Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure meeting you. Your place was great in so many respects and we had a very relaxing time there! The view, the pool, and the quality of the unit itself were all major pluses. We really liked that it was close to St. George's but sort of secluded and private in relation to the busier areas on the island. We'd absolutely consider booking with you again if and when we return to Bermuda.

A beautiful, peaceful place to stay in Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

Just as pictured, a most amazing view! This beautiful guest house was a great find for us. It was literally next door to our friends that we were visiting in Bermuda, so it worked perfect! A driver picked us up at the airport and delivered us to the guest house giving us the code to enter. The house was clean and very comfortable. It is layed out as 3 separate rooms. The bedroom is where you enter and has that gorgeous view. A hallway takes you to the middle room which is the living room/kitchenette with all the amenities you will need. The bathroom is the last room and very spacious! A large walk-in shower and very modern. The only negatives I could say about this place is the shower went hot to cold and the air-conditioning unit is located in the Living room/kitchenette and does not get into the bedroom or bathroom so it got a bit hot in those areas. We opened the windows as there was always a nice breeze but there were no screens on them. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom which did help and kept us comfortable. Mike the owner was onsite and very friendly and helpful. The pool looked fabulous but we were to busy to spend any time in it. Its very close to the airport and a $15.00-$20.00 ride to St Georges. We would definitely stay here again! The view is SPECTACULAR!!!

The Perfect Setup

  • 5 of 5

Located in St. David, this rental is on a beautiful property. The interior, one bedroom, one shared living room/kitchen, and a bathroom, is modern and clean. Perfect fit for two people. The exterior, pool area, is expansive and overlooks the bay. You could spend all day relaxing here. We rented a scooter to explore the island. Overall, this was a great trip!

Mike - Thank you for having us! It was a pleasure to meet and speak with you. We will see you soon.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Mike's property was a beautiful place to stay in Bermuda.

When we first arrived (with the help of a friendly, helpful driver who gave us a little tour and stop at the market) we were shocked by the beauty of the view, and this allure never wore off. This place is gorgeous -- overlooking the bay and a secluded cove -- and the location of the pool is amazing!

Mike's amenities made our stay very comfortable...highlights include seats by the pool for reading, tons of Bermuda reading material and even coffee filters and kitchen details that we didn't even realize we needed until we got there.

Like all the previous reviews said, this property is breathtakingly beautiful. We were able to walk to Clearwater Beach and explore St. George's from here. Also, like other reviews said, remember that you are remote. We explored Bermuda from here every day, but used the bus system, and only made it as far to Hamilton one day just because it felt like a lot of travel time.

Overall, our trip was fantastic and super relaxing. Thanks to Mike for sharing his home with us!

Peace of mind

  • 5 of 5

Great location with first class accommodation to match.

Mike is a great host . You're not living in a hotel but part of a small community with lush landscape and quaint country lanes. St George is about 10 min away on a scooter and shopping and restaurants abound. This part of the island offers a series of beautiful, often secluded beachs that contrast with the hustle and bustle beaches along the south shore. Overall top marks to our host and a full blown recommendation to anybody considering the home called Narrow Escape, St David's, Bermuda

amazing get-a-way location

  • 5 of 5

amazing views of the sunrise from the bedroom. this was a perfect retreat for a couple who wanted to get away from things for a bit. it is off the beaten path in the best sense of the phrase. I would recommend a scooter (oleanders at st George will deliver and pick up) as this house is located in st. davids. the cooper nature preserve (and pristine beaches) is 10 minutes away and st George is about 15 minutes away. mike was very nice, accommodating, and his dog karma (mostly good) was very friendly. pool was good for the view (a tad chilly in april). we like to cook and found that we were able to prepare salmon, chicken, pasta, and fresh salad and potatoes without too much difficulty. there is a coffee maker, stovetop (no oven), and microwave. plan on going again.

This place is absolutely beautiful! Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved our week's stay. A great relaxing vacation! A very beautiful apartment with spectacular views. The sunset can be seen every morning from your bed!!! Mike is such a warm loving guy, who makes you feel comfortable the second you meet him. We rented a moped & travelled the entire island...then returning to this incredible hideaway! Highly recommend this amazing paradise!
