We had a wonderful stay. Stan and Sandra are incredible hosts- always available to answer questions and make sure we had everything we needed. The property is beautiful and our kids loved running around outside. The house was very comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked. The location is great- very close to the grocery store and the bus stop. We would highly recommend!
Thanks for the review. We enjoyed catering to the needs of your family as we try to be good ambassadors for our lovely island. Yes, the grounds are very spacious (one acre property with a large front lawn) and good for the children to run around, and the Pool/Jacuzzi is ideal for relaxing after a day of touring. As you mentioned, there are many amenities nearby and other places of interests are a bus or ferry ride away. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor. Hope to accommodate you in the future.
Excellent Hospitality, Great Property
Our 5-day stay at Orchard Manor was fantastic. The hospitality of the hosts, Stan and Sandra, went above and beyond sharing their beautiful home/property. They provided excellent customer service every step of the way from pre-trip communications to having beach toys and cartoons ready for our young kids upon arrival (they were hooked immediately!). They offered guidance and advice every step of the way including taking us to the post office to get transportation passes, to the grocery store in their personal vehicle to do our initial shopping, to a favorite local take-out restaurant for dinner that first night, and of course answering any questions or offering advice as requested to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location was perfect for us- not in the middle of the super-touristy resorts- but with easy access to a couple beautiful beaches, playgrounds for the kids, the rail trail and Forts for running/exploring. The bus stop and ferries were also very convenient for island adventures. I would highly recommend this property to others, as we would certainly make a return visit if we are ever fortunate enough to return to this beautiful island!
Thanks for the 'Fantastic' review. It was a pleasure sharing our property with you and your family and we enjoy catering to the needs of our guests. Yes, the property is within walking distance to two beautiful beaches, two playgrounds, the bus stop, supermarket and Misty's Take-Out Restaurant (good food selection). Most guests (upon arrival) pick-up their food after grocery shopping and relax & eat by the Pool. Our two units are very separate and private, however, at times, the guests mingle by the Pool/Jacuzzi/Pool House area. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor, and feel free to contact us in your future travels to Bermuda.
Wonderful house just a couple of blocks from a delightful snorkeling cove. The hosts were so nice and helpful.
Thanks for the review and thanks for choosing Orchard Manor. Feel free to consider us in the future.
Wonderful stay at Orchard Manor 9/10/2017 thru 9/16/2017
Orchard Manor was very clean and comfortable for our family of five. The interior was a little dated but was clean and well kept. The Smiths (Stan and Sandra) were the perfect hosts and took care of our needs in every way. The Taxi drivers that they had us use were punctual and very pleasant to work with. The location and proximity to several activities that we wanted to take part in was a bonus. A highlight for us was the close proximity to the turtles at Daniels Head Beach. We were swimming with hundreds of turtles and went back three times during our stay. We highly recommend Orchard Manor for your stay in Bermuda.

Thanks for the review. We are pleased that you found the unit clean, comfortable and well kept. Yes. the Taxi drivers treat our guests well and serve as Great Ambassadors for our Island. All our guests welcome the opportunity to see and swim with the Turtles at the nearby beaches (5 min. walk). Also, we are glad that the proximity to public transportation was very convenient for your travels around Bermuda. Glad you enjoyed your vacation in Bermuda. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor.

Everything about our week in Bermuda was great, In general, we loved Bermuda, and specifically, we loved staying at Orchard Manor. The location was great for us ( large grocery store within walking distance), the house had all of the amenities that we needed, and the pool and pool house were perfect. Orchard Manor is also within easy walking distance to the nearest bus stop. Probably the part that we enjoyed as much as anything was getting to know Stan and Sandra and their family. If we return to Bermuda, which is likely, you can bet we'll be hoping to stay at The Orchard Manor again. What a great week we all had!!
Thanks for the positive comments. We are pleased that the accommodations and our location met your needs. It was a pleasure meeting your family, and we thoroughly enjoyed accommodating everyone at Orchard Manor. We definitely remember the afternoon when the adults, the babies, the other young children, the other guests and a few of our family members enjoyed the Pool & Jacuzzi. Everyone had a GREAT TIME!
Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor and considers us in future trips to Bermuda.
Six of us rented Orchard Manor for a week to be near
the Americas Cup Village.
It was the perfect location, only a short bus ride to the Dock Yard.
Very convenient for shopping also.
Thank you, Stan and Sandra, for being so helpful when we arrived, driving us around the area and explaining where everything was.
The house is clean and comfortable.
Thanks for the review. We are pleased the unit met your needs and the location was ideal and close to various places of interests, as well as the supermarket, beaches and Bus Stop. It was our pleasure showing you around the area. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor.
Orchard Manor is located in a great area near two family orientated beaches, Long Bay and Daniels Head. Next to Daniels Head you can find privacy and romance at 9 beaches-9 small coves.
