Accès des voyageurs
The unit has it's own entrance and there is a small wrought iron table with two chairs on the landing just outside your front steps. Comfy cushions are provided - it is a pleasant place to sit while having that morning coffee or afternoon tea.
There is also a clothesline to the back left of the unit which you are welcome to use for your swimsuits and beach towels.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We expect to meet you on the day of your arrival to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
We live in the downstairs unit so we are available if you ever need any assistance, guidance or just want to share your Island experience.
The Bermuda courts mete out severe penalties for drug possession (even for personal use & in small quantities) and firearms & ammunition are strictly prohibited as well. Medical marijuana use is considered a criminal offense, prosecutable by Law.
While most people you encounter in Bermuda will genuinely be friendly and caring, as with most places, there are a few folks who will look for trouble. Always be aware of your surroundings and if your instincts tell you "no", listen!
No smoking is allowed within the unit, however if you need to, an ash pot can be provided outside of the unit.
One of the unique features about Bermuda is how we capture water for our usage: the white roofs are constructed in a way to allow rain water to filter into concrete tanks under our houses. We use this water for bathing and washing but it is limited in its supply so we would appreciate your conservation efforts. We do not recommend drinking this water - sufficient drinking water will be provided to get you started until you can purchase some.
Due to our location, we have to import 95% of what we use ... fuel included. As a result, our electricity costs run about $0.30 per kWh. Kindly ensure lights, electronics and especially the air conditioner is turned off when you are not in residence; the fans can remain on as they will help to keep the air circulating and the rooms cool.
If you're a seasoned traveller, you'll know that little critters live everywhere. Sub-tropical weather on the outside often lures them into the inside. We employ best efforts to ensure that they don't share your accommodation but appreciate your understanding if they appear while you're in residence!
NEED HELP? JUST ASK
Any thing you want to know, just ask us. We are always willing to help.
I was born and raised in Bermuda and my husband is British-born Jamaican. We have both worked in the Cayman Islands (also a tourist destination) so we understand the need for accommodation that is clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and centrally located. Particularly in these times, it is necessary for one's money to go a little further without compromising standards and security.
Maintenance of the property is a family affair - our Uncle assists with transportation (he's a taxi driver) and our Aunt and Mother assist with housekeeping.
As time allows, we like to travel - we seem to wind up in London and Florida annually to visit with the children and grandkiddies. Japan is on our bucket list, although we'd love to visit Australia and New Zealand sometime in the future.
It is now our time to extend to others the hospitality which has been extended to us ... we look forward to welcoming newbies or even return visitors to our Island Home.
