Wonderful Hosts

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at Wendell and Xinia's home for our 10th visit to Bermuda. They were wonderful in picking us up from the airport and stopping at a gas station store for some quick supplies before arriving at their home. The studio was great with all the components needed for a 6 day stay but the room is really on South Rd and it is a short walk around to the front to get a view of the Bermuda water. There is no view from the room at all. While that was the only draw back it really was a surprise as to where the rental room is situated on the property and the lack of view from the room. There is also a large satellite dish almost directly in front of the door so this was not the most scenic spot to sit even though there are chairs. While this was not a deal breaker it is surprising no one has mentioned the lack of a view from the room. The blue and green waters of Bermuda keep us coming back and we like to view them as much as we can, to look outside the window and see South Rd was not my vision of Bermuda I was hoping for.
We enjoyed having cheese and crackers and drinks at the cool tub out front each afternoon and the view from there is magnificent. We saw the full moon from here and even a couple shooting stars. We used the private beach several days and there were usually only 3-5 people each time. The water was perfect the warmest it has ever been but we always come in the spring. I think from now on we'll be coming in September.
We rented a motor boat from Grotto Bay Blue Hole Watersports and had a wonderful day. If you like boating that is a great area with lots of islands to explore.
We like to stay at small quaint apartments and inns and this was great and Wendell and Xinia were perfect hosts. Wendell's mom even drove us to the airport the day of departure.

Believe the five star reviews!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a dream vacation. It started from the moment we were picked at the airport up by Wendell and Xinia. They gave us a gracious welcome, then conducted a mini-"guided tour" of the island on the trip to their home. In the process, they got a good feel for our interests, and were able to direct us to restaurants, parks, and events that we would enjoy.

Believe the other five star reviews! The million-dollar view, the wonderful location, the gracious hosts and clean/well appointed apartment are all accurate. We can add a few more features. The apartment has beach chairs, an umbrella and snorkeling gear for two. There is no need to rent or bring your own.

It is an easy ten minute walk to the famous Horseshoe Bay. (Check to see if a cruise ship in. The beach could be crowded.) If you want solitude and good snorkeling, the apartment's private beach is the place to go. And Church Bay, a quick bus trip from the apartment, has the best bay snorkeling. (It's easiest to enter the water near the foot of the steps. Rocks in the surf make it tricky to enter farther down the beach.)

We also enjoyed watching stars on the deck (trying the Star Walk app was fun). Sitting in the beautiful garden area and feeding the birds was a special treat. And, of course, chatting with Wendell and Xenia was always a pleasure. They are truly special people.

We can't wait to go back.

Perfect 30th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 8 days at Whispering Waves and loved every minute of it! The room was exactly as pictured with a nice large bathroom attached. The location truly is perfect. We opted to use the bus system and we were able to get directly to most of the main beaches (Horseshoe Bay, Church Bay, Jobson's Cove and Elbow beach) and to the craft shops at the main port without having to change buses at all. It was so convenient! Especially because the bus stop is literally right outside the gate.
I will never forget the gorgeous turquoise waters of Bermuda and the little cove below the house which was usually completely empty except for us... We felt like we had our own private beach! There are many stairs to get there (we counted 125!) but it was well worth it! If you decide to rent a motor scooter, you can also access their cove by vehicle.
The Simons were perfect hosts, giving us all the info we needed to get around, but also allowing us complete privacy. Wendell also gave us an anniversary gift upon arrival!
I would definitely recommend this property to everyone!

Amazing... exceeded expectations!!

  • 5 out of 5
You know it's an amazing vacation when you return with a longing feeling for your Bermuda "home away from home"!!!

Wendell and Xinia went out of their way to make our stay special and treat us like family. We opted for a more adventuresome vacation and this property/coordination with Wendell... DELIVERED. Every day, we hopped on our scooter and navigated to one of the many hidden gems that Wendell and Xinia readily provided.

The property is exactly as described (probably better!), very clean, and ideally located for scooters and bus passengers alike. The studio apartment catered to our every need. We even got into a habit of watching the stars (not to mention a double rainbow and fireworks!) from the surreal vantage point of the property's prominent deck.

Thanks to Wendell and Xinia… they are special people with a special place to offer those that are Bermuda-bound!!!

Beautiful Location; Beautiful Hosts; Loved it!!

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment that Wendell and Xinia picked us up at the airport until the moment we left, we were treated like family. My wife and I had a wonderful time relaxing and taking in Bermuda. Wendell and Xinia treated us like family and took wonderful care of us. The apartment is clean and well appointed and had everything we needed. They gave us great tips on transportation, food, and their favorite grocery store. We were there for a mini vacation and a field hockey tournament for our daughter. They were gracious enough to attend one of the games and even helped introduce us to many other wonderful people of Bermuda. Even though we enjoyed their company (especially the soup, drinks, and dessert at one of their favorite places), they gave us the utmost privacy and were never intrusive...just always there when we needed them. What a joy this couple is. I've already recommended this place to a co-worker who is thinking about Bermuda. The bus stop is right outside the door and the private beach is just down the steps. There is a million dollar view from the deck. When we come back to Bermuda...we will Definitely be staying with Wendell and Xinia.

Rest and Relaxation Goal Accomplished!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband wanted to plan a wonderful Valentine's Day getaway this year and chose Bermuda as our destination. He found the perfect studio apartment and booked it for a week. Little did we know that our travel plans would be thwarted by winter storm systems on either side.
The wonderful care that Wendell and his lovely wife, Xinia, provided us both before and during our stay was exceptional. Wendell worked with us to delay our arrival in order to accommodate our new travel schedule. He picked us up at the airport, stopped on the way in to allow us to obtain bus passes and a few grocery items and then on to the apt .
The view from the deck and hot tub was magnificent and our weather was lovely all week until our departure date when a bit of rain set in but no worries--we had an amazing and relaxing time enjoying the ease of the bus stop practically outside our door and the semi private beach.
All in all a trip that will be remembered for a lifetime as well as new friends in Wendell and Xinia that we will have for a lifetime, also. Thanks for the memories!
