Welcome to Rosamundi, a traditional Berumudian cottage home nestled between two acres of tropical gardens and picturesque waterfront views. Situated on a private, residential island near Hamilton, our home is accessible only by boat or public ferry. For decades the property has welcomed family and friends seeking serenity, inspiration, and a breath of fresh air from day-to-day living, and we look forward to sharing this special experience with you.
With exceptional views of Hamilton Harbor and the Great Sound, landscaped lawns, and lush natural habitat, Rosamundi is a pastoral retreat in a Bermudian paradise. It is a well-loved, well-kept home offering an island life experience. The property features a seaside dinning area ideal for sunset cocktails and BBQs; a private dock for fishing; and two private beaches (one rocky, one sandy) for swimming, snorkeling, and relaxed contemplation.
When snorkeling, you will see the best of Bermudian sea life, including coral reefs, turtles, parrot fish, hogfish, conches, cow fish, eels, lobsters, an occasional ray, and other beautiful aquatic animals.
This listing is for the main section of the house, which includes exclusive access to a full cottage-style kitchen, family dining area, 1.5 baths, two bedrooms facing the harbor with seaside views, and a covered garden terrace off the kitchen. On the property, guests will also have full access to the dock, beach, seaside terrace and gardens.
Interaction with guests
Rosamundi is maintained year-round by a lovely housesitting couple who live in the guest extension of the main house. They are available for your check-in/check-out and for further questions during your stay.
Other things to note
-Rosamundi is set in a tropical atmosphere and situated in a natural island habitat. This ensures classic experiences of island living; such as wildlife on the property where you may see Bermuda skinks [very small lizards], tropical and common birds, and possibly a neighboring chicken, for example. Overall, you are truly immersed in a natural island and surrounding nature.
- As Rosamundi is a traditional Bermudian cottage home, it is not equipped with central heating nor air conditioning. However, the home is equipped with new standing fans that circulate the air very well. Most guests enjoy leaving the windows open for refreshing sea breeze, and in the evening, air temperatures are often low and comfortable for sleeping with or without use of a fan.
- When you arrive at Hinson's island by public ferry, please be prepared to carry your luggage up a short incline as you ascend the groomed walking path to Rosamundi. You may want to pack with this short but necessary walk in mind.
- For convenience, we offer grocery delivery to the island prior to or during the guest's stay for a $75 USD fee. Grocers are otherwise on the main island and available by public transportation.
- The family who owns Rosamundi is working to renovate parts of the property in between guest stays. No renovations occur during guest stays to ensure a seamless experience for those who are visiting.
