Perfect spot in the middle of this quaint parish.
If I could live here I would. Swimming off the steps into the water, laying in the perfectly manicured garden, mere steps to everything in town. We will be back for sure, we've always loved St Geo and now we've found the perfect place to live it from.
We are frequent visitors to the island. We just can't stay away. We usually stay in Hamilton or along the South shore. This was our first venture to the East end but not our last. Our first impression was how private the property is, even though it's smack in the middle of St. George. Walls on either side define the property and keep out the noise. The cottage is charming and perfect for two people. The beautiful succulent garden fronts on the harbor and provides amazing. views of St. Davids across the way. The cottage is fully outfitted and has everything you'll need for simple meals. Nicki, our host and manager was quick to respond to every need (few) and every request (several). She is charming and energetic and went out of her way to make our stay memorable.
Buses to everywhere are less than two blocks away. The grocery is three and is small but well stocked for vacationers. There are four fine dining restaurants within a two minute walk from the cottage. The main square is also just two minutes away. The ferry to Dockyard is a four minute walk. Shopping is too good and too close.
Takeaways: early morning coffee on the bench overlooking the harbor; afternoon cocktails on the patio; napping on the hammock in the shade; sticking our feet in the water at the foot of the bulkhead stairs and watching the parrot fish swimming by (bring your swimsuit).
After two dozen trips to Bermuda, we are ready to forego the high end accommodations we've frequented and plan to return to elegant simplicity of Smith Cottage.

Wonderful Waterfront Apt. in historic St. Georges
Great apartment within historic Smith House right on the waterfront. The large covered and nicely furnished balcony/deck overlooks the lovely resort-like grounds and harbor. Several excellent waterfront restaurants are walkable in less than five minutes. After a day of beaching/exploring the islands, coming back, getting cleaned up and then walking to dinner is a huge benefit. St. Georges has a number of historic sites and several beaches within a 15 minute walk. The public ferry dock is a five minute walk and buses are easy to access as well. Our favorite aspect of the apartment was the balcony. We spent mornings out there with breakfast and books, and evenings just relaxing before and after dinner. Linda was a terrific host and an excellent source of advice and assistance. I discovered I had left my wallet in a taxi an hour after the fact and Linda made a couple phone calls and I had my wallet returned in tact an hour later. This was our first trip to Bermuda and we won't hesitate to stay here again. Beautiful beaches, quaint towns and a very safe feeling environment. Skip the over-priced resorts and big hotels; stay here-you'll be glad you did.

We would give Smith Cottage six stars if possible. It is a private location right in the middle of St. Georges, a historical UNESCO site . It is five minutes from the ferry terminal and bus stop that provides transportation to the whole island. The cottage is very well equipped with amenities and clean. One block away is Kings Square that is the center of activity with restaurants and entertainment. Linda, the owner/manager, takes very good care of her guests to make sure they enjoy their stay. We highly recommend staying there and hope to return.
A lovely stay at the perfect location!
This quaint little cottage is tucked away with a private entrance and a beautiful view, while also a very short walk to all the sights in St. Georges. You can relax on the patio overlooking the harbor, and then easily explore the shops and restaurants just around the corner. Wahoo's Pub is a lively little place for lunch, dinner or cocktails. And for a nice dinner, we highly recommend The Tempest Bistro and The Wharf. All are right on Water Street and literally a 2-minute walk from the door of the cottage. Also very nearby are King's Square and St. Peter's church. Be sure to check out Kelly's Sea Glass shop for some beautiful hand-made items, just a short walk up Water Street. This was our first trip to Bermuda and Linda was the perfect host and so helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
St. Georges is a World Heritage Centre with wonderful historical fortifications within walking distance, fabulous pink beaches where you can relax, snorkel or swim.
Relax with the locals in the Town Hall and Square where you can watch the dunking of the local gossip in the harbor.
A ferry ride to Royal Naval Dockyard, a must see The Commissioners House and the Dolphins.
