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!

Fantastic Bermudian Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Sandra and Stan arranged for our transportation to and from the Airport with Mamie which was a wonderful introduction to the Island for first timers. The property was wonderful (We stayed in the 2BR which is closer to the pool). Stan and Sandra were wonderful hosts, showing us about the island and providing wonderful recommendations which made our stay that much better. The Pool is wonderful, the poolhouse and music are wonderful, we used the grill on a few occasions which came in handy and did plenty of cooking. There are 2 grocery stores and a small restaurant a short walk away. There is a small town with a bit more further, but still in walking distance. There are several great beaches within walking distance as well.

Overall, I would rate 10/10 and would happily stay at Orchard Manor again!

Perfect for families and large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was getting married in Bermuda and we wanted it to be as cost effective as possible. So we looked into renting both of the Smiths spaces which worked out perfectly for us. They were very flexible since we had different # of people staying at different times, our max being 10. The accommodations were great for us since we cooked in for Breakfast and lunch most days. Plenty of bathrooms, especially since we had wedding preparations going on. The bedrooms were very spacious and the bed firm but comfortable. The to side pool area was lovely and relaxing after a busy day out and about. Stan was always there to help if needed, such as the gas tank on the grill ran out Stan had another one there ready to be attached or when I needed measuring cups and couldn't find any he was there with some. Lovely couple, Sandra took us to the grocery store for the first run once we arrived which was wonderful. It was only a 5 min walk once we knew how to go. Stan arranged to have a driver for us at the airport holding a sign with our name which worked out nicely. One tip for you all is to have cash for the taxis as they don't take credit cards. It's about a 45 min ride to the Smiths from the airport. Its a lovely drive with the driver giving tidbits of information along the way. Stan also helped us get our bus/ ferry passes. They are supper helpful and by the end of the visit they feel like family as well as our cab drive who happened to be a cousin of theirs. O'Brien was a wonderful driver and helped us out the day of the wedding too. Which happened to a lot of back and forth with 10 people at given time. The whole island was very helpful and friendly from our experience.

The only glitch we found was you really need to pre book your taxis from the house. ( It's kinda in the country) We waited and hour or more when we spontaneously were wanting to go some where and did not want to take the bus. If you are at a busy place such as the dock yards or Hamilton etc.... taxis are plentiful.

What we liked about staying at the Smiths is they are walking distance to 2 smaller beachs one with a park and play ground. The water was amazing and very shallow so great for kiddos. Although the "surfup" shop was closed already in September so no rentals available. We did get to see some sea turtles at Long Bay Beach which was lots of fun.

All in all we had a lovey time with beautiful weather which made for a lovely wedding and this homestead worked well for our large group.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and we were glad to adjust our rates according to your needs. Yes, there are plenty bathrooms between the two units; 6 bathrooms in total (2 in the spacious 2 bedroom unit and 3 & 1/2 in the extremely large & spacious 3 bedroom unit). Also, we are pleased that you enjoyed the amenities at the property and in the surrounding area, such as: our Pool, Pool House, jacuzzi (with the music in the background), and the 2 beaches & park area/playground nearby. We have found that it has been very beneficial living on site (in another 3 bedroom, 3 & 1/2 bath) in order to cater to the various needs of our guests. Regarding the specific Taxi Drivers (i.e. transport from & to the airport and throughout the stay), we have had very positive comments about the services provided (we will specifically thank O'brien on your behalf). Yes, please have Cash (US dollars) available for the Taxi fare (one US dollar = 1 Bermuda dollar). Once again, thanks for the positive comments and it was our pleasure accommodating you and your family at Orchard Manor. Please consider Orchard Manor in the future.

Amazing Vacation Experience!

  • 5 of 5

12 Healthcare professional women vacationed here during the week of June 2-7th 2016. We had an amazing experience in this rental property. Very reasonably priced for the amount of amenities that were offered. The rooms were spacious and very clean with bathrooms for every room. Every amenity you could think of was included. Pillows, Blankets, Towels, beach Towels, Coolers, Iron, Washer, dryer, Hair dryer, Blender, full Kitchen with all utensils and cooking utensils. The pool was beautiful and clean with a pool house that had a bathroom, outdoor shower, and half kitchen right by the pool...So convenient and extremely clean!!! Walking distance to the supermarket, bus stop, liquor store, and beaches. On top of all that the owners of this home were very helpful and accommodating to all of our needs. While the owners live on property they were unobtrusive. They assisted us with getting into town, buying bus tickets, general information for Taxi drivers and local restaurants.

