About Elaine & Richard Watkinson
We are a married couple (41 years and counting!) with three adult offspring. Living in Bermuda, we enjoy vacationing in places that are cooler - hence our interest in skiing. We enjoy the scale of landscapes and walking in unpopulated, unspoiled places.
Why Elaine & Richard Watkinson chose Warwick
The cottage has been renovated to a high standard with all new appliances and virtually all new furnishings and fittings. Bedrooms have plenty of storage and windows are equipped with shutters outside and blackout blinds inside. The twin beds in the second bedroom can be configured as a king if required. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a basement laundry room with brand new large capacity washer and dryer - also ironing facilities. The cottage has it's own patio with outdoor furniture and gas BBQ grill. There is a separate entrance to the cottage and there is parking space for scooters and charge points for the new Twizy electric cars.
What makes this Cottage unique
We live next door to the cottage and are happy to answer questions and provide recommendations. We are in a quiet neighborhood - away from main roads. However, the cottage is close to bus and ferry stops. Maps are provided in the house manual showing the locations and routes to the public transport stops as well as copies of the bus and ferry timetables. We also provide a few bus tickets to get guests into the Hamilton Bus Station where additional tickets or passes can be purchased. There is snorkeling gear available - masks & snorkels, flippers - as well as plenty of beach towels. There are two mountain bikes and helmets available for guest use. We have a charge point for up to two of the Twizy Electric Cars to provide overnight charging at no additional cost.

Fantastic Summer Break
The cottage was a perfect home from home for our family. The owners helped arrange a ride from the airport. When we arrived we were greeted by them too and they gave us a ride for a grocery trip. Kitchen was nicely appointed and we enjoyed dining outside on the patio. The walk to the nearest bus stop and the beach was not too far. Cottage proved a great base for exploring Bermuda and would stay again next time we visit.
Wonderful property, welcoming hosts
The house was in excellent condition and contained all the necessities needed for a week long stay. The homeowners were very friendly and knowledgeable about the island. They arranged transportation from the airport to the home for us, and even gave us a ride to pick up the scooters. We would definitely stay here again on a return visit to Bermuda.
Wonderful 2 weeks
Elaine and Richard are exceptional hosts, the Hideaway Cottage has been one of the best holiday accommodation we've experienced. Without hesitation we would recommend the Hideaway Cottage to anyone looking for an impeccable vacation home with great privacy and walking distance to a beautiful beach. We wanted for nothing and the cottage is 5 stars all around.
We loved our week at Hideaway Cottage. Its Twizy charging station made it very convenient to zip around to various points of interest (in our case, beaches & nature reserves) on the beautiful island. We cooked almost all our meals in the modern, super clean, and extremely well-stocked kitchen. Tea on porch in the morning, reading and listening to birdsong, was a relaxing way to start each day. Nights were quiet and comfy. Just two of us, so more than adequate space to unpack and spread out. We well took advantage of the 15-minute walk to Southlands beach and the 10-minute walk to Astwood Park. It was a lovely week, restful yet active. Perfect! Thanks!
Wonderful cottage. Great hosts.
Cottage is very well designed and feels larger than its listed size. It is equipped with all new appliances as well as an abundance of glassware, dishes and pots and pans to accommodate meals at home. It is located easy walking distance to either bus or ferry transportation. Elaine and Richard are verry attentive hosts who provided assistance when needed and they happen to live next door.
Charming accommodation as well as wonderful hosts makes this property a strong candidate for a great Bermuda vacation.
