BOUGAINVILLEA

Bermuda Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Location, Luxury, Affordability near Church Bay - a snorkeler's paradise!

Bermuda, a small Island in the Atlantic featuring exquisite pink beaches, enchanting blue waters, old world hospitality and a vibrant culture, is home to two new beautiful studios.

With stunning views, a pool on the property and beach access across the road, Allamanda and Bougainvillea offer a casually elegant affordable alternative to Bermuda's expensive resort properties. On the grounds of a private home on the beautiful South Shore, within walking distance of The Reefs Club and the famous Fairmont Southampton Hotel with their restaurants, entertainment and sports options including tennis, scuba diving, golf, watersports, world class spas and more, there is plenty to see and do in the neighbourhood.

Located on a major bus route linking all other points on the island, Horseshoe Bay and quieter pink sand beaches are a scant 5 minutes away and Hamilton, the capital, and quaint Somerset Village are each 20 minutes away. There is also a moped rental shop within walking distance.

I grew up on the island and can't imagine calling anywhere else home! Each time I have a chance to welcome guests, whether 'newbies' or 'repeaters', I am reminded of just how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place. Having the chance to share my beautiful island home is a wonderful treat for me...and hopefully for 'my' guests too!

I didn't choose Bermuda; Bermuda effectively chose me and I am so glad!

Perfectly located on Bermuda's South Shore with amazing water views and offering easy access to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, including Church Bay Beach and Horseshoe Bay, this is a charming property with many wonderful features. Although modern throughout in its conveniences, its architecture is traditionally Bermudian; from the open beamed ceilings to the feature fireplaces, it oozes warmth and character. And when you step outside, the pool beckons and the view is spectacular.

World-Class Hospitality and Accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bougainvillea for a week in July as part of my 50th birthday celebration. My partner and I have traveled the world, from our homes in North America to the U.K., France, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, the Galapagos islands, South America, Hawaii and Asia. Yet, I must say that our stay with Cathy at Bougainvillea in Bermuda was by far one of the best experiences of our lives. We have never experienced anything like Cathy's hospitality. From the moment you meet Cathy, she makes you feel like she's a dear, life-long friend. She went out of her way to help us by purchasing bus tickets for us, helping us arrange scooter pick-up and return (and even helping me start my scooter when it was fussy), as well as providing recommendations for food and activities. Cathy periodically checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed, but we never felt like she was intruding on our privacy. And the room was absolutely wonderful. Our cottage was comfortable, immaculately clean, well-maintained, had a beautiful view, and is in a fabulous location that's a very short walk to Church Bay. We enjoyed lounging and snorkeling at Church Bay, particularly in the mornings when the water was calm. Cathy's property also has an inviting swimming pool, but we were so close to so many beautiful beaches like Horseshoe Bay that we never used the pool. It's also within walking distance of Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the outdoor patio. In sum, I suppose you could stay at one of the nearby, VERY expensive resorts, but you'll pay a fraction and have an unforgettable experience if you stay with Cathy. I would recommend Bougainvillea to friends and relatives with absolutely no reservations.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Without a doubt one of our very favorite places ever in Bermuda. Cathy is so welcoming and helpful, she feels like your old lost best friend. One can stay here and never need a bike or car or bus. Walking is easy to Reefs, Church Bay, Princess, Horseshoe Bay , Lighthouse,and all the walking you could ever want on Rail Trails.The large studio is comfy, huge!! bathroom, wonderful bed,and very accomodating kitchen area. We grilled every night and ate out on lawn overlooking ocean. A really 5 star place in Bermuda

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful home away from home. We felt comfortable and welcomed from the moment we arrived. Cathy is the perfect hostess and her property is welcoming and absolutely immaculate! She was very attentive to our needs and was able to offer advice about sight seeing and great places to dine. We highly recommend this rental if you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable get away just moments from the beach.

