Living like a local in Bermuda
Beautiful, traditional Bermudan cottage set in substantial grounds in a quiet location.
Idyllic cottage, quiet village, big yard
My wife and I visited with our two kids (5 and 2 years old) for a week. The cottage was clean, the yard was big and safe for the kids to play, and Beth was very responsive to a couple of questions that we had during our stay.
Less than 100m from the house was a small private beach - only 10 metres or so long. I was blown away by how much sea life there was there daily - many turtles, small fry, bigger fish like jacks, squid, some parrot fish on the coral a few metres away. There was some glass which we had to watch out for - but this seems to be an endemic problem on Bermuda’s beaches, unfortunately.
One of our favourite things to take kayaks or a power boat to a string of picture perfect islands about 300 metres across the bay. H2O water sports 200 metres from the cottage has all that you need. Their power boats were good for touring too, and we headed across to Hamilton and tied up at the public dock on a few of the days while having lunch (1608 at the Fairmont is great).
The tourist hot spots (eg dockyards, horseshoe bay) are all a bus or taxi ride away and there a lot not many options close by for lunch or dinner. Cambridge Beaches resort and its restaurants are adults only (13 and over) so not for us although they looked very nice. It suited us fine, since we cooked in most nights and ate at the outside table.
My wife, a Canadian, was surprised about how noisy it is at night because of the tree frogs. They make a whistling sound. While it didn’t bother me, it kept her awake until we found some ear plugs. I think that you will find that everywhere in Bermuda.
Overall - a terrific family vacation and a great way to experience Bermuda!
Clean and quiet comfortable home
Somerset is a lovely part of Bermuda. The helpful tips we got before arrival made everything go very smoothly. The house is very comfortable and is equipped with everything you need.! We highly recommend this property.
We had an incredible time staying at coach house. The cottage is in an ideal location for ease of access to beaches and transport. The cottage was lovely with gorgeous gardens to enjoy. Owners were very helpful and organized so everything was easy to use.
Serenity, privacy and convenience - with no shortage of Bermudan charm!
This home has a great location, close to the Somerset bus stop, pharmacy and post office. A couple minute walk with your cup of coffee down "Tween Walls" and you are at the microbeach - a perfect spot to enjoy the sunrise and watch the boats in the bay. The kitchen has it all - eat in and you'll find everything you need including plenty of seating at a kitchen table and long granite bar with stools. Bermuda has a lot to offer - 10 minutes away you can rent an electric car (new for us this visit) like the Tazzari and tool around carefully on the Bermuda roads - still prefer the bus if we're going all the way to St George but its an option. Not exactly Tesla like acceleration but once it gets going, the little 'clown car' moves along with traffic reasonably. This is our second time here and we'll be back - we've enjoyed other locations in Bermuda but if you value privacy, this home is quiet and not even visible from the road due to a lush border of palms, hedges and plantings. About 10-15 minute walk to a ferry stop and you are on the ferry to Hamilton - arriving refreshed and ready to explore. Dockyard is obviously far closer to Somerset so that's an easy ride. Nothing not to like here!
Great Relaxing Location!
We had a great time exploring Somerset and Bermuda the past four days. Awesome that you can walk to H2O water sports, for groceries, and to a couple restaurants. We rented a boat one day and went over to Elys Harbor and a few great snorkeling spots and beaches we could pull up to and have to ourselves!! Thank you for a great rental experience for our family of 4👍�
Coach House is located between Cambridge Beaches and Somerset Village. The cottage is set in a private garden and has it's own waterfront and tiny beach a short walk down Tween Walls on Mangrove Bay. The large yard and calm waters are ideal from families with children. The natural beauty of Mangrove Bay may be enjoyed from the water on sailboats, kayaks, and motor boats available at H2O sports a short walk from the Cottage. Paddle around the island and through Somerset Bridge, famous for being the smallest drawbridge in the world. Rent bicycles from the kiosk at Cambridge Beaches and take a ride on the Railroad Trail that runs the length of the island. For history buffs and shoppers, Dockyard is just a short bus ride. The beautiful beaches of the South Shore are also a short bus ride away.
