Description from the owner
This gorgeous and luxurious villa has 4 bedrooms, 6 1/2 baths, very large living room, den/play-room with kitchen, dining room, as well as a separate studio. Guests have happily commented that it was always possible to find a quiet spot, even when the house was full of people.
The house is well suited to multi-generational and extended family holidays, as the bedrooms are not all located next to one another. In the main house there are 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms: the 1st master bedroom is separate, on the upper level. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms (turquoise and blue) are under the master, and accessed from the sitting room. The last two bedrooms ...Read more

Additional Location Information
The location is near Glebe Hill in Tuckers Town. There is a bus stop for the Number 1 bus route at the bottom of the hill (with service to Hamilton and St Georges). The house overlooks the Mid Ocean and Tuckers Point Golf Courses. Previous guests have remarked on the lovely views and nice location with proximity to the beaches and the airport. There is a small runaround car: a Suzuki R Wagon which is automatic. Its use is subject to indemnities from the potential drivers in case of accident/ damage etc. and can only be rented to persons holding a valid current Bermuda license. Please email for additional details.
The nearest public beach to the house is Baby Beach, which is great if one is looking for still water and safe playing for children. John Smiths Bay is also nearby in Smiths Parish, which is about a 10 minute drive from the property.
Tuckers Town is a much sought after location because of its wonderful golf courses, and large homes on spacious lots. This is a relatively recent development dating from the 1920’s when an Act of Parliament cleared the way to purchase property from the owners to consolidate enough land for a hotel and the famous golf course that launched Bermuda’s tourism industry. Prior to this time, Hamilton Parish was a quiet backwater with ship building, fishing, tobacco farms and an abundance of handsome old buildings that have been imaginatively re-incorporated into larger structures over the centuries. The Bermuda Architectural Heritage Series for Hamilton Parish and St George’s are books that will enhance your appreciation for the island and its remarkable heritage and a wonderful reference as you tour around.
Flatts Village is five minutes away by taxi- perhaps 15 minutes by bus (and is a delightful destination) with nice places to eat (Rustico’s is particularly enjoyed by locals and visitors alike), gift and other shops, and the Aquarium and Zoo with Geological Museum which are well worth a visit. The Village now features a pizzeria, take-out cafe, Italian restaurant, and the 1926 aquarium with attached museum and mini-zoo. Very close convenience store as well as groceries with spirits, treats and specialty foods like gluten-free.
Harrington Sound is ringed with gorgeous homes overlooking the placid waters of the sound. One can snorkel comfortably or play with the parasail company that operates in the Sound. There are fine dining establishments nearby such as the renowned Tom Moore’s Tavern and the Swizzle Inn for drinks and snacks. . A bit off the beaten path at Sayles Road is the home of the primary shipping tax collector, built in the style of the 1700’s with a dazzling collection of children’s toys, period furniture and medicinal garden.
Hiking is enjoyable at Ferry Reach and St. David’s Head. Also visit Spittal Pond Bird Sanctuary, the Railway Trail and the sumptuous parks of the south shore coastline, such as Cooper’s Island- the finest of which has to be Coopers Island- see details under the section “Beaches and Attractions” on our homepage. Be sure to visit the Irish Linen Shop on Front Street for many books on Bermuda and Attractions.
Wend your way along the South Shore all the way out to the fabled surf of Elbow Beach and then on heading west to Horseshoe Bay and Warwick Long Bay- it is a spectacular drive with astounding views over the ocean around every corner. The extraordinary thing about Bermuda is that the geography is so different from the rest of the Caribbean islands. Hilly, with sandstone cliffs, lush vegetation, turquoise and green waters, and pinkish sand beaches strewn with shells and coral, sheltered from the heavy ocean swells by a necklace of protective reefs. Not only do we have unique trees and shrubs and animals, we also have a history that predates that of the founding of the colonies in Virginia and an architectural style that has evolved to withstand heavy storms with an understated and refined charm that is lovely- white roofs and pastel walls, welcoming arms staircases and handsome front doors, shutters unlike any found elsewhere.
