Stayed a month during Bermuda's "winter". Crooked Elbow is a very clean, lovely large 1 bedroom apartment. Kitchen was a bit challenging as we cooked a lot: should replace warped large frying pan; sink is small - no dishwasher, but we adjusted. Especially enjoyed the sunroom's dining table for breakfasts & dinners. Enjoyed coffee/wine on lovely porch pictured. Apartment is 1 level. Free wifi worked great. TV gets all major stations. Laundromat is 3-minute walk (Beware: need to purchase laundry card & then add money to card - takes Bermuda dollars only). Local grocery store is 5 min walk. We did take the bus to Shelly Bay (15 min scenic ride) to occasionally shop at large grocery store right off bus stop - excellent fresh fish counter & larger selection of everything. We didn't use bedroom AC; owners may or may not be adding AC to living room/kitchen. Great location: bus is 3 min walk; 5 minute walk into town: nice restaurants, bakery, museums; short walk to Tobacco Bay beach; bus to Hamilton is about 45 min scenic ride. Bus routes take you to all the sites/walks you want to explore across entire island. Roads are narrow, winding, no shoulder - advise against scooters & for me, Dramamine was helpful! Crooked Elbow comes w/ free transportation passes(includes all bus routes & ferries. Can't emphasize enough how great it is to have these! Mrs. Rowe, owner, lives upstairs but certainly gives you your privacy. She is absolutely a delight to meet!
If you must have a Holiday Inn/Resort type place with new modern furniture etc, this is not the place for you. BUT, if you'd like to live in a charming historical rehabbed home, in the midst of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and enjoy convenient transportation across the entire island, you'll enjoy Crooked Elbow .
My wife and I spent eight days in St. Georges. It was our first time in Bermuda and if we ever come back we will definitely rent this apartment again. It was charming, spacious, and had everything we needed. More importantly, the location was great. Walking distance to restaurants, beaches, bus stops, and on the cutest street in Bermuda.
Crooked Elbow is located on the edge of the quaint historic town of St George's. You do not need to rent scooters or taxis to get around or to fetch your groceries. Everything including a grocery store, bus stop, ferry stop, waterfront restaurants, a pharmacy, museums and shops are all just a few minutes walk away. Three lovely beaches with excellent snorkeling are about a 10 minute walk from the Crooked Elbow. The fast ferry which runs in the summer will take you directly to the opposite end of the island, and buses leave every 15 to 30 minutes to take you to Hamilton and beyond; although you will probably feel so at home in St George's that you will not often want to wander far.
Crooked Elbow is in a great location for direct transportation to America's Cup events in May/June 2017.
