We love to meet and chat with our guests. It's your vacation and we're happy to interact to what ever level you desire. We've had everything from just a quick hello, to basically having family living with us. When the chemistry is right, we've made some very long lasting friendships. Again, this is YOUR vacation, and we will always respect your privacy.
Rosemont Ave is considered a very prestigious neighborhood. Large homes and lots on the edge of town has made this a very desirable destination for frequent business guests as well as tourists looking to be close to the amenities of town.

Other Things to Note
Tell us what you'd like to do and we'll try our best to make it happen.
As this apartment is part of our home, please keep the noise down after 9pm; we'll try to do the same.
The kitchenette is perfect for heating up a snack in the microwave, toasting a morning bagel, or making a cup of coffee or tea. However, there is no hotplate, hob, or burner (depending on what you call it at home). Cooking is not permitted. There are however, great restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Ascots, an amazing restaurant, has been featured on Food Network and is less than 300 feet away.
Please ensure windows and door are closed and locked when you leave. As Bermuda has some of the most expensive electricity in the world, please make sure lights and air conditioning are turned off when you are not in. Due to the stone construction of the house, even in the hottest day of summer, the room will stay cool if the windows and blinds are closed and the AC turned off.
If you need to do a load of laundry, please just ask and we'd be happy to do a wash/dry for $10.00 per load.
Beach towels are in the room (the red ones). Please do not take the white towels to the beach. There is a fresh water hose beside the drive way. If you've been to the beach, please hose off shoes, feet and other sandy bits. Sand is very hard on the flooring.
Instructions for the WiFI access are on the table in the room.
Smoking; We have no issues with smoking, just not in the room. This includes electronic smokes. Smoking is allowed up on the driveway away from the house. I'm happy to put out an ash tray and even a patio chair for those who wish.
Regarding flight issues: Since our experience with Sandy, we've come up with some policies regarding flight delays/cancellations due to weather and other unforeseen conditions. If your flight is canceled and you cant get out; no problem. Chances are the next guest wasn't able to arrive so there is no issue; you are welcome to stay. We will only charge $25.00 per night which basically covers expenses. We have no intention on profiting on someones misfortune! Come and see us and we'll assist in any way to get your travel sorted. In the unlikely event, that you cant get out and the next guest arrives; we will honor the reservation for the new guest. In order to accommodate the departing guest, we will make every humanly possible effort to find alternative accommodation. There are properties within 200 yards from here that should be able to assist. No one will be left without (URL HIDDEN) may not be 5 star!
Anyhow, I just wanted to address the issue and HOPE it doesn't happen often!
