Interaction with Guests
Like you I am a world traveler and know that a great stay in any country includes cultural immersion. I enjoy meeting people from any country, creed, or ethnic walk of life and would be happy to chat about my island home and suggest where you can go and how to get there depending on what you would like to do. Feel free to ask. However I also respect privacy and know that sometimes you want to get away from it all and do your own thing too.
I hope you enjoy your stay at Astwood Close, which is a neighbourhood comprised of a branch of cousins from the Astwood family clan. Our family name in Bermuda dates back over three centuries with our European ancestors hailing from Great Britain, integrating with African slaves and trading salt between Bermuda, Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean, and North America.
All tourist attractions are easily accessible from our central island location. Bermuda’s public transportation is the most reasonably priced mode of transport. You can purchase a book of 15 tickets (zone 3 for $25 or zone 14 for $37.50) and use them on the bus or ferry. Look up Bermuda bus schedules (and ferry schedules) on line. We do have them available at the Efficiency Studio for guests to use. Alternatively Oleander Cycles rents mopeds at a discount to our guests. Check out their website on line too. 1 USD ~ 1 BD and we drive on the left. ( ‿ )

It is the courteous thing to do.

Hello there! Here I am showing the beautiful panoramic view of St. George's
Harbour at the eastern end of the islands of Bermuda to a guest visitor.
I like gardening and you will notice the kitchen garden and other plants on
your way to the Efficiency Studio tucked away. Don't be afraid to ask for
fresh vegetables! We also have a peach tree that gives juicy peaches when
I am very athletic and run early mornings at least twice a week. You are
welcome to join me if this is your thing. I also like to dance and minister
in dance weekly at my church. You are welcome to join me at services on a
Wednesday evening or Sunday morning, but again the choice is yours.
Well that's it about me for now,...... you will have to learn the rest
when you get here : )
