We will take you to the grocery store, and get you acquainted with the bus routes and ferry schedules. so you can start your vacation without hassle or stress. We start your day off well with a great breakfast served under a shady mahogany tree. We provide masks and snorkels, beach towels, and cool bags for your day at the beach, and you can use the kitchen to pack a picnic lunch if you wish.
Ray and Kay Latter purchased this House in 2006
Why Ray and Kay Latter chose Saint George's
As a courtesy to our guests who are staying for 3 nights or more we will meet you at the airport. We will return all guests there at the end of the stay, at no extra charge. Information about this will be sent once booking is confirmed, and we have your flight details. We are ideally placed for exploring the island. A short walk takes you into the charming old capital of St. George's, 1612. The frequent bus services pass the house, to all points of the island. The summer ferry service goes from St. George's to the West End of the island and Hamilton. There are beaches within walking distance, and others just a short bus ride away, or we will drive you there. Restaurants and pubs are a 5 minute walk away, in St. George's.
What makes this House unique
The ferry stop is 5 minutes walk from our door, and in the summer months in 25 minutes, having enjoyed a scenic ocean ride, you are in the heart of the historic Royal Naval Dockyard. A bus leaves every 10-15 minutes from outside the house to other parts of the island. Your hosts will supply you with maps and directions. A five minute walk takes you into World Heritage town of St. Georges established 1612; here you will find pastel coloured houses, restaurants, museums, shops and churches. The summer ferry service from the town will take you to The Royal Naval Dockyard Historical Area. Our home, built in 1904, has a history of its own, and will give you a comfortable introduction to staying in St. George. We are happy to share it with our guests, who seem to love it as much as we do.

Fantastic Trip to Bermuda
This property was perfect for my family during our recent visit to Bermuda. Our hosts provided us with a delicious breakfast each morning and advised on how to best see all of the site on the island. The rooms were very comfortable along with the sitting room with the small fridge and coffee pot.
I stayed here and you won't BELIEVE what happened !!
Have you ever had an unsatisfactory stay? Whether it be pests in the house (ohno), or slow internet speeds (OHNO), there's usually something to complain about. But... I stayed here and you won't BELIEVE that I had no issues at all.

Ray and Kay were truly kind and welcoming from the very start of our stay, allowing us into their home and asking us to treat it like it was our very own as well. They helped us greatly with our stay in Bermuda, offering rides into the town of St. Georges and the airport, as well as recommending great sites to visit on the island.
TLDR: Would definitely recommend staying here :)
Like being home
My wife and I had an exceptional experience. Ray and Kay were absolutely delightful hose. Every morning we were welcomed with a delightful breakfast. They all said when either way to show us around the island. Cannot say enough good about our stay.
A Personal, Up-Close Insiders view of Bermuda
Ray and Kay are delightful hosts. They go above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable, see all the sites that most tourists miss, and share their home like you were long-lost cousins come visiting.
When we arrived, they picked us up at the airport (less than 10 minutes from their home), got us settled, and then took us on a 3 hour tour of their end of Bermuda. They shared the history of Bermuda, nature and beaches, and loads more.
They got us familiar with the bus system (yes...take the bus and skip the mopeds...the drivers are crazy), recommended restaurants, gave us insider tips...and their daily breakfasts on their terrace are spectacular complements of Chef Ray! Blueberry pancakes, omelets, breads, fresh fruit - really delicious.
Highly recommend if you want a home-stay experience with locals who will truly make your stay special.
Loved staying here!
This was my first Bermuda B&B, I’m so glad I stayed at their home. Great directions-which I needed.Charming house & property, bus stop right across the street, entrance to town. Bedroom with good ceiling fan, I kept food in fridge, Great breakfast every AM! Wasn’t hot yet so I was ok without AC.
Thank you for your review,I am glad that we suited your needs.
Amazing accommodations in St. George's Bermuda
Ray and Kay Latter were truly exceptional hosts during our 7 day visit to Bermuda. They patiently responded to all our questions prior to our arrival and they were at the airport to greet us with welcoming smiles and warm hugs. Each morning, we were treated to a delicious breakfast including options such as eggs with bacon and toast, blueberry pancakes, Ray's signature omelette, as well as fruit with yogurt and fresh juice and coffee. They took the time to explain the bus transportation system to us and suggested various bus routes to take so that we could make our way to the attractions that were of interest to us such as the Bermuda zoo and aquarium, Crystal Caves, Horseshoe Bay Beach, and Royal Naval Dockyard. Ray and Kay also took time out of their day to give us a couple of private tours of the St. George's area and gave us a history lesson at the same time. We have since returned to Prince Edward Island Canada but we truly feel as if we have made two new friends during our stay in Bermuda. We would definitely recommend Ray and Kay's bed and breakfast accommodation if you are planning a visit to Bermuda in the near future.
Thank you, Theresa and Richard , for your very warm and positive review. One of the reasons we have a bed and breakfast, as opposed to just a holiday rental unit, is to meet new and interesting people and to help them make the most of their time in Bermuda. If we achieve that, then we are happy. We really enjoyed having you stay with us, and showing you some of the places we love.
A quaint town, the oldest living English settlement in the Americas, with historical sights as well as charming walks and views of the island's eastern coastline. A visit to The World Heritage Center is well worth the small fee which includes an historical informative film and display of our town. St.George's has forts, beaches, small shops, pharmacy, churches, museums and The Bermuda Perfumery with a free tour! There are re-enactments and free walking tours in the town square twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturday, and most days during the summer months. There is a truly wonderful Haunted History Walk which is a must see for visitors. St.George's is full of charm and history as this was our original capital city and the walking tours are wonderful and full of interesting facts about our town. Or you can take a road train tour.
The waters of the harbor and the ocean are crystal clear blue and aqua. Jet skis , canoes, sail boats are all for hire to help you explore the area.
You might want to take a glass bottom boat tour, or sail on a catamaran.
There is excellent snorkeling at nearby Tobacco Bay, as well as food and music. For divers, Bermuda boasts some of the world's best wreck diving if you want more than fish. Our coral reefs are well protected and in excellent health.
Crystal Caves , which are close by, are open to the public, and there are other caves to explore and swim in which are not commercial.
If you enjoy walking, the old railway trail, a grassy path, takes you along low cliffs at the ocean's edge, and there are beach walks aplenty.
Explore some of the many forts around St. George, in a variety of designs they date from the 1600's to World War 11. Fort St. Catherine has excellent displays which are well worth the visit.
St. Peter's church, (now 'Their Majesties Chappelle' by Royal decree of H.M. Queen Elizabeth 11) is the oldest Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere, and people have worshipped on this site since 1609. It is a lovely old church with Bermuda cedar beams and furnishings, and plain glass windows which give it a very different 'feel' to most churches.
From the waterfront a ferry takes a scenic 40 minute route to the Royal Naval Dockyard in the west of the island.
The Dockyard holds the National Museum, shops, restaurants and a glass blower, among many other attractions, all in a setting of one of the strongest British forts of the 1800s.
Hamilton, our capital, has shopping, a fine Art Gallery, the Cathedral, and Fort Hamilton (overlooking the town) in addition to many varied dining experiences and shopping.
St. George and Bermuda have much to offer a vacationer, whether you want to be active or stay quietly on a beach under an umbrella.
Ask us about some other local walks, to caves where you can swim! Or try cliff jumping into the blue waters,ocean side walks along the old railway trail, or hunt for sea glass. We know the best snorkeling spots, little known beaches, and best spots to view the sunset.
We are your personal concierges!