Cozy, Comfortable and Convenient Place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I stayed 5 nights at Bougainvillea and thoroughly enjoyed it. Cathy was a wonderful hostess, helping us in many ways: she procured our bus passes, arranged for our airport transportation, answered all our questions and generally took care of us. A very lovely and friendly person - there is no way you could not like her!!
The room was clean, comfortable and well-maintained: a king size bed with a fireplace, a huge bathroom and a small but nice kitchenette, complete with dishes. We picked up groceries for breakfast and had wine and appetizers available in the room. We also had our own nice patio with ocean views.
This is a great location, with the beach/park just across the street. The bus stop is just down the road, so we took the bus to Hamilton, The Dockyards and St. Georges on different days. We were in walking distance to The Lighthouse (with The Dining Room restaurant - loved it), Henry VIII restaurant, The Reefs Hotel and other gorgeous beaches. We could also walk to the Railroad Trail for running or walking.
This was our first experience with HomeAway and we were certainly not disappointed. I would highly recommend Cathy's place. And according to the guest book, everyone has enjoyed it. She also has a beautiful pool. It was too cool for us to use in March, but that would be another great feature for the warmer seasons. We had relatives staying in Allamanda, the other unit at Cathy's house, so that was a very nice arrangement, being so close, but still having privacy.

Even Better!

  • 5 of 5
Bermuda is fantastic and Bougainvillea is the place to stay. The location and accommodations are superb, and Cathy is a tremendous hostess! This was our first trip to Bermuda and we could not have been happier with the experience. The listing is completely accurate...except even better. The studio is quiet, clean, and well appointed with everything you need. Cathy is friendly, knowledgeable, and tremendously warm and gracious. The location is beyond compare -- a bus stop is just a few steps down the road, Church Bay is a few minutes walk and, if you don't mind walking just a little further, there are some great restaurants and attractions that are easily walkable. We walked as much a we rode the buses, and loved the convenience of being able to do things on the spur of the moment. But beyond the accommodations and location, Cathy makes the entire trip so easy. She arranged for our pick up at the airport, and Cal the taxi driver (friendly, gracious and a safe driver to boot) showed us some sites and took us by the grocery store on the way from the airport to Cathy's. Cathy was ready for us, had upgraded us to Bougainvillea since it was unoccupied for the week and showed us around her place. Cathy had purchased our buses passes for us ahead of time, had a bunch of information about where to go and what to do, and sincerely told us to just let her know if we needed anything. She checked in with us a couple times over the week to make sure we were doing well. And far too soon, Cal was back in the driveway to drop us back at the airport (by way of a few road side sites she discovered we had missed) for our departure. Everything was enjoyable and effortless. We loved everything about our stay, would definitely recommend it, and hope to return some time soon.

Perfect Plus More

  • 5 of 5
Bougainvillea was better than Cathy said it would be. She even had extra stuff there to make our stay easier and more enjoyable.
And the location is perfect. Out of the way of the city, and 100 paces from a bus-stop.

Located on Bermuda's famed South Shore, within walking distance of beautiful Church Bay Beach, the award winning Reefs Hotel & Club and on a major bus route linking all points on the island, this location is ideal for your next vacation. Whether sunning by the pool, swimming in the warm waters of Church Bay, relaxing at La Serena Spa at The Reefs Hotel and Club, climbing the Gibb's Hill Lighthouse and then rewarding yourself with something to eat or drink there (or at one of the other many restaurants in the area), you will have plenty to see and do in the neighbourhood.

Just a little further down the road (heading east) you will find The Fairmont Southampton Hotel and all it has to offer, including golf, tennis, scuba diving and, of course, their world class Willow Stream spa! Beyond that is Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda's most famous beach. From there you can walk the coast to discover many beautiful inlets, including Jobson's Cove, perhaps the most photographed scene in Bermuda.

Heading west you will find the Royal Naval Dockyard at the extreme western end of the island.

Of course, in between you may want to spend some time at Port Royal Golf Course, the home of the recent PGA Grand Slam, less than a mile away...or exploring Fort Scaur, quaint Somerset Village or any number of beaches in between. Have a sunset drink at Pompano Beach...or Cambridge Beaches along the way...and don't forget to catch the world's smallest drawbridge en route. You won't be disappointed!

Of course there's lots to do in the other direction too. St. George's, the former capital and World Heritage Site, lies at the eastern end of the island while, Hamilton, the current capital city and home to international business, lies in between. On your way to St. George, be sure to visit the Bermuda Aquarium, Crystal Caves and the beautiful Botanical gardens...where you will also find Masterworks, Bermuda's art museum extraordinaire!
