I just wanted to thank both of you for your generosity with sharing your time and your home with us. We had the best vacation we had ever had. Just an FYI, my friend that works for the Ole Miss Athletic department made me run the football stadium stairs to prepare for our next kayak trip. So let Fred know that I really will attempt to keep up with both of you. Thank you all again.

Sweet owner, close to the best beach on South Shore

  • 5 of 5
The unit owner and the hostess Desiree are the sweetest people in the world.

The room has a gorgeous sunrise view and a fully functioning kitchen, with a large bathroom.

The apartment is in a very quiet and nice residential area, away from tourists. It’s a short walk to Whale Bay beach, which is stunning.

This property was perfect for my husband and I. The owners had fresh fruit, water, and wine waiting for us. The unit is very well kept. It was a very quick walk to the beach, Whale Bay, which was absolutely amazing. Convenient to bus routes too!!! We can't wait to go back soon! :)

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Bermuda was one of our best vacations. We chose to stay here and we were glad we did. We had everything we needed to make us feel at home. We had our own TV and DVD as well as a great view of the island. There are golf courses nearby and we had no trouble getting around the island since our place is right on the bus route. We were near the beach and we were able to do as much or as little as we desired. We enjoyed having the option to either dine in or eat out. Our hosts were both friendly and accommodating making sure everything was just perfect during our stay. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and they offered great suggestions about activities that were available around the island. Our stay was problem free. All we had to do was relax and enjoy our home away from home. We are definitely going to come back to Bermuda and when we do, we will be staying here again and again!

Great choice for a vacation in Bermuda

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Bermuda and a large reason was our stay at the Borden's property. The accommodations were just as they was advertised and the hospitality was second to none. The rooms were immaculate and the customer service was great. We had as much privacy as we desired and we especially enjoyed having breakfast on our own private balcony which commanded a beautiful view of the ocean. We were also three minutes from the bus stop which allowed us to explore and enjoy the rest of the island. We were able to enjoy activities at Dockyard as well as Hamilton. We were even able to travel to St. David's and St. Georges. There are also a large number of restaurants nearby. We would definitely recommend staying here. We have already told many of our relatives about the wonderful time we had in Bermuda as well as the wonderful accommodations. We plan to make this our base of operations every time we come to Bermuda.

Hospitality Defined

  • 5 of 5
We could not have enjoyed our stay more at Mr. & Mrs. Borden's studio. After being delayed due to travel woes we were greeted late in the evening with warmth and gratitude which immediately put us at ease after a long two days of airports. They even provided us with a bottle of champagne with fresh baked muffins and a bowl of fresh fruit!

The studio apartment was immaculate, spacious and equipped with everything we would need to enjoy our stay:

The Kitchen had dishes, two burner stove, fridge, utensils, pots & pans for cooking most anything you could think of. You probably won't be cooking a 15 course meal for 30 people, but there is plenty for two people to have what they need to enjoy staying in if that is your desire. There are also two very large closets in the kitchen including hangers and an armoire to house your clothes and suitcases.

The bedroom has a queen sized bed and small sitting table for two. There is a TV w/ satellite TV (a nice plus for this New England Native was that NESN was available to watch the Bruin's playoff game!) as well as a DVD player w/ a wide variety of DVDs to choose from.

The bathroom was very large and clean with his / her sinks and a full sized bath / shower with plenty of towels for the shower (bring your own for the beach!)

The location is great - right on Middle Road near Whale bay and off the Railway Trail. There is a bus stop right at the end of their drive on the Route 7 & 8 Bus line which gives easy access to the Dockyard (25 minutes) and to Hamilton (25 minutes) and beyond. It is about 40 minutes from the airport by cab (roughly a $55 fare). Whale Bay is less than a 10 minute walk away which is a small park w/ swimming access and exploring and is devoid of the crowds of larger beaches which almost makes it feel like your own private beach. There is also a nature preserve close by to go exploring.

Bottom Line: This location is a little out of the way in terms of being right on top of the action of Hamilton, St. Georges, etc. But if you are looking for a quiet spot with easy access to everything that Bermuda has to offer you can't go wrong. Add to that the incredible warmth and hospitality of the Borden's who made sure every detail was perfect and that our needs were met and expectations exceeded, you cannot go wrong.

We would stay here again over and over again and look forward to coming back!
