My husband and I loved staying here and can't wait until we can do it again. Reserving was a breeze and fast friendly responses to any questions. As for the rental itself..it was perfect. Beautiful water view and a quick walk down the hill to shops and great restaurants. Super easy to hop on the pink busses as well. We purchased our transportation pass at the post office and felt like pros in no time! Tobacco Bay beach is an easy 20 minute walk. When we weren't off exploring or eating we enjoyed the outdoor area soaking up the sun and enjoying the view. This rental has everything you need!! Can't wait to stay again!!!!!

Love it

  • 4 of 5

Great place. Stacey checked on us on the day we arrived and later bought us item we needed. Saw her around town and she always checked to see if we need anything. Place was great for our 5th anniversary. We went all over Bermuda. Recommend getting bus pass. Bus was great for us and we met the locals. See more that way also.

Great location and ...oh...that view!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in the town of St. George on a small hill, with an absolutely amazing view of the waters. Its best feature for us was its walk-ability to the town (less than 5 minutes), and a network of back-country paths leading to the famed Tobacco Bay beach and Fort St. Catherine's beach. Also, the paths lead to the Railway Road Trail which we did one afternoon, walking for about 1+ hour one way to the western tip of St. George.

The apartment is very well stocked with everything you would need for your stay, recently updated mostly from IKEA, and serves well for a couple and small kids (like us). The pull-out sofa was for the children and we had the bedroom. We will definitely hope to stay at this place again if it is available. The only one downside is that there is a tall cell-phone transmitter/receiver tower at the top of the hill, but for a short stay, it didn't bother us. We found our stay very relaxing, exactly what we were looking for. Thank you again Stacey and Faith!

good location and good view

  • 4 of 5

Nice little apartment in good location for St George'e amenities. Lovely patio to sit out on with view of the harbour. Someone was staying in the upstairs apartment and it is loud, there was just 1 person up there for some of our stay but I guess the sound is amplified, perhaps by a think ceiling. We never met the owners, they never checked if the apartment was OK for any of our stay - all was OK though, apart from noise from upstairs.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the apartment and the lovely view. We try to meet everyone that stays in our rentals, but with 9 properties and busy schedules in the summer time this isn't always possible. We are sorry we didn't get to meet you. Sorry about the noise as well, the Bermuda stone lets sounds travel easily, usually our guests are more concerning. We hope to you choose us for your next Bermuda vacation and we will be sure to meet you! Thank you again for staying with us and for your feedback. Stacey Manager

Wonderful apartment, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely awesome time in Bermuda. We have always cruised there before and I am so glad we rented Faith's apartment this time. The apartment was clean and comfortable; it had plenty of space for my husband, my 2 kids and myself. My kids enjoyed the array of movie dvds at night when we relaxed after a day of sightseeing and swimming. Tobacco Beach is about a 20 minute walk; we went there almost every day. Our favorite restaurant was Tavern by the Sea. The bus is only a couple of minutes away. My daughter and I went to Dolphin Quest at the Dockyard; my husband and son went scuba diving at Somerset Bridge and with the company next to Grotto Bay. I strongly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Bermuda.

Cozy, Welcoming, Private and Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

I'll start off by saying that this place definitely delivered on what it promised! The pictures, layout and descriptions were 100% accurate and we were very pleasantly surprised upon our arrival!

The location is about a 5 min walk to downtown St. Georges (including groceries, bars/restaurants and other amenities) and only about a 10-15 min walk (very scenic) to the nearest beautiful beach - Tobacco Bay.

The apartment was well equipped for both outdoor and indoor enjoyment (i.e. board games, Nintendo Wii, DVD's etc.) and the layout was perfect for 3 people (a couple and one extra).

Our favorite place about it was definitely the view of the bay. We cooked delicious breakfasts (to save some money), brewed coffee and ate it all at a sturdy patio furniture set up overlooking the bay. There are also 2 lounge chairs on the grassy area that are perfect for enjoying a good book, a drink or a cigar!

It turned out that we were also located right amongst other popular places where all of our friends were staying and coincidentally we were all within a 2-5 minute walking distance.

Overall we were absolutely recommend this place to our friends and family and I think it's worth noting that many of our friends had the consensus that our place was by far the best view, location and layout!

On a constructive note, the kitchen could do with a couple more choice pans/pots/baking sheet(s) as well as perhaps slightly more cooking utensils (i.e. spatula, egg whisk etc.) but these are very minor and personal suggestions.

An absolutely excellent spot for couples/friends of all ages, budgets and otherwise!

Thanks!
