About Chris and Donna

We are a husband and wife who were both involved in the hotel industry in Bermuda for over 20 years. We want you to be our guests and get to know the island we love so much.

Chris and Donna purchased this studio in 2011

Why Chris and Donna chose Bermuda

We bought Rock Sound in 2011 after looking at dozens of homes. As soon as we saw Rock Sound we fell in love with it as it is in a wonderful neighbourhood with amazing views and lots to do nearby. We believe as soon as you see it you will also fall in love.

What makes this studio unique

Rock Sound is literally across the road from the famous Reefs Hotel with its restaurants, bars, beach and spa. Within a mile is the Fairmont Southampton hotel with numerous restaurants, beach, bars, watersports, tennis and golf. But what really makes this a special place to stay is the proximity of beaches, restaurants, Gibbs Hill lighthouse and public transportation. You could not find a place to stay with all of this without paying hotel resort costs!

A little piece of Heaven for our 55th wedding anniversary

  • 5 of 5
It is hard to put into words how much we enjoyed 6 nights at this very comfortable apartment on the SouthShore of Bermuda with a view worth the price of admission. First and foremost tho the owners Donna & Chris are the sweetest people you could ever meet and met all of our needs in a heartbeat. They have 2 dogs that we met and they were great as well. Across the street "The Reefs" hotel was a great convience for some wonderful meals and very nice people that we got to meet as well. Buses are a short walk right down the lane to and from the city of Hamilton and the Dockyards. Of course we didn't expect to be greeted by hurricane Fay that came as a complete surprise to everyone on the Island, kept buses from running for a couple of days and we did lose power for a day (no big deal because it was cool enough to open the windows). Didn't keep us in or from enjoying the time we had. One last comment I must make..... Roslyn was our taxi driver and transported us to and from the airport and what a nice young woman she is. Made another new friend in Bermuda. We have been to Bermuda many times since 1980 and will surely go back to this place and hope to in a couple of years.

Lovely little home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Rock Sound for our honeymoon and it really was the perfect little home away from home!! Chris & Donna had a bottle of wine and some fruit waiting for us upon our arrival and were very helpful - we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Chris was even kind enough to offer to drive us to Henry's pub one night to grab a bottle of wine to go with our supper and when we checked out he personally came to see us off and to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The location is really good and is super close to the Reefs resort & the Fairmont Southampton (both of which have great dining options and live entertainment most nights plus there is golfing at the Fairmont and a spectacular spa and I did I mention you can walk there from Rock Sound!!!) and walking distance to many great little beaches!! There is a lot of beaches all along the South Shore Road that were really easy to get to and the best part was that all of them felt like we were literally on our own private beach (with the exception of Horseshoe Bay which is very popular with the tourists and we actually found that while it was pretty it was a bit too crowded for our liking). The bus was a really easy way to get around, and if public transit isn't for you - Oleander Cycles is right at the bottom of the hill/road from Rock Sound and you can rent a scooter from there - which we always felt 100% safe driving around on. We thought Rock Sound was really conveniently located and it was really easy to get around everywhere on the island, even though it's on the South side - it was only a 1/2 hour drive to St. George's and where we're from a 1/2 hour drive is pretty short to get from one side of the island to the other. Bermudians are hands down the most genuinely kind people we've ever encountered on our travels - everybody is just very kind and helpful and will always offer their assistance to you in any way, shape or form that they think they can help. One of our favorite parts about Rock Sound was the pool!!! We loved having our own "private" pool to go for a dip whenever we felt like it or to cool off and you can't beat the view from Rock Sound either! Gorgeous sunsets. A BIG thank you to Chris & Donna for helping us to make our honeymoon truly spectacular!!!

Great Location, Great Apartment, Great Hosts, Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I fell in love with the photo of the pool at this property in Bermuda. The apartment was lovely, well decorated and appointed. Chris and Donna were great hosts, offering to provide any items that were not already in the unit. They had thought of everything and we found ourselves enjoying morning coffee and late afternoon drinks on our private patio and of course enjoying the pool. The location was within walking distance of several wonderful restaurants and a bus ride away from many grocery stores. We traveled the island on bike, bus and ferry, enjoying the scenery, the sights and most of all the people. . My husband, the cyclist, would recommend that only experienced cyclists attempt to cycle the roads in Bermuda. He took his road bike from Canada and found that the rails to trails were only practical for mountain bikes. We would also recommend the use of the bus/ferry pass to all travelers. Be prepared, that the walk up the 300 foot driveway is very steep, at points in excess of a grade of 9%. From that location any walking you would want to do, such as the Lighthouse, is very hilly. We enjoyed that, but are a very fit couple. Thank you Donna and Chris for a wonderful vacation, a dream that was fifty years in the making!

