Fantastic apartment in Smiths Parish, near the Verdmont Museum, Flatts Village, and John Smiths Bay. Great accommodations for two or three guests, with the option of renting C32A (the guest room) for an additional guest.
Cable and direct TV, wireless internet, local telephone service, Air conditioning, iron, and hair dryer.
Kitchen amenities: microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle, fridge, stove, BBQ. The laundry facilities can be made available to guests staying 7 or more days, since water is a very precious resource in Bermuda.
Bus service to the door stops after 6 pm- HOWEVER buy the bus passes and please note that you can take the #10 or #11 bus back from Hamilton or St. George late at night to Flatts and the taxi fare back to the house is only $8 + tip. Scooters are useful at this location. There are two bus services to choose from the Middle Road and the South Shore routes. Located half way between St. Georges and the main city of Hamilton (each approximately 20 minutes away), the closest beach is about 5 minutes up the South Shore Road at John Smiths Bay via mopeds or the bus. There is bus service up and down Collectors Hill where you can connect to the South Shore bus that will take you over to John Smiths Bay on the way to St. Georges, or the tranquil Devonshire Bay on the way to Hamilton.
Mopeds can be rented from Smatts Cycle Livery at Tuckers Point Hotel. See links in the “For Your Information” section of our website for these and many other services. Shopping in the neighbourhood includes a supermarket at the junction of Collectors Hill and the South Shore Road, where there is a pharmacy and a great little family style café called The Speciality Inn. They will be happy to serve you delicious home cooked meals at very reasonable prices. The Northrock Brewery Pub is also in the neighbourhood. Harrington Hundreds is another nearby supermarket with a fine selection of gourmet items, as well as liquor, beer and wine. They will deliver to the house for a fee. You pass Harrington Hundreds on the way to John Smiths Bay, so stop in and pick up fresh bread and cheese and some cool drinks on your way to the shore. Drycleaners, a pizza parlour and a Post Office are also nearby.
Flatts Village is five minutes away by bus or mopeds (and is delightful village) with nice places to eat (Rusticos is particularly pleasant), gift and other shops as well as the Aquarium and Zoo. Sports activities include tennis courts (which can be booked at reasonable rates) at Grotto Bay Resort, which is 10 minutes away by bus and a parasailing operation in Harrington Sound, and a new fitness club in Flatts. Golfers will enjoy the Ocean View in Devonshire.
Spittal Pond is a south shore park on the way to John Smiths Bay that features a salt-water marsh and a spectacular section of the rugged rocky coastline. Here one can see the initial and the date of 1543 carved in stone at Spanish Rock. Hiking is enjoyable at Ferry Reach and St. Davids Head, two of the larger and more interesting parks. Consult your detailed Bermuda map, available at Bermuda Bookstores for under $8.00 for clearly marked areas and the best road instructions for the out of the way lanes and side roads.
Swimming and snorkeling are good on most beaches. However, Shelly Bay Beach (10 minutes away) is very safe, never has an undertow (as do many of the more turbulent South Shore beaches) and the caves around the headland offer excellent snorkeling. Tobacco Bay in St. Georges is a great beach year round – sheltered and with marvelous numbers of fish. Diving, sailing and windsurfing are all available at Grotto Bay and Castle Harbour, which are nearby. Don’t miss Coopers Island Nature reserve (see beaches and attractions section of the website), The Aquarium in Flatts, Naval Dockyard in Ireland Island or the Town of St. Georges- so many charming places to visit…
