Oyster Point Boathouse
The Boathouse exceed all our expectations, which were anyway high given what was on the website. In real life the property was even better than it looked online. A big attraction had been the water-front location, but the photo online really does not convey just how great the aspect is nor that there are schools of fish (and even a couple of turtles) that swim on the doorstep. The Boathouse is very well equipped, attractively arranged, very bright inside and remains suitably cool with a through draught. A real bonus is the lovely little beach of your own complete with kayak. Being able to launch the kayak at a whim and paddle around the local inlets and bays is magical. The hosts also offered bikes, which they checked were road worthy with a little advanced notice. The bikes gave great mobility along the railway trial for exploring the island. Last, but certainly not least, the hosts were wonderful. They were very efficient in responding before arrival and while we were at the Boathouse they were the perfect mix of attentive but not intrusive. Brian always seemed to be miraculously around when you needed to ask him a question, although the door was always open. Dorothy was really hospitable and bakes the finest rum cake. We can recommend the Boathouse unreservedly.
Paradise in Bermuda
We loved our stay at the boathouse and hope to visit again soon! All the wonderful reviews says it all! Did not want to leave. We enjoyed meeting the family and loved being greeted each time by the sweet pups! Dorothy and Brian are wonderful hosts and we so loved the amazing rum cake upon arrival! We have stayed in the past at some of Bermuda's hotels and this by far was so much better! Thanks you so much Brian and Dorothy for allowing us to spend our 40th anniversary in your paradise!
We have been coming to Bermuda for decades and in some recent years, more than twice in a year. We know the island and we know what we like. We loved our stay at Brian and Dorothy’s boathouse. I could go on and on about how wonderful it is and how wonderful the hosts are. But what says it best is that we haven’t left yet and we have booked the boathouse for next year already. We cannot wait to be back! We have been all over the island and this is perfection for us. You cannot find nicer people to stay with, either. Thank you for everything, Brian and Dorothy. We cannot express our appreciation for all you have done for us , enough.
Can't say anything bad about the place. Great location on the island, nice host, cute, neat, little cottage on the water with unobstructed sunsets. Fed the fish & turtles right from our patio-had I brought my rod, I know I could've hooked a jack or snapper.
Just perfect! Even more adorable in person!
The hosts could not have been more helpful, gracious or knowledgeable. The house is perfectly appointed with everything you need to have a truly memorable and marvelous time. Great location, beautiful views and plenty of opportunities to relax, unwind and unplug. We will be back!
Relaxing bit of paradise!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here. It was so peaceful and relaxing and simply beautiful. We were within approximately a 5 minute walk to the bus route and walking paths. There are also restaurants within walking distance. We also enjoyed a kayak ride and watching the fish and turtles from the sitting area right next to the water. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel room.
