Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Meeting Wendall and his wife was a lovely start to our holiday - I cannot rate these two enough! They are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartment was cosy and inviting and a great base in order to get around the rest of the island. The private beach, hot tub and loungers are also a great way to pass the time away when you're not sight seeing. I would definitely go back and recommend to others, no doubt about that.

Chantal & Romi

(Thanks for having us again!)

Your temporary paradise...

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful spot! Overlooking the clear blue surf and very near to perfect beaches. It was a perfect location for us because we wanted to be outside in sunshine and on the beach. We could walk to several beaches and there was a bus stop just across the street. Wendell and his family were warm, welcoming and informative. From the moment they picked us up at the airport, they did all they could to make our stay a great one. When we told them we planned to use the buses during our stay, they even drove us into Hamilton to get our bus tickets. Most of all, though, we really enjoy talking to Wendell and Zinnia and Wendell's mother (sorry I forgot your name!). They've lived very interesting lives and are wonderful conversationalists. They're excellent hosts and are the best representatives Bermuda could hope for. Definitely consider this location for your stay - you'll love it!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Believe the reviews, Wendell's home is paradise. We stayed for five nights in this idyllic location and their home is central to the rest of the island.

Everything was well communicated and planned from the airport pickup/drop-off, to advice about where to go on the island. Not only did we feel taken care of in Wendell's home, we truly felt like we were home! Someone was always available to answer any questions we had while also feeling like we had the place to ourselves. Truly a perfect stay!

The private beach is one of the more amazing places we've ever been in our lives - imagine Tobacco Bay, but you're the only one there. Paradise.

Thank you Wendell for an amazing stay, great recommendations, and an unforgettable experience. We hope to be back soon!

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a rest. Bermuda is our favourite place to go. We happened across Wendell on VRBO. His place is just across from the Southampton Hotel in a quiet neighbourhood on the cliffs overlooking a nearly private cove and great beach. The swimming was great! Wendell isn't your average host. Believe every previous review!

At the last minute, our adult son asked if he could join us because he had some time off. We called Wendell, but he only had the 1 room. He called a friend who had a place further along the coast and he set the whole thing within a day. Our son also ended up at a beautiful house on a cliff with a spectacular view. (we can't thank you enough for doing that, Wendell)

Wendell picked us up at the airport, and offered to show us some sights on the way to his place. We were happy to have a private tour, and 3 very interesting hours later, we arrived at his lovely house. We learned and saw more on that tour than on all our previous visits! Wendell offered to take us anywhere we wanted to go while we were there. He is a generous and kind person who instantly seemed like an old friend. If you want a real personal touch, stay at Wendell's. By the way, if you really like unique experiences, ask him about the best fish sandwich on the island! We look forward to seeing you again, Wendell. Thanks!

Just Right!

  • 5 of 5

All of the previous reviews were spot on! Wendell and Xinia are wonderful people full of information about the island and the many things you can do there. They picked us up from the airport (and took us back) and gave us a tour Hamilton and drove along Shouth Shore Rd past our place to show us around a little more.

We were not planning on staying inside very much, so the unit was perfect for us. Why waste money on some extravigant hotel room when you are just sleeping in it? Nothing negative to mention. The unit is on the road side of his house. The traffic is not heavy or loud. You get to look out onto one of the golf courses. There is a sitting area there, but we used the deck in the front of the house. Sunrise and sunset on the ocean. I could do that everyday! We grilled in 2 of the nights on the small grill and we were able to warm up in the hot tub after getting caught in an afternoon rain storm (which was predicted, but it was so nice in the morning that we still went to St. George's).

We decided to rent a scooter and then were off on our adventures. We drove all over the island in our 5 days and saw almost everything on the list. Lighthouses. Forts. Naval Dockyard. The Railway. Caverns. Parks/Gardens. Beaches. Churches. Shopping. Horseback Riding. Our travel was not in tourist season, so we were able to get around without any problems. At no time did we feel insecure while being out-and-about. The beaches were empty of people. Occationally, we would pass someone else on the beach, but for the most part it was just us, playing in the water, or relaxing with snacks. The water was still warm. Absolutely breathtaking views. The locals are extremely friendly and eager to assist you. The positivity radiates from everyone. It truly is an amazing place that I intend to re-visit many times.
