My sister and I were so pleasantly welcomed to this beautifully set home on a nice yard in residential St Georges walking distance to downtown. Very clean and well appointed, we rented scooters, shopped at Somers Grocery, visited Robertsons Pharmacy, and shopped the many lovely shops (love the Island Shop) on Water Street. We enjoyed delicious dishes at the Wharf, the Tempest, Wahoo, White Horse, and the Beach Club off St Catherine's Fort beach. Enjoyed many beaches in St Davids like Clearwater (eat at Gomebys) and Long Bay, and Tobacco Bay. It was so nice to come home in the afternoon and relax at the outside table and recount our great times as we enjoyed a cocktail, and planned our next adventure. Thanks Alex!
My husband and I stayed at the cottage in June. This is a beautifully renovated home in a quiet residential area. It is also an easy walk to town. The house was very clean and the owner was quick to respond to any questions prior to booking and through out our stay on the island. I would not hesitate to stay here again if we return to Bermuda.
We spent five days in the Captain's Cottage at beginning of May. It is an historic home that has been lovingly renovated and has all the modern features you would expect.
It is in a great location. It is a short five minute walk from downtown St George's where you will find restaurants, grocery stores, shops, local buses and the ferry to the Dock Yards. Fifteen minutes in the other direction are two great beaches (Tobacco Bay and St Catherine's). There are very nice walks along the coast and the roads have very little traffic.
We will definitely look to stay in the Captain's Cottage when we are back in Bermuda.
I have nothing but praise for Captains Cottage. It is tucked away in a lovely, private location just a minute or twos walk from the centre of St George's and only seconds away from the Perfumery. The cottage consists of a very spacious and comfortable open plan living area and kitchen (very high quality kitchen goods), as well as two large bedrooms with the most comfortable bed I have slept in anywhere (I have had numerous spine operations and often struggle to find a comfy bed!). The bathroom is also spacious with a great shower over the bath tub. Outside there is a small but adequate patio area with a table and chairs, ideal for breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. The pleasant gardens surround the cottage and have numerous trees, including coconut and a banana bush that gave us some very nice fruits for breakfast. If you are lucky you might be visited by Spooky the Cat who at the grand old age of 22 lives next door and is very friendly! When we arrived Alex the owner gave us a warm welcome and very comprehensive tour of the property - excellent! We would happily go back again as there is nothing to fault the cottage in any way. We had a fantastic trip to Bermuda and our neighbours were all so friendly and sociable.
