About Jan Chentouf

I am a Bermudian married to a Moroccan. We are a retired couple who enjoy sharing the magical surroundings of our home with our guests. The unobstructed views and the lure of the mesmerizing sunsets add to the magic. We love to travel and experience new cultures. I love to share the many stories about Bermuda and advise guests how best they can enjoy our island.

Jan Chentouf purchased this townhome in 1985

Why Jan Chentouf chose Bermuda

This property was owned by my Paternal Great Grandfather in the early 1900 it was sold and later used as a planting ground. It was an awesome feeling for us to purchase a piece of my family history. When building this house the original water tank was discovered with pure water in tact.This property was chosen because of the history, the views and the location. It is the very last house at the end of a private estate road high on a hill. It is peaceful and tranquil. It was named by my Moroccan Husband 'Minzah Jamil' which is Arabic for beautiful views. The unit is a semi detached town house which offers a completely private dwelling.The lawn is equipped with BBQ and lounge chairs for your total relaxation. Church Bay, Horse shoe Beach and the Lighthouse including many restaurants are all within 10 mins walk away. It is the perfect location. My Husband & I are simply delighted to be your Bermuda Hosts.

What makes this townhome unique

An old ruin-the original house was discovered. The limestone blocks were dismantled and saved. They are beautifully displayed in a natural fireplace in the main unit of our home. The land & sea scapes are simply breathtaking with unobstructed views east to west of the island from Hamilton clearly to Dockyard. It also boasts views to the Lighthouse and South shore views from the Master Bedroom. The sunsets are simply captivating and you are simply mesmerised by the beauty.

Beautiful spot, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband stayed at Minzah Jamil over the New Year for 10 days. The house was fully equipped and met all of our needs. We rented a scooter to explore the entire island and the rental is in a perfect location. The hosts Jan and Larbi were absolutely wonderful, great people and so caring. My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back some day.

May be the best location in Bermuda!

  • 5 of 5

Imagine being perched high above Southampton having views of the South Shore and the Sound from Dockyard to Hamilton. This is what awaits at Minzah. You will be walking distance from The Reefs, Gibbs Hill, and Henry viii. We loved every moment and can't wait to return to this lovely property.

A real Bermudian experience

  • 5 of 5

Minzah Jamil truly provides ''a taste of living'' in Bermuda. It is located on one of the highest points of the island and has absolutely stunning views, from the South Shore to the Great Sound, and has the most perfect position for watching and photographing the stunning sunsets. The apartment forms part of a large home occupied by the owners, Jan and Larbi, and is self contained with its own entrance - it is fully equipped (we chose it because it has a full kitchen and dining area and free WIFI) and a large double bedroom and en-suite on the first floor plus balcony - this is a home, not a hotel, so we really felt like we had a real Bermudian experience. The owners were the most welcoming of hosts - gracious and friendly and every day we were able to chat with them to learn a bit more about Bermuda but they left us to enjoy our vacation in privacy. From the home's huge lawn terrace (which we had access to) we could sit and watch the whole of Great Sound from Dockyards to Hamilton - this will be an excellent vantage point from which to view the America's Cup, in fact we saw the Oracle training team in action in the Sound. Go up the Gibbs Lighthouse, just a 5 minute walk away, to enjoy spectacular views of the whole island. The apartment is located about a 15 minute walk downhill to the South Road bus stop from which you can catch the No. 7 bus to either Hamilton or Dockyard. Food shopping is best done by taxis, bus/walk or a hired scooter. The South Shore beaches are within easy reach and we were easily able to walk to Church Bay within 20 minutes. For the final week of our vacation we rented a scooter and there is a convenient scooter rental office near the No. 7 bus stop. The highlight of our Bermuda vacation was to come back each day from exploring island to the fabulous views from the terrace and we felt truly able to relax.

Best view in Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

This was my 7th trip to Bermuda, my girl friend's 1st. I've stayed in numerous other guest houses, and this by far was the best. Jan and Larbi are the best. The view has to be one of best in Bermuda. Knowing Bermuda pretty well, the location is fantastic. If you're looking for a one bedroom, look no further. Looking forward to seeing Jan and Larbi Again.

Great accommodation and fabulous hosts

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little apartment on two levels with great water and sunset views. At the top of a hill so you need to be fit but worth the walk alternatively hire a moped

Hosts were kind and unobtrusive and have thought of everything to make it a home from home even down to waterproof macs! Bus stops at bottom of hill and very well located on the island. I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to stay again soon. If you are a fan of the Americas Cup this is the place to stay as you have great view of the water and training boat team.

Wonderful Place, Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had such a terrific time in Bermuda and Jan and Larbi were a huge part of our experience! First of all, the place is beautiful. The views could not be any better, the location is perfect in conjunction with the beaches and some very tasty restaurants, and it's very airy and friendly. Having your own space to eat breakfast outside in the morning or read on the lawn chairs really helped make our vacation even more relaxing!

Jan had terrific suggestions on restaurants and which beaches were less touristy. We really felt like locals being able to stay in a house and see some places that most tourists don't get to see.

We could not have asked for better hosts or a better vacation spot. The place was clean and perfect for our needs, and incredibly affordable. The next time we come to Bermuda, we will hopefully have the opportunity to stay at Jan and Larbi's!
