Loved it, loved it, loved it!

We recently stayed in the Exim RSVP apartment in Somerset. Last year we stayed in the first Exim Apartment – both are very nice, and you will not find nicer hosts than Cathy & Jody, or a better value in Bermuda. The first Exim Apartment is a bit more elegant in feel while the RSVP apartment has a beachy vibe. The view from the sitting room in RSVP is amazing (the same view you get from the balcony in either apartment) -- we ate breakfast and a few takeout dinners there. Our understanding is that Cathy & Jody plan to add a small takeout restaurant and landscape the area next to the building -- can't wait to see it!

The Dockyard is about a 2 mile walk – our favorite restaurants there are Café Amici and the Frog and Onion. We also like to walk around Somerset/Daniel's Head. We even walked to Horseshoe Bay one morning, which is about 7 miles – you can get most of the way there on the railway trail. We also walked to Hog Bay Park, which is an interesting place. For those of you who are not walkers, the buses and ferries are frequent, reliable, and clean. We recommend that you get bus/ferry passes whether you walk or not, so you can visit Hamilton, St. Georges, etc.

In the Somerset area, within about a half mile walk or a short bus ride from Exim, there are several great takeout restaurants: Green Lite, Misty's Takeout, the Village Café, and a new one we didn't get to try, Gloria's Kitchen (in a yellow building on the water, on the right just after the Watford Bridge). Woody's is also a takeout restaurant with tables outside and several bars. They have the best fish and fishcake sandwiches on the island! The Country Squire across the street has a great outdoor bar – we met several friendly and interesting local people there.

We hope you get the chance to visit Bermuda and enjoy the local experience at Exim!

Comfortable apartment in a lovely location.

  • 4 of 5
This property is located across from a quiet, picturesque harbor, within walking distance to a quiet beach, and very near bus stops, allowing you to go anywhere you would like on the island. The apartment is clean and fresh, with a comfortable bed, excellent shower, everything you need to make simple meals, a balcony overlooking thel harbor, and an additional sitting room with a huge window that also overlooks the harbor. Jody is a gracious and available host, and will help you get the most out of your vacation. He picked up bus passes for us before we arrived, since we were arriving during a holiday and would not be able to purchase them ourselves. He also arranged our transportation to and from the airport. There is a grocery store a short bus ride or walk away where you can get provisions. We enjoyed a typical Bermudian Sunday breakfast of cod, potatoes, banana, avocado and sauces at Woody's which is also easily reachable by bus, or a little longer walk (perhaps a mile or less). You can hear road noise in the apartment, which we were not at all bothered by. Having a full apartment with a kitchen made our stay more affordable and comfortable. Bermuda may be one of the most lovely places on earth. It certainly is populated by the most lovely people.

Spacious, clean, friendly and totally up to date accomodations with a king bed and an incredible bathroom, that's a Smash Hit!
We had a swell time at the EXIM apartment in Somerset village in July. It is nicely situated where you can look out the window or sit on the patio and gaze at azure blue water and boats of Mangrove Bay. There is the bus stop just outside and some shops right down the street. I loved how we were able to walk the the Cambridge Beaches for dinner and their light entertainment. We also rented our scooter there so it was simple to come and go.
Our host Jody and his buddy Robert were both fun to talk with and were helpful in every way. Our booking with Cathy was simple, honest and complete.
I loved our stay in Bermuda and we definetly made the right choice with the EXIM apartment. You will not be dissapointed in the accomodations, they are more than I expected and a priced well, leaving you money for enjoying all of Bermuda.

Excellent accomodations in Somerset Bermuda

  • 5 of 5
This modern apartment was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. Full kitchen, lovely bath and a little sitting room looking out over Mangrove Bay. It was close to stores, pub, post office and bus stop, very convenient. We recommend this and would be comfortable staying there for weeks.

Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I spent a week in Bermuda (May 2014) and were the first to stay in Jody/Cathy's newly remodeled condo. The condo was clean, all brand new appliances, and clean/new bed linens and bathroom towels (which were a lot nicer than my towels at home!)

The location was great on the west side of the island. Within walking distance we rented a scooter at cambridge resort which was a great way to get around. We also took advantage of the post office (where you buy bus tix) and bus stop right across the street. The bus is the main way to get around which was convenient but we LOVED driving the scooter around all week as well! We had lovely nightly drinks on the balcony in the super comfy chairs looking over Mangrove Bay.

