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 to travel with another couple/ friends. It is VRBO 969757 - please check it out! The other unit has a stove too.

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!

Excellent location, Great Hosts, Nice and well equipped pool house

Beautiful location close to a very nice beach. Host were very friendly and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to have a pleasant stay. Use of the poolhouse patio was great and we had multiple dinners/lunch there. Dogs are extremely friendly and quite.

A quiet location and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The bus stop is a 5 minute walk and a peaceful beach less than a 10 minute walk. Gail and Chris are great hosts! Super friendly and helpful. We will stay here again!

What more can you want from a Holiday apartment - Great location, Comfy bed, Friendly owners and SUN

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted with a Smile from Gail and Chris (and a slobber from Abby and Tess) and were settled in to our Nice Pool Apartment. The Location was ideal with an easy walk to 2 x bus stops, which took us on different routes. I wish the Bus service was as reliable and friendly in the UK. We were greeted with a Smile by the Bus driver and a GOOD MORNING ALL by all the passengers. Super service. We didn't hire a scooter as the bus service was so convenient, although the last bus from Hamilton was at 18.20, so if you missed that it was a $20 dollar taxi fare back.

We liked Tobacco Bay and Jobsons Bay as they were small and friendly. Horseshoe Bay was nice but crowded.

Everything on the Island is expensive so shop around for food on the back streets.

Worth visiting the Harbour Nights Evening in Hamilton just to see the Gombeys Dancing.

All in all a Good Holiday. Lets just hope the GB Team wins the Americas Cup.

Bermuda Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Truly a wonderful place to stay while in Bermuda! My husband and I had a very relaxing stay at the pool house with gracious hosts, Chris and Gail, and canine companions, Tess and Abby. Location was great, very close to John Smith's Bay Beach and a grocery store, while also accessible to Hamilton. Must rent a moped to see the island (Oleander's cycles will deliver to the house). Would highly recommend staying here!

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!
