C22: Flatts Village Smiths Parish Vacation Cottage for Rent
Smiths Waterside Cottage
Vacation Cottage in
Flatts Village Smiths Parish
||1 Bedroom • Sleeps 2
||1 Full Bathroom
The pretty little cottage is perched at the water’s edge, overlooking Harrington Sound near the village of Flatts.
C22 is just across the street from another unit, C22A – an apartment which features gym equipment, a modern kitchen and outdoor patio, but is not waterside and does not have access to the kayaks. Would be an excellent pairing for couples travelling together for optimal privacy.
With A/C and a ceiling fan, as well as a heater, the cottage has a four poster double maple bed with a new mattress, and its own little three piece bath with shower (and hair dryer so you don’t have to pack one).
The cottage has its own private phone line with a phone jack, and television service (no cable). Wireless internet is available.
In the kitchenette we have a coffee maker, toaster oven, clock radio, small fridge/stove unit (freezer space small with only ice trays) and an iron and ironing board. In the garden there is a barbecue as well (coals need to be purchased), so you can lounge and watch the para-sailers float by while your steaks sizzle.
The wonderfully clear water off the dock is about 5 feet deep. There is NO FISHING permitted from this property, including from the dock. 2 towels are provided for swimming at the dock. There is also a two-seater kayak available for guests of C22 only, along with two life jackets. If you prefer to lounge on the waterfront deck and dock, there are four chairs (2 lounge chairs) for you to use and relax by the water.
There are no sleeping facilities for children as the unit suits a single person or a couple only (the unit is about 260 square feet). There is no formal closet but the unit has hooks on backs of doors.
Bus stop is across the street outside the main house driveway. Flatts Village is less than a 1/4 mile walk to restaurants, aquarium, post office and tiny convenience store. Bus tokens can be purchased from the post office. There are many other bus routes that run through Flatts so getting around is never a problem.
Arrangements can be made for maid service/change of linens (for an extra charge) for stays longer than 1 week.
Nearest beaches are: Gibbet’s Beach in Flatts which is within walking distance, Shelley Bay – a calm and tranquil North Shore Beach and John Smith’s Bay which is on the South Shore, with deep soft sand, gentle surf and an excellent swimming and snorkeling beach. Both are both 5 minutes by bike. Flatts Village is in walking distance and there you can do a little shopping, or have a casual meal The bus stop is just beyond the garden gate. Flatts Village now has a pizzeria, take-out cafe, Italian restaurant and of course the 1926 Aquarium with its attached museum and mini-zoo. Nearest convenience store is Twins Variety on Flatts Hill (which is walking distance and open early and till late evenings), and Harrington Hundreds Grocery – 5 minutes on bike. The Specialty Inn on South Road at Collectors Hill is a 5 minute moped ride for family style eating in unpretentious but comfortable surroundings.
Harrington Sound is ringed with gorgeous homes overlooking the placid waters of the sound. One can snorkel comfortably there or play with the parasail company that operates in the Sound. There are fine dining establishments nearby such as the renowned Tom Moore’s Tavern and the Swizzle Inn for drinks and snacks. The Perfume Factory and the Bermuda Glass-Blowing Studio are nearby as well. For leisurely tours on your mopeds exploring the glorious country side of
As far as boat rentals, there are no boat rentals on Harrington Sound. The closest place would be Blue Hole Water Sports out of Grotto Bay Hotel.
Tuckers Town with its spectacular homes is always fun.The old town of St.Georges is only 15 minutes away and well worth a couple of days exploration: many fine buildings from the 1600’s still stand and include handsome old homes, museums and churches. Make time to swim at Tobacco Bay and Clearwater Beach when in the St.Georges area: both are simply lovely. We so look forward to seeing you at our pretty waterside cottage. It’s the last word in romantic escapes.
