Sarah Van de Weg purchased this Apartment in 2018
Why Sarah Van de Weg chose Sandys
Situated on the waterside in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas in Bermuda. Its a quiet private enclave tucked away and private, but close to Dockyards buzzing tourist centre with shops, restaurants, tours and artisans. Best place ever!
What makes this Apartment unique
Waterside living at its best, swim in the ocean, sunbathe on the dock, lounge and BBQ on the oceanside. Watch the turtles while you have your coffee and the glorious sun sets.

Prince Alfred Terrance
We absolutely loved our accommodations - exceptional spacious and clean. A tad away from the hub of Bermuda but the walk to the dockyards to get the ferry was a quick 15 minute walk tops. Would definitely return here again and will definitely recommend.
Thank you Sarah for a wonderful vacation at the Prince Alfred Terraces. The unit was immaculate and the grounds were pristine. We enjoyed the swimming platform at the waters edge and the snorkeling was incredible. Sarah provided all the information we needed to traverse the island. My future recommendations are small and did not effect a 5 star rating. I would suggest extra blankets and top sheets to be on site. As well as, soap for the showers and at least 2 blow dryers for a 3 bedroom house (there was one). Sarah was on hand to get us what we needed so it did dampen our time spent there. Highly recommended.
Clean, updated and enjoyable!
This place is very nice. It was clean, pretty, and had all the basics. I would've preferred a few more items in the kitchen, like a measuring cup, a second skillet, and maybe a small paring knife, but it had the necessities and worked well. The appliances were updated, and the bedrooms & bathrooms had adequate linens (I'm American and do prefer a top bed sheet but apparently that's not the British norm). There was a hair dryer in one bathroom, not both. There is one small smart tv with basic cable in the family room. I'm sure if I had asked Sarah for any of these kitchen items she would have gotten them but I didn't ask.
It was our first time to Bermuda so we didn't know how to choose which side of the island to stay. This is by Dockyard which we enjoyed. It isn't near the downtown area of Hamilton but other parts of the island are accessible by bus, ferry or cab.
Sarah is very easy to work with and also accommodating with check in, departure, and items needed while you're staying there (like a blender she got for us and also bus/ferry tickets). She also answered any questions we had in a timely manner.
This place is like a condo and you share your courtyard with one other unit. The dock at the water is communal, for swimming, paddle boarding or snorkeling. There is also a nice lounging area by the fire place and outdoor grill.
There is a bus stop directly in front of the building for easy access. The walk to Dockyard where you'll find shopping, restaurants, museum, cruise ships and rental options for scooters, jet skis, snorkel tours, etc is about a 15 min walk. Upon arrival it seems daunting but after walking it once it is very enjoyable and quite safe. There are a few beaches nearby, 10-15 minute walk. It is relatively easy to hail a cab out front...easier when cruise ships are in because of the extra traffic.
Very nice stay. Absolutely beautiful water and natural surroundings. And Sarah was great!
Beautiful Bermuda with Friends
This was a great location, spacious,beautiful views of the bay, close to all transportation.! The community dock was enjoyable and allowed for meeting other guests. We liked learning about the history of the area.
Home at the Dockyard
Sarah was a wonderful person to work with. She answered questions, and she volunteered a lot of help. Her materials answered virtually every practical question we had.
We loved being near the Dockyard, and we loved the deck that extends out right over the water - it was terrific. We snorkeled right off the deck most days, and we just enjoyed sitting out and watching the activity in the Great Harbor. We could see turtles and swim with them, as well as swimming with lots of different and colorful fish.
We walked into the Dockyard,, and took cabs to most other places on the island. We did not rent scooters, but it would have been helpful to do that.
The condo was exactly what was in the pictures. We loved the ground floor location, particularly for the porch and garden area in the back. The space was lovely.
Clean modern wonderful home.
We stayed for one week in a 3 bedroom unit. Every room had a view. The place was clean and simply refreshing. It was also only 10 mins away from all tours and water sports (dockyard). Would highly recommend.
