About the property

We welcome you to enjoy a piece of our lovely Island by staying at Orchard Manor. Our property (1 acre) is located a walk away from pink sandy beaches found on the western end of the island - Daniels Head and Long Bay Beach, two great beaches for the family. Collect shells on the shoreline or get up close and personal with sea life. Let the kids play on the playground if they don't want to be in the water.

Our property has a large front yard for entertaining, great for weddings and big celebrations. Our back yard is a more private setting for BBQ'ing with the family. There is a small gym on the property featuring an elliptical, recumbent bike, stationary bike, free weights etc.

This two bedroom, two bath unit has a queen size bed in one bedroom and two full size beds in the other bedroom. The kitchen/living area is combined. This is a very spacious two bedroom unit.

Cable television, wireless internet, central A/C and beach equipment (floatation devices, beach towels & chairs) are provided.

In addition to this two bedroom, two bath unit, there is a very large three bedroom, three and 1/2 bath unit which is also listed on VRBO #506733.

GREAT NEWS! The Swimming Pool, Spa/Jacuzzi & Pool House have been completed and are ready for use (refer to the photos).

Amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything that we needed for a relaxing getaway. Stan and Sandra were accommodating from the moment we arrived on the property and were always available if we had any questions. They assisted us in getting groceries/bus passes on the first day of our stay, and even gave us a ride to the dockyard on the last day when the buses suddenly went on strike. These owners truly care about their guests.

The two bedroom unit has plenty of space for a family of 4, and having a second full bathroom was very convenient. WiFi signal was strong and appliances were all in good condition. The whole property was calm, peaceful and quiet.

Anyone who wants to avoid a cramped hotel room on their vacation should strongly consider this property. It's closely located to bus routes and ferry stations, which will allow you to explore this wonderful Island from your own private home base.

Thank you again to Stan and Sandra we hope to see you soon!

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!

Warm & Wonderful Setting!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Orchard Manor could not have been any better for the 8 day vacation that my mom, sister and I took to Bermuda. Looking for peace of mind - you will find it there.

The accommodations were clean, comfortable, quiet, and inviting,

The Owners could not have been more helpful through out our stay. The neighborhood and beaches took our breath away. You truly did not need to travel far to have it all.

I am looking forward to my next stay with the Smith's.

Big thank you to Stan, Sandra and Shalisa again.

Amazing quaint 2 bedroom.

  • 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.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Orchard Manor 4 under sad circumstances. there was supposed to be 4 of us but it ended up being 2. Stan and Sandra took us under their wing and let us see Bermuda as few tourist do. By the time we left we felt we had a new family in Bermuda. The rental was clean comfortable and more then we anticipated. We had a short walk to the bus, grocery store, church and multiple beaches. We had as much or as little privacy as needed. The arrangement to and from the airport with Mac gave us an ever better perspective of the island. It was wonderful vacation that will be remembered for a long time because of the Owners of this rental. Highly recommend to anyone.

Thanks again for choosing Orchard Manor and yes, we plan to visit our New Family when we travel to New York.

Bermuda Getaway for two Canadians

  • 4 of 5

Orchard Manor 2 bedroom was exactly as described. Sandra and Stan were very accommodating and helpful, Sandra even driving us to the nearby store to stock up on groceries. Any concerns were addressed promptly. The walk to the store and bus stop was easy for two retired women. We felt that the apartment was excellent value. The bedrooms were large, the beds comfortable with lovely crisp linens. We had plenty of white fluffy towels for the two nice bathrooms. The pool was a bonus, we were able to use it on a few occasions because of the spectacular weather. There were ample dishes, cutlery and cooking materials for us. We would have liked an occasional chair in the great room. I would recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to visit Bermuda, especially to explore the vibrant west end. Thanks to Stan and Sandra for sharing their beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing Orchard Manor and we are pleased the unit met your needs. Also, thanks for the suggestion to improve the unit and we will put a lounge chair or two to complement the sofa, thus providing more seating other than the chairs at the counter. Also, we are glad you enjoyed the Pool & Jacuzzi and the nearby amenities such as, the short walk to the supermarket, the bus stop and the nearby beaches, and yes, the Americas Cup races (May/June 2017) are only an 8min. bus ride.
