I love that our neighbourhood is quiet and residential. Here you would very much be living as Bermudians do, enjoying our tropical gardens, pool and entertainment areas. Everywhere you go on the island you will see amazing ocean views, lush green vegetation and cute white roofed houses.
We are close to major bus routes that run early to late and main roads for getting anywhere on the island easily.

It was a pleasure to stay at the Natalia. The cottage itself is large and comfortable, essentially a small private apartment in terms of amenities. It sits alongside the pool, across from the owners' home and next to a lovely patio and garden.
Inside, it has an open floor plan with separate eating and sleeping nooks; good water pressure in the shower; music and TV; and a soft mattress. The cottage is quiet despite being close to the pool and house, and the street it's on it fairly small and so also quiet.
Mike and Sharon offer their extensive local expertise on where to eat, swim, snorkel, jog, whatever - all advice that's worth taking. They're experienced hosts and are professional with their guests. They even provide a custom-made guidebook in the cottage that has everything you really need, including bus schedules (surprisingly hard to find, otherwise) and short cuts to the beach.
It's a good location to explore from, close to Middle Road (and several bus routes) and about a 20-minute walk to the excellent southeastern-shore beaches. There's a supermarket nearby, and a decent local restaurant and ice-cream place as well. Overall, we were very happy with our stay.
Myself and Lars felt very relaxed, comfortable and welcome. Handy little pack for local information was provided, and they provided information for cabs and supermarkets prior to our Bermuda arrival. Keys were ready and Mike helped us to arrange a few Diving trips with a local company. We joined Mike & Sharon for a drink one evening and very easy to get on with, we won't forget our heads in the morning in a hurry and will definitely return...which we don't normally do but we just enjoyed our whole time.
I feel like the listing photos and description very accurately represent Natalia Pool Cottage. I would recommend staying there to anyone and would want to stay there again when we come back to Bermuda (hopefully soon!). The cottage and grounds are beautiful and peaceful. There's a nice table to eat outside and chairs right outside the cottage for lounging in the sun. They also have outdoor speakers so you can listen to music while you relax or eat. We often had the entire patio/pool area to ourselves. That being said, everyone we met while staying there was very polite and friendly. Their two dogs are very sweet and well-behaved, too. Inside the cottage is very nicely decorated and actually bigger than I thought it would be. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes for cooking - they give you dish soap and some basic spices too. They changed out our bath towels mid-week which was nice. Bring your own toiletries to make sure you have what you need. Inside, they immediately make you feel welcome with fresh flowers and a manual on the cottage, property and things to do in Bermuda. We often referred to the manual for our day trips and excursions. The manual actually references a free tour in Hamilton that we had not previously heard about. Mike and Sharon are great with providing additional references for airport pick-ups, tours, restaurants, etc. Two restaurants in the manual we loved were Mad Hatters and Tempest - YUM! I will say the walk to the beach is a bit of an adventure hike - especially climbing through the brush to get to the railroad trail. It wasn't terrible just more of a trek than we thought it would be. The beach is worth the walk though and the trails were quiet - we only saw one other person on our walk. However, if you had a scooter or took the bus, it's not a bad drive. We fell in love with Warwick Long Bay Beach and Jobson's Cove Beach. The sand is like pink sugar and the water is amazing. Plus the beaches are so quiet - we had Warwick to ourselves one day. I would avoid Horseshoe or do a quick pit-stop there to say you went and then walk to Jobson's Cove or Warwick Long Bay. We didn't rent scooters and were fine walking (not a lot of sidewalks but cars and scooters do move over) and the bus. The bus stop is a downhill walk from their house and really very close. There is a supermarket with a few restaurants within walking distance as well. We honestly felt like we did fine without the scooter. We can't say enough good things about this rental and Bermuda in general. It's the only island we've returned to and I can wholeheartedly say we want to go back again. People are so welcoming; there is a lot to do; it's safe and easy to get around. Thank you Mike and...
