Wonderful Family Vacation!
Stan and Sandra are delightful hosts! They are warm and accommodating. We stayed with our three daughters 22, 19, 13 in the 2 bedroom unit. It was clean and big enough for all of us. The pool area is beautiful, and the home is within walking distance of Somerset Long Bay where we snorkeled with turtles. The house is also a short walk to the bus stop, ATM, grocery store and a few local take out restaurants. We would highly recommend staying at Orchard Manor with the Smith's. The people of Bermuda we encountered during our visit were so friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back!
A Perfect Spot
Our hosts were amazing—always accommodating and friendly. The 2-bedroom unit was perfect for a Bermuda vacation with our 7 year old granddaughter. The accommodation was very clean and neat throughout with sparkling linens and everything we needed for preparing our own breakfasts and lunches. It was very close to the bus stop (and grocery store)—just a few minute walk—so venturing about the island via bus and ferry for dinners and visiting beautiful beaches, the aquarium and zoo, Dockyard, and other places of interest made the need for other forms of transportation unnecessary. We only needed to purchase reasonably priced bus passes once we arrived (which also cover ferry rides) for the many bus and ferry trips we made each day. Our hosts made all the arrangements for pick up and return to the airport with friendly taxi drivers they knew well and who offered a helpful tour along the way. And having an immaculately clean pool right outside our door was a real bonus for us and our granddaughter. Orchard Manor is the ideal location for staying in a quiet area, but with ready access to everything Bermuda has to offer.
Thanks for the great review. We are pleased the accommodations met your every need. Yes, the Poo; has been a plus, especially for the children. Glad you enjoyed your stay at Orchard Manor. We thoroughly enjoyed accommodating you. Consider Orchard Manor in your future travels to Bermuda.
Perfect hosts, beautiful home
My husband and I traveled with our six month old and two year old and stayed here. We had an amazing time! Stan and Sandra were more than accommodating, and our two year was so excited whenever he saw them! On our last night, my husband mentioned he needed to stop at an ATM in the morning, and Sandra immediately offered to take him to an ATM right then and there so we didn’t have to stop in the morning. That’s just one example of how helpful and accommodating they were! Our rooms were clean, the pool area is beautiful, and we enjoyed playing in the front yard to let the kiddos burn off some energy. Stay here! You won’t regret it.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Orchard Manor. It was our pleasure accommodating your family and providing support and assistance where we could. Thanks for the wonderful review and feel free to contact us in future travels to Bermuda.
Just preparing to check out from this piece of heaven. It's been amazing. Stan and sandra treated my daughters, wife and I like family. We even got a taste of stan's birthday cake which was delightful. We had an amazing experience staying here. Quick ride to horseshoe bay and church bay which are both amazing. The property itself is beautiful and perfectly kept. When we come back to bermuda we will always know where home is. Thank you to the Smith's for everything. Godspeed
Thanks for the positive and wonderful comments. We thoroughly enjoyed accommodating your family at Orchard Manor. Also, thanks for sharing your BBQ steak & lamb (delicious) as part of Stan's birthday celebration. More importantly, Sao (our dog) loved his walk to the beach with Sandra and the children. We are pleased you were able to visit various places of interest around Bermuda. Thanks again for choosing our home and you will always be welcome at Orchard Manor.
Best Christmas trip ever. Bermudan hospitality is indescribable!!
This was the most amazing Christmas trip ever. The property was more than we could’ve asked for. Sandra and Stan were even more amazing. We felt like family from the time their friend caralton picked us up from the airport
Thanks for the glowing review. We are pleased that the property met your needs. Also, thanks for joining our family for Christmas Dinner (delicious food and great conversation). We will inform Carlton that you thoroughly enjoyed the Taxi rides from and to the airport. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor and feel free to contact us in the future.
Very clean, and made to feel at home!
We had a wonderful 5 night stay at Orchard Manor - our 5 and 2 year old were delighted with the pool, and the gardens where they could run around. Is a very short walk to the gentle-tide Somerset Long Bay beach, perfect for little ones, and perfect for swimming with turtles! Stan and Sandra were very accommodating and friendly - on hand to answer questions / find things out in the area - made us feel welcome and at home. Would highly recommend!
Thanks for the review. We are pleased that the property met your needs and that you thoroughly enjoyed swimming with the turtles at the nearby beaches. The Pool, Jacuzzi and spacious grounds have been a plus for both the adults and the children. It was a pleasure assisting/supporting and trying to ensure that your stay in Bermuda would be a memorable one. Feel free to consider Orchard Manor in your future travels to Bermuda.
The rental unit is on an acre of property in a tranquil garden setting. Plans have been approved for a swimming pool (34'x 15') which will be completed by March 2015.
