves was a treasure and only a two minute walk away. Looking forward to coming back again next next year!

Not what I expected

  • 1 of 5
Booked a week at this guest house for my annual business trip to Bermuda. Checked in on Sunday, February 23. They don't post a specific address on the vacation rental sites but do say they are close to Hamilton. They aren't - they are in Spanish Point. The owners are nice but not on site, so when I ran into multiple problems, I was trying to work with them via email.

First, house is very musty, mildewed and moldy smelling. The owners said that it was because they had a lot of exotic wood in the house and because the previous renter had kept all the doors and windows shut for security. They advised me to open all the doors & windows and sent the gal, who lives upstairs and I guess manages the house, down with a space heater.

The appliances and furnishings are very dated and used however, I believe the house was mostly clean. Came with wifi, but it only works on a limited basis in the back corner of the master bedroom.

Had major rain on Sunday and I awoke to being covered in biting ants. They covered the bed and all my clothing in the bathroom. Not just an ant here and there - hundreds of them.

Notified the owner who initially tried to blame me for eating in the bedroom and bathroom, but I assured him I only ate a sandwich in the den while watching the Olympics. He said they were God's cleaners and they wouldn't bother me if I didn't let them. However, they were biting me and I am still dealing with the infection from one of the bites.

Packed my clothes up in a trash bag to kill all the ants and took them to a laundry. Checked out and left behind $100 worth of groceries.

Luckily the owner only charged me for the 1 night.

I know ants are common during rain, but they covered my bed, me, my clothing and the bathroom walls and floor. In addition, they were biting ants and it was the last straw. Wouldn't recommend Freshwinds except possibly during the summer when rain is not an issue, you can keep windows and doors open and if you do not need easy access to Hamilton.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that Tammy had a poor experience, she had a lot of issues which we tried our best to address without success. She flew in from 7 time zones from the west into the rainiest spell in Bermudas history of February. Previously had already asked to shorten her stay by half as she had overlooked her child's band concert, father was coming and then not, total of 34 emails answering her questions etc.

Our previous tenant had a fine time with no issues at all. There are ants in Bermuda, they do not bite as many other species do. They do come into everywhere especially when their nests are flooded and are attracted to sweets, food, etc., we feel her claims are overly exaggerated as was her reaction. That said, we did let her seek other quarters and charged her only for the time stayed.

We prefer to be as organic as possible. Steps are taken to keep insects at bay indoors but let them live their essential lives outdoors. We love the tree frogs which sing all night in warm months and we won't kill them for anyone! They sometimes require earplugs for some guests, we provide these if asked for.

Regarding the distance to Hamilton, we are close, a bit over a mile away, we walk it and ride our bikes often.

Again, we apologize to Tammy and hope she had a good trip to Bermuda in the end.

However we feel her claims are exaggerated as our house sitter did check the apartment after she left and found no evidence to support her claims. We do have images of how she left the apartment, not the way my mother would have.

We do all we can to provide a great place to stay in Bermuda, however some guests are harder to please than others. Perhaps at times it is in their hearts and minds to find bliss or torment in a wide variety of situations. Same goes for all of us..
