The apartment is part of a large house with a separate entrance and courtyard.
Within the apartment there is a separate bedroom with a queen size bed, two ample closets, heating and air conditioning, 42" flat screen TV with cable, plus an on demand feature for movies purchase, free WiFi and a telephone for local calls.
The separate living room can accommodate the third person on a pull-out love seat.

We do provide the following: Bath/ beach towels, hand soap, body wash and shampoo/ conditioner. Hair dryer and towel warmer racks.
Within the closets there are fresh linens, beach umbrella and chairs, iron and board.
Bus stops, fast ferry and local supermarket are but a five minute walk away (this is super great if you do not intend to rent a moped). Close to home, you will have the pleasure of exploring Horseshoe Bay and Warwick Long Bay ( 10 min. moped ride, or 20 min. local bus), Elbow Beach is walking distance (20 minutes).
After a long day of exploring sit and relax in the private courtyard with the gentle breeze, doze off to the trickling of the water falls from the fountain.
Cook your dinner on the newly purchased gas BBQ while sipping wine and listen to the tree frogs serenade the night away.
Don't feel like cooking there are many Fine dining restaurants close to home: Fourways Inn is just down the street (Jacket for the gents please). The Blu Bar and Grill served up excellent food and has gorgeous views. A five minutes moped ride from the apartment. Dine at Beau Rivage at Newstead and enjoy the stunning view of Hamilton. Also a five minutes ride from apartment.
There are also nice roadside cafes for breakfast or lunch which are very easy on the pocket. Fourstar Pizzas and Grill, Island cuisine to name a few.
The Railway trail is but a 10 minutes walk from the apartment. There you can jog, walk, bike at your leisure and enjoy the peaceful scenery.
Golf courses: There are four golf courses nearby for you to play: Riddell’s Bay, The Belmont Golf Course, the Fairmont Princess Golf Club and the Port Royal Golf Course are all within 10 minutes of the property and each offers its own unique challenge.
Accessing the beaches and restaurants is easy either by bus or by moped. The apartment has easy access to the to ferry which has a direct route to the charming village of Somerset where shops and cafes makes lingering for a while a very pleasant diversion. The remarkable renovated installation at the Naval Dockyard property (a British Navy base built in the early 1820’s) has created a plaza and shopping concourse as well as a series of excellent museums, pubs, artists workshops, book stores and the like as well as the hugely popular DOLPHIN QUEST operation. These shops and museums operations are all neatly contained in spectacularly restored historic buildings dotted throughout a park setting on the furthest west end of the island. Fast ferries and buses depart and arrive from the Dockyard facility all day long. The views from The Commissioner’s House are jaw dropping as you can see from one end of the island all the way to the other, with ocean liners sedately negotiating the Two Rock Passage , the sole opening in the reefs large enough to provide safe access to Kings Wharf in Somerset or Hamilton Harbour. A visit to Bermuda without seeing Dockyard would not be complete.
Daniels Head Beach Park and Somerset Long Bay are quiet beaches you will want to explore...as well as The Railway Trail, a meandering paved pathway through the countryside throughout the island you can explore on foot or by moped . The Trail is the land right of way owned by the government for long defunct railway system. No cars or trucks are allowed upon it, so the amble will take you through beautiful park like settings overlooking the water and the interesting homes and gardens you would not otherwise notice.
The City of Hamilton also has lovely places to dine and shop, and in the summer months through to October, Harbour Nights on Front Street on Wednesday evenings is a sparkling outdoor market event. With live music, delicious food and unusual locally made items to buy, the street is shut to vehicular traffic and the better shops remain open. Everyone congregates happily til 10 pm. and then drifts off to window-shop, or investigate the night clubs, bars and cafes. The city is easily reached by bus, ferry or moped, with taxis available to whisk you away home at the end of the evening.
Interaction with Guests
Available to greet upon arrival and is only a phone call or a knock on the door when needed as we are on the property.
Centrally located in a private and safe neighborhood with easy access to two of Bermuda major road ways, Harbor and Middle road. Short five minutes walk to bus stops, fast ferry and Lindo's supermarket. Uncomfortable on a moped this location is perfect! With a moped you're perfectly positioned to explore beautiful Bermuda as Warwick is located in the middle of the island.
