You'll love the colorful small geckos, great house companions and insect eaters! We aren't on the water, we are atop one of the highest hills, hence the beautiful views. The beaches are a bus ride away. Bermuda is 21 miles long, 1 mile at its widest, so the ocean is never far away. This is a 65 year old house that though it has been lovingly restored, has it's imperfections, some will love and some need to have more of a hotel experience!

Please note, on rare occasion we accept a pet on a limited basis. If you have allergies to pets, please find other accommodations.

The Bermuda pink bus number 3, pass through Harrington Hundreds, a 7 minute walk away. They go to Hamilton, a 15 minute ride, and St Georges, a 25 minute ride about every 30 minutes until 6pm.

12 minutes walk down the hill you arrive at Harrington Hundreds Grocery. A very good small grocery serving the neighborhood and the upmarket Tucker's Town area. They have a chef preparing hother food daily, plus a wide range of meats, vegetables, groceries, and special dietary foods.

About Marion and Gary Tilton

Our family has lived on the island for 235 years! I am a Bermudian who was raised in this exceptional home. My father who was a jeweler on the island, was raised in the 300 year old house next door which is now owned by my brother! My father was given this piece of his Dad's farmland with lovely views when he was ready to be married to my Mom. My Mom met my Dad when she and her sister came to Bermuda on a flying boat in 1948 from their home in Philadelphia. My Mom and Dad built this house you will be visiting, and we hope you love it as much as we do. I have always had one foot in Bermuda and one in the US. I moved to the US in 1980 to become a flight attendant for Delta Air Lines. A perfect profession for an islander privileged to have dual citizenship! I married a lovely New Hampshireite, Gary, in 1987. We have 2 children who have always loved Bermuda and have their status in Bermuda, having spent much time here.

Marion and Gary Tilton purchased this house in 1951

Why Marion and Gary Tilton chose Bermuda

This much revered piece of property has been in our family for several generations. I say revered because it is on the second highest hill on the island with wonderful views. It is far enough away from the main roads that you hardly hear a vehicle! Bermuda is a gem of an island, then you get to High Terraces, and you feel like you are on your own, very private. Like you are the Crown Jewel in a very special spot. You have to understand though, our house is on the reasonable side of pricing for a reason! It is lovely, but it isn't a hotel!! In the summer every scrap of food must be put away quickly, as ants will find it wherever it is! If you have allergies it might not be the right place. We have heat and air conditioning to dry the atmosphere, but we've have a guest say it was musty at first! Welcome to our island!

What makes this house unique

Spectacular location for walkers, hikers. Getting away from it all, and for those who want to show their family what it is like to be a real Bermudian! The house is filled with good feelings and wonderful memories for me. I grew up here with five cousins next door, and other friends and family nearby. We walked down the hill almost every day in the summer to Harrington Sound. The odd day we didn't go there we were in our boat, or at one of the fabulous South Shore Beaches. We had forts on the properties, hand raised crows for pets when our parents wouldn't spring for a horse or a dog!!

Very surprised to walk through the door and discover this beautiful property. Much better than expected with amazing views of the Bay and sunsets. Place had everything we needed and more. Marion was very accommodating and we couldn't be happier. We hope to come back soon.

Grand View

This was what we were looking for as a base for vacation. Great view of the bay and easy access to public transportation. Easy walk to Flatts Village and Aquarium.

Had a great time.

Thanks Marion and Gary

Panoramic view of Harrington Sound from a very quiet and private terrace!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house is located at the end of a very quiet lane. We enjoyed breakfast on the back terrace most mornings as we relaxed in the sunshine and took in the spectacular view. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle yet still enjoy the beauty of Bermuda.

I have been going to Bermuda every year for the last 14 years and have stayed in many different houses/apartments. This year was by far the best house we have stayed in. The location is great, house was clean and well equipt with everything I needed. The owners answered all my questions in a timely fashion. I highly recommend this house .

Thank you Marion !

  • 5 of 5

My two children, both in their mid-20s, and I stayed at High Terraces from Oct. 6-10, 2016. We lived on the island for five years in the 1990s; it was our first time back to take a walk down memory lane.

We were all extremely impressed with High Terraces ! It was in a beautiful location on the top of a hill with gorgeous views of Harrington Sound. The house was very spacious; each room was a good size. The house was very clean; the kitchen was very well equipped. There were plenty of sheets and towels for us to use. It had all of the amenities to ensure a great stay.

We were fortunate to meet Marion as she happened to be staying on the island not far away. Marion was extremely hospitable; she sincerely wanted to make sure we had the best stay possible. You certainly did, Marion … thanks very much !

If you haven’t been to Bermuda, you must go. It is truly the treasure of the Atlantic. The scenery, the beaches, the friendly people … there is no place like it. And I would recommend that you stay at High Terraces … you will not be disappointed !

Thanks again, Marion, for allowing us to stay at your childhood home. It is a holiday the three of us will never forget.
