Delightful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this wonderful unit right in the charming village of Somerset out in the west end of the island. For a family of 4 there is plenty of room and very easy access to transportation (ferry and bus).

Inside, the unit is bright and airy fitted out with anything you'd need for either a two day or two week stay.

The first floor balcony affords stunning views over the Great Sound to the North Shore of the island. Both upstairs bedrooms look out to this view also. All rooms do, in fact!

There is a BBQ grill available for guest use and dock area down by the water. Ideal for swimming, sunbathing, kayaking etc. The kids just spent many an hour just jumping in the water.

We made extensive use of the private beach on the adjacent property.

All in all, a great spot in a great area, in a great country!

Perfection on the Great Sound

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful time in Bermuda thanks to Christine and her fabulous rental accommodations. The place was clean and laid out perfectly for our week long visit. The bus stop is very close by and the dock and beach areas were great for snorkeling. We even took out their small kayak and toured around kings islands and mangrove bay, sighting green sea turtles aplenty along the way. Sunrise view from watford studio 2 was remarkable every single day and I got some really great time lapse videos of it. Sunset was really spectacular from the beach side. Our hosts were welcoming and warm, giving us good recommendations for dining out and transportation. We are looking forward to visiting the islands again and staying here.

It is particularly appreciated as my family was actually on holiday during your stay, and I was quite worried that things would not run smoothly. I am so glad to know that they did, and I look forward to meeting you personally on your return trip!

Watford Studios Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

Christine and Allen were outstanding hosts. The Rental was just perfect for the four of us. The location was great with bus stops within steps from our door, the Ferry stop equally as close.

We enjoyed Salt Rock Grill, Tio Pepe's, Cafe Amici, The Breezes, The Swizzle Inn, Hog Penny Pub, Flannagan's and The Frog and Onion for meals among others.

We enjoyed drinks at the Watford Sports Club in the evenings as well as our own balcony and dock.

The Aquarium/Zoo and Crystal/Fantasy Caves are great spots to check out and we loved Gibbs Lighthouse. We pieced the Railway Trail together and trekked all over the Island.

Eddie was a great Taxi Driver and very accomodating.

We can't say enough about the week we had at Watford. Thank you, Christine for everything!

Wonderful Family Vacation Choice

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend Watford Suites to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, convenient location on Bermuda's western side. It was such a luxury to have all the space both indoors and out. My kids loved swimming from the dock, my husband enjoyed cooking on the grill, and I loved sitting on the second floor balcony watching all the activity on the Great Sound. The beach across the street is more of an exploring beach than a swimming beach. We did see interesting corals, sea slugs, lobster, and fish.

The bus stop is just a house away and getting to the ferry at Dockyard takes about 15 minutes. There are a couple of good restaurants withing walking distance; we ate all breakfasts and most dinners at the house, be we did go to the Somerset Squire twice for dinner. The grocery store is not within walking distance so you'll need a scooter or a bus ride for that.

The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It was very humid when we were there so we used the air conditioners in the bedrooms, and sometimes downstairs too. There are some narrow stairs with a landing up to the bedrooms and bathroom, so the house isn't good for people with difficulty climbing stairs.

Our hosts, Christine and Alan, were extremely helpful, even drove us to Dockyard to get scooters. We got very good advice on where to rent a boat and where to snorkel.

The only thing that could make this better would be a second bathroom on the first floor. That's not a major complaint, just recognize that there is only 1 bathroom for 4 people. The photos with the listing are very accurate and look just like the photos I took.

The whole family was very happy here.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (including two preteens) recently stayed at Watford Studios and had a absolutely wonderful time. The location was beautiful (pictures don't do it justice) - right on the water- and the cottage layout was great with plenty of room for everyone. The close proximity to public transportation (bus/ferry) was a huge plus. Our daughters enjoyed fishing off of the ferry dock while I was able to watch and relax from the comfort of the cottage's balconies. My husband and daughter also enjoyed snorkeling at the private beach and in front of the cottage. The owners were very informative and always available for questions. We would strongly recommend this location to others.
