Overview

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!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Bermuda. Gail, Chris, and the dogs Tess and Abbey were the perfect hosts. The house was centrally located which made seeing the whole island by scooter fun and easy (although we did take a taxi a few times). Beaches are beautiful! The people are lovely! The pool house was clean and cozy.

The weather was a bit cool, so we plan on coming back in the summer. We will definitely stay here again! Thanks Gail and Chris!

Perfect stay for our first trip to Bermuda!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Gail's pool house was perfect for our 5 day trip to Bermuda. It's a short taxi ride away (~$25 trip) from the airport. The pool house was very clean and the kitchenette was complete with a toaster oven, microwave, fridge, Keurig--great for simple meals in. Chris and Gail provided beach and bath towels, shampoo/conditioner/body wash/aloe. When our cravings for steaks on the grill kicked in, Chris and Gail were kind enough to let us use their grill! John Smith's Bay beach is less than 10 min walk away. The nearest grocery store is a 10 min walk. The 1 bus stop is right down the hill (1-2min walk) and got us to and from Flatts Village and Hamilton for pretty painless transfers to other bus lines operating out to different areas. The best part of our trip was hanging out with their two pups-Tess and Abby-who were cute and cuddly! Overall we highly recommend staying at the Pool House for your trip to Bermuda! Thanks again Chris and Gail!

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.
