Perfectly appointed and well-situated, discover for yourself why the cottage has consistently been the most highly recommended vacation rental in beautiful Bermuda!
Dean Hall Nursery is an architectural award-winning, lovingly-restored Bermuda Cottage that is the ideal holiday retreat.
With a spacious open plan, the perfectly appointed cottage is a welcoming home away from home.
Dean Hall Nursery - your home in Bermuda.
The cottage comes complete with fresh linens (including beach towels), toiletries, a well-equipped kitchen, onsite laundry facilities and all the comforts of home. If self-catering, you can get basic food provisions from the corner grocery on arrival (supplemented by three larger groceries nearby) and will no doubt enjoy the gas barbecue and outdoor entertainment areas.
Interaction with Guests
The owners and their family live next door and will ensure that you'll have a memorable Bermuda experience.
THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: Nestled in a garden setting in picturesque Flatts, the Nursery is close to Bermuda's number one attraction, the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo.
With nearby restaurants, corner grocery and an adjacent bus stop, you're perfectly positioned for your vacation in paradise.
GETTING THERE: Airport transfer arrangements will be made on your behalf.
GETTING AROUND: There is a bus stop at the end of the cottage driveway and tickets or passes can be purchased at Flatts Post Office across the road. 5 minutes down the hill there is access to two more bus lines running at 15 minute intervals.
For the adventurous and experienced I recommend Elbow Beach Cycles as your source for scooters.
By prior arrangement and for a small fee ($15 per day, per bike), pedal bikes can be rented from Stephen & Faith. Helmets and locks included.
Other Things to Note
EXTRA GUESTS: If booking for three or four, the third and fourth persons are accommodated on a pull-out sofa in the same room for an extra charge of $30 per person, per night.

13. Your leftover fresh food items will be given to those in need and certain dry items can be re-purposed for future guests; and, in observing all of the above,
14. You'll leave the Nursery in the perfect condition you found it and find yourselves better off for your wonderful Bermuda experience.
THANK YOU - ENJOY YOUR STAY.
We had a wonderful week at the cottage. It. was just perfect, very welcoming, cozy, comfortable and clean. All of the comforts of home!! A full sized refrigerator/freezer, oven, dishwasher, full sized washer and dryer and barbecue grill. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies you may need, town is just a few bus stops away. Stephen and Faith made us feel very welcome. They made the arrangements for our trips to and from the airport with Wayne and made a reservation at Rustico’s for the day we arrived. Sad to say we are back in the freezing cold (-27C) and missing beautiful Bermuda. We will be back to stay again, Fay and Doug.
Such a great experience-I travel a lot and both my fiancee and me are pretty picky, but EVERYTHING was well-though through. On arrival in Bermuda, Stephen arranged to have friendly cabdriver Wayne pick us up at the airport and took us right to the door. Stephen and Faith met us on arrival at the cottage and showed us around- they couldn't have been nicer. The cottage was absolutely beautiful- just like the pictures and they though of just about everything. The place feels like home- and with washer/dryer and wifi, it was easy to relax sitting on the front or side porch. While the weather was cold for Bermuda, it was WAY warmer than in NYC, and we both look forward to coming back in the future!
Stephen and Faith provided a beautiful "home away from home" experience with their Bermuda cottage. The cottage is totally modern and updated with the highest quality appliances and utensils. The cottage is complete, nothing has been overlooked. Stephen and Faith, as hosts, were perfect. They provided support and assistance from arrival to departure. Taxi service to and from the airport was prearranged. We can totally recommend staying at this lovely Bermuda cottage.

Excellent house, really well located and very clean!! Stephen and his wife are really nice, they even offered us a bottle of wine and some chocolats!! Good option to stay in Bermuda!
From the cab ride to the chocolates left on the table, our host could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. We found a bottle of wine waiting for us along with a reservation at a local restaurant.
Great host- very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was beautifully appointed. Excellent location for exploring Bermuda. Getting around by bus and ferry was convenient. We highly recommend Dean Hall Nursey.

The Dean Hall Nursery was exquisitely decorated with quality linens, furniture, appliances and artwork. This cottage had a homey feeling unlike any hotel room. Dean Hall Nursery was spacious yet not too big. One feature that may seem trivial was the walk in closet. All of our clothes (ie mess) was in the huge walk in closet - leaving the main living area clutter free. Oh.. and all our laundry was clean when we left due to the modern washer and dryer located in the cottage. Little things like this made our stay even more enjoyable. Although there are no ocean views from the cottage - it is centrally located and near public transportation. We were able to hop on the bus and travel 20 minutes in either direction to each end of the island. We would definitely stay there again! Stephen was a gracious host and met us upon our arrival. He showed us around the place as well as walked us through the transit system and area maps. He also arranged for airport pick up - so we didn't have to arrange our own transport.
Live life to the fullest!
We have incurable wanderlust and have travelled to 40 countries between us. Our passion for different places, people and cultures has led us to share our guest cottage with the world and hopefully impart the special charm that is Bermuda.
