Bus stops, fast ferry and local supermarket are but a 5-7 minute walk away (this is super great if you do not intend to rent a moped). Close to home, you will have the pleasure of exploring Horseshoe Bay and Warwick Long Bay ( 10 min. moped ride, or 20 min. local bus), Elbow Beach is walking distance (30 minutes if you are in good shapes. 40 min for a leisure walk ).
After a long day of exploring sit and relax in the private courtyard with the gentle breeze, doze off to the trickling of the water falls from the fountain.
Cook your dinner on the newly purchased gas BBQ while sipping wine and listen to the tree frogs serenade the night away.
Don't feel like cooking there are many Fine dining restaurants close to home: Fourways Inn is just down the street (Jacket for the gents please). The Blu Bar and Grill served up excellent food and has gorgeous views. A five minutes moped ride from the apartment. Dine at Beau Rivage at Newstead and enjoy the stunning view of Hamilton. Also a five minutes ride from apartment.
There are also nice roadside cafes for breakfast or lunch which are very easy on the pocket. Fourstar Pizzas and Grill, Island cuisine to name a few.
The Railway trail is but a 10 minutes walk from the apartment. There you can jog, walk, bike at your leisure and enjoy the peaceful scenery.
Golf courses: There are four golf courses nearby for you to play: Riddell’s Bay, The Belmont Golf Course, the Fairmont Princess Golf Club and the Port Royal Golf Course are all within 10 minutes of the property and each offers its own unique challenge.
Accessing the beaches and restaurants is easy either by bus or by moped. The apartment has easy access to the to ferry which has a direct route to the charming village of Somerset where shops and cafes makes lingering for a while a very pleasant diversion. The remarkable renovated installation at the Naval Dockyard property (a British Navy base built in the early 1820’s) has created a plaza and shopping concourse as well as a series of excellent museums, pubs, artists workshops, book stores and the like as well as the hugely popular DOLPHIN QUEST operation. These shops and museums operations are all neatly contained in spectacularly restored historic buildings dotted throughout a park setting on the furthest west end of the island. Fast ferries and buses depart and arrive from the Dockyard facility all day long. The views from The Commissioner’s House are jaw dropping as you can see from one end of the island all the way to the other, with ocean liners sedately negotiating the Two Rock Passage , the sole opening in the reefs large enough to provide safe access to Kings Wharf in Somerset or Hamilton Harbour. A visit to Bermuda without seeing Dockyard would not be complete.
Daniels Head Beach Park and Somerset Long Bay are quiet beaches you will want to explore...as well as The Railway Trail, a meandering paved pathway through the countryside throughout the island you can explore on foot or by moped . The Trail is the land right of way owned by the government for long defunct railway system. No cars or trucks are allowed upon it, so the amble will take you through beautiful park like settings overlooking the water and the interesting homes and gardens you would not otherwise notice.
The City of Hamilton also has lovely places to dine and shop, and in the summer months through to October, Harbour Nights on Front Street on Wednesday evenings is a sparkling outdoor market event. With live music, delicious food and unusual locally made items to buy, the street is shut to vehicular traffic and the better shops remain open. Everyone congregates happily til 10 pm. and then drifts off to window-shop, or investigate the night clubs, bars and cafes. The city is easily reached by bus, ferry or moped, with taxis available to whisk you away home at the end of the evening.