My husband and I loved Natalia Pool Cottage! I can't recommend it enough. The cottage itself was clean and well stocked with a full kitchen, dishwasher, even things like scissors, plastic bags, and a binder full of information on the island. The grounds were gorgeous, it was like staying in a garden. It was very private. Mike and Sharon were very nice, friendly and helpful. Everything we needed was provided, including snorkel gear, a beach umbrella, and cooler. A maid came once a week. The main house also has two other guest apartments for a couple of people each. While we were there we barely saw anyone else, everyone was quiet and polite. I would recommend Natalia for couples that want quiet relaxation. The weather was great, 85-90 degrees and sunny every day!
Best beach nearby - Warwick Long Bay. We were there in the beginning of July and it was almost empty. It's gorgeous, pink sand, waves, and great snorkeling.
Avoid - Horseshoe Bay, it was so crowded we turned around and left.
I recommend - renting a scooter as car rentals aren't available on the island. The beach was too far for us to walk although it's possible. We used Elbow Beach Cycles, they were great and sent a free shuttle to bring us to pick up the scooter. They also picked the scooter up for free on our last day. I also recommend setting up a taxi with Arthur (as was recommended by Mike and Sharon), it was great having a taxi waiting for us when we arrived.
Check out - Crystal Caves, Blue Hole Park, Stonehole Bay Beach, Harbor Nights street fair in Hamilton (summer)
We loved Natalia Pool Cottage and would definitely stay there again!
Mike and Sharon were awesome! All the info we needed for our stay was in a handy guide they created, and they were super friendly and helpful with any other questions that we had. Being outside of town I wasn't sure how well everything was going to work out. But even without a moped we could walk to the beach, the bus stop, a supermarket, bakery, etc... which was great. Would definitely recommend this place!
The Natalia Pool Cottage was a perfectly lovely getaway.
Mike and Sharon have created a clean, comfortable, safe, relaxing environment with all the amenities you could need.
Spacious kitchen w/ full sized fridge, oven, range, coffee maker, etc.
Clean bathroom w/ nice shower.
Living room w/ couches, chairs, and a stereo system w/ auxiliary input for computer, phone, iPod.
Bedroom has comfortable bed and plenty of storage including hanging storage w/ lots of hangers.
Mike and Sharon provide a super helpful guidebook w/ advice ranging from restaurants and beaches to taxis and buses. They also provide maps and some snorkeling gear.
They've thought of everything!
We also really enjoyed the pool and the grill.
I'd recommend renting a scooter - very easy to get to the beaches.
Thanks again, Mike and Sharon, for a great weekend. We have NO complaints, and would recommend your pool cottage anytime.
Had an awesome time at Mike & Sharon's poolside cottage…the space was perfect, just enough room to spread out but still feel cosy. They made Ashley & I feel very welcome and their two sons Reese and Ryan were extremely helpful with any requests….Reese cut up a swim noodle to make a back rest for the scooter we hired….brilliant!
We look forward to a return trip…...

About the Host, Mike & Sharon
Mike says: From Bermuda - diving, fishing, photography, relaxing, eating, wine, socializing etc... all things we like to do ...!! Ask Me about special rates for Scuba Diving at Bermuda's 5 Star PADI Dive Shop... We can also point out great dive spots for SCUBA or snorkeling...
Sharon says: We live next to the three apartments that we rent out and really enjoy meeting our guests and helping them navigate our Island. We have been renting to visitors for over 12 years but we love Airbnb now!
We have 2 cute well socialized dogs, 2 older boys and a lovely tropical garden, a parrot and a pool.
There is so much to do in Bermuda especially for a country with only 60,000 inhabitants. Where ever you go you will meet interesting and friendly people from all walks of life. They are all keen to help you have a lovely vacation.
We have a great bus and ferry transport system to get around, there is the alternative of scooter hire for those who would like the freedom of a bike, as well as trails for walking and running. The beaches are within walking distance and are amazing!
We both enjoy sharing our island home with our guests and are on hand if you need anything.
