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
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.
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!
We've just returned home to cold & snowy Canada after two wonderful weeks at Rock Sound in Bermuda.
This is by far the best VRBO property we've stayed at so far.
Donna & Chris are lovely folks. Very welcoming & went above & beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed. Many thanks to you both.
Bermuda is a stunning gem. Gorgeous beaches & great restaurants - all within walking distance of the apartment. Polite & friendly people everywhere you go.
Book this property with complete confidence. You will definitely not be disappointed.
It was all we hoped for and more! Walked to horseshoe bay, church bay, had dinner across the street at the Reefs hotel a few nights, bus stops right near the house, port royal golf a quick taxi ride away...what more can I say???!!!!! Location is fantastic and the owners were lovely and very thoughtful. Had bus passes and a bottle of wine waiting for us, they were available if we needed them but never intrusive. Highest recommendation!! You won't regret it. We will be back again!
I surprised my husband with a getaway. I was looking for something within a couple hour flight. I happened upon Rock Sound. We were in luck, they had a cancellation. Donna was fanatic to deal with. She offered to buy groceries, make dinner reservations, buy a bus pass and set up a taxi at the airport. Dave met us at the airport. He was great. Very knowledgeable about Bermuda.
We arrived at Rock Sound. It was everything we were looking for in a vacation rental. The bowl of fruit and wine was a nice surprise. Very clean, the bed was comfortable, shower had hot water with good pressure and a nice kitchen. The ac worked well. There is a lovely pool with an incredible view. Plenty of towels and beach chairs and umbrella.
After we got settled we set off to Horseshoe Bay. It is about a mile from the house. We spent a few hours there and walked back to get ready for dinner. Donna made reservation for us at the Lighthouse for dinner. We walked there. We ate outside and the view was unbelievable. The food was great. A very relaxing experience. The next day we were off to sea glass beach, admiralty house and than to Tabacco Bay Beach. We loved Tabacco Bay Beach. Ate lunch there and stayed for the most incredible sun set I have ever seen. The next morning we rented a scooter and went beach hopping. First to Elbow Beach, than Warick Long Bay, to Horseshoe and finally Church Bay. We ended up walking to Henry VIII for dinner.
There is a bus stop at the end of the driveway and scooter rentals the next street over. We throughly enjoyed ourselves. My only regret we couldn't stay longer.
Thank you Donna and Chris for such a great place to stay. We will be back.
My wife and I recently stayed at the apartment for about a week and loved it! It's perfect for a couple like us celebrating a wedding anniversary. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Donna respected our privacy and does not drop by uninvited at all, which I especially appreciated. She was also very helpful providing information before and after we arrived. The location is ideal, across from the Reefs Hotel, near Church Bay (best snorkeling of all time), and on high ground with an awesome view of the ocean. We'll definitely be back! - Greg & Michelle
Our recent stay at Rock Sound could not have been better! Donna and Chris were very helpful and accommodating before and during our visit. The apartment was spotless and fully equipped - I really can't think of a thing that wasn't provided. As other reviewers have mentioned the location was wonderful!! There are plenty of places nearby for food and drink and a short 20 minute stroll will get you to Horseshoe Beach. If you don't care to walk the bus is very handy to get you anywhere on the island. Thank you Donna and Chris - we hope to make a return visit someday!
Stayed here for 6 nights in early May and even though we had 2 rainy days it did not spoil our stay in this lovely studio. Donna was really helpful before and during our stay, and it was great that she arranged to get bus passes and grocery supplies to save our time and effort on arrival.The studio is comfortable and spacious and close (but not too close to south shore rd) so no traffic noise. It also has great views. Church Bay is beautiful, and only 10mins easy walk away. Lots of restaurants nearby, (and Reefs Hotel is literally just across the road! (great cocktails!!) plus the Railway trail and the amazing views from Gibbs Hill lighthouse and all really close by. The studio is completely self contained from the main house and very private. This is a fantastic base to explore this gorgeous island, once the weather improved we visited most of the local beaches including lovely Horseshoe bay and Warwick Long Bay. Definitely recommend this place, and Bermuda. Thanks again Donna.
