Perks for the Parents

This lovely, freshly renovated apartment, within a 19th century former English naval officers’ residence, has expansive sea views over the Great Sound and is 10 minutes’ walk to all the family fun at The Royal Naval Dockyard. It sleeps up to 6 + 1. You’ll be staying in a prime position with the privacy of your own place and outside space but near the vibrant tourist spots. Eat at home on the patio overlooking the water or stroll to the Dockyard where there is a wealth of eateries including a traditional pub, pizzeria, artisan ice cream, Bermuda fudge and an authentic French bakery. For a family day out to the beach, a comfortable public air-conditioned bus transports you directly to the famous pink sands of Horseshoe Bay.

Why Kids Love it

The property is family friendly with a twin bedroom ideal for kids, plus a backyard to run around in. Bermuda is a family-friendly island with so much to do. Kids will love the little train at The Dockyard that runs to different attractions. At Dolphin Quest, kids can swim with the dolphins, while there are water tours, rental boats, kayak tours, snorkelling and catamaran tours, scuba diving and jet skis. Paint your own pottery at the Jon Faulkner Gallery or find out more about the area’s history at the National Museum of Bermuda, where there’s also a discovery sand pit, a 21ft lighthouse with a slide, seaweed-like climbing elements, and a 70ft green moray eel.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. The apartment is in a building that houses 3 residential houses and 10 vacation apartments with a large communal dock and entertainment area. The residence is surrounded on 3 sides with water and there are drops from the property into the water on the far residential side, although outside the rental properties the area is securely fenced. There is a dock on the property which is gated. There is a road at the front of the house. Car hire is not essential as there is good public transport, or you may rent mopeds, bicycles or Renault Twizys (2-person electric cars). Rates are subject to a 4.5% tax (plus 2.5% processing fee on the tax amount) that is charged separately on booking acceptance.

About the Location

The residence is in Sandys Parish in the westernmost district of Bermuda. It is a 10-minute walk to the picturesque Dockyard area with restaurants, shops, dolphins, jet ski tours, para-sailing, mini golf, and more. Hamilton, the main town with shopping, restaurants, and parks, and the historic town of St George’s are both accessible via ferry (St. George's April -October and Hamilton all year). For a day at the beach, public buses outside the property take you directly to the white-sand and azure-water of the famous South Shore Beaches. L.F. Wade International Airport with flights from most American and European cities is 50 minutes away by taxi.

Accommodation Details

The residence has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms – both with tubs – and is at garden level. There is a modern, open plan kitchen with a full-size fridge, oven, dishwasher and microwave, plus a breakfast bar and living space with couches. The master bedroom has a queensize bed and ensuite bathroom, while the kids’ room has 2 twin beds with access to the family bathroom. There is an additional queensize bedroom as well. Outside there is a small, grassy backyard with a private patio and dining table and chairs for alfresco dining. A communal dock and patio has seating and a barbecue.

Style Notes

Tropical getaway. This immaculate apartment is in a historic British building with high ceilings and plantation shutters, built to make the most of the spectacular views of the turquoise waters of Bermuda's Great Sound. This ground-level apartment has been recently updated with kid-friendly furnishings and blue and white nautical-striped bedding. We love the bright aquas, blues and tropical greens that reflect its surroundings, the cheery orange and blue kids’ room with floaty white curtains, and the private garden right next to the water.
