About Chris and Donna
We are a husband and wife who were both involved in the hotel industry in Bermuda for over 20 years. We want you to be our guests and get to know the island we love so much.
Chris and Donna purchased this Studio in 2011
Why Chris and Donna chose Southampton
We bought Rock Sound in 2011 after looking at dozens of homes. As soon as we saw Rock Sound we fell in love with it as it is in a wonderful neighbourhood with amazing views and lots to do nearby.
What makes this Studio unique
Rock Sound is literally across the road from the famous Reefs Hotel with its restaurants, bars, beach and spa. Within a mile is the Fairmont Southampton hotel with numerous restaurants, beach, bars, water sports, tennis and golf. But what really makes this a special place to stay is the proximity of beaches, restaurants, Gibbs Hill lighthouse and public transportation. You could not find a place to stay with all of this without paying hotel resort costs!

Ideal location and studio apartment for us
We loved so much about this apartment. Here are some of the best 'selling points'. 1. Location: it it about a 25 minute bus ride to Hamilton and also to Dockyard 2. Location: You can hear the ocean waves from the apartment 3. Location: At the end of the (steep) driveway is the bus line. 4.Location: Close to two wonderful beaches, Church Bay and Horseshoe Bay. Other than location, location, location, we also were so grateful to Donna for going above and beyond for us: having a taxi waiting at the airport, purchasing a few grocery items ahead of time as well as buying bus passes for us. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and we would not hesitate to rent again or recommend this place to others.
Relaxing Stay with Amazing Ocean View
We spent 1 week at Chris and Donna's studio apartment. It is located close to The Reef's Resort which conveniently has it's own bus stops on the #7 line. The studio is large, clean, and had everything we needed during our stay. The stove, refrigerator, microwave, washer, and dryer were great amenities that we took full advantage of. The studio is located within walking distance of Church Bay, Horseshoe Bay, and Gibbs Lighthouse. The view at the studio is absolutely amazing. In the morning, we watched the sun come up over the ocean from the bed and in the afternoon we were able to watch a stunning sunset from the pool. Chris and Donna welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine and fresh fruit (we loved the passion fruit). The studio is a 30 minute bus ride to Dockyard and Hamilton on the #7 bus, which made traveling the island very convenient. The apartment was everything we needed and really made our stay enjoyable.
Perfect spot to stay in Bermuda.
Ready to return.
Rock Sound was the perfect spot for our honeymoon in Bermuda. In fact, we’re sitting in the ATL Airport talking about our return! The studio apartment was well-appointed, in a beautiful location on the beachy South shore, and within walking distance to a delicious dinner at the Reef’s Coconuts. The poolside is perfect to watch the sun set into the ocean. Though we rented cycles from the legendary Mrs. T at Elbow Beach Cycles (she will pick you up!), with the Reef’s across the street, the bus lands near the base of the driveway. We ate breakfast just outside of the studio every day and grilled a few dinners ourselves. Donna and Chris were so kind and set us up perfectly- their preferred taxi driver Shawn (so friendly and helpful) picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and their German Shepherd, sweet Zoro, let us know when someone was coming up the driveway to see us! We will be back ASAP! Thanks D&C!
Great place, great value, great location!!!
This place was great! The room was well kept, all supplies were available as needed, being able to use the pool was wonderful. Bus stop was right at bottom of driveway, so convenient! Chris and Donna were great hosts! Would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!
Great location and hostess
Apartment was larger than it appeared online, kitchen was well equipped, pool was fabulous and the location was great! Easy to get to both ends of the island and well-known beaches/attractions by bus. Donna made sure we had everything we needed for a trouble-free stay. She made sure it was easy for us to get to/from the airport and had all the info we needed to plan activities during the week.
The apartment is located on the South Shore Road over looking the ocean. Major bus route (#7 bus stop at the end of the driveway). Two resort hotels within walking distance with 2 spas, golf, 9 restaurants, water sports, etc. Moped rental available within 100 meters at The Reefs. Church Bay beach 500 meters away, Horseshoe Bay beach 1 mile away. A second detached large bedroom/sitting room/bathroom is also available with a private entrance/porch and can be rented as a second bedroom to the studio.
