Bermudian delight

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the positive comments made by previous reviewers. If you are lucky enough to stay at Whispering Waves you will benefit from a very competitively priced letting in a great location, a private beach that isn't thronging with over exuberant visitors and you will share the home of a wonderful couple that have many years of experience in the hospitality trade. Bermudian born Wendell will offer you his lifetimes experience of the best that this perfect island has to offer, the stuff that you are unlikely to get from the very large hotels on Bermuda, e.g. where to get the best take out fish and chips, the best beach to see the perfect sunset, or where to buy freshly cooked and piping hot marinated chicken legs and also the best walks to see and explore the natural beauty of this volcanic island, the nicest parks, interesting forts or great shopping. Xinia, Wendell's Costa Rican born wife is full of life and passionately supports her guests by sharing her own personal experiences of Bermuda. We especially loved the chicken celebration cake baked by the head of the family, thank you Mrs Wendell, hopefully we will be back to see you share our Queens major milestone century year!

We hired a moped to get about, my first instincts are for safety but as you can't hire motor cars and also the number of cars on Bermuda is strictly limited, the roads are relatively quiet. Furthermore with a maximum legal speed limit of 20 mph 2 wheels are a viable and safe option. Our "best ever" holiday.

Ideal Location and a Warm Welcome

  • 4 of 5

This unit is part of a large lovely home overlooking the sea. You are basically staying in guest quarters and are truly treated as a family guest.

Wendall picked us up from the airport and gave us a lovely tour of the island including a stop for bus passes and groceries. On arrival, he gave us a tour of the property and introduced us to his family. It was a lovely welcome. Wendall and family were always available but they were also very respectful of our privacy, so it was a great mix.

The house sits along South Road and as stated by others the bus stops just a few steps up the street. Cross Cut Road is on the other side of the property, but is basically a private drive for a small enclave of houses and has very little traffic. The patio is on the ocean side and sits above Cross Cut Road with an incredible view. It is a very nice spot to regenerate and enjoy the surroundings.

The guest room is on the back of the house adjacent to South Road. There is a grassy seating area just outside the room and it is just a few feet to the steps that lead down through the gate to the sidewalk. The bus stops just a few feet up from the gate or directly across depending on which direction you are headed. It is an easy walk up the hill to Henry's for cocktails on the patio or a lovely dinner. Gibb's lighthouse is in walking distance as well.

The beach is gorgeous and as close to private as can be. You just walk across Cross Cut Road and down the steps - yes, there are a lot of them, but worth it.

The room is a nice size with a queen bed. There is a large closet with lots of hanging space. Tableware is provided along with a toaster, microwave and small fridge. The dresser stores beach towels and has all the tourist information you could want. The room is very comfortable and quiet. There is some traffic noise until about 10:00 pm but we were never really there enough to be bothered.

The bathroom is quite large with a tub/shower, large counter with one sink and toilet. Shampoo and bath soap are provided along with a generous supply of towels.

This is not The Reefs nor The Fairmont although both are within walking distance. But whatever this may lack in upscale posh it is made up with the warm and generous hospitality of Wendall and his family. Truly a remarkable experience for two people who have traveled extensively and experienced many levels of world hospitality.

Breathtaking View!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I took a quick trip in February to Bermuda. We picked this unit because of the great reviews and I must say, we were not disappointed.

The house is at a great location everything is close by and the view from the front of the house - oh la la!

We were close to the Fairmouth Southhampton Hotel, close to the bus stop (Bus 7 goes by the house on the main road - South Road), close to the rental scooter shop, close to the Gibb's lighthouse (13 mns walk), water sports activity were right around the corner on ''Middle Road'' which is the street behind the Fairmouth Hotel. They were many well known restaurants around. Everything is walking distance honestly.

Keep in mind that the room is in the back of the house, the breathtaking view is in front of the house by the hot tub and the grill. That did not bother us at all, it was great just having our privacy in the back. The room was extremely clean, everything at our disposal (from maps, to bus schedules to informational and educational books on Bermuda). Beach towels are provided, as well as a mini movie collection.

Our hosts Wendell & Xinia were just a breath of fresh air. They were really nice and very warm and welcoming. Wendell after picking us up took us on a little tour of the island and showed us great places were we could visit. He gave my boyfriend two options for dining, the cheap on and the expensive one.

We had a great time in Bermuda! I recommend the location.

P.S : For some reason I expected and assumed that the beach was right in the backyard. However that is not the case, it' just right up the street down the stairs. Very beautiful beach and very clean. We had it all to ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thank You Guys for your wonderful review and what a pleasure to meet you both. I just need to make one point about the way down to the Beach, that is CROSS BAY ESTATE ROAD takes you DOWN TO IT. The STREET WALK is on the other side which divides my HomeAway and Fairmont Southampton Hotel Golf Club property. I wish you both all the best in your endeavors.

Best location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Bermuda, and we could not have asked for a better experience. Wendell is a true host taking us on our tour showing us places that we would not see otherwise riding the bus. The private beach is the best on the island. Snorkeling and swimming was perfect, and we had such a great relaxing time. We can not wait to come back! The apartment was perfect for the two of us, and the convenience of catching the buses right outside our door was perfect. I can not truly thank Wendell and his family enough for sharing their island paradise with us.
