The Hughes were gracious hosts. Jack was a treat, and the property was just as presented in the offering. Alan could not have been more helpful in getting us oriented, seeing us through buying groceries and arranging for transportation, as well as checking with us each day to make sure all was going well. We had a delightful time, and would not hesitate to recommend their property.
Great hosts and property
Alan was a splendid host, unobtrusive but always available for assistance. Everyday, when I came out on the patio for breakfast, he would greet me cheerfully , and review my plans for the day. Once, he drove me to Elbow Beach, where I obtained a hotel day pass. He also picked up some supplies that I needed, and drove me to the airport for my flight home. He is a horticulturist with a background in hotel services and it shows.
Upon arrival, he will orient you to the area and take you to a local market, if you want groceries
The studio itself is carefully designed,, and has a separate room with plenty of close space, The bed is large and very comfortable. I slept exceedingly well. There is also a new, high end gas grill on the patio for your use.
The #3 bus to Hamilton, is 1 block away, down a hill. The trip takes 20 minutes. From there you can connect to the #7 to all the major beaches. The #10 and #11, arrive more frequently, and are in charming Flatt's Village, a 10 minute walk away. This makes the location very convenient, if you choose to use public transportation
I hope to return, in future..
Centraly Located, Great Host
We greatly enjoyed our stay at this place. It was clean, queen bed comfortable, A/C, nice little kitchen, perfect for our stay. Central located on the island, near the Aquarium. Our hosts Alan and Anita made us feel right at home! Took us to pick up a few groceries on the first day and our bus/ferry pass for the week. We ate breakfast in and lunch/dinner out while seeing the island. Jack their dog greeted us each morning and Alan treated us to a dark and stormy drink in the evening, wonderful! We would highly recommend this rental to others and we have already:)
This stay was far beyond any and all expectations- from our arrival we were welcomed by Alan and Jack (ball in mouth and tail wagging happily), oriented to our beautiful little home for the week with a dark and stormy in hand (quickly to mouth :), then we were shuttled by Alan to get groceries. That evening we cooked fresh Wahoo on the grill and added freshly grown arugula, from Anita’s gorgeous garden, to our salad. Alan provided us with a thorough instruction in the public transportation system which had stops close by. He suggested the best sites for us to see- even took us on a couple of drives around the Island to see some of the Island’s beauty, off the beaten path. We walked to the Flats for 2 meals at Rustica, hung out at the bridge watching the flurry of fish from every color of the rainbow - snorkeled at the beach, played golf, sat on the dock, walked in the parks. Alan, Anita and Jack were the best, most hospitable folks- with a true gift for making one feel welcome -so sorry we had to leave so soon!! If ever we go back, no- when we go back, we will definitely book this location if given the opportunity!!! See you again my friend! Kelly and Shane
Above and beyond
This is a hidden gem! It’s centrally located and very close to several bus stops that take you all over the island. Much of the 5 star rating goes to Alan, the property owner! He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Our flight coming in was delayed so we had a very late checkin. He waited up and had beer, a snack and a hearty breakfast for the next morning. Next morning He took us grocery shopping and gave us a little tour of the island and to the bus office to purchase our weekly pass. The unit is comfortable, cozy and the added bonus is Jack, Alan and Anita’s dog. That little guy is adorable and friendly. All in all our stay was over the top AMAZING!!
My husband and I went to Bermuda for our babymoon and couldn’t be more pleased with this house.
Alan, the home owner, waited up the night we arrived and had wine, beer and cheese for us ... not to mention coffee in our room , yogurt and scones for the next morning.
This place is perfect, centrally located if you want to explore the whole island. We rented a scooter, and Alan was nice enough to take us to pick it up and drive us to grocery store the next morning.
The room has everything you need. Plenty of towels, beach towels and very clean.
It’s walking distance to restaurants and the aquarium. Bus stop to Hamilton is a five minute walk.
Alan’s inviting and friendly nature really made us feel like it was home away from home!
