This stay was far beyond any and all expectations- from our arrival we were welcomed by Alan and Jack (ball in mouth and tail wagging happily), oriented to our beautiful little home for the week with a dark and stormy in hand (quickly to mouth :), then we were shuttled by Alan to get groceries. That evening we cooked fresh Wahoo on the grill and added freshly grown arugula, from Anita’s gorgeous garden, to our salad. Alan provided us with a thorough instruction in the public transportation system which had stops close by. He suggested the best sites for us to see- even took us on a couple of drives around the Island to see some of the Island’s beauty, off the beaten path. We walked to the Flats for 2 meals at Rustica, hung out at the bridge watching the flurry of fish from every color of the rainbow - snorkeled at the beach, played golf, sat on the dock, walked in the parks. Alan, Anita and Jack were the best, most hospitable folks- with a true gift for making one feel welcome -so sorry we had to leave so soon!! If ever we go back, no- when we go back, we will definitely book this location if given the opportunity!!! See you again my friend! Kelly and Shane
Above and beyond
This is a hidden gem! It’s centrally located and very close to several bus stops that take you all over the island. Much of the 5 star rating goes to Alan, the property owner! He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Our flight coming in was delayed so we had a very late checkin. He waited up and had beer, a snack and a hearty breakfast for the next morning. Next morning He took us grocery shopping and gave us a little tour of the island and to the bus office to purchase our weekly pass. The unit is comfortable, cozy and the added bonus is Jack, Alan and Anita’s dog. That little guy is adorable and friendly. All in all our stay was over the top AMAZING!!
My husband and I went to Bermuda for our babymoon and couldn’t be more pleased with this house.
Alan, the home owner, waited up the night we arrived and had wine, beer and cheese for us ... not to mention coffee in our room , yogurt and scones for the next morning.
This place is perfect, centrally located if you want to explore the whole island. We rented a scooter, and Alan was nice enough to take us to pick it up and drive us to grocery store the next morning.
The room has everything you need. Plenty of towels, beach towels and very clean.
It’s walking distance to restaurants and the aquarium. Bus stop to Hamilton is a five minute walk.
Alan’s inviting and friendly nature really made us feel like it was home away from home!
Perfect location, comfortable apartment and wonderful family!
Our first time back to the beautiful island in 10 years, and Alan and Anita (and of course Jack) made us feel right at home. From the moment we got there Alan was very helpful getting us settled in. We had planned on picking up a scooter at once so we could visit a grocery, but since it had rained the day we arrived, Alan instead volunteered to bring us to the store. He also took the long way around, helping us re-acquaint ourselves with the whole middle part of the island! The weather improved and we tooled around and managed to see the entire island in over the next few days. The location is perfectly central to the entire island. Every morning while we were making breakfast Jack would show up at the door with his Frisbee. He is a very accomplished athlete in addition to being a sweet little guy and he and Alan make quite the dashing pair.
We would definitely recommend staying with Anita and Alan and plan to do so again ourselves. Hopefully we will not have to wait ten years this time.
Warm hosts, convenient location, comfortable space
My wife and had a very enjoyable 7-night stay during the off-season in Alan and Anita’s cozy, studio apartment. We were contacted by our hosts a couple of times prior to our stay to answer any questions we had. Shortly after our arrival, Alan drove us to get bus passes and took us grocery shopping. He even gave us a tour of some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Our hosts were engaging and attentive to all of our needs, yet, not intrusive. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well-appointed with microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, hot plate, toaster, and half fridge. There were also basics like coffee, tea, and sweetener.... enough to get by until you get to the store. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this beautiful island. And their bright, little dog, Jack is a real crowd pleaser. Smyth’s parish is located half way between Hamilton and George’s island, making it an easy 15-minute bus ride to either location. We mostly ate breakfast and dinners in and lunches, out. We would highly recommend Rustico’s- a 10-minute walk into Flatt’s Village and the Aquarium/zoo, also a 10-minute picturesque walk. A great vacation!! Thank-you, Alan and Anita. We would definitely stay here again on future visits to Bermuda.
Great place to stay.
What more is there to say. Take the best of all the reviews and you've got it.
Allen and Jack make your stay like home. Very helpful.
