Everything was great about this place. Check in was great. Online info did not disappoint in real life! Jody and his wife were great! Only thing that wasn’t ok was the sworn of termites that happened our first night there 😔�🥴�. However short our stay, Jody was prompt in attending to our needs and gave us a full refund! We ended up having a beautiful time In Bermuda and would definitely be back. We would stay here again and recommend this place... minus the extra guests.
Thank you for your review and again please accept our apology on the mishap with wood rafters in a Tropical Island :( As always, our priority is our guests, we took care of you, then, called the Company and chose the heat application over chemical application.
The Problem: SOLVED!
We shall have another bottle of wine ready for your return 🙂� 🙂�

Great location. Very clean. Friendly host. Would recommend.
Basic condiments would have been useful
Absolutely beautiful, we went for warmth and relaxing, that is exactly what we got , Jody and Cathy were wonderful hosts and the apartment was clean, well equipped ,perfectly located , just a wonderful vacation start to end
Don't book anywhere else!
What a magical month we spent at this Home Away! We didn't get to meet Cathy but Jody could not have been more helpful. The view of Mangrove Bay is spectacular and the place had everything that you could possibly need. The bus is just outside and will take you anywhere you need to go. Jody had bus passes all ready for us on our arrival. The King sized bed was very comfortable and we saved money eating often in the well equipped kitchen. Very handy for the Dockyard and the Watford Bridge Ferries. The Country Squire Restaurant across the road has great food and rum swizzles. Outside noise can be heard but we just decided to enjoy the Island sounds. We couldn't have been happier and we would strongly recommend that you stay here.
Great view, easy access to transit, beaches, anything you need!
This is a good sized, very clean, airy space for 2 people with room to spare. Good little kitchen, comfy king bed......and a great view of Mangrove Bay😊🐢. Great turtle watching. Lovely beaches and several little local snack bar/ restaurants within easy walking distance in either direction, and bus stops just steps away. We used buses and ferries extensively and fully enjoyed the island. Highly recommend this location! Jody and Cathy are present and responsive; great hosts.
Cozy and quiet little hide away
Terrific little one room suite with everything on my bucket list, workable kitchen, bathroom with walk in shower , king size bed and a view of the water. This great little spot in Somerset was home for a week, spotlessly clean, very modern loft type suite. It’s close to the bus stops and Jody was such a great help to us finding locations during our stay. Listening to the frogs in the trees in the evenings and watching all the little boats out in the bay during the daytime was a great way to spend a week in Bermuda
