C44. Poolside apartment with Patio and water views Southampton, Bermuda
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
The apartment is located in a superb residential neighborhood with commanding water views over the South Shore looking towards the The Reefs Resort, and near the Fairmont Southampton Hotel as well as a host of great roadside dining establishments such as Henry VIII pub, Tio Pepe, The Swizzle Inn and others.
Nearby Church Bay Beach (about an 8 minute walk away!) has wonderful rock formations offshore for spectacular snorkeling and powder soft sands for children to play in. This beach needs only a picnic and a good book to make it perfect…
The suite is within a mile and a half of the famous Gibbs Hill Lighthouse with its breathtaking views across the island and down the coast, towards an unparalleled collection of Bermuda’s loveliest beaches. The lighthouse has a very nice restaurant, which serves lunch and dinner, and has a gift shop too as a reward for all that stair climbing!
You can also walk along the South Shore Road to admire all of the South Shore beaches through Southampton Parish, Warwick Parish and on into Paget, or you can hike along the cliffs, camera in hand. Port Royal Golf Course, the Southampton Princess Course, Riddell’s Bay Golf Course and the Belmont Golf Course are all nearby along with the lovely BLU restaurant, overlooking most of the Great Sound. There are multiple hotels and restaurants for fine dining in the district (The Waterlot Inn as part of the Fairmont Southampton suite of fine dining establishments is particularly nice, as is The Reefs), and spas and sports opportunities to keep you busy, if lounging on flawless beaches that stretch like great pink and white pearls along the coast does not keep you fully entertained. Parks, picnics, horseback riding, and bus excursions are easily managed from this location for the perfect holiday.
Nearby there is a popular family style café, 2 large grocery stores ( The Marketplace and Whites Grocery and Pharmacy ) and Henry’s Pantry- a convenience store that sells, milk, bread, beer, wine and liquor and other incidentals . Moped Rentals: the nearest is Smatts Cycle Livery at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel. See website link to make arrangements and secure rates on the homepage under FOR YOUR INFORMATION.
The charming hamlet of Somerset Town is 15 minutes away with shops and cafes, and just beyond the town is the 200 year old Naval Dockyard, now converted into a museum and shopping concourse with pubs, crafts market, a para-sail operation, charter boats, beach facilities, etc. Ferry service back into Hamilton is regularly scheduled in addition to the bus service. There are very elegant hotels and fine dining available at this end of the island as well – one does not have to go into Hamilton to enjoy a good meal or cabaret. The South Shore Road is well served by public transit. Casual dining would include the Swizzle Inn, Henry VIII pub, Tio Pepes Cafe and others along the seaside. The closest golf course would be at the Southampton Princess, with Riddell’s Bay not far off and Port Royal 10 minutes or less west of the apartment.
The town of Hamilton is about 25-30 minutes away by bus, less by moped. One does have the attractive option of going over to Somerset or Dockyard (west of the apartment) for a jaunt across the harbour by ferry to Hamilton and on to St. Georges. Check schedules at the FOR YOUR INFORMATION section on the website where current schedules are provided by link. Reserve a day for the extensive Maritime Museum out at Dockyard on Ireland Island. There you will find meticulously restored historical buildings, craft shops and art galleries, pubs, cafes, and a bar on the beach at Snorkel Park within the Dockyard layout, shops and fascinating displays of items from Bermuda’s extraordinarily colorful past.
