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.

A LOVELY LOCATION AND A GRACIOUS HOST

  • 5 of 5
Cathy is a gracious host who helped my fiancee and I daily in our plans to see as much of Bermuda as we could. Her apartment was clean and cozy with a kitchenette for which she added a hot plate at our request. There was plenty of space to put our things and a bathroom that was clean and useful (the shower does not have the best water pressure but it is still usable and very clean).

We didn't spend much time in the apartment as the location was perfect for snorkeling or beaching at nearby Church Bay or walking to one of the restaurants in the area (Henry VIII was a favorite of ours). It is walking distance to the #7 bus and about a 10-minute walk from the #8. Both buses run fairly frequently on Monday-Friday but are less useful on the weekends.

Definitely get a ride in and out of the country with Cal - and ask her about her husband's fish cakes, they are delicious.

Overall a wonderful stay - we are going to return. Thanks!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place to be on the lovely island of Bermuda. The cottage is located in an ideal location. It's close to the best views, beaches, and restaurants. The bus stops right outside the property, or you can rent a scooter around the corner. Church Bay is magnificent! My husband and I traveled all over the island and found we truly were in the very best spot. Cathy is a gem! We were taken care of from the time we stepped out of the airport, until we returned 5 days later. She is welcoming, friendly, and so very helpful. She will organize airport taxi service, make restaurant reservations, etc. Cathy takes good care of her guests. When you book the room, you will be sent emails with information about your stay. It felt like we were staying at a friend's home. I would highly recommend this property, which exceeded my expectations.

PERFECT SPOT IN SOUTHAMPTON

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely fell in love with this spot. The location was perfect for quick walk to the beach for a snorkel or a swim at one of the most perfect snorkel beaches in Bermuda, Church Bay,

Cathy has thought of everything in her appointments in this tidy bedroom cottage. Everything was just perfect from the minute we stepped off the prearranged van, to the last evening sitting by the pool, we loved every second and can't wait to return. After we left we stayed at the Fairmont Princess for two night but we both agreed we preferred staying at Cathy's perfect spot in Southampton. The melodic sounds of the tree frogs at night, to the pristine pool outside our door. Perfect vacation.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit, so obviously we like Allamanda! The location is amazing, the cottage is extremely comfortable and well maintained. Cathy provides everything you need to have a good time. We started and ended each day with a swim in the beautiful pool. Surrounded my mature planting, it is very private and the pool, like everything else, was spotless. After our morning swim and breakfast out by the pool, we took off on our scooters each day. Dinner was had back by the pool...wonderful local fish on the barbeque most nights. Bermuda is such a friendly place, we had a blast. Do yourselves a favor and book at Allamanda or Bougainvillea, you'll be glad you did!

HOME SWEET BERMUDA

  • 5 of 5
This was the second stay in as many years for my wife and I at Allamanda, and there will be more to come. We have been visiting Bermuda for a number of years, now, and after staying in several other fine guest houses we have found our favorite here. The location is one reason this property is so outstanding. We love being able to walk to Church Bay, which has world-class snorkeling. We also really love the access to all of the fantastic beaches up and down the South Road. Also, the property is very clean and comfortable. Allamanda is a cute little room with a comfy bed, a small table. The bathroom has a welcoming shower. There is a kitchen sink, a cupboard of tableware, and a refrigerator. There is a large closet, a dresser, a small TV, coffee maker, and a toaster oven, and the door opens up to the pool. It gets excellent light. My wife and I have a breakfast ritual of enjoying some homemade pastries (brought frozen to the island--there is a chest freezer you can access) and coffee by the pool each morning. It's just delightful to wake up slowly with something sweet while "Fred," the lizard shows off his colorful gullet. The most important part about Allamanda, though, is Cathy and her family. I can't recall ever meeting an impolite Bermudian, but Cathy goes out of her way to make your stay special. For instance, she remembered the exact date of our anniversary on our second stay. Then there was the time, during our first stay, when we were looking for a Bermudian cultural memento--the ceramic longtail ornament decorating many of the homes you see around the island--and Cathy not only found the one maker of these items on the island but picked one up to save our precious beach time. There was the time she introduced us to her neighbor in order to show us her lovely garden. We've had a number of good conversations with Cathy, her boyfriend, David, and her adult children. They're just good people and a good family. It's a pleasure to stay with them. They make you want to write a glowing review.

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!
