One Bed, One Bath Apartment With Pool, Close To The Beach And Hamilton
About Dawn Zuill
The owners of Sea Shells are Bermudians whose families have called Bermuda home for generations. They bought Sunset Lodge apartments ten years ago, aware of its history as one of Bermuda's best known small hotels before it was converted into apartments. Now they are thrilled to be offering it to Bermuda's visitors again and look forward to welcoming you to their beautiful island home.
Dawn Zuill purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Dawn Zuill chose Pembroke
Sunset Lodge is located in Bermuda's central parish of Pembroke, meaning it is close to the island's capital of Hamilton, but far enough away to be a relaxing and peaceful haven for those who want a place to kick back. It is close to Admiralty House Park, once the headquarters of the Royal Navy in Bermuda, but now a beautiful park, at the centre of which is scenic Clarence Cove, one of the North Shore's prettiest beaches. Sunset Lodge was once a favourite destination for entertainers and musicians performing in Bermuda and also boasted a well known nightclub.

Not a great experience
We are four young people used to travel and used to stay in hostels and non expensive hotels.
With that said, we are not picky, we just want to enjoy.
We understand prices are high in Bermuda, but this company and apartment just doesn't meet
-They picked us up from the airport, positive point.
-When we got to the apartment, we realized that it hasn't been cleaned for at least 1 month.
Thousands of spider webs, spiders, dead ants inside the fridge..
- The futon barely stands by itself, be aware you may wake up in the middle of the night on the floor.
-When we opened the bed, there was a bug in between the sheets
-They only left us the 1 bottom sheet for the futon.
-2 rolls of toilet paper for 4 people, 4 days.
- We complained and then finally cleaned the apartment and brought toilet paper.
-Instead of bringing sheets for the futon, they took what we had and left us AGAIN just 1 COVER SHEET. Another night covering ourselves with towels.
-We asked for the missing sheet so we could cover ourselves. No answer
-We also ask if someone could pick us up to take us to the airport, since this is a paid service
they have. No answer.
Also, don't be fooled about the swimming pool, the water is green, however you have the sea close
by so who cares.
In conclusion, this place could be ok if they wanted to take care of it but they obviously don't.
Affordable and Comfortable
We stayed for a week at the Seashells apartment. We found it to be comfortable and a good location. We often went to the Park/Beach down the street, a short walk with our young kids. The taxi to Hamilton was not too expensive (about $8-10) and there is a bus stop across the street which seemed to run every hour. The Wi-fi worked great and we felt safe in and around the apartment. The only bummer was the pool was not very clean but it could have been because of the time of year we were there. All in all it was not fancy but an excellent value and Bill and Kelly were great to work with. It was wonderful to have Bill pick us up at the airport and take us to a grocery store before dropping us off at the apartment. We were able to get food for the week and settle right into vacation.
I stayed a month as a temporary apartment as I moved to the island and truly considered staying in the facility and at least the area. I really enjoyed my stay, the apartment was across the street from Deep Bay where I spent several weekends as well as Admiralty Park. Loved seeing the water everyday as I left the apartment. Facilities were clean, fully furnished and the landlord was extremely friendly, helpful and willing to make my stay as comfortable as possible.
Thanks Joel! It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we are glad it got your life in Bermuda off to a good start!
Bang for buck!!
Clean and comfortable. Great if you are on a budget. The Property Manager was EXCELLENT!!! He was very helpful in providing information about the Island and getting around. He even arranged an Island tour and airport transfers.
Best bang for the buck
We are a contractor working on the island at the airport. The apartments are in a great location on the island. Downtown Hamilton is with in short distance,shopping, restaurants, the beaches are close, and great atmosphere. This is a great place to stay on vacation or work. I would recommend these apartments for anyone staying on the island.
Sea Shells is located within walking distance of Clarence Cove, located in beautiful Admiralty House Park. It is five minutes from Bermuda's capital, Hamilton which has terrific restaurants, shops and museums. It is ten minutes from almost all of Bermuda's beaches, golf courses and other major tourist attractions. For the business visitor, Sea Shells is convenient for all of Hamilton's companies. It is on a bus route to Hamilton, makign sightseeing easy if you don't want to rent a bike.
