Guestbook comments from the owner

We are sad to be leaving – we loved this place and the Islands of Bermuda. Highlights for us were kayaking, travelling along the island roads on the local buses, swimming off the private beach whenever the urge took us and long sunsets on the terace with dark & stormies in hand. Brian and Dorothy were perfect hosts, ferrying us to the market and up to the lighthouse – our favorite dining spot on the island. We hope to return.

The best property on the island! Brian and Dorothy made us feel at home while on the island and were quick to give recommendations on where to visit and eat. They have the perfect little cottage with everything that you could ever need, including a delicious rum cake provided by Dorothy herself. We were so happy with our choice of where to stay because it made our honeymoon unforgettable. Everyday was absolutely Bermudaful and we will be sure to go back in the future!

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at oyster point! Brian and Dorothy were great hosts and the cottage and location were beautiful. The nearby bus stop made the rest of the island easily accessible. It was a great choice for our honeymoon!

Enjoy Perfect Sunsets at the Boat House

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from 8 nights at the Boat House. This was our second visit to Oyster Point so we knew a little bit about what to expect. Dorothy and Brian are wonderful hosts and the setting of this seaside cottage is perfect.

Dorothy has an eye for detail and she has added many things to make your stay more comfortable: (ie. soft cushions, pretty artwork, plenty of towels, nice dishes).

It feels like "home" once you settle in.

Brian couldn't be more helpful, checking in to make sure you have everything you might require, offering suggestions for restaurants and places to go, reserving a taxi or even kindly supplying a quick drive to the grocery store when needed.

Probably our favourite part of the stay was simply relaxing on the dockside terrace in the evenings. Those beautiful sunsets will stay with us for a long, long time.

We hope to, and look forward to coming back soon.

Perfect accommodations in the ultimate picturesque location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the oyster point boat house and it was perfection. The boathouse is pristine and so comfortable - it had everything we needed, including an unparalleled private view. Your host will tell you everything you need to know and has excellent insider tips and advice to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The views off the private patio and private beach are stunning. That's right - a private beach! The home is also appointed with snorkel gear, canoe beach gear and more. The location is convenient to many many wonderful restaurants, beaches, etc. We would absolutely recommend this rental above all other options in bermuda. We will definitely be back!!

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent an amazing 10 days here and couldn't have been a more picturesque location. Loved being right on the water with gorgeous view of Gibbs lighthouse-especially at night. We spent every breakfast and evening dinners that we cooked at "home" out on the deck--enjoying the ocean, the fish and blue herons, sea turtle, gorgeous sunsets, and true love of nature. Owners Brian and Dorothy were so very wonderful---the cottage was surely one of our best rentals ever, and a very special way to spend the celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope to go back again. Oyster Point had everything we needed and we loved every minute of it!
