We were delighted with our experience with this listing! The cottage was immaculate and included everything we needed. The location is close to a number of lovely beaches and also has easy access to bus routes. Our hosts provided us with all sorts of information about what to do and see in Bermuda. They went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay and we were touched by their kindness and care. We would highly recommend this listing.
Thanks Heidi.. we so much enjoyed meeting you and Pat. Come back again to Bermuda when the sun is out. So sorry you experienced such horrendous weather.
Just looking at the listing picture makes us wish we were back at Mike and Leslie's guest house. What a wonderful experience!
Their guest house was everything that they described. Our 22 month old daughter took advantage of the high chair, the toys, books, and puzzles, and the porta-crib. And, she loved the occasional visit from Mike and Leslie's sweet dog. We cooked breakfast and a couple of dinners there, which was easy as the grocery store was just a short walk down the road.
We walked several times to Warwick Long Beach, which only took 15 minutes. Also within walking distance were Horseshoe Beach and the lighthouse. The bus stop was a stone's throw from the back door, which was convenient for travels to places at greater distances. And Mike and Leslie left bus tickets to get us started on our travels!
The neighbors were kind, and Mike and Leslie were as available as necessary to answer questions. We did indeed feel like we had privacy, though - it was a perfect balance for our family.
We'll highly recommend their guest cottage; we hope that we are lucky enough to stay there again in the future!
Thanks for leaving such a wonderful review. Michael & I truly enjoyed hosting you and your daughter and would loved to see you come back to visit again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cozy and comfort cottage. Lesley and Michael were great hosts, always there to answer any questions. The cottage was as advertised, spotlessly clean and well equiped.Location was good for us to travel the island by bus and ferry. It would not suit anyone wanting to be really close to a beach.
Michael kept us supplied with bananas and advocados fresh from the garden, they tasted so good.
We will rent the cottage again if we return to Bermuda.
Thankyou Lesley and Michael for helping us to enjoy your Island.
Thanks Jean. Michael & I enjoyed having you stay.
This was our first AirBnB experience, and it was excellent. Michael & Lesley were wonderful hosts, and put a great deal of care and pride into their cottage.
The location is excellent. Very close (1-2 minute walk) to a grocery store, a few local restaurants, and a bus stop that goes between Dockyard and Hamilton. A short walk (15-20 minutes) to the South Shore beaches. Caution: the shortest walk involves going over a hill. In the alternative, you can walk down the main road ("Middle Road") towards the Fairmont hotel, then take the free hotel trolley up and over the hill to Horseshoe Bay.
The cottage itself is immaculate. Very nice, clean decor. The bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed, and there's a futon in the living room if you really want to pack in the people. Air conditioning throughout the cottage. Full kitchen, complete with cookware, microwave, etc. There is also a television with basic cable, blu ray DVD player, and a bunch of DVDs, books, and even a few kids' toys.
And we can even attest to the cottage's sturdy construction! We were at the cottage during Hurricane Gonzalo. While winds gusted to 140-some-odd miles per hour and trees came toppling down around us, the cottage didn't so much as shake. Moreover, although the power went out all across the island, Michael was quick to fire up a generator so we had power immediately. After the storm passed, thanks to Michael and Lesley's hard work, the house and the grounds were all immaculate. (One couldn't say the same about the rest of the island.)
Michael and Lesley are very gracious hosts. They have thoughtfully collected a lot of helpful information that is neatly organized in the cottage. Since the cottage is attached to their house, it is very easy to get in touch with them for any questions or help you need. (But, to be sure, there is an abundance of privacy at the cottage, in case you'd rather keep to yourself.) We were happy to spend some downtime (... and not just during the hurricane!) chatting with them and getting to know them.
All in all, I heartily recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Bermuda, whether you're an experienced or first-time visitor.
Michael and Lesley are wonderful hosts! They are experienced and it shows. Right after reservations were made they contacted us with a lot of good information. It made traveling to their country for the first time very easy.
