This upper unit at Forecaster's Cottage has fantastic views and large living space.
Leave all your worries behind and come and enjoy wonderful apartment in paradise nestled on a hillside overlooking St. George's Harbour and the historical town of St. George (now a world heritage site).
The 1000 sq ft residence boasts many desirous features including a spacious bedroom and uncanny harbour views. Sleeps up to 5 guests, bedroom has a queen size bed, living room has a queen pull out sofa bed with extra mattress for extra comfort. TV in living room with DVD player. I-Pod alarm clocks provided.
Kitchen comes fully stocked with condiments, teas and coffee's.
Free WiFi available.
Outdoor patio has a gorgeous view of the harbour and the town of St. Georges. Sit back and enjoy the boats going by or even watch the ships in the harbour. This outdoor space is perfect for entertainment or a quiet night of lounging to enjoy the magical sunset or even the sunrise.
Walking distance to the town of St. George, this apartment is in a great location and perfect for the active lifestyle enthusiast or those who want to enjoy quiet serenity. St. George's offers plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. The apartment is on the main bus route and only a few blocks away from the ferry stop.
This is an excellent property. The location can't be beat if you want to stay near St. George’s. It is a very easy walk to the center of town, yet tucked quietly away. Groceries, great restaurants, and a pleasant, low-traffic evening walk are steps away. This made it a much better choice, we think, than an isolated resort or too close to hectic Hamilton. A multi-day bus/ferry pass, which you can purchase at the St. George's Post Office, gets you anywhere if you take the time to enjoy the ride. Service to St. George's is as often as every 15 minutes.
The house itself is in great shape, with three spacious bedrooms and two baths, with plenty of privacy for families. The kitchen is roomy, modern and well-equipped, with a small breakfast bar and a separate formal dining room seating eight. There are separate TVs upstairs and down, and even a pool table. The house is up some steps, and so it has great views of the harbor while not being too close to neighbors.
It is hard to say anything bad about the house. If you can't handle stairs, it is probably not for you, but we did not find the climb difficult. Humidity was a problem, but that's true everywhere on the island, and we didn't run any of the air conditioners (in almost every room). We mainly ate out for lunch to moderate the high cost of food, hitting the specials at Wahoo’s Grille and the CV Cafe, while eating in for breakfast and dinner, or using the nearby Chinese take-out. Somer’s Market is open early and even open Sundays.
We have had good and bad vacation rentals; this place rates right at the top.
We enjoyed our stay very much! The apartment was lovely, clean and spacious with an excellent view. Faith and Neil were terrific responding quickly to any questions we had.
We reserved the home for ten days for myself and my husband and our 14 year old son. The setup of the home with the sleeping areas separated was such that we could be together as a family but could also feel that we had our own private space. Our son used the pull out couch in the large air conditioned living room and loved that he had the big flat screen in his room lol.
We loved the breeze and the exquisite view from the patio and my personal favorite space was the window seat in the dining room...just needed a few more pillows as a back rest to be the perfect reading spot. But that was a problem easily solved! We played some of the games provided at the big dining room table and even had our family over for snacks and to watch a movie. They live in Bermuda and were impressed with our view!
The house is within walking distance to town and was about 5 mins from our family. Several good restaurants close by: Art Mels (great fries, huge fish sandwich and not so expensive), Chinese takeout, Tavern by the Sea (great pizza and salad). The airport, Fort St Catherine and a beach are close by and plenty of places to catch the buses that run constantly. Can't ask for a better location.
Faith is excellent to work with and has really set this home up with everything that you might need: wifi, a prepaid cell, plus beach items, towels, snorkel gear, umbrella...located just a few steps down the inside stairs to the fully equipped modern laundry area. Also, an abundance of dishes, pots, pans etc that you need if you desire to have or cook meals at home. Loved the gas stove and convection oven and my husband made great use of the Tassimo coffee maker each morning. Coffee and teas provided!
The pictures are accurate and show the house as comfortable, but I think the home is more up to date and modern feeling than the pics convey...especially the bathroom. The tile and cabinets are beautiful!
The king size bed in the large bedroom was extremely comfortable and we slept just as good as in our bed at home. Extra large closet and great air conditioning in this space. A small TV would be nice for laying in bed, but we just used our Ipad since the home has wifi.
I love to be on vacation and yet feel as comfortable and relaxed as if I were in my on home and this place fit that desire perfectly! We would definitely stay here again when we come to visit. We have already recommended the house for our friends. Thanks Faith for a wonderful home!!
This apartment is a total gem. It is spacious, well maintained, beautifully furnished and the view from the porch cannot be beat. Thank you for the supply of coffee/tea and the wine - you guys have thought of everything for the perfect relaxing getaway!
We were a family of four vacationing in St. George. Forecasters cottage was a great location, walking distance from town and Tobacco Bay, with a beautiful view of the harbour. Faith and Neil were incredibly nice hosts, getting our daughter a bike that would be the right size for her, and generally making us welcome. The house itself is airy and has an extremely well equipped kitchen. We used the air conditioning only at night. Overall, I would recommend it highly.
Our family stayed in this roomy apt (upper level) in St. Georges & had great water views, amenities (we are now getting a new coffeemaker like theirs) & walking distance to town (was a 25 minute walk to Tobacco Bay & St. Catherine's beaches & a lot uphill) - grocery, liquor, pizza (Whitehorse) & restaurants within a 10 minute walk (our fave St. George eatery was Wahoo's) - there is a fold out couch & cot & complete furnished kitchen (told ya it was roomy)... We kept one taxi driver for the week & really liked his clean, spacious van & his polite & friendly demeanor, so recommending him as well for Bermuda, left several of his cards at the house... Our fave Bermuda activities: Crystal Caves (do both), boating/snorkeling w/ Dreamcatcher Boat Rental, the Zoo & golfing at Tucker's Point (all of our taxi rides were between $60-$80 roundtrip)... We (family of 5 w/ 3 daughters) loved this rental & found it to be peaceful & well stocked (dvds w/great tv, a gas grill & VIEWS) - Owners were helpful, too... Thanks Bermuda for a lovely time!!!