GETTING THERE: At the airport there are plenty of taxis, the drivers are the unofficial ambassador of Bermuda so enjoy the 15-20 minutes scenic ride to the apartment. The cost of the taxi ride to the apartment is approximately $37 prior to tipping.
Pre-arranged taxi can be made on your behalf, please make request and the cost is $50 to the taxi driver.
GETTING AROUND: There is a bus stop and fast ferry at the end of the road less than a 5 minutes walk. Tickets or passes can be purchased at Post Office or at the terminal. Adult fare is $3.00 per ticket, weekly pass is $56 and monthly pass is $54. The bus lines run at 15 minute intervals. Operating schedules are available at the apartment.
For the adventurous and experienced I would recommend Oleander cycles ((website hidden)) as your source for scooter rental. It is a short 5 minutes drive from the apartment and Oleander does provide pickup and drop off. I can also get you there if it more convenient.
Other Things to Note
We have one very friendly Cocker spaniel, weighing 18 lbs. She does not have access to the rental apartment side. If ok with guests she will come and say hello but please do not feed her anything.
Please no smoking allowed inside the apartment, there is a designated area to "light up" outside.
Please turn off the air conditioning unit and lights when you go out.
Please conserve water - we only have what we catch on our roofs when it rains.
We allow small pets.
We expect our guest to be courteous and considerate.
Relax and enjoy Bermuda.
Lana was a wonderful hostess! She answered all our questions prior to arrival, helped to arrange for a taxi service to pick us up from the airport, and even had some fruit waiting for us in the fridge since we got in so late. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and given a key and quick instructions so we could head out for the evening. Everything we needed to know for our stay (home instructions, numbers to taxis, directions, etc.) was provided in a really helpful document Lana put together, and she was super accessible to answer any questions we had during our stay. The apartment was wonderful! The bed was comfy and the kitchen perfectly appointed with everything we needed to cook a few meals at home. The location was perfect as well, close to the bus stop, supermarket and the ferry. We can rave enough about how wonderful our stay was with Lana!!
Lana is a very welcoming host. She corresponded well before and provided everything needed while there. The space is comfortable and clean. The location is convenient to the ferry and bus. Wireless works well and TV has good selection of stations. Fully recommend.
Staying with Lana was GREAT !!! Definitely would come back . We only stayed for a day because our hotel didn't have space for a day but we wouldn't have mind staying here a bit longer . She was very helpful , very hospitable and provided us with everything we needed :)
We enjoyed the location of Lana's private space. Very clean and comfortable for 2. It was close to bus and ferry stops. We enjoyed using the ferry to trip into Hamilton. Lana made the check in process very easy and made us feel welcome. She was quick to assist with directions if needed. Thanks
She kept in touch with us through the week to make sure we had everything we needed.
Thanks Henry for a great Private review and with your permission I have included here.
What Henry loved about your listing:
Wow! This was just perfect for us. A very clean apartment in an ideal location for exploring Bermuda. Close to the bus stop, the ferry stop,and the grocery store. Lana and her husband were very welcoming hosts who made us feel right at home. Even though it was the off-season, 50° and windy and stormy we had a beautiful week in Bermuda.
What Henry thought you could improve about the experience:
Can't think of a thing I would change. Exactly what we needed.
We really enjoyed our stay. Lana was very communicative prior to our stay and very helpful. The apartment was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. The outdoor space was the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or cocktail hour. Central location and very convenient given location to ferry,bus and grocery store. Would definitely recommend.
My husband and I had a lovely stay at Lana's apartment. Lana and her family were wonderful, very kind, and helpful. It was a privilege to stay at their home.
The apartment fits our needs: comfortable, clean, private, quiet, safe, and centrally located. The bus and ferry bring us into Hamilton and the beaches in minutes (10 min bus ride to Horseshoe Bay Beach!). It is also very convenient to go to Dockyard by bus. We didn't use a scooter at all. One thing to keep in mind, however, is the ceiling height. If you are very talk, it could be an issue.
Also a big plus is the proximity to Four Ways Inn (an incredible dining experience!) and Lindo's Family supermarket. Although we didn't use the outdoor area much, it was nice to have the option. We highly recommend staying here.