BY FAR OUR FAVORITE TRIP TO BERMUDA!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from Bermuda and Rock Sound two weeks ago today and we can not wait to go back again! This was our fourth trip to Bermuda and definitely our favorite. We've celebrated our 25th, 28th, 31st and just recently our 33rd wedding anniversary in Bermuda. The apartment at Rock Sound was perfect! Donna and Chris could not have made us feel more comfortable. Very cozy and comfortable and had everything you would need. Views of the South Shore were beautiful. Having the bus stop just at the end of the driveway was perfect as we made use of the bus transportation all week. The Reefs resort is just across the street and we enjoyed a couple of evenings there. Also within walking distance was Henry the VIII for dining and entertainment. Church Bay beach was a short walk if you didn't want to hop on the bus to go to the other beaches. Very private and pretty beach. We even walked to Gibbs Lighthouse, climbed it, and then walked back to the apartment. We were there the week the hurricane Christobal was predicted to come nearby. Lucky we ended up having gorgeous weather after all. Rock Sound was perfect for us, Chris and Donna were great. Ready and willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible even offering to pick things up at the store during the week. Their arrangement of our taxi driver, Roslyn, (who by the way she was such a warm welcome to the island and pleasure to meet) was so convenient along with having our bus passes ready for us at the apartment. Not to mention the bottle of chilled wine, fresh bowl of fruit and their warm welcome as soon as we arrived. We can not wait to go back to Rock Sound. See you next June!

Excellent place to stay, excellent time in beautiful Bermuda!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful 35th anniversary trip to Bermuda! Donna and Chris' warm welcome and their Rock Sound studio apartment could not have been better! It was nice to return to a private, spacious and comfortable apartment each day and to have most breakfasts in and a few dinners at the BBQ and patio looking out over the ocean! We saw the sunrise a few days and the sunset almost every night! The large pool, wine, fruit, bus passes, grocery pick up and laundry were 'extras' that we really appreciated. We had a few hours visiting with Chris and Donna one evening and Donna drove us to our final night restaurant. THANK YOU!
We were able to easily walk, bus and ferry to many beaches for swimming and snorkelling. Church Bay was a short walk - beautiful spot and some beautiful fish! Horseshoe Bay, Tobacco Bay and Jobson's Cove were some other favourites.
We could also walk to The Reefs for two reasonably-priced breakfasts and two 'splurge' dinners at Coconuts. The Dining Room at Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, Henry VIIIs, The Southampton Princess and The Gulf Stream were all walkable or a short bus ride away.
We took the bus to The Dockyard area: The National Museum and Commissioner's House were really worth seeing, rum cakes, glass blowing, shopping, train ride, WILDCAT boat ride, Seguays, flyboards (bit closer to Sommerset) and more! Good food and drinks at The Pastry Shop, The Bone Fish Restaurant and The Frog and Onion (Dockyard beer!).
Bus to Hamilton: the Art Galleries in City Hall, some great shops and the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute. Great lunches right at the BUEI and at the Pickled Onion on Hamilton's main street.
We also visited St. George's by scooter (rented right near the apt.): quaint shops, a historical show in the square, The White Horse Pub, Fort St. Catherine, Clearwater Beach, Tobacco Bay and the amazing Turtle Bay beach!
The Aquarium and Zoo were also good - took the bus - close to Flatts.
SUCH a great time! We highly recommend Rock Sound and we would love to come back some day to stay...revisit our favourite spots and see even more!

30th wedding anniversary 2013

  • 5 of 5
Chris & Donna sorry for the delay to say the least. We had the most wonderful 2 week stay with you. We are planning to come and stay another 2 weeks. So here goes to all of you who are searching for the perfect place, you can look no further. We flew US air which had the best rates except for the extra charge for baggage. Of course Roslyn picked us up and we loved her. The best price for liquor is at the airport. We arrived to find a bowl of fruit and a bottle of wine which was very thoughtful. The apartment was perfect in every way. The people before us had bought the monthly bus pass which was left for us. Thank you that saved us over 100. clean and plenty enough room. I mean what more do you need than a beautiful huge pool all to yourself, comfortable bed and couch, large tv, a complete kitchen and a shower built for 2. It is an incredible property and location. Did I say location... Walk down the hill to the bus stop which takes you everywhere. We chose to get hybrid pedal bikes which we only used 4 days. The spokes break and there is only 1 place left to get them Elbow beach rental. Get there early they are a bit unorganized but have the best prices for pedal bikes, hybrids and scooters and nice people just breath and enjoy the koi pond while you wait. They delivered us a scooter for the rest of the 2 weeks when enough spokes broke. We did our grocery shopping at all the different markets and side stands for fresh veggies. There is a great organic market a few miles away with organic meat. Try the sausage Watson farms. But remember you can't take any home. Make your reservation early at Cocunuts (Reefs Hotel) at the bottom of the hill. Get a table down to the left. The walls are all cut into the rock and the ocean is so beautiful. They have just enough lighting. We had a private dance with our music on my husbands phone very romantic and worth the money. The food was good. We found Henry the VIII was our favorite night spot. To each their own but we liked the food and dancing. Excellent roasted veggies, sea food and soup. The walk home was only a few blocks and very safe. Bring a good flash light. We renewed our vows and the top of Gibbs lighthouse. This is also the very best place to get your trinkets for the grandchildren etc. Very reasonable!!! check out all the beaches but try to go a bit later when the cruise ships leave, you will have it ALL to yourself. Bring a good sun hat, water, sunscreen. See you 2016
