My boyfriend and I planned our trip to Bermuda a few months beforehand and throughout the entire process Wendell was so helpful and responsive. He provided a very detailed overview of his home and what he offers to all of his guests, which is much more than what other homeowners on HomeAway offer. Even when our trip had to be postponed due to a hurricane, Wendell was so accommodating. He allowed us to change our reservation at no additional cost and worked with our new schedule to ensure he would be available to pick us up from the airport and drop us off.
Upon arrival, Wendell picked us up and gave us a very informative and breathtaking tour of the entire island! He gave us recommendations for pretty much everything - restaurants, beaches, hikes, excursions, etc. He also highly recommended that we rent scooters for the week rather than taking the bus and it was a game-changer for us! We had planned to buy a weekly bus pass, but we decided to take his advice and it was so worth it! Everything he told us was absolutely accurate and it allowed us to do everything we wanted to while we were there.
Overall, our experience was absolutely amazing. The home was quaint and comfortable. There were several brochures on the table for us to read through and Wendell offered beach towels and chairs for our use the entire week. I could go on and on all day about how perfect Wendell and his home were for us! If you're on the fence, I highly recommend you stop your search and make a reservation with Wendell right now!
While in Bermuda, we stayed in two rentals - one in St. George's and the other at Two Hearts Cottage. Two Hearts cottage was in a great location and was very convenient but the accommodations were a big disappointment. We enjoyed the lovely deck but the place was not comfortable. First, the cottage was dank, musty and smelled of mold. We opened all of the windows to air out the place, and that helped, but didn't get rid of the problem. My wife and daughter awoke each morning coughing, congested and with a sore throat. Wendell said that living on an island, every place is like this, but we did not have this problem in the other place we stayed. The second issue was cockroaches, mainly in the kitchen. Wendell said that he sprayed before we arrived and he put down traps, but we saw at least a half dozen scurrying around! When we complained to Wendell, he said that this was part of "island living". Again, we did not have this problem in our location. While Wendell was very nice and friendly, we found that he discounted our concerns and tried to convince us that every place was like this. We were not convinced. Also, considering that eating out is so expensive in Bermuda, we cooked in a lot. The kitchen had just the basics, and nothing else. More pots, pans, utensils, etc, would have been a welcomed touch. Since we paid cash in full, and up front, we couldn't find a new place to stay, but we would have liked to. We were uncomfortable with the smell, disgusted with the roaches and would definitely not recommend this place..
My family went to Bermuda for Cup Match to visit family. This location was perfect for us. My husband / son rented a scooter and my daughter and I took the bus. The bus stop is at the end of a short walk to middle road. Wendell went to town to get our weekly bus ticket which was perfect. Wendell and his wife were very hospitable and brought us items we needed for cooking (pot holders etc). The air conditioning in the unit was great. Ft Scaur is very close by and a walk away. Definately worth taking in the views. There were several items which needed some attention in the unit when we stayed in August and brought it to the attention of Wendell. I am sure he will attend to them. We would stay here again the next time we visit Bermuda.
My parents, my boyfriend, and I decided to stay at Two Hearts for vacation. We had an amazing week in Bermuda. Wendell was so kind, responsive, informative, and personable. We encountered a plumbing issue during our stay and he immediately came over with his wife to help remedy it. When that didn't work, he had a plumber come over as soon as he was available.
The neighbors were super kind and gave us ideas of where to go - they also tried to contact their fisherman friend to get us some local fish and while that didn't pan out, their attempts were much appreciated.
This location, though, was truly the shining component of this home. Not only is the home in very good condition with pretty views of the harbor, but it's very close to Dockyard amenities/restaurants and the drive to Hamilton was easy, too. Additionally, it's an easy drive to the beaches on the Southern shore - Horseshoe Bay, Church Bay, etc.
We adored Wendell and his wife and would recommend this rental to anyone who is considering it.
I had a fantastic week in a beautiful cottage. I can highly recommend it. The view is spectacular. Every room is decorated different and very cosy. The neighbourhood is very friendly. It is very convenient that the bus stop is just in front of the main road. The owners are a great couple. They picked me up and brought me to the airport. They told me everything about the island and gave me useful advice. This is definately not the last time that I visited this beautiful paradise. I can highly recommend it.
Wendell and his wife Xinia met us at the airport and gave us a scenic tour on our
way to Somerset. We found "Two Hearts" cottage to be comfortable, clean and nicely decorated, with many lovely paintings. The bus pick-up at the end of the
Street was good to go to either end of the Island with many stops in between.
We also took the ferry from the Dock Yard to Hamilton to board a boat to watch
the "Louis Vitton" regatta including Oracle and 5 other countries.
Weather in mid October was warm. We enjoyed our first visit to Bermuda
We'll be back!!
