About the property

Pool House Studio In A Garden Setting

The pool house has a queen bed and its own bathroom + shower. It is next to our house in a spacious yard in a quiet residential neighborhood. The bus stop is a 3 minute walk, while the beautiful John Smith's Bay beach is lass than a 10 minute walk and the grocery store is 12 minutes away. We have 2 Labradors on the property so this is not a good fit unless you like dogs. :)

The kitchen area includes a small fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, electric kettle, microwave and a toaster oven. There is no oven or burners in the unit.

We also have another rental unit on the property, which is great if you want o travel with another couple/ friends. It is VRBO 969757 - please check it out!

You will have the pool house all to yourselves during the stay. You are also welcome to enjoy the pool ! There is plenty of parking should you decide to rent a 50cc motor bike (cars are not for rent in Bermuda).

We have towels, beach towels, hair dryer and shampoo all here for your use. There is cable TV, wifi and air conditioning.

We are happy to help with any questions on the property or Bermuda in general throughout your stay. You can reach us by phone if we are not at home too. We want you to have an enjoyable holiday in beautiful Bermuda!

this place was the best - adorable, cozy and conveniently located near the main road.

  • 5 of 5

There is everything you need in this adorable cottage - it is very tastefully decorated and cozy as can be with a pool right out your front door. the two Labradors were an unexpected bonus. The owners , who I met briefly, are very pleasant, thoughtful and respectful of your privacy. I hope I get the chance to go to Bermuda again - I would definitely stay there if available.

Amazing place to stay and lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

I spent two weeks in the pool house and my friend stayed in accommodation attached to the main villa and both were just perfect.

Gail and Chris are the best hosts I've ever met, they could not have made our stay any more enjoyable.

The two labs Tess and Abby were just adorable and we have missed them so much since returning home.

Would not stay anywhere else on our next visit.

Most charming hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Gail were truly perfect hosts. It was our first time in Bermuda and their recommendations made our stay perfect; the highlights of our trip were the places and things they advised us to go to and do. Their two dogs were absolutely lovely! Their house is conveniently located: we could get to anywhere on the island within 25min by scooter; beautiful John Smith Bay beach was only a 8min walk away; the airport 15min by cab. The pool house is graciously appointed. At night we could hear the waves crashing from the room.

Bermuda has the most dramatically beautiful beaches, the safest-more laid back atmosphere, and the most welcoming and confidently kind people we've ever encounter on our many travels; and Chris and Gail were the embodiment of their country's charm! Couldn't consider staying anywhere else on our -inevitable- next trip there! Nancy & Elian 08/14-18/2016

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Pool House was just perfect for us. We had visited Bermuda numerous times and always stayed at a large hotel. Never again! We were able to relax in the beautifully appointed studio apt. Gail and Chris were so helpful, both prior to our arrival as well as during our stay, providing information as well as suggestions on how to make our stay everything we wanted. Location was fabulous. Having the pool to use after a long day on the beach and cycles is an added bonus. Abby and Tess (the dogs) helped to make it feel like home, greeting us every time we returned. I highly recommend this rental.

Hidden Gem, So close to Beautiful Johns Smiths Bay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for our last 3 nights in Bermuda, after spending 6 nights in the busier Southampton area, and we absolutely LOVED it...(wish we could have stayed longer!) The pool house is spotlessly clean, and really comfortable. It has everything you need for a relaxing peaceful stay. We loved the pool AND the Dogs Tess and Abby who are lovely and so good natured, and very well behaved.

We did not hire scooters and managed just fine walking using the bus and getting the odd Taxi. This place is private, quiet and just beautiful, we spent most of our 3 days on John Smiths Bay which is about 10 mins easy walk at the most, and we literally had the beach to ourselves most days and enjoyed the perfect weather.

Chris was really helpful, and even though he was away during our stay, made sure we were welcomed & well cared for by his sister in law, he also provided a great taxi recommendation in David. Thanks Chris for your help, and hopefully meet you next time!!

Totally and Highly recommend this place, give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent Stay in Smiths

  • 5 of 5

The pool house was exactly as pictured and Gail and Chris were helpful, friendly hosts. The location was perfect for us. The bus service ends early in the evening, so renting scooters gives you more freedom and the ability to see more each day.