Customer Service:
This was the best customer service we have ever experienced! Jody/Cathy are two of the nicest and hardest working people we met and their hospitality was unmatched! From paying/organizing our ride from the airport, dropping by some Bermuda banana bread, letting us use their driveway, lending us their cooler (which we took out when we rented a boston whaler boat - A MUST DO!), reserving dinner reservations for us, to always being available (as their shop is right downstairs) to answer any questions or just helping make sure we were having a great vacation!

Thank you Jody/Cathy for making our trip the most memorable in your great place!

From the Owner

Sandys is the western most Parish or a county of Bermuda. It's named after Sir Edwin Sandys who made large investments to colonize the parish in early 1600s. The parish name is pronounced as 'Sands'. Sandys has five islands that are joined by bridges. The islands are Ireland Island North, Ireland Island South, Boaz Island, Watford Island and the biggest of all, Somerset Island. The Royal Naval Dockyard where most of the cruise ships anchor, is located at Ireland Island North. Being farthest from the congested Hamilton City, the parish provides refreshing piece and serenity that are quickly disappearing in tourist populated Bermuda.

Sandys Beaches and Parks

Hog Bay Beach: This secluded beach is a hidden treasure. Not many know about this beach - one of the most exclusive Bermuda beaches.

Daniel's Head Park & Beach: Daniels Head spans across about 17 acres of coastal area. There are several beaches here, but only one has remained as a public beach. Others are privately owned by hotels. It's a great secluded beach and close to the dockyard. There are couple of operators at the public beach who offer excellent kayaks, snorkel and other watersports.

Hog Bay Park: Hog Bay Park is a 32 acres of unspoiled forest land and one of the new national parks of Bermuda.

Somerset Long Bay Beach and Park: It's a beautiful secluded beach in the western Sandys parish. There is also an adjacent park.

Snorkel Park: Located at Sandys parish, this beach is a great place for families and kids. This is also one of the great Bermuda beaches for snorkeling.

Ely's Harbor Bermuda: This is a picturesque harbor. It'll be on your left as you cross the Somerset Bridge which connects Bermuda's main island to Somerset Island. You can get there via Middle Road, west of Somerset Bridge.

Parson's Bay: This is a nice sheltered beach in Sandy's Bermuda and is quite popular with the locals particularly as a picnic spot. However the beach with its beautiful white strip of sand usually remains quiet most of the time. But there is no bus or ferry stop nearby. You will need to take your scooter or cycle to reach Parson's Bay. It is in Ireland Island and on the Lagoon road just before it becomes Craddock Road. The area is known as Lagoon Park.

Lagoon Park: A scenic park area named for the lagoon or the backwater having surrounding mangroves. It's a lovely place to relax and have a picnic. There are picnic tables in the park. With grassy lawns and adjoining coastline along the Great Sound, it has a scenic setting. The park is also a habitat for birds of different kinds. You will also see Easter lilies during Easter time. There is an adjacent valley area having the 19th century Royal Naval Cemetery. It has graves of many Royal Navy officers many of who died out of yellow fever. To reach the park from the dockyard, come south and cross the narrow Grey’s Bridge. Lagoon park is located at Ireland Island (South) in Sandys. The park is open from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

Black Bay Beach: There are several small beautiful public beaches that are usually more enjoyable during the low tides. In high tides, they tend to disappear. The beaches here are shallow and great for swimming. Black Bay is located on the northern side of Malabar Road in Ireland Island (South) and opposite to the Royal Naval Cemetery. Bus routes #7 and 8 stop at the Cemetery from where you can walk down to the beach.

Callaghan Bay: This is a nice beautiful beach just off the Somerset Road and at the beginning of West Side road. Bus #7 and #8 both stop here.

Sandys Bermuda Attractions

Easy Access!!! Buses and Ferries for Sandys Bermuda Bus routes #7 and #8 connect Hamilton City and Sandys. Bus #8 is more frequent than #7 and takes the Middle Road in Sandys through teh urban areas, while bus#7 takes mainly the scenic South Road. There are some buses that terminate at Barnes Corner in Southampton and do not go all the way up to the Dockyard. Barnes Corner is where the Middle road and the South road meet. There are several ferry stops in Sandys that serve Hamilton City. 1) At the Dockyard - Few Bus Stops from EXIM Guest Apartment 2) At Watford Bridge - Walking distance from EXIM Guest Apartment 3) At Cavello Bay - Walking distance from EXIm Guest Apartment. This is located in Somerset island and is a lovely place. Buses won't go all the way. To reach the ferry stop, take Somerset Road, then Sound View Road and then Scott's Hill Road and go right up to the end. 4) At Somerset Bridge Wharf.