Just wonderful and a true bargain

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 8-year-old twins, and in-laws stayed here for a week in June. There's not much I can say beyond agreeing with everyone else's assessment, but reviews matter to the listings and the Smiths are deserving of all the kudos they get! I'll break this review into three components.

First, Bermuda is quite lovely, albeit expensive. The weather was wonderful--it only rained briefly twice, although it was more humid than I had expected. There's plenty to do, on the water or not. And it's very easy to get around by bus, taxi, and ferry (we used combinations of all three). The people were nice, the food was good, the beaches are AMAZING. I wholeheartedly recommend it as a destination, especially considering it's only 2 hours from the east coast of the US.

Second, the house is great. You'll be renting part of a very large house, with the Smith family and other possible tenants in other parts of the house. The bedrooms are massive, the air conditioning works, and you'll have everything you need. The new pool with jacuzzi and pool house (including bathroom beside the pool) are spectacular! My kids were thrilled being able to start each day with an hour--or more--of pool fun. The house is in a residential neighborhood, but it is literally a 5-10 minute walk to multiple beaches, the grocery store, the bus stop, and some food options. Daniel's Head beach was our favorite--absolutely beautiful, not even remotely crowded, with a food stand and two boat rental stores. And it worked out that two different families had overlapping stays with ours, giving our kids other kids to play with. A surprising bonus!

Third, even if Bermuda and the house weren't enough, there's the Smith family. They simply could not be more wonderful and hospitable. Stan did arrange for pickup from the airport and a taxi back, he dropped us off at the grocery and picked us up 45 minutes later, took us to the post office to get bus passes, and more. Anything at all you need, Stan is there for and is happy to do. You can tell he really enjoys being hospitable; it's not an act. That being said, he wasn't lingering or invasive: he just checked in occasionally, made sure everything was okay, and went above and beyond time and again. His wife is equally lovely, but we didn't get to see her as much.

I'm so happy we chose this place and I can only dream that other VRBO owners are half as wonderful as the Smiths!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very detailed and positive comments about our lovely Island, our friendly people, our property and our hospitality. We are pleased that Bermuda, its people, our property and we, as ambassadors for our Island, were able to make your vacation a very enjoyable one. Yes, there are various modes of transportation and all are very efficient. Yes, Daniel's Head Beach area (5 min. walk) is lovely and comprises a few water sports, along with a food concession. Yes, we are glad that the unit was large enough for everyone to have their own space and own bathroom, and also, that the Pool, Spa/Jacuzzi, Pool House area was a hit, especially for the twins. It was our pleasure accommodating your family and feel free to contact us regarding any future travel plans to our beautiful island, Bermuda. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor.

Great Way to Experience Bermuda!

  • 5 of 5

Renting a house was a first for our family as we have traditionally gone to (all inclusive) resorts. I was somewhat apprehensive dealing directly with an owner. That is, sending the rental money and hoping that there was a property with a legitimate owner when my family of six arrived. One aspect that helped calm my nerves is that the Smith’s (owner) only require half up front and the remainder when you get there. As we planned the tripped, we called and e-mailed Stan and Sandra with questions about the amenities and they always got back to us promptly. Upon arrival, Stan and Sandra were there to greet us and show us around their beautiful home. The property is a large home on a large lot with four units, two of which are for the owners. There is a new common pool and “hot” tub, water wasn’t heated but didn’t need to be as we were there in the middle of July. Pictures accurately depict the properties attributes, which was very spacious for my family. There is a gas grill that we used for a couple of meals and the home was equipped with all the comforts of home. We made a number of trips to the nearby food market which was convenient (Stan graciously brought us the first day). The garage that was available was a pleasant surprise as we rented scooters and were able to park them inside. A recommendation is to have the Smith’s set up taxi transportation to and from the airport; cost was $80 each way for six (we had our name held up on a sign as we exited the airport – cool). Needless to say, we had a great time in beautiful Bermuda and loved our stay at Orchard Manor.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Orchard Manor and are very pleased that the unit was spacious enough to accommodate your family of six and included all the comforts of home. Yes, the specific Taxi Drivers enjoy collecting our guests from the airport and 'your ''Name on the Sign' gives that added Touch. You are correct, the Spa/Jacuzzi by the Pool is not a Hot Tub, but the water gets very warm during the summer months (glad you enjoyed the Pool, Spa/Jacuzzi and the Pool House). Yes, although the grocery store is only a short walk, we prefer to drive our guests to collect the bulk of their groceries and also give a brief tour of the area. Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor and feel free to contact us in the future.
