Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here at Orchard Manor with clean, beautiful accommodation for our entire family! Sandra and Stan were a joy to work with and extremely hospitable. We could easily walk to get groceries, to public transport and to the beaches. Loved every minute of our stay here - - it just went by too fast!

Awesome vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We love this house for it's convenient location, great owners and luxurious accommodation. We have used VRBO several times for houses in USA, Costa Rica and Bermuda and this is the only vacation rental that we've ever returned to for a repeat visit. We've come with our family (including grandparents and young children) and friends and like the option of getting the extra lower apartment if we need more room. Love having the pool on the property and used the gym several times. Short walk to groceries, beaches and bus stops. Got so comfortable here over the last couple years that we've even figured out how to do the recycling... if you feel strongly about it, they recycle cans and glass every second Thursday (the schedule is online). Favourites include snorkeling with sea turtles between Daniel's Head and Long Bay Beach, dinner out at the Dockyard and exploring the South Shore Beaches. Thanks Stan and Sandra!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the return visit to Orchard Manor. We are pleased that everything met your expectations and you appreciated our proximity to the various amenities. Yes, there is a second unit that accommodates up to four persons, thus we can house ten persons comfortably and twelve if required (i.e. four in the 2 bed, 2 bath unit and six or eight in the 3 bed, 3 &1/2 unit - due to the Day Bed that accommodates two, in the living room). The Gym and the Pool/Jacuzzi have definitely been a wonderful addition. Also, it is a short Bus Ride to the Dockyard and to the famous South Shore Beaches. Thanks again for your return visit and consider Orchard Manor in the future.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find Orchard Manor turned out to be. Stan was a kind and caring host, taking us shopping when we arrived, to the post office for bus passes and even giving us a tour of the places difficult to get to by bus. Orchard Manor (2 bedroom Apartment) had everything we could want; AC in each room, a water cooler, a gas BBQ, outside seating and a beautiful swimming pool - perfect for cooling off during the day or a swim under the stars at night. Only a short 5 min walk to the beautiful quiet beaches at Long Bay and Daniel's Head - we loved watching the turtles from the rocky outcrop at the end of the road and stunning sunsets. Walking distance to the Somerset Country Squire Tavern and Breezes at the Cambridge Resort for that special meal. A short walk to the bus stop for a quick ride to Dockyard and the south beaches. We enjoyed our holiday in Bermuda - one of our best, a very safe and incredibly friendly island, we would love to return one day. Thank you Stan and Sandra.

"Hosts" in the true sense of the word

  • 5 of 5

Some girlfriends and I decided to commemorate our 50th birthdays with a trip to Bermuda. Our hosts, Stan and Sandra Smith, couldn’t have been more helpful or accommodating. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and got a mini-tour of the island on the 45 minute drive to Sandys. Once we arrived Orchard Manor, Sandra gave us the grand tour. The house had everything we needed including excellent Wi-Fi and air conditioners for each room. Later, Stan took us to the grocery store to get the house stocked with necessities. Word of warning, Bermuda is expensive. We figured our groceries were about double the price at home. When all was done, it was past 7pm so we got take-out from Misty’s a local burger joint Stan recommended.

The next morning, we explored the local beaches. First stop, perhaps 2 minutes away was Daniel’s Head. This is a small beach with dramatic black rock structures. Another 5-10 minute walk brought us to Long Bay Beach, a very small beach shallow enough to walk out waist-deep 100 feet or more into the ocean. The beach had plenty of shade and was littered with ocean-worn glass; in fact we saw a local couple with a bucket collecting this glass. We had this beautiful beach to ourselves (save two different couples joining us throughout the day). And there were sea turtles! At least four during this day. Because this is a popular cove for turtles, the neighboring resorts would send their guided jet-ski groups. They didn’t last long but I felt bad for the turtles. We didn’t want to leave this beach, so stayed all day. As evening approached, a few local families showed up to picnic.

The next day, Stan took us to the post office to buy public transportation passes; early afternoon we caught a bus and a ferry to Hamilton. The buses are clean, efficient and on time. The bus took us to the Royal Navy Dockyard where we caught our ferry. The ferry was modern and comfortable with plenty of shaded seating on the top deck.

Funny thing… everywhere we go, people knows the Smiths. The Smiths were both educators and they are well known/respected on the island.

Hurricane Nicole hit on Thursday. We lost three days of our seven-day vacation. Nicole could have ruined our trip, but Stan and Sandra went out of their way to make sure we were safe, calm and comfortable. We can’t thank them enough for their hospitality, and we’ll definitely give our highest recommendations for Orchard Manor.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at Orchard Manor. Yes, the specific Taxi drivers take pride in their work and give a great tour on route to Orchard Manor. We are pleased that the unit was fully equipped and met your needs. Yes, we take our guests to the supermarket and to the Post Office to purchase their Bus/Ferry tickets or passes. The nearby beaches are ideal for a short dip in the ocean and if you are lucky, you will see sea turtles. The Public Transport System (Bus & Ferry) is very efficient and there is a list of Taxi Drivers & their phone #s (if required) posted in the unit. It was our pleasure accommodating you at Orchard Manor.

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our accomodations. In all, we were 3 couples and stayed in the part of the house featuring 3BR, 3.5 baths, Full kitchen, and living room. We had private entrance and garage space for our mopeds. Wifi worked well all thru the house. It was just what we were hoping for. The residence was clean and well maintained and the pool area was very nice. Stan and Sandra could not have been more hospitable, giving us information on transportation, dining, culture and more. So friendly and helpful. Such a nice short walk to the beach and close to the Dockyards for nearby shopping and dining. A short walk to the nearby Cambridge Resort where we rented mopeds. Next time we travel to Bermuda we would definitely check availability of this property! We highly recommend it!

Amazing Accommodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 travelled to Bermuda for Cup Match and we were greatly pleased by our accommodations. We rented five rooms and was surprised at how marvelous it all was. The house is in close proximity to the beaches and we were able to walk to the beach and enjoy the evening sunset and take a night swim. Mr. Stan and Ms. Sandra were wonderful hosts. They arranged for taxis to pick us up from the airport and once we arrived on the property they gave us the grand tour. The house has excellent wifi and we were all able to keep in touch with our families that we left behind in the states. We are all looking forward to going back in 2018!!!

In my reviews I usually list a con to allow readers to get a clear picture of an establishment however I honestly don't have a con for Orchard Manor. Traveling with great friends and staying in this beautiful place made this one of my greatest vacations!
