Our 1 bdrm apartment is located on the Rockmore Estate behind the mainhouse. It is on 3 acres in the Smiths highlands, near John Smiths beach, golf, aquarium and Hamilton. Guests have access to pool, tennis court, trampoline, porches, hammocks and swings. Great place to chill out! Map is incorrect!
The apt is very private and has a private entrance to the outdoors. Next to it is a trampoline and a swing nearby for reading and relaxing. The bedroom has a king bed, and the open living kitchen has a daybed with a trundle suitable for a child, teenager or friend. The bathroom is ensuite to the bedroom.
Our outdoor amenities: the pool, tennis court, swings etc. are shared with other visitors staying. Guests can use the pool during 10 to 6 if the Pool House is rented so as not to disturb them. Our private quarters in the mainhouse are off limits. You have your own private kitchen and a grocery nearby.
I like to check in daily with guests to help with their vacation planning, and answer any concerns. I do respect guests privacy.
I love that Rockmore is conveniently located to most everything on the island: grocery stores, Hamilton, hospital, beaches, Crystal Caves, Swizzle Inn, you name it. It also is up high so there are nice cross breezes. The lot size is unusually large for Bermuda so there is a sense of space, and of being in a rural setting.
You most likely will want to hire scooters. There are buses that are within a 2 to 3 minute walk away. Or you could hire a taxi for tours.
There are lots of birds on the property including bluebirds, cardinals and even swifts, and other migrating birds. Bermuda is semi-tropical and also has bugs,ants & toads, so be warned...we keep a low insecticide environment.

Andrea and her family were the best hosts. The Rockmore Estate is beautiful. You have to see it in person - the photos don't do it justice. Location is a perfect for exploring Bermuda.
The Apt Unit is a perfect size - between the day bed in the living room/kitchen and the king size in the bedroom - you can comfortably sleep 3 people here. The bathroom and shower were spotless. The kitchen had brand new appliances for the times we wanted to cook. The fridge and freezer were big enough to hold food, beer and cold drinking water.
If you're into TV they have that too - with a ton of channels. Bring your HDMI hook up for your ipad and you can watch movies that way too. The WiFi is fast but you have to head toward the front of the property to catch a signal. Not a huge deal and she mentioned that they are working on extending it to all the units soon.
The pool is AMAZING! Big enough to do some lap swimming to shake that morning hangover but deep enough to practice your cannonball. Plus there are lounge chairs if you just want to hang.
During my 7 day stay - Andrea arranged for scooters to be dropped off at the property when we arrived. Lent us snorkel gear so we didn't have to rent any. Called for Taxis when we couldn't get them & provided great recommendations for local sight seeing. All this and we barely saw her. Her son's are polite and her husband was nice enough to get us a case of Tiger Beer for way cheaper than the grocery store. I can't say enough good things about her and Rockmore.
For anyone looking to visit Bermuda - STAY HERE!! You can save a ton and still get the amenities that the resorts charge an arm & a leg for. This is like a home away from home.
Oh Aaron, you have made me blush!!! What wonderful comments....come on back!!!! (Help me with the wifi extension--- I've got more Tiger Beers!) : ) Seriously, you are a lovely person and easy guest, you are always welcome here...I can't wait to see this turn into your local drop in spot for you and your friends!!
