One of the best

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Bermuda for 20+ years and over the last few visits have opted to rent houses in lieu of hotel rooms. Most of you will know that, whilst Bermuda is an amazing place, the houses for rent are not the best quality. Not so with the Coach House, which has been refurbished to a high standard with a fantastic eat in kitchen and new bathrooms.

The setting itself is the stuff of dreams, down a tiny country road near to your own private beach with a huge garden. Although it is tucked away and as such very quiet and private, it is literally 5 minutes walk to Long Bay Beach which is one of the most stunning beaches on the island and where you can swim (as we did) with the turtles everyday. It is also 5 minutes away from Somerset Village which has got shops, banks, a gym, restaurants and a couple of bars.

In terms of the overall location, we have spent a lot of time over the years either in Tucker's Town or Hamilton but the last time and this time we were over this side of the island which we really like as it is quieter and, as mentioned above, the beaches are better with more tranquil waters. We also liked being near the Dockyard which is an amazing place if you like your naval history.

Finally, we should mention the owner, Beth who was absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and Beth went way beyond what any other owner would have done to make our stay perfect.

Thank you Beth and we will be back soon!

hard to beat

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house for a family holiday - the photographs don't do it justice. It is much bigger inside than the photos suggest and, also, the garden is enormous and totally private. Literally just a couple of minutes' walk from one of the most picturesque bus stops in the world, getting around the island by bus and ferry was SO easy. The West End of the island has far prettier beaches and far more going on than the East End, so this house is perfectly located. Also, H2O WaterSports is a five minutes' walk away and perfect for everything you might want to do on the turquoise sea. Somerset Long Beach is also just a five minutes' walk away and we would not have believed that it was possible to swim with so many turtles in the water underneath and right beside you. Snorkeling is a must - there are so many fish to see and quite different from bay to bay - and having your own private beach (albeit a very small one) seems a total indulgence. The pace of life in Bermuda is slow and relaxing, so perfect for holidays, and the local people are incredibly warm and welcoming. My wife and I and our three teenage children had the most wonderful holiday ever here. Only two downsides, in my opinion. First, absolutely everything in Bermuda is expensive (between two and five times the price of what we're used paying in the UK!), so don't go unless you're willing to splash the cash. Second - and this is just a small detail - but I think the lawn would benefit from being cut more frequently. Otherwise, though, we found the owner absolutely brilliant to liaise with and immensely helpful.

Secluded and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Coach House Cottage is a wonderful and secluded place to stay. We were there for five nights, and I wish we could have stayed longer! The garden is very peaceful and quiet, and the interior is fresh and bright. There was plenty of room inside and outside to lounge and relax. The waterfront is very private and a great spot to sit reading a book with your feet in the water. The house is conveniently located near several public beaches, a grocery store, and a pub. The kitchen is well-equipped for eating in as well. Can't wait to return in the future!

The perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

The coach house is the perfect family home, beautiful exterior, tastefully decorated interior, large garden with mature trees, veranda and well equipped kitchen. Our family have stayed twice at The Coach House and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.

A short walk to the bus stop and you are twenty minutes from the best beaches of Southamton or ten minutes from the Dockyard.

Our family would spend the mornings at the south shore beaches and finished the afternoon resting and playing In the garden. Our son really enjoyed walking to the Cambridge beaches Dock and fishing with the locals.

Thankyou beth, we had the best holiday ever! We're hoping to come back :)

The definition of perfection.

  • 5 of 5

The Coach House was just perfect. It was so refreshing and relaxing to have such a positive 'end-to-end' experience. From the first email we sent, Beth was so responsive and helpful. Then when we had booked the information she provided regarding the house and surrounds was detailed and incredibly helpful. Then when we arrived, the house was exactly as pictured and exactly as described. It was clean, beautifully maintained and with every amenity. The house was close to the beach but also incredibly comfortable when we wanted time at home. It was pleasure to spend time in the garden, in the large kitchen or in the 2 living areas.We would highly recommend this residence to everyone - it was a fantastic time and a holiday experience together we will never forget.

The "Real Deal" ...

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 are just back from Bermuda and our 5 day stay at “The Coach House” cottage. Very “Bermudian”, in both architecture and décor. It helps make you feel “settled” in Bermuda immediately, like your part of its fabric. As noted by the other reviews, very convenient to buses (I highly recommend a multi-day bus/ferry pass) and nearby beaches, as well as nearby restaurants (some walkable, the others a short ride to Dockyards). The kitchen is well updated, and the AC works perfectly. We spent the evenings out on the back porch area watching shooting stars and listening to the peepers. The bedrooms are roomy enough, with a queen in one and 2 twins in the other. All are comfortable. Baths are also updated, and very clean. We are charmed by Bermuda each time we go, and have now found a place to accommodate us all that delivers that same “charmed” theme – all very comfy and cozy. Thank you for sharing your lovely little cottage. We’ll be back.

Coach House is located between Cambridge Beaches and Somerset Village. The cottage is set in a private garden and has it's own waterfront and tiny beach a short walk down Tween Walls on Mangrove Bay. The large yard and calm waters are ideal from families with children. The natural beauty of Mangrove Bay may be enjoyed from the water on sailboats, kayaks, and motor boats available at H2O sports a short walk from the Cottage. Paddle around the island and through Somerset Bridge, famous for being the smallest drawbridge in the world. Rent bicycles from the kiosk at Cambridge Beaches and take a ride on the Railroad Trail that runs the length of the island. For history buffs and shoppers, Dockyard is just a short bus ride. The beautiful beaches of the South Shore are also a short bus ride away.
