Our stay at the Salt Spray Studio was amazing! This studio is adorable, with everything you need. The private beach is stunning and it is just incredible to know that the perfect aqua blue, crystal clear water of Bermuda is footsteps away from where you’re staying. Although Rexanne and Bob were away during our stay, they were extremely helpful and quick to communicate with us. The location is perfect as well! You can get to and fro Hamilton in about 10 minutes. I would recommend that anybody planning to stay here try to read up on the bus system before you go on your trip. It is the easiest way to get around, but can be a bit confusing if you haven’t read into it at all. I highly recommend the Salt Spray Studio!!!
A home away from home in paradise
We adored staying at the Salt Spray Studio and meeting Rexanne and Rob, who were absolutely lovely! They were both so kind and enthusiastic as they introduced us to our accommodations and gave us tips and pointers as to how best to enjoy the cottage on their beautiful property. Very warm and generous people. Rob led us down to the beach along the short trail beside their homestead and we were amazed at how peaceful and private their secluded cove was. It was a gorgeous spot for a glass of wine at sunset. Kayaks were available, however with the weather being a bit rainy during our stay, we were not able to put them to use. Maybe next time.
The Salt Spray Studio had everything that we needed. Towels, both bath and beach were provided as well as sheets, and the bed was quite comfortable. The kitchen had all the necessary tools and dishes and there are a couple of grocery stores a short scooter ride from the Studio. We made a couple dinners on nights we felt like staying "home". We also made use of the gas grill and a bit of fresh basil from the garden. Truth be told, our dinners at "home" were some of our favorites while in Bermuda.
We found the location to be perfect. Centrally located on the southern shore, we were able to get everywhere we wanted to go pretty quickly on our rented scooter. 10 minutes to Hamilton, 25 minutes to St. George's and 30 minutes to Somerset Village, though we didn't make it that far.
Thank you again Rexanne & Rob for such a lovely stay in your corner of paradise. We hope to see you again someday and explore more of Bermuda, in all reality, we would also love to have some more of that deeelicious rum cake that you left for us. Amazing!

What we wanted but...
The place is what we wanted but not what we expected. Let me explain.
We don't expect much and have had some unexpected surprises with past rental places [both VRBO and its competitors]. Therefore, for us to receive perfection was a huge relief. :)
First, Rexanne had an appointment so her husband Bob was prepared to check us in. Rexanne had provided current phone numbers. Rob was able to redirect the lost taxi driver.
Second, the place was spotless and exactly as pictured. The cake and champagne others mentioned were there.
Third, the dog was an unmentioned surprised. It's really small, but I'm terrified of dogs. Rexanne and Bob kept it away from the studio and arranged for a neighbor to let me take the beach shortcut through his yard so that I could avoid the dog.
Fourth, the kayaks and life jackets met my husband's standards. He's a volunteer river kayak guide and so can be picky.
Fifth, there's a clothes line and outside shower that can be used for wet swimsuits and sand.
Also, they took us grocery shopping the first day, to the bus station to get passes, and regularly checked to see if we needed anything.
All in all, the place was perfect. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
1. If you can't get the AC fan to turn off once the room is cool, the remote opens to reveal a control panel. Yes, we had to ask about that.
2. The notes and brochures contain bus and ferry schedules, maps, beach directions, and a warning about ants. Ants hate soap. Put a little liquid soap on a damp paper towel and run it along the door jams and ant trail across the counter. It'll work like a charm until the next big rain. Then, you simply repeat the procedure.
3. Only 1 bus route passes by their street. It doesn't run on Sunday mornings, so you'll need a taxi for church. It also doesn't run after the work day ends. The next bus routes are a quarter mile away via a 2 lane narrow street with no sidewalks and no where to go when a car comes. Having made that trek multiple times, I don't recommend it. If you can't plan around the times to connect to the other bus routes, then take a taxi to the next bus route's stop. Trust me; we're 2 athletic people who hike a lot and we don't recommend it. Also, the bus stop going away from Hamilton is literally a blue pole about 1 inch off the street. If you're the nervous type, you might want to skip the bus altogether. Otherwise, we found the bus system to be the best option.
Bermuda Paradise Stay
This was an excellent find. The hosts received us late at night with the warmest of welcomes and we were made to feel at home throughout our stay.
The room is cozy and clean. Access to their private beach was a plus as we watched the sunset enjoying a bottle of wine, dipping our feet in the water. We also had our coffee with a water view. Access to Hamilton and Elbow Beach are both about a 10 minute ride. Location was excellent.
I would highly recommend this place.
We can't recommend this place, and its hosts, enough! Perfect location if you want to go fishing, have a private beach to swim and snorkel, and convenient location for getting around the island. The apartment is perfect and comfortable, and Rob and Rexanne were great and so welcoming!
Lia and Patrick thank you so much for your kind review! We enjoyed having you stay at Salt Spray Studio and here's hoping you'll come again!
Easy communication. Cozy apartment close to Hamilton two houses from shoreline. Quiet location. Private. Clean with everything needed. We had outstanding stay.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Salt Spray Studio! Sorry we missed you but hopefully we'll meet again! Thank you :)
