From the moment we arrived at Karen and Richards we were greeted with a wonderful and most thoughtful host experience. Our flight arrived at about 9 and we had to stop by the grocery store on the way so arrived closer to 10pm at the apartment. Karen was there waiting and gave us the most thorough tour! Karen and Richard also surprised us with a bottle of champagne in an ice bucket and champagne flutes to celebrate our wedding that was taking place the weekend after our arrival! They were so understanding and accommodating with our up in the air arrangements for the wedding and last minute requests. The apartment was bigger and more spectacular than it is in photographs and has everything that you could want or need. Karen and Richard offered to help with anything we needed prior or during the wedding and were the very best of hosts. We could not ask for anything more! Also, the towel warmer in the bathroom is incredible among many other conveniences within the apartment. Once again, the view of the ocean and the sunsets is breathtaking. We would come and stay with Karen and Richard in a heartbeat! Also, Karen and Richard have a wonderful driver they recommended, Melvin, who really took care of us and our wedding guests and made them feel more at home in Bermuda.
We have just returned from a perfect week in Richard and Karen's beautiful oceanfront apartment. Richard and Karen went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was memorable. Every detail in both the apartment and about the island was covered. The apartment is a home away from home with everything that you could need and more. Clean and modern with a view to take your breath away. There really is no trick photography. The sea really is that blue and the parrot fish really do swim around the reef underneath you.
We will definitely be back.
The waterfront apt was perfect for a short weekend getaway for my boyfriend and I. Richard had arranged for his go-to taxi driver to meet us at the airport, which was super helpful. He even made a quick stop for us on the way to the apt so we can get something to eat.
Once we got to the apt, Richard came out to greet us and show us around. He even offered to take us to a nearby supermarket, so we would have something to eat the next morning.
The apt has everything you would need for your stay. The washer/dryer came in really handy. We didn't think we'd need it for such a short stay, but it ended up raining pretty hard the last day so we had to wash our rain soaked clothes.
The location is not too far from the major tourist attractions. The map can be a bit deceiving but it's a fairly small island. We rented a scooter to get around town. What an experience.. You have to go up a steep hill from the main road, then turn into a narrow road after to get to the house. So if you're renting a scooter, be careful! Other than that, you can get to Hamilton and the Royal Navy Dockyard in about 20-30 mins. Quite convenient! And the view of the ocean from the back of the apt is spectacular! Even on a cloudy day!
The apartment is just as pictured, no trick photography here. Just a beautiful and peaceful location on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The neighborhood is friendly and the location offers a restful and private location - only the sounds of surf and sea.
The apartment is tastefully outfitted with a wonderful master suite - no compromises made there at all. The apartment is equipped completely - on days the beach towel can't go on the line - there's a washer/dryer. Richard's suggested local driver was informative and punctual - and provided a wealth of local information.
All in all - a perfect location that we look forward to returning to. 2km north and you are at Whale Bay beach - 2km south and you are at Church Bay beach. A little further east and the unique cove at Horseshoe Bay is a favorite. Bus stops are under 10 minutes and take you west to the Dockyards, mid-island for Hamilton and east to St Georges.
This was a much appreciated and picture-perfect location for our Bermuda getaway.
An absolute slice of heaven...it is difficult for me to imagine a more exquisite spot on this already exquisite island.
Richard and Karen were wonderful hosts. They helped arrange a car for us to and from the airport...provided a detailed guide highlighting the essential food/entertainment/attraction options...were friendly and helpful in our interactions without being the least bit intrusive.
The space itself is without flaw...clean, well-maintained and appointed with all the trimmings of any five-star hotel. not that one is want to spend much actual time inside. not with that view.
a note...the space is somewhat removed (as much as that's possible on a small island) and set atop a steep hill. my companion and myself stayed three nights and found no need for a scooter, though "walking-distance" for us might be a bit more than most. the rail-trail is a two minute walk away and makes pedestrian travel around the island very convenient...the bus system efficient with a stop right at the base of the hill, but for those less-inclined for a hike, want to head to St. George, or making an extended stay should probably consider a scooter.
all and all, we very much look forward to our next stay.
All in the details! All about the views! Going way beyond the average rental standards, Richard and Karen have created something truly special with their oceanfront apartment. Comfortable, high-end finishes and amenities throughout the immaculately clean and tastefully designed apartment. Stay here if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, retreat-style experience. Richard and Karen made us feel very welcome and were most helpful and accommodating. We had everything we needed and more. Can't wait to return!
The apartment was magnificent and Karen and Richard could not have been better hosts. The pool and the view are delightful. I agree with everything that everyone else said.
Richard and Karen were extremely nice hosts! The home was a wonderful place to be in, tastefully furnished and finely equipped with crockery, washing supplies etc.
I had accidentally left my passport in their place when I left for the airport and they were extremely kind to rush all the way to catch up with me at the airport to give me the passport (if not I would have missed my flight!) Thank you Richard and Karen
Richard, Karen and family are amazing hosts. The apartment is modern, very well decorated and contains everything you need to enjoy your time in Bermuda. They have really thought of every little detail. The kitchen is well stocked with very nice glassware, china and everything you need to cook at home. If you do want to eat out they have provided an excellent guidebook with local restaurants with their own mini review which we found really helpful in planning our evenings.
The view is outstanding. Perched on a cliff with an amazing view of the ocean. It is very quiet and a perfect place to enjoy the sunset over the sea, and the best view of the stars I've seen in a long while.
Richard and Karen really know the island and were very helpful in recommending beaches which they like and helped us to find some less tourist filled places to relax. They were nice enough to drop us off at the nearest supermarket when we arrived to get our selves sorted for our week ahead.
We can not recommend this place enough and we were sad to leave it behind today. If you want a quiet, modern, clean and very welcoming place to spend your holiday then this is the place to stay!

Karen, Richard and their girls could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Our experience at their contemporary oceanfront apartment was wonderful. The view of ocean in the day and the sky full of stars at night made this place very special. The apartment's location was perfect, my girlfriend and I rented a scooter for the week and were able to adventure around very easily. The apartment made us feel right at home. It was very clean, comfortable and well designed. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean wasn't half bad either :) I have already recommended Karen & Richard's home to many people and we cannot wait to return!
