A combination of family home and world-class resort, Bermuda Bay is our oceanview house on exclusive, private Cinnamon Beach. It has an elevator, pool, 3 master suites, an office with sleeper bed, a gourmet kitchen, and all the amenities of Cinnamon Beach.<br/><br/>From the moment you see our 3-storey Mediterranean-style home, you'll know you've “Arrived” . . and in such style! Everything is fresh, new, and absolutely top-drawer, from the gorgeous pool and surrounding area (fenced in and beautifully landscaped) to the second- and third-storey balconies with their splendid views. Ride the elevator to the top of the house and then make your way down, glorious new surprises greeting you every step of the way!<br/><br/>The 3rd floor is the main living area of Bermuda Bay, containing the formal living room, kitchen, dining room, and one of the master suites. Where to begin?! Perhaps a quick pop out to the balcony, covered for shade and smoothly tiled, with comfy chairs overlooking both the pond in one direction and the ocean in another. This means sunrise views at dawn, sunset spectaculars during cocktail hour! And just in case you can’t bring yourself to leave this fabulous area, there’s a Weber gas grill waiting to help you prepare the catch of the day, steaks and burgers, and s’mores for the kids!<br/><br/>Once you step into the living room, you’ll wonder why you waited – because with long windows on several walls, the views just come indoors with you! In this room you’ll sink into ultra-soothing couches and chairs, just perfect for your favorite movie or the big game on the HDTV. The rest of the year, the silent ceiling fan circulates the perfectly cooled air. Heaven!<br/><br/>Adjacent to the living room is the dining area, set in a bright corner of the house with ocean views and sunlight streaming in from two directions. The kitchen is alongside this space, and one look will tell you that you’re not in Kansas anymore. A 42” built-in refrigerator stands ready to house your groceries and store the delicious restaurant take-homes, while an induction microwave, convection oven, and Wolf gas cooktop combine to make your home cooking into something worthy of the Food Network. <br/><br/>A half-bath is convenient to the living and dining area, so that no one need intrude upon the master suite. This is one of the showpieces of Bermuda Bay, boasting a king-sized bed, desk, HDTV, French doors to the balcony, and plenty of open space. The bath contains a jetted Jacuzzi tub you will find hard to part with when it’s time to go home, as well as a walk-in shower and dual vanities.<br/><br/>Travel to the 2nd floor and you find yourself on the mezzanine overlooking 1st-floor family room. Clerestory windows and breathtaking views surround you. This floor contains another master suite – this one with a kind-sized bed, HDTV, walk-in shower and tub – as well as a comfy den with a sofa that opens into a sleeper bed. And another terrace awaits you on this level, with views of both the ocean and the pond. Be sure to bring the binoculars – you’re certain to see water birds at Bermuda Bay! <br/><br/>Ride the elevator down to the first floor and settle into the family room, a huge and well-appointed space that includes a wet bar, a 50” HDTV with Blu-ray, and one entire wall of doors opening onto the pool area. It’s indoor/outdoor living at its very best! The pool is large enough for the whole gang to splash in making it irresistible!<br/><br/>The ground floor also features a master suite with a king-sized bed, HDTV, and en-suite bathroom, as well as a half-bath and a very useful laundry room. Walk right in from the 2-car garage, or use the formal entrance that takes you to the second level!<br/><br/>Cinnamon Beach is just steps away, family friendly and private. At Bermuda Bay, you also have access to all the amenities of the exclusive, gated Cinnamon Beach, including 2 pools, a fitness center, game rooms, a café, a kids’ water park, and jogging trails. Come experience the beach as never before.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bermuda Bay. The house was in excellent condition and was very clean upon our arrival. Our only complaint would be that the appliances did not always work very well. The oven often took thirty plus minutes to preheat and we could not get the microwave to pop popcorn. Overall though, this house was immaculate and we greatly appreciated the extra TV packages that included NFL Redzone and HBO. Thank you for an excellent stay! We would most certainly return if ever given the chance.
This is the 2nd year in a row I stayed at this location, 1 week last year , 2 weeks this year. House is very nice and location is excellent. Just a few minor issues this year. No hot water for 2 days, but Vacation Rentals did their best to rectify. Both propane tanks with grill were empty, but once Vacation Rentals notified, 2 tanks were delivered within 2 days. Other issue landscaping in back yard was really over grown this year. Landscapers did show up 12 days into my stay and cleaned up the yard nice. Only issue that has continued the last 2 years is no one ever shows up to clean the pool. The home owners might want to look into a new pool service if they are paying for this service. The pool bottom is covered in dirt and debris. For 2 weeks no one showed up to vacuum and pool was dirty upon arrival. Staying 2 weeks this year I thought someone would show up to vacuum the pool, but no one ever did. Other than a dirty pool, this rental is highly recommended. I also left a boogie board, football, volleyball, beach bag, and pool float for future rental users. I would rent this house again.
The house is absolutely beautiful! We like that everyone bedroom has an on-suite for privacy. The kitchen is great for cooking and still being able to enjoy each others company while doing so. The view on the top floor is lovely, being able to see the lake and pool in the back as well as the ocean from the side. I also like having the garages to park in at night. The pool was a little too cool for our liking but still nice to have. The elevator didn't work at first but then it began working shortly after we arrived. All in all a GREAT week - we will return!
The house was great. Make sure that the garage door remote opener is available. Even though we contacted the office, one was never made available to us. That was a pain, especially since the neighborhood has strict rules on keeping the garage doors closed.
The elevator had to be reset many times which caused issues with moving items.