The cottage is IMACUTELY clean. I didn't get to ask them if they did their own house keeping, but things could not have been cleaner or more tidy.
The couple was very nice to welcome us when we arrived. They have collected a lot of good information about Bermuda and it's local food and activities. Lesley spent some time explaining where things where and how to get around the area. Her knowledge is truly an asset.
The house is equipped very well. The internet was peppy (fast enough to stream Netflix, but just barely). The kitchen had all the cookware and seasoning you could need. We had no problem cooking quite a few meals to help save some money. The outdoor patio is semi private and very quiet. It was nice night time star gazing.
The location is down a long shared driveway. The beach is a 10-15 min walk down a “Tribal Trail” road. It is also near the “Railroad Trail”. There is a supermarket and bus stop within a 2 min walk. We only had one issue with the location. Walking any where required going down a narrow busy street that has no sidewalk or even a shoulder. This was only for a minor short section of the walk, not the whole way. Otherwise the location is very convenient.
We would recommend this AirBNB to anyone looking to visit Bermuda. Especially couples.
This was our second year in Bermuda and will continue coming annually when possible. The cottage and it's location were perfect and will always be our place to stay. Michael and Lesley created a space that left us wanting for nothing. It was truly an extension of their home. The cottage was spacious and functioned as a house. Everything is exactly as they describe it to be. No surprises.
My Dad and I spent a week at Michael’s and Lesley’s cottage. It was absolutely perfect. Michael and Lesley were an immense help with great local connections and information that helped plan our week. They are wonderful people and have thought of everything a guest might need (right down to the beach towels to use for beach excursions). The grocery store was within walking distance and we were able to get food to make breakfasts and several dinners in the well appointed kitchen (once again they thought of everything down to the ice cream scoop). The air conditioning kept the cottage at just the right temperature. I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to come back to the cottage at the end of a busy day – it really felt like coming home and Michael and Lesley were always happy to answer questions to help us with our trip. I will definitely stay there again (my wife feels that while a father/son trip was a great thing to do for my father – we need to come back for a husband/wife trip!)
THANK YOU Micheal and Lesley!!!
My husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon at Michel & Lesley's cottage. The cottage was clean, organized, and tastefully decorated. Our hosts were so kind and hospitable, we really enjoyed meeting them, and they were very helpful with answering any questions we had. Our location was close to some of Bermuda's most beautiful beaches. We rented a moped and rode to the beach everyday, a short 5 minute ride. Easy access to the bus and ferry was also a plus. Overall, a great experience!
Our trip to Bermuda, and stay at Michael and Lesley Archer's Cozy and Comfy Cottage, completely exceeded our expectations! The Archers were so welcoming: recommending a great taxi service from the airport (that even provided a quick stop at the grocery market), graciously sharing bus tickets with us, and even offering us fresh eggs from their chickens!
We found the guest cottage to be perfectly suited to all our needs: a well-appointed kitchen had everything from stemless wine glasses to two different coffee makers; the bedroom was tucked in the back with plenty of closet space; and the location was wonderful. Located in the center of the island--off the tourist track--yet, right near a bus stop to access Hamilton and the Dockyard; and within walking distance to one of the prettiest beaches on the island, Warwick Long Bay (that we had mostly to our selves each day!). This guest cottage is truly a hidden gem! We can't wait to return!
This is a fantastic place to spend time in Bermuda. We were 100% satisfied and grateful to the hosts for providing this cottage for rent. It is amply appointed and very spacious. We were just two people, but it could be nice for a family travelling with 1 or 2 small children as well. Hosts are very gracious, helpful, fun to talk to and even shared some of their home-grown bananas and eggs! What a treat! If you are visiting Bermuda on a budget, consider taking advantage of the apartment's full-size kitchen as the supermarket is just down the road a piece. The neighborhood is quiet and very safe with very easy access to the public bus stop. A short and scenic trail walk brings you right out to Warwick Long Bay Beach which is just tremendous! WiFi access was great and cable TV. VERY clean as well. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
