Overview

Bermuda Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering fully-equipped beachfront studio apartment at Marley Beach

Breathtaking beach and ocean views, centrally located, convenient to public transportation and only 10 minutes from Hamilton. This large beachfront studio apartment is only steps away from Marley Beach, a romantic, secluded, private beach on Bermuda's famous and beautiful South Shore. Sand Pebble Studio has a fully-equipped kitchen, a large bed/sitting room with king sized bed or twins, dining table/chairs, flat-screened TV, patio with umbrella, table, chairs and barbecue. Beach chairs are provided.

Marley Beach with its pink sands and crystal clear waters has some of the best snorkeling in the area. Other area attractions include nearby restaurants, parks, Elbow and Horseshoe Beaches, Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, golf, tennis.

Year-round, the sunrises are spectacular. Marley Beach Cottages was previously a small hotel, but Sand Pebble Studio is the only beachfront studio apartment currently available to visitors.

Sand Pebble Studio at Marley and Special Times: Marley Beach Cottages was a well-known, small, intimate, casual and convenient hotel in years past. Ownership changed recently and it is no longer operating as a hotel. The current owner - Steve (son of June Stanton) and familiar to past guests of Marley, has renovated Sand Dollar and Sea Song both two bedroom cottage, and, Sand Pebble Studio. All three are are currently available to short term visitor rentals.

WHALE WATCH FROM YOUR PATIO!! From about mid-April through to end of mid May, you can enjoy watching for whales and their calves as they overnight just offshore for protection from predators. Seeing the whales breaching and blowing is an experience that leaves you feeling privileged indeed! BOOK EARLY for those weeks!

Making Memories: Many memories have been made at Marley. The beach was made famous in quite a few movies, including Chapter 11 and The Deep.

During the winter months, Bermuda's temperature range 68 - 72. There are many times when the temperature is in the mid 70s and on the South Shore, it feels like 75, with calm, sparkling waters, clear skies and warm breezes. Perfect weather for the beach, golfing, tennis, walking and more.

'Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away'.

All year the sunrises, clear turquoise waters, moon rises, and rainbow glimpses will certainly take your breath away when you visit us at Sand Pebble Studio at Marley Beach.

Golf, Tennis, and nearby Dining: Golf can be arranged at Riddell's Bay Golf Club, Mid Ocean Club, Port Royal Golf Course, Ocean View Golf Course, Belmont Hills and more. Ask us about this before you arrive, as tee times can be made in advance.

Nearby tennis courts include the ones at Elbow Beach Hotel and Fairmont Southampton Princess Hotel.

Restaurants within 10 minutes are: Henry VIII, Tio Pepe, Waterlot Inn, Bacci's, Swizzle Inn West, The Seahorse Grill at Elbow Beach Hotel, and Mickeys on the Beach at Elbow, Cafe Lido, Mickey's, Paraquet, Fourways Inn, Beau Rivage at Newstead, Blue (at the refurbished Belmont Golf Course) and Island Cuisine at Riddell's Bay.

Great location apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon also it was our firsr time in Bermuda. Going Bermuda in a off season was just wonderful, not too many people wherever we go. Having Marley beach all to ourselves was pretty amazing. We ran into some windsform during our stat, but it was wonderful to see the waves and the border of the reefs from your window.

The bus stops were just at the end of the driveway. We took the bus everywhere because it was so easy. We highly recommend to do grocery shoplong downtown right across from the church before getting on the bus from the main station. We found it slightly cheaper than the one cloest to Marley Beach. They also had great hot dishes and salad bar buffet style. It is a much cheaper way to do dinner.

Overall, great vacation!!!

Very nice and very private.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Sand Pebble was great. The place is very private and we were the only ones at Marley Beach for the entire week. We stayed the end of December 2015. The weather was perfect (highs in the low 70s and lows in the upper 60s). The water was a little chilly but still swimmable. All in all a great place.

Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week at the very clean Sand Pebble. We think it has the best view in Bermuda--away from busy city life!

Thank you for such a blissful spot. If only we could have calmed the frogs who were quite the singers each night!

Perfect honeymoon cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sand Pebble studio was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon. The view was spectacular! The beach was very private -we usually had it to ourselves. The studio cottage was clean, private quiet and had everything we needed. The owner and caretaker were very friendly and easy to work with. Great location , close to all attractions. We cant wait to go back!

Marley Beach Sand Pebble , Warwick Parish Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank you both for an incredible time at Marley Beach . It was absolutely amazing and the solitude of our studio and private beach were beyond our expectations . Sally is hooked and wants to go back (likeyesterday). The island has changed quite a bit but still has the charm and beauty I remember growing up there . We are Definitely thinking of returning soon and maybe even for the Americas cup in 2017 . Being Centrally located on the south shore made the accessability to shops, restaurants and sights very easy to attain , wheather we used the bus which stops right at the bottom of the driveway or we hopped on our scooters , within minutes you could travel to your destination . Nothing compares to the beauty of this Island paradise , the Turquoise water the sound of the tree frogs , the colorful lizards and the longtails gliding over the surf or the multiple varieties of vegetation which seem to always be in bloom . I miss our private beach and wish I were submerged in that water right now . Thanks again for an unforgettable vacation.

We will see you soon

Paul and Sally

Sand Pebble Studio is a short walk down a path and some steps to our own private Marley Beach, situated right between two of Bermuda's most famous beaches -- Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay. It is nestled between two parks -- Astwood Park and Southlands. You can quickly and easily explore Bermuda by taxi, bus, or moped from our central location. In the summertime, your vacation will be perfect as you snorkel the crystal clear water and watch the parrot fish and others on the shore front or outer reefs. Everything the vacationer could desire is nearby, including spas, tennis, golf, fine and casual dining and more. Wintertime is special in Bermuda, and if it's fine weather in January and February, you can still swim as well as enjoy strolling, birdwatching, golf, tennis and more. Those who have visited before know that Marley Beach is one of those truly magical places where memories are made that you will treasure forever!
