We just returned from our third trip to Bermuda two days ago. For our previous trips we stayed at the Royal Palms Hotel which was out of this world. This time we wanted to try an efficiency apartment for a change and we weren't disappointed. Hibiscus Hideaway is just around the corner from the Royal Palms and we were able to walk to the centre of Hamilton in 10 minutes. The unit was clean and quiet and the hosts were unobtrusive but very friendly and responsive. We ate out half the time, but found a very up-market supermarket (Miles) about 10 minutes away with great produce and meat. We are already planning our next (even longer) visit. We would absolutely recommend it as a great place to stay and (by Bermuda standards) a very reasonable price.
I lived in Hibiscus Hideaway while on a work assignment in Bermuda, and I couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay. There is no place on the island I would recommend more highly.
UNIT: The studio had everything I needed: washer/dryer in the unit, kitchen, full fridge, nice bathroom with a towel warmer, television, etc. It was cleaned regularly by the hosts and was always in pristine condition. Any maintenance issues were resolved the same day, unless the one plumber/electrician on the island was on vacation :-)
LOCATION: The location made this place perfect. It’s only a 5-10 minute walk to downtown Hamilton, which has everything you will need. It’s easy to get a scooter, but I appreciated that I didn’t need to because this location was within walking distance to everything – grocery store, bus terminal, ferry terminal, restaurants, shops, etc. Hibiscus Hideaway is the perfect mix of a serene residential area with the convenience of being on the cusp of downtown.
PROPERTY: Not only do you have access to the studio apartment, but the landlords grant access to the beautiful pool and terrace. I spent many afternoons reading by the pool or jumping in to “woodle” (wine on a noodle) with the hosts and friends. The property is well landscaped and beautifully kept.
HOSTS: The best part about my time in Bermuda was Jack and Linda. They are the kindest people you will ever meet, and they genuinely care about the happiness of their guests. Within 30 minutes of my arrival and them showing me the studio, they said, “are you up for an adventure?” and took me out in their boat on the unbelievably beautiful water of Bermuda. That’s the kind of people they are and I am lucky to now call them my friends.
In short, if you are looking for a cozy, quiet space with access to downtown Hamilton and transportation hubs, and you want a well-kept property with kind and caring landlords, Hibiscus Hideaway is the place for you.
I'll start by mentioning this: we have rented apartments in Bermuda upwards of 10 times over the past eight years. Hibiscus Hideaway is, by far, the best property we've ever stayed at for a variety of reasons: The owners literally bent over backwards to ensure all of our needs were met (before, during & after our travel to Bermuda), the location of this property is ideal (literally a 5 minute walk from everything that beautiful downtown Hamilton has to offer), the unit is immaculate, complete with full kitchen & bath (it even has a washer/dryer!) & overall, it was an excellent value for the money. There is no reason to look any further if you are looking for a romantic getaway with your sweetie. Hibiscus Hideaway truly has it all!
Happiness is 5 minutes away in Hamilton Bermuda! A brisk walk can land you at a jolly Pub or a coffee and danish spot! Beautiful weather and directions from the host to the bus terminal led me on a scenic route to other places of interest on the island. It was a delightful week staying in this comfortable addition upstairs from the main house. The communication and trip guidance from the host was fantastic and greatly enhanced my vacation! Absolutely I plan to return!
We found Hibiscus Hideaway to be a comfortable air-conditioned self-catering studio apartment located in a quiet neighbourhood. The whole apartment was clean and well maintained with a comfortable double bed, sofa, well-appointed en-suite bathroom (with shower) and well equipped kitchenette with all of the essentials. The air conditioner was very easy to control and worked efficiently. We found the books on Bermuda and leaflets in the apartment on the local attractions and places to visit very useful in planning our days out. The Wifi was stable and reliable and the offer to use the swimming pool was appreciated.
The Studio apartment was easy walking distance to centre of Hamilton with its ferry station, bus station, and a very good variety of restaurants, shops and convenience/grocery stores. Jack and Linda were extremely welcoming, easy to approach and very willing to offer local advice which helped to make our stay on this beautiful island extremely enjoyable.
Overall a great value for money apartment in a great convenient suburban location.
