The perfect Getaway for Four

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in Studio II in Sept - Oct 2017, and never had a dull moment. Christine and Allen greeted us upon arrival and helped us with advice and even bus / ferry tickets to get us started. Every day you wake up to a fantastic view with the Hamilton commuter ferry quietly docking and picking up a small number of passengers, returning in the evening.

The bus stop is just across the road, next to the entrance of a private beach, where we used to take our morning swim. We also took the short stroll down to Somerset village with its Pharmacy, Liquor Store, and Donald's friendly Local Pub just next to the Sandy's sailing club with excellent sea food, cocktails and beers! Or we cooked at home, entertained by boats passing by, or the locals catching fish from Watford Bridge.

We alternated between going to Dockyard, only 10 - 15 minutes away by bus with its Mall, pubs and restaurants, taking the ferry across to beautiful historical St. George, or bussing all the way around the Island. Everywhere we met extremely friendly and hospitable Bermudians. The rental has a perfect location, is clean and equipped with everything you need, has comfy beds and quality furnishings. It should not be a problem having kids occupying the living room, as there are TV sets also in the bedrooms, and we spent most of our time outdoors anyways. When the breeze calmed down there was excellent swimming just off the private dock below the house, and with mask and snorkel you could see lots of interesting Marine life. In summary; at Christine and Allens you get everything you need at a very competitive rate, for Bermuda. We would gladly come back anytime!

Exellent location, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending a week here, the location was incredible, views and access to the ocean, plus a 2-minute walk to bus and ferry stops. Owners were super helpful and welcoming. I'd recommend this to anyone!

The house on the beach, was romantic with breathtaking views, only made for two though.

  • 5 of 5

The larger property definitely had room for 6, although not on the beach, it was just across the street. Not a modern home, but equipped with all the necessities for an enjoyable Bermuda stay. We are here quite often and will visit this property again.

Fantastic location, excellent accommodations, easy access to ferry and public transportation.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful 2 bedroom cottage. We enjoyed our morning tea as we watched the sunrise on the porch off the second floor bedrooms, cooking out and dining on the patio and stepping down to the dock to take a swim after a day of exploring Bermuda. These were but a few of the amenities we enjoyed. The cottage itself is bright and airy. Very clean and comfortable. The kitchen made it possible to cook meals in as desired and there was a gas grill which we enjoyed for outdoor cooking.

This cottage was a perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary together. Very private yet close to the village of Somerset and the Dockyard as well as a quick ferry ride to Hamilton. Christine and Allen were very accommodating and helpful.

We’re already planning a return trip!

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this property before and it never disappoints! Quiet, clean & comforting. Transportation is a breeze whether you rent scooters or use the bus just steps away. And Watford Studio is close to restaurants and shops. We can't ask anything else from a quick get away.

Christine is great! Very accommodating, easy to deal with and friendly.

This place is the whole package.

Great find!
