Why Ralph and Julie Richardson chose Sandys
There are very few options for west side ocean front properties. At a half mile from the road, the location is quiet, except for the distant hum of fishing boats passing as they head out to sea and back. As a young couple they spent 10 years with their 4 children as the only family on a 25 Acre Island campsite in Bermuda. They accepted the job as caretakers of a Bermuda Government Campsite so that they could bring up their very young children in a farm environment. The 25 acre island provided that opportunity for 10 years. They often share photos of life on the island as they pass it on their tours. After the island experience, they chose to purchase a house on the waterfront and actually moved via boat to their new home. Their 4 children (oldest is 45) are all out of the house and they are home alone with occasional visits from their kids and one or two of their 10 grandchildren. The lower apartment is just right for a couple. It is not large enough for more than two people. Guests love the spot where they can swim, snorkel or kayak from their own back yard. The Apartment has wifi Cable TV. Full standing refrigerator and a stove with oven. The AC is oversized and provides excellent climate control. The list of other amenities can be found on the amenities page on this website page.

What a beautiful location to enjoy all that Bermuda has to offer. Ralph and Julie are the most kind people you could ever meet and took such good care of our every need. We will never forget them! The views from our studio were just beautiful and our taxi driver, Anthony, took such good care of us. If we ever come back to Bermuda there is no doubt where we would stay.
Everything about our stay at the property and our Bermuda vacation was so wonderful! The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities listed. The waterfront location was so relaxing. We loved having our coffee and breakfast outside each morning, snorkeling the reef right off the property, watching the parrotfish, sea turtles and Bermuda long tails and enjoying a glass of wine while watching the amazing sunsets! Ralph and Julie were gracious hosts. We can’t wait to go back to Bermuda and would certainly stay at the cottage again!
A little piece of paradise
Perfect setting... gorgeous sunsets... lovely hosts... We didn’t want to leave!
It was a pleasure hosting you both at Wrexford. We would be very happy to host you again someday. The grill and sunsets are waiting.
Thanks for your review.
Ralph and Julie
This was our first trip to Bermuda and it couldn't have been any better! We loved the accommodations at Ralph and Julie's place in Sandy's Parrish. Quiet, beautiful location with outstanding sunsets. Enjoyed the short walk to the grocery store and visits with the owners. Friendly if you wanted to be and also had the option of being very private. Would love to go back and it suited us perfectly!!
Hello Madelaine, It was a delight hosting the two of you. Thanks ever so much for taking the time to write a review and your suggestions.
We are glad that you arrived home safely and trust that your trip home was uneventful. Also we hope that the weather has improved there since you left.
All the very best to you both until next time.

Beautiful, quiet, relaxing location
We’ve stayed at a number of VRBO properties in our travels, and Wrexford Cottage was exactly as advertised - an efficient, comfortable apartment in a stunning location. The views from the property were amazing, and Ralph and Julie were gracious hosts. We chose to spend most of our time at the property - kayaking, reading on the lawn overlooking the water, cooking in the well-equipped kitchen, and enjoying the beauty of its location.
The owners recommended Anthony as a taxi driver, and he was a wonderful local tour guide for the days we went out exploring.
We wouldn’t change anything about this experience and look forward to returning to Bermuda and staying at this property again.
Hello Jim and kate,
Thanks for taking time to write a review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the property and the amenities. Julie and I Kayaked the same coast two weeks ago and never tire of this scenic coast line. I enjoyed our chats and we both would love to host you again. All the best to you both - Until next time, Ralph and Julie
An oasis with the best sunsets
My new husband and I LOVED staying here on our honeymoon!! It was so nice to have our own kitchen so we could cook meals. Every night we were back by dusk to watch the gorgeous sunsets from the Adirondack chairs on our lawn. Nothing could have been more beautiful!!!! We also used Ralph and Julie's kayak a few mornings and explored, seeings lots of parrotfish along the way!! Ralph gave us so many good tips about things to see on the island, and everything he suggested was great. It was an easy walk to the grocery store and also to the bus stop. We took the buses everywhere and always felt safe. Loved staying here and can't wait to go back!!!!
